I Hereby Dub Thee... "Fluffy"!

About a week ago, and because I keep forgetting to post this, my nephew asked for some help with his bulletin board design. He drew the Nativity Scene from reference, but had some trouble with drawing the sheep because he didn’t think it was cute enough.

Nephew likes cute things. What.

So he asked me to draw a cute sheep for him, this is what I came up with:

It’s amazing how round things make for a general approval for the term “cute”. You can still see the pencil marks since I was lazy in cleaning this up. It made me realize how slow I am with conceptualizing and executing, since Fluffy took me 30 minutes to do.

There was something funny about the pen my nephew lent me to ink with though…

The pen says “Dark Black”.


I suppose “Light Black” is how they label grays nowadays?

Ping Pong is spelled as Xin-Xue Feng

I was watching Ellen today and when I saw this, I had to watch it again on Ellen's site and show it to my mom because... Well... Watch it:

I mean. Oh. Em. Gee. Xin-Xue Feng is only 7-years-old and she can beat one of the top 10 ping pong players in the USA(?) no problem.

If she's a representation of China's latest generation, we're all doomed.

You gotta admit though, Xin-Xue is so cute!!! x3 I wish I could meet her... but then again, what can I really tell her? I'm not that good with Mandarin, haha... She'd probably laugh at me too, but dear gracious...

So. Much. Cute.

Right Brain vs Left Brain Creativity Test

I took a test to see which side of my brain is dominant or if they're equal from the Art Institute of Vancouver. Most people in the official are equal in their brainy endeavours, but I got a pretty significant difference.

What is all means? I have no idea... :D But it's really surprising that both verbal and nonverbal are my least dominant traits.

Does this mean I can't communicate at all? o_o;;; Huh...

Left Brain 44%
Right Brain 56%

You are more right-brained than left-brained. The right side of your brain controls the left side of your body. In addition to being known as right-brained, you are also known as a creative thinker who uses feeling and intuition to gather information. You retain this information through the use of images and patterns. You are able to visualize the "whole" picture first, and then work backwards to put the pieces together to create the "whole" picture. Your thought process can appear quite illogical and meandering. The problem-solving techniques that you use involve free association, which is often very innovative and creative. The routes taken to arrive at your conclusions are completely opposite to what a left-brained person would be accustomed. You probably find it easy to express yourself using art, dance, or music. Some occupations usually held by a right-brained person are forest ranger, athlete, beautician, actor/actress, craftsman, and artist.

Your complete evaluation follows below:

Your left brain/right brain percentage was calculated by combining the individual scores of each half's sub-categories. They are as follows:

Your Left Brain Percentages

42% Symbolic (Your most dominant characteristic)
37% Linear
22% Sequential
20% Reality-based
17% Logical
14% Verbal (Your least dominant characteristic)

Your Right Brain Percentages

55% Concrete (Your most dominant characteristic)
36% Fantasy-oriented
34% Random
30% Holistic
20% Intuitive
13% Nonverbal (Your least dominant characteristic)

DBSK - Jae Joong & Yoochun Colors: Melody and Harmony

Maybe I should turn my personal blog into a music one? *claps*

Melody and Harmony is a song about love... It shows that people need each other to survive, and that he is really thankful to have found someone like her that his life is no longer a lonely one.

Right now, somewhere, someone
is in pain, all alone
Passing through a sleepless night
Until the light shines on your heart
Let’s nestle close together, so that we could sleep
Like a melody and harmony in love

Translations from DBSK - Cassiopeia !!

I have such an array of music in my playlist now that I have no idea how to classify them. Darn you Channel V! Now I'm so addicted to Asian Pop again!

Not that I'm really complaining... So happy I found Channel V on my cable~! ♥

Super Junior M: Super Girl

I think I'm addicted to watching Channel V.

If I remember correctly, Super Junior M is actually a Korean group, but this is a Chinese single... Mandarin to be exact. I love how he's telling the girl he loves not to believe in her lover's lies and how he promises that he will take care of her if she leaves him.

开心地 难过地
答应你 都陪你 都陪你
准备了 全世界最好的爱 最贵的爱

Lyrics from ♥ KPOP JJANG 짱

Gotta love the beat of this... I think I need to refresh my playlist and start looking for new tracks like this. ♥

The Doujinshi Project

onegai my melody - hiiragi keiichiI've been busy working on this doujin for quite some time now... too much time actually, that I'm beginning to grow tired of it, haha~!

"Mote-Mote", which translates to "Ladies' Man", is a doujinshi from the series "Onegai My Melody". It's my first doujin that I want to publish on my webmanga some time before the year ends. If I successfully do not slack off, this will by my first finished doujin!

I have a doujin about Kurama and my original character "Kasumei" from way back in high school, but the pages were all drawn in a tiny notebook, and I never really got to know how the story ended. Kinda lame isn't it? Though I've been thinking about working on it again.

It's probably not the smartest idea to create a doujin about a little known series, but Onegai My Melody has been an addiction of mine for more than a year. The episodes are filled with nonsense that make my day brighter, no matter how badly some things have turned out. This is also my way of trying to find my way back into the love of making manga since my passion has wavered as of late.

...trying to find my way back into- isn't that a song?

Anyway, I hope people will support me on this and not kill me for slacking off on A.illusions again! It's just been so hard lately... I hope this will be the answer and cure that I'm looking for!

Arashi: Love So Sweet

I've been ignoring my blog a lot lately... so sorry about that, but I did find something I'd like to share today.

I saw this on Channel V Asia. They were featuring the Japanese group "Arashi" and this song really caught my attention. Maybe it was also because the MTV was so adorable?

The lyrics talks about falling in love... a love so sweet that they will never find anyone else who can surpass this feeling. The chorus is something like this:

I’ll never, ever forget this sky in my memories, even if we’re apart
There’ll never be another season when I meet someone I love so much
Shine brighter, my fairest lady, this love is sure to softly reach you
Believing is everything, love so sweet.

Translations from Kiwi Musume

Cute, isn't it? It's also the soundtrack of Hana Yori Dango Season 2. It makes me want to check that series out. ♥
