I was unable to do this for 2014 since I barely drew (with the exception of this 1 art class I took) throughout the year
So I'm glad I was able to fill most of this out for this year!
July-I decided to study for the JLPT (Japanese Language Proficiency Test) so I ordered 2 textbooks to study and got them in July. Don't know why I didn't draw this month
I suddenly had A LOT more free time time after graduating college so I drew a lot more. Especially in October. It was the first time I completed an Inktober (well 2nd year doing inktober so not too bad lol) I also started a goal of completing monthly sketchbooks and finished one in October (I think) and finished my 2nd one...today haha
I'm doing the sketchbook goal so I can draw a lot lot more and work on those things I always say I need to improve on.
I also experimented a lot with different traditional mediums these past few months. Especially Copic markers. My collection is growing :3 I still want to experiment more with copic, prismacolor color pencils, pen and ink, watercolor, gouache, and maybe acrylic paint.
Now for some concrete art goals!
-I plan to start my comic/manga idea (for real this time) this year haha. I have characters, now I just need to plan out (concretely) the story so I can start drawing it. I also have another comic/manga idea that's more love comedy centered and I hope to work on that too.
-I want to start commissions. I've been on dA for 8 years and have seen many artists come and go and learned a lot from them, personally expanded to sharing my art on other social media but I've never done commissions. It's mainly from my fear of thinking I'm not good enough to do them. But I realize that I will constantly be thinking this and aiming towards improvement so that kind of negative thinking is counter productive :' ) Also I know I don't have many followers so it's hard breaking into the commission world when you're not that well known or have many artist friends that one personally communicates with online to share art with. That won't stop me from putting my artwork out there though. I like sharing what I draw as much as seeing other artists display their works and being part of this large community.
If any of you have read this point...you're amazing.
If you or know someone who might have a general interest in commission work from me please feel free to comment. I don't want to put up any specifics yet until I see how responses are but I will say that digital will definitely be on there. I also want to include traditional art work commissions somehow.
-I also want to livestreams and perhaps even do video recordings of my art process but I need to save up money first to get a decent camera for recording.
Finally, feel free to say hi if you follow me on here or any of my other social media accounts (twitter, instagram; I'm not that active on Tumblr but I do get notifications so if you send a message I'll get it). If you have any questions, related either to art, or anime/manga recommendations, or just wanna chat don't be shy ^^
Thank you everyone! Hope all of you have a good end of the year if you're not already in the future~ It's just a couple more hours until 2016 here
