Yes, that last one is a boy. Basically, ulzzang or "eoljjang" means "best face". The style is so that one looks as youthful and dolly as possible, but still looking "natural" and not flashy. The main reason I love this style is because it's cute, it fits my build, and it's not really skin-revealing! The main theme is innocence (or so I see from most pictures), so it's in no way lewd; just perfect for my personality. How old are you?
Rest assured I'm probably older than you. I find out that most of the people I talk to in sites are at least 4 years younger than me; some 6, some even younger. I'm a twenty-something year old who's trying to build up a career so don't let my "young looks" fool ya. You haven't changed your username or icon for so long; why?
Why not? But honestly though, I can't change my name since I've grown to people calling me May or Jasmine and it's pretty much become my brand. As for the icon, I feel like I can't change it unless I get to make partner icons again. If anybody was wondering, I share my icon with my best friend whom I have met even before I made an account here. WAAAAAAAY WAY WAY
before I made an account here. Speaking of that, who are those characters in your icons?
The one on my icon is Ceane Trench, and my BFF's icon is her OC Cerileon Clandestrino. I may have to draw a more recent picture featuring the both of them someday. How did you come up with the project Heliosphere?
I have always LOVED space! But honestly speaking, the interest sparked enough with a video that featured the sounds of the planets. Then I started thinking how cool Pluto might have been as a humanized character with all his moons and that underworld name... I wanted to make his design! Then yeah, I find out he's a midget so he's not that tall, dark, handsome bishounen I've envisioned him to be.
Trivia though, my first design was MARS despite wanting to design Pluto first. I just felt like "oh whatever I'll make the whole set let's start with characters I feel like I can draw".
I didn't have much ideas for Pluto back then. Why do your planets have nicknames?
Simple, really. Calling them by their planet names gave off an awkward vibe; like Mars sounds like marshmallow, then after designing Pluto I'm like "... Pluto? Seriously? He sounds like a dog and I'll call him Ploots
Sounds so weird so I had to look up alternate names to call them; and I guess that kind of made it apart from other space gijinka!
Now here's a few noteworthy touchy questions: Why have you stopped drawing Zelda? Do you still have fandoms?
Ahhh yes, I've been evading this question for so long. Didn't really want to talk about it but... it's getting on my nerves a little.
This is actually a real FAQ, so here's my answer. I just wanted variety. I've been drawing Zelda for years now and I just felt like I wanted to draw something else and try to be known as an artist, not just as part of the Zelda community. It's a little sad that I'm only known as a Zelda artist and nothing else. Besides, I don't want to ruin my established mini-universe by adding more stories that may flanderise the characters. The stories and art aren't going anywhere. You can still view them in my gallery.
If you want a less sugarcoated answer, but still a little painfully true, I just find the community err... meh, lately. The only constant thing in this world is change, death, and taxes, and Zelda fandom's not really exempted from that.
An even less sugarcoated answer, I'm trying to deal with some pain I've gotten from the community. Had the best welcome from a certain website from the community, gotten taken for granted, and lots of people who I thought were cool or were my friends eventually showed their true colours. Some left me for idk why, they just felt like it, some I thought were nice but were actually against me. THANKFULLY, nobody really tried to start any real drama. If some people feed off it and make a lot of stuff just to be noticed, well then I'm not one of them
. I actually would like to keep my integrity and dignity and not give it away for something trivial as popularity.
I'm tired of that. I'm tired of having to deal with people I don't like, I'm tired of doing what I don't enjoy anymore. I still love
Zelda as a game series, but as a fandom/community, as much as it helped me get where I am and helped me get a lot of lovely friends... I just really need a break from it all. Maybe someday I'll get back to it, who knows? But for now, I'm just not really into any fandom. I may like a series but I'm not actually participating in its fandom.
So please. PLEASE, don't ask me... or force
me, to draw Zelda art. Or roleplay it, or whatever.
I'm dealing with a lot of stuff right now and I'm really trying my best to move on. I'd like to try and forget about certain things related to it. It's already hard as it is, so thank you for understanding.TL;DR I don't hate the game series but I don't want to be part of the fandom for now. Getting over a lot of things.
Yes, I do have a religion. I do believe in my God, thank you for not judging me by my religion alone.
I'm not the best Christian, but I try to be the best I can be.
Enough touchy questions I don't like talking about them much. Do you like long-term friendships?
Go ask my friends; I've actually kept years long friendships since I'm a fan of those! Some of those I've met since day one here are still my friends; or well, I'd still love to keep a friendship with them if they're willing! The friends I cherish the most are those who have seen me at my worst and yet still decide to be my friends... and because of that, I'd like to return them the favour.I may be brutally frank, I may be a little spunky, but you can count on my loyalty once you've earned my trust. Please don't
ever tear that apart. What languages can you speak?
Nakakasalita ako ng tuwid na Filipino (dialect po ang Tagalog sa bandang Timog Luzon at hindi wika, maraming salamat po)
and I can speak straight English
as well. Basically I'm bilingual though I can speak some limited/broken Japanese
which has somewhat helped me with pixiv and some stuff like Japanese stores with written Katakana on their items, etc. I can read Hiragana, Katakana, VEEERY LIMITED Kanji, but I have limited vocabulary and knowledge. Miscellaneous things:
Basically I'm just a rabbit with a keyboard and a drawing tablet. I'd like to think I'm nice because I want to try my best to be; everybody is fighting a tough battle and I'd love to think that nobody deserves to be treated like trash. And as such, nobody should treat others like trash. I don't bite really, so please don't give me a reason to!
