Hey there, watchers!
Yeah this is a pretty strange sight, right? Well, this journal is to officially announce that I'm out of hiatus.
Believe me, you have no idea how hard I had tried to keep up deviantART along with school work and AP studio art, but every single time I was just so tied down to even properly draw the things that I wanted to draw. However, I made a promise to myself since my last post here that in May, when school was officially over, that I would come back to a normal posting schedule. Aaand then other things happened - family and summer school primarily.
But here are the things I'd been up to art-wise:
- National Portfolio Day - an amazing experience and really brought my attention to the finer aspects of choosing the right art college
- Several art excursions - around my area, I'd been to so many art places that I never knew existed. A highlight would have to be my first time visiting LACMA in Los Angeles, though I wish we weren't put in tours and they would've just let us wander around bc time reasons -.- but all in all I went to about 3 art excursions in second semester that is a lot.
- AP Studio Art - worst/best decision I'd made this school year, because it was awfully time consuming (because procrastination is a thing that exists too) and I had irregular sleeping hours for weeks BUT in turn I had rigorously developed the plot and design of 'The Archangel'!
Ask me more about anything you wanted to know about these, especially with NPD or AP Art.
Apart from all of this, there's one other pressing matter I'd been meaning to address for a long time - the Rise of the Guardians story, Bree of Broken Dreams.
You may have heard of the project I'd been working on with
that originally dates back to about two years ago. Indeed, it was a massive on-and-off project, but I had only managed to fully grasp an entire fully developed plot line just last year. However, due to errors that were entirely my own fault, the story was quite literally lost
. As a result, I had only completed a minimal amount of finalised work. It sounds very clinical and brief to say the least when I word it like this but here:
This is how I apologise to you - I've created a private blog
on tumblr on which I'll be posting everything I could find of the development of the story. From the first designs of Bree, to the finished prologue, until finally - the first version of the plot itself.*
The password to the blog is "fitz-rotg".
The blog won't be there forever, I will post a single item every other day in order to prolong its existence, but after the last post, it will be around for another week before it's inevitably shut down.
Nonetheless, I am so sorry for everything. Everyone who supported the story deserved better than my management of it. I will say, however, thank you for everything you've done to support it. Every anticipated comment was my driving force to move with the development. I'm just sorry it was never completed.
Thank you all again. Over the past few months of inactivity, I've still managed to receive many amazing comments from the fandom communities I was in! Checking up on them from time to time helped me get through some stuff and only furthered my need to reboot this profile. I hope that this will be an interesting summer!
*the reason why I won't use this version of the plot is because I had a much better version in mind. The one I'm talking about is the first unrefined version.
