Stressful part is almost over (I close may 1st) on a 3 bedroom house minutes from where I currently live, closer to my work and in a great area.

I cannot wait to move in (June 1st) and start going crazy with the paint/upgrades, studio setup. It's actually in decent shape right now so it doesn't need much work.

plus side to owning vs. renting: I get to garden, paint it how I want and I'm on a list for my first puppy which may not come until this fall!

negative: I'm about to be pretty much house poor, I've signed a contract which owns me until I'm old and gray and because I'm a single person if anything happens to my job there's no buffer of a second income to float me thru hard times.

All in all I'm thrilled though & will share pictures as the place comes along especially once puppy arrives!

oh boy, a bio section. rawr.

I've been creating pieces for 8 years now & would be classified as autodidact-hobbyist; while yes I do get paid for some of my work, it's in no way the primary source of income for me nor do I have a [current] desire for it to be.

The second that changes you'll all know because I'll be pushing for my work to be in magazines [more often] and doing a lot more traditional work as I feel my style of work translates best to gallery setting (as opposed to concept artist).

Because it is my secondary source of income & I do it for funzies I don't tend to complete pieces the way I should like (especially recently as I work about 10 hours a day for da man coming home to try and refine work seems nigh impossible).

I have dreams of having more time to do more projects but bottom line is you have to pick between pleasure and necessity sometimes & for me right now the two worlds don't co-exist.

Do you plan on doing any more "Madonna and Venus" pics, because they're amazing :D

I hadn't really thought about it at all honestly.

Currently undecided is my best response I suppose ha

There are so many accounts of people who are talented painters but create things that look cool but have little meaning. You, you excellent artist of a person, are a great painter but on other terms are not like the others at all! I think every piece you make is so original, and you use such great colors to relay feeling. You are so creative and that's what artists should be like.
Your pictures are worth much more than a thousand words.

Haha sorry for the drawing, my epic skills won't ever match yours!

Just read your new bio. I feel the same about personal art being an optional hobby. Can't seem to get myself going after hours painting at work.

I've been away for quite a while too, I must agree with below! I also look forward to participating in your next contest, they really help get my creative juices flowing, always fun!
cypherx Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh hell, thanks.

On the ContextX thing: not so sure when I'll be having another one. I really should throw one together this summer I suppose. I honestly love doing them but now deviantart has nice big contests so almost feels silly doing mine!
geeiaabidge Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012
You should! :D I know DA has some big ones, but the subjects/categories you choose are so interesting! Besides, the big DA ones don't seem to have the spirited community feel of participating in yours! Either way, it's good to be back on DA, see you around!
cypherx Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well I really thought I would give it a go, but honestly i think people's interest has waned for these sorts of things. I haven't even got a full crew of judges let alone real interest in partaking (except a few which is good but not enough to throw something together!).

I'll prob see if it picks up but right now as it stands it doesn't look like I'll be doing one again.

I've been away from DA for a quite a couple of years - must say, I've missed seeing your work c:

Comments like this make my afternoon just a little bit brighter; even on an already gorgeous day such as today :)
