Concept Sketches
Had these scanned a long time ago and forgot about them - a pirate bunny, with a mech leg. Just some initial ideas while my friend was listing the character's specs. 
Looking by Liren
Just a quick drawing I did and painted with watercolor pencils just for fun - deer looks more pissed off than initially intended but oh well.

My art may have been taking a break, but I blame the cold. I create even when i'm sicker than sick.

Love the Pandaren expansion of WoW. Everyday I find more beauty in what an amazing job the game developers created.

Early Morning Thoughts

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 20, 2014, 6:18 AM
Sipping coffee paired with delicious coconut creamer hand-picked by Jerry and I, I begin the day contemplating many aspects of my life. I am 28. I conquered many challenges that were foolish enough to get in my way growing up. I also spent an exorbitant amount of time feeling as though these challenges were personally designed to hinder my adult life. It was also spent battling feelings of paralyzing worthlessness.

Some days saw sudden setbacks, flares of memories of the days of hurt, only to be banished for another time when I'd see the smile on my man's face when I'd come home. Other days the lingering sense of time wasted and emotions spent conquers reason and attacks the sense of accomplishment and pride I should feel everyday. 

I am not just 28, college-graduate and a career-minded individual, with a bright future ahead with my love. I have depth and emotional understanding of what it takes to live as more. I just sometimes forget to give it the strength to battle those feelings of worthlessness.

I am everyday learning what it means to be a leader. And it starts from within. You have to lead yourself and stand up to the thoughts that only make you feel like your past was filled with wasted time. It was not. We just, as humans, sometimes spend too much emotional time on being hurt, rather than being happy we can get up and keep going.
