Yeah, it has been a while since I made a post. Well, since I had no CORE status, I don't have a custom skin for journals. Might as well keep you posted.

Probably wondering why I haven't had posted art this year. I am really trying to get back into things, but I just haven't got the spark of inspiration or motivation lately. I am sorry for not being active on dA. However, I do have Facebook and Twitter, so you may follow me there (and once I get videos done, YouTube). Recently, I have been working on applying for a Cataloging Assistant job, as well as boosting skills both in art and other work-related subjects.

I am working on sketchbook videos, but I am planning on getting a microphone. Also, I would like to have a video series to get a decent YouTube channel working.

Must be more active now.

However, things have been pretty hectic: relatives visiting this weekend; MAGFest and Jury Duty happening later this month.

Right now, I am focusing on skill a bit more before I can present work. I also have Clip Studio Paint.

Almost 10,000 Pageviews and my Features Hiatus

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 22, 2015, 5:50 PM
I am approaching 10,000 views for my deviantART page, and it took me over 8 years to do so. That means a lot of people had taken a few seconds to see my work on this page. While it may not seem that much, especially since a lot of people have reached that goal way earlier than eight years, I think it's pretty interesting. I may do a 10,000 kiriban (what does that word mean, anyway) to celebrate that moment.

Also, you may notice I haven't done a monthly feature in a while. I decided to take a break just to focus on other work, not to mention I had been busy with other things (e.g., MAGFest).

Well, deviantArt, you're another year older.  I remember joining the site.  I had just finished my first year of majoring art in college (although, I decided to finish college with a computer science degree).  Still, I wanted to continue creating art, and watching several people helping me improve and inspire me.

Starting from creating traditional artwork and then expanding to digital, I am learning new ways to create art.  It's difficult to choose a side, because I enjoy both digital and traditional media.  Someday, I would like to create illustrations or make stories (particularly with my two mascots featured in the last illustration).

It's no surprise, for those who looked at my profile, that one of my favorite characters is Luigi.  So, in honor of this gaming underdog, I am doing a feature of some of my favorite Luigi artwork (some new and some classics, this time).

Starting next month (May), I will be doing features on the first and third Monday of each month.  For example, for the month of May of this year, the features will be on May 5th and May 19th.

Also, I have been busy with my job and work around the house.

April 2014 Feature Part 2: Rain!

Sun Apr 13, 2014, 2:49 PM

I'm starting a bi-weekly feature after doing a feature in my last journal, which I had fun doing.  The first half of April will feature cute bunnies, since April is the month of Easter.  Normally, I would choose 10, but this time, I shall do 15 (the reason being is because it's the minimum requirement for this contest by projecteducate).
