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~

So I'm back! And reading my hiatus journal again, I realize I gave you guys virtually no information about where I was or what I was doing. So let me fill you in on what I've been up to this summer!

I went to the mountains for 11 weeks for a program about learning how to be a leader in the church, which also involved working a job. While I was there, I hiked a few times, made a lot of new friends, met people from a lot of different countries, connected with God, grew in my faith and as a person, read a good book, painted a piece of silk (will take a picture soon), camped, star-gazed, and watched the sunrise from on top of a mountain (which I got on video, too - I'll speed it up and see if it's good to upload or maybe use as an UTAU video ahaha). It was an amazing experience, definitely a summer well-spent. It's kind of weird being back home - I don't get winded trying to walk up hills here (way less oxygen at higher altitudes, so you get tired out pretty fast), it's way hotter and more humid here, and I have all these things that I didn't bring with me that I forgot I had (especially clothes, my goodness). XD

I also had my birthday while I was there, which was cool. My mom sent me a package with stuff I could use to throw my own party, so I had cake and noisemakers and glowsticks and played games with my friends and it was super fun~ And my parents gave me the gift of chipping in some money for a new phone, which I'm also excited about, yay. 

So right now I'm at home for a few days before it's back to school! I'll try and get Mona's Fizz release video up some time within the next couple of days, so be looking out for that. Not sure when I'll go through all my notifications (so many, oh gosh @_@) or try to sort through everyone's YouTube uploads (even more, might just give up on those ;;A;;) but I'll try my best to get caught up, ahaha. Also I have a few UTAU things I've been playing with that I'll try to upload to SoundCloud soon. And my sister (reluctantly) agreed to let me bring her microphone with me to school! So I'll probably play around with recording a bit (been wanting to try out tripitch with a quality mic, maybe derp around with VCV English for a little, experiment with voice-acting, etc).

So that's what I'm up to! How are you? What have you been doing this summer? When do you go back to school? Are you working on any cool projects right now? Are there any YouTube videos that have been uploaded in the last 11 weeks that you want me to watch so that I don't have to go through all those subscription emails? /shot Comment or send me a note or something, I really wanna catch up with you guys! ^^

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!

I felt like drawing some kind of snowy night scene, and this is what I ended up with. It was fun blending colors together, but overall this is just the product of playing around.
Molly Hair Animation
If you follow my Scraps, you'll have seen this OC of mine before - her name is Molly, and I felt like making an animation of her. This is pretty simple, and it's been a while since I've animated, so it's kind of derpy in some places, but I hope you like it anyway.
