      What creative projects have I been working on? It’s almost a labor to answer that one concisely, hence my lack of participation.

      My mind is of never ending creative ideas, some great and some not, most not.. but they don’t ever seem to stop. I also like to be creative, and as a result, have ended up with more “started” projects then I’m willing to count.

      So my question to fellow traverses of the tilde-verse is, what are some methods you use to sustain productivity in individual projects when creativity itself inspires starting new projects?

      Whether digital or physical, what certain tools do you use and what unique ways do you use them to achieve the best results? Namely, what tips would you be able to share with someone looking to get into making art somewhat similar to yours?

      Examples:
      oil painting - Are expensive brands of paints worth it? Do you prime your painting surface? Why/why not?
      digital painting - Are their tricks to the way you can use some photoshop tools? What bumps your game up from beginner to mid-level?
      photography - what can/can't be accomplished in Lightroom? What's worth investing in? And how do you make a photoshop selection to cut out a person or animal with fuzzy or whispy hair?
      crafters of all mediums - what adhesives are good? What's the best place for materials?

      This is obviously an open-ended conversation as tilde's user base is still growing. What type of art do you do and what personal tips can you share?
