I feel like giving you all a heads up on what to expect for the next few month since I soon will have semester break and actually, I am feeling quite unstoppable when it comes to art! I finally am able to work on both my skills and my style and its quite refreshing after all those month / years. I am planning on making a small 'cinematic', you will see!
BIG MOTHERFRIKKIN RAFFLE, YO!
First of all, I am close to 100 watchers
already! To celebrate this, I will hold a raffle! I will use random number generator to pick 2 [two] winners. The first winner will get a small illustration
, the second one an icon
[please note, that for both, I highly prefer feral / furry characters. No humans for this round please!] The first kiriban will be propably around 10.000 PV
but lets see. First, lets focus on 100 watcher.Current trades and commissions!
My current to-do list can be found here
, my flightrising to-do list here
. I will accept new trades / commissions once I am done with those. Since I am away for the upcoming week and I don't exactly know if I will be able to get my graphictablet to work on my laptop [my wacom is a bitch at times >:/], I am not sure how fast I will complete anything during that time. I will be able to do lots of traditional work tho, which is quite the nice exchange as I am a bit tired at times of digital artworks only due to university.
Animations and youtube!
Due to this semesters classes, I found my love for animation. I will work on my skills regarding After Effects, gif animations and other stuff once I have alot more time to breath- I learn horribly under university pressure. I also want to become more active on my youtube channel again [pssst, its here
in case you didn't know!], but due to my very old PC which makes it hard to edit and cut videos via Movie Maker [yes, my PC can't handle Windows Movie Maker properly, so you know its getting SERIOUS
] I became rather silent. Since I was somewhat forced to buy the CC membership last year, I thought- hey why not make animated speedpaints? I am quite inspired by Hotdiggedydemons speedarts, so lets see! Its 20 Euro and I am a poor student so I wanna get the most out of it after all >:U Plus I can use my laptop which is for university art only, fuck it, at least it can handle that mess of a program!
Upcoming personal works!
Okay this is quite a big thing for me. Looking through my folders from 2015 to 2017, I noticed a sad trend- I had tons of good ideas, but I never really went through with anything properly so many works stayed as rather messy sketches. So I picked up the good files [so glad I started to safe them all, I literally have no works from my former years back then unless friends saved it for me...] and I will rework them, combining them with the skills and new found productivity I have now! We are just one month into 2018 barely and I have more than 30 older files ALONE that want to be finished! Be prepared for a flood of work you might remember from very old sketchdumps / WIP dumps- but polished and all new!
My graphic novel!
This is a big one guys. As I am close to my bachelors thesis, I will work on the script and the sketches for my upcoming graphic novel which might or might not be published later on [if not, I might start a webcomic but lets see as this is quite a step, not sure if I can handle this!] I really can't wait to show you the product once its finished, its a big dream of mine to be able to produce comics / graphic novels as I am a storyteller at heart! The story will evolve around Laika and Silber, two reckless misfits who are tired of their old lifes. So what do they do? Getting themselves into quite a few problems just so they might start a better one! It started as a simple scavenging mission, but ends in something much more... Its sci-fi / fantasy, so if its your jam you are very welcome to follow their rather weird journey through the galaxy!
Patreon + Etsy / Tictail!
I might not be able to create a patreon this year because its a very big responsebility towards my [potential] patreons as I am not a big fan of letting patreons wait / giving out rewards that are not up to my standart due to pressure. BUT it is planned once I have finished my bachelors degree / design deploma next year in february so I would be happy, if someone would like to be my patreon [with rewards worth the support]! Once I have established myself, I will also either open a tictail- store or an etsy [or maybe both WHO KNOWS] to sell some merch and goodies. Currently I am in the phase of planning, collecting ideas for possible goodies, materials etc. Planned are large vinyl stickers, charms, necklaces, posters
and maybe even T-shirts
. I am also thinking about tasteful furry gear and small crafted thingies such as figurines. But thats far in the future. I will focus more on the now :3I think that might be it for now!
So yeah, this are my plans and things you might look forward to
Hopefully, I will be able to achieve my plans. I will work hard on this!
