All right everyone, the time has come! Remember how I said I've been planning to revamp the Genotype cast's characters for the longest time? Well, I'm finally ready to have something to show for the newly named "Progeny" story. I've decided I'll just make a new dA account for the new content for a couple of reasons. Though I've previously distrusted the management here on deviantArt, I'm willing to accept compromise and work with the site for the creative works I value. I can't find a better alternative to dA and I remembered there are plenty of people I know on this site, so you know what they say: "When life gives you lemons..." Well, I'd finish that statement with "pelt doofuses with the lemons", but that's not quite how the saying goes. Plus, it's worth mentioning that I've always wanted a psychological clean slate when it comes to me getting a new start with all of this.

Anyways, TL: DR, you can find me doing stuff here now:
gwussman.deviantart.com/

I'm almost ready to get the first six revamped character concepts out, so if any of you wonder what Gwuss is up to, you know where to find me. Once I transfer my watch list over to the new account, I'll be over on the new one from here on out.
  • Listening to: Mick Gordon/Omega Sparx- "I'm Back (To Rise)"
I've been gradually sketching up my character revamp concepts, but I came across a train of thought that just wouldn't quit and I think I should mention what's been on my mind. For any people that were fans of my dA OA videos back in the day, you might wanna keep readin'.

So I won't tell a lie here; it should be pretty obvious that I have a lot of regrets about doing that old video series and I blame no one but myself for it. It's weird to say since I always go off about how decent and cool you guys were about me quitting, but I seldom look back at those critiques and think "that was a good day". However, there's one elephant in the room I don't think I ever addressed in detail: My views on how I treated fetish art.

Quite frankly, I hate how I set up criteria and tried to say too much about art appealing to kinks and what not. I feel that I basically hit the main problem associated with judging and criticizing matters: being judgemental and critical for all the wrong reasons. For a lot of stuff that was basically harmless but came across as odd to many people, I made it seem as though it had worse implications than it actually did. And of course, I'm sure that crap was rich considering it came from a guy who never even talked about he looks at his own fetish (I'm not sure if I'll ever disclose what it is, but we'll see if I decide to mention it some time).

I wouldn't be surprised if people agreed to disagree with me on this, but I feel like I failed to achieve what I was looking for. With all of what I remember to be unintentionally convoluted reasoning, I think I never encouraged people to approach such fascinations in a way that felt healthy and modest. From what I gather, it was always "this doesn't work", but didn't put enough focus on the stuff that made odd yet manageable kinks work out. Basically, the TL;DR of my thoughts here is I feel that the way I once looked at fetish art in my old critique series was childish and made me a bit of a jerk. My apologies with that in mind.

And now that I'm older and have been wanting to redeem the dumb and cringey stuff I did years back, I'm... Stuck on this issue, honestly. How do I make up for this misstep aside from the lengthy "sorry" above? Perhaps just getting all of this off my chest will be enough, but I'm sure I'll figure out what I should do next with this concern of mine after I've completed my upcoming character concepts... (Inb4 I make a joke about how I draw in Valve time.)
  • Listening to: Chaos Chaos (Formerly Smoosh)- Do You Feel It?
Well, I was hoping I'd be able to move things along fast enough with the whole "character revamp thing", but I might have underestimated how much of other matters I'd have to tend to. Unfortunately, the big plans I've had recently are probably something you won't be hearing about for a while, since I've kinda been busy with more pressing obligations (And admittedly getting caught up with League Of Legends in the little spare time I have). Basically, I'm still getting in the time to revamp the character ideas (Albeit very occasionally), but you might as well consider those plans on hiatus right now. I hate to break this news to anyone wondering what I have in store, but once again, this probably won't get mentioned again for a long time. I'll just say when it's getting showcased on the fresh new account.
  • Listening to: Undertale- Megalovania (Piano Arrangement)
  Well, I should probably go ahead and keep anyone who wants to know updated on my plans. The plans are still the same in terms of making a new account to show off the revamped character concepts, but I kinda hit snags along the way with that.

  Disregarding a lot more of my time being eaten up by more pressing obligations (And playing League on the weekends, if I must confess), I did something that did not turn out the way I intended. You see, I admittedly monkey around in Source Filmmaker by posing blank animation dummys as anatomical references, since I often need food for thought when coming up with character poses. The only problem is that I attempted to use snapshots of said references as skeletons to digitally draw the characters around. Needless to say I don't recommend people trying that for drawing characters; the one time I tried the method, the drawing came out super bland compared to my older stuff. In my case, I can't beat drawing by hand and going from there.

  So yeah, good start; I waste too much time trying to even set up the sketches whenever I do have time to roll with the plans. Anyways, for anyone interested, it's still coming. I just gotta take my sweet time.
  • Listening to: Undertale- Megalovania (Piano Arrangement)
    Wellp, after much contemplation, I decided how to change up my plans after SAN hit the fan (Meanwhile Bane's on a plane while it rains in Spain). To be honest, I feel like I currently don't have any other options I've been gravitating towards besides dA. So, despite my vocal distrust of this site's management, looks like we're sticking with this for now. But that being said, everything's felt pretty cluttered with the way things are, and it seems like it's time to change up everything with a clean slate if I'm gonna redo my characters on dA.

    With all that said, here's the plan: Once I start finalizing the new renditions of the cast, I'm gonna release a journal announcing a new dA account I'll be posting at. Everything here's gonna stay where it is on this dA, but needless to say that there won't be much new here once I make my way over to a new setup.
