Hi all. Many members are still experiencing trouble uploading images. This is some weird memory problem on the website. Nothing is wrong with your computer! I have some vacation coming up in July when I will work on fixing it.

Welcome to PaperDemon! Leeonnista actually isn't as active with the site these days and she's moved on to other things.
Let me know if you need help with anything.
Topic: hello I'm new
I like your username. Welcome to PaperDemon! I like your MLP artwork. I'm a fan of the show as well.
How did you find out about PaperDemon? Let me know what you think of it. I'm always open to ideas for improving it. Thanks so much for introducing yourself and I'll see you around!
Any one out there that have started a family that have trouble finding time for art projects? I'm planning on starting my family later this year and just wonder if this is hard to do. Or maybe do you involve your kids in your art projects (obviously when they're older)? It seems like many parents aren't able to have time for hobbies anymore so thought I'd ask some fellow creative folks out there.
Topic: Where do you go to learn?
Where do you go to learn about fiction writing? or drawing techniques? or drawing/painting software and hardware?
Do you pay for any of these resources? Such as for instructional videos or online classes?
Just curious where folks go to get art and writing related education resources and if it's ever worth paying money for. I've personally used Lynda.com and search quite a bit on YouTube when I want to know something specific. The other day I learned how to do green screening in Adobe After Effects on YouTube.
Topic: The Hobbit
I haven't watched the parody you linked to yet but it's in my watch later queue. I'll definitely check it out.
I enjoyed the movie but was surprised when it wasn't resolved. The original book was 1 book so I was not expecting the movie to be a trilogy. I remember reading the book when I was a kid. I don't remember much of the details but there's one scene in particular I remember because I did an art project of it:
I'm sorry that you feel this way about sharing art. It's going to be hard on someone if they see it as a popularity contest because there's always going to be someone else out there that's better than us at it. So try not to beat yourself up about it.
It is really nice to feel like a part of a community of like-minded people. But it's also a lot of work to keep up with it all. In order to get more followers, you have to be active with other people too. It's a lot of work for sure. So I understand the want to disconnect for a while.
But don't put it out of your life forever. There will always be a place for you at PaperDemon and anywhere else on the internet when you decide to come back and share again.
Actually, your post inspired me. I haven't posted very much art for the past few years. So I feel inspired to share more.
Will you at least stick around to share in discussions in the forums? I hope so. It's always nice to have more creative people to chat with. Most people seem to be lurking these days.
Hello Katicalocke. Welcome to PaperDemon!
Our forums have been pretty quiet lately. I guess everyone is lurking these days. But if we get a few peeps in here we can liven it up real fast.
I'm glad you like the layout of PD and the separate adults section. That's one of the special things about us and I'm really glad circumstances have allowed us to allow adult content. Not a lot of sites do that because of various reasons.
Good luck with your self-publishing. I hear you can make a lot more per item sold than if you went through traditional means, but it can mean more work for you to market it. I love that we're living in the internet age where we can cut out the expensive middle man. It truly gives every creative person the chance to make something of themselves without being part of a select elite group.
Just to clarify, doing background art does not require flash. But it does require Photoshop.
Let me know if you have any questions. Please email me your portfolio if you're interested. firstname.lastname@example.org
