This is sort of a 'proof of progress' piece.
By that I mean it's related to the whole ADHD thing. As in, now that I'm on meds, I can work on things like this. I just worked on this thing for hours, until my knuckles cramped up, and here I am putting it up on the web and all that on top of all the drawing.
Yes, yes, I am in fact alive. Shocking, I know.
A few things before I launch into my... whatever stream of conscience madness I'm preparing to unleash.
COMMENTS: I believe that I have fixed the comment issue that was screwing up registered users; I finally set it so they can just straight up bypass the spam filter.
This is a tough bastard of a blog entry to write. Most of these, when I update them, are pretty meaningless and not well thought out. Hell, half of them are stream-of-consciousness, so there's no forethought in them at all.
This one's gonna be different. I've been thinking about this one for weeks now.
I'm going to stop doing commissions.
I am so busy.
No, really. This isn't like 'busy getting top tier gear through raidng in warcraft' busy, or 'I took a second job scrubbing shitters for cash desperation' busy.
I had a request to add in some Cafepress junk based on my old raging code monkey pic, so I cleaned it up (a little; I'm lazy) and loaded it up there.

So I got a full copy of painter last month on sale, because I want to expand my digital art skills. Some of the work I see artists create using painter blows my mind; it seems to have a flow and organic feel to it that's lacking in more technical programs like Photoshop.
The only problem is, I have no idea how to use it.
