Hello, everyone. I hope you're all doing well so far as the new year has kicked off.
It's almost been a full year since I came to South Korea to teach English. I've got a week and two days left, then I'm finally going to be home. With all the stress of work and the health problems I've experienced here, I won't be sad to go back to a sense of normalcy, even if it means I'll have to start another job hunt once I return. No rest for the anxiety-ridden, I guess.
For those of you interested in why I haven't posted anything but sketches for awhile, I was working on the next page of my comic and had a few digital pieces underway, but without my tablet, the process was--in a word, glacial. It took me forever just to find enough references to help me draw my comic panels, and then I had to color them and that took me forever. Aaaaand, to top it all off, I had a bad spill over the Christmas break and ruined my ancient Macbook. Without my main computer, Photoshop, or the files I was working on, naturally I'm out of luck until I get a new computer and restore what I lost with my handy-dandy backup. Of course, I'll need to go home first, so I've been sitting on my hands when it comes to art for the past few months. Mostly I've been sketching things, practicing different angles and whatnot, but as per usual I'm pretty self conscious about most of it and don't want to post it on my DA account :T
That being said, I AM still drawing and doodling and working on art. Most of my time is spent writing, I'll admit. I started the third novel in my series for NaNoWriMo in November, and finished it just this week, so I'm really excited to get the fourth going and enjoy a new character's perspective. Once I get home and restore my tablet into working order, I'd like to draw up the protagonist of the third novel like I did the first two. To be honest, he's a bit of a challenge for me to draw, but I would like to get more than one decent sketch of him out there in the world. Then it's time for my afro goddess--*is hit in the head with a shoe* I--I mean my totally BA new protagonist who is in no ways a goddess or--*is hit with another shoe*.
Anyway, I wanted to thank you all for your kind comments and all the watches and favorites. It means a lot to me to receive feedback, both good and constructive, and I'm so happy to share my meager offerings with so many wonderful, helpful artists.
You're all the best!
