[DISCLAIMER: This is just a reminder to myself of what I intend to do this year... so long as my work schedule stays light and my spirits stay bright.]

Now then...

I AM CRAZY EXCITED!  I don't really know why yet, but I think it mostly has something to do with the fact that I feel a change in the air with regards to how i'm approaching my art.
After months of working on projects with GunshipRevolution, where I've had to force myself to paint (under the extremely watchful gaze of totmoartsstudio2), I have emerged from the fire with a much sharper set of skills.

So, this year, I will get back (or stick more closely) to drawing the one thing I cannot live without: Sword and Sorcery.

Because of last years super tight sched, I haven't really touched up on my FR art... and I feel guilty about letting myself go on that department... so THIS YEAR, i'm starting it right.
And one of my major failings last year was that I haven't been reading as much as I used to... so, I went by the bookstore last week and picked up "The Companions", "Night of the Hunter", and "Rise of the King".

It's time I got myself re-acquainted.



:icongido:



P.S.
I love how all the new books are revisiting the Underdark.  No offense to the rest of Faerun (except for maybe the Sword Coast), but the Underdark has always been where the magic happens for me.

P.P.S.
I KIND OF want to try my hand at a short comic this year (i'm sure i'll be able to squeeze time for it somewhere)... mostly with my OC's... because my heart is telling me that if I don't start now, chances are I never will.
So........ yeah.

Summary 2015 by Gido
Summary 2015
it has been a surprisingly uneventful year for me in terms of personal art.... but in that span of 8 months (drawing for everyone else but myself) i'd like to think i gained a whole new set of skills.

next year, it's time to put those new skills to the one thing i've always wanted to put them to.... fantasy art.

jarlaxle and the boys about to get a whole new coat of paint.

cheers everyone!

More Extreme Ghostbusters art... sorry, just couldn't get it out of my head.  I'm still in a nice, little halloween groove.... so, i might just do one more..... maybe....

Here's an excellent viewing accompaniment!  An audio clip from the particular episode!

The Grundel by Gido
The Grundel
"Come out and play child.... come out and play..."





Duties done for the month of October, so i finally get a little space to do some personal art.  And what better way to start things off than to work on some long overdue Halloween art!!  A few days past, but as always, better late than never.

Marathoned Extreme Ghostbusters for halloween.... and it's still amazing.  The Grundel just happened to be one of my favorites, so i thought i'd draw him this year.


These past few months have been a sort of trial by fire for me.... i have been digi-painting like my life depended on it and as such have acquired a much sharper set of skills.  Not quite there yet, but it's slowly getting to where i want it to be.
Thanks to the guiding efforts of my supreme taskmaster, :icontotmoartsstudio2:, i will emerge this year a stronger artist.  I can't wait for next year.

So I think it's time I updated my dA again just to let you guys know what i've been up to.

I've been really busy with GunshipRevolution these past few months (has it really been 5 months already??) with GenCon coming up and the subsequent client work pouring in.  Even if I haven't been able to draw any personal art in that time, i'm actually enjoying myself.  I'm slowly trying to inch my way into unfamiliar art territory, learning new techniques, improving old ones... just a general "getting out of my comfort zone" kind of thing.  Every now and then however, I get these random ideas in my head that I desperately want to put on paper but can't, because of work and stuff.  It's become like this crazy, maddening itch that I just can't scratch...

... so, all i can do for now is to jot them down on notepad so I know what to draw when I get some free time to myself again (it's now a list of 40 ideas long and growing).

So, for now, updates will be slow... 'til around the last quarter of the year.  Thank you for bearing with me. :)


:icongido:


P.S.
On a more non-art related subject, more of a personal tirade actually, certain events in my life have caused me to be more responsible with myself and those close to me.  I can't let them down.  So there has been an uncomfortable amount of soul searching on my part these past few months (aside from all my art shenanigans).  I'm looking to come out of this year better in every way... as a friend, as a son, as a brother, and as an artist.  [END of weird personal tirade]

P.P.S.
Regarding my (long overdue) request stack... i'm afraid i'm gonna have to put it on hold indefinitely. :(
I'm just too busy with a lot of other things right now in both work and my life.  All I can really say is that i'm sorry, I know that a couple of you were looking forward to them (even after all this time).
But i'm not necessarily saying that I'm NEVER going to go back to them, cause if I ever do decide to open up a request pool again, you guys will be first on the list. :)
And for those of you whose characters I was able to work on... thank you for trusting me with them.  You have no idea how that makes me feel. :)

You've probably got lots to do, but for any Realmsy projects, have you considered painting Athrogate? With Jarlaxle and Entreri, that is.
