I love cats, but most of all I love my cat Schumi. This is why I made a post only for his sake. I hope you will like it, so here it is: makingmanga.com/2010/10/my-cut…

Love you,

Hariana

Or, as I call it: tbotg in short. This is a manga project that I've started to think of, a long time ago. Actually it passed almost 2 years, and yet, I couldn't bring myself to work on this project. Or, maybe I just wasn't satisfied on the characters I thought of, and the most important thing: my art capabilities were still lame. I think now I can draw ok, and even if there is A LOT of place for improvement I guess this will just have to come in time.

The tbotg is a story of a priestess revived in present, a young, modern girl, who has nothing special, a handsome young man who has a twisted life, and a lot of mystical, magical, comical, mysterious adventures - I can't tell too much because I don't want to spoil the mystery.

For now, this is kind of it. But, I promise to finish the first chapter until the end of September. So "stay tuned" :P

I've succeeded in entering University again (Japanese section this time). This is my second time, so I hope I won't screw this again (by getting bored, and not going to classes anymore). But, because I love Japanese so much I doubt that will happen.
I've decided to take JLPT3, so that I will have a strong motivation for learning. And I also need to get my spirits up!
I've started to work at the first chapter of a manga that I dream of doing for so long (called "The Book of The Gods"). I have finished the script, and even if I think it needs a bit of improvement here and there, I think that overall it is good, and captivates the reader. I am not sure about how will my artwork make it look like, but I will try my best to do a good but most of all a fast work!
I want to start learning also things that could help me earn some money (like CSS and HTML), but every time I decide to start learning something comes up :sigh:
And I started to work on editing Vol.33-Ch.3 of Glass Mask, and I hope it won't take more than a couple of days to finish the job.
So, this being said, please wish me good luck!
Love,
Hariana

Today is Monday, and a new week has started. I have some plans for it, including some drawing, learning at English and French intensively, because in less than a month I will have an exam at these 2 objects. I wish to improve my skills and I have in plan to do so many things, that i shouldn't be wasting any time!!!
Wish me "Good luck!".

I am working on a manga project and i finished building one of the characters (one of the main characters). After making an artwork related to her, i will move on to the next characters. I hope i will make them a little bit faster, because in this rhythm i won't ever finish it!

But, i will try to do it, because i really like the story i made :heart: and i want you all to read it :love:

I've decided!! From today onwards i'll be posting everyday on my blog and at least every 2 days on deviant!! This will keep me focused and will make my drawing skills better!

P.S. If you want me to do an artwork for you just let me know. I do chibies, faces, full body, and action poses. I just want you to ask me!!!!

Thanks and luv you :heart:

I went to Anli Pollicino concert in Bucharest and i really liked them, even though i wasn't that much of a fan. I liked the atmosphere and i can tell that they know how to make a show. Well...there is room for improvement, but let's not be so critic! I really liked the way the band members were dressed up, and also the make-up. I have to mention though, that they were very feminine...but they were sexy and attractive! Nice show, so it was worth the money and the effort :)

i have been thinking lately: is this really for me? i mean i am no special, and i am not very talented...even if i want very much to build stories, it never goes the way i want and at the end i always get disappointed of myself...even if i have great imagination, i never use it the right way...and with my bad drawing skills, i don't think i can do anything notable in this domain...
but then, when i think about quitting, i think: wait, what will you do with this urge of creating new worlds? and new people? what will you do with all the "people" you've created? i mean, can i end their "lives" just like that?
finally, when i see this website and all the talented people that draw and create so beautiful art, i think "i'll never be better then they are" :( this is kind of saddening...
but hey? who am i fooling? i just need to do what i feel...it doesn't really matter if it is good or bad or if it has a purpose..or does it?

yesterday was my birthday and i am 23 now. i was very happy to receive "happy birthday" calls and to hear from persons i haven't heard from for so long.
the thing that made me even more happy was my birthday "party" - a nice evening meal with my friends and then with my family. i received a lot of presents, which is why i like this period of the year the most: i like to be the only one receiving presents.
one of my precious presents was a set of japanese ceramics (rice bowl, soup bowl, rice spoon, and a plate) and some nice designed chopsticks, and a paper fan. oh, and also a beautiful box, to keep all this in it :P
well, now that my passion for japan was once again nurtured, i have new forces to learn japanese and to improve my drawing skills.
what made me a little bit sad, was that some friends of mine haven't called me yet...but i'm still waiting :D

I was at my art class today and had a contradictory discussion with a colleague of mine. He thought that he knew everything and said some things like "you don't know enough" as long as he didn't knew some things on the matter we were discussing on...
anyway, there is a common thing in romania to think that you know and can do almost everything; but the thing is that nobody does the things the way it should be done...they do things superficially and then expect you to praise them; they even think they are better then you are, and tell you that. you have to have a lot of guts to do that!

I want to do an illustration with a swing and started to browse the web and inevitably i browsed the deviant too. And i found some really interesting and sweet drawings. I've faved some of them...if you want to see them, just look in "nice art" collection.

i hope i'll have some good inspiration and do a nice illustration.
I made myself a blog with some tutorials and some of my work. I love anime and manga, so the theme of the blog is an anime style one.
I'm doing my best to do good tuts, so i hope you'll visit!
