So, this is one of the main reasons I've been so very busy lately... hopefully I will have a little more time in the coming months. I've been working on post launch content for quite a while (over a year), but since the game went live today, hopefully I will calm down at least a little. 
Also, GO BUY THE GAME AND START PLAYING!

I'm filling this out because I didn't want that other journal there anymore... that's basically it really.
Quick updates:
#1: The Elder Scrolls Online went live on Sunday (soft release) and had its first paying customers playing the game!!! On Friday is the full release and the flood gates will be open! This is where 95% of my time has been for the last several years, and I hope to post some work from it soon.
#2: I'm still pretty damn sick... so... there's that. Currently wearing a heart monitor, and I may need another heart surgery. BLEH
#3: I may open up commissions and such again, but not for animation work... whoa I know craziness! Just smaller jobs (animation takes too much time), like small FX and logo work. 

That is all, go about your day now.

Selling My Canon EF 75-300mm Lens

I'm selling this lens because I'm upgrading to a L series lens. This lens has been AWESOME to me and is responsible for most of my more popular shots here on dA. I'm letting you all know before I put it up on ebay because I figured I'd give my friends a try first :) I'm willing to accept trades too :) Just give me an offer if you want it.

Maryland Resident

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 2, 2008, 2:34 PM



Move On With It, Or Get Out Of The Way!

Well, after almost 9 months of driving from New Jersey, to my new job in Maryland, I've finally moved to Maryland!!! I used to drive about 4.5 hours a day, now I'm down to about 1!!! I'm so excited to have all this free time now! Of course I haven't had a chance to enjoy it, since I'm unpacking and everything... but I'm excited to enjoy it once I actually have it :) So, anyone from the Baltimore, MD area? I'm just East of Baltimore, and JUST south of Bel-Air.... It's a great area. I'm used to more farm land, but I'll get used to it I suppose. Well, I haven't had the internet at 'home' for a week, so I'm still catching up on messages and deviations... Hopefully I'll have time to upload some stuff too.. BLEH!

Want a Feature? Last Chance!

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 16, 2008, 8:21 AM



Who Wants a Feature?

**EDIT: Last Chance to Get Featured on this Journal!
Okay, I've done these before and I figured I would go for it again. No time regulations, no promises of when I will post the journal, and no race to the finish line! Basically, comment here if you want a feature. I'm not going to say I'm featuring 'x' amount of people; that will be determined when I go through all the posts and how much time I have at the time of the journal post. I'm also not going to say "you have until 'this' date." I'm randomly doing this and it's completely random. ALTHOUGH, it will be first come first serve: faster you comment in here, the better the chances are that I'll feature you....
NOW GET COMMENTING!

Updates

Well, I just went to the zoo this past weekend. I got some 'okay' shots... I uploaded a few of them. I'll upload some more later on. I had a great time!
As for my health, I'm still in the same state, and waiting for some test results.
And I sold my motorcycle, so be prepared to see some shots of my new bike soon :)

2006 CBR1000RR

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 22, 2008, 8:22 AM



This isn't ebay?

Crap, I just realized this isn't ebay... damn it! Hahaha, nah... I just wanted to tell you fine folks here on dA that I have decided to sell my 2006 Honda CBR 1000RR. You can vist this cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda-… to view everything about it. So, if anyone here wants it, I'll give you (my bestest online friends) a crack at it before the auction ends. FYI: I'm aiming to get $8000 for it, but I'm accepting a best offer.
Health and Shit

I wanted to also let you guys know that my heart tests are coming up this Friday and I'll let you all know how that works out. AND... I know I haven't been uploading recently, and that isn't because I don't love you... but I'm working my arse off right now and I simply haven't had the time :( I PROMISE that I'll get something to all you guys and gals soon! Oh and that reminds me, for what ever reason, I just noticed that UK chicks tend to like my art more than anyone else... so with that "hello ladies."

Allergies and Heart Health

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 10, 2008, 12:40 PM



More Health Shit

So, I found out I have more heart problems then originally thought and I'm going to be going through more tests. Coming up is a 2D echo and a doppler on my left leg. Apparently, my palse in my left leg is much weaker than my right, and that is probably the cause of some pain I've been having. I was also put on 3 more medications and I'm up to quite a bit of meds per day. My breakfast now consists of 5 pills, my lunch is 3 pills, and dinner has 2 pills! They are also talking about putting me on that one medication I talked about before, which has horrible side effects. Ah well, I'm not dead yet, so this must be making me stronger right?
As for the allergies, I just found out I have food allergies and I need to stay away from some things. Here is a short list of what is on my list of things to eliminate from my diet.
Beer (OMG, someone please kill me NOW)
Wine
All liquor
All cheese (except american)
All bread (except White and Whole Wheat)
All canned food
No dried fruit (this includes raisens)
Only FRESH meat, meaning I have to go to a butcher
No milk older than 3 days old
No deli meats
Only fresh tomato (meaning no pasta sause unless made from scratch, and no tomato paste)
No salad dressing
No Ketchup
Cider
Fruit Skins
MSG
Pretzels
Processed Sugar
Soft Drinks and mixed drinks
Chocolate
Corn
Potatoes
High-Fructose Corn Syrup
And many more things I need to add to this list...

If anyone has a Yeast Allergy, and has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know. Or perhaps just great Yeast Free Cookbooks, I'd love you forever for the recommendations! Thanks guys!

Small Health and Related Update

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 8, 2008, 11:17 AM



Health and Other Stuff

Wow, I just realized I haven't uploaded anything in a month! I promise I'll upload some stuff SOON. I've just been mega busy...
Well, tomorrow I find out a lot of stuff about my health. I've been having severe chest pains, and the doctor said we have some solutions, and I won't like any of them... time to see what they are. I also go to my allergist tomorrow and find out all of the fun stuff I'm allergic to. Apparently I'm allergice to some foods, and they may be why I've been getting sick, ever since I was a little kid... we'll see. I'll update you all on that later...
Have a great day!

Don't Like dA? F--- You

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 18, 2008, 1:23 PM



My dA Story

I've heard soooooo much complaining about deviantart lately and well, I'm pretty sick of it. If you don't like it, leave... Don't complain for 6 months straight and make journals that don't do anything more annoy the rest of us.. and with that, I'd like to tell you all my story and why I love deviantart.
Doubt you'll have time to read this, and absolutely no time to respond, but I like telling this story anyways. ;) So, I used to be a computer engineer, and I absolutely hated it. I got into computers because I loved 3D art, everything about it... But, where I live (out in the middle of no where, covered in woods) it is hard to even find someone that knows how to work one properly. So, the thought of actually working in the 3D world was left to the 'Gods' of art and computers, nothing I thought I could ever have a chance in. But, one day I came across dA and I saw how many people were brand new to it, and they were stuggling along. That helped me to deside to just start playing around with some 3D programs. Once I was making some pretty neat pictures (just plan 3D cube rooms, everyone does them in the beginning), I decided to post it up on dA. Right away I was getting feedback, not always positive, but usually friendly. But WOW, people actually liked my stuff... But, I think I can get better... so I toyed around with bigger better programs, and in turn I got better. All along the way getting the feedback on my stuff that helped me strive to be better. A few years later, and here I am, I changed careers and I'm now a professional 3D animator, working for a well respected and skilled gaming studio... I really do owe a lot of that to Deviantart and the friends I made here.

Wacom Intuos 3 (6'x8')

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 12, 2008, 11:55 AM



Wacom For Sale

Hey guys, I'm selling my BARELY used Wacom Intuos 3 (6x8). I mean you can't even tell it was ever used; it is in MINT condition. I'm upgrading to a Cintiq 20WSX and no longer have a use for the Intuos3. So, I'm wondering if any of my fellow friends and watchers here at dA would like the oppertunity to purchase it from me before I put it up on eBay. Please respond here or note me if you are interested. If you are, we will then talk about price... or just put an offer in right off the bat.

Screenshot Winners

Journal Entry: Thu May 29, 2008, 10:54 AM



What I'm Doing About the Winners

Well, I was originally going to give the winner a free print from my gallery, and a 1 month feature in my journal, but since it seems there were two people that got the screenshot (Don't ask me how), I'm lowering the prize to just the feature... Sorry if this seems unfair, but it's unfair to me too! The features can be found below, in "Monthy Feature"

Closer to Death

Journal Entry: Wed May 21, 2008, 7:44 AM



One Day Closer To Death

Well, I'm one year closer to death today... Yup, it's my birthday! I'm now 27 years old... officially in my late 20's. I also just realized that I recently passed my 4 year mark here at DeviantArt! That's amazing to me; especially because that means that, that is when I first started to play around with art. And here I am, a working professional animator.
I woke up this morning and my wife made sure I had a great start to my day. She said she has a gift for me later today, and we're going out to eat tonight (dunno where). I also just found out that one of my best buddies, right here on dA, has been published!!! You've seen me feature him in my journals before, AndyBuck :iconandybuck:. Well he has been featured in "Amazing Pencil Portraits". You can find the book here: www.blurb.com/user/store/platt… and there are two versions of the book.
So, so far my day is going pretty damn great. If you want to make it even better and feel obligated to get me something on my birthday, I would love a print from your gallery, or even something from my wishlist. That is only if you are a billionare or something, I don't want anyone going out of their way to buy some stranger a birthday gift, but I wouldn't turn it away either ;)
Anyways, have a great day everyone! I think that because it is my birthday, I'm going to do a journal feature thingy... stay tuned for more!

Skillz, The Zoo, and Broken Shit

Journal Entry: Mon May 19, 2008, 1:37 PM



I Can't Draw

I decided to just pick up a pencil and try drawing some stuff today... I came to realize that I cannot draw. I mean I can't even draw good stick figures. I don't get it, I was a pretty good drawer about 15 years ago, at least for my age I was pretty good. Now I cannot even draw as good as I did back then. I seriously can't draw stick figures well. I'd love to take some drawing classes, but I'm scared that I'll be wasting my (and my teacher's) time. Not to mention the waste of money. A lot of people tell me that it is a skill like any other skill' it's a learned skill, you have to learn how, then practice. I believe that for the most part, but I truly suck, I mean bad. What do you guys think I should do?  Give up, because it's not a skill I need anyway... or wait till I have the time and take a class or two, and learn it? I'm also planning on taking some photography classes, and right now that is a higher priority...

The Philly Zoo

I went to the Philly Zoo yesterday, I had an absolute blast taking photos! It poured its ass off for 3/4 of the day, but I still really enjoyed it. I hope to have time and a computer (read below) to look at these photos and upload them to dA. Keep your eyes peeled!

Broken Shit

Well, my 3+ year old PC finally seems to be dying. Windows starts up pretty good, but then I get an error about my video cards losing power and the whole PC starts to slow down. I cannot even start a program or get into any of my folders. I tried starting in 'Safe Mode' but I get pretty much the same thing. So, I'm going to try and recover everything I can from it, then try to rebuild it... if that doesn't work, I'm going to go ahead and buy a new PC. Since I'm working now, and not doing a crap load of stuff at home, I'm probably just going to get a Laptop.
