Yep, I've returned with another Update journal. I guess these are a bit more rare now that my Public To-Do List is easily accessible to everyone rather than me spamming those of you who I owe artworks to with Mentions in journals.
Anyway, I did wish to briefly explain why I have been swinging between active and inactive since the end of last year. I've been having quite a bit of trouble externally (which I won't go into detail about) and with this trouble, well, it's physically difficult to deal with but not extremely serious, if that makes sense. Especially in recent weeks, I've been quite a bit busy offline which is why it may take me up to a couple of days to respond to a reply or a Note. Of course, this is also affecting my workflow on the owed artworks, so please just bear with me as I hope this will all calm down soon but unfortunately cannot make a promise on that. Even with the most predictable of circumstances, it's still a bit of a shock to realise that you predicted that scenario correctly. So, yes, I thank you for all your patience so far and very much appreciate your future understanding~
Hopefully, things will start to pick up the pace and be completed soon.
On a more positive note, I do like seeing that you all have been viewing my Public To-Do List. After all, that's why it was created in the first place; to see how much progress has been made on any artworks I owe you. However, just as a heads-up, I do not have a schedule in place for when that To-Do List is updated. It could very well be up to a fortnight before it's updated again, but rest assured that there has been progress made within that fortnight.
Also on the topic of (specifically) the requests, I will be cancelling two of them as the user's account is currently inactive, I have been unable to locate their newest account thus far, and - more importantly - I no longer have access to their characters' references as the account they made the original requests with is now deactivated.
Sometime this weekend (like Saturday), I'll be scheduling an update on my Facebook Page (if the link doesn't work on this journal, just click the Facebook button on my profile and it'll take you there) for a partial screenshot of every request I have currently sketched out or outlined (NiagraFalls, xXxJolinexXx, Lulu-Night, JosephKotioTheCat, LavendertownGhost00, SesshaXIII and kreazea; you all might be interested in checking them out), except for two of daisyrosalina00's as I have already uploaded previews of those~
That's about all for now. I'll very likely have uploaded both of those personal artworks, the contest and prompt prizes, and a few surprises before the next Update journal, so those will all be things to look forward to!
Oh! This weekend I'm also going to post a journal promoting a special event for one of my friends, so stay tuned!
I didn't intend for the first half of this journal to sound that formal. Apologies, it feels like it's been a long while since I last typed out an Update journal even though it's been a month-and-a-bit since the last one was posted.
