Hello everyone, long time no see! I hope everybody had a good Christmas/other holiday. Anyway, we're on the cusp of a new year. 2016 was bizarre at best, but we must look to the future! Speaking of which, 2017 WILL be the year I get serious. Here's what I'm hoping to get off the ground.
I've been wanting to do this for a long while, since my current name here doesn't exactly roll off the tongue very well. The name's already been made, and as soon as I can I'll rebrand myself as "Cucoolander" across everything that I'm on! However, I won't be able to do that here until I get a membership for this site, and quite frankly it's not my first priority to buy one. It will be awhile before this account is renamed, but everything else will easily be changed. So yeah, Cucoolander will be coming soon! Speaking of which...
Cucoolander: The YouTube Channel
The content I want to put on this channel has been finalized! Animation, reviews, and animated vlogs will be the focus of this channel, plus the possible podcast if the cards are right. As for games, well that'll be relegated to a second channel as I don't want that to become the main course. I am planning to take on YouTube full time for at least awhile, and I don't feel my hobby should become a part of my job. So yeah, look forward to that!
Silver Blade progress
I'll be honest, I haven't been working on this for quite some time. I will get back to it, but it'll be awhile before I can finally feel confident enough to post the final product. Trust me, this WILL get done. I'm also thinking about changing the name, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there. However, I will be posting my progress here, character sheets, backgrounds, etc. At least that should be enough for now, right?
I am planning on doing small side projects on the side, one of which will be based off my experiences in FFXIV. Trust me when I say I love that game to death, and I want to express that sentiment! It has its own Tumblr blog and will be posted there first, but after it's posted the current comic will end up here and on my art Twitter. I should be starting it in January. Also, I might get back into OCTs. Might...
Just a heads-up, my art Twitter will be replacing the current one I have linked so that y'all can follow what I draw from there! My personal one has gotten too far along to post anything there, so that one serve as the sole home for all my art as well as give updates to my YouTube channel! My art Tumblr will also receive a face-lift...
Commissions and Jobs
Bad news: Still don't have a job. Good news: I will try opening up commissions. If and when they do open, I'm thinking about having a flat rate of $5 as a starting point. Keep in mind, that once my skill increases and more people start to order, I will create separate prices for different types of commissions. Line art will always be $5 if not lower. Now if only I had the gall to open a PayPal...
Last, but not least, I want to declare something. That throughout 2017, I will be more active, posting more art, creating more content, and getting what I want to get done officially off the ground! That is all. Look forward to it.
Anyway, have a good rest of the year, a great 2017, and I hope to see y'all on the flipside!
(Also, slight change in the name. I ain't gonna call myself "Cucoolander", that's my brand!)
