deleted because...I deleted the colored version for my deviation "SMILE, you bastard", simply because I'm sick of hearing "oh, he looks like Sasuke!" and "omg Sasuke and Naruto" EVERY goddamn time I draw my characters realistically.
Look, the ONLY similarity between Sam and Naruto is their flippin' hair color!
And Spike and Sasuke? Similar bangs, and that's your reason for saying they're the same character? COME ON!
Sorry for the rare outburst of rage here, but seriously... I'm sick of all the this-character totally-looks-like-my-fav-anime-character people.
Go be Narutards somewhere else... I'm sick of it.
Sick of when everytime someone, no matter who it is, comes up with an original character, someone else is always there to compare them to some more or less famous Anime character! WHAT's THE POINT?!
No, really? What's the point?!
dear watchers... You guys are the best. I'm not aiming this rage at you. I love you guys and how supportive you are. So just pay no mind to this rant...

My editor also gave me some great tips and advices on what to do in order to get it published, like perhaps getting a literary agent, and ask some publishers in Norway to help me with signing contracts (if that happens), and just help me in the process of getting my novel published abroad.
Because, yes, I
