My friends convinced me to post of FurAffinity, and at first I resisted because I am kind of slow when it comes to computer stuff, and was kind of intimidated by the notion of sharing art on a public forum. I would come to enjoy the back and forth with other artists. I would try posting on other art sites but many of them failed, or their interface was overly complicated, but I am not shy of trying out other venues, and I love seeing art from people all over the world.
For a long long time I had always wanted to do an on-going comic series, but never could find a story that I wouldn't end up losing interest in, and Anime Guy and Dino Buddy (my on-going comic) happened kind of by mistake. I used to try to do that Nanowrimo thing (the write a novel in a month thing), I just really like writing, always have. I think I succeeding doing the required 10k words twice. I know I made it at least once, and Anime Guy and Dino Buddy is actually a mish-mash of all of the better parts of the stories I attempted to write for NanoWriMo. The first Anime Guy and Dino Buddy comic was meant to be a one time deal and a deliberately terrible joke. I liked the characters, though, and did another stinker comic, and decided I needed to keep these two around, and that's the true origin story of Anime Guy and Dino Buddy also known and Ed and Heath
It's only been in the last four or so years that I finally wanted to expand my artistic horizons. I have really very little formal training in art. I picked it up around age four because I was just doing what my big brother did, as is required of all younger siblings. He drew, so I wanted to draw too, although the subject matter was vastly different. He liked drawing the Bionic man's arm. My mom said he must have drawn it hundreds of times, but I also remember my brother taking art very seriously, trying to learn how to draw from books, but I used art as a replacement for toys. Oddly I had little interest in actual toys, but created my own creatures and drew stories on paper with them. My mom luckily saved some of these "story drawings" of mine. It still cracked me up after all these years, as when I was finished with my story I would draw a sign (like a wooden sign) stuck in the ground with the words "The End" on it.
I have been buying books with reference pictures in them to get better at drawing architectural, mechanical and other non cartoon animal related subjects. I originally set out to buy a book with pictures of modern regular cars, but not finding one I ended up drawing a lot of classic cars, especially Mercedes Benz, which (on account of studying them so much) is my favorite classic car. I am still not very good at it yet. I think every artist should never ever become complacent with their current skills, and they should each strive to do better.
