Hey guys~!

So ever since my "triumphant return", most of you have been probably wondering what in the world happened to me, let alone when is this even going to take place.

Funny story, really. After that following day, I was asked from a classmate of mine if I could join him and a group of people in a project for school, and thought it was something not so big. So I said, "Sure."

Apparently that was not the case.

As a couple of weeks progressed, I soon realized just how big I got myself into; and it's something that can actually get me and my fiancee :iconhungrysohma16: somewhere in life. We got ourselves into an internship, and depending on how much the both of us kick ourselves into gear, we're guaranteed a job within our majors as soon as we graduate. So hooray to that! :dance:

That said, I'm sorry I can't go further into detail of what is this "internship" I'm talking about, but maybe sometime in the far future, I'll tell you guys.

So there you have it. We've been quite busy with a lot of things for this project we're dealing, as well as (on my end) dealing with school.

I'm currently taking up the following classes:

Art History - Boring .___.
Gambling Culture for Addicts - Super interesting (and apparently I learned in this class that there's a bachelor's degree for gambling that exists these days, I should consider minoring in this)
Sequential Media - Learning Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects (mega fun)
Emerging Tech Multimedia - Was supposed to learn how to make videogames, but instead we got an experimental class with a substitute professor and learning how to solder and program arduino boards (totally not part of my major but hey, new skill)

I'm also currently working on a new drawing for you guys to kick myself back into gear. It won't be Touhou, but at least I'm spreading my wings with a couple of new things, and I hope you guys like it. :aww:

That concludes my journal, thanks for reading!

P.S. Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes while I was gone, I really appreciate it! :hug:

I'm am amateur artist that found his love for drawing on August 29, 2005 who has never found interest before then. I hated drawing before because it was tedious.

Throughout my experience, I've had my ups and downs. I've received many discouragements from pursuing this path (and especially from my high school teacher) exclaiming that this is not a field for my future, only because I wasn't great at drawing.

Despite these harsh remarks, I pressed on.

However, because of my stubbornness and optimism to continue striving, I'm happily rewarded with people who continue to look forward to my work, as well as blessed with a wonderful person, :iconhungrysohma16:, who to this day continues to be my inspiration as to why I should keep on going both as an artist partner and as a fiancee.

Despite my improvements over the course of time, I still see myself as someone who's still new and fresh; always seeking guidance to others regardless of experience, whether it be on Deviantart, the internet itself, or in real life. As such, I always look to everyone to continue improving.

And that's who I wish to become in life: an inspiration to all hardworking artists out there; to show those fresh on the field that you don't have to be a genius or one has to have started drawing young.

To those who do wish to improve as an artist, here's my advice to you:

As long as you stay honest, patient and optimistic...anything is possible.

Be proud of who you are, and what you do; keep your head up, and strive forward.

And to always remember, that there is no such thing as perfection in the world...only experience.
