Personal Quote: Time to break out the art kit!
    Wow, it's been a while since I last wrote one of these.  Last time, I think it was when I was still freaking out about how awesome Castle Crashers is.  Totally dressed up as the green knight for Halloween last year, too.  Had to use a LOT of duct tape, spray paint, and a plastic trash can for my helmet.  Ruined one of my hoodies and felt REALLY messed up for a bit, but still, TOTALLY worth it.
    Anyway, I've been working on a new style of drawing.  Yeah, I kinda stopped drawing on the computer and went back to pencil and paper.  On the plus side, if I can figure this new style out, I won't have to use bases any more!  However, I've recently discovered that using a black marker to ink in all the lines looks REALLY bad.  I mean, yikes.  The fine tip sharpies are ok, but mine's about to die, and I can't afford another one any time soon.  Also, using a Crayola marker for the skin looks very unprofessional.  Sure, 'Sandy Tan' looks a lot like flesh tones, but... Well, I'm not too impressed. For now, I'll just stick to using an orange colored pencil.  Color it on, erase it off, and boom.  Perfect for drawing people of the... caucasian persuasion.  As for the marker, I could probably use it for shadows if I want a cell-shaded look, but I'll keep my options open.  So, yeah.  That's pretty much it.  I'll upload some pictures as soon as I get around to it, but don't hold your breath.  Gonna get back to training now.  These pictures aren't gonna draw themselves.  Later!
