2017 Creative Tales

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 15, 2017, 1:49 AM
So as we head dauntlessly into 2017 I'd love to know how you are all doing!

Any creative goals for this year?
Bucket list items to tick off?
New skills to learn?

Personally I'm trying to rewire my brain for using my beautiful new 27inch Cintiq pen and touch (Thank you ReapingFields - best pressie ever other than my cameras!!)

I'm aiming to do more equine art this year - sorry if thats not what you initially watched me for but a gal has to have some hobbies that are not stock you know :P

New stock. Yer. Its coming I have have several things to put in place first.  I have no ETA on this I'm going with the flow.
I'm also doing a heath and safety course next week for work which is different and not at all what I am used to doing so we'll see how that goes :)

I'm hoping to get fit again and maybe partake in a wolf run in memory of my dad but right now thats pie in the sky since I doubt I could stagger more than a few meters without feeling like I'm having a heart attack.  (Lofty goals!)

So how about you?

How are you doing? Everything ok?

My goals are to increase my knowledge and skills in photomanipulations.

I can't wait to see more of your amazing stock and I wish you much fun and luck with your hobbies and interests as well!

Wow! What an awesome prezzie! 
I think my goals should now include 'Drop big hints to all my family & friends to get me one of those' Wink/Razz hahaha, lofty goals indeed :D (Big Grin) 
some of my little goals include getting more sleep, sort out my collection of photos that havent yet been uploaded to dA and find all those exclusive stock passwords I lost when my hard drives were damaged by my clumsy brother 2 years ago! 
How times flies! 

On another note, I'm hoping to use a few more of your wonderful stock images in upcoming artworks...though its been such a long time since I posted anything new over at GingerKellyStudio and it seems I've forgotten how to use dA or alot has changed round here...
I think I've fainted.

I plan on learning a new language or two [or at least becoming fluent in one new language] 
Making more artwork :) And drawing humans, also working on animations. 
Maybe even throw a little working out in there at least once a week to do something physical.

I plan on doing a lot more training on facial expressions and bodylanguage in general. havent done much of t thus far yet though as my curret stuff at the practicum I am at, is killing my wrists and fingers. ( cleaning up in local shools very messy exam papers from up to 20 years ago )
but once that is over I'll get back to it.
else no really any goals. apart from eating more veggies 8'D I want to train up for marathon, but feel it will be waste to start now seeing as pollen allergies will start to kick in in 2 months time.

maybe find a costume I can work on over the year for a convention.? 8'D

I only have a job for a couple more months, then I am job hunting in a place that doesn't have much for me...
I am streaming on a regular basis, and having a lot of fun with that... I was partnered with Twitch late last year, so there is a little income that will help there...
I am making lots of small games, working on animations for people, and getting my name out for doing that...
I have friends who are going to raise money to fly me to America for TwitchCon in October...

That's most of it at the moment...

I always seem to miss your streams, damn those timezones! 
Wishing you the best of luck for job hunting!
America sounds exciting as does the games development, hopefully somebody will notice your hard work and head hunt you for their amazing new game studio ;)

Thanks, Lanny... I need all the luck I can get...

I hope to see you in stream one day, maybe when the clocks change again...
