こんにち は! ともだち に なりましょう!
Hey friends! I am Ponyo. Feel free to check out my world and catch up with what's been going on with me lately! I rarely post, so I'm sorry about that(School, I tell you.)

I don't really draw quite so much anymore, so if you're looking for innovative artwork, I'm not the best one to check out for that anymore : ( Sorry to disappoint. But feel free to check out some of my old stuff! If you'd like to see something I've done recently, leave me a comment and maybe I'll be motivated to add something, haha.

I'm an OCCASIONAL guest poster on Offbeat Mama(despite not being a Mom-SKILLS), so check me out there, too! If you ask, I can give you my name on there, and link you to a post.

Feel free to comment and talk to me! I love making new friends. そして, 日本ご を はなします から, いっしょう に はなしましょう ね!

I've been TAGGED.

Hello friends! So Nakisaku chan tagged me! I'm glad, LOL, this looks pretty fun! By the way, sorry for going dormant for a while, I am REALLY busy with school. I should probably be studying History right now, but ce cera, cera. SO! It's post time!!
1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 11 things about themselves in their journal.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create eleven new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged him/her.
6. No tag backs.
7. No stuff in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you are reading this." You legitimately (AKA, really, truly) tag someone.
And then here are the questions Naki chan gave me:
And for my questions for you all!
1) What is your favorite animal?
I actually don't have one. And not because I LOVE every animal, more like I;m neutral. Haha, I know, that's awful.
2) What is your favorite type of book and music genre?
Well, I LOVE Manga, mostly shojo and slice of life, and mosic is..rock or pop, I think.
3) What is the funniest thing that happened to you recently?
Oh my gracious. Umm, Off the top of my head? currently at my church we are having "focus groups", which is a group where they ask you questions about what the church is doing that you like/don't like, and they are taking the information and trying to reevaluate our vision or something..? But anyway, yesterday we had a youth one. So they'd ask us a question, and every time this 8'th grader would answer, and he would totally go off on some random tangent that had NOTHING to do with it, and the tangent would end with him going around the circle and saying something(pretty much the same thing he said last time) about each person. And EVERY time, he'd come top the girl next to him, who has the same name as his mom, and he'd go "And Ei-chan? She's my mother!" And it was just random and funny.
4) Do you like school lunches?
Haha, no. Not at ALL. My school's food is really gross and unhealthy, so I pack bento.
5) Which superpower would you choose? Flight, lazor beam, super strength, or cat-like abilities?
Cat like abilities? That sounds pretty sweet! Do I get ears and a tail? I think that would just make it all the better.
6) Where is your happy place?
I think it's all about attitude. If I keep positive, I can be happy anywhere!
7) How do you determine a true friend (yes this is deep lol)?
Someone who is nice, fun to be with, trustworthy and kind, would never turn against you, who you can talk to about anything, and who you are never bored with!
8) What's your favorite hobby?
Drawing, baby sitting, and Japanese(yes, I realize that's 3)!
9) Are you a procrasinator (cuz I should totally be doing homework right now)?
Haha, not usually. I used to be REALLY bad, but one I started privet school I usually turn things in early because I know the standard they hold us to.
10) Does anyone like brussel sprouts or lima beans? Because I find them both revolting vegetables.
I don't particularly favor either, but I can eat them if I have to. ONLY if I have to, LOL.

11) Do you overthink things (like me!) or just stick to the point or answer, and be finished?
Some of both! Mostly overthink, though, that's why I dislike true or false questions. Haha.
Okay, my tags and questions. TAGS: C C C
Harvestmoonluvr, imouto chan, sakura kokoro, iamessance, mikuberry, kamichan. I really don't feel like tagging anyone else..? That's enough. Please do it if you think it looks interesting!

Artist question tag thingie time!

Hello, Friends! So I am still alive, for the record. I stole this from someone a while ago(I can't remember who...), and I decided to fill it out today! So please enjoy! And if you're interested, it's all yours, go ahead and do it.

★When did you start drawing?
I've been drawing since I was a toddler, making comics since I was in about 1'st grade(maybe earlier), and drawing manga since I was..8?

★Which hand do you use for drawing?

★Which is easier to draw - male or female?
Either is fine, but I would have to say girls are easier.

★Which is easier to draw - long hair or short hair?
LOOONG! I LOVE drawing long hair.

★Is it easier to draw the head facing towards the right or the left?

★Is it easier to draw the side view of the face or the front view?
Front view, but 3/4 is easiest for me.

★What do you have problems in drawing?
Umm..maybe cars and certain background things.

★What do you like to draw?
Anything! But mostly people. And comics.

★Are you a traditional artist or a digital artist?

★Where do you start drawing from?
It's kind of embarrassing, but I start from the hips.

★What is your drawing habit that you are aware of?
I press WAAAY too hard.

★What do you keep in mind when you do lineart?
Nothing, really. I just let my mind wander and don't really worry too much.

★Any tips for coloring/shading?
Don't mix any more than two colors-it just doesn't work.

★How long does it take to finish a piece of art?
It depends on how many characters are in it.

★What music do you listen to while you draw?
I don't, really!

★How long does it take you to come up with an idea?
Not long at all. If I can't think of anything(which hardly ever happens), I just sit down and draw a random character I come up with on the spot.

★Your favorite drawing utensils?
Pencil and eraser!

★Your favorite color/the color that you use a lot?
I don't color very often, but I use bright colors a lot!

★Your favorite style(s)?
I have my own awkward, original style!

★Are you satisfied with your current art?

Yeah! I mean, it'll improve as I draw, but I like it currently.

★What kind of artist are you aiming for?

To be original and be myself! Just draw as it comes to me.

In the summertime, when the weather gets warm..

Hey all! How are you? So I haven't posted anything....worldwise..since school got out, which was quite a while ago, so I thought I should say something to tell you all I am still alive. And as far as posting a picture..I haven't done that since..Christmas? Yeah, it's been a while! I've been drawing, though! Not as much as I'd like to, because I've been quite busy! I have been drawing, though, I was in Costa Rica for 10 days, which was AMAZING, please say something if you wanna hear more about it, home for 3 days, one of which I had the flu for, and then went to camp. Which was rather horrid. Possibly stories to follow. LOL. But bottom line, I've been drawing when I can, and I'm hoping to post soon 0.o I hope.

What's up with these antics?
