Edit: Lol since the obscure joke flew over a lot of people's heads,
the recipe below is a jest. A joke. Though, it's a legit recipe so you can try it out if you're inclined to haha.
Popiah (Fresh Spring Rolls)

Serves 4 | Prep time: 30 mins | Cook time: 40 mins

Ingredients:

3/4 cup cooking oil
20 fresh popiah wrappers
Fresh lettuce leaves, wash and drained dry

Fillings:

3 cloves garlic, finely minced
8 oz shrimp, shelled, deveined and cut into small pieces
2 lbs yambean or jicama, grated
2 oz french beans, sliced
4 bean curd, diced into small pieces
Some store-bought fried shallot crisps, optional

Seasonings:

1 teaspoon salt or to taste
1/2 teaspoon white pepper powder
1 teaspoon sugar or to taste
1 cup water

Sauces:

1/2 cup sweet sauce (tee cheo) or Hoisin sauce
1/4 cup chili sauce (Sriracha or Lingham Hot Sauce)

Method:

Heat up your wok with 1/4 cup oil, shallow fry the bean curd until lightly browned. Dish out and drain on paper towels.

In a deep pot, add in the remaining oil until heated. Transfer the garlic into the deep pot and stir fry until aromatic, add in the prawn and stir fry until slightly cooked.

Add in the yambean or jicama, french beans, salt, pepper, sugar and water, stir well. Reduce the heat and simmer until the yambean or jicama turns soft, for about 30 minutes. Taste the filling, add more salt and sugar to taste. Dish out the filling and keep aside to cool. The filling might be slightly watery.

Lay a piece of the Popiah wrapper on a flat board. Spread a little sweet sauce or hoisin sauce and a little chili sauce on it. Place a lettuce leaf over the sauces. Spoon 3 tablespoons of filling onto the leaf. Top with the fried bean curd and fried shallot crisps. Fold up the two sides of the wrapper and roll up. (You can view the step-by-step pictures of rolling popiah here.) If you wish, you can scoop a tablespoon of the filling juice on top of the Popiah. Serve immediately.


Just messing with ya :')

Nice, lots of other people have said their piece so I don't have much to say... except maybe her mouth is off? not placement-wise but more how it's trying to show her chewing. Maybe it's me but it stands out as odd.

I should play the game sometime

 I just so happen to be binge watching Utawarerumono when I saw this in the group's folders!

Although you're making a joke, I always wondered what was in those wraps - besides how she can always scarf down so many!

While everyone is remarking on shading and the like my only problem is Kuon's  colors...They are off.

The ears are the wrong color - the color used in the anime is more yellow and while the eye shade is close, its also more orange in the anime also the scarf she wears around her neck and shoulders is yellow.

In the end tho its still super cute!

Ah, I'm playing the game at the moment. The anime was quite disappointing, and had cut out most of the stuff you see in the visual novel.

The colours aren't off, though aquaplus.jp/uta/itsu/
I'm going according to the game sprite's colour scheme, which the anime itself is off in terms of both colour and story ^^;

Hello - :iconprojectcomment: member here.

First things first, this really caught my eye when I was passing by. One thing that I really like is the eyes - the size and the way that you've drawn them, with them looking sort of 'droopy', captures the cuteness of the girl well and her hair has been well-drawn too, with the shading pulled off effortlessly. It looks really crisp, and I think you've drawn it very well. Also, that scarf wrapped around her neck is a nice touch in my opinion, and it's sort of a good link with the Popiah that she's holding in her hands because the two of them are a similar colour. Great job! :D

One thing that I noticed though, is that her right hand (left to the viewer) looks a little off - it doesn't seem that she has the Popiah properly in her grip because to me it looks a tad awkward, but the fingers are fine though. It's just the rest of her hands that's making me think, so a way to possibly amend this could be to make the side of it underneath her pinky stick out more over the Popiah so it looks like she's holding it better? I don't know how to explain it properly, but anyway in a general sense I love this picture. Keep up the good work :)

Also, that recipe is a really nice contribution - it looks nice, so maybe I could try it sometime

Hm, I guess the way I've drawn her hands doesn't lend to the illusion of weight as I've drawn the wrap. I'll take note of that, since I didn't really focus much on her hands and just wanted to get them out of the way ahahaha

Her tareme (droopy) eyes are of the original artist's design, which was what I paid homage to. It's still different to Mitsumi Misato's eyes, but I had hoped to get a similar effect with the way I draw them. These eyes are supposed to droop and sag at the corners to evoke the definitive, sympathy-magnet, puppy eyes. (You can view the original sprites here: aquaplus.jp/uta/itsu/)

They are in the same palette (pastel) and they therefore will work together to give a soft feel in the piece.

ProjectComment projectcomment.deviantart.com/ is here to critique your work! Let's go.

First off, being a bit of a foodie, I'll have to try this recipe sometime. I'm always in the mood for a new taste sensation. Thanks for the recipe!

Second, the girl looks adorable. There's two things that stand out about her to me. First off, there's her dark hair, tied back a little behind her. I've always been a fan of long hair, especially with something tying it back. This is no exception. Nice job on that.

The second is the scarf around her neck. I love it when people wear scarves. She looks gorgeous in it. Nice job on the scarf. It looks kind of bunched up, but that's why it works. Excellent, excellent job.

If I had to be critical on anything, it's that while this is an excellent pic, it's just a tad moe-ish. I'm not a fan of moe because it's overly cutesy and sweet. I've always preferred general/shonen/or bishonen to moe.But I'll make an exception in this case because it's kept to a minimum.

I love this, both the girl and the recipe. For once, I've found something that satisfies both my eyes and my stomach! Thanks for that! Welcome to The List.

It's a food that has had a special place in my heart. It's a local delicacy here that I've eaten since young which is similar to how it's made in-game, so I figured I post it as some form of a jest.

This character's design is quite unique, her creator(s) drawing inspiration from the Ainu people, from clothing to culture, food and even religion. To me, it's a fresh breath from the incessant flood of kimono/yukata and serafukus, so I'm quite fond of Mitsumi Misato and Ama Tsuyuki's work in this series.

Being an enthusiast of the visual novel genre, moe is unavoidable, and it is popular for both consumers and companies alike, especially for the male demographic. Although you may like your art to be more mellow, there are many that are drawn to this style of art, and thus to each their own, much like how the female demographic favours the equivalent being the bishonen genre. But of course, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing, so there must be a balance, much like oversweetening your coffee will ruin it, just a dash of sweetener will bring out the coffee's notes.

So kawaii ^-^ #projectcomment  The only thing I would change is it seems like the background is weirdly shaded. It may just be me, but where you seem to have the light coming from, there is a soft dark spot that throws the picture off.

The background is a gradient, and nothing more, so I'm quite puzzled by your comment. It's not meant to reflect or emit any form of light.

Hi, I found this deviation through ProjectComment/#projectcomment
You've done a great job with the style here; not only is it very cute and pretty but it also looks like something you might seen in a shoujo anime. Those bright expressive eyes are rendered very beautifully, and those little crumbs at the sides of her mouth combined with her blush are very cute. I would suggest you give the hair a little more shading on the viewer's left (her right) to help give it some depth. You might also add a bit more on the crown of the head. I'd also suggest you give the hands a bit more shading and highlights. You've drawn them very well, but they don't match the face in terms of how much attention they've been given. All in all though, this is a very nice piece!

Lupinalia Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a really small patch of hair though, so I'm not sure if it's due the additional effort for further rendering. Most often than not, it's ignored completely.

As the face is the focal point of the subject, it has to be given the most attention and work, and all other areas diminished slightly to enhance this effect a little more. All this helps pull the viewer's eyes to meet my subject's, with her facial features and to the wrap she's holding. You'll notice that the parts of the picture that I want the viewer to focus on are rendered nicely, and follows an intended path, such as eyes>right ear>hair>scarf>shirt>wrap.

Perhaps I might need to further render her hands, though. I'm a little unwilling to add another darker shade to her hair as it might turn out black, which is bad

Hello I'm from ProjectComment 
I remember your art! (Btw, I think that when I was really really young, about 6 years ago or so, I found your art in an artbook/website, I can't remember. Haha you were my childhood inspiration!)
I think the beauty in your art is how adorable it is, and that I could still remember your style after a long time :) What I like the most are always the eyes, the slightly-slanted, bright adorable eyes always attracted me the most. After seeing your other art, I feel that the beauty of your colouring is simple with not too many tones, but it turns out looking bright and happy! Perhaps the only thing you can work on is the fingers, her left hand looks like she isn't really holding the popiah xD (also, that recipe though)

Lupinalia Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm pleasantly surprised and honoured to have been an inspiration to a fellow artist!
To be frank, I've never really viewed my work in a positive light, and often thought that it was subpar ^^;

But yes, the use of the pastel palette, combined with soft shading contributed much to the overall feel of softness, warmth and cheerfulness. Using too many tones and shades will only serve to complicate this.

As for her hands, yes, I suppose how I drew it didn't lend the impression of weight of what her food was supposed to have, and might need further tweaking.

Thank you for your kind words! Your comment certainly did make my day in the morning :>

I think it's just a matter of style, I still remember when I was really young, I saw one of your drawings and thought "man, if one day I could be even half as amazing as this, I'd be happy!" Though my style has changed quite a bit, I didn't think I'd find your art again xD
Now that I've seen more of your art, I think it's better to leave the shading simple and sweet :)
No problem! I'm happy I did :)

Hello! I'm here for ProjectComment!
You have such a nice style, it looks like it's an official artwork from an anime! I especially like how you did the eyes, they're gorgeous!
However, I think it looks a bit flat, you should try do some more shadows, maybe a few darker ones as well! The lower part of the picture almost looks like it hasn't any! Especially the hand and what she's holding, you should have done some solid shadows as well!

Official art? Nah, you jest.
Mitsumi Misato's level of art is on a whole 'nother level compared to mine - He's been drawing for AQUAPLUS for almost 2 decades .w.)

Thanks for your thoughts! I'll definitely keep a lookout for my shading errors!
