Commented on Woman by adlescouflair.
" It's great that you are positive about practicing! It will help you just as much as any advice can, so keep that up!
It's important that you practice drawing real life as often as possible (atleast once a day is good) it doesn't have to be
a face necesarily, even if portraits are the one thing you want to be better at, the important thing is that you (and pardon
me now if this explanation is a bit unclear, but english isn't my first language) Practice you're Eyesight when it
comes to looking at something and being able to draw it without making it to complicated. You will get better
at drawing portraits too and people too, even if you only practice using househols objects for a while.[...]"

Commented on Hair by sutoroberikurimu.
HairHe couldn't help but stare like an insane idiot.
More than anyone, Herman knew he should never have allowed those kinds of thoughts to inhabit his brain, let alone turn them into actions. Especially when what - who - those ideas were mostly, if not all, about was the harsh, icy woman trotting not far from him, whom it was law he was never to touch like any other woman he normally would.
But that one special female being whom access to her body and heart by any man except her father and (deceased) brother was strictly prohibited, she was still a woman. And a woman is always human. And so was Herman. Both of them were human, and therefore it couldn't hurt if he had that more-than-a-friend kind of affection towards another human being. Or... just the way her attractively long, smooth chocolate hair sway freely in the wind like a river, or more like the flag of a free nation atop a windy mountain overlooking the sea when not gathered into a stiff braid around the top of her head for
"You asked if the character is just another Bella Swan: I have to admit that I haven't read the books, but if she's anything like she is in the films then I'll say absolutely not. Linda seems pretty interesting to me. One thing about her is that, from the way she comes across, she's actually pretty funny, something I didn't expect. Like the way this vignette ends on a more lighthearted note, and in the other one she passes off the King's claims in a nonchalant way. I thought Herman was like that too, the way he has a crush on Linda and is toying with the idea in his head - it made for fun reading [...]"

What to expect on the last day of school.If you're anything like me, your last day of school will go something like this:
The first thing you do is wake up, of course. You most likely end up doing this a lot earlier than you usually do. Why? Who knows. Perhaps your brain is practicing for the mind-numbing commuting you'll start in a couple of years. Or, possibly - in the same way that the early bird gets the worm - you're supposing that the early thinker gets their answer. You aren't quite able to sink your talons into this one, however, and nothing's coming to you. Whatever, it's too early for that kind of stuff. Your brain fizzes as you take your pills / drink your water / check your phone, and then you get ready for school one last time.
Your morning routine is so firmly etched into your head that your joints seem to move automatically. You run through all the different variables presented to you and file them accordingly: open door, turn left, walk down step (x14), turn right, step forwards (x10), open cupboard...it's the
Cute?Of all the words this mighty language holds,
This tree from which we poets pick our fruit,
How come, describing me, your tongue, it folds,
And so the only word you find is "cute"?
Indeed, a logic breathes in what you claim:
My dimples shine, my hair a gleaming star
Standing aloof atop my skinny frame
Like how a kitten's eyes glint from afar.
However, deep inside this gloomy skull
Are thoughts to test the rationale of men:
Corruption, murder, spices for our dull
Existence on this Earth, bleed from my pen.
So, darling, could you please not call me cute;
A simple hug would leave my grouching mute.

How's it going? Feels like eons since we last spoke. I've been planning to talk for ages, but I don't know, I guess I got caught up in all my school work and didn't have time for fun. It also took me quite a bit of digging to find your email. Your name sure surprised me! You must have made it years ago, I can see you changing it pretty soon, lol.
But yeah, like I said it's been ages since we last talked, moreover seen each other. How have you been doing? I myself have been feeling great recently: all my schoolwork's been turning out fine, and with these coming exams I think getting into Uni should be a breeze. Though, if I remember correctly, none of that stuff ever interested you, a

Commented on Rapunzel by tasiams.
"I like very much your expression, it is very soft, it transmits peace. It's really beautiful. I like the way in which your hair falls, especially the part closest to your forehead. The hair behind the right arm (from where I see it is right arm, but I suppose it is left arm for her) the hair looks slightly different from the rest. As if it were less. The hair on the other side looks very beautiful, but I'd like some strands to fall by his shoulder toward the front.
His neck is long and elegant, that I really like. But perhaps the left shoulder should be slightly inwards. Be small. I'm not sure if you understand. I will use as a reference the other shoulder, the other has the sufficient distance, perhaps could have done the same distance, only a little farther away. [...]"
