So yeah, this will be split over two announcements over the next few days. I'm getting this first announcement out as I was rudely woken by my neighbours and their horrible cooking. So, I don't tend to do resolutions, I prefer targets because resolutions are more a pass/fail mentality. I'd rather look at it as a target, since things can change over the year. Also, these targets are only some of the targets that i'll be announcing. I do have extra ones that relate to my normal life. So here are my targets.
1. I aim to upload more content as I receive it. For most of this year, I've been holding off posting pics either because it's part of a sequence that i'm waiting on being finished, or I question what people will think of me posting the artwork (P.S. DA, you don't get all of the art I get, FA does). After I clear my desktop in the next week or so, you'll be getting the artwork on my page within 48 hours.
2. Back to writing.
And no, this doesn't mean I'm going back to doing the shitty prose stories I was doing way back in 2010. I am going to be getting back into script writing again. 2017 was a big sideline of a year, but in a good way. I got engaged to my girlfriend of 5 years, I finally left my job at the bank to work closer to home, I had some interesting holidays, got to go to Confuzzled for the first time and Scotiacon was typically awesome. But I now need to get back to writing, which in turn leads to target 3.
3. More Neo Robia.
As this is where the majority of my writing is used, yes, we aim to bring you new content within 2018. This will be part of the second announcement later in the week after the production team talk over the ins and outs of the plans that we are working on.
4. More Suiting Photography.
Prior to Scotiacon this year, I got myself a sweet little bridge camera that I took with me just to see how it felt photographing fursuits rather than just watching on. I really enjoyed my time and the products I got from it all. So, whenever a suiting event is happening, I will try to be there to take photographs.
5. Fursuit order.
So, last time I got a suit was Scot back in 2011. After my change of job last year, I found myself with the ability to save for the first time in 6 years. So, during this year, I will be placing an order to get myself a new fursuit. Those who know me know the character I hope to be getting made. I will admit that I don't have a suitmaker confirmed yet, as this now simply depends on their availability to have the suit made.
6. More Scot (and others)
This is kinda tied in with target 3. Since I hope to get Neo Robia going again, I will be aiming to focus more on Scot this year. I need to have more suiting art done to show that he's not missing a step slipping in to disguises. I do want to keep on going with other characters too. Katrina, Trixi, Juneau etc. are all characters I do want to let you all see more of. However, with the focus shift to him, this does mean...
7. Less Milena
Let's be fair, Ms Kazemira has had plenty of art outings. Not just for 2017, but for the last few years in general. She has been the main focus of items that I get, which now kinda feels wrong. I get that she is the main reason most of you all follow me, but if that's the only reason, that's kinda sad. Does this mean I won't be getting artwork of her at all? No. I still have three active projects involving her upcoming so she will still be seen. Plus I do know some people like to ask me if she would like to be in art with them. I don't mind people asking this.
So yes, these will be my main targets for this year. As mentioned before, there will be a second announcement over the coming days in relation to Neo Robia. So keep your eyes peeled.
