Hello all, lots of drawing happening here. I'll be sketching faces and anatomy in the background, and painting pretty concept art to keep you all happy (well, my clients at least!) I'll try to get a few personal pieces done, but bear with me if they are few and far between. But for those who are glaring at me right now (or at least at this journal, which is a little silly, if you think about it), I will be creating something in a different way.
A big thank you to my epic girlfriend, my watchers, all my friends, and all the support everyone gives me. I never appreciate it enough, so here's a little tribute to the best of you!

www.indiegogo.com/projects/ang… My novel fund is up, please take a look. Updates coming soon. It's low fantasy, it's dark, and it's disturbing. Emotions run high throughout, far more than in any fantasy book I've read. The gritty realism and the pain will hopefully make the good parts so much better. There is hope, there is forgiveness, and even the worst of us have a chance to start again. If we truly want to.

I'll also be creating artwork for the story, so that will lessen the amount of stuff I upload too, my apologies. Save up some spare nickels and dimes over the next few weeks, and help me get this published! =) What else can I offer with my book? Any ideas? I'd love to give my supporters the most, and the best!

What is "Low" fantasy?

Good luck with the book.

Low fantasy often has less or no magic, getting as close to a real-world setting as possible (in this case more of a medieval setting). High fantasy (Lord of the Rings) has magic, forces, and all that. :)

Thanks!

So Neverwhen by Neil Gaiman is low or high fantasy?
Its in a modern setting and there was some magic.
I don't remember how much.
Definitely a book I would read again.

Thanks for explaining.

Thanks for the article.

So Harry potter/Neverwhen are high fantasy because it fits "world within a world".
This is hidden from normal people.

The shadowrun series is low fantasy because everyone
knows about magic and Orcs, dwarfs and other creatures.

Its nice to see you running fast thought your drawing path again Steven, I am not really into writing, specially since my english is far from good and maybe just enough to survive, but this sounds interesting, would you like to talk about the project with me ?

Also... thanks for the feature I really appreciate it

I'm featured! *gasp* :faint:

Seriously, I didn't expect to see myself in there. Glad I've helped! (: I've always wanted to write something too, and perhaps illustrate it myself. I have passions in so many different things, but for now I'll try to focus on this whole painting scheme. But, I want to make music, write stories, shoot videos, take photos etc. I just want to shape up my own world and stuff. x'D The best way to do that, would be to write, but.. well, I'll think about that in the future.

AND, I would donate, but I'm totally broke. People don't commission stuff from me and I have no other source of income, so yes, I am practically broke. ;_; I wish I had clients. I did get a job offer just now from someone, though, so.. I'm hoping that would turn into something. 0:

Thank you. :) Of course you're featured! I hope that offer works out man. Make sure you get paid, even a little. It makes both you and them appreciate the work and effort you put in. Plus, if they don't want to pay, it means they don't respect you as much as they should. Tough to pass up.. in the end it's up to you man. Best of luck!!
