Can't Touch - October 2016 by The-Ez Can't Touch - October 2016 by The-Ez
Hey guys! :wave:

Ruth and Theodore are in the Valiard Mansion and something mighty spooky is going on! :faint: So close but can't touch! :la:

Did this as a sketch at first and couldn't resist colouring it over Halloween because it's semi-spooky-creepy. Haha! :giggle:

If anyone's interested in finding out more about this story, do check out www.TheValiardMansion.com to read the first 7 chapters of the novel for free. It's literally just a link you click and the PDF will start downloading. That's about 30% of the novel, no strings attached! :aww:

And to those of you who know what this scene is about, Shhhh! ;) No spoilers, please. It's our secret! :D

I hope you don't mind but I am going to try to use this pose to some extent as a practic and possibly end result pic of Michelle and GIdeon in the book. I've ben trying so hard to figure this out.

Not to give it away but Michelle's pulled into an enchanted Mirror....and the part is where Gideon is first seeing her...and she's begging him to let her go so he can live....its a long story. :D 

ANyways I hadn't even thought about this angle...so I"d like to play with it and if it does finalize as such I will try to give you credit for the inspiration. :D 

I'm not saying I'm 100% using the pose just the inspiration...I will try so hard to avoid copying it in too much of a way. Its just ahrd to explain LOL :D
But this makes me think of trying this out adn I just hope it works. If not...ah well great pic :D

I tried and failed the first time then I realized....maybe I should zoom in on them more...because I want you to see their facial expressions the most. And then theres the whole they're at a Mirror and I Don't think Michelle's would have a reflection she's in an enchanted mirror it took her soul...in a sense....and her body is under a bad guy's control. So when Gideon's there I think I should see his reflection but if we're looking from this angle would it even show? LOL I want people to know she's in a mirror. I will try to do the wood around it......the frame! 

I just hope it works but last night I was like damn I messed up...then I was like set it aside and step back later when I lok at it aI may not agree.

(shrugs) I do that sometimes change my mind a day or two later.

That's a huge compliment! :D I really wanted the look and feel of this story to look like one of those Disney ripoff movies from the '90s. :giggle: Like Swan Princess or Quest for Camelot haha!

Yeah I remember those! Loved the water transformation in Swan Lake and the songs in Quest for Camelot :3 I do some animation but I'm not sure I'm quite at the level you need just yet+ I mostly use Flash, it's semi-good for inbetweening. Although, it'd be easy to stamp on some fire with particleIllusion, I think I have a gif somewhere in my computer, which I could note you if you're still interested

Hey Michelle!

Thanks for your kind words about my work.

I have to urge you to take your novel offline before looking for a literary agent. When you post your book online, you are classified as "self-published" and very few agents or publishers will touch self-published books with a ten foot pole.

This is just info I've heard from several sources after exploring publication options in late 2014.

Wishing you the best in getting published! :D

Ty for the advice. I'm not even sure if I will ever get to find an agent or want to. I am just more interested in sharing my stories. I'm not really in the mood to become famous or nothing. I have so many issues in my life I deal with every day....

I get a joy from sharing my work too! LOL :D I dunno why. But if my mind changes I will take them down. Last year I was dianosed with a life ending disease...

There is no cure for Huntington's Disease, and I have so many psyolgical issues I was just approved for disability at 35 years old. I can't deal with time crunches by the publishers or trying to talk to fans etc. You know all the stuff that can go on in the publicity stuff. 

My stories...and my art is really one of the only good things in my life and if I can share them and inspire others to creat and dream.....no matter how dire their life is...

WOW!

I can only tip my hat to you in respect, seriously.

I absolutely agree that sharing your work with the world is sometimes more important than getting a deal or something fancy like that. It's how I felt when I posted my novel online. I figured I'd rather have someone reading it than no-one reading it, because I wasn't writing for myself. I was writing for an audience, however big or small.

And that's a decision you have to make for yourself. If it feels right in your heart, then you do it. It's ALWAYS that simple. ;)

It's just I know writers can shoot themselves in the foot by publishing online, even if it's for free. You tarnish almost every hope of getting a traditional publishing deal for THAT book, although you can write others and keep them under lock and key, then get publishing deals for those books. (It's about the book being self-published, not the author.)

Perhaps check out Wattpad, if you haven't yet. They hold an annual even called The Wattys where, if you win, you get your book published, even if you've already posted the whole thing on their site.

Unfortunately I'm swamped and don't have time to read your novel, but I'm sending you lots of hugs and best wishes for success. :D

TY So much for understanding. Yeah I get comments alot on my Disney art (well on my old profile those comments were there) how they wished I was working for Disney cause they loved th eDisney princess I"d drawn and wanted it. LOL

Sadly you can't sell it, and I don't have money to print it off and give it to them. I guess....maybe if they paid for the print price itself and the shipping cost its not the same thing? Right? I mean that would be my reasoning. "Well it costs lets say 5 bucks to print it (just an example) and another 3 to ship so its 8 bucks. that seems fair right? LOL and Disney couldn't come back and kick my butt legally speaking.

I make no money in that process.. I just save my own.

I figure if I did want to publish it I could take it down 100% right? I mean I"d think so but who knows with the net. Yeah I just don't want to be famous or rich....neither is fun in this world. I just wouldn't want the privacy I enjoy now to be spoiled. Plus I'm Bioplar type 2...with mania I just can't handle that pressure. I have a hard enough time talking to my friends and having the energy to get up in the morning. I was just approved for Disability...I think I might have said that. LOL So thankfully I don't have to worry about work right now and thats what I need. Sadly unlike waht the judge said about hope in my future unless a cure comes in for my actual disease Huntington's Disease then I don't have much to look forward to. But as long as God has me here, every breath I take...I know he has a plan. I just don't know if I've got the courage my own mother has. I fear that one day I will fail that way....its hard to not give up to not kill yourself to prevent your family and friends from suffering and also yourself. HD takes everything away...everything you could do.....and it can last up to 30 years of suffering....its not easy. Its known as one of the worst diseases known by the Dr's.

Anyways when you get the time go ahead and read. I understand you are busy. I also appreciate you talking to me, most people who are published don't give me advice. LOL I asked one person years ago when I watned to work at Disney. They were like oh...and wouldn't explain it. So yeah...they didnt' want competition? I guess lol I'm not really sure.

Your book is cute I was reading it yesterday but I read so much for so long I Got a headache and today I wanna work on Sinborn Wings book 1 chapter 8. So maybe later I will read more. I just have a bad habbit of reading straight thru a book until I have a massive headache LOL ....I'm a fast reader too. 

Ahhhhhh anotehr letter insted of a simple post...I guess its a writers thing?
