To be honest, it is kind of frustrating being confronted with your failures directly, and also painful. Japanese Manga is like martial arts for those who perform it.
But, I am learning more and more, never standing still because I want to become much stronger than now!

New anime time! :3 Help Me chooseSo I just finished watching Fate/Zero.... whoa. really. Epicnessxover9k.New anime time! :3 Help Me choose in Personal More Like This
It was pretty freaking good! :iconyeashplz: To me it wasn't perfect, like I lot of people say it is, due to the fact that the dialogue was very heavy and sometimes very confusing, and I still haven't seen the original Fate/Stay Night so maybe thats why it was confusing I wanna watch it sometime X) but I want to watch some other animes before doing so.
But overall I really reccommend Fate/Zero to anyone who liked action packed anime on the 'mature' side! The character designs are BEAUTIFUL and the animation is simply FLAWLESS. :iconhontoplz: Check it out! It's awesome!

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears.

The Muse AbidesAsk any artist about “emptiness” and they’ll tell you about the constant recurring nightmarish emptiness they must face down almost every day as a part of their vocation: the blank space that they must fill.

Louie Schwartzberg has made it his life’s mission to use his cinematic artistry to raise the alarm for public awareness of the dire situation we are facing in the possible collapse of our taken-for-granted natural resources. The “colony collapse disorder” currently decimating our honeybees was the prompt for Louie’s new movie, Wings of Life, which at it's essence, is a love story that feeds the earth.
