After joining and disappearing last year I'm finally back.
My health took a drastic turn for a while and I've mostly spent this last year in and out of the hospital so I haven't been able to keep up with my artistic pursuits.
On a good note though, my health is getting better as my doctors and I slowly put together the pieces and figure out what all is wrong with me and my body.
Since my health is on the up and up I've been a lot more manic these past few months.
This manic episode has actually brought me back to being my truest self. I'm feeling more like me than I ever have in my life
which is why I'm coming back to dA!
But wait, THERE'S MORE
This happened years ago, but before I left dA back in like 2011 I got a wacom bamboo tablet. I had just started to use it but I stopped for the same reason I left dA, which was due to losing my home, moving to a new state and having one of my first bipolar cycles.
Since then I ended up living in North Carolina and have moved three times so my tablet was always stored away somewhere and since I never learned to use it, I didn't care to look for it.
In the past few years I've gotten really sick due to syndromes and disorders, so I've spent a lot more time at home, especially these last few months
Since I've been feeling better recently but am still not reliable enough to be able to work much or leave my house much, I've been going back to my true self
This means a lot of reading, movie and tv show watching (especially anime), playing sims, and now more drawing and art again!!
So I found my bamboo tablet, hooked it up to my computer and started drawing again.
I'm gonna give you guys a preview. I recently attempted
a portrait when messing around with Sketchbook again (so please don't laugh) and I started to draw Yukio Okumura from the mange/anime Blue Exorcist. My hands started to get tired so for right now y'all get a shirtless Yukio! He may stay this way, I may clothe him, who knows? Find out soon
