Hi there, everyone. I just wanted to let all of you know that I'll be leaving on a really fun Painting Trip up to Northern California high up to the mountains of Bishop, CA.  Will be nice to explore more of this area!  I drove past Bishop on another up to Northern California up to the area of Mono Lake, which is another really cool place to visit.  Shall be leaving next week on Monday, June 25 Tuesday, June 26 (Painting Day up at the Bristlecone Pine trees up on White Mountain.

OC Feature

0 min read
I saw my new DA artist friend, shaygoyle ( do this fun journal to spread the love of art around, and to show the many OCs (Original Characters) we artists come up with.  If someone comments on this Journal I will put their DA icon with one of their artwork, and why I like it.  Let's have a lot of fun with this! :w00t:! 1. *shaygoyle ( :thumb582668535:  This is one of the best drawings I've seen of Kagome and Inu-Yasha with a child that is now an adult.  Lovely background of a meadow and a sky with puffy clouds (which are very hard to do correctly in Adobe Photoshop). 2.  :iconLeena-A: :thumb45606561:  One of my absolute favorites

Oh wow! This looks really interesting! It's been a while since I drew any "Inu-Yasha" fan arts. =D Thank you so very much, Antoni. "Inu-Yasha" is one of my favorite manga series. :nod:

I hope you can join this.

That is very thoughtful, as well as kind of you!! =D I will check it out soon, Antoni! :) Thanks again!! :clap:

I must say I am disappointed with the amount and quality of feedback I received. I gritted my teeth and did my best to come up with substantive and objective commentary on the picture of yours while the one thing I got in return was that I should capitalize words like mum and dad, which is not really an equivalent exchange.

I try to be the man of my word and it hurts me to see that some people say one thing and do another.

I'm really sorry, and things have gotten busy with upcoming art exhibits. It is very much appreciated for your input on my manga artwork. Will do much better to be more constructive in my critics of your stories. As both an artist and a writer I feel that adding in more backstory to the characters makes them feel much more believable. The characters were interesting, yet they felt half-baked in the first chapter. One rule that I've learned is less is more. You want to show, NOT tell a story, which also seriously bothered me.

I keep my promises as well, and I'm sorry for causing any misunderstandings.

It's a relief that I must withdraw my accusations but I hope you understand that after two months of silence I had my doubts. Wish you luck with the exhibits. If the story doesn't bore you, what would you say to extension of our little exchange: for each comment on one of my chapters I could give you feedback on a chosen picture of yours... or perhaps yet something else? You said you're a writer as well but I don't see any texts in your gallery.

I am very much aware that the beginning of the story is rushed but thank you for an honest opinion. It's one of the things I'll have to rewrite in the first place. Still, I tried to flesh the main characters more in the subsequent chapters so I'd be happy to find out if it helps my case. Show, don't tell rule is another thing I'd have to familiarize myself with. It seems my meticulosity may be a double-edged sword after all.
