Koi-mono

(Also known as the Koi-sode) Well, another semester of art college comes to a close. This outfit is based on my final project, a piece of wearable art- designed, sewn, and painted by myself. For the holiday of Japanese Children's Day, I have combined a fish-shaped kimono/kosode with the pattern of "Koinobori", Carp-streamer-windsocks. Also, the appearence of my sorta-fan-character has changed to reflect the impact of my training. Can you spot all references to Kirby's past and present, among others? Drawn in pencil, inked in brush-marker, and colored in felt tips.
(Well now that it's finally been posted, I can continue my comments)
~Now is that Gratitude, or is it really love? Some kind of reality, that fits just like a glove. Now is that Gratitude, for everything I've done? Or is it something else, that's got me on the run.~
What is this!? No longer can I instantly upload? No more #5 Gold Kirbies on my ratings? Who am I? I am not afraid to state, that I'm not particularly fond of the current state of KRR. Though I hate to admit it, I feel like the site is becoming the same stale shell of itself it was before a certain “rebirth” of humor and creativity, which has since passed, sad to say. This “renaissance” was what motivated me to get involved with the site in the first place, instead of just lurking as I'd done for years before, and it pains me to see all the witty efforts (including some of my own) having been buried by the dust of passive conformity. As I have displayed in art college, it is not enough to settle for mediocrity, you must not compromise your skilled potential for the easier path. Constantly push yourself farther, raise the bar for standards, and lead others through good example, and no doubt prosperity will flourish. The new KRR needs to take a clue from the past few years and give the viewers something they would really enjoy, in a way that incorporates the individual, and encourages others to join in, too. DO THIS, instead of activities which are ultimately just vainglorious attempts of self promotion by the few to many faceless titled-staff. Be steamed at me all you want, but first look at yourselves and see it you are really doing all you can for this great website. If so, you will really not have time to spare on me...
Yeah, I've had a bunch of art in the works for the site for a long while now. New sculptures, big drawings, picture scrolls, pic-fics, etc. Now that it's summer, I actually have the time to get some of that out here. However, I'm not sure if I really want to now. Simply put, I've lost the motivation. I still have my passion for Kirby, of course, but the site isn't exactly welcoming to me at this time. I guess I am partially to blame, having been out of the picture for so many months, but there is no excuse. Whatever happens, I wish all kirby fans the best of luck in the future.

wow, really creative! Laughing i like how everything on the fan-character's kimono resembles a fish (how'd you do that?!). i don't quite see the references, though.. maybe i'm not looking closely enough? and what exactly is he saying? (the japanese in the speechbubble)

Thankyou Fan, MetaKnight#1. The katakana says "Ganbare~!" whch means basically, "do your best". There are Epic Yarn references, as well as an obscure one from the Masterpiece movie. I may link to this with actual pics of the costume I made, if I ever get them on-line.

This is so amazing! All the colours look perfect and clean. I especialy love the pattern on Dedede's clohes, and the cute little dog. Smile

Hi Daimyo, its Kirby101ify. I'm giving you a request. In 7 days my birthday is coming up, and I want you to make me a picture. Please include a ton of Kirby, some of Soul eater, and a few of the Haruhi Suzumiya characters too. Also include some of Lucky Star too. The format is that I'm a pricess who is marrying Meta Knight. All of the other characters surround us, looking in awe. So thats the format. Do not do the japanese version of the dress. Thanks, Kirby101ify. P.S: find these on Youtube.

Hey, Daimyo. A long time ago that i don't see one of your epic pics. The art college had finish it cycle, or not? Do you thinK in have vacations? I see that this pic is soo colorful and cool. I like that design for the cloth of Dedede, his suit looks like if it was made with fish scales. The most amazing pattern of colors is in his jacket and his shirt (because the scales of it looks like as Zero eyes) under the jacket. I see that you add an amprey and an embaconda from Epic Yarn in the pole. Also, i like the little puppy that you add and who is the girl next to you? This is another epic masterpiece for your great collection of masterpieces. I hope see more of your art Daimyo. Byebye Daimyo, for the moment. Laughing Laughing Laughing

The style of drawing looks quite nice here! Very inspirational writing in the description. Laughing
Kirby101ify   [May 12, 2011 at 01:39 AM]
did you get my request? Have until Saturday.
Dedede-Daimyo   [May 12, 2011 at 01:42 AM]
Thanks, all, for your support Very Happy
Kirby101ify: No. Now send me one metric tonne of fanmails.
Sorry, but I'm not familiar with the majority of what you listed, and am not a fan of character-shipping. However, if you would like to make a request, why not send it through the KRR Mailbag~? I am not just providing this option to lend you false hope. Happy birthday, anyhow.

Sadly, I have to agree with you on rainbow resort being a shell of what it used to be. The place just isin't fun any more. Where's Kirazy? Where are all the front page pictures? Where's the competitions, the three times a week updates, and all the great artists? Your a great artist and I agree on not being sure on posting those new pics, maybe one or two in the mail bag? :3 But really, where is every one? Good luck and best of wishes! Laughing

Hey DDD-Daimyo, like I suggested before. Make a Deviantart account or a blogger. Its hard to tell when new work is being posted here considering what's going on with the front page. There is a TON of Kirby fans out there who haven't seen your work and they should. Expand out of here alright? Besides, id love to see you other work asides from the Kirby stuff. I am sure its fantastic. ;3
Dedede-Daimyo   [May 17, 2011 at 11:21 PM]
You know, JS, you are right. It seems everyone has been telling me to make a DA lately, so I'ma gonna do it! See you on the flipside, dudemeisters~!

As much as it pains me to say this, I agree with your rant about the current state of KRR. It's very sad, really. I am still welcoming the newer artists and trying to give helpful critique when I can, but I'm afraid things may not be quite like how they were in '08/'09. Partly the reason why I've been submitting considerably more fan art this year than last: I didn't have concerns last year. But you were right; us fans must NOT grow lazy! I try to spread the word on the site whenever I see Kirby fan artists elsewhere, but it's tough. -- Anyhow, I love the vibrant look on this pic, do you find designing fashion easy? It's never been my strong suit, but you make it look so simple! Razz And is it weird that the dog in the bottom-right corner reminds me of Tintin...? Laughing
