2015 Art Summery by Moonstruck-badger
2015 Art Summery
This was one of those years where I felt like I wasn't drawing nearly enough or really improving at all, but actually seeing everything lined up it actually wasn't that bad! I actually attempted backgrounds most of the time even though a lot of it ends up just being a bit of color, but still I'm pretty pleased with it. 

Homestuck seems to once again dominate my art but Undertale snuck in there at the last minute and taken the October and November slots completely. If you don't recognize February and March that's because they were posted only on my tumblr page since they were just simple sketches. December on the other hand is an unfinished piece that I got started in December. It's about 70% right now (haven't had time to work on it during the holidays).

If you wanna see more sketches that don't make it to Deviantart my tumblr is Moonybadger.tumblr.com 
Most of it is Undertale or Homestuck right now, with a decent amount of Mad Max on occasion.

So I noticed that I haven't posted any updates on here recently; even missed my self imposed six-month update thing! I can just never think of anything to say. Even now I'm just sitting here staring at the screen blankly. Mostly just dealing with film school and all it's hurtles I suppose? Though I figured I owe you guys an update on my status in the MLP fandom since I assume that's why most of you follow me.

I'd kind of been putting this off mostly because I hate it when people make a big dramatic post announcing how they're disillusioned with whatever it was they were a big fan of and how they're officially leaving, as though they're turning in a two week notice for a job they've grown to hate (though I can see why the more popular people do it since they'd probably have people constantly asking after them if they're ever going to draw for whatever fandom) EITHER WAY you guys probably deserve an update after my radio silence and, what the hell I'm in an introspective mood anyway so I may as well transcribe my thoughts here.

I guess you could say that I am "officially not in the MLP fandom anymore" (though again the whole concept is kind of ludicrous to me but I digress) This is mostly for two reasons: one is that I got really sick of the fandom in general. I always had my issues with them, but at some point I just got fed up with it. The drama, the self-absorption, and the martyr complex; bleh. Also just how SEXUAL everything seemed to be? I dunno, I just lost patience for it.

But the main reason, way more so then the fandom is that I just wasn't inspired by it anymore. I was in the fandom for a very long time. I even remember that Dragonshy was the latest episode to have aired when I jumped in. The show helped me through a lot of tough spots in my life, especially high school and my first semester of college, and I'll always appreciate it for that. But I can only be artistically invested in something for so long before my interests drift elsewhere. It's just a natural part of fandom life I think. This doesn't mean I like the show any less (heck I would probably put pokemon in a similar boat); let me clear in saying that it was not the show's fault that I left. I don't think it got noticeably worse in any aspects, and if anything it improved! I'm just... not driven to draw for it anymore. I don't have the same passion that I used to have. I don't read fics or go look up reaction episodes I just... watch the show. But that's it. It's kind of just a show that I enjoy now.

That's not to say that I won't ever draw for it again! I sometimes do rediscover that drive, like with the Soarinjack picture from a few months ago. That's why I don't really like the whole "I'm leaving the fandom!!!!" thing, cause there's always a chance I'll do more art for it down the line. Just... don't count on it.

TL;DR: I still enjoy the show but am not inspired by it anymore.
