It's been a considerable chunk of time since I was last in these whereabouts. This has been due pretty much to working full time, and then trying to study full time on top of that.
this has had mixed success. 

The net result is that I'm not starving to death, and I'm gradually getting better at game art. I'm also not getting much sleep and I would say that by most standards, I have virtually no life. I don't have time for one. I had one once... but 'having a life' is over-rated anyway. (that's what I keep telling myself ;))

I'm still studying game art, and I've been doing a lot more 3D than 2D. (as that is a bit of a departure from most of the stuff I used to post, I haven't really thought about posting any) I'm enjoying it, but at the same time, I rush from subject to subject, and practice a lot, without really feeling the need to actually finish anything (another reason not to post, I used to post a lot of wip's, and really I don't want to post things that I won't have time or desire to finish anymore).

I am gradually getting to a point though where I will need to be finishing things up to build a portfolio, and thought it might be fun to post at least any concept style or generally 2D stuff I finish up, I do find myself missing interacting with people on dA, and though I still don't really have any frik'n time, it would be nice to drop by from time to time.

A few folk here may remember me, to you guys I say 'yo! I'm alive! I hope you are all happy and in good health!' 
to the rest I say 'Hi! thanks for dropping by!'

lets see if I can update this in less than 18 months ;P
