One year ago… (Carrot Month, Sketchfolio #6, and Twitter)

by
Carrot Month


One year (and a few weeks) was the start of Carrot Month. And it’s thanks to that month that I was sent on the path of game design and exploring a bunch of other artistic interests!

• Because of that month I’ve got a little thriving Discord Community set up for my patreons.
• Because of that month I’ve pursued youtube content.
• Because of that month I’ve made a small game, which has paved the way for my current endeavor, The Forest of Love.
• Because of that month, I’ve dived into merchandising and figured out the ins and outs of that process.

AND PROBABLY MORE STUFF that I’m forgetting! But I’m SUPER happy with all the content and progress I’ve made over this last year. I’m super grateful for the opportunity provided by all of you, and I’m very glad I was introspective enough to realize that I needed to make a leap.

THOUGH we’re a couple weeks into August, I’d like to make the month of august a little annual sorta “Celebration”! A month to encourage and give a reason to just GO FOR IT. Whatever it is you’ve been putting off, it’s time to buckle down and just hop to it!

I’ll deem the celebration, Carrot Month! A month dedicated to your personal growth and finally pursuing something you’ve been meaning to.

I’m doing 2 things for Carrot Month this month.

1) Working on anatomical muscle group studies! Particularly the arms/legs/back muscle groupings! I’ve put this off for years, and it’s finally time I bite the bullet and give muscles the proper study they deserve.

2) I’m going to finally make a huge push to pay off one of my big student loans. By the end of the year I’d like to pay off the total of $5,831.76. Of course I still have other loans, but having this off my plate would be nice. Over the past several years, I’ve pecked it down from 13k, so this smaller number feels much more achievable to kill off.

I’ve already been pursuing the 1st one, but for the 2nd – I’m going to start with another Sketchfolio Release! This one’s a BIT different, in that, it’s not super focused on unfinished sketches, but instead, finished work I have yet to post. BUT, since I don’t plan on becoming a paywall (and also since I’ve been a shit-ass with posting recently) – I will be also releasing A FLOOD today of smut. Expect around 10-15 images. Sorry not sorry.

New Sketchfolio!


Regarding the “Sketchfolio” – As always it’ll be 2$ Minimum PWYW! The suggested value will be 5$. All the funds to this folio will go DIRECTLY toward my student loans, and I will be updating the progress as times goes on. I know I won’t make 6k~ from this folio alone, but it’ll be cool to see how much you guys take a dent out of that!

I will also include a TIERED RAFFLE with this sketchfolio purchase. Here is how it’ll break down.

There will be 3 Prizes that will be raffled off.
- The 5$ Tier – which will receive a 1 character sketch of their choice.
- The 10$ Tier – which will receive a 2 character sketch of their choice.
- And a 20$ Tier – which will receive a 2 character colored image of their choice.
• The amount you pay will automatically enter you to these raffles. If you buy the sketchfolio for <5$ you WILL NOT qualify for the raffle.
• You will be eligible for EACH raffle if you’ve qualified for it. (paying 20$ gets you into the color raffle, and also the 5$ and 10$ raffles)
• I doubt this will happen, but you can win more than one raffle. IF this happens, I’ll probably re-raffle and just increase the amount of prizes. I’m willing to take those chances =)
Raffle will end on the 31st of August. The sketchfolios will still be available for purchase.
RAFFLE WINNERS WILL BE CONTACTED VIA THEIR EMAIL. E-junkie sends the content to an email address that you provide. So I will be using that to contact you if you’re the winner. I will not be posting the information publicly for obvious reasons! IF winners do not respond within 3 days, I will raffle again.

AIGHT enough about that, check it out here!

ALL ON GUMROAD YEAH BABY!

Twitter Plug


Though I’m still not 100% sure I will migrate to Twitter, I figure it’s a good idea to let people know where else they can find me. I may start to post on twitter simply because it’s an easy format to post-and-forget. Not necessary to tag or title or blah blah. SO we’ll see. For now you can follow here. When I pursue this more, I will do a sketchraffle promo to get the word out faster.

Till then! Follow me here! https://twitter.com/CarrotsCritters

Retweet my cute sticker post! https://twitter.com/CarrotsCritters/status/116251925819...

OK THAT’S IT


If you’re still reading, I’m actually really curious if you plan on doing anything for Carrot Month! What’s something you should be doing that you keep putting off? What path would you like to get started on? =)

Eee, congrats on your art and game progress and best of luck paying down that loan!!! :O You can do it!! I'll totally snag that sketch pack too!! :}}}

Since DenFur I have been doing daily, more serious art study, in particular on color and light since I'm not very confident there!! Also buckling down on more efficient/responsible workflow in general since I have a lot of unfinished commitments that I keep neglecting due to new commitments. <.<

OH MY GOSH!!! GRAT CARROT!!!, you are doing a huge path on your artist way!!!, Now I know more deeply, about those muscle studies you were doing one of your last streaming, I need to say, when you sketch muscle, or random objects, is always something amazing, because look so details, so real!!!, you really know how to pick, and draw the right lines, and details for something look, super realist!!.

1 year from the start of this journal? that is something to celebrate!!!, you are giving too much effort, sweat, tears, blood, and dedication, and I will be forever grateful for you, YOU ARE AWESOME!!! remember that.

My best wishes to you!!!, I send you a hug ( I don't know if you are comfortable with hugs, in my mother country, is a sign to happiness and gratefulness) with my best wishes, for this month, and the rest of the years will be simply the best to you, and all your goal come to a reality

Ps: sorry for my bad English and for a long text

I still remember, when I read all your journal, all your help, all your stories, and studies you made, help me a lot to give me the right inspiration to keep it up!!, you are someone to get inspiration and motivation, and totally a role model to me.
I'm super grateful for all the time you spend in your projects, all the time you spend in your youtube videos, in the journals, in the help, and in spend time with us, helping us, and giving the change to spend time with you, listen to you, and have a good time!!!!. YOU ARE COOL!!!

Again gratz for your art and game progress, your words are so beautiful, I always could listen you say it, and listen to the gratefull of your voice. You can pay those loads!!!! You can do it!!!

you are welcome, thank you, for taking your time in reading my comment, and for everything you had done for everyone.
You are awesome!!! ♥♥

About your question, In my art journey, I will totally work harder to be better with my work time, and dedicate more time to my artwork, especially with the shade, lights and study objects in generall.
And in my work area, I need to study more about to be a good manager and think more deeper about my second job as a Freelance graphic designer.

Thank, I need to take one of my free day at work, in thinking more about my time and start to do some schedule to organize better all my time and works.
And I will definitely study more objects, sometime, take me forever to understand how some material works

Nice. Had a student lone of about $10,000 to pay off years ago for drafting. It was a mixed bag of skills for that I picked up. But again, that was years ago, and sadly not done much of anything drafting related after.

Enough about that very old news.

Humm. That $20 raffle looks so tempting.

Ok, et is done. Under the PP UN gray.form76. And raffle info linked to my AOL glenfoxh. ^.^

Also looking forward to seeing more of what you and Vixel does on TFOL.

The Month idea reminds me of a lot of things I need to get done, or more done with. One is to turn in some Unity code info over to Vixel, once I find my info and get it converted from DarkBasic Pro code into Unity's C#. Damn, I'm so behind on things. >.<
