Oh, that's horrible to hear, Nasty. I really hope that you can sort everything out ASAP and get back to having fun. :( I hope you didn't lose any WIPs...
Haha! And learn from my mistakes? Of course not!Now would probably be a good time to back everything up.
Yes I know I am a bad painter with rigid colors haha, painting in itself is so far out of my comfort zone it is unrealGlad to hear your computer problems are remedied C:!!
About painting- I have a small suggestion to you. Perhaps you could try breaking out of your comfort zone with your colors? Your paintings resemble your lined works in a sort of way, in that they are just very very precise and your color choices are kind of specifically ummm rigid (???) It's a really great illustrated appeal in your lined works, but I dunno if it's as effective with painting. Try playing around with new hues, and don't be afraid to get messy with your strokes. Also give a shot to using several hues to portray a color instead of just one.
For me, I find that the appeal to painting is just being able to throw a bunch of shit down and carve something out of it, instead of meticulously maintaining pixel by pixel lines sometimes.
And I'm not saying THIS IS THE WAY TO PAINT or anything,plz far from it, but I think it would be a fun experiment for you to try. c:
Here are some videos from a guy who is basically the embodiment of messy gritty vibrant painting and is exactly who I picture when I was typing all that stuff http://vimeo.com/user441775/videos
Good luck with your painting adventures ccc:!!!
