So, it's been several months since I've posted art or, well, done anything for myself in terms of my first love-- painting & drawing. I've been sewing up a storm after joining the SCA, and now I'm actually looking at cosplay. Given my age, I wonder if it's rational. I love games, but I love medieval history more. Perhaps if I stick to games with a strong historical influence in clothing, I'll feel all right.

Anyway, I'm looking at my fanfic again and am wondering where I should go with it. I had a great idea, but I realize I'm far too descriptive. I feel like I've concentrated too much on bringing out historical details than I have been about telling a story. Perhaps that's where my ability as an illustrator should take over, and I can go back and illustrate the scenes I write. I've wanted to do this anyway. I feel that it'll make me a better fantasy illustrator if I see things from the author's perspective.

My current plan is using a process I failed to use in my writing doodles: Create an outline, plot the path with the points & subpoints, then write my story within it. I feel like I'll work better if I plot my path. What are some things that you all use? I'm considering messing with Nanowrimo this time, but I'm not sure yet. I feel like it'll end up being more of a burden than a help.
I'm just advertising.

So, I've started using :icondahub:dAhub the same way I work Microtasking sites. Every little bit helps, and I had figured that by using dAhub I could do the same, but for my DA endeavors. A few cents at a time isn't too bad, and you all may like it too. Go for it, try it out. It's just like hitting the Random DA button, but getting paid to do it. I've found a lot of art that I really do enjoy, so I make sure my watches and favs are real. I'm going to invite some of the artists into my other groups, too. :D

See, it all works out.

:points: Points to make my groups super! :points:
I've decided to use most of my points towards all 4 groups I run, 2 being on another account. I'm mainly using DA hub for that now, but kudos if you want to help out as well.
