(update bc it's been awhile...)
4 weeks of freshman year left! I've never missed summer so much :iconcryforeverplz: 

Next week is going to suck, because my program application deadline is Friday. You'd think being an art major would have less stress than other majors, but it's still pretty bad. ;.; Part of college craziness is because you're own your own and have to do everything. After next week though, I'm going to Disneyland with the rest of the fam, so at least some of the stress will be gone (and I won't have to wake up at 2:30 every morning to go to work! <3)

Once summer comes, aside from the hopefully 2 or so jobs I get, I plan to be a lot more active on my dA and FF account. :) I've bought quite a few adopts lately and want to flesh them and their stories out, as well as continue with writing (I might be posting some writing in the near future; I'm in a creative writing class right now and we get a lot of assignments). 

But til then...... :iconschoolplz:


RyoYamaki's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
I'm 18 and live in the USA. I have recently graduated high school and will be attending college in the fall likely majoring in graphic design with a minor in marketing. Drawing has always been a hobby of mine, but I've never really had the time to draw consistently enough that I really improve, so this dA profile will likely not be updated regularly haha. Not for a while anyway. I also feel like I need to still find my personal style (as opposed to just trying to draw my version of another artist's style that I like).

Fav Movie: Avengers (totally), Cap. America, Hachi, Rise of the Guardians

:iconcconfusedplz: You watched me back?? asdfgjh Thanks! Your art is lovely! :iconarigatouplz: I'll try not to disappoint.
Life is hectic in college between school and my job, but I'm really devoting effort to improve (though I'm been bad at posting stuff on dA of it), especially since I want to apply to my program in March. 
Thanks for the support ^^

Aw I understand how that is. College is good for practice and learning new things though, so it's a good time in life to focus on improvement. ^^ I just think it's neat that you want to find your own artistic style. There are so many artists on here who try to do the same generic anime look (I'm a bit guilty of that myself tho'...) I like it when I come across someone who isn't afraid to focus and improve on how they draw naturally. Nothing wrong with being inspired by others, of course, but it's good to find a middle ground between following your inspirations and pursuing your own natural skill.
Anyway, good luck!

Your art still has its own style though, especially with how you use color. :) And thanks, I'll need it. ^^
