A CG, it's the cover to the doujin that me, [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint and [livejournal.com profile] cloverx had to rush and finish before Anime Evolution to sell it there.

We named it Divina. Cause we're awesome like that, yo. )

I didn't expect too many people to be interested, so I went with a super limited run, but we still have quite a few left over, so if you're interested, pop over here and grab one. Sorry, it's SOLD OUT. But the poster is still available.

If you want any more information... it IS mafia AU. The same one we've been piddling around with for months now. It DOES include the bits I've been putting on my LJ, plus stuff I drew specially for it. Overall it expands on everything a little more and wraps it up.

Anyway, check that out if you're interested, thanks!

P.S. Anime Evolution was fun, but that's for another entry.

ETA: I kinda forgot to mention that the original stories were drawn as contest entries to the Apollo/Klavier comm. Then it just kinda got out of control and I ended up with... well... what I have here I guess.

1. [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint keeps telling me to stop looking at the pw kink meme. Coming from someone who lives on 4chan, that request(?) holds absolutely zero water.

2. My photoshop seems to be acting up, for some reason. I thought that my monitor was strange because the colours were completely off, but then it turned out it's only that way when anything is viewed in photoshop. What the hell? Is there some sort of preference thing I can poke around with?

3. There was supposed to be a point to that... I think the point was that I was drawing Futomimi to test it out, and it looked completely different. In any case...

Nice lipstick. )

4. I was randomly sketching out characters of one of our original stories, and these are two characters, both are girls. I've got a name for one of them, but not the other. I'm really bad with coming up with names.

Read more... )

5. I watched the opening ceremony.

6. [livejournal.com profile] sarahofcroydon was asking for ideas on what sport Klavier would fit into, and I rambled incoherently about this and that, suggesting some sport that wasn't swimming.

Not swimming because I don't like speedos, unfortunately. Just personal preference.

Afterwards, I sat down in front of the telly and watched the olympics. They don't wear speedos anymore. Instead they wear these legskin (or bodyskin) things that all of a sudden made all the swimmers ten times hotter in my book, and this goes for all the girls as well.

So I rambled incoherently some more... and long story short, Klavier in a swimsuit. Speedo.

Go for the gold, Klavier. Go for the gold. )

7. Watermarked cause I'm paranoid. It's a bit late to be posting, sorry if I'm not making any sense. Umbrella.

8. I don't want to paint. I don't like painting because it makes a mess and it's a hassle to clean up. I like CG because there's no mess and if I screw up I can undo. Why can't I CG for school instead?

Dear Journal:

Nothing interesting happened to me today. I accidentally tried to use the phone while my mom was on it.

Pchat doodles: SMT:Nocturne, AA:AJ, Original )

Also: I am so psyched about the Watchmen movie.

I meant to post this before, but I somehow forgot...
I really like this fic. Hur. Hur hur hur.
pilot_star: (Default)
Why is it raining? It's supposed to be summer right now. :C

So, I'm almost done with shipping of preorders, as basically I just need to buy (a lot) more stamps and mail them out.

As for anyone who received it, were the books okay? They weren't damaged in the mail or anything, were they? Wrapping them in newsprint seemed like the best idea... or the only idea, really. I didn't really like doing that at first, because it didn't look very good... but eventually (and after much experimenting) I found a solution that finally satisfied my own desire for nice packaging. And the answer lies in... stickers.


Anyway, I've forcefully drafted Schumie into the war helping me do a really long Ace Attorney doujin. What the hell am I talking about, you ask? Well, I'll give you a hint. A really big hint.
Mafia AU.

In all honesty, I don't expect very many people to be all that interested in this, so this is to satisfy my inner fangirl test a book printer that's near by and seems pretty good. But hey. It has Phoenix. And Miles. And pinstripes. And they also smoke a lot. And pinstripes automatically makes everything 108.4% better.

So I was working on one of the pages yesterday, (and I promised Schumie that I wouldn't take a screenshot of this, but broken promises are the only real ones, right?) and I asked Schumie how I should lay out the words, and she drew me a few sketches on msn that let me know exactly how I should lay it out.

Here is the page in question )

But, that's been life for me. Oh, I also got two new pairs of glasses. I was gonna get just one pair, but my dad liked another pair better, so he told me to get them both. I have no idea how I'm gonna wear two pairs of glasses, but hey, he offered.

Also: my demon Chiaki cosplay is 90% complete.


Liar Liar

So, did you ever read this particular AJ doujin I drew and think: "Gee, I would sure like to have some back story on this dark-yet-fascinating Alternate Universe!"

*crickets chirp*

WELL, if you did, then golly whiz, I have come to grant the requests in your faint afterthoughts!

So, this is the second part of my entry, I guess, for the contest over at [livejournal.com profile] kyodoroki. It still has no sex. Or rock. But it still has thugs, fortunately.

I'm not gonna bother with the proper-like this time... Except for the WARNING: AU.

Liar Liar )

Much love to [livejournal.com profile] jinsunpyo_18 for painstakingly helping me revise every single line. Thanks, Jenn!
And also to [livejournal.com profile] oneleaf_clover for taking out lots of words, but not before giving me a grammar lecture.
And also, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint for tearing me a new one, then taking out entire lines of script.

Anyway, this is probably the last thing I'm drawing for this particular AU, although that doesn't rule out other AU's... I lied.

But, thanks for reading, if you got through the whole thing.
pilot_star: (Default)
...When I told Schumie to watch out or I'll somehow end up drawing Apollo Justice doujin, I wasn't even lying. T___T

This was drawn for the "Sex, Thugs and Rock and Roll" contest over at [livejournal.com profile] kyodoroki.
It uh. It doesn't have any sex. But it has some thugs.
And it has drugs. And... it doesn't have any rock. Or roll.


And I just love fluff, so I guess that's exactly why the first time I ever write anything close to a fic, it's something like this.

Okay, I'll do this all proper-like.

Title: The Gas and the Lighter
Rating: PG-13, nothing graphic.
Warnings: AU, red splatches that is meant to resemble blood.
Summary: When Apollo finally entered the room, it was a mess.

Edit: OH I forgot to say that [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint helped me proofread the script. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] heart_mint, I owe you cookies.


Edit3: ALSO, [livejournal.com profile] mistr3ssquickly wrote me a fic that's plays with the title of this story, so GO READ IT NOW. (it has smut)

Or at least, the far wall was. )

If it's confusing, I'm really sorry. It's not that confusing, right?

Schumie and I were sort-of planning something like this (comic narrative) so I guess this is sorta... practice? (There's my excuse, Schumie.)

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 )
pilot_star: (Default)
For a kink at the kink meme, although I'm pretty sure I didn't read it correctly. The kink itself was kinda like three requests in one, so I just used my selective information absorption.

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.
pilot_star: (Default)
I was filling out a kink over at the PW kink meme, and the kink was Klaver/Apollo, kicking ass and taking names.
As in, cheesy yet epic fight scenes. fighting back-to-back.

Yeah, I love those, so I decided to take it on, even though I've never drawn a full action-scene before.
And I finally used my trusty MODESKIN KNOCKOFF (tm) book, so what the hey.

Warning: Romance (or bromance?), cheesy fight scenes, meaningful look exchanges, breaching laws of physics (physics police please don't arrest me), general OOC-ness, refusal to use rulers.


Thank-you, youtube instructional videos. I had to do a lot of research on meteor hammers to draw this.

Also, THANK YOU [livejournal.com profile] hiphopelephant ILU.
OH YES and thanks [livejournal.com profile] panda_ne for the German help. x___x
pilot_star: (Default)
I used to call it Phoenix Wright, until it stopped being about Phoenix.

Then I called it Ace Attorney, but now it's not about attorneys anymore.


But aside from that, FANGASM.
pilot_star: (Default)
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)
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 )
pilot_star: (Default)
Honestly, I think that in my mind, somehow, Hobohodou and Phoenix are two different people. Is that weird?

Anyway, I did some sketches of Hobohodou (practicing abs cause I was annoyed at myself for not being able to draw them). I still can't draw abs very well. More practice for me I s'pose.

hobohodou )

And another scribbly doujin, this one was where I was practicing cleaning pencil scans so it's a bit cleaner. I hate cleaning pencil scans.

Not much of a pairing, maybe Kristoph + Phoenix friendship? You can probably read it as Kristoph/Phoenix if you really wanted to.

Spoilers for 4-4

I hate you )

pilot_star: (Default)
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!! )
