This will come as no surprise to some, but I've been toying with the idea of separating my characters from my brand. At least when it involves names and what represents my art.
See, I have OCD and majority of the time it's decided to show itself, always involves my art. Honestly if it hadn't been for my OCD tendencies, I probably would have quit on art a long time ago, but my OCD actually fixated on it.
That out of the way, the OCD also doesn't like it when things aren't the same across the board.
I need to make sure people can find me, but if I keep rebranding every time I fall in love with a character, well...I'd be rebranding daily.
Long story short, I've got some plans in the works, but i'm taking my time this time. Because the timing of it aligns with issues i'm having online with people I used to know IRL. This definitely could look like i'm running, because that's what I've done in the past, but this isn't about me running from anything, it's embracing who I want to be.
I don't want to be scared anymore and I want to be my authentic self, and that means giving myself a "studio"
type name so I can change characters.
out of this, I also discovered a name i'd like to go by, also not attached to characters, cause this is for me.
So, let me try introducing myself:
Hi. i'm Blu. I'm an artist and illustrator that focus on video game and fantasy art. I'm Non-Binary and Pansexual.
This might give you a hint at where i'm going, but this new brans sums me up to the Letter and includes everything I've ever wanted in an Art name. I'm working on stuff in the meantime, but mostly behind the scenes so as not to stir the waters before i'm ready :)
Thank you all for being here and giving me a solid ground to build my foundation on <3
P.S. Sableregn (DH) and Cinnri (NightElf Paladin) are going to be my mascots (harpy eagle/blue dragon)
