Well uh... Trump won. That's.... indescribably depressing.
But I'm still trying to post things! or at least give some signs that i'm active again. sorta.
So uh... there's that.
Anyway, there's no real particular occasion but it's not like anything else comes to mind, so i want to take this moment to give a LONG overdue shoutout, to someone who's praises i honestly haven't sung enough. this one might get a little lengthy. But who is the lucky winner that has somehow made it over my increasingly high bar?
Now i'm sure if you've heard of a nobody like me, you've probably come across his art on more than one occasion, There's been some Pokemon, some Shantae, some ever so attractive OCs, and even random bits here and there, All at decent-to-high quality. If you haven't somehow, i implore you, beseech you, for your own benefit you have to take a look. Eye candy art and even some decent animations in more recent times.
In fact, that's why this shoutout is just so far overdue, This was already an amazing artist when i first found the profile, but unlike most of the people i've been watching on dA for a long time, Luis has kept on improving over and over again on several levels, taking high quality to even higher quality, seemingly mastering multiple art styles, and apparently even branching into animation work. It's kinda criminal he's not making money all things considered.
But beyond simply being an impressive artist that's improved to being an even more impossibly impressive artist, I think Luis stands out for yet another reason on top of that. He's surprisingly good at being inspirational. This is someone who almost even seems to enjoy talking about his improvement, sharing insight on how characters came to be, how a drawing or animation came to life, and what kind of thoughts lead to the quality he puts out routinely, Some people might not care but it's oddly helpful. The crazy part is, despite having several popular OCs and multiple webcomic ideas among other things, He's still going, still coming up with new characters, new concepts, new fanart, It's been several years now and he just keeps going with seemingly no end in sight, branching out even! To be honest, i kinda wonder what kind of job he has that both funds this and gives him so much time. Anyway, If you're struggling, maybe go look through his gallery, you might find some words that really help here and there.
But seriously, when's a truly dedicated comic for the Izanna girls happening? I mean no pressure or anything, technically there's no need, I'm just saying, it's on the list of things i'd kinda like to see if you thought you were up for it.
....right under Ego Trigger. Looking at you Matsu, even though i'm fairly sure you don't even know i exist. But that's for another journal shoutout. One that's probably even more laughably futile than this one.
Well I'd like to try to keep shoutouts short, and i'm out of words, so i guess i'll cut it here and post. Maybe i should shoutout some of the other writers around here too? Well, that'd require me to know any....
