It sure has been a while!

I first want to apologize for my inactivity- I recently moved out of my family's house and almost all the way across the continent...right before doing this, my laptop decided to stop working and had to be completely wiped to be saved. ;;_;;  Shortly after moving out here, my intuos 4 tablet decided it didn't want to work properly and died shortly after I finished drawing Pixiv Fantasia T: Wink by PikoPing.  I have since gotten a temporary tablet to use from a friend and hope to have time to post art more again!  I have started an instagram account- energeticpeppermint- and I am doing the 365 drawing challenge on there if you want to look me up. 

In other news, I have been chosen to be an artist for an upcoming game.  More on that as it makes progress.  Eventually there will be a Patreon page for it to gather support!  I'm really excited for this opportunity, and hopefully I will get helpful feedback from everyone. :]
I followed my Sensei out here (Shotokan Karate), and I have happily been able to keep up with training!  I now train 5 days a week, about 2 hours a night.  Recently obtained my 1kyu rank (highest brown belt level), and I am now working hard towards my Shodan! (1st black belt level).  In our style you usually can't test for your Shodan for a year after receiving 1kyu rank, but Sensei is letting me test in December (6 months since last exam, assuming Sensei believes I am ready).  I am really trying to push it to be able to pass...There are no 'half-steps' toward black belt, it's all or nothing.  But I am so grateful that I am being pushed like this and I am super excited to see where it goes! Wish me luck!

I may be reopening commissions soon!  I have a 3 day weekend, and definitely need this time to regroup.  Things will be crazy at work for a while, but once that settles down I should be able to nail down a solid work schedule and have time to open commissions.

Pixiv Fantasia T: Wink by PikoPing
Pixiv Fantasia T: Wink
Going to try really hard to participate this year!  I really like this design...I don't show much of my character designs, but it is my favorite thing to do. 

Wink is an adventurous mage who specializes in using lightning.  He travels to lots of different places studying culture and language while perfecting his techniques.

I'm excited to draw him more~ :] 
Art/Character belongs to me!
