Hey, soo... Updates?!

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 22, 2014, 10:08 AM
Yeah I'm still here, sort of. I'm not really in any state to be making regular posts right now, But things are starting to swing my way (properly this time). With any luck I'll be posting more often in the near future.

For those of you out of the loop, for the last couple of years I've been getting to grips with what I thought was hormonal chronic depression for most of my life. Turns out, nope, it was gender dysphoria all along. Funny that they tend to have similar symptoms.

This month I was finally given the go-ahead to start taking Testosterone and make a medical transition to male (I'm genderfluid, but far more comfortable being read as male). This is a huge step for me. I've been living as a guy for just over a year now and just admitting that to myself and telling people improved my moods tenfold.

I took my first shot last Friday and already I feel tons better. I have more energy, I'm more social, and despite the fact that I'm now hungry all of the time I've been losing weight and eating less.

I got a job part-time working in a bar which I love to bits. It's done so much good for me and gives me a little extra money to pay the bills when my student loans won't cover it.

I have a wonderful and amazingly supportive boyfriend who is the fucking light of my life.

And i'm not feeling so shit about my artwork anymore. Term starts soon, and I'm slowly getting back into doing things other than coursework. 

Ascendancy is still on hold for now. I'm considering turning it into a novel rather than a comic which gives me a little more freedom, however I'm not gonna stop drawing art for it. The story is my cyberpunk-baby.

My fantasy novel, too, will be getting a fresh start soon. Can't wait to start working on that.

So yeah, that's it. Been a wild couple of years but touch wood, things are going right properly this time.

  • Reading: A Song Of Ice And Fire
  • Watching: Dragonball
  • Playing: RuneScape
  • Eating: Lots of Cheese

More art! It's been a long time coming. This one took me far longer than it should have due to a new job and a complete reshuffle of my entire schedule over the last few weeks. More work from Ascendancy! 
Ascendant by Drikanyx
My first full digital painting in what feels like years. Spent a long time working on this one, first piece I've been proud of in a long while.

I recently got a program called Clip Studio Pro... which had the best painting tools I've ever used, hands down. Everything was so intuitive and pretty!

Honestly that post on Reddit has been a hard hit. I lost my temper and now I'm paying for it.

I appreciate you went through the trouble of following me but don't expect too much from me.

I know what you mean. I was debating on posting myself, but I know how reddit is about any art based major.

I was, yeah. Boy, that was a long time ago now. Unfortunately most of us are beginning to move away from Runescape now.
