Most posts will probably pertain to updates on my personal account. This could include new art, rewards, polls, and more. Rewards can be downloaded. However, some digital rewards will also be available in the shop. Many of these may link to it.
I will also look at my experiences with the platform. This could accumulate into some lessons learned or best practices. I’ve found that keeping a consistent schedule is key. Some visitors also want to see the steps to a finished product.
Some of older posts may only mention Patreon. I will try to transition these out.
A lot has been going on including more job hunting and a possible move next month.
Right as of now I’m focusing my efforts on the long put-off work for Comics vs Art II. I got Normal Rockwell’s Soda Jerk. For my rendition I was hoping to make a goofy scene with some of the Nox characters.
When I can get back to my regularly scheduled programming animation practice, more pin-ups and illustrations, and the self-referential webcomic are back on! I have been working on more drawings and sketches for my queue. I plan on using Twitch.
The last big announcement is that prints of some of my new work are coming!!! They will be available on my Storenvy and a new Tictail store. I also made a new product of just the bookmarks to make the shipping fairer.
Soon holographic paper (on select prints), 3D anaglyphic (on select prints), edits, and other sized will become available!
I think I may have rushed this, or it’s good it took me so little time. This spontaneous sketch has become what the next images will show.
I should really take more progress/process shots…
Ta-da! A cell shaded work! This almost looks like it belongs in Maison Ikkoku or Bubblegum Crisis or something. xD I was thinking of hanging on to the line art for whenever I get to this girl’s story in the whatever-I-feel-like sequel to SWMaC!
You can check out a new sketch on my deviantArt or my patreon page! If you are a patron of at least $5 a month the clean line art will be available for practice.
I’m also doing studies for a commission. I want to take my time on it since it is for a close friend of the family. I’m going to dig around for some larger paper tomorrow for the final drawing. It will be colored digitally.
Ohayocon is in a matter of weeks and I’m getting excited. Still a lot to prepare for but I’m sure I’ll be done in time. Something that got started this year I appreciate is a map of the artists!
I’ll have my usual post-con sale on my store. I’ve also recently created a Patreon page. I’m seeking monthly support so I can work towards supporting myself fully on my artwork. It works kind of like a subscription or an ongoing kickstarter. Patronage comes with rewards like first looks, access to WIPs or FAQs, and free postcards, prints, or posters.
Aside from Ohayocon I’m working on finding some employment. I had an internship interview yesterday and I’m talking with a recruiter tomorrow about a temporary graphic design contract. I’ve been doing a lot more applying i hopes I start 2015 employed.
I’ll close this here. I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday and will have a Happy New Year!
