2+ Years And A Break

Posted by hibbyjibby 5 months ago

 

Probably should've written this back in March-April when it was more accurately 2 years of drawing, but better late than never.

It's been 2 years since I started drawing, and I'm painfully aware I still got tons to learn. Backgrounds, more dynamic poses/angles, figuring out soft shading a bit more, etc. That said, it's been a real fun 2 years with all its ups and downs, with art and in real life. With that said though, I have a bit of a plan to announce (for all five of you that read this); I'm gonna take a break.

Now by break I mostly mean an opportunity to relax. I already draw what I like, but I admit occasionally what some people'd prefer sometimes affects a few details. And while this isn't unique to me, I have that feeling of NEEDING to draw each day and week, to produce something more like out of necessity versus this being a hobby, which it ultimately is and should remain as such. Also partly why I'll probably continue to avoid comms as, while cash is good, it's not fun feeling like I have a deadline, and to put it bluntly I find most people's ideas to be really boring due to subject matter, or who they wanna see involved. That and I get the feeling I wouldn't gel quite well with some of the 'softer' people here.

So for the sake of my own interests, for the next three months or so, I'm gonna draw whatever I like, WITHOUT feeling the need to quite fit into Eka's preference for vore. You'll still see that every so often, I haven't forgotten what I like nor the ideas I have for some characters. But I really enjoy encasement, vacbeds, I want to focus on BDSM in general more often as that's my main kink/fetish, and maybe experiment with other types of tools. Learn how to use something other than just a gel pen for everything I make from lines to highlights. I may just be a hobbyist drawing a niche version of an already niche fetish, but I still wanna grow and improve as one.

I'm still really unsure about posting my non-vore, more 'experimental' or even casual images like vacbeds, pinups, bust shots etc. Encasement I don't feel as iffy posting after getting decent reception on 2 images involving it, but for other content I'd rather have a pixiv or something else to post on. A more appropriate platform essentially.


So if you've read the whole damn thing, then thanks for that and here's hoping the last 2 years weren't spent in vain, that the next 2 years'll be even more worthwhile, and that the next three months or so of more personal ideas/projects that people like 'em, and that they have some good results and experimentation. Atleast one of the two, hopefully.

As a general rule, the more you draw what you are personally interested in, the more you'll attract people interested in the same things, or even make people interested who previously weren't. Nothin' wrong with just doing what you want to do.

Ain't that the truth. I got friends that're starting to be more open to latex, encasement, bondage, and stuff in general. That said I still it's more appropriate to post relevant images and kinks to specific sites, but maybe that's just a personal, mental blockage I gotta move past someday

I wonder who could it be that is getting into latex as of late. It doesn't sound like a bad idea for the unusual change of phase.

I can tell you right off the bat, it's more than just 1 person now

I think the general rule is that your gallery should be at least 50% vore. Seem to remember reading Eka saying that somewhere. But yeah, it shouldn't be a huge issue if you start posting a bit more of your other stuff.

If it's an unspoken rule, then I sure didn't know ahead of time though makes sense. And if it IS written well, maybe gotta read more often.

In the end I like to think I've done enough vore content for the last 2 years, and more in the future. So alright, guess I'll look through some of the old junk I saved and see what's worth salvaging/posting

Yeah, you should probably be good I imagine.

I agree with Humbug.

In my case, latex, high platform heels and bodysuits/skin-tight clothing have always been prime favourites of mine. Seeing them paired with vore was rare until you came around and quite frankly, I've always looked forward to whenever and whatever you uploaded.

Ink what you love (I'd surely love it too!), don't be afraid to post - there's way more niche stuff here than BDSM and I feel there's a lack of what you post. If it bothers someone, always remember, it's their problem.

Have a good break :D

Well I'm very glad you like the junk I put out, and maybe I am a bit self-critical of my stuff because sometimes I should be able to do more, better. King-tier taste if you're into latex, heels n' full coverage now

I suppose it can't hurt to post the stuff I do over this 3 month period, originally was just gonna be vore and encasement stuff. I have some older stuff as well, which might take awhile to get comfy with showing it, but it can't hurt right? Just gotta get used to the idea

I appreciate the input, JoBro. I'm already somewhat niche, so what the heck. Guess I oughta keep at it
