안녕하세요!

Hello friends :) It's been awhile again, yes? I hope all of you are doing well. As for myself, I have been going through some interesting turmoil recently.

I am not sure if any of you were aware, but I suffer from chronic severe migraines. It seems to be stress and weather related mostly. Unfortunately, it has gotten so bad that I have actually lost my job because of it... so I am currently unemployed. The first time I have ever been unemployed since age 15 (I am now 26). I'm not sure what to do with myself, haha. So... as I seem to have a lot of time on my hands, maybe I'll get back to the texture grind... :)

Here are some lovely features in the mean time... Again, thank you everyone for continuing to use my resources even while I am away. It is very kind of you :)

WHO ELSE THINKS MIGRAINES ARE ONE OF THE SHITTIEST THINGS EVER?! I always seem to get them at the end of the week on my weekend off. And they ruin EVERYTHING. At least this time I managed to medicate myself enough to get rid of it so I can at least have a Sunday afternoon to get some things done... sigh. 

Today I'm updating the covers of my old bundle packages to match my newer ones... I want everything to match :XD: Also working on some new textures, I haven't submitted any new ones in awhile...

Anyhoo, have a happy fun weekend dudes!

Hey guys :heart: please make sure to follow these two groups for some awesome textures and renders:

:icontexturize: :iconrender-hq:

I am also currently looking for Contributors and Administrators for both of these groups (Render-HQ is newer) so if you or anyone you know may be interested please let me know :D Also please note that you do not have to make your own resources. If you find someone else's resource and you think it is quality stuff, you can always send a request to them to submit their work to a group. Or you can help organize and keep folders tidy :3

Hey guys! Popping in to feature some artwork that has used my resources! Thanks again for being awesome dudes!

I also joined a pretty cool forum recently called GFXBattle! Anyone who enjoys making signatures or photo manips would have a great time! We're also looking for some people to help populate the resource department over there if anyone is interested :)

House my life

BOO! As we all know, I have this habit of disappearing... and reappearing. The past year has been absolutely CRAZY Waaaah! ! I took a position with a new company early last year and it has been a roller coaster. I have been working an average of 50-60 hours a week on top of battling my chronic migraines and depression/anxiety. Things are slowly getting a little better though. I am finally starting to find interest again in the things I use to love doing... and have a new-found interested in herbalism!

deviantART contest apology

I owe everyone who participated in my previous contest an apology for disappearing. Unfortunately there was a lot of things on my plate during that time and the contest fell to the wayside along with some other things. I do plan on doing something for each of the participants. I hope you are able to forgive me.

Star! using my resources

I want to thank everyone who has used my resources during my hiatus. I really appreciate the support and I am happy to be able to provide useful tools to the community. Below are some artwork features of those who have used my resources while I was away. I try my best to feature anyone who mentions me :D (Big Grin)
