The two short manga stories (both completed) I made, both for the Circle Nippon-Doujinshi! Right now I'm busy with a 3rd story about a shinigami!
Ten Letters to Love You - Cover by ICanReachTheStarsTen Letters to Love You - Page 1 by ICanReachTheStarsTen Letters to Love You - Page 10 by ICanReachTheStars
Ten Letters to Love You, 17 pages, shoujo-ai, about a girl named Karu who writes loveletters to another girl, claiming she's delivering them for a secret lover- but they are hers! The girl thinks the writer is male and starts to fall in love with his personality.. but what about Karu? All pages can be find in my gallery and on my Smackjeeves! Published in Nippon's "Love is Love", a shounen-ai/shoujo-ai/yaoi-/yuri manga.
Guitar Gytha and Singing Sammy - COVER by ICanReachTheStarsGuitar Gytha and Singing Sammy - Page 4 by ICanReachTheStarsGuitar Gytha and Singing Sammy - Page 7 by ICanReachTheStars Guitar Gytha & Singing Sammy
12 pages, a story about a girl and her dog trying to become famous- by impressing a guy who might be able to make her into a star! But.. Gitami's tactics of impressing someone are, to say it nice.. a liiiitle odd. Pages can be found in my gallery in their own Folder. Published in Nippon's "Bring the music on!", a manga all about music.

- Just look at my gallery; girls, best range of age is 12 - 18. But about every age is possible for me for women/girls :)
- Young boys/shota's.
- Fantasy, magic, fairies angels half-robots half-animals magical girls etc : D
- Fanart

For ACEOs:
- Bg's that are colors and effects only
- Bg's that have realistic elements, most likely things like clouds, water, plants, flowers, but actually about anything is fine. Except buildings :') (but landscapes from any kind, or "magical' background, etc are fine ^^)
For paperchildren:
- Extra effects such as flying around feathers, ribbons, shards, etc
- Both standing and leaping/floating poses
- Both "posing" and "acting"

I do more than just this, so please ask if you are wondering :)

Tsunacon 2015!

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 22, 2015, 6:28 AM
Hii everyone!! 8D

Before I start, the past few days I've had insane amounts of pageviews??? I didn't even post anything or stuff, so what's going on? o_____o Are you all waiting for my Journal about how Tsunacon was? x'DD Well here it is! 8') (But seriously if anyone knows what's going on please do tell me;; I even googled 'icanreachthestars' to find out lmao) 

So last week it was finally the day of Tsunacon! *W* Saviroosje and XxSaChan stayed over so the next morning the three of us could go to Tsunacon where we'd meet sekaiichihappy and MimiStars :3 Once we found our table we it was time to carefully place all our prints, buttons, bookmarks and keychains *W* Saviroosje's dad made a special rack for the keychains and I also brought a basket with free candy for passerby people 8D (Although we ourselves also ate like 1/10th of it lmao especially thanks to me xdd I just can't resist candy urghhhh). In the end we had this really cute and colorfull table filled with prints and baskets with buttons lying on a pink table sheet *W* I think it really resembled our circle well :3 After that we had one more hour left until the dealerroom opened so we went to explore it B) And as 11 o'clock neared my nerves grew worse omg;;; There was this HUGE queue of people at the door of the dealerroom which made my nerves even worse hahha;; After all this was our first time as a circle in a dealerroom so we had no idea what to expect and how things'd go! 

And then at 11 o'clock.. the queue outside suddenly started stirring and shouting.. and suddenly.. people burst into the just-opened dealerroom and it all started waaah!! I was seated behind our table on a small table we brought so I could draw, so I just tried drawing in an attempt to idk look cool and not intimidate people??;; (I mean at that moment there were 5 of us and 5 people staring at you isn't cool so yeah xd). And after a few minutes the other girls were like "Tessa omg we made a sale!!!" and I was like "Whaaat- NO WAY OMG THANK YOU PERSON!!" ahha;;; I just couldn't believe someone actually bought a thing!! ;___; Like we've worked so dang hard on everything so selling something was just incredible QwQ And after that.. more and more people came and bought stuff!! So many people picked up the buttons I drew and went "oohhh these are so cute!!""Look at this!" WAAAHHHH >/////////< I tried drawing but omg all I could do was look at all these passerby people looking at our merch and some praising it or buying stuff QwQ It filled me with incredible happiness <333 Our Tokyo Ghoul print made by Saviroosje and Kaneki keychain made by XxSaChan sould out within the first hours!! Seems like it's quite a popular show even in the Netherlands haha ~ (And I got to talk to some other TG fans! *W*) Some people also came to pick up the commissions I did for them!! :D It made me really happy to see how happy they were with their commish ;W; :heart: I also hugged so many of them whahahha;; (But it's just!! They're so sweet!! Some people commissioned me and ALSO bought stuff from our circle and others had drawn stuff for me and whatnot and omg ;_____; :heart: :heart: :heart: I just couldn't believe it and apperentally I looked so overwhelmed people even thought I started crying hahaha;;; //I wasn't crying btw like not on the outside but on the inside I shed many tears of joy xd :heart:) And I also saw many many familiar faces which was also fun!! *W* Friends everywhere aaahhh I thank the internet for that <33

Anyways, as you can understand by now, stuff went pretty darn well!!! It went better than I could ever have dared to dream!! Stardrops is my dream and passion and I worked so so hard on it, so this was such an amazing 'reward' for my and all of our members' hard work! ;___; Personally, I spend about 31 + 12 + 12 + 20 = 75 hours on the artwork I did (Although the ORAS print wasn't specifically drawn for this so you could also say 63 hours xd) and maaaaany many hours on organising stuff, making keychains, working on our fb page, WORRYING xd, etc! And it was allll worth it and I'd do it all again in a heartbeat! I love drawing for my circle and making merch and the time in the dealerroom was so amazing QwQ It makes me happy when our art makes people happy and they think it's cute or pretty, and I had so much fun chatting with the passerby people! One thing I know for sure, is that I wish to do this for as long as I can :heart:

Anyways, back to how the day went. The first few hours felt muuuuch longer than they actually were xd These were also the crazy hours were sometimes we'd be helping two people at the same time!! O: Good thing is that we brought a LOT change money so we could easily help people and give change and whatnot :3 We were like a machine haha, one person who help someone who wanted to buy something and if it was a print, put it in a plastic map (with the stardrops logo as a sticker on it B) ) and get their change while someone else would write down what we sold xd We made sure there were always two people behind our stand :3 Thanks to our big group this was easy enough haha, especially after 100procent-Juul arrived around 1 o'clock! :D We also took a group picture with our stand on it back then hehe *W* It's such a nice picture, I'll treasure it forever >U< I had lots of fun with these girls!! We work well togheter, our styles match, we help eachother out- I couldn't have wishes for better people than these girls to form a circle with! <3333 At the end of the day only three of us were left since some people had to leave earlier, but that wasn't a problem since at the end it became quite quiet in the dealerroom 8'D So once it closed we packed our stuff, cleaned the stand and all went our ways :3 

In the end, 3 of our prints sold out!! Some of the keychains sold out as well, and as for the buttons.. we started the day with 75 buttons, and ended with only 6 left!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE SO MANY PEOPLE BOUGHT BUTTONS WITH MY DESIGNS WAAAHHHH Q______Q Every time I think about this I get filled with happiness omg <333 The eeveelutions sold out within the first hours and we also had people who came to ask about them!! ;O; And even now we have people who want a pokemon button!! ;w; (But all I have left are 6 Arcanine's waahhh) So we'll defenitely be restocking those haha! QwQ Ah and I also did some more commissions on the convention! :D In the end I did a total of 8 commishes and I'm completely out of drawing motivation now haha xd But I don't mind, I was honored to draw for others!! <333 

Long story short, I had an amazing and succesfull day spend with my amazing circle-members Saviroosje, XxSaChan, sekaiichihappy, MimiStars and 100procent-Juul, chatted with lots of people, hugged lots of people, got presents(!!!), had tons of fun and was tired - as - fuck at the end of the day haha x'D But it was all worth it!! <3333

6 deviants said Not very, I watch many people and am not picky at all
6 deviants said Very picky, the person has to have really great art that makes me want to see more of them!
