Original Character or Fan Character Story - Literature Commission
This is a story featuring either your original character or a brand new character.  The more details you provide of what you want, the closer it will be to your vision.  You can provide me with a complete plot or just a title or theme, or anything in between.
This type of work involves a lot of feedback and communication (questions :P) to keep the details right (I can't just guess the name of your first love for example :P)

Who am I?
Well if you're really interested you can read this… my introductory journal entry.
I've been in a bit of an artistic funk for the last month or so.  Combined with Halloween, Guy Fawkes, and two birthdays in quick succession, it's the reason you haven't seen much activity from me.

I'm trying to jump start the creative processes in my brain again.  I know I owe some people things (including a commission) so hopefully you'll see those soon.  But I'll start with a few random stories to get me in the swing of things first.  After all, I've always thought of myself as a writer first and foremost, so that's what comes most naturally.

First, not obvious achievement that I like to congratulate you on, is completing all OC-training tasks so far! You was also a nice art-trade partner. Task “Enjoyment” was great fun.

You have enrolled for this third round of OC-training with a picture colored with pencils. Then you started to using copic markers and tasks submissions have vibrant hues. For a genre you exploring it is a plus.

Lettering in third chapter page ("Alycia Anger") gets better. In addition using ink to enhance outline seems to be more efficient technique for a comic than fine but laborious pure pencil drawings (at least I guess it is so).

You told on Sep 8, 2015 that the story and characters were growing almost organically, especially since Alycia joined OC-training. So I wish you great joy while drawing new pages. Yeah, felicitations!

Raqonteur Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Its not polite to ignore people :p
Thank you for taking the time to personally invite me but I must decline at the moment.  

I found your group when tracking back someone who had favourited or commented on one of my pieces.  But I simply don't have the free time to devote to another group properly.

Good luck with your group though.
