I saw that a lot of artists and people I watch made a retrospective of their year, so I guess I'll try one too.
I'd say that this was my most successful year on this website:
First of all, I joined a collab for the first time, which lead to my fan count basically quadrupling. Each new piece seems to be favourited by someone, and I now have three more pieces with five or more votes.
Second of all, I tried PicoCAD and, after two bad drafts, I started posting those pieces online. Working on it feels less stressful, and more about trial and error than anything. It seems like everyone liked those pieces too, as it's the main thing I see getting voted on. I only hope you give my non-PicoCAD pieces that much attention in the future.
Last of all, I got supporter status, which lead to me changing my name. "Articninja165" was a cringey name, and I'm pretty sure it's based off an OC I made, or vice versa. "UnculturedMutt" doesn't seem as cringe in comparison, and I feel like I could make a career with this name. It even has two words smashed together.
I don't know what to say to close this. So, Happy New Year, and I hope I don't get burnt out near the start of the next year again.
Edit: It happened again. Not due to burnout, but school. I'll probably be able post a piece for pixel day, but that'll be it for January
