Hi guys! I haven't posted anything in quite a while. I actully have been working on a little side project that doesn't involve much drawing and I can't talk much about it yet.
However, last month I finished my second sketcbook of this year. It was a pretty big one. I have picked some of the drawings and posted them on my Artstation page. If you want to see them, you can visit the following link:…
Here you can find most of my Inktober stuff, some poses from life drawing lessons, some animals and other things. Hope you enjoy.
I would have uploaded these to deviant art, but it still doesn't have that feature where you can upload multiple files as one deviation and I am too lazy to combine everything in Photoshop, so I decided to use Artstation instead.

I haven't written anything in a while here, so I guess it's about time I do...
It's been a really long time since I've had any inspiration to do any kind of artwork and after I started doing felting I actually feel reborn. 
I guess it all started with the origami. I found some really fun tutorials on youtube and I decided to try them out. And it was so much fun to be able to do something with my hands and to make something that I can actually touch.
So I decided to find some tutorials for easy plushies and I found a tutorial for Susuwatari and I made them and I think, that they turned out adorable. 
At that moment I remember looking at my old gallery uploads and thinking how art will come back to me and I will be able to crate again, but it will be in a whole different form.
And the next morning I discovered the magic that is needle felting and I have been making the things that I have always wanted as a child from wool with my own hands and I find that to be really awesome and amazing. I know that I still have a lot to learn, but I guess that I will be becoming better with time.
So basically, what I'm trying to say is that from now on I will probably be doing more needle felting art, rather than drawing.
And the other thing is that if you're feeling that you are in an art block, you might just need to try something new.

Art block

I haven't updated my gallery in a while, as you can see. Truth is, I have an art block... I am drawing, actually. I have done a lot of sketches, but I just can't finish anything. I don't know why. It just doesn't turn out the way I want to. And I want to draw so bad... I have so many ideas...

I just got the result from my Japanese Language Proficiency Test... I PASSED! I officially have an N3 Certificate! I'm sooooo~ happy!
Also, I have been chosen for from my university teachers to go the Osaka University and currently I have a lot of work to do to actually go there... I still have to prepare some documents and study for the interview. This is why I will not be very active here on dA. I know I have commissions to do and I promise that I will do them before their deadlines. It's just that I won't have much free time until 5-th of March, which means almost no drawing until then. I am really sorry, but applying for the Osaka University means a great lot to me and I really want to succeed... If I get accepted I will be in Japan for one year and it will be like a dream come true. So please, wish me luck and have a little patience ^^;
