this should be easy, considering nobody ever saw any of my old shitOLD SHIT
My first ever OC since 2nd grade, Young Ty. Constantly being updated and redesigned, and always ignored by anyone i share him with. Proof that original ideas are probably not that interesting and that no one will care if they are anyway.
Elkay the Lizard Kid. At times I would try to do a slightly more realistic style of my work in an attempt to make it "live action".. look how that turned out. Also every single body part was a layer each, so each of these things got me like 40 layers more or less.
One of my favorites from the Constellation Draco thing. For a while none of my OC's or stories were getting any attention until I started doing dragons ... and then the interest was lost in like 3 weeks.
I'd like to think at some point I actually started to develop my skills. And it was around this time that I realized the true power of sex appeal .. and how it can get you like 4 more comments on your artwork.
I had a lot of OC's and stories that I was super proud of .. and in time you just kinda learn how you can put so much love into fictional characters and how none of that will matter if your audience doesn't care. and then i drew HTTYD and got a little more attention
and then i drew Jurassic Park stuff and got a little MORE attention
and then i draw Godzilla with anime characters
then i draw a cute Godzilla pic that gets a ton of likes and open up requests
and BAM, SUDDENLY EVERYONE LIKES MY ART, I WONDER WHY? ITS NOT LIKE THEY'RE JUST PANDERING TO ME TO GET IN A SHITTY REQUEST CUS NOTHING ELSE I DO WILL GET ANYONE'S ATTENTION
and then I do Gem stuff and it's slowly calming down a bit
and then i announce that I'm working on my own original material for my personal art portfolio
... nothing... dead silence
and now onto some more modern shitNEW SHIT
the Lovely Erica, the model i used in a simple Flash Animation video that i also turned into this super detailed pinup. It was the first thing I had made in a long time that actually got more positive reactions, and it made me feel good about my own work again.
Another attempt to getting back into the whole Constellation Draco thing. This time around its based on what I've learned in animation class, and it seems to get positive reactions from actual animation professors.. you know, the opinions that actually matter
This one represents all the updates I do on my OC's. At first they were just a bunch of pale lame-o ghosts who weren't scary at all, no matter how red their eyes were or how smoky the background was. but then idk how, but out of nowhere my hands just MADE this, and I felt like i could update all my characters with great improvements and there can still be hope.
*for those of you who skipped this journal and jumped to the end, i dare you to tag some people, and have them do some soul searching too
