Hello world! It's time for one of those random updates from me you'll get every once in a blue moon... Except this time I got something(s):

If you're interested in a drawing/writing secret santa, check this out:
The Aurorium Secret Santa - Happy 2014 Sign Ups!:bulletred::bulletgreen::bulletred::bulletgreen::bulletred::bulletgreen::bulletred::bulletgreen::bulletred::bulletgreen:[Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green][Bullet; Red][Bullet; Green]
EDIT: Deadline has been extended until the end of November - tell your pals it's not too late! :D
Welcome!
Are you interested in joining the annual Aurorium Secret Santa -
having fun with holiday generosity while practicing your artistic skills?
If so, then our exchange signups are just below this introduction.

They're looking for more participants. Draw a character and have one of your characters drawn in return! Holiday draw sharing! Really cool. A deviant I follow always suggests this and, although I'll be busy, I am going to do this for once. This is the season for crazy new change I guess :).

Speaking of such, the big news in my life that some of you may be interested in (it just has me crazy excited): I'm quitting my job soon in order to pursue the completion of a video game I've been working on as a hobby. It just needs my undivided attention to become a reality, so I'll be working on that for the next year or so. It's a solo endeavor and, honestly, a pretty uncharacteristically risky undertaking for me. The uncertainty to follow is the only certainty it seems, but I've been doing research and I'm seeing that this is an achievable goal. So I'm taking a leap and chasing a dream.

Software, graphics, storytelling, control laws, audio, the works. Video game development. Woot! This will be a massive undertaking, but I've dabbled enough to feel out the possibilities, and my goal is to put a new game on Steam some time in the future. Other platforms to follow.

So... likely there will still be anywhere from 0 to few updates to DA, just like normal as of late, again due to work and life. But just in case people are interested here, I'll try pointing you to a demo video / website once video game development gets to that stage (which is still a ways off). Let me know if you guys are interested in this or have any comments or questions! (although with my lack of presence here I'd be surprised if anyone still follows me any more =P).

Later all! And have amazingly awesome holidays! Don't forget to check out the Aurorium if you're curious like I was! Deadline for application is pretty soon.

I enjoyed drawing, art, and animation growing up and at one point I considered it as a career option. But truth be told, I'm not good enough for that. I'm at some kind of "ok, but not great" point.

Anyway, I still draw and do other art at random so... yeah. Here's where I'll post it.

Whoa! Another birthday mega message! And it's just as awesome as last time. I can't even begin to generate a proper reply of equivalent magnitude... All I can say is thanks! Brightens the day.

Holy ... wow, that's a lot of birthday comment! Thanks for that! It's a little late delivery, but that's totally my fault for not checking DA more often. I dunno if that comment was epic copypasta or all unique, but it was AWESOME! Thanks again!

You are seriously underwatched for the quality of your work. I really admire your landscapes and backgrounds, and it's what I am going to start focusing on to really bring out the life and depth of my pieces. Beautiful gallery and wonderful work, I can't wait to see more.
