also, you could hav a unique view that maybe someone else hadn't thought about before, and if you share it u can widen ppl's perspectives because what one verse means to you and for u may not be the same for someone else :)

Yea, that too......thank you Jawz ;D, 'cause it's like that train of thought process that goes through your mind when reading a chapter or verse in the Bible and it's really inspiring to you. ;D

I just thought I should say this.

I joined only after seeing this thread.  I didn't need or want an unfocused, random forum.  I was looking for a very specific thing:  a place where I could better my skills in a Godly environment. Silliness and goofing off are contagious.  They really are.  You see others doing it, you laugh, and you want to get in on it.  That is perfectly natural.  But...

Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.

Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.

~Julia Carney


I want the 'little minutes' I spend on this forum to be focused, so that I don't accidentally spend an 'eternity' goofing off.

Lessee... no clue what I should put here... and I usually get a lot out of siggies.  Um, my creative writing blog.  Self promotional but socially acceptable.  http://kathrineroid.wordpress.com

Let's throw in a mouse for good measure. ~m^>

Hi Kath,

Thanks for that post - it's thought provoking about how to spend our time... I've been wondering the same about time spent off the computer, about how even if a little time is spent (or not spent) drawing on a manga that it can mean that years down the track the project is either finished or not finished... that said, we shouldn't run ourselves in to the ground either (I have a full time job so need time to relax but not to waste...)

...
...

long winded way to say thank you :D

I haven't read all of the posts on this thread, but I just want to ask for a little bit of clarification...

Like many others, my primary purpose for coming here is to learn and grow in the area of art and manga in a God-honoring environment.  I'm not necessarily here to do much by the way of theological discussion or Bible study, but I expect that when I and others post, our Christian worldview is affecting the way we view even the most rudimentary elements of art and writing.

Can I assume that, when I am exchanging critique on art, sharing tutorials and suggestions on craft, or even just telling someone that I like their manga - posts like that fit with the goal of the site?
God Bless,
Aubrey Hansen

I'm a writer.  I don't really draw, but my friends make me do it on occasion anyway.  I post my stuff here, if you're interested.

Even though I can't draw, I am pretty good at inking!  Drop me a line if you're in need of someone to do the tedious work of inking.

Yes, that's it.  :)  That's exactly the kind of posts we need.

@ KathrineROID and sarah_yt: I just wanted to say............I'm so glad I read those two posts you guys put here, my brother and I have been working with the max of holding up around the household, 'cause my Mom is a bit down, and not able to do this stuff for right now. So the question, "how am I going to finish my manga if my time is consume with this other thing, even though I love helping the family, I want to be able to do God's work and there is so little time right now..." Well Kath is right about those little moments of time, I'm glad I got to see that and it seems helping my family has only lead me to a more open view of doing things for God. So I'll cherish every moment I spend knowing in everything I do, I am still doing God's Will.

Can I assume that, when I am exchanging critique on art, sharing tutorials and suggestions on craft, or even just telling someone that I like their manga - posts like that fit with the goal of the site?

I second that and will totally be doing more posts concerning those things. ;D :)
