Looking back6 years. I've been here for six years. I could say it feels like I joined yesterday, but it's just not the case. It feels like an eternity. The long-haired teenager that joined and was nearly terrified of submitting his first drawing is a distant memory. So much changed since then.Looking back3 years ago in Personal More Like This
One thing remained the same through the years: a strong desire of improvement. Back in 2006, I expected harsh critique. I expected to be demolished by my peers. To have my technique corrected. Well, since this is deviantArt, such a thing did not happen, except for a few rare, unexpected, welcome times. I've had my share of "nice" "lol xD" "i really like it" and comments containing only a smiley. Part of the game, okay. Most of the time, I received good comments, compliments and praise.
Then, the turning point of my deviantart experience, you guessed it: The World War comics. Started as a joke, something to make my few watchers laugh. Not much thought and effort was really put into it, as it was supposed to b

Time to refresh my journal, I think.
Here are some artworks gleaned from recent additions to my favourites folders, I hope you enjoy them!!
In Recent News..Well hows it going deviant art, just submitted that Arma3 fan art drawing, which probably has more effort put into it than needed be, mainly because I decided to try something and it didn't go the way I planned.In Recent News..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Meanwhile on the other side of the screen, lifes been busy, however I'd say last Thursday has to had been the highlight of my week.
First and foremost, to start that day off I was walking to the motorpool and some LT got out of his car and saluted me before I did, and I kinda just looked at him awkwardly and he realised he don goofed.
Second, it was a road test day for one of the tanks, and I of course got to drive it (as i'm one of the few with a tank license so far)
During said road test me and my tc sgt. rod encountered the assholes of the worlds vehicles parked on the exit road from the motorpool. They gave me hardly any room to maneuver the closer i got to the exit. Well anyways on the way out I was turned in (hatch closed) so i couldn't really see
So far from homeWell hello peoples, it's been a rather interesting few days so far. Can't tell the time anymore or it's flying by, mainly because we're working 5am- 11pm. Well anyways hope everyone's doing well~So far from home1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Back in 37 DaysGoing to do some predeployment training over in good ol' Cali, I'll still be able to get on dA but I guess any and all artwork will be postponed till I return. Which is rather unfortunate since I may or may not have the motivation to finish them. On the bright side I will be taking my sketchpad with me so hopefully I don't draw like a 5 year old on crack when I come back. Anyways, until next time comrades~Back in 37 Days1 year ago in Personal More Like This

The FX Channel has just concluded the highly successful third season of its American Horror Story series.
Each season has featured its own stand-alone storyline, insuring against series stagnation and creating a story competition as the ever-ravenous horror audience eagerly awaits each season’s next outrageous attempt to top the last. Coven, the third entry in the series, a witchcraft genre entry, has not disappointed. Its star, Jessica Lange, was nominated for a Golden Globe. Critical reception, despite the considerable gory fx (envelope-pushing for net

O snapI remember way back in the day, I created some helmet bullet hole decals for a Red Orchestra 2 Immersion Mod (wasn't sure if they would work or not), this was Before I went to Basic, like a year later, i'm scrolling on the Ro2 forumns and I see the mod has gotten huge as shit, and so much more content has been added since. I scrolled down to the credits and low and behold. I'm pretty fuckin proud of this. As little as it was.O snap1 year ago in Personal More Like This
9/11/2013Yesterday I was contemplating what to do to honor 9/11. I thought about drawing something; but then realized I'm not the greatest drawer in the world. But then, thanks to my English class today, I had a way! My teacher basically told us to write some literature about 9/11, whether it be a story, a poem, etc. And, well, this happened:9/11/20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
The cold, blue sky,
Above the city of a million lights.
The silence of dawn,
Broken only by the sun.
Glittering in the dawn.
The ashen, grey sky,
Above the city of horrified eyes.
The silence of day,
Broken by the screams.
Shattered to all.

I powerslided (drifted) this bitch at 40mph, resulting in slamming gunner onto his computer panel, Lt having the time of his life ,and same for loader.
We Q1'ed on Table 6 as a brand spanking new crew (which surprised even me).
So yeah, thats about it, back to artsing around, got some good ideas now so hopefully that'll stryke down the art block i had.
