Alright, first of all, I'm in love with this. When I realized this was made traditionally I literally freaked out. I suck at traditiona...

The coloring for this page is fantastic! In my opinion I find it much more enjoyable then the original colors. Bunnie looks spectacular...

Hello...?  Helloooooo....?  Is there anybody out there?

Oh...oh, good, I see some people.  I was afraid you guys had forgotten about me.  Well, it's perfectly understandable as I've been layin low for awhile.  Shh!  Shh!  Simmer down a bit and I'll let you know a few of the haps from around my part of town, but I gotta be quiet or they'll find me out and get me...

...who's gonna get me you ask?  Ummm....the man, y'know?  The big ol' people who everyone's afraid of?  Life?  Growing up?  Responsibility?  All those things there, they are the real culprits of shadow leanin' over your shoulder wanting to suck the dreams out of you...but that's A-okay!!!  (Shiznaps, I gotta keep it down...) I mean some day you gotta turn around and face those demons and take it all in...take in all the hell...all the truth.  

Okay, in all seriousness...Hey!  How's it going my friends?  I'm so so so so so so so sorry for being away for so long!  Like I know I've posted "a couple" things this year so far....but c'mon, I should have more out here by now right?  I'll tell you folks who don't have much time on your hands reading this the short version of everything that's been going on....well kinda short.  I might ramble.

Short story point form about life....GO!

-I finished my first year of University!  Booyah!
-...except I was majoring in Contemporary Art and hated it (except the people I met, they were awesome!)
-I don't know what to do about school because I didn't learn anything useful for what I want to do
-Speaking of which....I don't know what to do with my life...
-I'm being pressured by my parents to keep going to school
-....but instead of just barging into classes I don't know anything about I'm going to take some time for a little break and to do some research on what I should do.
-There are more family problems that I won't get into
-I turned 19 in February so I can legally drink alcohol holla!
-I got my Class 5 License!!  Hooray!
-I met a beautiful girl a few months ago who is now my girlfriend and is incredibly sweet, supportive, makes me feel happy, and yeah... :3
-I've been doubting my skills as a comic artist
-I have so many ideas for comics/graphic novels but I don't feel I'm good enough to get them out there yet
-I need to find a way to brush up my skills
-I've never had any lessons or anything related to comic art...like perspective, anatomy, color theory, page design, etc...I'm pretty much all self taught
-I don't draw nearly enough, but in my time offline I've been getting a lot done
-I have pages and pages and pages of ideas, concepts, drawings, sketches, characters, plot points, and story layouts done
-I have written drafts of the script for my first idea for a comic, written the beginning, and completed the lineart for around 6 pages
-I am debating making this story a webcomic because it's the first thing I've really done and it's kind of like practice
-Guys, I'm just really into comics and fiction that I want to do something with it but I'm nervous to get into that world and I don't know where to start....
-I can do this though, I know I will...even if it doesn't go anywhere I want to try because I love it so much

Basically where I am right now is a semi-good place.  I would love to follow my dreams but I need to be smart about it.  I'm definitely going to be either taking lessons, doing some online tutorials or courses or something to get better, and I think I'm going to be putting my first story out there as a webcomic to get a good routine going.  

Oh!  Another news alert!  My computer is a piece of crap and I can't use photoshop or anything on it because there isn't enough temporary disc space and it's my family computer....so I think it's finally time for me to get my own computer and a new tablet.  I was thinking of getting the Wacom Cintiq Companion 2 so I'm going to go demo it in a few days to see if I like it.

That is probably it for updates.  If you read this all the way through then thanks for sticking with me!  I won't have much art out until I get a new computer but I'll keep myself busy as I learn some more and sort things out.  

I'll see you guys soon!

Spiral Island Concept by Ziggyfin

This is my first illustration that was coloured on my brand new Wacom Cintiq Companion 2!  This took awhile as I'm still getting used to using it, but expect some more doodles soon as I figure this bad boy out!

Seamus Character Poster by Ziggyfin
Seamus Character Poster

Welcome to the fictional world of Evalla! Evalla is a place where Elves, Men, Thoots, Hekets, Goblins, and other races coexist and work toward making the world a better place…for the most part.

This is the story of Seamus, a young man who moves to the spiral shaped island.  Along with making new friends, Seamus attends the local school, joins the island’s historic game of Hoop Ball, gets a girlfriend, and becomes mixed in with the illegal Scrapper tournaments.  Will Seamus be able to juggle all of these things at once or will he give in to the pounding stress of a busy life?

This fable consists of fantasy, action, and humour, and is the first story that resides in the utopian world I am creating.

Do you take requests or art trades?

I do not. It's not that I don't want to, and I was actually planning on opening requests a couple weeks back, but then I realized I'm just gonna be too busy with University. Commissions are open, and I'm listening to everything my watchers say. So if you ever say like "it would be cool if you drew Mighty the Armadillo" who knows? Maybe I'll draw a pic of him. :)

I gonna admit, I was surprised that you declined my offer to you to join my group, Cartoon-Chaos. Why did you? You're one of the best artists I've seen and known in DeviantART. You deserve a place in my group.

I'm still a bit confused by how groups work on this site.  I'm not regularly on because I'm very busy irl, and I rarely post anything, so I don't really want to put myself in a bunch of groups if I can't contribute.  I'm trying to limit how many artists I'm watching and I've hidden all messages from groups that I've submitted to because I just don't have time to go through all my messages.  It's not to say I don't want to be involved.  If I didn't have school or a job I would be trying to be part of the deviantart community as much as possible, but I need to prioritize my focus to my studies.

If I join a group, do I have to be a frequent contributor?  I guess I just don't understand how groups function...XD
