First off, Happy New Year all! I'm going to be realistic and say that I hope you've got some manageable goals/resolutions for this year.
I won't waste my time apologizing for being so absent on DA because really, isn't everyone tired of excuses? ;_; First of all, my first semester of college was (for all you guys who've had one of these) very sleep deprived. College is an hour bus ride away from my house, so I get naps if I'm lucky, but otherwise I usually ended up with a cold or fever. That's the short version. But I got all A's in my five classes (and made it out alive), so I'm really happy.
And I did work on some artwork during Christmas time. I was finishing my second one, when my mom nearly passed away from a kidney infection and heart attack. Not the best way to end a vacation. But it was one of those times when you recognize who your true family friends are. Some barely or never asked how I and my family was doing, and some actually took time and effort to visit her and bring my family of 7 a few meals. It was a very emotional and stressful time for the family, and I believe I walked at least 15 miles or more this past week to relieve the stress. But anyway. She's better now. So Imma digress...
So I did end up wasting time apologizing for being so absent on DA.
Okay, something I wanted to clear up before I might disappear again. People that I know and on DA have asked me about requests. While I am truly relieved to say that my Spring semester seems a LOT lighter than the last, it's too early to tell. For now, I am working on commissions that will be sold at Kawaii Kon. And that kinda takes priority, sorry. I know I said that I might do requests during winter break, but I had a family crisis thing that I mentioned above... Unless I find a busy summer job, I'll ask again for requests to do during the summer.
What I would really love though, is for you (yes you. plz.) to give me a list of League of Legends Champions that you would like to see drawn! Last anime convention, my Caitlyn prints sold out.
So I want to at least make at least 3-5 more prints of LoL champs. Please write your list in a ranking order that you would like to see with 1 being the highest (eg. 1. Kayle, 2. Ezreal, 3. Akali...etc.). This would help me a lot, because I have a hard time keeping up with which champion is the most popular and most played. Especially with this season four stuff. But please, try to avoid skins. As much as I would love to draw Queen Ashe or Ghost Bride Morgana, I'm not sure how many others would like them enough to buy them. lol.
Or you help me out and let me know what you'd like to see first out of the sketches that I've already done: Kayle, Ezreal (I do have sketches of them lol), Vi, Nidalee, Akali, and Tristana. And I think I have a few more but I don't have my sketchbook with me right now. lol. I don't really like posting sketches on DA either (if I post a teaser, might as well finish it, right?). I do have ideas of a few other champs, but I'll leave it at that for now.
...And for everyone else who is fandom-ing about other fandoms, I DO have some Sherlock and Doctor Who prints in mind. Stay tuned. XD Please also let me know about other growing anime out there (besides Attack on Titan)!
'Til next time! Good luck to you all beginning the Spring semester!
