Rei Akino Bio

Okay so after reading this piece of trash, I just HAD to update all the information. Most of the information about my manga on this world is totally out dated. So ...

Some major changes!

As most of you know, I've been attempting my manga series Living in a Cloud (aka Request of the Heart or Forgotten Dreams for those long time followers) ever since I joined theO. I've redone the same scenes about 4 times, and you've had to suffer through constant remakes...

Don't worry, I'm not starting over again. xD

I am actively planning out the details of my manga! This time I'm developing a script like you're suppose to lol. If you follow me on Tumblr, you probably have seen that I've made a few edits to the existing pages, such as Riko Kojima's name being changed to Rei Akino as well as some art edits. If you want to see them you can go through the actual manga which is linked in the introduction. :)

Changes to my manga are extremely difficult to me. I have been planning this story since I was in FIFTH GRADE, and when something has been such a prominent part of your life, it's hard to change it. In the earlier concepts of the story, Rei was suppose to keep her memories, and it'd be more of like "theOtaku dream" kind of story where she met all of her anime idols. It wasn't until later that I decided that she would lose her memories all together. She was also suppose to spend a lot of time in certain anime worlds. Her story was going to follow a format similar to Naruto. When she was 12, she was suppose to travel to the Digimon world and the Naruto world. Then I would fast forward to when she was 15 and continue on with her involvement with the KH2 part.

I eventually cut the Naruto world from Rei's story, simply because I stopped keeping up with the series. I felt that I didn't have a right to include it since I didn't love it as much as I did when I was a child (Don't get me wrong, it's a great series, but geeze it's just too long to keep track of).

Anyways, after a lot of thinking, I'm going to have to cut the Digimon world from her story too. It probably doesn't seem like a big deal, but it's extremely difficult for me. Rei started out as a Digimon OC, and Digimon was my absolute favorite series as a child. I wanted her to be partners with Dorumon and have a heartfelt best friendship sort of deal.

But now that I'm older and I'm trying to plan this whole thing, I realized that as much as I love Digimon and as much as I want Rei and Dorumon to meet, in the bigger scheme of things, I can't let sentimental value override the plot. If I were to put in the Digimon storyline, it would seem so out of place compared to the other parts of the story, and the amount of time and effort it would take to create the Digimon storyline would far outweigh its contribution to the progression of Rei's story. I don't want it to be a retelling of a story (Digital Monster X-Evolution to be exact) with my character shoehorned in there, which is what the Digimon storyline would've done. Rei's involvement in the KH storyline is much more intricate and unique to itself. It's not just adding my character to the background or stealing Sora's spotlight.

Anyways, this was a huge mountain for me to get over. I didn't realize exactly how hard and heartbreaking this is for me until I started understanding that this omission was necessary. It's like forgetting about a major part of my childhood. This post is mostly for me to take the last step of abandoning the Digimon storyline, and it probably won't make much sense and mean that much. However, there are a lot of benefits with me dumping this idea. I get to reach Rei's involvement in the KH storyline a lot quicker and the timeline of the story works out much MUCH better.

Thank you for taking the time to read this! It means a lot to me. :) Hopefully by the time I post again, I would have gotten a significant amount of the script finished. A lot of time just opened up for me, so I plan on working on a bunch of projects!

Thank you for all of your continuous support as well! I love you all very much. :)

Have a wonderful day<3

Manga Page WIP

Proof that I'm still working on this project<33 About halfway through sketching I started writing down dialogue but then I got distracted by something (I don't remember). After 30 minutes later of trying to make the other scenes look dramatic I realise that I wrote down "your goat".

A memorable moment indeed.

New Gate Keeper Design + Voice Meme + Livestream?!

So thanks to my friend Twams, I've gotten into watching Ippus's livestreams and have been trying out her style. :D It's a lot of fun and I find it much easier than my usual way of linearting too. Though, it can get frustrating sometimes considering that it's all on one layer xD; File size is HUGEEEEEE.

But yeah, this is the Gate Keeper(he doesn't have a name, and probably never will. XD). After I get chapter 1, I'm going to go back and fix up his designs in every page he shows up in. XDDD He'll still have his cape thing though, so it won't be too much work.

PFFFT I have so many WiPs but I never actually go around to finish them. @__@ I have this picture, my beach picture, Rei's ref, and a Marshall Lee pic.
Not to mention Manga pages @__@
I will get previews to you guys as soon as I can! I have the next four pages sketched out and they look really good. I'm trying out more complicated poses since I recently got a big manikin. I had a small one before, but I had no understanding on anatomy in the first place. Didn't help much. Plus I broke it. XD
So sorry I haven't been able to consistently update my pages.... ;_; Tale of Two Cities is kicking my butt. I mean, I get most of the main stuff. But I always end up doing terribly on the reading quizzes OTL plus my teacher is assigning all of these other projects to go along with it. There's historical fiction journal entries and dialectical journals and asdfja;dkfja I'm just horrid at English D:

In other news. I just finished listening to Den-chan's voice meme and Sayura is encouraging me to do one too. xD so uhhhh questions? Ask me a lot. I like rambling :D And instead of voice meme, I might make it video, and show the coloring of the GK pic while answering questions. I might play some Adventure Time songs on my uke too.

Also, after watching so many Ippus livestreams, I was thinking of doing one too. I didn't really know much about it until a few days ago. xD It looks pretty fun. :D Not now of course. October ended up being way busier than I thought it would be....maybe during Christmas or Summer break? idk. Anything I need to know about livestream?

So yeah. That's it I think. C:
Thank you for reading~
I love your faces<3
