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 raqonteur.deviantart.com/journ… my introductory journal entry.
Interests
Having just read DA's new spam members for comments plan, I'm not impressed.  However, the theme behind it isn't a bad one.  We all do need to comment more to reinforce the bonds of our community.

That's why I thought I might try a couple of ideas of my own;
LEAVE A COMMENT DAY is simply that.
Pick one day of the year, let's say March 1st, for instance (plenty of time to advertise then). And encourage everyone to leave at least one comment on that day.  Make a celebration of it.  Feature one comment from that day (and a deviation or collection from the commenter) for the rest of that month.  If enough people participate in this way then it could grow and grow.  And hopefully the habit of commenting will stick.

The other idea is to add a little tag-line to your own comments saying something like 'I enjoyed commenting on your piece.  Pass-this-along.  Comment on someone else's art today'.
A simple piece of encouragement to motivate people.

If you're interested, you could post this journal or something similar of your own, on your own page.  Go on, let's try to be community spirited for a change :P


What do you think?
Would you join in this?
Do you have any other ideas like this?

Go on, leave a comment :P

round four IMHO: i love how anna is a dancer. her 'good girl gone bad' phase really suits the fame life style she had as it seems many young stars seem to have a falling out at some point these days. i would love to see annas bond with her daughter though.

Thank you.

Hmmm... 5 word limit on the reply is challenging...

Anna.
Daughter. 
Excalibur. 
Knights. 
Demons.

Making everything fit is a problem.

Nope still couldn't hold to 5 words :p

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!
