Few First Weeks OMG!!!

So finally my summer has passed, and it’s time for a new semester. However, it didn’t goes smoothly as I used to hope. The fact is… these weeks drive me crazy. I can’t believe I have a ton of work that I have to remember and do, along with stupid troubles that are needed to solve. Oh man! It pissed me off. And it causes a lot of stress that has still continued and piled up until today. I got tired for all of this. And more terrible, this gives me a lot of weird dreams at nights that I couldn’t make my sleep soundly. I always space out with no reason and feel boring, plus get impatient more often. I get more lazy, and just want to throw everything away so I don’t have to care about them. At some time like this, what I like is playing games, but the games (well yeah, now I’m playing Elsword Online) doesn’t make me satisfied (In truth, I feel like bursting out because the gameplay now of people is not nice. A lot of weird things happen in the game and people’s gameplay and strategies are quite… stingy) so I don’t usually play games now. How’s about chatting with people? No. I don’t have many friends that I want to talk to and I don’t like communicate directly either. Moreover, when I’m in trouble, I avoid to talk to people whom I feel about like they can’t sympathize with my emotion. Well, yes, it’s horrible to keep silence and bury your own feelings without sharing but for me, it’s better a lot to suffer alone than sharing but after that feeling what you tried to do is in vain. Sometimes I hope to find someone can hear and understand me but ending up finding out that my stories is just a nonsense and annoying story for them, and they even can laugh without thinking and gave me give me stupid advice that is so common and hollow. For them the trouble I have is just a trivial matter but for me, it’s serious. Maybe I’m quite strict but who knows, the serious side in me is something that helped me until now, to gain respect (perhaps it’s just my thought).

That’s why after all that, I ended up letting myself engulf in my passion of drawing. I use most of my free time at home to draw, to sketch, and to CG. When I do that, I feel like I can live and be optimist that I can let my troubles pass through and be solved later. It may sound like stupid and daydreaming but that’s my way. I don’t care if people like them or not. I feel comfortable and I’m pleased to live in ‘my world’.

 

So, I think we should end the story of mine here. I have something to show in this blog, or what I could do in my last days of summer. I love them.

First, my new ID for DA gallery. I know it’s not so nice and the line is not flexible or something like that but at least, it’s not so bad. Yeah, I’m drawing myself but of course in real life, I’m not so beautiful or cute like that (just so-so^^;). To be honest, I’m more like a tomboy. I like simple appearance and strong thought and personality. I like coolness, and people say that my face is quite poker too, or emotionless Lol. This pic, I just wanted to try the sparkling eyes that’s seen very often in shoujo manga, but since I draw boys and action more, it has the sense of shounen more instead. And the BG, just love coloring circles.

 

Second, oh my, this is the mark of my improvement this year:

I lost my original size at first, but fortunately, I had taken a photo of the WIP screen so I still got the lineart to color Lol, and it even turned out more impressive than I thought. Well, this is an art-trade for AlicePyxis, one of my DA friends. I wanted to draw my RF and her CN in a soft romantic scene and I was so satisfied because finally I could draw my in-game model (thought it’s not full body but I think it’s better). It didn’t took me so much time either, thought it has some difficult spots to CG. And I got better in BG and effect too. I just testing brushes on SAI and use a little trick on Elements 9 to emphasize the light source, and then it became extremely good. I was even more happy when people like it. Well, it’s the first time I have so many favorite adding in a very short time like this one. Thanks to this time drawing, I learn a lot of new things in making good effect and using colors.

 

And the third. Hah, a WIP from a long time ago that I used to post my 50% WIP here in one of my blog. It’s a meme that I really really wanted to do, and I like it because it has been a long time since I last draw… like this. They are all my very first OC when I started liking to do design by myself, mostly because of the inspiration from MMZ and MMZX series. When I drew them, I felt like I could see my old days and my old passion again, from the days I used pencil to the time I first got my tablet and used it until the day I ‘made friend’ with my current Intuos 4. For me they are the best designs that I used to do and create, and to be honest, though now my skill is better a lot than before but I still feel hard when drawing them Lol (dunno why but I always make silly mistakes^^;). I love them!

 

 

Yes, and it’s the last pic of my summer. I completed it one day before the first days I went back to school. Of course now I’m still drawing but for this post, I think it’s enough.

Chat about Elsword. And What I Disliked in Those Passing Weeks

It’s been several weeks passed but I still feel some excitement when seeing this screenshot  again

Let me explain more for people who don’t play this wonderful game (in my opinion at this moment only. Well, I will talk more about this later). It’s a small event in Elsword to welcome Hamel’s Prince Chung, the newest character that makes appearance in NA version. It allow players to have full set of ArchAngel when they connect each character to the game in 60 minutes and the set will last in… one day. Well, yeah, one day, and it sucks in some opinions, because people wants it lasts longer (maybe a few days). As for me, I’m just feel quite disappointed when it disappear. ArchAngel is one of the Ice Burner set, which means the players must use K-ching (purchased by real cash) to get the full costume in a dump gamble (well, I hate fortune game). And because it’s quite hard to obtain full set, the status of each parts and together are really cool. That’s why people, especially the players who don’t have K-ching and fortune want this. Besides, because it’s an Ice Burner set, the design of it is very nice and remarkable like the other sets, and as for me, I like it because it looks elegant.

Btw, I still feel satisfied when catching that screenshot for all four of my characters. I think it’s ok for my Raven with his Gray Wolf set (though I don’t like the hair style much Lol). Oh, and my Chung looks cute in his ArchAngel. He’s a good character, though sometimes I see his back wide-opened in some of his combos, though it’s not really a big problem. I decided to choose Shooting Guardian job for him, which means he will advance into Deadly Chaser later (at the time I write this post, he’s lv35 now *heh*). I’m quite lazy for Rena and especially Eve, when she now needs her second and third unlock skills, which quests are really cruelly hard Q_Q

As I mentioned, I don’t have K-ching to buy cool outfits for play Ice Burner, so I just end up with normal outfits (Well, it’s not interesting because it make my characters look like every one’s). But one thing I like in Elsword is they allow people to try the K-ching costumes and take screenshot with it Lol, so I got some ‘cheat’ here. Hah, just joking. I just try and wish someday my other characters can look like these

 

My Eve (Code Nemesis):

 

My Rena (Combat Ranger):

 

 

My Chung (Shooting Guardian):

 

Oh, I forgot about my main and dear Raven (Reckless Fist) but he’s like that a long time ago Lol

Yeah, that’s just for his PvE and PvP (more stat Lol), but I still like he looks like this more (I like his original black-white hair very much^^)

For this model of him, I’ve made an art trade with one of my DA friends (she played Elsword after I recommended her^^) but it’s just for his half-up. I want to draw more for his body when I have time because he’s hard to draw and also because of his outfit’s complex details (actually it’s not so complex like Ice Burner sets but I still feel sometimes it’s harder to draw). For the other characters, I will consider it later (well, still hate complex details though I always put so much in my design and drawing =.=)

 

Btw, in these passing weeks, I’ve drawn something new:

The render version:

This is originally for a fan contest on Elsword NA forum. I just drew it for fun (actually for trying drawing Eve) and for luckiness but after everything, I must say that the hosts had no taste in drawing and artworks. They chose a normal artwork with no cute, no exact anatomy (though I admit that mine is not so exactly too because I didn’t take serious and forcus so much when doing something for people) and poor effects to win the contest OMG. However, I can’t blame them because each person has their own opinions about art, and bad judgement or good judgement depended on people’s eyes, what they experience and their knowledge… So, if they have bad or poor view, it’s natural, and nothing is wrong with their ‘silliness’. What I feel is just regret because it wasted my time.

 

Another artwork based on Elsword style is this one:

One day I had an idea that what if I change OC/FC based on MMZX to Elsword style because I see some similarity in the style at the beginning when I first see Elsword’s arts. Yeah, they have some association, despite Elsword’s style and designs follow more the fantasy theme and have a lot of details comparing to MMZX. But they two have good colors with high contrast and the feeling is quite the same. That’s why I want to try. First, I wanted to change my Fawnix Sky into 2nd job Elsword’s class, but his hair and face was a problem (don’t know why but I usually have more problems when drawing my own characters than doing with the others’ ones T_________T) and I stuck with some weird ideas that lacked of his own personality and characteristic, so I gave up and changed the design into one of my DA friend’s FC, Loran, and it seemed to fit him more. However, I have no information about this FC (I don’t create him so… of course) and ridiculously, the owner has no opinion at all (what a bad OC/FC creator!) except I thought that this Loran uses guns as his weapon (just guessing from the original ZX design), so I have no idea to give him a job name like I like to do and it made me less excited when completed (what I like is just my skill improvement in drawing complexity and armor). Indeed, I feel quite nonsense when finished the lineart.

 

That’s all I want to say, just feel downer and downer because of scrap stuff. I need to do something for myself later

New Artworks These Weeks

I’m being addicted to an anime called Nurarihyon no Mago these days. That’s why I haven’t had time (well, just an nonsense excuse reason I’ve got here^^) to write any post. Nah, it’s true that I’m enjoying my summer break, but I have so many things in my head that I want to do them all, and the result is, I don’t have time for every thing. Indeed, sometimes I think I’m a greedy person, or to be exact, a perfectionist and a workaholic. I always have a lot of ideas, so many that I can’t decide which one I should do first, and once I start to do something with that idea, I want the result I gain is at least acceptable. I usually set a high standard and get myself busy with it in oder to  feel that I don’t waste time in this life, or to let myself not think about what I don’t want to think or about negative things, so I can find a better way to deal with my real problem later… Of course what I do is what I want to do, and I rarely force myself to do what I don’t like if it’s not an obligation or a duty that necessary to do for my and the others’ sakes (sometimes it becomes my disadvantage^^;).

K, that’s time for a little chit-chat. Btw, let’s change the atmosphere. I will show you something that I did in these weeks’ mean time. Another artworks of mine. I just like to do this, drawing, painting… It makes me more love myself and be more optimistic. This time I want to do something different. I want to try other kinds of brush. Like I told you, I’m watching Nurarihyon no Mago now, and I was interested in the prologue scene when they introduce Nurarihyon. That’s the scene they draw in Chinese/Japanese brush style, and I like it. So I tried to analyze it and make a brush to see if it’s similar to what they used in the scene. And the result is like this:

Unfortunately, it’s not so look-a-like Lol, because I used ‘crayon’ and the brush ‘Paper’ with some adjustment for this, while in the original picture it looks exact like the traditional Japanese painting. I guess I should try another brush for the next time. Hope it will be better. Btw, I like this time’s artwork, seems to be I’ve got something new and different from the previous times. I’m glad and I want to try it more. Ah, and if anybody want to see the original picture that I based on, here it is. Well, good for a comparison:

From Nurarihyon no Mago series (Translation: Nurarihyon’s grandson. English release: Nura: Rise of the yokai clan). I think this guy looks cool^^

Oh, and about the character in my pic. I chose my old Arez (full name is Arez Tigrismachiney =>quite long and weird for a name eh^^;;) to test the new style this time. It’s been a long time since I last drew him, cuz I want to find some way to change my drawing style for this FC. This time, I love to draw his eyes (I rarely draw small and sharp eyes like that), but I failed at making him look like a boy. Talking more about this, this FC is an murderous assassin in spite of his childish appearance (Actually he’s not a child. There’s a story behind this and a reason why he keeps this appearance though his age and mind are the same as an adult). That’s why I want him to look like a child with a cold and heartless eyes to show his dangerous and emotionless… and it becomes the hardest part when drawing this guy, and I haven’t succeeded in this=.= I need to try more. However, I think this time when I choose the color and the CG style, it’s somehow suitable for him. Yeah, a lot (it’s hide some wrong point when I draw his hair, which I used to be complained that it’s quite complicated^^;). And I like how I made the splashing blood. Some times I enjoy doing this, don’t know why. Well, it’s not so hard to do the effect, but to make it ‘logical’, it needs to be quite careful.

Ah, and the last week is for another Eldoodle. This is the pic for this time:

I made it quite fast, and my new record is 3 hours. Indeed I didn’t intend to do the entry this time, cuz I was so busy with anime Nurarihyon Lol (again^^) that I wanted to skip it. But at the last minutes I still did it in my traditional Elsword CG, and it was surprise that I made it rapidly. Well, the reason was I want the K-ching Lol, and I did really received 1000 thanks to this. I used them and my previous K-ching for a costume for my dear Raven and buy a slot for my incoming Chung Seiker (I intend to do the job of Deadly Chaser when I get him). However, I still, in my opinion, hate Aisha very much, maybe the most imbalance character who is just good at spamming and trolling and without playing for real. So, that’s one of the reasons why I don’t like drawing Aisha, and if it’s not because of the K-ching… Yeah, I didn’t put so much effort into this.

And finally, this is my latest picture. Like I said above, I really like Nurarihyon no Mago, so I want to make some fan arts for this. And I want to draw Kubinashi, who is my favourite male character after Nura Rikuo. I think that guy is cool, not only his background story, but I like the way his head floating above his body *Lol* (he has no neck, of course). Quite creepy, but quite cute, especially when his head out of his body and rebound like a ball *lmao*. And his technique with strings is something that interests me. Well, it’s hard to believe a character with string attack can become one of the most dangerous, but this guy do and it’s impressive when he put his ‘Fear’ into strings to make them like chains. And, because of that, I like him (just to find a remarkable character here)

Well, from the previous time I drew Arez, I think I saw more in the style of Chinese brush, so I want to test here. At the first time, I drew this picture of Kubinashi as a doodle, but since I want to do something more, I put the lineart. And I was interested in it because the line with the random difference in thickness is like a practice with the wrist and to check the quality of tablet. Of course with an Intuos 4, there’s no doubt about the quality (it’s expensive like hell but it worths for my money^^). The main point here is the wrist. It creates the different pressures depended on how you control it. And I was excited. But because I haven’t done it quite often, it took time quite much. However, each time I do something new, I learn a lot, and I can make better and faster next time. So I think I just keep trying

Well, and I may color it in the new way if I have enough inspiration lol.

Oh, and the last thing is, Nurarihyon no Mago is a good series. If you like cool characters and a quite crazy and weird plot of demon, you should give it a try. It won’t make you disappointed.

My First Commission for Elsword Lol

Ah, it seems to be a long time without a post, eh. I guess it’s more than 1 week since I posted the last one. The reason is I had an art commission on Elsword Online NA forum and this guy wanted me to draw his own Elsword model. So, I spent a whole week just for it. Indeed, this is my first art commission I’ve ever done. I used to open a commission slot on Deviantart but I was not lucky in this kind and it seemed to be failed completely Lol. But talking about this, if this, I mean drawing work, is a business and all for business, I don’t care about this. I’ve just finished what my clients want, though sometimes I don’t have interest in it (well, work can ruin what is your hobby and you may don’t have any inspiration with it. Why? Because it becomes your obligation and agreement) and I guess it just waste of my time and gray matter with no specialty or improvement. That’s why I’m rarely satisfied myself when drawing request (oh, except for my close friends. Their designs are something I may find interest) and I do all I can to deny it. However, the thing that helps me to do what I dislike is the payment. Yeah, payment can be counted here. That’s always the main point of work.

Of course this commission is not out of that rule. Still, I find some interest in this. Maybe because I like these sets in Elsword games: Salavatore and ArchDevil. To be honest, I always want an Ice Burner set for my character(s). However, it’s so cruel that they use K-ching meaning the real cash here. I have some K-ching too, mainly from the contests on the main site, but when I use Ice Burner, what I get is something quite stupid. I mean, I don’t need them much. So, maybe that helped me get inspiration and spent my last week for it. And when it was done… I like it. Look at the finished artwork, I think my skill in CG following Elsword style has improved. I really like the hair coloring, though in my opinion, I’m still fond of spiky hair more Lol. The details on the dress was quite good too. Oh, I love the color, dark red and black, with yellow hems. And the fun thing I think is sometimes something was made carelessly might be better a lot and save more time than doing carefully. That’s when I want to talk about my OC/FC artworks Lol. For example, my Prime Marauder was just drew in waist-up simple stance. However, it tool me more than 1 week and til now I haven’t finished it OMG… I couldn’t find a way to boost my speed up, and that’s why my original works get to nowhere *sigh*.

The last thing I thought but it made me quite disappointed is why I could draw people model but not mine. I mean, I love my Raven and his design now, but I couldn’t draw him seriously. I couldn’t make an emotion or a stance that I want him to be in my artwork. Maybe because he’s hard to draw, but maybe because I’m not good. Oh my, I stuck in my perfection much so I couldn’t do what I like and care. How’s boring!

Ok, this is the result of the commission:

Guess I have to relax and use time to care for my stuff now.

B-day Gift Art Reply and My Entry for Eldoodle This Week

Oh Gosh, I was so surprised. This is my late B-day gift from one of my favorite artists on Deviantart, and also my friend, AlicePyxis. I haven’t thought that she would give me an awesome gift like this^^

Well, I like this gift much, and it’s out of my guess too. I used to think that she would use her ZX style to draw my FC like she used to do with my previous art gift and art trade. Anyway, I think it’s ok when she used her own style. It gave me a new sense when seeing Clair Draver in this way, and I see that she has improved her skills a lot.

 

And about me. I just finished this one last night.

This is for Elsword Eldoodle weekly contest, and I spent 7h hours this. Fortunately, this time I was not too late (the previous one of Ancient Phoru was submitted 2 days after the deadline Lol). But unluckily, this time my drawing was really careless. I like the character model of the owner but it’s quite hard to draw because of many details, and I didn’t have time (I have to take care a lot of artworks, and the most recently is my Prime Marauder one), so I was quite hurry with this. That’s why my line was not good and the artwork looked like my drawing a few years ago OMG. The only thing that maybe I like best was the background, and it’s quite surprising that I just spent 30 minutes to do it. However, this is just a doodle, so I think it’s ok, though spending 7 hours is quite slow for doodling I guess.

[FC] Cross: Prime Marauder – upper concept –

Oh my, after several months stuck in a lot of ideas (and most of them were really weird and nonsense), I could came up with this design. Finally…

(Note: Something came into my head with his collar, so I decided to test and see which of them is cooler and better.)

This is the concept for one of the 1st jobs change for my Elsword FC named Cross Shievaro. The name of the job is Prime Marauder. The basic design for his original non-job was done last year, but it had some problems with the stance and lineart (the only thing I was satisfied was its CG), so I made another one with waist-up pose. However, I had another mistake when adding so many details and the way I drew was actually used for 2nd jobs design. That’s why I failed again.  I wanted to redesign him but I was so lazy and busy, so let’s see if I have a chance later.

Btw, I had idea for his 1st job design and backstory, so I did it as soon as I could see the image in my head. It took me a while though because of some reasons. First I was very confused because I had seen the art of Grand Chase Lass, and its details were neat. I was obsessed by it because my Cross is also a Marauder which is quite similar to an assassin (actually his 2nd job in this Prime path is an Assassin already^^;), and it’s become my problem. However, because Cross is FC for Elsword so I  had to use another style. Moreover, I don’t want to be a copycat and always want my characters to have their own styles and features suitable for their characteristics, so I stopped that idea (it’s quite hard though). Then I had his image in my head, but still hadn’t figured out how his outfit looked like. I later thought of Marchen of Sound Horizon and Assassin’s Creed, and Cross’s image was clearer to me, so I started my work with the first step was organizing the details of him. While doing it, I deleted some details to make the design more simple. It’s not easy. What I stuck at that time was the harmonization of his pose and details. I didn’t want his design to be so simple because it will ruin my previous Aerial Assassin concept (I created his 2nd job before doing this), nor make it complicated because that’s not for the 1st job traditional design. That’s always my problem when designing 1st job Q_Q

At last I did it, but I didn’t have time to make the full body concept (and it’s harder too). Another reason is with this angle it’s really hard to show the full body with perfect proportion (it’s an angle that I rarely draw and when I tried to sketch the full body, it became weird), so instead of drawing the full proportion, I saved it for another canvas of him that I made earlier but just finished a part of his head (I’m still practicing how to draw his eyes look the same way as other Elsword official characters Lol), and focused on his outfit details.

And when I had made his visual design, I had the idea for his job’s background. It’s the continuation of his backstory that I made when I finished his non-job and posted it on my gallery. Actually if you play Elsword, you will know that there are 2 (but now is 3 Lol) paths for a character’s job. I made Cross follow that rule too. His 1st jobs are Prime Marauder (this design), Harsh Marauder and Trickster Marauder. The other two I will make later because now I don’t have so many ideas (I got the basic but… the same problem as Prime Marauder concept). Ok, stop talking about this. This is the background story for Prime Marauder. I like this story because it may be the deepest one between three backgrounds. I tried everything to make it unique and not sound-like Raven’s story, and I think I did it.

 

So, the Backstory of Prime Marauder:

 

To become a slaver of devil, that’s the thing which Cross had never wanted.

Every time he thought about his past, every night he submerged in the nightmares, he was haunted by what he had done.

The crimes he had committed was a truth that he couldn’t deny or run away, so he accepted to face it, even if it meant the punishment and the pain he suffered was more terrible than a torture.

But Cross was not a person who just knew how to regret yet did nothing. He always remembered his duty as a Guardian of El Stone and he would do every thing he could to restore the peace and the order in Elios as well as redeemed for this sins.

However, the evil that lurked into him constantly tried to take over his soul again when it had a chance, and Cross feared that. He did everything to resist it, but the wound in the past that Fantome had caused to his soul was too serious and it might never be healed. Moreover, Cross’s power now was not enough for him to destroy Fantome, nor even protected himself from being engulfed in darkness, and he could lose himself again, forever.

He didn’t want the tragedy to be replay, nor became the enemy of the world. He didn’t want anybody to sacrifice…

Fortunately, at the moment he struggled with his another ego and almost lost, the alchemists in Elios saved his life by inventing a potion that could keep his mind stable, so he could maintain his true self. However, he acknowledged that this wouldn’t last long because Fantome was not a normal devil and its pwer was incredible that could easily defeat him anytime. Despite of that, the Elios people helped him a lot to buy time for him and he didn’t want to waste it. While training hard to keep his spirit strong at the same time as fighting against the devil, Cross was searching for a way to restore his power because he knew that was the only way he could win this battle.

Cross’s combat skills and knowledge had been expert for a long time he was in battlefield, and now with his hard training, his special abilities and potential in melee combat was awaken again. Combining with the demon’s power that he channeled it into his advantage, his strength now was even beyond the best marauders and assassins in Elios. And with his title “Prime Marauder”, Cross became a rival that his enemies should beware and scared. Watch out for the daggers danced their deadly melody of lament!

 

It sounds good, doesn’t it? Because Prime Marauder is the closest job to Cross’s story, I put hard on it and tried not to make him a typical pure hero like Elsword or Blade Master Raven. Yeah, he’s still in the way of a dark hero. I think it’s cooler to make the story like this, so it will match with his Aerial Assassin’s backstory later. And this is more little hint about it. This job’s backstory focuses on the part of his characteristic of maturity, coldness, complexity and mystery (the other characteristics still appear but not so clear as these), while in the opposite Harsh Marauder, we can see a heartless, evil, rebellious and warlike Cross. The last one Trickster Marauder I haven’t figured it out but it may follow the path of his teasing, energetic and wicked side. However, at this time I want to focus on the Prime first, so I can make him better.

ZX Gigamix _ Track 6 translation

Another translation for Rockman ZX Soundsketch ZX Gigamix , also made by my friend Venom00 (on DeviantArt). This time he translated Track 6: ZX Portrait_ Death and Witch, which is one of my favorite track in the CD. The track focuses on Prometheus and Pandora at the time after the final Serpent incident in ZX game. I like this track not only because of the voice but also because of these duo (yeah, they are cool like hell^^)

The other tracks may be translated, or may be not. I don’t know because the Soundsketch-es are full of noise, which makes the voices harder to hear, so my friend is not sure about  doing on these. But, I hope to see the translation of them someday.

 

The drama track from original ZX Gigamix:

 

The translation:

Citizen A: “Arrrgggh help me!!!”
Citizen B: “Run! It’s the Irregular!”
Pandora: “Wait for me, onii-chan!”
Prometheus: “Hurry up! The Irregular is coming! …Let’s hide in here!”
Pandora: “Onii-chan…I’m scared…!”
Prometheus: “Quiet! It’s gone… Let’s get out of here…! Ah…!”
Pandora: “Ah wait! …Huaaa!”
Prometheus: “Arg what are you doing?! Let’s go!”
Pandora: “Yes…!”
Prometheus: “Shit… We’re surrounded! Shit… Shit!!!”

Computer: “Restored cluster of memory found. Establishment of predetermined link verified.
Target cluster of resistance produced. Temporary mind stabilization of subject executed.
Maintenance completed. Opening capsule.”
Prometheus: “A dream, huh…”
Pandora: “Good morning, Prometheus.”
Prometheus: “Pandora… You woke up earlier huh. Shit… This healing capsule is
uncomfortable as hell. Couldn’t that Albert at least notice that?
Pandora: “You had that dream?”
Prometheus: “Yeah. Kinda… How long have we been asleep for? And the situation?”
Pandora: “A lot has happened after Serpent was defeated by Model ZX. Legion is making
its move after the disaster of Serpent Company.”
Prometheus: “Albert is covering things up faster than we thought. Those Trinity geezers
are unexpectedly good.”
Pandora: “The next mission briefing from albert has yet to come. What should we do?”
Prometheus: “That bastard is not making a move huh. Even after testing Model V on
Serpent, or making enemy of Model ZX… He must have noticed by now. That’s
not all the Ultimate RockMan should have. That bastard is still continuing
with this game.
Pandora: “The Game of Destiny…to find the Ultimate RockMan. The battle of the RockMen…”
Prometheus: “Right… If that’s the case, what we have to do is already decided. Let’s start
looking for the remaining Model Vs. Pandora, gather all the information on the rest
of Model Vs and put them on the monitor.”
Pandora: “Understood.”

Soldier A: “Take cover! Reinforcement is coming! …Shit. We got the readings of some kind of
energy but…what’s with this type of Irregular? What the hell are those mercenary
we hired doing?! Can’t you do something as their leader?!”
Soldier B: “Not good. They’re not responding. With this many Irregulars, I think the mercenery
are done for already. We should just give up and run!”
Soldier A: “Don’t fuck with me! This work… This investigation… Are you saying we should
just run when we’re this close?! Arrggghh!!!”
Soldier B: “Hey…get a grip!”
Soldier A: “Sh…it… Is it it…?!”
Prometheus: “Too many…you Irregular punks. Clear a path to Model V already!”
Soldier B: “He defeated the Irregular…with just one hit… What power.”
Soldier A: “I-I-I don’t know who you are but please help us! I’ll give you money or whatever
you want! At this rate we don’t stand a chance against those Irregulars!”
Prometheus: “Hm… You trash.”
Soldier A: “Why…?”
Prometheus: “You’re just another enemy. Model V attracts Irregulars. The Irregulars draw
out the new RockMan. You trash who can’t stand against these Irregulars have no place
in this game!”
Soldier B: “Reaper… Grim Reaper…! It’s the Grim Reaper!!! ARGGHHH!!!”
Prometheus: “Engage them already, Pandora.”
Pandora: “Take this.”
Prometheus: “Now…make way so I can get to Model V! You Irregular pieces of shit! Hahahahah!
Now come! Let’s meet again in this game!”
Pandora: “When that time comes, destruction will also come. Everything… Everything, will be destroyed.”
Prometheus: “Just you wait, Albert…and you RockMen! Isn’t this fun…? No corpses… Just a game of dolls!!!”

ZX Gigamix _ Track 13 translation

This is the translation for Track 13 of Rockman ZX Soundsketch ZX Gigamix named ZX Portrait: Girls Bravo.

My partner did this, not me (I don’t know Japanese^^), and I appreciate his work because I haven’t seen any translation for this on the Internet. I wonder, why don’t people translate it? Maybe because it’s too long and has a lot of voices and noises in the scene when Aile, Prairie and Fleuve was on the main street, which made the track quite complicated. Despite it, this is really a good drama track for the series Rockman/Mega Man ZX because of the attractive voices and the moods setting in it, and it also extends the storyline of ZX franchise, explaining more about what happened in the transition of ZX and ZX Advent. I really like this track and have been looking for the translation of it but there’s nothing on the net, until I got this from my friend. And he also promise to translate the other ones, which made me excited. I hope he will not forget it (well, he’s absentminded sometimes I guess^^).

 

The drama track from original ZX Gigamix:

 

And here is the translation (woa, it’s long. Well, because the track is more than 9 minutes…O.o) :

Prometheus: “Persistent, aren’t you? However…don’t underestimate Model V.”
Pandora: “You can’t interfere.”
Aile: “That’s my line… Go!”
Pandora: “Model V is…destroyed…!”
Prometheus: “Tsk she’s really done it… Let’s go, Pandora. A scrapped Model V is of no use anymore. Until then…Rockman Model ZX.”
Pandora: “Farewell.”
Aile: “Ah… Geez what’s wrong with them…!”

Prairie: “With this…Aile has successfully destroyed the tenth of Model V. We understand that Prometheus’s goal is to assemble all the Model Vs but…it’s unlikely that we have defeated them. Apart from this, although there have been so many battles already…they’re clearly keep Aile alive on purpose. But why…?”
Fleuve: “Um…Prairie-san. You’ve been researching for ten hourse straight already. Please rest a little bit…”
Prairie: “I’m sorry, Fleuve. I still can’t gather all the pieces together. I should keep going for a bit longer.”
Fleuve: “Y-yes…”
Prairie: “For what purpose is Prometheus trying to collect the Model Vs? How many Model Vs are there really? …Not good. I finally have more old data but…why?”
Fleuve: “Hmm…this is a problem.”
Aile: “Fleuve!”
Fleuve: “Ah Aile-san.”
Aile: “Is Prairie…still doing research?”
Fleuve: “I think Prairie-san has been uneasy ever since we got more information
about Model V after the Serpent incident.”
Aile: “But then…wouldn’t she collapse at this rate?”
Fleuve: “That’s right. What to do…”
Fleuve&Aile: “Hmmm…”
Aile: “That’s it!”
Fleuve: “Aile-san!”
Aile: “Hey Prairie, let’s go out and play for a bit!”
Prairie: “Aile… I’m sorry. Right now I’m composing a mission plan from your report.
We can’t get our hopes up just yet after Model V’s awakening in that incident
with Serpent. The promised spring thunder… Something big is going to happen…
I’m getting this uneasy feeling. I’m just not in the mood to be worried or glad at all.”
Aile: “That’s why! …Because you’re precisely not in the mood that you don’t need to
feel not in the mood right now! Now just go! You get it, right?”
Prairie: “Ah wai- don’t pull me so hard! …But where are we going?”
Aile: “Just right when I want to see all the stuff on the main street… Let’s go and see
them now! It’ll be fun. I’ll choose something nice for you to wear!”
Prairie: “E-eh…?”

Clerk: “What do you think about this one?”
Aile: “See? You really look good in that dress! …Yep, you’re cute!”
Prairie: “C-cute?”
Fleuve: “Oh man you’re pretty, Prairie-san!”
Prairie: “Am I…?”
Aile: “It’s decided then! Um Miss clerk? I want this one!”
Clerk: “I’m sorry. This item is currently out of stock. New ones of this size
is only available next year.”
Aile: “Eh?! For a whole year?!”
Clerk: “My deepest apology. We’ve been through a lot after the Serpent Company
incident. Surely you’ve heard of that?”
Prairie: “I see… I’m sorry. We’ll come back at another time. Let’s go, Fleuve.”
Fleuve: “Prairie-san…”
Aile: “No way…”

Clerk: “Thank you very much.”
Aile: “Hey Prairie…”
Prairie: “I’m sorry Aile. I’ve seen how much the people suffered earlier. It’s just
not the right time after all… Right now the researching department is downloading
the data from Model H (Hunter in background: “Ashe! Hurry it up, will ya?) and other
LiveMetals. We don’t know much about the situation revolving around Model V
(Aile: “”What should we do Fleuve? Isn’t this bad?!”) without his data.
(Fleuve: “I know but…!”) And…we (Waitress: “Welcome back, Master!”) still don’t
know Prometheus’s goals. That’s right… Prometheus used to attack the Guardian Base…”
Ashe: “Bosh!”
Citizen A: “Hey. Aren’t those two look strange?”
Citizen B: “That old man somehow is really weird… (Fleuve: “Aile-san, please calm down!”)
Is he her lover?”
Citizen B: “Are you a moron? The hell is that? (Fleuve: “Right Prairie-san?”)”
Aile: “Prairie?”
Prairie: “Indeed I don’t know about the replacement. Day after day I just think about the
world’s peace in vain. I can’t dress fashionably… Indeed I can’t do that. But I… But I…!”
Citizen A: “What’s wrong with you? Do you have some business with us?”
Aile: “Oopsie sorry! It’s nothing! Sorry for getting in the way!”
Fleuve: “Now let’s go, Prairie-san!”
Citizen A: “What was that all about? But…that girl is really cute! (Ashe: “That’s why I said
it’s troublesome! Hey are you even listening?!”)”
Citizen B: “Really peaceful, no?”

Waitress: “Welcome! May I ask how many of you are there?”
Fleuve: “Um three people.”
Aile: “Prairie…(Waitress: “Please come this way!”) Um…”
Prairie: “I’m sorry. I should have been more careful but…”
Aile: “…You messed up again?”
Prairie: “Eh?”
Aile: “Earlier you just made a mistake for nothing. When they’re at their limit, it’s fine for
girls to laugh more, you know.”
Prairie: “But…I’m trying my best so that everyone can have peace…”
Aile: “But even if there is peace in the world, it would be meaningless if you can’t be happy.
That’s why you…everyone of the Guardians should live each moments to the fullest.”
Prairie: “Aile…”
Aile: “Seeing you messed up out of nothing earlier…it just felt painful. At this rate, you’ll
forget how to laugh.”
Prairie: “…”
Aile: “That’s why… Laugh, okay? You’re really cute when you smile. That guy earlier said so too!”
Prairie: “Is…that so…?”
Aile: “Was it just my imagination then?”
Prairie: “Geez, Aile…”
Aile: “Yep, that! A smile!”
Fleuve: “Sorry for making you two wait!”
Aile: “Thanks, Fleuve.”
Prairie: “Hm? Aile did you cut yourself?”
Aile: “Ah this? It’s nothing much. Apply a little cream and it’ll be fine… That’s right did you
hear? Recently there’s this type of cream that would clean the wound and get it healed
immediately. Incredible, right?”

Prairie: “Aile let’s go. Let’s go get that cream.”
Aile: “Eh? Ah sorry. I was just thinking about that…”
Prairie: “Erring is not good. Girls should be selfish once in a while, right?”
Aile: “Ehe I’m glad… Thanks. Then should I get you something too? Recently you’ve been getting
cuter and cuter.”
Prairie: “Really? But I’m not all that fashionable…”
Aile: “It’s alright. I’m not that cool either. Ehe… Let’s go.”
Fleuve: “Ah? Um (Prairie: “Hey Aile, how much do you know about that cream?”) how about the bill?!
Wait you two please wait (Aile: “Hm I’m not sure… Let’s go get it together then!”)!”
Waitress: “Sir? Shall I charge you now?”
Fleuve: “Ah that’s… Umm… Prairie-san!”

Prairie: “I’m sure the day we have to fight will come again. Even until now, I still don’t know if
the battles have started or not. But… Just for today…I can act like a normal girl…right?
…Thank you, Fleuve. Thank you, Aile.”

And I also had the illustration for this track from the Gigamix booklet:

Wow, what I can say is: “Kawaii desu”. Really love the drawing of Hitoshi Ariga (he’s the author of Mega Man Megamix and Gigamix manga, and also the illustrator who made the cover of Mega Man Tribute official hardcover^^)

Oh My, Late Again.

This was made for Elsword NA weekly drawing contest, but unfortunately, I was late (2 days after the deadline OMG=.=), so good bye my dream of K-ching Lol.

I like this pet Ancient Phoru in Elsword (and also love the game so much^^). Don’t know why. Just because I think it’s cool, especially its special kinds for ArchAngel set and ArchDevil set. It somehow, well, looks like a small horse I think. However, I don’t play with real money (K-ching) so having one is just my dream (and I’m lazy to raise it Lol).

However, it’s not my most favorite pet in the game. I guess maybe I like Wyvern pet more because it’s more like a dragon, and I like dragon so much. Unfortunately, it hasn’t released in NA server yet. Well, long way to wait. That’s everything I can do now. I also like Mystic, a type of pet looks like a cute robot lolita, but when I heard its noise in the game when it spun, I rethink, and somehow I felt quite annoyed. Of course I don’t hate it.

And about this pic, nothing’s more special than a rush artwork, or a doodle in my opinion (actually the time is so much for a doodle Lol). I completed it in 4 or more hours, with a rush lineart for the Ancient Phoru and quick CG-ing. I don’t have time, especially when stuck in the final exam><. Well, I think it’s not a bad thing for a quick artwork, though in my perspective, it’s worse than my other artworks when I worked seriously. I couldn’t really make a background so I borrowed the scene of Ruben instead and draw something for the grass. And, it’s ashamed that I didn’t know how to draw a tree. I’ve read the tutorial befor but I couldn’t imagine and do it because it took so much time and patience and I didn’t know exactly the method. I felt so bad, and it plus more to my mood these days. Well, I should try harder and get my optimism again or something will be worse.

Something before the final exam. Meme half progress.

Oh well, long time have no post. I haven’t forgotten or abandoned this blog, really, I don’t intended to do that. Just because I have a bad cold these days and it makes me very tired. Plus, my final exam is near, so I want to save time to focus on it. Actually I know that this examination is nothing to me because these class I’m learning are very easy, but I still want to be hard-working to improve my English (though the fact is that I’m not so really hard^^;). I decided to skip classes in the next semester, so I asked my teacher for giving me the permission to take the placement test again cuz I wanted to learn in the class that  fit to my level. And the result of the test was really good. I skipped 4 classes and jumped to the highest class that the test allowed me to pass. I was happy but I was also worry because the level of the class I got is quite high comparing to my level now I think. However, I asked everyone and they encouraged me that I should do what I had from the test and so it gave me more confidence. And because of the grade of the test, my teacher was so kind to offer me a job as a college tutor. I was so glad because I’m crazy to find a part-time job that is suitable for me (well, my health doesn’t allow me to do everything) and now I will have a job I want. I hope that everything will go well because this job is useful to me. I can learn more and have more chance to practice, as well as getting more experience. Well, but that’s the future story. Now I must take care of the final exam first. I don’t want bad grades, so I guess I must push myself more in these days when my head is always in somewhere Lol.

But everything can’t make me stop doing what I like. Well, I use my little free time to draw besides playing Elsword and watching Shining Hearts, though in these days my drawing speed is too bad. However, I manage to get some ideas, but I doubt if I can do them Lol. Well, they’re mostly for my FC Cross/Kurosu. But, leave him behind for the next time. Now I’m happy that I can go the half-way of this (it took me several months I think cuz I don’t have time)

 

I borrowed this meme from the Deviantart and was interested in it. And luckily, my FCs for HE is more than enough for this. However, I want to test a new style so it took me some time. I decided not to use MMZX style but my own style instead. Will continue to work until it finish. So, please see it as a preview (well, 100% is better than 50% zooming, but…^^)
