I will be raising my prices EFFECTIVE JUNE 16, 2012 16:00(GMT+8:00)

The new prices will be:

:bulletred: Bust Shot: $7
:bulletred: Half-Body: $10
:bulletred: Full-Body: $12

:bulletred: Full-Body Chibi $2

:bulletred: Backgrounds will be additional $15


Since, I don't really have a job yet, commissioning is the only thing that is bringing me money. I'm pretty slow in making artworks as well so I'm afraid my old price won't really get me that much. I feel like I'll lose more than earn anything. I'm also aware that I'm somewhat finding a hard time looking for commissioners so I can't raise the price way too much.

Also, my artworks improved since I started this business (or at least I think so) that I think the new prices will still be reasonable.

So then, I hope you guys can bear and understand this decision that I made.




Back to normal... I guess...

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 9, 2012, 3:42 AM
  • Watching: Strawberry Panic


the disruption is over now so I guess I can go back to my normal work pace now provided I'm not gonna laze around... Yahh... it feels like a ton of weight has been released off my shoulders... and now, I can just sit back and relax and draw as always...

Yesterday was like one of the longest day of my life... I left the house at 6am and I returned at almost 11pm... I stayed at the studio for almost 13 hours which is really record-breaking in my part... and I have never drawn so much up to the point that my drawing hand started to hurt... I was never really the type of person who pushes her body to the limit. That is like the first time I really pushed myself really hard... I mean really really hard... but it was all worth it...

and I can't believe it's already 3months since I started training... time really sure flies fast... I'm not really sure what kind of future I will have when I finish the training cuz if the studio won't absorb me, I'll probably be worrying about my life again. Sometimes I wish the training won't stop... I really am having fun being with my friends there. It's really an amazing experience being there...

and OMG I'm being a fan of yuri once again... I had this when I was in highschool then I stopped when I went to college and now, it's slowly returning again... ugh... so anyway I'm watching a yuri anime called Strawberry Panic and Shizuma Hanazono caught my attention... LAWL... and for some reason the beautiful anime girls that always catch my attention are mostly lesbians... it's so insane...

So off to important stuffs...
I'll be doing a price hike soon so please stay tuned for updates...

One last thing... I'mma show ya a scrappy sketch that I did as a warm-up for the battle I had yesterday.
A goodluck, warm-up sketch by avimHarZ
I accidentally drew Avi smiling it almost like she wished me good luck yesterday...



An announcement...

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 5, 2012, 3:46 AM


Just when I thought things would be easier this week... I thought wrong...

on June 8th we will have this assessment thingy here on the animation studio I've been training on... So when we pass this, we will have this national certificate whachamacallit... we had a some kind of exercise like a mock exam thingy to practice what to do on Friday... and OMG I had to get up like 5pm cuz my house really is far from the studio... 2hours travel and not to mention I had to battle Rush Hour which is why I hate travelling at morning...

So anyway, I'm starting to have doubts in passing this cuz my clean-up skills is so friggin' bad. and not to mention I messed up my in-betweens as well due to my poor construction of the body... but I guess being pessimistic won't help me...

and the announcement that I'm about to mention is related to the story I just told you.

TO ALL MY COMMISSIONERS:

I have to apologize to you because I HAVE TO PUT OFF THE ARTWORKS YOU ARE ASKING ME TO DO IN ORDER FOR ME TO PRACTICE THE STUFFS FOR OUR ASSESSMENT THIS COMING FRIDAY.

I will resume doing the artworks on Saturday. I promise I will make it up to you.

I hope you guys could bear with me.


That's about my announcement... and I have to work like hell to get that certificate cuz it's probably gonna be my ticket to employment.



gonna be out this weekend...

yahh... I won't be able to go online this weekend... I'm kinda gonna tag along with the family to go on my dad's province starting tomorrow... so I guess it's a somewhat short vacation...

Unfortunately, there's no internet or any wifi so I am announcing my leave of absence to the DA world...

Hopefully, going on vacation would refresh my mind that is about to go insane.... LOL...

So the next time I'm probably online is on monday, 3pm(GMT +8:00) or earlier if I got the chance... so ciao for a while...

Yep... It's been one year since I made this account and a year and two days since I graduated from college and became a jobless sh*t in the society because I want to pursue my dream to become an artist/animator. My mom probably hates me for that though she doesn't say it. It's too bad I wasn't born like a typical Filipino kid whose dream is to only "graduate from college to help my family." In my opinion, you can't really call that a dream. It's more like a responsibility rather than a dream. You can call me a selfish spoiled brat, it doesn't matter. I don't want to live others lives. I just want to live mine. But of course, sooner or later, I have to face responsibility if things won't go right. But... I guess, I shouldn't worry about the future for now and focus on what is happening in the present. Anyway, I still have 1 more month until training ends so I'll just enjoy these stuffs.

So I'll proceed to the status part:

As of, 3:09PM (GMT + 8:00) the status of my DA are:

1783 pageviews
112 deviations
41 (or less) watchers (because I know some of you guys only put me in your watchlist but doesn't really bother checking if I have updates)
212 comments (mostly "thanks" and "you're welcome" :XD:)
3 art trades
3 commissioners
12 Llamas
20 DA points

So in just one year I went from "Extremely Pathetic" artist to "Just a Pathetic" artist. Hopefully, next year I'll go from "Just a Pathetic" artist to "Not so Pathetic" artist. LOL. I know the pageviews are really low, but that's probably because I only got fully active on DA on January or my artworks are really that bad that people doesn't notice it. I honestly don't mind having low pageviews but since I'm doing commissions it'll be like an advantage if people really look at my profile.

One of the reason's I wasn't active on those past months of 2011 is because, I don't have any confidence. I was like effin' scared of posting artworks back then because you know, people might say something bad about them and I also know that deep down my artworks from back then aren't really that presentable. Seriously, my artworks from last year was like drawn super bad and I saw so many artworks of people with same age or younger than me and they are like worlds apart. Now that one year has passed, I gained some confidence on my artworks although, the fear of people saying bad stuffs about my artwork still scares me.

When I look at some of my artworks from last year, and then look at some of my artworks now, I was like, look how far I have improved. Although, my works in the present time isn't the best you guys have seen. I mean, I honestly can't do digital painting one year ago (yeah I was just doing cel shading back then) and now, I can draw some stuffs I can't even draw back then.

Also, in the past year, I have met some artist people here in DA, Facebook and in the real world. I met people who taught me some art stuffs and helped me get to my skill level now. I have met people who dreams like I do. It's really an awesome experience. The art world is like the most awesome world!!!

So, allow me to thank you guys for being so nice to me. To all those who have added me in your watch list (even though you don't look at my updates), to all those who have fave my works and commented on it, to all those who have commissioned me and have given me some points and Llamas (although I still don't know the sense of Llamas here) A BIG ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU!!! and a salute to all of you!

So, to close these extremely long journal I'll put some thumbs of my latest artworks from last week here.

I was wondering whether or not I should trash or continue this "The Robonoid Fan" Manga I've been working on... check it here if you want: avimharz.deviantart.com/galler…

Well, the reason I'm thinking about it is because first, the my art style from back then sucks even more than my style now so, there would be a large difference (i think) if I continue this. Second, I actually don't have the time yet to continue this because of all the training and my endeavors in making money. Third, I kinda enjoy making illustrations more than making manga for now...

Another Idea is I'm gonna trash this and do a remake that suits my present skill or style. But I probably won't be doing it for a while...

I'll probably upload new artworks in a few days...



I forgot to put a title.

Alright, so I started sleeping at the new house on wednesday and having no internet makes me insane. Only 3days without going online and I'm already going nuts! I feel like I'm being disconnected from the world. Also, no internet means I can't advertise my artworks.

I went to the old house just to go online because our internet here isn't disconnected yet. But it won't be long until it is.

I want to have the internet installed on the new house as soon as possible but the network said that applications for the internet won't be processed after april 10. Then after that you still need to wait for few weeks just to have it installed. *sigh April will be awful...

So I'm thinking of a temporary solution to this problem and the only feasible is of course, renting a computer. There's a computer rental shop just literally beside our training studio so I'm thinking I'm going to training an hour early just to go online. That's gonna add to my everyday expenditures but I have to do that because I can't stay offline for a long time . I'll start this on monday.

I'm pretty lazy this week I only finished one artwork and one sketch.

Holy week is coming so hopefully I can make many artworks at that time... Until next time.

We are moving to a diffrent house tomorrow so things are sort of hectic recently but that doesn't mean I won't create artworks. It only means that I'll slow down even more hehehe. I'll probably gonna be offline for a few days until the internet is settled there. So I hope you could forgive me if I go into a hiatus.

So onto other stuffs. I kinda cleaned my bed for any junk stuffs. I saw my old artworks and man it sucks so bad. I was laughing to myself. Anyway if you want some laughs I'll let you read my blog post that has some of my ancient artworks. avimharz.blogspot.com/2012/03/…

I'm really gonna miss this house. I mean I lived here for over 2 decades. This is the place where I grew up and known myself. Even though it's full of holes and pests. I'm still gonna miss this. We have so many stuffs here. I saw the toys I had when I was a kid and I remembered my childhood. I want to preserve many stuffs here but the house that we'll be moving into are way too small so we have to give or throw or sell the other stuffs so goodbye my childhood toys. :( I'll preserve my old drawings even though it's awful.

I'll try to finish an artwork tonight and this will be the last artwork I'm gonna do while living under this roof that I have always known. I'll upload it asap so please check back later. :D

EDIT: the artwork that I'm talking about is finished and here it is. Angels Cry by avimHarZ

I've been so darn frustrated since wednesday. So I'm gonna tell a story here. On that, night, I was about to go and do my usual stuff, digital painting but then I realized, the pen on my tablet is gone. So I trashed the entire room but I couldn't find it and I know I left it on my computer table together with the tablet and laptop. I'm also aware that my mom and the cleaner she hired cleaned the house so one of the possibilities I thought is that it was thrown away. The weird thing is, all of the pens and pencils in the room are here and the tablet pen is the only one missing. I was so darn angry, I went offline yesterday to let off steam.

But I can't stand not doing anything in photoshop anymore so earlier this evening, I went to the mall and bought a wacom bamboo tablet (why settle for less although I prefer a cintiq but I can't afford it) (and karma would probably hit me when the missing pen reappered) and once again, I lost some good amount of cash.

It took me like 2hours just to set it up because photoshop can't detect the tablet so I have to reinstall the driver. So after that I did a nice quick test run and I put the WIP in my scraps:

WIP: Angel by avimHarZ

This is one of my characters, the black winged angel. I dunno if I'll finish it tomorrow because I probably might be doing a different artwork. (I missed drawing something that is my own. I've been doing model sheets of pebbles flintstone lately because that's what we've been doing in our training and I still can't get her right.)

I'm gonna paint like crazy later after I slept.

For those who don't know, summer here in the Philippines starts in March and ends in June.

It's been a while since I've done a journal... So uhh... So there had been a lot of happenings this recent days... nah... actually... I kinda got a nice scholarship animation training at Top Peg Animation Studios for 3 months. Yep, the training is absolutely free, nice isn't it? The training actually costs PHP 18,000 (approx. $418) But I can't rest easy just yet. Despite that there won't be any fees to pay, the distance between the studio and my house is so darn far. I'm like travelling on the other side of the region. (Travel time is approx. 2-3hours> So my transportation fee is pretty high... I don't have anyone i know near the area so I just have to bear with the distance.

So I still have some money issues. Which is why I HAVE TO PUSH MY COMMISSION BUSINESS THROUGH! I hope there will be nice people who will help me in my endeavours. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Uhh... Today was the first day of the training. I'm finishing a fanart now... Hopefully I can put it in my gallery this week. :aww:

Another thing... Yay! my DA page finally reached 1000views... It'll probably take another 9-10 months to have a thousand more LOL.

I should probably lower my prices to get some clients but hey, I'm pretty busy now so I'm not changing any prices YET.

So um... yep today, I did not open my photoshop at all. I don't know. I just don't feel like doing something digital today.

But art is not found in photoshop alone... no... no... no... but of course, you already know that. Instead of doing stuffs digitally, I picked up my pencil, grabbed some paper and drew some pretty pathetic sketches.

Couple of Sketches... by avimHarZ
just click on this for larger view.

I hope it's clear enough for you to see. hehehe...

Ok. I didn't draw this randomly, because these are some illustrations that will be used for my friend's book EXCEPT, the one on the leftmost side. Ironically though, the first three sketches are couples which is ironically, not intended for valentines day.

This is the one that is intended for valentines day. Of course, it involves my favorite Original Character, Avi.

Lacrimosa 2.0 sketch preview. by avimHarZ
but... I will not be able to finish this on Vday. :(

I could continue and rant about what my mum said earlier this morning but I'll just keep it myself. I do my best not to get affected but I have feelings too. So after the book is finished I'll really work hard to advertise my commission services so I can make some cash and be involved in the workforce somehow. Next question is how to do it which is I don't know the answer yet.

Anyway, this is it for this night. Thank you for reading my rant i mean my journal. :)

So my friend and I are going to publish a book next month. Well actually he's the writer and I'm just an illustrator. So henceforth, it's a joint work. It's actually self-publish because we'll be the one who will market it. It's not on bookstores. But he has a huge fanbase so there's no need to worry if the book will sell.

So yeah I'm pretty darn excited about this. At the same time, I'm pretty tensed. I'm pretty worried if my illustrations are good. I can't really judge well. But he said that it is good so I guess I have to believe him hahaha. :D

I was hoping that I could find my breakthrough on the book but, expectations may only lead to disappointment so come what may and I'll just go with the flow.

Anyway, I'll be doing another art trade and I'm going to finish it within the week. Yeah, I will.

I'm feeling pretty good right now. I made 2 artworks in a short time. (1 last night and 1 today) I'm like a shanghai roll again.

And my latest artwork adds up to my temporary happiness

omg I can't stop staring at this. I hope you can forgive me for my silliness hehehe.

So anyway, I really am having fun in doing artworks and there's nothing that I love than this. :)



I don't have a title for this.

I feel a wee bit better because I finished an artwork today and I found what the title of the background song in the Animax Asia commercial. I have to thank youtube for that. Listen it here. The melody gives me some hope.

But still, money brings misery to people. Oh well.

I actually just want to share the song with you so that's it and good night. :)

It's been sort of terrible this past few weeks. *sigh :( It's not really showing because I'm posting artworks quite a lot but yeah it's terrible not on drawing stuff but stuff that actually isn't related to this somehow.

First, well you must have known that I opened up my commission business but since then I haven't got a single client yet. I'm not saying it's easy. I am aware it's extremely hard. It's not like I'm famous and popular like my idol and my skill is world's apart from hers. Normally, I wouldn't mind taking long in finding my first commission but the fact that my father is retired now, let's just say... that money is stressing me out. I can't really rely on my siblings for that cuz they have their own families to worry. So as of now I am pressured by these things.

Second, yeah probably the only thing that can solve the money problem is to get a job. I thought about that. The thing is, I don't really want to work on something I don't want like in I.T. industry. Seriously, if I ever work on any corporate companies I might commit something really terrible to me or to others. I really show my attitude when I'm angry. So I tried to apply to some art and animation companies but unfortunately, they just ignore or reject me and I feel like a piece of sh*t in the society because I don't have any income. When my mother gets back here in the country I'll feel even bigger piece of sh*t than I feel now. (my mom is not really appreciative of me doing art) I'm pretty much screwed.

So, in order to drown my sorrowness(?) away, I draw!

Which brings me to the third, I am currently working on an artwork now. I'll probably finish it tomorrow night if things go well because my computer is screwing me up as well. I don't know what's going on (it's pretty pathetic really despite the fact that I graduated from a computer course), it's the first time I encountered this stuff. So the only programs that are open are my browser, explorer and Photoshop. (i'm making youtube my mp3 player.) Then suddenly, the youtube and the other tabs in my browser crash then Photoshop begins to malfunction. (When I try to save it says "Cannot save because of disk error" and at times, when I'm just using the brush tool, it's saying "Could not perform brush tool because scratch disk are full" but it's absolutely impossible because I have tons of space in my hard drive.) And to that, I restart my PC and waste so many precious time.

So all in all, my life screws everywhere.

I apologize for my insanely long rant because I just need to get this off my chest. I don't really have people to talk to about this and this silly idiot is just gonna post this insane rant that will be seen by some deviantart people even though she should really keep her problems to herself.

Let's look on the bright side, I have many pageviews yesterday and today. I don't know what happened. Yesterday I had 73 pageviews which is an all-time high and today I have 54. So my overall pageviews boosted from 400-something to 600+ Which is pretty nice. I'm closing in on 1000.

I'm currently listening to Invincible by Machine Gun Kelly. I first heard it when I watched a WWE video about John Cena and the song is pretty nice so I looked it up.

I'm pretty sleepy now so I'm gonna stop this silliness. I'm gonna draw and paint tomorrow and forever. Once again, I apologize for all my ranting.

Let's play with skins... :)

So let's use this free one day premium membership opportunity to edit the journal skins... :3
   
I picked up some bunches of old artworks of mine to use in this journal and obviously it's my main character, Avista.

I'll make this senseless journal long and long so that her face can be seen... LOL...

So I found this nice site to create the CSS of this skin www.icyworlds.net/about/css

I'm pretty much pathetic cuz i don't have the patience to study or memorize the codes in CSS and I used to be a programmer. Unbelievable, huh? :P

So it's so darn cute and I'm having fun writing randomness in this just to make it longer.

So the journal's background is entitled, Lacrimosa. fav.me/d3gzvdd I created this for valentines day last year so It's going to be it's birthday soon. This artwork is my first ever decent digital painting. Yeah, I'm still pretty new to digital painting back then. My skills grew from then (or at least I think so... :P )

Wow! when I look at this in the preview, it looks really, really nice! :D oh happiness!!!

Okay i think this is long enough... :D I might do a Lacrimosa 2.0 for february... I'm still thinking of a nice concept... and I'm gonna apply this skin in all my past journals except the ones that have images... yahh!!! :D




probably the reason why most people who don't know me doesn't approach me... LOL... :P
