Crafts – Embroidery, Cross-Stitch, & More

I added bead flowers to my necklace.

I made a blue rose out of paper felt. This was part of an explosion box, and it was probably the best thing I’ve made.

I embroidered a flower and a coffee bean on a tote bag. I also embroidered a strawberry and matcha ice cream to the tote. They’re done freely, and they’re symbolic of my days.

I sewed tulips on my handkerchief.

I cross-stitched a four-leaf clover.

I used watercolor on a book. I deliberately chose a book I got at a thrift store because I wasn’t sure how it would go, and I kind of like the outcome.

I loved the pumpkins we carved for Halloween, so I made miniature versions of them out of air dry clay.

SADtober Theme 1: Autumn Day

Ene and Konoha โค

I’m participating in a drawing challenge created by my friends. @sfuanimeart

I drew the hats from Among Us. I played it with my friends on my birthday, which was also this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival (October 1). The story behind this drawing is basically my birthday celebration. This is what an autumn day looks like to me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Other stuff I made:

A graphic I made for Aria. Go check out her blog!

Changes to the Blog & New Twitter!

I’m participating in a graphic design workshop hosted by Jon Spencer Reviews. I made a new blog header and graphic for my About page and I’m pleased with the final results!

I have to thank Jon because I wouldn’t have done this if it weren’t for the workshop and all the support from fellow blogger friends!

These feel more personal – not just because I created them but also because I used my drawings.

The next task is for your partner to create you a Twitter post. I thought about it and made a Twitter account. If you’ve known me long enough, you probably know that I was super active on Twitter a few years ago. I wasn’t very happy on there at the time so I left. I think I will primarily use this new account to tweet about anime and share my blog posts. I think this move will also help me feel more connected with my online friends (especially with COVID right now and because I graduated university).

My username is @melo__nsoda (two underscores, the same as my personal Instagram).

Monomi + Monokuma Fan Art

I drew Monokuma and my friend drew Monomi and the amazing background. I told my friend I didn’t like Monomi’s underwear so that’s why they’re wearing clothes.

I really want to love this world

In my last post, I wrote about Haruma Miura, a Japanese actor who committed suicide. I felt very sad about his death, so I did this drawing.

ๆƒณ่ฟ‡็ฆปๅผ€ไปฅ่ฟ™็งๆ–นๅผๅญ˜ๅœจ
I once thought of leaving and to exist in absence

ๆ˜ฏๅ› ไธบ ้‚ฃไบ›ๆ—็™ฝ ้‚ฃไบ›ๅงฟๆ€ ้‚ฃไบ›ไผคๅฎณ
It was because of those narratives, those stances, and those inflicted pains

ไธๆƒณ็ฆปๅผ€
I don’t want to leave

The above lyrics are from Hua Chenyu’s song, I really want to love this world.

Hua Chenyu said, “Hope everyone can pay more attention to the friends around them, and also correctly understand depression. When you are alone and lost, I hope this song can give you some courage, open the door, love this world, and let yourself be loved.”

This is not easy. But it keeps happening which makes me so upset and frustrated. I feel powerless sometimes… but I hope that this song will reach some of you out there, wherever you are.

Let’s fight together!

Six Fan Arts Challenge

Rize Kamishiro from Tokyo Ghoul & Jin Guangyao from Mo Dao Zu Shi

These side characters are essential to the plot! Sure, they’ve made the protagonists of their respective shows suffer… but what would the series be without them?

.

.

I only drew Rize and Mengyao/Jin Guangyao for this challenge. Then I got preoccupied with other things so… I filled this with some of my older (but still kind of recent) fan art.
