This is a sampling of some of the better paintings I did in my summer in Japan. God I miss those times...

•Left: A temple structure housing a GIANT bell. Painted from the veranda of the main hall at Miyoshinji.

•Top Right: A view of the tea house at Daishin-in, a temple in the larger Miyoshinji complex.

•Bottom two images: Both were painted around the large pond at Joruriji. A temple known for its main hall with a bunch of buddha figures in a row... can't remember how many or why it was so significant. However, I do remember getting eaten alive by mosquitos while painting those images!!!

Anyway, I hope ya'll enjoy the my paintings... though these places were far more beautiful in person, my paintings do them little justice.

Have U seen my drawing's of the "blood alien's" that I made... I really want to put these guys in super smash brothers :D. Hopfully in the next 5 to 6 years my aliens would star in that nintendo game :).

A lofty ambition, but with hard work and dedication, anything can be achieved... well, with in the limits of physical possibility... I don't think hard work and dedication could make, say, a planet vanish or something... anyway, you get the point! Try your hardest!! It can happen!

Are you talking about my drawings? :-?
Usagisama's avatar
Oh, I was just referring to the difficulty of getting a character into Super Smash Bros... but that its certainly not impossible if you try hard enough :) That's what I was trying to get at with my rambling writing! :XD: Sorry, I hardly understand my own words most of the time!! :faint:
