I started to love drawing in the 1st grade where I made a friend who also loved to draw. He's a far more successful artist (and skilled for that matter) than I am. Drawing and arting is what I do. I used to sing in the choir in church as a bass and in college I sang in the gospel choir as a tenor. In my teens I had a Christian rap group. I got pretty skilled singing and performing in front of people and I even do well at public speaking but seriously I'm an artist. My brother is a true singer, singing in plays and making actual CD albums. The other member of my rap group let me know that I wasn't very good and should just stop and I had and have no interest in being a preacher.
So my friend a singer (one of my brother's friends actually a former member of his singing group.)suddenly draws a picture he copied from somewhere and asks for my opinion on it. I tried to ignore it as soon as I saw it hoping that I wouldn't be asked again because my brother was the one who initially pointed it out to me but to no avail I was asked directly by the guy himself and I had to answer. Like most people I have 2 sides. One guy who wants to be the jakass and say what I'm really thinking and the "adult" who knows how to speak using diplomacy and care. I decided to be a bit of both and I wrote this response after a huge sigh
 "You seem to have a nice delicate touch with an unusual corresponding confident stroke. The work looks also much cleaner than any of my prolonged pencil works which is a plus. The fact that you enjoyed drawing it and the emotion you were feeling while recreating also comes through. There is some great work done on that bottom lip. Very good attention to the detail there. I'm not going to go into any critique. If you had fun, then that's what counts."
He proceeded to tell me how little he worked on it and he's like I haven't drawn anything in 9 years! and I'm just rolling my eyes like, "I know! I'm an artist! I can SEE it!!!" Which made me think back to my college days for drawing class I had an assignment that I spent 6 hours on that I thought looked wonderful until I got to class and saw what everyone else had done that spent 12 or more hours on.
Then I thought maybe I should make a video of me singing and force him to give ME feedback! I was only ever good enough to sing in the background and I haven't done that in years. This guy just put out his own album. I wonder what he would do? The only problem is in that scenario, I still take the most damage. LOL Anyway that bothered me enough to vent. He doesn't have a dA account and I think other artists have been through this and will understand.

Gilead War Machine Halloween Costume by hulkdaddyg
Gilead War Machine Halloween Costume
Now we know who Gilead decided to dress as for Halloween. The level of costume detail I felt was superior to what everyone had suggested. I found it odd to just dress Gilead as a larger Black guy for someone like Cage who is incidentally only six inches shorter than him and would probably not differ him at all from the original. I do tend to draw people on the large side in the first place.

Hello there! How are you doing? :D

Was wondering, I've been working over one of my OCs lately. I was wondering if you might be up to talk about my OC, see what you think of the changes I've made with his backstory and personality and such :)
