2014 rather sucked, actually. But I didn't know what was in store for me on Jan 10th when I put up my first deviation for the year: "Vanellope Von Jamesdean"
- a very typical mash-up, and one that I'm very proud of. (The mashuppery, since the original images are not mine.) Fave detail: the reflection in the wet road.
Since then: TWENTY-EIGHT DEVIATIONS! Some being really quick and dirty (borrowed images (always acknowledged) mashed-up or modded.) But significantly a lot of Gif animations - THIRTEEN OF THEM. They DID take a lot of time, and strained my creativity to the max.
My personal fave: Coffee Tron:
- Original Character design (effectively my first), and a load of complex drawing (mostly from scratch) and tinkering to get her to run. Fave detail: the reflection in the shiny counter-top.
Two big series started (and none of them yet finished). And the usual random 'ah-hah' moments.
As to the rest of 2014 - as mentioned it sucked. I became frightfully sick for three months (to the pneumonia-stage), and two valuable people died, 5 weeks apart. Many other painful loses, too. I just haven't cried enough.
I guess Deviant Art is my safe haven, and my 'release'.
Currently my "Osaka Go!" animations have been fun. More story-telling, with a dash of comedy. Hope you're enjoying them.
Thanks for the watches, and all the faves. Means a lot to me!
Cheers, & happy bloody merry Seasonal Festive Day to ya all!
