Thought I'd share some of my stuff with you folks.

This is all work i've done over the last year and a half or so. The last pic is one I doodled with my Galaxy Note 3 2014 edition. As far as what progrems I use I've used Sketchbook Pro over the last few years but I recently upgraded to Manga Studio 5. If anyone has any tips as far as MS goes I'd appreciate the input.
I stopped drawing from '93 until I got back into art in early 2013 and i think I've come a long way over the last few years. i'm open to critique ^_^ and suggestions as I love to learn new things. Thanks for checking out my art and if you're interested in what I do you can watch me here http://www.furaffinity.net/user/zidders/

though I'm most active on FA.
I also write poems and stories. Again thanks for checking out my stuff.
"Tell us what your goals as an artist are."
I mostly create art to please myself, my partners and a close friend. That being said I like making people smile and believe in themselves. I also love creating mature art because I love that sort of thing. For the most part I just want to get better and if I happen to make people smile and make some money from it, awesome. I'm not really into getting rich or anything. I just want to have fun.
"Are you a hobbyist looking to learn to draw landscapes for fun?:
"Are you putting together a portfolio to get into art school?"
I went to CCRI back in '93 but while I got an A+ in Children's lit. college wasn't for me. I've always had difficulty in school (I was in special ed. classes throughout most of grade school and have a hard time learning things) and ended up losing my Pell grant :/
"Are you currently a professional looking to further refine your skills in a certain area?"
I don't have the fortitude or ability to focus that being a professional in anything requires.
"How long have you been practicing this form of art?"
I've been drawing since I was a kid but I've only been learning how to be better at it for a few years.
"Who are some artists or styles that you admire who you strive to be like in your own work?"
There are a number of 'furry' artists I admire like Blotch, SabreToothErmine, and DarkNatascha but I also love traditional fantasy artists like Larry Elmore and Keith Parkinson. I'm also a huge fan of Berke Breathed and Bill Waterson (Bloom County/Ouland/Opus, Calvin & Hobbes). I love comic art (Dave Sim and Gerhard's work on Cerebus), Steve Gallacci (Albedo), Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo) and Eastman & Laird are huge influences on me as well. I'm also big into children's book artists like Dr. Suess and Trina Schart Hyman. [/spoiler/
