You've gotten tremendously better since you linked your artwork on the Senran Kagura boards many years ago. And your written works aren't half bad either.
I've been following you over the years. I decided to do so because I had plans to draw one of your characters. This may sound insane, but both times I would attempt it, I'd run into some of the worst luck. It's like your OCs are cursed or something. Granted, my desire to draw your characters might have come from a minor place of hubris. That, however, is a different story.
Your horror stories are quite interesting. How you don't have more watchers after eleven years on this website is alien to me. I'd love to do a collaboration of some sort. I have some decent storytelling skills myself, even if my gallery is more inclined towards art. But I do plan to post more literature.
And just a quick heads up If you do decide to check out my work, I draw heavy women. I don't know if that would be an issue or not. But thank you for reading.
Thank you! I honestly didn’t think I’d ever reach this point, but I’d take myself as proof that anyone can learn if they just keep practicing.
which of my OCs did you want to draw? I’m curious to see them if you ever break the curse. (I’m curious about the hubris too :P)
and thanks! I’ve accepted that getting “noticed” on DA is basically a matter of pure luck, either because the algorithm decides to favor you or some big name artist starts following you or at least faves some of your works. And since I don’t upload super frequently I doubt I’ll get noticed in that way, nice as it would be to get more followers. Maybe one day I’ll get lucky?
collaborations are fun, did you have anything specific in mind?
The hubris was me lowkey thinking, "I'm at least miles better than this guy. Let me show him how it's done." The first attempt I would try, something minor happened IRL that diverted all of my attention to that problem. It humbled me very quickly.
It was Jennifer, I believe. All I remember is that she was wearing red. I was planning on drawing her extra thicc. At least what that looked like at my skill level. What I didn't know was, I would inadvertently be showing up someone who was on a lower skill level than mine, and I apologize for that now.
I don't have anything in mind, but I would be open to taking a third shot at Jennifer when I get around to doing it. I think if I get your "permission" to draw her, that will break the curse.
Well, back then my skill level was probably around that of the average elementary schooler, so showing me up then would probably have been pretty easy. ^^;
took me a few minutes to even remember who Jennifer was…hard to believe it’s already been seven hears since then. Finally just plugged the name into the search bar and went “oh yeah, the one with the doll joints.” Sure, go ahead.
