Idk if anybody will read that journal but I had to express my feelings somehow.

A month ago I joined Amino, expecting nothing great and the same anonymous popularity I have here on DeviantART. I was shocked to find out that many actually like my style and art, I befriended even a few of my followers which is a great feeling! Getting so much feedback and love... Of course I got acquainted with people on DA but sadly did I encounter unpleasant ones, too. I never really feel like a part of the community on DA (probably because I'm too antisocial) or not fitting the image of the artists I watch or see. Getting visibility is a hard thing for an introvert and having so many bad experiences in real life doesn't make it easier. So I'm pretty negative to begin with. Yet there is Amino - great community, people and fandoms. I don't advertise anything but rather speak about my experiences. I never imagined to get 100+ Followers nor 30+ likes for my art. On YouTube you may find these cases with artists that clashed with other users but the case rarely appeared and often you can simply block or report them. Friends I made encourage me and I happily draw for the people than the request I do. One even asked me for help in her Visual Novel to draw the CGs and I nearly cried because I was so happy :;(∩´﹏`∩);:
And many see the love and hard work I put into my drawings as well as the progress I make. I even have some special artwork and WiP that I don't show on DA because I know that they would drown in the waves of uploads. If I could I would like all the art of the people I follow and encourage me but that would take more than a week and I have bad connection to begin with.

So here am I gaining a little confidence and feel the sensation of accomplishment resting on my mind.
And yeah, I won't be doing requests for a while.

Main [Re]Quest will be finished in order. Everything else is up to my mood and quickness. Might do OCs faster…

That's right: A Quest for Request!

While I closed Requests, I always feel used when suddenly new people show up (sorry if I'm attacking anybody but looking up the activity on my page is always funny) or old ones remember my existence (no offense I just wished some of you were more active even just a little like in a while). And a quick thank you for those who like my works and support me by doing so.

While a watch is good, I'm bothered that people won't really look into my art and like it. I really need feedback and encouragement and seeing a number of watchers who aren't even looking at my investment, my development and hours of sleepless nights is depressing and will lead eventually to opening requests only to watchers who are active and follow rules stated in my biography. The reason why it's so long is sadly because of that experience and feelings.

In my free time I like to solve puzzles, play RPGs and watch documentaries about forensic when I'm not drawing. And I hate injustice and as well as betrayal. Actually I hate too many things which isn't good for my mind and my health. _: (´ཀ`」 ∠):

So I decided to make something like a raffle but not exact one to one since giving people only a slim chance of survival is kinda unfair and mostly luck-based. ε-(≡ Δ ≡💧)

For not RPG-Lovers under you:

A Quest is a task to fulfill to get a item or progress in the story. In my case the item is a free piece of art, a request. Like a raffle you have to to do a list of things to get in a tombola but I won't use one. I'll give tasks and a "test", an array of questions. The more you do, the higher your chance is. The three best will get the prices and it's a fun way to get to know me (I believe (´ . .̫ . `) ). You can send in a note or comment below (though commenting will probably lead others to copy you).

And proper grammar & spelling, please!
(Says the one who isn't perfect herself (´・ω・`) )

(Please read my rules in the biography beforehand! The condition is that you must be a watcher!)

1. Follow me on Instagram or Amino (Arts and OCs/ Art / Anime Art) or like at least 3 pictures on both (unless I don't have 3 to show (๑¯ω¯๑)) (+5 and in both cases +8)

2. On Pinterest find my favourite board and name it. (+1) (It's too easy when you've read my bio.)

3. My first request was by who? (+1)

4. My first upload was when? (Sorry for looking at my early abominations : ( ;´꒳`; ): ) (+3)

5. Like a few pics here on my dA. (+2) Give a explanation to why you like it (and please not the standardized texts from a robot) in the comments of one of the liked pic, doesn't matter which one. (+3)

6. Be actually interested in me (+100) [JK… Or not? ٩(•౪•٩)三]

7. Matthew is a character from…? (+1)

8. Which Manga do I like the most? (+1)

9. Which piece I believe has the best cell shading so far? (+2)

10. Use conditioner before shampoo (or tell me if you did already). I really want to know what happens. (+10)

11. Ever tried mochi? (Answering +1)

12. At what part in the process of a work do I struggle most? (+1)

13. On YouTube look up "Otaku Lyrics" and tell me where that part comes from: "Throw the towel to the emo…" (+5)

You can achieve up to 140 points and the highest three will fill the next requests slots.

Like if you got 138 points and somebody in second place has 137 points, your request is 1st place and will be finished first.

If a draw comes out I'll sort by date and the request by the difficulty, meaning a bust shot/head shot will be finished easier than a whole character (with complex design) or multiple in one picture. (Yeah, I have a lot of free time to actually calculate and research everything…)


I might do that more often as a way to make  people who want free art work hard. My art isn't superior but I try my best and every appreciation is welcome so people who show up and then never come back will sweat and rage. ヾ(¯∇ ̄๑)


I'll announce the winners in the next journal and deadline is two weeks from now:
29. June - 13. July

That's enough time for everybody to investigate! ( ・ิω・ิ)

(And for me to finish the other requests… (๑¯ω¯๑) )
Welp… That was fast.

The order is:

M0RTY-SMITH (previous journals)

Sorry for the others.  (๑•́ ₃ •̀๑)
After sorting out some issues I'm open to requests again. ฅ(♡ơ ₃ơ)ฅ

I decided to dedicate my vacation more to my own art and limit my slots to 3 (a few exceptions can be made if they are simple). Anyone not following the guidelines stated in my biography will be ignored and in case of nagging/begging/pressuring etc. blocked without remorse. If you're not considered a friend then don't expect gifts.

Please send me notes for any questions that my request section doesn't answer (not through comments) and everything around that.

After arriving home from the trip I caught a cold. In summer. Didn't stop me to work on the requests (after getting the fever a little down) and somehow I didn't forget all the techniques but rather evolved (somehow?).

The finishing results:

This weekend probably:
Elvina-EXE

Next week (or partly this weekend):
M0RTY-SMITH
RedWesternRanger

Perhaps I will upload a picture of the other reason I couldn't work on requests. (It was a statue for an UNESCO project.)
As title states it I've met with a busier schedule after my exams than expected, explaining why I didn't publish anything for a week. Next week I won't have access to my laptop and can't work on the requests - I may finish the next one tomorrow or post a WIP, I can't guarantee neither though. Right now the list follows:

SuperSupper111 (WIP)
Elvina-EXE (WIP)
M0RTY-SMITH (Rough Sketch)
RedWesternRanger
I will close the slots for now since I noticed I couldn't catch up with the time (I'm soooooo slooooow (۳ ˚▿˚)۳) and didn't want people to ask me when theirs will be finished.

From now on I'll take up to six requests (occasionally two more when I have an overload of free time) and then close until I finished 4 of them. I'll update the list of ongoing requests weekly (if I don't forget).

Right now the order of requester completion is:

xEyelessMikex
Battle-Prime
SuperSupper111
Elvina-EXE
M0RTY-SMITH
RexWesternRanger

So if you are wondering when your request will be finished, check the journals from today on. I will also explain reasons should my progress be really slow.
