Sigh.  I've been mulling over this a while.  Not quite sure what to do with it.  Not quite sure what decisions to make.  Not quite sure what directions to take.  All the while, indecision makes you stuck in limbo.

That's normally how I kill things.  Limbo.  Death by inaction.  Death by inability to start because you can see where you want it to go, and it's a lot of work and effort to get there.  Achieving that takes time and patience (and skill).  And that makes goals seem like they're far away.  So you tuck it away in the corner of your mind and let it brew.

You also don't really let anyone else in on the plan because, well, that requires commitment and expectations and goals and results.

But, that's why I'm here in this account right?  My normal self would be mired in self doubt, expectations, and detail overload and cant really do things because, well, it may just not fit in with what I should be doing.

So, let me try something new.  I have goals.  Those I may still hide a little up my sleeves, but I need to begin somewhere.  Something needs to get started.  Somehow it needs to get going.

I just need to remember, everything has a beginning, even if it's just a placeholder:

I'm drawing after a whole week ~ Here's a sneak peek of the thing I'm working on!

Looks like my art style changed... Do you think it looks okay so far? ; u ;

Everything is so late this week :P.
 
#figurefriday  : Misaka Mikoto (Open Challenge).

I don't normally take a full front figure shot, but I guess I do once in a while.  I cant help but think she's asking "why?" in this shot.

Sometime every week feels too short and too long at the same time.  This is one of them (and so will probably the next 2 weeks)

This looks like another high energy romp with Titans.

來自約旦的設計師 Shamekh Al-Bluwi,以非常創意的方式,把他的時裝設計素描,結合著四周的風景,如城市、自然或建築,然後拍攝成一幅幅有趣而獨特的作品,於網上掀起一個熱潮,引起不少人仿效呢。

I have no clue what the cohesive story is, but it certainly has its unique and interesting moments.

+sinI finetrick needs to turn this in to a picture book.
(このストーリーの絵本はいつですか?)

#figurefridaychallenge  : Seven.

Because the seven deadly sins (http://goo.gl/Q4tcVf) would have been a little too obvious.

Seven can be a count, it can signify some type of luck, or it may simply be something that is relevant to the figure, like with Eureka below from Eureka 7.

Time to stretch that imagination and find a relevant story to tell about "Seven" :).

Get creative, have fun, and tag it #figurefridaychallenge !

#figurefridayfavorite  : +Luigi Toscano's Storm Trooper (Open Challenge).

Sometimes the environment adds so much to a story, in non obvious ways.  Here we have the white storm trooper surrounded by darker hues of red and blue.  It ads to the melancholic posture and give us that moment of Storm Trooper contemplation.

What forlorn thought could he be thinking about?

Thanks for sharing!

Pencil shading adds so much character to an illustration.  Reminds me a little of Taiga from Toradora!.

I'll be posting mostly about animemanga or figures.  There may be some deviations from that from time to time, but those will be the primary things I'll be posting about.

I circle many, but I usually follow just a handful of folks who post good content (as shown in my "People" section).  The others are in muted topic circles that I frequent once in a while to see what's new.

So if I don't happen to see a post you made that you think would interest me, feel free to mention me :).

Quick Links:

Communities:
I'm trying out a few communities to help gather my interests into one spot.  Feel free to join and contribute to them!

Figure Friday (weekly): #figurefriday
Join us every Friday to share your photos of your figures!  Just upload your pictures and share them to the Figure Photography community and/or tag with #figurefriday:

Figure Friday Challenge (weekly): #figurefridaychallenge
A weekly challenge to offer some themes to take pictures around.  Challenges like silhouettes, shadows, footwear, weapons and so on (notifications available here, suggestions gathered via the #figurefridaychallengerequest tag).

Be creative and have fun!

Figure Photos (any time): #figurephotos
This is a tag we're encouraging people to use whenever they post pictures of their figures on Google+.  It should help us find each other and create a little community of figure photographers.

Some of my contributions:

Hashtags:
These are some of the hashtags I like to take part in.  Feel free to join in and participate!

Favorite Posts:
I don't keep a blog (yet?) so this is usually where I dump stuff.  If you want to get a feel for who I am, some of these will probably do the trick.

Topics:
Interpretations and Reviews:

Best Anime For#bestanimefor
Just a collection asking folks to name some interesting anime that fits the posted topic.

If I enjoyed...#sharethejoy
A poor man's recommendation engine to solicit some similar anime from the community.  Perhaps you'll find them interesting to.  So, if you enjoyed:

Exemplary Anime Archetype: #exemplaryanimearchetype
Share with us your considerations for various exemplary archetypes.

Share it Forward: #shareitforward
A small experiment in creating shares and ripples.  The concept is to try to get people to reshare and add their own commentary to a post.  Hopefully the reshare will result in more people seeing the content and more people willing to share.  An social experiment of sorts.  Here's the list of current topics, feel free to share any one of them as you like.
