Beginner’s Sketch

My drawing of Natsume Kyousuke from Little Busters. I’m still a beginner at shading and proportions, so it’s not too good. I’m always open to new advice!

I’ve Got A Signal…

I have been following Kpop since 2013 and although I’m not a very big fan, I have a few bands that suit my taste. Till date my favourite Korean band has to be f(x). They are not quite as big as groups like Girls’ Generation and 2ne1, but they’ve got potential. Their concept is really attractive as well, with dashes of girlish and boyish concepts together.

Their most prominent genre is electropop, a genre I’ve always found interesting. One of my favourite songs of theirs is ‘Signal’, the fifth number of their album ‘Pink Tape’. I love the disco and retro melody mashed together (I am a fan of disco music and I also love songs of the 70’s and 80’s). I have listened to it more than a hundred times, but it never gets old.

Other songs of f(x) that I recommend  you to listen to (if you ever feel curious to listen to them) are Shadow, another track of Pink Tape, Airplane (also of Pink Tape),  Ai, All Night, Milk and Dracula. These are my personal favourites and if you like the type of music f(x) has to offer, I’m sure you will enjoy these tracks as well. Others songs of different groups with similar vibes are Shift sung by SHINee, Odd Eye (SHINee), Somethin Kinda Crazy (Red Velvet) and Time Slip (also by Red Velvet).

I thoroughly recommend you to listen to all f(x) songs, especially from their album Red Light and Pink Tape.

Ritoru Basutāzu!

I remember seeing a very sad trailer of a new anime named ‘Little Busters’ on Animax a few years ago. It didn’t seem so interesting to me at that time, but my sister managed to make me watch it, and I’m sure glad I did! Even since I watched it for the first time in 2014, it’s become one of my top favourite anime.

It’s plot may seem like any other slice of life anime, but there’s so much more to it. Sci-fi and fantasy aren’t my type of anime, but this one was an exception. The plot was sad, mysterious and overall, beautiful. This anime was a tear-jerker and I recommend anyone to watch it, because after all, Ritoru Basutāzu saiko da! 😀

Pillars of Creation, Astronomy, Space  

I find this picture taken by NASA of the Pillars of Creation absolutely amazing. I want to photograph it myself too, someday.

Every time I think about the Pillars of Creation, I can’t help thinking it’s such a mysterious and wondrous thing out in space. The most amazing thing about it is that when you look at it, you’re actually looking back into time. You’re seeing the Pillars of Creation and how it looked like thousands of years ago. I’m seeing how it looked like thousands of years ago. That fact is so amazing that my stomach does a 360° flip whenever I think about it.

Space is big, beautiful, diverse and mysterious. Don’t you think so too?
