Commission: MDZS - Fated


This came out better than I expected. (^^*) I was very worried about taking this commission because I haven't seen Mo Dao Zu Shi (Grand Master of Demonic Cultivation) or The Untamed, so I don't know anything about the characters... (╥﹏╥)

It's a good thing I have friends who have seen the show and are passionate fans, ehe~ I didn't have to do as much research as I thought! Thank you Kristine and Pau!

Okay, on to the next commission! (๑•́ ₃ •̀๑)

Commission: Kittara Self-Portrait


My first commission in a very, very long time! And I gotta say, this took me longer than I expected it to because... oh my goodness, the amount of details Kittara has on her costume is amazing~!! I completely fell in love with the design, so I wanted to take my time with it... Bonus points on how it came out pretty much how I imagined it in my head!

I only uploaded the smaller version so some of the details may not be as clear, but I really liked drawing those peacock feather earrings!

Anyway, thank you for the support, as always! On to my next piece!

Madame Secretary Masako


Lots of things have been happening lately~ Many good things, actually..! But I wanted to finish this before I disappear again, ehehe!

I think this is one of the most popular requests from that meme. I do love how Masato looks as a secretary... I mean, look at those legs!

Not sure when I'll get the time to make another one of these, but this is definitely not the last of them..! Stay tuned!

"I Love You Pre" Now on MediBang


A few days ago, I decided to enter Medibang's Shonen Shoujo Manga Contest with "I Love You Pre". I figured that since I don't really have the time and money to make this into physical books, then I might was well post the whole thing online for people to read.

I thought it was going to be a simple translate and post, but I spoke to a friend about this and he had other ideas. He told me that if I wanted a chance at winning, then I had to edit a lot of pages and redraw a couple more.

I... was shocked. (゚д゚;)

We debated for weeks and the amount of work I put into this new version lasted for almost a month..! I wasn't even able to finish everything in his list, but I dare say, this is 20x better than the first version! Having another set of eyes really makes a difference!

If you're interested in reading ILUP, please click here~ Please don't be shy in letting me know what you think of this piece and if you guys are interested in seeing more.

It would be nice if people who bought the first book can find this... I did promise them that the second book would be released in the following Komikon, but... life got in the way, as usual. Hopefully this online version will make up for it all~

Cheerleader Cecil(ia?)


Sort of a challenge, sort of an art trade... and she turned out more beautiful that I had imagined.

I'm a little shocked. ; ̄ロ ̄)

Again, I blame YanYan for this... I'm not sure if this is a cross-dressing Cecil or a gender-bent Cecil (Cecilia?), but whatever, s/he is pretty. Piercing green eyes too...

Crystal Shadows - Episode 5: I'm Sorry...


Episode 5: I'm Sorry... is now available on LINE Webtoon! I really like how this turned out... I wanted to show more of Dylan's feelings through the art more than written words, and I think it worked out pretty well!

I'm trying to relearn how I was able to draw so many colored panels in such a short amount of time before... and I gotta tell you, it's not easy at all..! Even relearning how to draw Dylan's hair is a little challenging at this point! Maybe I'm way out of practice...

Please give this series a read in LINE Webtoon! Thank you very much!

Happy Birthday, Ai!


Happy birthday, Ai-chan! I almost uploaded this on February 28th by mistake because the Facebook Group I'm following has its time set to Japan's Time Zone! So it's still February 28 in the Philippines when your birthday arrives! (´∀`;)

I love your unique, angelic voice~ And your color scheme is one of my favorites among all the boys in UtaPri~ I hope you will continue to surprise us with new music styles and acting roles~ That goes for your seiyuu as well! I wish for you lots of cake and happiness on your most special day! Happy birthday! (´ε` )♡

Basahin


Indie Komiks Manila, a Facebook group I'm a member of, has decided to make "campaign posters" over the next few weeks. I wanted to participate in that campaign while I prepare for Crystal Shadows' new chapters, and I think this turned out pretty well~ (๑>ᴗ<๑)

By the way, "basahin" means "read it" in Tagalog. (๑•́ ₃ •̀๑) So please read our stuff, ehe~ ღゝ◡╹)ノ♡

Draw Your Friends' OCs in Your Style


This was a lot more challenging than I thought it would be. I thought it would take me a day or two at most, but it took 4 days..! I think I may have had too much fun drawing them all, and I'm glad it turned out pretty well.

Here's hoping the people who actually own these characters will love them too. (>< *)

If you'd like to give this a try yourself, you can find the template in Rios Benny's Deviant Art.

Happy Birthday, Ren!


Happy birthday to the man whose voice never fails to distract me from getting my Ultimate Combo in Shining Live!! I love you enough to want to cosplay you, but I'm also cautious of your passionate, flirtatious ways. May you and all of Starish have many more birthdays to come~

Happy Valentines Day~! (≧∀≦*)

Yes, I'll Marry You


This is just eye candy for myself... (๑•́ ₃ •̀๑) Please don't read too much into it... I know most of UtaPri fans ship Otoya with Tokiya, and Haruka with Tokiya, but...

I love them, and I love this very much... So~ Happy Valentines month~! (*≧▽≦)

Marry Me?


So. A certain someone, whom we will call YanYan, is making wedding art for her OTP. I mused on the idea of Otoya and Haruka getting married... and you know what YanYan said?
"Oh mannnnnn Otoya in a nice and neatly styled hairrrr"
And so... this happened. Not super neatly styled, but... I think I melted a little.

Happy Birthday, Camus!


Happy birthday, you majestic piece of... sugarcane! (≧∀≦*) While I will never understand why your fans love being called "peasants", I must admit, you captivated me first among all of the members of Quartet Night. There is a prince-ly air about you that commands absolute attention, and I hope I was able to show that in this fan art.

Happy birthday, Camus~ May you have many more birthdays to come~ (・ω・)b

OC Creator Meme


So there's this thing circulating in Facebook: An OC Creator wherein the character's appearance, name, and even their personality is decided by the people who comment on your post.

I decided to give it a go, and somehow, I feel like I was trolled..? (´ー`) Oh well, I did my best to depict red skin and strawberry hair, and it turned out surprisingly well? No so sure about drawing him naked, but I'll cross the bridge when I get there.

In any case, this character's description is not completed yet, so he has no name. If you'd like to participate, head on over to my Facebook post and comment away!

Kurohiko's ART SUMMARY 2018

2018 will forever be known to me as the year of webtoons. I had to end my first popular webtoon with Enjelia earlier that year so that she could focus on her project... later, I launched Crystal Shadows as a webtoon, and then entered Apteral into the webtoon contest!

I pretty much failed more than I succeeded, but... Overall, it has been an amazing and wonderful ride. I have learned much more in the past year than compared to any of my other years as a manga artist. I don't know what 2019 will bring, but I do know that I want to keep trying for as long as I can.

Thank you all for the love and support! And if you'd like to try out this meme yourself, check out the original template by roika-elfili on Deviant Art.
