Enter the Superfight !! by Tindyflow Enter the Superfight !! :icontindyflow:Tindyflow 4 0
She was a star taking her first breath
She was the first wave in the first ocean
Her laughter was the wind,
Her tears became the rain and her rage turned the skies black,
She was everything,
Yet, with all her strength and all her might, she could never see this,
She believed that she was lower than dirt,
That she did not deserve the air that she breathed,
Her light was brighter than every nebular in the universe,
I wished that I could make her see this,
That she could open her eyes and see that her glory was boundless,
That the world turned and the universe moved because she lived,
But, all I could do was hold her,
All I could do was stand beside her when the skies came crashing down,
I promised to be her shield, but truth be told;
She was always mine,
I will continue to walk beside her,
I will always tell her how wonderful she is,
Because she is wonderful
She is starlight,
She life itself,
She is my life,

I want you to live!
I don’t want someone who would die for me.
I want someone who would be willing to live for me.
Because, that is the true test of the heart;
To brave this world, with all its cruelty and shadow,
To look into the future with wide eyes, and have the courage to fight on.
Someone who would love me so fiercely, that they would be willing to defy fate.
To fight the odds,
The monsters,
The demons,
To be there for me, when it all comes to an end.
Even in that final moment, I would hope to see that fire in your eyes.
That devil may care grin, that baring of teeth, the soul of a hero.
I want you to stand beside me,
Shoulder to shoulder
Filled with a defiance that only love can create.
In this world, to live, is the greatest battle.
So, my love, I will make you a promise, too;
I will live for you, too.

Eid Ul Adha 2017
(please view with window maximized)
Having recently uploaded few images of the livestock markets and the purchase of sacrificial animals that are the focus of this major Islamic religious festival,  On previous years I received comments that indicate that while this festival is "known about" most people dont really know what it is about. I thought I might share and explanation along with a few of my personal favourite images related to the festival in my DA folders.  This little journal is just an explanation of our perspective and our custom and please do not consider it to be anything beyond a journalistic article.
It is well known to Muslims, Christians and Jews that Abraham was ordered to sacrifice his son and he was willing to do so but God gave him a sheep to sacrifice instead of his cherished progeny. It is this act of faith that is celebrat

Hey everyone! I last updated my status in November 2016...dang, it's been a while. I'm gonna try to be more active here and also change up my subject matter. I'm still attending art school at the moment and if things go as planned, I'll be graduating in December this year. I'm still a FFVII fan and await that remake's released date! I've also returned to my roots and started watching Pokemon again thanks to the XY/Z series. So I might be posting some of that stuff as well. I want to make gallery diverse and might make another account separate from this one, but I'm not the fence about it. Anyways, just wanted to give those of you who still watch my dA page a little update. Hope things are going well. 

Until next time! :D


Also I noticed they got rid of the "Feeling" emoticons for the journals...or am I missing something? 
  • Listening to: Korn - Black is the Soul
  • Reading: ToonBoom Manual

I'll take time to hear your story.

My goal right now in life is become an animator for a big company like Pixar or Dreamworks...I want to work on 3-D animated movies. I'm very determined to make it come true. I'm also interested in learning/practicing piano, guitar, and martial arts. My all time favorite games are the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, DMC, Zombies on Call of Duty: World at War.

Men!! I love your works! How many time take on to draw Cloud like you do now?
Ex-Soldier-Cloud Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2017  Student Filmographer
Aww thanks! Well now it only takes one try to draw Cloud. But I still draw little warm up drawings in a little sketch book. Also, I've been drawing Cloud since 2006, so after a lot of studying how to draw him, it gets easier. Thank you again!
