My goal for the year is to do at least one good quality, print worthy art piece each month.  More would be awesome, but at least one a month is more than I've managed in the past.  The main thing is that this means that I'll be working on full compositions that have backgrounds and everything.  Something that my art has been lacking for a long time now because I'm lazy and lack confidence.

But this year I am working on that.  I've already made some leaps and bounds in other areas (see next paragraph).  For this month, the Cammy commission will be counted as my one piece.  Although I have another one in the works that I may yet get finished before the end of the month.  Depends on how well my other commissions progress in the meantime.  Either way, I promise more art, just like I said in my previous journal!

One thing that I have been doing for a while now (35 days at this point) is that each day I have drawn a Chibi.  This was started as a determination of "I'm going to stop sucking at drawing Chibis" but within the first few days I managed to find my style and I no longer felt that I was unable to draw them.  I've continued the project, however, with more success on some days than others in regards to how well the Chibi turns out.  I have plans for many of them, to be inked and colored and turned into stickers and possibly in the future even those acrylic charms that I love seeing from other artists.  Already, though this new found love of drawing Chibis has even given me a new product that I can offer at conventions-- 3.5"x5" Chibi card commissions.

And yes, I do hope to start posting batches of these daily Chibi sketches (and probably the colored ones as well).  Right now I've already got 35 of them done, so I'll probably go ahead and prep a few different batches to post all at once to get caught up and then post them as they are completed in the future.

All in all, I've been feeling a lot better about my work this year so far, and I really hope that it continues to progress.  I hope to continue to grow as an artist and I hope that you will all continue to support and cheer me on as I do!

COMM - Cammy and some Penguins by BardicKitty
COMM - Cammy and some Penguins
This was a commission for a friend of mine who absolutely loves Cammy from the Street Fighter games.  He also loves penguins, so there are penguins.  Also, he wanted to be in the image, so there he is in a penguin suit, trying to get Cammy to notice and love him.  ^_^()  This is one of the sillier pieces I have ever done, but frankly it was super fun and he loved the way that it turned out.  I'm pretty pleased with it myself.

Plus, those are his two favorite types of penguin.  Rockhopper and Blackfooted.

Cammy belongs to Capcom and such, very much not to myself.  No claims here at all.

I realize that I tend to be away more often than not.  However, this time I have more of an excuse than usual.  I've had some health problems for a while now, which have ended with me getting my gallbladder removed earlier this week.  Hopefully, this will have fixed the problems I've been having which have kept me from feeling up to doing much of anything.  

There are new drawings in progress, including new commissions and several ideas that I am hoping to put together as possible prints for future conventions.  This time, I really am serious about doing more artwork more regularly.  That from now on, I'll be getting things done rather than letting them sit around forever.  Even in my unwell state, I've already done more the past few months in regards to sketches and planning than I had a long time before that.

So expect to see more from me in the future!

COMM - Cassie the human Oracle by BardicKitty
COMM - Cassie the human Oracle
The second of two commissions for :iconlioneyed:, of her Pathfinder characters.  This one has been done for a while, but due to other things going on in my life I hadn't gotten around to uploading.  Cassie here is a human who was raised by Drow (Eberron setting Drow, so not quite what most people envision when they think of Drow).  She's a Life Oracle with the fogged vision curse.

And yes, her look was intentionally inspired by Daenerys. Or rather, she'd had an idea of a look in mind and then found a picture of said character and realized she looked almost exactly like what had been in her head.

Pathfinder and such belongs to Paizo.
Eberron belongs to.. WoTC I believe?

COMM - Alana the Halfelf Bard by BardicKitty
COMM - Alana the Halfelf Bard
This is one of two commissions for :iconlioneyed:, of her two Pathfinder characters.  This is Alana, a halfelf bard.  She's using one of the archetypes, though I can't remember off hand which one it is. ^_^()  She's a historian/archaeologist type character who is all about knowledge of all types.

Thank you very much. ^_^ I've been on DeviantArt for a while, but I've only recently started to look at groups and what they have to offer.  Admittedly, I'm usually never sure what to do with them. XD  But hopefully I'll see lots of great art from fellow artists/fans and make some new friends and maybe even get inspiration while I'm at it!

And yay glitter!!  *throws some as well*
