Holy crap. An actual post here again. That's rare.
Anyway, 2016 was shit. Everyone knows it, so I won't waste time further grinding the ashes of that dead horse. Somehow, I feel 2017 isn't going to be any better (it's already got a pretty shitty start for me so that's a good sign), but I'm going to plow through it the best that I can.
I have a couple of basic goals for the year. Priority number one will be to seriously focus on animation again. School will (hopefully) be coming to an end for me by the end of the year, which means I will have an animation project to work on as my final. Pretty much throughout the year I will be focusing on getting started on that, getting a head start and really making something great from it. I am an animation major and I have rarely tapped into it. That's gotta change.
Second is the overall quality of my work. I'm continuously striving to make my work look better. Not just in terms of overall technical skill, but also in style. I'm still trying to test out new art styles, new ways of coloring and shading. Some pretty good stuff, some not so good stuff. Regardless, I just need to keep at it until I find something that sticks.
And that's the basic gist of what I want to do. Here's hoping I can get these accomplished (and actually surviving this year would be a miracle in of itself). Now since school whill be starting back up again soon I may be limiting my stream time. I'll still try to stream every chance I get.
Hope everyone gets through this year okay.
P.S. I'm especially surprised that I have close to 200 followers here on Newgrounds. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to view my work.
