Hey guys.

So I'm in my final weeks of my 5th semester of Art College. It's proving to be a lot of work. Unfortunately though, I haven't had a lot of time to focus on a variety of things. 

I want to be more active online, I really do. And I want the time to work more with my characters and developing my story Fallacy. My goal is to still have enough pages completed by late next summer so I can do weekly updates with that.

I have so many goals for the art I want to do and being active online. It's just really hard for me to do that during the semester. Then when the semester is over I feel really burnt out of my creativity. It's a vicious cycle.

I have 2 final illustration assignments (and a bunch more projects for other classes) that I hope to make awesome and push myself. I've been a bit disappointed with my school as I have not really done any work focusing around my goal as a concept artist. The way they demand work every week and on top of it, it's 5 separate assignments due every week. I'm realizing, as an artist, I need more time to do the quality work I want and that I know I can do. School is getting me into the habit of creating things each week that are things I'm not always happy with because the quality and creativity is lacking.

I understand for some jobs this is what is expected, but what is frustrating is that with my illustration major, I have to do projects that are mostly editorial. And for someone like me who has a clear goal of the art I want to do and where I want to go, creating a portfolio of work that is incomplete and lacking quality and not even relevant to what I want to do, it's quite frustrating. There is no consistency with my work right now and it's been like this for the past 3 years. 

Can't wait for winter break. It will be a breath of fresh air. I have a few projects lined up for my break. I'm going to be creating a portfolio of the most realistically rendered animals as I can possibly do. It's for an Internship/Job I'm interested in. Can't wait for that

Anyway. Hope everyone is well and enjoying the holiday season.

Hi there! :) I am happy that Fallacy has started now, it looks awesome (and the more happy I am that it seems to be about feral animals and not about anthros, or did I miss something?). But I also wanted to ask what became of that other comic of yours, "Imagine"?

Also IMAGINE I'm saving the story to adapt into an animation at some point instead ^^
