Since it's been a few months since my last journal entry, I thought I keep you guys up to date.
First off, things are steadily looking a little better art wise & writing wise. Still hard at work on my two projects I hope to get off the ground sometime this year. So far I'm currently starting an outline for chapter 2 of my webcomic and will be writing a rough draft for chapter 1. Struggling a fair bit, but if I keep at it and not become overwhelmed, it should be completed soon.
Art wise, I've been keeping to my promise to draw daily in my sketchbook, and for the most part, it's working. It's always been a great shame of mine that I've only been drawing whenever I felt like it, and kept procrastinating every time I promised I would doodle something, anything. Aside from a few days, I'm doing a good job at keeping to my own word and that includes concept designs for my webcomic chapters and redesigns of old ones I've had for years. In addition, I do have plans for serious illustration and design work as well, mostly for portfolio reasons. Some of my current pieces are sadly a bit outdated and want to show off something new for potential employers and school applications. That's one of my major goals this year I've been working towards. That and updating my main art website and starting one exclusively for my current & future projects.
On top of everything else, I also want to start on a few crafts related projects I've been planning and drafting since last year. Plus I still have some already finished projects I've been meaning to post since year. I will be doing so soon, but right now, my focus is on mainly drawing.
I'm still open for commissions as well. If you are interested, feel free to check out my newly updated commissions guide below and either email me at melanee.wood[at]gmail[dot]com or send me a note.
Long story short, been keeping myself busy and have some hopes for things to work out for me soon. Finally, if you are interested in following me through places other than deviantArt, check out the following links to a few of my frequent accounts:Twitter @ RaynesGemTumblr @ raynedraws
