Happy New YearHappy New Year everyone, and let's welcome the year 2013!
We hope we'll have a great year!
To celebrate the first day of 2013, I've decided to make a gift for all Draw with Me fans out there:
On another note, to all Filipinos out there (especially those in Baguio), may convention akong gustong ibalita sa lahat:
Facebook Event Page: http://www.facebook.com/events/495877997112877/
Bag-Iw Art Society, Literati and the Komikon Group are bringing an event up to the North! The event will showcase talents from comic artists from the different parts of Luzon! Meet, greet and rub elbows with the creators of your favorite comics.
Sayang lang wala pa akong mabigay sa lahat para magkaroon ng stand, pero bibisita ako para sumuporta at tumulong ng mga staff ng event!

My very very very very very very very very veryvery very very very very very very very very very very first application that's not on PC.
After months of preparing papers, hardwares, and money, i'm finally able to put my very first application on the App Store!
Allow me to introduce: OuO
A free app that makes your iphone/ipod touch a cute smiling face.
Not only that, you can also poke its eyes and cheeks to make cute expressions.
Here's a screenshot:
It's not a masterpiece, but it's a good start for me at least. Not only for me, but for my other friends here who are planning on making apps too.
(To those who might wonder "This ain't Mike, says here it's [BloodCELL]", Bloodcell's gonna be the name we'll be using for Appstore.)
It's not yet available in HD. Why?
Because I don't have an iPad or iPhone4 to test the app.
Updates as of OctoberWe weren't able to make it by Halloween.
(Give us a month or two, hopefully it'll be done by then)
On another note:
Here in Baguio City (Philippines), me and my sis mogumogumogu will be attending the upcoming Anicraze 2:
We will be part of the judges of the "Anime Drawing Contest" activity.
And if the plan turns out right, I might do actual animation there, live.
(I hope it does, so I can also show a preview of Missing Halloween there as well)
Updates as of February (Music Video)Me and Circus-P are proud to present:
I'm so happy it's done and up for everyone to see!
Also, the Baguio Komikon 2013 was fun~

blurpblooblup. ;____; (Animania Awards)I am sorry I am spamming journals lately!
;;___;; tears of happiness guys. SOBSOB
Yesterday someone wrote me a message on tumblr, saying 'congrats on 2nd place!'. confused, I inquired what this was about and then I found out this...-> http://youtu.be/EhQG5gGryyA Notice the titles displayed in the background.
Grimms Manga, to which I contributed the story 'king thrushbeard', won 1st place for Best National Manga, in the Animania Awards 2012.
And not only that, runner up was...Lost and Found. my own. my ...first...this one!
I... this is like double-christmas. I am truly flabbergasted and I don't know what to say, except that this means a lot to me. /_\ I knew Tokyopop did a great job on their part. graphic design, marketing, sales.... But this is a reader-voting system, and me, who is absolutely NOT active in the German Manga community managed to be up there. It's pretty crazy.
So: Ganz ganz lieben Dank an alle meine Deutschen Fans/Leser. das bedeutet mi
After 7 years...I finally have enough to get those
I saw them first in 2006 here on dA and I wanted to get them so bad!
Whenever I had side money to buy stuff, there were other things I needed t get and it's never easy to buy a +$300 worth of tools in one go. Yeah, I could've bought them separately but somehow I didn't do that either, and it's not like it's cheaper that way on the long run.
Thankfully, to god for his blessings, to all of you who bought stuff from me and of course to MangaMagazine.net for their amazing service and constant support for indie creators, I have better income this year than the last. I have a bit of stability and I was able update my tools (digital and traditional) these past 2 months (and one left this month hopefully), without any help from my father, who has always been supportive; financially and emotionally.
I hope they all come as good investments in the end.
So, it all sounds romantic right now, but I had my share of

Photoshop TutorialHey my little deerlings!
Remember that photoshop tutorial I mentioned long time ago I would do?
Well! I finally decided to start doing something about it! Last night, I wrote down a list of things I would like to talk about in it and I would like to tell you what I have planned. Because this will be multiple part tutorial, I won't be doing only one, but 3 or even 4 different tutorials.
Here are what I was planning to talk about in each part.
Part 1 - Getting to know Photoshop! Tips, tools and Tricks.
In this part, I would pretty much introduce you to photoshop and the tools that I use the most. I would teach you some of the most helpful tools and their shortcuts. Some words about layers and how to use them. And maybe something about filters and adjustments.
This is obviously not that important if you are already quite familiar with photoshop but you might learn something new. The main reason though is to make you familiar with some of the tools so I don't have to explain them in
Art is...... what makes me fly without wings.
I've been listening to my old Westlife CDs and "Flying Without Wings" came on and it was like I've been transferred to another place where all made sense.
When I said to GenshiVenom once that Art is my White, or when I tell my family and friends that no man/husband/lover/person would be able to make me feel what art/creating makes me feel; I meant exactly what that song is talking about...
Flying without wings.
No person and no thing makes me feel that.
Sitting on a chair holding a small stick-shaped thing in hand moving it here and there, then there again... for 5 minutes, 3 hours, 7 or even 12 hours... I'm flying without wings.
My family members always ask; "Are you always hungry/thirsty/tired whenever you see me?" and I just recently realized why is that.
Because I honestly don't feel a thing when I'm on my art desk.
And once you take me off that trip through the invis
Merry ChristmasHappy Holidays to everyone!
I wish I got something for everyone, it's a shame I have nothing.
This is the only thing I have so far:
That one's still work in progress, of course.
And I want to say thanks to sir Aura, miss Weee, and to everyone else over at 4LS for inviting me to their Secret Santa. Minisite: http://katawa-shoujo.com/secret/santa12/ Blog post: http://katawashoujo.blogspot.com/2012/12/merry-christmas-from-4ls_24.html
The Parlour IncidentOne day in July, I believe it was, I found myself sitting with several acquaintances in Christopher's parlour. It was one of those deliciously lazy afternoons which only the summer in her full glory can bring. The room had a wan, listless light to it, relaxing the other guests and myself as we languidly chatted over tea and crumpets. The air was also sluggishly heavy, dulling the senses to a slowly-blended calm engendered by the heat of St. Othniel's southerly climate.
At length, after much stimulating conversation, Christopher stood, producing a book of sheet music.
"What do you all say to a bit of music?" he asked.
"Certainly," I answered.
"Oh yes, please do darling!" Tabitha exclaimed, "he's quite the maestro."
Christopher laughed, shaking his head.
"Now, now love, I'd not go that far."
He strode over to the piano as the other guests urged him on. Ida entered the room bearing a merrily steaming teapot and more crumpets.
"More tea sirs?" she inquired, shooting sideways glances at her
Keep in Touch!
Lilyas has dedicated herself to making our community a brighter place with her vibrant artwork and infectious enthusiasm for interacting with others in our community. It has certainly paid off, as many deviants flock to her page on a daily basis to let her know how much of an inspiration she is. We absolutely agree, and couldn't let all that hard work go without recognition, so it's with great pride that we bestow the Deviousness Award for March 2014, to ... Read More
