First day of DeviantART: June 19th, 2010.
Point Commissions: CLOSED
Art Trades: CLOSED
Alright, so I started college, and after dropping a class that was going to have far
too much work, I'm not too worried about school affecting my art or ability to stream. I've only got 3 classes, Tuesday through Thursday, and Tuesday's class is only an hour long. Wednesday and Thursday are the days I'm going to be a little more absent on, because I have a 5-hour art classes on both of those days, that end around 6.
I don't want to get ahead of myself, because I've only just started and I'm sure there will be a lot more work later on, but as for now, I think my art output/streaming ability won't suffer too much as long as I keep on top of my work. I should
have a big doodle/art dump to post here pretty soon, so look forward to that!
I still haven't had much motivation for actual finished pictures, I've only been doodling a lot, but I'm not in an "art block" anymore, like I said in my last journal. I'm still sort of caught in that strange in-between where I have to make myself sit down and draw, but once I do, everything goes well. Hopefully that resolves itself in time and I go back to wanting to draw and drawing all the time. Until then, I'm pretty content with all these nice doodles I'm making.
I just really want to be energetic again, art wise and IRL-wise. I'm not depressed in any way, shape or form, I just want to be active again. I've been sitting here on my butt for the longest time and even though I was pretty content with that earlier, I was still more "active" about sitting on my butt, if that makes any sense. I was just more excited with things, I guess, and would do more while sitting on my butt than just go on tumblr. So I'm going to try to work on that. I'm going to sit on my butt, but in a much more wholesome
Now, I haven't been working on them lately, but there are a few things I want to finish up and show to you guys. I was doodling some Chaos & Hoodie characters a while back and I hope to doodle the few important characters I have for that. The cast is really underdeveloped, there's not many characters at all that are beyond a concept, and there are a few more-developed characters that I have no idea what to do with right now, so those character sketches might be really lacking for quite a while.
I know you guys said you wanted to know more about it, but in reality, I don't have much. There's hardly any plot, if any
, a bare-bones cast, and it's little more than a couple scenes and a city floating around in my head right now. I will give you a little summary of it, though. At it's most basic level, it's a Marvel-esque superhero/villain story that focuses around a lady crime duo, and that duo is Chaos and Hoodie. I doubt it'll solely focus on them, it's bound to skip around a lot between characters, but that's the most basic way to describe the concept. Honestly, Chaos and Hoodie is not one of my more important "headworlds", so you're probably going to see a lot of other stuff before it becomes important in any way.
This journal wasn't supposed to be long, and I'm only a little sorry for that. I'm going to continue rambling.
I do want you guys to know more about my OC's! I know there's not very much info on them at all, and I don't keep you guys updated on their shenanigans. Now obviously I'm not going to tell you everything my OC's get up to, that'd be ridiculous and annoying. I think, instead of doing that, it would be cool to make more pictures of what happens in my RP's, or make doodle dumps that aren't all mixed up. Like doodle dumps for specific stories/"headworlds"/RP's and stuff. I also want to put up some refs sheets, but they're a lot of work, so I can't promise you I'll have a ref for every important OC I have up in a timely manner, especially because that's not what I want to focus on right now. Like I said earlier, I need to get back into the groove of things first.
Actually, looking through my gallery right now, I think I have a good idea to get back into the swing of full-scale pictures. I might go and re-do some earlier pieces from my gallery, I think some of them are old enough that I brought them over here when I switched accounts. I know I want to re-do one of my old pieces for a contest soon, so this sounds like a pretty good idea to me~
If any of you care about my gaming, either, I just started Harvest Moon 3D: Tale of Two Towns.[TLDR] School started and is going fine, my schedule is only 3 days a week and I don't think it will impact my art or streaming in any way. I'm still a bit weird motivation-wise, and I want to try to make myself happier/more active in my life.
Despite Chaos and Hoodie being underdeveloped and unimportant among my other stories/"headworlds"/RP's, I do want to tell you guys more about it, and show you some more stuff, so hopefully people get excited when I do develop it more and turn it into something cool.
I want you guys to know more about my OC's, and I'm (hopefully) going to try to give you more information through story-specific doodle dumps, drawings of scenes, and character ref sheets.
In order to get back into drawing full-scale pictures instead of doodles, I might re-draw some old stuff from my gallery.
I might try to stream Friday or something, maybe Thursday night too if I'm not super tired. Might go to re-do a picture instead of doodles this time, but I don't know, we'll see.
How are you guys doing? Let me know, I love talking to you!
