Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.
Happy: Alfred bearing gift
Still living and breathing... 
Haven't been drawing for a while because I got a new laptop! Which means I have to reinstall all the programs, and of course, with me being me, I procrastinated. So just today I FINALLY reinstalled Photoshop, wohoo!!! 

Russian traditional wedding dress, OMG I love traditional dresses!

Found an excellent website for information about the Russian culture and history and stuff: www.russia-ic.com

Life is still kicking my behind pretty hard, but I will manage. 
And on a totally unrelated note, HOLY COW it's RAINING... in California... WTH. It's not just raining... THE SKY IS FALLING. 
Well... as long as the temperature stays above 10°C I won't complain :D (Yes I grow up using Celsius instead of Fahrenheit)

Whether it's the best of times or the worst of times, it's the only time we've got.

Using an old picture... 
Jeez I have not drawn for so long... 

No, I have not dropped off from the face of earth yet. Unfortunately. 
Long story short, I have been extremely confused and busy lately... between a full-time job, a part-time job, finding a new job (preferably in another city, screw you, family), trying to be fit, getting a life, more family crap, etc. etc. A.K.A. the sort of things that tend to kill the muses... don't even feel like posting or speaking to anyone... 

I am feeling better this week though :) 

Still trying to get my muses back, so if I owe you art or something else... I beg your forgiveness and I SWEAR I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN. 
Till next time :D

May I never wake up from the American dream

Read this fascinating thread regarding Hetalia characters and tarot cards on wizzard890 's journal... and I JUST COULD NOT RESIST!!!

The Hanged Man (XII) and The Sun (XIX)

Random note: The Hanged Man is also known as The Traitor in older decks, interesting huh?

And now I want to try drawing the whole deck! *headdesk* THE KEYWORD IS "TRY".

America is a tune. It must be sung together.

Moments like this remind me why I should not give up hopes for humanity yet.

Here's what happened (copied and pasted):

June 30th, 2007 was Disability Awareness Night at Fenway Park. Peter Rometti, a young man with autism, sang the Star Spangled Banner before the baseball game. Halfway through, he started to struggle, laughing nervously and losing some of the words. Watch how 38,000 total strangers responded.

Having worked with autistic children and observed how some cultures reacted to the disabled in the past, I am speechless at the crowd's overwhelming support for the singer. That makes me proud to be an American, damnit.

When you have no idea what to draw...

...draw Mochimerica!!!

Continuation from this post; I am tagging these as Project Magnet from now on.
Translated about 3/5 of the lyric. Why is this so difficult... *vomit over the Japanese dictionary*

Cut cut cut cut cutCollapse )

I am going to take a break before I tear the dictionary apart. Should finish the translation by next week, then I can start drawing and learning how to create a video.
Note to self: Need to spellcheck and what not the lyric =_=

Nothing encourages creativity like the chance to fall flat on one's face

King of Junk Food

You can tell Alfred is my favorite character in Hetalia.

I love the song magnet; it was written by Ryuusei-P on NicoNicoDouga and sung by the vocaloids Hatsune Miku and Merurine Luka. Then a few days ago, I saw this when I was browsing through Hetalia fan videos. Someone rewrote the lyric of magnet to fit the Ivan/Alfred pairing lol. And now, I am really really REALLY tempted to draw it... ya, I kind of sort of want to make a fan video for this song. I am already translating the lyric, so the next step would be drawing pictures to go with the song and learning how to use the video maker... It's going to be interesting.

Have a cup of Arthur Kirkland!

Need... to... find... the... time... to... color...

I just created another LJ account, and I am in the process of (slowly) moving stuff to the new account.
Obviously, I do things at a whim.
And I also thought about creating a new deviantART account (just because I can), but that might be a little more complicated. One of these days I am going to clean the gallery up though.

Progress report: 

Spent two days and that's all I have finished lol

I spent most of the time drawing that stupid thing, and there is NO WAY to fit all those complicated details in. So too bad :D

P.S. I adore the 14th! His shining eyes and creepy smile are quite charming, right? *giggles*
