I've been working really hard on improving my art and I've been doing a lot of studies and trying a lot of new things lately. I've realized how far I've come on my artistic journey over the years. Like holy shit I look at some of the first pictures I did digitally that I was so proud of and look at my art now and it's like "OMFG when I was 17 I would have killed to draw like this!!!"
So if you're feelin down about your art, just look at some old pieces and really reflect on how much you actually have learned and improved!
Randomrant aside, I got a Cintiq 13HD recently! I love it! Only problem is, I can only use it with my Macbook I need a new graphics card for my desktop to be able to use it there. Which means I can't stream with it once I get the new card. My Mac is too old for that stuff which is why I haven't been posting any speedpaint videos lately. I can stream from the desktop with my old Intuos, but my pen broke I have no idea how it happened. And while the Cintiq pen works with it, it's a little janky and doesn't map to the screen correctly so it's really annoying.
So I am still going to try streaming more with the Intuos, though I don't really have a set schedule. I made a twitter account to post art and WIPs on, but mostly to announce when I'm gonna be streaming. So if you want to watch, follow me on Twitter to find out when!

Refined // Colored Sketches:
As of right now 50% of all commission profits will be going toward a new graphics card so I can livestream regularly! (Also so I can actually use my tablet on a computer that doesn't lag so bad x.x The other 50% goes toward buying food and paying bills cause being an adult is a soul-sucking task)
