Ninja Kurogane


This is an artwork I made in July 2010 for a kind of contest where a publishing house asked for fanarts of "Tsubasa RESERvoir CHRoNiCLE" and some of them would be chosen for being published in the Spanish edition of the "TSUBASA CARACTere GuiDE" Vol.1, so I drew this one of Kuronane, my favourite character, with Mokona and try my luck. This illustration was one of the fanarts chosen! If you have this guide, you can find it in the page 175:

Elegant Kiss -Art Trade with "yumiko12345"-


This was my part of an Art Trade I make with yumiko12345 on dA in 2010. She asked me for something beautiful with Kurama (Yu Yu Hakusho) and her OC Lexi wearing this dress. Kurama is wearing outfits inspired in Kamijo, from the J-rock band Versailles :D 

In return, she wrote this story for me: link

Girls Fight -Art trade with "frijole007"-


This was my part of an Art Trade I make with frijole007 (now anobouzu) on dA in 2010. This person asked me to draw her OC Daiyu and her persona fighting over Genjo Sanzo from Saiyuki in a chibi form. It was fun to draw this and a good chance to draw chibis. At that time, I still had to improve at drawing them.

I'm sorry, but I can't give a link to the drawing she made for me because it has been removed T_T

Doki-Doki


These two are my OC's, Norlij and Danielle. They’re and odd couple formed by a demon (Norlij) and a half vampire (Danielle), but they love and respect each other. It seems they’re having fun in their date.

I didn’t get interesting ideas of which clothes to draw on them, as I like to design the outfits my characters wear, so I downloaded an issue of the Japanese fashion magazine “Kera!” to get some ideas. Danielle wears clothes inspired on clothes I found in this magazine. They don’t look the same though. Norlij wears clothes similar to the ones my BJD Norlij has.

In this picture they look big headed. Why?! I corrected the sketch a few times, but both characters are still big headed TT_TT  As for the hands... hands are really difficult to draw. I know they look a bit weird ¬¬

Party Octopus


This is a drawing, made in 2010, was originally created as a Birthday card a few years ago. I made a pair copies of it and I sent them to pen-pals I had at that time. The original one was made with markers and it doesn't look as beautiful as this one.

Yes, I know this drawing looks different to the stuff I use to draw. I hope you like it anyway.

Back to School

Versailles Philharmonic Quintet


This is my first fanart of the Japanese band Versailles Philharmonic Quintet, drawn in 2010.

It was quite hard to draw this illustration, it took me almost a month to colour it and sometimes I felt like if I’d never finish it. The outfits were very difficult to draw! Yes, they’ve worn these outfits: [link] and [link]. They all are men, including the two ones who wear a dress! Unfortunately, Jasmine You passed away in August 2009. That’s why I’ve drawn him like if he were the spirit who’s taking care of the band, as he will be a Versailles member forever. Masashi isn’t drawn here because I drew this one when he wasn’t an official member yet.

And remember: Versailles will rule the world with roses!!

Year of the Dragon 2012


龙年快乐! (Happy year of the dragon!)

I hope this year of the dragon will be a good one for everybody. In Chinese culture, this mythical beast is a symbol of good luck and prosperity.

It’s been really fun to draw this little dragon, it looks very similar to the idea I had in my mind. Even I like what it looks like! I’m very bad at drawing animals and I finished the sketch of this one in 30 minutes, I’m very surprised.

S is for Snow


I drew this one in 2010 for an activity in a dA group. The theme was "Letter S", so S is for Snow. For Sadness as well, but finally Nakago doesn’t look as sad as in the sketch is…

I’m sorry if this fanart looks as simple… I wanted to add a hand too, but I forgot about this detail… ¬¬

Nakago


This is my first fanart of Nakago, from Fushigi Yûgi, done in 2010. I still love this manga & anime, the characters are charismatic and, though the story isn't very original, it's pretty entertaining. Nakago is my favourite Fushigi Yûgi character, together with Tasuki and Hotohori. This guy was evil, but he had reasons to be this way.

Kiriban prize for "frijole007"


I made this arwork in 2010 as a gift for a dA user who has left this site, frijole007. This person was the winner of the Kiriban 5000 game in my dA account, so as prize got this fanart.

I’m not into "Saiyuki", in fact I know this anime/manga from the few pics I’ve seen in magazines and around the net, so it was an interesting experience to draw a character I’m not familiar with, as Sanzo.

Hi, welcome!!

This is Lily, the administrator of this blog. After much thought, finally I decided to write a blog about my artwork. Here you’ll find my illustrations, though I’ll maybe write tutorials and upload WIP. 

I think I’ve left everything organized and linked with their respective sites, but if you find something wrong, just let me know and I’ll correct it immediately. There are a few things which aren’t complete yet, I’ll keep working on them in the next days.

I hope this is of your liking. Also, it would make me glad if you like, appreciate and respect my work. 

Thanks a lot for your visit and enjoy!!

F.A.Q. (Español)

SOBRE EL BLOG

- ¿Por qué escribes tu blog en inglés y no en español? 
La mayoría de mis seguidores provienen de países en los que no son de habla española, así que es mucho más sencillo para ellos que escriba en inglés. Si no te defiendes bien con este idioma, tengo habilitado un traductor que puede traducirte toda mi página en español... aunque el resultado no sea tan bueno. 

SOBRE MIS DIBUJOS 

- ¿Puedo usar tus dibujos para hacer avatares/firmas/wallpapers/... o usarlos en otras páginas? 
No, no puedes usar mis dibujos, tampoco modificarlos. Me ha llevado su tiempo hacer cada uno de ellos, así que no quiero que nadie se beneficie de mi esfuerzo. 

- ¿Por qué tus dibujos tienen unas marcas de agua tan grandes?
Es para protegerlas de los ladrones aunque esto tenga como consecuencia que los dibujos no se vean tan bonitos. No es tan fácil editar una imagen que tenga unas marcas de agua tan grandes.

- ¿Qué herramientas utilizas para dibujar y colorear tus ilustraciones? 
Los bocetos los hago a lápiz sobre un papel y lo escaneo para darle el color con Easy Tool Sai y Photoshop CS2 usando una tableta gráfica Bamboo Fun. A veces uso otros programas como Manga Studio EX 3.0 o Art Rage2.

- ¿Haces Art Trades (intercambio de dibujos)?
Si tienes una cuenta en deviantART , me puedes enviar una nota privada.

NOTA: Antes de enviar una nota para pedir un Art Trade, lee las normas aquí: [link]

- ¿Haces colaboraciones?
La respuesta es la misma que en la pregunta anterior.

NOTA: Pronto pondré las normas para pedir colaboraciones.

- ¿Aceptas peticiones?
Lo siento, ya no acepto peticiones.

- ¿Haces comisiones?
Por ahora no hago, pero es algo que pensaré en un futuro.

- ¿Qué tengo que hacer para que me hagas un dibujo de regalo? 
Si eres mi amig@ en mi vida real, puedes recibir regalos sorpresa ^^

- ¿Por qué no dibujas fanarts sobre yaoi/yuri? 
No dibujo este tipo de fanarts si en la historia original los personajes no son homosexuales, no hay otra explicación. Tampoco me sirve el "aunque el autor no lo especifique, los personajes lo parecen/hacen buena pareja". En cuanto al manga yaoi/yuri, no me interesa este tipo de manga (no es nada personal, es simplemente que lo que he leído no me ha cautivado) así que no conozco a muchos personajes sobre estos géneros de manga. 

Por favor, debes entender que solo estoy en contra del slash y el abuso a personajes en general, no estoy en contra del yaoi/yuri.

Si tienes alguna pregunta que no esté aquí, no dudes en preguntar.

Art Trades - Normas (Español)


CÓMO PEDIR UN ART-TRADE

● Si estás interesad@ en hacer un Art-Trade conmigo, debes tener una cuenta en MangaBullet o deviantART. Solo tienes que enviarme un mensaje privado con el tema "Art Trade" y una descripción detallada de lo que quieres que te dibuje. Si tienes ejemplos visuales, serán muy apreciados.

NOTA: Si me pides el art trade a través de deviantART, obtendrás mi parte del art trade a través de MangaBullet y también lo subiré en este blog ya que estoy en hiatus en deviantART y por lo tanto, no estoy en activo en esa página y leo/contesto mensajes de tarde en tarde.

● Puedes pedir 2 personajes como máximo en un mismo dibujo.

● No te olvides de incluir detalles de cómo es tu personaje y enviarme enlaces de tu personaje o los  personajes  manga/anime si es posible para tener referencias.

● Puedes pedir por un dibujo a color o en blanco y negro (puedes pedirlos con tramas).

● Si no estoy conforme con tu petición del Art Trade, lo rechazaré. 

● Ten paciencia si tardo en terminar tu Art Trade ya que también tengo otras preocupaciones en mi vida real.


● Utilizo los programas: Photoshop CS2Art Rage2 or Manga Studio EX 0.3 para colorear mis dibujos o añadir tramas. 

ACEPTO

Fanarts. Pueden ser de cualquier anime/manga. Si es de otro estilo, como superhéroes, el dibujo lo haré a mi estilo. Si me pides que dibuje a una persona real, la dibujaré a mi estilo manga ya que el estilo realista se me da fatal.

Tus personajes originales. Si quieres que lo/s dibuje con alguno de mis personajes originales, puedes solicitarlo siempre que no se trate de un tema amoroso entre ellos. Mis personajes tienen su propia historia y algunos tienen pareja. 

● Chibis. Si no me lo especificas en tu solicitud, dibujaré al/los personaje/s como crea más oportuno. 

● Si tu personaje usa un arma, ten en cuenta que no estoy acostumbrada a dibujar armas y nunca he dibujado armas de fuego. 

NO ACEPTO

Ningún tipo de abuso/slash. Esto incluye Yaoi/Shonen Ai, Yuri/Shojo Ai si el personaje no es homosexual en la serie original. No me sirve la excusa "aunque el autor original no lo haya especificado, los personajes parecen homosexuales/hacen buena pareja". Tampoco pidas que dibuje personajes homosexuales convertidos en hetero ni/o relaciones entre un/a niñ@ y un adulto.  

Hentai. Poses obscenas ni partes inapropiadas. Chicos y chicas sexys y sensuales es aceptable. 

Demasiada violencia, gore ni escenas abusivas.

Arte relacionado con odio. Si odias alguna cosa, es tu problema y por lo tanto, no quiero verme involucrada en ello.  

OCxCanon fanarts (personaje original x personaje oficial). Deben ser o tus personajes originales o personajes oficiales, no juntos. Estoy bastante harta de este tipo de parejas, lo siento. Si tu personaje original te representa a tí, puede hacer una excepción. 

Animales, criaturas peludas y anthro. No tengo demasiada confianza para aceptar este tipo de dibujos ya que no se me da muy bien dibujar este tipo de personajes. 

Mecha, robots, alta tecnología, coches y edificios.

SI NO ACEPTAS ESTAS NORMAS, NO ME PIDAS UN ART-TRADE, POR FAVOR.

Art Trades rules (English)

HOW TO ORDER AN ART-TRADE

● If you’re interested in making an Art Trade with me, you must have an account at MangaBullet or deviantART. Just send a private note with the subject "Art Trade" and a detailed description of what you want me to draw. If you have visual examples, they are very welcome.

NOTE: If you ask me for an art trade on deviantART, you’ll get my part of the art trade via MangaBullet and it will also be uploaded in this blog as I’m on hiatus on deviantART and this means that I’m not active in that site and read/reply messages from time to time.

● You can ask for 2 characters maximum.

● Don’t forget to include a good explanation of how your character is and send links of your OC’s or manga/anime characters if possible to have a reference.

● I use digital media to colour my artworks: Photoshop CS2Art Rage2 or Manga Studio EX 0.3

● You can ask for a colour or a black & white artwork. You can ask with tones added.

● If I don’t agree with your Art Trade request, I’ll refuse it.

● Be patient with me if I take a long time to finish your Art Trade because I have other matters in real life.

I TAKE

Fanarts. They can be from any manga/anime. If it’s from another style as superheroes, they will be drawn in my own style. If you ask me to draw a real person, I will draw them in my manga style because my realistic style sucks.

Your OCs. If you want them to be drawn with any of my OCs, you can request as long as it’s not love themed related between them. My OCs have their own story and some of them have their beloved one.

● Chibis. If you don’t specify in your request, I’ll draw the character/s as I thing they will better look

● If your character uses a weapon, please note that I’m not used to draw them and I have never draw any kind of firearms.

I DON’T TAKE

Any kind of slash/character abuse. This includes Yaoi/Shonen Ai, Yuri/Shojo Ai if the character is non well know as being homosexual in the original series. I don’t accept the excuse "although the original author hasn't specify, the characters seem to be homosexual/make a good couple". Neither ask for homosexual characters into straight and/or child x adult relationship. 

Hentai. Inappropriate parts and obscene poses. Sensual and sexy boys and girls are ok.

Too much violence, gore and abusive scenes.

● Hate art. If you hate anything, is your problem and I don’t want to get involved into them.

OCxCanon fanarts. They must be your OCs or canon characters, not all together, I'm pretty tired of these kind of couples, sorry. If your OC represents yourself, I can make an exception.

Animals, furry and anthro. I’m not confidence enough as for taking them for Art Trades.

Mecha, robots, high technology, cars and buildings.

IF YOU DON’T ACCEPT THESE RULES, DON’T ASK ME FOR AN ART TRADE, PLEASE
