Hey guys! How you all doing? I've been super quiet lately cause I've been very busy, and intimidated by my 15K backlog of notifications to get through Keef Shook Plz and putting it off for future Killy's problem. I... kinda need to deal with it XD I know that most of it is deviations to look at so... I really hope I don't resort to mass deleting but I may need to T.T 

Anyways, I've been really busy! Since my last journal in early February talking about how I was getting into water colours, I've been doing a lot more water colour art that I haven't posted cause well... I'm learning, and a lot of the pieces aren't going to turn out how I want it to, and that's ok. Just know that I am still having a lot of fun with my colours. I ended up buying an olive green water colour to help with my skin tones, cause I wasn't able to make a good olive skin tone to colour Silvyr with. I'm not able to get a WAY better match- I just haven't scanned anything with the results :D IT's really bugged me that I'm still VERY bad at skin tones in general, so I think I'm going to make it my next priority, and I'm not sure how I'm going to do it cause skin tones are so affected by local colours versus light :( I have a few people giving me tips though, so hopefully I can figure it out :) It's just... very vulnerable being new at things as you can imagine ^^

Since my last journal, I've been rehabilitating a rolled ankle back to health. I injured my ankle late November, and my ankle swelled up like a tennis ball. since then, most of the swelling has gone down, but not gone, so I went for a second opinion at the physio, and found out my arch was gone in my right foot, and my ankle was rolled. Since late February, til now, I've been doing physio work and stretches and heat to strengthen my whole ankle cause it was super weak, and 2 months later, it's strong again, so I'm hoping I can go back to the gym again, even though the puffiness is still there. I'm hoping it doesn't come back, but it seems to flare up if I sit down for too long >.>

Lastly, I'm working on my first comic in ages! Like... to sell! I don't know if it's apparent, but I've been having a LOT of fun with playing my new Dungeons and Dragons character, Silvyr Rose :D He's the rainbow haired half elf in my recent art and Dungeons and Dragons folder :) I'm going to do a comic about his journey in the game, or atleast some of it. I just need to translate a role playing game to comic reading structure, and change all of the copyright content so I'm not stealing from the campaign... which is going to be tricky. It's actually easier to start from scratch, but I can't get Silvyr's character to work in a unique storyline without a HUGE amount of world building and reworking of his character T.T It's going to be fun though :) Stay tuned for art from that :D

Anyways- That's all for now! Tell me how you're all doing! I haven't chatted here on DA for ages :) Who's still lurking around and chatting? :) Is 2018 treating you well?

A life lived with width, breadth, and above all else, depth is the best kind of life, and you have lived another year of such a life.  Take pride in the undeniable achievement of a worthwhile voyage of discovery through time.  May glory and grandeur not be vicarious experiences, may you plumb the depths and find knowledge, beauty and treasure, may your dreams not elude you and may flashes of inspiration and insight linger to enrich your own days and dreams, and the lives of others.  A very happy birthday to you, and you will not be alone in celebrating the happy miracle of your existence.

May you find this a year of solid accomplishment, of a strong and justified sense of vindication in all that you do.  May you never grow so firm in your convictions that you become immune to reason, may you never grow so flexible that your backbone disappears.  May you face courtesy with courtesy, honesty with honor, and never allow yourself to become soiled by the vileness of a cause or opposition.  Remember what you believe and that for which you are fighting, welcome a repentant brother, be just as implacable as the grimmest foe.  Rejoice in victory, heal from defeat, rise from both to fight with all you have to offer again.  A very happy birthday to you--and may you be ever a Happy Warrior.
