So it's been awhile since I've done a journal, almost 3 months if I remember correctly. I've been finding these journals hard to write lately and it's weird because there's a lot of stuff happening in my life right now. I guess I'm more of speaker than a writer (or typer in this case). So pretty much all I've been doing lately is ALOT and I mean ALOT of freakin drawing. Besides just my own personal work, I've been getting involved in 3 different games and an animation club project. That's not even including school work (which is awesome I might add) and me attempting to get a job (I need more money , I can't say I'm a starving artist or college student at this point but If I don't get my act together I sure will be one). Despite all this work, I've never felt so good and or focused in my life! I feel I have a clearer mind when I have a whole lot of ideas crammed in there (if that even makes a lick of sense!). So instead of just posting my all of my junk at once (which I might do eventually) here's just a very small piece of stuff I've been doing:

Again, barely even a fraction of the stuff I've been doing. Most of it's in my other computer that I need to transfer over and what not (and i'm mostly lazy when it comes to posting stuff).ANIMATION, GAME SPRITES, PIXEL ART
So at my school I'm currently taken a class called ANIMATION PRINCIPLES. After just one day in the class, I realized something about myself, something new that I hope to accomplish before I graduate. Along with getting better with Concept Art and 3d modelling I want to get better at animating! but not just regular animation stuff , more specifically, Video game sprites/models from games like street fighter, skullgirls, megaman, metal slug, etc. I love the S%$# out of those games and I dream to get on the level of animation skills/art skills as the artists who helped make those games. So starting this month, I'll be starting my studies on things like that. I'm also thinking about creating a small section somewhere on my page that links to helpful resources when it comes to both pixel art, sprite making, and frame animation. So far I've only picked up these sources from a friend:gas13.ru/v3/tutorials/sywtbapa…
(Game Sprites tutorial)www.zweifuss.ca/index.htm
(Street Fighter Third Strike references)design.tutsplus.com/tutorials/…
(Pixel Art/ Sprite Making)
If you guys have a resource that helped you out in stuff similar to this, whether it be a book, website, or app, please feel free to tell me on this journal or in a note. I'd greatly appreciate it!
LP practice (lol It's bad but it's a start)New Type of COMMISSION STYLE
So recently I've been thinking about doing a new type of commission style that involves something similar to the Point Commission thing I did a couple months back:
I was thinking for like $5 I'll draw someone's character or design one for scratch in high detail in a set up like this:
of course it's going to be in more detail, these were done pretty quickly and from the top of my head. I don't know, I'll put more thought into it when I plan on doing it, right now it's just a concept. but what do you guys think?
