I've been meaning to do monthly news posts, but I kept putting the idea off and forgetting about it, and then other people I follow started doing it, and now I feel embarrassed, left out, and derivative (I COULD HAVE BEEN A TREND SETTER MA)!
So let's Rectify that with...
Alright, so as far as anything personal, I really don't have much to say...
Slowly but surely, I'm getting things done, and the New Year's Resolution List has been playing out decently well (I've certainly been more chatty and less anxious)!
So, let me tell you what I got planned and in the works!
- Acts of Fromed -
Alright, so... I owe like... 16 people an Act of Fromed, and I ain't got a single one done yet! Kind of got sucker punched at the beginning of the year, but the fact that none of them are done yet ultimately falls on me. However, the one I'm currently working on is arguably my most ambitious project yet, so I can't be too upset at the amount of time I've taken, and the recipient of this Act of Fromed (You know who you are) has been nothing but a pleasure to work with! Hopefully, it won't be too much longer!
- Thank you Comic(s) -
As a self-imposed rule, I have to make a comic every time I get 16 followers... I've only made the one... I should probably do something about that...
- Kirby's Dreamland 3 Enemies Reimagined -
Have been wanting to do this for quite a while now but just haven't found the time to do so.
I don't know why, but this little game popped into my head a few weeks ago, and I finally decided to go back and get every friend after having failed to do so years ago! After finishing what is ultimately a somewhat charming & tedious experience, I decided to make some fan art for it!
- My Secret Project -
I think the time is finally come to share with you all the personal project I've been working on this whole time! I think it's finally come far enough along to start showing you (yes, ✦☆✦you✦☆✦, thee reader) the progress that's been made and what it's all about! On the 27th, I'll finally show you Sillius Anactous!
(Note: Just want to take a quick little aside to say that art wise, there's not much done (Those 16 Acts of Fromed ain't gonna make themselves! (Yo, can you put parentheses inside of parentheses?)). I've been mostly playing around with the guts of my little world, trying to get it to function in a way that I like, and I think I finally have a system in place that works! I can't wait to show you (Technically, that's a lie because I'm waiting for the 27th and all that...)!)
Until then, I'd like to show off some people I feel deserve more attention!
Each month I want to use this segment to spotlight at least Three (3) Artists, I feel don't get enough attention!
(Note: I'm @ing because I don't want to seem like I'm talking behind anyone's back or anything)
Good Ol' Stabbus! An Artist that not only had a huge influence over my current color choices but whose stuff I enjoy overall! I should really get back to studying their art now that my artistic abilities have improved!
Did you know I commissioned them a while back? It's Ture! You can hop right on over to their gallery and see for yourself! Or even take a look at my latest favorite art (Last one on the right, ya can't miss it!)! Was thinking about asking for another commission at the start of the year, but for those in the know, costly things just wouldn't stop happening! Now that my finances have had time to breathe, I feel the moment nearing in which I can make my request known at last!
I also owe them some rodents that I should get to work on pretty soon...
Now here we have an incredible Artist that makes Beasts of all sorts! And another Artist I admire for their color choices! Now I haven't seen them around in a while, and I can't tell you where they're most active, but I do wholeheartedly recommend that you check out their stuff.
Fun fact: He's one of the first people I made an Act of Fromed for! Where is it? Never uploaded it! I thought to ask for permission, but the last time we had correspondence, I kind of dropped the ball by ghosting him... I didn't mean to. I just wound up getting a bit too anxious and kept putting off responding to him. As such, I was not only too embarrassed but lacked the gall to ask for something. I'd make something as an apology, but I've got a bit too much on my plate at the moment. So, Azpher, if by some chance you're reading this, just know that I owe you some art!
Speaking of Beasts & Monsters, here we have another incredible Artist who makes them!
Caught a News Post they made a few days ago expressing their frustration over their lack of followers. Now, normally I would roll my eyes at someone wondering why they're not more popular, but I can't deny that I think it's messed up that such an amazing artist is beneath me in followers! I personally don't care that much about that number under my name, but I'd be lying if I said that I don't acknowledge it. The fact that I barely upload and see that number increase while this Artist displays skills far above my own and receives little to no attention is baffling (Perhaps if their stuff was in color, it'd be more eye-catching)! Either way, if you don't believe me go see for yourself! Check out their gallery! I'll even make it easy for you!
And that's it for this month's Artist Corner!
Hopefully, you see something you like in at least one of these Artists!
But Wait, There's More!
I didn't really know where else to put this, so I'll be putting it here. According to the weather reports, winter is finally stopped! Not that it really matters... Only had like a month of snow here anyway! However, on one of the last snowy days, I decided to visit a small bridge not too far from where I live to take this picture! I know it's nothing special, but I thought I'd share it with you all anyway!
When I went to go take the picture, it was actually much brighter in the day, but I had to wait for a group of pesky teens™ to get out of my way >:[! Honestly, though, I think the picture looks better than it would have if I had taken it then and there!
Anyway, that's it for now! Catch ya later!
