I took a bit of time today to update some things on here -- mostly graphical tweaks. I changed around some stamps, added some sprucing up things to my journal entry and the general layout of my main page. I'm going to scan the sketches I did of Ibis, as well as work on some things today that will all be uploaded later on in the day.
I've decided to switch over from Livestream to Picarto - Since Picarto is specifically designed for art streaming, I think it's a better choice. So, props to Slugbox
, because it was through his streaming that I found the site at all. I've updated the streaming graphic accordingly, but didn't notify those of you who've fav'd it. I'll only do that when it's updated to online status. Please note that my picarto channel is set to "adult" which means there may be nudity, language, and the like, so it's probably going to be considered NSFW for the most part.
I'm going to really make an effort to draw and/or stream some art stuff every day. I'll also attempt to put up more speed paint videos and such over on my youtube channel on a somewhat regular basis. I'm sure I'll have plenty of videos that I can work on to slap up over there, I'm just going to have to sort out what times I'm going to do video editing. I'm hoping that by forcing myself to draw every day, I'll get into the habit again. I've really been slacking off with art stuff, and I know that's the reason that I continually get annoyed and displeased with how my artwork is going - I'm not doing it nearly enough!
I was recently linked, by my friend mike, a tumblr post
that stated they were taking submissions for comics. Admittedly, I've thought about it before. Considering how difficult it is for me to be happy with my style and how things have gone with me attempting to draw comics, I don't know if this is the best idea. I'm not 100% sure if it's a paying thing or not (I think it may be), so it could possibly count as paid experience. There's no guarantee that I'll even get accepted if I do submit anything, but it may be worthwhile to at least give it a shot. I spoke to Jon about it, and he thought it would be a good idea, and that I should go for it. So, we'll see how that goes. He gave me a pretty good idea for what I could do for my submission, so I'll be working on that off and on. It's not something that I'll probably be able to post over here on da, but sketches and the like will probably end up over on my art tumblr, if you're interested in that sort of thing. There will probably be postings of character concepts and the like up here that are safe to post up on da.
Commissions! I've opened up commissions because I'd like to earn a little extra money this summer. I'll be putting up a standard commission info graphic sometime before the end of the weekend - if you'd like some information now, feel free to send me a note here, or an e-mail (you can use the little mail icon at the top of my journal).
That's just about everything I can think of right now, but if something else comes to mind I'll tack it on later to this entry or a future entry.
And now, lunch time!
