(gosh it's been a while since I wrote one of those!)
Hey everyone, thanks for still being around even though I haven't been updating my deviantart in the past few months. [yes, I'm GUILTY AS CHARGED]
The reason why I wasn't feeling like updating my deviantart is mostly because I don't have anything shiny or finished or polished enough recently.
I moved to my own apartment last November and I'm now officially living off of my own art! That's so freaking cool!... but
I've been so caught up on freelance work that I can only feed my social media with sketches and studies, nothing that I judge "worth" of a submission here.
The rough stuff
I'm 'the guy who skipped art education' trying to make art as a living.
This thought haunts me more than I would like to admit. That's why, since last year, I've been focusing on learning everything from scratch: fundamentals such as anatomy, perspective, grayscale values, color theory and so on. I feel safer to upload these on other social media such as my instagram
because posts feel less compromised there, they feel like a daily/quick thing. On dA I feel like every single post counts and it has to be always bigger, better, stronger
than the previous one.
But wait a second, remember how this account started?
A doodle a day keeps procrastination away
I used to be called 365 days of DOODLES, my very first project in which I uploaded one drawing a day, however good/bad it was. Not only that but the fact that someone on facebook called me out today like "why did you stopped posting on deviantart?"made me realize I shouldn't hold my posts sacred. Here to say I'll try my best to keep you updated here too, so thanks again for staying around. ❤
In other news, I'm releasing A COLORING BOOK!
CELESTIAL features all my recent constellations drawings, the zodiac arrows and their archers (yea the archers! I've been wanting to post them since forever now!). The book is coming up on June 6th, but you can already preorder here: www.amazon.com/Celestial-Color…
Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed drawing them! 💜
