The worst part about having Paint Tool Sai installed on my system is knowing that other artists are using the program to its full potential with a Wacom Cintiq or other expensive tablets that I can’t afford.

…oh well, enough with the jealousy and time for some holiday spirit, and all that other jazz. Day 4, man! ($4k present for Mikoto…please? Please?)

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

Emil Castagnier, Plue, & DaisukexRiku (Chibi Fanart)

It’s a school day and writer’s block calls for fanart dump.

Bonus 4koma (Strip #1. Yes, there will be more). An inside joke between the lazy co-writer (Steven) and I.

Emil Castagnier (Tales of Symphonia -Knight of Ratatosk-)
Plue (Rave Master)
Daisuke/Riku (D•N•Angel) (version 2 has slight differences)

All done with a mouse on Manga Studio EX 4.0. No tablets (everything would look better with tablets :P). Lightly-colored for an extra innocent chibi effect. Enjoy.

(Numbers hold no importance, although #1 is the most wanted one. Also, happy 4th of July!)

Overdoing things
Wonder how far we’ll go into our strange hobbies?” – Zelos Wilder.

Jesus, Regal. I know you’ve lost your lover and you’re bound by some really uncomfortable handcuffs, but don’t you think you’re overdoing your online activities just a tad?

Tales of Symphonia: Tethe’alla Hen (OVA) – 01

Hunny
Come here… hunny.”

I mean Sheena!
I mean Sheena”!

Zelos is as cool as he was in the game.

I started watching, thinking, “I’ve been waiting 4 years for this. You better make me happy, ToS OVA!” and I was awarded with this scene. <3
