A longer, more indefinite hiatus...

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 17, 2016, 5:46 PM
Folks, it has been a good few months since I've updated anything around here.

Unfortunately I won't be updating the gallery of pichu90 any longer. After my last pics I decided to take a break and it wasn't ONLY because of dry eyes.

I think Sparks had a moment of truth and realized he was wasting his time on something that wasn't paying off and became tired of the same old stuff. He's grown
to accept that fact, even though he improved tremendously over the near-ten year span. Doubly so, was dealing with a lot of the headaches
from thieves, spammers and art beggars. Commissions? They were good for a while, until it became a guessing game of whether Sparks could trust
the other party to pay him and not change things last moment. However, the final nail in the coffin was the question of "why?", as in why is Sparks
still feeling like he's stuck in the same old rut and no longer enjoying his work?

Luckily Sparks also has a full-time career that is truly working for him: That of a software engineer 'geek'.

Those months in hiatus proved to help him get better at what he truly is born to be good at. Its no surprise that software geeks rarely make good artists/designers.

Nonetheless, Sparks isn't done with art for good. Once dust settles with some key details of real life work, Sparks will be 'born' again with sharing the kind of stuff
he truly likes working on such as Android/IOS mobile apps, maaaaaaaaaybe a Flash game but Adobe Flash just seems to be falling ever so, but it can still happen.
(I do have a WIP of a Sparks Adventure game still)

Stay tuned for any updates, but mostly in journal form.  When I'm ready, I will post a new username and a list of sites you can find 'Sparks' at.

As they say, all good things must come to an end :)

Enjoying my hiatus

Honestly, really it's just been better that I've stopped drawing for a few months now. Can't say when I'll be back since I've lost the motivation for a long time. Maybe I need to rethink my art goals and/or choose a different username altogether. Probably not what my watchers want to hear but at least I'm doing well on a personal level ^^

My eyes are a less dry now but I'm still taking a longer break from posting. I will be sketching on paper however don't count on them being posted :\

More or less back!

Thanks to those remembering (and gifting me) on my birthday (on the 8th)! I certainly enjoyed it.

I've been gone longer since I've had extreme dry eye lately and my optometrist recommended me to take restasis until my eyes are producing tears normally.

That and having a life of course. I am refreshed but art will come at a slower pace from now on since I'm balancing my life better between online and offline interests. Oh and there's that thing called a job~

My job situation has been tenuous at best because of management and announcement of an acquisition which has already caused anxiety for my fellow coworkers. In fact one of my best friends there has accepted a job offer elsewhere :(. Everything on my end seems stable but I too question staying at my current job for the same reason. I'm staying on top of my skills as a software dev so my drawing skills will likely be getting 'worse' due to non-practice. I've decided not take drawing serious anymore but it doesn't mean I will stop completely 'yet'. With Sparks turning 10 lets hope his next 10 are better :)

Coming up on Ten

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 22, 2016, 5:49 PM
Just a quick update since that last journal wasn't so positive.

Sparks' birthday will be coming up  soon,  his tenth! =o

I haven't decided how to have the little rascal celebrate his birthday as he's been put aside lately in favor of different characters. I wanted to do a mini flash animation but I don't think it will be finished in time.

Overall,I'm trying to map out the rest of the year since my life is revolving less around drawing and more on my proffession.

Quick question to those who care: What should be Sparks' next flash animation/video?

I know you'll probably never get this, considering the fact you quit devianting for a while and I have no clue when you're coming back, but I have one question, and here it is: Sparks seems like a very high level Pichu, knowing Iron Tail and all, but I got to chewing on this, will Sparks evolve into a Pikachu? Or is he like Ash's Pikachu and refuses to evolve?
Anyway, I was just curious and I hope you will answer.
