IOGraphica - 6 hours (from 18-56 Nov 13th to 0-59 Nov 14th)

this is actually my mouse path … you know that little piece of hardware you use to drag and click around while you stare at the monitor… from around 7 pm to 1 am as of this writing. the lines are movements while the circles are for when the mouse is idle.

i’ve been resting a lot the past few days because i’ve had a bit of a weird reaction to some medication. kaya naman masaya ako, meron akong nagawa sa anim na oras na nakatunganga sa harap ng computer. hahaha. i think it’s kind of pretty…didn’t know doing something simple like dragging the mouse would produce something like this. try nyuuu, it would be pretty interesting to see what it’d look like after a few hours of …err, say plants versus zombies. hahaha! it’s a nice app from

yun lang.

4:10 AM 11/23/2011 … update. i kind of wanted to try doing this for a longer period of time.

IOGraphica - 5 hours (from 17-57 Nov 20th to 5-30 Nov 21th)

this was my mousepath last november 20 from around 6 pm to 6 am. i was a bit more occupied here and this kind of makes a busy day look pretty. hihihi.

yun lang ulit.

i forgot to post this. lol. it’s been a while since i made a doodle. yes, i can doodle… but it had to be on a starbucks cup. hehehe.


a happy cup! i started it at home with no theme in mind… unfortunately, bawal ang lapis at papel sa work so i didn’t have a lot of time to finish it, dinala ko nalang sa gig nila miming. which was actually a good decision because it was so much better working with music in the background. i used a 2h pencil and a pen 68 marker.

i was thinking of ninjas and shurikens… dunno why i added a sun, he seems to be eating the cloud thing i placed in there. oh well. i had a happy time finishing this at starbucks though, the guard was watching me and was looking interested or maybe he just wanted to know what i’ll do with all that eraser dust i accumulated on the table. hehehe. so eun, happy cup is happy!

yun lang.

whoever started that campaign against violence on children by posting cartoons from our childhood in facebook… well, nagtagumpay naman siya kahit papano. hehehe. so i decided to change my profile picture to miaka yuuki from fushigi yuugi since marami kaming mga alaala ng mga kaklase ko sa anime na yun. also, my drawing style is somewhat similar.

kaya lang, jen, one of my clasmates posted this on my wall…

ako daw si ami mizuno … nyahahaha! nung nasa elementary palang ako, sikat na sikat yung anime na sailor moon and my classmates had designated me as sailor mercury. ahm, hindi ako genius noh pero i was the resident bookworm. so eun, i changed my profile pic into ami mizuno. but anyhoo, this really made me want to draw again, sailor moon style. so, i’ve already done sailor mercury. i’m currently working on sailor moon for my other friend and old classmate, grace ; and of course, sailor mars for jen. here goes…

ami mizuno by melaikick

i can haz drawing skillz, yes? did you know that ami or sailor mercury is the soldier of love and exams? hehehe. i had a hard time with her sailor fuku so i didn’t line it entirely but i enjoyed drawing the rest of her face and hands. oha oha! mercury power make-up!

yun lang muna.

12/17/2010 … ehehehe. super delayed na to, busy melai is busy. o ito naman para kay grace…

usagi tsukino by melaikick

i can haz drawing skillz pa ren, yes? sino bang hindi nakakakilala kay sailormoon? i had a hard time lining her hair but i’m kind of happy with the results especially the eyes. wheeeee~! moon crystal power make-up!

yun lang muna ulit.

1/5/2011 … sa wakas bigas! i can haz drawing skillz… again, yes? took me a while to finish this. dami nigagawa sa work eeh. it’s rei hino, and it’s dedicated to jen.

rei hino by melaikick

rei is actually my favorite sailormoon character now… she’s smexy and i kind of like the fact that she has jet black hair that doesn’t seem to curl… same as mine. hihihi. i focused on her eyes though. mars crystal power make-up!

so eun, i finally finished this post. thanks so much for the inspiration, jen and grace.

yun lang.

watch the stars with joo … please view this using firefox. ie and safari destroy my codes. thank you.

because today i was really missing a person i had wanted to do stargazing with. i hope he’s faring well though… maybe, just maybe, someday we’d see each other again under a nice starry evening sky.

anyways, i’m finally getting the hang of adobe illustrator. the little vector monsters are supposedly on mars though, kaya may red yung gradient. i’m naming them monta and moshi moshi. hahaha!

yun lang.

♥ melai

a happy pattern … if it looks weird or won’t show, please use firefox. ie and safari tend to destroy my codes. thankshu! also, if you don’t understand the way some words are used, please check the terminology page. personal blog it iz.

i’ve been really looking forward to our …my small group of friends… dinner this coming sunday. di nyo alam kung gaano ko na sila kamiss… i really want to see their smiles. yung iba i haven’t seen, ever since i left si-bee-gi. isn’t it high time to kidnap joo na?

since the next ps lesson was creating a seamless pattern, i thought i’d make a n00bcakes one. gusto ko sana ng seryosong pattern, but plants versus zombies was running in the background… i guess it kind of influenced me. lol, wut? i added a sunflower, nyahahaha!

i wanted it to look really happy so i made the bg yellow. the bees represent two things, being happy and being busy, eh lagi silang bisi bisihan. pero kahit hindi ko sila nakikita, they’re always going to remain the people i treasure the most… kaya naman super excited ako. wheeee!

so eun, credits to MissFroo7h and ohgalore for the wonderful brushes ; the fonts i used are cat’s awesomely awesome, fh_scribble, and lithos.

yun lang.

i’m kind of wanted to do something in illustrator, so i was looking around for inspiration. hyeah, sort of. hahaha. so… and i hope i don’t get into trouble, lagi akong maaga sa work, since i live far… it varies, sometimes i arrive 30 minutes to an hour earlier. so, since maaga ako a few days back and there was nothing to do… i roamed around our building…

i was staring at this wall with lots of statistics, and there was opt us. ganyan ko nalang siya spell. mind, i don’t work for opt us, kekeke. but it caught my eye because at first i thought it was octopus. bwehehehe! di na naalis sa isip ko na para talagang octopus kaya dahil diyan, please meet optee, the octopus! (the picture will not pull up in ie or safari, kekeke?)


i learned how to make an octopus in a basics tutorial i’ve chanced a few months back, but i can’t find it anymore… kind maám or sir who made the tut, if you see this, i will credit you. just pm me. wheeee! it’s all cccleaner’s fault. hahaha. ginawa ko nalang siyang pink and purply para naman happy and gay! sa palagay ko, it’s kind of nice being an octopus… they can hug eight at a time. octopus power huuuuug!

yun lang.

forever we will stay like a pyramid

i thought i’d do something abstract for a change… i was thinking of doing something similar to venn diagrams but my iTunes suddenly blasted the song pyramid. so eun, pinaghalo ko… sort of. hahaha. created the vector and arranged the colors first in illustrator before processing in cs3. ahihi. tapos i added my favorite line from the song.

this reminds me of trigonometry though, one of the two branches of mathematics which i didn’t fear failing way back in high school. hahaha. i like shapes. yung isa, statistics. lol. anyhoo, i’m pretty happy with my colorful polygon with three corners, hahaha!

yun lang.
