REVISION: Manga Kleio - Tis is how I look like

Gawd! I have just noticed last night an embarrassing and glaring mistake on that manga self I have drawn and then posted here on Saturday, 17th November 2007 while I was idly browsing thru some of my manga magazines.

It really shows how amateur I am at this. Cos, I have literary forgotten to draw eyebrows on it. OMG *shakes head unbelievingly*. How could I have possibly left it out? Now, the more I look at the previous drawing, the more I felt how silly it look. Lol.

Later on, I have noted another feature on my face wasn't depicted on the drawing. You see, I have double eyelids - something many people would proud to have. Hence, I then boldly and deftly added it on the drawing.

It seems to look much better now. Right?

Since I do not know how to color it using graphic software, I had to revert to the traditional way - using color pencils.

Oh yea, some of you had asked the meaning of the Japanese characters contained in that speech bubble. Actually in romaji it reads as, "Hajimemashite, Dozo Yoroshiku". Meaning, "Pleased to meet you" and "Please favor me". Something like that :D

Now you look more stunning. ;)
I like the color you put into your drawing.

Kok said...

Your drawing was good enough till I also didn't notice you left out your eyebrows. kekeke

You're good in drawing. Maybe you can draw me by using one of my photos? :P

Kleio the Muse said...

Yes I am. Oops, so much for modesty. Hehehehe. I really wasn't too good in the coloring department. Needed more practice. Thanks.

Kleio the Muse said...

Hahaha, sure bo? Or we both also blur sotong kind. Lol.

You are not afraid I mess up with your good looks meh? :D

Kok said...

I'm sure lah. Your drawing confirmed A+! Cause, the most difficult in drawing is human and you've done it well!:D

Aiyo, I can only think of you making me look better in drawing leh. I don't think you'll mess me up. haha!

When I was looking at the first drawing I had a feeling something was missing but couldn't tell what too. hahaha. Very nice drawing! I used to draw these manga characters as a kid. I doubt I can do it again now. Haha.

Nice! Is that you?

Kleio the Muse said...


Wah I feel I am on cloud 9 already with your praises. Tee hee hee. Thank you.

Kleio the Muse said...


That means you are the alert one :D
I bet you must be good at this too, right. Maybe you should give a go at it again. Would love to see your work.

Kleio the Muse said...


*Dancing with joy* Sankyuuu!!! I am so glad everyone finds it ok. It gives me the incentive to go further with this hobby.

Kleio the Muse said...


Yup! you've got that right. It's me alright. Like how I look? At least now you all know how I look like, tho it's only in manga style. Lol

I agree with che-cheh... very nice choice of colours, funky yet subdued (though I must be the only person who thinks that blue hair is "subdued"!)

I tot it'll be fun at least that the manga me stood out even if the real me don't. Besides, blue is my favorite color :D  Lol. Blue hair subdued?
