Hello everyone. I hope you're all doing alright.

First of all, sorry if anyone is waiting for any work and anything that is not ready yet, I haven't completely forgotten. But I do want to take a moment to address something.

I think I need to be honest with you all about something. As of late, things have not been going to well for me. I've been drained of inspiration and been having a lot on my mind getting worked up with a lot of things, mostly with my dad. For those of you who don't know, he has been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease a couple of years ago (something I should have picked up on with his shaking hand) and despite all of us keeping up hopes, he has still been working himself a lot more than he should be doing, and as of late he has had to start relying on needing a walking stick since he has tripped a few times over his own feet. He will also need to have an automatic vehicle since changing gears in a car is getting difficult for him and he has been getting more and more tired with his medication he has been taking. While it is helping his steadiness, some sort of paranoia that has been following me around has been with all the newspapers I keep seeing pushing for awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. I am trying not to let that bother me since despite his slower responses due to his medicine but still, I keep getting a feeling that something else maybe happening. I just hope it's all in my own mind.

This and my other predicament has been making me feel like I should have addressed this for a long time. For those of you who have followed me from the beginning, I have been more or less renowned for one thing. Expansion Art. For those who don't know what it is (meaning you either manage to ignore that which I don't blame you for) it’s basically when you expand a character either in a weight gain or inflatable matter. Work that can be seen here;

And I have been going at this for nearly 10 years starting off from drawing silly pics with the first watchers to commissions I have made today. I know that to a lot of people this is a weird and otherwise digesting art form and it is understandable that it would be seen this way since it is a fetish style of art. Though if it had not been for this bizarre art form, I wouldn't have had the style I had today since going through a progression of characters starting off as big, then practicing them going from small shapes to bigger ones like in inflation or gaining weight helped to teach me how to learn my style for anatomy and expressions. So, at least turning it into an outward energy means it can't be too bad, right? ^^;

However, as of late, I have really lost the flow of it all and am really considering wanting to move away from it unless as commissions or as something that I really want to draw for a random piece. As of late, I have wanted to begin trying out other material and actually try different styles out along the way. As of late, I want to branch off and attempt newer things. Things other than the usual fetishy junk I mean. >>

I really want to start possibly focusing on work more like these with more professional poses, art styles and other types of work with more detailed work going into things and attempt to push myself more with being able to see what I am capable of producing. While I am working on commissions, I would like to hear your views of what do you think I could try doing?

What would YOU like me to try working on?
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: Youtube Vids.
  • Reading: My journal?
  • Watching: ... again, my journal?

Answer honestly, who between them in this pic is prettier? duragan.deviantart.com/art/Que…
