Howdy peeps!

Some of you may remember the time back in .. ages ago when I arrived 3rd place with To Sail a Moon in the Manga Jiman 2010 competition.

Some of you may also remember the time when the opening pages of Invidia arrived 3rd place in the Manga Jiman 2012 competition.

So now here's a new thing to remember:
My new short comic Oh Crumbs! has arrived 1st place in the Manga Jiman 2013 competition XD

And the prize for 1st place? Is a plane ticket to Japan! Yesssss XD

At last, third time lucky, I've won :> The judges were rather moved by my efforts over the years, and definitely with each entry there was obvious improvement - a few tears were shed when one of the judges was reading out why Oh Crumbs! won, which was Q_Q very moving Q_Q 

But ahhhh, it was a great time at the ceremony XD So many peeps kept coming up to me before the results were announced, saying how much they loved my comic and in the end I only managed to read three of the eleven comics exhibited there XD And then after the results were announced, peeps were queuing to talk to me @_@ it was all so strange, I'm not used to talking to people XD Still, it was a great time there, and the sushi was really nice :> Wish I could have eaten more, I hadn't really eaten much that day. Or slept. University work has been really pressing.

Speaking of university, I still have two more assignments to get through, and after they're done, I'll post up Oh Crumbs! I hope you look forward to it :> Oh gosh I'm soooo looking forward to finishing university =_= I have a lot of plans afterwards - wrote a list and everything. I am going to be such a busy person XD 

Anyways see you later!

I hope to work on some new things later this year, which means that some new Invidia-ish stuff might be popping up :> No promises though, I've still got university to get through XD

Welcome to my specialist list of inspirational artist! You are fabulous and I really like your OC Lucifer. Him and my OC Will would get along just peachy! Anywho, any tips for a struggling digital artist? I have programs and a tablet to use, but I just can't seem to get my art to fit the glamorous life of the digital spectrum. Could you help this clueless artist find her way?

Hello :> Haha I'm flattered to be part of that list of yours :> To get better at digital art... there's no easy way to go about it :B It takes time to settle into something, and so sometimes you won't see results until a few months later. However I wouldn't say 'Just give it a few months and you'll be fine' - make those few months count, look at new techniques, see how other peeps manage stuff, look at comics/cartoons you really like, see if you can figure out their methods. Analyse things that interest you and try it yourself, then one day you might come across something that speaks your arty language. I made a sort of tutorial/WIP thing a while ago, maybe that might help get you started :>

It's a long journey that most artists, me included, go through. I'm still walking it XD Good luck with your journey :>

I love your drawing style! Actually looking from the comment below, I think it's no biggie about having similar style. Endling is one of my fav artist and I always hoped I can draw like him xD

I just found out about you and I already see people telling you that your work is looking like Endling. 

Please pay them no mind. I don't see it as a /bad/ thing. It still looks different. 

I draw A LOT of inspiration from Him as well and my sketchbook looks more like his work everyday. It just resonates with me so well.

That aside AWESOME STUFF!!!! I actually just found out about you last night from Endling's Tumblr haha!

Haha thanks XD

Yeahhh I get the odd comment about my stuff looking like Endling, but neither he nor I consider it a problem =/ I mean. You found me via him XD What more is there to say? I think most of the comments are more observations than accusations, still if peeps have a problem because they fear that I'm not being as original as I can be - read my comics. There's nothing to fear XD Everything is just tickety boo :>

Well. As tickety boo as morbidity allows. HAH XD
