2014, where did it go wrong? I had to cope with the lost of my bag, tablet pen, and sketchbook a few weeks ago. Wasn't that enough? Apparently not. Lady Luck seems to be not in my favor this season as just yesterday my laptop refused to work for me. It was taking a long time to start up and constantly blue screened. I attempted to fix it myself through initiating a scan/fix procedure, but that plan backfired instead. The fix didn't do anything. Nope, no good results. Nothing. Nada. Bupkis. Instead, my hard drive's now shot and there's a chance I may have lost all my files on it. Everything. My programs, games, and most importantly, my art. Every single piece of work I've done over the past year are now at risk of being lost forever, including my unposted work (e.g. Gym Leaders, Fakemon, etc.) that I've been waiting to upload later in the upcoming weeks. The whole thought of that is demotivating as hell.
I am currently typing this from another desktop and will be checking more places tomorrow to see if I can get my repairs and files recovered. I do not know when I'll be able to draw again, so I'm just going to post this as a heads up for those wondering. Should my files truly be lost, well... I'd rather not think of that outcome. All that progress... gone. Just like that. Bugh... Rest assured, I am still drawing in my sketchbook to keep my optimism up. If all goes well, you should all expect a surge of art once this ordeal's over. I'm hoping that will be the case instead of the former.
Until whatever scenario happens, be it good or bad, I'll still be replying to comments and notes as usual. Will keep you all informed once I get this done. For now, stay cool folks.~
Side Rant: This latest dA update is a load of shit. What the hell are you doing, dA?
