It's Just Business

Since we were working on Crystal Shadows until the very last minute, I had to squeeze drawing panels in between personal and business matters. (;*△*;) Even though I’ve already switched to digital in order to save on paper, some of the pages featured in Studio 4 Eyes Volume 3 had to be sketched on paper so that I can ink them later on my PC.

I sometimes write the dialogues on the panels during sketches to make sure they fit where they should. This particular panel of Dylan came out pretty nicely, but I think I was feeling a little hostile that day. ( ≧Д≦) Dylan is a nice guy, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t swear. I don’t really remember why I wrote that there, oh well, I thought you guys would appreciate this anyway. (シ_ _)シ

Alrighty then, time to hibernate for a bit. (。-ω-)zzz

Crystal Shadows: Jeremy and Erin – Lego Version

When my nephew gave me a lego set of My Melody for Christmas, I got addicted to making this little figures out of tiny, plastic blocks. (* ̄m ̄) I later found out that there was a My Little Twin Star set and thought they looked really similar to Jeremy and Erin, except that Lala had longer hair.

So this is an unofficial Crystal Shadows Lego Figure. (* >ω<) They now sit in front of my monitor to remind me that I should continue working on this series even when there is no Komikon to cram for.

I should really get back to work, and yet I keep posting this random things in my site. Ahaha! (*≧▽≦)

Summer Komikon 2014 Aftermath

Another Komikon has come and gone and I’m happy to report that Studio 4 Eyes has successfully released its third issue at the Summer Komikon 2014 Indie Tiangge! Book 3 is officially sold out, and we didn’t even get to keep our own personal copies! Good job everyone! But please, let’s not do this cramming thing again, ok? It’s like we’re getting worse with each passing issue! Oh the horror of more sleepless nights!!!

I’m a little sad that the Indie Tiangge scene is getting smaller with each passing event. I suppose getting separated from the main event hall played a big part in this, since foot traffic was also pretty small in comparison. But hey, we’re getting free tables at a major event, so how can we really complain? We’ll just have to work harder in earning enough funds for the next even so that we can grab ourselves a table – right, guys?

Shiraishi Brothers Contest Entry

“Kyoto, plz…”
”NUU! Dun wanna!”

Drawn for pindanglicious contest!

When I was stressed out over family matters a few weeks ago, I found out about this contest about two perverted brothers. I wasn't sure if I could even finish this because of that super detailed shirt... but drawing the pattern calmed me down when I was ready about ready to give up on... well, everything.

Now it's finally finished. I don't want to draw patterns manually ever again, hahaha!

Good luck everyone!

Counting Stars…

I wish I can finish all my deadlines. o(TヘTo)

I actually found this star while walking around a park (or was it a sight-seeing area?) in Canada. It was just the pendant, so I guess the chain broke? I asked around if someone had lost it, but no one claimed it from me. I wonder if I scared them off? (;*△*;)

I had forgotten that I had this until recently… then I remembered Aly and Enjelia’s manga, “Nine Stars”. It’s in Tagalog, but I thought I’d translate it anyway.

May all your wishes come true. ヾ(。・ω・。)
