In the absence of artistic expression...  
That's how I feel... I haven't been able to knock off any good drawings in days, and it's frustrating... I suppose that I'm in an artistic rut, you know.. I have all these ideas, but I can't pull any of them off in any pleasing way.. -_-;; it happens.. It's happened lots of times before.. you just can't draw.. I guess it's like writer's block or something...

But anyways.. I'm in no way pleased with this sketch.. it just looks odd, and as is often the case, the perspective is a bit off... but I really want to go somewhere with it. I'll have to redraw it when I feel more inspired, and use it as a teaser for my Yume to Yume webcomic.. the idea is sound -- that of Hinoai finally giving in and rushing up to kiss Yume.. and I think that it represents the feel of the comic that I'm looking for.. but I just need it to look better. ^^;; But for interest's sake, here is the sketch..

Comments, anyone? Lol, I don't even care if I get comments, but they always help boost my poor little ego. ^^;; ^.^ I really want this comic to go places, especially since there are a few very well done and well plotted sweet shonen-ai comics out there.. but not really much of anything in a shoujo-ai romance.. I want to change that, and make something that caters to the sweet side of all of us.. with plenty of angst. I suppose that it will read like a shoujo romance (think Peach Girl) more than anything, but hey, shoujo romance was my first anime love. ^__^ And alternative lifestyles are just so much fun to write about =^-^= As Shumea and I so gallantly do, almost every night.. We did another Ryu x Shu last night... I'll post it later.. it started out alright, but I was falling asleep at the end (actually did once).. so it kinda drops off.. someday I'll turn it all into a great series of Ryu x Shu fanfics! ^__^ Yay!!

Alright... agenda for today:

Do sit-ups. It's at least something to start me getting back that firm tummy.. *pokes it* too soft..
Finish and mail picture for Grandma
Watch some anime.. (Level C again, Weiss Kreuz Gluhen 3, Mizuiro Jidai 1 (again), misc others, and hopefully try again to finish Pretear)
Work on anime club t-shirt design. I have a good idea for once.. let's see if I can get that artistic streak back.
Find a 3ring binder for my Pencil Boards.. I know I have one somewhere...
Chat with Shu-chan! *most looking forward to this* but I have to keep myself away from the AIM button as long as possible, because some of these things need to get done.
Current Mood: annoyed

That is lovely! I adore the pic! Where can I see more of your work and do tell me more about this comic. It looks like a good, clever idea.

I like it... But I hear you about artistic ruts... I haven't drawn anime in 4 years because of the frustrations your running into now... But I would die for the kind of talent that you have.

It's a beautiful sketch!!! But I understand about not feeling like you're on top of it.... I feel like I haven't turned out a good sketch in a long time. I think I might be redeeming myself with the Nokoru sketch.

And PLEASE!!!! tell me if you can send me WK Gluhen ep 3!!! Or where I can find it!! I've been looking for it forever, and I NEED to know what happens!!! Onegai...!!! *whimper*

Ah, I think it's very cute! I like the expression on the girl on the left's face... ^_^ and you're right, I don't think there is much out there for shoujo ai, and if there is *I'm clueless actually* well, there should be more! :P

I know what you mean about being in a drawing rut. I hate it when I have an idea in my head and I can't even come *close* to drawing it. x_x

I like the piccy. It's cute. ^_^ Your style of drawing is nice. I can't type coherently today.

You artwork is awesome, as usual.. *sigh* I wish I had your talent... Well, I hear you about artistic rut, although it seems I'm finally out of mine - after months of meaningless ugly doodles that ended up in the trashcan.

I can't wait for you to be on AIM... I miss you...
