Hi there, most people call me by my alias, Zeal; you should too! I'm a self-taught artist who strives for realism with anthropomorphic (anthro) cartoons traditionally and digitally. I usually keep to myself and I'm a very friendly guy under my serious face; I can be helpful if you ask nicely. I don't like arguing, least of all fighting. If you have questions for me, don't hesitate to ask! I don't bite... as often (just kidding).
Stick around and if you like, check out my gallery!

I figured it was an appropriate song for this journal, since its sorta what I'm doing. I was thinking about myself while I was dreaming in my nap, its something that been happening more often now but hasn't really bothered me too much. In fact, I like experiencing myself through the eyes of my characters and letting my imagination take root.
Anyway, I was thinking about my digital drawing. I know I have a hard time making clean line art and painting in the traditional method digitally and it's been bothering me for a long time. I think it's because I'm trying too hard and I'm relying on my perfectionism. I feel like those are the reasons I haven't been able to draw and paint naturally in the digital sense. I have tried it in the past but it required a lot of determination and focus, so much that I could only maintain the technique for a short time before my self-confidence and motivation ran out. I would then revert to using the pen tool on Photoshop, it's not efficient and the process to make line art is time consuming, tedious and painful on my back and neck from bending over the tablet for long periods. Because of those problems it's probably why I try to avoid drawing digitally in the first place.
I've long since been wanting to do collaborations with friends as a temporary solution to my deteriorating health (back and neck pains) but, I have put it off because I've been afraid to ask for help and believed I could do it on my own without support from other people. Heh, look at where my stubbornness has gotten me. I've literally held myself back a few years! I know how to draw and paint traditionally but when I try to apply those skills digitally, I run into a road block and I just can't pass it; I'm stuck guys and I don't know what to do... I need your help!

If you went camping with some friends somewhere remote and your vehicle broke down, could you survive with what you brought for 72 hours before help came?
4 deviants saidYes, we could survive; even if our supplies ran out!
3 deviants saidMaybe... if everyone was cool headed.
