Been a while since I've made any sort of journal entry and communicated with watchers as a whole other than comments here and there on deviations.
Lately I've just been doing whatever I can in my free time from work but have been curious what those that watch me enjoy seeing in their feed from me.
The following is a large rant about my time here on DA and some thoughts. TL : DR version further below:
When I first started this account back in 2012 I was just graduating college and settling into drawing as a hobby. I created this account to draw peril situations from video games I played at the time and thought, "Man, this would be a great character tied up or something. Too bad it didn't happen in game... but now it can!" At the time I was just getting into the Tales Of series and drew my first deviation featuring a character in an alternative outfit tied up with their own gear/weapon. Immediately after I drew an OC that I typically drew during earlier fetish drawings that will never see the light of day (Or will if the select few I showed posted them) and drew a series of images featuring her.
A few commission for points to get what was known as Premium back in earlier DA days I returned to drawing fan art of Dark Cloud 2 (one of my favorite games of all time) and Muramasa. A few art trades and a one time kiriban image I dove into creating a large amount of OCs all related to Mira and a concept called "Tie-breakers."
Over the course of my account I have moved away from Fan Art and video game drawings in favor of drawing characters that people may not even be familiar with for a majority of my gallery. Little to no story information on them has been set up in my gallery despite their constant featuring (with brief snipits connecting images if you can even count that.)
Then there was the time I was a member of HeartGears 101 Knight's project that featured RP and drawings of the characters. It was a fun project but that tug to return to Fan Art from games I've been playing recently sprung up again and I chose to do a few things for that including the hype image for Persona 5, a series of peril comics of my Dark Souls 3 character (can be found on my tumblr), and Fatal Frame 4 which I still haven't figured out how to play again...
At the end of 2016 I did a 30 day challenge mostly featuring the Tie-breaker character's in various situations they would normally find themselves in. It was a fun experiment to do something each day and created a lot of conversations. Afterwards I took on a chunk of commissions that took up a good majority of my time after work and my schedule got to the point where I couldn't release things with the quality the commissioners deserved and I closed them.
Now, I launched into another sort of exercise similar to the 30 day challenge where I was creating comic pages. The original goal was to create about 50 comic pages in the Ankhrono Origin Story for my main OC Mira Khrono. I'm on page 6 as of right now but feel I should work on a bit more of my art skills again since a lot of my content has sort of stagnated in terms of progress. Overall, the changes between 2012 and 2017 are leaps and bounds ahead of where I started; however, I feel like I need to push myself again to become even better.
TL : DR - I'm wondering what people would like to see in the future. I created this account to draw peril situations, cute girls, and make creative perils where media didn't take the opportunity when it could have.
Do people want to see more fan art? Create more for the Tie-Breakers? Do a small bout of requests? I don't have core or anything so polls are not a thing, but I am curious to see what people think. Comment below if you'd like even if it is just saying 'hi.' Feel free to ask me any questions about myself, my art, the Tie-breakers, or whatever.
Fun fact: My name, Ankhrono is actually Ankh, the ancient Egyptian symbol for life, and Chrono, relating to time. Mushed together it creates Ankhrono, or Life/Time, Lifetime. Mira's artifact controls life and time be resetting her mistakes, so I found it oddly fitting. I totally made it because of Kidetic's username being the mix of kidnapper/detective/tickler.
Minor Update: Been a little busy, but posted some things on my tumblr...
