Summer time~

*discreetly brushes away cobwebs* Hi ^^
How is everyone? Thank you for the kind comments in the previous post ^^
I’m still not much better but I’m going to try and get back into the swing of things :) I wanted to do another 30 days challenge this year but I want to try and concentrate on getting myself better again and art wise just do some general exercises to improve my art, especially my illustrations, so that won’t put any pressure on me to have a post a day ^^
I’m going to do some memes like the draw this again memes to see improvements, there’s a colour wheel meme thing going around and I want to try and be able to complete it by the end of the summer (I have a lot of the colours missing ^^;), and there are some other general ones like a face shape challenge and some exercise from Conceptcookie and I’m going to do some studies too and other stuff ^^ There’s a lot there and I’ll try not to make myself worse but I’m pretty sure I’m a glutton for punishment XD
I’m also looking for art based events and contests to join in, because I had so much fun in the round robin comic and one held by MangaKid. There are some contests I’m going to join but I’ve not seen any around yet, have you guys any in mind?
Commission will soon be re-opened with up-dated prices and I’ve opened a redbubble and added work to it and society6 and that here they are Society6 and Redbubble
I hope to productive and post more, I don’t know when I start uni for sure but I’m sure it’s not until mid-September at least ^^;

Also have you guys heard that Paint Tool Sai is getting and update? It’s in beta mode, has some bugs and hasn’t been translated yet but the updates look really useful. It will have a text layer!!! :D and you can have the update for free if you have a fully licenced version already!! :D Here’s a link to read for yourselves ^^

I hope you guys are having a nice summer/time :D

Kinda Alive

Hi ^^;
Just a journal to apologise for the sporadic posts/lack of updates recently, the reason is that I haven't been very well since about November, and I have been drawing it's just that they've just been sketches mostly and the few full illustrations I've drawn, I haven't had it in me to type up the things that go with them, but I'm going to try and get to it soon as I can.

I'm also in the middle of revamping worlds/proffie/tumblrs and add more work to Society6 and I think I might start a red bubbble instead of a zazzle, it has less things available but the shipping is a lot cheaper (so fairer on people) and seems easier to use.

Again I'm very sorry and I hope you guys are well :)
