I've found that seeking out the right environment has been important in advancing my various projects and overall life quality. Joining this website provided me with new motivation and an exciting platform to share my art and creative writing. I appreciate all the opportunities for social interaction that I've enjoyed through this site over the years. It's been a real source of support through challenging times. Through enrolling myself in a "good fit" university environment, I've been able to explore numerous subject areas and pursue a greater level of depth in my biology/engineering studies. I'm particularly pleased to have the opportunity to study digital art/animation courses as an additional endeavor beyond my core major.
Several works in my gallery are rather involved school projects that I wouldn't have happened to create when working alone as I did in the years before I resumed taking art courses in a formal classroom/studio environment. I'm excited to receive formal instruction in this subject after working independently for so long. This spring term, I'm taking a 3D animation course where I plan to learn modeling, texturing, and rendering in a virtual environment. So far, I've created a cup, a fork, and a series of other simple creations. I've also written a few short stories in recent months, and I continue to seek feedback and critique on the first act of my novel-to-be. I plan to explore creating more poetry in the near future for an offline contest, so there could be some delay before I'd upload that here. In any case, multiple areas of my life are going fairly well at the moment. Whatever your goals and visions may be, it helps to not be discouraged by challenges. Moving forward with patient persistence can often carry the day. To all of my watchers and followers, thank you for your ongoing interest in my works!
