-My Deviantart(active)

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.

Inspiration loss...and a new resolve

Hiya everyone~ ^^ I haven't updated much...mostly because of my lack of inspiration to post, update, and put up art etc...
But today I guess I had the worst moment of inspiration loss. Today I went to read mangas at the bookstore and I read so many there. I finished reading and when I got home I was like...
"So many original artists...what am I doing?"
Basically put, I've almost lost all inspiration for my KH fan comic now..I have so much planned but after reading all of the amazing series I saw today I don't know something just clicked that made me want to make my own. Not draw in the style of someone else but try drawing a comic of my own.
I mean...I love the KH style of Shiro Amano, really I do it's like one of my favorite anime styles but as well as liking that I also have a style of my own to look toward to. I love planning my KH fan comic and everything but something I saw in the mangas that I read today made me think perhaps I could try making a new manga of my own, in my own style, my own story and of course my own characters.
I'm not saying I'm 100% stopping my KH fan comic but something tells me that I might not post it, or if I do it won't be for a while(besides, my family thinks that making a fan comic of something is kind of stupid, they don't want me to post anything on here except things that I've created myself 100% not off of anything else 0_______o).
I guess I lost inspiration for one thing, but gained inspiration for another. And with this resolve I'm hoping to make a manga completely out of my own imagination, something you guys have never seen before, not an idea that's being transformed. I know a lot of you might probably be mad because like more than half of you were so excited to see it but trust me I plan to make something totally new! And I promise you guys I'll continue it and keep it going!
I don't know but we'll just have to see in the future what may come. Take care everyone ^^

Back with art~ =P

Hiya everyone!! I am SOOO SOOO sorry for my long absence but I've returned with art!!! ^^ I just submitted my art trade with you Sayoko-chan so if you guys want to see it check it out ^^
It's been like forever ^^;;; sorry sorry~ but just letting you know I'm alive! And yes I've been working on my manga but toning hasn't been working so well with me so I'm trying to find out my toning style which is why it's taking so long ^^;;
...or do you just want me to post anyway with horrible toning? =P
Anyways I'm back for now~ not totally inspired art-wise but I'm trying to get entries done for contests and such! So I've got to be! ^^
Take care everyone~~

Whoa...I died for a moment 0__o

*crawls out of hiding* Hiya~ ^^;
YEAAAHHH...I keep dying ^^;;; sorry~ but I FINALLY got my scanner to work and it's working great!!
I keep saying I'll post and I just keep forgetting or something goes wrong gomen ne hotoni!!!~ T_________T I WILL post soon I promise you guys!!
Or you can slap me and throw food at me and boo me on stage or something ^^;;
And SoZ has 100 views now and this world has 682 omg! Thankies everyone that visits!!~ My dad is cutting my time down on the computer so I probably won't be able to comment so much T___T which also explains why I haven't really been on because I recently got into a HUGE argument with my parents over the online world...(they think everyone online is a bunch of 40 year old stalker people that hit on young people 0_________o)
So yeah...if I'm gone for a while you know why!! See you around and take care of yourselves everyone!
Oh and dont' hesitate to pm me, because thankies to the new feature I cleared out my inbox!~ ^^

Back!!~

As the title says everyone!!~ I'm back from my vacation in Korea!!~ ^^ *huggles everyone*
The flight was luckily 13 hours(because of the tailwind in our favor~) and the Atlanta to Florida flight was another lucky 45 minutes!!(last time it was 2 hours 0___o)~ so we got home a lot faster than last time! =P
As soon as I got home though I pretty much died because I was SO tired so I slept immediately and didn't get up until 7:30am =P(we got back at around 4 ish)
So yeah~ I'm checking updates but it seems I've probably missed some...*checks around*
Take care everyone!~ And art will be submitted today! =P

A mini post~ and a list of to-dos!

Hiya everyone!!~~ ^^ Just a mini post of my list of to-dos!~
Oh and another question for you guys~ if that's okay ^^; only 3 more days until I'm back in the Americas!~

Okies, so here's EVERYTHING I have to do 0___o(and fast!)

Gaia Commissions:
-Koiyuki
-SunRei

Art trades:
-RSRKingdomStars: Sayoko and Riku(done on tablet, just need to finish up with the layers and such and I'll submit as soon as I get back! ^^)
-Sora_Hanaki: Riiya and Kotori(inked so far~and ready to color when I return ^^)

Requests:
-Sora_Hanaki: Birthday Request!(when she gives it =P)

Contest Entries:
-Red_kie: Android~!(thought up design, and ready to put on paper! ^^)
-Karen Nobody: Summer Contest~!(thought up design and ready to put on paper! Totally excited to get started on this! ^^)

Other:
-KH Fan manga: Tone pages on Photoshop when I get back and post up the first 2 pages!(I would post up 5...but I'm not satisfied with the introductory pages so I'm not going to post those just yet ^^;;)
-CLEAN OUT PM BOX!!! =P

It's soooo annoying how you can't just click "select all" and "delete" in the pm box you have to get rid of each one one at a time -___-XXX but I'll have to clean it out sometime!
And a quick question for you guys, if that's okay!
1) I'm having trouble deciding where my KH Fan manga should be going...Riiya starts out in Hundred Acre Wood, yes, but going to other Disney movies might be a bit too "cliche"(predictable)...I would have her go to the anime worlds and manga worlds but that's copyrighted to Ima-chan's idea so I probably shouldn't do that ^^;; though it would be easier...
My final thought was Riiya getting transported into other characters' stories...not just existing ones, fan characters too...what do you think about that? =P Though the general story will take place in Sora's story(Kingdom Hearts) but I'm wondering if maybe that could work as well...
my question is...any suggestions? ^^;

Okies everyone that's pretty much it!! ^^ Only 3 more days until you see more art!!!~ ^^ I'm sooo excited to post up!!~ Take care everyone! *huggles you all*
