Loosely, looooosely based on a Ashura statue that I saw in Nara made in like... year 734. Ashura is god of war, has 3 heads and 6 arms. This particular statue is a little different since it is Ashura after he has been enlightened by Buddha and he becomes one of the guardians. Or something. This description is based on the plaque I saw. This is my take on this statue, and the main one is the war loving Ashura, the other heads are asleep and one is making a sad face, and the other smile.

Finally being more motivated these days... phew.

ummm. I already broke the other goal of updating every day, but here is todays.. I don't really know what it is. I think I don't really know what I want to draw now.

300 px version of the pixel of Alayna's character design. I still need to make her run~~~~.

I think I will make it my goal to try to update everyday... kind of like a daily journal or comic-a-day sort of thing. So here is todays sketch... not under drawing done, just kinda went with it with my ink pen, and then colored in photoshop.

on other personal news, I got a pedometer! It's really cool because it gives you the amount of money you would be spending on a taxi along side how much you walked. I walked about 6000 steps yesterday and that was about 890 yen (about $9-$10?) on a taxi. It just makes me feel like I'm gaining 890 yen, or at least not using it, and it makes me want to walk more... Now I just need to keep it up...

pixel animation....?

Another simple eye motion. I'm working one where she is actually moving (running) but... as I expected, it is quite hard. ^^; I think that might take a while.....

le sigh

But I'm learning so that is always a good thing!

This is a small pixel version of the last character design I did. Just a simple eye motion. I'm not too satisfied with the pixel job so I might redo him someday.

This is based off of a character design done by Alayna, and I made a pixel version of it. The chibi is done by me, and then I started doing the pixel version for her looking straight forward. But then I remembered I'm going to do an animation of her walking so I started doing the version of her from the side. Both the lineart pixel and the side view done smaller then shown. Now I'll see if I can actually animated her! ^^;

Other stuff on my to do list:
Card designs (personal project)
Picture book
More experimenting with Pixel
Illustration Friday
Maybe doing stuff my homepage again...

and many more!! (I hope)
