Here’s my artwork for Aquabunny’s 13th anniversary event, and to celebrate this anniversary I shall say something out to Aquabunny.
Thank you for bringing joy to your fans and our favorite Pokémon, you gave the nido evolution line a reason to be loved and a reason to be favorited among others, your artwork and your characters alone are amazing and will always bring a smile to me and your other fans’ faces. Thank you for showing your art and your appreciation to our favorite evolution line.
lol well that didn't happen, now did it? 365 days later, and I'm still working on getting the new website ready. It feels like moving from one big house to another, but by yourself. There's so much stuff that you didn't realize you had that you have to pack up, and it takes forever because you don't have any friends or family to lend a hand or the funds to get some movers to assist you. On the other hand, oh, and the analogy is over, btw, it brings to the forefront just how much content this site has if it takes THIS long to move it all over. I'm not happy about having to leave the site dormant for months but being able to reflect on things as I'm reposting pictures in the new site's pages, with TAGS (hallelujah), gives me sort of a warm feeling. Well, I'll just keep doing what I can, huh?
A relatively quiet year full of things that apparently take a very long time to create and produce. I figured a sleepier year would best be represented by some sleeping Nidoran. The new website was supposed to come along this year, but there's been a lot of technical issues, and with it I've held myself back from posting a lot of content, too. It's still on the way, and hopefully it doesn't take another 365 days!
This year accomplished more than the last as far as I can tell, which is all I really wanted for the 10th year, and now, this December 13th, I can finally unveil my big event where for this birthday, I give gifts back to you (provided you do a little work for it first, of course). It's been many years since I've had a contest, and the only other one offered chibi plushies if I recall correctly. This time, though, I go all out by offering a variety of very cool and well made products, officially and from fans! Time to join the celebration!
Happy 11th Aqua Bunny :’3
It has been 10 wonderful years of the aquabunny site, congrats!!
I built up a lot of stuff this year... only for a lot of things to kinda go wrong. I say kinda because everything is only delayed as opposed to outright cancelled, but nevertheless, it was far more setbacks than I would have liked for a tenth year of a site. However, I did do a few things, like release that Christmas animation I mentioned a year ago (in the spring :P) and Pastel Poison, which is pretty cool. I'm also getting some help with some projects now, which is very very helpful and I'm definitely grateful for. So sure, year 10 didn't turn out the way I wanted, but I think 11 will more than make up for it. If year 10 was meant to get everything in place, then the stage is now set for action.
On December 13, 2015, Aqua Bunny lasted a whole nine years. And you know, that's technically an achievement but I need a little more than that. Or should I say I would have liked more. Now, I've got a Christmas season animation in the pipeline as of this writing which should give this year something a bit more solid, and Dumb Big Sister, Stupid Little Sister was an experiment that I really enjoyed, but a few things I wanted to get finished, didn't, and I'm not sure where that time went (well, some of it was admittingly DBSSLS). I worked on several, actually, animated skits and shorts but none of them are in a finished state (actually, some are but they're part of a larger production so I can't say anything about them :X). I know perfectionism is a problem for why those aren't getting out faster, but there's also a lot of time sacrifices and I can't just give up all my time to AB.
Anyway, here's what I want to do next year. Forget worrying about what's new, let me just get everything I started finished. And I mean all of the backlogged stuff with exceptions to Caremla's comic (that's dead, guys, for those of you who are still holding on), and Rhythmic Pop'n (which isn't dead, but I do have to set aside currently, at least until I get everything else done). I'm going to divide 2016 into quarters just to see how I do, and to know when to start things and have them wrapped up. To start, I want to have She's One of a Kind, Kine's current story finished by the end of the first three months, and hopefully beyond just that story too would be really nice. The Tumblr page is better these days, but I'm really out of stuff. I've been stretching this year because I said to myself "the new gallery doesn't get touched until 2016 at earliest", so perhaps in February or so, there'll be more fan art (mostly mine, yes) like the way it was. I don't know what else to do. I still want to do a catch all character Tumblr too, but I'll treat that more as a personal reward for getting stuff done here, first, so I dunno, someone start pestering me about getting stuff finished. Not in the "I'm actually impatient and have no idea what kind of time goes into this stuff" sort of way but in a "how much headway did you make? Are you accomplishing any goals" sort of fashion.
Beyond that, there's two things that are new that I'd like to do for AB this year, as I think this starts year ten! I can't talk about them because it really depends more on outside factors beyond myself, so it's more of an "if" rather than a "when". That's all I'll say there, but I think both could be pretty cool, one of them possibly fun. I'll see about getting the wheels turning behind the scenes on that, and since it (again) doesn't require much input from me, I can keep working on finishing stuff up. So that's it for this write up. I gotta nail this now for year ten. Time to psych myself up!
