My time here on DA has been much more on the comment end of other peoples work as compared to the posting of my own work.  I have attempted to cultivate a level of conversation with many different artists on here in many different mediums because I find their works inspirational.  This has ranged from photographers to sculptors, inkers to pencil artists, cosplayers to character designers, the list goes on.  This year has marked a difference from past years as I find myself actually trying to help donate money into various projects that artists are launching.

The most recent example has been :iconomar-dogan: comic entitled "5th Capsule".  It is fresh and different from what I normally read, but it taps into something that everyone enjoys the feel of, youth.  Not to be outdone by youth, I also intend to dump copious amounts of money at :iconshiniez: whenever he gets around to allowing people to do that for his phenomenal work that is "Sunstone".

Beyond all this... I want to start something that I can focus more of my creative energies at.  Guild Wars 2 has been fun in creating characters and letting me interact with and meet new people from not just around the country, but the world as well.  I don't want to just sit and make characters to play with though, I want to make something that other people would want to interact with.  I have many stories in my head that I would love to get out in one way or another, writing or drawing a comic I know not which yet, but I HAVE TO GET IT OUT of my head cause as enjoyable as I think it is, it's no fun keeping it all to myself.

The greatest joy I have experienced as an artist so far, was 3 years ago when I was taking art classes.  A piece I did was selected for viewing at the end of semester art review.  Thousands of pieces were submitted and only 60-70 were selected, mine being one. To me, that was fun and awesome at the same time.  Given the opportunity, who wouldn't want to try to experience that again?
