Otonashikun's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist
United States
University student studying economics. While I was having an amazing studying abroad in Japan I became an amateur of mostly traditional art with a focus on My Little Pony. I also do some short stories. If you'd like, please take a look at my artwork :)

留学生として日本へ経済を勉強しに行ったMLPファン。もうアメリカに帰国したんだけど、素晴らしい経験で一年間のうちに日本が「second home」になってきた。主にJP-ENG翻訳、絵描、と小説。良ければ絵を観てください。これからよろしくお願いします!:D

Hello guys, it's certainly been a while since you've seen anything from me and for that I sincerely apologize.

I've been busy with college, translating, and other things. Admittedly, I've been playing a lot of a certain game in the last week or two when I just want to relax and I blame GTX. xD But in all seriousness, I can't blame him. I should be replacing that gaming time with "serious art time" or "serious writing time." 

That said, I have been doing some art, but they are usually pencil sketches on notebook paper unfortunately. In honor of Rainbow Dash's birthday, however, I'll be making a serious drawing of her soon! So for those who follow my art, look forward to that! 

As for writing, I've been writing a lot of things for school :( I am taking an upper division writing course this semester and a lot of my creative writing juices have been used up writing up a research paper. It's good practice for grad school and my academic writing in general, but it's not exactly fun aha Still, I have been making an effort to get another chapter out for Blood Moon Rising so be on the look out for that as well. 

I've also been active with translating things and maintaining my Japanese as best as I can. I am involved with Friendship is Epic and have been helping them translate various from Japanese to English, and in addition to that I've been translating various songs for people. More recently, I've been working with Haru to translate a particularly special song.

Also, if you guys have the chance, check out this fic I translated not too long ago originally written by Sasho-san =) 
Rock Cider by Sasho-san Otonashikun Translation
Winter absolutely annoys me. I always seem to find the need to answer the call of nature in cold weather, and after getting up out of bed, I found myself walking down a hallway trying to find the bathroom. The moonlight shone dimly through the windows, but I couldn’t seem to get to the toilet. Why? Well, I always use the toilet in my house or my school, but where was I now? I was in Pinkie’s home, not Sweet Apple Acres.
Ah, this isn’t it, I thought disappointingly.
The room I had mistaken for the bathroom was in fact the living room where I had drunk soup filled with hard rocks. I surveyed the area and for a moment I saw myself struggling to drink the Pie family specialty. It was just a vision, but I remembered just how hard it was just to try and chew rocks as food for two straight days.
I smiled a bitter smile. I understood now why Pinkie Pie has an iron stomach. Such difficult circumstances made her so strong. Then, I reminded myself why I got out of my

So that's the generally what I have been up to lately. I could go into more detail, but I don't think it is that necessary. I just want to let you guys know that I am still alive and still serious about producing things! I know I am not the only person whose art/writing is negatively affected by college so I can take some comfort in that and not feel as guilty aha

Until next time guys! :bademoticon:

Ok cool! If there are specifics that you like or something you think I should focus on more, I'd love to hear what you think.

For sure. If I think of any, I'll let you know =)

For now, your work looks so good so far. I can tell you try to make the poses look ....dynamic for the lack of a better term xD They aren't just boring poses

I'm alive still. I'll make a journal entry explaining things (of which I've said to myself for over a month) |:

But anyways, the short answer to my absence is school.
