About Me!



Hi there! Welcome fellow deviant! My name is "Kitax" or you can call me "Roxas" if you'd like. I am currently a freelance artist in the lovely medias of traditional and newly digital art. I have an Associates Degree in Art and currently aiming for my Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Art, as well as Minoring in Teaching (on a College Professor level). I enjoy working in the Arts either professionally or in my spare time. I also have other hobbies which consist of: cosplaying and sewing. If you have any questions or want to chat, feel free to contact me either on here, my tumblr, or Skype. Thank you! -Kitax

Fall Break is Here!

Wed Oct 22, 2014, 8:03 PM

Officially on Fall Break!


News


            I got so excited that I wanted to immediately update that I'm officially on Fall Break until Sunday evening. :3 This doesn't mean that it's totally a holiday for me due to projects BUT I can be surrounded by family, pets, and do some personal arts too. ^^

           What's my schedule like for the next few days? Here's a preview:

           *Thursday-- Leave MSU @ 8AM , Arrive home @ 11AM , Haircut @ 1PM, ....free afterwards.
           *Friday-- Work on Project, MA works, and costume works.
           *Saturday-- Work on project, MA works, and costume works. (Go out and take photos too) ; Possibly heading back to MSU late that evening.
           *Sunday-- Meet up for M.A.I. Con on campus around 8AM. Enjoy day outing in Oxford at con. :3 Head back around 4-5PM.
           
           So that's my tentative schedule. I will probably be on a little bit to roleplay..but most likely late in the evening. >w<;

           What's happening next week? Here we go:
 
           *Monday --  Drawing III Project 3 critique/ due @ 6:30 PM
            * Tuesday -- Intro to Computing Project 3 critique/due @ 11 AM
           *Wednesday-- Go to guest printmaking workshop @ 12-3PM. Attend artist talk and reception @ 4-6PM. Get dressed in costume and head over to Anime Club Halloween Party @ 7PM. (( AKA no Drawing III class xD )
           *Thursday-Sunday -- TBA ( dunno yet. xD )

           So that's what I have for this update. How is everyone? Anyone on break this week? If so, have safe travels. :3 Will be working on MA assignments since they are tentatively due around November. >w< Should be popping into MA chat too at some point. So sorry in advance for not peeking into chats and activeness...>w<;

MSU Update

            This week has been tough. With only 3 days into the week before Fall Break, I've somewhat reached a melting point. The Drawing III class that I'm in is stressful. It's hard to share ideas with a teacher that is hard to appease. I dunno how many times I've shared so many ideas and end up hating my project in the end because of the negative feedbacks. What's the point in art if you can't go with the ideas in an interesting, unique way? Should a narrative be easily read? Would it be better to let the audience imagine what the piece is than having a clear narrative? I just dunno how else to improve my piece. I'm not an over detailed person. I like the 'less is more' idea. I'm not complicated either. Sometimes it's hard for me to work with perspective due to my previous background and how I learn. *sighs*
            I'm not giving up though. I'm going through with my original idea since it's too late right now to worry about. This thing is due Monday when I get back from Fall Break and I'm going to make it the way I want it to be rather than the teacher's.
            So yeah, that's my small rant of the day. >w<
            Other than that, I finished my Photoshop project for Intro to Computing Arts. Going to be working on Drawing III project all Fall Break. Going to attempt to finish the padding on my costume and do the dummy tonight..so that I can work with the pattern, fabric, and sew before Wednesday. The feet will be a pair I've originally worn due to time constraints. I'm thinking of using the vest I made last year and adding some leather details for my creature for Halloween. Hopefully will post WIP soon.
            Anyone else on Fall Break this week? OwO;
            Going to M.A.I. Con in Oxford Sunday for those interested in meeting up. Hopefully everything will run smoothly. >w<;
            I think that's it.

            Leaving you guys with some advice:

            -Be patient.
            -Be kind, loving, and hard working.
            -Love what you do.
            -Be positive and optimistic.
            -There's no such thing as the impossible.
            -Keep head up, move on with your life.
            -Take risks.
          

            Love you guys! -Kitax

MSU update

News


            The weekend has finally arrived. I spent Friday in Jackson to see my Dad and then surprised my Mom and her friend too, since I knew my Mom was having Chemo that day. It was very short since my Mom started not feeling well when we went out to eat and later my sis and I found out that we weren't feeling well either. I had something similar to this last Spring and a few other times when I was young. I dunno what it really is either...I felt like I was short of breath, my sinuses were going crazy, my stomach was upset, and I felt pretty warm...it's not a good feeling at all.
            I'm doing much better this morning after going to bed early last night. I do believe it was something in the air but not sure of what. *shrugs*
            Other than that, classes are going good. I managed to get some more pictures, but still lacking a cat and fish photo...may try to contact some friends later for locations. >w<; Umm...I still have a lot more drafting to do for Drawing III before I can transfer to my 22 x 30 paper. ^^;

            I will have something up for MA hopefully during Fall break or as soon as I get back from Fall Break. I start Fall Break this coming Thursday to Sunday, though Sunday I'll probably be at M.A.I. Con in Oxford. :3 It's a small convention that is going on Saturday and Sunday, but I feel that it would be best to go Sunday when it's closer to Starkville and it's a small con..so I know it's not worth going both days. ^^;

            Other than that...uh...I want to work on a Halloween costume..but not sure on time. *sighs* I'm aiming on finishing some Faun pants since I originally did foam padding on my leggings last year and it seems easier to do with this time constraint. >w<;

            I think that's it. I'll try to be on Skype today and tomorrow, though I will be slow at responding due to my homework. >w>;
