Shiraishi Brothers Contest Entry

“Kyoto, plz…”
”NUU! Dun wanna!”

Drawn for pindanglicious contest!

When I was stressed out over family matters a few weeks ago, I found out about this contest about two perverted brothers. I wasn't sure if I could even finish this because of that super detailed shirt... but drawing the pattern calmed me down when I was ready about ready to give up on... well, everything.

Now it's finally finished. I don't want to draw patterns manually ever again, hahaha!

Good luck everyone!

Characters: Kyoto and Kaito Shiraishi by pindanglicious

Counting Stars…

I wish I can finish all my deadlines. o(TヘTo)

I actually found this star while walking around a park (or was it a sight-seeing area?) in Canada. It was just the pendant, so I guess the chain broke? I asked around if someone had lost it, but no one claimed it from me. I wonder if I scared them off? (;*△*;)

I had forgotten that I had this until recently… then I remembered Aly and Enjelia’s manga, “Nine Stars”. It’s in Tagalog, but I thought I’d translate it anyway.

May all your wishes come true. ヾ(。・ω・。)

W.I.P.: Here Comes a New Challenger!

One who is so frustrated that she’s willing to use Comic Sans on you! “ヽ(´▽`)ノ”

I don’t know why people call me that, lol! (・_・ヾ I mean, I feel like I can’t consider myself to be a professional so long as my time management skills are not up to my standards.

I’m so tired… I just want to sleep. Can I just sleep? _(:3 」∠ )_

Gift: 100

You guys have absolutely no idea how happy this makes me, even if my character is such a tiny little thing in this illustration! (*≧▽≦)

You see, back in 2007, I joined a contest hosted by Apricot8585’s fan club. All participant will get to have their character drawn by the artist, but the top three will be drawn much larger than the rest. I’m very happy to say that Eri caught Apricot’s eye, and she added Eri to her top 10 picks! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ Sadly, I didn’t get enough votes, and I only ranked 6th or 7th at the end of the contest, but I’m still happy Eri is in here! (。´∀`)ノ

I had lost my copy of this art until recently, so I guess we can say this is a Throwback Thursday? Goth Eri is one of the most viewed illustrations in my Deviant Art, and you can find the original illustration here. In Apricot’s work, you will find her sitting on a cloud on the upper right corner. 。◕‿◕。

If anyone here happens to know where Apricot has gone off to on the internet, please let me know, thank you! ヾ(^ ^ゞ

KARMA: An Angel Watches Over You

A series of unfortunate events have been coming my way lately… So much so that I’ve hardly been able to draw much, if at all.

Now that I finally have a bit of spare time, I decided to practice on some coloring before I get back to work.

In the 2nd part of KARMA: Chapter 3, Dominic looked on as Jeremy prayed quietly for Lily as he sat in the waiting area. This is the close up panel of Dominic from that scene. I wanted to show how angels would look out for each other’s “assignments” whenever they’re close by. Dominic didn’t know that Jeremy was praying about his charge, Lily, but that didn’t matter, he still checked up on him anyway.

I’d like to say Dominic hesitated in leaving the distraught Jeremy alone, but I don’t think this no-nonsense angel cold really be bothered to hesitate on anything. Hehehe~!

It makes me wonder though… Can angels hear our conversations with God? Does God let them “listen in” whenever it’s important? I’d like to think they’re private conversations, but I can’t really say for sure. Maybe God relays the message on a need-to-know basis? Hm…

Gift: Peace

More cute fan art from Honey Den aka DarkMotives! 〜(^∇^〜)

I really love this piece very much. This is actually the second version, because the first one Honey drew met with a little accident! (;*△*;) It made me so sad, but at the same time, this one made me so happy! ヾ(*´∇`)ノ

As an exchange, Honey asked me, Enjelicious, and Jeff Nice to pose the same way she drew our characters. We were happy to oblige, although I could have sworn Jeff was a little confused as to why Honey asked us to pose this way. (*≧▽≦)ノシ)) I don’t think he saw this fan art until after we took a photo together.

Here is our photo if you’re curious. Don’t mind our tired faces, we didn’t get much sleep the night before the event. o(TωT;o)

Thanks again, Honey! ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Gift: Oh No~! Darky is Sick!!

It’s fan art friday! ☆* o(≧▽≦)o *☆

Darkmotives has given me a ton of fan art, but it seems I’ve forgotten to post them here! This is one of my favorites from her – it features Jeremy from Crystal Shadows as a doctor! Ooh~ I’d probably have a nosebleed too if he were my physician, teehee! (ノ ̄ω ̄)ノ

Thank you so much, Darky! I’ll definitely be featuring this in the next installment of KARMA! Please check out her original post on Deviant Art! (* >ω<)

Harukanaru Fan Art Sketch

Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I go back to basics and doodle something in traditional form. You just can’t beat the feel of an actual paper-and-pencil sketch! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ It relaxes me and reminds me why I choose this line of work from all else.

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de – Yasuaki, Minamoto no Yorihisa, and Shikigami

I had references from the manga in drawing Yasuaki and his Shikigami, but as for Yorihisa, there were a lot of leaves in his space, so I sketched his pose before looking through a few panels for his hairstyle and clothing. o(≧ε≦o) You could say this is my favorite character ranking? I like Yasuaki a lot, but Yorihisa and Shikigami are both in 2nd place. Shikigami only appeared in volume 17, but I really like his design and personality! And the fact that he can turn into a white fox is a plus too! (*´▽`*)

I really like how the mangaka draws eyes and hair in this series, so I’m studying them by redrawing the characters in my planner. I hope I can finish all seven soon so I can scan it properly! But for now, this will have to do! ヾ(。・ω・。)
