Happy New Year everybody!
We're leaving that horrible year that was 2020 behind to a hopefully not worse 2021. If you got the time, please read my message for 2021 here on my journal, thank you.
2020 is coming to an end, and I'd like to reflect back on it.
It's obviously been a rough year to everyone, including myself, while I finally moved to my own apartment, I thought it'd give me more freedom and let me be able to focus more on my projects, but instead I got lazy and complacent.
My personal problems I had before the pandemic, especially finding a job, are still here, and the pandemic didn't help me with my mental health or anyting else really, I didn't concretised any of my ideas in the slightest, and I don't even know what to do or where to go from there, from trying out livestreaming to work on my webcomic projects, to make some new videos and figure out a new format.
My biggest accomplishment this year was rebranding my YouTube channel, which wasn't an easy decision to make, let alone execute, and aside from reuploading my older 2D cartoons and my music, and making only a handful new drawings, I actually didn't do much.
I'm not really in the mood to celebrate the New Year, COVID-19 and every real-life problems obviously won't magically disappear with 2021 coming, and I know only I can bring myself to do the things I want to do, but with this overall situation pretty pessimistic and the lack of feedback to my few works I've put out there, preventing me from growing, it's extremely discouraging, so I don't know how long it's gonna take to become motivated again.
I have no special expectations for 2021 and I won't make any empty promises, I don't want to be disappointed and to disappoint, I just hope 2021 will give me the kick in the ass I need.
I'm really sorry for the moody tone, but I needed to unpack what I had on my heart with all of you.
Now with all that said, thanks for your continued support, and Happy New Year 2021!
You know, the reason I haven't drawn anything in months is less because I'm not motivated and more because I want to redo some of my OCs, flesh them out a little more, more specifically giving them new names, like Jenny and Jessie Sunn for instance, I've originally designed them as caucasians but decided to turn them asian at some point and now I want to give them Japanese names.
I've been looking up for new names but can't make up my mind, and I also don't know how to handle the change. I've also already commissioned some of my OCs so it'd be a hurdle to ask the artists to rename their artworks...
