Hi! My name is Aoi-Haruko-Ayame, but you can call me any of those names for short! I also have a nickname of Nami-san or Nami-chan as well as Rain on the forums rp on. I DON'T watch One Piece! In fact I really dislike the show altogether. I got that name when I was in the 8th grade, when people found out that I like Japanese stuff and the ocean. Long story short, it became a nickname that I still use today.

I'm a self-taught digital artist, learning from watching others and from my own experience. I haven't gone to school for art and my education for it ends with highschool art classes. I did take a class for photoshop at a community college, but that was only one semester. With that said, I learned everything else on my own and from other artists! I have been drawing since around 05, but didn't get into digital art till around 06-07 when I started joining rp forums. I've been hooked ever since and generally use it as a stress reliever as well as a simple hobby. I got into photo manipulations a bit later, after joining a wolf site which had element-bending wolves haha. I've done wolves and felines, but am still very much learning.

I use Photoshop CS2 for the majority of my work, but have experience with GIMP as well as other versions of PS. I use my Wacom Bamboo which I got as a gift back in 08, as well as my sketchbooks and pencils.

Wow, its been a while since I did one of these... Though its probably because I'm not very good at them *coughs*

So... I've changed up my profile a bit, updated my dA ID thing which has been the same since I opened this account lol! It sounded like a kid wrote it (which I was at the time) and blabbering on about stuff, so I rewrote! Hopefully it looks better, though not as good as some of those core members out there ;)

Also I'm going to scream with excitement because I got one of :iconmischievousraven: QuillDogs!!! I only found her art recently but I fell in love with her art as well as her species the moment I saw them. The design she made for me can be found here: Comm: Dreamcatcher Sky QuillDog Design by MischievousRaven
I've drawn like 6 sketches of this beauty already, but I sadly don't have the time to finish them... Maybe I will work on one sometime and make my own ref image of her lol!

I also have had Photoshop CS2 probably since November-ish so I'm back to doing my arty things! Anyways, that's really all I got to say for now so... *vanishes*

Shakti Chibi [Personal WIP] by Aoi-Haruko-Ayame
Shakti Chibi [Personal WIP]
Yes I suck at titles! Decided to upload this even though its not done XD
I wanted to try my luck at chibis and so this is the end result! Shakti was sacrificed to my experimentation of this style *pats her*

Used CS2 and Wacom Bamboo

Finally got the time to finish this little picture of my QuillDog! She will be part of the Atticine litter on Evermore, so I kept most of her accessories off for now. In time she will have them all, but its only those little tie-ins for now ;3

Her full name is Lanika Anora Whitewater!

Design and Character belong to me
Lanika Portrait WIP [Personal] by Aoi-Haruko-Ayame
Lanika Portrait WIP [Personal]
Just something I thought I would show you guys lol. It's my QuillDog without her accessories! I've named her Lanika.
This is a wip as the title says, and I do plan on coloring it as well as adding her accessories. I might add in some of her quills as well, but at the time I sketched this I didn't think they would show where I cut off at her shoulders *shrugs*
