Seriously I'm gone for seven days and then DA changed everything!! WTF? Either way this new layout will take some getting used too. Tell me what you think about it in the comments if you want~
So, those 2 artworks I was trying to finish so I could upload my entire pile of artworks that need to be shared, ended up turning into 10 more artworks. I'll explain briefly~ I managed to get into contact with Dawn Merrin from Wizards of the Coast gaming based in Seattle. My old teacher said she could see my artwork being big one day and she introduced me to Dawn Merrin, and overall I think that's very flattering but at the same time doubtful. I don't like getting my hopes up because then I set myself up for failure. Anyway, I understand that Wizards of the Coast gaming doesn't deal with anime artists and they deal more in realism, fantasy stuff you would see on RGP online games. (They blantantly told me so and just assumed I was like every other artist...........
) She wouldn't mind seeing my work, if I didn't work in anime. Naturally I'm a bit urked that I would just get a label slapped on me and passed along even though my style is semi-realism, but my stubborness demands me to prove the company wrong. I work in many many other art styles and mediums and I like trying new things out, but because they don't know me, I understand they would just make a biased judgement, but all the same..........doesn't change how I felt. So I was just making a few adaptations to my semi-realism style to get more of a realism style that they would like, and then later I need to make a portfolio and show it to them. I'm not holding my breath seeing as how I've already been judged so it feels as if whatever I do will be futile, but right now I added on 10 more artworks based on realism style because of the principle.
Also I'm not giving up my semi-realism style that I use now nor am I gonna stop drawing manga/anime. Took me a good 12 years to try and get my style down and I'm not gonna give it up. So instead I'm making slight adaptations to my current style so that way I can easily switch between semi-realism anime and realism fantasy gaming art styles.
So that's why I didn't upload lately.
On to better news, I did manage to get a job~ It's part time at the Copy and Print center in Staples and so I've only had to work 18-22 hours per week, which still leaves me plenty of time to sit down and do artwork. It's been a busy 7 days since I was last on DA, and so much has already happened
Needless to say I have a lot of catching up to do, so I'll be getting to that~ Feel free to tell me in the comments how the past 7 days have affected you guys in what ways! I'd like to hear anyone else's stories
