  • Playing: diablo 3: reaper of souls
Been a little obsessed with gaming lately. Diablo 3 has kinda taken over for a bit, and I regret nothing.
And Gundam building. I'm currently trying to get my hands on each version of the mechs and mobile suits from Gundam Wing to have the collection. I've been putting them together and it's been hard to stop, no matter how much my hands hurt. But the trips down memory lane are always worth it. 

Posting my deviantART story the other day has made me further evaluate my work. I'm not at the skill level I want to be, or at the level that I thought I would by now. I know my wonderful upbringing Roll Eyes  is an 'excuse' but as I am now disabled with all of this free time on my hands, I feel that is no longer a valid one. I lack a formal art education of any kind, I am completely self-taught by trial and error, so I feel I need to go back and find what people are usually taught in an art class. (I had two art classes in high school; one considered what Jackson Pollock did to be serious art, and the other teacher couldn't draw a straight line with a ruler. So naturally I feel that I'm lacking.) 

I've gone back to basics with pencils but now I need to re-learn everything I thought I knew. Thank goodness for online tutorials! I am very excited for this process. 

I am trying not to let this whole 'being disabled' thing bother me. Because it really has been. I've been a workaholic for the majority of my career/adult life, and I equated my being able to work to being useful and worthwhile and now that I can't, I have felt like a huge piece of me is missing. I am slowly learning that it's ok if I can't work and if I'm too weak to drive or even open a bottle of juice, to just do what I can on the good days. So I am going to insert what I want to do with my art into that empty space and see if I can't get over this little bump. Art has helped me out of worse situations. 
[The only thing I've enjoyed about not being able to work is the sleeping in and the part where I can catch up on my reading at night.]

I am having a huge smokey quartz necklace commissioned by a fellow artist in Australia and I am so excited I had to mention it here! :XD: /random insertion.

I am now off to get artwork done. And hopefully post something before this year is over.
