My friend :iconprincess-marina-chan: has tagged me:  



1.
Have you met any celebrities?

Yush. My favourites were Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa ( the creator and character designer of the MGS series ), Vic Mignogna and Quinton Flynn ( Raiden’s voice actor ). Shinkawa gives people really simple portrait doodles along with their autographs so according to him I have a square for a face, two dots for eyes and a little smiley mouth :giggle:    


2. Favourite Disney Villian.

Helga Sinclair from Atlantis. She’s just really badass while still not actually being evil ( just greedy ), and has a little moment of redemption before helping to take down the main villain. I’m also quite fond of Ronno from Bambi 2 because he’s the most expressive character in the film and tries to act like a little tough nut but keeps making an idiot out of himself instead ^^      


3. Favourite Singer?

Non-anime related – Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi and Micheal Buble

Others – Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, Vic Mignogna, Miyano Mamoru, Angela Aki


4. Read any Manga?

Yush. Favourites include Evangelion, Fruits Basket, Fullmetal Alchemist, Full Metal Panic and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.


5. Favourite KH title?

Hmmm, maybe Birth by Sleep because I like playing as Aqua. And obviously I haven’t played the Nintendo ones because I’m a Playstation gamer. Chain of Memories definitely isn’t my fave though since fighting by selecting cards in real time makes some of the boss battles a real pain in the butt.  


6. Would you consider watching an Anime called "Symphogear"?

It doesn’t really look like my type of series to be honest. I’m more drawn to characters who are normal people or who have human abilities but that might happen to be in an unusual situation ( like in Death Note, The Walking Dead, Silent Hill, etc ). I’m not really one for transformation sequences ^^"    


7. Like Vocaloid?

I don’t dislike it but I’m not hugely into it since as far as I can tell they are just musical voices and don’t have proper stories to their characters as such. ( I know you found a Vocaloid manga recently but I’m not counting that since it seemed to be a newly made thing and not where they originated from ). Some of them are pretty to look at, I like the colour schemes for Miku and Megurine.  


8. Do you Cosplay?

I might… possibly… considering that was how I met you… and I was in cosplay… and I just spent the other weekend hanging out with you… while in cosplay… Ninja 


9. What’s your most prized possession?

My photo memories from conventions and events, my autographs from the people in question 1, my artbooks, my games and my manga.   


10. Have you ever heard of "Apple Dolls"?

Yes, though I’ve never been keen on dolls. I grew up playing with action figures and dinosaur toys X3  


11. Clannad or Little Busters?

Don’t know. Little Busters sounded more interesting from what you told me about it.  


12. Frozen or Tangled?

Tangled! It is my favourite of Disney’s CG movies Boogie! 


13. Do you really love to torture "Princess-Marina-Chan" with tags?

But of course! EVIL Laughter!   

Suburban Survivor by Tsuchinoko-chan
Suburban Survivor

The Last of Us is another of my very most favourite games. I really loved the story, the gradual father and daughter bond which grows between Joel and Ellie, all of the emotional moments and the really interesting and difficult moral choices which the characters have to make. The gameplay is very fun and smooth and hard to put down as well ( just like books on anti-gravity ^_~ ). I loved that gaming got another strong female character in Ellie. I love her attitude and tomboyish-ness, and also that she actually looks just like an everyday normal girl instead of being an overly glamorized character. I’ve been wanting to create a fully coloured illustration of her for some time now, so she now finally gets a place in my gallery ^^  

I spent a lot of time applying different textures to the background, using different speckled brushes with the Brush, Eraser and Blur tools to help achieve the effects that I wanted. Ellie’s T-shirt logo was created in a separate file and then pasted into the main piece. I wanted to make sure that it had a faded look as in the game so I brought the opacity down low and also erased some areas in subtle patches ( again by using a speckled brush on the Eraser ). I also used the Warp tool to subtly curve the T-shirt logo around the shape of her body. The red of the shirt looks a bit brighter here than it was originally intended to be due to changing the image over from CMYK to RGB in order to be able to upload it to Deviantart. I find it hard to tell exactly which eye colour Ellie has since sometimes they look light blue and other times they look more of a light green, so I tried to choose an inbetween shade to use for her.

Minami Special Ops ( 2015 ) by Tsuchinoko-chan
Minami Special Ops ( 2015 )

This is another piece that I created for the conbook of Minamicon, one of my favourite anime conventions. This year the theme was " Cyberpunk. " I wouldn’t say that techy subjects are my forte but I gave it a go. As before their convention mascot is a fairy and it doesn’t seem to have a set design so these characters are ones which I created myself.

Cyberpunk makes me think of characters with partly dyed hair, sometimes wearing army colours, blue and purple hues and computer screens, so I included those elements. I searched for and downloaded some free typefaces for the Masquerade countdown clock and for the other computer text since I didn’t really have any suitable techy-looking fonts. And I made up a unit badge in another file and then copied it over into the main piece. I already wanted the character illustration in the speech bubble, but I got the idea of including the little SOS! phrase from Valiant Hearts which I was playing at the time that I made my rough thumbnail sketch. I also made the speech bubble slightly transparent so that the text behind it can still be read if required.

This is something I've been wondering about for some time, but I was wondering how much people would think my artwork would be worth if I were to do the odd commission occasionally?

You're very welcome ^^
I find it really disturbing that a character that represents depression so realistically gets so much hate, so much respect to you for making a good stamp for Shinji :nod:
