My stories

div class="gr-box gr-headless">

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 :)

Update about life in general ~

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 7, 2014, 4:47 AM
Hey guys!

Man it's been a while since I last wrote a Journal like this hhmm.. updates about my art and my life!

As you might now, starting this year I'm going to college! Yup, I'm a student now 8') I'm studying Forest and Nature Conservation at Wageningen University (one of the best uni's of the Netherlands woop woop, go Wageningen!) Since uni is about 2 hours traveling from my home, I moved to the nearby town Ede and now live there during the week. Right now it's weekend so I'm at home, but tonight after dinner I'll go back to Ede again for my 2nd week! So far it's been pretty okay, some parts are interesting and others are less. I have long days (I leave at 8 am and come back home around 5:30 pm) and already 2 projects and other stuff to work on;; But I'll just tough it out just like I did with the uninteresting partsof high school, knowing that uni will become more and more interesting as I get more freedom in choosing subjects starting the 2nd and 3rd year! 

I don't have a lot of free time atm since I also have to cook and clean and everything myself now :C Luckely I could't have wished for better roommates so I'm always happy to come home and cook togheter with them! C: About my roommates; I live in an appartement for 5 people; 1 is currently in Japan (!!!) till October and I haven't met them yet. Another just moved last week (without telling us beforehand and he also took the electric cooking plate.. with 1 day notice... ASSHOLE) and the other two I live with now are a boy and girl my age. Sometimes we sit down in the kitchen and time just flies as we talk about stuff, rant about our roommate who took the cooking plate, sing Frozen songs (xd), etc ~ We all pretty much have the same idea of how we'd like to live our student life so that's really great! C: I really hope that the new roommate who will arive the 22nd of September will have the same ideas (rather than "guys, I want a bench on beer crates!" or "Cleaning is overrated" or idk).

Uhh yeah I was going to write about how I have less time and thus less time for art, but then I got distracted by writing about my awesome roommates;; Woops xd But now it's time for an art update! 
I'm currently busy with many different things and it's all kinda confusing;; I have a Puella Magi drawing formy circle Stardrops-Doujinshi that needs to be finished by the end of the month, I have contest prizes for ManonHetalia that I still need to continue, the superdetailed drawing, my manga, and something new I discovered a few days ago: Altering cards of the card game Magic The Gathering (anyone here who knows/plays it? Or alters cards? My roommate plays it and he asked if I was perhaps able to edit them. I tried 3 cards so far 2 came out really great and I'm kinda thinking of turning this into a part time job xd But more about this later!) 
I don't have a lot of time to work on stuff, so I'll be working mainly on things that have priority right now, which is my Puella Magi drawing. After that, I hope to do the contest prizes.

About commissions; I was thinking of opening 2 slots but with the con that it will take me atleast half a year, but for the sake of at least opening commishes and not feeling my free time with other stuff;; But at the same time, I already have so much to do, I don't want to push myself too much;; So for now the'll remain closed.. Sorry ;____;

Alright I've written wayyyy too much again 8') I also have homework that still needs to be finished and after that I have a Just Dance-appointment xd (aka gaming at my friend's house woop woop!) Oh and I just remembered I still have another water color drawing! I'll go upload that now too ~ Also, if you want to see the Magic The Gathering cards alters I did, I uploaded them to my IG ~ (xICanReachTheStars)

Byee byeee! Thanks for reading, if you read it whole, comment "cookie" and you'll get a virtuel cookie! 8) What a great deal!
