It's been awhile.
Anyway, it's a great feeling to do freelance for a living. I remembered just barely a year ago, my family and friends weren't too fond of my decision. Many months away, I'm quite glad how it works out.
I started doodling around with Photoshop 5 some seven eight years ago. I still remember how I was attracted to the PS filter, in fact I still keep all the images I did those time. It became a hobby, I would show-off the crappy images to my friends in school. Back then, the art scene wasn't as popular as it's today. I guess the internet age has only just begun as the impact wasn't as widespread as the present.
And it wasn't about another year before I tried the airbrush tools. I remembered it was Chinese New Year eve and I wanted to show-it-off to my relatives. Haha. So, I decided to draw a goat as it was the goat year, then. I think it turned out pretty okay (definitely not by today's standard ). I guess that's the reason I've decided that starting this year, for every Chinese New Year ahead, I'd dedicate something for the family.
Years of drama ensued. I shall write more whenever I could.
"Hey. I think i saw your picture on this website/blog here CLICK HERE"
or anything likewise, from anyone (even your own friends),
IGNORE IT AND HIDE IT!

I might not have replied to each and everyone of you but suffice to say, I have read each and single one of your comments. They are all helpful, one way or another, may it be a critism or a compliment.
But I guess that is what art is all about, eh? As everyone has their different views and likings, art provides a common ground for people of varied and very personal taste to come together and just enjoy.
Haha... well once again, thanks. Don't forget to have a nice day!
If any wishes and any promises made that has not seen actions, this is the year and the time to do it.
And this shall be my new year resolution.
In the end, I feel bad that I wasn't keeping up with the community well. But I promise that will change. I'll do more artworks as well as to share anything useful (whether it's theory or technique). If I can be of help to anyone, feel free to drop me a note. I'm happy as long as I can help.
Yes, this year means so much to me. I remember, when I 'succesfully' painted a goat right about a year ago, same time as it's right now. And, I can look at myself, from a third person view, how I've evolved, in terms of painting ability over this short time. Even the goat looked ugly now, it's my pride back then, something that even my mum and friends alike adored.
And till lately, I've witnessed the destruction of my own dream, my dream career of being a graphic designer, upon realising that this isn't the path I'm going to be. But who knows?
Right now, I'm involved with a Half Life 2 MOD team. I'll post a few up very soon. But, then besides art, I learn alot from other aspect as well. I understand myself better. And still, alot of promise to fullfill. (I'm just tired of compromising)
I'd love to elaborate, but my instints tell me its going to be even more boring than reading a bible. So..
Anyway, happy new year to everyone out there. And may we drown in our pool of round tonight.
I've become a slave to Ragnarok Online!..
wen ur feelin bored and stupid. =]
I'm lost in life.. I dun know what's the meaning of life.. and I've no idea what to pursue in life.. if I get tons of money, so what?.. and with it, I get tons of joy, so what?.. these things are not meant to last.. nothing is permanent..
I used to love thinkin of travelling round the world.. have a taste of all the local delicacies.. and someone to share with all these things.. but that needs money..
two weeks of havin an internship with a graphic company and it felt like an eternity already.. two weeks and i take 5 days leave.. i couldn't bear it.. the emptyness.. the boredom.. the lack of inspiration and motivation.. local corporate design not sth i'd like to do..
i forfeit before i even had a glance of good things to come.. now im thinkin what should i choose, engineering.. accounting.. computer science?.. they all sounds the same.. jus earn different bucks..
im lost.. truly.
Should I make it the one of my previous stuff
~or should I make one for a new one?
How about a tut for some fruits?..
