Was watching my sis play Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World for the past few days. I guess that means I have to draw fanart...

Fanarts + Thoughts )

That about sums it up. Emil is gay for Richter. Richter is gay for Aster.

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. :/ :/

[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...?

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 )
