This is one of the similar journals I'm talking about.
Happy Birthday Mario and Mamiko-nee...Yep, these two consecutive days I'm celebrating the birthdays of two important people. The first one is Mario a.k.a MCMXC2 who celebrates his birthday at February 5th, which means today, the date when this journal is written while the second one is Mamiko-nee, my favorite voice actress who celebrates her birthday at February 6th. I personally due to my adoration, call her Nee-sama or big sister. She is way older than I am anyway and I really look up to her so I think there's nothing wrong with me calling her that way, I suppose...? :iconwhatsthatplz:
On the other Hand, I'm currently working for an artwork as a present for Mario. As usual, a pedal-pumping scene, but since I got kinda limited reference for that, I asked my friend Nathan a.k.a Savagenate77 for help, of course in getting me more references. The actual problem is not the scene of pedal-pumping itself, but I want it to make it more specific; a pedal-pumping scene of a Nissan Silvia S13 with Nissan 180SX front end a
The first one is Mario a.k.a MCMXC2 who celebrates his birthday at the day this journal is posted, February 5th.
So far I've drawn several artworks to celerate his birthday but I think this year I'd have to apologize for not being able to come up with anything due to my recent situation, especially now my mind is preoccupied with the new member of the family which is yet to get into this world.
This is what I draw for him 3 years ago
and this is what I did for him 2 years ago
Which in the end turned into this wallpaper
I'd like to think things went a bit differently this year. Mario commissioned me to draw a car with pedal pumping scene up to my preference. For some reason I'm in the mood for Euros so it turns out into this E90 wallpaper
for which I'm totally grateful to him. Maybe if it's not going too far, I'd also like to say that I'm looking forward for another chance of commission.
The second person who celebrates around this time of year is... *taadaa~* my favorite voice actress whom I look up to, Mamiko-nee...!
She celebrates her birthday on February 6th, exactly the day after Mario's. For those who don't know, I call her Mamiko-nee-sama since I really look up to her and I want to be like her, although I can't possibly follow her career path since I got no talent in voice acting.
...Unfortunately, I don't have any idea of what to do to for her. I still can't draw anime artwork that well so I think for now I'm gonna save the idea of drawing her characters crossover artwork for another chance.
I really can't get enough of saying this; Happy belated birthday for you, Mario-san and Mamiko-nee...
