First of all, I want to say Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that 2016 was great, and if not, I guarantee that 2017 will be the best year! For me, 2016 was one of the most depressing and the best year at the same time. I achieved and learned so much. There were good and bad days, but overall I accomplished so much. My dreams come true, and now I can’t be happier as I’m right now.

LMHPOLY website launch
So back in 2016 I created LMHPoly as my brand and launched my website lmhpoly.com
I made a @lmhpoly Twitter account and my first post on Twitter was in 2016 August 10:
At this time, I had 0 followers. I get 9 retweets and 20 likes from this post, that was awesome for me at that time. I tweeted almost every day, what I’m working on, and some other stuff like paintings. By the end of 2016, I reached 208 followers on my twitter account. So I want to say thank you, everyone, for following me!
I also created LMHPoly YouTube channel. The first video I uploaded in 2016 August 22. And 12 videos uploaded in total, gained 39 Subscribers and 3000+ Views in 2016. Nice to see that people are subscribing to me, I appreciate that.
I made a lmhpoly_home Instagram account. My first post posted in 2016 August 29 got 15 Likes:
By the end of 2016, I reached 31 Followers on Instagram, maybe it looks not so much, but for me, that is a lot of people, so thanks.
Learned a lot
In 2016 I learned so much new stuff by watching video courses on Pluralsight, Udemy, YouTube, and other websites. I read a lot of magazines and books about CG stuff like game development, optimization, asset creation, and so much more.
I challenged myself to learn to paint by using a drawing tablet and Photoshop. That was a lot of fun. Here is one of the best drawings I did:
After that, I challenged myself to learn to paint in the traditional way using a pencil and paper. I did the Draw 100 Faces Challenge, learned a lot. Here is one of the best drawings I did:
Launched my first product
2016 September 2 was one of the most life-changing moments of my life. I released my first “Low Poly Rocks Pack” game assets on Unity Asset Store:
That was a very successful launch. After 2 months in 2016 October 1, I was featured on Unity Asset Store main page:
At this point, I started making game assets for a living, that was my Main Goal of 2016, and I Achieved it! I’m so proud of myself.
Also, did some cool stuff for other people, one of them was my first Low Poly Car model VW Golf GTI 7:
I’m very happy about everything that happened in 2016. That was the hell of a good ride, and I hope that in 2017 we guys will achieve much more amazing stuff.
And remember guys - When you know what you want, and want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it. Never stop climbing the stairs step by step to your goal.
