The Shut-in Princess (storybook)Firstly, I want to share an interview I did with MzzAzn ! Thanks it's a big honour, though the answers are a bit old (I don't actually remember doing this HAHAH...haha..ha........................) MzzAzn will be doing more interviews with lovely DA artists so stay tuned!
Also, i've uploaded this illustration assignment I did on my tumblr a while ago already, but I thought it would be nice to have it here!;
Yes the girl is kimchi (everyone else in my class did generic things orz) As for the mark i got; high distinctions! heehee

I will be sending them in batches (around 45 to 50 at a time). I'll keep this page updated as to which orders I have sent and not so, etc.
My trips to the post office for those batches respectively will be on the 11th, 14th, 17th and 20th. It's safer to not post all at once and this will give me enough time to rest in between since I'll have to pack everything / fill in forms :3c
As soon as I pack your order for the batch, I'll contact you checking your address again! I will be keeping hold of your copy no matter what until I get your OK to post it. It's better to be safe than sorry and it has been a period of time
The average it takes to arrive from around the world is a week or two! Though this may take longer or shorter, post has a mind of it's own \o/ I really hope you do enjoy the book!
I'm happy if you are interested i

SHO-YOU: The Art of Magical ArtistsSho-You will be an e-artbook released in DECEMBER 2012 featuring stunning artwork from the best manga and anime artists within the online community. The e-artbook is completely free for anyone to read and will feature artist depictions of themselves as magical girls, in a whimsical adaptation of the discovery of their creative souls, to raise awareness for a non-profit charity called Artists for Charity. AFC supports and teaches artisan skills to orphans suffering with HIV in Ethiopia. In the same way that the children save themselves with art, the e-artbook will demonstrate how art gives an artist's creative soul the power to touch and give joy to others.SHO-YOU: The Art of Magical Artists3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Art Chat Interviews: UniqueLegend and CashileArt Chat is a series of double interviews that feature two artists alongside one another. The interviews, although separate, are meant to reflect artists that have similar styles-- but different techniques and processes on deviantART. The interviews are meant to be read separately but at the same time, it's hoped that you'll be able to take double the advice out of this! These artists may be well known or hidden gems-- whatever the case, I'm hoping that these interviews will be both interesting and inspiring!Art Chat Interviews: UniqueLegend and Cashile3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

So first off: How long have you been drawing?
I've been drawing for as long as I can remember - years before I even started school. My parents told me that I used to grab permanent markers as a toddler and I kept drawing all over the walls with them which did not make them happy! I haven't stopped since.

So to avoid confusing everyone, the artist alley is in the main exhibit hall on the 2nd floor. The hall is for dealers near the entrance, and artist tables are in the back half of the hall. Here's a map http://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/main-web-w/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Exhibit-Full-letter.pdf but the map doesn't show each artist tables. If you walk down aisle 6, I should be on the first row of the artist alley tables.

Ok so I wanted to come up with something fun & interesting sooooooo I decided the theme will be fairy tales/children's stories! I want you to draw any one (or more) of my three characters using that theme For instance you could draw Aika as little red riding hood and have Umi dressed as the big bad wolf (haha I'll need to draw that at some point XD). I'm not gonna be really strict with the theme I want to see how you interpret it in your own special way.

What's with 'Studying from Life'!?This is the revisiting of a news article I wrote a few years back.What's with 'Studying from Life'!?5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Allow me to begin this article by mentioning that this was written with aspiring professionals in mind. For those of you who wish to pursue art as a hobby with no intention to make it a career choice, I have no doubts in your abilities as an artist, but art for you is a pleasure seeking thing. I would never wish to turn it into something even remotely reminiscent of 'stressful work'--as a hobby should never come to that. So for you hobbyists, feel free to take this article in, but by no means feel obliged to apply the information if you do not find enjoyment in doing so.
As for you aspiring pros, this is an inevitable and unavoidable step you must take in pursuit of your career. This is your job--and if you don't like it, you're probably pursuing the wrong career!
But I digress.
I, like many of you--strive to be a professional in the field of art. In particular, I am an illustrator. I've been fortunate enough to
