There have many a happening lately, which should explain my quietness lately on here. Here's an update!
As said in recent submissions, I just underwent quite a hefty workload in a Portfolio class this semester. It was rather stressful but less for the work and moreso because I felt as if I had very little direction. I have a degree in Graphic Design but I am sick of the field and am aiming towards something more illustrative instead so therefore I wanted my Portfolio to contain more illustrations than design. Well, my school doesn't have
any illustration degrees or classes so barely anyone can actually draw
and thus barely any teachers can actually critique
illustration. So my professor did not tell me much. He was encouraging but not very helpful as far as... helping me figure out what I should actually put into the Portfolio/what I should aim for. So the entire semester was essentially just me teaching myself and organizing myself and putting everything together myself.
So that's why I have been so inactive. At least the class gave me an idea on how to properly organize and actually commit and do
things by myself as opposed to having everything set out for me. So that had its perks in its own way. I can honestly say I'm still super glad to be done with it, though.
With all that out of the way I'm back to doing STUFF! I have a huuuuge list of things to do now that I have a break. The Selection
is included of course. I'll list a basic rundown of things I plan on trying to accomplish within, roughly, the next 3-ish months: The Selection on a consistent schedule and with a buffer
(hopefully some of the revamp work but that's less priority at this point, much to my dismay). Finish all work on my To-Do list
including: Diabolus of the Dead
comic for NuclearLoop
, Rage!Match with ReverendAspen
, and that god-awful long awaited Blooper Reel from my last ToH round. I will do this at some point I DEMAND IT. All client work.
This is actually priority over everything but you know. Continue writing PICARD.
I may end up continuing this during Camp NaNoWriMo but not sure yet.
Other less important projects but still things I would like to finish or start: Ambivian Species references
, which will include, for sure, a sheet on their anatomy, differences between genders and ranks (Royal vs common), and physical characteristics such as ears/tails/etc combination since there surprisingly is
a setup for how those work. Mostly as a way to clarify it for you all, since they can be a bit complicated. Complete and post an older story about blacorite Linda.
I got 12 chapters in and kinda stopped. I'd like to finish that up since I liked it quite a bit. Do references for more characters.
There are so many other things I'd love to do, of course, including a project involving various comic strips for PICARD
and bringing back more life into The Alfas
and Calestine Princess
but I figured the above are a bit more important on the list. But... one day! I also actually have considered a comic'd story for Spirit, believe it or not, but I am hoping to do that a year or two from now. So there's no rush in that regard.
For the time being, now until the end of this year I'll be finishing up all owed Client work and an OCT prize. I'll slip in TS in there as well. Come next year the above is my goal! I'll be posting some more Portfolio work gradually since I did a lot of work I'm extremely proud of. How has life been for everyone else? Please fill me in on anything I may have missed these last few months!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Decemberween everyone!
