While I was gone I got some birthday messages. (I'm 19 now)

I am so sorry for not replying to them soon enough. Work + full time college work = kicking my butt!

Now that I have a roof over my head and a job I'll be able to actually get on regularly. 

I am glad to be back!

Also I never really rose from the dead I sort of just always was like this I just was sleeping..in my coffin..

If anyone has been wondering where the heck I have been, it's mainly because of events and things happening partly out of my control. I had to change residencies quite a lot, starting from my Parent's house, to a friend's house, to a homeless shelter, and now I am planning to move into a townhouse soon with my friends. Overall it didn't have anything to do with paying bills on time, rather it had to do with me being in very uncomfortable situations where I felt like I needed to remove myself from.

Overall everything has been so hectic and fast but I do have some fairly good news. I am planning to major in Art!! I want to become an artist for Videogames/cardgames/films, pretty much anything to do with fantasy and imagination. I chose like two other majors before I finally settled on art, deciding happiness is better than doing something in school that I am not interested in, considering all the other majors bore me a ton..

If everything goes well I should be able to move to my new place this monday and I should be able to have my scanner up and running either on that day or the day after to upload more art.

Sacrifice and Sleep - AP Art Concentration by GraveyardBat
Sacrifice and Sleep - AP Art Concentration
My concentration deals with death rituals and the study and exploration of death rituals of others.

The spiritworld and the sacrifice that is made when signifying the death of a warrior is quite interesting. I remember one tribe of Native Americans (while doing my research) would sacrifice the horse of the deceased and paint the face of the deceased red. Horses are so important to them that it's almost like the regard the spirit of the rider and horse as one.

Making this was a challenge. I mounted both pieces on black foamboard. I painted the skull on the left on black paper and glued it on the right and the horse was done on Dura-Lar acetate paper with charcoal and paint. It was tedious when it came to measuring because I had to make sure it didn't look "unbalanced". I also had to find a way to use glue on the acetate in a fashion where it wouldn't show up through the paper because the plastic paper was see through.

The significance of the hand prints on the horse - if I remember right it means that the horse trampled a foe to the ground.
