So its been a little while since I updated my journal. Figured I'd post here to let you guys know what I've been up to. First, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! It may not seem like much, but it really did mean a lot to come on here and see all those kind birthday wishes
. I can't believe that I'm 24 years old. I was only 18 years old when I first started posting stuff on here. I think I registered the account shortly before my 18th birthday and I didn't actually post anything until the Fall. For nostalgia's sake, I decided to take a look back on some of my original art. I can't believe I ever considered any of my original art good XD. I've certainly improved along the way, though I still have a lot to learn and I'm hoping you all will be with me along the way. Speaking of coming a long way, a couple of weeks ago my gallery achieved a total of 200,000 views with 548 watchers. Honestly, I don't even know what to say. I never thought that I would ever even pass 10,000 when I started this gallery. I honestly believed back then that my content would be overlooked pretty easily. However the gallery took off fast and you guys encouraged me to try new things, improve myself, and get to the point that I'm at today. I hope to continue improving myself in the future. I have so many plans for this gallery and I hope you guys will follow me along the way.
One thing I've been trying to do for a while is get an off-site blog gallery. Doing that will offer me an alternative place to post images that DeviantArt may not approve of as well as a means of making a little bit of extra money through ad revenue. Unfortunately since I use copyrighted characters (like Kaa) for most of my stuff, that plan is currently taking longer than it should. I can't put Google Adsense on content that contains characters I don't legally own. What I am planning to do instead is create my own original characters and use them in the blog. I will have my own snake character as well as a few female characters of my own creation that he can coil around and hypnotize. Even though it won't technically be Kaa, the art and theme will be pretty close to what most of my Kaa images are like. I just need the snake's look and personality to be a little different so Disney doesn't stick a lawsuit up my gallery. Once I finish the designs of those characters, I will post them here and you guys can tell me what you think. After I figure that out, I'll also have a third blog thats probably a bit smaller that I can post Kaa related stuff that isn't suitable for DeviantArt. I'll probably use my Tumblr or something like it. Reading it, it does sound like a lot to keep track of, but we'll figure it all out as we go along. This gallery will still be my primary means of posting art, so you don't have to worry about that ever changing.
Another thing I've been thinking of doing on the side is a Pokemon Sapphire Let's Play series on YouTube. I mentioned it in my most recent image, which I will post a link to at the end of this journal. The play through I'm doing has one very strict rule. I can't use anything other than the Seviper I currently have in my party. So from the start of the game to the very end, the only Pokemon I'm allowed to use is Seviper. Well, two rules kinda. I can use other Pokemon for HM moves like Flash and Surf, otherwise I would be stuck at certain locations. But I'm not allowed to level them up and use them in important gym battles. Only Seviper. It should make for an interesting play through. On the one hand, since that Seviper is sponging all the experience from the game world its going to be super high leveled. On the other hand, I'm working with only one type, which means that anything that uses ground or psychic moves is going to kill me if I don't kill it first XD. But yeah, it should be fun. Let me know if you guys would be interested in seeing that.
Finally, I'm not accepting any new commissions. I have a lot to work on as it is as well as a lot of personal projects I'm trying to get done. So I kinda need to focus on what I've got now. Once I've made some room in my to-do list, I'll start accepting commissions again. I'll list all the commissions I currently have at the end of this journal.
Thanks for the all the support you guys!
