Both of the samples or just the fanfic sample? Well, no matter, I’ll just explain both samples then.
For the sample of the fancomics, we put in random panel from the comics (yes, they are all in the form of comics, pages of them) instead of the full comic page because we are a bunch of teasers and would keep the whole contents exclusively for buyers of the anthology.
As for the case of the fanfics sample, it is actually a compilation of excerpts from every fanfic we have in this anthology and not a sample of one fanfic. Each paragraph from the sample was taken from different fanfic. Now that I think about it, it is indeed could cause some confusion to potential readers, maybe I should add in some explanation about the fanfic sample later.
#2 Show your pencil case and what’s inside.
I used to take a humongous pencil case full with art supplies wherever I go, but now I usually just take this mini transparent pencil case I got when I bought a set of Faber Castle stationaries with me (for practical purpose).
So yeah, what’s inside? Hmm, mini ruler, 3 types of mechanical pencils, 2 drawing pens, regular pen, a USB, an eraser and a pack of spare leads. If I get ideas whenever I’m outside the house, I just sketch it in my sketchbook and then proceed to render it after I get home later on.
#6 Draw a same pic with your dominant and non-dominant hand.
#7 Do I have any OCs?
Bb, do I ever! I have plenty of OCs for several original series I’ve got planned, but right now my main focus is to deepen the universe concept of my ASEAN Gakuen OCs (that was the old version, I should post their refined designs and character profiles as soon as possible here).
Also, this is my pet project at the moment:
which currently is also being refined (that pic above is rather old). If you’re interested, I’ll post more about them in the future ^ ^
#10 Least favorite thing to draw?
Mother loving BACKGROUND.
I think I have too short attention span to draw complicated background (since it demands longer time to draw). I do somehow manage to draw it in the end, but that doesn’t mean I enjoy the process -____-;;
In the fanfics sample?
Yeah, sorry if it might be a bit confusing to read, but it’s actually a compilation of excerpts from every fanfic we have in this anthology and not a sample of one fanfic. There would be nine fanfics in Mizimel, each with different story and point of view, hence the mixed pronouns in the sample provided. Each paragraph from the sample was taken from different fanfic.
I hope this is enough to answer your question ^ ^ feel free to ask again if you still need more information.

This is hands down the best cat video circulating around the internet
Am busy editing and answering emails (God, I always feel so anxious and scared when I have to open up important emails and correspond, is this normal?).
Here’s some rockin’ cat to cheer you up and give you courage.
IF YOUR ART GETS STOLEN
Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.
IT WOOOOORKED! I love you, I avenged a stolen drawing with over 11K notes, I’m so fucking happy! but for the next time the admins told me to contact firstname.lastname@example.org instead of using the DMCA tool!
Useful stuff for artists who repeatedly got their art stolen (I’ll certainly keep this info for just in case).
Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

The only one missing is Smaug!These are wallpapers I made from downloaded pics.
I’ve been listening to LOTR and The Hobbit soundtracks while working on a project lately, this song always gave me such intense feels hhhnnnggghhh. Be still, my heart!
Finally received the postcards from r-navy! There were floods investing my city due to continuous raining this month, I was afraid it got lost on the way (or worse, damaged by the water). It’s not, btw, so good job on that, Indonesia’s post service.
I was so lucky I managed to grab the last set of Group C offered by r-navy. I mean, look at the one where Legolas shield-surfing the stairs to meet the love of his life. And the fellowship reunion! I’m totally smitten by the cuteness. Thanks so much, bb!
