*sigh* I am not used to dip pens at all.

I started playing with dip pens really early this morning. I've been using a  Kabura pen (sorry, don't know the english name for it) and it seems like I can get more out of a crow quill than the standard flex tip everyone is telling me to use.

I'll admit that there isn't much line variation in a Kabura; but I think it is because if this trait that it is great for a beginner. I don't have to worry about the thickness of my lines and I can just focus on the technique. Besides, if I want to have the line thicker in some places I just go over it again.

If I remember Bakuman, the Kabura was what Mashiro's uncle used for gag-manga. Since there isn't much line variation it doesn't give enough depth to the drawing or something. I think the "real" manga artists used the Kabura for fine details and lines. This is great for me because I love detail. I have the bad habit of starting drawings with detail rather than with an outline and that's why a lot of my drawings are disproportionate.

Anyway, I guess this is me saying "I'm bored" 'cuz I normally don't spend much time with the dip pens. I bought them on a whim when there was a sale and I've been bring them out whenever I'm bored to play around with. Today was the first time I created anything worth keeping with the pens...but I tried really hard. It's now taped to the back of my door AKA the art-section of my wall art.

I really need to get a job...or a social life...or both.

I really don't care.

About the translation you saw. Keep in mind that translators, even the ones working for big companies, still make mistakes. If we want to know what was really said, we go to the original RAWs from Japan, unaltered, and learn how to read and understand it fully.

I just told off someone who made a big FAQ list. Made me really angry. Anyway, I wrote down what I wanted to say in a comment there.


Here it is above. I'm not saying I support or deny what is said, I'm just against the way this person chose to say it. I mean, people are entitled to their own opinion and getting all mad about it and being in your face about things really gives fans a bad name and makes you look really immature.

This is a work of fiction so why are people getting all mad at each other?

Hello! I love Onegai Oboete NeilxFeldt story of yours. When will you update? I've seen it before in fanfiction.net I think. I just want to know what happens to them... because I ship them so hard. >u<

Thank you.

I've been meaning to work on stuff like that, but I've been very busy. Apparently, life and creativity hate each other and are always competing to see which one gets my attention.

I don't like un-inspired stories, so whenever I get the urge/inspiration to write again, I'll post more.

Thanks for the comment and I'm sorry for not giving you a proper answer. I don't know when the next chapter will be out.
