I give you complete permission to take things from a thread I made in the starter gallery called "When Mahlua was a baby artist" or whatever I called it, and then more recent works of mine. I made that thread with a similar purpose in mind: to show where I came from and that art is a long, long journey.

One bullet point from me would be "If you don't want to hear people critique you on a certain aspect of your art, that probably means that thing is exactly what you need to work on."

A Hulk Hogan rant, but he says "Onii-Chan" instead of "brother."

That sounds like a gift unto this gods-forsaken universe.

Well this is suddenly getting a lot of new life. Jeez. Reminds me that I said I'd work on something for all the Tans so we'd have a collective image of them. Hrk.

Let me know if you ever want someone outside to test run the downloads and see if the thingamajigs work. I don't program for crap, but I can read and click things.

Next challenge: fighting that slant though.

Stuff to avoid: you mean shading with black on low transparency? lmfao.
Let me know if this ever gets off the ground. I love nothing more than talking about myself and the things I do for ages.

(i had in mind oniisan, oniichan, aniki etc for "brother")

That actually made the dub of Sister Princess hilarious, because each of the girls used a slightly different term for brother, and in the dub they had to come up with 13 different ways so each of the girls would, as in Japanese, refer to him differently. One of them already used French, so that was nice.

More to the point of the thread, Sister Princess is definitely in my top 10 nostalgia anime, along with Hellsing, Bleach, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, and Marchen Awakens Romance. Let's see, that's five...I don't know how long it would take me to come up with five more...

Glad and sorry to hear that for you, bud. So far none of my online orders have done anything super crazy in either direction. Sometimes things will be a little later than expected, but that's shipping for you.

@Lego: Because then you get gems like Queen's Blade where the voice acting is so bad it's funny in some points, but startlingly well-delivered in others. The same goes for a lot of things done by ADV films back in the day. The range of skill in some of the older stuff adds its own layer of something. Then again, I find the whole dubbing process fascinating, so maybe that's me exploring that area of interest while also watching an anime.

@Suuper: the cultural context thing is always a poor excuse for sub>dub. You'll lose cultural context because things down to body language and tonality cannot be conveyed in a simple translator's note. You lose cultural references in subs all the time, pretty much just as much. Unless you are fluent within the culture to almost a native-speaker degree, you have no way of knowing. So the subtitles are really just the same as a dub script. The subtitle translator had to pick and choose which words to use in what lines, just the same way as a dub translator, and which things to explain in little notes. The difference is negligible. I also know just a little Japanese, and it always irks me when people choose a different translation than what I'd go with for a certain line delivery. Because Japanese is such a context-based language, there is no 1:1 translation into English. Ever.
A good example of this are some lines that can be translated as "Let's go"
Pardon if my transliterations are slightly incorrect here. You can have "Ikimashou ka?", "Ikmashou.", "Iku iku", and say, "Ikou ze". They all basically mean "Let's go". But do you know the cultural implications between them? Probably not. And the subtitler is probably not going to put in a translator note on it because it would take forever to explain.
I've had to ask my friend who does speak Japanese to tell me if characters switch between polite and impolite forms, and usually that's a thing that's not noted in translator notes, but it is VERY important to understand what's actually said.

That wraps up all I have to say on the matter, really.

...That's fair, I guess. I get a little motion sick trying to draw in transit, but I do find myself waiting a lot. But then I always get anxious because I feel like if I start something, I won't complete it. My brain is mean to me sometimes. That's why I'm in therapy, lol. That said, it would be a good exercise to try to break my brain away from doing those kind of mean things to me where it's like "Don't start because you won't finish".

Y'all seriously almost make me wanna join in this silly 1k regimen. But I don't really have time for that. I do have time for coming up with hilarious ideas for your next regimen though.

I see nothing really wrong with Lego maximizing what he does with these figures. What shapes and construction types go into them is an important thing to play around with to figure out what works best for what kinds of characters and figures and a whole lot of other hooplah.

Also, that bed and the table and bench with the figures interacting with them. Jeez. Makes all of my perspective stuff look grody as heckie.

Y'all wanna fight me? Sure, dubs used to be pretty horrible in through to the early 00s, but these days, they're pretty good, especially since voice acting for dubbing has become recognized as a more legitimate profession. You can hate a dub for being particularly subpar, but to say they're all bad is quite a terrible overgeneralization. Might I suggest the dubs of:
Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne
Soul Eater
Panty and Stocking
Fullmetal Alchemist (original and Brotherhood)
as well as the two Lego mentioned.

And that's just off the top of my head.

I watch most anime in dub, literally unless there is no dub (e.g. my yuris.)

"The willful sacrifice of accuracy... For the sake of kawaii"
That sounds like another regimen for y'all to try over at the other place. 1,000 SUPER LEWD OR SUPER CUTE FIGURES. NO IN BETWEEN.

Yeah, MRverse is so expansive. I feel like with everybody taking up animation, though, we could do one of those epic anime intro type mash-ups where various stories are touched on and given a brief moment to shine in art. MEPs, they're called. It'd take forever and probably never get done, but that'd be the best way, I think, for a big project to happen and for a lot of things to get tackled simultaneously, and to distribute the workload.

I dunno. Just a thought that crossed my mind.

That's a lot to take in. For a second there I thought Ash was a female Edward Elric, lol.

The color studies look really good. Kind of reminds me of the watercolor effect in Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword when things are far away.

I'm not going to get over the name "nyanpire". That's going to come up in an Ecchiworld story, I know it...

To use spoilers, you'll get the word spoiler in brackets. You can say something like (spoiler=Warning: Blood) (in brackets instead of parentheses, of course) in the first one, and then insert the IMG function inside it.

Select the "Insert Quote" feature on this post to see how this works!

I'm thinking somewhere in between. You do have that big-eyes-little-nose-little-mouth look from like, 90s to early 2000s anime. It's not a bad style. Sometimes it just lends itself to derpiness is all.
