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.

Riiya's story~

Okies everyone, I think I've pretty much figured out my KH OC, Riiya's story~ so here's what I have so far and don't kill me for mistakes(I haven't played the second one yet ^^;):

Name: Kawazoe Riiya (Riiya of the Riverside, hence the symbol)
Birthday: October 14th
Age: 14
Hometown: Hundred Acre Wood
Weapon: Zodiac
Favorite colors: Blue, red/pink and white (favorite color combination is blue and silver)
Favorite foods: Anything having to do with berries!
Hobbies: Singing, drawing, writing, reading, and playing around with her friends. She likes to train a lot with Kotori, and considers her to be her older sister.
Specialty: Straight-on fighting, though her best points come in defense. She can use a little magic, but only to cure.
Abilities: Learns from Sora and Kotori the ability to fly or at least glide, and can hide herself with invisibility for very short periods of time.
Weakness: Magic attacks
Crush: She has trouble deciding if she likes Sora or Cloud. After time passes as she gets to know Sora and Cloud, she discovers that she really loves Cloud more as she learns about Sora's feelings and thoughts toward the person he cares about most. She really looks up to Leon, and at first had a childish crush on him but soon it turns into respect.
Personality: Shy at first when you meet her, but very easy to get to know. Her persistence usually leads to success and she doesn’t give up easily. She tries to work hard at everything she does, but isn’t exactly leader material. She wonders a lot about her hometown in hopes of returning the worlds as they once were as she was a child, and about who she is really in love with. She can be pretty out-of-character but that just shows how much she holds inside.
Quote: "There's so much out there to learn and forget...but why is there so little that I can remember?"
Story: When Riiya was little she once lived in Traverse Town with her parents but she was so little she can barely recall them and doesn't know what they look like. One day, she waited outside of the hotel as her parents were inside and discovered the secret waterway that lead to the Magician's Study. She made her way inside and found no one there, and discovered a book. As she opened it, a bright light flashed and she was soon transported inside the world of the Hundred Acre Wood with no way out of the book. Completely clueless as to what happened since she was so young, Riiya wandered around and came upon Pooh, Eeyore, Piglet, Rabbit, Tigger, Kanga, Roo and Owl all together and they took her in.
As time passed and she had grown up, Riiya one day ventured to Pooh's house as she always did but then looked beyond it and discovered that there was a place that she had never seen in all of her years in the Hundred Acre Wood...a large empty meadow. She also realized that at the same time everyone besides Pooh had disappeared! She quickly ran to the open place and was shocked to discover there was someone else there as well!
Just as soon as she saw him a key much like the one the boy had appeared, only with a different yet somewhat similar design. After a few moments of watching the boy talk to Pooh, she went up to Pooh and asked who he was.
Pooh told her that his name was Sora and that he came to find the disappearing worlds of the Hundred Acre Wood, and found also that he came from another world. Riiya hadn't known any other world outside of the Hundred Acre Wood, so as she made a split-second decision, she hugged Pooh and ran after Sora vowing one day to return and help Sora restore the worlds.
She followed Sora outside the book and asked if she could follow him, Donald and Goofy along on their adventures. And so Riiya's journey began as along the way she met the rest of the gang(Sakurie, Sayoko, Elena, Faith, Hikari, Misha, Kotori, Rika, May and the others), as she travelled to find the origin of this mysterious weapon, her past and future to come.
Well that's her story and profile as of now ^^ I can add more later, but for now you'll have to deal with that~ =P Hope you guys like it and take care!

A LOONNG time everyone... ^^; sorry~

Okies well I'm back! After a pretty long absence ^^:;; It's just that I don't really like the new otaku anymore...people have all moved to DA because of it not coming back because of it...T____T
So well here I am ^^
I've officially decided I'll comment and look around more because I want to try and bring this site back to life again! Maybe bring people back, even.
So I've had a pretty tough week...mostly concerning my art class because my thoughts sometimes get ahead and people dismiss it all the time...
(Be prepared for a rant, hopefully not too long)
Okies well I got to my art class in 3rd period and I was already having trouble finishing my final draft of my watercolor painting because the first portion had already turned out pretty bad.
The typical case is that I have an idea but the art teacher always wants me to change it so it suits his idea(and usually I don't like it because he doesn't use it as a suggestion he says "DO IT").
I ask him for help on how I could possibly fix it and he doesn't say anything and starts painting on my FINAL DRAFT -______________-X
It's not like I didn't have scratch paper right there either! He just started painting RIGHT on it! -_________-X
And I felt sooo mad because I just wanted him to give some suggestions on how I could fix it! Not to mention it was my final!
While he was painting on my final, he said "and this is what you do next." and looked at me for a second then KEPT ON PAINTING. And I said "Um...Mr. O that's not the idea I had in mind...can I explain what my idea was?"
And then what he said next REALLY made me mad.
"Well I asked you a question when I looked at you and you didn't answer so I took that as my cue to keep on painting."
*takes a deep breath*
Sorry everyone, I'll calm down, gomen ne ^^;;;
My painting was already messed up enough already...he leaves and then I try and call him back so I can explain for a second time. The first time I tried to call him back he said "JUST PAINT, QUIT STALLING and MOVE ON."
The second time I tried he FINALLY came and he didn't let me explain so I just started to explain anyway.
When he FINALLY got it all he said was
EVERYTHING was going wrong already so I just decided to break the rules and start over(even though he never gave me permission.)
it's just the way I think...people say I'm a little too open-minded and they say it's a good thing but I really don't know T____T
But my perspective on art is, no matter what anyone tells you do it the way YOU want to. Even if it was the president I would still do it the way I wanted to do it.

Wow...that was a really long rant, gomen ne everyone ^^;;
I'll make sure the next post isn't so dramatic ^^;;;;;;;;
And hopefully I can keep getting to work on my art trades because it's REALLY difficult considering how much time it takes up ^^;;; but I'll get a lot done because it's a 3-day weekend for me! ^^
Take care everyone!~

Back!~ And Happy Easter!

I lost a subscriber 0____o
That was random =P
Happy Easter everyone!!~ ^^ I'm really really sorry I've been gone for awhile but there's a history research paper that's had me SOOOO busy! I'm back though, so hopefully I'll be able to come on more often ^^
Otaku has become soo dead...a lot of my friends have left to DA and don't pm, post or comment anymore T____T
But anyways!~ To start off, I had a picnic today with my neighbors! ^^ VERY good food(we had sandwiches) and pastries and other things! ^^ It was a nice way to start the morning.
There isn't too much that's been happening 0___o but we had bunny cookies and they were tasty ^^
I've been having such an art slump lately and I can't seem to draw properly...I try and think up new poses but mine always end up being the same...so I've been trying to come up with something different but it's not exactly working T___T I'll try and think up something and post soon though! Don't worry!
Well anyways~ TALK TO ME if you want of course ^^ I'll be here to reply! Take care everyone and Happy Easter!

A bit of news~

Well, again there isn't THAT much to say today ^^; I'm going to be simple and straight with this post today~ *nods*
First off, I made up my mind about one of the things I listed in the last few posts and I decided to try and be on good terms with Victoria again because for one it was getting tiring to have her send people after me because she wouldn't talk to me herself. The other reason is that it was kind of hard to have this guilty feeling, so I was planning to talk to her today and set the terms straight.
Surprisingly, she talked to me first. She said "I'm just really tired of fighting and having to avoid you and other people so let's just be friends again or at least on good terms, k?"
EXACTLY what I hoped to hear, and she apologized to me for sending people to me and for what she said about me.
So, we're on good terms right now. I'm not too keen on being all "best friends forever" with her again because I'll still need some time to adjust because I haven't talked to her in about a month.

On a REALLY happy note, at LEVEL 95 to end, I HAVE OFFICIALLY BEATEN KINGDOM HEARTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!~~~ ^^ I was sooooo happy!! ^^ I also beat Sephiroth and it didn't take very long~ ^^
But what depressed me was that Sora FINALLY found Riku and Mickey and then they had to stay behind the Kingdom Hearts door and fight off the darkness after ALL of that! Not to mention, Sora and Kairi ended up being separated in the end T____T It was really sad, especially when Riku told Sora to take care of Kairi T____T
So! My next goal is to get Kingdom Hearts CoM and Kingdom Hearts 2!!~~ ^^ YAY! I absolutely can't wait! *squeals*

And on a REALLY sad and kind of annoyed note, suicide posts, "I want to leave because everyone hates me and I'm no good in this world" posts, are starting to come back again after a break from them. I REALLY don't like it when people say they want to kill themselves because I think that it's absolutely one of the most selfish acts anyone could do for the people that care about them. I just wish that they would think and have more faith in life and just not see all of the bad stuff. On top of that, when that happens people get misunderstood and they start assuming things that aren't even talked about. *sighs*
I'm really sorry about that rant but seriously, the past experience with Priestess was not helping when these situations started coming up again.
T_____T *sigh*

And I'm going to try to work more with colored pencils and think more about how I color with them and maybe even work on my style a lot more! I've recently gotten inspiration to do watercolors so I'm going to try and practice that~ along with that, I've also had a sudden surge of wanting to work on my manga and develop my storyline more ^^ *jumps around* and so I'm feeling really happy about a lot of things right now ^^
Gosh, this post ended up being really long 0_____o Take care everyone and thankies for the wonderful comments, hugs and faves they made me feel even happier! *huggles you all* I'll definitely have to do my part and return the favor~ See you everyone!

It's been awhile!!!~

I'm drawing further and further away from theotaku T____T It's becuase everything's so new and it's a little more disorganized...I kind of don't like it much anymore.
I'll get myself back into the "otaku" vibe but I can't just go around and find people's profile's anymore like I used to on myotaku I have to go find something in their portfolio or something like that...*sighs*
But! I'll get used to it!
I'm submitting a new piccy right now~ hopefully it shows up soon ^^
I hope everyone starts coming back! Otaku seems more and more dead as I go >___< like I barely hear from a lot of the people on here and I don't know if they know I'm here because I don't get a pm or comment saying they're here...
Or maybe I'm just being paranoid ^^;;;;
I'll just have to be patient!~ I know you guys wouldn't leave me alone here(though some of my friends have left for DA but I sure hope you guys stay)~
Well it'll be a short post today ^^ Take care you guys!
