Hello, this is Akuto! I'm an aspiring writer, but I also dabble into art every once in a while. It's been my dream to write children's and young adult fiction since I was young, but I'm very slow (hopefully I'll be able to put up some of my work soon, though). My art style is fairly generic and anime-like, but I'm working hard to improve and make it my own. I also take photos of cosplay from the conventions I've been to.

My most prominent interest is anime/manga, but I also love a wide variety of shows, video games, books, and hobbies to keep me well-rounded. I especially love Homestuck right now and much of my work revolves around it, but I assure you that it by far isn't the only thing I draw. I also draw some ponies, Pokemon, various OCs/original ideas, and other miscellaneous anime things.

I am the founder of The Secret Society of Fiction Writers, which is a group I've made for the purpose of helping fellow authors grow and improve their skills. Feel free to join! If you have trouble in the group please come to me personally.

Most anything else you could know about me can be found in my stamps!

Commissions: Please look at my commission info for pricing and other guidelines. I can answer anything the info doesn't cover, feel free to ask me about it!

Requests: I only do requests that sound interesting to me. I won't always do them right away, so I may leave it for months on end and forget about it. Also, requests are SKETCH ONLY. Because I'm taking my valuable time and energy to make you something for free, I think this is only fair. If you agree this is fair, please go ahead and try asking for one!

Art Trades/Collabs/etc.: I generally will only do these if A) it sounds interesting/is for something I'm familiar with, B) I'm not too tired/busy, and C) if I feel I know you well enough. If you aren't sure you meet the criteria, there's no harm in asking me anyway.

hey so, I think after this batch of commissions I’ll be taking a long break from doing them for a while. I still intend to continue commissions at some point, and I’m still very much working on my anxiety and adhd (I have new meds I’m trying and I’m scheduled for future therapy sessions), but I think right now commissions might be too ambitious for me. I want to work on drawing my personal work (and sometimes requests) on a regular basis first, and then once I get to a point where I am comfortable drawing almost every day I will likely open commissions again!

I will definitely finish the commissions I currently have before the break, and I’ll still be accepting requests (only requests I’m interested in doing, sketch-only, at my own pace…as usual)! :D

Hey guys, I'm in a really tight spot financially at the moment, so I'd really appreciate it if some of you commissioned me or at least donated to my Ko-fi. It would help out so much that I promise I'll pay back the price somehow.

ko-fi.com/H2H389ZC 
I'm gonna be flying for the first time soon and watching these things ascend at a sixty degree angle or whatever is fuckin wild

been thinking about this for a while, and until things change for me I’m going to have to shift the way I go about commissions. this won’t affect most of you too much, but after letting my most previous commission go unfulfilled for at least a year due to some serious anxiety and executive dysfunction issues I had to let that one go. I want to fix that and I’ve already taken some steps to do so, but change won’t happen right away so I want to make some adjustments in the meantime

firstly, although I’ve already changed my commission slots to five I’m reducing them again to three. that way they won’t weigh on me so heavily, and commissioners will hopefully not have to wait as long for me to get to them

I also want to begin setting something like “progress reports”, where basically a commissioner gives me a date and I have to show the progress I’ve made. if they’re not pleased they can drop the commission there, but if they like the work so far they can set another date and so on until it’s finished. I do not ask for pay by the hour, or even to be paid upfront, and I think something like this will encourage me to not push myself to get it all done in one go

well, I get this sort of arrangement isn’t something most artists do, but I’m hoping this will help me work with what I’ve got. if not this, I would seriously consider shutting down commissions entirely. but I’m open to suggestion, so if anyone has any advice working with anxiety and executive dysfunction (specifically from ADHD) I would love to hear it!

You may have noticed that a few request pieces have been removed from my gallery. This isn't because I hate the work I did or regret it in any way! I've been thinking a lot, and I've realized that certain sites are more suitable for certain types of audiences, and that I want to start building my "brand" so to speak. Even requests from say, a show I don't happen to be interested in might be considered "not my brand"!

Like, if I start doing a bunch of requests for Doctor Who, I don't exactly want to suddenly be known only as "the Doctor Who-guy", y'know? Even though I'd still be happy to draw them!

Things I make for myself ARE my brand however, and none of those will be moved :b

So on more public, "general-interest" sites like tumblr and dA I'm going to be a little more picky about what I show, and the rest I'll put on places like furaffinity (www.furaffinity.net/user/kamiy…). I'm not hiding anything, I just think that everything has its place. If you're worried about where your request went, or you followed me for something I got rid of, go to my furaffinity! :V
Tagged by :iconamykittenfox: once again

1)Choose one of your own characters.
2) Make them answer the following questions.
3) Then, tag three or more other people.
4) Your allowed to tag back. (optional)

Gem Story came up again, and I only have one other character in that so...Meraud


1) Hello! What's your full name? Do you like your name?
"My name is Meraud...something to do with emeralds. Hey, I'm not dumb, blame the author guy!"

*didn't even read the note*

"I guess my name's okay...my given name also means emerald, but when your family is the world's leading exporter of emeralds they kind of stop caring about originality."

2) Neat name! How old are you?
"I'm fifteen, the youngest and best knight-in-training of all time. >:^) "

3) What exactly are you?
"I just said, I'm a knight. The best one. Keep up."

4)  Hmm, what's your favorite food/drink?
"The head chef at my estate makes the best egg pudding...it sucks that I can't have it anymore. If I could, I'd have him make some for Raiz! Ah, I also like hot apple cider."

5) Cool! Have any siblings? If not, have you ever wanted any?
"I'm an only child. Not that it matters, my parents are too busy to talk to me anyway, so if I had any I'd never see them. ^^; Oh, but I'd love to have a little sister that can look up to me!"

6) Interesting, have parents? Which of your parents do you look more like?
"My parents both have emerald eyes of course, which they gave me. It's a family trait. I wouldn't be surprised if they made emerald eyes a condition for choosing my future husband... My red hair is more like mother's, I got a lot of my looks from her. But I'm less...serious, to say the least. Both of my parents are talented gem users, so because of that they like to remind me I'm not very much like them at all. That's funny huh, when we look so similar?" *awkward laugh*

7) Who's your best friend, do you have more than one?
"Um...it's Raiz! Haha, I had to think about that. I was very popular in my squad, but no one really hung out with me like Raiz and I do now. They must have been intimidated by my lance skills, so I don't blame them!"


"But y'know, I really should thank Raiz for sticking by me. No one has ever really understood me like she does, or really tried to..."

8) Oh, that's cool! Have a crush/lover? If so, what do you like about them? Is there anything you don't like about them? Be honest I won't tell!~
*awkward* "Haha, I'm a little young for that... Not even my parents are pressuring me about that yet, though I'm not sure they would bother until I'm old enough for marriage. Assuming I'm accepted back into the family by then. But uh, none of the guys have really stood out to me, they all sort of blur together to be honest."

9) Do you ever plan on having kids or adopting? Do you even like kids?
"Oh yeah, I love kids! They're so funny, and they love it when I show them my lance skills! >:^D "

"I guess I just have a way with them. I haven't thought a whole lot about having kids myself, but I like the idea. Can't be that hard, right?"

10) Do you have any secrets? If so, your secret is safe with me! 
"Um, nope! I'm pretty much an open book. :D "

11) Interesting, okay! What's your weakness, have any?
"Haha, as much as I'd like to say I don't have any..."

"I have a nerve disorder that blocks the flow of energy in my body, meaning I don't have any ability to use gemstones without the help of a tool, like my lance. The doctor told my parents it was the worst case she'd ever seen; it's so bad it's hard to bring out the energy even with my lance. Because of that, my parents had pretty much given up on me ever taking over the family business (even before I was kicked out). So instead of studying gemancy, I studied the blade! I was really good and fighting and physical stuff, but my parents didn't care about that. So I've resolved to be the best knight of them all, so I can earn their respect, and though that hasn't happened yet it's gotten me really far!"

"Even though there's something I can't do, I'd much rather focus on what I can do. I'm a great fighter, I've worked hard to become a great fighter, and I'm really proud of that! So what if I don't know a thing about gemancy, or how to cook, or how to do long division, that's what I have Raiz for! And if I really could do everything, then maybe I wouldn't have her and I would hate that. And I'm sure she feels the same way when I beat strong guys and do the heavy lifting for her, even if she won't say it!"

"Whoa, that turned into a speech there, sorry about that! But take it from me, believe in yourself. >:^D "

12) What are some of your greatest fears? Have a phobia?
"I ain't afraid of no things but...when it comes to the dark, I really don't like being alone."

13) If you could make a wish come true, what would you wish for?
"I would say 'to become the strongest, and most loved knight of all time' but...it wouldn't feel like I've really earned it, y'know? How about an infinite supply of sweets!"

14) Can I hug you?
"Of course, I always have hugs for my fans! :^D "

15) How would you describe yourself in three words?
"Strong, amazing, the best...wait."

16) Ever been bullied or picked on? If so, did you ever get them back?
"We've fought a lot of strong guys, but I really wouldn't call that bullying... People are usually too in awe of me to ever think of bullying me! Plus, they'd probably just get on my family's bad side, and no one wants that."

17) What are your favorite things to do?
"I really like training, of course! Wouldn't be where I am today if working up a sweat was too much of a bother."

"...Boring answer, huh? Well, I also like painting, horseback riding, pool (it's like lancing), improv theater, and loads of board and card games (most of them single-player)! Almost all of them I can't bring with me on the road. I'm teaching Raiz some card games, but I miss my horse Beryl. :'^( "

18) Have you killed anyone or committed a crime?
[answer postponed until I figure some shit out]

19) What was your favorite toy as a child, and whatever happened to it?
"My parents got me a little bear toy when I was born. I keep it on the mantle in my room and never touch it, I don't want to damage it! I already had to get it repaired once after I had chewed off its ear as a toddler... It's the only thing my parents ever gave me that wasn't practical. The rest I bought myself, or was given to me by the staff at birthdays and such. But this bear, it's sort of the proof that deep down my parents really do care, and see me as their daughter. Or at least, they did at some point. And now it's up to me to bring that love out of them again!"

20) Ah, interesting, well this meme is almost over! Just one more question, what is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
"Well, when I was really little I brought over a friend to my estate. I was so excited, I wanted to show father right away so I dragged her to him. He was having a meeting with some foreign gem merchants, and so when I burst into the room to tell him he slapped me and told me not to interrupt him. I was so upset, I...had an accident in front of everyone... I never saw that girl again, and I was so ashamed I never brought anyone home again. I don't ever want to feel like that again."


it's funny how little Raizel said in the last one, but Meraud is like "an excuse to talk about me??". but uh, it got a little emotional at the end, sorry about that
