Hey, all. I've got some good news and some bad news.
The bad news: I've been having some anxiety issues as of late, which have been interfering a lot with my offline life. Can't even go out somewhere without feeling like I'll spiral into a panic. This is all most likely due to my dad's passing; I never really had the chance to grieve properly when he first left. So for the past week I've been holed up at home trying to keep myself calm and focused on other things.
The good news: I've settled on a solo project for Halloween. Don't know if I'll be able to get it done in time, but I'm not going to just drop it if I don't. This one is important. Essentially, it's a revival of the "Courage's Dark Descent" project that was teased last year. The concept of the project has been overhauled, so the old preview doesn't coincide with what I have in mind. There's a couple reasons why this project's important to me: one, I'm using it as an outlet for all these terrible emotions. Two, you may have noticed the lack of 3D works over the past few weeks. I've decided I'm going to focus on learning to design and model sets and then build some for this project, rather than having to just throw a bunch of flat images together in After Effects. And on top of it all, dad was always encouraging me to make connections with other artists. As such, I'm commissioning a certain composer on YouTube to make a special custom piece for the project.
So that's all that's going on right now. Take care, folks.
