WIP: “I Refuse to Answer Such an Ill-Mannered Question!”

As I mentioned before, I’m opening a few slots for commissions on Deviant Art, and Kittara was so quick to hire me that I had to work on this as soon as possible! :3

work in progress - katrina

It’s a good thing I’ve recently watched Kimi ni Todoke (thank you, Misakichan~ ♥). I have no idea how to draw a “flustered” expression, but Kuronuma Sawako did a ton of that in the anime. xD It made studying expressions for this piece a lot easier than I anticipated. ;p

I might change the colors a little bit, because I want Cherry Blossom trees for the background. Then again, brown and pink do make a lovely combination too.

Guess we’ll have to see! ♥

Don’t Blink

My 10th Faux Screen Shot! ♥ Woohoo~~

I’m not sure what it is about “Curtains for Hire” that’s captured my interests, but it’s probably because Eldrin is a bespectacled-cutie~ ♥ What can I say? I still have megane syndrone.

Just a little gift for Miss Joanah Calingo, the creator of “Curtains for Hire” and “Cresci Prophecies”. ♥ Also, a little break for me from all this work I still need to do. @_@;;; Eldrin is so much fun to draw! B-but why… I think I made him look evil! TAT;;;

NOTE: Blog is still under repair. >.>;;; Lightbox is not working at the moment… Sorry for the inconvenience! ;A;

Enchanting Melody

When I was drawing this, I was trying to decide what subtitle I should use when Jay Chou’s “Enchanting Melody” popped into my head. Specifically, the falsetto refrain. xD

Ok, so I don’t use the piano keys to decide their fates, but I do use my pen and/or wacom to make my characters do whatever I want. >:3 And that makes Khyle the driver, Rei the head maid, Shijirou the Butler, Yukee the scary maid, and Tori the footman. \o/ Woohoo~ Now to get some real work done! xD

Inspired by Kuroshitsuji and Kaichou wa Maid-sama! ♥

I think I can open commissions soon… I’m running out of funds. TAT;;; Just 5 slots for now, then we'll see from there. :D

Oh, and thanks for letting me know the lightbox thing isn’t working! ._.a I have no idea why, but I’ll try to get it fixed as soon as I can! Sorry for the inconvenience! @o@;;;

Published and Archived

oh no! manga - a.illusions and karma

I can’t believe they’re actually real! >u<;;;

I wasn’t able to stay for very long at the Ozine Fest last April 14, but I was there in time for the premier of A.illusions and Karma! Thank you so much to everyone who bought a copy! I’ll try to stay next time for book-signing and maybe some sketch commissions! >.<;;;

This also means sad news for the webcomic readers. Since this is now published, I need to take down the webcomic as an agreement with the publishers. ;_; I’m so sorry! But maybe it will come back on site again. I didn’t delete the pages after all, I just put them in archive! TAT;;;

Maybe this means I can write that other webcomic I’ve been meaning to for some time now. We shall have to wait and see! Thank you for you continuing support! ♥

By the way, a lot of the published pages of A.illusions has been edited. Mostly with adding shadow tones, while some panels may get to be redrawn. The alpha book contains mostly originals, but if this sells well, then I’m definitely rehashing this series! >u<;;;

WIP: Maido Shitsuji

Some time last year (or was it the year before?), Tori requested that I draw some French maids as a form of fan-service for the guys since I always draw bishounen for the girls.

The result is… not a pleasant experience for Rei:

work in progress 2012.04.13 - maido shitsuji

Not only is she complaining to me about the skirt/dress that she’s wearing, but the fact that it has so many frills is making her want to kill me. xD;;; But hey! They call it fan-service for a reason, no? xDDD I’m dying of laughter while working on this piece so it should turn out alright… somehow~ ♥

I was debating earlier whether or not I should give her that headband since she covers half her face anyway. Now it looks too cute to take it off, ahaha~ ♥ I love torturing my characters, can't you tell? >u<;;;

I’m sorry about not showing up for Ozine Fest today. It was a last minute turn of events that pushed back the release to tomorrow instead. >o<;;; We should be good to go tomorrow! Please come visit me! ♥

Oh・No! Manga Official Release

And now, the moment we’ve all I’ve been waiting for! xD

A.illusions and Karma will be officially debuting on Oh・No! Manga tomorrow at the Ozine Fest in Megamall around 3pm. :D

I’ll try my best to be there, but I don’t think I can stay for very long… Probably for about 2 or 3 hours before I’ll need to get back to work. :3 Please pass by and check out our other titles too! ♥

UPDATE: (2012.04.13; 1:10pm) Due to some technical difficulty, the release will be moved to tomorrow (Saturday) at 3pm. I'll be skipping today's festivities to prepare for tomorrow instead. :) Sorry for the mix up! See you guys tomorrow! ♥

Tears are words that the heart cannot express.

Thank you so much to Kittara, Princess, Tori, Carlo, Mike, Andoyman, Jeni, E-son, Melanie, Ilaw, Joanah, and Satty for giving me a bunch of ideas on how I was going to finish this piece! I’ve decided to jumble it all together and used a sunset to give a warm feeling that something is about to end~ ;_; I think it turned out well, but it somehow makes me very sad when I look at this… TAT;;;

I guess that would also mean that I achieved my goal of portraying the emotion of “sadness”. On to the next emotion! Which should I choose and for whom? @_@;;;

WIP: Tears

work in progress 2012.04.09 - rei's tears

Here that other work in progress that I was talking about. I wanted to try my hand at drawing different emotions, and this is my interpretation of “sadness”.

Rei is almost always seen smiling. I think when the time comes that she is actually really sad or troubled about something, she would still keep smiling. The only way for her heart to cope would be to through her tears.

I’ve got the general idea for this faux screenshot, but not the whole picture. =.=;;; I think I have Rei’s expression, and the mood of a possible night sky, but I have no idea what else to add. I don’t mind adding another character or two somewhere, or maybe a more detailed background, or even falling petals, but I’m stumped!

Someone give me some inspiration please. ;_; Thank you!

WIP: The Gr8☆Princes

I decided to make use of my Facebook page and ask which of the three W.I.P.’s should I share first. :3~ Princess requested the boys from The Gr8 K8 because she’s a fan of my old work, Twilight’s Calling. How could I say no~?

work in progress 2012.04.07 - the gr8 princes

The Gr8☆Princes: Warren, Anthony, Enzo, and AJ ♥

This was actually supposed to be a very easy doodle for my color pencil practice, because I used a reference from Uta no Prince-sama. In the end, I didn’t want the poses to be too similar, so I added a few things here; like Enzo pointing at whatever it is they’re looking at, and Anthony crossing his arms still looking as cross as ever.

I’m actually having some trouble with Warren, because I’ve never drawn his eyes before! I’m not really sure what his pose should be, so he’s the last one I’ll be inking. =_=;;; Maybe I’ll just copy Camus for Warren’s pose and start the coloring process… Unless you guys have any suggestions, of course? :D ♥ Please, please?

Oh! And Enzo is wearing a baller (silicon) bracelet, but I’m also undecided which organization he should be supporting. Red Cross? WWF? K8? xD Suggest away!
