Our Club Situation T^T
2007-03-09 14:15:01
Hey again! =) At the moment Steve, our prez, is under a bit of stress. T__T As you guys may or may not know… there are a couple of clubs we’re ‘competing’ against. =( We are an anime society of a major university in Australia; University of Sydney =). However, there are many other societies, but the ones we’re mostly competing with are in Sydney, New South Wales too. They are also major universities of Australia; University of New South Wales, and University of Technology Sydney. =) Our club is SUAnime (Sydney Uni Anime), UNSW’s one is AnimeUNSW, while UTS’s one is Anime@UTS. =D These universities have fairly powerful anime societies, so it’s hard for us to compete against them, especially since VSU (a government legislation) passed, plus the fact that last year, we had an un-aspiring president… and nothing happened D= D= So Steve, our FEARLESS LEADER =P is having a bit of trouble working with this, we’ll have to work a bi...

2007-03-07 20:13:01
hahh…. orientation week is finally over!! ^^; We got over 100 members to join our anime club… and it was hectic! XD It’s been an eventful busy 3 days, but it’s finally done!!! *collapses from exhaustion* Phew~~~ now that O-Week is over, I can finally start on some of my own drawing projects! I’m not exactly sure, but I think Yuriko has given up on her manga project… though I don’t think thats a good thing, I’m ok with her decision. This would mean more time to work with my own manga project and my own drawing projects. =D =D Though I was working on a picture that was from her manga project though… oh well XD Well, I’m like half-dead right now, so I’m gonna head to bed =_=

GAAAHHH! I?VE HAD ENOUGH OF PHOTOSHOP!!

I’M SO SICK OF PHOTOSHOP’S UNTAPERED LINES, IT’S ALL BLOBBY *SCREAMS AROUND THE HOUSE* Look LOOK LOOK!!!11121fdsafdsajkl; LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE!! It might be a bit hard to see in that one… take a look at this one!!! *RAGE* BLOBBY UNTAPERED LINES!!!?? I’VE HAD ENOUGH OF YOUR UNTAPERED EVILNESS!! DX DX THAT’S IT, I’M SWITCHING BACK TO OPENCANVAS!! *calms down* Anyway, on a more useful note, I’ll give a few tips on these stuff =D Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, if you don’t know what OpenCanvas is, it’s a cheap anime drawing (though not limited to) program. The site can be found here: http://portalgraphics.net/en OpenCanvas is great for learning, but it’s by far not as powerful as Photo shop… that’s why I used it in the first place O_O. Photos hop is faster too, and it can do a lot more stuff. There’s another program that I use sometimes, and it’s called Painter. Painter can make the finest of ...

Learning Japanese Through Reading Manga
2007-02-16 20:06:01
When I went to Japan , my knowledge of reading Japanese was almost non-existent. So much foreign words that I could not understand. O_O That was until we started to get some japanese manga =D Yes I did do japanese when I was still in highschool. But that was almost 6 years ago now D=. I had forgotten almost everything! XD or so I thought =P When I picked up a manga to try and read it, I was surprised how much hiragana I still knew from learning in high school! =D Though I had to ask my brothers a couple of times (one is studying japanese in high school right now, and another one learned it through some computer program =D), I could read out the words with little problem, since the Kanji (or the chinese characters) had some hiragana next to them so the ‘little children’ can read it too XD. Good thing it was in Furigana, otherwise, I would have given up loong time ago! =D Anyway then it came up to the Katakana! o_0 I never had seen these before! I didn’t do anything ...

My Drawings Compared between A Rusty Car to a Ferrari???! O_O
2007-02-16 20:06:01
D= D= At yesterdays Anime club meet, my work was compared to a poster’s art. The president said “to be honest if you compared your work to that poster, it would be like comparing a Rusty Car to a Ferrari !” WAAAAAHHHH!!! ?A?; If people are curious, this is what he compared: to This Picture o_O (sorry! I couldn’t get the full poster pic so this will have to do XD) D= D= D= But now that I think about it, my picture doesn’t really compare to the likes of pictures like these: O_O This picture is sooo purrtyyy XD My club president wants my skill level to be around this level!! O_O Talk about high expectations! XD It might take a while for me to get my drawings up to this level… or it may take me no time at all! XD XD Anyway! Gotta get back to practicing to meet my prezzy’s expectations before the uni year starts! =D P.S. Oh yeah btw buy tickets for Eminence! (not that I’m advertising it or anything >_> _

Anime Club Mascot? Coloured!
2007-02-09 08:04:02
Wanna see it? =D Wanna see how I did it? XD It’s done! I’ve coloured it! =D If you want to see the original lineart or the sketch they are here respectively: Finished Club Mascot Design!, New Anime Mascots. It wasn’t really required of me to coloured as the job of an Art Director but I liked how it came out, so I coloured it! =P Something about it annoys me though, in the end something is bothering me… Maybe it’s because it looks kinda boyish? O_O Anyway if you want out how I made this anime picture… sorry! D= I don’t really think I’m all that good enough to make a tutorial soon! But it seems I will make a couple soon, because some people has asked me to make some tutorials as an Art Director of my Anime society! =P That makes me so happy! But I still feel I’m not good enough yet… =) Maybe I need to keep improving my anime drawing skills >_> Anyway I’ll leave it to you to decide! Comments and crits welcome!

The Manga is Good? What Makes It So?
2007-02-07 14:01:01
I’ve always wanted to make a manga of my own. I’m sure there are other people out there who are also aspiring to make their own comic. But I’ve been thinking… what makes a manga good? Since I’m now the art director of my anime society, I now have the ‘power’ to create my own manga. It’s true that I could have done it before, but now I can get more people to join in and help me out in this quest to create our own graphic novel. I’ve got another friend to help me out with this, and hopefully I can get more people as the year goes by. I’m just the drawer for this manga, though. My friend will be the writer. =D For now I’ll hold off my manga project for when I feel I’m ready to take this beast on =P. Anyway, we’ve gone far with the story, and my friend (who goes by the pen name of Yuriko ^^) is pretty good with story writing. Which lead me to think… what makes a manga good? And I’ve always respond...

Thoughts on Kenshin
2007-02-07 14:01:01
I’ve been hearing all this hype from some friends about Kenshin. But is it as good as the hype says? Watching Kenshin has been an interesting experience for me. It has several good points, and a few bad points that I found from watching this anime… so let me tell it to you all! =D I haven’t quite finished yet but I’ll give my thoughts and current review on it. =) First things first, I don’t like Kenshin’s voice o_0. The fact that Kenshin’s voice sounds like a girl irks me to no end =(. I thought he would sound more like a guy, not a woman -_-. It annoyed me SOOO much that I nearly made the change to the dreaded English dubbed version!! O_O The only reason I went back to the Japanese dub was that Kenshin’s voice in English ALSO annoyed me to no end! XD It was a choice to choose between the lesser evils… XP Anyway, the fact that the Japanese Kenshin sounded like a girl (as if the voice actor didn’t even try to sound like a g...

Finished Anime Club Mascot Design!
2007-02-07 14:01:01
Buahah, it’s finally done! =D I’ve finished the lining, and it took a while… but I want to colour it! Hopefully everyone likes my picture! =) Now that I think about it, I still like the design of this picture. Even if people may not like it =D I’ve often wondered how professional manga drawers come up with the designs for game characters. I’ve always thought, that me being the uncreative person I was, could never do it. But now that I’ve tried it out, it seems like everyone can do it! =D I just draw what ever shape comes to mind when I’m drawing the picture! If you think too critically though, it seems to hamper the creativity. D= Anyway, I’m going to the place where I can print out these pictures Comments and constructive crits would be nice, as I’m continually improving =D

New Anime Mascots
2007-02-07 14:01:01
Whew~! I’ve finally finished the anime mascot designs! =D I drew 3 of them… but to be honest I didn’t really like them. But oh well, I just have to see what the other guys say =D Yep, as you can see, my scanner was being very nice to me XD Well I showed it to everyone at the anime club, and they said they didn’t really like it either D= D= Anyway, after a vote, the favourite one was chosen. =D It was veeery close, with the one on the left being the most popular! XD So I’ll get to work right away! =D =D I only till monday to do it!! THAT’S ONLY 2 DAYS!! XD Heh, not much time to do it eh? But that’s because the deadline of the t-shirts are drawing near… and I need to get them done before uni starts. =) Other wise lots of bad stuff will happen! =P I wanna watch anime though! =)

Me? Designing a New Mascot??
2007-02-07 14:01:01
Ore ga?? It seems like I have to create a new mascot anime club! O_O I am the Art Director so I do have to design things, but this is strange! Here are the previous mascots (sorry I don’t have a clearer image, I couldn’t find any! =3). Interesting… very interesting… =) Not only will I have to design new mascots, they will be put on tote bags and possibly T-SHIRTS TOO!! XD So as usual I will do the designer thing, and create a few designs to see what everyone likes! =D =D Actually I’ve already made the t-shirt designs for the club, so this ain’t that big of a deal… BUT IT’S STILL GREAT!! XD I’ll put up my designs for the tote bags and t-shirts… but that’s for another time =) Anyway! I gotta go back to making those designs! =) My deadline is this friday… WHAT IT’S ONLY TWO DAYS FROM NOW!! D= D= I GOTTA GET TO IT THEN! OvO

Finally Website Design Complete!
2007-01-30 19:59:03
Finally my site design is done! =) Right now it’s still a bit iffy, but I’ll fix that in the future. It seems it doesn’t work well with internet explorer that well for some reason. For some weird reason, internet explorer doesn’t have png transparency. It’s kinda annoying, but the internet explorer people will have to just live with it, cause I ain’t changing it =D. If you want to switch to firefox click this link: It took a lot of tweaking to get the site to where I wanted it to be, but it still has a lot of work before I’m happy with it. But that is for later =)Now, I’m going to post some pictures up for people to see, and the first one will be what you see in the background in the time of writing.I’m going to add more stuff to this site so that it would include reviews of anime I’ve seen, comments on my drawings, helpful hints and insights on increasing your skills in drawing, and my thoughts on my journey to improving...

My Life Story
2007-01-30 19:59:03
Click on the Picture for a Larger version. I had a lot of fun making this picture! =D It just came to me one night… I was just thinking… “If I was a super creative drawer, drawing something for my blog… what would I come up with?” And my mind, being very useful as it was, gave me an emotion-filled picture! (For me anyway XD) Each little detail represents something that has already occurred in my life… or something that was/is a very important feature of my life. — I loved how this picture turned out! =D =D It turned out EXACTLY as I’d hoped it would turn out and I couldn’t be happier!! XD Being a drawer and all, I know that if you get too excited about your completed picture, you ALMOST ALWAYS GET SHUT DOWN! D= But I couldn’t resist! XD I hadn’t felt this excited about my picture since the early days of my drawing! =] So I showed it to my brothers, and they thought it was good (which is good enough for me =D). I th...

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children!!
2007-01-30 07:58:05
YESS!! I HAVE IT!! For so long I've been wanting to watch this 3D movie... the only problem is that I haven't played the game before! XD So I kept waiting and waiting... not exactly sure what I was waiting for though =) I actually played tried to play the game! But being the 3D art enthusiast, I was put off by the cubey arms, the blurry background, and the sluggish graphics -_- So finally, I was in the city, just browsing around, then I saw it… Final Fantasy ! It was calling out to me! especially with it’s low price of $12 I couldn’t resist! ~_~ I just purchased it and plugged it into the DVD player at home… and was washed by the beautiful graphics!! XD Warning! Incoming spoilers! =D =D The action scenes were wonderful! The one that surprised me the most was Tifa’s fight scene. She was so super fast that I was surprised! The animation was perfect and I was in heaven for that short period of time~~ ^^ Not playing the game before, and hearing that Tifa...

Hey, since this is the first post I’ll just tell you guys what I’m about to put here. For now I plan to remake this website into the design I want. Right now, it looks nice, but it isn’t my design. I already have in mind what I plan to draw. Also, this website will be about my life, my thoughts of being an Art Director for my anime club for my uni, drawing in general and my many other interests that may come to mind of writing.
