Once again I have made myself rare, and I'm off to another busy two weeks. But I think I won't be away from the PC for days inbetween anymore, since we're back from the Gamescom (which was straining but awesome by the way) and have to attend our usual business as well as a few appointments.
We're invited next weekend to a friend's birthday party though and will be having guests over on the weekend after that one. Don't expect that much activity at these times, okay?
I haven't posted anything much recently, I noticed, but that dryspell is gonna end soon. I drew a few more things in the meantime, and I will post them as well as one or two old pics I didn't finish until now, depending on when I get to upload and work on them.
Our lives are slowly but surely changing into a better direction now. I got a new side job, plus more requests from an old business contact who came to life again, much to my pleasant surprise XD
Also, I feel more motivated and energized, getting into the routines I want (and need) and losing bad habits such as procrastination and standing in my own way in terms of shyness and hating my own stuff. Hmm, I believe I became a bit more social in the course of this last week and especially the weekend too, which probably isn't a bad thing. Let's see how long it lasts, ha ha.
I'm more than ever focused on my goals now, having managed to stay on track longer than in any phase before. Hope this continues.
I still can't work on one project for a long time coherently, but I've finally learned to only switch around between promising projects or work on multiple stories at once. Luckily, I'm not one to confuse/mix up details from different projects - otherwise, this would be impossible to manage.
Of course I will still take my time until I post real story content, no matter if drawn as a comic or written as a novel, since rushing stuff is a recipe for disaster and shitty-ness. Not to mention that I first need a new tablet as well. Can't work with the old one anymore, and it constantly deters me from trying to draw with it by biting the dust/not connecting or staying connected properly.
Small references, OC pics/sketches, style experiments and exercises as well as more traditional or mixed media in general can be expected though. I reeeeaaaaallllly hope I'll get make enough money to afford at least a cheap new tablet soon. Without a screen, if I must. I can deal with that in terms of learning and adapting, as opposed to something keeping me from practice and improvement at all.
I'm gonna try to be a little more active for now and see what the next month brings...then I can give an update, in case anyone is interested.
Stay bushy-tailed, guys, and have a nice day.
