Lemme break it down if you're all still with itFirst time I did it, yeah I admit itI kinda hit it and quit it and left y'all hangingSinging, kinda off key with the passionAsking, can I give you back that action?
Hello everyone. Basically I'm not really good in writing journals, so I have pasted a lyric from a song called Welcome
by an alternative hip-hop project Fort Minor
which was recently released this 2015. I did so because I wanted to fully express myself on my absence and why all of the sudden I have returned.
Now I have a lot of explaining to do, where have I been? what happened? Well i've been REALLY busy with real-life stuff lately, but that's not all.
I have to admit, the lack of equipment contributed to the decrease of my passion on my art. I don't really have a tablet to help me achieve the type of artistic style that I'm looking for in my pieces and the method I use is painfully time consuming. Another reason for me leaving is that because I have found that the way I do my art is obligatory. Some of you might have noticed that the way I drew things I try to imitate other artists' design. The moment I found myself trying to cut pieces of different character designs of a specific artist from his many works and put the pieces back together in hopes of creating a new design and just simply trace the lines, that killed my zeal to the craft. I realized that my art style is depending too much on someone else's that I'm just a copycat and as an artist, I have become something that is so lazy.
I intentionally took the time-off and went back to my drafts to find my identity. I wanted an art style that I can proudly say is mine. I tried mixing inspirations from Bruce Timm, Phil Bourassa and even Darwyn Cook, but at the end of the day I still want an art style that I can claim as mine. Below is my attempt to draw Henry Cavill's Superman (circa Man Of Steel
) and Ben Affleck's Batman in my own design. It still needs some work, but I'll get there.
In the coming weeks I might return with new artworks, I might not. But let it be known that this page is not dead
For now, I won't take any commissions, and I have been trying to find a way to issue refunds on my unfinished commissions. But for those who still hasn't recieved their commissions or their money back, lemme know if you want a refund or if you still want to continue the commission in the comment section below. Just please bear in mind that it will take some time.
I would like to thank everyone for their support and I will see you guys next time.
