All that Ends Well by Kenthayle All that Ends Well by Kenthayle

It's the end of the year and the end of my 365 project! I made it! :dance: If you have been following my tumblr from the beginning of this project, you may remember that I drew myself with the Blue Pinstriped Suit and tommygun on January 1 [link] , so it seemed fitting to end with it as well... along with a few of the more commonly drawn elements from this past year. I wish I could have included them all, I really do. But at least we break up the Transformers here with some Star Trek (you are welcome, Ensign Jillian ;) ), since I know someone was hoping for more of that this year than there ended up being.

Thank you everyone for hanging with me through this whole year, those who were here before and those who came along partway. You have all kept me inspired and motivated me with comments and fun dialogue. Shout out to :iconphoenixys: for inspiring me to do this project in the first place! Lady knows how to motivate me :XD:

Special thankses especially to :iconty-chou:, who is about as lovely as a person can get and feeds my every obsession with quality chat-times, inspiring a huge chunk of these dailies with her awesome. To :iconladyleyn:, for some serious fun geeking out and creative artsy inspiration. Also to :iconthe-starhorse: for her beautiful paintings and hilarious photocomics which have been in large part responsible for the huge horde of plastic minions currently inhabiting my apartment, all of whom I love dearly. Thanks from myself and Red Alert to :iconnagi-oki: for making the lovely hula skirt (which he treasures to the point of asking me to have it dry cleaned). And to so many others that would take too long to name. If we have spoken in comments or notes, if we have drawn each other's characters, if even you have come by and laughed and enjoyed my silliness, thank you from my whole heart. You have helped this be possible for me.

So now that I will no longer be drawing a sketch a day... what will happen? Well, I will still aim to draw and doodle every day, but next year I want to work on improving my colouring skills. I want to explore painting again and other traditional art forms, and re-learn how to ink. In general, create more finished and polished pieces. I certainly have a lot of sketches with which to practice ;)

And... I want to still do "Off the Shelf" sketches at least once a week. And more photocomics. So no, I'm not going anywhere :D

Have a Happy New Year! Kisses for all of you! :kiss: :love:


Transformers belong to Hastak, Star Trek to Gene Roddenberry.
Blitzangel belongs to *Ty-Chou
All other characters belong to me. Actually, more the other way around now...

Happy New Years!

Wow, you did the 365! That's hard work! I don't think I could keep up with that, I'm shooting for posting one picture a week (what photo skills I did have, have slid down hill...need practice!). I sooo look forward to more awesomeness from you! :D
