A.illusions Gallery: Depart

I don't really know what inspired me to draw this in the first place... But it looks so peaceful nonetheless. And it's one of the rare moments Shijirou actually smiles. ^_^

A.illusions Gallery: You Are Loved

People who are familiar with my work in Mango Jam's "Twilight's Calling" would probably recognize the guys from the Gr8 K8's band, Enzo and AJ. Potato-chan asked me to make a blog banner of her with these two guys, as they were her favorites... I'm glad they had fans since they had very little screen time.

A.illusions Gallery: Lei Suigintou

I drew this for Lei's blog some time ago. I was really into Rozen Maiden at that time, and Lei loved Suigintou the most... so I thought I'd draw her cosplaying Suigintou~

I received this beautiful fan art from Renka-chan, and wow, it just makes me want to improve my own work even more! I really hope I can catch up to her one day!

A.illusions Fanart: "Rei Kuassary" by Mogsa

Thanks, Mogsa! Your anatomy and painting style are amazing! Even when we were in college, you were one of my classmates that I really looked up to! I'll definitely catch up to you one day~ o(*^▽^*)o

A.illusions Fanart: "Rei x Tifa x Lei" by Yukee

Ok, so this might be a little NSFW, just a little.

And oh look! Cutie FF characters! σ(≧ε≦o) Thank you, Yukee-hime!

A.illusions Fanart: "Rei 05" by Lei Miko


Lei is my definitely my number one fan. Thank you Lei-Lei!

A.illusions Fanart: "Wei Wei" by Lei Miko

I think this is Lei's drawing of me, but... Since Rei Kuassary is a representation of me, then this is how she'll look with short hair and while she's wearing contact lenses? Probably? ゚+。:.゚ヽ(*´∀`)ノ゚.:。+゚

A.illusions Fanart: "Tifa 01" by Lei Miko

A.illusions Fanart: "Wei Wei 2" by Lei Miko

A.illusions Fanart: "Wei Wei 3" by Lei Miko

Looking at this fan art makes me realize that I don't really draw Rei in dresses... at all... the closest thing to a dress was a knee-length skirt she wore as a doctor in KARMA. Maybe I should try drawing her in formal attire too.

A.illusions Gallery: Summer Walk

Summer kimonos are known as "yukata". I wanted see how Tiffy and Souji would look if they were in Shijirou's blog in the summer. They're so cute like that... Haha~

A.illusions Fanart: "Naka-iPod." by Tori Avalon

"Naka-iPod. Kaso hanggang picture lang.

Since I don't own an iPod (not even a Shuffle!).

But hey, there are other great gadgets out there that's even better yet cheaper than an iPod! ^^;

A.illusions Fanart: "iTori" by Tori Avalon

Now.. It's my turn to have a wallie~ lol

Original drawing again by Rei-nee~ :D

A.illusions Fanart: "iLei" by Tori Avalon

Here's a wallie that I made for Lei-sempai. I used Rei-nee's a.Illusions manga drawing of lei-sempai, and then Adobe's effing Pen Tool to vectorize.

Check out Rei-nee's manga at kurohiko.com

My first deviation btw~ :D

A.illusions Gallery: Komikon 2005: Rei Kuassary

My contest entry for Komikon 2005! It was a character contest, but I wasn't able to take home any prizes at all. ^^;;;

I miss my old domain, but there are some things in life are just not meant to be. Good thing I was able to get the Blogspot version, right? xD

A.illusions Fanart: "Rei Out" by Shijirou

A.illusions Gallery: Shijirou

I had just received my Wacom and was so excited that I decided to test it out with this image. I don't think I even knew layers existed at the time, and lots of trial and error came about~

I like how this turned out nonetheless. I can see so many errors now, but mistakes are what experiences truly are! I'll just have to keep painting and never give up~

A.illusions Gallery: I Miss You

Anime Illusions sends their Condolences to Tiffy and her family.

May each of you be blessed... forever.

A.illusions Gallery: Being Myself

In the "Lovers' Lane" section of forums, Tifa was paired with Souji, so I made them a couple in the manga as well. They have a weird relationship though, because I have no idea how to make two completely opposite people like each other, haha!

In any case, I made Tifa this banner for her blog. It's just a bunch of artwork from the manga that I put together in a collage banner.

I'm glad Tiffy got to use this for a while. ヽ(=^・ω・^=)丿

A.illusions Gallery: Tori and Danaan

When Tori was working on his school project, he asked for my help regarding some illustrations. I think he needed to make his own website at the time, but he never did get to show the end result to me. ^^;;;

I still hope you were able to get a good grade, Towee~ *o*

CrossOver: Colored Lei and Haro

And this is the colored version of Lei and Haro! Since Lei's uniform is blue-violet, I decided to give her an orange haro.

I think I colored this in the office, so it was done very quickly. I still love how it turned out though... it looks as if it had been airbrushed~ :3

A.illusions Gallery: And So She Returns


When I was still working for a Hong Kong company, updates became so erratic that I had to hold long term hiatuses. Working too hard ruins creative endeavors, honestly... but that's just how it is sometimes. ^^;;;

Just as long as you live a life with no regrets, because we only have one life to live.

CrossOver: Mizu no Arrow

This is the spell card I used in our forums. I wanted to make a bunch of these, but I only had one chance to make my move before the thread was shut down...

Maybe I'll still make there "fake cards" when I get the time. ^_^;;;

CrossOver: Lei-Lei Explains

When our forums had the Yu-Gi-Oh! fever, we decided to make our own cards to make things more interesting. I decided that I should use my own webmanga, A.illusions, for my cards.

This trap card forces the opponent to reveal each new card he draws. It was quite effective when I was dueling against Machie-nii~ :3

CrossOver: Kanririn Shijirou

My very own "monster" card for our forum game! I made him both water and spellcaster because that's what he's like in the manga.

You can still see the manga panels peeking from the card's photo. I need to find my old template of this so I can make one for each character.

...hm, now there's an idea.

A.illusions Gallery: Megane wa Doko?

I had actually drawn this while I was at work one day... I was an hour early, so I turned on the AC, lights, and made coffee for everyone. Even though I had my cup of coffee, I was still feeling a little sleepy. That prompted me to draw this on scrap paper.

I then sneaked it into the office scanner and colored it... I finished long before boss came and caught me, haha~

A.illusions Gallery: Act One - Second Stage

This represents the moment when Rei goes from one forum to another. I wanted it to look like she was going through a matrix with hexagonal controls to choose her destination.

Of course, not everyone can go through forums this way... this is just her. ^_^

A.illusions Gallery: Don't Mess with Us...

When Tori gets a little carried away with his jokes, he brings out the "very scary" side of me... ^^;;;

I remember we use to have these "100 hit combo" moments in the chatroom. Those were very carefree days I miss... Everyone grew up and went on with their lives. It's a sad, painful truth.

Perhaps one day we will meet again~

Azuzu looks so pretty! 《《o(≧◇≦)o》》 and I have a bias for short-haired girls! ヽ(〃・ω・)ノ

A.illusions Gallery: Chase

When I told Tori he could update my manga for me while I was away, I didn't really expect to see something like this.

I was completely surprised~ And for the record, I really liked it... even though I lost a few readers along the way. xD;;; Haha~
