Chibi Lei and Cinna-chan’s Christmas

Lei-Lei commissioned me last December for a Christmas label. She made her own gifts last year and wanted to personalize it with a chibi version of herself and her pet, Cinna-chan. (。´∀`)ノ

I think it turned out really well! I especially loved the green santa outfit and how fluffy the lining came out. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) ♫・*:.。. .。.:*・ Cinna-chan looks a little awkward though… I haven’t drawn him in a long time…

I wonder what the recipients thought about these labels? (m*´∀`)m Lol…

Kurohiko’s ART SUMMARY 2014

Another year has come and gone, and I’m happy to say that I had even more manga projects for the year 2014! I’ve learned a lot last year, including being patient with myself, as I’m less industrious than the younger generation of Pinoy Manga Artists! I’ve also realized how much hard work and dedication it takes to go from one manga to the next, not to mention, adjusting styles to better suit the story entrusted to me! (´ω`★)

Most of all, I feel incredibly blessed to have fellow artists as my friends and rivals as we push each other to become even better than we were before. Thank you, Enjelicious, Power-J, and Raykosen! And to my idols, Sir Memer, Sir Ilog, Miss Tepai, Florineil, and Kuru-san, I promise to work even harder so that one day, I can proudly say that we have become rivals!

Let’s go, 2015! I’m ready when you are! O(≧▽≦)O

Gift: Dylan and Erin by Reylee

I was going to schedule this for Friday, but I keep forgetting because I’m still running after a few more deadline before the end of the year! But now that my hand needs a break, I thought that I might as well post this here. (。´∀`)ノ

crystal shadows fan art - dylan and erin by reylee

Heartbeat Komiks is having a free sketch game and I manage to snag a prize during their second week! o(≧▽≦)o I was surprised, because my request for the first week was included too! And now I have a Dylan x Erin fan art..! σ(≧ε≦o) This is one of the pairings I never thought I’d ever consider in Crystal Shadows, but the way things are going in the manga right now, it certainly looks possible!

Thank you very much, Miss Reylee! We’ll definitely feature this in our next issue of Studio 4 Eyes, hopefully coming soon in Summer Komikon 2015! ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦o)

Clash of Clans: Wizard and R.A.B.B.I.T.

My sister and nephew from Canada came to visit us last October. I had heard from my other sister that our nephew was currently addicted to playing Clash of Clans, but I was too busy chasing deadlines to try the game out myself. When I finally did get a break, I was disappointed to realize that my phone was too old to play Clash of Clans.

Nevertheless, my adorable nephew figured out a way to convince me into buying a new phone. Everyday, he would come up to me and ask when I’d buy a new one so that I could play with him. ( ̄■ ̄;)!? I caved, and we shopped for a phone for 3 days until we finally found an ASUS Zenphone 5… and it’s purple too!

Despite my currently very busy schedule, I take the time to upgrade my village every so often and participate in his weekly Clan War. Most of my family are playing this game too, so my nephew decided to give us CoC nicknames… I got “Wizard” simply because he saw how my hair looks in the morning..! (oT-T)尸~~

My nephew also loves to draw, so I bought him a sketchbook and drew on the first page. He requested a wizard with afro hair and his R.A.B.B.I.T. which apparently means “Real Atomic Bomb But It’s Tiny”! щ(゜ロ゜щ)!!!

I tried to draw it as similar to the original as possible, but I was never really good at 3D. Hope you guys like this little sketch anyway! See you in Clan Wars!

WISH*GRANTED – Coming Soon!

I did say I’d show you guys what I was working on, but since the release date has not been set, you’ll just have to settle for this colored panel for now. (。´∀`)ノ This is one of my favorite scenes, but it was definitely hard for me to choose one for my FB cover.

I really love how this story is written! Kkabyulism was so generous to let me do whatever I wanted for the artwork, and I think it turned out pretty well! (o*≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆ This is definitely one of my best works yet, but I still think shoujo style is much harder than shonen, haha~!

Watch out for Louise, King, and Harry in WISH*GRANTED via PSICOM, coming soon to bookstores near you! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ
