I love that you took the time to do a whole comic, even tho you hadn't done anything like it before. You took it step by step and really tried to improve your skill to make the entry as best you can! I like the colorfulness of the entry and the textless comedy of the scene.

Ikah and Tiger Ikah and TigerMore Like This
Ikah padded through the tunnels, her sharp orange eyes glowing faintly in the half light. The beta had her head down slightly to keep herself from bumping against the ceiling. The sun was going down and soon it would be time to hunt. Ikah was antsy- as she usually was when she wasn't sleeping or hunting. Her sandy brown ears flicked dirt off of them that steadily fell from the ceiling.
Tiger awoke from his nap, he came out of the Medic's den which was right next to the oasis water, but underground. He stretched out and yawned. It was at dusk that he went out, avoiding the burning heat of the day. He took a few steps towards the path leading outside of the tunnels when he caught a scent. He turned to the left, where another path connected to the exit path. It was his beta! A smile appeared on his face as he waited to see Ikah's image emerge from the dark.
Ikah smelled the pungent perfume of male mixed with the soothing scents of
Something about talentI've always disliked the term "talented".More Like This
It implies that things come to you naturally and without any effort, while in reality the people that are considered extremely talented rarely get to the top without any practice. And the 'rarely' is an understatement. I've never seen anyone reach the top without effort. Not ever. I dislike how 'not having talent' is often used as an excuse for not being good at something, while in reality the only real reason that keeps people from accomplishing things is not working hard enough for it. And sure, not working hard enough can have its reasons. Very valid reasons like having different priority's in life, not having enough time next to your school, job or family life, or even battling an illness. It doesn't change the fact that you're capable of doing it.
I always tend to compare art (or any craft in that matter) with running a marathon. Anyone that's not severely handicapped could run a marathon, but it takes a lot of dedication
There and Back again (Australia that is)I made it! Touched down on English soil this morning after gosh-knows-how-many-hours of travel induced containmentMore Like This
For those of you who don't know, or have terminally shot term memories: I have been out in Australia for two Supanova conventions! I journaled the first part of my adventures here:
Before leaving I had sent out a plea for help a the conventions, and it turns out people are really quite nice, and I was inundated with offers! So, like in some weird online blind date thing, I chose a few people who I'd never met before to help out behind my tables XD Sounds like a recipe for disaster, but it was a recipe for awesomeness! The girls were delightful, worked really hard, and were not at all like the weird internet strangers your Mum warns you about. It was great to feel like I wasn't alone out there
Below is myself (you'd never guess which one ) and Mahalia and Lilliee, who were my boss little team at Melbourne. Huge thanks also to
