This shows tons of what I find to be very interesting artworks, stories that I have added. Check some of them out!


It's been almost a month since I last posted a journal. First of all, I want to give everyone an apology for being so quiet on here. I've been awfully busy with my work and with my life in general. First thing I want to mention to everyone is, I have reached up to 325 submissions in 2018. I have never been so personally productive with my art before, let alone put my dedication towards my skill in practicing towards getting better to help me reach out there to a much wider audience. And here's what I did in corresponse to 325 submissions.

MM - The Menace Lurks (325th submission of 2018) by BlueMario1016

And after so long, I have finished this year's holiday project! Yup! That's right! The Holiday Project of 2018 is officially and successfully 100% complete! And this is coming from the creator himself towards dedicated to making you guys happy! Not to mention, it's the fastest record yet. From September 6th till December 4th, all 450 characters have been filled. However, today is the day that I made the final touches to the project and now it's truly 100% done. But because this year's project is so big, I have to split it into two parts. It is expected that this will be the most popular submission that I put up, with both parts combining the comments, favorites and pageviews. Part 1 is mostly in a red backdrop with the first 225 characters. The next 225 are in a green one for Part 2. Both submissions will also be in 4K Ultra HD resolution, as opposed to the 8K Ultra HD resolution image from 2017. That was because at the time, I had 400 characters in one piece, and I had difficulties putting in all the names through DeviantArt. But with this being split into two parts, it should help be easier to post in the characters and names to credit everyone properly as intended. I even had to fix errors from last year's for this year, by putting in the right character names and credited the right people for them. This year's project is to be much bigger than last year's, if you combine the two parts together. Because as mentioned above, 225 characters are in each part.

This has been an annual run for the past seven years and this is my eighth one. And I am still running on this same computer that I have been running since July 27, 2013. The exact date. An Intel Core i3 with 4 GB of RAM, but I will have to upgrade my computer in 2019. This PC won't last much longer and I will have to migrate over from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Windows 7's extended support ends January 14, 2020. But however, since I am a Windows 7 Professional user, I still get updates till January 2023, but I will have to pay for them, however. Windows 10 did have criticisms such as certain updates removing files in Documents and Pictures folders as well as privacy issues but I will have to migrate to that, or Windows 8.1, but extended support for that operating system ends January 10, 2023. I kinda fear 10 may be my only option. Anyways, enough of that. Here's a breakdown.

Holiday Project 2011 - Holiday Wall with 78 Characters
Holiday Project 2012 - Holiday Pack with 58 Characters
Holiday Project 2013 - Holiday Hexagons with 151 Characters
Holiday Project 2014 - Holiday Cards with 171 Characters
Holiday Project 2015 - Holiday Stars with 213 Characters + 1 Extra = Total: 214
Holiday Project 2016 - Holiday Bells with 300 Characters + 1 Extra + 16 for a Mini-bonus = Total: 317
Holiday Project 2017 - Holiday Shards with 400 Characters + 1 Extra = Total 401

This year's Holiday Project is the 2-parter Holiday Diamonds. it's split into two parts with one being Red and one being Green as stated before. The reason is because I can't fit all of them in one image. I also have this rule where no one should be allowed to complain if they see something they don't like about the project. For this case, criticisms and complaints shouldn't be considered as this art project is made as a way to celebrate and show honor to those that are featured. I don't want any buzzwords used or gossip spread over this. And also, don't feel sad if you're not featured, because I haven't been always able to feature literally everyone. The files would be too much for data storage if I was to draw everyone, I mean, think about it. With both .sai files combined, it's 380 MB put together. (182 MB for part 1 and 178 MB for part 2). Meanwhile, the .psd files combined is only 214 MB combined. (106 and 108 MB for both parts respectively). I am surprised that this was less space than the 2017 project with both the .sai and .psd files. It's most likely because the two-part images are 4K sized, whereis last year was a whopping 8K and that's why it took more room. Last year's holiday project was a mass success and let's hope this one turns out well too and keep it that way. 2018 was rough, just like 2017. But in comparison, 2018 was a bit worse. Ironically, I did more art this year than last.

Just like 2017, some character designs from past projects had to be carried over, due to time constraints. I was originally to have only 50 newcomers, but due to some people being inactive or cutting me off entirely, they had to have their spots filled in with other more newcomers. Many people that were in last year's project, have returned for this year's. Some characters were re-designed to have updated looks. Others were either imported over via resourcing from files that I archived. In another sense, a lot of characters were heavily edited and modified to fit in to this year's project, with changes made. Or some had new characters altogether replacing their old ones, so they had to be drawn from scratch. Everyone else were newcomers. 94 newcomers as I counted, as many were removed from last year due to loss of contact or inactivity. Interestingly, there are 6 people that are actually those returning back that appeared in other projects in the past. So if you don't count those returning to appear in this year's project that didn't appear in the past projects, I actually have 88 newcomers in total.

One more thing. I don't really recommend you re-post either one of the parts of the entire project on your profile, as the original versions of them won't get as much attention. Yes, that may come off as me being a jerkoff, but the least you can download is download the project and keep it as a gift. I made sure to correct everything in the work before finalizing it to being uploaded for everyone, which will be this Christmas Day, on December 25th. We don't wanna see tons of copies being uploaded up to the point where the original gets no traffic. The reason is because there's so many people that will be featured, I don't want to see the same image being uploaded constantly where it'd drive everyone off the wall and start questioning: "What is this? Why is this being up? Is there a raid going on? Must we have to report to the staff?" It's much smarter if you're far better safe than sorry. Prevent such incident from happening. Though, you can upload a snippet of your character as an optional choice towards your profile, but if so, be sure you link to the original version.

I know it's been really rough this year, but for those who has stayed around with me despite all this, I want to give you all my big thanks and my heart towards all of you, espeically to my supporters, my close friends and other loved ones as my fanbase continues to expand on, for more years to come. This project would have never been made if not for the love and support of you guys. And that means a lot to me, really. Once Christmas Day arrives, I shall upload both parts of the project where all of yous will be surprised! I am sure some may not know and those who are lucky, might get this from me. 2016 was huge and 2017 was more huge. But with 2018, that'll pretty much push them aside, as just like I told you all earlier, this will be the more successful holiday project to ever be made. I know I said this for many years. But each year gets bigger and bigger due to an increasing fanbase. Both parts combined will put together the total status (views, comments and faves).

It's coming down to not much of a surprise that this will bring smiles and joy to many when Christmas Day arrives for me to put this up and just comes to show that I proven time and time again to dedicate my time to giving everyone my thanks towards their support and this is gonna be yet another job well down that will be followed towards happiness to those who stick around and here's hoping that it will also repair relations to those that I had downfalls with. Please look forward to it, on Christmas day!

Blue out.

Hello, I am BlueMario1016, but everyone here likes to call me Blue for short, as my official online nickname. I am a fellow user on deviantART and some certain other websites. I've came here to make new friends and have fun as well by expressing myself and showing what I can really do. I love to do art as well, as I learn to improve on from my skills and fulfill my experience. Out of most art genres, anime art seems to be my favorite type, since I am inspired to do art usually in that particular style. I may have some problems, but I would like to be successful and respected in life, and I don't want others to feel pity on the problems I have, whatsoever, because that would be wrong. My account was hacked here once, so if it ever happens again, that won't be me saying all those mean things.

I am proud to be an Italian-American. :iconitalianflagplz: :iconamericanflagplz: :peace:

I also now have a personal PayPal created with a separate email. I can only buy from friends as of now. Though, If I do plan to open commissions soon (which I don't have plans for it now), I may have to limit it to friends only, as there are plenty that I can trust. But don't expect me to do this, all the time. Because I need to save my cash for important things as well.
