A Little Update...

I think in the coming weeks I am going to finally overhaul my blog like I mentioned a while ago. I definitely probably transition my blog from Blogspot to Wordpress.

I also will be posting more random drawings and images that I have been messing around with. I really need to get back to blogging the content the way I used to when I first started this blog. Well that's all I have for you guys this week. Just a little update.

Until next week...

A Couple of Images...

Well, as you can see faithful few I have been quite productive by my standards this week.

The pencil sketch is a study for the Darth Maul that I started in the other image. The digital image I've started in an app called Infinite Painter on my Samsung Note 3. So far I've worked on it for a little over 4 hours. I'm going to work on it some more on my phone and then probably import it into Photoshop to finish it off. And as usual, I will definitely share with you guys. That's all I have for you guys this week.

Until next week...

The Weeks' Ahead...

In the coming weeks, I plan on trying to get as much writing and art done as I possibly can. I have so many ideas and thoughts locked away in my head that just seems to be going to waste.

I have so many sketches and rough drafts in various stages of completion that I need to make sure that I get them done. There is no excuse for my procrastination. I've been trying to make sure that I stay motivated and focused. I'm going to get back to working in my sketchbook everyday. I occasionally do doodles and sketches at work that I've put in my sketchbook but I don't carry my sketchbook as often as I used to do. That's going to change. Well that's it for this weekend. Not too much going on as of yet.

 Until next week...

New...the need to be loved and "Scoping"

So. Have you guys tried this new social site linked to Twitter? It's called Periscope. It's a pretty good social tool. It allows you to connect to others all round the world via a streaming video broadcast. I have done a few myself. (Every time I do one though, I feel like such a noob!) 

I've been finding out more and more about this site the last couple of days. One thing Periscope allows you to do is give the broadcasters ❤️. The hearts is like the same system of favoriting a tweet or "liking" a post on Facebook except that I just found out the more hearts you get the higher you rate and get featured on the front page. 

To me so far, the biggest draw is the voyeuristic nature of Periscope. You can hope around all over the world and view people's "Scopes" as they call them. It's that almost immediate connection with a total stranger which draws you in. You can also interact with the broadcasters. A lot of people also grow their list of followers by scoping everyday and often. People hold church, webinars, tutorials and they even livestream performances and shows. 

I think you guys should check it out. But be  wary, it can be quite addictive. If you follow me on Twitter, you can get notified when I do a Scope @ArtstarV9 is my Twitter handle. See you there. 

That's all for this week. Until next time...
