La la la ~ the pursuit of happyness?  
I just finished this piece this morning. Ages ago, I promised Jun-chan a picture, and finally was able to do it. I meant to give it to her for her birthday a few weeks ago, but I wasn't finished.... (which reminds me of other people I want to draw for...) But I really like how it turned out! It didn't take that long, either.. [full version here] In this case, I took a lot of pictures during the coloring process to be able to make a tutorial presentation thing sometime. In any case, I'm slowly getting used to copic markers and techniques with color works. You might be surprised, if you don't do this, that there are at least 5 mediums involved in just that one little picture. ^^; But I really, really love this kind of art! ^o^

Next on my plate is some sketches for OU and maybe a color like these if I have a chance. Eventually I've got a poster assignment for them. I also need to to a picture for a new journal design for the season. =^-^= Spring is definitely close at hand, my allergies are telling me! ^o^;;;*sneeze*

As for life... well, as I said, I spent Tuesday looking for apartments, Wednesday at a work meeting, and it's Thursday and today I don't know.. It's not quite warm enough to sketch outside, but it's getting there. I was thinking in the bath whether I should take commissions for arts like the one in my last post... But I'm not sure how much people would pay or if I'd find it to my liking.. mm I guess I'm just thinking out loud..

Sugee! It's so cute! I was also reminded of Tanemura Arina when I first saw your picture. I'm sure Junko-san will love it! It's so adorable!! Great job! This makes me excited that one day I could be reading your manga :DDD

Good luck with apartment searching and with life in general! Ganbatte ne! ♥

Another cute art (^__^)/ I love the cat (it's the cat, right? in the picture 'coz I can't draw any animal in any style (-__-;)

Hope you'll find the right apartment soon.

I love your artwork. Your style is gorgeous! I like everything--the dynamic pose, the color choices, the hair, OMGoodness :-) I'll be looking forward to the tutorial, whenever you have time for it. And I'll be looking forward to seeing your new layout.

Springtime in Japan must be gorgeous. I hope your allergies don't give you too much trouble.

Good luck with everything! *hugs*

I am interested with the whole art commision thing. Haha. I just love your art. ♥

But its a really pretty drawing. I hope you will be making more and more art pieces in the future. :D Have you consider making a doshinji while working with your new manga? ♥

Pretty~ You did an awesome job on the coloring...I would definitely be interested in commissioning some of your art ^_^

I love your coloring! :3 It's such a happy picture. :3

As for price? Take in the number of hours it takes you to work on a piece, and times it at the very least by 10. Otherwise if you feel that can be expensive, remember the cost of your supplies and what your time is worth. XD For work like this and I would say DO NOT go under 25 or 30 USD, and that's on the cheap end!

SOOOOO AWESOME! I LOVEIT!! *Saves it so that she can admire it always from her computer*

Ne ne, if the poster is that pirate themed one then I might need to ask you to have it done before the end of the month. The pirate poster is for AniZona 3 which happens on the first weekend of April, and we'll need it ahead of time in order to promote the event on our website via banners and other goodies. If it isn't anything piratey then ignore everything I've just said! XD

*snuggles* Luff you! Hope things continue to make you happy and inspired!
