A.illusions Gallery: Act Two

You may have noticed I used the same window as Act One's. I want to keep a certain consistency every time I open a new Act, and I thought the window seemed appropriate.

I have no idea if I'll still feel the same way about the concept when I get to Act Three, but I guess we'll have to wait and see~

Happy Moon Cake Festival

Argh~~ Deviant Art ate my post..! (╥﹏╥) Let me see if I can remember what I wrote...

Disclaimer: The head of Kuromi was traced in Photoshop using the pen tool. People have always been bugging me that Pen Tool is easier that Polygonal Lasso... ☆⌒(> _ <) My wrist hurts now.

The patterns of Usamimi Kamen and Baku on the moon are from existing images from the Anime, "Onegai My Melody". I only copied the pattern there.

The rest? Layout, color, shades, and highlights... were done by me. (b ᵔ▽ᵔ)b

I love Kuromi~ She's pure evil but irresistibly cute that it's genius! ♡(。- ω -)

Happy Moon Cake Festival. (´ ∀ ` *)

Baka Neko Stupid Cat

baka neko stupid cat hello kitty by kurohiko

Working for Hello Kitty does these kinda things to you... (; ω ; )ヾ(´∀`* ) You dream that she kills you, and so you draw yourself killing her...

Or something like that. ( ◡‿◡ *)

This is an illustration I'm planning to use for a multiple author blog... It's part of a revival project thing I want to do, just because I'm the sentimental sort. ( ´ ▽ ` )

Hope y'all like it... Sorry to the Hello Kitty fans out there. I really don't mean any harm...

Well, maybe a *tiny* bit... (*≧ω≦)

Sawachika Eri in a Bottle

sawachika eri clay art by kurohiko

Hrm... ヽ(´ー` )

This is the 2nd clay figure I made... I've only ever made 3 so far... This was a request in exchange for some anime CDs. <( ̄︶ ̄)>

I remember how hard those little red ribbons were to make... {{ (>_<) }} But being OC and all... ┐(シ)┌

Yes, I like making things hard for myself. (´▽`o)

Chibi Eri Sawachika from the anime School Rumble. (≧◡≦) Enjoy!

Youko in a Bottle

yu yu hakusho clay art - chibi youko kurama by kurohiko

As a pair to Kurama in a Bottle, I've been dying to make a Youko one, but never really had the inspiration to do it...

Last night, I saw a bunch of white clay on the side... and thought of Youko... So I scrambled to find a nice bottle for his home, and also found a small piece of stone I picked up from my trip in Canada. And so I let Youko lean on it while he slumbered...

I think he looks cute... (o_ _)ノ彡☆ Tough he can easily be mistaken for Inuyasha... ヽ(*・ω・)ノ

Special thanks to My Spinster for lending me her camera phone. (´ ∀ ` *)

A.illusions Fanart: "Hugs and Ice Cream" by Aly Potato

This is a drawing I made of me and a friend from an Anime Community that I belong to.

I just wanted to draw him and me so there. XD;;

I was too lazy to put shadows so it's a little bland..and the n00b coloring in photoshop. XD


The drawing itself wasn't made entirely by me. I got some help from a friend with some details but the job was mostly done by me. ^_^;

A.illusions Gallery: Goth Eri

Created for Apricot Lovers' Contest. (⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)

That's Eri from A.illusions. It's the first time I drew her in an eccentric kimono... *Apricot calls it a Lolita Kimono so... (・ω<)☆

Good luck to everyone joining! (≧▽≦)o.。.:*☆

EDIT: OMG! She's finished!!!
Eri's very tiny, but you can see her on the upper right of the illustration, sitting on a cloud. (´ ∀ ` *) I may not have won, but I'm still honored she drew Eri! ♡( ◡‿◡ )

A gothic Eri-hime, illustrated for Apricot8585 Fans' contest~

Sadly, I have no idea where Apricot has gone now... I was able to make the top 10 entries, and Eri was illustrated in Apricot's 100, but I didn't save a copy of the image...

I would have loved to add that to the Gifts... but I guess you can never win them all.

2 of 10 - Minamino Brothers

minamino shuichi and minamino hatanaka fan art by kurohiko

Now *this* is a sketch..!

Uhm... (´ー` )

Ok, so it's still not a pure sketch since there are modifications all over the place, including the *very* obvious Photoshop brushes... But it turned out alright... For something that's supposed to be a sketch...

Anyway... (´ ▽ `;)

Shuichi's training a much younger Hatanaka in Genkai's temple... this was before he went to the face off Sensui... He used the memory flower to erase those memories so that Hatanaka can live a normal life after Shuichi returned.

And yes I made that all up. (≧▽≦)

Everything is done freehand with an HB Mongol number 1 pencil on my sketch pad... Then scanned and cleaned and slightly colored in Photoshop~ (*´︶`*)╯♡

Dedicated to Yoko Rieko (✧ω✧) I hope you're not disappointed... (/// ̄  ̄///)

1 of 10 - Genjo Sanzo

genjo sanzo fan art by kurohiko

Uhm... (´ー` )

It started as a sketch... Then after I scanned it and played with it... it looked... inked... So I figured... Might as well... ugh... ヽ(  ̄д ̄)ノ

Very very rushed colors... I did promise a sketch only... But er...

Ah, you guys be the judge... (≧▽≦)o

I'm overall happy with how this came out... Although I think there's something wrong with Sanzo's hair... I was too lazy to correct it though...

Did I make him look Japanese? (*´▽`*) He's suppose to be a Chinese Monk..!

Oh, the Chinese characters mean "Live your life the way you are". It was translated to Chinese by Tiffy's friend... (whose name I forget because I was working on this in the wee hours of early morn) 。゚( ゚^∀^゚)゚。 I believe that's what Sanzo always says, though I can't remember the entire phrase... (*/ω\) If someone would be so kind as to post it, it'll make me a very happy bee... (´ ∀ ` *)

Dedicated to Sayomi-chan
And please don't expect all the other sketches in the series to be like this... I might die... ( ̄▽ ̄*)ゞ

What I Did Last Christmas

kurohiko ID 2007

Like I said, giving my deviant art page a facelift. (* ^ ω ^) Kudos to the people who can guess what I did last Christmas... ╰(▔∀▔)╯

Yes, I actually dressed that way over my office's Christmas party... :o So what I say..?! (o´▽`o)

EDIT: Well, the website is dead, but I've moved the manga from anime-illusions to Blogspot (o_ _)ノ彡☆
