Long time no update! Seriously, my last journal entry is from last year!
So I thought I might as well update and tell you how things are going, etc.
The main reason why I don't upload as extensively as I used to in the past is because I personally feel like my art is not at a point where I feel like it should be shared. I've been trying to get better over the past year, and even though I have made some improvement it's not where I would like to be. However, you may have noticed I've started an ask blog on tumblr,(My ask blog!) and what I really hope to get from it is a more assorted knowledge of photoshop and how to use it, etc. Because again, I am sadly not where I would like to be in my skill levels on that particular program. Hopefully with this I will be to the point on photoshop where I don't feel like I have to exit without saving whatever it is I'm drawing every time.
The other main reason is because of school. I am now a junior in high school, meaning I will soon have to decide on colleges and my future, and my school has already gotten me to create a portfolio (since I have decided I would like to pursue a career in art), and search for colleges near where I am. I've also been trying to volunteer since that looks good to colleges, and try to find a job to begin saving for college. Whew!That, and I'm also in many laboring classes (AP U.S History, Honors English, Drawing class, and Algebra 2! Next semester I'm also going to have to endure chemistry and I'm already have extreme anxiety about that to be honest), and they take up much of my time.
I've also gotten into new things. As much as I love the Beatles and still draw them, I've found new things that inspire me as much as they do. Hetalia, Sherlock, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Disney...they've all inspired me with my art, and even inspired me to create my own ideas and original characters. I don't know, I think I've just got this idea in my head that none of my watchers would actually enjoy my new stuff.
And lastly, DeviantArt has gotten rather confusing to me. Since I haven't uploaded in forever it took me I don't know how long to upload my most recent thing.
But! I do hope to become more active here. I've been trying to put aside some time to draw, so hopefully I will begin updating on a reasonable schedule in the near future. Keep on the lookout!
Lots of love,
