After I finished this, I spent the thirty minutes that followed staring at it. It’s as if my brain refused to accept the idea that I’m done with this after working on-off for three months. XD
I honestly hate this piece. I changed the background twice and the color scheme countless of times because the colors just won’t agree. In the end, I chose the ones I initially picked. How frustrating is that, huh?! I did enjoy painting the hair, the background, and her clothes, though! And I think prefer this method of painting over my previous ones even if it ate a huge chunk of my time.
I’ll be working on an RO fan art next. This is for the LU! Live Fan Art Contest. I’ve been dying to do an RO-related work for several months now and I think this is a good opportunity to do that? Besides, I like the theme for this year’s event. ;D

It’s here~! Welcome to Panagimpan 3.0: Counting Stars! The layout works well the latest versions of IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera. But! For the sake of your sanity and mine as well, please don’t use IE for browsing this site even if I told you that it’s working fine. ;D
The site’s actually been like this for about a week now but I was adding a few things to the site so I delayed the announcement. Here’s a list of the stuff I added:
» About - Updated the bio and added an FAQ section. I also added a small info about the site and a link to the previous versions. I’ll probably add a link to the pdf version of my resume in the future.
» Portfolio - Added a link to the Counting Stars illustration and removed crap-that-must-not-be-seen. XD
» Projects – Removed the link to the old “False Awakening” website. I also changed the FA working title to the final name I’ll be using. I’ll be updating with a new link to the site and a logo soon.
» Contact – New section! If you need me for something just drop me a note here!
» Exits – Replaced the old banners. Removed unnecessary links to the site. I’m now accepting link exchanges!
I honestly have a love-hate relationship with this layout. This has been revised several times and it even came to the point when I just wanted to scrap this and do something that will please me, lol. I stopped myself due to other things I have to do for finals (3D, GAMAUT, DIGIMED, OMFG!). Right now, I’m in between liking this and hating this. But I’ve been like this with all the other layouts I made before so I guess I can still live with it. At least it wasn’t as horrible as the website I passed for my HUCOMIN class two years ago… I’LL NEVER DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT EVER AGAIN! XD
By the way, I have decided to change the Panagimpan’s layout every year so I’ll have reason to practice my web design skills. I might go for something black, white, and gray next year… something cleaner? :)

When I opened the Windsong file, I was only intending to finish the artwork… I ended up erasing everything I’ve done and painting all of it again. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?! D:
The background shown here was the one I drew in the first draft. I had to change back to it because the colors for the character started PMS-ing and it jeopardized its peaceful relationship with the background. Some people suggested that I just correct the colors in Photoshop but I didn’t for three reasons: 1.) I’m lazy 2.) It would probably do more damage than good. If I wanted to achieve a certain effect, I’d always edit everything during the painting process and not after. It helps keep everything look unified in the final version. 3.) I’m lazy.
I’ll upload the background I scrapped as a separate piece, though. It’d be a waste to just throw it away since it already looked acceptable enough by itself.

What is this, I don’t even…
My schedule got fucked thrice this term. And I’m already quite happy with with my current schedule! Why do you have to change the schedule for every damn subject huh, Registrar?! You make me sad. It’s really a good thing that my schedule’s quite flexible but seriously?! SIX FUCKING DAYS?! Why do you hate me so much?
In other news, I’ll be changing the layout soon although I’m not yet sure when. Probably sometime next month. I still have to make few adjustments to the layout. I’ll also try to finish Windsong next week but lol, whenever I look at it now, I don’t feel like finishing it anymore. It seems the measure of how I like the finished work is inversely proportional to the amount of time I worked on it, OTL. XD

Aaaaaand DONE~ This is the Illustration for the Panagimpan 3.0′s new layout. I think this is the first time I posted a colored illustration without using any textures on it? I prefer this method since some of the textures I used before ruined the colors and this one gives me more control. ~_~
I’m going to post the layout version of this here once I’m done with the coding. Ah~ So many stuff to do~
