Lol. I missed my own DeviantART birthday. xD
So what's happened in the past year (and two days)? Well... not a whole lot, admittedly.
- I made a lot
of silly little avatars/icons and photomanipulations and very simple animations. They were fun and allowed me to work in a different context than I'm used to. Of course it's been quite a while since I made a new one but I plan to quite soon... as soon as I finish these gosh darned gifts!!
- I began experimenting with a new sort of digital art style - lineless airbrushing. It's been hit and miss (those pictures of Jolen, Johnny Smith, and Voldemort are probably my best) but it's so much fun. I only wish my watchers would respond to the change in style in some way, either for better or for worse. But what can you do? Probably 75% of them forgot I exist.
- Speaking of inactive watchers... Pokémon art has more or less been put on the back burner for me. I still like it, still love Mewtwo, still write weird fanfiction about him (it just doesn't exactly make it onto DeviantART), but I just never really feel satisfied with my art of him. Maybe someday something will just click and I'll share the result, but for now I'm having so much fun with humans I'd be hard-pressed to do any Mewtwo.
- NEW OBSESSION! (Stargate, hehe.) Put it right up there with Star Trek and teh Pokeymanz. I've probably started ten fanfics even if only one has made it onto the 'net.
- College... this was a huge one. Has pretty much sapped me of the energy/motivation to actually write and draw and do things that are of substance.
- Switched Identities came back... and then it kinda went back into hibernation. (This must be IMMENSELY frustrating for all you readers, huh?) Well maybe I'll upload Bridge II if I can finish it this break.
It's been a year of rebirth, new birth, death, survival, new discoveries, and more than anything, creativity. It's been a joy and honour getting to know all of you who are my friends and if you're usually an inactive watcher, I'd love to hear from you! Really!
With that, I'll leave you all with a Merry Christmas and God Bless. If ya don't celebrate Christmas, then.. uh... enjoy the Sunday off and the Monday federal holiday. Blessings to you nonetheless. (:
And a Happy New Year, if you don't hear from me by the time that rolls around!
Oh, and GO HUSKERS!!! Beat those Gamecocks!!
