And then someone insensitive as Sokka comes along and says something like 'when you think about it art really isn't necessary to life at all. It doesn't mean anything. So why stress about it? Painting makes you happy, right? And people who saw your old dead prints were happy to, right? That should be enough."

A little bit uncaring to the immortality of painting blah-blah-blah but true.

Let it be what it is, sometimes go, sometimes bad, and let others make of it what they wish since they will anyway. What matters is that you are doing something you love and what feels as natural to you as breathing or is like breathing!!

Err...wait... where did I get THIS philosophy from? DAMN DAO OF POOH INVADING MY THOUGHTS AGAIN!!!

Though getting into the nitty gritty of why art is made, it was addressed in this one Korean period movie that inspired this hiatused comic.

From one level of learning to get down into honing your craft as capturing something lively and lifelike.

And then thinking about why one does this. Or how one could express something more once craft is honed.

Yes well different work-ethics around the world focus on different things don't they? :laugh:

It's interesting what all inspires us to create artwork or fanfic work or...well anything creative really.

And I'm actually just impressed that you didn't give me a emoticon glare for babbling on philospohic in my review.

I seriously wouldn't have blamed you for it.

There is much truth in the old master's words. But I feel sorry for the artist :( Artist block is a pain...

What the old man says is so completely true. True true true... for me at least. It's always a question of: don't draw something you know people would like but you have no feeling for; but rather something you want even if few would appreciate it. (Probably that's why my comics progress so slowly...) ^^;

Ah poor artist- self doubt caused by harsh words can be terrible.
Another beautiful page-the brush stroke style, the monochrome colors- all perfect. Going over to read page 3 now.
