I suppose it’s time should give I should give an update on things. Unfortunately, I overestimated the processing power of my Surface Book, which uses an Intel Core i5. I was also hasty in claiming that using the drawing software Krita used less power than SketchBook Pro; as I kept using Krita, I realized that my computer was heating up just as much, if not more.
So despite finding a free and open-source software, my computer cannot handle the stress. Until I can find a better alternative that keeps my computer from melting, I’m not doing any more digital drawings. I still may post new sketches using ol’ fashioned ink and crayon, and perhaps some more older drawings. I’m very sorry for this and hope you all understand.
My first digital art for 2017! I finally found a new art software to use for my future projects! An free, open-source program called Krita (Click this link to go to their webpage) It’s actually better for my computer than the last program I used, because it doesn’t heat the processor as much.
So today I tried it out, and here’s the result. A little sloppy, but I’d say it’s decent practice. I call it the Scalene.

2013 was probably the last time I drew characters from cartoons on television–on a regular basis, anyway. Now I mostly draw my own characters, which I don’t show on this blog for reasons involving copyright (or lack thereof).
I tend to cringe at my older works, assumingly like many other artists, but in this post I’m going to show you a few of them (because I’m masochistic).
I drew these characters in crayon because I didn’t own a proper tablet at the time.

My purchasing goals have been reached, and I’m about to set up a larger online presence. It will take a moment, though. My Sketchbook Pro software no longer works on my Surface Book, so it will be a while before I post some NEW stuff.
I’ve also bought an ISBN and barcode for a small book that I’m about to publish soon, and am currently looking at printing companies near my living area.
I’ll try to pepper the followers of this blog with some older artwork before I start kicking into a higher gear. Happy 2017!
The brazen, brutish King of the Koopas is ready to pound on some plumbers! The lines here are a little rough, I know–I really just wanted to test my shading and fire-painting skills.
By the way, if you own a Wii U and don’t have Super Mario Maker, you’re missing out on a whole lot of fun and frustration.
I made these near the end of 2012. Can you solve them all? Leave your answers in the comments if you want to.
