Feature: Recent Favourites

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 8, 2014, 7:57 AM

It's (roughly) that time of the week again, where I showcase a selection of art that I've favourited over the past 7 days. I've been largely focused on browsing digital art and portraiture, so that will feature prominently. Please do click on the favourites link at the top of this journal, though, to browse through all my favourites and give support to some of the wonderful artists out there who are always inspiring me to keep learning.

I'm 36, and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. So I thought it was about time I finally threw myself into learning to draw and paint - something I always wanted to be able to do but let my frustration at initial failure and lack of talent get in the way of. Now I'm throwing myself into it I'm having a ball.

I've used dA as a place to upload a few of my video game screenshots for a while, but now I'm painting I'm realising what a great resource it is: I'm bowled over by the help and enthusiasm exhibited by members of various communities and groups, and I enjoy talking to people (so feel free to say hi) and especially love spending far too long browsing other people's art. I'd like to get more involved here as time goes on, I'm just trying to find my feet. I appreciate all the help I receive from everyone I've come across so far, and I aim to try to help others in whatever small ways I can.

In an attempt to keep my life compartmentalised, I have far too many websites. If you're at all interested, here they (most of them) are:

I put most of my video game screenshots here: and

My photography goes in these two places: & (some of my art goes in that second one as well).

Since I'm learning to draw and paint (frankly the painting is going better than the drawing - I'm rubbish at the drawing) I decided I needed a website just for that:

I have no idea what I'm doing. Do you?

Oh thank you so much! I haven't painted in a while. It took an awful lot of time and patience, and I'm easily distracted. I find the immediacy of screenshots a lot better suited to my flighty attention span ^^
