I generally save this folder for the best art I find, including pieces I like from friends. There's a lot of great artists out there who definitely deserve to be recognized. Keep up the good work, everyone!

The use of cool-tone colors in this piece is excellent. They are well-balanced, between the greens of the leaves and distant pine trees...

I love the use of color in this photo. Though the background is solid, the colors on the hummingbird and the branch make up for it. The...

This is overall a great photo! The balance of color here was captured very well: the yellows, blacks, white/off-whites, and browns of t...

Back from Ohio

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 28, 2014, 3:36 PM
Just got back from Stone Lab yesterday afternoon. While I'm still awaiting my final grade in evolution class, I'm glad to say the REU has ended on a high note. If you haven't already, check out the blog I posted and see a whole crap load of pretty bird pictures!! They're so cool-looking up close :)

I may do one final post this week, but that's just about it. The best part is, I've not only gotten word of a Stone Lab connection over at Cornell University (#1 on my grad school list right now)but I've also finished a research presentation and a research report, both of which I can build upon with presentation and journal article publishing skills to cap off my senior year starting this fall.

As far as 'Clans' goes, expect the next pages to come sometime this week. But be warned-- they may be hard to view for all of us, myself included. The next seven pages will probably be the most emotionally taxing pages I have done so far, and I'm still not entirely sure whether they were the right call. I guess we'll see very soon...

And remember, WfC Q & A is still open in the previous journal, so send your questions there. :)

Just over a month to go until a family trip to Florida, and depending on how hectic my grad school search and GRE studying goes, the future activity of 'Clans' may be a little up in the air. The comic will still go on, but it's a matter of when I will be able to get to the next pages. If I'm able to finish the entire comic before the start of grad school, that's the best case scenario I'm shooting for.

Wow, talking about long term goals already, just goes to show how quickly our lives are flying by.

But in any case, it's good to be back home.

You've enspired me! I want to try to make a graphic novel/comic book! I can't believe you did all of what you did! You're amazing! I am already a drawer and a chapter book writer so I hope is easier than I think, but I know it is hard work!

Thank you!! Glad to hear the artistic inspiration is going around!! :D

Yeah, if it's virtually all hand-crafted, it is definitely hard work, but honestly, I like doing this style a lot more than on a digital painter. A few minor touch-ups at most (aside from dialogue in MS Word) is prettymuch the most I ever do on these pages digitally.

Ya I already started and I'm starting to think its impossible to do for me! I am still trying but I think I like writing on a computer better😂! I am still trying to favorite your whole collection of the graphic novil so I can read them all, I can't wait they are soo good!

I've actually noticed that quite a bit with my pages,; if it's easier for you, you can just drag the whole folder to your favorites. It's a lot easier that way, and you'll have all the pages with you as they update so you don't need to drag them anywhere. I have a lot of comics that I follow myself, and it's pretty convenient being able to do that.

Work smart, not hard! ;)

I had another idea relating to griffins, one I think might work out. After a three year long war came to an end a griffin warrior came home to her mate and daughter. Only she has missed so much of her child's life and has a very difficult time adjusting back to regular life, when one no longer has to constantly be on guard.
I think it would be relevant in American society since so many of our soldiers are coming home from the middle east after seeing more than a few bad things; especially for those who had more than one tour of duty. It would also be like soldiers returning from other wars like Vietnam, Korea and from WWII.

Sounds interesting.

I actually think Blaze will have some PTSD issues to deal with himself by the time his story ends. The updates are only going to get more intense for some time.
Tulmur95 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014
I'd imagine they would be. Blaze does have to defeat the creep responsible for untold numbers of dead including his parents. In the end we know he'll be the victor, but at what cost? The conflict has already taken away a portion of himself. He witnessed his parents brutally murdered when he was only a child. Then he saw the villain in her true colors viciously murdering other griffins, which explained how the war never seemed to end. And so far it seems he has to defeat the villain alone, since no one else would believe him. PTSD? I'm be surprised if Blaze doesn't have it already, since he saw what happened to his parents and the villain's ghastly deeds.
Cyrin has been an adventure for readers like myself. It is a story where you really feel for the characters, you can relate to them. Like how love knows no boundaries, Filigree and Ethad are a perfect example. How despite being beaten down and thinking all is for not, you get back up and keep trying.
One of the things I fell in love with about the story is how you can see what is happening, the expressions on the characters, being able to see why they are acting the way they do. Not to mention being able to see the villain at work makes it all the more shocking, it makes you want for the villain to get theirs. I for one am not much of an artist, but I think my art is in the form of words rather than in actual colors and textures. Either way, I owe it to you for being a fan of griffins.
