Soooooo; we'll just sweep that last journal of drunken ramblings under the carpet & pretend it never existed
*Ahem* Anyways; so... As you can see; I've been able to get back to DA quite frequently recently (at least for the time being; till the kids go back to school. Might get a bit busier around then)
As such; when I went through the thumbnails of other artists in my DeviantWATCH folder; I actually ended up un-watching quite a few galleries.
Basically; a lot of these galleries I'd decided to watch a long
time ago, & my interest for the artwork/characters or whatever has waned over the years. I realised that I watch so many galleries; & never really have much interest in their content :/
So; in the end all I was doing was getting my DeviantWATCH messages folder flooded with artwork (reaching stupid numbers that would take me forever to sift through)
that I just wasn't particularly interested in commenting on. Or the artist had completely changed the style that drew me to their gallery in the first place, or what they were drawing just got repetitive or boring. One gallery in particular I really enjoyed his style; but I've noticed in recent years, every pic he's drawn has been of some giant breasted character. I have no problem with this sort of stuff; but every
picture? &; between you & me, I noticed that he only started whacking out these images when a pic he did of a giant boobed character got a lot of attention... All about the pageviews/faves right?
& no I'm not bashing people who draw these sort of things, I just tend to get bored of seeing the same thing from the same person. I mean I even un-watched another gallery that was drawing the same Skyrim character over & over & over... I think it's just a pet peeve of mine. Not saying it's wrong to draw the same thing/character, I just get a bit bored of repetition. I mean we all love drawing our favourite characters as often as we can; but we'll at least do something different once in a while. These galleries didn't; if you can believe that, & it even got to the point where they were becoming incredibly un-inventive. :/
Obviously I've not completely wiped my watch list; & there's still a lot of people on there whose work I enjoy. I just got rid of the galleries that I never really pay attention to anymore (even artists who weren't repetitive)
Ugh; why am I babbling about this? Is anyone even reading this tripe?
So despite all that; I'm slowly catching up with things like comments/ deviations/ online comics etc Art stuff?!
As far as drawing is concerned; time is a bit tight at the moment. I mean I managed to get a quick sketch down because my partner was here to deal with the baby when he wanted attention. But; when my partner is at work, the baby takes up a lot of my time. My two older kids are pretty good at dealing with themselves, & they're a lot easier to find something to do for them then a tiny baby who only wants milk; hugs & comfort
However; one thing I do plan on working on is certain projects that I've had going in the background. I.e. writing.
It's a lot easier for me to sit with my laptop getting things written down; & just moving the laptop out the way when I need to deal with the baby; then it is to have all my drawing supplies out only to have to move it all away again within a few minutes.
I do still plan on drawing when & where I can; of course
In fact; eventually I will have
to get some drawing done once I've gotten the writing done
I've completed one story; I'm now on the second, so keeping my fingers crossed that I'm able to keep on top of it
Ok I'd best shoot off, baby's got a bottle due at 2pm; & I'm typing this whilst also dealing with him at the same time. Multitask powers FTW
Hope you all have a happy & prosperous new year.
