Just a quick thought I wanted to share with people:
This new "painting" style of mine - I am not sure it is too good. I mean, painting is amazing, but I just don't think I have the artistic ability to do it successfully.
Looking back, my older drawings before I started this were a lot neater, and had much more vivid and bright colours. I also noticed that my recent experimental drawings/paintings/whatever haven't really been that popular as my drawings usually are. And to be honest, I can see why. For instance, my Roromiya Karuta drawing I really think is a complete mess, and I'm not really that happy about it. In my opinion there has been a great drop in art quality since I've started trying it.
To be honest, I think lineart is easier, and in some ways I prefer it. Perhaps I may "paint" in the future again, but for now I know that I am really not ready and artistically mature enough yet for it (with the exception of backgrounds, perhaps). As an interesting observation, I can see that the majority of artists tend to use lineart, and those who don't are pretty damn good on average.
Of course, I've learned from this experience to use more vivid and bright colours!
Anyway, not sure if anybody even cares about this, but I thought I'd let people know.
