Summary of Art 2012 by AltairRia Summary of Art 2012 by AltairRia
welp. :iconlazepoolplz:
effing improved on colouring... a lot.

January: I was mostly drawing on paper. Sketching characters and such. I was trying watercolors for the first time and colorpencils, since I usually don't color my drawings.

February: Again, the same as January, except just plain old sketching. I think it was during this month I was developing a couple of story concepts.

March: Tried out some softwares, like Copic sketchbook and Fire Alpaca. Still drew a lot on paper.

April: I think this was the slow turning point of where I mostly draw digitally. This was also the time where I was helping my friend :iconshirayuki1265: use her sister's tablet for the first time.

May: I had this small phase where I would look at my art in the past and remake them again, especially for this one story I'm making. Fortunately I only redrew one of them.

June: Summer break! I mostly talked to :icononagaku: , :iconlurichiyohime: , and :iconask-the-mouse-prince: and we would do livestreams and such. We actually met at a livestream before, then after, we started talking about making a group. Gradually drew more in digital rather than in traditional.

July: Oh July... this is was the month where I joined a RP group for the first time since I join deviantart I had an old one, but deactivate it Joined :iconki-gakuen: and :iconcourtofsouls: I met really interesting people like :iconlazuly: , :iconrinachu-moogie08: :iconmllenightingale: , :iconrunawayblackbird: , :iconotaku-san1: , :iconshiocchin: , :iconsaku-chi: , :iconhoborii: , :iconkatoshin: , and of course :iconchurinrin: I knew about some of the dealings of RP groups and told myself to limit them. Suddenly :iconrastazielacademy: is made. I drew a lot in digital than traditional at this point.

August: When school started, I drew less, as expected. I still kept in touch with my internet friends, going to chats and such. Again, like in July, mostly drew digital. Saturdays were always my drawing days after I finish cleaning. There were times in the weekdays where I do draw, but only on certain circumstances. Colouring, during this month and July were just out there. @A@ I really didn't know what to do. At the same time, I test myself on not using the high settings on the stablizer in SAI so I can have better control on low settings.

September: September seem to be the odd one. Having to survive school everyday, I didn't have time to draw during school. I wasn't in the chats as much, but I still kept in contact. There was a point, during this month, where I really wanted to draw something on paper. So I took out a scrap piece of paper (this was during my English Class) that was in my art folder then my drawing pencil and began making a sketch. My classmate was surprise that I start and finished it during the same time we were grading papers. I tried out for :iconsos-agency: and :iconcirque-des-reves: ( to be honest, I thought I would never get in CdR, but here I am, talking to them most of the time when I log in at Skype and trying to participate at each event they throw out at us at the same time, became attach to my character, Ines. ) Then :iconthebigworldaroundus: was made with no time at all, it became a boomtown.

October: October felt neutral. I did the same routine like usual. I kind of thought that nothing really changed.

November: November.. in a way.. was a dark time for me. I started to feel down a lot due to numerous stress like school and family. The main one was drawing and maybe DeviantArt. I wanted to stay away from this website for a bit, just to clear my head a bit. That's where my hiatus began to start. It was to the point where I didn't want to draw anymore and I did...for a week. After that, I became my derpy self and started drawing once again. I did a redo on my drawing in April and well.. I was basically shocked by how much my art changed in 6 months. I'm mostly active in CdR and TBWAU.

December: I tried coloring over sketch and tried another art software. I actually miss drawing traditionally since I usually do that to practice my sketches.

I actually felt teary when I saw my summary of this year. ; w ;
