Happy New Year! *pops confetti poppers* It's been quite some time! I thought I would update you all to the past few months of my life and some of my questions for what I'm going to do next!
Well, I actually just finished my degree COMPLETELY. I've graduated and now nearly have my licensure, which I did Student Teaching for from August-December. So in all honesty, that is most of what I have been doing. ^^' There has been no consistency to my artwork at all because of it. I have a couple of works that I can update this site with (two paintings, in fact), but I've been wondering what to do with this site, in general.
Firstly, I was thinking of changing the name. I've been a "Deviant" on here for 6 years now, and I believe that I have grown far beyond where I was at six years ago. "SelexiaOfTheHeart" made a reference to things that I was involved in those six years ago, and now the name is not as applicable. I was debating on whether to change it to match my personal/art tumblr account that I have. This is looking more and more like a possibility the more that I think about it! I'll make sure to let you all know of that change, if I choose to enact it.
Secondly, my other thought was to limit this DeviantArt account to my traditional artwork, such as my drawings and paintings. I would eliminate my past cosplays on here and might create a new account where I can feature those cosplays. It's the start of a new year and although I appreciate what my past art has done for me, getting me to the place that I am at today, I don't believe that it is very representational of my skills at their current level. I want to represent myself as an artist with what I am currently capable of. As for the cosplay things, I do still cosplay, and for those of you who are interested in following my cosplay work, I would certainly give you that link if I did create it I don't want to simply disappear from the cosplay community. I just know that it is hard to show my traditional work and represent myself as a traditional artist while also representing myself as a cosplayer. Anyone that has thoughts on this, or suggestions or experience with this: I would really appreciate you leaving me a comment down below and tell me of what you think! ^_^
As for a New Years resolution... a lot has changed over the past year for me. My main goal is to do at least one piece of artwork, a completed work, every month! ^_^ I want to see myself grow, and now that I'm out of my own education, I think now is the time to really let loose!!!!!
