KnoVid: A Way Out Parody 2

Not much happening in this page, I guess... but I needed this for pacing purposes. I'm glad Alban has his reference sheet available. It helped a lot when I was drawing in the details... Please LAM-mama, we need Fuu-san's reference sheet too!

Now the bigger question is, when do I get the time to draw the next page. (• ▽ •;)

KnoVid: A Way Out Parody

Trigger Warning: (manga-styled) Blood

Or that could just be spilled ink, I dunno. (・ัω・ั)

I haven't been drawing manga pages for a long time. This is so satisfying! I'm thinking if I should continue this all the way until the actual death scene or if I should just leave it at that.

Fuu-san and Albanyan have very complicated character designs, so drawing them in manga is quite difficult. Well, if I get more time to draw, I probably won't mind continuing the angst. (。ŏ﹏ŏ)

Now to find some Ceasar Salad.

Fulgur Ovid Amigurumi

Now I can call him "Fuu-chan"! ( ꈍᴗꈍ)

This took about a week to finish, and I kinda wish I made him bigger, but this is a nice portable size for when traveling becomes an option again.

May I show off his heartbeat detail on his left eye?

Here is a ¥100 for comparison. Tiny Fuu-chan is a little under 2 inches high? Legs are about an inch length. I used a special yarn for his hair. It's white, but it has a shiny silver strand weaved into it. I added some black stitching to his cyborg arm too.

I need to remember my eyes are getting old... Making tiny amigurumi is making my eyes hurt. (。ŏ﹏ŏ)

Nekopara: Catboys Paradise x Nijisanji EN

This took so long to finish, but it looks so pretty!! ( ;∀;) I'm so happy it's done!!

For those who haven't seen it yet, Mika Melatika did a collab stream with Sonny Brisko, Mysta Rias, Ike Eveland, and Alban Knox. She played Nekopara: Catboys Paradise with Nina Kosaka while the boys voice acted Sage, Laurier, Fennel, and Dill.

It was so perfect... It made me so happy!!

Sonny, Sonny, Sonny!! (人*´∀`)。*゚+ your Sage is so TSKR!! Also when you did the bookseller's voice and it kinda sounded like Vox... I'm so amazed with how many different voices you can do~ I hope we can see Sage's route in the future!

Albanyan, thank you for your version of Dill! You're so adorable, and you made Dill even more adorable, TSKR TSKR!! I'm sorry I drew you a little smaller than everyone else... It's just for this piece, I promise~

Mysta, even though you were making a lot of jokes when you were reading your lines, damn... Whenever you got serious, TSKR, TSKR!! I'd love to hear you read Laurier's route~

Ike, thank you for your version of Fennel!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I loved every single minute! The casting choice was absolutely perfect! TSKR TSKR TSKR!! and we know, you love your caviar more than tuna.

Now I'm off to work~ Have a nice day every nyan! (*´ω`*)

Holostars: Miyabi Hanasaki

Soraille did a quick sketch on Twitter today... I managed to snatch a slot and got a tiny bunny Fuu-chan!! He's so, so, SO CUTE. I'M DYING FROM CUTE-!!

And in return, she asked for Miyabi from Holostars. I haven't drawn in pencil for so long, this just looks messy to me. (・o・;)  I keep looking for the ctrl+Z keys, but they don't have it IRL.

This turned out really cute though... I kinda wanna finish it digitally. Maybe after I finish my current commissions and WIPs...

#voxelebration

Belated happy birthday, Milord! I'm terribly sorry that I'm late, but I did visit your birthday stream... And I'd imagine you had slept very soundly after that, so I drew this~

Thank you for being born in this world. We love you~ and we wish for your happiness for as long as you live. ( ◜‿◝ )♡

Legatus505: the Fruit of Knowledge

"Are these all real?"

"Why wouldn't they be real?"

Legatus505: Chapter 3 - Parasocial in Stockholm

I drew this as a pair with Iris... I initially wanted to take my time with it, but Fulgur announced a Zatsudan stream later, so!

(• ▽ •;) I sketched and finished this in less than 8 hours. What is sleep? (人 •͈ᴗ•͈)

I hope he'll be surprised later! But it's okay if he doesn't see it in time, I'm cutting it super close! Also, I found an interesting brush for painting and used it to color the apple. It looks more realistic than the rest of the piece, and that makes it more eye-catching, no?

I'm going to take a nap... I've lost so much sleep already. ╰(⸝⸝⸝´꒳`⸝⸝⸝)╯

Vox's Sleep ASMR

I was saving this for Vox's birthday, but his karaoke was just.... it was so good. You could tell he put a lot of effort into that, and practically laid bare his emotions... Especially when he sang "Hurt". That really got to me. (っ˘̩╭╮˘̩)っ

Congratulations, Milord! That was an incredible stream! Here is my humble offering from your sleep ASMR, with a little Onigiri on your arm.

The pink feather-haired character is my version of the Kindred. I wanted to make them look androgynous, but I'll probably draw other versions of Kindred some day too. The earring is on the left ear instead of the right, because I think it's supposed to mean the Kindred belong to someone... In this case, to Milord.

He mentioned in the ASMR stream that he was sitting in his chair with his duvet. If I remember correctly, he let us hear his heartbeat on our right ear.

So that's the story behind this drawing. (*﹏*;) Please enjoy~

Legatus505: the Last Straw

"The straw that broke The Sheep's resolve."

Legatus505: Interim 2

I have been staring at this illustration for days. And whenever I work on something for that long, I tend to overthink and add too many elements and then tire myself out.

Hopefully, this still looks okay? I honestly don't know anymore, but I'm pretty happy with how this looks overall. ( ╹▽╹ )

Back to work for this busy bee!

#utapri_otoya_BD2022

Happy birthday, my beautiful boy! I'm sorry I used one of my photographs for your background this year, but I do hope you come home in Shining Live anyway.

Thank you for bringing so much joy in my life. I'll keep getting stronger so that I'll make you proud. I love you~

Legatus 505: Iris Park

"We didn't have things like this in my time you know. You need to treasure it."
- Legatus 505 - Iris Park

I was warned that this novel was going to be dark, but I didn't think there was going to be so many questions left unanswered.

I have my own theories on the real identity of Iris Park, but they're just that - theories. I'm really hoping and praying we get some answers in the future, but well... She might remain a mystery forever, and that might not be so bad either.

Anyway, I've been coloring in soft pastels for so long that I'd forgotten how to paint darker scenes. This still didn't come out as dark as I'd like it, but the color of the apple pops out quite a bit.

I need to stop thinking about Iris and get some actual work done, lol~

Happy Birthday, Zenny!

보고싶다 자기야 - Jagiya, I miss you so much. Whenever I notice that I'm feeling depressed, you're always the first character that comes to mind.

When life got so hard, I just told myself I was acting.
All this struggle is only practice. It’s just like practicing in a run down studio before a big show. I comforted myself like that, and it worked.
Try thinking that when things get hard for you. Right now, you’re just back stage. Soon, the curtains will open just for you.
Alright?

I did take a leap of faith though. It is partially because of you that I had the courage to do that. I feel so proud, and I wish I could somehow tell you this in person.

Happy birthday, Jagiya... After all these years, I still love you so dearly. ♡

Shu Yamino Unleashed

Alright, I'm going to stop nitpicking on this because now I'm behind with doing the actual work that I need to do. (*﹏*;)

I've had this scene in my head for a while now... I imagine Shu being very protective of everyone in Luxiem, but especially so to Ike. I was going to make them both look like they had been beaten down, but it might look too disturbing... The red tears can be interpreted as Shu's eyeshadow running instead of blood after all, so this is fine? Maybe?

Time to get some food then go to work.

UtaPri Shining Live: Three Kings

Oh wow, I finally finished this! I'm so proud?! (〒﹏〒)

If you play Shining Live, you'll probably recognize the costumes as last year's birthday cards. I don't know what shoes they're wearing, so I gave Ranmaru and Masato their boots from Legend Star.

No, this is not Team MRR, these three were the first Kings who came home with just one or two pulls. I managed to get a few more later, but I guess I thought only these three would come home. (*´ω`*)

Anyway, time for sleep! Happy White Day!

Studying with Vox

That was a very interesting stream.

I've never heard about the Pomodoro technique. But Vox used it on his study stream today and I thought I'd play along.

In the first 3 sessions, I managed to get some actual work done. So much so that I am now ahead of my schedule, and I even managed to squeeze in a personal piece. By the fourth and final session, I decided to try and make something for Professor Akuma and fully immersed myself into the "student in study hall" experience.

Yes, this is exactly how the pages of my notebooks often looked like when I was a student. Lots of pencil art everywhere. I often got teased for it and got into trouble with my teachers, but it helps me concentrate so I kept doodling anyway.

This entire page was done in 25 minutes. I added the layout and edited some text colors for another 5 minutes and left it at that. And please, don't mind the horrible poetry or the written notes, they are all just mindless scribbles.

I may need to download this stream and use it every day for the rest of my life. (ㆁωㆁ) (Or be more practical and find other ASMR Pomodoro streams that are not as distracting, I don't know~)

Legatus 505: Ater Corvus

I think I might really get into the lore of Legatus 505. I've been interested in stories like Ghost in the Shell and the Matrix, so a live reading of a cyberpunk novel? Count me in.

Not really a "shonen" version like Legatus described, but this was the best that I could come up with~ (*´ω`*)

Off to bed now.

Milord, Vox Akuma~

So... I seem to have accidentally fell into a rabbit hole of sorts.

Vox Akuma fan art by Kurohiko

This Vtuber, Vox Akuma's voice is as smooth as velvety cream. Like my god, such a voice should be illegal. Illegal! It does help me concentrate to listen to him in the background while I work, but oh goodness me.

His new ASMR streams are also very yabai. Ya. Bai. YABAI. World, you have been warned.

//prepares for said yabai stream tomorrow~

#yuyuhakushoredraw - Youko Kurama

#yuyuhakushoredraw - youko kurama by kurohiko

I saw #yuyuhakushoredraw on Twitter and decided to join the bandwagon despite being incredibly late to the party. (๑•﹏•)

youko kurama original screenshot

Of course I had to draw Youko, who else would it be? ♡(≧▽≦)♡

These redraws are quite satisfying. As someone who's been having a ton of self-doubt lately, this is very therapeutic. I'm happy that I'm finally able to focus on commissions again, albeit very slowly, but progress is still progress.

However, I am losing sleep in the process, so goodnight for now, and Happy Lunar New Year. ヾ(*’ω’*)/ May the pandemic finally end this year!

Crystal Shadows Collaboration with Cheesy Fit

This piece has been sitting on my PC since March 2020. I really live how this came out, and now I keep wondering why I stopped drawing this series.

...oh right. Life happened. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

I'm not really sure what's going to happen to these two, but once things settle down, maybe I can tell their story again. For now, check out Cheesy Fit on Facebook!

#sailormoonredraw - Sailor Venus version

I've always wanted to do this version of Sailor Venus. Incidentally, this redraw pretty much sums up the beginning of my new year.

January started by letting me know my motherboard was fried and that this type of MoBo is now fairly obsolete. This means all of my commissions had to be put on hold while my nephew tries to locate a new MoBo.

A few days later, I came down with a sore throat... at the time when my city began having a lot of CoVid cases.

Thankfully, I wasn't very sick. But for many reasons, isolating at home can be very stressful. I'm grateful that it's finally over and that I have my PC back..!

Belated happy new year, everyone! While the pandemic still ravages the world, please remember to always wear your mask and wash your hands.
