In Way Over You Head!

Is that a name of a song, because it sounds really good:

Hey! Hey!
Stop adding it on!
You're in way over your head!
IN WAY OVER YOUR HEAD!
Hey! Hey!
Yeah! Yeah!

Just thinking that'd how it'd go...y'know.

Okay...so I've started typing and all, and I've got all these ideas written down...but since I wanted the group (I'm talking about the last post) to have a lot of members and then I thought about how it would be throughout the auditions and all, and started thinking about AKB48...I ended up with 60 characters...my only problem is that I have to make them all individuals...so...right now I have to design 60 characters!! O.O Umm...should I cut it down to 30? I've actually done this before with a school. But then I deleted the file...on purpose...

So I have to make 60 characters and come up with names for the whole group...-.-; What's something that has to do with 60? I was thinking of calling it 1-2-60...but that sounds weird. Like from the first member to 60, just like that. Oh! 60-Just Like That...no....that doesn't sound good either. Has to do with 60, but I don't know. Heh....AKB60...>.> School's Out! No...that doesn't sound good either...-.-;

Though there will be 60, there will only be emphasis on a few members, like 15 of those 60...and mostly on the two Mariko's....But I don't know...>.>

I need your help!!

Inspiration! Thank you AAA!!

Umm...the title says it all, basically! I've been listening to AAA music! I really like the sound of the singing (but all the PVs/songs seem really dark) so it's given me a HUGE idea for Mariko!. I call it HUGE because...it might make me change the whole name and everything...but probably not...

Okay, I must be annoying you by preparing to tell you, so I'll just tell you! Okay! My idea is this:

To make all the characters into one big girl/boy singing group! With acting like AKB48. And this makes it more original, because I don't think there's such thing as a girl/boy happy jpop group with acting videos...But because of this big change, I think I might need to change the name...And also since the group would be really big, there'd be sub-groups like Morning Musume's group....and solo singers, but they'd all still be in the same group.

Hrmmm...would that be a good idea? It sounds fun to do! ^ ^ And then it'd basically be a day in the life, behind the scenes, and all, but different, like with a little more story.

Eee!! Such a big idea! I MUST type this now....after dinner, I suppose...

(But I have stuff for challenges to draw....ehh, I've done enough today)

Bye-bye! ^ ^ Off to go write a LOT of stuff on Word! ^ ^

Vampiro!! NYAN-NYAN!!

Well...I'm listening to music by Aural Vampire...and I really like the way she looks! ^ ^ She looks like Misa Misa 'cept with vampire teeth! ^ ^

Okay! So yesterday my mom dragged me and my brother to some...uhhh...meeting thing where we talk about helping out the community. It was really boring, she wants me to join the club or whatever, and I just want to do the clean ups, not any of those social things (I'm not social, 'cept on the internet, and still not very social). And my old science teacher was there and EVERYTHING she mentioned had to do with her church or just church in general!! Gosh! We're trying to think of OTHER things than church...-.-; It was also kinda funny because my brother, who's an atheist, is sitting next to her! ^ ^; So, you have the church worshiper and the atheist sitting next to eachother. It's really sad, though, that she was actually my SCIENCE teacher...>.> She wasn't very good either...-.-;

And then after that we went and got stuff for dessert and I got MUFFINS! ^ ^ Chocolate chip, to be more specific! ^ ^ I got to get two, so had one last night, and on for breakfast! ^ ^ But I'm sad that it's gone...TT.TT

OH! I can't remember when this was, but I was eating a chocolate bar while watching Food Network, and it just so happens that whatever I was watching was about chocolate! That's never happened before!!

So I've finished meh Squee picture! ^ ^ I actually edited the coloring, which I shouldn't have done. So now you can't see the highlights in his hair..-.-; I just like the background, which is why I kept it the way it was. It was really hard to see though, on my computer, at least. Because it's...LCD? So I had to look at it at some angle to see it, since the hair and clothes were supposed to be black, but not pitch black, it was really hard to shade and highlight...-.-;

OH! Wanna hear what I'm listening to? It's really catchy! ^ ^ Still by the same Aural Vampire person/girl thing....group?:

I was planning to listen to some new K-pop (Korean-pop) artists, but they were all hip-hop and rappish...so I decided not to. The only K-pop artist I like is BoA...and I don't know why...So, instead, I just started listening to some Avex Trax artists (since Goto Maki and Alan are in there, there's bound to be some good singers) so I've found a bunch, which I will list right now:

AAA (this one I was surprised! I've never heard of a group with a mix of girls and boys who aren't in a band, and just sing and dance, it's really cool)

Aural Vampire (VAMPIYA! Really catchy songs)

BeForU (I've always loved this group, their songs are on DDR)

Genki Rockets (this group was just really interesting)

Hitomi (I dunno, just popular and has good music, but nothing amazing and outstanding)

Aiko Kayo (Another normal singer)

Hatsune Okumura (BEAUTIFUL voice)

OLIVIA (japanese, American, AND German)

Sifow (she's...ummm...those kindsa girls with the really dark skin and white make-up...I think that one manga Super Gals, is based off of them)

Sowelu (really cool music, she's Irish-Japanese)

Ami Suzuki (probably my favorite, she's like a solo Perfume, and has really good music and singing)

Vanilla Mood (listening to one of their songs right now. They have a really unique style. They're like classical and jpop put together. Their music is really soothing)

Gosh...I was gonna say something else....but I forgot...ehhhhrmmm...what was I doing?

Work, work, work...>.<

I've been working like crazy these past...one day...>.> Well, I said I'd do about four challenges. And they're all driving me insane ('cept the squee challenge, that one's fun). For the Royalty challenge I'm making an Empress, but I can't get the hair right...what does it look like from the side!? But I'm pretty fine with coloring the clothes and putting the design. For the draw a lolita challenge...well, I've been thinking about this all night long (heh, inside joke)...and I still have no idea. I wanted to make it like a flowery lolita dress, but then I keep thinking of Kirakishou's dress...so now I'm thinking of making it like a futuristic lolita kinda thing...but I can't think of anything! And then the screenshot challenge thing...well, I had this idea for a long time, but it's really hard because it involves people riding bicycles (I already drew two, so I'm fine right now when it comes to bicycles) with a detailed background and JUMPING. I have no clue how to draw jumping!! Especially the kind that I'm drawing in meh picture...so it'll probably take me a while to draw it, because I can't figure it out...same for the the person riding the bike...-.-;

Oh! Listen to this song that has been stuck in my head for days:

It's so catchy! ^ ^ But it doesn't really sound Perfume-ish....O.o

OH! OH! And then this song, I love it to death (heh):

Ehem, it's very, very violent, though, which is not really like me. But it's sooo cool sounding! There's not music video of that song, and only some Black Lagoon AMV and iDOLM@STER video based off of that AMV, which is this video. I don't like the Black Lagoon AMV, the song may be longer, but it's very violent...

OH!! OH!! My mom finally bought Microsoft Word! It was very stressful buying it, though because my mom put in all the stuff and then it didn't work, so she tried it again, and thankfully it did work! So now I can type whatever I want! Though it said that it's not for commercial use...I dunno what that means, it could mean anything. Like you can't use it to write books, but then what would be the point of it, or the program cannot be copied and sold...or something....O.o

Oh...and wanna see my WIPs now?:

I did the lineart for the squee challenge, and I'm gonna color it some time today or tomorrow, and then I'll be done! ^ ^. The girl is for the draw a lolita challenge, that's just her pose (not showing you it when it has the dress), and then the bicycles and part of the rider for the challenge I was talking about back thing. Wonder what's gonna happen!

Okay! Soo....ummmm....I'm gonna go type stuff on microsoft word now! ^ ^ YAY!!

WIP

Yes, let me show ya meh WIP. They're all very detailed, so I dont't really want to do the lineart or anything, yet...maybe tomorrow:

The person with the green ball of squiggles? 'tis for the squee challenge. The woman thing, is for the royalty challenge. And the other girl is supposed to be Koharu Kusumi, but I'm not done (all the members are actually in the picture).

Also, I've been looking for ideas on how I should draw the cover for Mariko!...so I looked at music manga, but the site I was using also had the manga's summaries. A LOT of them were pretty crappy sounding. Let me show you some of the crappiest:

Ami is a normal school girl. One day with her friends, she got stopped for an interview by a camera crew who thought Ami was really cute.

Shortly afterwards, Ami meets a blond boy who goes to her school named Nozomu. He seems to show some interest in her too. However, after she went to the 'Darwin', a group of two boy singers, concert, she met another Nozomu.

Very soon after the encounter with Darwin, she then got roped into the entertainment world as there were many people already interested in her from her live interview, who she later also became interested in.

(Actually, this sounds a lot like Mariko!, just kinda opposite and doesn't sound right)

"When you can play this tune, play it for me..." Suzuno has always been searching for the boy who told her that, whom she met at a piano recital when she was small. After entering high school, she was chosen to play the piano to accompany a chorus competition. Suzuno started practicing with Aiba-kun and Fujisawa-kun from her class, but Fujisawa-kun told her that they used to meet when they were small...!?

(Sounds like practically every shoujo manga...>.>)

Kirari Tsukishima is a beautiful yet gluttonous 14-year-old girl. While those around her are worshiping the popular idol duo, SHIPS, she only devotes herself to food. One day, however, Kirari, who is dense when it comes to the matters of the heart, encounters Seiji Hiwatari of SHIPS and falls in love with him at first sight. In order to be with him, she aspires to become an idol herself. With the help of SHIPS - the gentle Seiji and the bad-mouth Hiroto Kazama – and her cat mascot Naa-san, Kirari pursues the entertainment world, where she discovers that being an idol is not all fun and games, and that in order to persevere in both her love and her career, she must overcome any challenges that fortune has in store.

(Eheh...>.> Well, I've seen the anime, Koharu Kusumi voices Kirari...Anyways, I guess it's good enough. It's where I got my idea for Mariko!, actually the anime did. Unfortunately, at the time I didn't know about the boys, I just saw clips. And then my male characters turn out sorta the same...'cept more extreme)

I really want to get started on Mariko! But I need to draw the cover and chapter cover...and my mom wants me to watch this movie I ordered, that I don't want to watch anymore....-.-; I did, until I watched this episode of Myth Busters...now I don't anymore. And I need to take a shower.

I'd explain my new idea for the beginning and everything...but unfortunately I can't explain it at ALL! Sorry about that. I just tried to, and I couldn't think of anyway to explain it, I can just see it play in my head.

I'm really clueless right now...I forgot what I was talking about....>.< I really want to start on meh manga!! TT.TT It's tearing me apart!! All of them except Clockwork...I don't know how to start Clockwork, and I'm not even going to attempt trying. I just drew the cover because I was really into Ali Project at the time and listened to all their songs and everything. Well, I'm kinda tired of them...so I'm listening to happy funny songs right now, which is why I need to start my happy funny manga!!

Alright! I think that's enough! Bye-bye!
