Last week I got two beautiful portrait art in the mail (♥_____♥)!

One is from Kriss!! (I felt guilty because I thought mine was lost but she received it today, yay!) And I squealed when I saw that it's LUHAN!!! OMG! I love it! I really need to know how you used your gloss, too, because it's always so clear without any trace of brush strokes.

And the other one is from Ksenia whom I exchanged art with from Postcrossing forum. SHE DREW ME, based on my postcrossing profile OMG. And she drew with white charcoal on black paper (was that even it??) and I was so amazed because I've never accepted anything like that. And she put some leaves on the back, it was really nice :)

Water Problem
The reason why I posted this late was because a leak in my apartment room has kept me busy. Man, it was raining SUPER HEAVY on Friday night. I was awake until 2 am trying to dry the pool of water coming into my room, until I decided to just go to bed. I woke up with almost the whole floor covered in water, geez. They said it's because the next door is doing construction work and they probably damaged the other side of my wall which caused the leak. Whatever it is, I hope they can fix it soon (T_____T). You can't see it in the picture but, the whole floor was covered in water. And then I went home to my parents on Saturday but the rain has damaged one of the electrical wire so half of the house had no power. Great.

New Translation!

Finally I got rid off my only private student so that I can focus more on my translation job. I have finished Jiraishin Diablo which was NOT my kind of manga at all, and now my editor has offered me a new title, Shoukoku no Altair! It's exciting to start because the drawing style is pretty ♥. But also a little bit intimidating because it seems to be a popular series which still continues until today. (Usually I got to translate old, boring mangas only, lol)

I am so happy you got it! I hope you like it!

The reason there is no brush marks is I use a spray on gloss. :)

Wow you got lucky finding her! I don't know how I would feel receiving my own face in the mail though! hahahaha. but it looks so cool!

I'm amazed with anyone who can draw, especially portraits, how do you guys even do that... What I can do is just mostly messy splotchy splash of colors. I'll try to think of something else for our next swap!

Oh, spray on gloss, nice! I tried using some finishing sprays as well, but I'm not sure if it's even the right product (do you use acrylic varnish? paper protectant?) Anyway when I tried varnish, the result isn't like yours, it's really thin (probably because I should do many layers, but I'm not patient enough to do it? lol)
