The list goes on to pretty much anything =P I've read many more manga so if you want to strike up a discussion about a mangaka/game/anime/movie creator on this list, don't be afraid to ask! I've looked at many works by each of the above authors/artists!
Something random you should know: I LOVE it when people draw the character's personality is intact(in other words, unchanged)~ it really gives the picture a better feel because they act the same as they were made to be.
Hey there everyone! Just a post to let you know that I'll be leaving for a week-long trip to Las Vegas, Yosemite National Park and the Grand Canyon at 3:00am tonight, so I won't be able to come online really I don't think while I'm there. It's going to be quite a busy trip, but I hope it's fun! Lots of driving and things to do haha. Too bad I'm not 18 though, my mom told me to hang out at the Borders bookstore there while she and the rest of my family go to the Casinos hahaha. It's going to be pretty crazy but lots of fun I hope! I'll be stopping by Atlanta first and then catch a flight from there to Vegas ^^ It's a pricey trip, so I hope it's worth it!
So on that note, I'm gonna be kinda busy for the rest of today getting ready for the trip(and I've gotta leave for a dentist appointment in half an hour wahh @__@)! But I'm doing my best to finish commenting on everything before I leave as needed. Hopefully I'll get to see plenty of wonderful submissions when I get back ^^ <33
I'm also trying my best to finish up this pic before I go so I have something to leave you guys with before I leave! @__@ So many little details on it need finishing haha. I'll probably try and come on through my phone, but it's difficult to comment on my phone so I'll see what I can do.
I'll be sure to tell you guys all about the trip when I get back! Take care and I'll see you guys soon!<33
Hey everyone! >.< I'm sorry I haven't really been so active here..I don't know this place just seems so sad now T__T I love it here still but agh lots of stuff going through my head about this place.
-Who's your fave anime/manga character?
-That's a REALLY REALLY tough question.. REALLY tough xDD I'll probably have to give it to Izumi Sano or Kenshin Himura because both of them have inspired me to become a better person. I know, some people might think it's sad that a person can be so affected by a person from a manga lol but these two really have a special place in my heart, so I can't choose just one of them.
-Why won't you come live in Tennessee?
-Too cold for one thing xDD And for another thing...what would I do there besides see you Unknown-chan? hahahaha
-Have any little tips on drawing and stuff?-Haha the most helpful thing I can say to you is TRY NEW THINGS. Always always don't be afraid of experimenting, even if it means just sketches, no matter what always try something different. And if you don't want to for a while, refine what you know ^^
Also, little details can really make a picture, so keep that in mind, even if you're feeling lazy xD For each full-fledged work you do, always put your whole heart into it. And don't be afraid of looking at tutorials to help you- you will never do it exactly the same way as the artist of the tutorial did, and hence you'll be able to come up with a style of your own ^^
And to add cleanliness to a picture, sometimes it's better to just do all of your shading in one direction, for neatness. Just a little thing xD
And that's it for questions ^^ If any of you have any more, I'd be more than happy to answer!<3 I've officially graduated as part of the class of 2011, so I'm super super happy!! ^^ Take care everyone!<3
Hey there everyone! It's been a bit since ive done one of these, but I wanted to ask! Do you guys have any questions for me? Ask me anything- from personal to silly! ^^ I'll answer all of them in a follow up post k? Love you guys and take care! I'm interested in seeing what you guys have to ask!
Haha as the title says, hello everyone!!~ I'm done with high school forever!! >.< As of yesterday I just took my VERY last exam, the AP spanish exam and my god was it hard xD But that's okay I'm fine with whatever I get! *nods*
To those of you on here that recommended D. Gray Man by the way, I absolutely LOVE YOU TO DEATH xDD Because I love D.Gray Man so so much! It really is great and I love all of their unique attributes and abilities ^^ It's a fun and very intense story to read! Allen Walker is amazing >.<
I'm sorry I haven't been replying on here..I just find it awkward to reply on my own posts sometimes because it shows up as a new comment notification by myself in my backroom xDD I will reply from now on though, I promise!
So now it's off to college in the fall! I have preview on July 5th/6th so I'm very excited! ^^ I can't wait to get my new life in college started!
For those of you that have been missing Riiya by the way, I'm drawing her right now so you'll get to see her again~ expect lots of art this summer! I'm going to work SUPER hard, I promise! And this time I don't have excuses because there is absolutely ZERO homework haha!
On that note, I was offered an AMAZING opportunity yesterday from my music teacher: she asked me personally if I'd like to be the pianist accompanying the school Chamber Singers as they sing Faithfully by Journey at Graduation!! I'M SOO EXCITED! >//< But of course I'll have to work really really hard! It's on June 4th and first rehearsal is this Tuesday!! @__@ I can do it though I think! *nods*
So enough on me, how are you all? Thank you so much for all of the support everyone T__T I haven't been on active on here as I should have been, but I promise I'll make it up to you!
I've reached 200+ subs which is AMAZING and I never thought would happen T__T So thank you for making one of my goals a reality! *super hugs* I love you all so much! Take care of yourselves!<3
Oh goodness gracious it's already been almost a month since I've updated this?? >.<
Hello everyone~ I'm SO sorry I've been so negligent of this place, I really have...I just am not seeing very many people online these days and it makes me really sad T__T Plus I'm hearing about some issues with e-card and wallpaper submissions and it's just worrying me that theO has turned into a whole 'nother place that I barely even recognize from when I first joined here..
I don't know, I almost feel like there's really no trace of the old theOtaku anymore these days. Back then before there were any "Challenges", I feel like more people wanted to join contests when they just posted about it and people spread the word. Nowadays I see so many challenges where there are zero, one or two entries and it saddens me so much. I feel like we all interacted so much more back then.
I know a lot of you are newer members and also that many of my friends are much MUCH older members but think about it, there have been quite a few changes lately huh?
In any case..my last day of school was on April 29th and I can't believe I'll never have to step foot on campus again except for our final farewell from teachers at the Senior Obligation Day and Awards Ceremony later this month. I just finished my first week of testing and it was REALLY intense haha..usually each day I had about 6-7 hours of straight-up testing so I'm pretty tired lol...I have about 3 more exams to go and then I'm finished, so I'm very excited!! (By the way, I'm not in school..we get a month off for exams xD And I have 8 this year with multiple papers for each one LOL).
I guess..well I'll figure something out! I'm going to work hard to finish some art..lately I've been so exhausted with exams it's been impossible for me to do ANYTHING else @__@
Love you all so so much!! And no need to comment if you don't want to, I just wanted to make this post to let you know I'm alive xD I keep losing subs haha but I can understand. I haven't been submitting very "good quality" art as of late. But I'll redeem myself I promise!
So! I'll see you all around~ please take care of yourselves!
