Blast from the past
Saw i_pup tweeted about finding an old print-out of my old fan art, and I went to did a quick dig around for some old files and found a few… kinda nostalgic ^^;
Some of the artwork were actually auctioned off when I went to my 1st and 2nd anime expo in LA :) Above is an watercolour/gouache piece, it’s probably one of my personal favourite :) her pose was likely referred from a photograph, and dress etc referred from the original artworks at the time. I’m not sure if I still have a large original scan of it tho ^^;
This Deedlit fan art was likely auctioned too ^^; her legs + shoes look funny ^^;; It was dated year 2000 ^^
I referred Nissu from some artwork seen on some Magazines :P I never seen Nissu animated tho?
I think one of the main reason I don’t draw/post as much fan art as before is because I find that fan art seem to get stolen without my permission a lot of the times ^^;
I remember someone actually found my artwork printed on postcards at a convention where my signature was actually still on it… whoever sold it to the people who printed it for sale probably pretended to be the artist of my work… that was awful =_= I mean I painted my work and uploaded them for online viewing/personal use — not for profitable purposes… Luckily my friend was able to help me get the artwork taken down ^^;
Nice works! ^^
I remember seeing the first art in the Chinese Papers many many moons ago. ^^;
good memory ^^; I don’t even remember >_<
But of course, it’s 12 years ago after all.
In the article you mentioned the people in US prefer sexier art pieces as sexy ones get auctioned off first. ^^;
hahaha I wonder ^^;
Just wanted to let you know that you were a huge inspiration to me many years ago. I was about thirteen when I came across your art, and I really idolised you! I wanted to draw just like you. :) You certainly helped me to form the style of art I use today. So thanks for being such a huge inspiration all those years ago.
Hey!! Thanks for coming by! Your work is fantastic, I really love it! It is humbling to see you excel and become way more than what I want to be, keep up the great work :D
