I know its been pretty much radio silence from me around these parts lately. The last few months haven't been easy- and in fact they've been some of the hardest of my life. But I'm pleased to say things are rolling again in the art realm of things. I do apologize for the wait on commissions and as I get to them, I will be writing each of you who've already paid for art from me with an update (and a little something extra
I don't expect I'll be opening commissions again for a while- I don't have a set date or any idea of when I'd be ready to do so again. I've put all my personal projects aside for so long and I have so much I want to share with all of you and just complete for myself. Recent events in my life have reminded me that time shouldn't be taken for granted, and because of that, I intend to do as much as I can with my personal working title project as well as turn out some new fanart pieces that I hope to have available as prints.
Another thing I really need to do is try some new techniques and hone my skills a bit more. I need to start traveling outside of my comfort zone when it comes to art, because personally I'm not seeing any leaps towards being able to draw the stuff I want the way I see it in my head. That and I need to just sketch, every day, I need to make a habit of it. I barely picked up a pencil the past few months, and every day I don't draw is a day left behind and not advancing or improving.
As to conventions, most of you already know I am not attending any this year. I'm honestly pretty bummed about not being able to attend Anime Expo this year. I haven't sewn any costumes in a year. Its honestly really a bizarre feeling for me not to be doing these things, but with all that happened between last year and the last couple months, it just hasn't been possible and financially I just haven't been able to do any of it. (I do have all the materials pre-purchased for several costumes I still plan to do though, so I'm not quitting or anything! I'm just on hiatus for a little while getting life back in order). I'm truly, deeply going to miss everyone this year, but I hope everybody has a great time!
In other news, apparently yesterday marks 10 years for me since I joined deviantart :0!! I'm honestly surprised I haven't done more here by now to be honest, haha. Granted I had a few years where I wasn't doing art at all and I was in school and procrastinating. But hey! Not a bad milestone I guess
I give so much thanks to all of you who've joined me and stuck around and enjoyed my art. Every kind word is an inspiration to me to keep going and makes me so happy that people enjoy my work
You guys rock!
Have a great summer everyone!!
