I'm a University of Nevada, Reno art student weirdo and I draw nudist cartoons and stuff. Most of my art is not meant to be erotic but to celebrate the human form. Also I'm writing a novel.

My typical medium is traditional pen and ink (on paper) and digital paint with a Wacom tablet (in Photoshop).
Interests
I know, I've been terrible. THREE uploads this year and we're two weeks away from July? Ugh. UGH. Thankfully, a recent change has rekindled my love of making art. See, for the past three or so years I've been using a super old (like, 2008 old!), crappy desktop I got cheap off eBay with Photoshop CS5 pre-installed. Not only was it super slow but it was running the 32-bit version of Windows 7, and at the time I had bought it I didn't realize that meant it can only accept a maximum of 4GB RAM. It's been a terrible machine for making digital art, only able to just barely scrape by for me. It's not the only reason I've been in an artist rut this year, but it's definitely been a big contributor. If most of your art is done digitally and it's a pain in the ass to boot up your computer and you have to deal with things like brush lag, it tends to wear on you and take the fun out of making art.

But I finally bought a new desktop perfectly specc'd out for my needs, and now I'm on Photoshop CC 2017. Here's the difference between the old jalopy I was working on vs. the sleek new workhorse I have now: 

Old Computer:
Ancient Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB RAM. Can only have one hard drive so I had to use an external drive as a scratch disk. 

New Computer: 6th Gen Core i5 with 16GB RAM. Two SSD drives, so now I have a dedicated scratch disk installed in the computer. 

The difference is night and day, and it's really made a difference. My workflow is as smooth as butter now, and due to a few other personal things I won't get into right now, I'm definitely BACK with with newfound motivation and passion! My goal is to have a new upload at least once a week from here on out. I already have THREE other works in progress (I don't know how to pluralize WIP, so fine, I'll just not use the acronym), so the second half of 2017 is off to a good start for me. WOO! Let's do this!
