February in Retrospect - A month of FAIL
Two months in already wow. Well February up and left as soon as it came. Progress was made, however even more goals were not met. At the very least I did keep the most important goal: Keep up with the schedule. I think at this point this ambitious endeavor of mine has become part of my routine. I once again feel I am getting faster at drawing and coloring at a level I am satisfied with. So lets see some highlights:
-Create and upload a new devID.
-Write a journal CSS.
-Finish designing and introduce the two remaining band members of Phoenix Element
So what the hell did I do? Not a damn thing, that's what. Lets have a look at what I DID accomplish, clocking in at a grand total of two...ish. More like one and a half.
-Upload more fully colored work and less repeats
I did manage to upload more full color images than last month, at 6 deviations, compared to 4 in January.
-Design and introduce female villain character
That character I had in mind was Svetlana. I did these two sketches, but that's all they are, character sketches. She needs, much, MUCH more development.
-BONUS GOAL: Enter a contest
This was a good star and a rude awakening when I comes to contest entries. I am happy I managed to at least participate, even if my chances of winning are slim, they are better than the zero chances I would have had if I hadn't submitted anything.
So what's the plan for MARCH?
I am declaring March community interaction month. I don't want to draw my stuff, I want to draw your stuff. So I am offering up a bunch of stuff:
Ultra Cheap Commissions
50 dA points gets you a black/white sketch
100 dA points gets you a color drawing
So just over a dollar for a color drawing. And since I am drawing and submitting art daily expect a quick turn over. I expect these will be used the least, but lets give it a shot anyway. Send me a note and we'll talk. Lets do three at a time.
SLOT 1: - Color Commission
SLOT 2: - Color Commission
SLOT 3: *OPEN*
Send me a note and we can set up an art trade. Lets put up 5 at a time.
SLOT 1: Trade with of her character The Korean:
SLOT 2: *OPEN*
SLOT 3: *OPEN*
SLOT 4: *OPEN*
SLOT 5: *OPEN*
Snag a screenshot of any of the following pageviews on my page and win some free art:
26,000 - Claimed by - Requested his character Orzel:
27,000 - Unclaimed - Wins you a free sketch, one character
28,000 - Unclaimed - Wins you a free sketch, one character
29,000 - Unclaimed - Wins you a free sketch, one character
30,000 - Unclaimed - Wins you a free color commission, up to three characters
I won't do requests. The reason is that it is too easy to stop by and link a thumbnail and hope for the best, there is little to no effort required to request something.
For trades and kiribans watchers get priority, I would appreciate it if you followed my page!
If want to participate in any of these, please be prepared to provide a reference image for me to look at.
I reserve the right to refuse the subject matter of any image based on my sole discretion. Basically, I won't draw porn, gore, ect ect, cause I don't want to.
