ASIA's Fanart Update

Practicing with Touken Ranbu characters...Collapse )

Summer camp time! This year I have decided to pack simple sandwiches (with home-baked bread) and fruits, and I have been drawing characters on her brown bag. I have to save my energy for Saturday Japanese School bento (more details later). Most of the time I just pick character myself such as Snoopy, Hello Kitty, etc. The other day I asked my kiddo's request, and she asked for "Captain Jack Sparrow!" I have totally forgotten that recently my hubby took the kiddo to go see the newest Pirates of the Caribbean movie...  The kiddo was like "Can you put the skull logo on the back?" "Can you color it?" Do you know just how flimsy the brown paperbag is? (>_>)  The most ridiculous looking sandwich bag ever...

This one took forever to finish...sheesh.

Done with usual watercolor pencils and little bit of pastels.  I like coloring with nature theme. I usually don't plan very well when I start drawing so this time I kept changing my mind every which way.  And in the end I really ran out of the space on the paper, but you know, it's an analog art so you can't really expand the paper (^.^;) I wish I could strech the paper juuuuust a littel wider, but oh well this is that.

One of the reason this art took forever...can you believe it, we adopted yet another cat!! (@_@) Furthermore, this cat has something I have never heard of from cats...Flea Allergy!!  How can an animal survive with such things??  Needless to say, when I saw her at shelter she was in horrible horrible shape. She was supposedly 3 years old but she was so skinny and tiny she didn't look any more than 6mo old.  The black one is only 10mo old, and you would almost believe that the black one is the baby tortie's mother! She must've been malnutritioned for a long time. And oh my she had scabs everywhere!!! She was "owner surrender" but I doubt she was very well taken care of, by the shape she was in.  On top of it she has the usual shelter cold so she was sneezing coughing snotting everywhere, it was the most pathetic creature I have ever seen in there.  So naturally I picked her up to make her MINE (^3^) She kept laying down unmoving for almost a week, and I had to force her mouth open to push in wetfood and squirted some water with syringe.  We were worried she may not make it (@_@;;)

But she has recovered and now is our cat.
So the big black cat is my kiddo's per se, and this tortie is somewhat mine. Unlike the black one this tortie is not a kid lover, so when my kiddo's home she totally hides away and only comes out when she is not home (^_^;)  My dog is still around...she is 11 years old now, getting up there for sure. Again she is on the bottom of the tortem pole. But as long as mommy's there, my dog can handle all the hardships...

The funny thing about this cat...she LOVEs her belly rubbed, just like dogs! But she doesn't like being petted in the usual places, head, back, etc. My theory is that she always had skin issue from the fleas where she couldn't reach,  and the belly was the only part that she didn't have any scrapes and scabs. The black one doesnt' get mad with the belly rub either, but not as much as how tortie enjoys it (^_^) She definitely has trust issue but she is slowly opening up, specially to me (*^_^*)  I eat lots of fish so naturally my animals are all fish lovers (on top of "balanced" cat food).  They are very lucky to get what they get to eat I tell ya! (^_^)

Kiddo now wants the bento for regular school...Collapse )

Now school is out...winter break...I hate to have the kiddo home...no chance of drawing and I can't focus on anything I do...but at least I don't have to make any bento, so it's a mixed feeling *LOL*

Oh and now we have a brand new cat!

Our last cat died this spring (18yrs old) and it was really devastating for my kiddo. We weren't actively looking but we encountered this at the shelter (of course we were just LOOKING mind you...), super friendly, even lets you rub on her belly, follows you everywhere like a dog in cat skin.  She is a big hit!  She slept on the kiddo's bed all night long in the first day she came, and she is just constantly rubbing up against you purring...we haven't even heard the single meowing from her yet because all we get to hear is her purr (@O@)  She is only 9 months old so she will be a good companion for the kiddo for many years to come (^_^)

We do have the original kid book version, but recently I have purchased this one for myself (^_^) But either way, the term "caterpillar" (Aomushi) inspired me with this weird AU ficlet between caterpillar Jomy x butterfly-reincarnated spider Blue.  And I also came up with the image of the art to go with (^_^)

I keep trying at Pastels but they are really tricky to deal with, and I always end up escaping to my good old faithful watercolor pencils.  Hopefully more practice helps.

My mother stayed here for few weeks and with my kiddo's fall break, Election Day, Veteran's Day, and Thanksgiving week was all off for school...my motivation/energy for drawing drained down to zero. So I did this get compliments from local natives :-D to get my mojo up again.  It worked...my hubby who is a self-proclaimed C3PO hater, kept giving me the wierd sidelook on this pic LOL

And my kiddo wanted to copy me.  Not bad! I don't think I had any ability to pay this much attention to the details on this age. Maybe she grows up to be the great fanartist one day :-D

This is based on one of the fanfic I wrote, sort of double-parody of Terra and one of the Japanese classic historical stories "Ushiwakamaru". I didn't wayt to try this since I felt that having a blond guy wearing Kimono is a bit too weird, but hey if Keanu Reeves and Tom Cruise can pull it off, why not Jomy? ...And it still turned out weird (-.-;) Oh well it was a fun challenge!

Last couple arts were in dry atmosphere, so I wanted something more moist, per se (^O^)  I also wanted to try using pastels again, but I ended up using my good old watercolor pencils a lot anyways. Pastels didn't work out to color little details and I didn't have enough skills.  I will try it again some other time...

Last time the background looked too rocky so this time I decided to pull out the pastels, which I haven't touched for...9 years?  It took me a while to figure out how to use it again.  But I didn't really pay attention in landscaping, so it looks like sandy-color-waves instead of dunes.  I may try the same theme sometime..but I will give it a break before I come back to it again (^.^;)  I want Blue to be in the picture too!

Due to the "R2D2 Effect" (^3^) my hubby has been volunteereing to take our kiddo out a lot during weekends.  Though our subdivision pool just closed for the year so I have no idea if it continues...  But anyway he really wanted Han Solo out of me, so I reluctantly agreed to do it.  He even had very specific pose out of internet image, out of the actual movie.  I didn't understand...if he already has the photo image he wants, why not just print it out?! (-_-;;) It's techinically just photo-copying by hand.  But oh well it was the request. I have never done fanart of the real person so I didn't think I could do it, but apparently it didn't turn out too bad.  I really regretted doing Millenium Falcon though (~_~;)  I wanted it to be very classic looking background, matching hubby's old taste (^o^)

My friends totally went nuts on this one! (^o^)  My love is still with my Japanese style art & manga, but these American fanarts is a good practice to do every once in a while, and I also get to gain new respect from my American friends, which helps my selfish ego.... (^3^)
