I don't think...I'll Undertale. Even if I get the True Pacifist ending, I'll still feel horrible...

AstralCross - Ch 3 Pg 26
Link wants to bring Kira to Hyrule Castle Town, but Impa isn't one for carrying extra baggage.  Just a note: Impa is NOT being prejudice, she's being careful.

And Kira is blowing on her wound because it's stinging; the Poe burned her with its lantern.

Hey, everyone! I want to apologize for my lack on inactivity and quietness here as of late. I'll get to why in a second. But I hope all of you had a great Christmas; Santa did pretty good for me this year. I know I'm late, but I got Mario Kart 8 :D, and the DLC packages a few days later. This game is a blast, and if you've been playing Mario Kart for years (especially MarioKart 64), you know why ;)

But really, though, I want to apologize to my watchers and DA friends. Of all my ten years of being a member here, 2015 has been the least productive ever. I've been trying to make myself speed up updates on my fancomic Astral Cross for your entertainment and my own self-reassurance, but I pretty much failed on that one. Plus, I've been brainstorming and jotting down notes for my two original projects, which put a damper on updates. However, it was also something a little more personal...

Earlier this year in late summer, an old friend of mine from school passed away. We lived in different states then, so another friend in our little circle in school texted me the news. This got to me harder than I thought it would because it was so sudden, and he didn't even look sick last I saw him. But also because, to keep it short, he was one of the few kids in school to accept me immediately and was nice to me. Being bullied a couple years prior, that was moving to me. I'm going to miss him. What's a little funny is that the same thing happened to my mom last week, losing an old friend and school mate.

Also, I didn't know him personally, and I had never met him, but Monty Oum's passing got to me, too. As I said earlier this year, Monty was a big inspiration to me because of his talent in animating fight scenes (and he still is). That's one reason why I'm so glad that Rooster Teeth is continuing RWBY.

Ah...I don't want to leave you guys on a sad note. As I said, 2015 has been my least productive year as far as art and comic making. I said I would work on ten pages for the next update which was supposed to be before the year was over, but I couldn't do it. Working retail from Labor Day to Christmas consumed my life, and I looked all over DA and Youtube for inspirations for my muse, but I found nothing to kickstart it.
So, I'm going to be more productive in 2016. I'm going to make realistic goals for myself when it comes to my artwork, I'm going to try and have a routine on my days off if I'm not too tired, and I'm going to scream at that voice of doubt in my head to 'SHUT UP!!!!'. I'm going to just do it. Because not only have you guys been extremely patient with me (if you're still with me ^^;), but I honestly and sincerely want to get better with my art and myself. So, I'm praying that I gain more courage to just do, because if I don't, I'll go nowhere.

Oh! And I got a new dog this year! A German Shepard puppy we named Sam. He's a goofy, but very intelligent, sod, and I love him to death :love: I'm sorry I didn't tell you guys sooner.

Despite 2015 being not so great, it wasn't all that bad, either :) Here's hoping that 2016 will be even better for everyone :D So with five minutes left of 2015...

MERRY (late) CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :highfive: :dance: Cuddles: Fireworks  :boogie: Fireworks  Caramel dansen emote

Heya Kira, do you happen to have a Steam account?  If so then feel free to add me to your Steam Friends List then. ^^
hylian-maiden Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't have one, sadly. I've been thinking about it because I wanna get Garry's Mod.
PEACETHROUGHPOWER Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2016
I dunno why you haven't gotten one already, it's not only a hub of a good source of VG gems but also a hub for good friends as well of course (for those you know you can trust, like me of course :P ). heh heh :)  Please Note me your Steam account when you get it done since i'm usually on Steam now and it'd be nice to do some RE5 on Steam every now and then, it really would. ^^

Hey Kira, you mind if I ask you something Legend of Zelda related?

I hate to admit although I know the game I've never really played any of the series ^^; and I'm currently playing Twilight Princess at the moment but I'm sort of a little bit confused with the story. Not the game but the story of the series in general. Is the Link you've been playing in the game the same Link in all the Legend of Zelda series or are there different versions of him?
hylian-maiden Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Feel free to ask me anything Zelda-related. I'll answer as best as I can.

All Links are separate people because the series takes place over a span of centuries to millennia; the only Links that are the same person are those in direct sequels to certain games (Majora's Mask is the sequel to Ocarina of Time, for example.) The Links look the same because they all have the spirit of the Hero and most are keepers of the Triforce of Courage.

Awesome :D I figured you'd be my Zelda guide since you are the biggest fan I know of to the game :lmao: I'm thinking of having the game featured in one of my stories so what better way to know the characters a little :D

:jawdrop: Of all my years hearing about the game I never imagine that :eyepopping: I just imagined they were a bit like the Mario games, same character different story. I guess that explains a lot then, especially the name Link considering that's somewhat a connection to all the others. But how old does that make Zelda then :O_o: Better yet, dang... a century to millennia? What era do these games take place in?
hylian-maiden Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Happy to help :D

Zelda is typically around the same age as Link, or occasionally a few years older. The games take place in different time eras throughout the world's history.

Just out of curiosity, how far in Twilight Princess are you?

I don't think I ever mentioned it before, although I may have as I remember faving a few pages of AstralCross, but I just adore how you draw Link!

Thank you much! :D :D
