I love doing art since I was a little kid. When I went to school, I majored in becoming a multimedia specialist. At the time I could choose to become a graphic designer, programmer or animator. I chose to become a graphic designer, since that was the closest thing to doing art. The funny thing is that after I finished that major, I started working as a programmer. That was 10 years ago and I'm still a programmer XD But with graphic design skills. Because i started working full time when I was 20, I barely got to focus on my ultimate hobby: making art. Through the age of 5 to 18 I was really motivated to draw daily. The full time job really drained my energy and I lost motivation and energy to make art. I tried to upload art a few times, but it never really ended up as I wanted anymore. The job I had back then was very stressfull. I knew I had to leave as soon as I could. Additionally I had a girlfriend who didn't make it any easier for me either.
5 years later i found the girl of my dreams and married her a year after we hooked up. I found a new job that isn't very stressfull but gave me opportunity to do the things I want in my free time. Now 10 years later the stress from my previous life has almost entirely faded away and I'm starting to get my energy and motivation back to start making great art! My wife supports and motivates me to do that too. This year on January 31st I even became a proud dad of our baby girl Symphony Ultimecia. Even as a parent, I have the energy and motivation to make new art! Everything around me just inspires me again like it used to! I'm also very greatfull to my wife for supporting me in every step of the way.
Even after 10 years of not using my skills to it's fullest, It's not too late to start making art again. As long as you have the energy and motivation, it's never too late to do anything.
