How's everyone doing? sorry for not being so active on deviantart. I'm a bit more active on social media so you can find me on twitter,facebook and tumblr under my DA handle.

I've been busy with work and other endeavors, I recently got my degree and i'm excited about the new things I can do with it ^^ I'm also looking into dipping my toes in new projects and ideas, I just need some time (and money) to get to that. Life has been pretty busy on all sorts of aspects but it's been fun so far. I got a backlog of stuff to upload in here so I'll get to that. Just in case, I usually upload WIPs and finished drawings on my patreon, so if you want to see that, psd files to see how I did things and help support me, you can find my patreon link here:   www.patreon.com/jruva

Love you all, and thanks for sticking around, see you :P

Just thought I'd give an update on my life in here given I've been absent as usual. First of all thanks for the watches, comments,views and commissions I get, it means a lot to me to see people enjoy my art :) .

I'm close to finishing an animated short film i've been doing with a friend. I also had to move out my apartment and landed a quick job as a graphic designer. Not sure how long it's gonna last but I love these two jobs. 

I've been also having more laptop problems, because acer is a horrible, horrible brand. I haven't really updated my Patreon because of it, but to make for it, I want to participate on Inktober and practice inking and offer cool drawings. I'm gonna be uploading inktober drawings in batches of 5, so stay tuned for that. I've also been thinking of doing digital drawing classes or uploading resources to gumroad for a small fee to help people and etc, just kinda lost on the "how" and "what". Oh well, I guess I'll solve it eventually.

And well, I guess that's it as usual. You can follow my art on facebook and tumblr and etc, the links are on my profile. c ya around xoxo
Patreon Launch by Jruva



I recently opened a Patreon :D You donate a set amount of money per drawing and I offer you a reward as thanks. There's more info on my patreon about how it works and what I can offer, so please check it out here ! Any amount of money is cool , even if it's $1. Help me spread the word and I hope you can become a patron <3
Hey guys! just thought I'd let you know I made a facebook page some time ago and forgot to promo it here lol. I'll be trying to update my facebook page with the drawngs I usually upload here, as well as some ocassional speedpaint or any other relevant info about my projects or carreer.

So here it is. Like the page and get updates in there and stuff :P much appreciated. Thanks!
Well I'm not much of putting up pictures of personal going ons and stuff, but basically yesterday I went on a short notice to a con since apparently one of my favorite composers, Michiru Yamane, was on town and was gonna do a concert. She was lovely and I still can't believe I met her <3 here's me and her oh snap!

and I'm mostly uploading this journal because there was a wacom booth on the con and I lurked around there waiting to draw, they had a cintiq there and I just felt the need to draw something right there, and I wanted to showcase it here.

I forgot to take a full on pic of the cintiq but the setup was basically a lap on my side, cintiq up front and this huge-ass screen showcasing the drawing process for everyone to see so I had a lot of people near me lol. I wish I could have brought an usb drive to save the picture, but hopefully the booth will upload the picture to their facebook page soon so I can post it here. I am now more convinced about getting a cintiq now after the results I got for this drawing and the response I got in general (specially since I drew this in like hour and a half and everyone including the booth was surprised apparently?) so please give me your money via commissions or something xoxo thanks

but yeah, hopefully I'll be able to get a cintiq one of these days. Yesterday was super fun and meeting michiru yamane was amazing she's such a sweetheart! She played a concert for everyone and closed by playing jingle bells I love her!

    I never would have known all the progress I have made in these years, all the friends I would have make, or where I would be right now, it's been truly an odyssey for me. I'm not sure what else to say really, thanks to those who have stuck with me since the beginning and to the new ones too! Here's for another 10 years on this site :D

    Wall Of Shame by Jruva
    Hey people! I recently won a contest from OC ReMix, a site dedicated to some cool videogame music covers and remixes. Their newest album's cover art, Portrait of a Plumber, was done by yours truly. It also features art by other cool artists as promo art in it, along with some superb Super Mario 64 remixed songs and they all sound hella cool. Check it out here:

    The album will release this month and you can download it for free, so be sure to check it out :D ! I'll put the link here once it's up.

    ---------------------

    ---------------------

    :bulletred: Contacting/Payment:


    I only accept Paypal!  If you are in Mexico, I can accept bank deposit. Proof of the deposit or paypal shall be confirmed before starting a commission.   To ask for a commission, simply send me either an  e-mail to ruvology (at) gmail.com or a note/MP via deviantart or any of my other social media.(please do not send paypal money to the email adress listed above, I will provide you with the paypal adress once the commission has been agreed on)



    In this e-mail, please specify everything about your commission, with info such as:
    • type of commission (sketch, cg, number of characters, bust up/half body, etc)
    • specific backgrounds (if any)
    • information about commission (character info, reference, etc . Please keep it short and sweet, anything to give me a basic idea of how the character is or how they look is good. Short sentences are preferred over paragraphs of information)
    • use for commission (personal or commercial)
    Or anything really, just as long as it tells me what you want me to draw and all the things you think I need to work on the commission. You can be formal or casual on the mail, your choice :P 

    I will reply with costs and anything else you would like to discuss. That is, ideas, possibilities, the cost itself, etc.  After both parties agree on what the commission will be and the payment, I'll link you to my paypal adress . More of this below. Please note I may take a while to finish a commission depending on other responsibilities at hand, so your patience is greatly appreciated! I will try to finish a commission as soon as possible.

    ---------------------


    :bulletyellow:General info:


    •  A payment plan can be discussed. You can either pay full or 50% to begin and 50% when it's finished. full payment is preferred on lower-cost commissions (such as sketches, basic coloring, etc)
    • I cannot assure how long a piece will take, but roughly 1-2 weeks should be the general finish time depending on the commission,or 3+ weeks on larger pieces, all depending on free hours available on my schedule for commission work. Constant pressure of the commission won't help speed up the process, so I humbly ask you for patience and comprehension!
    • I will keep you updated with the progress of the commission, from rough sketches to color process. Fixes and modifications can still be done at this point. If you are satisfied with the final result, the commission is then complete, and you are sent the full image in full resolution. 
    • No fixes or modifications shall be made after sending you the final image. They are non-refundable past this point too.
    • Please supply any visual reference of anything and everything that can help visualize the idea of your commission. If a character commission, pictures depicting said character are important for the commission to happen, so please send them!
    • I can do pretty much any style you wish for, and add anything you want in it as long as I can get a basic idea, so sending reference helps a lot.


    ---------------------


    I will draw...

    • Original characters (characters you have created for yourself or projects, as well as fancharacters, based on existing fiction. If requesting someone else's character, please confirm to me you have permission for this, otherwise I can decline)

    ----



    That's it. Thank you for your support!! :heart:
    Well I got one
    You can buy prints of some of my drawings, as well as iphone/ipad cases, lap skins, pillows, shirts, etc. I hope to upload more to it soon!
    I haven't told about it here or few social media, but I'm gonna go in a few days to Las Vegas. I'm really excited, not only is it my first time there and see what's fun there besides casinos, but it's the first time in 4 years that I'll be visiting USA grounds, so I'm excited to come back for a while there. So, uh, see you around :D!
    Well hello people, How are ya?

    I mentioned it a while ago but I finished my classes, and after that came graduation, so I am over with college :) The ceremony was, well, small and humble, and I couldn't go to the generation eating and party for reasons, but it was a good day.  Looking back, while it is true my college wasn't really the best and my major choice is still in diapers, I still learned a lot, and I felt I not only grew artistically, but as a person. I feel a better person than what I was before I started this career. I met a lot of fantastic friends, and I really couldn't be happier!  Now it's on to the future.


    For now I will finish my thesis in character design to obtain my title, and then go look for a job. I also want to polish my skills in the meantime for my portfolio, and I want to open a new bank account so that I can finally be able to use paypal and be able to do comissions! I'll let you know when the latter happens and the terms I'll be working on, nothing too complex, just some simple rules for a win-win situation. I'll see you around :D!
    I finished college :O . Next week is my graduation. oh boy


    I dunno what to say about this sorry tho . I'll be more active now until I get a job.
    So have I told you guys I am currently on my last semester of college?  Time goes pretty quick, huh...and I've really learned a lot in this journy and met many amazing friends. Soon I will complete my thesis, get some random paper and look for a job. It kinda scares me, I really hope to be accepted into a game company over here, but fear my art will be rejected...it's my strongest area, and I manage myself on 3d just fine, I dunno...I just hope to get a stable and fun job on the game industry. But for now, I am trying to keep up with my classes, and aid friends (maybe too many) with indie games on concept art. I am also trying my hand on doing landscape art. I think I started with the wrong foot since I feel beginning with small thumbnails always helps, and I have two cool landscapes on big size. I will continue them, so yeah.  I guess that could be it.
