Start to 2013: Cons/Cosplay/Other updatesWhat up guys. Finally sunk into me that it's 2013: brand new year, full of stuff to do. I have no doubt that it's gonna fly by before I know it so I wanted to update with some stuff that's been going on:
1. Kicked off the year with MelCosPho 13. Not gonna lie, it was probably one of the biggest gatherings of cosplayers in Melbourne since probably the last convention (Armageddon). Was insane as to how many people showed up, and for a social chameleon such as myself it was overwhelming not recognizing over 80% of the people there.
I used the meet to debut my first cosplay of the year: Afro Samurai! (Mugshot can be seen here -----> http://shinyspikes.deviantart.com/#/d5reqe8 ) It was actually supposed to be my first ever cosplay back at Armageddon 2011 and I was going to make it out of my old Taekwondo uniform (thank god I didn't omg). I had a lot of fun making a cosplay from scratch, thank you to :icondarcywilliam: for giving me the sword to modify and helping me weather the headband and

Saw lots of faces which was awesome! Everyone definitely brought their A-game and we had so much fun
On the Sunday we organized a shoot with my other DOA group members, Karine as Ayane, Kien as Hayate and Claire as Kasumi!

Carciphona volume 1 sold out not long ago, and I’ve finally restocked those this week!Shipping prices lowered as promised in the past month!
I’ve been working on figuring out a new shipping company last month, and I am ready (I think LOL MAYBE) to switch over! Shipping has always been the bane of my shop because I’m in Canada. I’ve got tons of questions about it in the past year that range from confused to outraged. But it’s in my best interest to find ways to lower shipping prices, because while some people are in such disbelief that Canadian shipping can be that bad (it can) might even think that I bloat shipping prices to make more money, high shipping costs actually makes me lose business because SURPRISE, no one wants to buy overpriced things.
The new company ships through USPS which means I can lower shipping prices to USA by as much as 70%

Merry Xmas!Just wishing you all aMore Like This
Was planning on doing a Christmas artwork to surprise everyone, but schedule just didn't allow it in the end.
Might still get it done in the following week though, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, get in the Xmas spirit with some of my older Xmas/winter themed works!
:: Commissions - closed ::Hello!More Like This
Commissions are closed, thank you!
Here is my commission info with examples and prices.
Please before commissioning me be sure to read all info here, thank you ^^
This are basic prices, because if there will be many details price will be higher.
Portrait $60 || Halfbody $85-$100 || Knee-up/Full body - $120-$150 (simple bg included)
(CLOSED) AUCTION - Sketch ''Shy Kitty''Here's the third pencil sketch auction. If you missed the previous ones, the idea here is that I'm selling original physical copies of some of the pencil sketches I did earlier this year. This time it's a sexy catgirl in bed. See below for details on the item, links to samples, and instructions on how to bid! This auction is open for roughly 6 days, ending on 25th.More Like This
BONUS FOR PARTICIPATING:
Everyone who bids on a sketch auction during December will participate in a raffle I'll hold at the end of the year. The randomly-drawn winner of the raffle will receive at least two items, which can be either original sketches/doodles or leftover prints (probably one of each!). Your bid doesn't need to win an auction in order to participate in the raffle! Bidding in each auction earns you an additional raffle ticket (but only one per auction item!). So go ahead, up that bid. Even if you don't win the auction, you might win the raffle.

(CLOSED) - AUCTION - ''Beach Pranks FTW''So, I figured it's a shame having the pencil works I did earlier this year just gathering dust (well, not literally, since they're still in the sketchbook, but I'm sure you get the idea), so I figured I'd sell off some of them. For how much? I dunno! You tell me! So, let's try an auction! I'll start off with the older ones and if this goes well, then I'll move on to the newer ones! I'll probably post some promotions and reminders about these auctions again, so bear with this campaign bombing your updates every now and then.More Like This

Little news and plans for the end of the year.Hey everyone!More Like This
I hope you're having a nice day.
Here are some news about...Pretty much everything
My 2014 fall is pretty cool as I've tons of things to do and projects that makes me very happy ♥
As you can see I've a new set on Zivity, called "The Chaman Kid", shot by the wonderful River.
I'm also happy that my first 100% independant set is available! I modeled, shot and edit it!
I'm happy with its success and consider shooting more like this one. Suggestions are welcome!
As for cosplay, I'm happy I started my 100 themes challenge and can't wait to do more!
I also spent some time drawing and can't wait to show you what I'm currently working on!
And yeah, I took some photos at the Zombie Walk in Paris too. You
My con season isn't over yet O_O. I needs Money. Well Luis got us two tables. One at Sac Con in December. And at The Lodi Grape Con in Feburary.More Like This
What sucks is that both Luis and I are struggling as far as cash is concerned. I got some projects I'm working on and would like them to get colored. Luis is in super cheap mode so he doesn't want to shell out a lot of money for color work. Granted I could just let him color my projects .Its just he is not consistent or as good as the other people with commission for color work. Still he is an option.
I am opening up my buy 2 get 1 free sketch and commission drive. It would really help me out if you guys and gals would take advantage of this. Here is recap of of the prices and options. If you are a regular customer or have commissioned me before the price increase.I will only charge you the previous prices.
* 1 character pencil sketch.Pick a character and whether they are nude are not.
* Nude is fine.
*Content R rated or lower
* Character pose,look, is up
Is it Me? Or is Deviantart Dying?I was chatting to some art/writing friends online, and it seemed to be something we agreed upon.More Like This
Deviantart seems kinda dead, or like it's dying or something. Or is that just for me ( and the people I've spoken to?). Honestly, I think a lot of the changes they made are responsible.
Disclaimer (because I always need one for some reason). This is my journal. It is my opinion. If you have a different opinion I'd love to hear it. I'm not out to offend anyone (kind of sadly hilarious I have to post these more and more lol ).
I've been here a long time. Well, I suppose I wasn't active for many years. I lived in Japan and Deviantart has no presence there. But then 3.5 years ago I decided to teach myself to paint, so I suddenly became active.
I think a lot of the recent Site Updates to Deviantart have really made things hard for those of us who are serious about artwork ( or maybe everyone?). Usually, it was fairly standard that when you post a new
