Hey there fellow deviants!! It's been a while since I've made a journal entry... or have made any kind of attempt at reaching out to the dA community... I'm about to get myself back into school and I've been extremly hesitant about it. My plan is to go back to my community college to take some classes that will help me transfer over to Savannah College of Art and Design (the Savannah, Georgia campus) to get my BFA in Illustration.

I can be an over-thinker and the 2 main things that have me hesitating are MONEY (Art schools are expensive and I HATE debt so I'd like to avoid it if at all possible...) and the probability of me having a job afterwards. 

All across this website we have professionals, students like myself and art school graduates and I was hoping some of you could tell me about your thoughts or personal experiences with things like art school. 

What was it like for you?
Were you in debt because of art school?
What was the greatest benefit of art school for you?
What are you doing now?

Did you even go to an art school?
Do you plan on going?
How are you preparing yourself?

Obviously the decision is mine alone to make and no comment will absolutely make or break my decision because I believe that what you get out of your actions is what you put into it. But your thoughts will help give me different perspectives on what to expect and hopefully guide me towards making better decisions whether that has me going to school or not...

One of the sketches that I'm going to include in a new sketch dump. I tried a whole new process while drawing this. It definitely took a while to get used to but I love the results! I want to make practice concept art a lot more and I want to get serious with my OCs... story and and everything.

I haven't drawn a Sonic picture in a very long time!! So this was a fun thing to make while being in the middle of other exercises and projects.

Hey there everyone!!
So check this out... I'm a pretty chill guy... I love video games... art (duh)... pizza...and Jesus... I'm on DeviantART for 3 reasons:
1: To post drawings of the things I love
2: To support other artists
and 3: To impact people through my art ministry and to have a fun time doing it :)

I've been on this planet for 20 year now, and throughout my short lifetime God has impacted me and placed many things on my heart to share with my peers through my art. Now, I can finally share those messages with the rest of the world! I hope to impact others with these messages and I pray that through the help of all arts, talents and movement of the Holy Spirit to reflect my creator with my creativity :) Enjoy!
