:la: Hi deviants~! I joined dA to learn from fellow deviants and improve on my artwork. I pray that one day I can learn enough to work on matte paintings for films, games and animations. My inspiration comes from Studio Ghibli, Pixar, Dreamworks, and Disney.

:pray: I love video games and archery related things, especially crossbows. And I enjoy genres like fantasy and romantic comedies. I believe that we share what we love to our friends to grant them with the same happiness we get from it. I pray for people to get to know my greatest love, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. And I dedicate all my success and improvements to the Lord. ^u^

My favourite quotes:
"It concerns us to know the purposes we seek in life, for then, like archers aiming at a definite mark, we shall be more likely to attain what we want" - Aristotle, Philosopher

"My job is to awaken the possibility in other people. My definition of success is not about wealth and fame and power, it's about how many shining eyes around me." - Benjamin Zander, Conductor

This is an update of what I've been up to this year.

In January, I participated in the Global Game Jam and made a visual novel with two other amazing girls. We were the only full female group at the Vancouver site so I'm glad we represented! I was the background artist and secondary programmer. We had three days and two nights to come up with a concept and create the assets on site.

(Full details and gameplay available here:
globalgamejam.org/2015/games/y…)

I thought this was a crazy way to challenge myself at the beginning of the year and it was definitely worth the experience.

I mentioned I graduated last year and will be looking for jobs at game design and
cartoon studios. However that's not completely true, I started looking at my options and even wrote up some cover letters and made my portfolio but I haven't actually applied for anywhere. "Lazy Alert!" is what most people are thinking, but I have my reasons. For people who know me in person, and especially those who have worked with me, "laziness" is far from how I carry myself in life. One of my reasons is that I am working towards a dream of mine. It's old dream I had since I was in highschool and a simple one. I want to accomplish this dream before I work towards my long term goal of being part of a long running series for a studio. The dream is to sell my art at a large anime convention. This is going to possible this year since our artist table group won the mascot contest and was awarded two full tables at the longest-running anime convention in Vancouver, Anime Evolution. But that also means my dream just took a huge shortcut and I need to dedicate my time in making enough art to sell.

I always remind myself to have a clear direction of where I want to go. I don't plan
ahead, I just know what I am aiming for. And that makes me happy.

So after graduation, no job? How am I staying alive? I do have a part-time job and I get commissioned once in awhile. My part-time job is teaching kids how to draw at a
daycare. Half the time I teach English while applying it with drawing skills which makes it fun for me and the kids. The hours are short so I am living from paycheck to paycheck but I am comfortable with that. I have acquired a great skill from teaching kids, whenever they get rowdy and accidentally injure my toes, I can smile it off and they quickly apologize and calm down because they could tell it was painful but I am still smiling. However if they injure my hands, I am less forgiving and give them the death stare hehe.

My health has seen better days.. three days ago I experienced vertigo for the first time. I think it was due to straining my neck from drawing. It's a type of dizziness where the room was spinning continuously and rapidly even though I was lying down and not moving. It lasted for about half an hour and when I closed my eyes it felt extremely uncomfortable. Since I am highly sensitive to motion sickness, this meant a huge kick to my stomach and a brick in my head type of feeling. I am still trying to recover. When I lie down, I feel nausea and once every few hours I get a huge headache. Now I know what vertigo is and I hope this doesn't happen again anytime soon.

The relationships in my life are amazing, two best girlfriends, tons of close friends who
never judge, and a loving boyfriend. I really can't imagine how I can function without
them. My family is also well but I rarely see them, so I need to work on that. That's what I have going for my life, I hope my fellow deviants are working towards a better life for themselves as well.

Cheers and have a great day~

Jacky's Arcade Sona Commission by Liansa
Jacky's Arcade Sona Commission
A very interesting commission to draw a person cosplaying as arcade Sona in an arcade Ferrari. It warms my heart to see six people commission this poster for their friend. This is my first time drawing the inside of a car so it's not very realistic but I was up to the challenge. I enjoyed adding the details of the teemo hat and arcade hecarim. The hardest part to draw was the perspective of her breasts, it took over five tries! Enjoy~

JNPR Background by Liansa
JNPR Background
Since I am aiming to be a background artist and matte painter, I decided to draw the background of the JNPR poster separately. I usually filled in the details of the background after I draw the characters around their silhouettes so this approach took longer but it was more rewarding.

Like I mentioned in the main poster, this background is of the Beacon Academy's Main Hall where the teams were officially announced. The JNPR and RWBY poster are available online at our storenvy link below.

JNPR Poster by Liansa
JNPR Poster
I've been working on this poster for over a few months now. It is unfortunate that the creator of RWBY and voice actor of Lie Ren, Monty Oum, has passed away during this month and he'll never get to see this ; n ;. I cosplay as Weiss Schnee from time to time so this series has made a big impact on my life. This poster will be available for purchase in future Vancouver conventions and on our Storenvy. The background of this piece is the Beacon Academy's Main Hall with my own interpretation of its design. Enjoy~
