Pokemon terrariums & blogging 2.0

First off, I've been thinking of ways to spice up this blog. 

At the moment my format is rounding up the work I've been doing over last fortnight every Sunday, and I don't know how interesting that is considering that most of my readers find the blog from following my social media. I'd really like to do something different and use this blog as a space to experiment and try out some new things. 

I'm still generating ideas at the moment, but I'm thinking of alternating my posts between 'round-ups' and then, the next fortnight, something a bit different. Some things rolling around my brain are: 

- Step-by-step processes/tutorials of how I work 

- Game/movie/TV show reviews 

- 'Top 5' lists (everyone loves lists right?) 

- Different art/writing challenges 

I'm also thinking of doing Bonus posts giving out reference photos, moodboards, etc. 

If there's anything you'd like to see me post about then please, seriously, let me know. Similarly, if there's anything you want to see less of I'm open to feedback. 



So, yeh, I went back to the terrariums!

Mini-Pokemon themed terrariums are something I've been thinking about ever since I made those Pokemon variants, and I really enjoy the whole process. I won't be able to make these as often as I'd like, but I certainly intend on working through the first 150. The same for the variants. I haven't forgotten them!

I've also been hard at work on development for the comic, but as it's becoming more finalized I'll be cutting down on how much of it I post. Some things are best left in suspense.
