Hi Everyone! Sorry I've been so quiet for what seems like the whole of 2016. I didn't really mean for it to be this way but that's how it turned out. I haven't stopped making artwork or anything, it's just that 2016 seemed to be a year of big projects. What I've learned is that when I do a big project I get bogged down and start to go slow. Because of that 2016 wasn't really a great year for me and I'm planning on making 2017 better. But first I still need to finish this big project. Here's a sneak-peek. It's Killing me right now but Hopefully when I look back on it in a year I'll be very happy with it. It's also going to be the last big picture I do for a few years.... Unless they become incredibly profitable which I don't see happening.
There's five more on my website, click here to visit it.
So what about 2017? I plan on doing lots more little projects. I want to start getting a good drawing done every day or two, I would still like to keep doing commissions but I want to start doing lots more of my own artwork too. I'll be trying to focus my commissions on doing small things. I kind of want to do more comics and animations but I think from now on they will be personal projects because they are much easier and quicker to do when I do them for myself and if I don't like doing them I can bin then without worrying about making a client angry. I'll also be looking at ways to fund that. I'll be doing something with my patreon
even if it's just putting my full sized artworks on there (personal projects, full size commissions are only available to the commissioner. I'm keeping full sized artwork off of deviant art because they claim a lot of usage rights to anything on here as part of their TOS) For the people who hate patreon I might look at other funding methods but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
To cut a long ramble short this year I want to make more stuff, and I want more of it to be my own stuff which I think will be more imaginative and fun.
We'll see what happens eh?
Happy New Year Everyone!
