So it's been forever since I've been on here! To update those who still follow me on DevArt:
I have more or less decided that posting on non social media platforms such as DevArt is not a beneficial use of time anymore and to focus my priorities on social media platforms like tumblr, instagram, twitter, pintrest, etc. So please feel free to follow me on my social media accounts above if you wish to continue seeing more artwork from me!
In other news, it has been just over 3 months since I made the decision to drop out of animation school. This may come as a surprise considering how hard I worked to get into animation school in the first place. However, rest assured the decision was inevitable. Being in animation school quickly taught me that I do not enjoy the actual act of animating itself. On the contrary, I seem to enjoy telling stories with still images rather than making them move. Hence, I have decided to attempt creating my first webcomic!
Of course I have not just given up trying to learn and improve as an artist and as a person. I have started to take classes online with industry professionals at a fraction of the cost of what I was paying to go to animation school (while also learning infinitely more in a short period of time). In addition, I have also started a painting mentorship with a well known painter in Toronto. My goal is to really get a good handle on traditional painting then move into digital painting with confidence.
On top of all of that I have been working a part-time job as a merchandiser while also working as a TA in Training at the Animation Portfolio Workshop for another year.
All in all, I've been pretty busy! It's been a crazy ride and I can't wait to see where I am in a years time!
I hope you are all doing well and that you'll keep following me on this journey~Crukie
