Jan: This was the only thing I doodled. Shortly after meeting the exhuberant AriiKnave
Feb - April: My wrist was completely out of sorts. Hell, I could barely cook dinner, drawing was out of the question. I squeezed out the one design and that was literally it. It was beyond frustrating.
May: Hand finally mending. This was the first full color I'd done since last year.
Jun: Commission work.
July: Sketch was from 2013, finished finally, more commission work.
Aug: Spent more time on this commission than any piece of art this year. Was in a funk.
Sep: Diana made me just finish something so that is what spurred the series of wolf adoptables. I was decently productive and by productive I mean I drew three or four things instead of one or two.
Oct: More commission work. More funk.
Nov: This whole semester I was shirking college to work on the Couvere with TornTethers
. They finally released, but I haven't gotten around to fleshing out the group yet.
Dec: Everything is coming to a close and I have at least 4 half done commissions I need to finish and turn out. Here is a peek for a design I want to sell soon.
This year was an absolute waste. I spent the first half injured and the second half uninspired. I drew next to nothing and didn't make adequate progress on my commission queue. I didn't learn much and I didn't improve much. There is some style consistency, but I'm so unhappy with my style that I'd rather be improving on other fronts. I sketched a decent amount this year, but I feel like I could have done so much more.
My ultimate goal for 2015 is to untether myself from commissions and do some personal work that will actually allow me to grow as an artist. In all honesty, though, my real life was so busy I couldn't do much art anyway, and I've been in a lot of physical pain all year. I am working hard on restructuring my life in general. Hopefully next year, I won't be stretched so thin.
Hope you guys faired better!
