Vivamus by DrZime Vivamus by DrZime
A silly little concept I've had for a while. Combining good old fantasy and good old sci-fi.

I have a severe love and hate relationship with the lineless style I've been perfecting. It takes FOREVER, but I also like the result.

There are one thousand good reasons for not using that cheap photoshop grass tool. And, all of those reasons are simply this: each blade of grass looks better drawn by you. Even if you have to do it with a mouse like me. (I'm a tablet-less fool.)

-----


Let us live, my Lesbia, and love,
and value at one farthing
all the talk of crabbed old men.
Suns may set and rise again.
For us, when the short light has once set,
remains to be slept the sleep of one unbroken night.
Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred,
Then another thousand, then a second hundred,
then yet thousand, then a hundred.
Then, when we have made up many thousands,
we will confuse our counting, that we may not know the reckoning,
nor any malicious person blight them with evil eye,
when he knows that our kisses are so many.


~ Catullus (from the Latin)

Aw xDD That's okay. I'll force my brother to learn Icelandic, then I'll buy the book, and make him read it to me. ...Which will be kinda hard, because my brother's 3 years older than me...and I'm weak.

Mouse rocks. For a long time I didn't have a tablet so I colored my images through the mouse. It gave me a chance to focus on color. I actually created my Birth of Space: Seed Creator, which earned a DD, through the mouse. Power to the mouse, I say! :boogie:
