It's been awhile, so I might as well give an update.

I've been pretty inactive on 2017, as most of my time is occupied by gaming and university stuff. Other than the odd sketches and the Inktobers its been a dry year for me, though I did manage to do all 31 Inktober sketches for once, which was nice. But shit ain't gonna ease up in the first quarter of 2018 as I'm still in the process of putting together my graduation thesis.

Yes, graduation is on the horizon and I'm painfully aware of how atrociously unprepared I am for the real world. I could pursue a Masters, as what I truly want is to do a course on something that I truly want. 

IRL stuff aside, I want to have an art goal (until Inktober 2018 comes a-knockin') to strive to reach too.

I'm still a fan of sequential art aka comics and I still want to make a military-themed one, if only just so I can have something that I did that doesn't make me cringe later on as I do now at my novice art style back when I made that. Don't get me wrong, I was proud of myself then to have actually done a full webcomic from start to finish, but that was a bitch to do and I've still got a lot to learn.

But I'm shite at stories, and for all the ideas and concepts I've had in theory and on paper I don't quite have a story that can take off. Maybe I'll eventually get around and have one done but my imagination isn't quite as broad as I'd like to think so, but what I am is open to suggestions for a good pitch or idea, something novel that I would never have thought of in my cotton brain.

Speaking of cotton brain, I've also dabbled in some...lewd stuff. It's something I've kept mostly private ever since, and done what I could to distance myself from the typical usual stuff that I do and am known for, but like any hetero dude my flesh is weak and the pen wanders. Part of me is ashamed and wanting to prevent that kind of stuff to be associated with what I do and what I'm known for (whatever that may be).
And then a small part of me feels that that is...limiting.  That it's okay, that I can find a compromise if only to both vent and share, and possibly even find some community that doesn't mind or can accept both (somehow).

We shall see...

Do you think the British handing over Hong Kong to Taiwan instead of China would make things better in Hong Kong?
ThomChen114 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2017  Student General Artist
Depends. When the US shifted their stance to recognizing the PRC Mainland as The China, pretty much every other country followed suit, including the British.
If the US hadn't decided to get friendly with the PRC in the 70s in order to oppose the USSR, and the British lease on HK expired as scheduled while the ROC was still recognized as the legit government of China, then perhaps Hk would've been handed over the Taiwan.
As far as being better goes, keep in mind that Taiwan wasn't the paradise you'd expect a non-communist country before the 90s would be. After the KMT moved to Taiwan in 1949, they pretty much imposed martial law on the island, in order to solidify their rule, nationalize the economy in order to accelerate growth and prepared for a defense against a lingering threat of invasion by the Mainland as well as the 'eventual' liberation of the Mainland by the ROC. That martial law lasted up to the late 80s, when political reforms and the later election of the opposition DPP to power ended the KMTs grip.
If HK was passed to TW, then how would HK be integrated? Would it continue to have its own currency, laws, traffic system, judicial system, economy, education etc? Would the people of HK be willing to give up what they've been used to living with and be governed by their island neighbor to the east? For all its democracy, the Taiwan government may still seem foreign (at the time) to the people of HK.
Maybe TW will also make HK an autonomous region and pretty much do what China had done so since the 90s, with HK handling most their own domestic affairs. As far as respecting the rights and freedoms of HK maybe Taiwan will be less intrusive and interfering, since whatever they do would still have to go through a legal process and require the go ahead of the Legislative Yuan which would be answerable to the people.
This all happening while the elephant in the room, PRC China, is seething to the north, and might encroach on HK and maybe pull a Crimea.
All speculation, but opens a lot of interesting questions.
