Just dropping by for the mandatory update to let you know I'm still here and what's been going on lately.
A lot has been happening again. I realized that graphic design field isn't really my thing, so I'm trying to apply to a fine arts university this year, for which I've had to do a few portfolio works. That, along with huge amounts of school work and a few personal setbacks have been keeping me busy. While the work
on my graphic novel has been progressing, it's been a little slow because of these things.
On a positive note, I was recently given a grant for the project from one of Finland's top comic creator organisations ^^. It is a great honor and it certainly motivates me to work on the book extra hard as now I can devote the whole summer on painting the pages.
Even though I haven't been able to post here more actively, almost all of my time goes into working on the project. I really wish I could show something of it, but currently it'd only give out spoilers. That's kind of the nature of these long-term projects. But I will start uploading more art and information about the comic as soon as I can. Hope I'm not starting to sound like a broken record by now .
Hmm, what else? The new Zelda is great, although I didn't buy a Switch for it. Been reading tons of art history books and trying to pick up some new techniques to use in my own art. I also started using oil paints and did a few practise runs with them. They probably won't replace acrylics for me because of the drying times, but I'd love to do some bigger artworks with them eventually.
Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice day
