Hello there. I like to go by Akemi, but feel free to choose any nickname form of that name, tbh. (Lots of people call me Ake, and I think it's adorable.) I am a fairly new comic artist, and am learning many things about it every day!

This is the new comic icon for Tapas, and I really liked it. So here is the full version. :D

If you wish to read this on Tapas here's the link! (I'm much more active over there)

@IronDog: It's an effect through Clip Sudio Paint. Though the effect is designed with black and white comics in mind, so it does take a bit of work to adjust. (I'd be so dead without this rain tool)Haha. Thanks!

The boy be trippin'.

...and that's the end of chapter 2! Feels like that took forever and a half for some reason. Probably since I had to draw characters that I didn't know super well design wise, but hey, what can you do?

In other news, I'll be taking a bit of a break in between this chapter and the next (about a month at the most, probably less). I'll be posting WIPS of my chapter progress on Patreon for 1 dollar a month.

Otherwise, I'll try and keep you informed of my progress in the news section.

This was actually drawn like over a month ago, but I kept not saving the video, since it takes so much computer power, and I need my computer to draw. haha. Oh well.

Sorry it's a few hours late. I had forgotten to queue it this week, and got home too late last night to put it up.

Oh no. Sooch can't get a break. :c
@IronDog: Thanks!! That actually means a lot to me, it's what I'm most uncomfortable doing. <3
I DID A SPEED PAINT FOR YOU GUYS. ENJOY!!!

Also, trivia, one of the songs in the speed paint is one of Krisle's favorite songs. Can you guys guess which one?? :D

...

I was going to put this in the extras comic, but this is kinda sorta part of the Q and A since I had a few people ask me for my coloring and drawing technique. This was easier to do than try and explain it. xD
1,750 subs and counting!!!?

Thank you guys SO MUCH!!! I honestly never would have expected so many fans in such a relatively short time. I say that every time, but I swear, I mean it. I'm very grateful for you guys, and I get super excited whenever I see that you guys enjoy my work!

It's been a bit of a bumpy road so far, with constant art and color changes (at least I personally notice), but I'm glad you guys stick with me!!

This drawing was a joy from start to finish, and I am literally craving drawing comic scenes of them at the skate park.

Thanks again you guys!! You're honestly the best. <3

I'M NOT DEAD. OMG. Sorry for the unexpected hiatus, my life got nuts for a minute there.

I had a ton of fun at the convention I went to, and got lots of fun stuff, and did cosplay and things. It was super fun, then after that, stuff just wouldn't stop happening. xD

I'm back now, though!!! Hopefully, I'll be back on track in the next 2 weeks. (Got a lot of catching up to do.)

I wish I had a longer update to make up for it, but alas, I had barely any time to draw till recently. </3

@Animerules!: Your comments always make my day! I know it's been a second since I've updated, but I promise I'm working on it! <3

Krisle is my favorite character, and a cute moment is coming up pretty soon. :)
