Really, I should have posted this yesterday, but I didn't intend to write another journal until November (for some reason)
As you may be aware, this account is dead and isn't coming back.
Just kidding; it's dormant. I will still be posting things like pixel art on occasion - mostly for community-related things, like the emote Secret Santa, and collaborations. I'm trying to shift over to the other account, because that's where the majority of my work is going to be going, and I want to focus on producing less haphazard artwork. As much as I love this account, I'm not particularly proud of my artwork.
That aside, I have a lot of plans for this month; so hopefully I'll have something to show for my work by the end of it. The biggest thing is that by the end of the month, I will have a YouTube channel, so I would greatly appreciate it if you could visit and consider subscribing (when it happens, obviously). Anything I make on there will more than likely be submitted to FeralDoodle, and also put on Tumblr. I have a couple of ideas of what I want to upload this month, including a Halloween-related piece, and from November, I'll be submitting at least once a week. I have a preliminary schedule that I will give more info on when things are actually running. This links to the next point:
Patreon; you may be aware that I set up a Patreon account, earlier in the year. Ignore it for now, but towards the end of October, I will be completely reworking it. This is because I've decided to change the content I will be producing. Because of varying circumstances, I've had issues producing my webcomic, so I've booked a week off work to focus on completing the comics I've started up to this point, and prepare several in advance as a buffer. It's going to be a lot of work, so I'm hoping I can actually manage it. I didn't think it would be fair to expect people to donate money to something that wasn't a finished project, so I've held off uploading anything to Patreon until it's actually done.
When I rework my Patreon rewards, goals etc. I will be changing it from a per-content basis, to a per-month basis, because I want to be creating and submitting more content on a regular basis. I've invested in a lot of art materials and equipment in preparation for the videos, so now it's just down to time and motivation. I have 7 projects to work on outside of my webcomic and YouTube channel, so I have plenty to be getting on with. I really want to push towards making art a career instead of a hobby, so I'm hoping to make a lot of progress in the next year. I will also be using Patreon to reveal information on upcoming plans, which is something I never really divulge anywhere else.
I've also booked a second week off to go travelling with a friend. The festive season is quickly approaching, and I'm not close to quitting my job yet, so I need a break before the manic rush that is Christmas retail begins. My demeanor at work isn't great at the minute, because I know what I want to be doing, and I'm frustrated because I feel like I'm wasting my time doing a job I have no intention of pursuing any further. Everything hinges on what I can accomplish in the next few weeks, and hopefully the time away will help me process things and take my mind off all of the crap that's happened this year. Anyway, I'm really excited, and I guess I just have to work on patience.
And now I end this journal with the standard thanks for reading , and apologies for the lack of activity.
