Sothis from Fire emblem three houses

30th anniversary for Fire Emblem with Sothis!

Yes it was the 20th of April; I’m late because of life, rush job, Animal Crossing and horrible, painful cramps :’)

I really like how this came out though! Call me a prude but I wasn’t pleased with her clothing design given the fact that she’s physically a young kid/teenager so I simplified it up! Glad I took my time with this rather than rush and do all nighters to get it done by the anniversary date 😀

Anyhoo she doesn’t have a huge emotional role in the game overall but she’s a pretty mysterious companion and plays a considerable part in the story!

Sketch & lineart phase!

LudoNarraCon 2020 shenanigans

Kind shout out tweet from them! I believe it’s still going right now.

Me feeling weird about it :’)

Recorded a scroll through of the dedicated festival web page for prosperity!

Someone thought I was getting accolades but not really, it’s just another day ;’) Because after it ends, it gets forgotten and the website will be gone.

Hey I’m super grateful, humbled and appreciate the honour to be able to illustrate for this! Having a few people coming out of the blue to say kind, encouraging words was a pleasant surprise too! Overall I’m glad I was able to do this illustration project! 😀

Personal update time!

I didn’t have much instagram story slides so text wall!!

  • Slowing down on AC instagram stories for real this time as I’m losing interest too :’) I feel like I don’t have the time or interest to post these regularly anymore. Maybe once a week or even less as time goes on? But I’m still playing and addicted to this game as it is, trading and visiting a few islands :’) Mutual friends, let me know if you have discord and don’t mind me visiting your island sometime!
  • Sad feeling – reminded that most people aren’t really your friends if you have to be connected on social media platforms to even stay in the loop :’)
    • at best they’re good acquaintances :0 I have to keep reminding myself this because I don’t really interact with much people as it is :’)
    • makes me grateful for my small handful of ongoing friends that still reach out every now and then (or months or years) through email/discord at a casual “hey I’m around” level. If I’m lucky it might get deeper than that sometimes but I don’t expect it.
  • I figured I’m not going to do early access art anymore, after a while since doing my first early access post
    • it didn’t feel worth the extra time and effort, especially when most existing patrons don’t really care for it and I get the impression that they just want to support me. And what’s important to me are my existing patrons, not what I imagine to be my potential patrons!
    • I’ll stick to patron polls or questions instead when I’m up for that
    • plus less work for me! 😀
  • I wasn’t feeling physically well last week thanks to hunching over from monthly bad cramps, grumpiness and lacking in sleep :’) Gah periods!! I managed to do the LudoNarraCon rush job during that time though!
  • Saw Love Never Dies with caution, knowing that the story is more like a dragged out fan-fiction with the Phantom and Christine as if they didn’t learn from their lessons from the first musical (ie don’t force love with manipulation, threats, murder and deceit and let people go) plus lots of needless drama and death. Interesting that it was filmed in Melbourne though :0 So here I type out things as I watch it:
    • gosh I was so bored throughout that I had to speed it up
    • costumes and stages were great though!
    • Why would Madam Giry help Phantom? 10 years just to get his love & wealth??? Isn’t that just manipulation too? And Raoul and Christine’s kid sings lots too
    • I don’t like this story at all
    • the story and songs feels so disjointed, peppered with the first musical’s melodic bits
    • Christine shock fainting was so fake and dramatic hahaha
    • long ago they were together for a night for Beneath the moonless sky??? Ahhhh what is this fan-fiction?!
    • none of the songs stuck with me :’)
    • he threatens to murder Christine’s son, of course :/ And then it’s his son after all because they both can create music gahhhhhh I’m groaning!!!!
    • fact that I’m writing all this while watching it, that’s how bored, annoyed and emotionally disconnected I am
    • Christine has perfect skin though ;D
    • what happened to Raoul’s character and why is he a gambler and alcoholic :<
    • why would Christine run back to do a one night stand straight away before her own wedding??? Who is this lady?
    • all of these characters are acting out of character from the last musical!! Why???
    • this fan fiction is HORRIBLE and apparently the original version of this flopped and was worse!! They had to rewrite it too
    • I can keep going but I didn’t enjoy this at all :’) I just want to erase it from my mind now. Anyhoo…
