China trip post (photo heavy)Mm I don't know how to go about this in an organized manner, so this will just be a stream of photos with my intermittent narration.China trip post (photo heavy)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Our trip was Shanghai > Hangzhou > Nanjing > Suzhou > Wuxi > back to Shanghai. Then we went to Hong Kong on our own.
Oh yeah, first, since I have no photos of these (for good reason): THE SQUAT TOILETS. They suck. They stink. You can always tell if there's a bathroom nearby by the smell in the air! Half the time the flush doesn't even work. All the used toilet paper is tossed in a bin, so the smell just lingers and lingers. For some reason, sometimes they sell food right outside the bathrooms. LIKE WHY?! I don't know how anybody can think about eating with that smell there.
I drank as little as possible. Between my sis and I, we also brought 5-6 rolls of toilet paper, so it was more than enough. (We left the extra rolls at Grandma's in HK afterwards haha.)
Anyhoo, onto pictures...
From our place to China was a 12 hour flight, 4 hour break at airport, then
Secret Santa EventBeen talking to a few people and was thinking of holding a Secret Santa Event. If you are interested in participating please post a comment on this journal entry. You will have two weeks to sign up, and the rest of time from 11-23-12 to 12-24-12 to submit your secret Santa submission. This will be worth some Yuan and hopefully kick start some more art submissions. The idea of the secret Santa is to draw the other person's character in a winter theme picture. Some people might be really busy with school work like finals and projects, and also holidays with family and friends. The submission could be a sketch or a doodle, anything really. It doesn't need to be the next Mona Lisa or anything. Please do not sign up if you feel that you will not even have the time to draw a sketch for the person. People will be paired up at random. Please be respectful and remember to keep this a secret. Do no tell anyone. If you have an idea for your character that you would like to see you can post it asSecret Santa Event1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hellooo!As you may have noticed, I've been trying to regularly update my gallery since returning from hiatus. I was away from dA for almost two years, and during that time I created a lot of artwork. So, I'm posting all the work I created between 2010-2012, in (mostly) chronological order. Those of you who've been following my blog may have already seen all of this, though.Hellooo!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Once I get through my backlog of work, I'll start posting brand new stuff. However, if you're interested in seeing my most recent work, check out my blog.
I hope you're all well fed and feeling festive.

I smash glass doors with my nose.Yeah... what the title says.I smash glass doors with my nose.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday evening, I was walking to the balcony, thinking that the glass door was open, but it was closed. I wasn't even running and I smashed it with my... nose? o.o How did this even happen? I have super powers, I guess... :iconringolaplz:
Then my nose was bleeding way too much and I realised that the skin was ripped off and the floor was filled with blood! I was so scared and it made me start laughing hysterically, while my parents had both gone crazy and were screaming. The whole neighbourhood had heard the glass breaking and the police came because they thought there was a robbery! XD I finally went to the hospital and had ( i think 10) stitches and it was creepy and it hurt so much!
Today, I had to go to school with an awful plaster on my nose and everybody was asking me what happened and it was kind of annoying (even more annoying than the fact that everybody was looking at me).
I'm so thankful that I'm alright now, I could have been more serious
Update: Meme Template and New Meme FoldersJiru here,Update: Meme Template and New Meme Folders1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Today I put up a new meme template for you to use to make memes for this group.
I had fun putting this together and I hope you'll all be able to use it.
When you download the file you will get a .rar that contains:
-The complete blank template
and a folder containing:
in transparent PNG form for making custom sized memes.
The complete template is ready for you to turn into whatever meme you want. But if you need a different size or want to make a meme with more than one panel you can use the parts to build a custom meme. That way your custom will match the rest of the groups' memes.
As for the new folders, they're in the Meme section. One says Blank Memes, this is for any memes you make for others to fill out. The other says Non-Event Memes, this is where you will submit any memes you fill out for your character. That way if there is an event only meme in the future we can keep them separate from the everyday fun ones.

Sorry for that...
I will upload something tonight.
The fanzine project proceeds with unsteady rythms because I have huge artist blocks very often. I quit the play project and started writing a stage adaptation of two main plotlines from 'Cloud Atlas' which I hope to be able to start working on with a team (I have designed it for a 5 person cast) on September/October.
I am not sleeping brilliantly at the moment. Infact I barely sleep at night and I try to catch up on it from after 7 in the morning.
My psychologist is stalking my tumblr and I generally feel and look like a trainwreck. (someone in the library asked me if I needed a doctor.)
Also,I have developed a very unhealthy admiration for a person who probably thinks I am but a burden to society. Anyway,I shall admire him from afar until he realizes and things get awkward.
Event: First MeetingWell folks, it’s that time again—time for another event! This event, (if you couldn't already tell from the title of this journal) is called ‘First Meeting,’ and focuses on—yes, you probably guessed it; meeting another character for the first time.Event: First Meeting9 months ago in Personal More Like This
New members, in order to receive yuan for this event you must:
1.) RP a scene with one other person (if you haven’t already) and then,
2.) illustrate that meeting on the official meme template we've uploaded to the resources folder.
Simple, no? You’re free to RP any kind of situation, be it a casual run-in at the market or something more exciting like teaming up to fight a group of pissed off Triple Triads. It’s completely up to you and your RP partner(s).
Older members, you can do the same as the new members and meet someone new or you can choose to draw a scene from an RP in your character’s past--so long as whatever scene you choose was where your character met
Features and ramblingsFeatures and ramblings11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Spring has started off surprisingly well, despite right after holiday break I was feeling bit depressed because I don't have lot of classes to go to, and it was 90% self-motivation, personal project shenanigans. I don't like working at home, so scripting and sketching, even when I made progress, felt sort of ineffective use of time. Following schedules in home environment doesn't suit me at all, which is why I likely don't want to be full-time freelancer. I NEED PEOPLE ENVIRONMENTS
In any case, I was in the middle of making a game art portfolio, when I sort of abruptly got employed by Rovio. This literally came out of nowhere, all I can say is that, keep up an online portfolio, doesn't matter if it's not like top notch design, it's just super important to keep up your contact info and gallery up. Hopefully this will lead into something fruitful, I think this is a real nice op
