Burning Last Year's Memories by Nyanfood Burning Last Year's Memories by Nyanfood
Stars at my fingers and time at my feet,
I set fire to a brief history.
To ashes and dust, the pages retreat,
and to ashes to dust goes my memory.

The good, let glory be its name,
igniting in all but a blaze.
The bad, these lessons, lit the same,
in brilliance and honor to fog and haze.

The future clasps me by the hand.
For promises new and promises old,
it gives me the Gift most in demand.
Time in the Present, priceless, unfold.


+ Happy New Year +

I saw the drawing of your OC in zeiva's style, and was curious what it looked like in yours! I was so surprised at your skill! :D I'm going to watch you. Keep up the great work!

I love the simplicity of the background! it keeps my attention focused on her and the foreground-she's beautiful, but her eyes creep me out just a little bit XD

They're supposed to. XD;;; Pupil-less, glass-like eyes. I have a love for creepy characters... Dunno why.

I'm all for creepy eyes, but the rest is just so soft and pretty that it just seems out of place

She's wearing an interesting dress! :O
Neat paper-burning effect! :D
I also love the icy-feel this picture gives... yet, there's no ice. :O

Ah, the roses wedding dress. Kotori is often represented by black roses. I changed them to white to suit the occasion and stand out against the dark background (I rarely draw anything white!) She's known in the plot for being a bit of an ice queen and a tsundere, and for having a tragic and unfortunate history of mishaps, thus coldness suited her. However, she's also known for having pride to a fault and being unable to express herself thus resorting to glaring and seething words, so the fire also suited her. She's a "cold fire."

Aaw, it's soo good *_* I wish I could draw like that...


It's a shame my family won't let me talk to you...
My sister must think you're a creeper...I mean, the look on her face when you left the store pissed me off...D< God, why can't I have friends ;_;

Ahahahahaha! XD!!! I mean, she has the right to be angry. I'm definitely biased about southerners. Part of it is the language barrier since the accent throws me off. I'm biased against anyone who can't make themselves understandable in plain English. XD;;;

None of us really have a southern accent...And I don't, of course :p

It's just...well, I dunno. I guess they were being cautious cause you're older than me..

Probs. Well, one day you'll be older and break free of other people making choices for you. I freely dislike people and throw out my biases but I know I'm being biased. They should have the same right to throw their cautions out there as well. It's all fair game. XD

Yeah...
But I doubt you're a creeper lol
Just a fellow anime fan 8D

Speaking of anime, I haven't watched any in a long time..My art style changed drastically too.
No longer anime form.

Oh, Bakuman. I don't read Bakugan. I must've misread. It's a manga about drawing manga.
