Video: Kosuke and Sakura

5 Feb

I was looking through old photos and video clips late last night, and I wanted to see if I could stitch together the ones I had of Kosuke. So I did. While I do have more recent clips of Sakura, I decided to go with the old clips from when Kosuke was still with us. Apologies for the shaky camera.

In loving memory of Kosuke,
June 25, 1996 – December 23, 2010.

Happy Holidays~!

Secret Santa: Rigel

Secret Santa piece for Penguin-Pinpin. Her character Rigel! This is the first time I participated in a Secret Santa art exchange (though it was a small private group), and I don’t think I’ve drawn full CG fanarts for artists in AGES, so it was great~ :)

pillow

I opened a Society6 account a few weeks back and made pillows, among other things. I took advantage of their limited time free shipping to get a pillow to gift to my mother for Christmas, and it arrived just in time! :) The printing quality is nice (or so I believe, as I don’t have other printed pillows to compare qualities), and they even include a pillow insert if you choose that option, so I’m pleased so far. I can’t personally say what the quality of the other merchandise are like, but I would hope that they’re just as great.

book

I was commissioned to draw a book cover a few months back, and the writer was kind enough to send me a free copy. While I personally had a hiccup when I saw that the cover lost some details in print, it was still a strange feeling to hold a tangible book with a cover I drew on it… I honestly DO NOT know what this book is about (I was simply given details for the cover and drew it out), so please direct all questions about the story to Johnathan Kelly. For those who would like to purchase a copy of this book, it is available on Lulu.

Christmas tree decorations from the hotel I stayed at in Kyoto a few weeks back. I’ll upload more photos to my tumblr in time.

2012 has been a fulfilling year for me full of opportunities and illustration busy-ness, and I hope 2013 will be just as great! Hope you all had an overall good year too, and I wish you all Happy Holidays! :)

Print version

I made the print version of the Kosuke and Sakura piece available on dA and ordered it for myself. And it arrived!
I hope Kosuke can see it too.

Bad Doggy

From Ragnarok Online. My warlock Beyll and Shadilyn’s maestro Kadenza.
Since she made fun of Beyll’s warlock attire, more specifically how it has male cleavage.

Hello world!

25 Feb

Starting a new art blog, named the Dog House, for my dogs Kosuke and Sakura. The current banner is a picture of Kosuke that I took in spring 2010.
I’ll have to continue exploring this, since I still don’t know what some of these features do, and I’m sure I’ll start finding certain areas that haven’t been customized properly yet.
And I have no idea what pages to add besides an About page, or whether I want to add pages at all.

The old art blog at LJ can be viewed here.
The plan for now is to basically do the same thing here; post sketches and WIPs. But I may do other things too depending on how things go. We’ll see.
As for my personal blog, it will remain where it has always been on LJ.

Kosuke and Sakura

Not quite a WIP since the work itself is actually finished now, but I wanted to post this to start off this blog in memory of Kosuke.
The full picture can be viewed at my website or my dA.

Rest in peace Kosuke. We love you so much!
