Gabriels:  Someday... by level-13 Gabriels:  Someday... by level-13
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Do you think one day we could all just be a family, Linus?
Mickey's heart ached. It had ached for so long he really didn't know any other feeling. His only knowledge of joy was when one of his brothers would take some time to just... be with him. Talk to him. Laugh with him. He rarely smiled anymore. It was like he was shutting down as the world seemed to just whirr by in a blur of moments he couldn't quite remember. Couldn't quite... understand... how he even existed in them.

Tightening his arms around his brother, Mickey pressed his face against Lynx's skin and breathed him in. Grease, sweat, cologne and the faint smell of blood. There were so many things he wanted to say, but he had no idea how to say them so Lynx would understand. So he'd see... things were just not right anymore.

"S'ok, M." his voice was unusually tender this time. "Someday it'll happen. Someday."

Mickey desperately wanted to know when this 'someday' would happen. Some... day. What day? Tomorrow? The day after? What kind of day was 'some-day'? Some random day when they felt like stopping all of this?

"Can't someday... be today?"

And here we are with more Gabriel twins. Yes you read right. These two are actually TWINS. Fraternal of course. Lynx however, has never told Mickey that they're twins. Just that they were brothers. After all.. Mickey really isn't smart enough to question it.

I hope you guys like this one~ I wanted to do a little snipped from Mickey's point of view in relation to the Gabriel Brothers' situation. There are four of them and of the four, Mickey is the glue that kind of binds them all together. Hopefully I'll get a family portrait done for you soon! Hee~ For now, enjoy!

Don't be love <3 It's all a learning experience I think. Though funnily enough that's one of the most common comments I get (aside from "pretty boys *A* <33" lol). I don't really think I'm good enough to give advice or anything about photography because I'm still learning how to get decent shots myself. It's really all about camera angles and posing to get your dolls to emote... do you think I should put up a poll to see if anyone wants to know my process of how to do that? I mean I'm not a professional or anything, but I do go through a bank of knowledge that I was taught when I started out in film before I take my pictures -- and I think that helps me a lot.

lol well I started out doing Film & TV in high school - I won a few awards and that's what got me into game design college XD I worked on cinematics and effects there... but you know mid-way through I had my daughter and I didn't get to finish any of that XD;;; So I did start there. Just kind of never got to finish.

Sure. I'll put up a poll. I'll probably post the full thing over on my website if I do make it though -- since it would be a hugenormous journal if i did O_o;;

*goes to put up poll*

And as I said - it's not really true. You have a fanbase of nearly 500 watchers and over 45 000 pageviews. I really doubt you can keep putting yourself down when you have FAR more people watching you than MOST BJD people I've seen on DeviantArt. Do you know how many people could only DREAM of having that many? Many people probably WISH they could do what YOU do. So really, I'd stop saying that about yourself - OBVIOUSLY people DO think YOU are talented. Saying you're not kind of insults all the people that like your work! (At least, that's my opinion) Do don't be naughty and say those things anymore *shakes finger at* >.<

It only hurts you to talk down about yourself - nothing good comes of it. So instead say 'I'll work hard' - not 'this person is more talented than me so I can't do it as good.' Keep your chin up okay? No more talking badly >.< *shakes fist at*

Awww... :blush:
I know it sound ill sometimes, but still... I don't see me as an artist really. I don't know but here in Sweden we have a way of raise and treat other with, and that is "don't think you are anything, don't think you are special or what you do is any better than anyone else". I don't joking, this is the major attitude towards people here. So I'm not joking when I say that I don't see my self as an artist. I see real photographer that are amazing, they are artist, I'm not. I see people with amazing dolls and skills with them, I don't have that skill, at least not in my own eyes. And I can't say that I'm good at photographing. I really can't, since here you should not think that you are special. And I have grown up with that, it's hard to break even though I'm working on it.

And all the love I get here, it really means a lot, that I don't kid about. It's all the lovely comments and favs and followers that make me realize that people like what I'm doing and keep me want to do new stuff. That is very much all your work really. I know people like my art and what I do. And that means the world to me.

I know I should stop compare my self with others work, it's not good for me, but in the same time, that is hard stop doing when all you do is being rated and judged.

I just wanted to explain a bit so you don't think I only are the way I am to bet pity from others. I don't. I just really have a broken self confidence in some areas. But like I said, I'm working on it, and I'm actually staring to realize I have a very special eye to photographing :)
