A Drafty Marisa Kirisame

ZUN Touhou Marisa Kirisame
(… She blew something up again, didn’t she.) Like last year, I am making art for all my school binders, which is kind of lame, because it means that instead of ogling the pretty design supplies with polka-dots and frogs on them, I opt for the egregiously dull plain solid colors. Yaaaay.

Touhou Tablet Doodles

Hakurei Reimu AS A COW

So I got a tablet. So my brother got a tablet for his birthday and uh, I stole it. In this post you will see the fruits of my practice with this AMAZING DEVICE in a motley of programs. Also, I haven’t used the word motley for a really long tme. Motley motley motley motley motley motley motley

What you see above is none other than Hakurei Reimu as uh… err… a cow (Reimu? RayMOO? Hahahahahah). Made in Paint Tool Sai, which I downladed eons ago and which the trial ran out for, so I sort of had to take a screenshot of the image (free trial expiring disables the save/export functions -.-…). But wait, there’s MORE…

Puzzling Professor Layton Wallpaper

Intriguing Professor Hershel Layton Wallpaper

Professor Layton in rufous red

Ain’t it minimalist? I made it in Adobe Fireworks out of curiosity to see what I could do after adjusting so much to Photoshop and its far superior library of tools and out of a need for a Professor Layton background. Anyway, here we have Hershel Layton in a puzzling red wallpaper. Click the image for the full size.

Vocaloid Gakupo Chibi | (+ Minamimoto Stuff!)

Vocaloid Gakupo, the dancing samurai!

Why didn't I put any eggplants in there D:?

Hello all! February 2010’s theme is Vocaloid, so I’ve started things off with a less popular character, Gakupo Kamui, the dancing eggplant Samurai. No really. I’m serious.

The Vocaloid wiki says:
Kamui Gakupo has a samurai aesthetic—the Vocaloid is clad in a Jinbaori, a kind of kimono which was used as a battle surcoat, with parts of Japanese armor, and carries a katana which was named “Music katana, Miburi”(楽刀・美振,Gakutou Miburi). The patterns on its blade make sounds as a musical instrument when it is swung down. [6] His fanmade character item is an eggplant.

The hardest part of drawing Gakupo here was probably the outfit. It’s pretty dang confusing with its many layers and buttons. I tried out my new eye style again, and I think it looks good with this piece. Though my brother, on the other hand, thought it looked weird. How unfortunate. I decided the hair looked better flat, and not shaded, in case you’re wondering why it’s like that.

Tell me what you think ;D. I might make some wallpaper with it later.

Ready?! | Regulus (+ BULZEEB) Fanart

Regulus/BULZEEB

Hardly fanart, when I've contorted the character this much.

Hi! I just got back from the allergy doctor, where I was painfully syringed on both arms and told to wait for twenty minutes! Hoorah!

So my brother and I have been playing Bomberman 64: The Second Attack — rather, he is playing while I, as Pommy, am running around jumping off cliffs and tripping over enemies — and it is bushels of co-op fun! A sequel to the amazing Bomberman 64, this puzzle-riddled action-adventure game involves the arduous quest of seeking the seven elemental stones in order to stop the space pirate Rukifellth (<- terrible name), who is being possessed by the god of evil, Stertoth (<- terrible name) in order to escape the black hole he and Pommy were sucked into. Oh dear. For a better description, go here.
