Here are some photos of the Kigu I won back in March for this entry shauni-chan.deviantart.com/art… into the Ni No Kuni Design a familiar contest. I ware it a comic con in Manchester for a while, but due to a heat wave in the UK at the time I had to take it off. Thank you very much Bandi Namco and the Kigu company that made it!

OMG I ACTUALLY WON!!!

The Ni No Kuni "Design a familiar" contest I mention, I ACTUALLY WON IT!

To quote my e-mail

"I'm really excited to tell you that LEVEL-5 CEO, Akihiro Hino and the director, Ken Motomura picked your design, 'Snappy Dresser' shauni-chan.deviantart.com/art… as the winner of our Kigu design contest!


They said "I like the organic design of the dress as well as the colors. It's very fashionable!"

I get a one-of-a-kind custom Kigu based on my design. I'm actually in SHOCK!

Little weird when I got home from my holiday and found a Princess Peach 3DS waiting for me. I knew it was coming as Club Nintendo told me in February I'd won it, but it's been so long I was acutally thinking it was a scam.

I've just also been informed there were only 1000 made....

These riots are getting ridiculous...

Just a heads up to my friends and watchers that are in other countries, I'm fine. The UK riots have only hit major inner city areas at the moment. I haven't seen so much as a burnt out car.

And  it seems the British Weather has come to the rescue.

"A huge police operation and heavy rain in some areas appear to have prevented a fifth night of disorder."

I won't talk about the riots yet as even I don't really know what is happening, and I live here.

It seems to be "aggressive shopping " ( a term I hate that has been coin by some idiot and is now on the news) and (organised?) mindless violence at the moment on a VERY big scale, with attacks on Police and property damage. It's getting way out of hand. I don't have numbers, but the news channels are reporting deaths now, which is horrible...I've never seen anything like it in my life. These people are laughing as they are setting buildings on fire and are just blatantly breaking into shops and looting.

I'll give you an update when I know more.

A wedding, a wedding, were going to have a wedding www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bxz_lR…

Friday marks the Royal Wedding of Prince William & Kate Middleton www.officialroyalwedding2011.o… . It marks an unexpected but very much welcome Bank Holiday for the United Kingdom. I will be off work and intend to watch the big event on TV.

It’s a big deal for the UK and even though I don’t personally keep up to date with the Royal’s, I’m happy that they are getting married and wish them all the best on there big day. Lets hope it doesn’t rain! It’s been beautiful weather and awful weather all at the same time!

As far as I am aware the wedding should be being broadcast in a lot of different countries, so why not catch a bit of British pomp and glory!

Also, talking about Weddings, give my friend Sarahmon  sarahmon.deviantart.com/ a call if you need a wedding photographer
and live in the North West of England. She also has contact details for a makeup artist, beautician and wedding accessories sales website.

Regards
Shauni

Cha! I just got to play with a Nintendo 3DS! I randomly went into Game Station to pre-order Pokemon White and I was watching a 3DS trailer they had on a TV and the guy behind the counter was like "Do you want to give one a try?"

They didn't have any games, but they had the Blue 3DS with the installed software. I had a go of one of the inbuilt games that uses the camera and augmented reality technology. There was a card on the counter and when the game started I had to shot targets, but the 3DS kept messing with the picture, at one point making a huge bump bounce up and down on the desk. It works smiler to the PSPs Invizimals but has the power to actually warp what you see. I didn't get a test the 3D features massively but the images didn't exactly pop out at me as I was expecting. I hope the actual games 3D engine is better. Then again, the 3D bar may have been on low, I can't really comment....its a neat little console though. Convinced me to get one when some more colours come out. The console was very shiny! Not matt plastic at all! Very nice looking in fact.

Cha!

Been inspired recently to draw one-off sketches. Not found time yet to do more than one , but I have a series in mind. I'm going to call it "The Elements". "Bowen of the void" in this series is the element "Beyond". There are going to be 6 other sketches (ohhhh.....that's 7 in total! That number keeps popping up doesn't it? I wonder why lol). There are going to be:

"Ophelia of the Crystal Lake" ( Ophelia is a fictional character in the play Hamlet by William Shakespeare. In the play Ophelia fell into a brook and drowned) of the element "Water".

"Halite of the Promised Land" (Halite is commonly known as rock salt and is the mineral form of sodium chloride (NaCl).) of the element "Ground"

"Icarus of the Divine Storm" (Icarus is from Greek mythology, Icarus flies using wings constructed from feathers and wax. He flies to close to the sun) of the element "Wind"

"Prometheus of the Rising Sun" (Prometheus is also from Greek mythology. Prometheus stole fire from the Gods and gave it to man kind) of the element "Fire"

"Angelus the Messanger" (the Latin angelus which in turn is the romanization of the ancient Greek (angelos) means"messenger") of the element "Light"

"Kerberos of the Gates" (Kerberos, in Greek and Roman mythology, is a multi-headed hound which guards the gates of Hades) of the element "Dark"
