The Hobie Family by KachibanaMei007
The Hobie Family
Another drawing I made based on the book I, Coriander by Sally Gardner. I took my samples from Google images of Victorian London dress. This is how I always pictured Corianders family as they were living happily in the beginning of the book.
From left to right: father Thomas, little Coriander (holding her doll Beth) and mother Eleanor Hobie and Eleanor's lady's maid Mary Danes.

Another anime-inspired poster I made for a JnM couple. This is EmiTake based on an image from Lovely Complex.
Hope you like x
Coriander by KachibanaMei007
"For a moment I thought it was nothing more than a trick of light or a tear in my eye, for my mother's garden was alight with colour, brighter than it had been before. The rosemary, the thyme, the coriander, the mint, the roses, the marigolds and lavender shimmered like jewels. I ran my hand through the flowers ans as I did so butterflies rose up and fluttered towards the sun, beating their wings in tune with my heart."

I made this drawing after finally finishing my translation of one of my favourite books, my very first English read, I, Coriander by Sally Gardner. It is based on the very final scene of the book, which takes place in the garden of Coriander's mother.
The clothes are loosely based on a description from the book, though they are not exactly depicted as written;

"In the end I settled upon a flowered satin gown of pale green and to go with it a petticoat of striped silk. Then I chose a bodice made of water-marked taffeta with full sleeves, trimmed with silver lace and pearls, and to top it all, a cut skirt to be tied back so that my pretty petticoats could be seen."

(sorry for the bad quality >__<)
Suzuno by KachibanaMei007
So here's the next piece within my gallery of Naruto OC's showing emotions that they usually don't show xD
this is Suzuno, one of Mei's best friends, she is under a lot of pressure to show achievement and is always focussed on showing her worth to her sister so she feels restricted to show a lot of carelessness>
however, I drew her at a vulnerable moment. I'm still experimenting with facial expressions, more to come!

Hello everybody!!

Sooo, it's a new year and with it come new possibilities! For me, I've been struggling with a lot of ideas and thoughts for my future. A lot of insecurities crept back up again and I've had a rough time corresponding with people around me about what I could be capable of. Whether I would return to college to study (that's been a yes/no/yes/no discussion with myself for a while now).
One thing I know for sure is that I want to return to Japan, preferably to explore and research things in my own time and without the pressure of time and deadlines. So for now, I've put off again the idea of starting my studies again for the sole purpose of going to Japan, and want to start saving money for either an exchange program or an individual journey there.
In the meantime, it's all about the money, really.

Another solution I've made is that I finally decided what to do with my story Jinsei no Minna. I figured it will be too much to make it into a comic after all. I'm not that skilled and I don't have the patience xD
So I'm just going to write the story (and the stories that come with it and support the main storyline and the characters). The art will simply support the story as conceptual art. Nevertheless, I still love drawing my characters and their environments, so if anyone is interested, please ask for more stuff about a character or anything concerning my story. I'm open for art trades and commissions, anything to keep me busy!

Okay then,

  • Listening to: French chansons 8D
  • Reading: Japan-related books
  • Watching: Academic sources @__@
  • Playing: (/T^T)/
  • Eating: \\(T^T)/
  • Drinking: \\(T^T\\)

I'm a girl from the Netherlands and I love drawing... I love making up my own characters... I have my own manga/comic (since I don't really draw a typical style manga, I often just call it my 'comic' xD) It's called Jinsei no Minna (JnM for short) and most of my drawing will probably be related to it. I love making up projects for JnM and I'm writing individual stories for all of my characters before starting on the general story.
Check out my blog for more information on what I'm doing :D
