Just a girl who loves animation and video games.

Drawing is my passion and the many characters I love influence me the strongest~

I'm not often idle, and I like to learn and develop new skills and techniques; something drawing has taught me time and time again!

Thank you for stopping by!
Interests
Recently, I picked up an art book titled 'Framed Ink: Drawing and Composition for Visual Storytellers'. The phenomenal artist Jo Chen had recommended it, so I instantly followed up in checking it out. I am not normally a fan of 'how to' books on drawing or those methods of teaching, but this book is truly remarkable. As the name of the title suggests, it focuses on how to make your storytelling and characters have more presence and be more effective with communicating your ideas through visuals. The author, Marcos Mateu-Mestre, has more than twenty years of experience in working with animated movies. While he does makes tons of references to filmography and cinematography, I think very similar aspects apply to illustration and comics, in terms of composition and other visual factors. I highly recommend, regardless of skill level. It goes through the foundations and also has areas that focus on honing those skills.

I was also at AnimeNext this weekend with friends, and I had a blast. I cosplayed Gasai Yuno in her black dress from Mirai Nikki, and got asked by many for photos, heh :XD: I also had the pleasure of meeting voice actor Matthew Mercer. Matt voices Captain Levi in Attack on Titan, as well as Fei Long in the Street Fighter IV series. He's a very sweet, funny, and enthusiastic guy, plus he's SO cute :love: He signed some of my Street Fighter and SnK goodies for me :)

I really needed a weekend of pure fun and positivity, so I'm feeling very happy and upbeat, now :D
