Artist Comment

Hello! This is the work that I was asked to do by Charaznableamurorei to the Tips for Doujinshi Artists Rewriting Project.

I was supposed to make a guy ( this case, Mikhail) trying to put a thread (thread!) into a needle!
But he can't, and has already been there for hours...
that's the work of a doujin artist! Never give up!

    Good representation! I like the color shade.

    Ahah, he's sooo going crazy. The whole expression is hilarious. Though i wonder why he's unsuccesful, cause the hole in the needle is pretty big (he's clumsy ?). Looks like he's on amphetamines :). The puzzle tshirt is nice too.

    Ha! XD It's just like me when I'm trying to do that! (Although, after 10 minutes, I just give it to my mom to do it for me!)

    Love his expression! (Wonder if I look like that when I'm doing that too...? XD)

    I only noticed this after seeing you draw Mikhail in lots of different kinds of poses and scenes: he's the only one you always, always draw with gloves on, right? I smell mystery (and a story) here... XD

    *claps!* Thanks, Wapy-san! I feel your rendition of the idea I asked you to draw is much, much funnier and more "realistic", more in tune with Mikhail's 'character', so great job there! Thanks also for taking the time to color your doujin! This is really lovely decoration for the "Tips" thread project! ^_^

    Oh, but I have to ask, for the "doujin banner" version: what do you think, is it best that we retain the whole doujin? I mean, not crop it or loop off some parts and then just a smaller-sized version would be the banner for the "Tips" thread? Or.... crop the doujin, focusing on the needle/thread and Mikhail? Then, just some words on the banner like "Having trouble with drawing?" or something more creative/nifty? I'll try to ask firelfy and ephie 'bout what words/sentence/question is apt for the banner! But if you still have the time, please drop me a line about what you feel is best, ne? ^^^ For sure-ness, Wapy-san gets all the credit for all the "hard work" for "Hard Work"!

    I'm just wondering about the white border you put there... it looks kinda off/doesn't go well with your doujin... is it because of the MT doujin resolution minimum size, or just one of your lovable-random whims? ^_^

    Thanks again, Wapy, for indulging this hag's whims (*points to self*), and... lol, nya, I don't think Mikhail's on drugs or anything, lol... maybe it's just that he really finds it hard to thread a needle... lol, I'm also having fun reading the comments here! Oh, but I'm thinking of all the saliva he had to expend just to wet the thread... kinda like "yuck", but funny, lol... hey Mikhail, read this, ok? Lol, your drawing really sums up/translates in image form what we're doing in the "Tips" thread project, right? 'Seems easy enough to compile artists' tips on drawing, but since you guys have your own personal ways of drawing, it's a bit hard, but yup, I hope with hard work and some luck we could finish the project! ^^^ Thanks so much again, Wapy!
