Idek how many journals I've pre-faced with "needing to get the old journal off my page", but yep it's that time again! Just a little update of what I'm up to now and what's coming up. 

For the first time, I will be acting as a judge in an OCT! I was actually set to judge a tournament once previously but it fell through, so this will be a relatively novel experience for me, and one that I'm really looking forward to! It's already been super exciting and enjoyable being on the "other side" so to speak, and getting to see the premise, NPCs, and technicalities gradually coming together. The first OCT I'm on the panel for does not yet have a group, but that's because we're getting everything together behind the scenes first! I can't say much but I will say the setting is wonderful and if I wasn't a judge it is totes the type of OCT I'd swoon over.

The other OCT I'll be judging for is :iconmulligrubs-oct:, a tournament with a charming host and style + an intriguing but still open-ended twist on round prompts! It already has some buzz, so definitely give it a look!! Fortunately, the two will be staggered/starting at different times so there won't be any conflicts, and a lot of the action will be during summer. You'll definitely see me promoting them both some more and drawing fan/hype art once the dates get a bit closer, stay tuned!

Aside from that, I'm probably going to be auditioning for a new OCT myself quite soon! I've had my eye on this one for a little while now but I haven't worked on my ref/audi much yet and there's still a lot to do so better hustle. I had some doubts about whether or not I should go for it at all, and there's always that lingering thought of "oh I'll just hang back and try to improve my art/technique instead" but I think saying that is a lot easier than doing it, and auditioning would be a better way of staying productive for me. I need to have a goal/objective or I get really wishy-washy and aimless, you feel me? 

......Also, I'm almost certainly reusing Astra. I'm a bit anxious and reusing old characters can be pretty iffy but given that she didn't get v. far and that I would be giving her a bit of an update to fit into the genre/world of the OCT, I want to think that it wouldn't feel repetitive. I hope other people agree, esp. given how many... familiar faces there are... (Haha, can you guess the mystery OCT?) We shall see! Hope everyone else is doing okay and having a good art year so far, too!

You'll see soon enough, I hope! Finals have kept me busy, but I want to get my reference sheet done without any more delay for sure! I know that the host wants to open very soon as well. 8) Thanks for your interest!

(Psst, in short, my npc is a grandmotherly old statue lady.)
