Hey guys, Core came around again, so I’d thought I’d make another update journal. Like, what is this, the first update journal in two years? Lots has changed since then. But I'm still gonna ramble heckton here.
Onto the good (or disappointing) stuff:POKEUMANS
Remember that collab entry with waterdfg
I was talking about int eh last journal? Well, ... yeah. To put it bluntly, it got scrapped. Same fate with all of my other projects, what else is new? Think most of the problem was that the setting we chose required too much research for a fanfic done well, not exactly for shits and giggles but also not really a fully serious project either. It’s not exactly in ashes at the moment - and heck even has a chance at being revived as a one-shot. But, yeah. It’s kinda not there ATM
So what else am I working on? Kinda two things. First thing is a comic short-ish story that I’m quite excited about, and this time I’m pretty sure I’m going to get it done. (Making the protagonist a species that’s actually on my favourites list sure helps hype-wise). And writing a comic is really different from writing prose - but also more exciting in many ways. It’s been pretty hard lately deciding what I should do, and whether I want my project to be good or done more. Do I try to breeze through it, make as many mistakes as I can, and just try to get the ‘done’ status as motivation to make more and more stuff? My inner perfectionist says otherwise. Oh, what am I talking about?
As for the second project? Well...DANNIGANS
If you haven’t heard - well, TLDR - I doodled a goofball Gardevoir in the Ralts Line and Stuff Discord chat and next thing you know he’s an internet sensation. Well, not really. I wish I were internet famous. But anyways, now Dan is a thing and even has a blog for his own doodles!
(Go check it out.) And I’m probably having as much fun making Dan Doodles as other are watching him screw up about every imaginable task possible, and might want to take this further with a comedy webcomic. Well, after that short comic, anyways. If I even get that done.OTHER ARTS
As much as I want to post more gijinkas and other Pokeumans arts it's kinda in the back burner right now to the two comics listed above. ... That's kinda it, really.ADMINNING
I admit, life is getting busy (and see below) and I've thought about perhaps I'd honestly contribute more to the Pokeumans group writing and adding content than adminning. While retirement is a real option at this point, it's not going to be very soon, or at least after I get a certain initiative up for the group. In the meanwhile, I'm toning down some of my admin activity in order to focus on not just life but also said initiative. Kinda wanting to leave but with a bang. LIFE
Suddenly a lot of extracurricular stuff started happening recently (half of them program I have no fucking clue why I signed up for in the first place) and as much as I'm trying to simplify and minimise my obligations, stuff is happening. However, I do feel better about my ability to focus and make time for the stuff that really matter - creative projects. I'm not too sure whether to say I'll have less activity now or not, but I guess just leave it at 'see what happens next'
Aaaand that's about it. Bye!
