It's a secret to nobody that I haven't been posting very often. I've been drawing every day, but nothing has been submitted to my deviantART account. There are a number of reasons for this. First off, more of my time has been dedicated to programming. I want to work as a programmer so much of my time has been spent learning game development, GUI applications and mobile apps. Obviously, I can't submit any of this to dA. And when I do make art, I rarely have the patience to submit it.

Which brings me to my next point. dA just isn't convenient for submitting art. Everything needs a description and tagging which feels like a chore. Most of my friends like gagaman92 have jumped ship to Tumblr and I've been posting on forums like TIGSource, MFGG and Starmen.net. It's a lot less work and you're not locked out of basic site features because you lack a CORE membership.

Lastly, my drawing style doesn't lend itself well to submitting. I don't draw isolated pictures. I work on large projects for months at a time and don't like to show things until they're finished. And very often, I don't finish these projects so I don't post them. But enough is enough! I'm going to do something about this.

Starting tomorrow, I will be submitting a few pieces of art a day for the next few weeks. How many, you ask? I'll post one and then however many pieces of art are directly related to that one. So if I post a mockup, I will post all of the sprites, tiles and sketches that go with it. I don't want to overwhelm my watchers so I will slowly work through this backlog. In the end, my gallery will reflect how good of an artist I am now. Most of this art will be unfinished, but it will represent a lot of time and hard work.

So what exactly prompted this? Well, I recently had a dip in artistic confidence. I felt like I never went out of my comfort zone and I wasn't challenging myself. So I played this amazing game called Drawception. It's like figure drawing on crack! You get a completely random concept and are asked to draw it in 10 minutes. And after churning out this garbage for 3 days, I came to a realization. I'm no longer worried about showing people my art no matter how incomplete it is. I've put my best into everything I do and this is true for everything I've drawn from the oldest, cringiest piece of art to my newest pieces I'm very proud of.

So that's it. Expect a slow trickle of deviations for a while. Once I'm done, I'll update with another journal. It's gonna be a heck of a ride through my past two years of artistic growth! See you at the end.
