Uwaaa.. it's been a loooooong time since I've CGed something. I wanted to get back in the practice of it, so I pulled out a relatively recent pen sketch of mine and gave it some color. =D This is my character, Choko, from an online comic I want to one day get off the ground. (Yes, she's based on me, well her appearance and rough personality is..) I sketch the characters every now and then, and it's been on my mind a lot. ^^; I just suck at sequential art, because it takes me so long. Hmm... speaking of which, this pic was colored in photoshop CS, and took about 3 hours.. >.>;;; I'm slow I know. ^^;; But it's like the time flies when I'm coloring! :O


Anyway, yeah! Whee!! Now to work on something more worthy of shonen jump!! :O Or yaoi.... Practice is practice, ne?

*admires you so much you can't imagine*
If you show them something like this they'll fall in love with your drawings I'm sure! Of course since it's shounen jump you can't draw yaoi but..once you're in the business you can do whatever you want *_*
Anyway I like this draw so much!!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 18th, 2005 02:42 pm (UTC)
LOL Shonen Jump has no idea just how much yaoi is in their comics.... or do they? XD

Thank you!! <33 I appreciate the compliments!! ^^ My retarded lack of self-confidence really needs them!! *hugs*

Aww, she's so cute!! I love the colours you used. I guess you should work mostly on original stuff, ne? but some fan art is OK too. and they would probably think it was cute if you were into any Jump series *cough cough* XD

should I go ahead and advertise the new comms? ;3
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 18th, 2005 02:56 pm (UTC)
I didn't really do this for Shonen Jump, but it may be used somewhere. XD Maybe on my business cards... >=D They need an overhaul anyways!! =D It was made basically to practice, and you know that drawing's been sitting in my sketchbook for such a long time.. (what, like two weeks now? lol)

Advertise the crap outta' em!! <33334555677

So cute! You'll bring it to show the dudes Wednesday, right? Aa, so exciting! :D
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 18th, 2005 03:22 pm (UTC)
Sankyuu!! I dunno if I'll bring it to show them, I'd like to do something better actually..... this was kinda like a warm up.

But I have another week unexpectedly, yay!! <33 The meeting was pushed back a week because Mr. Obana had a meeting this Wed. (luckily for me.. but I'm still SO excited!!!)

That's sooo beautiful!
Did you learn through school or maybe is there a site with tutorials I could learn from?
You are so inspirational!!!!!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 18th, 2005 10:31 pm (UTC)
Thank you!!

OMG.. I REALLY wish that school had taught me. But we only had one photoshop class and it was the kind where you learn to touch up photos (already could do..). My technique is all self taught, from having used photoshop for over 8 years now. ^^;; But it's really worthwhile to look for some tutorials online that strike you as useful. I've picked a lot of tricks up from them over time!! <33 One day I'll write some of my own but it's one of those projects I've always had sitting on the backburner..

It's so pretty *.* Also it doesn't matter on the time you take to get it done, it's the fact that you got it done =D Anyway I'm sure you'll be able to come up with something great to pitch to Shounen Jump! This alone is just so awesome *bounces* Can't wait to see more of your work ^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on April 18th, 2005 10:35 pm (UTC)
Awww, sankyuu!! *hugs* I want to become more affluent though. I must work harder! =D
