Thank you watchers from Gneiss-Chert and Justin! by Gneiss-chert Thank you watchers from Gneiss-Chert and Justin! by Gneiss-chert
YES that is me in cartoon form getting a super awesome piggyback ride from ma boy Justin! XD I love him so! :iconsweethugplz:
My first time drawing myself! I saw DCLeadboot do a picture of him self with his character, and then MasqueradeOfTheNight drew her self so I said heck, I got to do that!!!

I haven't thanked you all in quite some time! Last time I had 50 watchers, now I have an amazing 123 and 7,723 page views! This is long over due! 
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Your interest and support in the novels characters touches us deeply! Without you all I would have little reason to publish! 
Please watch my sister if you haven't yet for more SDS characters!! :iconbloodangel28:

I want you all to know that I am sorry if I have been slow to look at your works and leave comments like I did in the beginning.  Right now I am swamped with the book and marketing projects! Once final editing is done, I will attempt to go back and look at what I have missed! I want you to know that I do care about you all!   :hug:

Haha yes Justin does get this future stuff! But he likes it!
It is I think I got it! They have you do all this wacky linking and verifying when you have a business page tied to a youtube account...hopefully it will work this time!!! 
At least I found a way to record!!! :la:

I put down a bit of color where shadows would be then use a blur tool called finger tip in MS 5.  It pulls the paint and blends it a bit.  Once I got the dark going the way I want, and looks right.  I pull the original medium tone back in the opposite direction.  This creates an instant fold look, all I have to do is go back and add highlights to the ridges.  Sometimes I have to manipulate it a few times to get a look I like, and other times it surprises me and I keep it.
After I had the blues down I just shaded the gold parts to match and used my favorite tool, glow dodge to make it shine on the highlights.

Raptor La Icon I was very happy with the folds myself!!!
OO thanks that is achieved by going typical anime zigzag and then going over them with glow dodge! I love glow dodge sooo much!
XD I love to wear blue! I wanted to do a sky but I though that would be to much blue! Green, sure why not, for earth and goes with my eyes.
Thank you very much for all your support and comments!

I would love a piggy back ride! Wahoo!  

Hey, when you were a kid did you ever play knights on horseback where two piggyback riders hit each other with pillows.  The rider and "horse" that fall down first are the losers.  It is totally fun!  Misty had three brothers and a sister and two cousins that lived in his household.  All those boys!  Knights on horseback was a great game!  Tend to be rough on the furniture!

All right Milady!

Oh my uncles would let us play pretend horse back but I never played knights with pillows!!! That does sound fun!
LOL i bet it was rough on the furniture!

The boys would swing the pillows until the pillows got all jammed down at one end of the pillow case like a dense ball.  The would swing them like big flails and beat on each other until one team fell down.  It was pretty violent but really, really fun!  Bloody noses and bruises were not reported to parents unless you were a big sissy!  What knight worth his salt complains about that?  The little brother got the worst of it but they didn't hit him as hard, usually.  Poor little guy!  The sister was the toughest actually.  She was scrappy!  Once the oldest sibling shattered the glass shade on the overhead light and the light bulbs sending glass shards in every direction!  There were holes in the walls of the bedroom drywall from falling knights getting unhorsed.  Having six boys in one household was definitely rough on the house!
