Patreon Exclusive Content - Yoruichi
This is my first piece done almost exclusively in Manga Studio 5, with touching up done in Photoshop Elements. It is also my first time trying out a new way of shading and highlighting, which, I hope, gives better, smoother results.

An exclusive for those of you who support me on Patreon. Those who pledge $8+ will be able to get a fullbody version of this piece, and in high resolution.

If you want to support me and my works, then please, check me out on Patreon!

Again, I've been absent quite a bit as of late. And for a couple reasons.

One is that, several months ago, I seriously injured my left shoulder. As a result, I had to stop going to the gym for a while. Recently, it's recovered, and so last Monday, I decided it was time to start working out again. Only I wound up overdoing it somewhat, and not only wound up feeling very tired, but I was also very stiff. As in 'it hurts to move' stiff. So I've been spending some time in bed, recovering and getting back in gear.

Secondly, I've been doing some more work on Manga Studio 5, wrapping up another Patreon bonus pic, as well as experimenting with a new style of shading. You see, when I was working exclusively with Photoshop Elements, I have to come up with all kinds of workarounds to deal with it's limitations as an artistic tool. But now that I have access to the versatility that is Manga Studio 5, those workarounds are not only unnecessary, but they ultimately seem to be impairing the overall quality. So basically, I've been picking up some new tricks for even better art, and that's been taking up a fair share of my time.

And finally, I've got another job lead that I've been looking into. So wish me luck on that front.

I'll keep you updated as I go. But for now, it's time for me to post some stuff. And then...it's back to the heating pad. Ow...

New Year Not Off To A Good Start...

As you can guess by my absence of late, I've been kind of down, as well as busy trying to get my life going again...and failing.

First off, I decided to check out a job opening over at a nearby taxi company. I have a CDL license, the pay looked good, so I figured, "Why not?" But I changed my mind when I looked over the job application form, and discovered that the company in question wanted me to give them my savings and checking account numbers while I was at it. Needless to say, that sent up all kinds of red flags in my mind.

Next, I'm sure all of you are aware that I have a low opinion of Rick Snyder. So you should know that if he and I actually agree on something, the situation must be grim. And that situation is the legalization of marijuana.

Personally, I'm staggered that anybody could ever actually be stupid enough to want to legalize something that is proven as dangerous and addictive as this infamous gateway drug, but then, I suppose if people are stupid enough to put that stuff into their bodies in the first place, then they're stupid enough to want to make it legal.

www.mlive.com/lansing-news/ind…

And as if that's not bad enough, there are politicians and so on who argue that the war on drugs is lost, so we might as well legalize all of them and cut our losses. That's right, they genuinely want to make things like methamphetamines, crack, cocaine, and more all perfectly legal. Never mind the damage such drugs will do to people, the danger to any unborn children being carried by drug abusers, or the fact that this is practically a guarantee that things like violent crimes, lethal overdoses, and more will all skyrocket. Proponents of legalization declare that such a solution will save money, reduce prison populations, and reduce crime.

Me? I'd like to quote Edmund Burke: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

If current drug policies aren't working, then we need to get tougher, not ease down. Prisons overflowing? House arrests for addicts while making it illegal to employ them, and then give drug dealers the death penalty if they won't stop selling their poisons. Drug cartels in Mexico proving too hard to stop? A military solution worked with Osama bin Laden. I think napalming those cartels and their fields of filth would work just as well. Because as far as I'm concerned, giving up on something just because it isn't easy just isn't an option. Especially since legalization of marijuana has already been proven to be a complete disaster in places such as Amsterdam, Portugal, and Colorado.

And on another note...with my new method for cranking out chapters proving to be a success, and given my difficulties in finding work, I think it's time I spent a little time working on some original stories to self-publish. Goodness knows I have plenty of ideas. And I did some checking. I completed a chapter of Lilith's Herald in under four days, and that thing was well over 20,000 words in length. And I've checked some statistics regarding word counts in books. The median average word count for books? About 64,000. That wretched example of abysmal writing and catering to the lowest common denominator known as "Fifty Shades of Grey"? That thing weighs in at 105,000. So by my calculations, I could bam out a good-sized book in about a couple weeks (beta reading and editing would, of course, take longer. As would setting up for self-publication). At the very least, it would be worth investigating.

And on that note, I got curious about some of the word counts of my own stories. And so I checked out this site for the word counts of some famous books. www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03…

Then I checked out some of my story word counts as shown on FFNet. and I was rather startled by something.

"Legacy of the Cursed Mask" has proven to be one of my more popular stories, and the second installment, "The Wolf-Demon Crisis", weighs in at a whopping 551,799 words. So how does that compare to the word count of some other stories? Well, I checked, and it outweighs a very famous novel, whose grand total of words is 544,406.

And just what is the name of this story that "Legacy of the Cursed Mask" outweighs in wordiness?

You might have heard of it. It's called "War and Peace".

Oh, well. I'm getting better at working with Manga Studio 5. So it shouldn't be long before I get some more commission works done. Wish me luck.

He Orion, this is what I think would happen if Link were to fight every main character from InuYasha guys one-on-one.

1. Inuyasha: Since the Tetsusaiga is made from a demonic body part, it would be extremely vulnerable to the awesome power of The Master Sword. If the two blades were to clash, the Master Sword probably would shatter Tetsusaiga. Also, if Link found out about InuYasha's greatest weakness, all he'd have to do is play The Sun's Song on his ocarina over and over until he made in nighttime with a New Moon and turn Inuyasha into a normal human thus giving Link the advantage.

2. Kagome: Unlike Kagome, Link has Fire Arrows, Ice Arrows, and Arrows of Light and he is more accurate than Kagome is with the bow. Not to mention he can ride a swift horse and fire his arrows with great accuracy and precision. So with more forms of magic arrows and better accuracy, if he were to get in an archery fight with Kagome, he'd probably win.

3. Shippo: Young Link's weapons aren't toys unlike Shippo's. Not even his slingshot is a toy, even though children play with them. Shippo's weapons are big and flashy, and Link is a master of evading large things. And Shippo couldn't hide with a disguise or a transformation as he usually does because Link's Lens of Truth would be able to see through Shippo's deception. Also Link's bombs pack more of a punch than Shippo's do.

4. Miroku: Miroku's paper sutras can't hurt Link, and no one can out melee fight Link with primitive weapons so his staffmanship would be useless. Not even the Wind Tunnel would work because all Link would have to do is strap on his heavy Iron Boots to hold and anchor him down, walk over to Miroku's outstretched hand, and chop it clean off. Or he could hurl his boomerang at Miroku's wrist and chop it clean off. Also Link's Nayru's Love Barrier not only protects Link, but heals him from damage as well.

5. Sango: Link has more tools and weapons than Sango has. He has two indestructible swords, a big hammer, bombs that can run on their own power (bombchu), and his Hookshot is spring-loaded meaning it can come back to him freely unlike Sango's Kasarigama. Not to mention it can grab and latch onto things. Now Sango's boomerang is bigger and does more damage than Link's boomerang does, but even that can play to Link's advantage. Sango's boomerang is big and heavy and weighs her down giving Link a major speed advantage. Also, as I mentioned before, Link is an expert at dodging large things.

Bottom line: If Link fought all five main characters one-on-one, he'd probably win.

What do you think?
