Melfinger by ManFox
Melfinger
Once upon a time, there was an evil dictator, nigh all-powerful and with an unimaginable amount of resources at her disposal.

Or at least that's what she liked to think.


Art thingie for a friend! She likes money. And cardboard. Lots of both.

Shark, art, and the handsome person uploading this is, has or belongs to me!

[Gift] Gareth Pixel Icon (Animated)
So I'm finally done with the commissions, and the first major thing I do is another thing for someone else. Wheee! :D

I did enjoy messing with this, though. An animated Pixel Icon of a friend's RP character, Gareth, who is a werewolf-former-lynx. This one shows both of his forms. Original version came without the pixellated watermark, obviously.

First time I ever animated anything! I know it's just a minor blinking/fade-in/out animation, but I'm happy with how it turned out nontheless. Animating is quite a lot of fun, so maybe if I ever find something better suited for it than Photoshop that I can actually get my hands on, I might delve a little deeper! In the meantime, I'll just stick to pixel art for animations. That's nicely doable with Photoshop's capablilities. Also there's something oddly therapeutic about making pixel art.

Merry Christmas, also! Or whichever holiday you prefer. Winter-een-mas. That's a nice one.

I'm... done. With the commission series. Which I suppose is somethign that hasn't quite settled in yet, because right now I just feel tired rather than celebratory. I'm probably heading to bed after I finished writing this.

This isn't going to be a big plan journal, or describe what's been going on in my life. I want to take this journal to apologize to... everyone who ever cared, really. I don't know how many of you are left, but if anyone who reads this feels spoken to, it's a worthwhile journal to me.

I have not been active lately. Over the past two years or so. At all. I've blamed that on quite a few things. Mostly depression. I'm not out of depression yet, but I still feel like it's not an acceptable excuse for abandoning my hobby the way I did. Or my passion. I'm not sure if calling drawing a passion is appropriate at this point anymore. Not because I doubt that drawing is important to me, but because it's been nearly impossible for me for a long time now to really [b]feel[/b] passion. Everything's just mostly been "Occupation" or "things I just kind of do". But anyway. Not the topic.

I want to use this opportunity to apologize to any and all people I disappointed by just disappearing the way I did. I was never really gone, but I sort of stopped updating my art sites, both FA and dA. Which I don't know if anyone really gives a toss anymore, but as I said. I just want to get this out there.
I want to say I want to try to be better now. I want to say that I have great plans for the future and most of all I want to promise that something like this will not happen again. But I can't. Because I simply don't know if I can make that promise. I know I can't make it right now. My "plans", as things are, haven't changed much. I'll try to get my fucked brain fixed, and now that I am actually free of commissions, I will most certainly start experimenting more again. Just starting random drawings when I feel like it. experimenting in different styles, different mediums. I want to try modding. Making texture mods for SL avatars. I want to refine my sketching, I want to get this nice, dirty-but-awesome look to my sketches that I love to see from other artists.

None of that is a promise, though. That's just things that my mind thinks possible right now. What is a promise, is that I am sincerely sorry for disappearing. That I'm sincerely sorry for abandoning both my art, my profiles and the people attached to them. And that I know that nothing can excuse this. I know it's not the literal end of the world, but I still deeply regret taking as long as I did and not doing what I didn't do. I don't know how much this means at this point anymore, but it's important to me, and as long as one person reads this and gets some kind of emotional response out of it, this journal fulfilled its purpose.


That is all.
The Life of Redswift (6/6) by ManFox
The Life of Redswift (6/6)
Picture 6 out of 6 of a commission series for   sini

The final piece of a commission series that took me an inexcusably long amount of time to complete. It's   sini rocking out at the concert of... an odd little band that nobody probably ever heard of. How strange!

This commission series took me an insane amount of time to complete. I went through a heavy depression, got cured, fell back again, and I'm still looking for a job. None of these things excuse how long I took to complete this, and I want to offer my most sincere apologies to   sini for taking so long to finish what should've been a simple task.
This will be the last "big" commission from me for a while. After such a stunt, not only am I afraid to show my face in any professional manner, but also I wouldl ike to use this time to catch up on all the little private pictures and practice ideas I didn't go through with. I will probably not stop posting art, hell, I might start posting a lot more than I did in the past couple years! I just won't accept any new big commissions for a while. Small sketches, things I know I can finish in a day, perhaps. sure. But no more full commission pictures like this one for a while. I apologize not only to   sini, but also to anyone else whom I might have disappointed with my behaviour, or whom I am disappointing with my decision right now.



Tools: Adobe Photoshop CS5; Wacom Bamboo Pen&Touch

Hey, it's been another long time since we've spoken. I've been in a rut artistically and mentally lately, but I think I'm ready to come back :)

Oh hey! Yeah, it's been a while. I've been kind of vanishing from the Internet for about a year-ish, sorting out some stuff in my private life. Haven't been doing too good artistically, either, but I'm starting to get back into things, so hopefully we'll both manage to get back on our feet! :3

I plan to! I'm already working hard to get back into a proper drawing habit, even moreso than before, and already trying my hands at some new topics altogether, like Texturing and soon possibly 3D modeling. :3
Hope you'll be able to get back into a nice groove as well, who knows, we might be able to do a collab sometime!

Heyyyyy, it's been so long! XD I feel like an arse to never keep up with anyone on here. After all, this was the site where I made some of my longest-lasting friends. Anyway, school has taken over my life and has not allowed me to unclench my fists lol. How about you?

I'm doing alright, thanks for asking. Trying to get my groove back so I can finally start drawing again. Not as easy as I'd hoped, but I'll work it out eventually! Glad to hear you're doing alright finally, though!

XD Ahh art, how I've neglected thee! (Well, I've been knitting, so that's kind of art, I guess.) But yeah, I'm doing well now, I wish things were well for 2/2 people haha. It's getting chilly here, but I suppose my North American weather has nothing on yours lol.
