All Bent Realm Studios Announcements
Always working on projects in the background even when I get quiet :)
Refining the layout on a zombie painting. Soon will be painting the castle I sculpted earlier this month, pics can be seen on my Instagram, which usually gets live pics while working on projects & generally receives my art & crafting pics before any other social network.
Started my official Bent Realm Street Team & added one member, whom I also made admin on my FB page (Posted on there about it).
Working on all kinds of things in the background as always.
Still in the process of setting up all that needs to be done for splintering Artistical Exploration into 4 separate topical blogs, where this blog AE will become just about art and the other 3 main topics (writing, crafting, and business) will have their own blogs, just finished writing a draft of a blog entry talking about it, it will get edited soon then posted.
Also in the process of setting up 6 YouTube channels (separated by topics).
Developing a regular sketchbook habit. Trying to get back in the habit of doing regular digital art too.
Writing most days, I joined this 365K Club in which we're trying to end up at the end of the year having at least 365,000 words written (attempting to average 1000 words a day). I'm doing well so far and will get into that in my writing blog soon (see blog status list below for link).
