2014 - Summary

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 30, 2014, 1:08 PM
Once in a while there comes a time when I have to prove myself that I actually improved, at least a little bit. Just to show that all my efforts are not in vain.

So putting aside my shortcomings and the fact that I didn't keep all my plans and resolutions - here's the list of things that I DID succeed at this year:


2014 - SUMMARY OF ART




GENERAL



- I've reached 200 deviations! Although I added deviations less frequently, I kept on drawing.

- I've started a Polish group :icondaktywni: and already got many valuable comments. Even if sometimes they're a little difficult to bear with, I'm thankful for all of them.



DIGITAL ART



- I finally started drawing backgrounds! All right, for now they're nothing more than some random strokes. But since before I was only adding some gradient at the end (with one or two exceptions), that's some progress.

- I experimented with some more dynamic poses. Experimented is a key word here... But I tried!

- As for semi-realism, I pracitced drawing portraits (and may have finally found the acceptable way to draw thesemi-realistic hair).

- Also, I attempted at drawing semi-realistic animals.

- I practiced sketches, lineart and colouring through collab - Switch Around Meme. I had a lot of fun with this!

TRADITIONAL ART



- I discovered soft pastels and fell in love with them. I think more drawings are to be expected next year.

- I tried adding some colour accents to my realistic portaits (and then abandoned realistic traditional portraits for over half a year)

- I practiced pencil technique a little bit. I hope it'll be visible in my next portrait.

2015 - PLANS



Now I'm getting serious.


1. Here's the (in)complete list of elements I'm going to work on this year:

a) colours
b) anatomy

c) perspective
d) backgrounds
e) lineart
f) shading
g) drawing clothes 

I'm starting with a) and b) from January 2015.


2. My manga

I've been working on it this year. I thought through the story, designed a few characters and even have some drafts of the first few pages. So expect some uploads soon!


3. Challenges

I'm getting back to my challenges that have been suspended for a while.


4. Get back to traditional art

Recently I've turned more to digital art but I'm not going abandon pencils. This year I'm going to fix that.

Life is much easier to get through when the reality is only one of the options available.

There are two kinds of people: you and everyone else.

I started drawing because I wanted to, not because I'm good at it. There's still a long way to go but I'm going to improve.

I appreciate any critiques, comments and opinions that can help me to achieve this aim. I don't get offended easily.

Urgh, why are there all these recap episodes in Wolf's Rain!? > ~ < I'm skipping through almost everything here and it's really annoying, because I'm never sure if they throw in a tidbit of new content in the middle -_-

I don't like recap episodes ;/ But I was watching WR with Rainhowls who had already seen it before and she said it was not worth watching it, so we just skipped. I don't remember missing any important information because of that.

It were four episodes with one unique sentence at the start and one unique sentence of the end of the episode, which made the episode feel like it was shown from the perspective of each main character.

Other than that, they used exactly the same footage and audio of the previous episodes in the series, but in a different order (generally to focus on specific characters)

You're better off watching the Endless Eight >.>
