I haven't written a proper journal in months. Mainly that has to do with the new page layout and my journals not staying there for a while. I like to think of these as news bites for visitors to my page so they know what's going on. Anyway, I'm working on a christmas picture then doing some references for a couple of new Oc's I've got but also Orlando
because I haven't done one for him yet. I also intend to get better at digital painting, so i'll be watching ALOT of tutorials on youtube on how to paint in photoshop (I can only get so far in paint tool sai). If anyone knows any good ones that go into detail could you let me know. That would be great.
So yeah that's the art aspect. Just going to throw this out there so people can understand why I take massive breaks from uploading every now and then. I've been going to therapy sessions for a few months now, something I've been trying to get for nearly three years, and I've spoken to a psychiatrist. I've been diagnosed with depression and i've been put on medication for it. The medication is helping alot with the suicidal thoughts I've been having and also feeling lethargic. I suspected I had depression for a long time but mental health diagnoses when you're a teenager are shit (they only started taking me seriously when I was having stressed induced hallucinations that caused panic attacks). I could go into a giant rant about how my government is shit and fucking up the NHS and blah blah blah, but I won't. I was just saying that to explain about my hiatuses. Depression is a pretty common problem these days and not enough people take it seriously. It is a real illness even if it isn't physical. Anyway update over. I'll get back to drawing
(Also I went to Insomnia 56 and met Jacksepticeye that was awesome XD
