Wow. Its been so long...
Hey, I am (was) "elvish-samaurai2004" at one point.
I first came here around february 2004, but I rarely got back to this place.

I am not nor e'er was very well known, but to all at TaCO, thank you.
Memories (ys?) can't be bought or sold, and you gave me some good ones.

Not to say I'm quitting by any means.
Just letting the board know I didn't fall into artistic death.
jakusama 2008/10/4 - 22:45:39
I remember you! Hihi! Welcome back! (Sort of.) I'm glad to see from you again, even if you're not drawing too frequently. I hope you continue drawing and posting, even if it's only once in a while, that's something. :) I still like your ability to draw eyes, that always impressed me before. So, welcome back! Hope you hang around. :)
winds-of-fate 2008/10/6 - 0:23:43
Thank you. It is good to be remembered. ^^
If I'm the window to eyes, and eyes are the window to the soul, am I a one-way mirror? A wall? A door?

Hard to say. Heh.
To be honest, it is not that I have drawn less, but that I have written more. The somewhat sudden (this year) impromptu switch of passions has made me resolve to work with my skills in writing over drawing.

What initially drove me to draw was the desire to look professional in my work. What drives me now is mere hobby. And since both are artistic hobbies, and I was naturally better at Writing somehow...It is just more convenient and amusing.

Why I still draw, I can't quite say.
Perhaps that song "the first cut is the deepest" applies, even to hobbies...
mika 2008/10/6 - 12:19:36
I remember you too....was quite a while back.

Another face, another voice.
Another clone with no choice.
Another burden on the state.
Another victim we all hate.

Another bloody social toy.
Another soul to destroy.
Another girl to degradate.
Another boy to instigate.
Join the line there's a queue, take a number then go through.
Pick your weapon, practice well, then send the bastards back to Hell.

russianruler 2008/10/4 - 11:40:38
well said

jakusama 2008/10/4 - 22:42:39
Oh God, Mika. Yay. Another piece by you, but wow. Again, wow. Love the eyes, and the shading. I really like how defined her cheekbones seem to be. The lips are impeccable, but I'm always a sucker for eyes. And I just really, really, really love the eyes. The tear streaks are a nice touch to the sorrowful look to the eyes. Is the poem yours? Or lyrics from a song? I'm not familiar with it, if it's yours, it's absolutely fabulous, dear. Excellent work, glad to see you posting again. <3
blumeaniandglove 2008/10/5 - 23:30:41
Mika mika!

eh ill continue this later.... i think its self explanatory what it is
jakusama 2008/9/30 - 23:53:38
Cool! The playing with the lighting is neat, as usual. I really like how there are traces of whisps of light in the foreground, and the way the red light and blue light play off the contours is really cool. Really cool.
russianruler 2008/10/1 - 13:47:19
russianruler 2008/10/1 - 17:6:29

jakusama 2008/9/27 - 19:7:47
Cool! I like the shading (if it can be called that) and the bubbles are really neat.

jakusama 2008/9/24 - 10:3:24
Dude. I LOVE the jean texture, and the way it fades off. Killer post, and the hair looks so soft and shiny. Excellent shading.

jakusama 2008/9/24 - 10:4:35
Awww, I like it! I like the black and white with the tints of pink being the only color. it really brings out the idea of the image. Very cute!
blumeaniandglove 2008/10/7 - 22:54:8

i just decided to upload something before i leave for Catalina on monday^^
yay :D

um, c&&c is greatly encouraged,
especially on hair and shading :\
golden 2008/9/21 - 1:52:11
It's very cute!
When it comes to shading, you might want to try shading with different colors instead of only a darker shade of the base color. Try experimenting with colors. I know it could feel weird applying purple and yellow to skin, but a variation could bring out depth in a picture (seriously need to practice on that myself xD). Hope that was of some help ^^
jakusama 2008/9/24 - 10:8:22
Going off of what golden said, when I shade skin, I will use the watercolor tool with a blueish color and blend it in. If you don't feel safe putting it right on, you can make another layer and use more like an airbrush with just blue-tinted skin. Play with it, it's a cool thing to understand. I still play around. I love her expression and the mouth, in particular. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to do that so many times and it never works out. I really dig the hair, too.

elolinon 2008/9/22 - 5:35:34
Woah, the lips looks so realistic! I like how you can see the light flow through her eyelashes on the left side! For even more realism, try using a softer brush when doing darker areas, hair, etc. ^^
jakusama 2008/9/24 - 10:28:47
I really, really like the eyes. And the shiny spot on the lips. The eyelashes are really, really cool too.

I just draw you enterperet
jakusama 2008/9/17 - 19:34:34
Weird. Really cool. I focus and unfocus my eyes and I see something different every time. It's kind of like one of those magic eye things.

jennybets 2008/9/13 - 16:7:0
more practice for me with hair and skin...
blumeaniandglove 2008/9/13 - 22:4:19
pretty :)
I wish my hair did that.
she looks angry though.

artanis 2008/9/13 - 23:29:24
definitely very pretty, i love how wild her hair is, and her lips
jakusama 2008/9/14 - 17:3:20
Wow! I love the skin shading, and the hair is to die for. I love the billowy-ness of it, and the detail to hair strands is really neat. I'm always a big fan of the eyes, so naturally, I like those too. And the blush and the lips. I like the whole dang thing! :D
jennybets 2008/9/14 - 19:58:9
wow. thanks for the awesome comments!!
mika 2008/9/17 - 8:42:42
Great style and wild wild hair....luv it!
elolinon 2008/9/22 - 5:36:20
I like how her hair is all... wirly! :)
p_b 2008/9/30 - 22:44:49

artanis 2008/9/11 - 17:56:31
you'd laugh
if i told you my dream
artanis 2008/9/11 - 18:14:41
and i don't understand
where any of this comes from
i feel like i'm holding my head
dreaming you to let me go
and i don't understand
why i'm not going under
i want you to hold my hand
and not let go
i just want to be inside
for once not looking out
close my eyes
in the middle of the night
and know what it's all about\\
blumeaniandglove 2008/9/13 - 15:38:56
this is gorgeous.

i love those eyes
jennybets 2008/9/14 - 19:59:37
This is so cool. I love that little smile and the swinging necklace/crystal? She actually reminds me of a good friend I had in high school. Looked a lot like her!
artanis 2008/9/15 - 8:43:54
yeah, it's a glass crescent moon inside a silver circle. this picture is chock full of hidden symbolism :] and thanks <3
golden 2008/9/15 - 11:50:25
Definitely lovely :) I love the simpleness.
jakusama 2008/9/16 - 13:59:24
I love the softness of this. The eyes are amazing, and I love the way the picture's set up; where everything is in the image. The white background adds to it. And I'm just plain jealous of your ability to draw eyes, honestly. So pretty...
mika 2008/9/17 - 8:36:2
As a fan of monochromatic art I should like this.......

And I do!

Gorgeous art, gorgeous girl.....what more could you ask for?....:)
artanis 2008/9/22 - 22:30:22
thanks <3
p_b 2008/9/30 - 22:46:43
Aww she's so cute :) I really like your realistic but still cartoony kind of style it's always been some of my favorite stuff to look at
embo 2008/11/15 - 6:40:36

I hadn't drawn in so long, and I really wanted to, but couldn't get inspired. I drew this from my daughter's placemat because it was sitting right here in front of me. Got the ol' drawing juices flowin so I'm happy!
artanis 2008/9/11 - 17:57:13
very cute!! :)
jakusama 2008/9/16 - 14:0:2
Haha! Nice! That looks really good. Like, maybe if you draw for the show or something. Nice job!

jakusama 2008/9/16 - 14:1:47
Woo! This is kind of a neat effect. I love the sketchiness of it, and the way the color sort of bleeds out. It's rather neat.

artanis 2008/9/13 - 9:18:33
hehe, this is kinda weird. i love the lower half of him, it looks like he's a merry dancing skeleton, lol.
jakusama 2008/9/16 - 14:3:35
Wow! I love the glowing effect. It's rather bizarre, but it's kind of appealing in that way. The skeleton at the bottom adds an interesting contrast texture to the shading on the face. Spiffy!
