Manga Studio Is Fun! by ShinySilver
Manga Studio Is Fun!
Who doesn't love looking all bishounen every once in a while?  I'm figuring this program out and enjoying the tools so far.  Hopefully it will be an asset in an upcoming project.

Happy 2015!

Okay.  I've been negligent on here, but that's happened before over the years, so it's no surprise.  My motivation to create art has a definite wax and wane.  Especially considering the year I've had.  I've needed to put more focus on me, and, when I can, my writing.

I came out earlier this year to friends and family as transgender, which might have surprised some people.  Gender identity is something I mostly lacked as a child and struggled with most of my adult life.  It was easier, to me, to shove myself to the end of the spectrum I thought I was obligated to be on, and work very hard to make it seem as though I fit in there, than it was to admit to myself that I was miserable.  It's still difficult for me to not feel selfish when dealing with any sort of emotion (yay childhood trauma!), so admitting to having feelings in such a public way has been both mortifying and humbling.  Being known as transgender in most aspects of my life has eliminated a lot of carefully cultivated privacy.  And yet, almost everyone--friends, family, acquaintances, strangers--have been wonderful.  I'm very lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people.

So my year has been busy, and scary, and wonderful, and art's taken a backseat, as it does in most aspects of my life.  Book two of the Hartsborn trilogy, The Black Lute is crawling along.  It's all coming together.

Thanks to all who watch and read.  It does mean a lot to me.

It's been ages since I've uploaded on here, hasn't it?  I won't lie by saying I haven't come close to deleting this account several times over the last couple years, but I do like having a place for all my dumb experiments to rest and I love seeing everyone else's work too much to ever really leave.

Lately, I've been playing around more with digital coloring, line work, and the like, and have been getting it down a little better every time.  Eventually I might even be okay at it.  I do sometimes like sketching out my characters from the Hartsborn series.

Anyway, enjoy!

As you might have noticed, I finally got around to posting a few more photographs from my trip to Europe earlier this year.  I'm afraid I've done little else post-worthy in the meantime, thought I did (tentatively) finish The White Hart in August.

Not much else to report.  Sorry about that.
