More art pieces

As the heARTivity‘s program runs, I made a couple of art pieces. It’s been a rather busy week so I haven’t got much time like the last but I hope the result’s not that bad 😉

Snow Rabbit

“Snow Rabbit”
Originally photo taken by my friend, Megumi Uchida, she made this rabbit from snow, its eye from berry and ear from leaves 🙂
Day-12, nature & fruit


The first lyrics I understand in a Japanese song, this has become a memorable one because the meaning is meaningful also XD
Day-15, favorite lyrics

Jump Rope

“Jump Rope”
One activity that I remembered well from my childhood: making jump rope from rubbers and play it with my brother and cousins.
Day-21, childhood


A brave knight spirit of King Arthur and a pure heart of a girl come together into this character from Fate series (Stay Night and Zero), Saber.
Day-25, favorite fictional characters

Spirited Away

“Chihiro and Kohaku”
From a famous anime movie by Ghibli, Spirited Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi), Kohaku (spirit dragon) and Chihiro (the girl riding the dragon) have a relationship which really inspired me.
Day-25, favorite fictional characters

The program will end at the end of January, so I hope I can make more art pieces this week 😀


Making arts again!

Ahh, its been a long time since I make art pieces, but now I’ve come back thanks to HeARTivity, an art club in my faculty which is launching a program, BulanKarya (Month of art piece), this January. They publish the themes everyday and they invite everybody to join and make an art piece.

I don’t make an artpiece everyday, but these are my works for several themes in the last 2 weeks:


“Remember this fearless comrade?”
Day-2, favorite movie in 2014


Blissful (bahagia) is not always when we are happy, but when we really are feeling and enjoying all the emotions we have.
Day-8, definition of happiness


Inspired while swimming, I tried to paint the sky I saw from under the water.
Day-10, sky

I’m still waiting for the upcoming themes and I will share more pieces in the future!! 😀

My Journey at Junior Alley

There are many paintings –17 to be exact after the last 2 paintings– I made when I’m a Junior Alley. And I will show some of them that was really memorable to me 🙂

Lightning Dragon – 22 September 2011
Well, I took the model from a game that I played, DragonFable –well, I will post about this later on XD-.

Dining Out – 5 October 2011
I had difficulties painting this one, and that’s the first time I asked for help and there I met my becoming mentor, DR2.

Parrot’s Pirate – 11 October 2011
There are auctions with themes, and that time, the theme was pirates. I was confused what to draw but at last I thought of something ridiculous, that is the Parrot’s Pirate.

Pretty Face – 15 October 2011
This was a PBN I chose and it was really challenging. Well, if you look and the real reference picture, this is was different from it, but I was shocked back then. So, a famous artist made a blog and he showcased paintings in the blog. He wrote a forum for all to suggest which paintings to be showcased that month. And yes, that month someone suggested this painting and it became one of the showcased paintings. I was extremely happy!

Becoming a Junior at Artistic Alley

As I posted before, I got mail from LS7 –lol, nickname mode on :v– and was invited to join Artistic Alley! –Junior section, of course– I was really happy and excited! After entering the world of arts, I realized that it is a really famous community!

If you didn’t open the link directing to the forum thread above, briefly it’s the community where you can develop your painting with PBN -Paint By Number- programme. There, we’re given reference pictures and we could pick one and start painting! After you finished, you can take another reference picture.. but!! it’s limited, sooo you have to be quick because someone else could take what you want! Also, if you have trouble, there are mentors who can help you! The paintings that were made will be auctioned and you can earn money! XP
Let’s continue, for the first time auctioning, I hanged 2 paintings
In His Time – 14 September 2011

Actually, this is a double board painting –you could see it, right?-, I searched the reference picture myself, the background was totally different but I’m pretty glad with those hands.

Mickey and The Letter – 18 September 2011
This painting is my first PBN! All this time, I haven’t known the function of the drawing application, so I still use 100% opacity in all of my paintings but I guess it was the reason why this painting turns out well! I did make a lot of money in this one, I was quite shock myself XD!

More paintings

Back to SW! After those 3, I painted 2 more paintings
Young Natsu Dragneel – 3 September 2011
I loved Fairy Tail and this is the main character. I chose this scene because I taught Natsu was cute (I haven’t known Laxus at the time so… XD)

Atlantic Dolphin – 6 September 2011
I searched for a reference picture and at last I drew this. It’s very amateur but I’m actually glad. Nothing wrong with practicing, right?

My First 3 Paintings

Well, as I wrote in the previous post, I posted a thread on the Marketplace section of the SW forums. These are the three first paintings I made. I made it in July – August 2011.
Music Girl
I used a ref pic (reference picture) for the girl in the painting and I added the musical notes. This is my first attempt in painting, it took 3 days to finish.
Awaking Angel in the Night Sky
I also used a ref pic for this painting. It took days for me to paint the wings!
Samurai Siluet

I didn’t use a ref pic for this painting. I was inspired by the samurais I saw in animes but I think this picture didn’t really come out as I imagined XD. Well, this is my second painting actually. I painted my original one but then I clicked the wrong button and it’s gone D: !! So, I repainted it but this painting is not as good as the original one.


I love to draw, to paint! Especially drawing animes XD. Well, but in my high school there are no art –I mean art like painting or drawing– subject. I was really sad about it but luckily my friend introduce me to this game, SmallWorlds.

Smallworlds is a 3D virtual reality game, where you can do things like missioning, meeting friends, playing together (chess, fastdraw, etc.), playing in an arena, etc. There are skills with levels and tokens (the currency) to earn. It also has gold as currency but you have to pay in real life to get it.
So, my friend actually introduced me to SW when we’re in junior high –I’ve been playing since Feb 2009– but I was into it since I had the long holiday after the junior high school national exams.

First, I was into it because I like missioning. I looked at the forum and tried so many good missions. Most of the story lines are touching and I’m impressed by how the mission makers made the missions so real. Then I joined the mission community and leveled up my skills fast.

Then, something caught my eyes. Yes! It is the canvas! I thought “Oh why did I just realize that I could paint here now?!” XD. So I tried to make paintings from the canvas and post it on the forum –for the first time, I just wanted to make money so I post in the Marketplace section lol-. The next day, I got an unexpected mail! It was from an artist, a famous artist in SW and she invited me to join an art community named Artistic Alley. I was extremely happy and I immediately said yes! So I became a member of Artistic Alley Junior since I was just an amateur. There, I developed my painting skills quickly. I befriended with many amazing artists all over the world and I even had a mentor from Australia! I will post the paintings in other posts because each painting has its own story and it’s too long to write it all here!

PS. Well, at first, I made a boy character –lol, I do love making boy characters in games– named Van Samuel. And for the signature, I used the word VeLyou can see them in the paintings later-. But as the time goes by, after I made many paintings I felt uneasy so I made a girl character but as the signature is VeL, so I decided to name her Vanessa Gabrielle XD
