First of all, hope you all had a Happy Holidays and I wish you a prosperous New Year! I'll cherish all the wonderful memories I've had in 2016. It's been a wild ride. Let's hope 2017 will be good to us all. Here's to 2017 and moving forward.
I've Been Busy
Hey everyone, this is just an update about what I've currently been up to and why I haven't been submitting much Fakemon and personal art lately. Other than commissions, I'm currently involved in several game projects and making artwork for them. It's exciting. I've been designing characters and creatures for various games. It's a lot of work but it's the start of a dream that I've always wanted to do. And I'm so thankful to be involved with this projects.
So, what projects am I involved in?
Breeze In The Clouds
Almost 2 years ago, I was asked to design some monsters for a game called Breeze In The Clouds. It's an action-adventure game where the hero is a corgi! It sounded so cool and I'm happy to have designed some enemies for the game. The game is still in developement and so far it looks like it's coming along great. Check out the website for more details!
I've also been making some monster characters for another card game project in the past year or so. It's going slow at the moment as the team of the project is currently making changes with their brand. Then around mid 2016, I've been contacted to work as a character designer for a children's learning game. It's been fun working with the game and designing the characters, as well as creating graphics for the game. The game is still in developement and I don't think I can say much but it is turning out very well. Hopefully I can share more details about it in the future!
And recently, I've been offered a proposition to design and create artwork of monsters for another project, similar to Pokémon. I don't know if I can share much details, yet, but I'll keep you guys updated when I can!
These are all the projects I am currently working on, as well as some personal side projects. So yeah, I have been very busy! I haven't had much time to do my own personal artworks but I'll try to get some done soon. I still have quite a few commissions left to finished.
Many projects, many thanks
Though I am involved with many projects, I am thankful to be involved in working with them! They may not be 'big' game projects by 'big' companies, but it's a start in the direction of my art dream I am leaning towards to. I'm just grateful for the oppurtunities I get to work on these projects. If you ever get an oppurtunity, I say take it. Every oppurtunity is an experience.
What to expect in 2017
Well, I definitely need to submit the rest of my Fakemon so I can go on and work on another side project of mine. I do want to work on more personal artwork, but I feel like I need to practice and study more and experiment with different techniques and mediums.
Oh, and I do plan to announce a special project sometime in the summer. It's a project that I've been secretly working on for two (or more) years now.
Other than that, I really don't know what else, haha. Just stay tuned for future updates!
That's all for now, thanks for reading and happy New Year! ☺
