So, yeah, 2018 is going to just go into the bin, it was a total shit-show and we'll just pretend it never happened and--OH LOOK A NEW YEAR!!!

Hello everyone and a Happy 2019!!!  Even though I missed the whole month of january here!  WooOOO! I Suck!! :P

Made a bunch of New Years Resolutions, a lot art related, one of which was to actually not fail at returning to deviantART on a regular basis.  Threatened it for years, never followed through due to said fail.  Can this year be different?  I... don't know?  But gott-dammit I'm gonna try! :D

Transformers: Ignition was supposed to have been returned to by now, but the latter half of 2018 I ended up having to tend to personal issues that took precedence so that had to go on the backburner, my apologies, but that's now back on the table for 2019.  Going to just get character designs done to post of characters I hadn't designed yet and work from there, no rushing :D

Also lots of of other art is in the plan.  I'm going to focus on posting just finished pieces here, hoping to post a lot of work-in-progress stuff on other social media places, probably Twitter.  I want to get back on my social media game (because I suck at it) so now's the time.

Which reminds me, if you use any other art/social media type places, here is a list of where else I am located, please come and join me! :D

SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS OMG:
Twitter - (very very active here with random stuff and talking, almost purely Transformers)
Tumblr
Instagram
Facebook - (very out of date, returning to it soon)
ArtStation - (Nothing here yet, but adding soon, please bookmark!)

(Question: did Vero ever become a thing?  Any other social media places that I should be aware of specifically for art/fan art?)


Also, going to attempt live-streaming of art stuff this year, got it all set up, tested once or twice, definitely have to try again
Twitch

(I also have a Picarto account, should I stream there as well too? I know Twitch is the big one, but I know there's people that use Picarto as well)


So yeah, anyways, talk to you all soon, better (more frequent?) journal entries to come!! I hope you've all been well and I hope you all have a fantastic, creative 2019!! :D :D :D

understandable that life comes and changes things.  i tend to be patient about this stuff so take your time.  better to be feeling good about your work than be stressed about it

Yeah, that's pretty much why the fancomic went on hiatus, I got myself all overwhelmed and stressed and then fell behind and, well, here we are, lol

Did anyone have a good 2018? Our company and the place my dad works for almost went under, both sisters lost their jobs, one got divorced, finances are all over the place, several friends went through job losses and divorces as well... we need a do-over.

Yeah, it sounds like everyone's 2018 was just a shambles, Murphy's Law writ large, a lot of my friends and family members as well its just been the worst things possible happening.

Yeah, lets just cast 2018 into the fire where it belongs!

I'm behind with a lot of stuff somehow :XD: ... half of February is over again already... ugh.
I have the feeling that the older one gets the faster time passes. :XD:
Good luck with everything for 2019 then! ;)
