Since summer's coming to a pretty close end for me, I'd like to start by saying a few things and informing everybody.
The first day of school is September 3rd, so I only have about 15 days left to myself. I finished all of my summer work except for a quick and fairly small research paper (only 3 pages; I had work in every subject). Before I upload any artwork again, I want to finish that. I plan on having it done this week anyways. However, my field hockey season started this Monday so I've been very tired and such during the day, so I have no motivation to even move. ._. It's the first preseason week, also known as tryouts, also known as Hell Week. xD So that'll keep me busy until the start of school as well. I'm the goalie, and due to someone trying out for the position and having two others besides me, I may be switching positions back and forth from JV and Varsity, but I don't want to jinx it. Once I start school, I'll be staying there until around 5-7ish because of said sport and maybe even later due to games, giving me no time to do my school work. This only lasts until the end of the Fall, but I also plan on trying out for Lacrosse in the Springtime and scoring a job in the Winter.
Once school starts, I will not be as active, that is, if I am at all.
I'll stop by on weekdays, but I won't be uploading much art. At that time, I won't usually accept commissions and other stuff. The reasoning behind this is that I'm in all Honors classes, I'm taking two math courses, and I'll be out earlier than usual because I have to arrive to school about half an hour earlier than everyone else for the whole year (I'm taking a morning band course). I had to get this schedule because I wanted to double up in math, but I also wanted an art course and band. xD
I'm going to be carrying around a small sketch book with me in school, so maybe I could show everybody those pieces. It's a clean book, nothing's in it yet, and I plan on doodling and sketching during my free time. I have a goal to finish 2-3 of those books before next June. (:
Lately I've been very lost about what I want to do when I'm older. I understand I'm only 15, but I would like some sort of idea. It would be heaven for me if I could someday create a viral web-comic and even get it published on paper. I just want to know the feeling of having thousands of people in a fanbase LOVE my ideas and my designs and my work. However I know I'm nowhere near being a skilled artist, and I know I have a lot of work to do. I hate to admit it, but it's very discouraging. I even picture creating a game for my ideas. I have this whole thing planned out, but it's so hard to get on paper, and it's even harder during the school year. Knowing how many people care as of now is even more of a letdown, and I understand I have to progress and give it time, but I can't help wondering: "Will it ever get at least more than TEN fans???" I'm very skeptical about posting everything on DeviantArt because of this particular reason. And before I say this, I just want everybody to know that I am very grateful to the small group of people who take their time to read what I have to say and view what I have to draw. Having 319 watchers and only having a couple actually show any signs of life really upsets me. I fully know and understand that I have no control over this, but it's such a bother for me! And I don't know what to do about any of it. I ALSO know that chances of becoming a famous concept artists or character developer are extremely slim, but can't I just dwell in my own little fantasy??
