Anonymous asked: hey, saw ur Natsume fanart and what a lovely palette! loved it. but uh, the character for "Natsu" written there is wrong, (im not sure if it'll show in the ask) but it should be "夏" (summer) instead of "复" (repeat). Hope to see more Natsume fanart from you in the future =)

Hiya! Thank you!

Also yes, the Kanji shows up; Omg I knew something was weird this is why I failed Chinese as well >.> Thanks for letting me know - this is what happens when you copy off tiny tiny dictionary characters and assume you know the character because you know Chinese U_U. I’ve corrected the kanji! 

<3 Have a good week ahead, anon, thanks for helping with this! ^_^

Week 02: Photography, Nature, Architecture, Travel, Animal, Sci-Fi

More drawings from last last week, based on a series of themes from one of my classes. Tried more colour, and had quite a bit of fun alternated with mild, constant panic. 

Here’s to a good week ahead! 

Bunch of 20 min and one 30 min drawings in class today! We’ve been focusing on head construction! I feel like I’m getting a better idea of what heads are supposed to look like. O__o

I felt safe in the circle of your arms.

week 01: abstract, portrait, history, science, Vermeer

Some of the stuff I liked from my first week of school - daily drawings and a reproduction of a Vermeer painting. I kept struggling with being all perfectionisty and self-conscious with these, and I really want to try being more loose and forgiving to myself (in terms of conceptualising and experimenting), and better time management, this week. 

Here’s to a great week ahead, guys!

The stars from off
The ground.

Sketching from yesterday.


A couple of months ago I started writing a science fiction story. It is OH SO INCREDIBLY derivative right now, mostly of C.J. Cherryh’s Alliance/Union Merchanter books and a bit of Karin Lowachee’s Warchild books, but I’m okay with that; it’s first draft, I’m still figuring out the shape of the story and the characters. 

The really awesome thing is the friends who are cheering me on with this— nezumiko, gunmetal-blue, saunterleftside, iamtehzuul, and, as of last night, leiaham! Everybody’s given great feedback and suggestions and ideas, but leiaham really went above and beyond. She asked idly last night what I thought the ship fatigues I’d described in the story looked like, so I hauled up some examples of pictures I’d saved, and thought nothing more of it.


From the top, that’s Gendou, ship’s pilot; Ki-tae and Jianmin, engineers/cooks/gunners/muscle; and Ryuusei, refugee and stowaway. Captain Riy Sambar is unseen, which is probably good because I switched her gender about 10 minutes after Leia drew this. Muscular lady spaceship captains for the win!

:D :D :D 
*has nothing to say but is beaming very widely*

IT IS SUCH A COOL AU GUYS. You should also totally go look at all their writing at ANBU Legacy if you’re into Naruto. :D 

Things are looking up! 

… which has no bearing on how happy my drawings are, apparently. (Also please ignore my disembodied finger, I no longer have access to a scanner. Once I do I’ll post up actual sketchbook pages! ;A:)
