Long time, no post! Seriously long time of over a year. I kind of went through a bunch of stuff this past year, a lot of personal and artistic stuff, that made me quit posting and sharing my art. So yesterday, I decided to look at my old webcomics and art profiles that I abandoned a little over a year ago, and found out that people kept looking at my art, and consistently looking for new comic updates. First of all I felt mortified, because people were looking at, liking, favoriting, and reading my horrible creations from when I was in the 6th grade, up until about last year when I gave up. I couldn't remember why I gave up making art and comics and posting online, other than I felt like everything I made was garbage. I have an excess of awesome ideas, including ways to improve my old comics. I kind of felt like I was at an artistic and emotional standstill, and I needed to shut off my mind and retract so that I can decide what I want to do with my life and art. After a long amount of thinking I finally figured out what I wanted.
I've been using the name Shrone and Shroneseravena for a long time, since middle school, and I have tried and failed at so many different projects, trying to figure out the best way to present a story visually, and to work on character development and world building. The hardest part of this learning process has been the fact that I always felt like everything I did was garbage and that there was so much more that I could do, and so many ways I could improve.
Therefore after a year of self-evaluation, practice, and trying to learn to love my artwork, I came to the conclusion that I needed to start over with a clean slate. (With the exception of rebooting my old comics that still have a weird following for those. And one Deviantart I will be readding all of my old faves.) So I've started new accounts under Blondelobot and Mariella Ribbons and posting the following as my bio:
Hi! I was formally known as Shrone/shroneseravena (on deviantart, smackjeeves, and tapastic). Accounts that I had since middle school, mortify me because of the wide range of horrible artwork, and made me feel like I wasn't making any progress, and due to personal reasons, I kind of gave up on life and art. However I HAVE RETURNED!!!!!! (I plan on rebooting my old comics from my old smackjeeves account (A Real Haunt and Black, white, and gray) because I feel like I could do so much more with them) Also I decided that I wanted a fresh start, new adventures and such, with a new name and new profiles, so the following is all of my new profiles and such! (Below that I will provide all of my old stuff, for those who are curious)
