Just a note to say that I'm still alive! Well...mostly. I had a pretty busy November that kinda prevented me from doing much art this month. :/ Technically November isnt over, but I doubt I'll go on a crazy creation spree the next 24 hours. XD
In recent news, I've joined the Christmas choir at church. I've always had a difficult time connecting with people at the different churches I've 'attended' over the years, so I thought trying something different would help me get out of my "hermit artist" safety net. Not to mention I REALLY want to learn alto, cuz singing the melody all the time is just no fun.
So far it's been a good way to get me out of my shell, talk to people, and actually make friends (huzzah! FRIENDS!).
I've been getting encouraging compliments about the quality of my voice, which is nice, but I really dont know how to handle them. For some reason I DO NOT like the sound of my voice, and automatically assume it sounds bad to everyone else(especially when I accidentally skip back to soprano when I'm supposed to be alto). I'm still trying to do my best singing wise, and trying to stay less negative about myself. Yep...just another project thats a work in progress....
Actually I have been playing around with animation cuz I have a plot in mind. It's a great plot...but requires me learning new software. D: Heres my animation (it has some kinks, but for 2 hours worth of sketching it's actually pretty good): RotateBuuFaster
Speaking of Arting, I have a couple projects in progress for...DivisionHappy

Just letting you guys know so that you know that I haven't forgotten about you.
I'm hoping that December will be my CHRISTMAS SPIRIT ART MOTIVATION MONTH! Meaning I have some projects I would kinda like to get done this year so I can start 2016 with a newish slate (I still have backburner projects waiting).
I dunno, I can only hope! XD lol
I've discovered a new band to listen to as I work (both at my job and when I draw/paint). It's called, Wagakki Band. If you want to listen to something with traditional Japanese instruments with a little more of a band beat, you should definitely check this band out! My personal favorites are Nijiiro Chouchou (slowish) and SenbonZakura (Faster beat). Both are the youtube links below:
