Updates (Jul-Aug)

Dear Diary :~  
 
My vacation almost ended, it was a blast! I met many new people and experienced many more feelings. Canada is a beautiful place with never-ending discoveries, moving around was great! I’m happy I’ll be living there soon :D
 
 
News
1)   Collaboration with Mark Crilley:
I never thought this would actually happen, but I have the personality of “let’s give it a chance”. I’m really happy that my work was colored by Youtube most subscribed artist, and a Manga Artist. It’s a great honor. Here is the video:

3)   Fanexpocanada 2012 
Was a wonderful experience, I took a photo with Mr. Stan Lee, the creator of Spiderman/iron man and many others.  I walked to almost all artists in the artist alley, I met some awesome ones. I remember seeing two I knew from the internet who are Shilin and Ocean-chan! By the end of the day, I spent all my money on posters and manga books.
 
4)      Manga
I will soon upload the first chapter on youtube (if allowed by publishing company)
I solved few problems (connections) within the story too. I made it more realistic o.o
 
5)      Youtube

Updates!


Hello all
Hope everyone is doing well!

This, after so much wondering around, will be my land for posting my journals! So let’s start with updates!
My 2nd contest:

Going well so far, I’ve received around 70 entries, some are great while some are less great, but I love how some people joined just for the sake of drawing, that’s the whole point of me making this contest. The selection of winners will be hard but there must be a winner! Check out the contest tab in my website to know more about it!

YouTube:
The latest majority request was Sebastian from kuroshitsuji, I tried to integrate this Anime’s style to the video atmosphere. I am not sure how it turned out but people liked it. For the upcoming videos, have no much plans yet but there will be another watercolor painting video, more of a brush-type thing (Maybe ?)



Manga:
Is going well after major adjustments to the story setting, I will soon upload the first chapter on my website or create a preview video about it on youtube.

T-shirt Shop!
Thanks to the partnership with Spreadshirt, now I have my own T-shirt shop!  You can now have your favorite drawing as a T-shirt (http://sophiechan90.spreadshirt.com/)

Thank you all for the support!
Take care

Update: The end of vacation

Hi everyone,



As my vacation is coming to an end and the classes will soon begin, I would like to take this chance to tell you what I will be doing. I may be a busy person, as some said, but that is my capacity. When you work greater than your own capacity, is when you achieve your dream.


The relaxing weeks I spent in Turkey brought to light integral ideas into my Manga, perhaps it will make my Manga more realistic. But above the great museums, I adored the nature; these are some photos I took:




The following is what I will be doing for the next month:
  1. My site Tutorials
    - Eyes
    - Hair
    - Face
  2. YouTube videos
    - My upcoming competition
    - Speed painting


I take all your comments, critique, and feedback into account, so please feel free to contact me.
Thank you everyone for the support, especially Rin.


With God bless

Sophie

Back on track…

Dear all,


Done with university for a short time, it was the worst year I’ve ever had. I couldn’t have much time for my Manga recently but now I’m back to where I’ve stopped. People say why are you studying engineering in the first place? Why am I suffering?

Surprisingly, I hate studying art; I hate being forced to draw. I’m a self-taught; I discover and develop my own skills. And just recently, I’ve discovered that I really hate drawing for others. The reason why I chose engineering is for my own career, not for me as an artist.

I have created a video about my first Manga, the Manga that I’ve put in all my heart and soul . I believe that this story will turn into an anime. I loved my characters and the reason why I posted only 2 chapters is because of their length. I think this Manga was of a great benefit to both my skills and my confidence. I kept thinking of this as the most precious and unique. But now, The ocean of Secrets is a lot different, not only style but story .

What’s going on in my Manga?


Dear Diary,


Two weeks of vacation have passed; I spent a lot of my time on editing my Manga due to the mysterious disappearance of my editor (God knows where she is!).

I'm in the process of preparing my package to some publishing companies to consider my work. I might send it now or after I complete the Manga.

Now it’s time to clean the dust on my pen tablet and start drawing chapter two.

Thank you everyone.. I feel your support

My website is finally out!

Hi everyone, my website is finally out, I am really happy to announce that all my up-to-date work and news will be in one place! I will be posting drawings and news about my upcoming Manga regularly.

I would also like to thank Rin, who is my site developer for making such a magnificent website!
-----------------------------------------------
Keep in mind that this website is still progressing, and sorry if it takes time to load, if somehow this problem is not fixed, I might do some major changes.
In the coming summer, I will be posting tutorials other than YouTube!
Thank you for reading!
