I know for a lot of people, 2016 was terrible. A lot of bad things happened, but there was a lot of good too. For me, especially the second half, the year was great to me. I’ve grown so much. When it came to my art, I felt so lost. I didn’t really have a clear idea of what I was trying to do or which direction I wanted to go. This confusion led me to having little to no motivation. It’s like I desperately wanted to do something, but I couldn’t. I would go days, weeks, barely drawing anything. Thanks to some amazing people that I’ve encountered, I’ve regained this fire inside me that I haven’t felt in a long time. The instructors at my school are really good. I’ve been pushed in a way that I really needed. I have focus. I have drive. I have enthusiasm. Sometimes I feel unstoppable. Even if there’s still some things I’m unsure about, I’m not afraid. I still have a lot to learn, but, I’m excited to see where this art journey is going to take me. So reflecting back on all of this, I just wanted to sit down and think about some things I want to achieve, or at least work on, for the new year.
- Of course I want to improve my skills even more. To continue down the path of the way I’m painting now; Understanding and exploring more of what I’m painting about, and in turn, myself. To try new techniques, learn from my mistakes, and to be patient with myself when I make them.
- I want to push myself to create more art. On top of the paintings I have to do for school, I want to try doing more art in between. I want to start doing daily doodles again. Draw more fanart! At the end of the year, I want to be able to look back at a larger body of work and how much I’ve grown.
- With creating more art, I want to make more videos to go along with that. I started my art channel in the summer, and since then, I’ve only uploaded 6 videos. Granted, college and work does take a lot of my time, but I want to find a way to make more room for Youtube. I really enjoy it, it’s a lot of fun. C:
