Life is complicated..I'm going to be up front and honest to say the one reason why it's been so difficult for me to focus on art in the past 6 years years is because I've been trying to overcome a personal struggle to accept myself as a LGBT individual. This is personal, but it's a truth that needs to be said.
I studied to be a fantasy illustrator for 3 years from 2009-2011 but stopped my artistic endeavors to figure out myself and my identity. It hasn't been easy as accepting myself has been the most difficult challenge I've ever faced in my life. The majority of people in society sees people like me as..well, LESS than most people.
But even than I'm grateful for all the experiences I've had, even the unpleasant ones, because now I feel unstoppable.
My goal now is to complete 4 new illustrations in the next 2 weeks and to start on working on commissions by the end of this year.
For all of you reading this - thank you very much for taking the time to read this humble journal entry. For my followers -
Slow process..Sorry for the inactivity guys! I've been practicing doing life studies to touch up my skills but the good news is that it's working because this image is finally progressing somewhere...
Here's the main illustration I've been working on from time to time. Eruri yaoi of these two having a moment with the sunset breaking through the clouds Drawing real life clouds before painting the ones in the pic definitely helps as do photo references.
Gonna try to finish this one in the next week. Wish me luck!
Updates and tumblrThis past month I've been working on touching-up my skills. I seriously can't believe I stopped doing art for two years! I've been running into problems with my work so I've decided to go back to step 1 and work on the fundamentals.
Darnit I just want to be good at art and make pretty pics and yaoi! Lol..
I guess in the end, there's no other choice other than to enjoy the process..
Also - I now have a tumblr blog!
Hello 2015!!Hey everyone! Again, so sorry I haven't been active much on DA. So far 2015 has been off to a great start for me; hope this year's also been treating you all good as well!
I never thought I'd say this but does it seem like drawing fanart is more enjoyable than originals. For some reason whenever I draw originals I become a super-perfectionist but with fanart I can let loose and enjoy.
Anyway I hope you guys like Attack on Titan because there's a whole load of fanart on it's way!
I'm back!!!!I'm not dead yet..
I spent the last couple years figuring out what I want to do for a career and I've came to the conclusion that being an artist is the life for me.
So, there will be a lot more new drawings and paintings coming along
Sometimes it takes years to figure out want you want out of life, but I'm grateful that I've figured it out!
MOdeling Page..Hey guys! I started another account for my modeling career: http://model-azzy-x.deviantart.com/ . Check it out!
I'm still making art these days. it's just been going slow. Picked up lots of hobbies. Been happy, life is good!
Trying something new..I'm curious of who actually reads my journals..
So, just to find out, anyone who comments below may actually get a gift art from me! I'll select anyone at random and send them a note about ideas and such. Since I'm very busy, expect a one-month waiting time before your gift is finished.
You also need to be one of my watchers. I'm seeing this an opportunity to thank the people who have been keeping track of my art and urging me to keep making more

Finally..Feels weird to be back here on deviantart. I barely reconize most of the pictures in my gallery because I have improved by a lot. So much for my last New Years resolution (what was it, to post something here once a month?).
For the past few months, I've been sorting through personal problems and just moved to a new apartment. Now I hope I can focus all my time and energy to art!
Thank you to all my watchers! I have (or had) some DA friends here, sorry to abandon you guys. I have a lot of deviations to sort through, but I'll get to you guys soon enough.
Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
