Learning to Paint Day 1 - Link by Greg-M
Learning to Paint Day 1 - Link
Hey guys, 
I know this is definitely a step away from my usual stuff but hold on to your seats cause its gonna get crazier...
Some of you may know that Ive been writing a book for the past forever, and one thing thats come up is that I would really like to get some art work done for some of the awesome scenes that I have in my head, but, I dont think my stuff is up to the level I would want for it. SO, I've compiled a list of some of my favorite characters from shows, games, movies, and stories to do some tribute art to while I learn to paint WITHOUT lines. Heres character number uno, and my first bit of experimentation on Link with miss Navi.

If anyone could critique or give me some advice for how THEY paint without lines it would all be much appreciated.

Dairou: Trouble On The Way~ by Greg-M
Dairou: Trouble On The Way~
Gotta protect those ladies man~
Dairou laying a smackdown on a drunken husbando who thought it was okay to be hard on his lady-
A lot of fun to paint up.

1. Trouble on the way
     Keep in mind the world outside the village walls is a dangerous place fit only for shinobi,
     It wouldn't be surprising to run into a few bandits or wild animals on the way there.
     Who knows, maybe you could protect a farmer and he'd tell you one of the above clues!
     Options for mission:
     -Night time: Running into a small pack of wolves, or a cougar.
     (slightly enhanced compared to a normal animal, thus almost a match for a shinobi)
     -Day time: Running into a small group of bandits.
     (Though they don't perform techniques, their weapon skills are on par with shinobi) 
     Your Task:
     Draw or Write about your character (and their squad) heading to their investigation location.
     Whether you save a villager and gather information, or just meet with danger is up to you.

Welcome Home Dairou by Greg-M
Welcome Home Dairou
Now you guys know why Dairou cant stand fish~
5. Welcome Home. 
     It's been a long journey, we've been away from home for weeks, time to go home.
     I'm sure your friends and family are worried sick! This our first successful serious mission!
     I'm sure some people will be celebrating, and others will just want to rest. What will you do?
     Your Task:
     Draw or Write about your OC returning home, this is one of the first big missions involving youngsters,
     It was probably really hard on all the families of the village, so make sure to give em a big hug!

Snowfall Celebration: Warrior Women by Greg-M
Snowfall Celebration: Warrior Women
SOOOOOoooo, Just read something rather interesting about Kosetsumura~

"Kōsetsumura Hunter-Nin are very nomadic, and often spend weeks scouting away from their village at a time.
This is because of their deadly neighbors and long-time nemesis, Ihaigakure - The Village of Fire, Lava and Ash.
As such, the image of the Hunter-Nin is somewhat glorified back at home, "The Heroes of the North" they call them.
But the career itself is perhaps the most difficult of any shinobi role on the continent, and holds a very high mortality rate.
Though a female shinobi Kōsetsumura is about as common as a blizzard in Ihaigakure, the Hunter-Nin are an exception:
Though there are still ten men for every woman in Kōsetsumura's military, almost all female Shinobi become Hunter-Nin."

XD Couldnt wait to see how Dairou would fare in such a place...

ANnnnyways....

4. Snowfall Celebration. 
     All of the bandits have been defeated thanks to everyone's heroic efforts!
     As a thank you, Kōsetsumura is holding a big banquet in the town square.
     While the 3 Jōnin interrogate the bandits for more information, the others are celebrating!
     Your Task:
     Draw or Write about your OC celebrating in Kōsetsumura over their victory against the bandits!
     note: Kōsetsumura is a very small village, the buildings are similar to TG (old and traditional),
     but there is snow all over the place, the buildings are not painted, and have wooden roofs (not tile).

The Sparks To The Future Flame by Greg-M
The Sparks To The Future Flame
Dairou and Fumio throwing some bandits a beating

3. The Sparks to the Future Flame. 
(note: you must complete Mission 2 before attempting this mission!)
     All of the groups head to the signal fire and are re-uinited, and are found shortly after by the 3 Jōnin,
     who scouted the area and found the bandit's camp! They devise a plan to ambush the bandits at nightfall.
     Your Task:
     Draw or Write about your character (and company if you wish) Ambushing the Bandit camp from above!
     (There are cliffs on all sides, it will be a great way to bring fear to the enemies hearts!),
     The Jōnin will set the tents on fire with some flaming arrows, when the tents go up in flames, 
     It's your time to raid the cowards as they try and escape! They will put up a fight, but nothing like before!

     The bandits are now cowards, totally demoralized from the ambush, they're fighting poorly and running away!
     Each shinobi (regardless of age) can take on a bandit alone and come out victorious, the damn cowards!
     In groups of 2-3, you can take on up to twice as many (4-6) bandits! Show them the pride of Tōrōgakure!

Hey there!

Sorry to barge in like this out of nowhere, but I’d like to invite you to 

:icond0wn-t0wn:

A group about mythical creatures who struggle to survive in a forgotten part of the town New Thedford. 
They live a hard life trying to hide from humans, whilst living among them trying not to get noticed.

All creatures are welcome as long as the lore of the creature is followed somewhat, the design is up to you!
If you’re into roleplay and also creatures of any kind, this might be something for you.

We hope to see you soon in Down Town!
