Sorry about the super-short reply earlier on the group page.

To tell the truth, I'm trying my hardest to keep myself organized and on track with this, but with the way things are going with my brain right now, I'm not really sure. I've been trying to think of part 1 of Project Kingdom Hearts for a while, and nothing's come to me. If you would like to set a deadline for yourself, go ahead. By all means, we all need to do that. I only set mine to March 10th because I need to start practicing writing under pressure. That, and spell-check some words I'm not sure about.

With things the way they are with my computer, I actually hope to have the script for the first part written for the project minus the voices until we get enough people to do voice acting.

So, if you want to do other things between now and March 10th (the day I will possibly be sending out the script to the artists and editor), by all means, go ahead. Don't put things off because of the studio. ^^

Sorry about the hella-long comment, but I felt as if I needed to explain why nothing's been done yet.

like I said take your time and don't stress you will only make yourself sick and we won't get anywhere

calm down and think write down idea that come to you and if they work into the skript they do if not keep them around you might be able to use them in another story down the road. thats what I am doing with my comic idea

Hmm... never thought about it like that... maybe I'll try it out.

another thing you might want to try is take a long shower and sit in the tube and have the water come down on your head It clears my head and allows me to think as well as calm myself so I can get new ideas and also sleep better. it's just an idea thou. also as a possable next project do you think I can ask for my comic to be as a future project. I just thought it might make a good project for the future. anyway enough about this lets consontrate on this project and make it a sucess

hey there! i also read your comment at sketchtastrophe's profile...
i just want to say cheer up, it doesn't matter if you don't win in contests... what's more important is you did your best and you had fun doing it... ^_^

Hiya -- I'm aware it wasn't me you took contact to but I read your comment/question to *sketchtastrophe and had to comment back here. I hope you don't mind. Thing is, I recognized the negative experience with a contest that you told of. I too tried to participate in a contest (awareness of women abuse) and waited a very long time for the results only to be that "No, we didn't pick a winner or runner-ups. This is not what we were looking for."

Truth to be told I was very angry hearing this. We were a large group of aspiring artists who had put effort and time into making these pieces. I felt the same hearing your story -- true, there can simply be too few entries but the judges should still take time to place the entries that did enter, if only to give the artists a bit of feedback.

So, honestly, to me anyhow, it was a bit hard to swallow. I doubted my skills because I had been so darn proud of that piece but they wouldn't even place it. And honestly I'm not sure how I moved on from that--I guess I got a little stubborn, thinking "I'll show them for sure!" and just kept drawing and practising. Whatever you do, don't let it get you down and make you quit. Just keep drawing, for every sketch or piece you make you get better, you add the experience to your baggage. Just keep it up your work.

Also, instead of contests, there's a section in the forum for requests. A lot of deviants requests for other artists' work here, most oftenly for their characters to be drawn. I can warmly suggest trying this in place of the contets. It's less stressful because there's no price or placement looming over your head and you still get to practise because it's not yourself setting the guidelines. Of course, it's like a free sketch or drawing but it's still wonderful practise so if you want to you could check that out ;)

Well, sorry to post an entire novel here, I just really wanted to help keep you in good spirits. Shit like this happens but you just got to keep working and moving ahead. Do your best! :hug:

Ah, Greetings! And hello, nice Deviations so far, I see your working on the water bottle contest
palmtree28 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2010
Ya I posted a few but I am not keeping my hopes up I saw quite a few much better peaces of work then mine. but there is no harm in trying. I still have a long way to go yet. right now I am attepting to learn how to ink and color in photoshop as well as improve my own artwork. I am also entering the acen cover contest and the palcomix cats and cameras contest but again I am not hoping for much. any advise you can give me would be greatly accepted

give me a shout out again sometime
