-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.

*jumps around*

School let out yesterday!!!~~ It's the 6th and I have to make an announcement!!~ On June 9th(that's in 3 days) I'll be leaving for Korea!!~ just temporarily =P so if you don't see me for a day or two and I haven't replied to a pm and such then you know where I am! I'll be back in America on July 4th~
Okies so the manga is going well and I'm excited to keep working on more pages~!(I'll update progress on SoZ)
Alright well I've been spending a lot of time doing the things I love doing~drawing, playing games, and just enjoying the weather! ^^ I've been reading up on you guys' progress and gosh everyone has improved SO MUCH*huggles you all* I can't wait to post up my latest piccy and get your opinion as to if I improved too! ^^
This is a rather short post, so I'll go ahead and update my stuff on SoZ!~ Take care everyone!! ^^

FINALLY! A CHANCE TO POST!

Wowwwww.....it has been sooo busy you guys have had NO IDEA!! 0____o
So I'm FINALLY able to come on line and actually post(because lately I've barely been able to get on the computer and the last time I did was to talk to Ima-chan in the Xat Chat =P)~
So finals are next week on the last three days of school and the award ceremony is next week!
And the sad part is is that I'm not going to it! T____T Even though it's what I've been looking forward to for the entire year I'm not going to be able to see it and see the best students because the principal instituted a new policy saying that only the students recognized by teachers will receive a special invitation to watch and attend the award ceremonies...
and my mouth just dropped and I tried not to show it when my English teacher told me because I wasn't on the list...
and when I told my mom she blamed me and said "well I guess you didn't get recognized because you didn't work hard enough as usual. Maybe next year if you actually focus you'll do better..."
...I'm a straight-A student...and she's STILL not satisfied. And now I REALLY blew it by not being able to go to the award's ceremony and so she finds another reason to throw it on me...*sighs*
Absolutely NOTHING has gone right this year and probably the only thing that has was the fact that I made it to Eastside..(Yui-chan you know these things from the huge list I gave you in the pm!)
*sighs* This year was absolutely the most HORRENDOUS year I've ever had...sooo unlucky...probably almost no good experiences at all and I just HAPPEN to end up liking a guy that I have 0 classes with!(not to mention all that drama with my "best friend" misunderstanding me..)
Sorry for the rant everyone..it's just I don't really have anyone else to tell this to. ^^;; I'll make it up to you guys, I promise!
How many of you guys are actually out of school? 0___o I don't get out until the 5th... T____T
I'll see you all later! Take care everyone! *huggles you all*

^^ *waves* profiles are here~ and hiya ^^

Hiya everyone!!~ I know myotaku is connected again and I'll post there soon just for reminiscence but for now I'm going to stick with the world~ =P
I just finished watching American Idol a while ago and omg David Cook and David Archuleta are both soooo amazing!! *squeals* ^^ My classmates at school say that I should try seriously but I kind of hesitate ^^;; what do you guys think?
Um...well in art news, I've been working REALLY hard on Sayoko-chan's art trade and I'm LOVING how its coming out so far!! ^^ *squeals* It's done on tablet with a new coloring style so I hope you guys like it when I post!(still have background and such to do ^^;;;)
Along with that I've planned about 15 pages of my fan manga now and I think I'm just about ready to start!! ^^ I'm sooo excited to get working on this!~
I've also thought up a new name of someone I just randomly happened to be thinking of(*cough*guy at school I like*cough*) and I fixed up the name:
Hitsoju Soronai
That was difficult to type 0___o
Anyways...yeah since Wolfie-chan, you asked his name there it is =P
Riiya's Nobody's profiles are complete! And I'm REALLY happy with the results though I was kind of mad that Stop was taken already by Xigbar of Organization XIII *sighs* but I had a back-up plan! ^^
I'll type up the profiles really quickly ^^;

Okies, well here's a brief description of how Riiya's Nobody works:
Riiya's Nobody is composed of two different people which are actually Riiya's 2 personalities. One is Asuka and the other is Xira. They both share the same body as Riiya's Nobody but Xira constantly tries to suppress Asuka and maintain control over the body.

Okies? Now that we have that all clear =P

Riiya's First Personality Side of her Nobody:
Name: Asuka
Age: 15
Abilities: She writes short stories, which are actually segments of important events happening around her that are connected to Riiya. She has the ability to stop, slow, or change the time of that particular event during or after she's written it except she can't change the memories that follow(in other words, if Asuka changed how an event was supposed to take place, it would happen except not only would it not be able to be stopped but the people involved would remember that it wasn't supposed to happen the way it did and know it was changed). Some events she can't change, slow, or stop and she has to let them happen and when she does try to change those events Xira has control over her just a little bit more each time.
Personality: Shy and sweet. Though she's quiet she has a very strong will and sense of justice when questioned. She's usually alone, because that's all she usually is is by herself.

Riiya's Second Personality Side of her Nobody:
Name: Xira
Age: 15
Abilities: Like Riiya she is able to become invisible for very short periods of time, but her fighting skills are her best points. She is very good in both close and long-range fighting but unlike Riiya she has awful defense and has trouble utilizing Reflect, though it's supposed to be her best spell ability, so she tries to make up for it by not letting her enemies get close and leave her vulnerable and not able to fight back.
Weapons: Descending Rage and Celestial Wing
Description: Using the Zodiac's most powerful forms Descending Rage and Celestial Wing, she is able to use both simultaneously to make an almost inpenetrable fighting barrier and has mastered both weapons.
Personality: Quiet and reserved. Doesn't speak too much, but sometimes she does speak out against Xemnas or an older member of the Organization when her opinion becomes too strong. She develops a strange fondness of Axel during her time with the Organization, and in a way it kind of develops into a crush. She tries not to let it effect her too much and doesn't speak about it to anyone. A lot of the time she can't concern herself with him too much because she's trying to become detached from him and concentrates most of her thoughts on suppressing Asuka and keeping control over the body.
Story: Xira was born with Asuka in the same body after events in Chain of Memories(which I'll get into later) and when she discovers that she and Asuka are in the same body, she seeks a way to keep the Nobody body to herself and get rid of Asuka and comes upon Organization XIII.
At this time, a lot of the Organization members had already been eliminated by Sora, but whoever remained she tried to go to for help. She encounters Axel and he offers to take her to Xemnas with her problem.
Xira talks to Xemnas and he tells her that she could join the Organization to make up for the lost members and Xira gladly accepts thinking that he would fix her problem. But of course, he never does, and didn't really mean it when he said she could join the Organization, and Xira is manipulated by him into doing his bidding. Events begin to unfold when she encounters Riiya in later chapters(which unfortunately I can't tell you about because it'd spoil too much =P).

And I would explain how it is she's able to encounter Riiya and have Riiya even standing at all, but it's really late and I'll have to save it for another post =P
Er..I'm sure there are mistakes because I'm just at the World that Never Was in KH2 recently and I haven't finished the game just yet ^^;;; but don't kill me for them! =P Take care everyone~ hope you guys like it! ^^

*waves*

Hiya everyone!! WOWW long time no see! ^^;;; sorry about that yet again~ I've been EXTREMELY busy this week(2 presentations, 7 quizzes and a HUGE AP test!), so I haven't had much time to get on!
Anyways, I'm back for awhile! ^^ Finals coming up soon so I'll have to leave again to study ^^;;;
In art news I've been working A LOT on my commissions and I've had GREAT inspiration to draw lately since I've got a nice break ahead of me until finals come~ ^^ Be prepared for me to post up my KH2 Design which I'm putting on to tablet and coloring for you guys!~ That'll be my next piccy to post =P
AND in manga progress as well as story progress, I've finished working out the kinks in my Chain of Memories story for Riiya and I've also gotten to starting the design for her Nobody ^^ If you haven't seen her designs already and you'd like to, they are below =P
I've also gotten around to commenting some of you guys' stuff, and I'll continue my rounds tomorrow(I just had guests over and it's kind of late and I'm REALLY tired so I'm going to sleep soon ^^;;;)~
I hope you guys aren't freaking out that I've died =P I'm just letting you know I'm alive everyone! ^^ *huggles you all* Take care!

The long-awaited designs!!~ ^^

Alright everyone!! ^^ I FINALLY got them scanned and ready to show you!! ^^ Unfortunately I had to take out some things because they'd spoil for my fan manga =P But I will show you what I have and explain too! ^^
Oh and before you go on, I'm going to apologize for the darkness of the pictures but I had to make it darker if you wanted to see the lines clearly enough(my scanner hasn't been cooperating so this is the best I could do to fix it ^^;;;)~ anyways! Here they are everyone!! ^^

KH1 DESIGN

Okies for the above design just letting you know that I've made weapon stats for if you put her in the actual video game =P So that's what the stats are at the bottom and you'll also notice I thought up a new design for the Zodiac AND a new outfit design which I love VERY much!! ^^ My eye style has also changed a bit, just for the lighting anyway =P

KH2 DESIGN

And for the above design I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE! ^^ I was sooooo proud of it when I finished drawing it and I'm STILL incredibly happy with the design! ^^ About the bow, I just decided to give her a different weapon(which you'll learn more about as the story progresses =P)~ and there's quite an interesting story behind the Zodiac and you guys will figure out about it later! ^^
Anyways...she DOES look older right? 0____o because that's the effect I was trying to achieve ^^; And the design is a bit complicated and difficult to see right now but I'm going to scan it again in a brighter light(with terrible lines T___T) and put it on to tablet with my new improved photoshop coloring! ^^ So wait for that! =P

Also about my progress on my fan manga, I've already planned out the first 10 pages for my storyboard and I've pretty much almost mastered how to draw Pooh =P I'll have to get working on the other disney characters but I've got AP exams to study for! ^^;; so those will have to wait...

Until then! I hope you all like the designs! ^^ Whether you're KH fan or not(sorry Sage-san ^^;;) I hope you guys like it~ take care!
