Only thing I hate about this is that I've read all the chapters and I need more.
@cacao_c Uh. Well, if you were looking for actual yaoi, then you'd pretty much expect sex... But since you say you don't like hentai/sex, you're probably just looking for shounen-ai?
I'd suggest trying out Takarai Rihito and Hinako Takanaga's works.
@Chou's pretty much said everything else I've wanted to comment on but I'd like to just reiterate some things.
^^; I don't get why you can't be a part-time artist and be a full-time office worker.
I know a few people who work in the local comic industry and they can art just fine despite having jobs in advertising agencies. I mean, if you really, really love something then even though you have a "day job", you can still make time for art-ing (and possibly make profit out of it too).
@Kyukanii I do understand that some people, especially those who have studied art, want to get a job as an illustrator/graphic artist/what have you, but frankly speaking the argument that "I would rather have a low-income job then do any other job that is not art related" is something you should probably give time to think about. I'm not gonna go lecture anyone about their life choices because that would be conceited of me, but maybe you should consider thinking about what kind of future you would like to have from a more realistic perspective?
I'm certainly not denying that people can make a good living out of a full-time art career. That's entirely possible. Just that, like a lot of others have said, you need to be extremely good at what you do and have a lot of connections. Maybe you could also work as a storyboard artist or graphic designer for ad agencies? It's up to you. Being an artist CAN be a real job. You just need to know what sort of work can give you a decent living.
Just my two cents.
@TWDeath sai and cs5 :)
I would have worked on this a bit more, but I'll be out of town for a couple of days with little to no internet so o_o;
@terushinozaki That's lovely. :> I love your lines and his expression.
... Holy crap. I don't know how to react.
Probably joining... I think.
This has been mentioned above, but I'd like to rec it again because it's probably one of the best movies I've seen in a while:
The cinematography is excellent and the actors (despite being so young) are pretty good. You have to be a little patient since it starts slow, but the first big "revelation" jolted me awake.
Also, check out: Departures.
I love how simple this movie is and it STILL manages to move you. It doesn't even have to try.
EDIT: I didn't notice Departures had already been recced. OTL Sorry about that.
Some old unfinished work.
