So, 2016. Where has the time gone? Feels like a breeze honestly.
You may have noticed I got a membership now. Mainly for the reason of changing my username; something I've been meaning to do for the longest time, ever since I've joined DeviantArt. Yeah, I could've made a new account for that "fresh start" but I honestly don't see the point in doing so since traces of my old account would still be up and everywhere because DA can't apparently remove the entirety of deactivated accounts like most other websites. It's not that hard, but for DA it is. Hence this resort.And the fact I don't want people who knew me IRL in the past to track me down should they ever want to for any reason whatsoever. Consider it a identity change.
Anyway, I've been busy. Very much so in college work. It's important to me to really work hard and hope to follow my dream of creating stories and such, you know? To do that, I gotta get the knowledge and work hard. Which unfortunately leaves me extremely little time to do what I love: drawing and writing.
Now this wouldn't be really much of an issue since I do get the weekends off, but the other parts to doing art is more than just time; it's motivation and ideas.
I've had quite a look at my works and such, and I'm just overflowing with new ideas for everything and how to improve it. All the things I'm learning and I just want to use it to give my works a new life. But at the same time, I feel like I can't afford to show it here in fear of the idea getting ripped by someone else with more than me at the moment. So that's something I'm debating currently, whether to take down my personal works and keep them elsewhere or leave them up but somewhere else (this doesn't include fanart though, so the Madoka Witch Project and Fakemon stay!)
I'm also in the process of redesigning all my characters and removing the ones I no longer need; which has now taken quite a lot of time since I want symbolic yet simple designs to go by (that and names are a bitch to think of).
Motivation was the second thing, which is quite hard to get going since I've had a lot of ups and downs going on IRL. A lot of stuff I gotta attend to and deal with, combined with school work, leaving me just dead tired and unable to do much.
So will art stop on this page? Will the projects end? No, not at all. I'll just be busy, but in the rare amount of time I'll get I'll do some art and post here. That I promise!
