Journal History



Leafy | Riu | Birdy


"I love Masamune-sama more than you."

Hello there, I'm Riu! (* '∀') You can call me Leafy, Starlight, whatever floats yer boat, lmao. Nice to meet you~♥ I'm a stupid little Canadian girl with a Vietnamese descent who just loves to draw. ヽ(;▽;)ノ And write stories and fanfiction. 〆(・∀・@)

I mostly draw original, crossover or roleplaying art in my DA account and my Tumblr has all of my fanarts!! I only came to DA for a single thing; DRAW. That's all I can do. (´;ω;`) To be honest, I draw mostly for other people than for myself, asdfghjkl;

Sorry for not posting up more artworks, I'm a super super super lazy butt. If you were thinking about my inactiveness in here, it's the only reason why lmao. And yeah, I favorite any amazing pieces and my friend's artworks~ >w< I just love the things that can inspire me!(*´▽`*)

I love typing with Japanese emoticons. DEAL WITH IT.

Date Masamune-sama is my precious king who always breaking my lonely kokoro. Makoto, Kuroko, Eren, Subaru, N, Ikuto and Soushi are my sparkly princes. Lucina, Ryuko, Luka and Sayaka are my sparkly princesses.

Whenever I get a kind comment, fave, and watch, I appreciate EVERYTHING!! I've never expected that you guys look at my work!!

Please do not repost or edit my art without permission and credit, thank you very much!

Frequently Asked Questions! Please Read!


Q. How do you do your drawings? What painting software do you use?
I use Paint Tool SAI and Photoshop CS2/Elements 8.0 to do my art! I also use Fire Alpaca and Paint.Net, but only occasionally.

Q. Do you use a drawing tablet? What kind?
I sure do, a Wacom Bamboo Capture! I got it when I was 12~ I will love it forever ♥

Q. How long does it take to finish a drawing?
It may look easy and fast to do, but truth is, it's not. It can takes me days, weeks and even months to finish a drawing. It really takes time to draw with care.

Q. Do you do requests, art trades or commissions?
I'll definitely say yes to art trades or commissions and my requests...really depends. You can go ahead and request me and all, but I have to consider what you request interesting (Mostly on character design) for me to most likely do it. If you request me something stupid, then I won't do it at all.

Q. When do you do Requests/Art Trades/Commissions?
I open art trades and commissions anytime you want~ ^ q ^ But if my worklist is really long, I have to close them for a short period of time to finish all of them. ; w ;

Q. Do you do drawing tutorials?
I would love to do one, but I'm really inexperienced in this state. X _ X I always try my best to improve so I can help you guys! There are some amazing tutorials you can find on DA, they're really helpful!! ^ q ^

Q. Can I make a fanart of your OCs?
YES, you can! //Happy tears// I feel so honored and thankful that you're interested in my OCs and artwork! Q w Q

Q. When did you start to draw?
When I was around three~ ; w ; I liked to draw in that age, but I started loving it when I was 7~ I started to draw manga when I was 8. > v <

Q. What tools do you paint with?
I use the brush tool the most, but I also use Pen, Air Brush, Water Color and Oil Water brushes~

Q. Do you do livestreams?
Yes, I definitely do! I do my drawing processes in there instead of Youtube~ Check it out if you want to! ^ q ^ Livestream Channel

Q. Do you RP?
I really love to RP with Roleplay Groups in DA~ I'm not so interested with do roleplay in script through notes or chatrooms, but I don't mind to do one at all if you ask me.

Would you like to participate in my contest/manga/artbook?
Ah, well...I will be so DELIGHTED to, really. ; w ; I'm completely alright with doing contests and artbook contribution, but it'll kind of cost you if you want me to do a manga for you. But SOMETIMES....I can post art PROBABLY belated... Q w Q

Q. I'm in a chatty mood today! Would you like to chat with me?
Yes! Sure! I always have a chatty mouth~! XDD Don't hestitate to comment! :3

Q. Do you think you can join my contest/group?
Yes, most definitely! Although I'll only do it if both catches my interest. Don't hesitate to invite me into art contribution groups, I'll be delighted to!

Q. What do you look like IRL?
A happy-hopping unicorn that farts rainbows in disguise.

Q. Hurry up on my request/trade/commission. I'm growing really impatient.
...Excuse me? Are you seriously rushing an artist who is practically busy with a SHIT LOAD of drawings to do? Okay, rushing people; do not EVER think it's a good idea. The more you rush me, the more I will be pressured. Remember; I have a life outside of deviantART. It's very likely that you can make my life so stressful if you continue to push me around. We all hate being pressured, so if you do that, I will most definitely cancel your request. If you don't understand, then please leave this website.

Q. Why do you like anime bishies (pretty boys) so much? It's pretty weird, you should stop.

Q. What's your goal on life?
To marry Masamune-sama.

Q. Riu, Date Masamune's inside your house.

Thank you so much for reading!!

Q. Can I share your art?
Sure! I'm really glad you would! But as long as you credit my art AND ask me, okay? ^ w ^

Q. Can I edit your art?
I can say yes UNLESS if you ask me first, please. If you've edit my art without doing so, I'm seriously going to hunt you down.

Q. Is it okay for me to redistribute your art somewhere else?
Sure you can, but just like always, ASK ME FIRST.

Q. But I'll credit you, though.
Sorry, that doesn't mean anything to me. I'm glad that you did, but I still need you to always ask me.

Q. Can I claim your art?

Q. Can I edit your art when it's a commission/trade/request for me?
Of course you can, but even though I know you and all, you still need my permission to do so.

Q. Why do I always have to ask you just to use some art?
Why? WHY? Well, reasons. First, I don’t want people to gain control over my art, which belongs to MY property. If you tend to do some things without my authority, then you’re pretty much really humiliating me for taking away all of the support I need in my art, which contains ALL of my effort and time. Trust me, I will lose all of my confidence in art if you tend to steal all of the support that I deserve. You should know by now that I do NOT want that at all. Stealing is VERY disrespectful and all I just want from all of you guys to support me so I can have the courage to move forward and draw again.

Q. What will happen if I don't ask you?
WELL, bad things will happen, of course. I..CAN have some sort of distrust not only to you, but to all of my fans as well. The more and more non-authorized reposts or edits I see, the more I can believe that I won't ever post art through the internet again.

Q. Can I at least use your art as my profile icon, desktop background, sidebar image, journal sharing, etc?
Okay, for that, yes. As long as it’s not reposting, go ahead! Any kind of personal use of my art is completely fine, but please credit and link-back when using! (Desktop use for exception)

►Sengoku Basara: The END ~Piano Medley for Listener



I forget a lot of shit so please. You guys will really help me out if you do, so thanks a lot. > o < And also, I'm truly sorry for forgetting any of those things, I live my life as a procrastinator soooooooooo-- asdfghjkl;

If what I owe you are requests, I'm sorry, but requests are not top priority on my worklist. If you're wondering about your progression of any art I owe you, please look at my of WIPs. And.... duly note that I work on art that catches my interest, mostly based on their character design, haha.

However, I would appreciate it if you note me but please don't spam my inbox with it. Please, one note is enough.

Thanks, baby
