I'm not talking about my traditional artworks. I'm talking about my digital artworks.

I feel so insecure right now because look at all these artworks I'm browsing and adding to my favorites. These artists are so professional while I'm...well, a crap.

And no, I am not posting this to seek attention. I just feel awful for myself that I needed to degrade myself again in order to improve. Yes, I have been practicing and practicing even though school is in the way HAHAHAHA I CRI. 😭😭😭

My art skills did improve for over the past four years. Although, it felt like I just leveled up from a total noob to a total beginner. Analogy: In computer language, it felt like I mastered C program then moving to C++. Yes, I am a hobbyist but I still feel like my digital arts are still in total basic level. I really need to improve and I need to practice even more. BUT I NEED TO STUDY FOR MY FINALS AND I NEED SLEEP 💤💤💤

And I basically lack digital art materials. I've been saving up to buy a graphics tab but because school is an asshole, I had to use my savings to pay for the tuition and other requirements. Plus, I buy one or two fictional books every month. Ghaaad, my budget's not enough. 

Please don't suggest that I have to sell my artworks here. They're not worth a penny...yet. I really need to find a job. Part-time is enough since I am still a college student. 😶

As for the digital applications, I'm contented with Paint Tool Sai, Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC. I just need three more things: Ipad Mini, a scanner and graphics tab.

Wow Kath, you really need to save thrice the amount than what you're usually saving. 😂😂😂😂😂

Yep, I need to improve. I cannot depend on provided backgrounds for my artworks forever. I need a little more practice on my coloring and I need to start learning how to sketch backgrounds. But first, do pray for my soul since Hell Week is approaching.

So, it's been 4 years since I put this account on hiatus.
Well, you can't blame me. I got busy in college. HAHAHA

Long time no see! I'm back!
As you can see, I emptied my account because I am restarting it. And my old arts are embarrassing. I'll just post it back when I redraw them. 

So, since I've been absent on Deviantart for 4 years, the question is: Did my art skills improve?
I can't say I have. You'll be the judge. HAHAHAHA
Seriously, I really have no idea if I have improved over the past years or not since I'm used to see my arts everyday and I honestly can't tell the difference (lol what). JUDGE MEH PPL!

But anyways, I'm back and I am going to post my current artworks I have made and yeah. Let's just hope that I won't put this account on hiatus again for another 4 years HAHAHAHA.

That's all for now! AND DEVIANTART, THANKS FOR WELCOMING ME BACK! *spreading hearts everywhere*

Okay, I've been a deviant for 5 years and I still haven't posted many of my artworks here. Motivate me ppl hahaha
Perks of being a procrastinator:
- Having the wildest imagination but no motivation
- Having the motivation at the highest level but no ideas
- Simply feeling too lazy to draw
- Looking at exquisitely made arts for inspiration but no motivation
- Wanting to be productive vs wanting to sleep. The latter definitely wins

I'm so sorry for being so lazy.
Okay, I'm still alive and I'm back. Hell Week is long over and I can now finally focus on writing and sketching! 🙌🙌🙌
I should sketch some reference sheet of my OCs. Maybe later lol
