Fabulous London Comic Con Weekend!

MCM London Comic Con finished last weekend. It was absolutely wonderful!

Thank all the people who visited me and supported my artworks. Your support makes me go further!

I'd like to announce one amazing things happened during this convention which is my latest art print -Betsutengai- got sold! It was high quality print on a semi-glossy photo paper, which made it the best product on my table. I really appreciate and very happy this dear customer liked it and brought it home. Thank you very very much!



There's another special thing happened that I met three Taiwanese girls in this event, one of them was even from the same hometown as me! I'm really happy. :D

I got some interesting commissions like a yaoi request, LoveLive! and a couple of original characters, which were very fun to draw.





Manga portrait is a huge part in the convention, too. Here are my favourite portraits from each day.






At last, I'd like to show you my collection from other artists. They are all very talented and hard working.



This MCM is my last convention this year. Looking forward to seeing you everyone again next year! ^__^

Thunderbolt Fantasy - Twitter sketches bunch

This week I've been drawing Thunderbolt Fantasy doujin comic every evening after work. The CP I'm drawing is 殤不患 x 凜雪鴉 (Shō Fu Kan x Rin Setsu A)♥ This pair is really cute!




If Thunderbolt Fantasy is new to you, feel free to check out its website and PVs and prepare to be amazed!

Okay, come back to my story, it's going to have five pages. There will be a five to six pages sequence after this one. I'm thinking of publishing them to a doujin book in A5 size with total 14-16 pages. Thunderbolt Fantasy is not widely known yet, so I'm not sure if I should publish it. (I'm afraid no one's gonna buy it…) Maybe I'll simply do paid digital download in my Etsy shop.

Anyway, it's a good chance to try out Clip Studio Paint for something I love. I've never used it for comics yet. I'm gonna finish this story first and decide publish thing afterwards. Hope to update soon, and of course I'll translate it to English.☺

Hsiao and Yi (西門笑與西門義)



Last time when I drew "The distance between four and twelve", I was inspired by a series of romance novels written by Yuching. Now I have just drawn another piece inspired by the same novelist but from a different series.

The same thing about the two pairs I drew is they both appear in each series often, but there's never a complete story about themselves. So we (readers) have to find out every paragraphs of them from every books to make a picture of the pairs. The reason why the author felt reluctant to write was because the publisher meant to publish "men and women" romances. Therefore those yaoi kind wouldn't be published and that's why they were hidden in the other books, with the lightest hint.

This picture is called "Hsiao and Yi" which is based on their names: Hsimen Hsiao and Hsimen Yi. Yes, they have the same surname - Hsimen, which means they are brothers, but non-blood related. Because they are adopted kids in Hsimen family. Hsiao is a swordsman and good at martial arts. Yi is a business man. So I drew a sword by Hsiao and a abacus by Yi.

Anyway, those two series are my favourite novels. If possible I want to draw more of them.^__^

I'm now a big fan of Thunderbolt Fantasy as well. So you'll see more of this kind of images coming.^__^

懷著致敬之心,畫了于晴西門家系列的西門笑與西門義。西門家和聶家系列是我最喜歡的小說,現在回味起來還是像當初那樣,喜歡的心情沒有改變。

Betsu Ten Gai

Betsu Ten Gai (蔑天骸) is my favourite character in Thunderbolt Fantasy. Because he is pretty!!!! 

Thunderbolt Fantasy is really well made and fun. The puppets look luxury and elegant. They move smoothly and the fighting scenes are amazing. The puppet masters really put the soul into the puppets bodies. The scenes and decorations are extremely delicate. The voice actors and actresses did great jobs, too. As the facial expression is limited to read from the puppets, the voice acting is relatively important. I really like it in the whole.

The first season has come to an end. I'm excited that there is going to be a second season! Can't wait for it!

If you are new to Thunderbolt Fantasy, here are some pvs to get start. Hope you'll like it, too. :)

重溫…




For English please go to my deviantART: [link]

最近重溫于晴大的聶家系列小說,對聶四和聶十二這一對真是揪心加牽掛加怨念!無限期待于大肯重新執筆將他們的故事完結。對於粉絲們紛紛推測誰男誰女的同時,我的內心毫不妥協地認為從來沒有誰是女生,他們都是男兒身。如果不是何來掙扎?何來看到“斷袖之癖”時反彈如此之大?但是于大表明不寫之餘,連非官方的閒聊口風也如此之緊,時日久了,我真心覺得于大說了他們會有完美結局就已經讓我感到非常欣慰了,細節沒有關係,真的。


我內心的無限懷念逼著我google了許多于粉發表的關於此兄弟的分析加感想,也不放過任何于大提到的關於此二人的文章,終於今天在于大部落格看到一丁點曙光似的蛛絲馬跡!某網友在2012年的發文“夢魂相思”(關於4*12)底下留言寫下自己心得:

性別真是個大問題嗎?于大回應說:

在20年前是個大問題,爆~

在20年後就是芝麻綠豆小問題!

應該說,在20年前這類作品較少見,隨著時代進步,各式題材都出現了,連機器人都可以談戀愛了,我相信在20年前這種稿子是會被退的^^。對,以前我有想寫但被朋友勸阻了。




言下之意就是聶四和聶十二的題材在過去是會被退稿的題材、被勸阻的題材,也就圓了我內心最期盼的那樣子,今日我實在太開心了!(轉~)


我第一次畫聶家系列人物,好緊張~~希望我的四與十二不會讓大家太失望^^


Ps. 由於于晴部落格裡面的聶家番外“夜夢魂牽之十二相思”是比較直白的暗示,所以用了劉過的四字令/醉太平題詞(前面幾句描寫女人容貌的我就拿掉了XD)。原詞:
《四字令/醉太平》
年代:宋 作者: 劉過
情深意真。眉長鬢青。小樓明月調箏。寫春風數聲。思君憶君。魂牽夢縈。翠銷香暖雲屏。更那堪酒醒。

Commissions ready to offer!

I've been thinking of opening commissions online to offer my drawings and hopefully to make a living out of it for a long time. However it is not easy for me because I have a day job and can only draw in spare time. If I have to manage the commission thingy all by myself I'll probably have no time to sleep.XD I need a very organised and easy-to-use platform to run my commission and here Fiverr comes! Fiverr has been in the market for years but I was only introduced to it this year. After months of thinking, I decided to open an account and have a try.

It is really simple to use. You can easily see sample images and compare the packages I'm offering. Now I have Sketch deals and Inking deals. Each deal has three packages: Standard, Premium, and Pro which stand for headshot, half-body, and full-body figure. The package prices and extra costs are clearly listed. So it's easy to know what is the best for you.






Please go to Commissions page for more information.
If you need an image and my art style suits for you, please do not hesitate to make an order.^__^
