 It's Suho's 26th Birthday :D Well, it's been his birthday for several hours now, but it's officially his birthday in my time zone. Suho is (currently?) my favorite idol. Probably the one I've become the most fond of in my entire career of stanning. Obviously as an idol, he's not someone I know personally, but I can say that what he does show of himself, what he shares of himself... It makes me so happy that he chose to debut as an idol, even though he went through so many hardships and even though other paths certainly opened up to him. I can't say I love him -- not seriously, not with all of my heart, not person-to-person -- but I can say that I truly respect him from the bottom of my heart. For his earnest side, for his sense of responsibility and decency, for his hard-working nature, for the way he manages to make being an idol something he can enjoy. I wish nothing but the best for him, even if one day I no longer follow k-pop. 

I was really lucky actually. One of my friends gave me the opportunity to send him a fan letter. He won't ever see this art, but hopefully he gets to read my words and get even a hint of how much admiration I feel for him! 

Notes about the fanart: it's based off of his outfit during the second day of Exo's May 2016 Japanese fanmeets. He wore a flower crown and I was so charmed ;; Though I didn't bother with the backpack because it was already hard enough situating his arms haha. I also didn't bother much with shading because I was pressed for time /o\ The background is made with a brush of his face, haha, inspired by a Chat Noir art I saw a few months back... And I actually uploaded this on twitter first and realized I forgot to add a drop shadow so that he stood out more from the background, and also so the white flowers on the ends of the flower crown would stand out from the background. Oops. Not too many people would see this anyway haha, it's more for my satisfaction.

I am slowly catching up lol. So, in the summer of 2015, EM held the "Exo in Wonderland" event which was inspired by the Wonderland-esque imagery in Exo's recently released "Love Me Right". That MV was such a pretty eyeful, barring the weird football and locker scenes and the general lack of Suho, but I digress. Anyway. So someone decided to start the event up and I. Did not perform too well honestly u_u I started off as part of Team Suho (who was randomly assigned to Team Baekhyun-Lay-Suho a.k.a Team BLS a.k.a Team BALLS because we at EM have the maturity of children lol), but sadly, his faction was eliminated after Round 1 so I moved on to Team Xiumin (who was randomly assigned to Team D.O-Chanyeol-Xiumin a.k.a Team DCX a.k.a Team Dicks smh), who I have traditionally supported in previous events. It was a pity. I pumped out better stuff for Round 2 though, but it was all fic so I'll upload that in a bit. In the end, my teams did not do well, I am still :( about it, but it's been like a year or something since so what can you do lol


Title: White Rabbit Suho

Original Post: Here.
Notes: I managed to make this the first work submitted of the event, similar to how I tried to get in the first submissions for WCAU lol. It's basically just Suho as the White Rabbit from Disney's version of Alice in Wonderland.



Title: Portal into Wonderland

Original Post: Here.
Notes: I spent more time on this than I'm happy with, and it still wasn't particularly good. I really just wanted to play with optical illusions like the impossible triangle...which was kinda based off a discussion I had with an anon back before Exodus came out and Exo's new logo was revealed, about what the Exo logo would look like as a triangle lol. I chose colors that were typically associated with each member (Lay's fans use purple, Suho's water would stick him with blue, and Baekhyun's light would stick him with white) and the... strangest pics I could find of each one lol.

I also did a cupcake toop but I don't particularly care for it so I'm not bothering to list it lol

So. Preface. These are being posted about a year late, mainly because by the time I was getting around to posting them, Lu Han left Exo (and now, more recently, Tao) and I have... very strong feelings about betraydols and was quite reluctant to post anything relating to them, even previous work. But I want to post this year's summer event submissions and it wouldn't feel right skipping over all of the stuff I made for EM's 2014 World Cup competition. So here we go lol. The following notes are from last year.

Long story short, EM ran a second summer fanworks competition, this time modeled around the World Cup rather than the Hunger Games again. I didn't submit as much as last time I think, but I still totaled about 25 works? Pretty decent. It's a pity that Xiumin couldn't get to the finals, but he made it to 4th place! One place higher than the year before, and that was my endgoal anyway lol. Good job, me and the rest of the team. Who I don't know since I didn't unanon and I didn't have Kit helping me out this time.

Anyway. I had fun trying out new art techniques this time around -- I only did stuff on photoshop this time, compared to traditional media last year \o/ -- and I actually wrote stuff? For the first time in months. I'm amazed, though I don't feel so great about most of what I wrote. What is characterization, besides the bane of my existence lol. But at least I got to flesh out some ideas, including ones that had been tumbling in my head uselessly for a while.

Fics and free kicks will be posted separately, the fics so that I can edit or continue them as I want and the free kicks so they'll all be in one place lol. This will just be art and vocaroos. I'm probably gonna reupload the vocaroos on my soundcloud or my evernote since they eventually expire, as I found out from my HG!AU ones.... ugh life is such a struggle.


PRELIMS:

Title: Wavin' Flag song edit
Link: Soundcloud
Original Post: Here
Lyrics: 
give me fanart, drawn of dage
or just fanfic, that'll score higher
see anons fight over points now
might divide us, but it's worthwhile

in each meme part, we'll be postin'
once we start the competition
it's the world cup, take revenge now
maybe this time, xiumin will be crowned

stanning forever on
making fanworks til the round is done
less deadly than the hunger games
maybe this time xiumin will do better than fifth place

if it's for dage, i will be stronger
they'll name him champion
watch as i wave his--
if it's for dage, i will be stronger
they'll name him champion
watch as i wave his flag
so wave his flag
now wave his flag
and wave his flag

Notes:
 A cover of the 2010 Fifa World Cup song "Wavin' Flag" with the lyrics changed to suit WCAU. It's mainly because we had been given such a long time gap between finding out about the event and the actual start of it that I managed to get this done. It was fun making fun of the scoring system and the wank a bit lol. Also the fifth place bit refers to how Xiumin finished in fifth for HGAU... did better this time around lol


Title: Runaway song edit
Link: Soundcloud
Original Post: Here
Lyrics:
got one more day to post, can't believe we're halfway there
we're lagging far behind, won't give up just yet (just yet)
don't worry 'bout prelims, he can't get kicked out here
it's still a pity but
 
it's gonna end tonight oh oh~
day two of prelims, that's right oh oh~
oh look another toop, 3 2 1
watch those points rack upppppp
 
[deep sigh]
 
hey team let's run away
regroup, and focus on round one
our dage will have to wait
though i might be jumpin the gun
i still think that
 
hey team, let's run away
save our shit to be scored another day
it's a bitter pill to take
but no point in wasting those points anywayyyyy

Notes:
 A cover of SHINee's Runaway, again with lyrics changed to reflect the situation in WCAU. Prelims were mainly a period where the team with the highest number of points would get a walk -- exemption from the first round. No one was gonna be eliminated, so it was a huge waste of points if you didn't win it so this was a call to fellow Team Xiumin members to give up on prelims so we could start stocking up for Round 1 proper. Definitely had fun working on this in the car lol




ROUND 1: 

Title: Futsal Fanart

Original Post: Here
Notes: The first post of Round 1! I tried to make posting first my thing throughout the competition lol, lots of fun. Xiumin's appearance is based off of what he wore for one of the futsal competitions for ISAC, though I had to change him from Team A to Team B due to a last-minute team shuffle. It was my first time trying an outline other than black so I could have a warmer feel to him lol also, originally it was gonna just be a chibi but then I thought since i had the time, why not try a background? Also the grass hides his bad feet, haha. The flags were team flags made and chosen before the games even started lol, ironically, I was the one who designed the Team Suho flag. 


Title: Yowapetao

Original Post: Here
Notes: Originally I made this because Xiumin and Tao were gonna be on the same team, but then there was a reshuffle and they ended up on opposing teams. It was also because Boss loves/loved Tao and Yowapedal. No other other comments really since my feelings since have soured on him.


Title: Waving Flag and Fifa Trophy animation

Original Post: Here
Notes: THIS ONE WAS SO HARD. I had to use a series of screenshots from Hetalia as a reference for the flag waving and coloring the moving frames and actually animating it took so long I wanted to die lol. In the end I realy liked how it came out though! Xiumin's outfit is based off of what he had worn at an airport recently, but I changed the letter on his shirt to read B for Team B. Open in a new tab to see the pic full-sized lol. 


Title: Take a Bite at First Place Tonight (Animal Cover)
Link: Soundcloud
Original Post: Here
Lyrics: 
here we go again
yet another meme competition
won't take it easy 'cause
i'm afraid xiumin will fall behind
 
here we go again
fighting like animals to the end
teamed up with cannibals
and i'm afraid he won't get out alive
 
no i won't sleep tonight
 
oh oh, i want some more
fanart, what are chanons waiting forrr
take a bite for team b tonight
oh oh, i want some more
fanfics, what are lu-nons waiting forrrr
what are we all waiting forrrr
say goodbye to team a tonight
 
here we are again
camaraderie points kickin' in
no red cards yet,
though chanlu might still bite
dage, go run and hide
 
teams not taggin [c]
you're killin' me now
but i'll still share my points with you
to make sure team Biters gets through
 
oh oh, i want some more
fanmixes, what are lu-nons waiting forrr
take a bite for team b tonight
oh oh, i want some more
edits, what are chanons waiting forrrr
what are we all waiting forrrr
say goodbye to team c tonight
 
oh shit, look, meme's gone quiet
hush hush, look, no one's postin'
means it's time to make more shit
and i won't lose this chance
 
woah i won't sleep tonight
 
i won't sleep tonight
 
oh oh, i want some more
fanworks, team b please start posting more
take a bite at first place tonight
oh oh i want some more
fanworks, team b please start posting more
round ends in a few hours more
take a bite at first place tonight

Notes:
So I'm pretty sure that the soundcloud link is not the actual audio I originally uploaded to meme because some of the lyrics at the very end sounded different and I actually groan out of frustration at the end of this recording... sigh. I have no idea where the original went lol. But yeah, so a call-out to Teams Chanyeol and Lu Han to post more using a edited version of Neon Trees' "Animal". We made it through the round, so obviously successful. BTW, "camaraderie" is literally one of the worst words in the English language, how the fuck do you even pronounce it.




ROUND 2: 

Title: AA Batteries

Original Post: Here
Notes: This was mostly a pun about how I hoped that the new Team A would be "recharged" and ready for Round 2. Haha. And the joke is that these are AA batteries... I had to look up the shape just in case. The designs are based off of the team flags. In case the symbols weren't obvious enough, from left to right is Xiumin, Chanyeol, Chen, and Lay. 


Title: Baozi, Where Did You Go? (Where Did U Go cover) 
Link: Soundcloud
Original Post: Here
Lyrics: 
it's been so long since baozi's gone
i can't go on this way
his soft round cheeks, so dear to me
the coffee he made every day

i love him so, i miss him so,
and i'm left wondering where did he go
i'll search the land, won't give up and
won't come back empty-handed

tell me, chanyeol, have you seen my baozi? 
oh no you haven't?
that's okay, it's only just the start

oh tell me, where did you go?
not off to china all alone?
oh tell me, baozi, where did you hide?
don't go where i can't find you
tell me, baozi, where did you go?
i can't take this anymore
but i'll keep searching to the ends of the world
oh where did you go...

oh look there's lu, wonder if he knew
how far my baozi got
they're such close friends, wouldn't doubt it and
he's a hyung i can trust a lot

kyungsoo and yixing haven't seen him
so, lu ge, how about you?
if you insist on no,
i'll have to go and ask that brat sehun

i can't believe no one's seen my baozi
there's ten of us
there's no way no one knows where he's gone

oh tell me, where did you go?
not off to china all alone?
oh tell me, baozi, where did you hide?
don't go where i can't find you
tell me, baozi, where did you go?
i can't take this anymore
but i'll keep searching to the ends of the world

oh where did you go
where did you go
i never thought that you would leave me
feeling so lost and alone

oh where did you go
where did you go
come back to me, hyung please
and i'll never let you gooooooo

oh where did you go
where where did you go?
where did you go
where where did you go? yeah

oh tell me, where did you go?
not off to china all alone?
oh tell me, baozi, where did you hide?
don't go where i can't find you
tell me, baozi, where did you go?
i can't take this anymore
but i'll keep searching to the ends of the world

oh tell me, where did you go?
wait what was in lu's hand?
don't tell me, baozi, you couldn't hide
should've seen how he eyed you
tell me please i'm not too late
won't let his stomach be your fate
oh no, he's bitten, this is the end
oh, there you go

Notes: An attempted hattrick to accompany a fan art and a toop based off of the story "Have You Seen My Hat?", changed to "Have You Seen My Baozi?" The song is a cover of G.E.M. Tang's "Where Did U Go", which I was lucky enough to find an instrumental version of. It was surprisingly catchy and I still find myself singing this version of the song when the actual song pops up on my iPod lol. Sung from Chen's POV.

Notes: Song edit of Miss A's "Hush". Lyrics written by a laynon, and sung by me as an attempted hattrick with Kelley's Miss A Team edit. It's mostly a meta song, which were surprisingly popular in this particular event. I had to change one line as I was singing or else I wouldn't be able to breathe. I actually lost my voice after singing this because I'd been straining myself so much. It's a very face paced song actually. 


Title: Lu Haunting

Original Post: Here
Notes: Irony truly is the cruelest thing. I am going to be very honest, this work in particular was why I took so long to finally just start posting WCAU stuff, because it featured Lu Han and Tao so heavily and I am not a huge fan of either after what they did to Exo. 

Objectively? I'm actually really proud of this. Not the frames where I obviously gave up, but like I ended up trying a lot of new techniques like with hair and shading and facial expressions in addition to a lack of thick lineart, and the backgrounds made me really happy. Also liked the hanbok I drew. Anyway, so this was obviously a parody of the Danny Phantom opening. It's an idea I had since HGAU but never actually got around to because there wasn't as much time. You can see where I started giving up though because it was just taking so long and I had work early the next morning.




ROUND 3: 

Title: Gladiator Dage

Original Post: Here
Notes: My final fanart submission for WCAU :( I was actually really sad because I was running late for the hospital as I was finishing this so I didn't get to shade it since the round would end while I was working. Anyway, this was based off of Xiumin happening to wear really ugly sandals around this time, and anons joking that next comeback would be a gladiator concept based off of the sandals. I had to look up a lot of reference pics, but I found his body here pretty cute. I also really liked how cartoony his sword ended up looking. 




FINALS: 

Title: Best Luck Cover
Link: Soundcloud
Original Post: Here
Notes: Okay so long story short, Xiumin did not actually make it past semi-finals. I was working at the hospital when that news came out so I was very sad about the fact that I couldn't participate. At the last minute I did decide to help Team Chen in the finals, but... yeah. So I learned Chen's recently released "Best Luck" from the "It's Okay It's Love" OST as quickly as I could and submitted a straight cover for his team. Which in the end lost. :( I was really amazed at how quickly I picked it up though, so cheers.

avirjin: (Default)
 Merry Christmas! This is my fastest work to date! I think I found a method that makes this whole fanart thing more efficient lol Anyway, so I tackled Xiumin in his Candy get-up from the first f(exo) concert night and I think I got him down for the most part? I used a few other fanarts to get an idea of how to do his eyes/eyebrows/smile but everything was drawn on paper first and then colored on photoshop lol I did take advantage of c/p to make sure things were symmetrical... Haha. I still have a way to go with learning how to shade properly, but I'm happy for the most part. 

Anyway. I loved the performance! M's voices were really suited for it, I especially liked how high Chen's voice was without getting grating at all and Lay's voice was suited for the chorus. And everyone was really cute ;__; I hope I captured even a fraction of Xiumin's cuteness here lol
avirjin: (Default)
So, EM was having "12 days of oppars" or a "December of Exo" or whatever the heck it was, and Tao day was... earlier this week? Last week? I actually started on Tao day and it ended up taking a little over 24 hours to finish given that I had work and stuff. And even then I didn't properly finish. There's not much shading or highlighting, so it's pretty flat. The unfortunate thing is that I accidentally saved the flattened image, so I can't go between layers and stuff. Might as well leave it as it is lol 

Anyway, In the end I didn't make it in time. I doubt I would have posted anyway lol, I haven't done so in a long time. It was still a good chance to practice coloring in a new style, based off of this tutorial I found on tumblr where you color the base first and add lines/details later. It was an interesting practice. The art itself was based off of a series of pictures like this, when chinaline were flying back to China for an awards show. Congrats again to Exo for winning, I guess. So many wins this year. Whooo. All colors were lifted directly from Tao pics, although it was hard to find any that weren't filtered so his skin looked lighter u__u I think I got a good tone on him though, but I wish I could have made his hair look nicer. The pattern on the scarf was lifted from a generic knit pattern that I googled tbh, but everything else was me lol

In the end it was fun. I was happy enough with the outcome that I ended up printing it out and gluing it to a letter that I gave Boss when I met up with her a couple of days ago. Hopefully she liked it, even though my printer ruined the color u__u

 This is my reward for Kai winning the EM Hunger Games competition lol. It's too late to post anything on meme, and I've already shown too many people so they'd know it was me even if I did it, but I still had fun for the most part. :3 I gave up on the clothes though lol too hard. The pose is mainly from Kingdom Hearts, but nothing was traced n__n 

Anyway, belated congratulations, Team Panini!!! \o/

I'm finally done with the Round 1 post! orz omg, that was so tiring lol, but thankfully I made a lot less for Rounds 2 and 2.5 and I only wrote one thing for Round 3 so less work. Originally I was gonna try to do Wreck-It Ralph/Sugar Rush-esque racing characters for Round 3, and I even looked up concept art and fanart and started working on getting the style down and designing their go-karts, but in the end... I had work all week and couldn't get to it. What a disappointment. In the end, Xiumin ended up being eliminated, but I can't say I didn't try my best for him. :'3

This is going to be a compilation of all the fanart/vocaroos/edits/etc. that I made for EM's Hunger Games competitions! Or just the first round actually, since I submitted way too much then lol I actually kinda ashamed of how bad I am, but I was working to earn points for Xiumin and in the end that's what matters! lol

ETA: idk what' the deal is with the cuts, I think it's hard to fix them with the vocaroo posts so this compilation's a little sloppy? But this is the best I can do, I'm just really that bad with technology lol orz ughhhh
