I’m finally back, and some more updates on new projects

It took me quite some time to finish some work I had to do for school and some other things. But I am finally ready to start work again. I apologize for disappearing again, but the research paper took much longer than I thought. Now that is finally done and I will finally be able to work on some of my artwork, and some other projects such as some armor for a cosplay set me and my group plan to take for next years anime convention.

Here’s a sneak peek at what I am currently working on. This is Camus’ armor from Saint Seiya. There are about four more armors I will be working on. So I will not be saying what they are and let you guys take a guess as to what they will be.

I had to take this pile that I had all jumbled up and rebuild it back into the armor. That takes quite a bit of work, but I hope to take the template and finally make the cuts to the foam and build the actual armor. I currently have two armor templates done, next will be to build the next two.

What do you guys think?

Another year has passed, I am a hopeless dream chaser.

Man, this year went by quite fast… I can’t believe I’m already a year older. I feel like I have to do much more this year. Since I was in high school I had some plans set out for when I got to around this age. So now that I am a year away from that age, I have to make sure I  accomplish those goals. One year to make this long Artist Project a complete and utter success. This year was a good one. I made a lot of great progress over all and was able to officially launch this site. I made a decent amount of sales, and got my name out there a bit more than before. Overall I guess I can’t complain over the progress I made this past year.

But that doesn’t mean I should slow down and feel that it is good enough. I still have much more work to do to make this a viable source of income that I can live off of completely. And for that I had some strategies that I had been working on over the last five years. I didn’t make use of them because of my lack of skill and money. But that has been steadily been getting better to the point that I am confident I can make it work properly now. Those plans will be completely revealed as I unleash them. But overall it has to do with offering my services locally, creating advertisements for my college, business cards and a couple of more things that will be disclosed shortly.

This year I hope to go all out and show what I am capable of, I want to prove to myself that this was the right decision. And that following your dreams should not be something to be afraid of pursuing. It takes a lot of work to make it a possibility, specially when one doesn’t know how to go about it. But with trial and error I managed to pick up quite a bit of knowledge on the matter. Now it is just a matter of executing it. I may fail, but I will learn from each time I fall and pick my self up and try it all again knowing what doesn’t work. It might take me five tries per strategy, but I will get it eventually. And what works I will be posting it up here so that those who wish to follow this path have something to guide them on their own journeys. It might not be the best guide, but at least it is something that could give them an idea of what to expect so that you guys who are also hopeless dream chasers like me can grasp a future where you are doing what you love.

Thank you all who have been following my progress and hopefully getting some help with my experiences.

(usually I do a drawing for my birthdays but I have a test and have been busy with other engagements so I won’t be able to do it this year)

Here’s hoping for another great and even better year!

Strange fireballs in the sky. 11/1/15

No sound because there was really loud music in the background. Don’t want to risk getting flagged. Besides, there was no apparent sound coming from the lights, and if there was the cars and music made it unnoticeable.

I was ordering something to eat from a “lonchera” when suddenly we all (all that were waiting there) noticed some strange light going up high into the sky. It was illuminating it’s surroundings quite well, there were very sparse clouds at the time which were only noticeable because of the light emitted from this strange light. Then all of a sudden as it reached high into the sky it was later revealed that it was more than one. As can be seen there were four strange lights. I don’t know if you guys will be able to see it, but these lights looked a lot like fireballs. The strange thing is that they weren’t just falling down. But it seems like they were dancing, maneuvers maybe? It was quite strange. It felt like these lights were being controlled. My phone had broken recently so I had to use my dad’s who was right next to me. But since I wasn’t used to his Motorola I wasn’t able to capture the whole thing. If you look closely you can see the tails of the balls of fire?

Did any of you guys see these, or anything like it. And if so, what do you guys think it is?

By the way, I was looking North when looking at these lights.

Also, here are some photos I shot while setting up the phone to take video (click to enlarge):
