Hello! I'm sorry I haven't been updating DA at all.
I feel the content and style of my work has shifted dramatically, so I don't really want to put it here. xD;;;

I've been only drawing T&B fanart for the last 3-6 months and I haven't rendered anything properly since those T&B portraits lol...

But thank you to everyone for your kind messages on DA, I will continue to check here and upload stuff I think is appropriate for this account!

In the meantime, I'll be trapped on Tumblr. 8D;;;

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I use DeviantArt mostly for my completed animu stuff, but I post my other works elsewhere:

BLOG | I put everything here! Animu, biomedical, 3D modeling, sketches, etc. Also has links to my Flickr. Updated very frequently and best bet if you want to contact me 8D.

CGHUB | I only put personal stuff (and the occasional commission). Updated infrequently.

PORTFOLIO | This is my biomedical illustration portfolio website. I put finished scientific and medical illustrations/animations here. Updated frequently.

Anyway, sorry I haven't been active on DA, I do try to login and reply to anything from time to time! I just don't think a lot of the work I do now fits here anymore! O:
Also, feel free to contact me via email: ruruart (at) gmail (dot) com

...what a trap. O__o;;

Omg, so I only recently discovered MMD. I mean I've seen Vocaloid videos before, but I got trapped watching MMD Gintoki and Tiger/Bunny. 8D;;;
For those of you who don't know, Gintoki MMD: youtu.be/SntLrjd-D0E | Barnaby: youtu.be/qYUqEoyc0bU <-- this one totally cracks me up XD;;

I never thought to look into the actual MMD program until now. I'm currently studying to be a 3D animator (I use Autodesk Maya) so it piqued my interest (that and the thought of having a 3D model of Gintoki hurrrrrr 8D)

Has anyone used the MMD program? Can you actually model in it or do you alter base figures??! 3@

Ughhh I am resisting downloading the MMD program and testing it out. I can't decide whether I'm a bigger anime or 3D nerd at this point lol.
2.5 weeks to finish my Master's project... so not going to make it if I keep watching MMD vids OTL||| And sorry, I've fallen behind with DA messages again (as usual).

...and wanting to draw fanart instead of school things! D:

What are you watching this season? 8D
This season is turning out to be so good! I've never followed so many shows at once! <-- a really bad thing because I'm currently trying to finish my Master's degree over the next month... OTL

Tiger & Bunny need more love on DA... and outside of Japan for that matter! I'm hoping to get some AnoHana fanart out next. And of course, more Gintamaaaa!

Watchlist (in order of awesomeness imo 8D):
1. Ano hi mita hana no namae o bokutachi wa mada shiranai
2. Tiger & Bunny
3. Gintama' (I think my expectations were just too high! Latest arc looks promising though)
4. Stein's;Gate
5. Ao no Exorcist
6. Hanasaku iroha
7. Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai II
8. Gosick
9. Deadman Wonderland
10. [C]
11. Sekaiichi hatsukoi <-- One of those, it's so bad that it's good types? Or maybe it's just bad... lol /gets mauled by rabid yaoi fangirls D:

So thank you for your comments, i will get to them eventually!!

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 8, 2009, 9:19 PM



I just wanted to apologize for my inactivity on DA... just haven't been feeling it recently.  I will reply to comments and comment on deviations soon/eventually. 8D  Please note me if you need to contact me!

I have been drawing, but nothing post worthy! ;0;
Please check out my blog for sporadic art dumps.

Thanks for all of your continued support! :heart:

EDIT So my bf said this journal sounded so gloomy so I just wanted to clarify, I'm not being emo or anything!!  I just haven't felt like going on DA recently, that's all. xD;;; <3

AnimeNorth coming up! (+ any manga suggestions?!)

Journal Entry: Sun May 17, 2009, 6:43 PM



So I'll be attending Anime North and I won't be in the artist alley for the first time in like 6 years! I totally forgot about table registrations this year...

I wonder how I'm going to spend a whole weekend there without a table to look after. -@;;;
But anyway, does anyone have any good manga suggestions?  Aside from completing my DeathNote set, i'm looking to buy some new manga at the con. ^-^

I'm looking for something on the lighthearted side (nothing too emo/melodramatic) with really nice artwork. <:
For example, i'm a big fan of Paradise Kiss, Honey & Clover, Death Note, and xxxHOLiC manga!

Restaurant City addiction ,0,

Tue Apr 21, 2009, 10:06 AM
Acccccck... So I've been addicted to Restaurant City for the past week or two, which is why my commissions have been movely slowly and I haven't really been keeping up with DA messages.
This has totally been my like... free Ragnarok Online substitute lol.

At least the appeal of the game is really starting to wane??!? 8D;;;

(DOES ANYONE ELSE PLAY?!? xD)

In the meantime, check out some of my traditional art because I clearly fail at updating my DA...(and this blog for that matter...)

Click the oogleh fish! 8D

Commissions closed!

Sat Feb 7, 2009, 12:18 AM
02 | 06 | 09

All commission slots are now closed!  I'm not sure when I'll be reopening, but it won't be for a while because I really want to work on my own stuff.  Hopefully by doing so, I'll be able to come up with something that I'm actually happy with and become a little more consistent. I think I need to really explore more and push myself more! ;0;

Thank you everyone who is commissioning me!  And of course, also everyone who has been supporting me this whole time with your notes, comments, and faves! :heart:

(Oh and if you're interested in commissioning me in the future, please note/email me if you'd like to be put a waiting/mailing list)


01 | 30 | 09

Bah.  So unhappy with my art right now.  I think I need to go back to traditional media and try stuff out, I always get thrown into the same pattern with digital art. D:

But okay, emo-ruru aside, this will be the last call for commissions (will close in 1 week from now).  I will be closing indefinitely, until I am happy with (or less pissed off at, more like it) my art.  (That and i finally found a part-time job for funds :'D)

Thank you for your continued support, sorry for going all emo on you.  I love you guys! :heart:

I settled on a 6x11 widescreen Wacom Intuos3... so amazing! *A*

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'd just like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  All the best for the coming year! :heart:

And homg do i ever love my new 21.6" widescreen LG monitor (8000:1 contrast ratio, 5 ms response time).  It's a HUGE upgrade from my 15" standard LCD monitor!  The colours on my old monitor were always really dark, so it was really frustrating to draw something and realize that a) most other people see the colours as really faded/dull b) it ends up super washed out when i send it to print.

Next step is to try out my 4x5 tablet on this monitor, wonder if it'll feel weird to have a tiny stroke on the tablet translate into a huge movement on the monitor... Sooo still haven't opened my Intuos3 yet! *is one of those people who buys something and waaaay overthinks it before opening/using ;-; *

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

For those who celebrate anyway, hope you had a wonderful Christmas and didn't get trampled if you went shopping today! xD;;;  Oh and i am hopelessly behind in messages again (i was doing well in November and early December! T-T), so please forgive me if i don't reply or reply super late.  

Anyway, i just wanted to share the two awesome Secret Santa drawings i got! ^0^
:holly::thumb107282866::holly:
(i'm sorry i had really lame OCs 8D)


p.s. I did end up buying the Wacom Intuos 6x8 (yet to be delivered though) and the widescreen 21.6" LG - but i just realized, how do i map a widescreen desktop space to the tablet...? ._.;;;


random: and i finally picked up a Zuny penguin for 50% off @ Indigo, been eyeing them forever! *A*

Wacom tablet advice?

Tue Dec 23, 2008, 9:15 PM



Hello!  Hope everyone is having a good holiday so far!

I'm thinking of buying a Wacom Intuos3 6x8 tablet during the Boxing Day sale for $280 CDN (+13% tax) aka ~$230 USD.  Does anyone have any feedback for this tablet?  Is it a good choice/price?

I am currently using a Wacom Graphire2 4x5 tablet.

Oh btw, I ended up buying a 21.6" LG for $200 CDN, 8000:1 contrast ratio, i THOUGHT it was 2ms response time, but i may have gotten this one with 5 ms: www.futureshop.ca/catalog/prod…
(haven't hooked it up yet)  Thanks for all your suggestions!

Widescreen monitor suggestions?

Tue Dec 2, 2008, 2:42 PM



I'm currently looking to buy a widescreen monitor because my little 15" Samsung LCD monitor just isn't good enough anymore... Annoyingly, Paint Tool SAI's windows can't be moved around so i'm left with like 50% of the space to work with and it's really straining on the eyes.  So a widescreen monitor should do the trick.

Does anyone have monitor suggestions?  Does brand actually matter (can't afford Mac stuff...)?  A sales associate told me not to go for the glossy monitors because the glare coming off them strains your eyes (though it looks oh so pretty ;-; )

i'm thinking a 20" Acer one... not sure though... ;-;

DotCon was...TINY. -@;;;  The smallest convention I've ever been to.  It was pretty disappointing and depressing at first, considering you could walk through the entire marketplace/DotShop in like 30 min... So I didn't end up buying anything.  I was looking forward to completing my Death Note manga set and start to collect Honey & Clover manga, but the deals were really crappy (well, the one company pretty much had a monopoly there...)

But the artist alley was nice and cozy, and it was fun meeting other artists and trading prints.  So overall it was actually pretty fun! ^0^

Thanks for print trades! :heart:

Dear Santa...

Mon Nov 10, 2008, 11:06 AM



i got an invitation from :iconhollysecretsanta: *0*!  So many good artists, i hope i don't disappoint!

Here's my request, excuse my lack of OCs and such...i'm going to try to add more options and references after this weekend's DotCon ._.;;;.

1. QDDR Mascot. Yes, this is the mascot I made for the DDR club at my university. /maximum nerdiness xD;;;
i20.photobucket.com/albums/b22…
sudoru.deviantart.com/art/QDDR…

Notes: She has a bubbly and energetic personality.  Have fun with the design as long as it's fun!  The important features to keep are the hat, little ear thingies, and light blue hair with an odd tuft at the front.  I originally envisioned her as an android but er...never really fleshed it out, so if you're mecha-inclined, do have fun. >>;;;

2. Ragnarok Online knight
i20.photobucket.com/albums/b22…
^ The sprites are the best ref for headgear.

Notes: She has a sassy personality and likes er...stabbing things? 8D.  She's a spear knight so please do not depict her with a sword. O:  Good luck with her hair, i always make it a huge ugly purple blob. ;-;

She's usually with a peco peco too, but don't worry about putting one in if it's too much work.  Here some refs just in case:
i20.photobucket.com/albums/b22…
galou.deviantart.com/art/nak-2…

Please let me know through HollySecretSanta if you need more refs!

Thank you Santa! *excited* *0*
