Hi there everyone!
I know that I haven't such a large fanbase, but I feel that I need to apologize for those who spend some time looking at my gallery, progresses and so on. So, I'm so sorry if I've not replyed to you, or continued the "Fav months" journal thing or else but I've passed though times.
I've got three months of hell: I've ran through shitty things that happened to me and also I had to try to study hard as fuck for my college exams. I'm not gonna tell what happened to me, it's still a "fresh wound" if I can say that, and I'm trying to not think about it constantly. So you may ask why am I telling this? Because my dA journal is one of the few places where I'm feel "safe" to hint to that thing happened to me. You think that that's stupid, uh? Yeah, you're right... But, you know, that sometimes you had to deal with things slowly, clarify what you feel and then talk to friends and family to what bothers you. I'm still on a rollercoaster of emotion right now, so I'm try to chat with my closer friends normally because I'm fine. Really, I'm ok, except for a few moments of "down-ness", I don't want to bother them or make them anxious. I need a bit of silence to re-balance my thoughts away from THE question: are you ok? Beside that, it's always kind of funny to see how there's some people that hurts you but you can still feel how they loves you (just in a different way that you think) while other people, maybe really close to you, that hurts you because even if they're trying to be kind, you still feel a lil' bit of hypocrisy or not a genuine interest. It's quite complicated to explain, I hope you can understand!
Let's focus on my college life for now: I've planned the work that I have to do in my first semester and luckly it turns out that this time I can do one exam per month. You think that it's not a big deal? Think twice, because thanks to the awful rules of my faculty I normally had to take 4-5 exams in one single month. How amazing is that?
This summer I couldn't spend much time on dA or on Photoshop, but I've done some draws on my sketchbook while I was waiting for the bus, or in my bed before sleeping: I used all the spare times I've got, and I'm gonna post them here in my gallery soon.
While I was more "free" (thanks to my hard works studying) I've focused on finishing a very special illustrator for a friend of mine. That's not a commission but a gift to a strong woman that inspires me so much, a close friend of mine with much more harsh times that I have. The illustration itself is an inspiration for me, not only for improve my style and my digital skills but an inspiration to move on, to not wait for better times to come but instead run for them, and literally fight to be happier.
I want to share that with all of you, hoping that you can find your golden light to follow, and finally reach that. I'm gonna post that in my gallery after I gave her the print of the digital illustration.
See ya soon!
