Interlude 5

Ugh.. I've really been meaning to update earlier than this, but I've been dreading writing up that christmas report I promised. Hell, even my birthday was a couple of days ago now, and I would have had to add that on, too. I'm not sure I even want to attempt it anymore. It really puts me off from opening up blogspot =A=;

Oh! However, on my birthday, mom took me out and we bought a printer/scanner! It's pretty neat, and actually prints way better than I thought it might. I originally just wanted a separate scanner, because I've always disliked those two-in-one printer-scanners (so bulky), and I was planning to buy a printer on a different occasion. I'm glad mom talked me into buying it.

Anyway, enough of that. Have some hot man I drew just now:

Merry Christmas~! ♥

Quick update before I get ready to go to my grandmother's for lunch. I've been meaning to update for a few days now, but I never really found the time. And since it was near christmas, my brother has been using his laptop for his own things, I guess..

Anyway, Merry Christmas, everyone~! ♥ And Merry Christmas to those in a different timezone to myself. I hope you all have a good one, and stay safe! ♥

I'll try and update again when I go back home tomorrow (yay!). I've had a busy few days, so I want to type it down and at least have my memories written somewhere, y'know? See you all then!

Dec 21, 2010


Suddenly had the urge to update. It's almost 5AM and I've admittedly been awake all night, though I had a nap just after dinner. My mother just told me over MSN (she is SO hip!) that if it's sunny today, we'll go christmas shopping this afternoon instead of tomorrow. I don't know what to think about that. I'm not disappointed in the change of plans, but I'm not enthusastic either. I don't even have anything to buy in mind.

I'm currently doing what I usually do when I'm up late (excluding drawing since I'm using my brother's laptop) and reading fanfics and spouting nonsense on twitter when I see fit. I'm surprised I've been getting so into Harry Potter fanfiction lately, even those that aren't of the pairing variety. I recently found one author who writes lengthy Snarry fics that range from 30 to 40 chapters long. At least it's something to amuse me, I guess. No new anime to watch until later this week.

On another note, I've been sporting the idea of simply handing the kittens over to a shelter/adoption center. I know my brother and I decided we wanted to give the kittens to people we know and trust, but even if they were given to people we know, it's not like we can keep watch on them all the time anyway. It would be so much easier if we gave them away, to someone who would actually pay money for a pet (because who would pay for a pet, only to not look after it?). Though I will miss Tubby, Roman, and Snake Eyes terribly.

I've asked mom to bring my camera and charger over, so I can get as many pictures as I can before we give them away. If D doesn't find anyone before the end of this week, I'll be taking them to the adoption center by next Wednesday. While we're on the subject of next week, I'll have you guys know that my birthday will be on the Tuesday of that week (hence giving them away the day after my birthday, so that I can at least celebrate with them). I don't really celebrate it anymore, but I wouldn't mind some birthday wishes on the day ♥

@Crumitieblvd: Thank you very much! Those are my more wacky-looking chibis xD;

4 More Days Until Christmas

Or at least here in my timezone it will be. I wanted to update before then. Though I don't really have any art to share. I've gotten the chance to draw with my own computer, but it just doesn't feel the same over here at dad's. Plus, the kittens just keep getting in the way and I've had to build a sort of fortress around my computer and its cords. I also don't have a means of transfering files (I keep forgetting to ask D for his USB).

So, what to talk about.. Arrived here on Saturday and had to settle in. I had a lot of stuff to bring in as well as my cat's/kittens' necessities. I was in such a pissed mood once I was finished. Levi's (family friend) nephew and niece stayed the night. It bothered me a lot when my father decided to allow them into my room to see the kittens. I was even watching Arakawa Under the Bridge x2 at the time, so I had to pause it to keep an eye on them. No one bothers my Arakawa time (even if I do re-watch them in a playlist all the time).

I didn't eat dinner last night!

More like, I forgot to have dinner! Mother didn't cook anything, so it was a 'free for all' night. I guess it sort of slipped my mind, trying to finish off some projects, and stressing over going to dad's. We didn't end up going yesterday because of the heavy rain (which admittedly ended before the time we would've gone there), so we're going later today instead. I'm still worried about the kittens, and the horde of stuff I'll be packing to last me the week. -I'm just simply not prepared mentally for this! *sigh*

Well, whatever. I haven't seen dad in a while, so it'll be good to see him again. (I say this every time, don't I?) I just know something horrible will happen, though..

Obligatory image:

[Nameless uncle of Daisuke and Suzu. He becomes the chef for the Aoki (Naoto) household. He's a bit of an airhead though, and gets into many dangerous situations because of his carelessness xD

I don't draw this guy often (though he did appear in that 'Christmas Apron' 4koma sketch I posted a few entries back). I think this is my first time deciding on an actual face for him.

Now I need a name LOL.]

Anyway, I better get some shut eye, or dad will criticize me when I arrive there. I'll update again when I'm settled in (I'm taking my computer over, so I'd have to set it back up). 'Night! ♥

Interlude 4

Long time no update! =3=)/ I've been a little busy the past couple of days with some stuff, so I haven't really been drawing anything else. I have taken the chance to update my MangaBullet account, though. It's nice to be at least a little active at the community I love ♥

It's Friday today, and I'm not sure what we have planned, but it's the official Summer holidays here, so we'll be switching our every-second-weekend at dad's schedule to every-second-week. I honestly won't mind staying there weekly, because I can at least bring my computer over there without feeling foolish (my younger brother insists on bringing his computer there each weekend, which is stupid since it's only really a two night stay). It'll be annoying lugging my stuff around, though! xD

I'm mostly worried about what we're doing with Charity and the kittens. They're 6 and a half weeks old now, so by next week we'll be looking for possible owners (we had a few people in mind at the beginning, but we've found the kittens too precious to give them to such people) for them. However, I can't leave them at home alone with my mom, so we might have to take them to dad's, where there's already four other cats. I'd have to keep the kittens in my own room, where my computer will most likely be, so I'm dreading the idea of them playing with my computer cords! ;~;

Speaking of the kittens. I know it was already decided before we even got to know them that we'd be keeping Big Green, and Big Green alone. But when I look at all of those kittens sleeping together.. I think this is the first time I've felt hurt, personally, about giving them away. Before, when giving kittens away, I'd be more neutral about it because of how little we're at dad's. But these are the kittens I've had living in my bedroom with me since before they could even open their eyes.

I don't know. I know I don't want to keep them all, I have enough troubles with Charity alone. But I want the kittens to be safe, and loved, and I don't like the thought of their pitiful meows when they realize they're not with the others anymore. I told myself I wouldn't get attached, but I think I will really cry when we finally get around to giving one of them away. -We'll see what happens..

Anyway, I just wanted to update for the sake of updating. If we're going to dad's later today, I'll try and update when I can (I won't have internet access). Good night! ♥

Midnight Woes

So I woke up yesterday morning to feed my cat, and when I came back to bed I found out a kitten pissed on it. I had to clean all my sheets. They didn't know any better, though. So I wasn't too grumpy about it (even though I was worried that it might rain and that my blankets wouldn't dry fast enough).

I spent most of yesterday reading Harry Potter fanfics.. Sadly, I've been doing this the past couple of days. I honestly can't help myself when I find a good story. I especially love those time travel fics like I would with Naruto. There's just something about the main tragic hero (Naruto, Harry, etc) being able to go back and changing things that's highly appealing to me. I also love reading torture/angst fics xD

I've also been entertaining the idea of buying the Harry Potter novels and giving them a read just so I understand things fully. I've only ever watched the films, so it gets a bit annoying after seeing characters' names I don't know. Though I think I've learnt of a few characters by just reading them be introduced into the fanfics. I didn't even know Hogwarts had a librarian. Was she even in the films?

Kick in!

Damn you, coffee! Why won't you kick in?! I made you extra strong, too! (I should stop saying things that make me think up new innuendos.)

Lately I've been feeling tired earlier than usual. Granted it's actually 1AM right now, but I love staying up later than this. I get most of my inspiration/motivation late at night, so it's frustrating when I turn in for the night because I can't hold myself up anymore.

I'll see if I can stay up a little while longer, and if I can concentrate enough to actually draw something. Have something I drew earlier:

[EDIT]: I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I've added a 'My Links' section on the side bar (a little near the bottom). So yeah. Feel free to stalk me at those places LOL.

@nie: I have? I didn't really notice. I know I've been using more browns and grays. Pinks have always been a part of my palette, though.

Bananananana~! ♥

 Most epic drink of all time! ♥

I didn't really want to update my blog today because I hardly have anything interesting to post. But I haven't done much of anything since I got home from grocery shopping this afternoon.. Not that typing up an entry makes up for inactivity, aha~ OTL;;

Um. So today I was forced to wake up by Charity's meows again, like she's been doing everyday for the past couple of weeks when she's hungry or wants to go outside. Not long after I got up, it was decided that I'd be going shopping with my mother, which pissed me off, like every other time it's "decided". It's like I have no choice in the matter (even though I do, but the way everyone says it makes it sound like I have to go!).

I was going to have a shower right away, but I started feeding the kittens some kitten food again (I want to help wean them to kitten food, since Chari is getting more edgy towards them lately). BG ate again, and this time Tubby joined him. Roman is still biting the plate, and Snake Eyes doesn't even try. Hopefully by tomorrow or the next day all the kittens will be eating it. -Note to self: Only feed them when Charity is out of the house. She is so annoying when she tries to eat their food after I JUST fed her.

After feeding them, I was going to head for the shower, but mom had gone before me. I decided to put more concentration into feeding the kittens, so I didn't notice when mom had finished or when D went in. But when I finally had the chance to use the bathroom, the water actually went COLD on me! That's never happened to me before! I was.. so pissed off. I was in the middle of washing my hair, too, so all the cold water was going along my back. I'm going to just ignore everyone tomorrow if I wake up with an ache.

I wish I knew how to vent my anger better IRL instead of typing out a rant on my blog *sigh* One day..

4koma, anyone?

Quick update before I go to bed (I only ever seem to update before going to sleep, wtf?). I had a nap earlier, but I guess it wasn't enough. I am so tired.

Anyway, a couple of years back I decided on creating a story about my OCs Naoto, Daisuke, and Suzu (can find them here, or scattered about here). At first I thought of maybe creating a manga/comic for them. But at the time I didn't want to think of anything with too much plot/depth, so I decided to make it a 4koma titled '1+2='.

As you can imagine, I never actually did anything with that idea. The other night I randomly decided to give it a shot:

I am so HIP

Update before I go to bed. I was up all night yesterday and I only managed to have a 6-7 hour nap in the early evening OTL; -But hey, at least my room's clean now!

Quick sketch:

@kupocchi: Haha, I know right! The first movie is always my favorite. All of the cast were so young and cute back then. Especially Harry ♥

@Crumitieblvd: Oh, thank you! ;u; I think she's a bit plain. But she's my first OC I drew with a tablet, so I can't help but love her xD

100 Questions for an Artist

01. What is your pen name?

02. What made you choose this name?
I made bone-kun as a joint alias with a friend of mine over at deviantART who also made the user 'skull-chan'. It was cute at the time because he was 'chan' while I was 'kun'. 

03. Do you use PC or Mac?

04. What programs do you use most often?
Windows Live Messenger, Windows Media Player, Mozilla Firefox, Paint Tool SAI, Paint Shop Pro 7. Generally. I also use Open Canvas 1.1, and Adobe Photoshop CS3. 

05. Do you use mouse, or tablet?
Tablet. Graphire4 Wacom I got for a late Christmas/Birthday gift 20/01/07. Yes. I even have the date saved. 

06. What color or color combinations do you find yourself using most often?
If I’m just looking to sketch or draw lineart, I’ll just use black. If I want the image to look softer, I go with light browns. As for overall color, I find I use green and pink quite often. 

07. What part of a picture do you put most effort into?
The whole damn thing, of course. But if I had to choose, I suppose it would be the face. Especially the eyes and hair. 

08. How long does it take you do draw a picture?
Depends what mood I’m in, what I’m drawing, and what style it’s in. A sketch can range from 5min to 1hour+, but with coloring it might take longer.

Damnit. I've stayed up again! I even had a sort-of schedule planned for today. Hopefully I'll still be able to fulfill it and I won't tire easily ;~;

Anyways, late update. AGAIN. And it's a shame, too, because I wanted to make one of those "beginning of the month" sort of entries.. Ahh well. Next time? xD

I have a hat!

I've been neglecting to update my blog on the days that I'd plan to, well, update. Which is a little unsettling because I don't feel as motivated to draw if my blog isn't updated. So then I end up not doing anything useful with all my free time in day.

Yesterday (I say yesterday, because it's almost 5AM) mother and I went to fourways to hand in some forms. After that I went to Nerd Central, our local comic book store, for the second time ever. It's.. so weird. The first time I went I felt too awkward and left after like 10-20 seconds. This time I actually had a browse around, and I found I quite liked the atmosphere regardless of the clerk at the front keeping a close eye on things, the other random shoppers, and the small one-room store we were all crammed into along with rows of comic books. I even ended up browsing for a full 10+ minutes or so.

I honestly don't know why I went in there. I wasn't really expecting to buy anything. But I did end up finding a Justice League (Cartoon Network series) comic book, which was quite thick, and pretty cheap. I ended up buying it, only because it would be rude of me to browse for so long and NOT buy anything;; -I was quite surprised to find a manga shelf there too, and I plan to go back again to purchase some.

That's basically the only "active" thing I did all day. We did go grocery shopping after. And then when we got back home my bro and I played with the kittens for a while.. I seriously need a life xD;;
