Fairy of the Lake by CyberDagger Fairy of the Lake by CyberDagger
And here it is, the reason for my return, my rise from the ashes. Three months in the making, it started out as a simple sketch in my sketchbook that I liked and decided was good enough to turn into something more. I was very busy at the time and didn't have much time to work on it, so progress was slow. And with that, the more I looked at it, the more things wrong I saw in it, discouraging me entirely from working on it. I ended up taking a break, and not touching this for many days. In more recent times, I managed to mentally slap some sense into me, and decided I would finish this, even if it killed me. Well, a bit of exageration there, but that's the gist of it. And finish it I did, even if it ended up taking some of my study time.

This was my first experiment with SAI, and it shows. I was still getting used to the tools. I'll do better next time, but this is a necessary part of the learning process. To be honest, I actually am satisfied with it. I actually like SAI more than Photoshop for the actual drawing and painting process, though Photoshop is still invaluable for the post-processing.

But anyway, on to the really important news:

I. Am. Back.

This reminds me of another artist on here. The proportions both of you use look exactly alike.

Mind telling me which artist? Now you've made me curious.

TamaeFTT, except for the eyes, your works look so similar. I thought from the reddit thumbnail it was his work. But beware, he is a AB/DL artist as well. So if you don't like that kind of fetishy stuff, would'nt wanna look through his whole gallery.

I see what you mean, yeah. We do use similar proportions. Though I did draw Cirno purposefully with a childish appearance, older girls would have a leaner build. (Cirno's over 60 years old, I know. She still looks like a child.)

And don't worry, I've seen far more extreme stuff. A bunch of girls in diapers won't faze me.

And it's good to see some attention from Reddit. It was a bit disheartening to see this get so little attention compared to my quick doodles. I was already expecting my random art shares to get more attention, as they are by artists far better than me. But for a piece I worked months on to not get half the attention of doodles I made in minutes? It's crushing.

Yea, I find it horrifying when one of my best works ( which I cannot find from 1 year ago) has less attention than one scribble I made when I got bored on a test, and everyone started copying my 1 small scribble, and made it worse and worse every rendition of it that they drew. And what they did to one of my best works?
Nothing. I'd rather have that ruined, so it would look better. I am a horrid artist (this account is mainly for lurking), and I can't do much, because of my mental health. I wish I could be as talented as you. I always like this kind of art style.

Your praise makes me happy. I am far from a great artist, though. I have lots of trouble with action poses. I can't quite grasp perspective on objects that aren't made of blocks, which leads to the former problem. My mastery of anatomy leaves a lot to be desired. I can't draw machines to save my life, which sucks because I want to draw mechs for a story I'm cooking up, and it also means I have trouble with the powered armors of the characters of that shmup I'm planning.

So, I still have a lot to do. Still, comments like yours are great confidence boosters. I have faith that one day, I will become skilled enough to go pro with my art. I have the disavantage of having started late, but you'll see, one day I'll be doing all sorts of art for all sorts of projects.
