    Tonight I tried a really nice caramel flavoured ice cream which is a bit rich and creamy. Very nice.

    I know the feeling about time! I feel like we need a holiday and hopefully get some art done. I do have an idea to draw for this month's art challenge though hopefully I can get something sketched up this week.

    Caramel flavoured ice cream sounds nice, should try one sometime.

    We need to have Monday's off just for the artists :p I'm slowly working on an artwork based on an article I read last year, taking my time ;)

    It was a "Caramel Mud" that I tried, think it might be Streets or something. I don't mind the salted caramel but usually not my go to when there are other options like chocolate.

    Oh, I definitely can get behind days off just for art. I finally roughed out the layout for the piece I'm planning. Then I can get stuck into the construction.

    I'll have to look out for the brand. I tend to stick with something simple like vanilla, but I should branch out on occassions :p

    By the way, what program do you use for your art?

    I do love the French Vanilla Bean one which is really nice.

    I mostly use photoshop. I've also been dabbling with Blender. Mostly to get back into 3D but there are some impressive features in there for 2D work which is giving me ideas.


    What do you use?

    I use Procreate on a normal iPad with an Apple Pencil, and I find it really great. I might be biased since it's the only thing I've used for digital art, but it's going good so far!

    Nope, not really :p Probably just get out of my comfort zone and practice anatomy, which I have been improving on ;)

    I hope that things eases up.

    Procreate is very good.

    My goals for the year… are to keep on creating… whether its art or writing. Maybe get some modelling done too.

    @Khalia Octa - Keep going, you got this! The more you work at it the better you're going to get. ^^
    @Corellian_Outrider - That's what I hear about Procreate; Photoshop and Illustrator are my jam. And creating is just the best way to go. ^^

    I need to learn more and spend some time with Illustrator. My last few attempts had been a bit frustrating though someday I'll get the hang of it.

    Still chipping away at the artwork for the romance challenge. Not sure if it'll be done in time but it is starting to look presentable.

    I hope everyone is keeping safe and sound.

    With the disruptions we've had the last week, I have yet to sit down to draw.

    I'll be wrapping up the art challenge soon. I also want to have a new banner for the forum. Think it be a fun idea to have a challenge where everyone creates their own piece to be composited together as a new banner? Could do one per season.

    Well hello there.

    So I swear I do pictures... but before I could get into it, I got distracted by a guy, a shrink, a break up... and then a pandemic. So it's been... just... not my usual a-game. But now I have the time to do some of these goals that I set for myself.

    My hot beverage of choice is green tea, honey, lemon... and a smidge of whiskey (I am over 21 and don't endorse underage drinking; DON'T DO IT!). Also known as a Hot Tottie. Good for sickness and nerves. Otherwise a chocolatey coffee is lovely.

    I've been working offsite, so that's awesome (legit, very blessed to have that option right now), so my desk and computer are set up in front of my my window, my fluffy orange cat is my sidekick... it's just perfect conditions for a beginner artist!

    Heya.

    It's all been a bit crazy with everything but I hope you had a chance to sit down and draw :) I look forward to seeing some of your works, @AllTheSingleMaras

    I hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter / Bunny Day weekend!

    Have you found the Easter egg in the banner? ;)

    I have been seeing the SixFanArt challenge going about Insta. Tempting to work on that but I need to finish the projects I have.
