and i got my color back!

Hello! I finally got over my jet lag (i think)!
I had a great time back in my hometown, Manila! ^o^ ♥

I had lots of fun and also lots of rest and I feel so refreshed (and also kind of sad because I miss my relatives and my dog…and the food) – Now that I think about it – being back here in New York in winter feels so much sadder because of the gloomy surroundings ((compared to the colorful and lively neighborhood back home – it’s been 2 years since I was able to visit Manila aahh)) ///// anyway, here are some photos from our flight stopover in Taiwan Taoyuan Airport!

Thank you so much for your well wishes everyone, I really appreciate it!
I hope to upload lots of new art starting next week (and will resume working on that MM art book♥)

I couldn’t do 707 Route while I was there, I had no mobile internet and the WiFi everywhere was super slow ;;v;; Now that I’m back, I still can’t do the route because the app won’t let me change my time zone (it still doesn’t recognize Daylight Savings Time)!!! //cries because now I won’t be able to play the new update hhHHHNNN

Also – my fave photo of all (it’s me beside a mirror) vvvvvvvvvvvvv

things my youngsters did today at work

  • one ten year old boy who was standing on two different scooters was being all sassy and told me that he wouldn’t get off and i couldn’t make him so then i lifted him off of it and he just said oh
  • “christmas is girly” said by a seven year old boy
  • that same seven year old boy saying “pink is my favorite color okay it’s manly” 
  • a six year old boy with a lisp said “god damn it” twice and i’m just like child…. CHILD
  • a fourth grade boy actually stole a golf ball from the bowling alley that we had to take back later
  • “dirt is made of plants” “no dirt is made of dirt” 
  • “people can drink beer at 18, right?” 
  • one little girl going to the bathroom like 17 times and after the first 3 i’d make a joke every time and she got all smiley 

I’M BAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!

It feels good to be back again! Honestly I’m surprised at how long the colored hair lasted. But I’m all for symbolic gestures so much like when I shaved my head at the start of this whole YouTube thing I think it’s good to be back for this coming year. I’ve got a lot of ambitious things to accomplish this year and the only way I’m going to get there is with hard work and discipline. So let’s get started on the right foot before the new year even arrives!

i just pledged 10 bucks (which means 34 of my currency) to The Arcana kickstarter. please please  please  pledge to those guys because idk man i have the feeling this could be really awesome. there’s only little more than 5 days to go and they’re only 55% backed. please. for 10 dollars you get the entire pdf of the artbook, and if like only half my followers pledged we’d have nearly 4k donated

perks of backing The Arcana

  • you get to choose your (the main character’s) pronouns
  • the creators say you can have all flavors of romance gender-wise
  • you’ll be supporting lgbt adults to make an inclusive game
  • as in: lgbt people doing lgbt material
  • it’s got choices
  • it’s got beautiful artwork with beautiful colors and beautiful lines
  • you’ll only get charged if they reach their goal, as is kickstater’s regular thing
  • it’ll be in your phone so whenever the artwork is too beautiful you can just screenshot it to gawk at it later (no shame. i do it way too often)

downsides of backing The Arcana

  • literally i don’t know

here’s some official artwork and screencaps of the game to prove my point about the gorgeousness

december

I didn’t make it very far. the farmers all slept in today when they should’ve been out beating down the foot of snow on the gravel roads for me. my little putt putt isn’t up to that level of snow. I made a small loop and almost got stuck several times and decided to head back. still. 

Cars 1: fun-but-serious typical Pixar story, has loveable characters and a real moral, ends on a happy note.

Cars 2: literal shit show ft. Micheal Caine, v bubbly and colorful, belongs on playhouse Disney.

Cars 3: Hi my name is Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way and I have long ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) with purple streaks and red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Amy Lee (AN: if u don’t know who she is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Gerard Way but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I’m also a witch, and I

Some more of the Pink Pooka.

I just like doing these they allow me to sketch fast but ad some sorta color/finish?

Also no dont worry lil fairy bean is not being replaced. I love both these.

Thing was this bun is actually a sona I had a few years back. I really liked em but kinda got reluctant to use them cause I didnt think they were special enough. Now I dont care and Im splurging a few years worth of suppressed bunny feels so forgive me.

Plus I love alliteration and Pink Pooka sounds too damn cute.

I was gonna do a bunch more with Tsuyu holding his books, Todoroki holding his lunch tray while they tried to find a table, Kirishima holding Izuku on his back while Kaminari tried out the crutches

but I got really worn out cause I’ve been working on these since 11 this morning

I think I went a little overboard putting male Robin in a yukata

But I got the idea from an otome game I play bc I was admiring the kitsune mask of my fave chara (who also has white hair lol) which was my main insp for this and I was like…you know who else has a purple/gold color scheme and also has white hair? ROBIN.

Bonus: Robin’s a youkai or is the vessel of a demon spirit (like Grima lol)

Old Vs New

I have drawn fire twilight way back in 2012, (Before she got her awesome wings). Its interesting to compare old vs new work. Anatomy definitely is different. Theres more color than just red and orange, plus you can actually tell her body is white.  Pose is more interesting with her in a lower stance than simply standing, and of course the fire is more lively too.

Theres still plenty I could improve on, but for now its good to see what has changed, and learn from the mistakes. To fellow artists, don’t fret about mistakes, get good critique feedback and work at it. It’s what helps us learn.

Anon: so I was rewatching flower bromance episode where jin & jimin react to jungkook’s “date” with shinhwa’s minwoo. and I realized jimin always had his own comment about jungkook, like “no, he’s not like that though” or “he only does that to me”. of course jungkook’s relationship with each members are different but it’s more like kook/min always have their own private time where other members don’t… 

Yes, I noticed that too! And they both do it all the time. It’s like they have this constant need to one up or remind other people that they know more about each other than the rest. Jimin is dead serious when he says he’s confident in knowing the most about Jungkook. And he’s right, he has two awards to back it up. But JK also does it too, even if he gets it wrong, he’s really enthusiastic about shouting out the answer anyway  (he got Jimin’s exact height wrong by 0.1 cm..).

Honestly, even in group settings they focus on what the other is doing/saying at all times. Like the fact that Jimin knows what JK does every morning as soon as he gets up, while the others had no clue.. even though they all live together. You can even see it action when they’re on camera. Jimin was telling everybody that his favorite number was 3 and JK got all excited and said something like “oh, mine’s 13!” Nobody cared except Jungkook.. like that shit legitimately made him happy. That’s freakin’ adorable.
