DBZ - Passion - 18

情熱. PASSION - As a river flows
( Piccolo X Gohan )

At LAST! My first new page of 2013! My apologies for the delays, but if you’ve been monitoring or follow my journal at all, then you would already know how come and there’s no need to explain. Sometimes life rears a head and it is what it is : /

If anything at all immediately dawns on me having worked on this small lil’ mini doujin over the passed couple of days, it’s that it has reeeeeeally been a while since I have drawn Toriyama-style for any lengthy time. It was almost as though I had to go watch some DBZ and shake off the rust. Mentioned a number of occasions in the past, most all of my fans here are aware that I once worked as author/illustrator for the Dragonball doujinshi title ‘Hob-nudian Chapters’ (DBHC) through the now defunct Huryuki group. That title ended in 2001 so since then --besides a few scattered drawings here and there-- I haven’t had too many excuses or reasons to maintain the technique. My work in resent years have been predominately my own signature form of drawing manga, which I see as a blending of western/eastern influences.

---Then I received a tattoo design request, and now this here ; D I confess that this has been a scene that has found it’s way into my mind and creative spark more than once. I’m glad that I can finally bring it out on paper for you to enjoy. Even so, with that in mind, I decided I would not be following Toriyama-sama to the exact letter. You’re still going to see elements of myself in here and quite frankly I believe it’s better that way. You should be yourself on Deviant. This is about YOUR art ...not pre-existing, been there, done that ~ Enjoy!

Oh, by the way. In case the title is obvious enough, yes this is yaoi, and yes, actually I DO have a fetish for Gohan and Piccolo. Thanks for pointing that out. I own many doujinshi by many different artists and friends in the business. If this is a problem for you ...hey, back button yourself to another Deviant.

Something about the way you draw his facial proportions - maybe it's the length and sharpness of the nose? - makes your art, like, extra mega appealing. I love it. Also rawr moar Piccolo-butt!
Hope you're feeling a bit more at ease, if perhaps not necessarily 'better'. Sorry for your loss. There's absolutely no rush, we'll all still be here, happy to see more Passion, however long you need or want to take on it :) Nice to have you back!

So sorry to keep you waiting. I have a lot of catching up to do here People and friends to answer, fans and favorites to thanks, and whole backlog of work just begging my return. Thank you for sharing your thoughts w/ me. I honestly do appreciate it.

I seem to run out of words (often) to express the impact of losing William. Maybe I just can’t because there really is nothing I have felt in which to compare it too. I accept defeat. You know, people talk about that proverbial 'crossroad' of life. For myself it was more like standing at a bus stop look attentively as the bus pulled away from me and waving goodbye until it disappeared. I was still waving ...still standing there minutes after ...several minutes after. It's so, so hard walking away. Much harder than I ever imagined. It's like, "What now?" "What do I do now?" "Where am I going?" and "How do I get there?" Somehow you don't quite believe death can do that to you, but it does. I have to go on. I MUST go on, but I'm leaving you here. I go to you, but you will not come to me ever again. It's hard.

Oh absolutely, don't worry about it. I couldn't begin to imagine what it's like to lose someone close to you like that. It's good to see you getting back out there, hope you're feeling a bit better. I'm sure it never gets easy, but it does get easier with time.
Take all the time you need :)

Thanks for understanding. I marvel that I've actually had some 'followers' yelling (more or less) at me over lacking updates. They didn't even know, realize, or even cared to read that I had a death in the family. I've been really hurting a lot over this. I feel like I've lost a spouse most the time more than a friend.
