I've been wanting to do a picture based on this particular song, which is originally in English, mind you, for a really long time now and yeah. The song 'tis "Red Stars" by The Birthday Massacre and I love it muchly. I translated one of the choruses using what I know so far from my Japanese classes, so some things, particularly the last verse, might be wrong. Anyhow, it's typed to be read up to down and right to left, if you didn't know. Too bad you can't see most of my usual meticulous shading this time, but I really like how the lighting effect from the star turned out.

Do you know Japanese? Can you translate that? orrr?

Zim-0f-Irk Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2008
I'm in Japanese 102, yep, and I could translate it back if you'd like, but the last verse is a little off... I don't know how to manage adjectives for verbs yet. I'll put the more literal Japanese translation I ended up with after the backslashes:

It's my red star. / My red star, it is.
Steal it. / Steal.
It's my red star. / My red star, it is.
I can't let go. / Cannot release.
It's my red star. / My red star, it is.
Conceal it. / Conceal.
It's my red star. / My red star, it is.
All I know. / All (I) understand.

Is that like a poem? I love poems... x3

I have a japanese friend, she's known as Psycho-Killer, but here on the DA she's called FuzzyWuzzums xD [link] She's one of my buddy's. ^-^

Yea, that was off-topic... xD

It's one of the two choruses in the song "Red Stars" by The Birthday Massacre. They have so much neat music, yes. :heart:

Ooooh, very wonderful, epecially with the lighting effects and the letters, although his head looks a little squarish (I mean, I know it's meant to be squarish but it looks super-squarish here).

Yeah, I see it too now that you mention it... Maybe I need to make his face longer to fix that?
