Art Summary 2015 by 0tacoon Art Summary 2015 by 0tacoon
Jan - Started out the year hardcore, I drew two good friends of mine's characters for their birthdays (they are a day apart, wowza!) I really worked hard on the effects for them and I'm still proud of them~ This preview features inside-under 's Alias! 

Feb - The start of my #DailyDrawFebrurary! Also the start of when old Pyre died and RAVEE was born in his stead! hehe

Mar - There was a very simple doodle I did during this time where I wanted to try some fire/smoke effects—it became quite popular for being a silly little thing. Still love the effect tho~

Apr - I was busy with a lot of smaller projects and WoD comics or pics~ Seattle was really picking up and I had gotten a lot better at doing some of those quick comics. : >

May - A quick illustration while testing out Ravee's glass powers, became this very moody cave image that I liked, very quickly done and I don't think its that pretty but—the notes tell me different.

Jun - Not much for June, was getting prepped for my trips in July and I had started summer courses, but Mad Max: Fury Road came out and FURIOSA IS JUST AMAZING I HAD TO DRAW HER OK??

Jul - I drew a picture of my friend, CloudyKasumi 's, character: Derowen! I just really love her and the backstory/world Brenna has created. I can't wait to see more of her in the future and where she is going to go~

Aug - This came out towards the end of the month, lots of things were ending during then. Summer courses, WoD Seattle, and my friend kingsolaron was leaving. It was a crazy ride of a summer and one I soon won't forget.

Sep - I drew a couple of images titled "Don't you ever just...?" and it was just based on scenes of the sky and the beauty of them. They are simple and quick but I wanted to capture the colors and beauty I see on those long drives to and from work. I love clouds and skies.

Oct - Fyrearm, my webcomic, officially released on October 23rd. It was a great time and I sent out this teaser earlier in the month. I was excited to finally get my story started and its still going! Whoo! I had worked hard the previous months in order to get chapter 00 done and buffered up, it was nice to see my hard work pay off.

Nov - I think from after WoD ended, I slowly stopped drawing illustrations as much, plus I was busy with other commitments and comics, especially since AATR had started up. But I told myself I'd draw something for Mass Effect (N7) Day! I always wanted to and I took the chance! I still love the lighting in this one~

Dec - I still haven't drawn much for myself, comics for different projects and this holiday Art Exchange (featured here) on twitter took up most of my time. I turned out a lot of work in just the past few months, but a lot of it was behind the scenes. I also realized because of this, I had a lot of stress. I took on too many projects and felt too drained to work on my own stuff.

So as of now, I am not going to be taking on more a project a month that isn't related to Fyrearm or my own stuff, none at all if I can help it. I want to just work on my comic and make pretty pictures again. Be more frequent in my uploads. So lets up I can stick to that, fingers crossed.

Let's go into 2016 with a passion like fire and make some amazing art! No more burn outs!

Those images that you made around September were the most poignant (in my eyes)... They showed a certain emotional depth despite their simplicity and were just very effective, emotive pieces in general. :)

Oho, you mean the "Do you ever just...?" series I started. Skies have that effect on people and its what I wanted to get across! Just looking up at the clouds and different shades of sky can give a person a wide variety of emotions and can make one's self quite ponderous.

But on another note, you've been really busy bro. I'll be honest I love this, seeing a journey play out through your art and looking backon it...GOD I really want to do something like this. The motivation is real Lake Bro, thanks for the extra dose!
