Ooky Spookymonth by NightShadow154
Ooky Spookymonth
Anyone else listens to music while doing art stuff? Just me? Oh, well, happy Spookymonth, everyone! I can't tell you how many sketches it took me to get this little witch right.
It's almost Spookymonth and I have barely shared any drawings here. Shame on me, seriously :c
Gem Studies: Garnet by NightShadow154
Gem Studies: Garnet
I really wanted to do a Steven Universe themed drawing, but for some reason, and despite thinking she would be the easier gem to get right, Garnet proved to be one of the most challenging designs to me. The solution? Sketch the hell out of her! Here are my favorite sketches to come out of the madness.
It's been a while since I last did one of these, so expect a wall of text ahead.

First of all, I'd like to talk about my inactivity. Somewhere between December and March I started to feel like drawing just wasn't fun anymore and saw no point in doing it. As time went on I started to feel more and more depressed until I finally got that little spark of motivation going again, and so I started throwing little updates as I progressed with my work. I don't think something like this will happen again, but that's still a possibility, so please bear with me if it does.

Now that that's out of the way, I want to talk about content. Now, I know for a fact that many of you came from EQD and likely clicked that watch button expecting more pony art. Guys, I am no pony artist; I'm just a guy who likes drawing and just happens to like ponies too, so there's obviously going to be fanart along the way. Does this mean I'll stop doing pony art? Hell no! But it does mean that I will not be focusing on that at any point and will continue to draw whatever I feel like doing at the time, even if it gets a lot less attention.

And finally, I would like to thank everyone here for sticking with me despite everything that happened during this last few months. It's been tough and I've learned a lot about myself and what I want to do in that time, and now I feel really determined to achieve my goal of going to college and becoming a professional artist. Will it ever happen? I don't know, but I do know that drawing is what I love doing the most, and I will never give that up even if I don't succeed. Now, after sharing my thoughts here I really feel like doing some sketches, so I'll leave you guys here, Shadow signing off!
