Critiques


My only problem is that the wolf's claws behind the false red's legs are distracting. For a moment I thought she was wearing some kind ...


As an experimental piece in animation it is incredible. Both stunning, believable and inspiring. My only criticism is what/how is such ...

Rampaging Cyclops riding extinct rhinocerous
In the times before the Great Flood there were many Cyclops, part of the experimentation the "Descended Ones" did on the flesh of man after direct breeding resulted in immense titans that touched the sky.  The Cyclops were meant to have human potential but divine presence but failed in both aspects, having low intelligence but incredible brutality and an endless lust for violence and flesh, especially that of man...

Part of the background for my "Shah-Azir, Exile of Irem" storyline coming soon...

Creative Journal 2017-2018
I like to decorate my artistic journals. These days I find it productive to have a separate journal to just draw. Like late at night with a paused YouTube/DVD or Pinterest picture. Just drawing practice. Then I put creative projects separate in a different one. That way drawing for practice alone doesn't interfere with stuff I'm working on. Also I just go forward with drawing practice but I frequently reference the creative works, I might jot down the idea for a story and come back to it much later...


Also I advise Kamar varnish - even on crude sketches to protect them from scuffing.

Upcoming comic and story series.

Suggested Music - Uriah Heep - "Blind Eye"

Good pens
Finally found some good pens that are waterproof when dried.

The bottom left - Shah-Azir play sketch - I inked it and did a real torture test - light blue scrubbed over the BLACK lines.  NO bleed.  The slightest black in the pen tip but easy to rub off on the paper.
Only India Ink in the bottle is as waterproof and I can't carry around pens, brushes, inkpots to the bookstore/coffeshop.


One note - the caps you need to push/pull hard to open and close - if you lightly push to close they'll be open and if they dry out it'll be the end of that marker.  Not a problem, just FYI.


And - though I LOVE this be aware:  Do NOT leave these alone with a Toddler...  The caps are not the modern abominable fake cap over real cap so air holes are there in case some idiot (or a toddler/baby) swallows it...  You do NOT want to have to use the X-Acto knife and a Starbucks straw on a kid's throat if the hospital is >5 minutes away - best solution to that problem, prevent it from occuring - these pens do not have the "Darwin Award" prevention...

Re-doing my work area on new years.  I came across an interesting thing, I found ten years worth of journals.  As a personal thing, I carry a journal/sketchbook with me in case some idea pops into my head that I have to jot down.  They also are very useful for prices, grocery lists, plot-outs of things to do, etc.  So I've had them over the years, and have customized some a lot while leaving others plain.


Some have ideas I later turned into stories, others data about important things I've long forgotten, a few Computer codes, html addresses, important passwords, etc.  Pure nostalgia trip.


It's an interesting transitory point, for this last year I've become addicted to "Moleskine" journals sold at bookstores, not that I'm above fixing those up either.  The reason is for the same one I went to the spiral binders from loose pieces of paper and supermarket plain pads.  When I started out, the "Book" format sketch journals were so cheaply and lousy printed (despite high price for good paper) that they kept closing shut and I was fighting to keep the things open even writing and scanning was a nightmare.  However, the ring binders get bent out of shape too quickly, snag things, etc.  So I went to Moleskine because I could open them all the way with no penalty and I could scan from them with little frustration.  Got a large format one to itemize my "Muzik" projects, but I'm not through sprucing that one up.


So it's a "Transitory" thing, I started seriously in 99 and transitioned away from spiral bound stuff in 09 for personal journals.


Oh, and a link for the "Music" mention:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUnI1L…
Just some Japanese game they'll probably never import, but the music's nice...
  • Listening to: "Call My Dears" from a Monochroma video

  • Watching: I don't do TV

  • Eating: Marzipan holiday candies
  • Drinking: More Cold Coffee
