How are you all doing?

Posted by CandySweetssJr - 6 days ago

Itchy eyebrows!!!

Sorry about not posting recently. Promise, things are in the works. Other than ccharacter designs, I'm planning on doing some paintings and other cool stuff.

I've already posted a bit of music, and I'm a little exhausted of musical ideas, so probably no music in the near future :/ .

Have some music plans coming up. Uploading possibly in the next few days :)

That feeling when you want to complete a big project, you start working on in immediately, chuck by chunk and then. You get burnt out or lost interest or doubt yourself. I wish it wasn't a thing, but it happens most of the time.

I was working on a large digital painting project. It was going to have multiple panels with various characters and symbolism, bordering and dramatic lighting. Only finished three panels :(.

Still though, better than not starting at all. Maybe I'm working too hard.

I logged on Newgrounds to post an artwork and I didn't expect this:


Thank you whoever did this :)

After being on a long hiatus, a bunch of people in my life have pushed me to work on my art again. In addition, I'll be posting on my new Instagram! So yeah, new changes including more posts over there hopefully :).

It's hard to post nowadays, especially with all the busy things keeping life busy. Just hope to work on at least some small piece of art:

Welp. It's a new day, new year. I just wanted to wish everyone here happy holidays!

It's almost the end of october and that means octobit is ending. I was trying to post every day, hoping that I'd post more in the future, but as time progressed, the pixel art began to feel more rushed and I stopped at ~21st.

I feel dissapointed about having to stop. Still though, I'm happy about dabbling in all different styles of pixel art. The focus of the pixel art shifted from just daily posting to experimentation. At many points, I looked up other people's pixel art and I was inspired by a lot of people. Because of Octobit some cool pixel art people were more promoted and that's great!

Rambling aside, I'm both sad and happy about my first Octobit year, and I will definitely do it next year (if I don't get swallowed by school work, meh :/ ).

Also, for those who are following me, I want to post less often because I want to make sure the art I post is REALLY GOOD. Not some mediocre character designs that were made in the motions. I want to do some research and experiment more with the artwork. What I want to experiment with more is storytelling through art. I've always had so many characters, but I don't think anyone was too interested because I didn't show you guys WHO these guys are.

With a tentative schedule, I will be posting more storyboard art posts. Hopefully this content will be more inspirational or interesting!

So. I'm planning to post everyday of October. It's going to be a lot of work, but I think doing Octobit with the pixel art will make it easier than the last two Inktobers I've done.

I don't know if I'll have a theme for my artworks. For the first one I wanted to draw a durian, for many reasons. Other than that, I'll probably default to more character designs.

Maybe I can get some ideas from whoever reads these posts. Thanks!
