hi everyone! I'm alive, really. Here is an update about everything:
I applied for Artist Alley at AWA this year, but I got denied under circumstances that doesn't sound right. So I am waiting for a second look/confirmation of my portfolio I sent.
I am working on a lot of stuff before I will be able to be back on track.
Here is what I lack:
- Finish Sugar Skull Commission for Coworker
- Flat Color
- Touch Up
- Finish Heartless Piece
- Finish Erato's Gift
- Kiriban prize on DA
- Chibi prize on Tumblr
I may set a Kiriban here too, so keep an eye out!!! More than likely will be a subscriber kiriban :)
I was bored at work yesterday >.>
So for a very long time, I haven't been posting much. I remember when I first got art accounts back in 2009....I posted ALL THE TIME. Mostly here because back then I was kind of intimidated by DA. I would post like 2 or three pictures a day. As the years rolled out they have been slowing down, some times more drastically than others.
Well, as for the past year, I have been going through tough times, with college last spring, having to get a full time job whenever I couldn't continue school for financial issues, to the stresses of work, home, and love life, my physical and mental health, etc.
Recently, one of my roommates moved out. I finally chose to fix up the now spare room for myself. My dream was to own an art studio, a personal work space, in my own home. Well, now I can bring that to life. I am currently setting things up, but I am also switching around my whole house now that my roommate has moved out. So, I'm hoping to be finished before Thursday, when I go to my side job for the weekend, so I can return monday to my new workspace.
To those of you who are wondering why I'm excited, its because I have always worked from my room. always. I rarely worked in my living room or kitchen because I live in a house full of people and they would complain or accidentally ruin stuff. Well, working from my room was horrid. In my mind set, I see a bed. Bed good. Sleep good. No work, go to sleep. sleeeeeeeeeeep. So, nothing would get done. I became very lazy when it came to working on art. This lead to depression because drawing is how I calm myself. It's my escape. So, now that I have a separate work space from my bedroom, I will get things done and build up what I have lost or put off.
Wish me luck! Need to get it ready before thursday so I can begin anew monday!!!
