To do list:
-Buy new tablet, since my 5 year old Graphire 4 died on Valentine's Day. Using markers has been very awesome, but I'm woefully out of practice, and have too much work riding on the digital end right now.
-Invest in a new laptop, since this 2 year old machine keeps flickering and overheats at the mere breath of a video/youtube clip/DVD playback.
-Invest seriously in a desktop so I don't have to rely exclusively on a laptop to do work, at home, at the day job or otherwise.
-Get a full-time, ramen and PB&J fueled art job, even if it's just freelancing and commissioning. Answering phones for crazy people in Middle America who are scared of the Middle East isn't fun. Ever. Also, not getting paid on time SUCKS.
-Quit getting so bent out of shape when finished work doesn't fall instantly from the pencil. That takes days to do, man!
-Draw more mechanical shapes and objects. The itch is a full blown rash now.
-Draw from life. Draw from more reference images.
-Shade frequently, and with intensity. Colors are fine, it's depth and form that needs work.
