Sailor Moon Crystal: Tuxedo Uranus & Sailor Moon

I read about a Sailor Uranus’ “Tuxedo Kamen” form, but I never really got to see any evidence of it until very recently. When I was still quite young, and lesbian relationships were pretty much non-existent to me, I used to believe that Uranus was a man in her past life. This idea came from a flashback scene from the original Sailor Moon anime. I distinctively remember seeing Sailor Uranus in a tuxedo, rather than a princess’ gown, while she was standing beside Neptune.

I guess that made it seem natural for me that Uranus would flirt with girls and is extremely close to Neptune. My innocent brain made a story all on its own, I suppose? Is it still considered GL (Girls’ Love) or yuri when one was a boy in her past life?

I don’t necessarily “ship” Uranus with Moon, but I’ve been thinking about drawing this illustration for quite some time. You see, this was originally for Miss Nica, the voice actress of the Philippine dubbed version of Sailor Uranus. But life happened, so her birthday gift is way too delayed. Hopefully, she will still like it anyway~

Time for bed~ Drawing girls really do make a cheerful picture~

微微一笑很傾城 (Just One Smile is Very Alluring): 一笑奈何 (Yi Xiao Nai He)

“If I knew there would be a day when I would love you this much,
I would definitely fall in love with you at first sight.”

Misaki-taichou has, quite literally, destroyed my sleeping schedule by pestering me to read this “short” Chinese novel. It had 48 chapters and a few side chapters, and I read chapter 2 until the end in about 24 hours, thinking it was actually “short”!

Needless to say, I fell in love with the way-too-perfect-to-be-real 肖奈‬(Xiao Nai) who is actually the number one player in Dreams of Jianghu, 一笑奈何(Yi Xiao Nai He)! My advice to everyone who wants to read this book, please do not try to start when you are about to go to bed… Unless you don’t want to sleep? Or not have the ability to do anything the following day? Yeah…

I wish I had a Nai He of my very own~ (^^*)

HBD Weirdo Jackie!

I was hoping I could post this at a better time so that more people could see it, but life has other plans.

Anyway, Happy Birthday one again, Weirdo Jackie! This is his character (who is also an anime version of himself) from his manga, “Kisapmata: EDSA”! Misaki-taichou got his friends together to make a scrapbook for his birthday, which I think is really sweet, even if I do find Jackie really, really weird.

I’m not sure if I got the weapon right, but I couldn’t color this since the requirement was “black and white only”! I wanted to add tones too, but I was trying to beat a deadline at the time.

(I failed to beat said deadline, by the way, haha!)

Anyway, I hope you’re happy, Weirdo! XD

Kurohiko's ART SUMMARY 2015

It’s time for my annual art summary! And for this year we have…

KARMA: Chapter 3 – Epilogue (unpublished); My Facebook Boyfirned… for REAL?! Novel #5; My Facebook Boyfriend… for REAL?! Manga Adaptation #2; CELESTIA #1; Trese Fan Art; CELESTIA #2 (unpublished); *Secret Project* (unpublished)

I’ve drawn the most number of manga pages this year than any other year of my career! I consider that as an accomplishment since I draw so slowly…

For 2016, I want to learn how to let go of not being able to draw too much detail, and to not draw perfectly, so I can be faster. I know I check and double check way too many times, which slows down progress overall! I blame it on my OCD with hair and faces and anatomy and everything else!

Although there is a bit of improvement with my speed, I need to be even faster! I know the clock is ticking away at my career, especially considering my current circumstances… but I think if my speed improves, I can keep drawing for another year or two!

I want to draw Crystal Shadows again too… It was supposed to be a short series, but these long hiatuses are turning it into a long running one!

Anyway, thank you everyone for your continued support! I will keep doing my best and improve a lot more next year! See you again in 2016!

P.S. This is my Facebook Page’s banner again too! Please visit me there as well! Thank you!
