Hello hi! I’m Gene, and welcome to my cozy little corner of the internet. I’m currently 22 and I use she/her pronouns! I’m a Filipino artist who loves original characters and stories and a lot of other fun stuff! I’m currently studying in college right now but I try to find the time to work on my art. I’m self-taught and I’ve never had any formal art classes other than the mandatory ones in school. I learned from various artistic inspirations throughout the years, and I insert a lot of my gained interests into my work! I’ve been drawing since I was 5, more or less, and I remembered making stories and comics around the same time.
Also pardon if my sentence construction sounds weird sometimes, English is not my first language and classic lit ruined the way I use commas, so I’m very sorry for the running sentences. Nagsasalita ako ng Tagalog! Pwede kang makipag-usap sa akin ng ganito kung maalam ka, pero ok din sa akin ang Ingles ‘wag kang mag-alala SDFKHS
BTW I have two main sonas that I regularly draw to represent myself, other than my actual self: Beans, the moth/worm on a string nerd, and Dr. Soma, the neuron! You’ll see them around.
My tools of the trade are Paint Tool Sai, Ibis Paint X on mobile, Clip Studio Paint (sometimes), and Photoshop for editing stuff. I use Notepad++ for most of my coding, and my main browser of choice is Firefox.
Also, I'll credit any works I post here to the respective creators, aside for myself! The backgrounds for most pages of this site are screenshots of Minecraft builds that I made on my own. I use Mizuno's 16craft as the mod pack!
why build a neocities site?
Originally it was just going to be a showcase/an introduction of all my currently developing stories for people not caught up in the lore of my incoherent ramblings about my Blorbo of the Week - but it wouldn’t hurt to add more stuff in here too! This is why my site is the way it is today. I started this idea for a carrd site, but I felt that the free features were pretty limiting - sometimes I love the challenge of limitations, but honestly I realized I wanted to do more with this, and I'm glad neocities is here to be the perfect alternative.
Putting some pets in here since I got into Chicken Smoothie...I'll add other stuff here when I get to it >:]
