Tropical Paradise by Hokage3 Tropical Paradise by Hokage3
Tropical Paradise

Feature Class

School days makes me long for a break. Active life makes me thirsty for unwinding. Busy schedules make me crave for an escape. Reality isnít always fun and games, and accumulation of wariness will drain oneís zest to continue. I wait for the time when I will be rewarded with a chance to leave everything behind and obtain freedom once more. My patience has been tested, and my prayers answered, for when I stepped outside, the signs of good days has finally revealed itself.

The sun is high and bright, the air is warm and dry, the Cicadas are chirping, the Watermelons are ripe, shaved ice desserts are everywhere, and above all, Iím sweating. What best way to cool down but to have a vacation and visit paradise on Earth, where the heat is contested by the coolness of the ocean. Yes, itís that time of the year again, when students become explorers of their wide world, when women become conscious of their figures, and when boys become men. I welcome the coming of this wonderful season. I shall enjoy this blessing from the divine, the time of meetings and greetings, as we visit the place of sea, sand, surf and sunÖ.this is the moment that Iíve been waiting for enduring the struggles of life, my gift to myself, I will go to the beach, to welcome the season of SUMMER!

Our climate is semi-arid, mild and sunny throughout the year.. Overcast today. -_- I went to the beach the other day, and it felt like one of the best days of summer! Just gorgeous, and even went swimming!

Nice....It's really nice to have a tropical climate. Here at my country, where snow never falls, everyone wishes to experience snowfall...while others from a different country who experience snow curses it....heh...

Glad to know that you had fun...I miss the beach..

We are about to enter Summer months again here.....it's been ages since I visited a beach...I wish this year I could go...

ah yes, i felt the same way when i went to a nearby lake for the day a few days ago. i went kayaking for the first time then too, apparently i`m quite good at it.

i even met up with an old friend of mine while there, one that i had not seen in years, she was the life guard.... she even brought those cakes she used to make, still as good as before...butter-cream icing.

Ohh...really nice story....to meet an old friend.....that's cool...*likes butter-cream icing...

yeah, it definitely a day to remember...
i have a talent for that appearently, doing good on my first try...
how unfortunate (and ironic that i should mention it here)
that this ability of mine hasn`t transferred over to art for some reason....rather frustrating :grump:

yeah, meeting people is even better the second time. :D
*had butter cream on my cake a while ago, because i had my birthday this week*

Heh....but if you try, I bet that skill will prove to be useful in art......I suck at first times ......

Oh...Whaaaa, man, belated Happy Birthday, how could I have missed that...been absent these past days, I didn't had the time to greet you in time...hope you had a wonderful birthday, though I know my greeting is much much too late.....heres a cake; :iconcakeplz:

actually, i suppose it can, due to how what i need to do is develop a system of
transferring my anatomical knowledge into a means of fitting 2D lines together...
my psychology aptitude also allows me to focus on how people would relate to the piece,
chemistry would provide me with various formulae for paints inks and clay,
and i could even create refracting light effects based on the law of angle of reflection.
hmm....this reminds me a certain scene about this, too bad i can't find it XD

well, i have done so myself as well a few times, so...it's kewl.
thanks for the cake. :iconthecakeisalieplz: .... :iconportalplz:

Thanks thanks for the watch.....you complimented me many times, I don't know how to reciprocate...(^_^)

:iconblazepuncheroflight7:
No problem, and you don't have to worry about that. Not trying to get annoying with the compliments here but 1 more thing, I just recently restarted drawing, and it's seeing anime/manga styles such as your own that continue to inspire me, I have quite a ways to go as well as a lot of practice, but you know it's worth it, the finished product is always great to look at, and one feels a sense of accomplishment. I'll continue striving to improve, and I know for any artist that they are their own worst critic, so you continue further improving. Oh and my older sister saw some of your art, and she says she is a fan, loves the cuteness of your style, may not be word for word what she said, but it was along those lines. Anyway, I better get back to finishing my Character.

This is a feel-good read.......It's always an uplifting feeling when others say that you inspire them. I find my works as a small effort to share positive and light outlook in life, it's my medium to make a better person of myself as well...

True, There's a saying "You can't rush art".....art takes effort from the artist, to maximize what he can put on the canvas...at first you will doubt yourself that you can finish the artwork in your mind, but will will power and perseverance, you will be surprised about the quality of artwork you just created, and by looking at it, it will always serve as a testament to what you can achieve if you believe in yourself.....that's what accomplishment means to me.... thus, it's best to satisfy your self-critic first before sharing your artwork...

Awwww.....that's flattering to know.....to reach someone's heart from across the ocean, on a different part of the globe, with your art....it amazes me.....thanks for sharing your sister's feelings...tell her that I'm happy to hear it and I will make more artworks that many will like...

Yes, the job of an artists is a never ending process of creation...good luck....you've inspired me as well....

:iconblazepuncheroflight7:
Thank you man, and I'm quite honored that you've been inspired. my sister gave a happy smile when I told her what you said. I will do my best as well to create works of art that many people can enjoy.
