Hi! I'm Cola, a user of UTAU and owner of the UTAUloid Minarai Mona. You'll mostly just see me drawing UTAU-related things, though I may draw something else every once in a while. I also make UTAU covers, so be sure to check those out, too~

I finished recording Mona's JP VCV Burst append! It has four pitches (D4, G4, C5, E5), is romaji encoded, and was recorded with the same mic that I used for Mona's Core bank. The mic started kind of giving out for C5 and E5, plus they're some pretty high notes, so sadly they don't have quite the same level of quality as D4 and G4. That said, I still think the bank as a whole sounds pretty good. I'll upload a demo soon!

As for VCCV English! I'd been thinking about getting a new microphone for a while now, and I feel like VCCV English is too many recordings and too beautiful of a system for me to attempt it on the old microphone that I have now. So I ordered a Blue Nessie! It's scheduled to arrive some time this week, so I plan to do a bit of recording this weekend! I don't think I'll get the bank all done in one go, so don't be expecting a finished bank on Monday or anything, haha. ^^;; I'll be sure to put up some demos of that as I make progress on it, though! I'm super excited for VCCV, eee~ >u<

Now we got BAD BLOOD! by NicolaCola
Now we got BAD BLOOD!
WOW i haven't sat down and drawn something serious like this in a long time. This was a lot of fun!

Here's Mona for moonst4r's Bad Blood collab! Still trying to come up with an action-y nickname for her, though... Any suggestions?? I'm going with 'Sure-fire'.

Bang! by NicolaCola
Bang!
Here's some art for a cover of Cyber Thunder Cider with my experimental VCV English bank for Mona! I was going to wait to post this till I made a video and put it up on YouTube, but I'm too lazy to make a video after all, so I'm just uploading this now. |D

I'm currently working on art for Moon's Bad Blood collab, so look forward to seeing that! ouob

Mona's 3rd birthday was yesterday!
:party:

I was planning to get her Burst append done by then and release it, but that didn't really happen, sorry. I tried to record a third pitch (C5) for her Burst append last week, but it didn't sound nearly as strong as I wanted it to, and it was too strong to pass for a falsetto pitch. I decided to move the pitch I recorded to be part of Mona's core multipitch bank, since it wasn't bad, just not fitting for her Burst append. I'm going to try again some time this week to record a third pitch for Burst, but I'm going to try at E5, since I feel I can pull off a decent shout-y style at that pitch. If I don't finish recording before I go back to school, it will take a lot longer to finish that bank, so I'll do my best and keep you all posted.

If you haven't heard how Mona's Burst append sounds yet, here are some sneak peeks at her voicebank on my SoundCloud!

Because why not.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? 
I've been here for 3 years.

2. What does your username mean?
Nicola is a name that I chose as an online alias because it was one of the name suggestions for a girl in Pokemon Sapphire and I really liked how it sounded? I wanted to move towards just being Cola so it didn't sound like I was assigning myself a random name because that was kind of weird to reference irl?? But Shinami said I should be NicolaCola because it sounded funny and I agreed and here we are.

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Friendship, Flowers, Rainbows! :D

4. Are you left or right handed?
I'm right-handed.

5. What was your first deviation?
Minarai Mona Concept Art - I thought I would be grossed out looking at my old art, but I'm actually surprisingly still pretty okay with this??? Like there are a lot of things that aren't great about it, like the lack of shading, the snake nose, the terrible anatomy, etc., but I do still really like Mona's design, haha. The anatomy, though. I still can't do anatomy. |D

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Umm I dunno! I think it's more fun to do art stuff when I'm experimenting with new stuff. I don't do that too often, though, which is probably why i don't upload many things, haha. ;;

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I think maybe like a painterly style? If that makes sense.

8. What was your first favourite?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAKUPO by DeviantTear
These color palettes are so cool, ahh. Also dat Gakupo. *u*

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
UTAU-related stuff, drawings/paintings of nature, stuff with pretty colors, animations, interesting character designs.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I think probably NanoMortis. Their style is absolutely gorgeous, I like using their art for my desktop wallpapers, ha~

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
My bby Snow-Songstress. >u< <3

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Shinami showed me UTAU! I think being a part of the UTAU community has definitely impacted my life. ouo

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Well I use Paint Tool SAI most of the time, but I used to be really good with colored pencils and those are really fun?? 

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I don't think I have one, haha.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
UMMMMmmm yeah i have no idea gomen
