Haha. Lol. I ... don't know how to do this. ^_^

We're testing out this online-merchant thing that isn't just limited to badges and bookmarks anymore. So.... um...

Anyone interested in buying our doujin?Collapse )

*hums* ... Maybe next time, we'll even out the orders from online and local if we do pre-orders, so that everyone has a chance to get the freebies. ^_^

[STAPLE] Toycon meet-up
Okay. Since the meet-ups for STAPLE during Mangaholix was one that can be stamped with EPIC FAIL, we shall try it again. This time, during Toycon '08.

Since nobody saw Kuroko-chan with me during Mangaholix last time, and I mean, we were just stationed in one of the free booths in the indie section, I wanted to try something different, just so people will notice me and actually flock over.

Wearing nametags for me will help, but you'll prolly not notice me at all, even if I did wear a costume (in a con where there's cosplay? Yeah right) you guys will never see me coz I'm pretty... generic-looking.

So. If I'm going to humiliate myself by wearing a ridiculous nametag, I might as well make it really ridiculous and give everyone a reason to laugh. And no, I will not stay in one place. It's been a long time since I've been in a con as a mere con goer and not a marshall/indie participant. Expect that I will drag you everywhere.

If you guys STILL don't see me walking around wearing this, well then. Sad for you.Collapse )

Toycon Information:
Jun 14-15, 2008 @ SM MegaMall Megatrade Halls 1-3

When will I be there?
Jun 14, from around 1PM onwards.
Jun 15, from around 3PM onwards (or earlier, if I can)

Current Mood: tired

Staple* - FF7/FF13/KH/WEWY Doujinshi Project

Thanks, 'Ru, for the header image! XD

STAPLE* is a doujinshi anthology for the fandoms Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy XIII, Kingdom Hearts and It's a Wonderful World/The World Ends With You. I'm searching for Filipino artists to contribute to further promote and inspire fellow Pinoys to draw manga and doujinshi. STAPLE* will be sold in LIGHTS OUT CON 2008.

*The title is debatable and can be changed. The reasoning for the title now is because of Nomura-sama's staple designs for Cloud/Sora/Roxas/Ven/Neku, Rinoa/Tifa/Kairi/Namine/Shiki/Rhyme, Sephiroth/Riku/Ansem/Xemnas/Xehanort/Joshua and KH!Seifer/Beat.

I'm basing these guidelines loosely around carneaglariel and futomimii's own doujinshi anthologies. ^_^;; I hope they don't mind me using them.

*FANART - These can be 4-komas, one-page doujinshis, short manga and illustrations. You can submit as many as you want for any of these.

*FANFICTION - No limits here other than please don't send us an epic. Otherwise, there are no other requirements. However, if you're able to partner up with an artist to draw insert illustrations for it, that would be really, really great.

*MANIFESTO - Not entirely required, but encouraged. Either in art form or written, a page's worth stating/showing your most favorite FF7/FFXIII/KH/WEWY NON-MAINSTREAM guilty-pleasure pairing and justify why you like it.

*You can submit any of the above, with no restrictions to any of them. If you want, you can submit a mixed bag of all.

*To be an In-house Artist, you must submit 6 submissions or more. (eg. 2 illustrations, 1 4-koma... generally 6 pages of stuff and more. Likewise if you draw a manga that's more than 6 pages, it counts too!)
Those who submit less than that will be considered as Guest Artists.

*ALL submissions must be scanned in at 300dpi, A5 size (148 x 210 mm). You can of course, send me a bigger resolution file if you trust me to resize your pic.

*All submissions must be in black and white, screentoned or you can even use grey tones. Pencil works are fine too.

*NO explicit language and no R-17, R-18, or R hentai, yaoi or yuri. Shounen-ai, shoujo-ai and het are allowed. PG only, unless someone bribes me with... apple pie. Or chicken nuggets. No net food or scans. That's just cruel.

*Comics read from right to left, because it's easier to do.

*Artists are required to send in a freetalk page as well. Basically, the artists can rant and draw whatever message they want.

*Please send all submissions to my email: croixsouillees @ yahoo.com with the subject "I think (Genesis/Marluxia/Joshua) is (insert word choice here)."

*If you have any questions, please feel free to comment on this post.


*As this is a non-profit project, in-house artists will get a free copy while guest artists will get the copy at half price, as this is only fair to the in-house artists. We, the artists, will not gain profit through this.

*Those who wish to buy it in the Philippines, you can do so in Komikon or if there's enough left over, we can have meet-ups so long as you're in MM area and if you're willing to feed the poor, poor soul who'll deliver it to you. Or if you'd like, you can get it through mail.

*As for those who live outside of Philippines, they will have to pay for the shipping fee.

Please keep checking on this post for updates and changes in guidelines, if any. ^_^

Yes, July. I'm really sorry for cutting the time so much. It's been suggested that we print it for selling for LO/Yaoicon this year and I agree. However, seeing as LO is in September, I'd need time to get it edited and then printed.

With the number of contributors, I may or may not be forced to either split the anthology into two books depending on the fandom or I may have to enforce quality control. I'm really sorry.

The language used for the anthology will be English, and Filipinos abroad (yes, you may be half, one-fourths, even one-eighth Filipino) are allowed to join. However, if you become an in-house artist, your book will be free but you may end up having to pay for shipping. ^^;;;

I'm really, really sorry for the inconvenience.


I was thinking of a meet-up, sometime. ^_^ I hope nobody minds it? There's an event at the end of this month called Mangaholix. If we can, maybe we can meet up, have lunch somewhere and stuff. If anyone wants my number, just poke me on AIM (croixsouillees) or MSN (croix_souillees@hotmail.com). I'll give you my CP#s then. ^___^

If any one of you wants to meet me, I'll be the girl holding the bigger of these two. Good luck finding me? Lol.

... *swtswt* Sorry, last minute but... my parents told me I can't go... T_T

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Posting something! Just so the artist isn't thought to be dead :D
Painter practice, chose em as subject. I'm a huge fan of openCanvas so I think me and Painter here will get along, soon enough. Rhan's hair isn't really tied that way but now I did somehow I like him like that better now. lol o_o;
As far as the manga itself is concerned, working on it albeit very slowly. *dodges glares from Nami* :D;;;

Character Bio: BGaE-Strade

- Rhan –
Age: 24 (January 17, Capricorn)
Sex: Male
Hair/Eyes: Light brown/maroon
Description: Main character. A very irritable man and very hard to get along with. He is an Angel General, but only because his master, General Sariel carelessly disappeared one day. He honestly believes that it is not his duty to ‘clean up’ after his master’s messes and hates humans.

Seiyuu: Ishikawa Hideo

- Liese –
Age: 17 (April 18, Aries)
Sex: Male
Hair/Eyes: Magenta/Red (gray contacts)
Description: A silly human who seems to be very inexperienced in the world. He is very gullible and lacks ‘common sense’. He is a Barret Azarel’s fan and loves his books, ‘La Partita’. He follows his brother’s words almost to the letter – most of the time.
Seiyuu: Kawakami Tomoko

- Raku –
Age: 24 (June 13, Gemini)
Sex: Male
Hair/Eyes: Pink/Red
Description: A doting older brother, and a renowned Demon General. He’s strict and harsh, and easily terrorizes other people with a mere glance, but is absolutely silly when it comes to people he likes. He shows his love and appreciation for the people he likes with bunnies.
Seiyuu: Tomokazu Seki

- Sariel -
Nickname: “Barret Azarel”
Age: 35

Story Information: BGaE-Strade
There are always stories you always hear about, roll your eyes at but it still touches your heart but you don't want to admit it.

It always has scenes that are also too romantic to stomach but you still do.

You know, like when girl softly confesses to dude, feels the feeling of that teetering over an edge where she has the dread that dude will reject her, then he says that he's loved her for so long?

Those kinds of scenes are heartwarming, cliched, but always part of our hearts, found in little glossy romance novels.


This isn't one of them.Collapse )

Forsaken Ground

Forsaken Ground

A haphazard group started by two girls who wanted to make an artbook together. During the Ozine'Fest last April 1st 2007, they successfully sold all copies.

They were approached by a man who wanted them to make an online comic, and, since it was an intriguing thought and there were a lot who were asking for more products from them, they decided to make an Art Circle, giving birth to Merami, which was then changed to Forsaken Ground.

Current Projects:

Beyond Good and Evil series:
- BGaE Artbook (first sold Ozine Fest 07)
- Strade
- La Partita

The Art Circle

Meru-chan l devart
Artist, Muse and resident lazy-ass.

Inami  l devart - Writer, Art Assistant and resident Obsessive Compulsive

Jeneko  l devart - Graphics and Layout Designer, Artist and Art Assistant.

- Editor and Consultant
