Definition of "bitter"

Adjusting these characters to an art style that's more Flash friendly. Redesign is in order, too many tentacle like things to be static or to continuously be drawing over and over. Pppff... I suppose I'll do a motion test before any commitments are made. The boy design, inspired by Afro-Futurism could probably be slightly more complex. The girl, supposed to look like a cross between an alien and an aquatic creature.

bit·ter  (btr)

Do. Or do not. There is no try.

More arrow characters... had people reviewing my script but... This will come out one way or another. If it sucks... at least it's done. I'm beginning to see relying on people to do what they say, just isn't realistic. They even get mad when you mention they didn't do what they said. I used to work the equipment cage and our boss told us this incident where this woman screamed "I can't be held responsible for what I said." True story. Long story but I thought that was so hilarious. I'm going to erase "try" from my life. Heard it a lot. Almost always ends up a not. So lest I die (yeah I used that word and is always a possibility) I'm living by the yoda quote. However another quote I really loved was, "Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?" Rammstein to keep me up all night:

                                                                     Love is a wild beast, 
                                                                                   it smells you and seeks you out. 
It nests in broken hearts, 
hunts after kisses and candlelight
Suckles itself fat on your lips, 
digs a path through your ribs. 
Let it fall like snow. 
First hot, then cold; in the end only pain. 

Love, love 
It will always restrain. 
Love, love in the end 
Prisoner in your restraints. 

Love is a wild beast, 
it bites and scratches and kicks after me. 
Holds me in its thousand arms, 
Drags me into its love-nest. 
Holds me by my skin and hair. 
And chokes me through days and years. 
Let it fall like snow. 
First hot, then cold; in the end only pain. 

Love, love, 
It will always restrain, 
Love, love in the end 
Prisoner in your restraints. 

Love is a wild beast 
In it's fall you run to it 
It stares at you 
You're bewitched from its gaze. 

Please, please, give me poison (4x)

I am the Host

"Parasitism is a non-mutual relationship between organisms of different species where one organism, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host."

"Unlike predators, parasites are generally much smaller than their host; both are special cases of consumer-resource interactions."

"Parasites reduce host biological fitness by general or specialized pathology, such as parasitic castration and impairment of secondary sex characteristics, to the modification of host behavior. Parasites increase their fitness by exploiting hosts for resources necessary for their survival, e.g. food, water, heat, habit
at, and transmission."

Character designs for "Submersible" my animated project. Honestly I don't feel like working on any of my own projects anymore... I wish I had something clever or enlightened to share. Not anymore, I am the Host and i have nothing left to take.

 Staying busy with my own projects and trying to get used to the pencil animation program... Not particularly a fun program to use. Gimp isn't so bad though. Depending on how well I can learn it, a lot of these concepts will be getting animated. Right now working on "Submersible" storyboards and if things go smoothly I'll post some pics for it. It's really won't work as a comic strip. If i can scale down the detail on this elf maybe... eh
