Whoa, long time no see folks. I'm sorry it's taken this long for me to return here after saying I would be back 2 weeks ago
truth is, things have been a little... crazy on my end. And I've been kinda unsure about how to settle down here again after such an absence. It feels awkward to come back again.
So this leaves me to announce that I have an original art account here at The-Verpardess
- from now on, this is where all non-fanart will be posted. Some of you already knew about this account anyways, but I thought I'd mention it here. I'll be using it to post little bits and pieces of my world building and character designs. There's nothing amazing in that account yet, just simple stuff and a few non-fanart commissions. But if you support me, my art and my own ideas, feel free to follow it ^^
I'll be keeping Lurking-Leanne
for all the fanart stuff - Crash, Ratchet, Pokémon, you name it! Although there is one new franchise that has taken hold of me, which I'll get to in a sec...
Also, Deadlocked Syndrome (aka Ace of Hearts) is officially canceled
. I'm sorry it had to come to this. I really didn't want to be added to the endless list of unfinished fancomics, but my heart just isn't in it anymore. I still love Ace, no doubt about it, but after nearly 8 years, I feel like I've done enough for my handsome alien friend. I've already written him a big story, produced hundreds of fanart, supporting Fan characters, many commissions... and even a small statue which cost me a fortune. But I have no regrets for what I've done for his character, and he'll forever be my favourite game character. No other Ratchet character matters as much as he does to me. This comic was just another story for Ace that I wanted to tell from an alternative perspective... but I didn't have the power in me at the end to finish it.
I do have the original plan on what happens in the comic and how it ends, maybe I'll release that someday... I'm not sure.
So, what's been happening all this time? Why did I drop off the face of the planet? Truth is, for the past year or two, I've been feeling artistically dead on the inside. I desperately tried to get back my fire through my determination to build up my original-verse, but it just wasn't enough. I was depressed and dead on the inside for so long. I'm still working on my world though, behind closed doors for the most part - so I haven't given up! It's just that I haven't truly been enjoying art as much as I should. I was feeling forced, and 'almost' uninspired to do anything. I just didn't enjoy art so much anymore.
But then... something happened
. Several weeks ago, I finally got that fiery artistic power back. I feel alive again. I'm drawing like crazy, I haven't felt this kind of energy in bloody years. I'm not even exaggerating. However, things wont be the same from here on out...
my interests have changed quite, drastically. So much that I don't feel comfortable posting the new art to this account. But don't worry, I haven't completely abandoned Crash, Ace, etc fanart. It just isn't my main interest anymore, but from time to time I'll post something here
Also, my website has shat itself and the gallery where ALL of my art was hosted, it gone. I'll need to build a new gallery sometime, but I honestly cant be bothered right now. I'll eventually bring it back though! And my Patreon has changed - it's now located at www.patreon.com/TheVerpardess -
if you wish to support my art (no matter what the content) then feel free to check it out ^^
And I guess that's all I need to report. In the meantime, I'll go upload a few new art pieces I've had laying around
it's nothing amazing, but it's at least a little something...
TaraM(So uhh, if any of you are Dragon Ball Super fans... let me know and I'll give you a link to my 'other' account... although you may be able to find it if you look hard enough XD)
