new site [02 May 2008|05:22pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

Hey there how is everyone doing? I have managed to get my website a new layout after many hours of work put into designing it. So check it out at www.Bluedragon-art.net If any of you want me to work on a commission just send me a message and I will get back to you. Also if you have just some really cool ideas you think I could really pull of let me know. I love to hear feedback on new ways to improve my art.

so I have not used this in around a year [22 Apr 2008|06:14pm]
[ mood | artistic ]

So yeah I have not posted anything on here in a long time. I am still alive and doing as best as I can for those I don't get a chance to talk to that much. I have been keeping busy with random projects and work. So much I could talk about but really no need. Yes there is a ton that has happened in a couple of years that I have been gone on here. Some if it was bad some of it was great and some just fades away. I am not sure if I will be on here much in the future but I do enjoy coming back just to say hi and get back in touch with people. so lets see....

In recent news I am still working on my art work as I am motivated. Somedays are better for motivation than others. lol. So since people probably don't know I have my own website to promote my art and maybe someday become well known. I am not really looking to become famous. I am just looking forward to sell some art to friends, family, strangers that really enjoy what I do and will display it somewhere that more people will see it and wonder who created it. I love what I do and love to share what I do with people that like my work. So without further adieu my webpage.     ------->    bluedragon-art.net

I started to work on custom faceplates for the x-box 360.

Some other things I have been working on besides my art is a 501st clone tropper costume so that I can eventually apply to get into the 501st legion.

I sill do other costumes as well. Working on finishing up my Jayne costume from Firefly and I have a few more that I am pondering working on like a X-wing pilot from Starwars. Well this is all for now. Anymore info will be in the future or could just get in contact with me.

recent news.... [18 Aug 2007|01:21am]
[ mood | calm ]

Well looking forward to the end of the year I am planning on having friends over that might want to enter a tournament that I will be hosting. It will be super smash brothers for the Gamecube and it will be $10 to enter. I will be providing drinks and snacks for all that attend I just need people to respond in who might be interested.

Also if anyone was wondering on what to get me for my birthday which is next month I am looking forward to build myself a new gaming computer. The one I am using I noticed has a few capacitors that are on its way out and there are a lot better processors out there and so forth. I don’t expect anyone to donate a ton of money so I can build a new computer, but if everyone chips in $10-20 I can start to save up for the motherboard, processor, video card, etc.... Well that’s all for this post.

Cutting
You are CUTTING.
Synopsis: Even though cutting is the most common
form of self-mutilation, that doesn't make it
any less painful. You probably try to hide it
from your friends and family, wanting the help
but not knowing how to get it. You like to be
alone and get frustrated easily by other
people.
Positive trait: Have a lot of empathy for others.
Negative trait: Hard on yourself.
Color: Crimson
Emotion: Self-hate
Animal: Horse
Quote: "I count him braver who overcomes his
desires than him who conquers his enemies; for
the hardest victory is over self."


What form of self-mutilation are you?

Oh my god he is still alive....!!!! [12 Jan 2006|12:59am]
[ mood | drunk ]

Yep that’s right folks I am still alive and here to bug the hell out of all of you. Well maybe not but yes I am still alive. I have been busy with life, mainly working a lot of hours and trying to sort things out in my head about my life. Things are going ok for the most part, I am dealing with life being shitty, but in good news to bring people I have been working on artwork and getting better. I encourage all to view my gallery at My gallery it is a start on what I hope will lead me to producing enough art to become famous. I hope that everyone else has had many happy moments since the last time I got a chance to talk to you. This year has already started out bad for me with getting hurt, etc and other random goodness but I am looking to move on and hope that the rest of the year will look up on me. If not I will make it look up, as I will fight for it. So those that care I am still around to talk to. Please leave me a message or give me a call if even to say hi and tell me you still are alive also. This is all for now.

From your favorite dragon

thoughts on my life [09 Dec 2005|02:17pm]
[ mood | depressed ]

Well it has been a long time since I been on lj. I mean work has been a big part of my life this year with both jobs giving me more hours and actually making myself known for my artwork. My coworkers that work with me think that I am crazy for working so much. It really never accrued to me why I have been working so much until now that I have a moment to reflect back on my life. The main reason why I think that I work so much now a days is to escape reality, since I lost my father at the beginning of this year my life has been all fucked up. Things have not really stabled out yet although getting better. I still have not come to terms with losing him already so I keep myself working so I don't have time to think about it, not to mention I don't get much sleep so my mind is never really clear. It is almost like being on drugs for some to escape the reality around you. I can't believe that the year is almost over although I still feel like it is January still. Almost like one long day that just continues..........

I will be adding more as time goes on and also Might stat my own website when I get free time for people that want to buy some of my art and help support an artist. ^^ The more you buy the faster I will become Known across the US so please buy something. lol Well thats all for now since I have to pack and then head off to my evil job at Dave and Busters. (It is only evil because I have to deal with bipolar coworkers sometimes... errr...)

FUCK YES!!! I managed to upgrade my friends psp from 1.52 to 2.0 and then downgrade to 1.50 so that he could use emulators on his psp and do all fun shit with it now. It only took me 12 hours to do on my day off from work.......... So yeah we where both jumping for joy when it finaly worked at around 3am. We where like fuck yes I can't believe it.

In other recent news I bought a blue DS with trama center, trace memory, advanced wars, and castlevania. The fun does not stop there also got this weekend dot hack 2&3 for the ps2, kingdom hearts for the gba, the playgear case for my psp (all customized and pimped out) tons of tea, the FF7 Vincent ACTION FIGURE, full sets of comic trading cards, and a screen protector for my DS. On top of all this I managed to put 250 towards future rent this past week. Not sure where I got the cash from and not over drawn on my bank account. I love managing my money so well that things just fall into place.

Well selling some art work has been helping with getting extra cash in my pocket. I also been picking up extra shifts here and there at my jobs although does not feel like I am working all that much more (more money for less work is the American dream). Well might have pics up of all the kewl shit I got this week along with a web site of all my art work that I have goten done so far this past few months if I can get muchitsujo to make me a small website or something. We will see how time makes life turn out.

Thank you all for reading and now I say good bye. Untill next time this is your favorite dragon signing off.

[ mood | drained ]

Man I thought I was going to pass out in the streets of Providence at 3Am seeing as I am so damn worn out from work and not getting enough sleep AND to top it all off it is fucking pouring outside. No joke as soon as I left the mall mind you it was raining before I left I was soaked in about a min. From head to toe (well I at least had a hat) I was drenched only wearing a light short sleeve t-shirt and it is around 60 outside minus whatever the wind makes it feel like. It was like getting stabbed with needles for a mile till I got in the house to get out of these soaking clothes. I was actually worried about my body temp droping to low while I was walking home not to mention I had a hard time breathing because of the cold. I whould hate to be without shelter today.

In other news work was really busy and I wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. Well that didn't happen and I was there later than I was supposed finishing up with the closing duties at Dave and Busters. Mind you I closed with another person and we normaly always get out early. Today was just insane. Well not dead yet going to get some coffee to warm me up then get some rest. peace.


Leave some love for the poor dragon....

Hi there my lj friends once again it is time for me to make a post. ^^

So lets see in recent news I found a new place to live that is on Federal Hill in Providence. It has 3 bed rooms and the living room has the bay window effect so I get a lot of light in the apartment. ^^ One of the rooms is going to become a art room which might also be a art gallery for most of my work that I will be producing. Matter of fact I just finish another painting today.

So my new art tool has Ben stolen from muchitsujo and what is it you may ask...? Her hair dryer... lol. Yeah it really helps speed up the drying time for acrylics especialy when you are using acrylic gel medium which makes the acrylics thicker. It is almost like working with oil paints with out the months drying time. I think I am going to buy the much thicker stuff though next time. This was a free trial from the art shop owner since he knows since he opened his store. Well thats it for now. Catch you all later.

life has been rough [24 Sep 2005|03:03am]
[ mood | hungry ]

The quote of the day from one of my coworkers at dave and busters. "I want to open up her bank account".... This was in response to me talking about one of the tellers from Bank of America in the mall....

In other news work has been ok for the most part just I don't like being there all to much anymore and would much rather be sleeping and eating better. This is all since I need to go in search for food before I pass out for not having anything to eat all day besides sugar...

[ mood | melancholy ]

Well in resent news I have to find a new place to live soon I guess. Not totally sure since I have not talked to my mom yet but it is very stressful at the moment trying to think about it. Not to mention all the other things this month has already brought. I am starting to not like September and it’s even my birth month.

Other that stress and bull shit moving along to the interesting stuff. Today at work I meet two people that knew me from different points in my younger life. One knew me from middle school the other from elementary school. I couldn't even recognize them which I think has to do with not thinking about my past and just trying to make my present work out. I was stunned and was like how do I know you... It was interesting to know that no matter what people still remember me even if I was not that popular till around late middle school before I went to high school. Oh well life is funny like that. I just hope something good happens for me in the next few days to cheer up my rather melancholy mood now...

Well my birthday is coming up the 18th of September. ^^ If anyone is planing on getting me a gift a gift card to EB games would make my day as I am saving up to get the new X-box 360 when it comes out and about 3 games. (Which means it is going to be very expensive...) If you prefer other things then gift cards I am also trying to get the Beserk Illistration files artbook. I also love dragons for those that don't know already.... ^^ Well off to work I go. See you all later. Leave some love.

[ mood | pissed off ]

Well here is one of the miniatures that I have repainted so far as just a sort of thing to keep me busy. I repainted what I think was supposed to be a mad hatter into Willy Wonka. It is up for sale on ebay and is one of a kind. Link to see pics are here.

Pics of figure

Let me know what you really think and maybe other things that I could make. I am currently working on turning a green lantern into Spawn with the scared up face.

Well I had a great time at Otakon. I got to hang out with my friends and see people that I havn't seen in a long time. I spent a good amount of time in Artist alley and the dealers room spending money and just having a good time. I helpped out a friend that had a table in artist alley for a good ammount of the time bust we all had a good time. The artist alley looked almost like a dealers room with the size of it and all the artist that where there.

I haveo to say there was not a lack of things to look at, at the con. I wore my Manji costume (from Blade of the Immortal manga) on Saturday which many people didn't seem to know what it was from, but I still had a good time. I did not take pics of the costume at the con but going to get some maybe later this week when I get a chance. I did have a few people take pics of me or tell me kewl costume so I at least some people knew who I was. There was this one girl who was kind of creepy that tried to tackle me in costume.... Scary shit man, then I was telling my friend Sketch about her later that day and she appeard behind us again and started talking to me. (In my mind I was like leave me alone...)

I came home with a ton more shit then I went down with.... I wonder how... lol. Yeah so I have more weapons now not to mention dvd's and toys. I love the dealers room at the con. The artist where really good at the con too which I picked up some art and need to get in contact with some people about getting art done since I didn't have enough money to buy everything I wanted.

Well today it is back to work even though I really don't want to go back. Sigh... At least it is only one job today. Hope to catch up with you all soon. Peace.

once again making an appearance on lj...? [26 Jul 2005|01:49pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

Oh my yes I am still alive although it has been forever since I posted anything on my lj. I know that I have been away from here far to long although with my kind of hectic life of never being home anymore because of work it is hard to catch up on things. Well for the most part life has been ok I guess, a lot of ups and downs. I have not actually had time to think of much since I am always running around working on something. Last night was the first time I was sort of relaxing as I was cleaning up the house and was looking over some pics. It brought back a lot of old memories that touched me. Life is always moving on it seems and this year is almost over. I have to say that I don't like this year as how it turned out so far. I was expecting this year to be the year where I got myself back on my feet and got my life heading towards my career. It didn't happen that way so far though. I still am trying to work on that though.

In other news I have been painting more these past few months. I started to use my airbrush to paint backgrounds to my paintings which I have learned a new technique. So at the moment I have three people that have commissioned me to make paintings for them. I like doing art it is a shame that I can't always stay motivated though to work on it.

Also I have started to make my new costume for otakon. So far I just have the fabric cut out and will more than likely work on sewing it together today. It should not take me long to sew together. The props on the other hand I will more than likely not get a chance to make till next con since work takes up most of my time. Ohh well what ever. Well this is going to be all for now. Catch you all later.




Ohhh P.S. I WILL NOT DIE!!!!! ^^ I love my icon.....

This is the problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, and we know nothing about each other.

I'm going to rectify it. I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me- something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.


Well things have been going well for the most part I would say. I got a chance to work on some artwork the other day, which came out ok. I didn't like it at first but many other people did. I have also been trying to find time to play games here and there at least so I know a little about some of the recent games that came out for work.

In other news I have been trying to go fishing with muchitsujo's brother. The last time that we went to the water it was too crappy. The water was choppy as heel to catch anything so we came home with nothing. It was still kind of relaxing. I am hoping to get some time off so that I can head back to Narragansett and fish again. I do hope that the next time the waters will be a little calmer.

Moving along work has been ok for the most part. It is mainly kind of boring unless I have things to do which is mostly only during the weekdays for D&B. At EB I haven't had many hours. This week I am at least working three days there.

So, what has everyone else been up too since I don't get a chance to catch up on lj post anymore? Just leave me a post here so I can read when I get the chance. Well this is all for now. There will be more to come evenly.
