Well, I have been watching dA but not contributing lately. This is not to say that I haven't been working on drawings - I have been creating myself a website on Word Press (tinycat-adventures dot com). Check it out. It has cats.
Anyway, mostly I have been using the time working towards my level 2 epee coaching exam. I have been a coach for about six years, but only level 1. It seems oddly difficult to get the necessary training at the necessary level into a standard week, so now I find myself fencing four nights a week and looking for a fifth club within an hour's drive. Hopefully this will only be until November, as it's all voluntary and will cost a bit in fuel. Then I can get back to proper evening entertainment, such as sketching.
I still haven't finished AssCreed III, either - I just couldn't get into it. Perhaps it's just not an era in world history that holds any great excitement for a Brit. Mostly, though, I think that there was a distinct lack of stabbing. It didn't hold a great deal of beauty. Running around on the rooftops didn't flow. Collecting things is good for me, but not clunky trade management - I have many of that kind of game, and I don't need another one.
I may give it another go when I have time, after the real stabbing has been completed.
