Hello everyone. Sorry I haven’t been around in a while. I have been dealing with a few issues in life that has kept me away from doing anything art related.
My depression that I have been dealing with is a bit annoying. Or actually I think I should just call it the Winter Blues. Depression is probably something that should be reserved for people who have been diagnosed with depression. I happen to actually go through a phase that keeps me in the pits and it usually happens during a time when the sun shines a little less during the year. I’m not really sure what to say it is but this is what usually happens to me.
I have my theories as how to get out of my Winter Blues that I go through. Usually I go out for a walk or go to the gym, in general, just do something active to get my juices flowing. That is one way. Another way is I go and do something creative that is outside my norm that I usually do. And another way is just to go out and have fun with other people who are like me and that means it’s almost time for Convention Season. Yeah they’re starting up so I better keep my eyes peeled for my local cons in the area.
But lately I have also been going through another dilemma about my life. Pain! A bit of it really. I guess it’s a sign of getting old. For me it’s oral pain as of late. I hate going to the dentist and this time it’s nothing but the same thing and since this time I sort of do have the money it’s was time to get things taken care of. So I am almost 40 years old and I finally had my wisdom teeth pulled. Yeah it was time so I went through doing that. In my case I had to see a specialist to get the job done. I actually had an extra set on my upper jaw that had to be removed. So six wisdom teeth in total taken out and one molar had to be taken out because it rotted through. Seven teeth in total were pulled out. Now I am sitting here in pain and doped up on some pain meds to help me through all this. Yay, fun times!
Well just letting you all know that I haven’t forgotten about the website and my drawing. I am trying to get through all this crap and when I am feeling better I will get something done and I hope it will be soon. Till then I will see you all later and hopefully with some new art to show off. =)
Programs and Mediums Used:
See, I have been doing some drawing. I have posed these two drawings at the same time because I was having technical Difficulties. Apparently my scanner decided to take a poop and stopped working properly. So after spending $100 on a new scanner I am now able to scan in images again and I can post up new pictures. So here is one of Linda standing. Yes, not much to say about this picture. Just a simple sketch so it’s in the Sketchbook with this one. I hope you enjoy. =)

Well, it’s been a while since I have done a drawing. and it’s been a while longer since I have posted two. I had some technical difficulties over the past few weeks. My scanner decided to take a poop and sort of stopped functioning properly. So with that said I had to go out and buy a new scanner. So now that I have a new one and I am $100 in the hole, I am able to scan in new pictures. So here is a girl headshot that I have stuck into the Sketchbook. Just a simple sketch, nothing more. I hope that you enjoy this picture. =)

So I have noticed that this is my first posting in 2015 and what do I post? A motivational phrase of something that I should be doing other than playing games and waste time like I have been doing the past few months. So here is my phrase that I am telling myself… “I Should Be Drawing!” I have printed this up and it is now hanging over my drawing desk and staring me in the face when I come into the room. The next time I come in and I am looking to play a game on my computer, I will be thinking twice about that, at least I hope. =D
The picture you see here was done in Photoshop using a few random images that I have drawn up in the past. I mainly stuck to my CG artwork for the images you see here since this is a CG picture. I felt that it was best. Here is a link to a larger version of the images in case you like to get a better look at it. Anyway I had better get back now and get going on some drawing! =)
So not much to report here on Jimmy’s World. I just made a few site improvements.
First improvement: I disabled comments to the website. They were just not working for me and so I decided to completely get rid of them.
Second Improvement: I added a pre-loader to the top navigation to the site. I have noticed in the past that my navigation didn’t load properly when you enter the site. Well now it does. I just hope it is rendering well enough on your browser. It’s looking good on mine so I hope it works.
And finally but not really an update but something to note. For the past couple of weeks I was thinking it through in my small brain again about redoing my website. Well in the end I decided not to because I feel that this version is pretty perfect. I think I have decided that this version is the one that will stay. I played around with different designs and I even thought of getting rid of the WordPress thing all together. But in the end, I decided not to. The site is staying the way it is with the few edits that I have done.
Now it is off to work on some bigger and better things I hope. =)
