A Return to deviantART?

Man, it's been ages since I last updated this journal. I've been pretty inactive here on dA, but my dear wife little-owlette seems to have tricked me into getting to be more active here again. It's been years since I properly delved into this site, though, and I do notice dAmn is near-empty - which is actually quite disappointing. I've been looking for some more active, involved groups around here though, so if you have any in mind, do let me know! :) 

On the artistic front, I've been improving quite a bit over the past years, focusing mainly on painting from scratch, working with texture, and really pushing myself into new area's. I've been having a ton of fun with this, and it's also renewed my appreciation for the artwork of other artists. If you're interested in finding out what I've been drawing, you can find quite some of my work in Elements The Game! Now, without further ado;

Jan Mennenga
Artist | Digital Art
United States
I am Jan Mennenga, concept artist and illustrator hailing from The Netherlands.

Since 2003, I have been diving into the world of digital art. Though my personal preference lies with painting, I have learned to be as versatile as possible; from photomanipulation to vector work, I've tried to learn as much as I could - it really is one of my greatest passions. It is, in fact, a passion through which I found another one -Pepokish and I met through our art on this website, and as of May 16th, we're husband and wife.

On deviantART, you'll usually find me in #DigitalMedia, #ArtistTree or #Thumbsshare. Outside of deviantART, you can also find me on websites such as One reason I spend time meeting other artists, is because I love watching (and helping) artists grow. It is because of that that you'll often see me pick apart a piece entirely while writing critiques; something I much enjoy doing as a token of appreciation for an artist's work.

If you can't handle critique, don't ask for it, because you will not like me.

We're doing great!  I was just going through my watchlist and accidentally unwatched you, so yeaahhh, uh, sorry. Slow 

Anyway; how are you? :D

:giggle: No worries.

I'm glad you guys are doing well - that's always awesome to hear. I'm just plodding along, still a bit of a workaholic and perfectionist. I'm working lots, studying lots, not so much time now for the creative stuff but I try to get it in where I can. Don't be a stranger! :glomp:
