Okay... I just found out the following things

I have senioritis: I am still taking courses in college long after I got my degree so there is less pressure and less incentive to overachieve.

I have wanderlust: I have had this for several years, the desire to travel to far away places and broaden my horizons... and everyday I reflect on how I'm stuck in this place. When people and tourists tell you that your home is a "paradise" you just want to make sure right? I really need to buy a car soon.

I am experiencing a quarter-life crisis: Life kinda feels like it's at a standstill. My transition into adulthood is taking a lot longer than I thought it would. A lot of things I've done in the last year (drivers license, getting a job) I should have done when I was 16. I'm still single, I have ZERO friends, I still live at home with "the bosses", I know it's a phase but it's a suckish phase.

Not that anyone cares.

Inktober- Portraiture practice 1 by Rayaroja
Inktober- Portraiture practice 1
I had never heard of inktober until about 3 days ago...

Anyway, I had been drawing this image in my sketchbooks and the margins of my notebooks for several weeks and I decided to just up and do an ink version. I like to think this is what my OC Galatea would see in the Mirror of Erised.

A Doll Among Mannequins by Rayaroja
A Doll Among Mannequins
After learning the circumstances of her creation, Galatea has developed a healthy fear of dolls and mannequins. She believes if her creator/boyfriend was like any other man she would have been nothing more than an anatomically correct doll.

Still... I will leave it open to interpretation.

Just Another Friday Night by Rayaroja
Just Another Friday Night
It has been a while since I've drawn the Phantom of the Art Gallery in ink and fighting monsters.
This would have been concept art for a story I submitted for my Classical Animation class... but it was rejected in favor of more simple gag stories. Go Figure

I've upgraded my phone and now I'm on instagram @blueroseartwork

Thank god summer is over, now I can marvel at the shapes of my breath, rock my peacoat, design haunted houses, and my b-day isn't that far away.

This year I'm helping design a haunted house at my job, I'm going to incorporate urban legends and even creepypasta themes into the design, I've also been approved to building a life-size Slenderman puppet that can be animated by puppeteers and scare the kids with! I'll be going as Jack Skellington as well.

But what sucks is that my family is doing couples costumes for my halloween party and I'm going as Jack without a Sally... or Zero.

In my animation class I've been made a team leader so I get to be in charge of the story we are working on. However... we got the story nobody wanted and I'm the only one who has the most experience in the trade and the one who has taken the class before... and it doesn't help that we are all incredibly quiet and the classroom has the worst acoustics I've ever heard making the enthusiastic teams even louder! I'm up to the challenge, I just hope my team is.
