-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.

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:

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 ^^)

-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! ^^)

-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 ^^;;)

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*

Back from a long trip!~

Hiya everyone I'm back from a LONG trip and I heard the news that Sakurie-chan came back!! ^^ (and saw all of your wonderful piccys, you guys have improved SO much it makes me feel sad T__T)
So I went on a 3 day/2 night trip to this place called Vivaldi Park and spent the nights there with my family and some of my dad's students (it's a condominium place, REALLY nice! ^^) The first day we played arcade games and went sightseeing to some nice places and one of them was this really popular drama set for a drama called Winter Sonata! ^^ 겨울 연가 =P It was SO beautiful, the trees are soo nice there and there were ostriches =P
The second day we spent rafting for 3 and a half hours 0________o It was SO fun though, and the guy who was guiding us kept making us do silly things to make us fall off the boat on purpose =P But it was fun, though the water level was REALLY low =P That night though was THE MOST PAINFUL NIGHT EVER. We went to bowling and played this REALLY fun arcade game =P(spam buttons pretty much, I kept laughing like crazy ^^;) And afterwards suddenly the pain from the rafting set in and my arms were hurting so bad they were almost paralyzed from muscle aching! @_____@ And not to mention somehow I got some kind of rash on my arms too from rafting and I accidently put soap on it and it burned so much I almost screamed... 0____o but I'm better now~ my arms don't hurt as much ^^
So I'm back from my trip! And I've pretty much caught all of your updates I think~ I'll see you all around!! *huggles you all*

Oh and I believe I got a tag from Sayoko-chan! =P 8 random facts I believe?
1)Er... I like a guy that I have never actually met, only seen and talked to once on facebook 0___o
2)I bash myself for not having a "guy enough" anime guy eye style a LOT 0___o because I see so many other people being able to draw guy eyes and I can't T___T well, at least one I'm satisfied with =P
3)I play Maplestory and I'm level 78(that was random =P) and I'm aiming for level 120 0___o(also random ^^;)
4)I'm currently having to take 6 pills a day(3 times a day 0___o) and a syrup for ear problems and throat problems T___T
5)I'm currently working on a Kingdom Hearts Fan Manga in Shiro Amano's style and have thought up the story all the way up to Chain of Memories(yes I am that far ahead =P)
6)Um...(running out of facts =P)I've been drawing since I was six and my first anime's that I 've ever watched were Dragonball Z and Sailor Moon~
7)The artists that inspire me most on this site(do NOT kill me if I don't say your name ^^;) are RSRKingdomStars, Sora Hanaki, FUNimation, Fire Fox Sakurie, CherryShock and Sefaa3(yes you guys inspire me with your art everyday and I look at you guy's portfolios and wish I were as good as you guys!) You all are AMAZING artists and I LOVE seeing your works every time I come on here!(it makes my day to see everyone's art! ^^)
8)Some of my dreams are to 1)be able to finish my KH fan manga 2)finally be accepted by my relatives and reach the high goals they expect of me and 3)to be able to perform on stage as a singer in Korea and meet Battle and Shinhwa(=P I know the last one is weird but for some reason singing in korea feels kind of right 0___o)

I tried not to use facts I used before in previous tags ^^; but anyways! I tag!~
Sora Hanaki, Suerte, SaxGirl, MewKittyCatChan54, Yikes190, MerokoYui4, Karen Nobody, and MewMewPudding!
(I had a tough time choosing these because I wasn't sure who has been tagged already for one thing, and for another I hope they see this! T__T)
Take care everyone! Only 6 days until I come back to America~

Back from a trip!~

Hiya everyone this'll be a short post because it's past 1am here @___@
I just got back from a 2 day/1 night trip in Daegu! It was pretty fun and the sights were nice~
My dad, sis and I went to the oldest and largest temple in Korea called the Haeinsa 0___o It's weird writing that in english...
but yeah...my sister and I went shopping too with a friend of ours and we had lots of fun~and we got driven around by her private chauffer(she's rich...her father owns a private golf course 0___o) yeah so that was amazing~ and we also got to stay at this nice hotel(it's like 985$ per night in US money 0___o) and her family arranged that whole thing for us...it was incredible but my sis got mad that this guy wouldn't let her take pictures in the hotel 0_______o that's the 3rd time it's happened to her =P
Okies it's almost 2am now...maybe I'll tell you more in another post another time~ I've been working on art a lot so I've got lots to show you guys! Take care everyone! *huggles you all*

Trying to keep calm trying to keep calm..

It's 10:40pm right now everyone and I'm leaving a post right now because I'm really really scared and I have to tell someone about this! T___T
Okay...it's 10:40pm and suddenly my grandma is yelling for me dad to get over to where she is and my dad's face is like the epitome of total panic! T___T My grandmas hands look worse than ever...like when she clenches them her skin's so thin it looks like a corpse just came to life T____T
If you need a vivid comparison, if you took an egg and took off the egg shell, and you see that really thin white layer just before the white egg part, that's what her skin looks like on top of the bones...you can see EVERY single bone and it's got me really worried because there's barely any blood flowing through her hands...
And on top of that it's pretty late so it's hard to get to a good hospital...the nearest good hospital is about an hour away from here...so my sis, dad and I are doing what we can to keep blood flowing...
Sorry for the rant you guys but I just had to tell someone gomen ne hotoni! Take care everyone~

Concert and busy!@___@

*waves* Hiya everyone!! I've FINALLY found time to post a post of my past week! ^^
Okies so the biggest event by far was yesterday~~ my sis and I got to go to a LIVE SBS MUSIC CONCERT!!! AND we had front row seats!(My dad has connections =P) There were sooo many good singers there!! You know the group Battle I was telling you all about? They were there too omg! =P They looked like they where from that place people call the ghetto though 0___o Where is the ghetto anyway? 0____o
But yeah...we spent like 3 hours just traveling there...so I was exhausted when I got home @___@
So here I am yay!~ ^^ You guys are improving sooo much I feel so slow X___x
Talk to me everyone I'm here to reply to pms!~ Take care! ^^ *huggles you all*
