Happy New Year's Eve! Or depending in some places in the world, Happy New Year!
2019 was an important and busy year for me. Not only I joined NG but also started working on a short animated film as my thesis project. I also started practicing backgrounds and established my OC's so much more.
I'm incredibly grateful for all the support I've received here with my artwork and my animation. You don't know how happy I was that both of my past projects, the Oney Plays Animated and the DKC Collab, were frontpaged/daily selected and not only that, but a couple of my drawings and gif's also made it in. Best of all, I can stop being so grateful that a new character I created, Kahoon the crocodile, was frontpaged in a little animation test and also in a poster I made supporting the people of Chile, my country. I'm moved that my silliness and my character could carry a message about the conflict in my country to the rest to the world, thanks to being frontpaged.
2019 was a crazy year with highs and lows, but I'm glad that it happened and I hope we can learn and take inspiration into the future.
Now what's in store for 2020?
I'm currently in the middle of the clean up process of my thesis project. I had to finish it in January-February because I have to exhibit it in March. So, the next three months will be really tough and posts here will be low.
After that I can post more regularly, but I will take a break before doing that. I also have to search for jobs, so I think I finally can be open to comissions while I do that.
As for personal projects, I want to do more with my characters. I have been working on a story for Penumbra and the rest, but I wanna start with simple things involving the characters. Little animated shorts, comics, stuff like that. Once I land a story structure, maybe I will open a patreon or something to fund a short, a pilot or a larger comic. Everything will fall into place once I get there.
I want to do drawings streams, I want to set goals on ko-fi, I want to do drawing giveaways, all that stuff the cool kids do. So I hope and I'm sure that 2020 will be an awesome year to start this new life.
I hope you have a wonderful night, thank you again for your love and support, I wish you all a magnificent 2020 and I'll see ya all in the other side <3
