age: 26
are you in art school? A big ol' nope on that one.
where you at: [ profile] callmewingus | [ profile] callmewingus | [ profile] wingus
what mediums do you use? Primarily digital these days (Easy Paint Tool SAI, FireAlpaca), but I keep a sketchbook and pencil around. Dabbled in colored pencil and acrylic.
whaddya want: I want to draw cool things for myself and hope that other people find them cool. I've got a desire to eventually do a webcomic that's been simmering for years, but I still need to act on it. I've kind of long since given upon any kinds of lofty artistic aspirations and just doin' it for fun and profit when I can manage it.

Yeah, that's one of the big things holding me back. Ideally, I'd want to a whole damn story arc before starting, but then that starts to conflict with the "DAMN IT I WANT TO SHOW SOMEONE THIS" urge.

...that, and how the hell does building a website even work. Or paying for one.
callmewing: (Hmmm...)

I know there's Smackjeeves and Comicpress. :|a I'd ideally want something that could be customized to give it a more... I guess legitimate feel, would be the way to word it. For that, I'd need the help of someone who knows coding/HTML/etc, though.

Now that I think about it, I should probably stop fretting over the daunting things like HOW DO I WEBSITE and actually work on material first. Then cross the website bridge when I actually have stuff to have a website for.
