And that’s it! Happy New Year!
I’m pretty pleased with Free! Advent Calendar overall. I don’t like every single thing I drew for it, but there are a lot of pieces I’m pretty proud of.
It was a great challenge because a vast majority of what I wanted to draw involved two or more characters, and drawing characters interacting (or honestly, even just standing next to each other) has been a weak point of mine for a long time. Even though a lot of the interaction/proximity ended up being between chibi characters, it was still forcing me to do new things.
I also ended up drawing a lot more backgrounds than usual, even if a lot of them were, again, rather simple. I always queue work for this sketchblog, but the level of finesse for almost all advent pieces was higher than my normal sketches, so keeping up with daily pieces was also a challenge.
So yeah, that was fun. :> Here’s to a new year.
I had wanted to get the first chapter of my band AU fic ready to post by January 1st, so it’d be a neat hand off from one Free! project to another, but it isn’t ready yet. I’ll shoot for the 15th for now, but sooner if I can manage it. It’ll be on FFN and AO3, but I’ll probably still mention updates here.
…Man, what the hell has Free! done to my life. .___.
