Hello everyone ,
It’s an important note (at least for me) and I would like you to take a little time reading it if you really appreciate my gallery. It’s the last time I will talk about this but it needs to be done in order to close the door to 2014.
We will soon reach 2015 and almost 2014 is behind us… I would like to wish you all the best for 2015. I really wish everything will go on the way you expect as much as I wish this new year won’t be the evil twin of 2014 for me.
As some of my watchers know, 2014 was not a great year for me. The start was not that bad actually and it was full of hopes but it radically moved to Hell from March. The ground litterally fell under my feet.
I’m not really gonna annoy you all with the details but it’s probably one of my worst year until now. What a change between the end of 2013 and this one!
I want to let 2014 behind me but it will probably stay forever on a personal plan and it will also have some consequences for my drawings…
Not the best thing to say but the consequences of all that is that I’m really out of money. After struggling for survive, I end 2014 as poor as I have never been. To make it simple if an other ill-fated event happens ,we would be completely fucked.
About my drawings and « style », it’s quite possible that there will be some changes for 2015… I recently checked my stock of drawing tools and it’s not that good…
Fortunately, I made a stock of markers, watercolors and all during good days but this stock is only decreasing now.
I’m in the actual state that some of my main colors are already out and I am not able to use them anymore… (most of my yellows, some of my blue and red are already dead and I don’t have the funds to buy new ones).
I still have a decent amount of markers to make the skin tones but that’s not enough to make a full drawing with those colors…
I came to the conlusion that I have to adapt to my current situation (adapt or die)… I have to save my remaining colors to make them last a little bit longer.
I think I’m gonna adopt something closer to the « flat colors » design. Instead of using 2 or 3 different colors for the skin, I will try to reduce it to 1. And it would probably be the same for hairs and clothes.
I don’t know how it will look like yet, but I already kind of started in my latest works. Who knows ? a full « flat colors » drawing may be strange at the beginning but maybe I can work a bit more on the linework instead.
2015 should be surprising (in a good way I hope). I’m not sure about it but I will try my best to keep drawing and share with you.
I have some projects for 2015 too. Not sure if I will have time and strenght to make them yet but for sure I keep them somewhere in my mind and would love to share them with you all.
For January, I will submit some « old » works (by old, I mean 2 or 3 months ago works), the new ones may come by the beginning of february.
I also definitely decided to stop submitting my works to many clubs… It’s a bit sad but I feel like DA is getting really competitive and sometimes most of people don’t really pay attention to what is submitted. We just push the fave button and jump to the next deviation.
I want to focus now to the ones who really like my works and also those who comment on them. I hope we will interact more and feel free to give your opinion, advices or ideas in a deviation. Just take the time to look at what I submit. I will always try my best to answer.
Of course it may end in the way that only a few of you will look at them, but well, it’s a risk I take (and it already started somehow… My deviations only get twice less views as the ones I submitted one year ago for comparison) and I’m sure you will enjoy it even more. For sure it may sounds strange because usually you start little and your gallery grow bigger and more people watch you and I’m going the opposite way but whatever… Hope itwill be an evil for a greater good. Lol Cheer me up guys !
To finish, I would like to thank you all for your support and help ! It was and it always will be my greatest fuel !
2015 may be a hard year but for now, it’s full of hopes and I really wish to meet you on my next deviations !
Take care and have a great 2015 !
