StingRollin, Rollin, Rollin!

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 7, 2012, 1:23 AM
G'Day Everyone,

It has been quite a while since I did a bit of an update on here... not sure if anyone gives a rip but since I haven't been as active of late I thought I would put this up. :shrug:

I have just noticed that apparently I have been a deviant now for 2 years!! Man time flies.
I know a lot of people like to tear into this site and whinge about one thing or another but I haven't had any dramas at all here. I think it is a great place where we can all share our art, whether we are professional or like myself, just dabble in it when we have time.

What I have found most cool is that I have been able to follow some of my favourite artists such as :iconterrydodson:, :iconj-scott-campbell:, :iconthegregcapullo:, :iconsimonebianchi: amongst a heap of others and be able to hear their thoughts and get a firsthand look at their art. But aside from these dudes that get paid top dollar for their work there is some truly amazing and inspiring artists that like a lot of the rest of us are just doing it for fun. Anyone on my Watch list and to the future artists who will be on my Watch list I tip my hat to you all, you're all amazing artists and fantastic people. (If you should be on my Watch list let me know :D)

Anyway, if you have been with me for any period of time on here I am sure you would have noticed that anything arty from me has pretty much dried up of late.
It's a bit of a pain in the bum and I am itching to start getting pencil to paper again soon unfortunately things at work have been flat out and who thought being a brand new Dad could be so distracting. On the upside though I have completed the course I enrolled myself in so hopefully that will free me up a bit. Seriously… who's idea was it to do a full time course when I work full time and expecting my first child… glutton for punishment I am :XD:

I am pretty keen to get drawing again soon though, it will probably be quick and nasty stuff to begin with to try and get back into the swing of things and I want to finally finish colouring my Angela picture, the flats are done I just need to polish her off ;)

On a side note, the Group I currently handle :iconheroescorner: is going great guns, busting through the 700 member mark which is very cool.
If you are not already a member do yourself a favour and check it out.

Anyway, that's about it from me… how boring I know.
Regardless if I am posting art or not I am still usually hanging about in here so feel free to say G'Day if you feel so inclined or give me a kick up the bum if you want me to check out your art.

Until Next Time

SingRoll Out!

Hey hey! Good to hear from you and get an update. I think i also joined around the same time. Have to agree, it has been great with no drama. Lots of great art from pros and not-so-pros. But best thing for me is to meet stand-up fellows such as yourself. All th best and hope to see some new art soon.

Thank you good sir, I could say the same about your good self.

Hopefully I'll be able to pull the finger out and get some drawing done.

Good to hear from you - and glad that you're still managing to find time to look in! I joined DA a bit after you - but, like you say, it's mainly been smooth sailing and it's great inspiration to get access to the pros on here. I guess like any community - it's up to us to make of it what we will!
And I remember seeing your Angela pic - it's the one that reminds me a lot of Art Adams style because of the detail and precise lines. I'm surprised it's still your last - but hope you find some time to get cracking on more stuff soon - the world needs another installment of the sage of the mighty Snicken! :)

Well it's either actually do the work I am paid for or peruse dA. :D

I suppose you always get out of these things what you are prepared to put in. I like to think I am fairly positive and as such I haven't come across any real negativity.

Yeah, I have the colours waiting for me to make the time to finish them for Angela, I'll get there I am sure. I am itching to do some more drawing I just need to get my shit together so I can sit down with my sketch pad.
The Snicken will return no doubt :D
