Back when I wrote the previous journal entry, I was in the middle of my army service. It was October and it felt so daunting, knowing that I have yet another year to drag myself on. Do not get me wrong, I definitely did acquire a lot of life skills, lessons and the likes, and while I do enjoy firing my rifles, two years of mandatory service were just… long. I did kept thinking of better ways I could have spent instead since I didn't want to be drafted in the first place. But, like I mentioned, I did learn a lot and I'm certainly am grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of my country's defense. 

I was fortunate enough that majority of my weekends were left untouched by the unit I was posted to as I have heard situations from my friends that they had ‘activation’ in the middle of their Saturday night for quite a number of times. For those who would like to know, ‘activation’ is a form of call-up whereby they have to return back to their camp and be on standby formation within an hour usually (Or shorter depending on the level of the emergency status). So, yea, I had my weekends free to practice my artsy stuffs, which is nice.

Anyhow, as cliche as the phrase goes, time flies right pass me and I have finally completed my service. I’m beginning a new semester of class in a new school. This time round, I have decided to take a leap of faith and opted for a design course at FZD instead of an engineering one, which I was a student of previously before my army terms. 

  • A quick rewind - I was enrolled in an Aerospace Diploma back then but it didn’t really cut out for me midway during my course of study. I took up drawing as a hobby and found out that I had more passion for it. Long story short, I kept on teaching myself during my free time then and made an option to pursue art after my service. 
So, yea, I will be attending FZD's curriculum for the next year and hope that I can improve myself over the following months. My goal right now is to land myself on a job in the entertainment industry as a concept designer or a concept illustrator after graduation. I've heard its tough times for these positions right now, but I can't let that stop me now. It's all out for me since doing this is my back-up plan to engineering.

I don't know how often I can continue with MLP fanarts from here as I've been told that FZD has TONS of assignments, and I'm also not like the famous MLP artists out there with works that can sustain their viewers, but I will try to upload whenever I can. If not, I can probably show my school's stuff instead. 

~To my watchers, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the supports these past years.

Welcome and thank you for checking out my gallery.

I'm currently serving my two years of military service and it has been a little difficult trying to find the time to do art-related stuffs. With the weekdays spent entirely in camp, I am somewhat a little unresponsive. It's a surprise to myself that I'm able to upload anything.

I appreciate the comments everyone have given me. As a self-taught artist, those compliments serve a huge motivational boost to me. I will try to reply to all of it, but if I don't, it also doesn't mean that I don't care about it. I certainly do acknowledge them. Honest. I just prefer to respond when I actually do have something to say, and not just reply for the sake of replying.

Keep calm and wear that smile of yours everyday!
