I was drawing today and I realize that maybe portraiture wouldn’t be a bad thing for me to explore.

I’m not very good at action/movement, but I can spend a lot of time on backgrounds and furniture. Portraits never really appealed to me before, but maybe I should rethink the way I think about my own art to my betterment?

IDK. I just don’t feel like I’m very good but I still like to draw and I’d like to improve.

Cosplay Chess At Cosplay America~

Cosplay America is a first-year convention in my state (North Carolina)-

http://www.cosplayamerica.com/

My friend is still looking for participants for Cosplay Chess. This years theme is Anime VS. Video Games. ( You get extra flexibility if your Anime Character has/is in a video game or vice versa!)

http://www.cosplayamerica.com/cosplay-chess-registration

So if your one of the few not going to Dragon*con this weekend and would like to support one of the East Coasts only cosplay-centered convention, we’d love to have you!

Can you please tell me how and why does Haman kill Natalie? I have read this manga but i cant read any japanese and after like chapter 40 something around the chapter waking, the manga is no longer translated and im kinda lost. I have read summaries about the manga but it just says Haman didnt kill her but allowed her to be killed. 

IIRC Haman does NOT kill Natalie. She’s not involved. I found some raw scans years ago and some guy from the Hardliner group that wants another war with the Earth Federation shoots her. No one has translated that far and it can be super-hard to find raw scans; so if Haman is involved somehow she may have overheard the conversation or something and that’s about it. Haman was not well towards the end of the manga.

Keep an eye on Zeonic-republic.net if it still exists. He’s had it translated for a while, but I don’t know if he ever found suitable scans or not.

He’s also got up to volume 10 IIRC. IDK if they are still available on his site, but if they’ve got his watermark they’re his translation.

Relating to a character can be comforting-

Several weeks ago my 17-year-old sister got a bad eye infection from swimming in the local river. No big deal, right?

We kind of laughed it off. Mom & Dad had already taken her to the doctor and we thought she was on the road to recovery. Sadly not so.

They went back to the doctor last week and her eyesight has deteriorated dramatically- She had very good vision before- and now her ears are bothering her too.

The doctors have no idea what’s going on. It could be anything from a hereditary disease triggered by the infection, or it could be a tumor.

Needless to say I’m very worried. My mom has diabetes and isn’t taking anything for it right now and my grandfather has been in the hospital recently as well.

Right now I relate with Kamiki Izumo; one of my favorite Ao no Exorcist characters, harder than ever right now.

All Izumo really wants is for her little sister Tsukumo to be safe.

Its all I really want right now, too.

Its not a big thing, but it helps me deflect some of my worry.
