Hope by SammyTorres Hope by SammyTorres
As you know, I was hoping to join the Nippon-Nordic program this september but I was informed today that my project (TDN) was declined.
I have a feeling that I didn't present it well enough and made a very little impact on impressing the committee. I am so fucking sad right now so I drew Castan and Olive looking at the stars....

There's a part in chapter 1 where Olive is sad about something and then Castan comes in giving her some comfort and hope. So this art is very important, not just for the characters but for me as well - at least right now.

I'm starting on a job on June 1st so again TDN progress will be slowed down again. I'm on very short money atm and I need a job to keep my income steady. Perhaps till fall/winter I'll get a month or 2 to actually start drawing more things.

You can follow TDN on Tumblr as well (I also reblog inspirational posts like other art and photos of nature)

Thank you all for the support!

This is so beautiful. I'm so sorry you're feeling sad...I am too, actually, with all the things happening in life right now...but this, this actually brings me some comfort. It honestly does. I hope it did for you too as you drew it. I hope things cheer up for you soon though. :hug:

This is beautiful! It's amazing what an artist's emotions can create, even the bad emotions. I really admire that you could create something like this despite being so down. I hope you feel better soon :hug:

Really sorry to hear that, they obviously just don't know good character design and art when they see it. What exactly was that company doing, would they look at funding you or something?

it was a skill-up training program for 3 weeks where I'd get help and feedback from professionals to develop/improve my universe and make the best success/profit of it.
However, I can always try next year c: meantime, I'll have done more work on it and therefore have more to show off
