Oasis Life Prologue 01
For newer watcher's information, I looked to start a comic series some time back. Did not really go anywhere beyond the first half of a page, which you can see here. I have finally gotten around to updating the second half of the page as well, and the full page is updated.

These things are hugely time consuming and I don't know how often I can continue them. Just completing it took me way outside my weekly allocated time for paints, and even then at a lower quality. (Note that the first attempt each panel was its own environment piece I could spent 2-3 weeks on. The first half of the page took close to 6 weeks total to finish. Comics in general are always hard for me, due to layout, character designs, preserving environment layout and color, text and speech bubbles...yeah.

I updated this piece since it was part of my current weekly experiments to push and see how much i can accomplish within my allocated time frames. I won't be touching this in awhile, and the next page, while i have detailed in linework already, will not be done anytime soon.

But i do intend to get to them over time. Future updates will have links to pages etc

2016 was pretty trying for me. I had to unlearn lots of student habits after stepping into the working world. Painting being one of the first to take a hit. 

I was not very happy, overall the experience was a good one...but over the past months something ached so badly I wanted to go somewhere to scream. Painting is something that built me up, I will never stop doing it. One day I will make it something I do, warm and cozy in a small room, but that day is not here yet. That does not mean I cant start preparing for it nevertheless.

So here's what my watchers (if any of you are still around after my 2016 black out) can expect.

I will be back to updating on a per week basis. Namely I will be doing 3 different painterly things as a test to myself, primarily whether or not i can keep up this resolution. Every Thurs, Friday, Saturday expect to see updates. Even if they are small ones. A large painting might come out once every two weeks, or it might take longer. The fact of the matter is my job comes first, and supporting my family comes first. Slowly I hope to build up these 3 projects into viable side revenues options that I can turn to in the future.

Here's to a new year of successful resolutions and new opportunities opened.

Heyo, I'm not the biggest MLP:FiM fan (I grew up playing with the Gen 3 MLP figurines haha) but I do love fan art of it sometimes and discover some fan songs here and there, like Lullaby for a Princess... I was just relistening to it today, decided to search it up on Youtube to see if it was animated and there it was - you were the background artist!! :O Beautiful work, the whole thing!

Also I'm most pleasantly surprised that you're a fellow Singaporean like me :XD: It's locals like you who spur me on to keep doing what I'm doing! :dummy: I'm currently a year 3 TP graphic design student, though I have zero passion for graphic design really... it was more like my parents didn't have faith in the local animation/game industries, so they got me to study that instead... which I regretted listening to them for. :( Got quite depressed in my first year, hah. I'm going to pursue Animation at uni (likely Lasalle), and then find my way into the videogame industry. (people reccommend that Digipen would be a better choice for me, but I feel that studying Animation opens me up to actual TV/internet animation jobs too if I can't land a job in the game industry)

Whoops, that was way longer than I wanted to type ^^; You've just earned yourself a new watcher! :)

Perseverance is one of the most important aspects in any creative work! I'm glad that lullaby was able to give you the inspiration to keep going, god knows I had my own share of inspiring artists pushing me onward as well ^^

Hey,
I thought i would say hi since its been a while. I finally got married in September and had to stop drawing for a minute, but since i came back i thought about doing a production intro, i think its call that or something, and u finished the rough and is now cleaning the lines. Wish i could show you maybe somedays. I've been so afraid of showing my work lately cause of the bad past here on d.a. (shrugs) but every now and again, i look back on your videos of your last project and learn, woshed you had more but really i wish i could meet you someday and hang out and share, but idk who knows but it would be cool. Ill talk to you again sometime and ill try and be brave and post my onto when all finished. Bye till last or anytime if you like to talk sometime.
