Hi there folks', I'm Mike, but most folks know me as Midori, call me whatever!

YURI GOGGLES - ACTIVATE!

About me?

I'm just yer' regular guy... Pfft--- Couldn't type that with a straight face...

I'm nearly blind, completely in my right eye and severely in my left, but my sexy glasses are a big help! I'm on the Autistic Spectrum, Aspergers Syndrome to be precise, I'm also Dyspraxic, and Bipolar, and an insomniac. I think that's everything wrong with me.

On the bright side I'm actually pretty cheerful most of the time, I'm quite shy, especially so at first, but I'm always hopeful to make new friends, so if you want to spark up a conversation, or just simply comment on my artwork, please, feel free, I love the chance to interact with people, and will try my very best to respond as soon as possible!

Why am I here?
I once got told that I'd never be able to draw because of my eyes, so I said, Hey, you want a bet? And that's what brought me here to DeviantArt, my home at (and occasionally away from) home!

What do I like?
In case you couldn't tell I love Manga and Anime, Especially cute Yuri fluff! :heart:
I love tons of music, from J-pop to Rock to Heavy Metal, and I worship Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters almost religiously...
I also LOVE stand-up comedy, especially British stand-up, my favourite comedians are Russell Howard, Dara O'Briain, and John Bishop.
I have MAAAAANY FANDOMS. Anime/manga wise, there are far too many to list...
None anime/manga, my main fandoms are: Doctor Who, Star Wars (Classic trilogy and Expanded Universe), Mass Effect, and Dead Space... It's all Sci-fi, huh.

My goal?
My long term goal is to publish some Manga comics, and maybe start up a small production company! Hopefully in a few years time I'll be good enough! ^w^

Other useless info.
I occasionally do crazy stuff to raise money for charity, mainly Marie Curie Cancer Care
www.mariecurie.org.uk/
Here is a video of me skydiving to raise money for them: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcXV7D…

I'm hopelessly androgynous...
I have a Glasses Fetish that borders on the unhealthy...

One song that always tugs at my heartstrings, and makes me weep like a schoolgirl is Supercell's Perfect Day...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBI01o…

My ultimate guilty pleasure is The Darkness' I Believe in a thing called Love.... Don't judge, awesome glam is awesome...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRYNYb…

My anime Hero is Vash the Stampede from Trigun.

Also, I'm actually a smuggler from Corellia, so, like... Don''t ever tell me the odds, we Corellians hate that.

I guess that's really it...? Anyway, thank you for visiting my page, I really appreciate it, feel free to say hi and leave feedback, really, don't be shy!

Peace and Love!

Hey folks!  

This here is a special journal dedicated to my good friend ram-jam, he is a fantastic artist, I recently commissioned him, and I want to share the wonderful work he did with you!!! 

I commissioned him to draw my Star Wars OCs - Quinn Shara and Kiri Starchaser together. And Quinn Shara and Orchid Shara together!

Here are the fantastic results! :heart:

MidorinoHonoo [commissions] by ram-jam

I can't think of words good enough to do justice to his absolutely stellar effort, I am in love with this art! 

I must say he is a masterclass when it comes to portraying feelings of love, be it the cheeky feelings of love and longing between Kiri and Quinn, or the beautiful unconditional platonic love between adoptive mother and daughter Quinn and Orchid, I am so pleased with these results, I can't even describe it! 

All I can say is that ram-jam is a fantastic artist, who deserves all your love and attention, his style is adorable and full of emotion and love, and he has gone above and beyond with this commission, absolutely wonderful, go to his page, and give his gallery some love, it's well deserved!

Hey folks, how're ya'll doing? 

I'm doing okay, could be better though, I'll get the crap stuff outta the way fast, I swear this journal isn't gonna completely suck... 
Mom went for her tests on Tuesday, and they did find something, but they said they'd caught it early, they're analyzing some of the more in depth tests, but they say cuz' it's early that we shouldn't worry too much, so... In a way it's a relief, Like, it's better to know something's not right than to not know at all, but it's still stressful, and I do worry. 

Also, I was meant to be having a blood test that day, but... Kinda' freaked myself out over everything, it's been rearranged for next week. 

--Anyway yeah, crappy stuff out of the way, art stuff time.-- 

And I've been thinking... I know I said I'd start uploading works in progress', and so far, I've really not been doing that, kind of because I don't like my gallery being filled with incomplete works, but I had an idea, maybe I should upload wips, and then move them into scraps when I upload the finished piece, I mean, that seems like a logical thing to do, heck, IS that what normal artists do anyway? :meow: Do you guys think this is a good idea? :meow:

May also do sketches too...

Also, because I really desire written feedback, like constructive criticism, and advice in how better to improve as an artist, I've decided that occasionally, if I kinda' like a piece, that I might do the whole Request a critique on it. Don't expect it too often though, I'm not gonna request it for anything where I don't feel I've put my absolute all in, because trust me, I don't need telling when my work is crap, I can see it for myself! XD 

By the way, I'm gonna be trying things with my Star Wars OC's, think of it as they have two separate Universes, they are: The Characters, and the Actors, it just seems like so much fun, with plenty of opportunities for action (On "screen"), and plenty for drama, and general funniness and cuteness (Off "set"). 

I also wanna draw more Evergreen, and get back into planning R:star:, cuz' gawd knows I don't draw them enough these days... Also Nene and Rena need love too! Plus the odd fan art here and there, if I feel it. XD 

--Art stuff outta the way, now random crap!--

So I recently saw Pacific Rim for the first time... Yes, I know, how could I have missed it for so long...
Well, at the time it was released in cinemas the scars of Hollywood spins on Japanese culture were still fresh in my mind, I was jaded, and purposely avoided any and all hype trains.... That was a huge mistake.

Good god Pacific Rim is just SO. MUCH. FUN. 

The Jeagers, the Kaiju, the characters (AndTheAwesomeActorsIAdoreAndWoulda'SeenThisMovieDayOneIfIKnewTheyWereInItAtTheTime!)</i> Especially Mako Mori, SO ADORABLE AND BADASS AT THE SAME TIME. You can have my heart right now.  
Eheheh! Ahem! It was just a sheer joy to watch, and really cheered me up when I needed that boost, so it has earned itself a special place in my heart, and among my all time favourite movies. ^_^

Speaking of a special place in my heart, FTL (Faster Than Light) is now on iOS!!! I can't even put into words how awesome that is! Honestly one of the most enjoyable PC games I've ever played, now out for iPads and such! And it's completely the same, the full game, plus the expansion built in, absolutely no in app purchases or bull crap micro-transactions, just the full experience, I'm... probably gonna waste a hundred more hours on it, and you should too if you can! XD 

Anyway, I've been MidoriNoHonoo, obviously, and that's life. 
Please, do let me know what you think about the WIP idea, or anything else for that matter, and as ever:

:heart:LOVE & PEACE:heart:

Hey folks.

Hows junk?
I'm kinda'... Well, I was doing pretty good actually, but bleargh, something always seems to happen around here.
-------
Basically, about a week ago the women in my family all went for a breast cancer screening, it's something they're advising folks to do on TV, and around the hospital and such, (And it's something people should do because ignorance can cause heartbreak), anyway, today they got their results in the post and my Mom's been called back for extra tests. 

It's really worrying, especially when the others got letters basically saying it's all clear... Ugh... I really really hope it's just a follow up, and they find nothing wrong, I don't know how these things work (And can't say I want to), but it's entirely possible that there's nothing bad there and I'm (as usual) worrying over something that turns out to be nothing, right?

Damn it, my heads running a mile a minute now, but luckily we don't have to wait that much longer... She's going for more tests on Tuesday... Hope the results come quick, and more importantly, that they're good.  
-------
In the mean time I'll try to draw, but my heads really out of whack right now...

Thank you ever so much for the watch!  It really made my day (and boy, was it dearly needed!)  Thank you for making the days of others and please continue to do what you do best: being awesome.  (I know I don't know you, but people are awesome, so you are therefore awesome in your own awesome way!  (Unless you aren't human, like a robot or something, which, I guess, in it's own way is awesome also...so I guess you are awesome no matter what you are)). 

...

See how happy you've made me?

I'll stop now

...

Thanks again!

And Don't Forget to Be Awesome!
