Well not exactly, but MAN has it been a long time since I've been on the Otaku. I suppose when you have 2 jobs and other responsibilities to deal with, well, THIS happens!
Not to mention that I haven't picked up a pencil in months and, yeah, I'm pretty rusty right now.
I've just put up a few pics so I hope you guys enjoy them. So sorry for the disappearing act but now I'm back - as much as my schedule allows anyways.

Brain Freeze!!!!
CRAP!!! I'm having one of those periods where I want to draw but my hand seems to lose communication with my brain, and my pics look like something David Hasselhoff in a drunken stupor, blindfolded, could have pulled off - except better! O.o
The last time I was in this funk, I went a good three months or so without picking up a pencil or pen. I hope that's not what's happenning to me, because that would really, REALLY suck!!! X(

   SF, Where "Art" Thou?
I'm a little bummed out about the lack of art in the Streetfighter section- nobody seems to go there much and I got a good amount of SF stuff in there. What gives?
I mean, I go to the arcades once in a while and the majority of gamers there just literally huddle around the SF3 & Capcom v. SNK booths while the poor 3D fighters, like Soulcaliber 2, are practically ignored.(big fan of that, BTW!)
Naturally, I assumed that SF is still big. But yet I get the impression that here, most of my fellow Otakus beg to differ! is it just me or am I on to something? Guess I'm taking it a bit hard because I'm such big fan of the series.
Except for SF the (live action) movie-the game, that game blowed and so did the movie. Never heard of the game? There's a reason for that! Also marked the beginning of the end of Van Damm's career in my opinion.
Van "DAMNED", indeed! LOL

   Me???..........A Convert to PhotoShop???
Hmmm! It wasn't too long ago that I thought I'd never get the hang of colors let alone dealing with PS. Heck, if someone were to hand me this "Tablet" thingy I've been hearing about I'd be embarassed right off my computer. But, would you believe I'm getting the hang of PS? Still clueless on the whole masking crap and other technical stuff, but the basic stuff, like layering, I'm learning pretty well.

Now I know what I said before about colors and PS and honestly I still prefer the B/W sketchy look. But that doesn't mean I won't give something I'm not too familiar with a try. Besides, I have to admit that my later submissions do look alot better colored this way and with more practice, I'm bound to improve more.
I wonder though, how many of my fellow artists out there feel this way? And what the heck is this Tablet thing anyways, is it similar to photoshop? I've seen artwork here that was done using a Tablet with fantastic results, but I couldn't tell if it wasn't mentioned that it was done either on Tablet or PS. What's the diff?
I'm such a computer spaz! :(

   Guess What Tommorow Is?.....
Yep, that dreaded day! That time of year when you're once again reminded by that dopey duo walking hand in hand down the street that not once in your life have you had the honor of experiencing what they're experiencing and, in vile contempt, turn around, thumb your nose at them, say "Screw you!!!" run home and entomb yourself in your room until the chuckling, snickering Man-cupid in his woefully undersized diapers hovering out side your window with his stupid little bow & arrow play set making menacing hand and face gestures at you as if to say "Come out, Bitch!" decides you won't come out out of hiding after all and then flies away.

Well, at least I used to feel that way, and in many ways I still do. But rather than being too bitter about it I've figured out how to actually feel good on this dark day. I don't have that special someone in my life to give a rose to, so what I'll do is go to work tommorow and give ALL the female co-workers a rose. It's what I did last year to much praise and so I'll do it again this year. although it still sux to be lonely, at least by doing this, I'll be loved for at least one day. One day out of 365; that's not too bad, is it?
