2012 Summary of Art by Dualmask 2012 Summary of Art by Dualmask
Well, here's my 2012 Art Summary. Saw a few others doing it so I figured, I might as well join in the fun.

Girl drawings dominate, as always, but they're just the tip of the iceberg compared to the overall volume of work I've produced this year.

It's been a pretty productive year for me art-wise, having gotten significantly more commissions this year than I'd ever gotten before (likely in no small part due to that image I did for March), successful completion of a month-long Daily Draw event on Satellite Soda, and starting (and giving up) my first attempt at a webcomic and all.

But things slowed to a crawl for me as the year lurched on and I found myself either having only time to do art for others, or lacking the energy/motivation to do much at all even when my workload was light.

I'm hoping for a more productive year in 2013 and I hope intend to overcome whatever it is that holds me back from producing a personal project of my own. I've seen many of my friends take great strides toward putting their work out there this year, and I want to be among those ranks. I have many ideas brewing, I just need to make myself settle for one until it's ready for action. There's no magic trick to it, I just have to make myself be more productive and resistant to the urge for instant gratification.

I also looked back on a past year summary I did, and saw that I've been saying the same stuff for years now... something's gotta give.

By the way, April's image was supposed to be my "Soul Guide line art" but I didn't want Christiana to appear up there twice so I picked my second most popular image for that month.

That ended up being my second most popular commission of all time! As I repeatedly stated, she's a great character!

When you don't know what you want to do, just do what you CAN do, that's what I always say. :D

I always know what I want to do, but it takes awhile for reality to catch up with my super brain :rofl:

Well as I said, this barely scratches the surface of all the things I've created this year...but I chose based on favorites per month, so I guess people like seeing those raised elbows. :lol:

I think from now on we should refer to those poses as "pit perfect" XD (sorry, sometimes I can't help the puns)

Ok, busy month as I'm sure you know. One of my least favorite months because it hinders the drawing with all the running around to get things done before the 25th. I'm always happy to see Jan. come rolling in.

I know just what you mean, especially being married into a large family that's VERY big on Christmas and all the gatherings and giftings... can't wait for it to be over so I can get back to serious work.
