Hello to you all once again! It's been a while since I spoke to you guys, hasn't it?

This current semester is finally undergoing its last 2 weeks. It's been pretty hectic this time around, but I'm just glad it's about to be over. It isn't all happy business, though. After I'm done with my finals, I'm planning to attend the graduation ceremony for a few of my college friends. It really sucks when you realize you're probably gonna be the last one out of your entire group to leave college...

Anyway, even though I'm currently trying to finally get a job somewhere (my first interview will be later on today, actually), I'm gonna have a LOT more time to start building up my skills again, which definitely involves drawing.

And that brings me to this: for those who asked me for a request before, I sincerely apologize for not being able to have the proper amount of time to work on them. Nevertheless, they will be done. I am dedicated to finishing them for good so I can move on to other requests/things. I thank you so much for the patience you've shown me so far.

Hope you guys have been well! And, just throwing this out there, for those reading this who are about to graduate college, congratulations! I wish you the best in your future endeavors!


Tessa, Dancer in the Courtyard (1/14/2018)
UUGGGHHH. I have finally returned. Well, sort of.

I can't even begin to tell you all how much of a challenge this was. I still don't know why I decided to go all out as I tried to with this piece. It was fun in a lot of ways, I'll admit, but man was it a commitment!

This piece marks a lot of firsts for me as an artist. It's the first time for me making a background, using a bunch of references to create the whole scene, working with colors, adding light and shading and simply presenting a piece that's not a sketch. Granted, I still am not a fan of how this looks and would love to spend some time to really make this a much better piece, but simply put, I'm tired of looking at the piece constantly and want to move on to other projects. Plus, I'm due back to university for my final year, so a remake of this is going to have to wait.

Regardless of my mixed feelings, I'm still very happy and proud of myself that I spent the time trying to make this from the ground up. This has definitely been a learning experience for me, and I wish to take all that I learned from this time and keep working on from here out.

Self-evaluation aside, this is my entry for the :iconcapcom-bellydancers: contest. I decided to go off the beaten path and tackle a fine lady that wasn't one of the usual fighting game girls that others drew. After doing a bit of research, I found an old arcade fighter called Red Earth, and Tessa, the lovely woman you see here, is the main female wizard of the game. I rolled the dice and tried to make her into a lovely dancer.

As usual, hope you all enjoy! Stay on the lookout for a journal update very soon regarding the near future and what I plan on doing.

Hey, still want me to draw something?

Hey, sorry for the really late reply. I began university again and was swept by all the new work/projects for the new semester.

I finally have a little free time now, so I'll send you the details shortly over a note.
