I saw an insurance commercial the other day with a cartoon dog. Shows that you can get inspiration from anywhere.

I would explain this to you, down to even what they're wearing, but I have a feeling nobody would read it, nor care xD Just know what pretty much every single little detail has a meaning.

I don't like her shirt, or how I coloured her face.
BUT OTHERWISE I LOVE IT TO PIECES :D

This is an OC of mine, Nina. She doesn't appear untill the third/fourth book of the one I'm currently writing now. Even though she has a short appearance, she is very vital to the story in many ways, right up untill the end, where she sacrifices herself in order to save Illia.
She's one of my favorite characters, so I'm going to bawl my eyes out when I'm writing that scene.

Speaking of my novel.
(Part 2 of) Chapter 3:

Spoiler! :
“I… I’m fine” I whispered.
No, I’m not fine. How can you think somebody who killed three people all because she forgot to look both ways before she crossed the street is okay?
“I guess we’ll have to take her back…” said the girl.
Please don’t talk like I’m not hear.
“Come on” said the boy with black hair, not seeming to like the situation any more than I did.
“But what about the people?” I asked weakly.
“They’re dead” he said as if there was nothing else to it. As if he didn’t care at all.
I gritted my teeth, trying my best to not shout at him, and dug my fingernails into the palm of my hand untill my knuckles were white.
Those people probably had lives, people who cared about them, people who will miss them. I took all that away. I can’t ever compensate for that, or for the people who lost their loved ones. So don’t tell me to “Deal with it” when I’ve done something so-
I wished I could say it. But I never had to courage. The worlds boiled in my throat, but I couldn’t let them slip through my lips.
I hated myself.
The tears I had been holding in began to fall reluctantly down my face. I held in my breath, not wanting to cry in front of these people, but I couldn’t bear it anymore. So I took a big breath, and sobbed.
My knees buckled under me, and I splashed into the cold pool of blood again, but I barely noticed.
I refuse to cry in front of these people.
I bit my lip so hard, a bland, metallic, taste filled my mouth. Then I sniffed, pushing back my hair with my bloodied hand. I could smell the blood, and I wondered how I never had before.
It was a rotten smell, one that made me think of death.

*Takes a deep breath*

First girl: She is an innocent, young girl who has many dreams and goals in her life (this explains why she's turned away from the others). But then she meets an older man, and unknowingly falls in love with him (this is why her hand reaches out towards the man, and her head is also turned towards him). Since she doesn't know that the man is already with another, she averts her eyes from the two.

The guy: He also falls in love with the younger woman, but knows that he must stay with the woman he is bound to. So he unintentionally leads the young woman on (this is why he also reaches out to the young woman, but the wall is blocking his way. He is also halfway through the right side of the wall because it shows how he is bound to another). His eyes are closed because he is too ignorant to acknowledge what he is doing.

The second girl: She knows of the mans feelings for the younger woman, and tries to desperately cling to him, but fails (this is why she cannot penetrate the wall separating them). Because she is the most beautiful of the two woman, she tries to seduce him back to her by wearing more revealing clothes (this explains why she's exposing more skin than the other woman). When this doesn't work, she falls into a pit of despair, doing all she can to keep the man with her.

While the wind draws the man and the younger woman together, another tries to pull the older one away.


Confusing? Sorry ^^;

EDIT:

Played around with my earlier post a bit more on Photoshop, and I like it :D Though I think her hair is too blue for my liking... >.>

Another (& the last) Request :D I'm actually really pleased with it because I had no inspiration for it before, and BAM! this things pops up on my page. It's a good feeling.


(Part of) Chapter 4:
Spoiler! :
Surprisingly, we didn’t walk that far.
A girl covered in blood, being led by three suspicious-looking people. Not strange at all.
The three abruptly stopped, causing me to bump into the girl, smearing blood into her white hair.
“Sorry” I grumbled, but I didn’t receive any reply.
I turned to look at the building that we stood before, and started. It was a large concrete square, with large, rectangular windows covering every inch of it, with the exception of large double-doors in the front.
Without a word, they marched towards the building, and I had to jog to catch up, despite the cries of pain from my legs. The boy with brown hair pushed open the front doors with care, and I couldn't help but gasp.
I was now inside of a large circular room, with large, stone walls that had to be at least fifty feet high. Every few feet around the room there was a wooden door with a black doorknocker instead of a knob. Above them there were multicolored signs that were labeled things like “lavatory” or “Chambers”. Some were as tall as my foot, while others reached higher than I could see, and were as wide as three buses lined up front to back.
Oh God. What have I gotten myself into?
I followed as the trio walked up to what looked like a ticket booth that sat in the center, which was labeled with a beat-up sign that read "Information booth".
Sitting behind the Plexiglas was a frail-looking woman with frizzy long hair. Her left eye was closed, while the right one remained wide, although I wished she had kept them both shut. Her one eye didn’t have a pupil, or Iris; it was completely white. But I could still see it move around restlessly inside it’s socket, as if it was desperately looking for something. When it finally fixed on us, she flinched, as if she hadn't seen us coming.
“Blood!” She yelped, pointing at me accusingly. The sudden shout caused me to jump and cry out, which in turn she screeched so shrilly that I thought my ears would burst.
“Yes, Amelia. Blood” sighed the girl “that’s why we need to get her to the infirmary. She’s hurt”.
The woman nodded so vigorously that I was afraid that her head would fall off. She lifted a trembling finger, and I heard a door swing open, smacking harshly against the wall. I spun around, expecting to see someone behind the door, but there was nobody.


Does anyone want me to post the full chapters? Would anybody read it? I wrote this a while ago, and it's horrendous, so I have to edit it each time before I post. Lazy me is lazy, I know, but I'm still in the process of writing it.

This is so ugly, it's almost comical D: but sadly, it's just really ugly. I think I might be getting the hang of shading...(?)

Don't you want her? Sorry, but she's too sexy for you. You're lucky you got a picture to stare at. I mean, large blue eyes, big boobs, small waist, wide hips, and long, blonde, hair. What else could you ask for in a woman?

I feel like I've been getting worse and worse quality-wise as of late D: I'm sorry if you think that's the case as well! I'll try to work on that...

Shiiiiit. I haven't commented on here in so long. Forgive me. I've been busy. But I have seen everything you've posted, I can assure you, and it all looks marvelous.

About your Christmas picture, perhaps downsizing it would lessen your dislike of it? I've heard that downsizing a picture will make the art itself appear better. It's hard to explain right now, but if you feel like trying it, you're free to.

I still stand firm in my decision that I would read that if possible. Love triangles are the one cliche that I don't hate to pieces. I'm crazy and nonsensical like that.

Tried to get the same effect I got from this, but failed. But I still like the end result! ^^ Except for all those ripples. Don't know where they came from...

I would've replied earlier, but it felt wrong posting when I didn't have any... art to go along with it. But I'm honored that you'd ask! *shiney eyes* Of course you can! And think you for the compliment! But sadly, I'm nowhere near where I want to be, so untill then I shall be forever unsatisfied... (I doubt I ever will be to the point where I want to be, but whatever xD)

EDIT:
I almost forgot this!

Everybody started to do alternate outfits, and I wodner if I missed out on that memo... oh well... I might do one and stick it in there when I have the time...

Between the two submissions, I would say submit the top one. The colors on the skin look a lot better on the top one. At least IMO.
Any SJ related questions? Feel free to look around, and if you can't find an answer, make a topic here and we'll get to you as fast as we can! :D

Oh, thanks! Actually, glad you said it, since I think I like the first one better as well...

EDIT
Anyone know how to change the thread name? I don't like this one anymore, because it feels as if I'm begging for compliments. So if anyone could help, it'd be grate appreciated. (I'm so lame xD)
