I am very addicted to this song:

Here's the mp3 if anyone wants it: Headlights - TV.

I also uploaded a few of their other songs which I enjoyed. Aw man, they're so awesome, and cute, and charming.

Headlights - Lullabies
Headlights - Cherry Tulips

Anyway, still working on that one-shot with Schumie, and hopefully I won't take too long with it.

And now for something completely unrelated )

I passed my class 5 road test.


In celebration, I bought myself a sketchbook, a tub thing of varnish and 4 magazines. Came to... more money that I should've spent (plus the money I spent on the lisence) but hey! I was happy!

Then I spent most of the day yesterday drawing Johnny.
A bit of today too, although I would've finished earlier if I hadn't gotten lost trying to get home from Staples.

pilot_star: (Default)
Yeah okay... It was gonna be a lot more Epicâ„¢ than this, but I'm not really sure if it'd get off the ground so I might as well put this up.

So yeah, this was for a kink at the kink meme: steampunk!Phoenix.


So I finally watched Children of Men today! I've been waiting forever to watch that movie, so now I'm in a good mood. And I can't stop thinking about it.
I thought it was pretty good, but I generally like movies about bleak dystopias. I have genres that I like for specific mediums, and for movies, dystopia is the one. And I also like dramas.

I tried reading the book too, a while back. Couldn't get past chapter 3.

For books, I generally like epic fantasies with lots of action. I haven't read a good one in a while, actually. I pretty much hate reading anything else.

For manga, I like shounen manga with lots of fighting and action cause they're so exciting. 8D Damn, I love cheesy fight scenes. And I guess I also like suspense titles like Monster and 20th Century Boy.

And for pretty much any medium, I hate vampires. I don't even know why I hate them so much, it just feels like they're all the same and everything has been done before. The only vampire book I really thought was different was Sunshine by Robin McKinley. That was a really good book.

Edit: My site overhaul is done! PLEASE TAKE A LOOK!

Also: [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint got P3: FES and started to play it. Turns out some of the dungeon BGM's were remixes from Persona 2 (and maybe Persona: Revelations?). I thought she was going to CRY.

I'm... kinda procrastinating on my commissions...

I'm not really sure what pics I should watermark and what I shouldn't, because apparently my stuff has been turning up on 4chan quite frequently. I don't mind or anything, I just watermark so that if someone wants to visit my site, they can.


Epsilon )

Time for some SBR doodles.

lolwut? )

14 volumes of text-heavy fabulous posing takes longer to get through than I thought.
Especially when I keep stopping to draw fanart. Which may or may not be a good thing, I guess...

hur... hur hur hur )

My sister started to read Steel Ball Run after seeing some rather pretty covers, (and exclaiming her surprised that this is the same person who drew Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. I guess his style really has evolved, huh.) not to mention some of the more fabulous (LOLWUT?) ones.

Anyway, so I really did like the cover of Vol 10, it's very nice no matter how you look at it, so I started to read it too. Might as well.

....It's fabulous.
Actually, it's a lot less fabulous than the covers suggest, but hey, we have impossible physics and ridiculous costumes and overly dramatic shocked expressions, rubbery people who get tossed around, all in a world that generally works in a very strange way, and when you put all those things together you get an awesome comic that you can't help but love.

And because those costumes are so ridiculous (I honestly don't think any other mangaka can get away with them) I just had to draw fanart. I just haaadd to.

So, Johnny and Gyro, from Steel Ball Run:

I'm not usually one for memes (I'm way too lazy) but I thought this one was cute.

1. Pick a fictional character that you like
2. Draw him/her in what you wore today.

The only reason I got changed today was to get a refund on a bag of weed-killer.

I haven't done any homework all weekend. Go me.
I decided to be a complete procrastinator for the last two weeks. I'll just take things as they come.

Anyway, my class has this sort of sketchbook thing going on that we're selling to raise money for our class, and I'm putting 3 sketches in. I was going to put my previous Godspeed sketch in, but when I looked at it again I thought it didn't feel up to par, so I re-sketched him.

Commissioner Godspeed again )

The sketchbook won't only have my stuff in, it'll have lots of awesome stuff from my classmates (they're really awesome). I'm not sure how many pages it'll be but I think they're gonna sell for $10.00 CAD each. Give me a hollah if you're interested. 8D

So, I think I sketch a lot better on paper, as opposed to on computer. It just feels more natural, and I'm also not staring at a screen.
It's better to ink with tablet though. I actually like inking on paper more, but with the tablet I don't have to clean the scans, which I hate doing.

I sketched this pic of young!Jade on paper and inked it in photoshop. To practice inking and toning and all the good stuff.

Howl, is that you? )

So a few days ago, the goggles I ordered arrived! Jubilations!

My parents have gotten completely used to seeing shit from "Army Surplus" show up at my house. I don't think anything can shock them after the gas mask.

Goggles! )

A few classmates saw the Squenix competition over at dA and said:
"Hey, Nuu, YOU should enter! You like japanimation and stuff like that!"

But... I never play Square enix games... The last one I played was Final Fantasy IX.

I doubt I'll win even if I enter, so I'll pass.

Anyway, a few sketches, Tales of Abyss and Ace Attorney ones.

Here's a sketch I did for an art trade for the totally awesome [livejournal.com profile] kay_willow for her totally awesome fic.
I'm not worthy.

Jade, Peony, and braids )

ToA sketches, may have Spoilers for Ace Attorney 4 )


So me and [livejournal.com profile] hiphopelephant haven't really made progress on our 40-chapter-fanfiction, but hey, I did draw Feenie in coveralls. Which... doesn't really say anything about anything, I guess. But it's a start.

Industrial!Phoenix )

And some Apollo/Klavier. No, I haven't gotten over it yet.

Nappy time? )

And now I should probably leave for a photoshoot. I wonder if they'll let me take their products out of the store. :/ :/
pilot_star: (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] heart_mint bought me a cookie, and demanded fanart in exchange.

And it seemed like mafia!guys is like the only thing she likes in the world or something, so she told me to draw Jade and Peony, Chinese Mafia style.
...I don't see how that's different from any other mafia, so I drew them Chinese Mafia style.

Jade/Peony mafia style )

Anyway, so I was doodling a bit more because my tablet was being a bitch and refused to work all of last night, and also because it was earth hour (although that honestly had nothing to do with anything, I just lay there for an hour), and when I read this Jade/Peony doujin where Peony throws up after Jade kills someone in front of him, and I thought this really strong.
Well, these things:

  1. Why is Peony being a jackass for no apparent reason?

  2. I really think that Peony knows how to fight. I mean he might not actually do anything, but I really think he actually knows how to fight.

Then my mind started to wander off into the territory of... Hm, I wonder what he looks like when he's training. He probably spars with Jade too.

feklah/sehigew? )


The other day I was talking to my friend and sending random oldie Chinese music videos to her, because I'm a dork like that. (Yes, I can sing all those songs. Sort of)

So I sent her the video for Shanghai Bund, a classic Chinese television series.

Man, I love that song. I'm gonna keep watching the video until I can sing it.

But I regress.
My friend asked me: "Did you know they're remaking this show? It's filmed in China."

I am intrigued.

She then shows me the opening video for the remake (if the song sounds different, it's because it's in Mandarin):

And holy shit, there shouldn't be so much concentrated sexy in one place.

Considering that I bought and watched Blood Brothers for the 1930's Shanghai setting, this show seems right up my alley.

The main problem now is that my Mandarin isn't great and I can't read simplified Chinese.
Maybe I can find a copy with traditional Chinese subtitles somewhere...?
pilot_star: (Default)
Woohoo, I finished the pic!
When I was colouring, I was going to fill in the flat colours so that when I shaded it I could just use "preserve transparency" and not worry about colouring outside the lines, except when I was done, I didn't really feel like shading it anymore.
So I just lay a gradient on top.


Emperor and Necromancer )

By the way, does anyone have any good Jade/Peony fics to rec to me? They're hard to come by.

I had to do this assignment where I had to make a map of sorts, so I decided to do... the Court of the Air. From the book The Court of the Air. I took it out again because I forgot the place names (Middlesteel and Grimhope, it turned out), and flipping through it kinda made me want to read it again. Maybe later.

And of course, all that rambling was somehow supposed to lead into the fact that I sketched out a pic of Nathanial and Oliver. I can't remember what Oliver was. The line of Defense?

In any case.

I'm still here, Oliver. )

Easter weekend was well spent -- lying around, eating chocolate, drawing fanart... Ah.

In any case, I was trying to force [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint and [livejournal.com profile] hiphopelephant into helping me fill one of the kinks at the kink meme, (if anon sees this I guess I won't be so anonymous anymore...) and it started to go completely off rail into the realm of The-40-Chapter-Fanfiction-Complete-With-Concept-Art-And-Illustrations.
Not that I'm really complaining, but it's gotten to the point where if you switch the names of the main characters (*coughcoughphoenixandedgeworthcough*) it can be another story.

It could be interesting if we ever actually do it.

But I digress.

So I was thinking that, despite being my favorite pairing in Tales of Abyss, I've never actually drawn any fanart of Jade/Peony. I've drawn plenty of Jade back in the day (I feel old now) but Peony was hard enough to find concept art of as is, and I just never got around to drawing him.

Which is something I must rectify.

I was working on the lineart of this over the weekend, I'm done now and I've started to fill in the flat colours, but when I took a screencap I was only done their faces, so.

Jade + Peony = Awesome )

And then, of course, I asked [livejournal.com profile] hiphopelephant what I should draw, and she said: "MAAACHIIIIIII".
I told her I'd draw her some steamy Daryan/Machi.
In which she replied "MAAAACHIIIIIII".

Which made no sense to me, but I assumed that was a yes, so I went ahead and drew steamy Daryan/Machi.

Steamy Daryan/Machi )

Something (rather) amusing happened to me the other day but... I'll post about it later.

Another AA art dump, cause I never get tired of it.


Also, another pic I drew to fill out one of the kinks at the kink meme.
I don't have a thumbnail for it but I'll make one later.

AU-ville )

Also, my sister promised to drive me to a hat store if I drew Klavier shirtless, so shirtless I did.

shirtless!klavier )

And... yeah, that's about it. I wonder if I can skip my next class.
pilot_star: (Default)
This is... a collaboration of sorts. I guess. It sorta worked out this way.

My sister, [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint wrote the story, and I drew the accompanying pictures.

It's about AU AA-ville, where Phoenix never becomes a lawyer and instead becomes head of a mafia famiglia. 8D 8D

Title: Honor Among Thieves
Fandom: Ace Attorney
Author: [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] steam_pilot
Rating: G
Pairing: Phoenix/Miles? Sorta?

His heart hammers inside his chest even as the surprise disappears from his face. )

I think this had to do with her promising to write fanfic if I drew fanart for it.
So, there you go.
pilot_star: (Default)
Yesterday I was chatting and doodling, and I was supposed to be judging the HS contest too but I kinda procrastinated on that (sorry everyone) so I ended up with some AA doodles.

And this is where I get lazy with the watermarking... v___v So some are watermarked, some aren't. Oh, whatever.

Good 'ol phoenix/miles )

Mafia!Miles )

And lastly, because I drew Klavier with Kristoph's nervous habit, I decided to also draw Kristoph with Klavier's nervous habit.

ZING!! )
pilot_star: (Default)
I'm supposed to be making thumbnails right now, but since I'm completely blank on ideas, I'll post up more of those scratchy doujins I'm fond of drawing.

And, wow, I finally fucking used a ruler this time!

Oh wait, I'll post Ema first.
This is a pic of Ema, I drew it for my cousin.

Scientifically speaking, the lab coat is not necessary. )

And here's the doujin.
Slight OOC-ness.
Hell, who am I kidding.


Maybe I should give it a name and everything as if it were a real doujin.

Title: Hints (?)
Pairing: Klavier/Apollo, as per usual.
Summary: Apollo is insensitive.

Hints )
pilot_star: (Default)
...This has absolutely nothing to do with Oofuri. Sorry. ;___;

Uhhhm, anyway.
More Apollo/Klavier, cause... I don't even know why I like them so much. I just do!
So, yeah, more of that scribbly doujin stuff.

Not spoilery )
pilot_star: (Default)
A quick post before I go out to get pizza.

I'm rather fond of drawing doujin, believe it or not. >__>
Although I think that I'd never ever get around to inking and toning everything, so scribbly is the way to go. At least I have it done.


Another Apollo/Klavier one. Sortof.
It's a little spoilery, but if you haven't played it yet you wouldn't know what's being spoiled, so I don't think it matters.

I'm fine!! )
pilot_star: (Default)
My sis was whining at me to draw this until I drew it, so draw I did:

Phoenix, Godfather Style )
pilot_star: (Default)
I finished the illustration that's due today, it took less time than I thought it would.

schizophrenia )

I also finished the background for a magazine layout, which took less time than I thought it would.
And to celebrate, I had to go into pchat to draw Apollo Justice fanart!

HERE COMES JUSTICE (don't worry, no spoilers) )
