A lot of time has passed since I've been quite active on DeviantArt, and a lot has changed as well. I recently decided to return to DeviantArt and to draw on a more regular basis. I will be doing a few things different from now on however:
-I will not be drawing manga any more
After years of drawing manga almost exclusively I just thought it was time to move on to other styles. The amount of progress that I made during my manga drawing years was also very small in my opinion.
-Colour will be more standard
Most of my art that I made in the last year was only black and white, I want to implement more colour in my art in the future, to create more immersion and realism. Note that this is my first tame actually making coloured art in such a large scale, so please forgive my noob mistakes.
-More original work, less fan-art
In the end it is a lot of fun to draw fan-art, but personally I enjoy it way more if a piece is actually originally designed by myself. Maybe my art will look worse if I don't work from an exact reference, but I really want to focus on my own characters and stories. Maybe a full story will evolve eventually, not only do I draw on a daily basis, I've been taking story-writing lessons at school as well.
-More experimental sucky art
After struggling with school I finally started to draw more often, this means I create more art, but not all of those drawings are good enough for my DeviantArt in my opinion. So I will not be uploading every drawing that I make, but sometimes I will combine some drawings and put them in the same artwork in order to avoid spamming peoples DeviantWatch. So the main upload format from this point will be either big and somewhat detailed pieces that took a lot of effort to make or complications of smaller doodle like drawings of knights or superheroes for instance.
These are basically the things you can expect from me from now on. I can't promise I will be uploading on a more regular base forever, but I will be trying to draw a lot more than I did in the past year. I regret some decisions I made back then and I have not been improving my drawing skills one bit. But I hope that some of these changes will help in the future.
