Hello everyone, here is that art I promised!!
Beach Comber-I drew this a while back and inked it on my trip. I have no idea who he's supposed to be, except that his name was originally Leviticus or Levi for short. I'll post a picture of him colored soon. I think he's my best drawing yet. The funny thing is I usually have a hard time with full bodies, especially men/boys. But this one came naturally. Easy as eating cheesecake, and thats pretty easy for me!!
Medieval-This is a medieval drawing I did focusing on the chain mail, and, with much encouragement, including people's who's names I know not,( I did this in a waiting room and many people saw the drawing.)did something really hard. It took me an estimated three hrs. to do just the mail!! Thank you everyone, I never thought I could do so many little circles!! :P The camera greatly distorted the real image, but trust me, this drawing is pretty awesome. My only complaint is his likeness to someone or something, but I won't mention who/what. Another is the mail, you can't see it in this image!!! Oh, well, I'm trying to hurry with this entry, so I'll put up a new picture later.

doing,maybe you know? Talking, obviously.
I thought he could be telling the team what to do,
But I don't know.
As I've said, I love to draw. My favorite style is Manga, and my favorite things to draw are Exo-Force, Human Bionicle(a variation of Bionicle art in which the characters are human.) Battle for Wesnoth, and Sigma 6, to name a few.
These are some pictures I drew a while back.
Matoro Inika- He's watching the stars and wondering
what secrets and wonders beyond imagination
that they might hold, explaining the twinkling
highlights in his eyes.
This one is zooming in on my signature at the bottom of the picture of Jaller.
Thanks for looking!!

Black is the color of authority and power. It is popular in fashion because it makes people appear thinner. It is also stylish and timeless. Black also implies submission. Priests wear black to signify submission to God. Some fashion experts say a woman wearing black implies submission to men. Black outfits can also be overpowering, or make the wearer seem aloof or evil.
Brides wear white to symbolize innocence and purity. White reflects light and is considered a summer color. White is popular in decorating and in fashion because it is light, neutral, and goes with everything. However, white shows dirt and is therefore more difficult to keep clean than other colors. Doctors and nurses wear white to imply sterility.
The most emotionally intense color, red stimulates a faster heartbeat and breathing. It is also the color of love. Red clothing gets noticed and makes the wearer appear heavier. Since it is an extreme color, red clothing might not help people in negotiations or confrontations. Red cars are popular targets for thieves. In decorating, red is usually used as an accent. Decorators say that red furniture should be perfect since it will attract attention.
The most romantic color, pink, is more tranquilizing. Sports teams sometimes paint the locker rooms used by opposing teams bright pink so their opponents will lose energy.
The color of the sky and the ocean, blue is one of the most popular colors. It causes the opposite reaction as red. Peaceful, tranquil blue causes the body to produce calming chemicals, so it is often used in bedrooms. Blue can also be cold and depressing. Fashion consultants recommend wearing blue to job interviews because it symbolizes loyalty. People are more productive in blue rooms. Studies show weightlifters are able to handle heavier weights in blue gyms.
Currently the most popular decorating color, green symbolizes nature. It is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision. It is a calming, refreshing color. People waiting to appear on TV sit in "green rooms" to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. Brides in the Middle Ages wore green to symbolize fertility. Dark green is masculine, conservative, and implies wealth.
Cheerful sunny yellow is an attention getter. While it is considered an optimistic color, people lose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused. Yellow enhances concentration, hence its use for legal pads. It also speeds metabolism.
The color of royalty, purple connotes luxury, wealth, and sophistication. It is also feminine and romantic. However, because it is rare in nature, purple can appear artificial.
Solid, reliable brown is the color of earth and is abundant in nature. Light brown implies genuineness while dark brown is similar to wood or leather. Brown can also be sad and wistful. Men are more apt to say brown is one of their favorite colors.
Colors of the Flag
In the U.S. flag, white stands for purity and innocence. Red represents valor and hardiness, while blue signifies justice, perseverance, and vigilance. The stars represent the heavens and all the good that people strive for, while the stripes emulate the sun's rays.
Food for Thought
While blue is one of the most popular colors it is one of the least appetizing. Blue food is rare in nature. Food researchers say that when humans searched for food, they learned to avoid toxic or spoiled objects, which were often blue, black, or purple. When food dyed blue is served to study subjects, they lose appetite.
Green, brown, and red are the most popular food colors. Red is often used in restaurant decorating schemes because it is an appetite stimulant.
Isn't that last part upsetting? One things for sure, if you want to lose weight, don't paint your dinning room red!As I am an artist, I enjoy learning about colors. Also, my mom's college degree was in experimental psychology. She enjoys art as well, and studied art things in school. Oh, and I enjoy this kind of stuff, too.
Enjoy and God Bless!

It feels like someone has squeezed you around the torso too hard and bruised you. But it hurts when I breath. Now, back in June, around the last week of the month, I had a cold. I think I have walking pneumonia. My brother thinks I have asthma. My mom thinks I might have a bit of pleurisy, and my dad thinks need to go to the doctor, whatever I have(probably right.:)). In a little while I am going to the doctor for whatever this thing is.
