Hi y’all! I am finally open for art commissions (since my finances don’t look too good). As not to overwork myself, I’ll start out doing 3 commissions at a time. If the demand is high, I might upgrade to 5 slots. So hurry if you would like one. 


3 Slots Open:

1.

2.

3.


How does this work ?

After reading the Rules further down below, you send an email to malta_shop(at)hotmail.com with the subject Art Commission

In the email please state the following:

  • what kind of commission you would like 
  • how many characters you want me to draw 
  • what poses, emotions, etc they should have 

Also please provide clear, coloured references of your characters. 

Info on Sketch Commissions 

These kind of commission do NOT have a preview sketch option. This means that after sending me the commission email, I’ll be sending you a PayPal Invoice Bill in the next following days. Once the Full Price is paid, I’ll start the commission. Therefore it is vital that you give clear instructions on how it should look like. (ex. sitting with face turned to the left)

Info on Inked and Flat Colours Commissions

After sending the commission email, you’ll receive a preview sketch in the following days. When you receive this preview, you may ask for changes to be made. Once the final sketch preview is given the go ahead, no more changes can be made. At this point a PayPal Invoice Bill will be sent. After paying the Full Price, I’ll work continue working on the commission and finish it. 

NOTE: All commissions, depending on the level of details and complexity, will take rough between a week’s and a month’s time. If any delays arise, the customer will be immediately noticed and a new deadline is discussed. Thank you for understanding.


!!!! Rules !!!!

  • Payments are to be made through PayPal only 
  • I will NOT draw any NSFW, excessive violence, hate against anyone, vehicles or animals
  • My main drawing style is cartoon (as shown above). Please keep that in mind. However I will not shy away from more realistic styles. Just be aware that they might not look as good. 
  • All commissions are going to be posted on my social medias (DeviantArtInstagramTumblrFacebook,  Mastodon.ARTPatreon, Ko-fi). If you wish that I do not post your commission publicly, please state that in the Commission Email!
  • All commissions are going to be signed and will have a small watermark
  • The finished commission will be send via email as a JPEG, PNG or PDF
  • If you would like to share your commission on the internet, be sure to credit me or reblog/share/toot one of my posts showing your commission 
  • There are NO Refunds 
  • No changes can be made once the commission is completed 

If any questions arise, do not hesitate to message me here on Tumblr or sending me an email. 

Thank you so much for reading <3

As some of you might already know, I have started a webcomic series (way back in December) about Nero's life, called Nero in da Domus. It's uploads every Wednesday on Tapastic and since last week, Nero has his own Facebook page

I am amazed by the amounts of interest coming from you guys and also the support by simply just reading/sharing/liking the comics. :heart: 

As a small thank you, I am happy to announce a little surprise for July. In the coming weeks little teasers might pop up on the Facebook page and on DeviantArt (I have not forgotten you, my dear watchers). It will be something totally new for me and I hope you'll all enjoy it. 

That's all for now. Thank you for reading this little update of mine and I wish you all a lovely day/night.

So ! I did it. :l 

Go check it out and tell me what you think.

The comics are a bit wonky in the beginning but it gets better by strip 3. I promise. :) 

There will be also a folder here on Da, where I will occasionally post some sketches or other artworks related to the series, so keep a look out for them. 

Enjoy !

Hey Guys/Girls, 

It's... been a while. I hope you are all doing well. Life was exciting the last couple of months. I finished my 2nd Semester, passed all my exams, went on a holiday to Sweden, went back home to visit my family, hanged out with friends, decided to do some serious changes and such. All in all I have been quite busy... except when it comes to art. 

Yeah I have taken a serious drop back when it comes to drawing. I have been sketching and stuff, though I never felt like showing them off any more. I guess I don't find as important as I did when I started. I don't want to upload everything I do. It's not worth it. Nothing looks satisfying enough. But hey! I guess it's the artistic process. 

I've been tossing the idea around of uploading a comic I have been working on the last half a year. I have been thinking of uploading it on Tapastic, but I am not sure. What do you think ? Should I give it a try ? 
  • Listening to: Take me out - Franz Ferdinand

Happy Easter Malta by Blue-Aqua-san95

Happy Easter dear watchers !! 
And to those who don't celebrate Easter, I hope you have a great day !!

I thought I use the occasion to give a little update on what I plan on doing the coming weeks. 

- Comics 


Alas My strange Friend is coming to an end with only a couple of pages left, I am afraid. Will there be a sequel ? Only time can tell. Even though I have an idea to which direction the story should be heading, I am not able to do it now. I have learned quite a few things in making this comic and had to overcome several hindrances, such as finding time to draw. My Studies require a great deal of my free time, so it was difficult to keep the pages piling up so I could upload them on a later date.

In order not to feel all that pressure again, I decided to go a step back and start a new series. Some of might have noticed a new folder in my gallery named The Excavation. It's going to be a good old strips series, just like the Malta & co series, just less random and with small arcs stories. I am not entirely sure when I am going to start with the uploads but be assured, it will begin after My strange friend is finished. I hope you guys are excited about it as much as I am. :D 

- Commissions, Art trades and such


Commissions will be closed until further notice.  
Art Trades are also closed for the time being, though I might open from time to time, depending on how busy I am. 

That should be all for now. :) 

Have a great day and take care !!

The Shadow man - Line up by Blue-Aqua-san95

 
  • Listening to: Sing - Ed Sheeran
  • Reading: Butrint - History,Monuments and Museum
Hi everybody ! 

I hope you're all doing fine and having a grand time :D I know I am cause I am literally trying to enjoy my last week before Uni starts. YAY !! Anyways I wanted to write a quick journal about what I am planning on doing and HOPEFULLY still be doing during the course of Uni. 

Point 1: Continue to write Journey
<da:thumb id="482361053"/>
It's a story I really wish to finish without being completely crap. I am not used to write down stories and I am having trouble trying to come up with how the story should advance and such. Also I need motivation for it, which isn't a regular thing. However I am not giving this one up just yet, so keep a look out for it. So the schedule for this time will be irregular. 

Point 2: The Shadow man - My strange friend Comic
My strange friend - Page 1 by Blue-Aqua-san95
This is something completely new as I started this just a few days ago. I felt like it was time that I start developing my comic skills. Also I just really wanted to draw a comic again. This time I'll be moving from just random strips though. No, I wanted a comic with an actual story to it. If it will be a long or short one, I am not sure yet. I do have a general idea of where the story should go and how it is focused. A little strange might be that one of the main characters won't speak English (most likely) during the entire story, so that should be interesting.

Here I would like to ask you my watchers, if I should persuade this goal or not bother. Do you want to read this comic ? If yes than I need your help. I have this tendency of losing interest or focus on what I do after a while. It happened with literally every project I have started. I don't know how I can prevent this from happening, so I am asking you guys. What can I do ? I really want to finish this comic ! Tips on how the story is doing or improvements on the art are always welcomed

The schedule of the comic will be once a week, starting from next week. On which day... I haven't decided that yet. Probably weekends though. 

Point 3: Commissions are OPEN 

I am taking commissions again. Both Paypal and Points. Currently I am offering Sketches for 5 Euros/6$/600 :points: and Simple Background (Digital) one Character for the price of 7 Euro / 9.10 $ / 910 :points: . I can only take 5 commissions at once, so I don't stress myself out (which means you get better results). The reason it is open again is because I am kinda running a bit short on pocket money and earning a bit on the sideline can't harm. Don't worry I still have enough money to live. It's just that I don't have the money to go out to the cinema or eat out with friends and such, which would be nice every now and then. Anyways it's up to you, if you feel like a commission or not.

Heeeey guys !!! 

I am terrible sorry for the lack of updates. Since I have finished my Uni Course, I have been (unusually) busy. So a general summary of what I did...
  • I passed all my examinations for Uni 
  • I met (and still meet) some classmates of mine
  • Celebrated our FIFA World cup victory !! 
  • I started learning Danish 
  • I am teaching Maltese
  • I travelled to Amsterdam as a weekend break
  • I hosted a party 
 If you think that's a lot, there's more. Namely things I have yet to do !
  • Get accepted at Uni
  • Travel to Berlin 
  • Guide my relatives through Hamburg
  • Travel to Copenhagen 
  • Squeeze my budget so I don't have to work :XD: 
Yeah, so I still will be pretty busy. Please don't worry for I haven't forgotten about you guys. I really want to continue the comic "Two idiots in a forest". The only issue is that I can't scan the pages because when I scan the pages, my sketch book casts a black shadow over half of the page. :( So I am going to have to redraw them. It might take a while though due to my tight schedule but one day I will be able to finish it !! 

Please have patience with me for the time being ! Thank you and I hope you guys are having a great time. :)

3. My creations were all made up in dreams or by pure coincident. Mathias for example was in fact just some random guy who popped up in my dreams. Llama on the other was created during my English exam. 
4. I suck at languages. Even though I have 3 mother languages, I haven't completely mastered one of them.

◢Q&A Here

I dunno. Maybe the fact I am there when one needs a good listener ? Though I suck at giving advice.

The fact none of my guinea pigs have died yet. I am not a complete failure ! :dummy:

My Encyclopedia for Kids in MALTESE !! YEAH !!! I usually re-read the Inca pages. :iconyeahplz:

Water-bending so I can force back my tears... Not a skill ? Oh then the skill of drawing whatever I want without failing. What, that doesn't count either !!??

Romantic, Fantasy but not too cliche. The more original, the better.

Hi guys and girls,

First of all thank you for all your "Get well soon" wishes and tips in my last journal. I am feeling much better now and I hope it stays so.

I have started Uni now so I guess you guys know what it means... Yup even less art from my side. Of course I will try to doodle around, however with only 15 minutes breaks and arriving very late home it's near to impossible to do much. I mustn't forget my two guinea pigs, who need loads of love and discipline ! Sigh... I already miss drawing.

So I apolpgise in advance for all the probably sketches and linearts I will be uploading. In my holidays I might colour some so there's something to look forward to, right ? Unless of course I have projects to do... AAAARRRRGGGHHHH !!!

Hi guys and gals ! How are you all doing ? I hope you're all fine and healthy.

I am afraid that can't say so myself. I have been sick for over a week now. I thought it's nothing, just a common cold. Now I don't even think it's a cold anymore. I have been coughing non stop since yesterday night at around 10pm and it hasn't stopped. I couldn't sleep properly, due to all the coughing and rib pain so now I am all tired out. I am guessing that I am coughing out the slime from my lungs but it's not the typical green-yellowish as one would expect after having a cold. It's transperant with some white foam. I don't have a sore throat neither which is peculiar. However I have this very uncomforatble feeling in a specific side of my throat, which makes me cough everytime I breath in or drink something. I must say though that it had stopped today for 3 hours (early afternoon), but it had just started again.     

I didn't want to bore you guys with my problems but I am not sure if this a case where I better should get myself checked by a doctor. And if not what can I do to make myself stop coughing ? I need a speedy recovery since this monday I will have my first day at Uni and I do not wish to cough through all the classes. 

Any sugguestions ?

PS. Also why do I have over 88 pageviews today ?? Did something happen ??

Since a good friend of mine sugguested to take a break from my main story/OCs and draw some Fanart, I thought I should do some cheering up to you guys too. So I'll be taking requests (unlimited for the time being). One request per deviant.

The requests will be either inked sketches or watercoloured. If you're super lucky it might be digitally coloured.

So leave a comment below stating what you would like me to draw (max. characters 3) and I will give it a shot. :D

Hi guys,

I hope you are all doing well. It's been a while since I have written to you all. Sorry about that. Mainly that is because I have nothing interesting happening in my life. Just occasional disappointments and an alarming lack of social contact. But I won't bother you guys with that.

I just wanted to inform you guys that there will most likely won't be any upload for the next few days. Not that I was scheduling regualrly. It's just going to be a game of waiting and patience. I apolgise about that but I am afraid that lately I am bit of a dump, you know.

I guess I fell into "Nothing seems right what I do" phase, hence why I am not posting any drawings. Don't get me wrong. I haven't given up on myself but nothing I draw seem right or satisfies me. Something is always off and I don't know why. I know that I am not (and won't be) an amazing super skilled artist, but it still really bugs me. As if something is missing but I don't know what. If you're confused, then I guess that makes two.

Enough of that. I hope you're enjoying the Winter Olympics. Something that has put me somewhat off is that Malta is taking part this year. I mean a country with literally no experience with such sport should not take part. And what's worse! The person who is playing for Malta is not even Maltese or lives there. Just because her grandfather was a maltese, doesn't allow her to play, right ? No ?

On a happy tone, Happy Valentine's day everybody. I hope they do the card thing like last year again. :D
