Hello, everyone! How has you been lately?
How, have been a while since my last journal update, no? Since September...but what could I do? Nothing really big happened in art-talking to be shared, so...
And guess that! Today makes exactly one year and one day since my last year review! A lot of things happened that I'll split in topics, so take you seat (or just read the topics that might interest you) and get some snake!
Ah, unfortunately, this time I didn't get any meme to complete the journal. -Arts
Thanks to a lot of thing, I didn't make the progress I wished for this year. If you look on my gallery, you'll see that I only submitted 15 arts, and some of them didn't have the half of inspiration and dedication from the past years... But I still like them, the good news is there's still, at least, 3 or 4 arts to be submitted before the suppose "world's end", being two of them a collab with great artists and friends!
Also I wished to be more active in PKMN-Crossing group, but some great things happened, like my OC got his first pet and confess his true feeling to his special one, in an amazing RP!
But yeah, thanks to a lot of things I couldn't focus myself in drawings, but still doing. Hope next year I got more inspiration to do new stuffs/finished some old ones...-Studies
The begin of year was as awful as the last one, but less exhaustive. I figure out to combine my two schools and still being in both without red grades. In the meddle of year the public University got on a strike of 6 months!
So I can say that I really enjoyed that time have to go to only one.
The best part was about now: I just scored 10\10 in all my disciplines in the Translation's school! Isn't that great?!
I also finished my Spanish course. I'm not as fluent as a Spanish or a Chilean, but I can understand, make a few sentences and even translate a bit! All I need is to practice as much as I can!
Oh, the Japanese goes well, tried to study, at least, 15 minutes everyday and the result came: I receive a few awards today for my presence e for my redaction composing!-Games
Well, some of you might know, but I traveled to Miami/New York in July! And, aside the visit of many places, I purchase a lot of things, games mostly!
When I returned I got, like, over 10 games related items, from complete games until DLC's and downloable games! I'm going going to focus in all the games I got and played, but I have to pointed out a specific game series that I started to play this year and I'm almost finished to play all the games: the Metal Gear series.
I never knew someone who talked bad about the series and since I decided to purchase the HD collection for PS3, I decided to play all the games. Until now, the only game I haven't played yet is Peace Walker and I'll soon enough!
And my opinion? The series deserves all the fans and positive reviews. Dang, all the conspiracy, characters and game design is awesome! I really got nuts with the history and, after playing Metal Gear Solid 4 last week I realized why it's considered the best PS3 game of all, even 4 years later...
And all the cinematic feeling allows the game to have a live-action movie, and they will do it! I only wished to Snake's eternal voice actor, David Hayter, plays his role, even just the voice...
Next year I intend to purchase the Z.O.E.'s HD games and I'll start to play the Mass Effect games soon enough, for now, still, like 3 great games to play yet.
Oh, yeah! I've been doing some guides in Portuguese for those who play .hack//Versus, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle and Okami HD (which is selected to be one of the best guide of the year in the myPST portal soon enough, I really dedicate myself to write not just tips and the walktrough, but to explain all the game's elements, like the history and the Shintoism references. -In a overall
Well, this year has a lot of ups and downs. I traveled to New York and São Paulo, cities that I never imagined to visit, at same time I got a bit depressed thanks to myself. I when to a Video games Live for the first time and love it, at same time I didn't draw as much as I wished, I managed to do two study courses, at same time I've been feeling more tired everyday...
Oh, I almost forgot: I still active in the Brazilian Zelda's website where I'm a moderator, but also a staff member. I've working on some translation like the GT's Zelda Timeline, Skyward sword's manga AND the game itself! It's getting epic, trust me.
It wasn't the year I was plained, in all the senses. In some point unexpected things happened, and things got worse in some points... The year has passed and, in a overall, I've learned a lot of thing, as for myself and to the people around me, as about myself...If the world doesn't end next week, I wish to you all a happy holidays and may 2013 be a great year to you all!!
