Raindrops keep falling on my head

Hello this is my artblog. Check my portfolio here

I am an illustrator and animator in training and a full time Pokemon Master too!

When I am not drawing, I spend my time reading manga, watching anime, listening to Kpop, day dreaming or just think of mermaids and mermen and be magical in my own ways.

Vivillon fanart dedicated to a redditor

So something happened on reddit that I would like to share. I was busy collecting all the Vivillon patterns last week. I was happy that I am almost reaching my goal and I was really happy that I got the chance to meet TONS of Vivillon collectors on Reddit. I asked for trades, they ask me for trades and got a bunch of messages just in search for all the Vivillon patterns to complete our collection.

One day, I met someone from Hawaii. Not quite sure about the ‘gender’, but allow me to use “She” for now because I think that she is a girl. We certainly had a lot of fun talking and to cut the story short, we ended up with a certain trade information that I will be exchanging 5 Modern Vivillons for 5 of her Ocean Pattern Vivillons. Since I was in the office that time, I told her that I will need sometime to collect my Vivillons for trade because I was so busy that time. 

Then, I received lots of messages asking me for trade requests and my head got really occupied and totally forgot my trade with her. Days passed and a lot of things happened. I traded all sorts of pokemon from around the world, from Shinies, competitive Pokemons, Bankball Pokemons, etc. It was a lot of fun! Now, after seeing my Vivillon collection. I only need two: Monsoon and Ocean. Since I have all sorts of Vivillon patterns left for trade, I thought that collecting the last two will be a piece of cake. So I put another trade thread. And when I woke up this morning, I found a message from her reminding me of the 5 Vivillons I requested days ago, and here I am, making a new thread asking for one. I told her I am sorry because I totally forgot about that. And then, she opened up something that 4 or 5 people requested for some Vivillons from her, and ended up not getting back to her and she felt that her time was put to waste or something like that. 

It may look like a really simple misunderstanding but I really wanted to let this out. I really felt guilty and I would like to take a chance to say that I am truthful with my apologies. I got inspired to draw this and drew an Ocean pattern vivillon to represent her, and a Modern pattern Vivillon to represent myself. 

The pokemon community is a great community and as much as possible, i want this community to be healthy, without having the feelings of being ignored and things like that as it might lead to more crucial things such as trusts being broken. 

To the pokemon community, thank you for being so good to me and let’s all join hands in making our community even better everyday. From competitive battling, pokemon collecting or even a simple day of just playing with our friends and having the time to relax with something we really love.

To the redditor that made me realize a lot of things, I am thankful that I was able to meet you in the virtual world. Once again, I am sorry and as the Hawaiian saying goes, E kala mai iaʻu! (thanks google for helping me translate!) Sending all my hugs from here to you.

Here’s a simple yet very special gift for my mom’s 60th birthday and for my dad on Father’s day.

Just a short story, I’ve always wanted to do a family portrait but told myself that I’ll do it when I become confident with my art style because I want to give the best for my family. But then I realized, that you don’t need to put on the best art style because what matters best is that you make it with love. :’D

Inspired by a dear friend Zoey who you should be totally checking out now :’D

I made this card for my brother who will be celebrating his birthday on June 5 and guess what? We’re having a double celebration as earlier this week, we received one great news that he and his wife will be having another baby boy coming this July!

Holy molly macaroni! I am just too excited! Happy birthday Bok! I wish you with many more wonderful things in life. Love ya bro!

WOW your work is great! Very cute :) Thank you for the follow, friend!

Thank you so much for appreciating! It means so much to me :’D Your works are sooo adorable as well and they’re really inspiring! I hope we can be great friends! n_n

Looking forward to seeing more drawings from you :’D and our avatars can become the greatest siblings ever! *giggles*

A little sketch warmup for today because I love mermaids! <3

Another one for today! :’D I might refine this one actually.

I like the first one actually, though I wanted to make it more animated. On the other hand, the second one looks too busy IMHO. Well, which do you think is better or should I say, closer to what should be happening?

Don&#8217;t you just want to tell the world how fabulous you are? &lt;3 Now start telling everyone, because you are you, and you are wonderful. You are fabulous just the way you are!
Decided to join DeviantART contest&#8217;s WeChat sticker challenge and it was fun! Made in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop for about 6-8 hours.  I might do more in a little while :B

Wish me luck!

I animated my previous post and added a simple snowfall animation. It was really fun 8D!

Don’t mind the blog layout. I still don’t know how to fix it :B

An illustration based from the heartwarming quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic tale, The Little Prince. I really enjoyed making this one :’D

Enjoy the big and especially the little things life has to offer. Smile, continue to love and always see and feel the happiness. Hope you’ll enjoy this :)

EDIT: I might animate this one later on
