first off, i'm not dead, just mostly dead
i still lurk on DA every day, though really all i do now is vote pics in The Airport or LAF, but now that my message center is approaching 5000, its time to go through everything again and become active (comment and fave-wise that is
) for a few days until i'm back down to zero, then return to lurker status again
honestly i dont think these short bursts of activity between long stretches of inactivity are gonna change anytime soon, it seems to be the only way i can stay somewhat "active" on DA with a 40 hour work week...
but i'm still drawing and have plenty ideas for both DA and FA
in fact i'm working on two projects right now that might take a while to complete, but will still be relevant by the time they're done!
they're both comics... fairly large scale comics too that will have multiple pages. one is a political satire comic involving Sharky and the other is about aeromorphs, and they're both gonna be a little different than other comics i've done cuz both will be VERY dialog heavy...meaning speech bubbles that take up most of a panel instead of actual art x3 but more dialog means more ideas conveyed, which is kinda why i switched to comics as my main style last year instead of full page pics like before
you can get so much more across in a comic and draw out more complex ideas that way, it really is the perfect medium between single scene pics and written literature (both of which i am not very good at anymore
