Confessions of a Rufflebutt

The little place of lolita, steampunk, otome and otaku-ness of Yamneko, a self-proclaimed Ruffle-butt.

I just wanted a good hug tonight, but he went out drinking, and its sure been more than one beer :/

To be fair though, when he has gone out lately, even if coming home at like 3, he’s been really good about not being too drunk and then been better at not being a dick.

I just wish he stopped here first and have me the hug so I can stop feeling so sad

ugh i really hate that my opinions and likes can be swayed by other people./ EVEN PEOPLE I DONT FREAKING KNOW

We at Hiveworks are proud to announce our latest collaborative comic, premiering early 2015!

What is Umbra Rising?

Umbra Rising is a comic about an isolated city in the middle of a dangerous world filled with monsters. During the day, the city is perfectly safe. At night, however, the populace locks themselves inside as the city streets fill with monsters. The only ones who can combat these creatures are very special girls with the power to transform into…

*MAGICAL GIRLS.*

While the girls go out and fight to protect the city, the town treats them as heroes and idols. Shops are filled with Magical Girl celebrity merchandise, and many girls lead wealthy lives as practical pop stars. But the danger they face is real, and not everyone appreciates the way the town views its saviors.

But obviously, magical girl comics are all about the characters! While the town is filled with various teams of girls, here’s the gals we’ll be following:

image

Tessa is Alchemical Aether. She’s the leader of the Alchemical Elements team, and probably the most powerful. She draws directly from the ambient magical power of their world to pull off attacks made of pure energy. But does being the most powerful necessarily make her a good leader?

image

Sally is Alchemical Fire. Appropriate to her element, she’s extremely fickle and passionate. She seems to always be angry about something or other, but everyone knows it’s because she’s the most sensitive of the group.

image

Undine is Alchemical Water. She’s the most level headed of the group, and usually does her best to keep everyone working together smoothly. She hates rocking the boat, though, and often lacks the assertiveness to help as much as she wants.

image

Sylvia is Alchemical Air. She’s the oldest of the group, and tries to seem the most mature. She takes full advantage of her Idol status, and has quit school to work as a fashion model.

image

Gwen is Alchemical Earth. Gwen never says more than she has to, but she tends to leave an impression when she speaks. Though sometimes she seems to be in her own mental space entirely.

Of course, these are just a few of the comic’s characters! They’ll be joined by other magical girls, investigators, reporters, and all kinds of other people that both help them and put them at odds.

So who’s making this?

Lead Artist: Oskar, artist of Olympus Overdrive.

Head Writer: Mary Cagle, aka Cube Watermelon. Creator of Kiwi Blitz and Let’s Speak English

Editors: Jojo, head of Hiveworks, and Isabelle, co-creator of Namesake.

Produced and Published by Hiveworks.

I’ve finished reading the first trade of Saga, borrowed from a friend, and it’s kind of interesting, but it hasn’t really done a lot to grab me so far. I’ll probably read the second one, only because I have it until November anyways, but unless it picks up in some form and feel like I care about any of the characters, I won’t continue reading it.

I do want to get all my comics back together and re-read/catch up on Unwritten. I feel behind and don’t have them here with me, so I’m a little sad. Same with Blade of the Immortal. Really I just want to get them and set them up so I can see what the hell I have again.

For the life of me I can’t get these colored pencil drawings to be color corrected and print out right here at the house. The brown is too red, the purples are too dark and the green is passable, but honestly it’s wrong too. I really wanted to be able to just do print copies and not have to draw/color these by hand, so I could easily make my mother one too to give to her, since I think she would enjoy it, but nooooo.

Important regarding Ameba Fairy Kei and Lolita girls :

fairy-tips:

A few months back I was reading through an old 2chan thread (a japanese forum) about fairy kei, and I came across something that worried me.

The Japanese girls were worried about the fact that tumblr users were stealing their pictures, and didn’t want them stolen whether they were giving credit or not. They tried contacting a blog, but their English wasn’t very good so they failed to get the message across.

So I want to let you guys know, please ask permission before sharing Japanese fairy kei or lolita pictures on tumblr. Chances are they’ll say yes, but often they only upload these pictures for the Japanese fairy kei ameba community (a blogging platform) to see, so please don’t assume these are free for you to use !

How would you feel if someone just stole your picture and broadcast it to thousands of people you don’t know ?

This isn’t aimed at any particular blog, but I’d love it if you could signal boost this ! ><

Thank you !
