Art Zone

Here's where I'm putting whatever art I come up with now. At times a bit rough. Beware of really ancient art. I am more of a programmer than an artist, but I do still try. I'll put dates if I can find them. Each page here has many images on it, possibly a few MB worth, so while that might sound laughable to modern high-speed cases, I'm still warning in advance in case there's some limits. Also, avoid hotlinking (that thing where someone embeds an image hosted from another site), but feel free to save things if for some reason you want to. Try not to put my art anywhere else without credit.

Questions

What do you draw?
A variety of subjects, generally whatever I feel like drawing. A lot of my art features Pokémon, because they have varied yet cartoonish enough designs that I could practice with, plus I enjoy the monster designs in general. At times I even draw my own characters that I've come up with through whatever means. I'm very unlikely to draw anything explicit in terms of violence or erotica, but there may be odd things throughout.

Aren't you a programmer?
Primarily, yes. But I like to draw for fun. Plus if I'm making games and need art right away, it's gotta come from somewhere. I'm aiming at least a bit better than "programmer art" to the best of my ability.

What's your main style?
I'm constantly experimenting and evolving whatever my style is at the moment. I might be going between pixel to drawn and maybe even ASCII at times.

What is "Fart Skool"?
Fart Skool has been a mostly-weekly-ish art jam held at the ArtsyFartsy Twitch channel encouraging an odd variety of themes and open to whoever wants to participate, regardless of skill. I see it as a good and fun skill-building opportunity on several levels.

Where is 2011 art?
I didn't find anything from that year that I drew or was willing to post here. I think it was a busy college year.

Why not post these on Twitter/Tumblr/DeviantArt/other image gallery website?
It depends. Fart Skool assignments will show up in the stream at least before I post them here. If I'm active on another site, I may post the picture there too. But on this site I have control over the compression and format so I can have the full-quality images here if I want. Plus I got tired of having to deal with all the rapid-fire and not-fully-thought-out changes some sites do. Several items here were posted to other sites prior to me deciding to drop those later on, particularly the older stuff.

What about written art (poems, short stories, etc.)?
I'll put that in another section if I end up doing that, but I'm probably more likely to write code than write stories currently (aside from the story in the game).
