Still in the airport though…waiting for my ride. Once I get home I’ll post pictures and write a really, really long text post about my trip.
So…I guess I managed to get myself three RusGer doujins and a RusGer novel, two EruNile doujins and one EruNile novel, one NaiRi doujin, one MikeRi doujin and a RivaOruPeto doujin.
I even got myself some Hetalia mercs only because it’s Russia and Germany together. Ah, and also some One Piece stuff…it seems that Osaka is a One Piece place and they’re everywhere. Just cannot not buy it, really.
Yeahh…can’t wait to get home and get my rest ;;w;; super sleepy right now…
Hello ;u; ♥
Sorry I didn’t update much about my Osaka trip in here. I will, once I could get my hands on my laptop back at home.
I guess I’ll share these pictures then…;;;;
I found the Russia and Germany from a small Animate shop in Kyobashi. There’s a lot of other stuff but since it was my first day and seeing how awkward I was with my rusty Japanese, I only managed to buy these. Well…there’s another Animate shop in Den Den Town, so yeah…
The doujins, I bought them in Mandarake Umeda. My initial plan was to find animation art books for a fellow friend, but I couldn’t find any and decided to just…look around…
And I’m glad I did ♥ So yup…I ended up buying one RusGer, one NaiRi, one MikeRi and two EruNai doujins. All of them are marked R18 except the EruNile with the white cover (yes I can assure you the R18 EruNile is hot). I always wanted that NaiRi doujin…can’t believe I got it now!
More pics and updates later, yeah? ;w;
Lately, I’ve been thinking of trying out a genderbent cosplay of Nile Dawk, once I managed to make the normal Nile Dawk work out…
And I want her to wear a cute puffy and fluffy knee-length skirt? ;;u;; I mean, all the accessories are there; the harness, the boots, the unicorn jacket and the red bolo tie…I just want a white/light grey tutu skirt instead of the usual pants, with maybe the brown apron as a decoration ♥ uvu
And while I do like a female Nile with a pixie-cut hair, I think a long feminine hair is just fine and dandy with her ♥ ♥ ♥ u///v///u
I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE HDR EFFECT WAS HARD BUT IT’S ACTUALLY LIKE A 5 STEP THING BESIDES DUPLICATING AND FLATTENING SHIT HOLY FUCK I CAN DO IT. I’M SO EXCITED WOW THAT’S LOVELY and I have to share because no one every taught me this.

MOTHERFUCKER, I’VE BEEN TRYING TO FIND THIS FOR HOURS. TAGG(NG THE SHIT OUT OF THIS.
Hey, if you don’t mind sharing, I’ve always wondered how you got that soft celling look on your characters in your comic. Any tips? I’m currently working on my own comic and I kind of want to go for a less harsh form of cell shading. Thanks!
A couple people have asked about the way I color things and I’ve been meaning to post a tutorial on it :]. I’ve never been too good at describing my process, but I hope this helps!
I’m excited for the Osaka trip next week. I really am. I’ve done my packing and all else regarding the trip, I just need to make sure I get there on time because the flight is like 8 am and the airport takes more or less an hour ride from where I live.
But now I’m just explicitly worried about not updating on tumblr much? ;;w;; I rested and procrastinated too much these few days and I felt somewhat useless.
