I've been almost a year (or more?) in hiatus due to time management problem, school, work, emotional problems, etc. Yes, I totally suck at managing my time and likes to slack off a lot, I'm not even serious about my drawings and deviantART or other social accounts I have. Though, I actually keep practicing this whole time by doodling and sketching on my school notes, the more doodles each school subject has, the more boring it is
I still draw a lot of stuff even on hiatus and I scanned or took pictures of them and keep them in my PC. I don't feel like sharing all of them on Facebook or other websites, so many of my friends think that I actually giving up on drawing.
Thankfully that's not true, because I already feel like drawing is a part of my life, it is my destiny, even many things happen to block me away from the drawing path. I can't stay away from it, I've been getting my own income from drawing since primary school and it helps me to pour out my heart and state my opinion without having to write or say it. Honestly, I'm not that good in verbal communication and I always get misunderstood or I misunderstand people a lot, haha!
I've been looking at my old gallery and see that I actually don't have any specific genre of the message I want to send by the drawings (or photo editing) I made in the past. The name AmelStrange is also used by other graphic artist who looks to be more successful than I, so I decided to not make everyone confused. I've been sticking lately to the name "Lika Ura", which pops up in my mind randomly. I did a research on Google
on the name and I got different meanings from different languages. I don't want to go through all the Lika Ura thing
so you can look at my Tumblr post for more details. likaura.tumblr.com/post/735321…
I want to change my username right away but then I need to wait for my bank account (the things I do for PayPal!) to open, hopefully next week is done. I don't want to open a new account because it's kinda complicated and I don't want to tell my watchers to move again
Oh yes, I forgot to mention I have a sub profile, which is
where I put my comics about my fictional character. So razorificus
is like my child
or parent brand if you say it in marketing term.
So here I am, back again! Thank you so much to wolvram
and Chocoreaper and my college friends who motivate me to take my drawing seriously and thank you very much for the watchers to still watch me when I'm gone
