I absolutely love digital painting, although I started with pencils and pens I fell in love with photoshop during my first doodle using this amazing piece of software.
In June 2011 I started practicing art daily with high hopes of becoming a professional after dropping out of a Computer Science degree (that I completely failed), against all odds I kept on drawing and painting although I didn't always have a steady source of income or any income at all at times, nor did I get the support that would have helped me. Nevertheless, I kept on drawing and painting, there was nothing else I could have done.
Doing art has become a strong habit that nowadays I can't live without, and my drive to become a professional artist has given me the option to earn a living doing what I love.

Hello fellows, how have you been?
I've been missing dA sorely and wanted to share what's going on with me and if some of you wondered, why am I taking so long to answer your replies.
Yes, there is the general procrastination when times are more relaxed and it takes me some time to answer comments and interact with you awesome people but right now times aren't relaxed, I got to the point where I'm so busy that I don't have time for anything else much except work and then some more work.
So what am I up to nowadays? I'm working as a concept artist, UI designer and asset designer for a really cool computer game with a super cool company here in Israel. I'll share more details with you about it when it comes out, it's supposed to be hush hush for now, but in my opinion, it's a big project (my first big project too)! I enjoy working there in the studio, the people are uniquely awesome, each and every one of them. This is the dream I've been working towards since 2011, painting for a living and working in a studio.
Now that I've achieved this dream, I can only think in terms of my personal projects.
Unfortunately, I also took a bunch of freelance projects as well and I'm working on them when I come back home from the studio. It was unwise of me to load myself with so much work, but it will end tomorrow. A freelance project for an Israeli newspaper will be done today and I'll have more time to relax, read a book, paint for myself, enjoy life, chat on dA and write some more :)

My inactivity here was productivity elsewhere. This is how it works, you have to be careful with the time you have and invest it wisely because time is the scarcest resource we have and the most precious one at that. Myself, I'm not always wise with my time and think of myself in superman terms, which doesn't fail to fail me.

I'm working now on finishing the freelance projects, attaining the studio job and massively working on Wolfgang's Quest (my personal project) only after the freelance jobs will be done. Nothing else. I've decided to release the first chapter of Wolfgang's Quest individually when it's ready before I even start work on the subsequent chapters. 

One last thing, if anyone wondered about a forum post I made regarding the art feature I'll be doing, I'll get to that this weekend. No worries, I haven't forgotten!
There are still two art pieces I promised to two deviants, which might happen this weekend.

All right, let me know how you are doing and what you are up to. What's been going on? How are things? What major things do you revolve around this time of the year?

Cheers,
Love,
As always,

Sir Towel the Salty.
