It's been a long time since I uploaded regularly.
I broke my tablet and have only been able to do art through my moms ipad and with a mouse. That's why I haven't done much art or anything in late 2012 or all of 2013. It's been a year and a half since I did digital art regularly, but I'm getting a new tablet later this morning, and a lot of things are moving forward.
As the title may tell you, in my time away from Deviant Art the past 15 or so months I wrote two books. And started at least sixteen. I cried a lot. I binged on red bull and ravioli and sour candies. I'm proud of myself. Both of the books are bad. One is sci-fi, the other is paranormal romance. I'll never publish either of them, but writing them has helped me deal with a lot of issues and improve my writing. I'll always love digital art, but writing is my true love, and what I plan to make a career of. As of now I'm working on my third novel, which is an Urban Fantasy, and then I have a planned contemporary and some more Paranormal romance.
But I also plan to do a lot of art now. With my new tablet I'm back in business. I've been trolling mostly on Tumblr, Wattpad and Youtube in my absence from DA, and I learned a lot. I became a feminist and social justice warrior, (which basically means I'm not a racist, sexist douche.) and I gained a lot of maturity and self-confidence. I still have insecurities but they are much less than they were before, and I'm getting better with loving myself every day. I also dyed my hair from it's natural black to a brown that doesn't show up well on camera.
So in the near future I plan to upload a lot of fanart of novels I've been reading like Fangirl and Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, and some Holly Black stuff. I also want to draw my own characters and upload snippets of my writing. You can see some of my poetry on my tumblr, too. It's kylebrittain.tumblr.com so check that out.
I'll post some more later, and maybe some art. But for now, HELLO, and I'm glad to be back!
