Hey! Long time no journal! It's... been almost a year according to the date of my last one.
Updates! I'm dropping out of college when this term finishes at the end of this month. the art department (and education system in general) is absolutely abysmal and i have not enjoyed it one bit. the one benefit was meeting some amazing new people, but other than that it was nothing but awful organization on the college's part, totally inept tutors (who have, according to the ONE tutor who is actually a working artist, been reported for their inability to teach/awful attitudes/etc multiple times over the years), inconsistent teaching and information, sudden deadline changes or assignment changes, next to no understanding of the mental health of the students... y'know, we actually have a notebook that we as a class logged every issue in, be it deadline issues or tutors picking on individual students, and plan to go to the highest person in the chain of command that we can to complain about it all, ha.
I'm going to volunteer at some local animal sanctuaries instead, and work on my art on my own as i have almost always done anyway. And play videogames. of course.
And doing commissions! That's gonna happen. Finally. Just a few slots at first, and i probably won't announce the first batch of slots here on deviantart. Not sure yet; we'll see. I'll DEFINITELY be putting the info up on my art blog though, so feel free to follow me there (and my other personal blogs if you want). I also tend to post sketches or unfinished work there too.
I'm also going to get a premium membership again as soon as possible (i can't right now as i'm saving for a new tablet) to change my name here, but that's not super urgent.
Anyway, i've had a load of new followers since i last posted anything, and i'd love to get to know some of you feel free to chat whenever you want! I'll reply eventually! I hope everyone is well!
