Saying hi, promoting a long term projectHi readers,
So at the moment I'm sitting on about 48 gigs of unprocessed images. I have been a little bit bad updating my deviantart account with them. But have been posting to flickr and facebook.
With that said I want to talk a bit about a project I started a few years ago and I'm planning on doing for the next 20.
Basically I been creating a photobook with my favorite images and sending it to print every year with the hope of making 25 of them I'm always a year behind. When I finish 2012 it will be my fifth year so I wanted to show it a little.
2008 is not in the page yet since I made it in createspace but I'm planning to port it over.
The idea of the project is that when i'm gone I leave a photo memoir from images I chose.
Life, Some new blogs and changes in deviantHi Everyone,
I have been posting images lately while i had stopped for awhile i have been in deviant art since around the time i was 16 now im 26 so its been about 10 years. This last year was the hardest. I got burned out at work which not only destroyed my motivation to create for quite a few months. Anyways wanted to take the time to explain why im not updating the Journal so much.
Created a proffesional blog where i talk about programming related activities.
Last month with my Gf we started a blog about our adventures together we tend to go to a lot of places and im posting a lot of my stuff in there.
And last but not least i'm trying to sell art prints a bit more and deviant so far as not been a good place so im putting some more effort in other places.
Got 2 pieces in there that so far have done averagely well. I used to love this place and i sti
Yey i PostedI've realized that i've lately been on a funk in terms of art and want to get back to it. I got last week a new camera and lens so hoping that i will start going out and use it.
Bough a sony alpha 55 since i want to try making some movies for youtube also. for the lens got a 85 mm carl zeiss planar i already got the lense and it rocks now waiting for the camera.
I'm going to try and have two photography outings a month that way i get back into it.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Hey EveryoneI'm going to post some deviations today probably some pictures i've been really disconnected from this site. I'm wondering is anyone that i know still here ? Say hi. I will do a post with some more information about my absence either today or tomorrow.
I have returnedI finally felt like grabbing my camera and doing something artsy again so i'm back again this time i'm still playing with silvermisthing even though i haven't posted anything yet but i will before sunday. Also playing with vectors since i'm currently making some 2d video games.
Glad to be back just saying hi
The new craftMy apologies for not having taken pictures recently but life has been a bit overwhelming.
Therefore lets stop on that and talk about my new craft I finally started my metalsmithing class in order to attempt to become a proper silversmith. I gotta be honest im enjoyed it to incredible amounts i come home and i smell like copper all the time but its an amazing experience.
I will be posting images soon of what i have crafted so far. Also will post details about the entire experience in my blog at: alfredoalvarez.com/blog

Life sometime throw a curveballThis is statement is very true. For the most of the past year i thought i was going to go and do a PHD at one point or another now i know this to not be true. I've gotten to a point in life in which i'm actually okay with how my life is. It might not be exciting but very worth living. Due to this i decided to forsake my aspirations to the degree and with that came some more realizations. I really do not have much time :S. This year i started nanowrimo but at this point i'm going to give up on writing the novel only got like 5000 word in. This were the goals for this month:
-Set the web page (now that is designed i need to code it) - Did nothing on this field hopefully i will work on it this month and have it ready for my b-day.
-Take pictures in Spain- Disaster left the camera at home ending without being able to use it during my whole trip took pics with my cell but they are not worth uploading.
-Finish the buddies series - Still missing 2 of them one of them has been drawn.
Let's see how it wentLast month i said i would finish all this 4 things before september 14.
Finish all of the Buddies series got a few to finish(color pencil works some of them are halfway done).
-Finish the website wind&waves with the new redesign.
-Blog in my blog with tutorials for expression design.
-Upload my pics from the rose festival and from my trip to Oregon(this was in april).
Well i did not but i got quite some progress done on them by setting the deadline for them even if i'm reporting 16th days after the deadline.
-Finish the buddies series - I was missing 4 drawings i completed 2 of them and finish the drawing for the third only needs paint. That is progress for what i had done the month before.
-Finish the website wind&waves - This one kind of failed since the website owner decided to cancel the website but instead i did the design of my own personal website posted the interface in my gallery.
-Upload pics - This one i did very well i'm done with the pictures from oregon and with the help
The DERE TypesExplained Tsuki Style.
These are all the dere's I know
If there are more, please tell me and I'll add on :3
Bakaderederived from baka, idiot and dere, lovey dovey
- A bakadere as the name implies is a stupid idiot in love, clumsy with the way they're in love, but super in love :3
Bodere: They lash out when embarrassed, and prefer fists over words.
Byoukidere: Usually very sweet and kind, but suffer from some disease (usually a fatal one.) They are often frail and weak in nature.
Dandere derived from silent, is simply a silent type
- Dandere is someone who doesn't talk, is shy and antisocial until the right person comes along, at that point they will talk and become more confidant.
- Daruderes are those who are nonchalant to those who they love, but they do express emotions, just usually show no interest in those who like them
Icon Contest [closed]
Hi. I'm running another contest.
I really need a new icon, an icon that I can probably use for a long time (for my YT channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuMhcz39FjIPeHgOEyChvcg?disable_polymer=true)
so!! why not hold a contest
-USE HIS NORMAL FORM, ignore the monster and past
-No pixel icons, it will ruin the quality on YouTube.
-You CAN animate it, but make sure that the first frame is the main frame, because most people won't be able to see the animation unless they see a notification of me pop up.
-You can do anything with it! Background can be anything, any color, I don't really mind.
-You can shade it, leave it flat, etc.
-Any form of art is allowed! Cell shaded, realistic, paper, lineless, ANYTHING!
-I'd prefer head shots (shoulder to head), but if you want to squeeze in something else, feel free!
-He can wear anything!!
-I don't really have a preference of how it should look. I'm happy with anything :>
