Well it’s another update for everyone. :D Just a few things I want to clear up and get out there. Well, onto business:

First thing I want to say is that very recently I passed the 3900 page view mark with a total of more than 8400 deviation views. I have no one else to thank but all of you who :+devwatch:, :+fav:, and support my work. Thank you all. :D

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For this update:

I know that many may be wondering why in the past few weeks or so it seems that I have just been surfing dA commenting or to some feel like I’ve disappeared off the face of the planet, but the following explanations should make things clear. I’ll start by listing a few reasons as to where my time is spent:

- School – Yes, I’m nearing the end of my final year before I start university and while I already have chosen a university I’m maintaining the least amount of effort possible to keep a decent enough average to attain an entrance scholarship. So yes, June will be a moderately busy month for me school wise, but it’s not the only reason why I’m busy.

- Hanging out - Well I’m trying to spend as much time with my friends before we head off to different universities, with some staying on campus meaning once the new year begins it’ll be harder to hang out so I’m trying the best I’ve can.

- Creativity Slump - Yes, it’s happened at times before and it has happened again; I’ve lost my incentive to creative new pieces and I have a few concepts sitting around barley begun or not even in planning stages. I hope I can work through this as time goes on.

While those are only 3 reasons as to why work hasn’t been put up, there are other reasons and I’m not in any position to release all the little issues involved, the former 3 should suffice. While this all may seem gloomy, there is still a chance for my “spurts of creativity”, hell, a new deviation could be put in the next 15 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day or even a week, you don’t know and I don’t even know. :D

Also, be sure to check out the new dA Spotlight at the end of this journal, it’s worth it.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Following Is Important News From My Previous Journal:

1. I was able to complete another concept using a light-type beam of energy which is apparent in my latest piece called Pulse. In the future I will be considering redoing this piece to fit another design which I scraped for the current version of the piece.

2. I was able to complete my 3 piece series entitled The Rise of a Planet. I enjoyed working on it and I’m thankful for all the support and praise those pieces have received. I like to thank everyone for that. You can view the 3 pieces and the cover-piece for the series here:

->dA Spotlight<-

In this update I want to spotlight :iconshadowed-sphinx:. He is fairly new to dA, but he has a lot of good photographs, but I’ve learned he has a real passion from writing, so please check his work out and tell ‘em I sent you, you’ll enjoy it. Also, be sure to check out his exert of writing called Excerpt: Capturing Shadows a really well written piece Thank you.

dA Spotlight Info

There’s two ways you can be featured:

1. Send me a note explaining in a few lines why you feel you should be ‘spotlighted’ and send a link to one of your deviations which you think you really put your soul into.

2. The second way is through the comments. In every handful of comments I usually get a comment from someone who really explains what a deviation of mine might mean to them and then also offers tips for any discrepancies. If I feel your words hold above average merit I’ll consider you as a candidate.

I hope this really helps artists be noticed or get a few extra fans through my profile. Thank you.

Well enough for now. Hope to update more later on. :D

Thank you so very much for the spotlight, though I really hadn't expected it -- my work is what I see whether out in the world (mostly the swamp) or the worlds I create in my head.

I know about the creativity slumps where life intrudes, I have several characters drumming their fingers on quantum tables in my mind talking about how I need to get my arse busy and get them to their destinations (good news is I provided a beer and lounge rather than making them hang in that valley above the battlefield)

Enjoy the school and the friends, take lots of fotos, and enjoy the time before college -- one day you'll look back and say "dang, I almost forgot when I did that..."

Keep up the good work, the vistas in your mind are awesome

I want to first start off by saying your comment to me, just solidifies why I choose you for the spotlight, you truly have some creative writing in everything you say. I only hope now that many through my page flock to yours to see your work.

Also, thx for support, 3 weeks left to think back on 4 years of great fun and friends, just gotta keep moving in this hectic life. :D
