What?! if anyone has NO right to self-deprecation is YOU, Keffria! Your art rocks!
Mine's adequate to my needs, but lately with the translation I've gotten the chance to see old art and can't say I really approve of it. Then I look to my current art and notice some things are still wrong!!!
And yes, my main deviation was my inability to get a lot closer to Ms. Takahashi's art; so I decided to inject some of the old (non-manga) style, specially since cartoonish (as in, Tom & Jerry) poses are easier to me than 100% anatomically correct ones.
Of course, then I read Eiichiro Oda, the author of One Piece, did exactly the same with his work (add Tom & Jerry cartoonesque tones), and so I moved away from that.
No worries, though. I calculate that 2050 I'll be drawing like Soap or you or War. Of course, the world as we know it is gonna end in 2012, but hey, I don't see that as a reason to stop.
Faith is what credulity becomes when it finally achieves escape velocity from the constraints of terrestrial discourse- reasonableness, internal coherence, civility, and candor. Thus, the men who commited the atrocities of September 11 were neither cowards nor lunatics of any sort, but Men of Faith- perfect faith- and this, it must finally be acknowleged, is a terrible thing to be.
