It's been a while so I thought I'd drop you all a message to let you know what's going on and prove I am still alive!
Firstly, thank you all for the faves and watches - for new watchers, I don't usually thank for faves individually but I make one of these journals every now and then to thank everyone as a whole so people know every single fave is appreciated. Thank all you guys so much for the support
My schedule in RL has been pretty busy recently, so when I do have spare time I don't feel like doing much (what with my health crap and all) meaning things have been a little slow; that doesn't mean I don't have anything to upload! I have been pretty busy with art as well, but I've been taking on some of the designs I've had in my head for a while, the ones I've found pretty difficult for one reason or another. I'll probably upload all the sketches - and reveals for the silhouettes in sketch form - in one big art dump in the very near future. I've also been working on a business card logo for my sister, so I've been a little distracted with that (it won't be uploaded here, it's just another reason for me seeming more inactive than usual).
There's still plenty of things I want to get round to and I still have a ton of future fakemon designs in mind - probably enough for a couple more regions if all's told - but of course, since they're not down in sketch form yet (I've written a lot down, some are in my head) other designers are making similar ones before I can get around to them, as is a hazard of the job. It means extra time to re-design when one idea is too similar to what I have in mind but hey, it does mean that my ideas are on the right track That's why I'm sketching a lot rather than colouring right now, so I can get the ideas out so they can be free to frolic with others. I've been working pretty hard on improving my designing skills when I do get the chance, I hope it shows in my future submissions!
That's about it from me for now, I hope to hear from you all soon!
