It's the holidays, so whoever you are, be it friend, stranger or hater alike, I hope you're spending it right.
2016 has been a bit of a blur. Kamen Rider Ghost turned into a surprisingly good show then slowly started to get a bit rough. I also got into My Hero Academia, which has been a real treat. And of course, I made Game Rider News to follow Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, which I must say has been a fun show so far. This year's been alright I guess, celebrity deaths and politics aside. I generally don't talk about that stuff - you hear enough about it on the news.
December did however start off on a sour note when a certain someone tried to arbitr
Was talking about this just now and thought it would be worth bringing up. No doubt I'll end up having to deny some requests as Ex-Aid goes on, but here we go~
With every new Kamen Rider series, many people wanna jump on the fancharacter train and have their ideas for collectibles come to life. Lockseeds and Eyecons are relatively easy to work with when you've got a template and everything, though in my experience they still take forever.
I'm just gonna put this out there as a kind warning: Custom Gashats are kind of a hefty thing to request compared to Lockseeds or Eyecons. You'd essentially be asking someone to do a full piece of artwork
So its that time of year where we welcome a new rider into our hearts, while we morn the loss of the one before, which maybe not the case this year. Poor Ghost.
But anyway, this year starts off with probably the most annoying all the gimmicky items, Ex-Aids's Gasshattos.
Why do I find them annoying...because their stickers are so complex artistic wise, it isnt something I can pump out in a couple of hours. These will take days to do right. Because of that, please don't expect me to pump out a set of like 30 or randomly take requests. It's just not happening.
Because of this fact, I've decided I want to do a much more contained project,
I apologize for not posting anything recently, especially the eyecons and parkas. Right now I am currently working on my first comic book that I'm trying to get done in a couple of months. Here is a quick peak of the cover
I considered a couple different things I could make in honor of him, but I decided some words in a journal would be more appropriate.
Yasushi Nirasawa was a designer for numerous Kamen Rider monsters. Apart from GARO and Gokaiger, the works everyone has been references are the Undead from Blade, the Worms from Kabuto, and the Imagin from Den-O. Though Blade was not the most memorable show for me, those last two are pretty important because they were my first two Rider shows.
Kabuto showed me that toku was more than the corniness of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and could be a genuinely good story of badass heroes VS scary monsters. And Den-O
So apparently, I am in a conspiracy with several other DA peeps on trying to ban someone. What an F'ing joke. It doesn't take a genius to see that a certain collection of artwork has physical evidence of other peoples work. For this conversation, my original eyecon templates and now apparently other peoples rider symbols and other related items, which were used to make other eyecons. When that person was confronted about it, he chose to ignore it and not accept it. Fine, but don't blame me if others come after you because they see their works being used and pretend that you did nothing wrong. You are not a victim when its your own stupi
Alright, so I've been doing some thinking. Yeah, much like how I wrote one of those "Leaving DA to post on Tumblr" journals, this is one of those "I'm not leaving after all" journals.
I chose to leave DeviantArt a lil while ago for what I realize now were probably not the best reasons. A recent incident (with a name I won't bring up) caused me to feel pretty shitty because it seemed like it was my fault and it gave me a bad name. In hindsight I should not have blamed myself and left over silly internet drama. If you know what's up then don't name names or perpetuate this - ignoring it is the only smart option. As for other things said about
Recently ~CometComics (https://www.deviantart.com/cometcomics) posted a journal about people taking his art and adding strokes to it to make it different can claim it to be theirs. I know recently I had to alert :iconMalunis: about someone posting a poster of his sprites and calling it their own.
Now many of you know me, I take pride of my work. I try to deliver to you all the best replication of a rider's collectible transformation items. I first started with Gaia Memories and now I'm up to Ghost's eyecons. I know a lot of people out there want to use what I made as a template, and usually im okay with it if you ask or if I flat out put it up for template on my page.
No, I'm not making that up.
So far, on my Birthday, I have been given birthday wishes from all of my friends including those on FaceBook ESPECIALLY from the man behind TyrannoRanger's helmet, Yuuta Mochizuki giving me birthday love when I wasn't looking.
Already, my birthday has been blessed by a god.
Speaking of ZyuRanger, this was supposed to come out on the 3rd but given uploading conflicts most likely, it popped onto the net this morning so I count it as a bit of Birthday Awesomeness.
Linkara set up a Patreon account because Blip was being shitty with not paying it's producers on time or not at all so, he set up a Patreon page to help
