— Anonymous: would it be a bother if i ask for your birthday? it should be nijiaka day #2 lol

this is the most beautiful thing that everyone has ever said to me…I feel a great sense of accomplishment…my goal in life is to add nijiaka days into the calendar until everyday becomes nijiaka day

my birthday is on July 1 ! ^o^

Which is in exactly 70 days, and 9 days before niji senpai’s birthday and 15 days before Nijimura day (nanairo/rainbow day) ٩( ᐛ )و

— Anonymous: Hair tutorial plz (+ coloring) since im still a beginner

Lately, I’ve been asked to make colouring tutorials many times.

I will not make one for a variety of reasons. And because you are a beginner, I will say this. This is just my personal opinion but I’ve always thought that one should avoid using tutorials to start-up. The reason is this: Tutorials show you one way of doing a thing. When you learn how to do something through it, you’ll be more enclined to judge what you do by “I’m doing this right” or “I’m doing this wrong”, based on comparison with the person who did the tutorial, Though, as I said it’s just my opinion so you’re still free to look them up if you want it’s totally alright! I just won’t make one.

Though I can tell you about some things that are basic when I colour something. Since I can only draw people this is what I’m going to talk about. Do not though that I never use tutorials or I never read up on art stuff so this is completely pulled out of my own brain and so it might be wrong but I hope it makes sense!!

Colouring

I visualize the character as a clay sculpture like so.

I don’t actually colour it in grey but it was just to show you more comprehensively. I’m sure you’ve seen the circle thing around before, it shows lights in a very geometric way. 

I apply this theory roughly to the character, which allows me to see volumes like in the last drawing!

— Anonymous: what tools do you use for coloring?

Let’s demonstrate with uchi no model

(i use Paint Tool Sai)

Pen is self-explanatory, though it can be used to sharpen colours.

Water is good for blending or applying foundation on the skin.

Marker is nice for painting, but sometimes I just do everything with marker. I think it’s the most versatile tool!

— Anonymous: Do you have any OT3?? (:

yeah…Nijihaiaka is the best i ship Nijiaka Nijihai and Haiaka simultaneously I would say that the best is the one with genderbend Nijimura but!!! cute senpai kouhai relationship…..

Then there’s the obvious Nijiakaaka 

image

But maybe this was referring to my Nijiakamayu post? Idk I just drew it as a joke but it looks like it’s an actual pairing

But I have to say my ultimate OTx is EveryoneAka

yes!! everyone asks him who he is with and maybe someone calls their beautiful niece/granddaughter over to meet him and akashikyun is just like ‘eXCUSE us, ladies’ and drags him away

omggg possessive boyfriend akashi is literally the best

When they’re about to show him their daughters:

Aka “Shuuzou didn’t you say you had to return this important call? I’ll show you to a quieter place you shouldn’t make them wait”
Niji “What call-“
Aka “(STEPS ON HIS FOOT)”

YES YES YES haute couture nijiaka im screaming with lovely cuffs and fancy scarves and expensive watches and fast cars and eventual arm candy to throw off people from their scent

AKASHI IN A LIMO AND NIJIMURA DRIVING HIS SHINING CONVERTIBLE im getting week in the knees

You know what’s adorable…Nijimura who looks very fancy on the outside but he’s so nervous to be at a high-end party while Akashi is a natural. The old ladies gasp when they see him do clumsy stuff and people think he’s edgy class because he’s actually just a normal guy in fancy clothes.
