2011 january paris

I found this photo of Paris I took back in January, from the art center Georges Pompidou (once you get on the elevator, there is such a view of Paris...)
I like the colors, too bad that my camera isn't good enough to catch it well ; it looks like a ghost city here oh sob

mmm news now !
I got 100% of my files back WHEWWW. NO WAITING UNTIL DECEMBER.
I now have two external harddisks (which were inside of my old computer before) so uhuh it's all good.

But I won't have arts up for a little while since I am caught with deadlines for portfolios and exams/finals so brb !!!

Maybe I'll drop a stress-relief doodle from time to time... :9

Wish me good luck !!! MUST WORK MY BEST > 0 <)999!!!!!!

edit: I feel bad not posting any drawing here, so here have a quick doodle fanart I did for nozmo

A character from her comic Todd Allison & the Petunia Violet, that you MUST read if you haven't already !! She posted today a new revamped version of chapter one on MangaMagazine.net, let's salute her debut !

Bad news :

▸ My computer died on me a few days ago, for good. After a greenscreen then infinite blackscreen. Files will be back (I hope) in December...
I lost almost all my school work for my upcoming portfolio.

▸ Photoshop lags a lot on my laptop, and the colors aren't fixed. So... cg-ing became difficult. I have to download all the fonts, brushes and patterns again

▸ I can't letter with photoshop... when I write one sentence on a text layer, as soon as I push "enter" it edits the layer and that's it. I can only make one sentence per layer. wow.
Do you guys have the solution for this ?

▸ I have been working on my website before home computer died, but now I don't have any picture to put in the gallery. (≖益≖)

▸ Been in a HUGE ARTBLOCK where I can't be satisfied of anything. I can't draw a face.

▸ This morning my iPod had two seizures, equivalent to a home computer bluescreen can I throw my dead computer off the window Shizuo-style and stamp on my ipod Izaya-style ( 휴益휴)sobbb

/end of whining

Good news :

▸ Discovered a very good mangaka, Ogawa Yayoi - with her really awesome josei "Kimi wa Pet". It changed me from shoujos, and I look up to her now.
Also read "On the other side of the mirror" by Jo Chen (another josei) ; it's really good and the oneshot at the end of the second volume is very inspiring. ♥

▸ Received rem's package and the basara fanbook I ordered so long ago <3 I really felt touched by rem's package for my birthday (not now, but on the 25th) iyaaa //// I will post pictures of the gifts I've got after my birthday passes ! Lot of awesomeness in one entry (//∇//)

▸ Rushed over two days Vodkapotato's birthday (on the 13th) gift until 3am BUT I GOT IN TIMEEEEE yays!



Her character Leigh, from two years ago. Good times...

For this picture, I used watercolors, inks, white ink, golden watercolours, arches paper, and some special paper (for the "Happy birthday Anita" band :9)


Look. The golden watercolour shines

More pictures under the cut !! I tried to upload a .gif of the process, but imageshack froze it to the first step ~__~; so it will be on a slideshow instead !

Huff huff
last update of the day. (oh god that will never happen again. No more multiple entries a day no moreskfjhs)

Another stress-relief sketch I did out of... frustration...(≖‿≖)

I decided to pick it up and color it because I have been lately in a after-deadline-artblock ; so many ideas, but yet I feel like I can't pull anything out on paper... ): sighh. SO FRUSTRATING

Actually I submit multple entries a day because of my dumb categories sigh.
Sorry for the inconvenience T^T


My OC Crowe, drawn on another bad day... before the deadline >8'U. He was inspired by the awesomestest hangbird (who draws manly men and their sexy noses nghgh)
I was trying out more functionalities of SAI, when suddenly (after having experienced a bunch of bluescreens and stuff all the day) there has been a general black out in my house.

(휴 益 휴)

well now I've gained the habit to Ctrl+S my work every five seconds...
so much that now when I draw on paper, I sometimes Ctrl+S orz /facepalm

okkk as the picture was actually pretty trippy I enjoyed making nonsense with it.

Under the cut because I'm sure it will be ruining your eyes
(warning : flipping le flip and reflip le out)

Title is my accurate face whenever I notice how I don't update my blog enough.

Time to post picturesss ! >8U below are a bunch of stress-relief drawings doodles I did in my super stressful portfolio rushing crunch time.

I drew random chara designs of megane boys in a different situation (which sometimes don't make much sense). And always megane, even if for the second picture we can't see clearly well haha.


2011, March 20th
#001- Conductor's baton, Scarlet kiss


2011, March 22nd
#002- Le funambule, the aerialist ; le funambuliste

They have a short story behind them (actually the story is written while I'm drawing that single picture), I might make later, very short oneshots (around 5p) for everyone of them. Huhu !

I wish I had more megane boys pictures, so I could complete the entry.... I will just end up updating multiple entries today. sob



Comic Live in Paris - report (photospam !)

Hey guys !
Lately (especially the month of March itself), everything has been soooo crazy and busy that I didn't really have the time to update properly this blog. I need to make proper drawings to show you now ! ;D

I had a crunch time to make two portfolios and send them to two different schools.
Today I received the answer for one of them : my application can't be received, because I don't meet their criteria. But it's alright, I knew from the start that I had little chances for that one, so no big disappointment ! Let's cross fingers for the other one...

Well anyways, here have some photos of my loot I got during the first convention "Comic
Live in Paris" (a very very small version of Comicket in Japan, imported to Paris - the first convention dedicated only to circles) ; I don't have actual photos of the con, because they were all so blurry and ugly, sorry ;__;

If you'd like to see some pictures taken by a friend at the con, you can do it here. (blog and report is in French though. Courtesy of Plumy.)
She had a stand there, and say that it was a very satisfying con.

Myself, I'd say that for a first try, it was good, even if it was really small... I hope that in the future, it will become bigger ! ;) We in France don't have as many circles as in Japan, but I hope that later more people will join.

I could meet friends I occasionally meet such as Goku, Marta, Saspiee, ... (+ a bunch of other friends !) so it was indeed really fun.

Now, photos-photos time !!!!!~~ As usual, click to enlarge.


1- Got Sakizou's "Romantic Jewels" artbook, which is full of fancy fantastically fabulous gentlemen, wearing jewels and laces. As usual, her designs and use of watercolours/inks are mind-blowing.

2- "The Maries - La vie d'une Mary" - a really fancy book made by my friends nita, sano, melow. I'd highly recommend it.
Eventhough they did all the books the night just before, every single book is unique and the cover is different. The inside of the book contains a compilation (it's even more than that actually) of victorian/fancy ladies (the maries) and their illustration... and when I say that every book is unique, it really is personal : there is a little blank frame on the cover where either nita/melow or sano write your initial. SEE MINE IS "RRRRR" SO AWESOME. And I got it packed in a white paper with a yellow ribbon ! sob so mary /end of happy advertising/

no no seriously if you can order it online, do it >8U (you can visit http://the-maries.blogspot.com and ask them... or me and I'll ask them for you. 8) )

3- The Maries - set of postcards... I couldn't resist, just look at that Darcy ndhhkfjh /nosebleeds


Close-up on the book, and two keychains I bought on the stand next to theirs. There was one orange macaroon and a swiss roll with a kiwi on it.. ;__; (I COULDN'T RESIST TO THE KIWI ksfhjs SOB)


"R" for Reikan uohoho >B)


Two adorable handmade bird brooches made by sano. There were many other models, but I couldn't resist those ones at all.. (and anyways they got sold immediately ! sobsob.)


Inside the book because it is really pretty inside >8U


1- a transparent print of a papercut art (made by the circle Tsubameyado). It was just so awesome that I had to buy it nghhkfjg. On the stand, they exposed original pieces... and every illustration/fanart was in fact, black paper cut. Would you believe it ?!!

2- a print of Goku's character, Jidai - love the lively colours !

3- Sano's new sketchbook, called Ceylan. I wonder what will come next, after Earl Grey and now Ceylan ? ^3^

4- a small illust book made by a collective. Like a collection of illustrations ;) nghdkjfhg I couldn't resist the shotas in there... They were too cute... ^q ^ (yes it's Ciel on the cover - illust by Dite)

5- ancou's original doujin Trickstar, vol.8 - even though it's in Japanese, and I can't understand it yet, I had to buy it because it's too pretty aahkjdfhg ;_;

Close-ups :


Illustration made by こよ



1- Goku's new sketchbook - ... Ican I only say that it's really awesome and that kjdfhgdfg. okay

2- A bunch of cute postcards made by Tomeko - packed in a envelope with a heart hole in it, so cute ;3;


1- Didn't get that one at the con, but it's Uwe Heidschoetter's "Autumn in Berlin" sketchbook. She sold it as a relief action for Japan... take the time to visit her blog, she's an amazing artist and animator.

2- Jun's "Dear my Deer" comic, it's really cute ;3; I hope to see more comics from you in the future !!! >B)

3- (welp took another photo with ancou's book because... its color matched well the other books /LAME)

Oh, last photo of that spam dump !


The three latest mangas I've bought. Seven Days by Takarai Rihito (one of my favourite mangakas/artists, and I've got many of them but woah her works *Q*), DOGS vol.5 by Miwa Shirow, Otomen vol.11 by Aya Kanno.

I'm looking for new series to read, do you have any you'd recommend me ?

Okay, thank you for reading !! ♥
Expect more pictures soon.
