Have you guys heard of :iconashwara:? His stuff is truly inspirational and I highly recommend looking through his gallery. His backgrounds look so effortless. He's currently taking commissions, so help him out if you love his art!
I got a tumblr a while back, but never really knew what to do with it. Should it be a sketchblog? a photoblog? I've started posting my sketches and works in progress there, so you can follow me if you're interested! You can find me here:

jfong.tumblr.com/

Side note: My art style is changing right now, so you'll see a bunch of different things happening in the stuff I post.
It's been a while since I've posted here. Life has been busy and here is part of the reason why: I've been working on my webcomic. You can find it here:

Fail Friends

I originally didn't plan for my comics to be an ongoing thing, but after much encouragement, I decided to go for it. Please take a look if you have time. =)
I feel like drawing other peoples' characters, so I thought I'd do another sketch request!

If you would like a sketch, please leave a comment. It's okay if you've asked in the past!

I take commissions!
After getting a few responses, I decided to open up for commissions. I know I’m not that great, so I’m starting off pretty cheap!

For convenience, I’ll only be doing digital commissions. Traditional work takes me twice as long and costs more. However, if you really want something traditional, just note me and we can work something out. =)

So here’s the rundown:

Sketch - $10
Example: jfong.deviantart.com/art/Sketc… (I couldn’t find any examples of digital sketches, but this what it will pretty much look like minus the brown background)

Ink - $20
Example: jfong.deviantart.com/art/bound…

Color - $30
Example: jfong.deviantart.com/art/two-h…

Backgrounds - $5 (no extra charge for simple bgs)

Additional characters - $5 each

What I will draw
- Original characters (if possible, please provide a reference)
- Fanart

What I will not draw
- Furries
- Nudity/adult material

Payment
At the moment I accept Paypal only. I will need to receive payment before I start. This is to protect me. Don’t worry, I WILL draw your picture and won’t disappear with your money!
Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in getting commissions from me. If you're interested, please leave a comment. I'm just gauging how much interest is out there.

Thanks! =)
Side 7 - The Artist's Archive has launched version 4.0! This art site holds a special place in my heart because it was the first online art gallery I ever joined. Come to think of it, I've been a part of the site since 2000! I really recommend joining if you haven't already. The community is small and it's really easy to get to know people. Please take a look at it! It would be awesome if the community was in full swing again.
Hmm...it seems I haven't posted anything here since July. I haven't forgotten about DA and I do hope to start posting more in the near future. My lack of art is due to real life and its deadlines. =P

I plan to get one or two more cosplay photoshoots in with T shadoewhunter before 2009. She has some wicked stuff in the works, such as a Yuuko costume from xxxHolic, which is hands down my favorite cosplay of her. I think there's some Air Gear and Hitman Reborn cosplay coming up too. We'll see what we can do. The weather also plays a large factor in this. Haha.
Free sketches!

Summer is here, which means I have time to draw. If you would like a sketch, please comment with a subject of your choosing. =)

If you've gotten a sketch from me in the past, it's alright, you can ask again!

Had a fun time at AX. You can read the full report and see photos on my LJ here and here.

I saw a bunch of artists I liked there and ended up buying a print and a keychain. I also sold two pieces in the Art Show! Belldandy and Megatokyo sold. Whoever bought those, thank you so much! :)
I'm off to AX today. I'm not going to be in the Artist Alley, but I will have a few pieces in the Art Show. I'm excited to see all the awesome this year! :3 I'll be attending with T :iconshadoewhunter: who will be cosplaying about  5 or 6 people.
I have a bit of free time, so just for fun, comment with a subject for me to draw! Keep it clean, please.

Edit: Hey guys! My window of free time is gone and I will be MIA for the next few weeks. However, I'll get to the rest of the requests eventually! :)

Edit 2: Done! Thanks guys! This was fun. :3

For anyone who reads my journal, I invite you to join the Side 7 Secret Santa Picture Exchange! Side 7 is another art community where I post my stuff. If you've never done a Secret Santa pic exhange, it involves drawing the character of the person you get and whoever gets you will draw your character. It's loads of fun! Anyone is invited and I encourage you to join. :) You can sign up over here:

S7 Secret Santa

Sign ups end this weekend! Sorry for the last minute invitation. XP

I attended SMASH! yesterday, and I have to say, it was pretty awesome. It was cool to attend an anime con that focused mostly on the artists and cosplayers. I loved how there weren't lines for anything!
No one sent me a screenshot of the kiriban! I guess it was too weird. Haha.

I'm rewarding it to megumiichigo since she was the first one to point it out. Congrats! Please send me a note with what you would like me to draw. :)
