Happy new year everyone!
I hope you're going well and may 2014 bring you fame/happiness/health/a brand new Cintiq/more lamas
On my side, it will be a very busy year. I have planned several drawings projects, I think I'll try to produce another artbook for May like my last year's Colorless. I also plan a comics doujinshi for the end of the year. It'll be probably Kancolle related but artworks and comics are very different. It will be quite challenging
I also think 2014 will be the time for me to find a satisfying technique for colouring. I know a have still a lot of improvements to make in anatomy, dynamic poses and stuff but it's quite frustrating to be stucked with black, white and grey sometimes.
During my trip in Japan last December I also bought a bunch of drawing stuff (some good sketchpads, a good mechanical pencil with special F leads which don't exist in France, a plume and a bottle of ink) because today I am digital only. I love my Cintiq and my Surface Pro but when you can draw on a tablet but not on a paper with a pencil I think there is a problem >.<
I'm also planning to pass the Japanese-Language Proficiency Test(JLPT) N3 at the end of the year. I'll need to increase my kanjis and vocabulary base and learn a bunch of additional grammar forms. So yeah a lot of practice ahead XD
As I'm a computer engineer and I love programming, I have also several personal little projects (I plan a little Android application and I'm currently learning Ruby on Rails on my free time for those who are interested).
So yeah 2014 will be a busy year. It will be difficult, there will be tears, despair and deadlines but it's very motivating.
