Kurama in Love

Ah~~ First Love, ain't it grand? (´ ∀ ` *)

I made this wallpaper last year for Valentine's Day, and I still like it for some reason. :D That girl beside him is Kitajima Maya, the controversial "girlfriend" during his younger years. Kurama erased her memories including her love for him back in their junior high days because of a certain incident, and I thought it was about time they got back together, don't you? (´ ∀ ` *)

The coloring was way too rushed on this one, but I like the effects that came from it though. Hope you guys like it too. (* ^ ω ^)

EDIT: For those who want the wallpaper, it's listed among [link] You will find it here: [link] But please visit the website also. (* ^ ω ^)

Agedashi Menu

agedashi japanese restaurant menu cover by kurohiko

Probably the last of the Agedashi Characters... (╥_╥) So sad...

This is the cover for the new Menu Agedashi made when they decided to have Korean dishes served along with the Japanese ones. I kinda like the way this is composed. (* ^ ω ^) But I think the guy looks more like a baker than a chef, ne? Not that it matters much... (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡

Hope you guys like it. (´ ▽ `;)

The Agedashi Signboard ver.02

agedashi signboard ver 2 by kurohiko


This signboard was never made. I preferred this design over the first one, but I guess the lack of funds made the owners decide to cancel the project. It's such a shame though, I think this one's pretty cute with the chibis and all...

Hope you guys like it. (@^◡^)

The Agedashi Signboard ver.01


You can't design a restaurant without a signboard now can you? (* ^ ω ^)

It's not much to look at, but I still love the simplicity... even if it is only a signboard.

Hope you guys like it anyway... (*´▽`*)

Agedashi - 7 of 7

The last of the Seven Scrolls for Agedashi Japanese Restaurant. (≧▽≦)o

Here's the female mascot again, this time with the restaurant's logo. No, that is not a chocolate cake, contrary to popular demand. (´ ▿ `;) That's actually an Agedashi Tofu (a Japanese dish of fried tofu with a thick sweet sauce, quite tasty and unique).

Well, I have nothing more to say about thhis project except that it was a lot of fun. I have other materials from this restaurant to show you guys, but that will have to wait till I find them from the CDs. (*¯︶¯*)

Hope you all like it. (´ ∀ ` *)

Agedashi - 5 of 7

Ah... The 5th scroll of 7 series. What happened to 2-4 you ask? Well, they're more on photography rather than paintings, so I decided to skip them (aside from the fact of course, that my photography skills are still not up to par). (´ ▽ `;)

So, here's the guy mascot for Agedashi Japanese Restaurant. It was actually a funny thing that led me to create a guy mascot. The initial plan was to have only one mascot, then one logo. But one of the requests recieved from the restaurant, went something like this:

"Ok, so you got a bishoujo for the guys to drool on, a kawaii tofu of some sort for the kiddies, but now bishounen for the girls?! That's insane!!!"

So, after everyone finished being "o.o!!!" over the suggestion, we decided to have 2 mascots. I like the way this bishounen turned out. Even his expression is not half-bad.

Hope you guys like it... er... him!

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. ^_^
