Hello everyone!! Haha where to start....?
Well, I felt bad for not having posted in such a long time, so I thought it'd only be appropriate that I post a pic that I've been working VERY hard on and was a really huge project of mine.
I drew this about three years ago after ~KeybladeMewKasa once left a comment on one of my drawings a long time ago saying "How come no one includes my Kingdom Hearts OCs in any of their big projects?" hahaha so I started on this as a fun little thing of my KH OC along with other peoples' characters!
Thing was, though, after inking it all in excitedly (yes, by hand), my coloring skills at the time were awful and I messed up one of the panels SO badly that I cried and refused to look at it for two years haha.
And then I decided to pick it up again to see if I had improved or not! Lineart had to be retraced via SAI again so I could try again, but I was determined to finish!
The first 7 panels were done over November and December of last year. I finally finished panels 8 and 9 in January and July, respectively.
So yes-- this is dedicated to you, ~KeybladeMewKasa!
And I wanted to give SUPER special mention to ~ChibiKingSama for teaching me his scanning ways!! I couldn't have been able to post this without his help and support! >//< Thank you so much!

But anyway, it's beautiful!!!!!
; u; ahhhh love the coloring and as i've said before you draw flowers so nicely~ <3
it's a shame the whole KH OC group thing kinda died...we should try to revive all of them! ; o;
I rather enjoy that.
Thank you so much though!! <33 I appreciate it and I'm glad you were amused! haha <3
this is a beautiful and amazing piece q vq i'm glad to see that you've finished it after
three years. i'm glad you didn't give up in the end because the results must be
satisfying! your traditional coloring and coloring style is still so beautiful q vq i don't
know why you don't think so! i've always admired your artwork because of your
style, techniques, skills, and more! ♥ you cease to amaze me with your art! ♥♥♥
Also, I'll be in Japan August 25th! Any chance I might see you there? (I'll be in Japan from August to June of next year so...lol) <3
Eh, she was kind of a nobody to begin with anyway.
No matter, this is so BEAUTIFUL! I return from a tiring 4-day long anime convention to this lovely project~
All the details and colors~ I'm glad King-sama helped you with that~
You did a fantastic job, Sayura-chan~
Welcome back from the convention! Are you going to make a journal about it perhaps? ^^
Thank you so so much for the sweet comment! >__< King-san helped me with the scanning process haha since I just didn't know what I was doing wrong with scanning my works so he gave me some really helpful tips and yeah. ^^
Hope all is well Nade-chan and thank you thank you!!
Along with Zeke.
Good to be back. It was so much fun!
And yes I will when I have the time after talking with my Persona Group about all the photos and aftermath. XD
I did the lines and boxes all myself by hand in pen originally on one sheet haha. But when I messed up on the coloring two years ago and wanted to try again, I had to retrace the first three panels via SAI so the boxes also had to be redrawn to accommodate.
I'm glad you like all of them >.< The backgrounds for the first two panels were difficult haha but I wanted to try something new. I drew this back when I had trouble differentiating characters in my drawings (expressions or otherwise), so it's a relief that you find them individualistic. ^^
Thank you so much, Kaijin!!<3333 I really am grateful for your kind words always! >.<
you silly bunny, why would this amazing work disappoint anyone?
it's so beautiful<3 ;//v//;
and really nostalgic too XD
But yeah-- I was worried because I messed up on this soo horribly when I tried to color it two years ago, so it'd sadden me if it disappointed because I still feel like my coloring is SUPER amateurish T__T But thank you so much Sayoko-chan!! It was nostalgic for me too haha.
Quick question! Do you still have the scans of the old L&D pages? I asked you before but I think I forgot to respond to your reply and deleted it on accident! >.< Sorry!
I'm so sorry for the late reply! ;__;
I'm studying for a math placement exam in order to sign up for a college algebra class and it's taking way longer than I thought (I'm actually late and seats are running out, aaaahhh! XD).
I will let you know when I'm done so I can send you a note with a password-protected Photobucket album link to send you some of the L&D pages (I'm going to warn you that I'm not going to scan everything though - I'm going to especially omit most of the cheesy romance parts if you don't mind. I just feel so embarrassed looking back at those.. >//_//<; Sorry. )
anyway, on to your reply:
Unfortunately, I haven't talked to Sophia in a while. I hope she's okay. D:
and I don't think your coloring is amateurish at all, girrrrlll.
It be fabulous. :3
I especially love the top middle, mid right, and bottom middle girls. C:
And I'm glad you like Sakurie's panel (middle row third panel) a lot! I was really nervous about hers because I messed up her panel SO horribly the first time I tried coloring it two years ago haha.
Honestly, her panel was the first to catch my eye. Bright red sort of has that effect, though, I suppose, haha. I also love how she's the only one who isn't exactly staring at anything that the viewer can see. It makes Sakurie seem more mysterious or even curious, you could say. I definitely understand your drawing woes, though. I've tried recreating some of my older works for old time's sake, and it has just ended horribly on multiple occasions. *sob*
Ur traditional coloring is awesome like usual! this pic seem it took so much of hard work. Hope I can see more drawings from u, Sayu
The last one is my fav :>
