Here's the GCAP2017 talk recording:
Who is it useful for?
It’s heavily artist focused for those wanting to design and create characters but anyone could find it useful - there’s a lot of creative philosophy & a few additional personal lessons I’ve put in there.
Well I hope it's useful for someone out there :')
The suggested $5 donation is just a guess, I don't know. ;(
Yes this was all hard work but I learned and gained a lot from doing it already.
From the beginning, I did not intend to get money out of this. Don't worry.
Not that I actually expect it, but Paypal donations direct to my gmail if you must? I don't know how well itch.io payment works.
It'll probably go towards making stickers to give out to people I talk to in the future? Spending money for happy art stuff as I'm usually frugal about that? I don't want to expect anything here haha
Gosh it's too hard to price this booklet! I give up figuring monetary "value" for this, I don't feel comfortable "selling" it and it wasn't my plan to anyway. Plus I want to make this as accessible as possible and I'll leave it up to you whether you want to donate or not.
I am genuinely happy if you just found it useful.
And super grateful if you decide to share the itch.io link around. ❤
And melt into a puddle of heart felt feelings if anyone actually decides to donate anything. In the .0000001% chance it happens, I'll just end up reacting in emojis because I'm out of words haha
The slides & bonus content are done!! Hooray!!
I want to curl up into a ball and never look at this pdf again! :')
I proofread them thoroughly 3-4 times [each time taking a handful of days] and countless times more on top whenever I had to take notes, cut out content, rehearse for my talks or proofread from the start all over again.
I'm...so...tired. So tired. I want to move on.
But I'm so happy I am getting this out there finally. I feel relieved. And nervous now that people can judge what I've done. Uh oh.
Finally I can focus on making & learning art again for myself, draw fanart & doodle 27 left of 30 cats [yes still doing #MeowBurpDoodle studies] without worry for next year! Maybe I have some art to post but mostly I'll be hibernating from posting *regular* art and from doing commissions until whenever I'm ready next year (: That's why I've been quiet with posts.
My heart aches and longs to actually take it easy and eventually create for myself on a regular basis. And maybe collaborate on cool projects that interest or mean a lot to me.
That's my goal next year: keep learning and post regularly. The usual ;)
But I need a break to feel creatively energised again :(
I have decided to not continue my MeowFinders/Character Design Challenge attempt as something came up and I have things I need to dedicate my creative time on. I had to reprioritise and I do not want to overwork myself and juggle with too many things. But I will definitely provide my time and feedback on your submissions during early next year! The slides and content are out now so you have no excuses - deadline stays as 31st January 2018 [more details at this Challenge/Resource page] so do your best and post your progress!
Lastly for any further #CharDesignClub shenanigans, resources, showcasing your submissions & updates follow the dedicated twitter @CharDesignClub! (:
I'll stop posting about it on my personal/art social media channels so you don't have to follow me directly!
If you're still hanging around, I appreciate and thank you ❤
Share my hard work around...please? :')
Okay virtual support & hugs are also welcome.
YES it's done!! ;___;
Gosh I'm taking a break now first before I check back here :<
