Fallout - Vault Boy - Back View by The-Bluetip
Fallout - Vault Boy - Back View
Back view!

So this is my first submission in a very long time. I've barely had the will, inspiration or motivation to do anything art-related for the past couple of years now, due to my prolonged and ongoing medical recovery.

I am now super proud to be able to upload this, as it's been one of the biggest steps forward in easing (maybe not the right word, considering it wasn't a simple and quick task XD) myself back into doing art again. It feels great to complete something after SO long of doing nothing, to know that I'm finally ready to chip away at things again and to be able to share it with others.

This was a birthday gift for my partner, who is an extremely big Fallout fan. I spent about 2 and a half weeks working on this on and off and it was unveiled on May 29th!

Geez, it's been some time since my last post!

I've been taking quite the hiatus due to my medical recovery. I am *still* on medical leave from work and keeping my online interactions to an extreme minimum. After long discussions with my doctor, medical staff and upcoming discussions with my surgeon to take place, I am continuing a very prolonged leave, most likely until 2017. 

I was extremely sick a couple of weeks ago, but after a lot of antibiotics, meds, etc, I bounced back and am doing great :D My main condition has improved immensely but aside from my annual pumpkin carvings, people can tell I haven't completed a single piece of art for a long, long time.

I'm very proud to finally upload one new piece and will also eventually be going through my gallery to shift things around, delete, etc. Since I'm doing much better these days, I'm going to try and slowly start working on more arts again, preparing for the openings of my new online accounts and also preparing for a large announcement to come later on, hopefully this year, if not next!

Hope all you's have been doing swell lately and it's always nice to have a place to come back to, regardless of how long I have to take time away ^__^

Heya and thank you to anyone on my list and to those of you who stopped/stop by my page to give me a wonderful Watch! 

Apologies that I'm still not frequenting my dA account, I've taken a very prolonged period away from any online activity, including Facebook, art accounts, chatting, emails, etc. 

It's extremely difficult for me to expose this but I am still undergoing rehabilitation after major surgery for the *6th* time in only 10 months. It has been the most horrific and overwhelming experiences in my entire life, and I still have much to endure next year. For now, however, I'm finally trying to recuperate after such intense ordeals, as my surgeons were adamant that I have some well needed time to regain my strength, mentally, emotionally and especially physically. 

Due to my medical condition and the state I've been in over the past months, I've had no capacity to work on anything art-related. My main priority has been to rest and take complete time for myself, which has helped because there's no way I've had any energy, motivation, inspiration or strength to sketch or doodle, let alone work on my upcoming shop items, etc. 

One sliver of happy art-related news though is that this past week, I was luckily able to work on and complete my annual World of Warcraft pumpkin carving this year! I was very skeptical and worried that I wasn't going to be fit enough to do it, but my partner and I set everything up at the dining room table, brought in the leather office chair, etc. and with many breaks and pacing, I spent the last several days chipping away at my carving! Had I attempted this several weeks ago I definitely wouldn't have been able to do it, so I admit I'm extremely proud of this. It sort of feels like a gateway to slowly ease myself back over into my art, and it took a good heap of stamina to push myself this greatly, but I did it! 

Anyhow, I hope everyone's well and if you're interested, feel free to take a peek at my 2015 pumpkin carving as my latest gallery submission! 

Best,

~Rainedeer ^-^
Reins of the Drake - East Wind - WoW Pumpkin by The-Bluetip
Reins of the Drake - East Wind - WoW Pumpkin
Here's the final rendition for my annual 2015 World of Warcraft pumpkin carving! Again, as I mentioned in my October Journal entry, I'm extremely proud that I was able to work on and complete this carving in my current medical condition, after undergoing so much physical trauma this past year. I didn't think I'd be able to do it, but I sure proved myself wrong! 

I started work on the sketches on the 23rd of October, and started carving on the 24th, right up until the 29th. I had to pace myself quite a bit due to how harsh the work was on my body, but with frequent hour-long breaks, I was able to pull through right on time!

Since I started pumpkin carving for the first time in 2009, it has become a personal tradition to carve each year, as well as to participate in the Blizzard Entertainment pumpkin carving contest.

Below, I've stuck in a bit of a carvings breakdown over the years, as this will now be my seventh pumpkin! Wonderfully enough, all five made it up on the Honorable Mentions wall on the official Blizzard website, with my sixth pumpkin, Darius Crowley, coming in 1st Winning place in 2014!

Onyxia - 2009
Skoll - 2010
Vial of Sands - 2011
Shado-Pan Tiger - 2012
Cloud Serpent - 2013
Lord Darius Crowley - 2014

EDIT: I am so pleased to announce that my Drake of the East Wind carving has won the Blizzard Entertainment World of Warcraft pumpkin carving contest, for the 2nd year in a row! Such an honor and an accomplishment and I'm so glad everyone's enjoyed it ^__^
