<align = "center"> The WallHello fellow deviants! 
It's been a while since my last reflection; my work place recently changed to a longer schedule that has left me more exhausted than I care to admit. To those of you who commented on my previous journals and posts; I will try my hardest to get back to you!! 
Today, however, I'd like to focus on my thoughts regarding my first step into the world of comics. 
Since creating this account, I made a lot of art for various original series, but I feel that was a stage in my artistic career where I was both untested and inexperienced in what it meant to dedicate myself to a craft or to have a true purpose. I had lofty goals, but no skills; enthusiasm, but no sense of direction. My focus back then had been to raise awareness for my projects, without me actually working on the projects themselves. Character descriptions and maps were all I had to show for a comic (then manga) epic I had supposedly come up with. But there was no comic work behind my word

<align = "center"> CommitmentHello fellow deviants, 
I'm currently studying for a test I have to take on Friday, but there are some thoughts that have been troubling me lately. 
I've managed to continue drawing everyday for Inktober. However, looking at the number of Inktober drawings in general near the end of the month, there aren't as many as in the beginning. Some questions arose from this observation.
Why is it so difficult to draw for a month with ink? Why is it difficult to draw in general? 
I think I've been seeing a lot of this all over the art community, not just for Inktober. Artists make big claims or aim for lofty goals, but end up fizzling out in the end. I'm not judging them or anything; in fact, I've actually done the same this past year alone. I made four goals, and kept only one thus far. 
I made a goal to upload a piece a month, but that fell through. My reasoning: For the first four months, I was finishing up my undergraduate education. Afterwards, it was really h

You're a self absorbed poser. From what I've seen of your art, you have no right to lecture others. You want to be a legitimate content creator? Get your head out of your ass, cut the sanctimonious bullshit, and work hard. Stop assuming everyone cares about the opinion of a stuck up faux-manga artist with no professional experience, and no credibility in what he says. You can lecture others when you've taken the time and effort to learn how to be a proper artist an have grown out of being a huge immature douchebag.
