I'm not good at following resolutions because they make me feel like I'm being told what to do, and due to my abusive childhood I have extreme issues with being ordered around, as in I can have panic attacks if I don't feel like I have some control over the situation. But I have goals in mind, so this time it's going to be different. I am in control of myself. I am unbreakable. So my plans for 2013:
Get back to drawing my practice comic about my muse Zhenzhu, and see if I can upload one each month. (I'm quite fond of it and have ideas for 30+ more installments, but I got very unhappy with the lineart for the third one and put it on the back burner.)
Perfect my manga-inspired cartoony style so I'll be ready to start my huge webcomic in 2014.
Possibly start uploading concept art or character refs for the webcomic starting in August, drawing skills willing.
Figure out how to do detailed backgrounds, specifically city scenes.
Get better at vanishing points. (Have I mentioned how much I dislike them?)
Develop a more realistic style and figure out how to do fur detail.
Draw Sparklyena more. (I miss her.)
Figure out how to draw fight scenes properly.
Learn to draw faster.
That's all my art-related goals. I might have much more time than originally planned to draw, as the college has once again kicked me out for being poor without giving me a chance to address the problem first. Last time, it was because I didn't fill out a form they never told me I had to fill out. This time, I have no idea what went wrong, but it absolutely wasn't my fault. I should find out Monday whether I'll be going back to college or not.
