In the past few months I have been pondering what I really want to do with my artwork. After thinking about it, I really just do it as a hobby - I don't expect to get a job with my drawings. It's just a fun way to relax and be involved in fandom (as a creepy lurker online this is nice lol). I also want to challenge myself more though. I thought a list would help.
:iconlazeplz: I need to work on/challenge myself with:
- perspective and dynamic poses
- environmental/backgrounds
- experimenting with styles/color
- original comics (Be Mine) and stand alone short stories
- having fun and not caring if everything is "prefect"

...that last one. OTL I tend to work on a drawing for very long - the result being that I hate it more and more as I go. This is NOT good - esp for someone who says they do it for fun! I miss the old days where I would draw something and show it without hesitation. I really had fun drawing back when I was in to the Naruto fandom (this is a decade ago LOL)

Recently I have started helping the group boyxgirl! :iconboyxgirl:
As the name suggests, the group focus is boyxgirl romance drawings. If you have a romantic/couple picture, please feel free to join and submit~! We are hoping to also have a small contest soon. I hope you'll join in!

Diving right into reality some things offline have been a little tight, so I might open simple commissions soon.
I wont give up though, I am always glad to have (for the most part) positive outlook on things.

:iconaawplz: Thank you for being so supportive of me! I am still shocked that people watch/fav and comment. It means so much to me so thank you very much!!

I'm all for you drawing more. :) I pretty much came to the same conclusion about art (drawing as a hobby and not expect to get a job with my drawings). I also miss the old days where I would show my drawings without hesitation. As for the challenges, I guess best way of tackling those is to drawing comics. I'm also thinking about trying to get back to doing original comics again. Wanna be motivational partners? :3 I would suggest collaboration of some sort, but I'm such a flake now that I doubt I can get anything done on my side. XD If you get Be Mine going again, I'll be happy to draw some fanarts for you. :D

As always, if you ever need help or whatever, I'll be here.
