Just letting you all know that I'm still alive! I check my accounts nearly daily.
This year was just a bad year for art, time and inspiration wise. I think everyone knows that art is/can be tied to the emotional state of the artist, if you aren't feeling to awesome then you are most likely aren't going to have the will to draw. I don't know how many pieces I started and completely lose interested right away and left them unfinished or just plain become disgusted with them and delete them right away. Also the balance between work, family and friends is always there, my life isn't solely online.
I hope to change the amount of art I produce this year, as in more! XD I believe that I have come along way and have become even better, thanks to all those that have allowed me to draw their characters for free! (still plugging away at those btw!) Doing free sketches has really helped me out a lot.
I also think that I was putting unnecessary pressure on myself to be GREAT right away, every idea had to be super awesome super fast, trying to make something what would get a bunch of views and favorites just like all the popular artists. no more. I'm just going to do whatever da hell I wanna do and if you like it cool! I'll just have to learn how to deal with the trolls and drama queens as they come I guess.
