Journal Entry: Thu Feb 20, 2014, 9:17 PM

......i say this like people actually care this much XD......

but really, if you want to follow the whimsical art life of mine, here's the link to my tumblr!

It's Been an Artless Month!

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 9, 2013, 3:40 PM

Hey Everyone! I know I haven't been posting as much art lately but my time has been eaten away by a commissions I'm working on for friends as well as work and chores...

...not to mention I bought a 3DS XL recently and it's been consuming all my free time! Pokemon Y....WHY ARE YOU SO ADDICTING?!?!

anyway, I'll be uploading art again really soon and I'm hoping you will be patient with this little artist just a while longer~!

Pokemon Gijinka Contest Winner!!!!

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 2, 2013, 10:58 PM

It’s time to announce the winner of my Pokemon gijinka contest!


*snares rolling*

…..:iconlslove: !!! You are the winner of the contest with your Charizard Gijinka entry!

I really loved the way you put shadows and highlights into the girl’s hair and the fire effect was done professionally! Perhaps the flames are a tad stiff but you captured the luminescence and depth of fire extremely well! Not only the depth of the fire but I like how the character herself has both thick and thin lines in the lineart to add some dimension! Dynamics is important, especially when you’re drawing a pokemon like Charizard!

The gijinka is true to Charizard’s design but still original enough so that the artist was able to express their unique take on the pokemon! In essence, well done! You deserved this win!

Please send me a note so we can discuss your free commission soon my friend~! Once again, congratulations!

I've never held a contest before but I think it'll be fun to try it out! I'll go over the rules, how to enter, and what you will win :)

The theme of this contest is pokemon gijinka! If you guys don't know what a gijinka is, here's a good reference page with examples!…

It pretty much means to personify something that is otherwise not human! 

You don't need to be a pokemon fan to enter and can pick any pokemon to turn into a gijinka and I will choose the one that meets the criteria the best and draw them a little prize at the end :)


1) Anybody can enter, you don't even need to be my watcher XD

2) Create art of a pokemon gijinka using digital or traditional media (or both!) 

3) Once you have finished and posted your piece on deviantart, comment on this journal entry with a link to the piece and I will review it! You must do this last step or I won't consider it an entry for the contest!


1) I will allow for mature content in this contest

2) Gijinkas must be your own work! You can reference images of course but everything must be done with your own hands!

3) You can choose any pokemon but you can only enter ONCE

4) The winner will be announced on December 2nd via a new journal entry post!

***feel free to ask me questions if anything is unclear!***



I will be judging the pieces like this:

1) Quality of art: is it well done and looks like lots of effort was put into it?

2) Creativity: was the artist able to render a gijinka with great imagination but still able to maintain a resemblance to the original pokemon?

3) Impact: is it a piece that will give the viewer a lasting impression? Is it a fresh take on a pokemon's design?


The winner will receive a FREE commission from me of a single full body character of their choice (can be OC or FC) that is colored digitally with a simple background. Once I finish the piece (which might take a couple weeks...sorry!) I will send you the SAI or PS file (whichever you prefer) and a jpg image through Notes on DeviantART.

Good luck everybody!

Sorry I haven't posted anything in so long! There's the reason though, I'm working hard on a meme by :iconbriarwitch: and because there are so many panels to fill, it's a lengthier process than most of my regular artwork!

To tide you guys over though, it' on the winning Inheritance series couple of my poll...Murtagh and Nasuada! Eragon fans look forward to something to satisfy your shipping needs XD...(especially MxN lovers!)

....I'm considering doing a similar meme for Eragon and Arya...if you guys want one let me know! If demand for it is high enough I'll do one! :)

Here's a sneak peek...excited? XD

Thanks for your patience guys! I'll post the finished couples meme ASAP!

Time To Pretty Things Up!

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 8, 2013, 9:46 PM

I was lucky enough to be gifted a twelve month premium membership by the lovely :iconlslove: and I shall not have it go to waste! You may have noticed I've only been using the subfolders and poll options that my membership allows but let's do some Spring cleaning (erm...or Autumn cleaning?) and make my page look much fancier!

Here are two custom folder icons I've been working on for my gallery...I hope to make more soon...perhaps one for each subfolder in my main folders? Feel free to tell me your thoughts on how I should arrange my gallery!

For Fan Art! Miku and Link!   

Originals by Melody-in-the-Air
For My OCs and original creations! Featuring Sazhi and Doona!

How do they look? XD
I'm also toying with the idea of making buttons to sell for anime cons that will look similar to these...let me know your opinions!

Also, any tips on making one's page all spruced up would be lovely~! Thank you!

I'll keep making art for you guys...just a little update for those of you keeping up with my work! :)

I GOT A TABLET! Some of you already know this but I can't wait and I want to show you a couple of the things I've been working's a preview if you will ;)

Mikuwhoo by Melody-in-the-Air

Do you recognize her? XD

I'm slowly but surely getting the hang of my table and of my biggest dreams is to sell at an anime convention one day and armed with a tablet pen as my sword and the tablet itself as my shield, I'll charge into the battlefield that is artists alley!.....actually everyone I've ever met there is really like a awesome field XD

Princess-wilder by Melody-in-the-Air

Hello guys! I recently purchased a tablet (WHOOPEEE~!!!!) and will be doing some digital art from now on! This doesn't mean you'll stop seeing my traditional stuff but I'm very excited to announce that I'll be sailing into the waters of digital art as of now! Here's a tiny sample of something I've been working on so far....hopefully it turns out ok and that my first attempt at tablet drawing isn't horrible!

Hello my lovely peeps~

I have a new way for you guys to follow me, on facebook! WOWSERS!

So if you are so inclined to keep up to date with my life and my art, feel free to like me at…

The group is called Painting a Melody in the Air, melody in the air was already taken by another rogue octopus....hmmm XD

So yes, thanks for sparing some time to read this little blurb~

Hopefully, I'll see you on my facebook page soon XD

HOOLABALLOOOOOO!!!!! Look at that...300 my eyes this is quite the accomplishment. It means 300 individual people have seen my art and 300 people have decided to show their support for it as well. To each one of you I want to say thank you, you really do have a hand in what I do and I wouldn't strive to get better as strongly without you guys!

I'll keep getting better and I'll try different mediums as well. Maybe I'll save up for a tablet and venture into the unknown waters of the digital canvas...or try doing oil painting work...either way I'll keep making art for everyone to enjoy.

Again thank you so much. Each of you mean a lot to me and it makes me smile when I see you comment, fav, or even look at my work! Keep being awesome and you'll see a milestone post again when I get to 400 ;)

Stick around, you may like what you see!

1: List 10 Things About Yourself That Your Watchers Might Not Know.
2: Tag 10 Other Users To Do It!

1) I am deathly afraid of wasps, hornets, bees...and other flying yellow and black monstrosities XD
2) I can play the piano and have played it for 11 years or so now XD. I especially love game, anime, and movie music and play those a lot more than the classics
3) The weather can affect my mood greatly. I feel awesome on sunny days and a little low on cloudy ones
4) I dislike the sound of rain on the roof, I find it loud and distracting but I do love the sound of passing lulls me to sleep!
5) I'm currently in university studying to become a nurse. Hopefully it works out!
6) I tan very easily but I also become pale quickly as well...I'm usually tan year round though!
7) I'm addicted to da fat life least I run a couple times a week to work it off XD
8) Suikoden is my favorite game series EVER.....EVEEERRRRRRRR!!!!!
9) I often draw while listening to medical documentaries or watching beauty videos on youtube....I know...two very different kinds of videos XD
10) I once redrew a picture of Sesshomaru from Inuyasha 12 times to get it right. Diligence, practice, and not giving up will get you very far!

Thanks for reading this! Your turn!!! I tag everyone and anybody who wants to do this...too lazy to actually tag 10 people XD

I'm sure other artists on DA have done this before but I want to try drawing 100 pieces of art based on 100 different songs but the flexibility of this challenge is that you can choose whatever song you wish! I'm not done the 100 Theme Challenge yet but I find that many times it's the music I listen to when drawing that inspires me more than a simple word! I'll post a link to the piece and the song that inspired it as I go along so check back often to see what crazy things I've come up with!

1) Dark Paradise by Lana Del Rey: Nadia - Lying in the Ocean Singing Your Song
2) Core Pride by UVERworld - Fiore
3) Rain by Priscilla Ahn - The Many Expressions of Arya
4) Start from The Second Reproduction OST - Lezette's Warm Smile
5) Universal Bunny by May'n - Sheryl Nome
6) Ice & Snow by Shunichi Miyamoto - Nadia in the Snow
7) The Venerable Forest from Star Ocean: The Second Story - Floating Arya
8) A Thousand Years by Christina Perri - Eragon and Arya: Loving Gaze
9) Mirror Mirror by Jeff Williams and sung by Casey Lee Williams - Weiss Schnee
10) Undermine from The Witch's House - Murai
11) Let it Go from Frozen - Let it Go!

So Mr. Paolini has officially said...( official as Twitter gets XD) that there will indeed be a book 5 for Eragon!

BLARGH!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited~! I don't care it it's a prequel or sequel or a continuation of the current story but I am so gosh darn excited right now I want to run around in my underwear on top of mount Everest and shout my undying love for this author!

I'm sure some of you are happy to hear this too considering some of my watchers are major Inheritance fans as well!

We will all wait together my friends! Anticipating the day the book hits bookshelves! We'll probably have to fight each other to get a copy XD

Until then, I thought I'd share the news with you!

200 Watchers! I'm HONORED

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 15, 2013, 11:09 AM

Thanks for sticking with me you guys! I love to draw and getting such good reception on my art makes me so happy!

I'm extremely grateful to all of you for keeping me busy on DA! I've had this account for 4 years now and I wouldn't have posted as often as I do without your constant support! I'm glad I've taken up art again. I'm so happy that I was able to get better because of all of you!

So thank you everyone. Your comments, your messages, even your faves tell me to keep going, to keep getting better at what I do.

Next goal: 300 watchers! GO!

Normally I dislike it when people ask me to check out their stuff...I mean checking out their gallery on DA or even asking me to favorite one of their works because they had favorited one of mine. I guess that's an irrational pet peeve though since you are the only person who can promote your own work in these situations so I am going to promote my blog using this logic XP

Check it out if you like, you are by no means obligated to :)
