Anonymous asked: hiii so no offense but is rem supposed to be vash's mom or his wife or what?

No offense taken! I’m open to all questions. 

Rem is his mom. It would be kinda gross if she was his wife, for more reasons than the incredibly obvious. You’ll see what I mean eventually. 

He takes care of those kids, who are all orphans, and Rem helps him. Essentially they share a career and live together still, because Vash is a big momma’s boy/total loser.

lilmisslobo asked: This looks amazing! I didn't know you did comics! (Well, I did, but I never really found it... UNTIL TODAY) 8D

Aaaah, thanks! 8D I could have sworn that I told you though…. @_@ am I just forgetting who I’ve talked to about it? I think I am, haha.

I’d been planning to do comics for a long time, but it was only recently that I started working on one, with generous help from friends with more experience. I’m glad you’re liking it so far~ hopefully I can make it even better as I keep practicing!

celesma replied to your post: Alright, page 3 done! 8D Hooray! …

Whoa, this looks awesome! I love seeing the cast as kids. :D

Ah, thank you! 8D You’ll see them a lot from here on out. 

Alright, page 3 done! 8D Hooray! 
This took WAY longer than I thought. It was a complicated time for me. My co-writer/co-editor has been busy, I’ve been dealing with the possibility of depression, job hunting, cancer relays— so busy! But I got it done. I think I’m gonna eschew the self-imposed deadlines and just keep postings to Saturdays at 4. I’ll keep you guys updated.

I was a half hour late to figure drawing, so I’m doing plein air painting instead on campus.
30 minutes with watercolors. I think it turned out okay.

Quickest way to improvement? Practice. It’s a simple bit of advice that rings with absolute truth. Articles, tips, mentors, and study will never get you as far as rolling up your sleeves and getting down to work, be it animation or any other skill. Today we’ve compiled a list of exercises, like animation push-ups, that will get your art skills buff and toned.
Maybe you still need convinced of how important the “Art of Doing” is? Look no further than the early days of animation, especially at the Disney studio. Here were a group of animators (before being an animator was even a thing) who HAD no books to read, or websites to visit, or even experienced animators to ask. They learned via the age old art of hands-on training, experimenting and discovering as they went. And some would argue they created some of the greatest animation to ever be seen. Masterpieces like the dwarfs dancing in Snow White or the terror of the Monstro scene in Pinocchio. So be like them! Get out there and do animation!

Some of these exercises you may have done or seen before; some maybe not. Consider doing each of them, even if you did once previously, because returning to an old exercise to see how much you’ve progressed is a very valuable experience.
Level 1 Exercises
(Do not discount their simplicity! Here you have the principals of animation, which all other animation is built on. They are worth your time and effort.)
Ball Bouncing in place, no decay (loop)
Ball Bouncing across the screen
Brick falling from a shelf onto the ground
Simple character head turn
Character head turn with anticipation
Character blinking
Character thinking [tougher than it sounds!]
Flour Sack waving (loop)
Flour Sack jumping
Flour Sack falling (loop or hitting the ground)
Flour Sack kicking a ball
Level 2 Exercises
Change in Character emotion (happy to sad, sad to angry, etc.)
Character jumping over a gap
Standing up (from a chair)
Walk Cycle [oldie but goodie!]
Character on a pogo stick (loop)
Laughing
Sneezing
Reaching for an object on a shelf overhead
Quick motion smear/blur
Taking a deep breath [also tougher than it sounds!]
A tree falling
Character being hit by something simple (ball, brick, book)
Run Cycle
Level 3 Exercises
Close up of open hand closing into fist
Close up of hand picking up a small object
Character lifting a heavy object (with purpose!)
Overlapping action (puffy hair, floppy ears, tail)
Character painting
Hammering a nail
Stirring a soup pot and tasting from a spoon
Character blowing up a balloon
Character juggling (loop)
Scared character peering around a corner
Zipping up a jacket
Licking and sealing an envelope
Standing up (from the ground)
Pressing an elevator button and waiting for it
Starting to say something but unsure of how
Level 4 Exercises
Character eating a cupcake
Object falling into a body of water
Two characters playing tug-of-war
Character dealing a deck of cards out
The full process of brushing one’s teeth
A single piece of paper dropping through the air
Run across screen with change in direction
Sleeping character startled by alarm then returning to sleepy state
Opening a cupboard and removing something inside
Putting on a pair of pants
Opening the “world’s best gift” and reacting
Any of the above exercises using a very heavy character/object next to a very light character/object. Enhance the differences the weight change makes!
Things to keep in mind:
Reading these exercises will do as much for you as reading about push-ups would do for your physical muscles: NOTHING. If you want the benefit, you must animate them. Take a deep breath and just do it.
Do not forget the famous words of Ollie Johnston: “You’re not supposed to animate drawings [3D models]. You’re supposed to animate feelings.” If a character isn’t thinking, they aren’t alive, and the animation has failed.
Keep it simple! There is no reason to over complicate any of these exercises. Going back to push-ups, would push-ups be harder if while doing them you also recited the Gettysburg Address? Yes. Would they be any more beneficial? No. Keep things nice and simple and clear.
Do your best. There is no reason to do these exercises poorly. Give it your all. You don’t have to show anyone, these are for you. You owe it to yourself to try your very best. Something not quite right? Take the time to fix it.
As always, have fun. Push ups are not fun. Animation is supposed to be. Be joyful in your work!
Have any questions about the exercises above? Leave a comment below and we’ll answer them the best we can! Someone else may be wondering the exact same thing, so you’ll help them too. Likewise if someone is looking for possible exercises, why not share a link to these and give them a hand?

So instead of doing comic work like I should be I did this
In my defense I spent all of yesterday away from the computer and so random stuff was all i could draw.
Blame Evan for getting me into sonic again! XD She helped me with this like the awesome friend she is. I’m still terrible with sonic legs and I only just got what she meant by “Sonic is an inverted bean” with this. I feel like my mind has been blown.

Comic might be posted late.

I got a minor but frightening injury at a theme park and lost a day to work on it. I’ll still try to keep to my deadline, but if I miss, this will be why.

It goes without saying, but view in high-res please! 

I managed to do it! I made my deadline! I hope I can keep this up. 

Anyway, if you have any questions, feel free to ask! 

Writing by me and Jade-Draws, editing also by Jade-Draws and I. Art by me!

Well, I mentioned my Donut Day Surprise, and while it’s a day late… here it is! This is only the beginning of course, my surprise was the unveiling of a fancomic! :D 
Welcome to the beginning of Trigun: Eden. I’ll be trying my best to have an update every Saturday at 4pm. Keyword being try, obviously. I’m a busy person and this is my very first attempt at a comic, so expect some schedule slip. 
…But then again, this is also a webcomic, so you probably expected that. 
A cover will be up whenever I can manage to design and finish one. Please tag to trigun: eden. I hope you all enjoy! ^_^ 
((Edit: my co-author is Domofudgie/Jade-Draws, and she’s also an editor. I can’t believe I forgot to give credit to her! Anyway, she’s super cool, go follow Jade-Draws. Just, just do the thing. Trust me.))

It’s been taking a while… of course, I expected that. But I’ll try my best to have a good amount ready for then. :D 

So, I’ll be slow to reply… sorry! Hopefully what I have in mind will make up for it.))

Hey everybody! I haven’t announced it here, so I better do it now, haha. I have something planned for Donut Day! So for anyone into trigun, look to my art blog on that day for a surprise! Hopefully it’ll be worth your while!
