Freedom! I'm off from uni for the summer now, and you know what that means? Time to fulfill my promises and get back on here! What I've got here is the Summer Plan!
For the last few days I've been uploading a picture a day, and I'm hoping to keep on doing that, since I always want to draw every day and I've left dA along for so long that I need to catch up... So part one of the Summer Plan is to draw every day and keep uploading for as long as possible, even if it's just scraps on some days.
The big project that I want to get started this summer is the webcomic I've been planning for a long, long time. My older watchers might remember some art I did of characters that'll be appearing in it, which I posted way back in early 2011 =O Well no more waiting around! For the first couple of weeks of the break I'm going to finalise my designs for characters and settings (which I'll be posting up here for all to see), and then Ima start working on them pages! When I upload it, I'll make a new folder in my gallery and upload all the pages there, as well as posting them to webcomics sites. I'm not totally sure which ones yet, I still need to research, but probably smackjeeves.com and others. So that's Summer Plan part two! Start the webcomic!
At some point during this break I'd like to officially open up commissions for the first time. So far I've done one-off commissions for people I know personally, but I think I'm ready to start branching out and doing business. I've got a price chart sorted out already, but there's other stuff I need to organise before I'm ready to go on that front, so I'm not sure when that'll end up happening, but hopefully some time this break! Behold Summer Plan part three!
The other thing I'd like to do in terms of art is maybe do some more livestreams. I can't remember how to do them anymore, but I remember the first one I did was fun and went fairly smoothly, and got quite a good reaction, so maybe more of that on the way! I'll make sure to announce it better next time though That's part four, though it's less certain than parts one, two and three. I might wait until I've started posting the webcomic for that.
That's what's on the art agenda for the summer anyways. Out in the personal realms I'm going to be having a visit from my lovely girlfriend coming over from America in June, so I'm super excited about that. I'm also probably going to be working lots of overtime (I have a real life job too, y'know), and doing some light research for my dissertation which I'll be starting next year! Scary, huh?
Well, to the new ladies and gents, welcome to the party and I hope you enjoys your stay... To the old timers in the audience, thanks for sticking with us during the hiatus!
Stay cool folks,
