๐ŸŽ€ Oh Elise!! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฉฐ [Little Goody Two Shoes]

Was watching Little Goody Two Shoes playthroughs and doodled this in WebbyPaint

No recording because I didn’t know how to turn it on at WebbyPaint nor knew that it existed at the time :’)

I did this doodle late November 2023 trying out WebbyPaint and it keeps making unintentional lines later on! I don’t usually do painting without much lineart and I kept it loose and super rough since I can’t really be accurate with this program. It’s better for loose, rough painting studies or doodles. I know heavyjan is on but I don’t have the time for it and to learn webby/heavypaint.

Youtube shorts – timelapse! Back to vertical timelapse youtube shorts!

YES I caved and am doing timelapse youtube shorts from now on!

As you know making short subtitled long youtube videos wasn’t sustainable and didn’t really reach much people. I know timelapses isn’t really what engages people and people stick around for the education, entertainment or inspiration and I don’t really stand out in those ways. Or rather I’m not motivated by pumping out stuff I don’t feel genuine and interested about. And people care less that I want to document my art shenanigans like I do at my blog.

I am somewhat sad that I’m not making youtube videos regularly anymore, now that I’ve accepted that it’s not working out and that my time is spent better elsewhere. I should keep things short and sweet – even though most people don’t even watch the whole timelapse anyway :’) I was considering doing longer videos but not regularly? One long video for the year? But it feels like it’s out of obligation rather than genuinely wanting to make a video and I don’t want to add more to my already full plate. Hmm I’ll hold off from that and keep that as a “maybe”.

Perhaps I’d do random no mic art and study streams on youtube and on twitch eventually when I feel ready and in the right headspace! One dayyyy I keep reassuring myself! I get inspired by some artist streamers!

For now short vertical videos will have to do on youtube (making custom thumbnails is a pain to do because youtube doesn’t let you do it the normal way) and maybe instagram too. I’m not joining and juggling another platform like tiktok though ;P

Wow of course just putting out the art without the link reaches better on platforms, not just twitter. I guess I should just post the art and mention the blog post without linking it…my brain is overwhelmed and indecisive from overthinking all this ahhh

People don’t want my blog and youtube links on twitter, instagram, threads and bluesky ;P

On the Little Goody Two Shoes game (spoilers):

I watched all the endings, the canon ending is sad (leading to the start of their previous game) and most endings are not happy (while you may get more creepy lore). It fleshes out Elise more as a character and how she came to be!

There are happy, wholesome endings for each of the love interests too! But unfortunately they’re not canon – if you were to continue chronologically onto the dev’s previous game.

Elise’s backstory (and other story threads) were intriguing and I don’t know what to make of Elise’s brattiness and desire for riches, servants and a better life. How she doesn’t want a difficult life of hard work, suffering and survival anymore. She ends up getting manipulated into sacrificing/doing horrible things in return?? The red shoes represent material desires, fame, riches and the potential of living your dreams? I don’t know hmm

I do relate to not wanting to struggle and stress with life but alas life is full of suffering, struggle, change, compromise and good things… :’) And having your dreams and ideal life just come true just like that – it feels too good to be true.

Anyhoo I am still in anxious mode of trying to figure out what habits and things I can stick with during my work days and personal & art things on my off days. I’m just not sure how things will go in terms of how consistent I will post this year – can I make weekly happen? I do not know! I do know I can at least make 2x a month.

I have so much to do eep!! :’)

I need some months to get myself used to a routine I can be flexible with so my time struggles will continue :0

Also I had two weird dreams – is my brain just mashing up ridiculous, scary, vulnerable things together in dream form? :<
