It's my (little) brother's birthday today. Yay for nice food~
I used to be like that, but now I adapt astoundingly fast. I shock myself. I'd go to a new country, but nothing would feel new or strange. It'd feel like I've been living there for years. *Shrugs*
(>_< )(._.; ) There, there. Blood is natural.
Really? Good to know.
Ah, then, thank you(?). Or should I say I'm honored? You know what, I'll go with my usual, awkward, seemingly arrogant response: Ah, I see.
Fantastic? No, no. (When I disagree with someone's compliment, then I just seem... well, I'm not sure, but it's definitely not good.)
Creepy? Really? Show me...
Indeed. He's useless, whiny, and annoying. I hate whiny people characters.
LOL. Not a chance. You don't know him at all. (You really don't. o_o;) I suspect he'd respond like this: "Really? O_o I never knew that." And he may talk a little about it for some time, but that'd be the end of it. My dad is paranoid and scared.
*Faceplam* I explained my family, but you don't know how he's my half-brother? Or do just not know what a half-sibling is? If that's the case, a half-sibling is a sibling you only share one parent with. In my case, me and my lil bro only have a father in common.
No, he's just really possessive. He sees children as something he "owns" or something that "belongs" to him. Because of that, he thinks he's above me. That pisses me off to no end. He thinks I owe him my whole life because he took care of me, gave me a home, etc. Yeah, that's true. He did. But he's also responsible for the one thing I hate the most. Possibly the one thing I'll never be able to get rid of.
*Slaps you and shakes you* You'd waste a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity on something like a room full of Shoujo manga?!? Seriously?!
Mine? Well... I remember when my dad asked the whole family what the one thing we'd really like/want was a year or more ago. I didn't answer because I was too embarrassed, so I just said,"I don't know." At the time, my wish was "to find true love". *Mega facepalm* Not too long ago, though, my wish was "to have never come into existence". There was another wish I wanted to make, but I feared I was being too presumptuous. Now, however, I feel my old wish is too selfish, and I'd make my presumptuous wish. My reasoning is, "You can't want what you don't know." So now, if I was given the chance, I'd wish that humanity never came into existence.
Yes, if you want to...
No! If anyone, the heroine would wear glasses! But who could possibly still need glasses in the 22nd century??
Can you see it as a webtoon, you mean? (Not really sure what you want to see... ;;)
So you didn't. (-_-)... Here... [Owl video]
What about the story, yo?!
No, it wasn't about you. I only had one dream about you, and that was you rating Kubera chapters lowly. ~_~; The dream was long, so I'll only mention the major points:
Speaking of dark-ish dreams, I dreamed I killed someone yesterday. It was the first time I ever dreamed something like that, oddly enough, considering my messed-up mind. He [the person I killed] was a serial murderer, so don't get all "O_o" on me. And I wasn't me, I was an adult, male policeman trying to save the guy's next victim... if that makes any sense.
*Clears throat* Anyway... I love dreams! The weirder, the better!

Wow. I wish I could draw so that I can create manga like you. I really envy my two brothers who can draw pretty well. =_= Sugoi. It seems that your story is interesting.~
Why? You didn't like its story line? Reimei no Arcana has sometimes its boring chapters though, but I want to see how it ends.~ Haha, yea. I will marathon some tonight. XD
MsChii | 11-29-13, 7:36 AM
Game Over? Is it short? I grew tired of reading long chapters of manga. It will make me want to sleep especially if it is boring. =_= You're creating your own manga?! Cool! :3 May I know the plot of it?
I'm currently reading Reimei no Arcana, a fantasy-romance genre. I really need to catch up with this season's anime lineup. T_T I have so many titles in my PTW list. Gonna do anime marathon over the weekend.~
MsChii | 11-29-13, 7:06 AM
I'm fine! Thanks. :3 Been away in MAL for two months, I think. So gotta catch up again. So what are you enjoying right now?
MsChii | 11-28-13, 8:26 PM
How are you?
NomenHicInserto | 11-27-13, 11:49 AM
I'm having many conversations, but ours is the one I look forward to most. I really feel drained if I sign in after 4 days, and there's no reply from you. ><; Well, there is another person, but he seldom replies, and we have deep conversations as opposed to fun/lighthearted ones (like you and I do).
No, the weekends were always Thursday and Friday until this May. Not every country has Sat and Sun for their weekends. In Israel, it's (also) Friday and Saturday. I was pretty surprised by the weekends when I first came to the Middle East.
Yes, I have two brothers. My older brother is 20 (He's turning 21 in Feb, too), and my younger is 9, and is turning 10 in a few days. My younger brother is my half-brother.
So close to what my mom said. She said something like she doesn't like to see people suffer with blood. Like a cut, or some wound, or anything that hurts when the blood is there.
*Runs away from you*
You know, when people see my drawings and they say, "Wow, you're so talented!" I usually get upset. I'm not sure why, but I get upset. And if they insist I'm talented, then I get kind of angry. This is not the case with you, however, but I still strongly disagree that I'm talented. Maybe the reason I get upset is because I know I put a lot of effort and hard work into becoming "good", so when people just "blame" it on talent, it's like they're disregarding all the work I did. I think people who work hard at something deserve praise; those who are "talented" don't, since what they're doing is nothing to them. Maybe that's why I was so angry at talented people in the past – because people always praised them for something that came so easily to them. My dad once insisted I was talented on drawing just because he's not that good. I was really angry. He didn't even know how hard I worked when I was younger, and how many times I want to give up when I don't see improvement. Maybe this can help you understand my feelings about talent and the like.
It's a fluke. I actually suck at hands, too. Sometimes I get "in the zone" and something nice actually comes out. Like I said, a fluke.
Body-less face. Lmao. xD
*Smacks you on the arm* Don't say things like that with such a straight face! And even with a shrug, no less!
...Actually, that line made me laugh. x'D (Poor Kyon...)
I don't get offended. (<-- Such arrogance!) Okay, most of the time. I disagree that my life is like a Shoujo manga, nor am I anything like a Shoujo heroine.
Half-brother = little brother. Ah, that's because of my dad. He'll blow a gasket if I tell him, or even say "he's my half-brother" to someone else. Some people are just sensitive about weird things.
I see. Thanks for telling me about your family. I'd never have the choice to pick a parent. My dad's too possessive and abusive for that.
Although this is completely unrelated, I was wondering if you could have any one wish granted, what would you wish for? Literally anything.
Hurry up? Ta-da~
I've finally drawn Blaze! He turned out quite nice (to my surprise). There's no guarantee he'll look the same next time I draw him, though. >_>; And I may edit his design a little just like I did with Rachel... which speaking of, I didn't show you~ On top of that, I've finished writing chapter one's manuscript! Though I know I'll most probably revise it when I write the rest of the chapters. Rewind is starting to seem like it'll only be 5-10 chapters long. And since I couldn't resist, I drafted the first few pages of chapter 1. Using webtoon-style panels without making it a webtoon is hard, so I may just make it one. ("Noooo!")
Also, I hope you don't mind me showing you this stuff... It's just that— Yeah, never mind... (._.;)
Yep, yep. That's right! I look forward to working with you. ^^
So you want me to feel awkward? (_ _;)
By the way...
Did you read The Time Paradox? ("No!")
Did you watch the cute owl video? ("No!")
P.S. I had a weird dream today (not that I don't always have weird dreams). I would tell you about it, but it's long – even more so when I type it out. ~_~; I love dreams. <3 I love it when they're weird, on top of that. <3
NomenHicInserto | 11-22-13, 12:03 PM
The weekend is coming up for you... Weekends here are Friday and Saturday. Before May, though, it was Thursday and Friday. To change the weekends is weird, right?
The way you say it, it sounds like you'll die from drawing. ;;
Definitely not going to be any mushy romance in there... I think. Wait, what qualifies as "mushy"? (You: Idiot! *Whacks*) ~_~;; Holding hands and stuff? Like this? (Please ignore my really awful strokes. The tablet is so...out of my control. x_x)
Dark? Don't know about that. I don't know my own creation, it seems. Pathetic, aren't I? e_e;
The artwork is clean, but the manga itself isn't polished. Does that make sense?
Then SmackJeeves it was.
Really? That makes two of us. I'm one to complain (not really) about you not telling me about your brother, but I didn't even tell you I had two. (Or did I...? ~_~) I'm the middle child. My younger brother is also seriously annoying, and I also show him the things I create, LOL. I couldn't help but notice that similarity. My younger brother's turning 10 soon; how old is yours?
Once again I'll say this. I don't get female humans. *Shakes head and shrugs* Especially when they say they say blood scares them, since... don't they have to deal with blood every month? Let's see if you say the same thing my mom did. And if it wasn't already so obvious, I think blood is really beautiful, so naturally I like it/have no problem with it. *Ahem*
Miniskirts and white...? *Runs away covering a blushing face* Leave me aloooone...!
Not every story needs a climax or anticlimax. Take a Slice-of-Life, for example.
No, no, no. You're exaggerating. I can only draw with a mouse because my mouse is so awesome. Period.
Nah. If one draws well on a tablet, it's guaranteed they'll draw well on paper.
I got jealous. Nothing more to it. I guess you could say I was bitter because I didn't have any talent. So I had two options: hate all talented people, or deny that talent exists in the first place. I did both. @_@; I'm still a little bitter even now, but there's no helping it. God's unfair.
Tablet drawings? Here and here~ See what I mean?
Why does it matter that you're older? No matter what, you'll still be older than me. "Sayahi-nee"... =_=; "Sayahi-senpai"... =_=; A-Anyway... ("v";)
Ah... Kyon annoyed me too. There are pictures in the novels. Some. I don't like the art, though.
Ah, my parents split up when I was 3. Before my dad remarried, me and my brother visited her on the weekends. She was already in a relationship with this Hui guy, as far as I can remember. Last time I saw her was when I was 9, and that's because my family dropped by Cambodia (the country I was born in and stayed for the first few years of my life in) for a week. Me and my brother spend and hour or two with her. According to what I heard from my brother, she married that guy and she had a miscarriage (or more). My dad never talks about this stuff to me. He only really trusts my bro. Ooh, when I mention "my brother", I mean my older brother. When talking about my younger brother, I always add "younger" to it. The reason why I didn't mention him is because he's my half-brother and doesn't even know it. (Sad, huh?) On top of that, my dad remarried again, and my lil bro thinks our current mother is his real mother. (I guess that's a good thing...) My current step-mom is Filipino, by the way. Just giving you a brief overview of my family. Now tell me about yours. =_=
I know, right? I thought she was a guy too. When I found out, I was like, "WTF?! A WOMAN...?!" But the thing is... a while ago, you called her "the queen of trolling", so... yeah... ~_~;
S-Sure...?? (Still pretty lost.) Let's go for chibi, then. But since you need to draw our respective characters, I guess this will be put on hold? o.o Since I'm not even completely done with... yeah... ahaha...
I guess some people can't stand being criticized.
Gladly. ^^ Feel free to email me the stuff whenever you need it looked over. *Puts on glasses* I'll send you an email so that you can say my address. (Since you probably forgot it.)
Because it was a table... o_o; ...and there was salt and pepper and ketchup... e_e; and... Oh, people...
What's up with that cake?! I want to eat it! *Completely ignores writing*
NomenHicInserto | 11-22-13, 11:17 AM
Before I reply...
You don't have to reply to the lesson.
NomenHicInserto | 11-19-13, 5:17 PM
Thank you very much. This is much more convenient. <3 (Not that I saw the other comments...)
Ah... I've been meaning to say this for some time now. You're quite the artist, aren't you? Also, you seem very passionate about drawing. ^^
I honestly have no idea how to develop the romance, so don't expect much. I keep telling myself to just jot down ideas and organize them later, but she's not listening!
Mystery will sort of be like this: Seemingly straightforward story, but many flashbacks getting thrown in, which in turn makes the main story mysterious.
Darker, but not dark per se. I guess?? <-- not even sure of her own characters. #fail
Seriously? 12 Years seems pretty clean to me.
Nope. Too much of a hassle. I've made websites in the past, so... ><;
Why not a webtoon? o_o; I've already planned the panels to be webtoon-ish as opposed to manga-ish. (Mostly because I suck at manga panels, unlike someone...)
I honestly don't remember what website I read Lucky Bride on. I just remember the one-shot. You have a younger brother? Y U NO TELL ME?!
Nurse Sayahi... For some reason, I think that would suit you very well. Maybe I have a nurse fetish... hmm... And I plan to enter nursing school?! No wonder! <-- Not at all the reason ;;
Climax? Awesome. Is there an anti-climax in the story?
Drawing with a mouse, a talent? Pffffffffffffft. I don't have any talents. Actually, a while down the road, I refused to believe talent even existed. Mostly because I was jealously hurt. T_T
Ah, I have a battery for the tablet now. The thing is, though... I feel like I had more control drawing with a mouse. On top of that, the strokes are cleaner and thinner. But drawing with a mouse is tiresome and time-consuming... Drawing with this tablet, though, is very messy (the UGLY kind), thick-stroked, and I lack full control. Best option still seems like paper. But I lack tools and patience. On top of that, I draw so much on PC, that when I make a mistake on paper, my hand unconsciously moves to where Ctrl and Z would be if there was a keyboard. *Mega facepalm-blush combo* >///< Sigh... I wish I had a Wacom Cintiq or Intuous pressure tablet. However... Price: $1000+ *Dies*
My dilemma: Don't respond to compliments and seem conceited, or say "thank you" and torture myself. -_-;
Thanks. It was nothing big, which I liked. I'm 16 now~ Yay(?)~
Awesome. I look forward to who Shiron falls in love with. Could it be... her? O_o
No. It wasn't a harem. Suzumiya was obviously in love with Kyon [useless hero], but I'm unsure of his feelings. He's attracted to Moe-san (>_>;), but I think if the series continued, we'd see him grow more attached to Suzumiya. I mean, the movie showed the beginning of it. I just... can't be bothered to read the LNs right now (even though I have them).
Ah, don't worry. I'm serious when I say this: You can say whatever you want to me. If it makes me uncomfortable, I'll be sure to say so. Feel free to be imposing, or insensitive, or whatever.
I was never alone with him. I always went with my mother when she left. I don't remember how I got my way, but I probably threw a tantrum, or cried miserably. I'm pretty sure I told her I didn't like him, though, so she probably thought I didn't want to spend time alone with him. Then again, it could also be because she didn't fully trust him and was afraid he might just rape/molest me. (Really? O_o) Anyway, that dream made me really want to contact her (more than before). I fear asking my dad for her email address, though. But I know she'll be really happy to hear from me...
What? LOL! I suck at explaining. Seriously.
First off, Jun Mochizuki is a woman; second of all, I doubt she gets some sick pleasure from fooling her readers. She must just be happy that no one figured everything out. I mean, I would feel that kind of relieve/happiness.
Of course we can have matching ones! How do we do that exactly? Because if it includes a lot of work, I'll pass... *Really lazy person here*
YOU FORGOT ABOUT THE OLD LADY?! Dx You forgot about the old lady? ^^ You really need someone to review your stuff before you publish it. *Ahem ahem*
You should have explained it. Questions like those make your manga seem like one of those "hey, it's a manga, so anything goes, right?" types. :<
Yes, time travel is a confusing subject. Do you now see why I had trouble planning Rewind's plot? Things didn't add up, and I didn't want any holes. Anyway, Time Travel lesson:
You liked my feedback? I fear giving feedback because I fear hurting people. Some people are really sensitive, so giving (constructive) criticism makes them get hurt/angry. Basically, they don't like it. I like criticism, though. Besides, no one can ever criticize me to the extent that I do to myself. ~_~;
What?! You want me to be your consultant? That annoying person looking over your shoulder and pointing out your mistakes? Hontou ni?!
Before I end off this reply, I wanted to talk about my personal life. Earlier tonight, I went to one of my dad's co-worker's birthday party. I'd never met her before tonight. You were expected to buy your own food (it was at a restaurant in a hotel), so I was a little disappointed I came. My parents obviously didn't buy anything (it's expensive!), but to look "in", my dad ordered drinks. Anyway, my dad got into a little argument with another co-worker (from Canada!) which was hilarious, but I didn't see it, unfortunately. According to my brother, my dad was commenting on what he was drinking (alcohol), and he went something like, "Look at all these bottles! Wha... you even drink ketchup?" (since the ketchup bottle was near the alcohol bottle, LOL.) And he responded by saying, "Look at my mustache!" while pointing to his mustache with a middle finger. LOL. My dad shook his head, or so I heard. Anyway, I just spend the night talking to this guy (the Canadian) and we talked about Canada and some other countries he's been to. That's all. ^^ I got dressed up all nicely too, and for nothing. ><;
NomenHicInserto | 11-14-13, 11:10 AM
Really long comment, for some reason... (Sorry.) Take your time replying~ (I can only respond every 3-4 days, anyway.)
NomenHicInserto | 11-08-13, 4:30 AM
The secret is... the eyes. If you want characters to look different, it's mostly about the eyes. Hair comes next. I want characters that can change their hair style or color and still look like themselves, you know?
I forgot to read 12 Years last time I had the dongle. Only 6 chapters? o.o Why?
Publish my story? LOL. I can't envision publishing a draft... See, in order for me to not give up on this whole manga (which I'm just going to call Rewind for now), I have to make sure I don't so anything that may make me want to. For now, I'll just fully plan the plot and characters, and then draft the manga. You'll be the first, if not the only one, to see it. Then someday (maybe when I finally have a pressure tablet?!), I'll start polishing the draft. Whenever that happens, you'll probably be the first to see it again. :D Then you can compare the draft to the outcome. Anyway, then, I'll publish it... somewhere... or maybe not? ~_~;
Yes. Mentioning Cough's name would be a spoiler... perhaps the biggest spoiler of the story... sort of. His/her name isn't the spoiler, but if you know who it is, then you'll realize the character is something more than meets the eye (since I started with his/her story first)... Wait. Isn't this already a spoiler?! Dx A heads-up warning: there will be many flashbacks in my story. Please pay full attention to them, Audience-chan. ><; Plot is really important in this story. Did I even mention that my story is a Sci-Fi that takes place in the future (yet again)??
Anyway, Rachel! Telling you her name is already kind of a spoiler, but pretty much everyone would have already guessed who she was, so... ┐(￣-￣)┌ Oh, right. I said I'd draw you her in 3-4 angles... *Ahem* Ah, yeah, I didn't do that yet. So, just take her character sheet/draft thingy. It's even in color (well, some of it). Jaa~ (Just realized I always go "jaa" despite it meaning "bye" in Japanese... ;;)
Actually, I'm glad the story turned out to be grander than I expected. Once I'm done with the draft (and you read it? O:), I'll tell you how the story was originally supposed to go... xD
o_o... *No words to respond to your fangirling*
Shiron's a tusndere? *Raises eyebrow* I thought you hate tsunderes. Let me guess... the usual "but if it's a guy...!", right? >.>;
Empty? I don't get that at all. Don't you want your art to be more proportionate? Guidelines are really useful, you know. But, of course, it's your choice. Anyway, speaking of art, you said your old drawings were really disproportionate (big heads, big boobs, etc.). xD Can I see? Can I? :D
Yes, yes. We've been over this already before. (Another one of your memory lapses?)
A dramatic manga story? O_o The impression I got was lighthearted and bright (thanks to your colors).
How long have you been drawing, Sayahi-chan? I quit drawing many times because I wasn't satisfied with my skills. To be honest, I don't think I ever will.
I feel you. I haven't been drawing guys for that long myself, so I encounter many problems and I'm like, "Ugh!"
Yes, why don't I? Hmm... Oh! Because I have nowhere to go to? ^^ On top of that, I'm in a foreign country? ^^ Should I run away, no one would pay for my visa, then I'll be forced to stay in this country forever... Where do I find work? What about my education? Where do I get money? Where do I live? On top of that, this country is a Muslim country, meaning male-dominant. Running away is equivalent to wanting to get kidnapped and raped. Yes, I think running away is a great idea. ^^ Damn my cursed life. T_T
What kind of dream is that? LOL. Hmm, I had a dream today too. (Not that I don't usually have dreams...) It was about my biological mother. She owned an ice cream/smoothie/slushy store in a mall. I ordered something from her, but then she gave it to another customer instead. T_T Anyway, that was weird. Ha ha. (I've, like, never ever had dreams about her.)
Yeah... I still don't get it. ("v";) Please don't hit Lea. D:
P.S. I read up to volume 20 of Pandora Hearts yesterday. For once, I was actually fully immersed in the story. So I finally felt like I fully knew everything that was going on. On top of that, I feel PH is going to end soon. I feel maximum it'll span up to volume 25.
Sorry for the long comment, by the way. But you wrote a long one too.
NomenHicInserto | 11-04-13, 5:58 PM
When I sign into MAL, looking forward to your comment, and I don't see one, I'm like, "Aww." I keep reminding myself that you only reply on weekdays. Aww.
A male character? You have problems with male characters? I have problem with females. Well, not really... I simply don't like too many females in a story... because women, they... *traumatic flashback* M-Moving on... 8 chapters?? Awesome! I'll read them, and give you my honest thoughts on them! :D Oh... So you're saying before you start the story, you make sure you've planned everything? I never plan my stories. T_T Maybe that's why I never finished them... My current story is the only one I've planned (and it's near-complete too! Like, 95% fully planned). 20 chapters? Short, yet long. It's a good length.
Remember how I said I finished Heroine-chan's design, but then I had the problem with her eyes? Well, screw that. I really am done with her design now. She even has a name. It's Rachel. It just came to me like: "Thou shalt be called Rachel!" *Thunder in the background and dramatic lighting* I'll draw her for in 3-4 different angles (but truth is, I just want to get used to drawing her ^^;). As for the story, once I stopped trying to plan things starting with the protagonist (Blaze), and instead with *cough*, everything flowed easily. The start of everything really is the best place to start, huh? The only thing I haven't planned yet are the things that require the most screen time: development between Blaze and Rachel, and the action. I don't have faith in my romance skills. I want it to be realistic, and make you want to root for them...or something. ~_~; I still have to design Blaze *Facepalms* and I still have to design the outfits... The closest I have to a design of Blaze is this and this, and that's not even Blaze. LOL. He's just some random adult I drew the other week, and he sort of reminds me of Baek In Ho from CIIT. ><;
Oh, great, great. :D I haven't gotten around to drawing them yet, but I did draw their eyes~
Yes, I kind of noticed that. Hayato seems like an uptight megane whereas Shiron sees spunky and cool (so seeing you draw him blush like that is kind of weird xD). I'd take him over Hayato any day.
"But I love sketchy/sloppy art! It's the reason why I never finish all my sketches." Right... You know the reason is because you're too lazy. xP
Well, at least use guidelines for the face. That's the only time I'll ever use guidelines. xP
I really liked the "Dripping Wings Off a Butterfly" one and that mail one. With the hottest guy I've seen you draw yet and the blonde girl he has his arm around. I love those colors! I'd really die if I could send you one drawing of mine and have you paint it like that.
Even if I draw better than you, it doesn't mean I have any strong points. It just means I either have more experience than you (possible, since my "good" drawings started when I was 7) or I simply learn faster than you (more plausible).Of course, I have many weak points... *Collapses* Clothes, postures, hands... you freakin' name it! ><; As for the mouse drawings, simply good hand control and a great mouse.
That's an interesting site. However, I have Photoshop and Sai (and don't always have internet), so I won't be using that site any time soon.
Yes. (-_-;) I also can't tell apart Shiron's hair from Hayato's. They look the same except for the bangs.
No, no. If I could find a job, my dad most probably won't let me do it. Dammit, just let me have an excuse to stay out of the house and earn some money too!
Partner in crime on dA? Explain to this ignoramus, please. ("v")
NomenHicInserto | 10-31-13, 2:05 AM
Well, now that I know that, I'm glad that contacting you will be easy. If MAL shuts down, I can send you an an email and be sure you'll read it soon. What was your email address again...? ^^;; firstname.lastname@example.org?
Wut? ~_~; Only two males? How about male friends, then? Or maybe boyfriends of Yanaki's friends? There're loads of ways to add guys not related to the romance in. Speaking of 12 Years, how many chapters have you completed? And how long is it going to be? Given the pace you go, it may be a good idea to make the manga a short one. Even if you planned for it to be long, that's better than giving up the manga altogether out of disinterest or a lack of motivation.
M-Mine? Heh heh heh... I'm so busy these days that I don't have time to even draw. Weekends are the only time, and I prefer to just relax or watch/read something. ^^; I won't have you waiting forever, though.
Yanaki? Nah. It wasn't that hard to adapt her hair because it had unique characteristics; the guys' didn't! *Rages* While I was drawing it, though, I somehow became somewhat attached to Shiron. He appears snarky, and since he's the underdog, I feel for him.
Pretty?? It's so half-assed and sloppy! Do you not see the sloppy pen lines?? It's just that I'm more comfortable drawing with a pen, and to do sketch-/draft-/doodle-style drawings because I won't beat myself up if make a mistake here and there. But I can't give someone a sketchy drawing! That's why Yanaki was half a sketch, and half a polished drawing. I don't dare show you the version with both Shiron and Hayaato in. ><; I'll draw a new picture for you on the weekend if I can. Are you okay with sketchy-looking drawings? My best works come out of those, so... (First, I have to "get to know" Shiron's and Hayato's designs, of course.)
That's true. I think your biggest problems with drawing right now are consistency and postures. You should try working on those. For consistency, you can try using guidelines until you get the hang of drawing consistently without them; for postures, consider observing real people or other people's artwork. Here I am giving you advice while I have many problems myself... =_=; Anyway, I think the strongest point in your artwork is the coloring, namely the water colors. They're very beautiful and attractive. On the other hand, I fail miserably at any form of coloring... nor do I have any strong points. *Sighs miserably*
LOL. I was just fooling around. It wasn't traumatic; just tiresome and irritating. Curse those bastards who thought they could take advantage of my good heart! <-- Such conceit. The only thing I'd hate you for is coming up with such weird hair designs for your guys! Thanks to that, I failed drawing them! *Tries to pin the blame on you* xD
You got a job? That's great. I envy thee. I have desired a job since forever. Unfortunately, due to unchangeable circumstances, I was never able to get one. *Weeps* Your dad was disappointed that you got a job? O_o Sounds like how mine would react... except he would probably stop me from working altogether – if I could get a job, that is. So you work every day?
No, no. I like it when you talk about personal stuff. I feel I can get to know you better that way. I have a clear idea of who you are, but I don't have any clues to as how your life is.

Oh, so you always sign into Hotmail... I used to do that too, but then MAL took priority over Hotmail. Sorry for the late reply, by the way.
Ah... Seriously, then, why the love triangle? Just to make A jealous? o_e
o_o?? Uh, anyway... First off, I want to apologize. I drew Yanaki, Shiron, and Hayato on the weekend... but... Ugh. I did a pretty half-assed and sloppy job (I mostly used pen, after all). I probably failed horribly because you drew your guys with such crazy hair! (Pinning the blame on you LOLOL) It was hard for me to adapt them into my style. So, I'll just show you Yanaki, since she turned out okay, I guess. (I'll maybe try to draw all three again sometime. But for now, please just accept this. ;;) Jaa~
Wavy. Pfft.. :'x Indeed. But I liked that. Anyway, the first eye was the one I was going for, but I can't draw it nicely from the side! Unless you can...? *Suspicious glare*
o_o... Like now?
It's bland, plain, and, frankly, boring. There. I preferred my old ones. ><
It is facepalmable.
Requests? *Gasps* The old days of requests (No, not GIFs)... *Shudders miserably at the trauma*
What have you been reading/watching lately, by the way? (I almost never ask you this.)
NomenHicInserto | 10-24-13, 11:33 AM
Thank goodness you aren't anymore. That's a good girl. *pets* Purr, dammit. "...but guy B won't unrequitedly like yanaki..." That means she likes both A and B?? *Flips table* (These days I have been flipping tables often.) Oh, so he moves on and ends up happy? That's great. I guess you want everyone happy because they're like your children.
All three? THEY AREN'T EVEN FROM THE SAME UNIVERSE! *Flips table* And what about Scientist-chan, then? Why does Megane-kun get an appearance but not his girlfriend? (Though I'm also against you drawing all four of them.)
Hmm... I feel you. I'm worried the same might happen with me. So I decided I'll just draw the draft first. I can make it look nice gradually over a long period of time.
Seriously? LOL. I always drew with 5 fingers.
Yep. Yanaki, Hayato, and Shiron. I've been meaning to ask, but what kind of names are "Yanaki" and "Shiron"? o.o
Ugh. Designs. Blaze makes me tired. I thought I had his eyes done, but I decided that they look weird (after drawing both eyes together). As for Heroine-chan, her design is almost finished, but it's her eyes! I like the eyes I gave her, but I have trouble drawing them from the side. So I came up with two other designs, but I don't like them that much. So tell me, which is nicer to you? A | B | C
THEY AREN'T EVEN FROM THE SAME UNIVERSE! *Flips table*
No, no, no. The person calling the other "onii-san" isn't the pervert; the one receiving it is. :P
LOL. Why is this comment so short? ;A;
Perform the dogeza 5 more times! *Sadistic empress*
Ah, you like my profile? I don't. I just wanted to change it because I wanted to change my promotional GIF. I'll make a better one for ToG in time. Do you want to see the original one I made for Kubera? It's so face-palm-able. ><;; I remember someone asking to use it. Hold on a bit. Here~
NomenHicInserto | 10-24-13, 6:04 AM
Why? I started it, so I may as well finish it. <-- My policy. Besides, since you made it, then I'm that much more interested in it.
So she ends up with... her husband? So why is there even a love triangle to begin with? ô.o So unfair to B-kun, since he probably unrequitedly likes the heroine. v_v
><; Well, I sort of drew it everywhere. This page reads left to right; the next page, right to left; and so on. The "sequel" I started, but never finished, was left to right always.
No, he doesn't. He has two earrings, though. Ah, but I wanted you to draw Blaze and Heroine-chan! ("A") I even finished her design the other day. She just doesn't have a name yet. Blaze's design is barely done. x_x
I never finish anything I write. I'm hoping I'll at least finish the current manga I'm working on. It's just... the damn plot. When I start planning it, I start to get confused. I want it to confuse the audience, but why am I also getting confused?!?
...Okay, my art wasn't like that at all. o_o; I drew big heads (not nearly as big as yours), ugly hands (though they were passable for a little kid), wrinkle-less clothes, and fake-looking hair. As for the eyes... how did I draw them? My dad used to scan my drawings and stored them on his hard drive. I lost all my old drawings, and his hard drive crashed so... (:"~")
I want to draw the heroine and hero of 12 Years, and I'd like you to draw the hero and heroine of my story. ("^") I'm really excited now. ^^ I can start drawing it whenever I have time. You, on the other hand, have to wait for me to finish my designs. x_x;
If that's the case, since you have 3 protagonists, I'll draw all three of them (with the heroine in the middle). ^^ Really excited about this. :DD~
Well, to have your girlfriend call you "onii-san" is kind of perverted because that makes you a look like a siscon. However, in Korea, it's very common for girls to call their boyfriends "oppa" (Korean equivalent of "onii-san"). It's actually weird if you call your friend, or acquaintance, who is older than you, "oppa" since it's like hinting you want him to be your boyfriend or something. However, if it's someone who you treat like your brother, then "oppa" is also okay. But I digress.
They were? Goodness, my. I don't mind, though. I enjoy conversing with you. ^^
Yes, indeed. o_o;;
NomenHicInserto | 10-21-13, 8:02 PM
Well, I was going to say more, but since you ship Xerxes together with Sharon, I won't. It's good to see you're changing in that area too... *Shine*
5. Homo... Yes, LOL. Either that, or bi. o_o;
Your manga has an LT like number 6? ...*Silently flips table* Yes, that was a spoiler. And what do you mean? If you're talking about 12 Years, I have read the first chapter(s). I just haven't had the time (or memory) to read the newer chapters. Oh, wait. I just reread what you wrote. It's not going to be like that. *Puts table back in place and cheers*
I don't have a scanner. I use my shitty phone camera, and try to improve the quality in Photoshop. The text will hardly be recognizable. Besides, I drew it it weird order. Then it's right to left, then it's left to right, then it's bottom to the top. (What??) On top of that, it's only the climax (i.e. the ending) of the story that I drew out. The rest was in my head.
What? But I wanted you to draw Blaze... He looks nicer and is a better character in general. ><;
Ah, but see, almost all these "love stories" took place in my head. If paper was near by, I'd simply draw a character that was in the scene that's taking place in my head, or I'd draw part of that scene. That manga draft ending thingamajig was the closest I had to actual story on paper. I even started a sequel to the story, but never finished drawing it. Oh, wait. There was one more manga I started (but typically didn't finish). The story about Ghost-kun. :/ I really wanted to finish that, but I couldn't get the planning right, and... *sigh* Just gave up on it in the end.
Those drawings are from last year... So even though my art has improved, it's natural that last year's art wasn't that bad. When I was young, I didn't even know how to draw men! (But, yes, I drew huge heads many times too. ;;) Oh, and the poses... nasty. e_e;;
Oh, that's awesome! What character should I draw, then?? *Excited*
I'm sort of shipping Oz with Alice too, but Xerxes and Sharon are cute together, like you said. ^^ Yes, he cares for her, and she cares for him. she even calls him "-nii"... Isn't that kind of perverted, Xerxes? =_=;
So it was long? *Gasps* Gomenasai
No, I don't have a deviantART account. This conversation(?) between us just took place on another art-sharing website. >.>;
NomenHicInserto | 10-17-13, 7:48 AM
You used to be more mature? o_o *Gasp* People can actually become less mature over time?
"Sometimes, I really love stories with an awesome side characters, too!" Sometimes.
I was just describing the three I encounter the most; not all the LTs I've encountered. Here are some others I've encountered:  P-san is in love with B, and vice versa, but when A comes along, P-san tosses away B and fawns over A, despite B still loving P-san (*Cough* Otona Pink *Cough*);  P-san loves both A and B, but can't choose between them (*Flips table*);  P-san loves A more than B, but can't end up with A, so chooses B as a second choice (*Shoots P-san*);  P-san is in love with neither A or B, but they are in love with P-san;  P-san loves A, but A loves B, and B loves P-san (?!?!?!); and  P-san loves B, but switches over to A (who loves P-san) over time, because A's the hero/ine (-_-). Note: P-san is the main protagonist of the story, whether hero or heroine; A is the second protagonist (i.e. the hero for the heroine, or the heroine for the hero); B may or may not be a main character – s/he's usually known as "the other guy/girl". Don't worry, B; I'll support you. T.T
I haven't even searched yet. o.o;; O-Okay... I'll look now. D:
*10 minutes later*
......... I-I... can't believe... I had that many characters! >:O Just how many stories did I come up with?!?! See, most of my stories I came up with just to entertain me during school, or whenever I was bored and had nothing to do. I'd just continue the story in my head, and if it was during class, I'd draw the characters or a scene here and there. ^^;
Anyway, I even found a draft manga in there... o.o; Uh, I found their names – along with many other characters and their names! The guy's name is 'Celo di Radeger' (What kind of a last name is that?!?). And the girl's... well, her "file" says 'Menri J. Sabre', but another place I wrote her name as Marina. Maybe I changed her name or something...? @.@
I also found Scientist-kun and Scientist-chan. I couldn't find a 'good' picture of Scientist-kun. ;A; I actually drew him good-looking somewhere. Oh, and yes, he's a megane. LOL.
Gosh. I found so many of my old ideas. Many of them were supernatural. They were all love stories, on top of that. (I seemed to like entertaining myself with romance... ;;) Werewolf-kun. Demon-kun. Vampire-chan. Assassin-kun. Officer-chan. Yangire-shota-kun. Ghost-kun. Cynic-chan. Policeman-chan. Tranny-chan (???). Many Slice-of-Life-like characters too. Kyaa, so many embarrassing characters and plots... Dx
Er, enough of that. *Ahem* If we do an art trade, I'll just trade the characters I'm working on: Blaze and Unnamed-chan. However, I thought I'd show you the four characters I mentioned, now that I've found them. [Scientists] [Sci-Fi] [A little something extra I found] One more thing! In art trades, do you draw your own characters and trade for another person's drawing of their characters, or do you draw the other person's characters and they yours, and then trade?? *Puzzled* (You: Noob.)
Xerxes x Sharon? Yes, please. xD Hmm? Odd. You're shipping two characters who aren't the hero and herone together. *Flabbergasted*
Is this the usual length too, then? I wrote too much about myself/my stuff. Conceited, much? ;A;
Of course, since you never read the news, after all~ Now when's YT and image BBcode coming back, I wonder.
NomenHicInserto | 10-14-13, 10:18 AM
Ah~ I always look forward to your replies, and to replying to you~
No... *Scratches cheek* Feel free to... glomp... as much as you want. LOL. *Envisions you chomping me like a wedge of cake involuntarily*
Replying? I hope it's not me that's taking all your library time as opposed to everyone you have to reply to... ;; Just wondering, but what ever happened to your iPad sessions? :o
LOL. Yes, liar. *Refuses to elaborate* Spoil you? Nah. I have no desire to do such. Mostly because I don't feel like talking about Naruto.
Haha. I have lots of points...? *Thinks of something weird* Are you implying I look at things from a professional perspective? If you are, goodness, no. That's not true. Anyway, with you I can tell that when you read a story, you only really care about the hero and heroine. If the story has more than one male or female protagonist, then you'll just care about the main male or female protagonist. I mean, that's fine, but I'm not like that. In a story, I want every character to be good because I can vouch/root/care for any character – whether s/he's a main character or not. Even if I end up liking only one character from a story, I still want the characters I dislike/hate to be well-written as well. Cheap, poor, and shallow characters make me want to drop a series (and flip a table). Even if a character is how annoying, so long as s/he's a good character, I'm okay. I'm saying I hate stories where only the hero and/or heroine matter.
Love triangles. *Sigh* Maybe the reason I hate them is because of how they're presented. The three kinds of triangles I encounter the most are (a) Protagonist-san loves both A and B, but chooses A in the end anyway because C's the hero/ine – or at least the main hero/ine; (b) P-san loves A, but is only a little attracted/in love with B, so naturally still chooses A; and (c) P-san loves A, but is completely oblivious/indifferent to B's feelings, ending up choosing A anyway! In the end, P-san lives happily ever after with A. How fabulous. -_- I'm saying I hate triangles where it's obvious B never stood a chance; however, if B is unrequitedly in love with P-san, and it's presented in a believable, understandable, and/or realistic way (unlike Example C – being that Example C was one of those stories where the hero ends up with the heroine simply because they're the hero and heroine -_-). On a side note, I especially like it when B moves on because P-san rejected him/her. But you say that's the worst. Hmm...
I'll probably read it in the future, so I'll tell you then. (BgI, that is.)
Original character? Yes...? No...? Kind of? Well, I created these two characters in the past (in a Sci-Fi that took place in the future), but I can't even remember their names. The guy had a C name...? The girl a...??? *Shrugs* (It was like a year ago.) Later, I created these two scientist characters... Also don't remember their names. Maybe if I rummage through my old scraps/doodles, I can find their names written down somewhere. Right now, I have two characters in mind too. But I haven't even gotten around to working on their designs. (Busy...) In fact, I'm not even too sure about their names yet. I decided on 'Xerxes' for the guy (since it's my favorite male name and it sounds out-of-this-world), but I think he needs a cooler name since he's cool. So like Ace? LOL. Ah, how about... Blaze! I'll go with that. That name fits him so well. I don't about the girl yet, though. *Shrugs* Maybe we can art-trade when I design them. ^^; (How do art trades work again? @_@)
Sorry I wrote three long paragraphs. I know you have limited time. ;A;
Your owl shirt is cute. :D
Color and URL BBCode are back, by the way. Yay~

Thanks! Toshokan Sensou is probably my favorite of any and all :) <3333
