Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to post the work so… u_u;;;
(My twitter has art yes, but I’m super annoying XD; if you’re ok with that, it’s the same username)
In reverse order but yes —- I had an intense, burning love for these two. Even now, I still think the rivalry they have is one of the most interesting interactions I’ve ever come across. It was coarse, passionate, respectful yet antagonist. And when I think about how Priest Seto spent the rest of his life trying to figure out a way to bring Yami back home and how all their unresolved friction sort of carried onto their next life I get kind of teary-eyed.
For me, reading the manga, there was absolutely nothing more interesting than seeing the two face off. There was so much time and depth spent fleshing their unique relationship that it was extremely depressing for me to see them part ways. With the exception of Rapan, I don’t necessarily ship them romantically anymore, but they had hands-down the most complex relationship in the series.
1. Most Favourite Character: Sendou Aichi
ine of the show; a bland and generic character at first glance but develops rather thoroughly throughout Vanguard and and carries the show really well. A sweet kid who tries hard to be sincere and is as simple as he is complex. He’s interesting in the sense that it’s hard to ascribe him to a particular archetype. Something like “shounen” just doesn’t justify.
Aichi is incredible, but also really normal, which makes him easy to relate to. He’s often times a bit co-dependent; with people and with Vanguard. While he was in school, he wasn’t really sure where his directions for the future lie except with Vanguard. He’s really good at that one thing, and has some confidence in it, but having skills in Vanguard does not necessarily benefit society (as the teacher points out).
The situation described above is one many might find themselves in at one point or another. I’m really interested to see how he’ll manage to adapt his interests into his future, but at this point in time in the plot line, it’s not really something to worry about.
Aichi you’re breaking my heart in Season 4.
Only a few days left before Otakon (map), so I’m scrambling to get everything done and packed between work, and then off I go….;;;; (it would be wonderful if I could clone myself right about now…). I work a regular shift at my store, and get home at 7pm, just to do freelance work until 1am…^^;; —- it’s a rough shift of 12-15hrs of work. On the plus side, the job isn’t too taxing.
Good news is, I’ll be finishing up Dragon Essence with Zeiva Inc. when I get back. Also, starting up a nice side project that will hopefully be very helpful to everyone (still a secret though!)… as well as going to upload some more graphic materials for artists to use. Additionally, almost all of the PTH books are shipped now except for just a few (the reason being is the assistant’s work schedule is now conflicting with the post schedule, so it’ll still be a few more days before the last remainders are sent).
Regarding my own shop, a lot of products need restocking and have been out of stock for a while now…sorry about that…I will restock them near the end of August, along with hopefully some new, cool items. The bad news is, postage cost went up in Canada a few months ago, so the shipping costs will have to go up a little bit. I’ll still try and balance things so that the prices are still fair.
Regarding commissions, as you may have noticed, I haven’t taken any for more than a year now, except for a bit of commercial work. Actually, starting soon, I may not take any commission at all, indefinitely… (mostly for health reasons). I also want to go learn some new skills in other areas like 3D-modelling. (You can totally still bribe me with rare anime goods though).
At the moment, I’ve bounced back to liking Vanguard (and it’s terrible, adsfdgfjsj; this show is life-ruining, yet I love it)… So, if you can beat me in a 4-damage match in Vanguard during Otakon, I’ll give you a free poster.
Don’t worry I’m terribly weak; haha…
That’s it—-! If you need to reach me in the next few days while I’m away and dying on a 12hr bus ride, please do so by email; please don’t send an ask, they either get lost or get pushed down. If it’s merchandise-related please send one to the shop email at kazehimeshop(@)gmail, and an assistant will get back to you.
Thanks for reading, love you lots!
Hmm…personal-preference-wise, I prefer something soft and paintery…like Sou-chan’s style. But if it’s the style I like drawing the most with, then I probably enjoy hard-shading (—-“probably” because I’m pretty fickle ^^;;).
Trying to be precise can be stressful at times, but the outcome is usually a good result.
