Tales of Vesperia: Flynn Scifo

Incoming rant - please enjoy this lovely man with his lovely flowers instead of reading what comes after. (^^*)

I... feel sad.

I didn't think it would be easy, but I thought I had a chance.

I lost the webtoon contest. I'm not even part of the honorable mentions and I didn't think it would make me this sad. I should feel accomplished about beating an impossible deadline, but I gained weight and an eye infection for it, and now it feels like I wasted my time... again.

I feel sad. And maybe also a little frustrated.

So I decided to draw someone who could cheer me up. I couldn't draw Otoya, because he's been ignoring me in Shining Live for a while now, haha!

So I drew Flynn instead. With a bouquet of flowers... so I can imagine him telling me that I did my best and accomplished more than I ever thought I could. And that I shouldn't give up on my dreams just yet, and just keep going.

And I will keep going, but right now... I just feel sad.

And maybe that's okay. Tomorrow will be another day, and I will be better.

Apteral: Episode 4

I didn't think I'd make it..! This is probably the first time I'd ever been able to beat a deadline with one day to spare! And it feels amazing!

...that's the good news. The bad news is, my eyes feel weird. I feel tired all the time, and it might just be fatigue, but my eyes are really scaring me right now.

I may need to see a doctor about this. Hopefully I can get some answers before the next deadline comes up. For now, I should probably rest and stay away from the computer for a while.

Apteral: Episode 3

Oh, well... someone's pretty pissed off! He's not even using attack spells yet... Shuei just wanted to make a huge distraction so that he and his siblings could get away safely!

I really miss drawing action scenes... These are not exactly easier than drawing shoujo, but I just think it looks cool! I need to find a ton of reference material for the next few episodes though, I'm really rusty!

A friend of mine is getting me into Tales of Vesperia lately, and it has a lot of flashy sword fights. I should watch some of the play throughs available on YouTube. Maybe that will get me some ideas.
