So... been about a year since I updated my journal again
I think it's time I was frank about a few things.
Let's get the obvious out of the way: I've stopped updating my journal on a frequent basis and in general because guess what? I don't like or care to do them anymore. At least when it comes to updating on my life events. Call me a bore or recluse, I just don't really need that sort of outlet anymore (at the moment anyway). I don't even really update my Tumblr, Twitter or Facebook to be honest. I'm more on any social media to see how other people are doing; not to personally share.
I'm aware that makes me look bad in a sort of shying away from everyone sort of thing. But it's not like anyone (save for a couple of people) really hits me up on notes asking me how I am on here these days, so. And I know communication is a two way street; I could be more reaching out to others myself, but honestly, most of the people I used to care about/enjoy on this site have pretty much left it or are around once in a blue moon.
The art feedback I get these days is pretty sporadic as well. (The fact the way the page layout is that it shows how many faves/comments you have on your deviations adds to the insecurity.) Again, I take some of the responsibility there in that my own updates of it are sporadic, plus I don't really put much of my own to others either, so that's fair.
And the fact you have to pay an arm and leg to have a core sub just to view the best version of this website is discouraging too (I'm Canadian remember, and my dollar is weak to the USD, so that sucks
). I basically buy it in three month increments, because the annual one is disgustingly high. (Okay maybe it would be cheaper to buy the annual one in the long run, but I hate dropping that high of an amount in one go for something like this.)
I guess I'm rambling a bit at this point, but I figured you guys (whoever still even reads this) some sort of explanation. As you may have also noticed, I posted a poll asking about alternative websites to post art. Because I'm seriously looking into more casual/active places to post.
As much as I still like feedback, I feel like posting on other places would be liberating in that feedback/comments are not as shoved in your face/openly obvious as on dA, if that makes any sense. And maybe find a wider/new audience. Therefore I might be more encouraged to be more frequent.
So yeah... once I do that, you can expect a small journal update here again, linking to those once I set them up and figure some stuff out.
Speaking of, there's some specific stuff I need to figure out in regards to Colour. Having my hubby up here the last few months, working on his own stuff and giving me things to think about, there's definitely some shit I need to sort out with my own series. If I ever want to ever really rewrite/edit and complete the Colour story (whether that's straight up writing it as an actual novel and/or maybe rebooting the comic/graphic novel), I realise I need to both narrow down the narrative and fill in the gaps of all the plot holes in said narrowed down narrative. It's funny, some parts and characters I have so clear in my head, and others I just haven't the foggiest idea.
So... that's a thing I want to do moving forward. I mean, I'll still draw what I want, as long as I feel I can get away with (if that changes, you'll see or hear about it). I might even post about it here for feedback if anyone makes an indication of wanting to hear about it when I get there.
Anywho, I guess that's all the gist of things going on with me (creatively) right now. If you're curious and want to know about anything else, ask~
