Hello!  A lot has happened since my last journal.  I have graduated from California State University of Long Beach in the BFA Animation & Illustration program in May, I attended the VanArts Story and Character Masterclass and Workshop with Pixar in mid-July, not too long after I took a short Digital Painting course, I'm going to work on Tutorials and Workshops I have purchased, and I am currently updating my portfolio to turn in to Disney, Nickelodeon, and any studio I wish to work for.  It's all been going by so fast and it still feels strange to say that I am no longer a student.  And now I have to find work and soon.      


I've noticed the Premium Member price has increased and I really want to save my money on what I really want to do, like a convention or two I want to attend in the Fall, or any workshops or classes that will benefit me as an artist.  I especially want to go to CTN Animation Expo for another shot with the studios there.  I also need to let go of some things in my life if I am to save enough money for what I need and for fun things too.  That is why for the first time in years, I am no longer renewing my Premium Membership.  I am also not going to be on DeviantArt for a while.  For how long, I do not know but I know that if I am completely honest with myself, I really don't post art here as often as I used to.  And with the new Copyright Law, I'm also very cautious about posting original work on DeviantArt.  That is one reason why I am deleting a majority of my work from DeviantArt.  I'm having it all saved for myself and I will not post original content unless I have it copyrighted to my name by law.  I will keep a few works here of course, so that there is still a gallery to look at.


It's been a fun ride at DeviantArt but now it's time to get myself ready for the world.  And I'm going to need to dedicate as much time as possible to my dreams if I hope to make them realities.  I'm not deleting my profile, as I want to come back someday but for now I say farewell.  And to fellow artists, DA friends, loyal supporters, and Deviant Art itself, thank you for the memories.  








If you wish to keep up with what I am doing, I will be on these sites.  I will especially be active on my Facebook Art page, on LinkedIn, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Personal Quote: Do it with creativity

Hello, my name is Richard Cardenas Jr. Ever since I was a child I have had a profound love for drawing. As I grew up I developed many stories and characters with a lot of love and dedication put into them so it became my dream to publish my works for the world to see whether they be in the form of graphic novels, comic strips, (animated) shows, or even a feature film. Now I am in the BFA Animation Program at Cal State Long Beach and I am confident that I will make it no matter what career path I choose. Family, friends, and peers have always encouraged me to follow my passion and now that I am part of the DeviantArt community, there are artists from around the world who also encourage me to make my dreams come true. I'm very thankful for the friends I have made here and the people who continue to support me throughout the years.

I support fellow artists here in any way I can. :)

And I appreciate all and any support from fellow artists! :D
