EDITED, now with 2 more features and comments and life updates! (Probably important in about that order.)

So tired. Just getting these features done with so I can blab on my journals again aimlessly without guilt for forgetting the last features :]

"Omens" (tentative title) is nearly finished, or the rough draft is anyway. So far, capped about 20 pages, or 22,000 words (since it's hard to judge size because I type in little font [8pt-verdana]).. heavy revision's needed, but having the rough draft done will be a good marker for me.
Definitely will do some sketches of some kind, be they character concept sketches, random sketches, illustrations or inked. Keeping me sane, this story, I swear.

Something fun. (It's a link to an outside site, but so far as I know, harmless. Old-school gamers MUST MUST see this if they have not yet.)


Room for a couple more features - 3 more featured pictures/writing/etc for artists who want it. ♥</strike>

Better get to these before I forget. I picked the ones that are meaningful, artistically inspiring, or for the same or more reasons continue to 'wow' me. :heart:
PLEASE forgive me anyone featured if I failed to comment on the picture mentioned.. I have a lot of pictures piled up that I wanted to comment on but.. now pretty much have no hope of getting to. Doesn't mean I don't give it all a look anyway! <33

I should also mention in advance, I hope no one will berate me for picking any slightly older pictures - sometimes even for all your improvements (as I can tell a majority of artists are always critical and looking for improvement in their style) there are still elements of the pictures that truly stand out in my eyes. So please, don't be mad - means there's something I really like about a picture, old or new. <3

(Mikkhos and Sad-Adam are exempt from having to do this because.. they didn't want features -- but did I need moar people and I loff their galleries and wanted to give the wallflowers (with their reluctant permission) some deserved flattery ;] )

*(Hover your cursor over the thumbnails if you want my commentary, just to keep this journal a bit cleaner/shorter than usual.)

*I avoided any art featuring Ian or Sikiah because, though I'd pick them based on style and enjoyment both, it's still slightly biased ;]


While that's my favourite part, the beginning is here. ♥

MORE FEATURES IF YOU WANT ONE - someone grab it and fill this space! :heart:


As hard work as that was having to surf galleries and add commentary for each one (coding and organizing in the journal as well) I will do more features if they come my way, not just one. ♥ It was fun. And hopefully I didn't feature something that someone will want to murder me for. </3
Sure took a lot longer than expected. Must dash, so the simple layout will have to do. :typerhappy:

The tentative title for what looks to be a 3-part (albeit short considering my style) story is "Omens". I am also going to attempt some sketch illustrations to complement the finished part of Julien/Adair's history, which while I won't be submitting here, is going to be written after all. :]

Beyond that, I am hoping to tie up old projects that should be finished, such as Madness Laughs...
And I am CONSIDERING.. considering.. trying to actually illustrate RTS rather than write it. Anyone who was interested in the Salem brothers' saga, do give your thoughts if you're interested or what you'd prefer. (Illustrations of course would be a bit diminished by lack of practice lately and slower to be finished than writing.) I should pick one road or the other now and stick with it, and that oughta make it more likely to see RTS properly started.
Hopefully. 83

^^ Thanks for featuring me. I really like reading your little notes on everyone's stuff.

Must. Fight. Artistic. Imperative. To. Not. Ask. For. Attention..... GRRAAAH!!!

Okay, yeah, I'd love a feature. :D I'm notorious for being the quiet artist in the corner who draws everything but the attention of others, and so I'm going to just break through that insecurity of mine, and reach out with both arms crying "Feature me, please! And thanks for the offer!!!!"

Indeed you are so very quiet </33 I wondered if you had abandoned DA! Awww.

*working on features as we speak*
amandakittie Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009
Nah, I never abandon... sometimes take vacations from, but it's mostly that currently I'm getting ready to present my all-original musical to our local theatre to see if they'll put it on for their 2010 season and pay me monies! We'll see how it goes, but between rehearsals and recording the 16 song CD, I'm a bit strapped for time, and my arts, they suffer for it. At least the visual ones do. The theatrical arts are doing just fine kicking all other artistic leanings of mine into various corners of my brain. XD

But do not fear, I usually check DA every day, if only for a brief moment between work and the rest of my insane life, but I'll at the very least check a few times a week. :D Always haves to see if my favorite artists have put anything new up! :) By the way, your latest work has been LOVELY!

Keep it comin'!
Absolute-Sero Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
AWWW. That's awesome. I hear too many hardships that artists face in the modern times, it's good to hear things are picking up. (Art in any form, too ;3 )

Don't worry about commenting on my stuff 'cuz.. I'm a lurker ^^;
I don't mind comments coming and going, and if people just glance over then I'll still be here when life calms down. :D

Woot! Hopefully the sign of a good year X3

Aw thanks for the features, love.

Now I have to berate you because you said ~"I hope no one berates me on picking older pictures."

Watch me go...


Haha I'm having more fun just using the word berate.
Absolute-Sero Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Chah.. I was just sad I had to push you into it. D'aw.

And berate IS a fun word.

(I think more than being berated I'm worried about some artists getting unnecessarily self-conscious and putting more of their galleries into storage.. agh. It's awful to see their work disappear when their art/writing is awesome at any stage in development.)
Sad-Adam Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha, I scrapped my gallery almost completely. 8D Only picture I've thought about deleting that gets attention is my troll one, just to be a pest. I'd loose about 95% of all traffic on my gallery. 83
Absolute-Sero Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
LOL. I have the same reason for the fanart of a comic character hiding in my ancient art (it makes me cry, I drew it in a gas station while stranded in the mountains) but not.. deleted or stored like most of my anciently intolerable sketches.
And because I'd feel bad because that link to it on the website would be brokeded. Gyah. </3
Faithless-Wife Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2009
Ooo I love looking through these. :), do me I guess? I don't have much on this account though. >.<
Absolute-Sero Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Gawd some of my friends here deserve more views than they have. </3

8D Cha, 'tis no problem~ ♥
Faithless-Wife Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009
Thanks! :D
