Just to let you know I'm still alive. :D

I've been busy with another book cover over December and January. It's done, just need permission to submit here. Meanwhile I made a wee SasuSaku fanart for you. I have so many ideas for new art projects! But oh, to find the time.  We're looking to immigrate to New Zealand actually. (I'm going to be a Hobbit, yay!) Wish us the best, it's a long and stressful process.
Meanwhile I'll see if I can get some more fanart up for you. Gotta keep those skills honed.

I've found some lovely process videos on youtube:
Sycra is worth a look :…
And Aaron Blaise used to work for Disney :…
Jaw-dropping, inspiring work. I feel myself improve by just watching these masters at work.
Before watching some of these YT videos I never realized that one should warm up before drawing (and you warm up for drawing BY drawing, lol). Never too old to learn, hey?

Let me know how your year has been so far? How are you improving your art? Have any art tutorials or videos to link?

And lastly....
I noticed I've hit 100 K page views. Yay! Thank you for all the support over the years.

Love you guys!

Great art is not necessarily perfect art.

The photo belongs to Soulriser; I contacted her and she says it is fine for you to go ahead and use it. :)
