Writing ANGST

One way to add excitement to your story is by adding lots of bad-guys, also known as EXTERNAL Conflict. Another way is by adding INTERNAL Conflict, more commonly known as Angst. I'm sure most of you have noticed by now that most movie characters, and far too many book characters, are One-Dimensional. They do stuff, but they don't face any personality issues: a hang-up, a fear, paranoia, a moral code, a love interest, a strong dislike… Or worse, they do have all these things, but they never really affect the story. There's a Plot Arc, things happen, but no Character Arc. The things that happen don't affect the characters emotionally. W

Welcome to my gallery. You can download my art but please don't reuse it for profit.  It's here for people to enjoy and add to their private collections which is why I don't add a watermark and why the download resolution is high.  My enjoyment was in the making of the art and in creating poses etc that I wanted to see characters in, particularly with fanart - I'm a big Sephiroth fan as you can see in my gallery. So enjoy!

Figured it was time to update my journal, so my account looks active. I'm working on a very detailed Sephiroth painting at the moment.  I'm using the high resolution CG promotional portrait as a ref to get the detail into my work but the composition is based on a different screenshot from the movie.  I'm probably about half way through with respect to laying the paint down but I've a lot of blending and touching up in front of me.  I can't seem to get enough of Sephiroth.  His look is so original and iconic.  I love painting him.  I've even got the pose for my next painting of him figured out.  However if I do get tired of painting him for s

how have you been? I'm hoping that you're doing alright and having fun still. ^^
Why howdy.

I'm fine. Spent a year working on backgrounds for a visual novel called 'Lads in Distress' (a twist on fairy-tales with gender-role swapping). It was fun being part of a team.
