Yeah, things went awry for a while there, with the website and such. But I'm going to try and see if I can't get some money together and pay somebody who actually knows their shit to make an useable site for us all to enjoy. It'll be around 10 000 SEK, which is around 1150 USD/1050 EUR for comparison. Blerf.

I just recently moved too, so I've been setting up and getting used to my new place. Its going well so far! But, my scanner died in the process, so I can't upload the drawing I finished for today. Very frustrating.

But eh, you can have this instead. I worked on it for a week or so while the site was down and inbetween packing.

There are subtitles for you english people, so you can perhaps "understand" what is happening.
The flash file.

I've also got some fanart to show off! All three of Zu!

Cute Zu by definitesin!
Come Get Your Cake by Cinndrie!
Art Trade Zu by Big Buff Kitten Fluff!

Thanks to all of you!

Anyway, I'm really tired. I'll try to fix my scanner as well as try to get back into the horsey flashey stuff. But right now, it's sleeptimes! Nights!

Remember how they looked like garbage? Me too.
You've improved by hell of a lot since then, they were rough and unrefined but by no means garbage. Theres was way worse shit out there that was called "good" when you first popped up and there still is. If that shit is "good" according to people then the stuff you make is several magnitudes above that.
Never forget that.
I still think my artstyle back then was pretty awful.
Awful? Nope. More cartoonish? Yes. The char designs were already on par with a lot of cartoons I used to watch as a kid.
Cartoonish sure, but still pretty ugly. The artstyle I had back then just wasn't very appealing.
Why do you think it's ugly? Is it because you have much better skills nowadays, and feel like the older versions are subpar to what you can draw now? Or something else? I like both versions, the new style is much more detailed and is much better suited for illustrating people doing stuff, but the older one has that cartoonish charm that somehow makes me feel nostalgic. Actually, it would be interesting to see current Zu giving really old distressed crying Zu her favourite plushie (or her favourite butt plug, since it's RC), just to see how old Zu would look like with your current skills.
I think it is ugly because the artstyle is bulky, unrefined and same-facey. And the face isn't even good looking. There are a lot of other problems with it too but I'm too tired to fo into details.

I'm not really sure what you mean by that last thing. Zu is still Zu?
Ah, I see.

I mean the current adult Zu interacting with her younger self, who is drawn the old "ugly" way, to showcase the difference between them.

I make shitty music and ive never really gone anywhere with it. Ive dabbled in most other things like drawing, animating, coding and other shit too so Ive been through most of the thought processes that come with potentially releasing something to the public. Never went anywhere with it though. Wish is had the tenacity to just stick to something and pull it through.
Why shitty music?
Well because it isnt particularily good. Just like your flashes used to be rough and "ugly", my music has its own uglyness right now that i still need to iron out. Im lacking in creativity or inspiration too.
That sucks, you coulda made some music for flashes otherwise!
I think i see what youre getting at haha. I'll hopefully get there at one point. Id love to have helped but as it is right now, while i might be ready to showcase some stuff, theres no way id be able to ask for my music to be featured somewhere. Id feel like my music would reduce the overall quality of whatever it is its featured in.
Well, the best way to get some good feedback is to show it to other people. I'm not much of a music critic myself, but I know some people who could probably give some advice.
While i appreciate the offer i think this would cause more headache than it would help. Im a bit peculiar when it comes to how i approach learning and making music. Now i dont want to shit up this comment section any further with this stuff. If you feel like you want to continue this conversation just shoot me an email whenever. If not, well then until next update!
