You exist?? Who, I thought I was just seeing things again... o.o Great to have you here! I really enjoy the DA forums, and I'm sure you will to. There are quite a few trolls here, though. If you want to learn how to use the site's block feature, just read this: [link] I hope that helps.
I'm doing fine. But really there isn't anything to be jealous of. I'm such a slowpoke; just to do the linearts takes me four hours and I don't even want to talk about the coloring . Why don't you try digital art? It's way easier than you may think!
Digital art may seem easy to those with tablets and equipment to make it, not to mention years of refining their technique. I don't seem to have time or motivation anyway. I use my laptop's touchpad, and dA Muro and MS Paint to draw with, when I fell like being artisic. I actually find traditional to be easier.
