I think it's time I address the elephant in the room that probably no one but me has noticed or even cares about, and to which I'm probably giving way too much credit for being strange.
But what ho, might as well make note of it.
Why haven't I been drawing as many ponies lately?
The short answer is, I just don't have as many Pony-related ideas at the moment. Most of my ideas are centered on The Harmony Guild
and I'm trying to let the comic progress naturally and, like, not spoil it before it's run something of a course. So there's that.
The other short answer is, I'm simply more interested in drawing other things right now. Part of that is because I'm not currently caught up on MLP, so I'm not as inundated with the show as before, hence not as flooded with inspiration. And the thing is, I have a lot
of interests... my Gallery doesn't even reflect half
of the fandoms I'm involved in, or my hobbies, or the things that make me happy, or the things I've been hoping to create! Needless to say, I've really been enjoying branching out from my usual content and drawing more Marvel, Disney, Dreamworks, etc... and it's really encouraged me to do more of that.
It really just feels great to be back at it with the things that have been important to me for years, long before MLP:FiM even existed, y'know? Hell, I used to draw so much Spider-Man... and so much Disney... Sometimes you don't realize how much you missed something until you re-enter it for the first time in a while.. ^_^
As for life in general, things are going okay; very busy, but okay. If I'm honest, I've been depressed; certainly not the worst I've ever been, but still. It does make the simple things difficult, and having some rather crippling bouts of anxiety on top of the depression really hasn't helped.
You know what has
My friends ^_^
and drawing lots of Marvel ^_^
and watching great shows like New Girl, HTTYD:Race to the Edge, and Tangled ^_^
and holding my cats and my bunnies and my puppy ^_^
And my friends ^_^
Did I already say that? <3
In other news, I'm happy to say I got a part-time housecleaning job! Fortunately the hours are such that it shouldn't interfere with commission work at all.
Related, commissions are still closed, info Journal is under construction, and the waitlist for the next round is almost full! If you want to reserve a slot, let me know ASAP! I'll be accepting PayPal and Points this time around. Many old styles have been thrown out, as I don't want to do them anymore :3 but lots of new, prettier style options will be available to order
Anywho, thanks for everything <3 I'm also coming up on 1K Watchers, which is very exciting! I want to do something cool to celebrate, I have no idea what though... would be open to suggestions if anybody has any!
Love and hugs to all <3
