Hey! Its been a while, right? Back in December, I finished my AA degree and now I'm all settled in at Flagler in the design program... In fact, I'm almost done with my first semester! Now that everything is well underway, I'm going to try and get back to what I love. I've got a few things to submit, and a few projects in mind. :D Spring Blink (Flagler has a short spring break...) is next week, so I'll have some time to work on cleaning up a couple of items to submit! :D

:wave: Just stopping by to say hi and whatnot. Hope everyone is well. To those I follow, sorry if you posted something awesome and I didn't see it. I had literally thousands of messages... So I just deleted pretty much everything :shrug:
I'm not "back," I just had an urge to check in :) Im getting my AA this semester, and I got accepted to a relatively prestigious design program at Flagler college... Maybe they will get me arting again :XD: Everything is good here. Hope everything is wonderful there.

Pretty much done

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 10, 2012, 7:04 PM



Hey guys, long time no... me :XD: Well, there is a reason for this. I've devoted a lot of time this summer trying to better understand myself. During this period of self-discovery, I have come upon some stark and somewhat depressing truths. One of which is the fact that I can't draw. I'm simply no good at it, so I am done trying. No more doodles or sketches. From now on, I'm only going to do things that I may someday do professionally, because the rest is unimportant anyway. SO most likely what you will see from me, if anything, is vector stuff, and conceptual stuff. Also, I'm done with 3D and game design for the most part... BUT I'M GONNA TRY MY HAND AT AUDIO PRODUCTION :la:

Also, I have a secret watercolor/Japanese ink project in the works. Its gonna be big. REAL big. :D

The new and the old

Journal Entry: Sat May 5, 2012, 3:53 PM



Just some updates

The new: College is out for the summer! :w00t: I haven't gotten all my grades back, but so far its 2 A's and a B (B in a class I thought i was going to fail :XD:)
I bought myself a "the new iPad" as a reward for sticking out 2 years of college hell :D I. Love. It. I can't wait to buy some art/design apps and see what this baby can do :) Also, I found a site where you can get premium apps for free legally! If you have an iOS device, let me know and I'll hook ya up :dummy:
From here out (at least for a while) I will be doing experimental designs and generally pushing the envelope. I feel like its time to break out. Its great. I finally feel like I'm doing this for me, and I don't give a damn about anyone's approval :XD: (people IRL that is).
FINALLY, I am going away to Ireland next Sunday for a MUCH needed vacation. :la:

The Old: I finally finished an album art job for a local band. I will post it if/when the CD's are released publicly :D
I am starting on the last Kiriban commission. I doubt the commissioner expects to ever see it at this point... Won't she be surprised :XD:
I am officially closing my comic series. I keep saying that I'm gonna continue it... but i have found that I'm lying to myself. I have no drive to do it, and more often than not, I forget. Maybe someday I'll pick it back up, but if I do, it won't be any time soon :XD:
FINALLY, I hope to be more active on dA now that school is out :happybounce:

1. For each of the 20 first people answering this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list!

2. If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger on the first place. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone.

*EDIT* I will still be around, I just won't have much to put up. I do have some class projects and a photo set that I may put up soon, but besides that, I won't be starting any projects till May. :D

Everything is now on hold until the end of the semester (May 1st).

All commissions, kiriban, personal projects, etc. are going to have to wait. It's crunch time =\

So for any of the Kiriban winners reading this (i suspect only one will :XD:) I have started all the projects, and I estimate them to be done sometime mid May. Sorry for the delay :D

I think I am slowly coming out of my slump. Starting to make some stuff that isn't crappy, and worthy of stand alone release :XD:
To that end, I have some stuff to put up over the next day or so. Still don't have enough sketches for the dump though.
Soon.... =D

Coming back

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 17, 2012, 11:48 AM



Hey y'all! I have a bit of an update. I have decided that I am going to try and do the sunday strip again. It will probably be inconsistently updated though... Also, I am going to continue NOT doing big projects. They burn me out too fast. Instead I will be doing lots of little things like speedpainte, studies, sketches, etc. They will be posted to my Tumblr soulkreig.tumblr.com/ , and when I have a bunch, I will post them here as a "dump" (10-20 items in one image).

I am still working on my new website and game, but the work goes slow. School is rather disagreeable this semester :XD:

Yo, yo, yo! I just heard the dopest shit today :icononionxdplz:

An industry leader in 3D graphics, DAZ 3D, is offering up most of their software FREE for a short period of time! All you need to do is sign up an account, and subscribe to their news letter. This is like $800 worth the 3D software for free! I already got mine =D I would advise getting these even if you don't intend to do 3D work. You never know when you will get the urge! Just start an account and follow the steps so at least the registration codes and access to the DL's are saved to you're username. No personal info is requested!

You may be asking whats the catch... well, I haven't found any obvious ones yet. To hazard a guess, I would assume they are hoping n00bz will download the software and the buy some unnecessary plugins (such as model kits, prefabs, and tutorials). These are for people who don't know what they are doing but want to look like they know shit :XD:

P.S. Just a head's up. I am offering a free commish to whomever catches my 15000th pageview! :la:

Hiatus

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 21, 2012, 1:05 PM



Hello y'all! Just a heads-up, I am going on an artistic hiatus for an undefined period of time. There are several reasons why I have decided to do this:

1) Am am finally starting to develop my first video game! I won't release any details this early, but I'm gonna work on it until its either finished, or I am completely discouraged. :icononionxdplz:
2) I am going to revamp my website. That will take some time, I'm sure... I hate web coding :iconcryforeverplz:
3) I am pulling back a little so I have more time for work, school, and relaxation.

THAT MEANS
I won't be doing the comic until further notice, I won't be doing any personal projects or commissions (like I ever get them :XD:), but I might upload class projects as I finish them... if they come out any good =D
I will keep up with my messages on a daily basis, but I may skip days here and there, so I'm still here, just less :)

Later Dudes and Betties!

<EDIT>
ONE MOAR THANG If anyone wants to help with the game (whether you model, code, mix audio or w/e) PLEASE contact me. I don't know how far I'm gonna take this. Right now I'm shooting for "freeware/Donationware" quality, bit if I/we get on a roll, I may seek online publishing. If you want a piece of that, drop me a note =D

little thoughts

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 11, 2012, 12:25 PM



The following is a bunch of little journal ideas crammed into one posting:

So yea, Valentines day is fast-approaching. Does ANYONE actually look forward to this holiday?

Don't you hate it when you give someone a llama and they post "thanks for the llama" on your wall? I mean, if you are gonna take the time to go to my page and say thanks, why don't you just give me one back. That's what MOST people do, give and get llamas. Llamas are kinda stupid an VERY pointless, but I still find this phenomena very odd.

SO, I have a Creative media project that I just finished. It came out BAD. So bad in fact that I will not be posting it. If it wasn't classwork, I would feel really bad for wasting my time on this. However, the project wasn't designed to look good, but teach us how to use digital pastels. Compared to the other projects in the class, its really very good. At least you can sort of make out what I was trying to draw.

I have an interesting idea in mind for this weeks comic. Its not going to be funny, but more introspective (yea, bet you're excited now). I hope the art eclipses the disgusting sentimentality.

I HAD A DATE LAST WEEK! It didn't go so well =(

This week was rough... and I almost fell into an emotional pit again, but I fought it off. I think I'm getting better =)

THAT IS ALL. I LOVE YOU, MY DARLINGS :iconhurrplz: Stay sexy, y'all :iconbadassplz:

Clearing something up

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 16, 2012, 11:43 AM



I said my comic series was going to reflect real life events, but I didn't say they would accurately reflect my feelings on the events :XD:
The last comic, I received a few "sympathetic" comments on. While I deeply appreciate everyone looking out for my happiness and well-being, I am in fact okay with being single. The comic was just a humorous twist on an event that happened last week. I certainly am not plotting suicide. I just have a dark sense of humor. If it came across too strong, please let me know =D
If I may ask, please disassociate my comic series with me personally =) It is a work of fiction with real life inspiration, just like any other comic series. It is not an illustrated diary :XD:
Also, I know I have had quite a few "break down journals"... I am going to try and not do that sort of thing any more. :XD:
