:la: Hi deviants~! I joined dA to learn from fellow deviants and improve on my artwork.

:pray: I pray that one day I can learn enough to work on matte paintings for films, games and animations. My inspiration comes from anime and other artists here on dA. I love video games and archery related things, especially crossbows. I enjoy genres like fantasy and romantic comedies. I believe that we share what we love to our friends so they can feel the same happiness we get from it. I pray for people to get to know my greatest love, God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. 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

Current Residence: Vancouver, BC

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!" is what people would think, but I have my reasons. But the 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 an old dream I've had since high school. The dream is to sell my art at a large anime convention. I want to accomplish this dream before I work towards my long term goal of being part of a studio to work on a long term series. 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 remind myself to have a clear direction of where I want to go. I don't like planning 
ahead, but I know what I am aiming for. And that makes me happy.

So after graduation, and I have no job? Right now I am working 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 have to teach the kids how to apply English. The hours are short so I am living from paycheck to paycheck but I am comfortable with that. I noticed 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. 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~

Sword Art Online Keychains by Liansa
Sword Art Online Keychains
I drew these chibi keychains of SAO characters for MRART's storenvy. Follow the link below to check them out at our store! :dummy:

I really like the Konno Yuuki arc and it was great to see a series go beyond high school and talk about mechatronics. I studied interactive arts and technology so it related to a lot of things I did in university.

YumiTheVampy's Commission by Liansa
YumiTheVampy's Commission
This commission is of :iconyumithevampy:'s OC, Jovani, relaxing in the depths of 'hell'. This is the first time I had to draw a background with just line art so I was a bit confused how to make overlapping parts clear and less cluttered. Overall I had fun working with it.

Visual Novel Background Art by Liansa
Visual Novel Background Art
Here is a collection of background art I drew for the Global Game Jam 2015. I worked in a team of three and spent 48 hours to make a visual novel as the background artist and secondary programmer. \(*^*)/

I learned how to assess my time and tone down my color schemes for the characters to stand out more. I was also taught how to use renpy's programming language for the first time.

Full details of the game and demo is available on the official Global Game Jam website:
