Well, here's my first journal entry here. I haven't been too active around dA since joining. Even since getting 'active' by posting resources & graphics. However, lately I feel that I need a bit of a change in my life. Or more that I feel like something new is starting in my life. I'm not in school, but the season for the dance company I'm in really starts in September, since we have auditions at the end of August and also have an apprentice program with some high school students. But anyway, I just feel like I want to branch out and do other things, mostly for myself as an artist.
So I've joined a couple of more groups and even some forums, too. For years, I worked towards getting the top promotion on Shadowplay and now that I've finally got it, it feels like the beginning of something, not the end. Almost like it has now suddenly given me the confidence to try new things, to branch out and try to make more resources and feel decent about my graphics design. I always felt that because I only did signatures/blends/banners/icons/colourizations, I wasn't good at graphics at all. 'Cause the real stuff are manipulations, vectors, advertisements/posters, etc. in my opinion. But that doesn't mean I can't do those things. The others have just prepared me to, so I can. (:
So all in all, I'm really trying to get out there as an artist now and do more things for me and not just be an admin of a forum 24/7 when I'm online. So here's to new beginnings, everyone, whether you're going into university, getting a new job or taking a new turn in your life. *cheers*
