I decided I wanted to draw just one more thing this year (even though I haven't even finished my fursona's ref sheet yet >.>) so I drew my fursona, Shadow, getting festive. I made this in Photoshop and it took a little over an hour. The hat and party blower patterns are based on stuff I actually bought to celebrate 2017!
This year, I hope to focus more on my art and characters. I started arranging my characters into their own little fantasy world with backstories and relationships in March of 2016. It's come a long way since then, and I have created many characters, species, cultures, and landscapes. I hope to continue this in years to come. I also have the same resolution as last year, to be a generally better person, and it does work! Early 2015 me scares me a bit. Along with the big picture stuff, I also have small goals, like maybe eating some sweet and sour chicken (I haven't had any this year due to some bad leftovers I had in late 2015) and watching The Lion King along with all the original Star Wars movies. I saw Rogue One and now I'm hooked.
I doubt many people are going to read my late-night happy rambling, but...I genuinely can't think of an end to this sentence. I'm tired. Screw it, this isn't being graded or anything.
Happy 2017 everybody! Let's all hope for 2017 to be better for the world as a whole than 2016 was.
