To whatever few watchers of mine are still around and have either forgotten to unwatch me or are sarcastically watching me to to see how much I don't draw while still getting into shit, I'm glad to say I'm going to try returning to the art world and actually make art again. So get ready for more terrible cartoon dogs without backgrounds!!!
My return to art will hopefully be marked with some old uploads from school projects, most of which aren't actually terrible. Assuming of course that I don't fall back into "Contentment" (more on that in a bit) I'm also going to try spending less on new adoptables and spending more on commissions for my existing characters. That should at least shut up a few people until they find some other little thing to bitch about.
So Where the Hell Did I Go?
Good question. About six months ago I had a pretty major elective surgery and had 80% of my stomach removed. Why? Because I was over 240lbs. Well recovery was a bitch, and I started drinking again, thankfully this time I didn't go to rehab. The last few months have gone by in a blur, and while I did some
projects, they weren't exactly on level with the things I produced years ago and usually just dropped them before they ever got anywhere. I wasn't very confident either you see. That changed recently, I started going to the gym in earnest going five times a week and meeting with a trainer at the gym twice a week, I also actually started working on getting a degree [I changed majors too, I'm in marketing] and started sticking to my prescribed all meat diet.
And the result...
I'm 160lbs now and still losing weight!
So that was a fairly big boost in my confidence right there, and I've already started doing some kinda bullshit-ed sketches that don't look 100% terrible. While college, the gym, and recovery take up some of my time, a lot of it is spent bullshitting on the internet, so that's going to hopefully change soon. Here's hoping!
