So, after my last journal...I tried to work two jobs and go to school full time. It was pretty much a disaster. Finally "left" 1 job (Going down just to summertime) but I had fallen behind in school, so it took me forever to catch up.
After school was over, I went home to California to visit family for two weeks and then when I got back, I kept getting sick. I fell and hit the back of my head at work (No concussion, fortunately!) giving me major headaches for days, got the stomach flu a couple days later, ended up having a sinus infection (Which is why it was taking so long for my flu to completely go away) and got pink for the first time in my life on Wednesday...It has been the worst two weeks of my life lol.
When I went to the doctor for my eye, they gave me antibiotics for my sinus infection. Those things worked a miracle because I felt 80% better after 1 day. Now on my third day, I feel pretty much all better - just still have a bit of a cough a nasal congestion.
So, that brings me to now! I have been really wanting to draw (Which, for me, is nice because I feel like I was having a complete lack of inspiration). The reason for the poll is that I have been playing Fallout 4 like crazy and it's the reason for my inspiration. I just really love all of the characters and the post apocalypse setting and been getting drawing ideas for it. I was just curious to see if anyone would know about it.
I did have a little question...I don't know if I'm just paranoid or not, but...is anyone sick of me drawing Maria? She's just my go to since I'm so comfortable drawing her (And I kind of need that comfort with my huge insecurity in my drawing abilities right now lol). I don't know if I'm just being silly or if anyone actually cares. Of course I'd like to draw other characters, but I haven't really figured out how to draw them (If that makes sense), so I tend to draw her out of ease.
I play as Maria in my Fallout 4 game so if I did draw Fallout related stuff, you'd see an "alternate" Maria (AU, I guess?). I've also been worried, that...since I do plan on writing out a story featuring Maria and my characters, I didn't want to spoil what actually happens in my story. Maybe putting them in an AU like this will help keep my story spoiler free and also give me a chance to practice drawing different types of characters. With Fallout 4, I'm kind of able to grab more reference images in pertains to backgrounds, characters (Especially with the detailed character creator), etc. making it easier for drawing.
I have also thought about writing that AU to practice my writing stuff and didn't know if I should post it when done or not...?
I guess I'm just worried about making too many thing Fallout related and don't want to scare you guys away! lol Maybe you guys don't care at all, want to see it, or any other thoughts you have...I'd love to know!
I have definitely missed being here and hope my friends will forgive me for my long absence!
