School has officially ended!! It's been an incredible journey... I'll be doing a proper write-up sometime next week but for now it's time to celebrate for a little bit before I get back to an exciting regime for the next two months (more on this on my next journal).

Anyways I'll say it again, I've come a long way haven't I...? :)

:star: Must... Finish... Comic...!

I'm currently on a home stretch guys... Only one more class (and it's it's Perspective starting at noon tomorrow) and then it's... OVER!! My year at the Academy of Art will be officially come to a close (classes that is). 

I've got exactly 15 hours before my two comic pages are due (well technically they only require one this semester) - but I'd like to finish both...

Let's see how I go...

Once again... *looks at the photo of new Sonic Boom concept art*

Duuuuuuude… You should take those comic pages and put them in the art improvement meme. Seriously, those are really nice improvements between the two years.

Thanks man! And that suggestion doesn't sound bad at all.

Hey, that first panel from the Sonic Boom comic looks fantastic! Any chance of that making it into a full color piece....maybe a print?

Yes, yes you have. I do recall reading your SA2 fan comic, and it's incredible to see how much you've progressed and developed your skills.
I think that since you just finished with your school, I might as well give you a little congratulatory-speech.
While you say that your journey's come to an end, I think a new one's about to begin for you, and I'm convinced that it'll be one driven by your dreams and passion. You have come a long way, and along it, you have demonstrated skills that have inspired many to become like you: to be open to your likes and dislikes, to test your limits and to never abandon dreams, no matter how others may regard them and how people may belittle your works. You've shown on multiple occasions your love for what you do, maturity and humility to any form of criticism, and altogether use everything, including motivation and perseverance, as means to improve yourself.

Yupp, you've come a long way. And you've done not only some good for yourself, but to many aspiring artists, including myself. For that, I say:

Congratulations on graduating successfully and thank you for everything. ;D

Now keep on doing what you do best: spread your love, passion and dreams, inspire your friends and followers.

And last but never the least, draw. :)

Man, I remember seeing your Sonic 06 prequel fan comic way back when, but you've been doing comic art before then, since 2002? 

No wonder you're so good, practice always makes perfect!

Keep up the great work Elson, never stop being awesome! :thumbsup::D
