It’s a new start to a new year and I have a mind-set that’s fresh and clear. I’m already feeling positive vibes from 2017 and I’m well underway with my goals for this year.
Socialising and Going Out
A lot has happened throughout my life. I always struggle with crowds but things are becoming easier overtime, especially with my new mind-set. I’ve accepted my weaknesses and limitations now but I persevere when I need to, both for myself and for everyone else. Despite my anxiety going out I do feel that I’m actually a people’s person and I often find myself putting everyone’s feelings ahead of my own.
I will try to go out more but only under the right circumstances. It’s all about dealing with each moment when it’s presented to me rather than analyse possible future events.
For years I’ve been writing and making amendments for my children’s story and right now its under-going another editing process. I’ve completed the first book a good number of times but it was never quite ready to be published. As a result I’ve often lost motivation and lacked ideas to change. However, this is definitely the most successful editing process I’ve ever done for this story.
I’ve polished my writing style and grammar-correcting a lot and I have to thank reading different manga and light novels for that. The only materials I can read are manga and light novels but it really does go to show that no matter what genre you read, reading makes you grow as a writer.
I’ve changed my attitude and approach to my anime art and decided to take extra time to complete each art successfully. Last year I did get in the unfortunate habit of putting a time limit on each picture. Now I have the philosophy of illustrating at my own pace which goes hand in hand with my new mind-set for this year. You could say it’s a new beginning with a better approach and from now on I will emphasize quality over quantity.
My Current Works in Progress
-Requests (I’m undertaking around 10 requests and nearly completed 1)
-New Game! (This is a comic style landscape that features Aoba and Hifumi)
-Gaia: Mother Goddess (a more refined version of my own character, Gaia the Elf Goddess)
-Darkness (a single portrait of the masochist knight that could feature a few versions in different clothes)
-Valentine’s Day picture (to be revealed)
-Ai-Chan (going to attempt to shade Ai-Chan in the blue chrome shading style and see how I get on)
-Keijo x One Punch Man Comic (a crossover comic that is set in the One Punch Man universe but stars Nozomi and Non from Keijo)
I’m enjoying all these drawings right now and I can’t wait to see how they turn out in the end. 2017 will be a great year. =)
Thanks for reading. =)
