Happy New Year folks!
Hope you are having a good time with family, friends or your 2D waifu or hasubando or Smart Doll ^^
This year's illustrations are based off Ukiyo-e which is a form of artwork that was popular in Japan between the 17th and 19th centuries. At the time Ukiyo-e was used to portray not only scenery and people but also hentai and guro too. Check out this Google image search to see what I mean.
I'm really pleased with the way these turned out - all illustrated by our Moekana illustrator Ikkyuu-sensei.
These images are all HD at 1920px x 1080px which may make decent wallpaper for some of you too.
Not everything we own (or people we know) are perfect. Everything and everybody has imperfections which are based on your perceptions. Change your perceptions and you will travel through life much more harmoniously - instead of living a life complaining and wasting energy.
Discover your passion and the rest will just follow. It has done so for me and I know it will do so for you too.
There will always be folks around you who don't believe in you.
The important thing is not to convince them but to continue to believe in yourself.
Doing something leads to something, doing nothing always leads to nothing.
Once upon a time we used to read paper books - these days we look at screens instead. A different part of your brain starts to work when you pick up a paper book to read. If you got time in the new year then give it a try.
Yes I'm still reading the Howard Schultz Starbucks book ^^;
Taking a break from time to time is just as important as forging forward. Cars stop in a pitstop for a reason. Just remember to take it easy on the sugar.
Being afraid to fail means you are also afraid of learning.
Energy is what is required to pursue your goals. Your energy drainers are things like spending time entertaining trolls or convincing the non believers - also lack or proper rest will drain your energy too.
