Quality works are what I want and need to achieve~~ feel free to browse~~~ :la: they still need MOAR practice~ =3=

I prefer Quality over Quantity... that's why I take awhile to update my artworks :nod: I try to explore more techniques and some improvements on my art too :dummy:

I guess this is the chance to think practically and all..

Well, to be honest, there's another branching point in my life that I recently encountered, although not happening yet. Mom and I talked about my plans after graduation and it seems like my whole plan to continue studying animation won't happen just yet, although since it has come to that verdict, I'm not sure myself whether to study after working a bit, or something. If I am to work now, I should just stick to that job and find alternatives myself :meow: (besides, I dont want to end up jobless in my later years lol ) Well, practically thinking, I chose to just stick to my current life continuing my studies in my final year. Oh yeah... It's already my senior year. :D although... It is not much thrilling as I expected it to be because I already know I won't be able to realize my original plan. So here I am right now, compromising with the situation: Graduate-Get a Job- Invest- [Insert my next-unsure plans here]. However, compromising with the situation alone ain't easy for me. (sucks to be me pretending all optimistic on the surface, ne? XD but I suppose it never hurts to be like this from time to time :nod: )

It's like... a battle of the mind versus the body.. I don't know, at some point in my life recently, there's something preventing me from doing my best. Though my mind tells me to continue working hard, my body won't just move, sort of that. However, my attitude, my perspective still remains unwavered. Although I won't deny that... at this point, I am wavering in terms of what I want to be, how I want my life to be, whether I can do it or not. I'm not sure, maybe I just don't have enough self-esteem right now. There are still things that really bother me right now, but I'm afraid disclosing them would just make me look like I'm being on self-pity and all, and also, I am also scared that people around me, including those I hold dear the most, would leave me so I can't really say for sure..

Right now, I am thinking of going on an indefinite hiatus here on DA. (as an artist, but not as an art appreciator or something, so I'll still lurk around a bit XD ) It's hard balancing things right now, given my current state and my situation that I am currently a College Senior doing Thesis stuff and On-the-Job Trainings. In terms of being artsy, I'll also have that one fixed along the way, I can't make decent artwork as I am right now, so I'll take awhile fixing myself for the time being.

Well... Only one thing's for sure. I am not throwing the towel in yet. I still can put up a fight. I have bigger dreams now, I just need to figure my way towards those dreams. I still have the passion for what I love, so at least, I dont intend to throw those away. :nod:

so long folks, :bye: I'm not sure when I'll be back, but I'LL BE BACK for sure and AS AN ARTIST :D
