It's November, which means life is about to get really hectic, really quickly
It has now been a year since I got braces, which means there's only six to twelve months left before I get them removed. There's been a lot of progress, but things seem to be going slower than expected, as I've had several appointments where treatment has been postponed until more progress had been made. Even though I'm used to it now, I can't wait to have things over and done with.
The last time I updated, I mentioned taking some time off to work on my webcomic. It didn't go completely to plan, but I made some progress and I'm currently updating as much as I can in my free time before I commit to working on creating my YouTube channel. I have the channel already, but I haven't really set anything up past the name. I've already updated a few comics that needed completion, and there are some that are practically finished, but I'm trying to update them in order in case anyone is following the story.
The second week of my holiday was dedicated to camping in the Peak District with a friend. We had a lot of fun, and I'm considering trying to find a job up there if things still aren't moving fast enough with my art stuff and I'm desperate to leave my current job. Realistically, I don't think I'll be leaving it, but I am tempted to quit after Christmas, regardless of what's happening. We'll see. One of the more surprising things I enjoyed while we were away was going to Conkers. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but we had a lot of fun there, and I could happily work in a place like that. We also went to something called Go Ape, which was amazing. Definitely plan to do that again at some point. I took a lot of photos while we were away, and I've been sketching bits and pieces for illustrations I plan to film. I'm really excited about my art plans.
Speaking of which, I made a practice piece with the copics I recently bought, and apart from a few mistakes while inking, and various bleeds (I used the wrong kind of paper, but it behaved surprisingly well compared to my test swatches), it turned out pretty good. Here it is if you're interested:
In case you're wondering, it's Gwendolyn from my Webcomic, Stench Maiden (Which I will shameless plug here)
So that's all for now. I intended to say more, but now I just want to sleep. Thanks for reading
