So.

I was gonna write this journal at the beginning of the new year. But of course I didn't do that. What happened?

Well, in early December I got a commission. However, due to uni and Christmas I was unable to finish it (or even really start to work on it) at that time. So the new year came around, and I was determined to start working on this thing. And then I got sick. I wasn't able to focus enough to work on an important art piece. Then exams came around, and I had no time whatsoever again. Toward the end of exams I also got sick again, and due to the added stress of exams, it hit me pretty hard this time. I got sicker and sicker and it didn't get better for weeks. Eventually I got diagnosed with sinusitis, and I am now taking antibiotics and they are helping. And so I could finally finish the commission.

So... what now? Well, I'm planning to change a lot of things about how I'm making art and how I'm using deviantart.

First off, for now, commissions are closed. I never officially opened them, but if someone messaged me about them, I'd usually take them. This is now not the case anymore. They are officially closed.

Next, and somewhat relating to the first, I'm going to make more art for myself. A lot of the art I made in the past years was heavily dominated by what I thought people liked rather than what I wanted to make. However, that is not fun at all most of the time, so I'm going to make the art I want to make much more now. This does mean that perhaps the art I make will shift to be be a bit darker or at least more sad (I *do* like to make sad art after all), or maybe it won't. But that's just the thing, I'm not going to commit myself. It will also mean that there likely will be more non-MLP art. There's a lot of things I want to make art for. I will certainly not stop making MLP art, but it will be accompanied by some other stuff.

This will also mean - much more art! I cannot exactly say how much it will be. I'm trying to draw every day, but a lot of this, especially right now, is studies and such, which I am not going to upload to deviantart. However, I'll probably upload more unfinished or unpolished things, so expect more sketches and uncoloured art. This will not take away from the finished art, however it will add a lot more content to my profile.

I think that is all for now. I'm looking forward to making some brand new art!

Have a happy 2017.
