Self-Centered by AlexRuizArt Self-Centered by AlexRuizArt
I think there's a fine line between being too independent, and being self-centered.
In one way, you have to be alone much of the time to create, say a piece of art. But that may lead to cutting yourself off from everything else.....ahh, such the predicament!

Ok, I'm off to get fresh air:)

This was done in photoshop and painter in about two days.

Now, get back to creating, but don't get self centered!!:D

Love the piece and the thought behind it, because it's so 'painfully' true.

(Just one unrelated question if your answering comments)
How hard is it to pic up digital art with the programs and the tablets? And what brand of tablet do you recommend? IS Waccom any good?
