It's been a while...

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 11, 2013, 8:24 AM

I can't believe my last journal entry was written more than a year ago... Time really flies... And to think that I used to write these journal entries every other month really shows how my activity level downgraded from the last time I spoke with you guys..

I received my 7th DailyDeviation today, on my work "New Era" , and I thought why not cease this perfect opportunity to finally get off my lazy butt and write a new journal entry.
Well... here I am. And I just realized that I don't have much to talk about...
Well, I know it's cheesy, but to be honest I simply want to thank all the people that still follow, comment and favorite my work, you have no idea how much I appreciate the support I receive knowing I'm barely providing content anymore!
Also, thanks to JohanBriend for suggesting my work as a DD, check out his work he has some pretty cool stuff! ;)

New artworks coming soon, promise! :)
Thank you all (and for the few who read this entry), I love you.
Until next time hopefully!

News and Digital Arts Tutorial

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 31, 2011, 7:24 AM

Hi everyone,

Sorry for not uploading anything in a while but I've been extremely busy lately.
Now I'm back and should be more active with new pieces coming soon.

For the people interested, a full tutorial of my piece called "Aclyone" has been published on the latest issue of Digital Arts Magazine, which also made it on the cover.
I guess there's no need to say that I'm extremely honored by this situation ! :)…

On another note, thanks for the comments and all the other support I've receive lately even thought I'm not really active, truly appreciated.

Take care !

Got mah' 27'inch iMac Quad-Core i7!

Wed Aug 11, 2010, 11:05 AM

What a beast ! :wow:

I'm so happy, it's my first Mac and I simply love it. My old computer was showing age and photoshop was always lagging, so I had to move on. Even though I have no money left, I'm proud of my self and can't wait to create my first work on it (Coming soon!). I'll be back, promise :p

I wont say I'm a Mac cause I pretty much like PC too, both have their ups and downs, even tough Mac responds more to my personal choices.

Cheers! :ahoy: See ya soon

Summer News!

Thu Jul 8, 2010, 12:59 PM


So basically, I know I said before that this summer I'll work my ss off to post new works and try to improve my art skills, and I almost did in the first weeks of June, but now, it's seems that I just can't find time anymore(Yeah even in Summer) ... I'm working 40 to 50 hours a week lifting heavy stuffs all day long ... so it gives me few time for fun and family time and almost no time for Photoshop ...But it's okay, I really want a Mac Book Pro for the end of the summer and I'll try my best to earn it.

Anyways, I still have some projects to come, and one of them is ArsDigitalia which seems to go very well, we are working hard to make it the best possible even tough time is running. The first ArtPack is coming fast. :)

I probably wont post as much as I said but I'll try my best even though I won't have as  much time... Projects like ArsDigitalia will probably motivate me, so I'm not dead yet :D

Take Care ! :peace:

Summer Time!

Finally! No more school, homework, exams and projects anymore, I've been waiting for this moment forever. :woohoo:
So more time for Photoshop now, I know I almost didn't post anything the past months but now that I have free-time, I'll try to forgive my self with some digital works. :D

I already have some ideas in my head for personal works and one or two creations to do for ArsDigitalia's July art pack. Can't wait to see the results. :p

Plus, if I have the motivation for, I'll like to learn to code and improve my Web designing skills. But nothing sure, I'm just sayin' ;)  

So, that's it, you might see more from me since I didn't did anything for the past months. Hopefully :pray:

Thousands thanks for the thousands watchers

Quick word to thank you all, I just noticed that I reached 1000 watchers, I'm pretty surprised, thanks to each and every single one of you. I mean it, seriously. :tighthug:
