Life was like a box of chocolates by alphaleo14 Life was like a box of chocolates by alphaleo14
It was quite some time ago i haven't been posting any art for this past years, the main reason of my absent was I was very frustrated with myself and my skills, that is why for the past 3 years I switch to full time Gunpla building instead, and during those time of artistic depression, things are not getting any better, as more and more avoided incident and events that further pulled me down, and it was tiring and frustrating, but I still have to keep on moving, in a way i have switch myself to autopilot.

At those depressing time I was looking for inspiration and to my surprise Forrest Gump movie gave me a bit of comfort and encouragement during those hard time, a very simple story of a simple man doing great things even without him knowing it and the message was so powerful that it inspired me to sketch out this little doodle on what happen if Alphaleo met Forrest Gump in the park, and i believe this is what forrest would say.

For 2012, I was hoping to get back into drawing again. I am not sure will i get this color but for now i just keep it as a sketch.

I just had this pop into my Favorites, and I figured I would drop a line...I hope things have gotten better for you over the last nine months...and I understand all to well how being overwhelmed by real life and depressed can be a huge drain on the creative process.

If you need anything or just want someone to talk with, by all means drop me a line...perhaps it may help.

Take care of yourself, my friend, and stay awesome.
