Derek-shirt Spread2 by JDWasabi Derek-shirt Spread2 by JDWasabi
Some of you may or may not know that I've been playing Japanese Taiko drums for the past 9 months or so.  I'm working towards my first performance gig which is also my classmate's 50th birthday party XD So the reason I've missed last week's Fanart Friday was because I was working on some shirt designs for him.

The Mitsudomoe design is synonymous with Taiko groups and this design is modified to look like koi fishes.  The Kanji is in the lower left means '50'.  Still working on tweaking the final designs but yeh I've been a busy bee.  I'm not the best at using the pen tool on Photoshop but I should properly learn how to use Illustrator at some point because I always seem to be dipping my fingers in design more often than expected XD.

I'm also taking up flute lessons! My teacher gave me a Japanese Shinobue so I can't wait to start looking at that properly too.  I think I'm doing too many things at once so I really need to be careful and not burn out. //crai  If you don't hear from me for a while on dA it's probably because I'm working on a bazillion projects at once and/or burning out and just dying XD 

Hope everyone's doing good!


ps HW update: 2/3 backgrounds have been designed for the first Episode of HW, currently working on the 3rd.  The other 2 are being 3D-a-fied, use of colours are coming up to be finalised, script is pretty much done apart from a few tweaks and a section needs to be re-written. Asset lists are happening. Probably of a July release is high if we keep the momentum up! Wooooo
