Summary of Art 2018 by dSana Summary of Art 2018 by dSana

This is my 4th annual "Summary of Art" post!

2018 has been the busiest and most insane year of my life in general, as I was away from home almost 9 months.

I have set myself many art-oriented  goals for 2018 and reached some of them, most notably I started to draw & paint daily without vectors following online courses I could afford thanks to my very generous Patrons :)

I've received an amazing support from all of you who commented, watched, faved, requested commission or donated money. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My old laptop finally died and new one was bought. 

I made a second cover for IDW Publishing.  I completed another Inktober.  I reached 3,999 Watchers :D

I kept posting The Shadow Shard on regular basis and although I failed to finish it, there are only 20 or so pages left to do. 

Prompted by friends and supporters, I started drawing bugs and will continue to do so in 2019. My OC, Stainless Key  entered Berserkerverse, stars in The Greater Flame and appears here as well!

At least one of the two short stories I promised in 2018 may materialize in 2019. 

Last but not least I just want to make the best out of the incoming last(?) year of Gen 4 and continue growing as an artist :)

Happy New Year 2019! ❤

It's been a good year for you, artistically. Hopefully it's been a good year in other ways, too.

And here's to more years of increased artistic prowess and good living!

It really has been insane this year.  In spite of that, I'm happy you've been able to accomplish so much, even if you didn't achieve all your goals.  I'm thankful for all the commissions you drew me and how your art and stories inspired me to create and compose music (and still does).  It's amazing how much you've grown as an artist in spite of the challenges of 2018.

It's funny because when you said there are 20 or so pages left of Shadow Shard, I felt a tinge of sadness, like I was about to say farewell to a dear friend.  I mean, 20 pages is a lot, but the idea that such a wonderful story has to end is kinda sad.  But that makes it all the more precious, and I trust your abilities as a storyteller to know when and how to end it.  Shadow Shard captivates me as a reader and inspires me as a composer.  I look forward to following the journey to the end.

And I look forward to seeing what this year brings, both from you and from life in general.  I wish you good fortune as we enter the next chapter of life's journey.

Happy New Year, Stainless!

Happy New Year my friend! I wish you the very best in 2019 Hug 

Thank you for all your kind words. It's always a pleasure to read your comments!

I was inspired to create by other fanartists and now I inspire in return - it's extremely humbling to hear that. I hope you will continue compose music in 2019 Heart 

Indeed, I'm both excited and sad when I think about finishing TSS. It's such an important story to me, but then, I want to tell other stories as well. But hey, as you said 20 pages is a lot - and I might add an epilogue as well (after all it's already written...).

Well that's good to hear. I care about my friends. Oh... by the way... when you and Berzie posted that Status Update about the Greater Flame comic you two were featured in, I went and checked it out myself. I found it really good. So... thank you two for that.
