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.

- 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 :)

My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 2:18 AM
Today marks dA's 14th birthday and of course, I want that lovely "14" badge haha ~ It also marks the day BEFORE... my account's 4th birthday! That's right, 3 years and 364 days ago, I joined dA C: So let's take a look at how I've grown through the years- My deviantART Story!
Ribbons and rouches by ICanReachTheStars

My very first artwork here! It was also the first time I scanned a drawing haha.
Kameko and Rayray friend pic by ICanReachTheStars

My first collaboration with my first ever internet friend that didn't live in the Netherlands.. nope, rayray18 lives all the way in Kuwait! But that's the miracle of internet, distance doesn't matter anymore C:
First copic colored drawing by ICanReachTheStars

I bought copics! I got them for my 15th birthday (November 2010). Who would have known back then how much these markers would become my babies haha.
Red Roses can't thorn the Moon by ICanReachTheStars

In 2011 my works finally started to become better! I found Paint Tool SAI and got lots of critiques on dA and other sites! I was inspired by all the artists I saw here and determined to become just as good as them!
Don't mess with Time, or it'll mess with You! by ICanReachTheStars

And I'm on my way there! My first Daily Deviation!! Received on June 18th, 2013! <33
Ten Letters to Love You - Cover by ICanReachTheStars

I don't think I ever could have made my own short manga without being inspired by all the artists that I saw making them, and of course, the doujinshi circle for which I made it. And this circle found me- you can already guess it- through DeviantArt!
Cherriuki Gift - Kurohana and Tamari by ICanReachTheStars

Through DeviantArt I also found these things named "ACEOs" and "paperchildren"! Where would I be without them? Or rather, where would my commissions be haha.
Aniway Organiser - Fallen Angel by ICanReachTheStars

And here we are today, (almost!) 4 years later! dA has tought me SO much about art, whether it's about different mediums or other types of art, about my OWN art and how everyone can become a better artists, as long as you never give up. It has also given me many friends from all around the world and has shown me the best artists that I could never have come across without internet access (Thanks internet, luv ya c; ) I just love dA and I hope I can continue on her and one day reach my dream, become a superduper awesome artist! 8) Thank you for giving me the start towards that dream deviantART!

Hi Tessa! Nice to meet you! You left a letter in my room during the AID (cool that you come to study here!). I really liked it that you like my drawings. En ja ik houd idd van manga en magical girls. Zo te zien jij ook :D. Jou tekeningen zijn ook gaaf zeg, echt mooi met al die details. Wat leuk dat je ook voor een doujinshi hebt getekend! Ben je ook wel eens op een conventie geweest met de circle? (ik ben daar bijna altijd te vinden in de tekenruimte ;) ). Ik ben benieuwd wat je van mijn andere tekeningen vind en ik hoop dat je een hele leuke AID hebt gehad! Ik moet nu eten koken (XD) maar ik zal jou tekeningen ook eens doorkijken. Die op je pagina zien er gaaf uit in ieder geval!

ICanReachTheStars Featured By Owner 2 days ago   General Artist
Yooo! : D Sorry voor het late antwoord, ik was twee weekjes kamperen en had niet echt een laptop + goede wifi ter beschikking om goed te kunnen replyen D:

Met mij gaat alles goed! :3 Zowel qua leven als qua art haha ~ Ik zit nu in een eigen doujinshi circle met de meiden van m'n vorige circle + een goede vriendin van me die hun ook al kende C: En we staan volgend jaar op Tsuna dus dat wordt vast super gezellie 8D En ik ga dit jaar studeren in Wageningen! (Dus ik moet het huis uit :') Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel (ligt bijna in Rotterdam) ligt voor het mooie té ver van Wageningen vandaan @____@)

Hoe gaattie met jou? C:
