Recent disappearance + New Book

(gosh it's been a while since I wrote one of those!)

Hey everyone, thanks for still being around even though I haven't been updating my deviantart in the past few months. [yes, I'm GUILTY AS CHARGED] :iconcryforeverplz:

The reason why I wasn't feeling like updating my deviantart is mostly because I don't have anything shiny or finished or polished enough recently.

I moved to my own apartment last November and I'm now officially living off of my own art! That's so freaking cool!... but I've been so caught up on freelance work that I can only feed my social media with sketches and studies, nothing that I judge "worth" of a submission here.

Skull And Teeth Studies by Picolo-kun

The rough stuff

I'm 'the guy who skipped art education' trying to make art as a living. This thought haunts me more than I would like to admit. That's why, since last year, I've been focusing on learning everything from scratch: fundamentals such as anatomy, perspective, grayscale values, color theory and so on. I feel safer to upload these on other social media such as my instagram and twitter because posts feel less compromised there, they feel like a daily/quick thing. On dA I feel like every single post counts and it has to be always bigger, better, stronger than the previous one.

But wait a second, remember how this account started?

A doodle a day keeps procrastination away

I used to be called 365 days of DOODLES, my very first project in which I uploaded one drawing a day, however good/bad it was. Not only that but the fact that someone on facebook called me out today like "why did you stopped posting on deviantart?"made me realize I shouldn't hold my posts sacred. Here to say I'll try my best to keep you updated here too, so thanks again for staying around. ❤

In other news, I'm releasing A COLORING BOOK!

 FullSizeRender (1) by Picolo-kun
Constellations parade

CELESTIAL features all my recent constellations drawings, the zodiac arrows and their archers (yea the archers! I've been wanting to post them since forever now!). The book is coming up on June 6th, but you can already preorder here:…

Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed drawing them! 💜

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
Picolo-kun made a mark on the DeviantArt community from the moment he joined. Starting off his DeviantArt career with his 365 Days of Doodles project, he was an instant hit with his complex daily drawings. From there, he continued to challenge himself and the DeviantArt community to create art in new and different ways. Once the 365 Days of Doodles were complete, he started a new palette project in which he focused on a different color in his artwork each month. Recently, he also hosted a challenge on Sketch This in the Autodesk Sketchbook mobile app. Outside of his artwork, hes hosted his own challenges with prizes for the DeviantArt community. If you venture through his journals, youll see various stories about his growth, art features promoting other artists from DeviantArt, and tips and tricks for beating procrastination.

Although hes only been a member of DeviantArt for two years, Picolo-kun has quickly become a core part of the community. It is for this reason that we are proud to award Picolo-kun the Deviousness Award for April 2016.

I am in love with your art! Especially the sketchbook art. Amazing! May I know what kind or brand of water color you usually used?

Hey Picolo-kun while i was admiring your works of art regarding Icarus and the Sun i noticed that the motives for your character Icarus was hazy at best. at the point of the two separating (the break up) his reasoning is revealed to be his skepticism that the Sun loves him with all his flaws. The motives of the two seem too shallow and unconvincing for the level of intimacy and importance you wish o portray. The two can only be described as a lonely sun and insecure boy. Just a little constructive criticism but wouldn't it be more convincing if you focused on more mature maters such as the fear of being extinguished/death. (both can be extinguished) or the long solitude the sun has had to suffer through due to her nature. You have a far more convincing forbidden love story in the making instead of the re-used high school adolescent love story archetype. Despite my criticism its a great work of art and visual narrative good job and keep up the good work!

Hello, Gabriel Picolo!
I really like your art and I especially like the Icarus and wax series!
I really draw inspiration when it comes to stories with the two, therefore I was thinking of writing a story about them and would like your consent on uploading it to the famous website 'Wattpad'. 
Of course, I would like to talk to you about the characters and hear a bit about them so my story will be accurate. Hopefully, you will respond.
