Man it's been a while, eh? I started extrastilllife to force myself to do personal work on the side, and so far the only sketch that didn't have to do with Riot is this.
Not to worry. This is the beginning of a new era. I've got a ton of Riot work backed up and ready to show, some of which I'll be uploading on DA and cghub. Don't have too much written down these days, because most of it is short enough to fit in a tweet!
Anything you want is just a matter of time. Be patient and opportunities will present themselves.
Everyone loves to be sincerely flattered.
You know your own flaws, but you're afraid to admit them.
Stop yourself from ruminating. Recognize when you're having negative thoughts and get rid of them. The more you think the less you do.
Don't introduce new values into your painting unless you know that all the present ones are in the right place.
It should be more about shapes of value than strokes.
There are things that will fall in your lap, and there are things that you're too young for. Doesn't mean you won't get them ever. Be patient.
