Now that I've finally uploaded something this month, I can do one of these at last. : P
I admit... I feel I have undergone some significant improvement this year. I've begun to push my expressions and poses further, experimented with stylization, I've become more comfortable with digital painting... I've learned a lot. Nothing huge or a breakthrough going on here, but it's another step, I suppose. Although it certainly helps hit home that I really need to put more variety into my subject matter - nothing but women and animals, here. lol (nevermind the sole human male there under May
If anything, while not something that can be seen here on dA, I've learned more about what I want to do and how I can accomplish it. I've consumed more and more knowledge about the animation business, I've listened to various professionals and made connections - I even got to see in person and meet some of my idols, including the master Andreas Deja - and was all around inspired by other artists all around me, especially at CTN. Seeing Glen Keane speak was probably the highlight of the year, for me. In short, I feel just a bit more confident and knowledgeable about my choice in profession than before.
Here's to another year of improvement! And animation - I'm taking 2D Character Animation in January so expect to see more moving drawings up here soon enough!
