Improvement meme 2008-2014 by noctnoku
Improvement meme 2008-2014
'Talent = Passion + hardwork (+ motivation??)'
You know that feeling when you try to care about something > end up caring about it too much > Stress over it > Decided 'screw this' > And gave up caring about it?

That pretty much sums up 2014 for me.
More or less...

2014 brought huge changes. Made some friends, lost some friends, got together with my girlfriend... After a while, I learnt to stop caring too much about the things that bothered me and just took things in my own stride. I stopped fretting over school (currently heading into my last term in polytechnic... Screw physical chem tho), stopped letting my insecurity about my future affect me (might be attributed to the fact that I'm currently on holiday and /away/ from school, therefore I have nothing to remind me of it), learnt to stop letting relationships affect me (and reminding myself that I am my own person and should not let my relationships with people rule my life or let it define me) and stopped comparing my improvement to others.

The last point though... After I stopped trying to improve to match people in the industry who have a lot more experience than me or even the artists I look up to, I feel more at ease with my work. Although there's lots to be done to regain the confidence I had in 2012. 

Ah well... I have 2015 to make up for the things I lack in 2014. Here's to a new year, new changes and new art works.

Noct's holiday commissions

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 21, 2013, 8:52 AM

First Freud of the new year! by noctnoku

Hey everyone! This is my first time doing commissions! I would like to get some extra practice over the school break so I thought I might as well give commissions a try! 

I’m planning to open three slots first to see how it goes. As soon as I finish a batch, I’ll open another three slots. Commissions are open from now till the 5th of January

Things I cannot/will not draw:

  • Gore
  • Mecha
  • Animals
  • Intimate nudity (Mild nudity is alright)

If you’re interested, please send an note!

Thank you very much! And have a nice holiday!
