Re Cleaning: Working on sorting, backing up, clearing up my profile page, gallery, inbox, folders, etc. No worries, not deleting any art, just moving old stuff to scraps. Maybe will take the time to do a css or finally get an updated icon.

But hey! How's that New Year coming along?
Yeah yeah, I'm getting to it a month late, but I needed to see if I could actually make it a month in as I intended before I could celebrate it.

And I have. I've finished 8 full digital pieces, a few sketches and misc, and filled /120/ pages in my 9x12 sketchbook. My goal was to fill it, but it takes awhile and 300 pages was unrealistic for my first month, considering I've never filled a sketchbook (even if you took all my traditional doodles and put them together for the past three years.) I'll content myself with the progress I've made and keep learning.

My life plans have changed a lot. I won't be finishing my college degree, as I didn't like or want the specific career it was training me for. I am studying a lot of things on my own which is demanding of my time and my mental faculties, but I'm doing alright! I feel confident in the direction I'm going -- and art has become my number one again, after three years put on the back burner while I was chasing a college sham.

I'm doing a bit better financially this year since we have an operable car and that makes all the difference, but my roomate bailed on us owing close to $2K last summer, and my partner lost their job, so you know, we do what we have to to get by. I wouldn't say I'm struggling anymore. I just get myself into pinches where I need gas money or stuff like that, because we haven't been able to generate an emergency fund yet.

My health is trending upward. I've injured my back and am still waiting to get it checked out, but it doesnt stop me from drawing, it just hurts, so I deal. My wrist is largely recovered. I am mentally sound. I'm establishing more routine for myself, taking better care of my space, and balancing my duties much better. I'm very adaptable and no two days are the same, but the effort put into being more orderly has been paying off.

You all don't know me real well or what I've been through or how I've changed, but I know I've grown up a lot. And learned even more. Baby steps. But at least I'm not standing still anymore.

Art update coming separately soon.
Indigo - AUCTION by Sheylu
Indigo - AUCTION
Classic shey-style design, with a little twist! The attire is egyptian inspired but you are welcome to interpret it however. Last char with this body type I'll be selling for a long time. I'd like to branch out a little.

Here is the version without attire to see all her markings clearly.

The Wild Winds Around You by Sheylu
The Wild Winds Around You
Commission for CloverCoin of her delightful griffin, Jezrey!

This was an experiment to see if I could make a lineart without a neat undersketch, I only worked over my gesture ( gyazo.com/08ff4ff5acb6367b54ca… ) and it was fun and I'll practice it more in the future. I feel this is a little less stiff than my other stuff?? SHRUGS art is always an uphill battle

Thanks again!

And I cannot stop listening to Icarus - Bastille.

Last Song by Sheylu
Last Song
Commission for Last-Song at FA, who asked for a somewhat natural maned wolf design!

The lineart is over a year old, but I finally mustered the courage to color it tonight. Thank you for your patience!! Q^Q

I'm quite fond of him *v*
