Off you go.. ;)
Okay so I haven’t done art work like this in 9 years and I have to say I miss it. I used to do large scale sketches; sometimes I would do 10 in a month. When I was in High School I took sketching/life drawing classes. Now my style can be a little “Dark” according to my family and past teachers, but I’ve always loved it. My second year taking the class I ran into the art teacher from hell. Not only did she fail me on ANYTHING I turned in, even extra credit, she would take things I was working on in class hold it up high and tell the class “This is how you do it the wrong way.” I turned her in countless of times, and my mother set up meetings with the school to deal with her, they did nothing. I ended up switching to a study hall class to get out of her class, but she ended up getting the final blow that year when I went, with my mother and school adviser, after I finished switching classes (Mind you it took about four days for me to switch to my next class) We had gone down there to pick up my portfolio and art supplies. She smiled as she told me she tossed it in the trash because I was a waste of art talent and the trash is where my stuff belonged. The school did nothing about this, and yes I left in tears; my mother also cussed her out and told her the only waste was her.
I stopped doing art for a long time after that, only doing a few things not even trying to make something. Even now I’m scared to do art like I once did for fear of something like that ever happening again. Two years ago I entered into an art charity; my mother’s doing to try and get me back to doing art. I’m now a well respected artist in my city and have raised over $25,000 in the last two years for the charity with my art.
There are always going to be people out there that tell you you’re not good enough, or you are just a waste. They will never be right. Don’t give up and toss things to the side, keep it up and show them that the only waste is your time having to hear their words.
I’m working on three cosplays all at the same time. I’ve got the red one, which I’m still not telling anyone what it is yet, I have Seth from Trinity Blood, and Hanji from SNK; my wig parts will be here any day and I can start styling it~!!
Everything for Seth’s weapon from Trinity Blood is now drafted up to the proper size, for me. Now I need to start getting supplies and start building~
Drafting up the last few things for one of my Trinity Blood cosplays.

So much red fabric for this cosplay~
I still need to add all the small braids and beads to the wig but the hard part of styling it is finished. Once all the braids and beads are in it I’ll spray everything down and clean up any stray pieces of the wig that is sticking out.
Once more of the cosplay is finished I’ll post as to what it is.
