So I got a lil something in the mail today...
Somethin from International Programs headquarters.....
Somethin that said I've officially been accepted to.......

     ....WASEDA!!!!!</U>

           ....which happens to be Japan's equivalent to HARVARD!!!!</U>

                .......... :iconexplodeplz: *explodes*


I didn't think I had a chance at getting into this program.
There are only 20 spots for the WHOLE state of California.
Fucking shit.
SHIT!
I don't think my mind's even fully processed it yet XD
I'll be studying there from this September until July. Dude.

:jawdrop:

Look at how beautiful it is o(≧∇≦ )o
(even though this pic is kinda shitty)


*daydreams*

:star: COMMISSIONS are open ^____^


I don't know why I always wait so long in between writing journals here XD
Is it because I have nothing interesting to say...? haha
I think I'm gonna start featuring artwork here or something,
gotta get some kind of use out of my subscription, right? :heart:


Anyways~
I'm working on that "naked" alice nine portrait series again,
only 2 more members to go (Hiroto and Nao) !!
I just fixed some nit-picky things that were bothering me on the first 3,
so sorry if you didn't really care to see them in your devwatch again XD
And then... Hiroto should be done in the next week or so, I hope~
SCHOOL ALWAYS GETS IN THE WAY and I never get to draw anymore ;__;


But, exciting news, I just turned in my application to study abroad in Tokyo this Fall ^______^
Hitting that "submit" button felt so damn good~~
I better get in, or I'll seriously cry for a month. Or more. Been planning this forever.......
If when I'm in Japan, I'll try and keep a fun blog or something :heart:  Lotsa pics and concert stories, I hope~ :heart::heart::heart:



PS. Thank you watchers, I love you to death
even if I'm hardly ever on here anymore ;____;

I think this one suits me much better >3<
Hope you like~~

OMG it's been months since I last updated ; 3;
Sorrryyy~~~ my inspiration (and skill?) have been...
MIA... all summer...
Let's just say... this summer's been one of the worst ever.....
Yeah.........

But I'm hoping to fix that soon! I'm close to finishing a Kamijo portrait that's been getting super dusty for months on my HD <3
It was supposed to be for my last kiriban..... *huddles in shame*
But that's a start, right?
I also want to finish up that nekkid alice nine series soon (Hiropon and Nao) but I've got to go back to Uni in a few weeks now T~T
Maybe my inspiration will come back to me once I've got back to LA though :heart:



PS. Anyone going to see Diru 11.29? I'll be at the LA show fo sho <3333
Can't wait for Glass Skin and OMG can't wait for Uroboros *__*

PPS. And now Mucc on 12.10?! I'll definitely be there too <33

:heart: Journal :heart:


:star: COMMISSIONS ar very open ^____^



:star: Looks like my 5,555 KIRIBAN is comin up reeeal soon ^____^

If you didn't know, a Kiriban happens when you hit a website at a certain number (in this case, you would be my 5,555th pageview!! or whoever is closest >.<;; )

So if you see that you hit that number (or are pretty close) take a screencap and send me a note and you win a Chibi/CG, of your choice!! (Mmm... within limits though... nothing TOO extravogent ^^; )

Wow O_o
Somehow nobody hit the kiriban (or claimed it anyways...)
That's never happened before...
Hmmm, well I guess I'll just set the next one up for 6,666 >:] Mwahaha



:star: Also, if you haven't heard already, I've decided to make a series of those alice nine portraits I've been doing lately ^_^
Once they're all finished, I'm gonna stick them together and mail them to alice nine (and then die of embarassment).
I hope they like them >__>
And get better soon, Tora!!!!

Oh, and I might decide to do other bands too (different themes of course) in the future~~ I'm open to suggestions :heart:



:star: OMG I wanted to cryyyy last night.... STILL do... because...........

VERSAILLES IS COMING TO AMERICA BUT THEY'RE ONLY GOING TO TEXAS WHICH IS WAAAAY TO FAR BECAUSE I DONT HAVE $300 FOR THE PLANE TICKET PLUS A LOT MORE FOR HOTEL AND STUFF AND I REALLY JUST WANNA MELT INTO A PUDDLE OF MISERY FOR IT RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I LOVE THEM SO MUCH AND I CAN'T GO SHOW THEM MY SUPPORT TT_______TT


:jawdrop::jawdrop::jawdrop::jawdrop::jawdrop::jawdrop::jawdrop:
OMGOMGOMG NEVERMIND WHAT I SAID!
VERSAILLES IS GONNA COME AND PLAY AT THE KNITTING FACTORY
IN HOLLYWOOD ON JUNE 3RD!!
I'M SOOO EXCITED TO SEE THEM~~
THANK YOU THANK YOU TAINTED REALITY/JRR/VERSAILLES/WHOEVER HELPED TO ADD THIS TOUR DATE!!

Commissions :3

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 14, 2008, 2:12 AM
:heart: Journal :heart:


Hmm... well I seem to be an extremely poor college student
needing some money to pay meh billz......

So I'm now opening up COMMISSIONS :heart:
I've done some commercial work before (illustrations, book covers, etc),
but other than that, this will be the first time I've tried it ^3^



First things first...

:heart: Prices :heart:
in USD

:star: Portrait
   Examples: [1] [2] [3]

:bulletred: 1 person (bust) ~ $25
:bulletred: more/full body ~ $5-10 depending on the request
:bulletred: additional people ~ $10 each
:bulletred: detailed background ~ $5-10 also depending


:star: Anime/Chibi
   Examples: [1] [2] [3]

:bulletred: 1 character (bust) ~ $15
:bulletred: more/full body ~ $2-5 depending on the request
:bulletred: additional characters ~ $5 each
:bulletred: detailed background ~ $5-10 also depending



:heart: The Commission Process :heart:

:bulletblue: First, you contact me~ either by note or by e-mail (azureskies89@gmail.com) is fine!
Just describe what you want, pictures are great too ^w^

:bulletblue: I'll get back to you on the price and we'll discuss what the final amount will be, how long it might take, and any other details.

:bulletblue: Then you pay me :3 (details below)

:bulletblue: Once I receive the payment, I will start the picture ^_^
I'll be happy to discuss the progress with you at each step as well, if you like~

:bulletblue: I will e-mail you the finished work at high-resolution, so you can print it out yourself,
OR I can print it for you and send it to your address (additional $3 shipping/handling required)



:heart: Payment :heart:

:bulletpurple: Paypal is preferred,
but I'll also accept concealed cash/check/money-orders as well ^3^



:heart: F.A.Q. :heart:

:bulletgreen: Can these prices be negotiated at all?
Sure, it really all just depends on your request ^3^

:bulletgreen: What WON'T you draw?
Hmm... I'm pretty open to most things... as long as it's not TOO graphic it should be okay :aww:

:bulletgreen: Can you send me the original?
I do all of my commissions digitally, so no, I can't give you the "original," but I can give you a very high resolution copy of it :D
As for mailing it to you, please see the Commission Process section above~

:bulletgreen: About how long will one of these take?
That depends on the request ^^;
But usually it will take a week or so, depending on how much other shit I have to get done >.<

:bulletgreen: Do I have the rights to use my picture however I want?
Well, you have the rights to use it as you want within certain limits. It may NOT be used for commercial purposes (i.e. using it for cafepress, articles like t-shirts, etc). IF you want to do that, I'll have to double the price.
Other uses like blog templates, desktop wallpapers, etc. are perfectly okay. Just make sure it's for personal use ONLY.


:star: If you have any other questions at all, feel free to note me and I'll get back to you ASAP :D

Thanks so much~ love you guys :heart:

IT'S 2008!!!!11

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 5, 2008, 6:28 PM
:heart: Journal :heart:


The end of 2007 was pretty terrible for me....
Mostly because my LAPTOP
and other certain precious objects were stolen from me T~T
And because I feel like I have no home
because I'm away at school,
my parents just got divorced --> 3 houses, 0 homes

It started to get better around New Years though,
as I worked out a new computer plan with my parents:
No presents from anyone, just money to put towards.....
My iMac!!!!!!!!
I got enough to pay for about 2/3 of it
so now I'm making payments on the rest
to my awesomebeautifulexcellent mom :aww::heart:
It's............ wonderfulll~~ *drools*

I just started my new classes for Winter Term,
ART (Studio: Drawing Fundamentals)
and ART (History: prehistoric up until A.D. basically)
and also Critical Thinking:Argumentation,
but that's just a stupid GE requirement >_>

I'M SOOOOO EXCITED TO TAKE ART CLASSES!!!!!!!!
I haven't taken one since I was in 6th grade T~T
I wanna improooove!
I'm not satisfied with my artwork as it is right now.............

SO! I got a copy of Painter X from my old 3D Animation teacher
when I was back in Sand Diego for Xmas,
(you should check out his devart page
if you like comics/photography :aww: :iconmindwinder: )

I decided to test it out by making a portrait of SHOU from アリス九號 :heart:

... >.>/  psssstt... >.>  <.<  he's nekkid :O





....
but it cuts off at his chest XDDD
PERV~~ bet you got a pretty good image in your head, mwahahaha >:DD


So anyways, look forward to that in a couple days...? Maybe sooner...?
Ahhhh I've rambled waaay too long DX

So everybody, hope you had a spectacular 007
and I hope 2008 will be OH SO MUCH BETTER :heart::heart::heart:

Thank you, watchers, as always~~!
I love you more than you know ^3^

LAPTOP....... STOLEN........ *death*

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 9, 2007, 11:21 PM
:heart: Journal :heart:


WOOOOW............ did I have one HELL of a weekend.

I wanted to have some fun in LA before I headed back to San Diego for Xms break,
so I went to Little Tokyo for karaoke with some friends, then dinner....
followed by....

Meeting up with tons of friends from Jrock events (etc.) at Judo Chop! where we saw some pretty good bands play~
Thee Out Mods were particularly awesome :heart:
And I don't even like female vocalists o_O

After that, we got some late-night chinese food and kcked back at a friend's house.
After some... *coughalotcough* of Vodka, I called a certain person...
...said something I've been keeping inside.....................
......... and that's all you get to hear about that >0<




ANYWAYS! When I got back to my dorm it was really dark and I wasn't really paying attention to anything....
I crashed instantly...
Slept for a few hours.....
Got woken up by a horrrrribly horrible hangover..............



AND THEN I REALIZED MY LAPTOP WAS NOT ON MY DESK!!!!!!!!
My roommate woke up... (I was crying and running around and slamming doors hysterically)
... and realized her aptop was gone too!!
Not just that but her iPod, cell phone, wallet and some jewelry!!
And MY jewelry too!!!

My whole LIFE was on that laptop......
My IRREPLACABLE pictures.....
My IRREPLACABLE artwork.........
AHHHHHHHHHHHH   T________T

My roomie was there the WHOLE NIGHT!!
Some other housemates were having a party with a bunch of people we don't know....
Nobody knows what happened though apparantly.....
All we DO know is that it was stolen WHILE MY ROOMMATE WAS SLEEPING INSIDE OUR ROOM!!!!!!!

TELL ME WHO THE FUCK WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT?!!


I cried ALL day and we filed a police report and everything,
but I fucking KNOW I'm not getting my stuff back........
I'm seriously going to DIE

I have no computer and DEFINITELY no money to buy another one.....

.......


*death*

Hey there, my lovely watchers :3

It's been a while since I've updated, huh... T-T
I've got a couple things going right now, so stay tuned!! LOL
Hints... um... twins? Sexy ones? hahaha XD
And then I'm still working on :iconlilmisattitood:'s Aoi kiriban present thingy... *dies*
So... yeah ^^;


Real-life stuff...
I just started college at Calstate LA a couple weeks ago!
The move up to LA was pretty tough...
I miss my friends soooo much!!!!!
And it's so hard to make new friends in college classes
because they're all lecturing!! DX

Does anyone else live in LA? Wanna be friends? :3
I haven't really gone anywhere yet either...
I wanna hit up Little Tokyo, the Fashion District, Korea Town, ...
you know, all those places~
I just don't have anyone to go with me so I'm sad T___T   
*eats ice cream*

Also, is anyone going to Pacific Media Expo?
I was thinking about going, but I'm not too sure yet.
I've never gone before, so... I don't wanna go alone...


One thing that does make me really happy though
is alice nine's new single, "Tsubasa." !!!!
The previews on the site were amazing enough,
but then the PV for the title track came out and.....
:jawdrop: I can't even describe how beautiful the song is.
They've improved soooo much~
Shou sounds amazing, the composition is gorgeous, Tora's guitar kicks ass....
I'm dying for this single.
alice nine is definitely still my favorite VK band ^_____^

Kiriban and my new Tattoo~ :D

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 27, 2007, 7:01 PM
I'm so very pleased to announce that :iconlilmisattitood: has won the kiriban for #3,333! First one ever XD
She asked me to do Aoi from Gazette, so look forward to that sometime soon ^___^

I think I'll set the next kiriban to be for 4,444~ why not keep a pattern going? :D

~*~


OMG I got my first tattoo!!!!!

I've been wanting it (and had it all drawn out and planned) for about 6 months, but I finally got it ^_____^

Here's a pic of it:



It says "hika rakuyou" which is an expression (yojijukugo) that means "blossoms fall and leaves scatter."

I take it to mean that life is impermanent and will always be changing...
Let's just say it was a reeeeeeally good time for me to get this specific tattoo in my life DX

Anyways, I love it (even more so because I designed it, so it's more personal).

~*~

Last but CERTAINLY not least, I wanna say THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH to all of my watchers/supporters!!!! You guys mean so much to me, and really make me want to improve and keep making more and more artwork!!

:hug: <--all around

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 31, 2007, 3:37 PM
Wah~~ It's been soooo long since I've written here!! Or even done anything on DA, actually T^T *cries*
But I'm getting back into it!! Seriously!!


~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Before I forget to mention it...
I'm doing a KIRIBAN at 3,333!!!!!

If you didn't know, a Kiriban happens when you hit a website at a certain number (in this case, you would be my 3,333th pageview!! or whoever is closest >.<)

So if you see that you hit that number (or are pretty close) take a screencap and send me a note and you win a Chibi/CG, of your choice!!


~*~*~*~*~*~*~


So much has happened in the last couple months................

Jrock Revolution... OMFG best week of my life O__O
Nothing like sleeping on a dirty LA sidewalk for 3 days... then rockin out to 7 of my favorite bands EVER....
Meeting some of the most awesome people ever!! Like :iconsabotenn: !! Heehee :heart:
And getting interviewed by a bunch of TV stations and by the DVD crew!! (J Rock: Artist Feed)
And seeing Miyavi drive up and show off in a red convertible!!!!!!
yeah..... I can die happy for sure.

And then there were 2 back-to-back Dir en grey concerts (again XD ) and my College Orientation and Registration!!!
Words can't even describe that whole week...
At the first Diru show(San Diego), we got in line really early in the day (as usual) and I totally walked right past Toshiya ^_^
Then we got front row... and during IIId Empire, Toshiya jumped off the stage right in front of me and let us touch/fondle/molest him for like a minute @___@
Then Toshiya and Die did a meet&greet and Toshiya totally remembered us and signed our tickets (we had nothing else -__-) !!!!!!!
OMG amazing.
Right after the show, basically, I drove up to LA f or my Orientation.
I was dead tired, but the excitement kept me going all day. It was a lot of fun!! The campus is spectacular and I met some cool people~ I can't wait to leave in September!!
That night...........
The 2nd Diru concert (LA) was craaaazy too! We accidentally ran into the people we met at the San Diego show and rocked out again XD I was kinda surprised at how hard I was still rocking out on... um.... 48 hours without sleep o_O
But anyways, this time KYO did the meet&greet and signed my purse!!

FOLLOWING those awesome shows (the next day XD ) was ANIME EXPO!!
The first day was the S.K.I.N live and OMGGGG it was amazing @__@
It ran 2 hours late, so we ended up standing in line for around 4 hours with NO SHADE and NO WATER/FOOD waiting to get into the arena.
When I walked in, I randomly bumped into my buddy Noah, who I met at a Jrock concert afterparty and keep seeing at all the shows ^_^
But ANYways... the concert was soooooooo worth the wait!!
I cried when they did an instrumental mid-show.... dude Yoshiki on piano (duet w/ Gackt!!) and Sugizo on violin........... Miyavi plucking the shamisen... HOLY S***

The rest of Anime Expo kinda pales in comparison.... except for Saturday because of the Copic Marker workshop!!!
We basically got to mess around with the markers and chat (didn't even really bother listening to the panelist... in fact, we got "Shhhed" by her because we were chatting so loud XD )
Anyways... I met :iconkathy100: (who is really awesome... I totally love her art ^_^) and some other cool people not on DA. There was a group of friends/sisters that were only around 13 or 14 years old and they were already so good!! Crazy... it was really fun just sketching and talking to other artists about anime and what we love to do most~ I hope I see you guys again someday!!
You can see the sketches I did at the workshop right here if you want!!

As if the summer couldn't get any better...... HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS!!!! (And the Order of the Phoenix movie!)
I went to both midnight premieres with a few friends and they were totally a blast
I though the movie was amazing... definitely the best one yet!
They cut out all the right things and the cinematography and script and direction were all  astounding @___@
When everyone got in line before midnight for the book premiere (there were almost 1000 people DX ) we totally started up a chant of the "Weasley is Our King" song from OotP!! Hehehehe... good times XD
I was 117th in line, so when the first few people were walking out of the store past us with their books, we covered our ears and started shouting at them not to say anything >__<
I was shaking when I finally got my hands on my book!
And then I barely took any breaks from reading it within the next 2 days..... then i finished it. It was an emotional rollercoaster OMG. I won't put any spoilers, but DAMN, I cried so much and laughed and just..... wow. JKR is my hero T^T

Haha.... I finished reading book 7 before the sun came up on Monday.... about 2 hours before I had to leave to drive up to Six Flags Magic Mountain with a bunch of my friends!! I was dead tired... to the point that I actually got really sick at the end of the day.... but it was still completely awesome. It couldn't have waited because one of my best friends was leaving for Washington the next day T_T
I looooove rollercoasters....

And then COMIC-CON!!
I got free passes again this year because of my awesome teacher (who gets a bunch because he's a Pro Comic book Artist!!) yeah.... he's pretty much awesome... and really talented!! Go check out his gallery right here~ :iconmindwinder:
IMHO, Comic-con is nowhere near as fun as Anime-Expo... probably cuz I'm not into comics at all ^^; but it was still AWESOME!! I got to see a bunch of cool Pixar stuff and sneak previews of a bunch of movies coming out next year!! The exhibit hall had some cool LotR, Star Wars, and Harry Potter statues in it... awesome awesome~
And I took pictures with my new camera!!
I've only had it about a week and I'm already in love :heart:
The Canon Powershot G7..... I named it Nana (#7 in Japanese, also one of my favorite manga EVER!).


~*~


So...................... that's basically been my SUMMER!!
I've barely had a day's rest with everything that's been going on...
I've got 2 comissions for book covers to do, a few sketches for a few friends, not to mention my own artwork I've been doing on and off for months.... arrrrgh. There really should be more time in a day!!

It seems like this was more of a personal diary entry than a journal/blog... but whatever XD
I don't know if anyone actually read this whole journal.... I think I wrote more than enough to make up for the 2 month gap since my last entry >_>
But if you did, I love you. And even if you didn't, I STILL  love you :heart:
Thank you x infinity, my dear dear watchers and friends. You're the best!!!!!

OMG it has been so long since I've posted any artwork up here T^T
I have like 3 pieces that are in the works right now, but I have a lotta shit going on with school at the moment... no time >.<

But I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of my watchers and to all of you people who comment on my art! I really appreciate it :heart::hug:

For now, I'm gonna leave you with a little work in progress on a painting I'm about 75% done with... I'm hoping to have it done sometime soon :aww:
Feel free to tell me what you think so far... *nudgenudge* ;)
...But keep in mind this is in noooo way even close to being done. Ignore the temp BG, it's supposed to be sand and the ocean... but I haven't painted those parts yet :O

I can seriously die happy now. This morning, I woke up to check my e-mail, still half-asleep. I saw that I had 2 messages, both blog subscription notifications from myspace (1 from Yoshiki, the other from JRock Revolution). I lost more and more coherency as I read the posts. I was reading that OMG- MOST of my FAVORITE bands would be playing in LA, a mere 2 hours away, in a little over a month, in a festival named the "Jrock Revolution Tour!!!!!!!!!" 2 days, May 25-25th at the Wiltern Theater.

I think I woke up everyone in my house from the huge scream I let out once I saw a list of the bands participating up there. I absolutely WILL NOT miss these shows. Even if the tickets sell out before I can get them on ticketmaster (which I will be stalking, come April 21st for presale tix), I will pay obscene amounts of money to buy the damn tickets on ebay. Yoshiki and all of the other people setting this up---- you have made me one of the happiest people on earth right now. THANK YOU :heart:

This journal is my first attempt at writing any kind of code... and it looks a little scrappy, but I'm proud of it :aww:
I thought CSS would be much harder than it actually was, though. Coolness.

OMG break is almost over. Time flies when you're having fun I guess... like my lil piggies XDDD
I'm like halfway done with the pic I'm entering over at :iconclubbishie:... I hope I can finish it in time ^^;

Hope you all had a good holiday... and have a happy new year!!

*edit*
Ok, thought of an idea with my friend! Here's your hint: it's a sleepover... with strip poker... and ciggies... and alcohol... and all your favorite jrockers *o*
Like... 13 of them to be exact XDDD
