....Ya know, drawing your characters after such a long period of time is a really interesting thing.
I actually thought that I'd go into complete meltdown mode because I had forgotten how to draw them, or something like that. But surprisingly, that appears to not be the case. Save for a few stylistic choices that come with time (change in how I draw hair, faces, bodies, whatevs.), it's been pretty easy, but also fun.
But it's also interesting because there are certain characters that I've needed to revamp for a while, so it's interesting to see how they have changed all this time.
Considering how I've been feeling the last Mahal knows how long...this is something really, really comforting.
Anyway, I'm really wanting to be a lot more serious in doing my comic (remember that old thing? "Welcome to Everglades", or at least that was the title for it, which seems to stick even to this day.) See, when I moved to this house, I had gotten rid of like, everything (LONG STORY SHORT), including any work I had done on said comic.
There was a point where this made me feel REALLY sad, and defeated. But one day, I was out walking, which for some reason is where most of my creative ideas come from, I thought...THAT was a really good thing, and that I've been wanting to make some serious tweaks and changes anyway. Even with the characters that were going to be the focus (one day I was like, JFC, you have WAY TOO MANY main characters in this thing!) So anyway, I'm hoping at some point I'll be able to finish some of my more recent drawings....
In other random news, I apologize I'm also very terrible at replying to comments - these days I am spending much less time online (I see this as a good thing, actually.) and when I am online it's actually usually on my iPhone, and I've yet to download the DA app yet (altho it's getting pretty terrible reviews, so....) I would like to say that I am open, should anyone be interested, in getting back into art trades again, so hit me up if you are interested.
Also, if we started an art trade like five zillion years ago and I have yet to draw your picture...Yeah, please hit me up to, chances are life got the better of me and I completely forgotten. *SMASHES FACE INTO WALL*
Anyhoo, hope you all are having a good day!
