Ok, so my good buddy ~SirHavin was at a cook out a while ago and while there, was approached by (EDIT) her brother's MMA cornerman's wife (who was a bit tipsy 9u9) who said that she had seen her stuff here on good old dA and said that she could go pro if she wanted; she even went on to say that she had relatives who were in the animating business and even had her mother come over and check out her stuff, and she even said she had potential to go far.
Now, one of them mentioned something about bringing some stuff to a comic book store and getting her stuff out there. This is around where I said I'd like to hop on the band wagon and see if it could go anywhere. She did a bit more research on the matter and said it would be good to also send our stuff to a magazine that publishes manga (something about if they like your stuff they'll publish it and they may keep you on to do other projects too, etc.).
We even thought if this takes off, that we could maybe to a collab together down the road.
If it does, that would be bitchin' as all get out, and if it doesnt, oh well, we can at least say we tried.
fingers are crossed and expectations are no where if not low. That way if this does go well, I can be genuinely suprised
