Hey loyal viewers and newcomers,

As always, thank you for your wonderful and persistent support. I keep a close eye on pageview, comment, and favorite statistics to gauge how well you guys are enjoying my new content. I keep that close to heart.

It was a rough semester for me at college this spring, as I withdrew from two of my classes, failed one, and scored an 'A' grade in the other. I was disappointed by my performance, and wasn't helped by the coldest winter I've ever experienced in my lifetime. It was the coldest in 30 years, in fact.

I had trouble keeping up, and got behind very early in the semester. The commute to campus only got worse like the weather and things quickly slid from my grasp. In the meantime, the job got more stressful and I quickly wanted to quit or cut hours... I ended up staying.

In the meantime, I've simply focused on the necessities, and making new content, of course. I didn't hesitate or spend more time getting rusty after a rough February, and now I've settled into a nice groove. I am hoping to break into some new mediums... Especially some that I have been dreading, like colored pencils and watercolors, with some graphite and charcoal mixed in for good measure.

For the next couple of projects, I am hoping to break out of my mold and try some other popular anthro artists styles on for a change. I have been looking at the styles of :iconsiosin: and :iconwolfskulljack: as well as :iconatan: and will try to imitate their approach to making them the way they do in an effort to add a little spice to my werewolf art.

For now, I want to step away from furry art. It's not that I don't want to draw it... but I've gotten a bit disenchanted with the genre, mostly because of the overwhelming amount of bad art and bad stigma that seems to lurk in it.

Other than that, I've stayed busy with my full-time job and if you've been keeping an eye on my twitter feed (at ThisIsDSauve), you would probably know.

Thanks again guys, and party on.

Much love,

Donnie

[UPDATE] I am now full-time at my job. This implies that there may be less time available for me to do art. I am also going on a 1-year hiatus from college to save up for a car, and hopefully gain some maturity. It was a difficult decision that had to be made. Unfortunately the performance I had at college the past two semesters was well below the college's standards and I would have faced Academic Warnings again. In an effort to curb a further drop-off it had to be done.

I am a third year (junior) college student and graphic design major on hiatus [presumably for one year]. I work a grindy full-time job in retail to pay the bills and make nice arts on the side. I previously attended SCSU. I work with photography, traditional art, and digital art, specializing in anthro art. I seek to create interesting art in all different genres. I keep my art as free as possible because I like giving back to the dA community. My goal is to become an accomplished and successful artist regardless of my final career trajectory. I try to make art that expresses how I feel about life and what I believe in. I am working hard to be the best I can be.
