A Very Asian Day

Somehow today was very Asian. First, we had a lunch in a Chinese restaurant.

Mandarin Palace in Sello

Then I returned these books to the library:

Fan Art: Atsushi Sakurai

I rarely draw men, because it's harder for me, but sometimes I still try, and here is one of my recent attempts.

Igu Day Fanart

Today is 19th which means it's exist†trace's day! Their name is pronounced as igujisuto toreisu in Japanese, and “igu” sounds like 19. ;-)


I wanted to portray how the band looks like in their video comments. Usually two of them are normal, two are sleeping and one is hyper. (*^▽^*)

miko is holding Cheburashka, the unofficial band member.
Will we ever hear Cheburashka's back vocals?

Lots of hyperness here.

Fanart: Diamond Warrior Mally

It's fanart time again! (^o^)

I imagined Mally, drummer of exist†trace, as a warrior in samurai-inspired armour, and here is the result.


To be honest, I love the colours a lot.(^u^)

We play this, we play that

Sometimes it's hard to introduce someone to a new band, when their sound is so diverse that you don't know which song is The Song, the one that reflect the essence of the band the most. Some of my favourite bands are like that, switching from aggressive metal to soft ballads to pop-rock to something darker like it's no big deal. And the vocalists who can handle different styles of singing are the best!

I can't feature everyone here, sorry my dear Janne Da Arc, Dead Can Dance, Lacrimosa and many others. Only five bands tonight.

Nightwish (Finland)

Romanticide (vocals: Floor Jansen)


Slow Love Slow (vocals: Anette Olzon)

Finnish dogs. Финские собаченции

Finns love dogs, there are lots of Canis everywhere I go. :-)
Любят финны собак, куда не пойдёшь везде псинки. :-)
