Hello everyone. Yes, I'm still alive!

I guess first of all, I owe you all an apology for my absence. I usually think of myself as a normal guy ho just happens to have a Deviant ART account, so once in a while I upload something I feel like. But as the months come by, I noticed a lot of people have bee checking my work and followed me in hopes for more, as well as people requesting permission to post some of my pieces in their groups. I dare to say I have grown fans who like my work and wait patiently for some more. Some have been here from the very beginning, and some are so new that haven't even noticed I have been away for quite some time now, like 6 months to be more precise.

Now, the reason for this is because of two things: College and laziness. The most powerful, college, is the main reason. Many know, many don't, but I study Architecture. I love it with all my heart, and if you know something about this career, it literally sucks your personal life. I have come to realize that unlike my normal job at the chocolate store, an architect (not yet, but in general) doesn't get the chance to clock in and clock out... you never do. It's a 24/7 job, you always think, breath, feel architecture every single time, even you dream architecture (not even kidding, I have been so deep in projects, some of them even appear in my dreams). Back to the point, I don't have it easy in my college education. Most people get financial aid and stuff like that. In my case, I have to pay for my own education, so my job and school combined, never leave me any spare time for myself. I haven't played video games in months until I finally started my summer time. I've been stressing with projects barely finishing at the last second, some of them not even finished at all (I'm an over achiever, so I usually do more than I have to, but it costs me). So, I sort of abandoned my work at Deviant ART because of that. I see my education as the most important thing for me right now, and even though I was dying to update something in here, I couldn't let my architectural work alone for 5 minutes, I didn't have the privilege of even 5 minutes. But, we all do what we can to improve ourselves.

For some reason, my icons have been quite the success among many people. To be sincere, when I designed the very first Windows 7 folder, it was just because I didn't have anything to do, and that was a time killer back in the summer when I had just started using photoshop. But people kept requesting more colors, so I answered. Now, well, all the icons I have done, is really just for the people who have been supporting me. But, why haven't I continued?... why haven't I finished the rest of the colors and the last video folder?. Well, laziness... well, more than laziness, is lack of inspiration. I have been around Deviant ART and the web for so long, I have seen some fantastic works beyond my understanding of creation. They seem to be generated from 3D softwares and rendering softwares of high knowledge requirement. When I see those fantastic icons, and I see mine, I feel like mine are nothing and worthless. So, why should I try to design some crappy looking icons when there are people who really specialize in doing so?... That's part reason why even though I have had some time now because of the summer, I haven't uploaded anything so far.

But finally, today something came up. I was at work, and decided to continue with this commissioned tattoo from a friend that I haven't given work in months. As some of you know, I have an HP Touchsmart Tablet/Laptop (bought it with the intention of doing more photoshoping). I bough a laptop stand, that tilts my tablet in many heights, and purchased a cheap USB Mac-style keyboard to have available as my keyboard is covered in tablet mode (design flaw?)... for some reason, today was the very first time when I combined all of these items together, and they worked with photoshop so beautifully! I was able to increase the accuracy and the speed of the pen tool with my pen on the tablet and the control key available on my other hand. I have finished such tattoo just today, and I feel now I feel like I can do much more.

So, to sum things up, I am resurrected, and I will try little by little creating more things, so I can keep learning from my mistakes and create what I want to create. I attempt to start learning how to properly use brushes in the program to start doing digital paintings. They will suck ass, but it's a start!...

Plus... I have to make an announcement. Money is really always tight with me, therefore, I will offer my services to whoever asks for them (no, no prostitution you perverts, although I look good *wink* ... haha). I will accept commissions to design mainly tattoos, or logos, or things like that. I have done such all my life, and I think it's time I take this small talent to help e out a little bit. So, if you or you know somebody who is looking for some cool tattoo design or something related to photoshop, maybe we can work something out :)

Well, for now, I'll upload my ending results for today's work on the horse tattoo, and I'll try to have the rest of the colors of the already finished icons uploaded by the end of this week, and the last video icon in the next two weeks.

Hope you can bare with me, but I'll do my best to make my page what it once was. A normal page with some followers :P

Thank y'all!
