King Arthur and Jeanne d'Arc

I don’t know why I drew these two together… They’re not even from the same Fate series!

I decided to finish this up so I can concentrate on drawing manga again. I’m feeling pretty lost at the moment, so my productivity levels have been MIA for the past 3 months. I think I feel a little better now? I’m not 100% yet, but I’m getting there.

I used photos of clouds and concrete flooring for the background. Lately, I’ve been taking a lot of photos different textures. It’s fun to use your own photos for your artwork~

I’ve also restarted my pixiv account! I’ll be posting mostly fan art there from now on, since original characters don’t really get much attention anyway.

I should be sleeping. Hngh...

Now that the contest is over, I guess we can write about this now.

Hello★Hello Silent Manga by RAYKOSEN and KUROHIKO

Hello★Hello really pushed me to my limits, since I had to attend to some personal matter while I was working on this collaboration. It also taught me how much sleep I was willing to sacrifice just to meet a deadline… it’s been a while since I stayed up 36 hours straight!

In the end, we were only part of the Award Candidates list. I feel very sad and dejected, but at the same time, I also know that I can do even better. Raykosen was really a voice of encouragement during the final hours of this contest, and I’m grateful he entrusted this story to me.

I don’t know if I want to go through this again, but never say never! Overall, it’s still not bad for a first try! Please read this in SMAC and let us know what you think!

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~ (^^*)
