I haven't made a journal in over a year. Yikes.
I wanted to write this journal today to notify whoever is watching me still (I don't blame you if you've forgotten me since I've been so inactive) that I am going to get back into the swing of things and start posting artwork again after such a long hiatus of not doing anything.
I have recently gotten more motivation to do drawing again, as I have thought of a different perspective on how to approach it. I mostly missed the joy that drawing and doing artwork would give me and I felt I was spending too much time when I would work on a particular project.
What I plan on working on are my drawing skills, as I feel like my linework especially could be refined a lot more, since before hand it would take me ages to just get lines right to where I was satisfied.
Thanks to the help of Jonah Lobe (great character/concept artist who worked at Bethesda for 7 years) on his stream, he helped me to figure out what I can do to solve my problems from before, so I'll probably be posting a lot of sketch dumps throughout the next few weeks or so. I'm not gonna make any promises on what artwork I'll be doing or how often I'll be doing it. I'm still busy at college and I'm still trying to work on game development and my Melee skills, but I'm definitely trying to draw more regularly now.
I'll be focusing on practicing for the time being and enjoying just the act of drawing. Something like taking an hour out of the day to draw 6 10-minute sketches of something to help get me in the mode for drawing. It seems simple enough.
I don't know when I'll update my page or my icons or much of anything yet, as it will be a gradual process, but I definitely miss the joys that this website would bring me and I want to be a part of it again.
I chose today because it marks my 21st birthday, as well as the fact that I haven't had my tablet when I did get the motivation, my little brother has had it for a bit, but I should be getting it back today, along with several helpful books on drawing too.
That will be all for now.
