I figured it was time to make an update journal, since the last one was over a year ago.
I was fiddling with the idea of restarting the Original Character Challenge, but I've decided it was easier just to start from scratch. A lot of my characters need to be revamped or redesigned. Many of them just need to be scrapped. School is starting soon, so I doubt I'll start it soon. Still, I have ideas. Turn all my Mario fan characters from humans into Paper Mario-esque partners or NPC roles; remove all of my Pokemon characters except for one; switch some fan characters around to different fan communities or original projects; that sort of thing. I'm also cutting some projects I no longer hold interest in.
I'm giving up on the 100 Art Challenge. I didn't draw it the first time, and I highly doubt I'm going to do anything with it.
I'm attempting another close-friend Christmas gift set, but that's only if I have enough time.
I'm going to do a little spring cleaning with groups and art. I'm also going to do a large overhaul of my DA profile, so expect things to be a little clunky in the coming months.
Aside from that, just expect sporadic stories and Animal Crossing related fanart.
