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~

~UTAU Buddies~

~More Friends~

Hi, all! I'd really like to work on a new voicebank for my UTAU, Minarai Mona, but I can't decide what I'd like to work on next! So I'd really like it if you would help me choose~

Please vote in this poll and let me know what voicebank you'd like to see next from Mona!…

Or if you don't care about UTAU, you can just ignore this and go on with your day.

Thanks~ ^^

1) You must post these rules 
2) Share 10 facts about yourself 
3) Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for people you tag 
4) Choose 10 people and put 10 icons in their journal

*deletes half the rules 'cause I can* 

Things about myself (I realized about halfway through that I've done a meme like this before, so I'll try and keep from repeating the facts I used last time, ahh)
1) I like coding. A lot of the time I'll write programs to do repetitive/tedious tasks in UTAU for me (usually messing with otos). I haven't made a plugin yet, but that's something that I'd like to learn how to do sometime.
2) I really like flowers. Like a lot. They are probably one of my favorite things.
3) My real name actually isn't Nicola - I started using it as my screen name because it was one of the girl name select options on Pokemon Sapphire and I liked how it sounded for my Pokemon OC, hehe.
4) I like eating wintergreen mints when I'm being productive because they help me focus. Whenever I take an exam, I'll arrive with my pockets full of them. (though it looks like i'm out of them right now ;;A;;)
5) You know that person who always cries at movies? Yeah, that's me.
6) I actually tried recording a messy tri-pitch shout bank for Mona with a lower-quality mic just to see if I could even pull it off. The shouting samples were all recorded at E5.
7) I used to prefer my eggs scrambled, but then I had them too many times and now I only like them sunny-side up.
8) I really like roleplaying, but I haven't gotten the chance to do it in a while. 
9) If I'm in some situation where I'm out of my routine for more than a few days, I'll often forget to do things that probably shouldn't be forgotten about, like eating.
10) Of the Myers-Briggs personality types, I'm ISTJ and Mona is ENFP, so it turns out that are personalities are exact opposites.

Questions from KittyIttyKirschtein
1) Who's your favourite personal OC? (Describe them omg yas)
    Umm probably Mona since I do the most stuff with her? She's a really bouncy and happy person, and I really like seeing her interact with other UTAUs, be it in art, song, stories, or whatever, really. ^^
2) Who inspired you to do what you do? (be it art,writing, ect.)
    I was first inspired to do art by watching Pokemon as a kid and wanting to draw in the same style. I was first inspired to do programming by both my dad and a really awesome teacher I had in high school.
3) What languages do you speak?
    I speak English and a little bit of Spanish, but my Spanish is pretty rusty since I haven't really used it since high school.
4) Did you have/are you in a Furry phase?
    Ahaha, no. I can appreciate animal/anthro OCs and have a few of them myself, but I don't think I've ever had a furry phase.
5) Do you like foxes? (this is an important question)
    Yeah, foxes are cool.
6) Who's your favourite vocaloid?
    I really like Rin, VY2, Yukari, Lily, SeeU, Avanna, and Miku. I don't think I can pick just one favorite, though. :'D
7) Do you pronounce llama with an L or a Y for the ll (language test lmao)
    I pronounce it with an L, but if I were trying to speak Spanish, I would pronounce it with a Y.
8) Who are your crushes? :3c
    I don't have any, sorry, hahaha.
9) What's your sexuality?
    I'm straight.
10) Do you love yourself? (say yes plz)
    Sure, I think I'm pretty okay.

Questions from me
1) How are you today?
2) Do you like webcomics? What's your favorite, or one that you would like to read at some point?
3) What mythological creature do you most closely associate with, and why?
4) What is your favorite snack?
5) Do you have a song stuck in your head right now? If so, what song? If not, what's your favorite song?
6) If you were part of an adventuring party, what would your class/job/skillset be?
7) What do you like to do in your free time?
8) Do you procrastinate a lot?
9) Do you have any pets? If not, what kind of pet would you most like to own?
10) What is the last video game you played?

Cola's 2014 Art Summary by NicolaCola
Cola's 2014 Art Summary
Here's my art summary for the year! I don't think I really improved at all? But I was happy to find how much easier it was to fill this thing than it was last year - a lot of the things are sloppy and unfinished, sure, but I'm happy that I at least drew something each month. 

January: I wanted to play around with colors, so that's what I did. Thought about doing more landscape drawings, started one or two, but never got very far.
February: Didn't draw much this month. Shinami was working on a USSloids website and asked me to color lineart that she drew of Kirimi. I wanted to try a new coloring style, but it turned out kind of yucky-looking. :/
March: A Pathfinder character of mine! I never finished coloring her, but it was fun experimenting with the parts that I did get done.
April: This was the only thing I found from this month. Still was thinking about Pathfinder a lot, and drew a map for reference while editing a certain Pathfinder character's backstory.
May: Started drawing more later in the month, mostly sketches because I didn't have my drawing tablet with me. This is a map for a story I've been slowly working on called the Friend Ship. I drew it on paper, took a picture, then used a mouse and the curve tool in SAI to make it. Also drew a star map, but that's significantly less interesting.
June: Still didn't have my tablet, but had time to draw, so I sketched a lot of things with the paper I could find. This one was of Hana Chikako.
July: Same story as June. Thought designing sounded like fun, so I made an alternate outfit for Fuu!
August: Finally had access to my tablet again. Took one of my sketches from before and colored it finally to release Mona's Fizz bank.
September: Felt the urge to animate! Took one of my Friend Ship OCs and drew her hair blowing in the wind~ 
October: Was excited for Homestuck's gigapause to end, and at the same time nostalgic for an old Homestuck roleplay I was in, so I drew my Homestuck OC flying around in a bubble, since her land was the Land of Fungi and Bubbles.
November: This was a joke OC for a friend's story, who is basically part vampire, cat, bird, phoenix, light, darkness, mermaid and teacup. Coloring the wings and fire-tail was a lot of fun, so I may upload the full thing if anyone wants to see it.
December: I drew several things this month, experimenting with landscapes and animation and design. I liked the colors in this one so far and I hope to finish it at some point.

Eye Blink Animation
This was a quick and fun thing I did today! I'd like to animate more, so I think starting small and working my way up to bigger motions is a good way to go. If anyone knows any good animation tutorials or good animations to try out for practice, please let me know!
