In the last week or so after getting work done for a production job I have, I tried to work on commissions but I still wasn't in the right frame of mind for it. I didn't want to deliver a sub-par piece to a client, so I doodled some Inuyasha fanart instead because it's therapy for me, and this happened. Another instance of a doodle on scrap paper turning into something finished. I wanted to play with some back lighting, too.

This is set in the middle of the epilogue and was inspired by a fic that I like very much called Granted Wish by Knittingknots. You can find it on FF.net here: [link]

I should be okay to work on commissions again now.

Mmm, it's like comfort food. This is absolutely beautiful, a perfect compliment to the story that inspired it. I love the back lighting, it gives it such an air of intimacy.

LOL, if this is your therapy, I certainly don't blame you for indulging in it every chance you get! =)

Is this all in subs or dubs...? (japanese or english) Because I haven't heard anything about new shows until I saw you art work...

It's subtitled Japanese (thank GOD). I can't stand the English dub.

I've found once you watch subtitled media enough, you do both at the same time. I just can't do the dub; it makes my ears bleed because it's just... so bad. *shudder* I'll trade reading for decent acting any day. : P

(shrugs) I guess I'm so used to dubs (and what I can get on tv before I even KNEW that I could watch it on line) I just got so used to some voices in english it doesn't bother me as much as some others.

That's the odd thing for me. I discovered Inuyasha and the online anime community in general via Adult Swim in 2002. I watched the first 40-or-so episodes on Cartoon Network in English because I didn't know it was possible to get anything else. When CN ended that section of episodes I started hunting, found fansubs, and immediately switched because the quality was just so much better to me. Ever since then if the dub comes on TV I immediately change the channel or turn it off completely just because it bugs me THAT much. It may just be because it's my favorite series... I can tolerate the dub for some other series, but I usually prefer the original Japanese 9 times out of 10.

It seems to me there's a trend that the voice actors in the anime dub circuit over here just don't... I don't know... feel it as much, I guess. I don't know if it's bad directing, or they haven't read the source material, or what... but it just seems so shallow. Like it's just a job rather than really caring about the storyline and the characters they play.
