Hi everyone! Rather than sending me notes or comment on the frontpage, let's share your B-day wishes on this journal. ;)

Let us know what you'd like to see more from me in the coming future! Love ya all, your support and well wishes are much appreciated as always.

Oh and big thank to :iconcic-studios: for this fantastic early birthday present! 

Happy Birthday Elson! by CIC-Studios

This really hit the spot for on the fact that:

A) The song immediate took me by surprise. This BGM means a lot to me in so many ways. = ) And it's a remixed version too which is quite refreshing to listen to!

B) It's got Silver and Blaze! My favorite coupling! X3

C) It's got Sonic too - of course! Without him I wouldn't have become who I am today (not forgetting to thank my parents and family as well for my upbringing and welfare! XD) and I wouldn't have known about you guys. ;)

And that's it for now! It's time to catch a ride with Jason and drive down to LA to meet up with the others! Have an awesome weekend everyone and I shall keep you all posted! 8-)

:star: Fateful Encounter

The Wombat King: "Just who the hell are you, and what brings you to this holy place...?"

Ruby: "You must be the one...! I... I'm speechless, it's like what my ancestors have predicted."

The Wombat King: "...."

Ruby: "My name is Ruby, and I'm on a pilgrimage to seek for my true calling. Along the way I will meet a wombat along the way to join me in my quest, for better or worse."

The Wombat King: "...."

Ruby: "Will you... Join me on my quest?"

The Wombat Returns by darkspeeds

Currently packing up my bags for tomorrow, Jason and I will be driving for 7 hours and hit Anaheim, LA.

Can't wait to hang out with the gang from last year, we'll be sure to stay up real late at the hotel like usual - drawing, playing games, chillin' and watching some classics like Monty Python, Pulp Fiction, and also - the fun/crazy/weird titles like Kill Bill, FLCL and many more.

Also can't wait to check out what Wondercon has to offer, spend quality time with friends at Disneyland California and a birthday treat at Outback Steakhouse. I'll let you know what the restaurant's like - will they be surprised to find a real Aussie there? *SHOT*

Take care everyone and enjoy your weekend!

:star: Embarrassed! X_X' (Happy B-Day and Wondercon!)

Dear god that initial drawing was embarrassing... Even if it was intended to be drawn like crap! X_x;... lol

So I decided to sketch myself again and see how far I came from after studying at the Academy of Art - still got some distortion happening but the mirror doesn't lie! XXD

(You can't beat drawing in graphite, used a 2B mechanical pencil for this compared to the tablet monitor on my previous drawing...)

:star: My Birthday Next Week and Wondercon!

I'll be turning 29 next week!!
 (ie. 18th April 2014)

People tell me I still look young... XXD Whether it be some random stranger I meet, my classmates, my friends. My family will tell me otherwise (in the sense that I need to start my own family soon!) :D Goodness... I'm only one year away from reaching 30. Woot! Time to embrace another year of awesomeness by acquiring new experiences and new wisdom!

Anyways next week is also the time when I'll be going down South to Los Angeles with my friends :iconchemb0t: :iconcytochrom: :iconairlight: :iconequalsn: to attend WONDERCON (Anahiem). It'll be my first time going to that particular convention, and it's only been a year since I've began my journey to the United States and caught up with the same gang for Comic Con 2013 (from there I also caught up with :iconevanstanley: :iconcirotin:. We had some great times together.

Isn't that amazing how one year has passed just like that? Anyways I digress.

If anyone else is attending the convention feel free to come say hi should our paths cross. Also I can't wait to check out Disneyland, this time with friends that I know of (instead of travelling companions in LA Disneyland 2007 and with my brother and his friends at Tokyo DisneySea in 2009). Last but not least I'm looking forward to dining into the OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE with friends for my birthday - it's time they got a taste of some commercial Aussie fair... XP XD

Also... I'm too lazy to draw or color anything fancy... Let's go mock my MAD DRAWIN' SKILZ!!!

How's your Sonic Boom comic been going? The first couple of pages are great! Can't wait to see more but I guess you're busy with a lot of stuff. :)
