Originally just a warm-up sketch, but then I decided to test out a new painting method and spent 3-1/2 hours painting this portrait of Ryuko. I think it turned out alright, though I have to get back to commission work so I can’t spend any more time on it :(

Haha that’s a new one! Thanks.

kingovan said: Hmmm, black mage. The art is so amazing that some dark magic must be invloved.... love you :D

Haha I can assure you there is little to no dark magic involved in my drawing :3

I get the feeling you might want to be a Rogue or Ranger but may be much better suited to a Cleric. You appear to enjoy the company and companionship of others and continue to do what you do for your own enjoyment but sometimes even for the enjoyment of others.

Interesting; haven’t heard that one before! Thanks for the input.

Haha I always default to Rogue/Assassin/Stealth classes in games when possible. If multiple weapons are an option, then bows primary (usually only while in cover, though) and daggers secondary are usually my choice. 

What RPG class would you assign me?

mr-micks-muses:

Oooooo, good one.

Okay let’s roll.

Sure, I will continue to if people want to see them! However, the first CBT ends in a few hours (I was just late because I was travelling) :P

I’ve had a key for a while so I downloaded the ArcheAge client last night and created my characters today! (I had my MacBook with me while in Japan or else I would have just downloaded it earlier instead of on the last day.)

Anyway, these are a couple of screenshots of my Harani Darkrunner (Shadowplay, Battlerage, and Auramancy). And her name is Satsuki, so if you’re playing you can add me if you want. I really wanted to get a Founder’s pack but they’re so expensive, so I’ll just have to wait for the next CBT!

Edit: Changed the screenshots, since these ones look a little better anyway.

And now it’s my last night in Japan…I really don’t want to leave but I have to… ; A ; 

Today I went to Shinjuku and Akihabara, and I finally got some souvenirs to bring back, one of which is the limited edition Snow Miku figma that was released earlier this year :3 Happy to have found it for a reasonable price instead of ordering online!

But yeah, in a few hours it will be back to my regular, boring life. However, I resolve to be more prepared (in terms of language and stuff) next time I come back!

Ahh, well maybe next time! :3 I do plan to come back, after all.

neojames82 said: Where in Japan did you visit for the most part?

I’ve been in Chiba for most of the trip. Went to Ueno for a little bit a couple of days ago.

Not really going to get to do much travelling around this time, but I was also in Japan about 7 years ago, so I did get to see a lot of stuff then!

EDIT: Today on the last day I went to Shinjuku for a little bit, and then stopped by Akihabara on the way back.

Tomorrow is my last full day in Japan, and coincidentally also my only free day (where I went/what I spent my daytime doing the past week wasn’t really in my control). I hate to have to leave so soon, but I had a good time and I hope to return in the near future!

And hopefully with a better understanding of Japanese.
