Art Goals since December 6, 2009
To improve technically and thematically.
I will comment on every single picture I add to my favorites. (From now on, because I am not going through the hundreds in my Favorites already...)

JAN 2012
Some specific aesthetic goals...
1. lighter/more graceful outlines (anime style).
2. lower color saturation. Dec 2013
3. at least one well-worked, epic, dynamic piece.
4. at least one un-sloppy, finished anime piece with unfudged background.

AUG 2012
One high-key painting, one low-key painting.

JULY 2014
Predictably, I have met none of my goals!
You have entered the :sun:Sunburst!Era, where almost every image has garish back-lighting featuring a sunburst!

:bulletred: ethereal/beautiful/softer works
:bulletred: character interactions and scenes
:bulletred: full environments with better perspective and angle

So real life is a constant state of busy-ness and I haven't been able to post or make as much new art as I'd like. But recently I've decided to try building an actual portfolio based on everything I have learned and hopefully will be learning. Unlike most people, my goal is to make my tumblr the more polished collection of rando art. =P But maybe eventually there'll be a sharper divide given how I'll be concentrating on certain looks I'm not sure will interest my current watchers. huge incentive for y'all to come follow me on tumblr, I'm sure Anyway -- please follow me and challenge me using the "ask" box, as well as critiquing/giving feedb

I don't know why you (Anonymous) would give me a 1-year subscription but thank you so much! It's very kind of you and much appreciated. Hopefully, I can make good use of it by submitting more art on dA before the year ends (and in the coming year)! (As an aside, apologies to my would-be meme collaborators... ^^;) o(TwT)o UPDATE ON THE BELOW (12/11): Thank you for your interest! All slots are filled, and those whose requests were accepted will be receiving replies shortly via dA notes. I hope to take on more, time permitting, but requests are closed for now. ====================================== I'm also open to taking a couple art requ
