Next chapter (coming soon!)

The compass clinometer seems like a tricky little piece of equipment, but once you get used to it, it is actually really easy to use. It is not an exaggeration to say that it is the most important item to have when navigating around the field.

Alrighty. We're on the second chapter now. Prepare to be bombarded with useful and handy fieldwork guide!

Intermission: we are going to a Welsh countryside, the land of slates. All the pictures were actually taken from my experience undertaking fieldwork there. Recognize the location?

p/s: next week we will only have one page just for the sake of completeness.

Other important equipment to bring on the field is, of course, all your necessaries stationaries. From pen to papers, as well as forms that need to be filled, it is important to sort them all out before said field work started.

Next, we have all the other relevant apparels and accessories that would be essential to take on the field. The same rule still applies, so prepare accordingly.

You could pack a lot of stuff, but remember first and foremost, to get your priority right .

It's time to learn what to bring and vice versa for a fieldwork project. First thing first, we should cover the things that literally speaking cover us every day; the clothes.

The most fundamental rule is that: wear the right thing at the right occasion at the right time. Pretty simple and self-explanatory I must say, but this applies to everyday life as well.

Yep. Definitely the things you would do when there is nobody else at home. Looking at rocks.

Nothing much this time, just some background scenery in which the main characters reside. Since I'm really bad at drawing backgrounds, I've taken the liberty to use real-life pictures instead and just alter it a little bit.

Try to guess where is the actual pictures were taken.

Nothing too significant this chapter. Just your normal everyday conversation with friends after classes is done.

On a side note, salutation to anyone who recognize the quote " if I can do it tomorrow, I won't do it today".

This time, we had the proper introduction of mineral girls in this series. Some people said that mineral girls started to appear after scientist managed to extract "the heart of minerals" from random rocks. Chances of them to appear is still very, very rare. Society is graduating began to accept them as well, and they are protected by law, so exploitation of their abilities without proper paperwork is highly illegal.

Who knows that more will appear in the future. After all, the Earth is a vast, giant ball of mineral in itself.

p/s: this is the fictional theme of this series, and while the mineral is real, the character itself is not.

Happy 10th Birthday Hatsune Miku!

This post might be several days late, but here we go. Happy Birthday to our beloved virtual diva, Hatsune Miku! It's been 10 years since you first appeared, and since then and you've inspired people from all over the globe. Bringing happiness, smile, and sometimes tears through your songs, you live on as a "living being" in all of our hearts. And your legacies will surely continue on, till the unforeseen future.

This year I've decided to recreate the drawing I made from 5 years ago. I must say, I've improved a lot from back then, even if art is not my major. You can see the old post about the drawing here. There is a lot more room for improvement of course, and who knows what kind of different art style I will adapt in the next 5 years?

Happy birthday to you~ Happy birthday to you~

It's the first reveal of this series original creation: the Mineral Girls! The mineral girl shown here is Orthoclase Feldspar, from the Feldspar member. 

A monoclinic crystal in structure, it has a short prismatic habit with simple twinning. It is usually white or pink in colour, opaque with vitreous lustre. It hardness on the Moh's scale is 6 and has 2.56 g/cc density.

The split hair colour indicates the simple twinning you can see under thin section. She uses bladed hand weaponry as her main offense, tho her specialty is sneaking up on target and reconnaissance. She had a gentle personality with people that she knew well, but can be rather sharp and serious when things matter most.

That's it for Orthoclase Feldspar. Unfortunately, she does not play an important role in the series, mainly just to serve as the introduction for mineral girl. This might be the first and last time you would see her around, but who knows what will happen in the future?

This time we had the full reveal of the main character: Kid Rock! Simple name really; Kid from my own handle name and Rock because rock rocks. Truthfully, I have terrible naming senses, so yeah, it came out just because.

Does the name ring a bell to a certain celebrity? Well, it does, but just ignore that.... haha....

31st August is a very special date because it's the birthday of our beloved virtual idol, Hatsune Miku! This special occasion is celebrated by fans all around the world, each with their own way to show their love and dedication to her. This relatively quick post showcased the pictures of the birthday event I had attended nearby, and it is no less joyous. Pictures were taken with my camera phone so it might not have the best quality overall, but nevertheless, enjoy viewing!

Sometime, you can't help but to wonder about the universe as your consciousness began to fade away from reality...

Especially during lectures, right?

Now that we're done with the prologue, it's time to delve into the main story.

p/s: the lecturer is actually inspired from one of the most well known lecturer in my teaching institution.

Animangaki 2017

"Dear Gakis, today you play the role of a magician. You are invited by our beloved King, Kei-chan the Majestic, to join as citizens of AniManGaki, our magical kingdom." - taken from the official event booklet.

It's been 6 years since the first Animangaki we've attended. Animangaki had always been one of our favourite animation, comics and gaming convention. Since then, we've been coming to the event with full vigour every year. This year is no different. Well, not totally. Our main focus had shifted from being to attendee/cosplayers/media to doujin booth vendors. As such, this year event is totally a refreshing experience, from the way we interact with people to how we manage our time in the event itself.

I could talk about it all day long but I will have the pictures to speak for itself. (This will be a very looong post, so prepare yourself!)

  • Day 0. Compared to previous years, this is the first differences that we had experienced beforehand. Being both a doujin booth vendors and one of the figures exhibitors, we had a chance to come to the event the day before the event started to set up all our stuff. It is a refreshing sight to behold in its own way. 

  • The event hall. The layout of the event hall is more or less the same, with the doujin booth section expanded a bit to cater more flourishing artists (including me I suppose, haha). The way the logistic was organized can be said to be smooth, but congestion of traffic, especially in the narrow doujin section, was to be expected considering the number of attendees.

  • Stage activities. The event featured many local talents to perform on the stage including; The Crestfall Band, Deltarythm, Luna Lorrain, The MASH, Project EG@O, 5 Minute Heroes, Yume and Harmonia ACG.There were also panels and interviews from international cosplayers and artist such as Ying, Joelle and D. Watt. Other main event highlight includes Animangaki Idol and Cosplay Competition.

  • The cosplay competition participants had done a great job at showcasing their talents in both prop/costume making and acting, as their strive to awe the viewers of their performance. This year competition is won by the Gilgamesh/Enkidu duo with their Fate/Grand Order skit.

  • Later in the evening, we are graced with concerts from the local ACG music group, Harmonia as well as the critically acclaimed international artist, Joelle from Japan, famous for her work in Final Fantasy series and several other video games.

  • Upstairs, inside the so called "Elemental Temple" was the heavens for collectors and hobbyist alike, for all the figurines and toys were displayed beautifully. We even had the chance to showcase some of the figurines in our collection for guest to feast their eye upon.

  • As for the cosplay, the quality of the costume and the intricate details is nothing to scoff at. Per usual, the event showcase an array of exquisite cosplays from varieties of series and original works.

  • To close up event report, we would like to post some of the pictures from our doujin booth. We did not have the time and luxury to do any cosplay this year sadly, as we are too focused on putting up a splendid doujin booth. Since this is the first time we had set up one, we started relatively small, but that doesn't mean it was less in term of quality. Our booth focused heavily on outreach, as such we had fun having visitors to come and learn about a lot of new stuff together. All in all, its was an extremely enjoyable experience.

Thanks for having a read through this post. See you guys for next year Animangaki!
