Hey there guys, doing great?
Well, how can I start this conversation? 2017 had been a great year here so far, a LOT of projects happening all at once and the support on this page and Patreon are just amazing too, seriously, thanks a lot for supporting me till this day as an artist!
But, you see, for more that things are happening non-stop, I writing this journal to announce that, for now, I will need to take a break.
Seems a little sudden and, in fact, it really is, but, you know when life change shifts and you just need to take a new take and opportunity? Yeah, something like this happened just now.
I got the opportunity to have new art classes with a group of friends and, with that, discuss new styles and learn more from them, and, since I was always an alone guy on this art journey (really, never did something like sharing tips with others or having teachers, always created my own style till this day), something there really called me cause, even knowing that I´m attending a lot of commissions here and people are enjoying, for me, I just feel I need to trade and learn more in the proccess, you know, take a new step further!
And, to make this happen, I will have to give some dedication to it, and, by the flow of projects I´m having here, this wouldn´t be possible without messing my schedules and taking a whole lot more to deliver each drawing, so, to not make things bad for any side, as I´ve said, decided to take a break now.
It´s not something THAT major cause I usually take a break in mid-year, so, I just advanced things a little bit this time to take this opportunity and try to learn a thing or two to get my art into a next level
Now, this doesn´t mean I´m stopping things all of a sudden too, the commission projects I already have settled here will all be finished
and, the patreon packs will continue just as well, with the current on-going projects being delivered there first, and, of course, all the special prizes along with it!
Also, the DA posts will continue as normal, since I have a LOT to post and, for the ones who watch things here, things will be just as usual
Now, for the second part, I´m also taking this opportunity to try something out, something I wanted to do for quite a time now and thought this would be a good moment to do it, and, by that, I mean a brand new DA page for my works!
First things first, I´m NOT letting this page die or trading it
, don´t worry, but, I noticed that I´m not working much with my creative side lately, duo the lack of time at hands, but, even not being able to draw everything I want (you know, have the bills to cover), I realized that, if I did things in a more "sketchy" and fast way, I could exercise my own ideas and characters and, by doing a second page, I wouldn´t pollute THIS gallery with unfinished artwork, cause, yeah, it would be strange to have this mixed with more than a 1.000 drawings all colored and finished! XD
So, I present you this new page, the d-ideas.deviantart.com/
one, where, I will post everything I will concept and create for now on, and with that, I mean, characters, stories, comics and everything, even in sketchy and unfinished form, and, to start everything, here is the first chapter for a webcomic I´ve created here, "Icarus Wings" (d-ideas.deviantart.com/gallery…
It will be a good way to make things work for my creative part and, still, not mess with the normal type of artworks you guys are used to here! Hope you guys enjoyed the idea!
So, with that, I can say a new phase has begun... I´m happy to start it and, hopefully, better things will come! ^^
Thanks a lot for all the patience, attention and, for the commissioners, don´t worry, expect to return as soon as possible and, of course, with new ways to make my artworks even better!
Wish me luck and thank you all for the attention, support and care on all these years, you guys were awesome!
