Once more, my memory is going down the drain. -.-;; I complete Twin Whites while back, but never got down to posting it. Well, it's still winter in places blessed with having four seasons, so I guess it's still relevant in some way! (To think I wanted to make the entire piece Christmas instead of winter themed ><.) While this is long overdue, I managed to finish it before the term started! :D I wanted to make it a little more complex but only managed to get the clouds drawn before I got tired and a tad annoyed >< (overall, I think I spent more time on the clouds than with the rest of the piece on a whole). Anyway, before I rant/rave on, here it is!


As I've mentioned in one of my earlier posts, after watching RotG, I found myself drawing quite a few parallels between the protagonist, the playful Jack Frost, and my favourite Hetalia character, Gilbert Beilschmidt. Of course the most obvious similarity is rather evident -- a lovely head of silver, a cheeky disposition, older sibling (who is I dare say, rather protective of their younger siblings), and if I push it a little, adorable pets (re: Baby Tooth took a liking to Jack, and the ever lovely Gilbird) and similar outfits (which was what I tried to showcase in this piece). 

This is the first time I'm doing a crossover attempt, and surprisingly, also my sole attempt at trying to draw Gil darling properly /is fail. I was unfortunately either never inspired enough to do a solo piece of him, or was so painfully lacking in the technical skill to draw military garb that I end up too discouraged to attempt. Either way, his Halloween outfit is more within my range of ability (hoodies and jeans? Comfy and chic! :D), so why not? The branch idea was inspired by Jack always flying and whizzing around in the night sky in the movie, so I wanted to try drawing the moon in the background :D. Also, the silver of the moon works well with the atmosphere doesn't it? Yea, the branches are not really realistic in terms of structure, but for the sake of variety and dynamism, let's just go with it shall we? Finally, I had ton of fun colouring this piece! :D Tried a new style for the clouds to make it a tad more 'shiny' for a little more realism, but wasn't confident enough to try it for the foreground yet. (Baby steps yea?) Overall, I'm kinda pleased with how this turned out! <3

So another piece I've been working on is for Katsuya's birthday~ (Today! :DDDD Happy Birthday darling~) Yes, I said 'working on' so it's still a WIP, but hey, I'm putting more effort into this piece so it justifies it being late... Right? OTL I wanted to try something new this time (re: my usual omg 1 character in a cool pose with rhyme or reason behind it kinda pieces), so I'm going to try a mini comic! The last time I did this was wit When Darkness Falls a personal comic that isn't posted online cause of quality reasons :X, and discontinued a while back), and even so the strips are usually like 3-4 tiny frames at most. This isn't some massive 10-frame thing but I did try to vary the perspective a little more in lieu of all the doujins I've been reading (xD), so hopefully it makes sense! :D Here's the nearly completed version~ Just literally a couple more frames and I'm done!

:D )

Katsuya looks kinda weird (I still have no idea how his hair works, so it looks different each time), and admittedly the perspective is a tad strange for the last panel, but hey! At least I'm trying something new huh? :D And 'sides, I'm rather happy with the 3rd frame, especially since it isn't fully referenced! /o/

Until I finish Katsuya's birthday piece! Sorry for not finishing it in time dearie! ;A; It's the thought that counts right? ^^;;

I should've been asleep hours ago, but bleh, who dictates when inspiration strikes? I've been planning to draw for weeks after my finals but bleh, only found time in my self-made schedule to do so today OTL. That said, it's mostly my own fault for wanting to play all my games. In a row. Nonstop. >< And when I finally feel like drawing, I'm either a) too tired b) too engrossed in my game(s) c) inspired to do something else as well. What finally made me draw was the movie "The Rise of the Guardians", featuring Chris Pine as Jack Frost (aka Prussia lookalike :'D)~ The fangirl in me was overwhelmed with both Jack and Gil thoughts and feelings since yesterday (watched it with [livejournal.com profile] daemon_angelus :D), and after sleeping the entire day away (well, I woke at 1pm, and napped again from 2-7pm...), could only find some quality 'me' time to draw after bro slept a couple of hours ago. @_@ Anyway, here's a rough WIP of the two snowy bishies! :D

Messy sketch is messy )

I was going to make them fully symmertrical but I got lazy, and then figured practising more dynamic movements is a better choice :D. Not sure if I want to clean it up and colour it in proper since well, my games are still unfinished; let's just see if my inspiration will carry me through it xD.

Shall head off before my incoherence embarasses me further through some form of faux pas I'm otherwise not known for. Hope the Sandman fills our nights with golden dreams~ :D

Has it really been that long since I've last posted? =/ Sure doesn't feel like it... After the whole Freshie Fair thingum + the start of school, I've barely enough time to surf the net randomly, let alone draw/write. Which is terrible since I was so certain I could at least do a proper piece of either per month... Excuses aside, since it's 'recess week' (i.e. the week during which you slave away revising because you didn't understand a crap which was taught in the first half of the semester), I decided to break the dry spell!

Heh!


Fooled ya didn't I? :P That's the 2nd half of the TDN requests I took during the summer holidays. Yes, I've only gotten around to uploading them now, despite finishing them a week into this semester :X. I'm efficient ain't I?

Kidding aside, I did start on a new piece (for real!) earlier today. It was sort of an on and off sketch turned into a potential piece which I decided to clean up. :D

WIP! )

Sleep beckons~

Like puppyshipping and the fuzziness it gives me.

So I'm having an identity crisis (no, it's not because I turned 20 :P) which made me question if I can hold on to some things forever. Assuming I live till 70, 50 years is a LONG time. It's half a century for crying out loud! It pains me to say but, one day, time will cause me to finally lose interest in some things I hold close to my heart. Which means, I ought to try as hard as I can to make sure I enjoy them all now, and pray that this additional effort will allow me to hang onto them just a little longer.

Since I've just written a piece not too long ago, I decided it was time to draw and create some graphics. I didn't really know what graphic I want to make in the first place, but after sifting through a bunch of my old Neopets related graphics, I decided to make a 'shop blog'-esque thingumajig to place on my profile page here. Afterall, as [livejournal.com profile] daemon_angelus had mentioned to me before, I can just dump whatever info I have into that graphic, beautifying my profile page without changing the original text. The only problem was selecting an image to work with... I was too tired to skim through my mountain of image files so I decided to draw something instead xD. So that's drawing out of the way; killing two birds with one stone!

Katusya and Seto~


Why Katsuya and Seto? Because the title of this blog pertains to the both of them xD. While that's true, the main reason was because they make me want to write, and write well; they allow me to explore situations and scenarios I'd otherwise never write about; they provide a creative outlet for me to be as crazy as I want to be without others judging me. For that, they'll always be my OTP of all time. <3 Just thinking about them makes my heart race QwQ. And I hope that'll never change.

Not inked (as usual because I'm lazy) but slightly cleaned up so it looks presentable. Oh, and by WIP, I meant that I've not coloured it, not so much of a full body drawing because... I can draw headshots best? OTL Didn't want to put both of them front-facing and side by side because... That's boring, and not to mention typical of me. So I tried a different pose for Seto (because his hair is a LOT easier to draw from other angles) but kinda failed (the proportions still look a little odd to me...); but that said, I'm kinda happy with how Katsuya turned out! I mean, I sketch Seto all the time, but I've only attempted sketching Katsuya once or twice despite the latter being my real favourite of the series. Why? His hair. I don't get how his hair works at all. I sorta know the general shape but everyone draws it differently! I just know it's a pain to draw. -.-;; After spending quite a while searching for a nice reference picture of his hair, I gave up and decided to semi-free style it. Thankfully I did that because it made drawing Katsuya more of a joy than a pain. So yes, I'm happy with how this piece turned out! \(´▽`)/

Will probably colour this first before I start coding the shop blog thingum. In the mean time, I should re-familiarise myself with coding...

Bleh. It's 4am again, and I'm still not asleep DDDDD:. This is becoming a REALLY bad habit. And not to mention I had insomnia last night too... OTL. Anyway, I did not managed to finish today's drawing challenge which was Favourite Movie because...
- I had a whole slew of wonderfully memorable movies to pick from, causing me to spend quite a while pondering as to which I'd give the honour to.
- After settling on one, I had to go look for reference pictures.
- I ended up being sucked into a world of gorgeous fanart and slash/random pairings for the movie. Of which I must admit, some have managed to win me over xD.
- I usually take a lot longer to draw a character which I've never sketched/drawn before (duh).
- I procrastinate. A LOT.

xD So that's my lame list of excuses yeap! But I've a WIP of the soon-to-be up (I hope) picture!

Guess who she is!

I do like how this is coming along xD. I've never drawn hair like hers before so xD. It was great fun to do! I couldn't find good reference photos of the outfit so I just took a couple of fanart here and there and tried to weasle (heh) out similarities and tossed them into the picture. The skirt was another fun part too haha! I still struggle with hands/fingers and feet so... @_@ I think I redrew them like a million times or something... I should just draw headshots all the time xD. Anyway, off to bed for me @_@;;. I need to learn to sleep earlier...

Ah so it's time to post about my Koi Adoptables! Or soon to come Koi Adoptables rather XD. I actually started on the idea during the last couple of days in 2009 but just got down to finishing the basic Koi along with doing one in another colour during the past couple of days in Jan 2010. I started out with a sketch and posted it on the neoboards for comments since the people there are (hopefully) going to be the ones adopting. The feedback was generally positive to I went ahead with the idea and did up a coloured version. Posted that up too, along with a thread in TDN forums and once more most people liked it (or were just trying not to hurt my feelings and be polite about it). After a day of slacking off and just stalking other artists for requests on the neoboards, I've decided to try and create a different coloured Koi to see how much work that'll take. So I ended up finishing up a Blue Koi at 1+am last night (or morning rather). It doesn't look half bad so there! I'll probably do the rest slowly I guess and probably the basic coloured ones first. So hopefully, it'll be a wonderful addition to my future petpage for Meia! :3

Sketch posted up for the neoboards to see.

Completed basic Red Koi!

Completed basic Blue Koi!





There were more intermediates but hey, I don't think it's necessary to post every single one of them seeing that there are not much changes in the first place. Not to mention they are too messy for the eyes of others XD. The adoptables will not have the watermarks when up but since I've not done the complete collection and posted them up, watermarked them to prevent thieves from posting them up first and claiming credit. -.-. Anyway, off to dinner, I've guests over. Hopefully I'll be able to do another coloured one by tonight! :D

Yay! I've finally gotten down to doing some Bleach fanart! With my obsession with my top 3 bishies, I've decided to do *le gasp* chibis!!! Since I can hardly draw them, I thought this might be a good time to practice. My style of course (my chibis are otherwise epic fail). So here's a sneak preview to my first chibi :). I might just do a range of them O_O. For Gotei 13 at least. Inking's a little off but meh. It shouldn't be too obvious when coloured in. I could have sworn it was cuter on paper. -.-

Mwhahahaha! >:D


I've always wanted to do a 'vandalised' sneak preview! XD You should still be able to see it and all but mwhahahaha. My forum friend suggested that for fun and for watermark purposes O_O. So I decided to give it a shot. I'll probably touchup the lineart a little more or something next time. XD Anyway time to sleep! @_@ No idea when I can colour it though -.-.

Teaser

Here is a teaser for my my new graphics website layout! (Dancing Swirls) It seriously needs a revamp before it dies. And not to mention I am in a graphic-ish mood these days.

Spent most of the day designing and coding it. There are still some minor errors and unfinished areas, not to mention making of supporting graphics... Anyway, just a screenshot for those who are curious. Not my best but oh well, I am trying a new type of design. Did I mention CSS based too?



I had to redo the darn background for the textarea as I realised that since it consisted of both light and dark shades of blue, I couldn't find a shade of blue which would fit into the textarea visibly. Pathetic no? The text there is some crap copied and pasted from I-can't-remember-which website. Anyway, spent another 15 minutes redoing it and yes, it is almost 3am now. I am gonna get killed by my mum tomorrow.

The new layout won't be up for a while, I am redoing most of the site and adding a lot of new pages. So stay tuned!
