I have started to compile a list of characters and designs that I would like to bring to life in 2017. Most of them are characters from the Shin Megami Tensei series, as it is one of my all-time favorites. One of my goals is to reach out to and interact with other fans of the franchise with my work. I know this other goal is a stretch since I am a small-time artist at the moment, but I am also hoping that the creation of these pieces will help encourage developers to bring more games, manga, light novels, and other forms of media over to the West that have yet to be released.
Other than that, I mainly just want to have fun with my work in the new year. I will be making an effort to post new work as often as I can, but it also depends on the size of the project that I am working on at a particular point in time. Some pieces can be made in a couple of days, while other pieces could take up to a month to make. I also plan to continue to photograph most of my work out in nature. I feel that the natural setting makes a difference in presentation, and so far, I am really happy with the end results of the pieces I have made in the last couple of months.
Luckily for me, there are a lot of parks within reasonable driving distance. So, I essentially have an infinite amount of possibilities when setting up an outdoor photoshoot. Everything I have photographed in the last couple of months was done in my back yard. The changing of the seasons throughout the year also opens up new possibilities with these photoshoots. Needless to say, I am really excited and can already tell that 2017 is going to be a fantastic year.
