  • Mood: Excited
Welcome to my usual end-of-the-year reminiscing journal! And, to be quite honest, probably the last journal I write here on DA. I'm sure everyone who's followed me this past year has noticed that I wasn't all, really. Sort of just in the first half of 2014 did I really post anything, and even then I only posted three pieces! I've migrated to other websites, to keep a long story short. I'll post links at the end of this journal.

But anyways, it's now the fifteenth year after the turn of the century! Whoa!! It's always exciting starting a new year for me. As typical as it is for a lot of people, I like thinking up possibilities of what I want to do for the year to come as well. I was just looking at what I wrote in my last end-of-the-year journal, about what I wanted to do...and I actually did most everything I listed! I'm proud of myself. It's like I can go back in time one year and tell myself, "Yes, yup, uh huh, yeahman, you're gonna DO THAT STUFF". Started some new LPs, made some cosplays, did more Swoobird stuff...the only things I had listed that I didn't do were convention possibilities and going through with that Kirby comic. But regardless it feels nice!~

Art was pretty interesting. I don't think I'd say it was the most successful art year I've had, but I do recognize my accomplishments and tried a ton of new things! I branched off a lot in terms of style and subject matter as well. It can only keep going up. I do want to try and not lose motivation as much as I did last year in 2015, though. That's kinda one reason I don't feel the same sense of success I had in the past this time.

This year, however, I'm gonna do just that; stay motivated. Within these first few months, for instance, I'm gonna work on a ton more Swoobird stuff, finally giving it more life beyond conceptual stages. Reason being? Scholarship opportunity my school is offering where you gotta make a game concept. I have lots of new ideas to bring to that table so it should be exciting!!

I'm also aiming to make more videos this year, like more time lapse drawings and the continuation of my Yoshi's Island LP. And hey, it's already coming to fruition because we just rebooted The Skrawlers!! Smash 4 has arrived and there's all sort of new in that series so go check it out!

I suppose that's all I gotta say! I have a good vibe about this new year, though, as super-optimistic as it is to say! Let's try to keep my newfound momentum going. If you'd like to keep following me on my adventures, I'm most active on my Tumblr , Twitter , and YouTube accounts. Hope to see you there, and may your 2015s and beyond be full of greatness!~

You're like the TheBourgyman of Kirby. I've been seeing some of your art on YouTube and it's only now that I've decided to find you on dA. Keep up the great work.
