Went a bit crazy with the shadow but oh well! I had some free time and some strength to muscle out another drawing, this time of my villager, Alfonso from Animal Crossing <:
I did it. I graduated university with an award for student excellence and a degree with first class honours, this chapter of my life is now closed. I am so happy that I came so far in the last two years, from joining the course in the second year having no idea who or what anything was, terrible depression and nearly being kicked off the course for doing so bad. I got kicked out of my house, I broke both of my hands, and here I am now: top marks, a top award and some of the best friends I have ever had the sorrow of saying goodbye to. I know we have Facebook and Skype but it won’t be the same. I will miss all of you and wish you the best of luck with whatever road you go down. You gave me some of the best memories of my life so far - probably some of the best I’ll ever have. You made me feel like I fitted in somewhere, that I finally had somewhere I felt I could make a difference. I will sound incredibly cheesey and mushy for saying this but I feel it’s true, that that means more to me than my degree and award combined. Thank you for everything and maybe I’ll see you guys again in some studio in the near future.
My graduation ceremony is in less than an hour! I am so happy to finally be graduating, it’s finally happening! :D
I am 23 today!
Thanks to a pile of painkillers I actually felt like I had enough strength to hold a pencil and draw something. Here’s a little devil dude from Ni No Kuni, that I’ve been leveling up <:
That’s it. I am done. I wash my hands of this game.
