I think it's safe to say my hiatus is over. I would hate for something unexpected to happen but I am drawing everyday and I can get on the internet again which is nice..."
Well...something did happen. Hurricane Sandy happened lol And luckily, all that happened in my area was a power outage. The winds were pretty ridiculous and they knocked over trees and branches and powerlines so I couldn't get online or anything. I also had a picture to upload for Halloween but now its late...but I'm grateful that these things are the least of my worries...other areas and people have been pretty devastated by the hurricane.
I hope everyone else who was affected by the hurricane is ok. I'll upload any pictures and update my commission journal once I get the chance.

The Kidnapped Students
After Higashimori High School received the mysterious voice file, the number of missing civilians increased noticeably. This confidential information came from police reports provided to Headmaster Mizuyama, who then identified victims that were students from the school. It was a troubling observation, but the students were mostly Persona-users, and among the list were the following:

Book 3 Info! From Inside the book of Spirits"Harmonic convergence was a major event where this crazy spirit energy, we saw it wash over the entire globe and pass through everything and every person, so, it remains to be seen what effects that had on people and the world. There was quite a bit of destruction from the crazy battle between giant spirit Korra and Unavaatu, and Unavaatu did this thing where he caused all these spirit vines to grow, so now there’s this thing where we have this giant metropolis but there’s these crazy jungle vines growing over huge sections of it where these spirit wilds like from Wan’s time have kind of cropped up throughout the city. And now there’s going to be spirits hanging out in those, and so a lot has changed, and it’s only a few weeks later…” - Bryan KonietzkoBook 3 Info!

This being said, what invite slots we did have, are now all full except for five Special Invite slots you can apply for called the Final Five . In order to try for one of these slots, you must be extremely confident in your art and have the ability to write an exceptional biography that will win over at least three of our staff members.

In the world of Generation 48, the setting takes place in Tokyo and in the nation of Japan. Oracle, a talent agency works in the same area as many of our affiliate groups such as Tachikawa, Furuya, and Yukimura high school, placing our characters into the same universe. Members of Generation 48 are allowed and encouraged to interact with other affiliate group OCs and members in order to build a community of roleplayers who come together to have fun. Generation 48 ‘s group theme is revolved around idols, but the message we wanted to give out is unity. Joining hands with all of our peers to have a great time.

1. Do your damn research. I can't stress this enough. We live in the freaking Information Age, and the concept of Googling is an alien one to too many people. While I could easily go on a rant about anti-intellectualism, I'll rein it in and say that cliché' is largely anachronistic. People use them because they're familiar, not necessarily what's true. When I started world-building for my Western steampunk/cattlepunk trilogy, one of the characters was the equivalent of a Chinese immigrant worker. So I read everything I could get my hands on about what it was like to be a Chinese immigrant worker. Wikipedia articles, fiction, and non-fiction. I also read authors like Lawrence Yep

before that you should look up some informations
you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop
reason for that is simple.
my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.
by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.
qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.
to any 3d artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing
for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear more intensively the closer planes of an object are together.
i can get into this and make it a long discussion , but easier w
