Wow, can't believe it's December already. There's two things I like to do at the end of every year. I run a poll
around the middle of December asking how you think I'm doing. It would mean a lot to me if you would take the time to vote, it helps me gauge how I'm doing. The results were good in 2011
, better in 2012
, and then worse in 2013
. I hope I'll do better in the poll this year.
The other thing I like to do is look back at the Top 10 deviations of the year. There's a section in my gallery where you can find the Top Art in 2011
, Top Art in 2012
, and Top Art in 2013
. I've posted over 150 commissioned deviations
so far this year, and will definitely surpass the 156 that I posted in 2013. There's definitely going to be a lot of great art in the Top 10 for this year. I received so much good stuff this year that some worthy commissions won't make the cut:
I am re-organizing my gallery
and trying to sort things better. One thing I will continue to do is post everything in the Featured part of the gallery, so you can always find everything there. My goal is to make it easier to find art by a particular artist or art of a certain character.
I started the Awesome Pic of the Day
feature on my page this year. I haven't posted there as much as I would have liked. I hope you have been enjoying it.
The Pixiv Archive is up to 24
and counting. Pixiv changed the way it stores images on its site recently, which makes it harder to put together the stuff I feature. I might have to stop doing these, since its taking longer and longer to do them. That's time that i could be spending commissioning more art, so I have to think about it.
I colored 36 pages of Magic Muscle
, the Fairy Tail doujinshi project led by jsiejkd
with art by the awesome Pokkuti
kindly contributed some money to fund the coloring. All the pages of the main story should be colored by early next year. Some people have asked if I would be coloring the Juvia Side Story
or the Wendy Side Story
featuring art by bokuman
. The answer for now is no, but that could change if I get more time.
A lot happened in 2014 and I've got a lot more planned for 2015. As always, keep sending me your comments. They keep me motivated in sharing my commissions and findings.
