WIP-Lineart- Saigon Parade by VISIONOFTHEWORLD
WIP-Lineart- Saigon Parade

Rough draft for military parade drawing with some perspective/construction lines. The parade consisted of soldiers in green uniforms carrying flags, women in blue uniforms and barefoot with batons, and airplanes flying in formation overhead. This draft is part of a new series I'm starting commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the end of the wars in Indochina this month.

Winter Fashion Janet
I drew this for the cold winter season, still having a hold in the north as we look to spring. The halls of underground stations can be a refuge from the bad weather, but it is all artificial light and everything is tiled, some halls go down and up, or you can take an elevator back up. Janet blows a bubble to keep from noticing how cold her feet are.

I found this… today on a blog I was reading by a man who I think is a professor of history in Vietnam. It’s not a particularly new phenomenon- creating history books with cartoon characters to interest the young goes back quite a ways. I just thought the colorful picture was really funny and, given the trends in anime fandom I wouldn’t be surprised if this book found its way into the hands of many people from all around the world just for the pictures- the context of Vietnamese historical heroes is about the newest (and most outrageous) context that manga could be used in. Apparently the publisher was then fined twenty million dong by the government for not ‘registering’ it with them first!…

I found this totally hilarious, but it got me thinking about the inspiration (or lack thereof) that people put into their art. A lot of people are drawing manga style characters- so I wonder why history which is very diverse- hasn’t been an inspiration for a lot of the art around here. On second thought maybe I shouldn’t encourage anyone to unleash their anime on anything else in the world besides generic fluff... but it’s not like it has to be that style anyway. Producing art about history inevitably leads to the study of history- since you would need to find out as much as possible about the people and places before being able to illustrate them. The end result is knowing a lot more about that event, which is not a bad deal. If it would make bored students more interested, then it’s not exactly a waste of time.

Had to laugh at this comment of yours: [link]

I love when people whine that I never admit I'm wrong. Since it's like, even if that's true, it's also true of almost every single other person on the forum, including more often than not the person complaining to/about me. It's like, suck it up, little baby. I'm not the one starting whiny threads about everyone who does it to me.

Well that is exactly my point... people who are insecure and often wrong love to complain that nobody admits, or demand that they admit to- being 'wrong'. It is funny and was meant as a joke, not that I expect anyone else to realize how ridiculous they sound :D

The whole thread is kind of amusing, really. Full of teens and youngsters who think they're owed respect and ass-kissing just for existing, then acting like assholes, idiots, and/or immature and complaining/trolling when people treat them as being assholes, idiots, and/or immature instead of coddling their shit.

Basically, brats with major entitlement complexes whining that they're not getting what they think they're entitled to.

The "ageism" complaint is what really clued me in. Oh noes, teenagers who are too young to have enough life-experience to know what they're talking about, being told that. I'M A BIG MEANIE. :lol: Everyone knows that a 17-year-old knows as much as all the adults do. Yeah, I thought that way too when I was 17, and rightly got the ego smacked out of me for it by adults who actually did know better than I did. I didn't act like a whiny shit about getting my ego popped, either.

You are most welcome, for that. I love that drawing it is really good. The expression of the lady on the left is amazing. I can't make an effective comment to do it justice it is just very good work :heart:
