Forget me…. not….

Since I am now waiting for a proof copy of the Kingdom Hearts fanbook I can finally reveal this!

This is a picture that ended up not being in the book (it was replaced last minute by another that I liked better). It’s Xion from Kingdom Hearts. I love how she collected seashells for Roxas while he was asleep. She’s freakin’ precious~

The flower in her hair is a forget me not and I think it describes her character very nicely. She has to be one of the most tragic characters. An identity crisis (and one as bad as hers) is the worst.

This was done in Sai, all on one layer. More fanbook reveals to come soon! Enjoy!

Sketchy thing of precious baby Sho-chan from Haikyuu! because he’s just freakin’ precious as hell. The score keepers in the first episode were also so precious I was just losing it.

The ending was hella funny: “I will get my revenge!” 

Me: “Nope!” Lol.

Hello everyone! April 1st has come and gone so now I’m hard at work. There isn’t much to say really other than we’re almost there! I’m putting together the book as we speak and I must say that it is looking pretty damn good. I got a lot of amazing pieces. I’m excited to see it all put together! Thanks to all those who contributed a piece (or 2) to the book! In the end 21 artists were able to produce something in time. I posted the final artist list if you’re interested in seeing (sorry about the weird size differences).
I learned a lot of things during this experience and I’m glad for it. I hope it helps the next time I attempt something like this. I’m sure I’ll learn even more when this project is completely over and I can’t wait to see how all our hard work paid off~
Stay tuned for more information. I’m super excited this is all coming together. I’m itching to post an actual picture for you, but I’ll keep it a secret until I have a preview of the book. For now have a paopu fruit and share it with a loved one :)
I have nothing more to say other than, THANK YOU! Thank you for putting up with me XD

Updated! 

Guys! My custom stickers came in! I’m super surprised how well they turned out considering I used Vistaprint for my services (formatting is so hard with them).

Overall I’m pleased! They’re bigger than I thought too. I’m not sure how well they peel off since I haven’t found a good notebook to put these on yet.  I’m still debating whether or not I should sell because I wasn’t sure how these would turn out, but I feel they’re worth it! That’ll be later though :)

I can’t wait to put these on everything lol!

More paopu! Sorry I’ve been only showing wips and previews. Real life has been stopping me from drawing anything for fun. 

Can you believe that this is the last full week of March? One more week until the deadline and I start working for real to get the book ready! Thanks to those who have turned in your submissions already! I haven’t had any real problems, but please remember to follow the guidelines or I can’t accept your submission! 

The big date is APRIL 1stSoon you guys won’t have to hear me say this anymore lol. PLEASE let me know if you can’t make it or need an extension before then. I’m trying my best to put this together. All I ask is for your cooperation and participation. Thanks!

See you next week! 

One more week!

thekingdom7:

Hello everyone! How are you? 

I know this blog has been quiet. It’s because we’re all working hard to finish our submissions on time, right artists? I’ve gotten a few already which is making me feel a lot better lol. I can’t believe the deadline is almost here! 

Artists: you have 2 MORE WEEKS to finish up your pictures! Deadline is April 1st! 2 weeks go by in a blink of an eye these days so I hope you’re managing your time wisely. 

I’ll update here again April 1st! I’ll also be sending out a group email around that time too. Be aware: If you don’t turn in your submission by April 1st you will no longer be in the book so you won’t get the email.  

Happy drawing! 

Updated to show that we’re still alive lol. 

Hello! I just saw your Xion (Kingdom Hearts) fanart, and I just wanted to tell you how fantastic it was. I've never seen this style before, and I really, really like it! I also thought I'd introduce myself to you as a fellow pianist and huge Kingdom Hearts fan--good to meet you!

Wow! Good to meet you too! And thank you! I wanted to try something different and I can’t wait to reveal it~

The sad part about Xion is that out of all the characters in Kingdom Hearts she really is the only one that was never supposed to exist. How sad is that? 

I finally reached 200 followers on tumblr! Don’t know where you guys came from, but THANK YOU! Still working hard on the artbook. I finished my two main submissions, but now I’m working on filler pieces. Hopefully I don’t have to draw too many;;;;
