Serious Business by JohnSu Serious Business by JohnSu
The writing reads 猫好き ("nekozuki" - "cat lover")

In case anyone going through my gallery was like "John Su, why are you so mean to cats?" I can point them to this picture and say "no no, you are mistaken. See? Looove cats."

Oh yeah, I haven't written a story for you guys since the end of September, huh? Let's try a short one for now:

  Majime Magao is normally an easy-going student who couldn't care less about life and the stuff in it - with one exception. He is buttery soft for cats. Whenever he holds one, his heart melts and the tension washes from his face, now filled with the joy and peace that comes from holding a small warm animal. He can do this for hours.

This was an experiment with a trial version of Paint Tool SAI. It was fun! I will probably try more SAI pieces in the future.

I had better, actually, or I'll have wasted $60+.


Made in Flash SAI

Is SAI worthy the money? I've been considering it for a while, and I still have some doubts.

I haven't used it enough to say for sure yet.

So far I've found most utility out of it in painting backgrounds and vandalizing photos (since Flash's vector art stands out too much)

My father is like this towards cats. Any time he mentions them he talks about eating them or doing mean things.

Somedays I want to kill my dad for this.

SAI is very nice and fun to use. Worth every penny. The lines are smoother than PS, and you have a little more control over your lines~
It doesn't have as many features as PS, but it works fine for me.

He looks so happy!

It's got a lot of good features for painting as well, and you don't need to download brushes for it. You just need to adjust the settings for them.

This man would be the ultimate husband.
Anytime you want to end an argument- cat.
Anytime you want to go out with the girls- cat.
Anytime his food looks delicious and you need a distraction- cat.

and when he reflects on his life, he just has these big, gaping holes in his memory where he's just like "what happened?"

The only objection I have is that if THAT facial expression is "the tension wash[ed] from his face, now filled with the joy and peace that comes from holding a small warm animal", then he has a very intense way of showing joy and peace. XD
