Lots Of Things... by Zenoc2
Lots Of Things...
Bill is watching you...

Guess who's back? :D  My friend :iconshaidz: Shaidz got me back into dA, and seeing his work convinced me that vector drawings are just the right way to do high-res cartoon-style pieces.  Bill is a fun character to draw, and relatively easy - most of the time, he's nice and symmetrical.

The text in the middle was time-consuming, largely because I had some trouble finding a free alternative to York Handwriting (apparently always the top result for "tall narrow handwriting font").  I finally settled on a font called A Day Without Sun, which you can find here (free for personal non-commercial use).  Adding in all of those variants of "HA", "Ha", "hA", and "ha" took some time, too. =P

This entire piece was created in Inkscape, and exported at 1440x900 (for any of you nuts like me who are still using a 16:10 monitor with a top resolution that low :P ).
I've emptied my dA inbox!  That hasn't happened in at least a year! :XD: I blame one of my hallmates for getting me back onto this site.
dA status update, woot! Love the mobile app. Even though there are a few bugs still.

I'm a daydreamer, I'm a nerd, and I'm a Christian. I like experimenting with different programs and mediums to create unique works of art. I write to share the stories in my head, draw to show how my imagination pictures them, and take pictures to show off the setting of my Savior's ongoing story. Going outside is good for that too, though. ;P

Hey!  I'm not dead, and all that stuff people usually say when they suddenly reappear on dA! :dance:

A lot of things have changed since I last posted here.  A very, very happy chapter of my life is over now.  I won't go into the details of how or why here.  There's been a lot of grief, and plenty of guilt, that's come with that ending, though.  But, life moves on, whether I want it to or not.  I can only count that as a blessing.

For the actual point of the post, though:  I originally wrote this on my Facebook page, then decided it was too long and too candid for someone to see just glancing through their news feed.  I've pretty much made this page my blog in the past, though, so I figured it'd be much more fitting to put it here. :P  Here's what I wrote:
Alright, I've finally caved and given up an old childhood prejudice.
It used to be that when I wrote about myself, I would talk about events and cool things
I'd learned or discovered.  I'd occasionally touch on emotions, but I made sure that they weren't the focus of my writing.  My writings were my "Journal".  They were NOT a diary.  Diaries, I believed, were for girls, and guys a little too in-touch with their feminine side.
 That belief changed tonight, with this discovery: When you're at you're lowest, writing down your feelings in a place that no one else will read, and that you'll probably never want to return to, really, really helps. Having to express exactly what you're feeling helps you figure out just what it is you're feeling.  It makes you confront the way you're thinking about things, and either accept it, or change it.  And when God breaks in in the middle of your writing, you tend to end up with a surprisingly different perspective on things. :)
So my old prejudice -- that keeping a diary is for girls and sissies -- is gone.  
My diary will never show up here, but hey: it inspired me to write something here again, even if it is just my 1 AM ramblings.
