Jo_Penwow! Hi to you! I got ur comment notice in my email :) How are u doing?? Its great to hear from u ^-^ Im not so much into drawing or anything but still doing poetry occassionally. Did u finish school? I know u were in the midst of that at the time. Hows the writing??

nextguardianOh, wow! Sorry for the late reply; I didn't honestly expect it!
Still doing the college thing at this point. About ready to be done, but I've decided not to rush, since I'm not absolutely positive of what I want to do afterward.
I'm glad to hear you're still doing poetry. You're very talented ^^
Still writing, but I've branched out a bit. An original fic, some love stories, and even some Star Trek.
It's good to hear from you again! I meant to ask- if you're interested in staying in touch, I could PM you my email address.

nextguardianIt's nice of you to compliment my work^^ I've seen more stuff, gotten into anime a little, so I can kind of draw a wider scope. It's getting more fun^^
It's good to hear that you're doing good, and it's always a treat to hear from you. You always word your comments so thoughtfully.


(It was funny- in the last month, you, MitchellP, and Flashthehedgehog have all come back. It's like an online reunion, lol)

Jo_PenHa ha, a reunion, Yay!! yeah..i noticed ur anime and ur like a whole different artist! Its always good to expand ranges in everything you do. You can take experiences from different areas and implement them into ur own art and make it totally something unique! ^_^ Its great hearing from you too and glad to know ur stil around :) *huggles*

nextguardianI admit, I was constricted to Sonic for a long time, by my own hand. Oh well, I'm glad I tried some other stuff.

What's ironic is that the most new material has come from my own life. A renewed interest in martial arts has made for some interesting battle scenes for my fics and pics^^ I just can't get certain parts of people right (I'm terrified of drawing females, lol).

Thanks again for that comment on my latest. There's really only you and one other person who have seen me from pic 1 to 167, now that I think of it! Thanks for all the help, too, some of the stuff you've told me I've passed on to other people (Who do way better work, lol), or I keep in mind myself!

Jo_Pen:) Dont be afraid to try something u think is out of ur range or talent! U never know until u try, right?? And im honored to be one who has seen ur progression thru all these years! ^_^ Its awesome to see ur progression where the rest of us fall short. Believe me....ur work is worth more than the effort the rest of us has put into! And hehe..u know thats true!! Im so happy to be seeing ur work and being able to hear from u! You push me and inspire me more than anyone ever has. U are definetly one of my favorite artists ^_^ Plus its so fun being able to talk with u after so long!! :D YAY!! Ur awesome, NG :)

nextguardianWell, I DO try...they just don't find their way on FAC, lol. Some stuff I just couldn't post w/o being embarrased.

Thanks, that really means alot^^ It's funny to think that I've been on FAC for two and half years. Can't believe it's been so long!

nextguardianWow, hi! I haven't talked to you in just about a year exactly, judging by my last post! How have you been?

Thanks for the compliments, they're always appreciated^^

Jo_Pen on June 30, 2008, 1:38:07 AM

nextguardianI understand. My offer to help any way I can stands. Take care, and take your time sorting things out.

nextguardianNo, not too heavy at all. Your posts are always intelligent and thought provoking. If I could provide a forum, or a friendly ear (Of eye, whatver, lol), I'm glad I could do that. (And I will continue to do so, you know where to find me!)

No one is perfect. Four incredibly true words. Taking the good with the bad is part of life. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. You're very level-headed about the whole thing, and this is most certainly a good thing. For someone to criticize faults, I think they should be faultless first. If only...there wouldn't be any criticizing :D

The fact that "You" have changed, instead of forcing the world to change, is incredibly good. And WAAAYYY to mature for me, lol.

Seriously, I've got to say I have a tremendous amount of respect for you, the way the you're handling the whole situation. I'm not going to pretend to know everything (I hope I don't sound that way, It's unintentional if I do.), but I do know you wrote some incredibly true words that alot of peole would have a hard time accepting.

Keep in touch, okay? (Makes a sage face and quotes Ninja Turtles movie XD) "If you need a friendly ear, my ear is open..."

nextguardianHi amigo, things going nay better?

nextguardian on June 13, 2007, 3:52:43 PM

nextguardianThese things happen. I have a similar problem, except I don't relate to anyone very well. Apparently, I tend to come across as aloof or arrogant.

I'm sure you'll figure this out. You're an intelligent person, that's easy to spot. And to think of the number of times you've helped me out...I have a feeling things will work out. I'm sure your friend will realize what an asset you are to him/her, and things will go back to normal.

Alas, human nature, huh? Expression is one of those things that makes us individuals.
