The Learning Pad (14 hours) – COMPLETE

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

Thanks to my allergy medication, I’m currently on a $2 per day “Breathing-the-Air Tax”, but despite the whole being dependent on medicine for a normal life thing, I’m actually feeling pretty good – neither spacey nor congested in the face of a high pollen count and looking forward to the convention.

So anyway, the world needs some more Cirno x Suwako:

It’s based on The Learning Pad in Port Washington, Wisconsin.

Sixten @ Sakura-Con 2013, March 29-31

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

From March 29-31, I will be representing my publisher, DoujinPress, at Sakura-Con. I will be staffing a table and selling Fairy Ring, Autumn Children, and books by the other DoujinPress authors.

Also in attendance will be DoujinPress owner and yuri queen Kira, who is driving up from California, and fellow DoujinPress author Melanie Herring.

Spring is here and my allergies are worse than they’ve ever been. I’m spaced out from all the medicine I’m taking, although that’s way better than not being able to breathe through the nose. I also have a sinus headache that will not go away and keeps me from drawing or playing video games. In my experience I get used to the medicine after a while and the headaches stop, but right now all I want to do is sleep. I’m taking a break from everything except my job for the next week or so.

Things should be better by the time the convention rolls around. If you’re attending, I hope to see you there.

Edit: (March 23) Pollen counts are high but my medicine has proved equal to the task, and I’m neither congested not spacey. Let’s do this!

Use Your Illusion – Page 02

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

Did you know that part of the reason why I vastly prefer Youmu x Reisen over such other pairings as Youmu x Yuyuko or Tewi x Reisen is because their character designs are aesthetically similar to Haruka and Sora from Yosuga no Sora (which I said has influenced me in the past)?

And remember what Sora’s accessory is: a stuffed rabbit.

Of course.

As for Use Your Illusion, the templates being used by DoujinPress are now double the resolution (and thus 4x the surface area) of the ones I used for Autumn Children. Right now it’s taking longer to draw each page, but I expect the momentum to build.
