sketches of friends and...?

So I had couple ol friends over and decided to sketch. 2 are not from life (which one of them is super obvious) and they don't exist or is my friend.

I kind of need to explain my cute animey girl one, because I'm actually quite amused. I was on youtube, and there is this girl who calls herself "Magipon" and apparently she is an American girl who wants to be Japanese. She speaks (although she doesn't speak much on the video) Japanese, and as far as I know in most of them she just sits in front of her computer/camera and nervously (shyly) smiles and looks around. Sometimes she brings in inanimate objects such as coke and say "Co-ku de--su (this is coke)" or bring pizza and say "Piza de~~su (this is pizza)" and end the video with her waving and saying "bai bai (bye bye)." I didn't understand at all in what she was trying to do, and I still don't, but it was in my head.


in the lower right hand corner, I have her saying "ha-i Magi de-su (hello I'm Magi)" "co-ku de-su" "piza de-su" ".... bai bai"

Back from Anime Central!

Anime Central: The biggest anime convention in midwest, a huge fun geek fest. :D

Not really art related, but mostly went for fun. Actually there were quite a few people who were really good at the Artist Alley, makes me want to do more things!!

I also went really geeky and dressed up as a character. Fuu from Samurai Champloo. :3

The graduation ceremony was today. It's still kind of surreal that I have graduated...

Starting new

My graduation is this Saturday, it is coming up quick. Pretty surreal...

I drew a girl influenced by Taniguchi Kazuko, a girl surrounded by sakura pedals... it kind of represents a new beginning because in Japan new school starts in spring when sakura is in full bloom.

I will miss my college years, but I hope my new beginning is a good one.

School is finished.....

My school life has officially ended yesterday! I am out in "the real world" now....

I'm posting the finished version of "The Skillful Huntsmen" illustration, and some sketches I have done of my classmates. I am pretty satisfied with the illustration; I think I will continue trying to play around with traditional media for awhile. :D
