After almost a year of backlog, I can finally say that I'm up to speed with my work load! There are two commission items from six months ago that I'm finally getting around to (and thankfully the clients are super understanding and don't really have a due date tacked on them). Otherwise, the other commissions I have on my list are pretty much up to date.
I finally have time to set aside for myself to work on Patreon content without cramming at the end of the month (which was the norm for the past six months anyway) and more importantly, I get time to myself to work on personal art.
There are so many things I wanted to work on as a personal project and I'm sad that I didn't get to commit to my adventure comic Soul Blade early last year. Right now, I'm really invested in getting all the Demon Girl Zodiac characters out. Perhaps sometime, while I still have time, I can start Soul Blade back up again. It was something I really wanted to do, but I think the only thing holding me back is whether or not if work will pick back up again and I have to sacrifice some time on that and leave Soul Blade again.
Alternatively, I can manage my time better but life has a way to rear its ugly head in and set back a lot of progress on... well, almost everything. On top of that, the commission work I do for a client that is working on his independent H game is on hold until he starts coming up with content for the second part of his game so that really helped me get back into the swing of things as far as my regular commission list goes.
