Author: Rene Saldana, Jr.

A long-term friendship is put to the test in The Whole Sky Full of Stars, a novel by Rene Saldana, Jr. Get the review right here.

A No-Win Situation

Barry and Alby have been best friends since the first grade, but they're as different as night and day. Barry is a bit of a teddy bear - but he would still punch a guy out and make him see stars to protect his family, especially since his dad passed away and his mom is slaving away at two jobs just to make ends meet. Alby, on the other hand, is small and conniving. He can talk his way out of anything... well, almost anything. When Alby gets caught up in a gambling debt with a bunch of thugs, he has to come up with $500 fast!

That's What Friends Aren't For

Alby thinks his prayers are answered when a shady competition called the Man 'o Might comes to town. He goes to dirty lengths to convince Barry to enter the match - without even considering the fact that Barry could get hurt - cuz Alby could use the prize money to pay back his debts! But when Alby finds out the prize is a measley $100, he starts making bets on the side to pull in some extra cash, putting himself in even more danger and his friendship with Barry on the line.

The Bottom Line

The Whole Sky Full of Stars is one of those heartwarming stories about the importance of friends and family and how you should never take anyone for granted, cuz you never know when they'll be taken away from you. There isn't much action until you get to the fight scenes - and then, you'll be glued.

    Hi! I'm making this so I can get commissions to draw something from someone. I love doing commissions, and I love drawing :3 If you'd like to request something, here's what I'll need to know. Note: I tend to do humans (mostly OCs for people) and fail at inanimate objects/plants/animals, but I can try XD Style: Realistic (Hardest for me) *A selection of a head shape. Like, oblong, square, oval, etc., and if you don't know all them or what they look like, look up some charts of head shapes, and pick your favorite. Or just, whatever your character has XD *A body type. Chubby, skinny, average, toned, etc. *Height, generally. I'm not good at putting a height effect in, but I can try :P *Eye shape. Good to look up a chart for this, too, and choose the one you like. Also say whether or not they're wide-spaced, close-set, or the classic one-eye-apart. Note, though, that Africans/African-Americans tend to have wide-spaced eyes. *Ethnicity. European, African/African-American, Asian, etc... it's good to know, since some ethnicities have different proportions than others. And yeah, Google doesn't think "ethnicities" is a word. I'm not sure either XD *Age. It'll make a difference in heads tall. *Gender. It'll make a difference in features. *Hair color, hair length, and a good description or image example of what it's styled like. *A good description or an image example of what the person wears. *A good description or an image example of what the pose the person is doing is. *If you prefer, it can be done in black-and-white. You don't have to include colors if you want black-and-white. That's all I can think of for that style, so if you think of anything else, please add it in! X3 You can also just use embedded images for all of the areas, if you so wish. If you desire to see my skill level before you request a drawing, I'll be posting an example of each style I do this weekend. Now... for anime/manga. *Essentially the same as realistic, but with the eyes, it's best to provide examples for the shape of the eyes. Anime/manga elements should be included, too :P That's all. If you have some other style I should try, or have some tips on how I can improve, please tell me! ^-^ I already know I need to work on clothing wrinkles for sure, so any help on that is greatly appreciated. (Eventually, over the weekend, I'll make forms for each individual style... And an example of my work in each form.) Oh! Media forms! Here's what I offer, and the time expected... Pencil and paper (Just shading): One day (1-2 commissions), 2-3 days (3-6 commissions), 3-5 days (7-10 commissions), 5+ days (11+ commissions). NOTE: ESTIMATES. Pencil and paper (In color): Same amount of time as the above. Digitally drawn (Longest): Five days (1-2 commissions), it really just depends though. Expect digital ones to take at least a week.

    Kristin, usually, but sometimes they refer to me as "brilliant".   [s:p/1kuk] Ginger is also very common, and some of my internet friends call me Dan/ny. Other internet nicknames blossom from my usernames, such as how I'm often called "Poptart" here on KW.
