ahhhh!! i need to know more about ??? because he's an edgy emo boy and i love. (also im sorry if this seems demanding, i understand you have work and commissions too!! pls don't stress abt this) ♡♡♡
It’s ok ♥ I’m glad to see ppl interested about Taemin’s AU ;;o;; ♥ Good thing I have a recent doodle of him (which I posted on my IG stories a few days ago)!
Basically ??? only wants to make his father (Saeran) proud of him ((in this AU, we continue from Jumin’s After Ending && Saeran was not rescued and everyone went on with their lives)) – also he steals Saeran’s eyeliner just like how Seojun steals Saeyoung’s makeup for cosplay lmao
*somewhere somehow taemin unknowingly wrecks this ship*
I’ll be posting some more info about them when I get to finishing their ref sheets ((since even im confused w their designs because all i have are doodles and some cgs HAHA)) ^__^ Thank you!!! ♥ ♥ ♥
You guys. YOU GUYS. HOW FUN WAS THAT PERFORMANCE TO WATCH. Everyone’s been saying how much more relaxed he was, how happy he was and yes there’s definitely that, but you know what I love more than anything in the world? A performer who loves to perform. Someone who just dives right inside the music and lives there. Someone who gets out of their head and just enjoys the fuck out of what’s being played around them and coming out of their mouths and THAT, my friends, is what Harry did in this performance.
I would much rather have something like this than something technically perfect with 0 emotion behind it.
Were there some problems with his technique? Sure. absolutely. Obviously the biggest concern is the ending…I do hear harmonic distortion again on the high notes (SO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET THEE TO AN ENT BEFORE YOU START TOURING!!!). He needs some work on his breathing. it would make his falsetto SO MUCH easier to sing and stay on pitch (it’s a little sloppy and there are a few moments where he gets dangerously close to losing it. Good breath support would clean this up SO easily). although I’m still very in love with his vibrato on his falsetto. It’s straight from the diaphragm. It would also help support his belt in both the bridge and the end.
Here’s the thing. I’d much rather watch a performance like this than one that’s technically perfect. This is also perfectly fine for a one off performance. Am I still a little concerned? Sure. If he keeps this up on tour he will undoubtedly have problems. But it’s getting better and hopefully he’ll continue to take this seriously and improve.
But please, again, I beg you. Just get scoped by an ENT and get that looked at to be safe, son!
hello gin!!! your newest update for 'price of a soul' is amazing! can i ask you to talk about all this symbolism in the comic (and also why do you love to hurt us so much with it)
THIS QUESTION MAKES ME SO HAPPY I’M SCREAMING THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST ANON (actually thank you everyone for your kind asks about TPOAS… THEY ARE THE FIRE IN MY VEINS THANK YOU)
I think the most important thing I wanted to work on this comic is how it is told from Tamashi’s eyes. That’s how I decided to build the characters through the story, for example, what Tamashi sees most is Allen’s face, honest, straightforward, kind, sweet, smiling, always open and welcoming:
Whereas he doesn’t see Kanda’s face, Kanda is always turned to him. And when he does, it’s from an low angle:
I had fun thinking it would be important that we, as Tamashi, know of Kanda what he does: Kanda is the father he doesn’t know anything of. Intimidating, scary, tall, unreachable, always with his back turned on him. (With his back turned to him, but I guess you wouldn’t offer your back to an enemy). I aim to, gradually, expose Kanda’s features as Tamashi grows confident, making him look more human and less of a jerk than what he does now (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
Also have you noticed how everyone bends forward to talk to Tamashi? Or squats down to be at his level? So Tamashi can stare directly at them. It’s a very simple gesture but it’s one that says I’m reducing my world to your perspective because you are as important, which Kanda never does.
The first time I read DGM i had to go through the Alma arc three times to made sure I fully understood Kanda (I keep thinking there are hints of his personality I keep missing, as I do with Allen… DGM is such an amazing artwork) so when I thought of him for this story I wanted to be very careful building the conceptualism around a character that has never forgiven himself and doesn’t want redemption. Can you imagine, you spend your life trying to fulfill a promise of love and then you find out -because you slipped once, only once, you are as human as the rest even if it might not seem so-, that you have a kid you never intended on having, even less with someone you’ll never love maybe not even remember, who kinda looks like Alma when they were kids, who is called Tamashi, who, surprise, is there to bite him in his ass. Tamashi is the perspective of a future Kanda never allowed himself to have and now he’s forced to deal with it (ﾉ≧∀≦)ﾉ Good thing Allen is here to be the bridge between present Kanda and past Kanda, Allen you angel (//▽//)ゞ So, basically, what we see of Kanda is an unforgiving Kanda, intimidating, pretending to not mind when he so clearly does (in the last update with Tamashi sleeping outside of Kanda’s room he spends there looking at the boy how long? Five minutes? Ten? He didn’t awoke Tamashi either, just lets him be. He’s trying to make his way out of this without a fuss but OH YOU WON’T BE SO LUCKY KANDA The denial Is Strong).
Oh! Also I was very careful with colors and including some… … … … little details (୨୧ ❛ᴗ❛)✧
Both panels with the flowers are very important…! they are different types of flowers in different palettes… Allen’s one are somewhat fresh and rainy, so springy, whereas Kanda’s seem to be floating on an abandoned place… Pretty, but isolated (•̀௰•́ ) This is funny because oH WELL SPOILER I GUESS / CRASHES THROUGH THE WINDOW AND FLIES INTO THE SUN
