myOtaku.com: Ryu no Tsurugi
This is the humble digital abode of this humble and rather rough hewn digital artist that relies much more on inspiration than tools and technique to create.
If my ideas should please at least a few of you people out there then I suppose my mission is quite well acomplished.

A last minute rant
Its not often that I rant (to people other than myself that is, or maybe my dear friend The Azure Sky...yeah he has to put up with that a lot...good thing he has a big heart and steel ears to take all that).
Anyhow...is it just me or the new Otaku is needlessly complicated, I find it very clumsy and slow compared to the usual interface (meaning this page format); they claim to be "surgically severing" The Otaku from My Otaku but I must say, they are making one sloppy job (maybe they have dull scalpels...)
I'm rather happy I must say, I feel I am slowly recovering the vacant space I left within the community. I managed to find important people within Theotaku that I had lost contact with (you know who you are) and also I'm making new friends and getting art requests often; lets hope my restablishment as a proeminent figure but above all as a good friend, keeps itself in motion.

Reality check post
Nothing of great impact to report; I'm alive and creating as usual - I'll keep visitors informed of vital happenings regardless; hopefully my otaku friends will start dropping by again.

An explanatory post
The headline says explanatory yes, but I believe it should begin with an apology; I left the community with an apology, and now I return with one, hoping to be heard; obviously I'm referring to the kind people that always followed my work closely giving me advice and encouragement (you know who you are). To sum it up I had aspects of my life that needed to be sorted out, concerning my own mental balance and my sense of being, as well as emotional structure - I felt I could not concentrate enough on developing my digital art before those issues were fully sorted and slated clean; I underwent many ups and downs in this insane state called life, but I return now better than I was when I left; in all, I hope that those among you that held me in high regard (again, you know who you are) haven't let go of that sentment in my absence; you people are important and in every single piece I create, there are pieces of you.

What Type of Person Are You? [pictures + detailed results]
The satisfied - The desireless
Not greedy by nature, the Satisfied knows of what they have achieved and earned, and feels content with that. Materialistic impulses happen rarely, if ever, and they don't value possessions and trends nearly as much as most do. The Satisfied usually have a calm personality and tend to be full of care, whether they are open with it or not. Of course they can be selfish, but their selfless nature proceeds that by far.
Downsides are that the Satisfied may be taken advantage of, in the likes of favours per se. It is in their nature to help, and they can be big push-overs when it's about injustice towards themselves. Also, since they don't want to bother their peers and close ones, they keep most of their problems inside. If this builds up they may start to suffer in silence, a completely unnecessary act.
Because they have a hard time to say no, and since people may use them, with time the Satisfied could grow hateful and distrusting. However, it appears now, that they are not. They reckon that some people are bad news and stay away from them. They stay with their own group of trusted people instead. As the Satisfied's name implies, they don't seem to have any dreams or goals. That is a perception not quite true. As any other human being, they do have them. But the difference is, that the Satisfied are content with their life even if the dream would not come true.

What Is Your Role In A Relationship? (Male and Female, detailed results with Anime Pics!)
You are Insecure
You often find it hard to believe you are worthy of the love and attention given to you by your partner, and always worry he/she could do much better than you.
Your insecurity sometimes leads you to pushing people away, or holding on too tightly. Either way, your relationships often end in tears.
Maybe you had your heart broken in the past, or have a low self-esteem - whatever the reasons are, you struggle to see what other people see in you. Some people will find this frustrating, but there will be someone out there who will delight in telling you just how fab you really are until you start to believe it yourself.Most compatible with:
The Hopeless Romantic
The Romantic will never tire of telling you how much they love you, and you will never tire of hearing it! You need someone who will give you constant reassurance, who will be prepared to make grand romantic gestures whenever you are feeling particularly insecure and will stand by you if you push or pull on them. The Romantic will do all these things and some, always making sure you know that you are the only one they could ever want.Least compatible with:
The Free Spirit
The Free Spirit won't ever show you their affection in ways obvious enough for you. You would feel constantly on edge as they flitted from one place to the next, not really caring if you followed or not. They would give you enough of a taste to tempt you, but none of the follow through and security you desire.Your song is:
Let That Be Enough, Switchfoot
