My Bio
I like to build, experiment, and study stuff. Between my 3 main creative hobbies:
  • Programming,
  • Guitar,
  • and Art,

Art is unfortunately, the most time-consuming and imperfect creative form amongst the 3.

But Art captures very well a snapshot in time. Art is a study, and studying my own art is intriguing in and of itself. To see my obsessions and inspirations; my style; my experiments.

The form of the line is really mysterious. As with all art, a slight variation can make such a huge impact to how the piece feels, and much more so art, with the impact being immortalised for all eternity.

I thought the changes were a lot. Now it's like ... the site is completely different! It's not that bad for me because I only use so little functions on the site, so I don't have much familiarity with anything apart from submitting deviations. And that hasn't changed much. I do like how the site looks so new and modern, but yea I do worry about whether a lot of this information on the front page is relevant or not, and whether people can find what they need. Because that's apparently what most modern UIs do, provide big wide areas of articles and media but fail to present data in way that facilitates fast retrieval. And the logo, it looks c

DeviantART changed a lot recently. I think I pretty much lost track of what new features there are now, and how to use it. I am convinced it's not an issue of age, it must actually be that older folks like me have less time to fiddle with the site settings to see what everything does. *nods*

The last time I wrote a journal entry was in 2011. WHOA! It's 2014 now! And both times, it was only because there was PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP DAY that I wrote a journal lol. So nostalgic. My music was Tsuyogari from Beelzebub ... ages since the anime ended. In a 'meh' way. I was reading Gin no Saji by FMA legend Hiromu Arakawa - the thing's still continuing, going strong, and a perfect classic in my opinion. Watching Fairy Tail, One Piece, Gintama, Toriko, Beelzebub... All of them except One Piece had ended. Fairy Tail in fact even ended AND restarted just a few days ago. One Piece, Gintama, Toriko and Beelzebub weren't so good, I think I drop
