“If someone ever tells me it's a mistake to have hope, well then, I'll just tell them they're wrong. And I'll keep telling them til they believe! No matter how many times it takes...” - Madoka Kaname
Another year is gone. For me a year with great changes. That is valid for my DA account as well. It's the year I gave up figure photography and started to draw/paint instead.
Looking back to my old figure photography I have to say without praise myself, some of them look really cool and I don't understand why they didn't get more attention. In fact, 5 years of doing figure photography and photomanipulations where five lost years and considering the attention they got, I produced one flop after another. Not to mention that there is no way to earn a single Dollar with it.
Doing drawings about a year now was the total opposite of a story of success either, but I'm not nervous about that right now. Drawing is a quite different procedure than photography and I needed some time to discover the secret of drawing anime charcters. There is a lot to learn and a lot to practise and some expensive investments to be made. For 2016 I will continue to practise, try differnt style and techuniques learn what people want to see. Hopefully things are going well and I'll produce at least one image which people will like and consider me for commissions by the end of the year.
Happy New Year to all of you!
