*COUGH* Apologies for the cobwebs; it's kinda been a while since I've been here. Decided to revisit the place since I am really planning on starting some art again (Have I ever truly stopped planning on starting art again?), and I figured that at least visiting dA/tumblr again might spark a bit of motivation. It's hard to believe I've been drawing online for eight years now. That's more than a third of my life!
But speaking of life, nothing's really changed now that summer's over and I'm done being an undergraduate. Graduate school is (unsurprisingly) harder than undergrad uni, but it's also a big change of pace. In case I never told anyone here, I'm continuing my education in Chemical Engineering in Texas, which is a good 1700 miles away from all the friends and family I ever knew. Texas itself is pretty different from California (SO. FUCKING. HOT.), but being on a college campus is still a bit of the same. But what this all means for me is that on top of getting the engineering gears grinding again, I'm also getting acclimated to a new setting, new climate, and the crazy idea of taking care of my own apartment (which I am paying for—in addition to most of my tuition—with a student loan... YAY DEBT!). So that's what I've been up to.
Additionally, since I haven't had a good outlet for my artistic creativity, I've had pent-up ideas bouncing around in my head like crazy for these past few months. For everyone (all four of you!) who finds this relevant: Forget everything you've ever read about my TEC (collectively renamed evomagi a while ago but mentioning it again since I only said it like once) story and universe, except for the main characters. The original plot line is pretty much entirely non-canon, since I've basically rebuilt the entire universe from the ground up. That kinda happens as you get older and learn more about how the universe works and get better at speculating the future. lol. I've accumulated pencil doodles galore (Thermodynamics can be a chore sometimes, okay?) so perhaps I'll get around to posting some of the better ones.
So what's new with you guys?
