Locadol Philippines: Maya

Pixiv | Deviant Art | Facebook

Pandanggo sa Ilaw is a popular folk dance in the Philippines. It involves balancing 3 oil lamps (or sometimes, candles in glasses) one on each hand and one on the top of your head. This dance of lights imitates fireflies at dusk and at night.

For more information on the dance please visit Tagalog Lang~

Wow, is pixiv ever huge and highly annoying! I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong, but my submission there is pixelated! I tried resubmitting the artwork, but it still comes out the same. I guess I’ll just leave it at that for now. I would have posted a photo but Picasa’s playing tricks with me too! Σ(-`Д´-ノ;)ノ

Featuring our two mascots, Misachan and Suoh in our classic logo and one very limited edition button of Jeremy from Crystal Shadows!

Aww, he noticed it right away! (´ ▽ `♥) Ok, Jeremy, I guess you’ve regained some brownie points. Have a cookie! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ But Dylan is still becoming more adorable than you, hee~! (*^3^)/~☆

Now we’re at the end of the Third Leaf! Uh oh… (o>m<)o I better start drawing the next few pages. Not sure if I can have a few days off to do so as of yet, but we’ll see! I hope you enjoyed the conclusion of the third chapter, however short it may be! More to come soon! ヾ(^ ^ゞ

Coin & Flour Cameo in Karma Chapter 3!

For those who’ve already read Karma Chapter 3 in the Oh No! Manga Anthology, did you happen to notice the cameo appearance of Coin and Flour? Flour even had a short dialogue, but Coin doesn’t seem amused. o(-`д´- 。)

This was colored partially due to Tom’s request, but it’s really a very late birthday present for Jayron. Happy birthday, Mastur~! And I hope you will have many more birthdays to come! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Shingeki no OhNo!

Yupi: I’m treating everyone who’ll stay alive to chocolate ice cream later!
D.Ice: I like how you think, Ohime-sama!
Iinchou: You two can flirt later!

Or something like that! I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time, but I’ve been too busy to do so! I was going to draw Flour so that this will be the same as the cover of our anthology, but Coin refuses to let her fight a Titan! (´ω`♥)

Please take note that this is a paint over from an actual Shingeki no Kyojin screenshot and not completely my own work! Those 3D maneuver gears are a pain… and since the screenshot was so dark, I had to re-draw their legs, so the poses may not be as accurate! ヾ(*≧m≦*)ノ

Oh! And the reason why I flipped the screenshot was because Yupi’s ponytail and hairpin was on her left, so is D.Ice’s earring! (*-`ω´- )人

If you want to try it for yourself, here’s the original screenshot! Enjoy~ ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Reminder: All CS pages are in the Manga tab! *points up*

I bet you didn’t see that coming, did you? (⌒▽⌒)☆

You can see the difference in personality between Dylan and Jeremy in this one page. ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ While Dylan is the overly dramatic type, Jeremy is quiet and straightforward, but they’re really good friends!

Jeremy’s gained a lot of confidence compared to his earlier, elementary years. Mummy’s so proud of you! ヽ(;▽;)

I can’t decide if Jeremy’s a fox or a cat. (o;TωT)o Hehe~

Jeremy, why didn’t you chase after her, darn it? (,,#゚Д゚) What else would that be? Sweat? Blood? Or as Taichou puts it… Saliva?! ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ

Can I just, fangirl a little bit? You know that No Leaf Clover Fan Art I did? Banri saw it and commented on the Vocafusion post! He even shared it on his Facebook! *(*´∀`*)☆ And so did Kei!!! (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

Sorry, but it’s not often that people I draw for actually comment about it. As excited as I am about all this… I suddenly feel really embarrassed too. Maybe I should have spent more time drawing them… But I’m also chasing after a deadline so I will just have to draw them another one. ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

I’m gonna go… finish up work so I can sketch them again, ok? (´ω`★)

No Leaf Clover ♣

A few days ago, I’ve never even heard of “No Leaf Clover”, but I was impressed that Oh No! Manga and Vocafusion managed to invite a Japanese band to the Philippines in time for Cosplay Camp 2. I listened to a few of their songs on YouTube, and I remember thinking, “wow, they’re pretty good!” So good that when I spotted Inai-san walking around alone in the convention, I pointed him out to Ray and asked him to maybe speak to Inai-san so that I can get a quick photo.

That never happened, because the marshals told us to run along… But oh well, what’s a fan to do? Even though we were guests ourselves, there was no way for the Vocafusion or Oh No! Manga staff to know we were guests since we never got our IDs and uniforms.

Nevertheless, I was so happy that I got to hear them live. They weren’t just good, they were very, very good! And even though I had to stay in my table since I was working, I was awestruck… practically teary-eyed when they performed “World’s Edge”!

If it’s possible to fall in love with someone’s music, I think that’s exactly what happened to me last Sunday. Given the chance, I would have bought their CD and waited in line to meet them and take a photo with them, but I was working! I should have asked for a break, but… ah, it is possibly one of my biggest regrets…

And so, in order to stave off a little of that regret, I drew a quick colored sketch for them (I apologize, but I have so many deadlines right now! But even still…) I hope they’ll manage to see this little gift I made for them:

Thank you for coming to visit your fans in the Philippines, and thank you for helping to make Oh No! Manga Cosplay Camp 2 a success! I hope that I will be able to meet you in person one day, and I sincerely hope you enjoyed your stay here!

Oh No! Manga Cosplay Camp 2: The Coin & Flour Saga

oh no manga cosplay camp 2 the coin and flour saga

Just wanted to post the official announcement! There will be a lot of prizes for the drawing and coloring competition, including copic markers and some last minute prizes from our friends in artline!

I will be a lurking photographer there, and for the indie island, I will be bring limited copies of these:

oha-oha! studio 4 eyes 1 and 2!

Since we didn’t have time to print additional copies of Studio 4 Eyes, we’ll be bringing whatever copies we have left from the previous conventions, haha! WE’re not sure how many there are left, but it’s probably about 20? As for Oha-Oha, I think I have about a handful left.

First come first serve at the first island, tables 5-8! See you at the convention!
