I was working on the cover for Idolling Chap 3 and decided to draw a pic of Klan for practice so I don't screw up on the cover.
Now I feel like doing a lot more drawings with copics.
I didn't do any lineart, and maybe that's what makes it easier because I disliked how this it made the pics look and then colouring over it didn't feel fulfilling.
Haha what is Klan wearing?! XD I wanted a weird outfit and I also wanted a print on his outfit...'orz it looks so silly now! XD
He kinda looks like Shou here...that was completely un-intentional...
Also his headphones look like a stethoscope...'orz I realized after I drew them that he probably only has it in one ear...'orz
Yepp...I hope to post the first few pages of Idolling chap 3 today~! :D
I thought about writing this in a journal, but nein, the world needs to know! Not really, but I thought it would be interesting to share!
The dream starts off where I'm in school sorta with my classmates and it's a new year. The classroom is weird because my entire class fits in it an it looks more like an auditorium, and at the bottom instead of a stage there's the cafeteria...O.o;
Anywayy...we were told about the basic rules and that you will be punished for losing a book or something, maybe it was your homework...I'm not sure. But I did lose it on the second day of school.
This is where it gets crazy weird.
My punishment was that they'd open the portal to the demon world and have the demons come in, I guess to scare us. Well, stupid them, they started killing people. They quickly closed the portal and the few demons that were left were killed by policemen.
Well now that we know what kind of school we are in (pretty sure it now turned into a magic school like Hogwarts) everyone stayed on their toes and did exactly what was told.
There was a gazebo outside with the architecture and student had a tent in there and either used it as a bedroom or just played in it, I don't know, but for some reason that was allowed.
There were your basic other students, the goth girl, the scary buff guy who look like he might bite your head off, the studious students, the people constantly on the verge up peeing their pants, the nice people, and your friends. (Why did I change from I to your...O.o;)
Eventually somebody did mess up and the stupid faculty, probably not the same people from last time, opened up the portal, but they didn't know how to close it so the portal was left open with an army of demons coming.
When I say demons I do not mean smexy animoo demons:
I mean like scary monster creepy demons:
Which are probably more monster than demon, but they were demons in meh dream. They also talked. Some of them were like the titans from Attack on Titan. They were also fairly colourful, but humongous and terrifying.
A bunch of people died and the school was totally destroyed including the land around it and the survivors were just hanging on the edges of land.
I think at this point the me in the first part of my dream changed to some other girl. I was debating...or just trying to figure out for sure if I was a girl or boy, but I'm pretty sure I was a girl...sorry, for the random bit of confusion...it's slightly important to this crazy story?
The only survivors was the goth girl, the guy who lived in the tent, the scary buff guy, a few girls who were either really nice or jerks, but it didn't really matter when everyone was trying to run away from the demons.
We were all split up into different caves so we weren't completely sure who survived. I looked back outside and the buff guy and a few other people were trying to kill the demons and were somewhat successful, but this is an army we're talking about. Even if you kill a few you still have thousands more coming. Eventually the other people were killed and he ran back into the caves to safety.
We felt a bit safe in the caves and just talked about how crazy everything was and how terrified we were. We could hear another group from inside the cave and rushed toward them and then their faint sounds of talking turned into screams and we stopped and went back (obviously they were just now killed). This wasn't really a good idea because the demon that just killed those guys now crashed through the cave and killed everyone except myself and the buff guy who ran to another cave.
There the goth girl was and the guy from the tent. The guy from the tent was complaining that he had important stuff in that tent for defending them, but the goth girl wouldn't listen. Eventually it looked clear and so the guy just ran outside and was picked up by a flying demon.
All seemed terrible UNTIL! We all remembered that we were in a school for magic and that we had magic powers, so why not use them? Duuuhhh...
We all ran out there and started attacking and soon we had enough space between us and the demons that we could move. Suddenly the goth girl began running to one end of the cliff and I chased after her leaving the buff guy to fend off the demons.
It turns out there was a little boy (sorta kind, he was more youthful than we were) standing by the shore. He looked a bit confused and very scared, but the goth girl tried to comfort him. Then the boy started telling us how we should put the demons back into the portal and then he started devising all these plans on how to do so. We ran back to where the buff guy was, but he was gone. We decided we must stay together at all costs.
We used his plans, but none of them worked. Mainly problem was that two people could not make thousands of demons return through a portal. We decided to flee and somehow flew on something to get out of there.
We found some temple-like area to hide in and stayed there for a while until the demons found us and destroyed the place. It was painful for me because there was an important building there...its importance I can only barely remember, and the rest of the place was under construction by numerous amounts of people and they were all just killed because of us.
We went further and further until the demons stopped following us and just cause havoc on the rest of the land we just left.
We fell onto some largely populated town. It looked like one of the small towns from Pokemon, but compared to the rest of the places we went to this was vastly larger in population. We kept running because we didn't trust that the demons weren't following us and hid in different places.
Then I asked some villager how to get rid of the demons. Oh yeah, the place was rid of demons for a very long time. Once there was a terrible outbreak like this and one of the members of the village they were in led an army to rid the demons and they did. The villager told us that we couldn't go talk to him because he didn't speak anymore, but we could find information in the museum.
We went to the museum, got some info, but it wasn't that helpful. Then we went to the guy who stopped it years ago and he really couldn't speak. He was like a vegetable. His wife took care of him and explained to us his situation that ever since he saved the world that long time ago he has been a vegetable.
The boy suddenly had some weird epiphany when I realized that he was actually the person who saved them years ago and that the guy was a vegetable now because he sealed a part of himself, which was the boy, into the demon world to make sure the demons don't try to open any portals.
With that information the boy decided that now we needed to get an army, so we went to this weird congress place that was in the sky...they were like judges in the sky looking down on everyone...O.o; And pleaded for help, but nobody would help.
Their problem was that they think that place deserved to be wrecked if the people were stupid enough to open the portal. We tried to explain why just because they did it doesn't mean everyone is guilty and swayed a few.
Then I woke up! :D
Gosh, explaining it is hard...I'm pretty sure that middle part where everything went crazy didn't happen like that...but it's so foggy now I'm not sure
Actually, I think I waited with my group in the temple-esque area because it was the end of our tunnel/cave and then we were found and those people died trying to flee. Also I remember being in a shower room for part of it...hrmmm...
I dunno...but I'm pretty sure I know where I got this dream...XD What influenced this dream...
I just recently watch Cloud Atlas, so the places were like in that movie
I watched something that was talking about Dark Souls
I watched Nostalgia Critic's Top 11 Dumbest moments from Lord of the Rings
The boy's name was Nao, so I'm pretty sure I was influenced by Alice Nine...XD
Yeppp...that's how it went. Sorry for the bad writing, I had to write it like that because I needed to focus more on what happened than the way I was writing it. I want to draw a picture of the characters now....specifically Nao...;3;
I'm at the toning and effects stage of drawing Idolling now...but I need to do the cover. I'll be posted 2 pages a day instead of 4 because there aren't that many pages. I think this chapter will have a lot of goodies at the end! :D
I got bored...so instead of working on Idolling...I played around with selfies 'n stuffs...:D
At first I was gonna do the Idolling main characters, but I couldn't do the male ones except for Ikuya...so I gave up and did Alice Nine~! :D
I've been watching old Alice Nine Channel videos and omgosh...so funny...;3;
Tora reminds me of my older brother...only 'cause they're both tall, both have dark hair, pale skin, and a deep voice and both are in a band and both play guitar and both of them seem menacing but aren't really...:D
Besides that they have nothing in common.
Hiroto's making me want to draw Hisoka like him...XD
He's much prettier than I imagine Hisoka...so maybe I should lean more toward him than some of the other people I was inspired by....'cause they're not particularly popular for their looks (that I know of).
Also, really random thing to talk about, but I will anyway! :D
Have you guys ever gotten a certain hairstyle based on the hairstyle of singer or person you liked of the opposite sex?
Looking up that pic of Hiroto I actually found a lot of pics of girls showing off their Hiroto-esque hairstyles...O.o; That's just odd to me...'cause...opposite sex, yo. There's a reason it looks good on them.
For me, most of the hair cuts I've gotten were from singers I liked, mostly Maki Goto like these:
There were more but I can't seem to find them....>3> But I definitely had the first one when I was little and first heard of Goto Maki and then I kept getting whatever short hair style she had next.
For a little while I wanted hair like this:
Then like this:
Then like this:
The hairstyle I want nowww...is too complicated for me to find a picture...XD It's not from an idol...it's like a cute layered hairstyle that's more square shaped than upside-down tear drop shape that most short hairstyles have.
Haiiirrrr....I like hairrr..
I'm getting my hair cut soon. Right now my hair is really long...;3;
About this length:
I'm not a fan of long hair...'orz I mean, it looks nice on other people, just not me. Not only that but it's really hot! No wonder I was always so cold! I always had short hair! XD
Okie-doke! Sorry for wasting your time! 'orz
It was craptastic!
I seriously loved that series to death (hoho), but right after the Undertaker arc it just fell flat. It was all chocked up with mystery at the beginning and then it told you everything really quickly and was formulaic at the end....or just after that arc.
I do not recommend this manga!
Go read you some Himitsu or something that is trustworthy! Actually, I'm pretty sure Himitsu Top Secret is still going...
I need to read some manga because when it comes to paneling on Idolling I am retarded.
Bokurano's some good stuff.
Blue Heaven is pretty nice, even though it's short.
So many alternatives to Deadman Wonderland. Don't get into it just because there is an anime of it.
Also don't get into it just because it's shocking with the violence and crazy serial killer characters 'cause in the end everyone's quite normal except for the bad guys. Therefore it's not fun anymore.
Actually, don't even watch the anime.
It's surprising how 180 I've turned on this manga. I really really loved it, it was my favourite manga, and then it just kept falling further and further...
The thing that bothers me about Deadman Wonderland is that you would think it would be focusing on the psychological mysteries of a serial killer or just make it so we actually care about the story and understand what these blood powers are, but they never really tell you and it's all very very shallow.
What pissed me off the most was that there was a point where each chapter was basically the same. They fight some impossibly powerful bad guys, almost die, then in the end they come back even stronger. This is very common in shounen, yes, but it just doesn't fit at all with the first part of the series.
The first part of the series it seemed definitely survival of the fittest or something. Barbaric and scary. That went away after the Undertakers Arc, I assume because they were trying to be like 'and everyone was much powerful after that'...which is pretteh stupid. How come Ganta is so strong?! Makes no sense...
I'm comparing it to a lot of seinen, which I probably shouldn't...it's barely seinen...'orz
But if you're interested, like I was at the age of 14 or so, in violence and mature manga....
READ BOKURANO! It's really powerful and haunting.
It feels like your typical shounen manga at first and you might be like me and already picking out who's the main character, the main girl, the best friend, the annoying guy, etc. But then you realize it's not that type of manga! XD
Blue Heaven is also very violent if you're looking for violence.
I really like this mangaka's work. The stories usually deal with serial killers or murderers but in more thoughtful way. Blue Heaven is one of his longer ones that I just found to be really interesting with the questions it presents. The style is quite rough, though. It might not appeal to everyone (though I don't really mind, as long as the art is good)
If you're looking for violence and good art read Berserk...but then again, I don't entirely recommend it because I think it might be offensive to some.
Himitsu Top Secret is also quite violent, but more in a solve the mystery kind of thing...sorta...It's not action-y like the others. Bokurano's not really that violent as in blood and gore, but it's mature.
Ikigami is quite good too
The art is really nice and it's very clean like Deadman Wonderland. Though...hrmm....
I'm trying to find the perfect alternative to Deadman Wonderland but it's really hard...'orz
Just look at any seinen manga! XD Most of the time they have violence like Deadman Wonderland.
For me, I just like reading books and manga where they focus on things that are difficult to agree with, controversial themes. I really like stories where they humanize a serial killer or show understanding for them. Not that I think they deserve it, but it's just interesting. I'd like my empathy skills ta be top tier! >:D
I should probably stop talking now....
Hehe....I never say 'lol'...even when I literally do laugh out loud...XD
A WIP of an Idolling page. This is on the second to last page. I was inking them and I stopped on this one 'cause...OMIGOSH! I never clothed Kyosuke! XD And where is his hand?!
I just thought this was funny...but I have to stop here and go draw him so clothing and then the last page...which is actually draw, but there is quite a large group pic which will take some hard thinking! >:-
And for those of you curious, that's what Krita looks like! :D It's actually not pink...I just like pink and decided to choose that colour scheme...XD
Oh gosh, and you can see the tabs I had open....oh wellzzzz...'orz
ADIOSS! Back ta workie dorkie~! :D
