    On top of what everyone else said, all of which is valid, I'd like to say this - remember the person you started writing for in the first place. Chances are, that person was you.

    As long as YOU care, that's the most important thing.

    I know, easy to say, hard to keep that in mind. But...if it's in you, it's for you. Nice if other people read it, but the stories are YOURS.

    That's pretty much exactly the sort of pose I'd prefer. Though, like I said before, I'd like one that's just lineart, or one where the lines are clearer like on Nik's first one. I really just want to get the basic pattern and colors down, I'm not really capable of anything more advanced. Anyway, the old-school shading on yours would be very difficult for me to work around.
    Unfortunately I can't find anything in a higher resolution than this:



    However, assuming you're working in Photoshop of Illustrator or something, you could always increase the resolution, crop what you need, and trace over it, perhaps?

    I don't believe that I can say anything more profound or supportive than what others have already stated. But remember, you started this novel because you wanted to express yourself and your creativity. The fact that your title sold proves that there *are* people that enjoy the world that you've constructed or at least, they want to see more of it even if they can't properly articulate what exactly they love about it. Take pride in that and don't let yourself be discouraged. Most importantly, you need to focus on yourself. Do you want to continue or do you feel pressured to continue? If the former, keep going.


    OT: I just found out today that Kirby Morrow (the American VA of Miroku, Van Fanel, Son Goku, Cyclops from X-Men:Evolution, Trowa Barton, among others) just passed away yesterday. May he rest in peace.

    Ichigo: What even *are* you?!

    Kenpachi: Some say my mother was a train. Some say that I'm a rejected Godzilla monster too strong for the series canon. But everyone says: I'M THE KEEEEENPACHIIIIII!!!!

    Seems Nozomi Entertainment is slowly uploading HD-upscaled episodes of their anime backlog onto their YouTube channel.

    I'm hoping they'll get to Dirty Pair eventually, but uprezzed Revolutionary Girl Utena seems like it'd be a nice rewatch down the road

    My take on Dragonball Super was pretty simple.

    Goku seems to have forgotten he can use instant transmission.

    What do you mean by that?
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    Well, decided to read a manga, Shigurui. And while I do find the premise interesting (basically a major how did we get there story about two crippled men about to sword fight to the death with a history between them), I got to say that the story so far as I'm reading is really really bleak.

    Like the everyone is either so heavily flawed that I can barely root for them or so much of a terrible terrible human being that I look forward to their demise only to surprisingly feel hollow since it doesn't really resolve anything as the manga probably intended you to feel. Doesn't help that the setting really emphasizes how shitty these people kinda are in whatever way.

    Oh, and yeah, there's a lot of gore and other unpleasant things in there akin to Berserk. The rather well done art only again makes it squeamish.

    I do admit, the sword fights are interesting so there's that.

    I guess the fact that one thing I'm doing in my story kinda reminds me of this manga (since it's all about a sword school) is what kept me reading it despite how depressing the thing gets.

    read it years ago. it's a nice story but just depressing as fuck. it's how two men were affected by bushido and how it did neither of them any good in the end.

    Hooo yeah, quite the understatement to boot as well.
