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.

Which in practice is a lot less complicated than it sounds, but I need to condense the science part a bit to make it more accessible to laypersons. OTHER THAN THAT THOUGH I want to see what the art community on dreamwidth is up to!
