Etsy Store!

Fri Feb 12, 2016, 4:23 AM

I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time, but I’m now happy to announce I finally opened up an Etsy Store!

My main goal is to finish the whole smash roster for buttons / badges, the pic below has all the ones I have done thus far. Hopefully the full roster will be complete in the first half of this year.

                                       Check out my store here!

I don't write many journals anymore, but just to get the outdated news about Animaga away, I like to tell you I have got a new friend.

Obviously like Obi my cockatiel, his name is a Star Wars reference (which is actually on TV every Sat at the moment).

Untitled by Kosmotiel

I found out he is a spangle and they're so pretty!

Luke settled into his new home pretty quickly! I was amazed! He was chirping already.

I think Obi had more settling to do then Luke did, haha. Obi was constantly looking at him all day, poor little Luke looked like he was being stalked.

Untitled by Kosmotiel
These pics were taken shortly after we got him in the cage.


It's been over a week since we've had Luke already and gosh he's so noisy and energetic! He will try out anything new. He seems to like new stuff, food included! I think he would want to become an acrobat as a career, haha. Budgie circus?

Here's a photo with his wing patterning. Isn't it pretty?

Aaaand now he's on the Naboo fighter. Of course Luke was destined to end up there. He better hold on- er perch on tight.

I'll update this journal when I get better pics and find out more about him!

I haven't written one in like a year and a half or something like that. rofl

Anyway I wanted to inform you guys that I'm having a stall at Animaga, Melbourne next weekend! I'll be with crittercat and Cloud-queen who will be selling amazing craft work and more!
Our stall is Mixed Juice and I'll be cosplaying as Lucas (again). I'll be with Boney!

Our stall's here! We're right beside the video game area which is pretty neat. ^^

How is everyone? I hope you're doing fine. I'm doing really good!
Last week was one of the best moments I had all year! I ran a table with my friends at a convention called Manifest. We did very well too!

It was amazing! I have to go next year, I need to cosplay too... yeah I didn't cosplay this year... just wore my Nintendo t-shits with a Mario and Tanooki hat.
Haha my Eeveelutions bookmark sold like crazy! I nearly sold out of them! 
I also did a few commissions, and to my surprise nearly half of them were Earthbound/Mother related! 
Haha, I didn't even expect to meet other Earthbound/Mother fans to be honest. The series seriously needs more attention. It's too good not to. I'm just so happy that I meet fellow Earthbound/Mother fans!

I also did a bit of shopping myself. ^^ I've never got into badges before, but I did now. I bought myself a little Archeops plush. I loooove Archeops. 

Anyway, for the second half of this journal, I'm going to introduce commissions.


I'm offering sketches, coloured pencil drawings, and digital. Prices are as follows:

The following prices apply to both digital and colouring pencil.

:bulletred: 100 points or $3 for simple non background full body (quick shading) 50 points or $2 for sketch:

Mother 3

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 24, 2013, 12:17 AM
Suitable journal skin for a suitable topic. ^^

I beaten Mother 3 finally! So it's time for me to rave on about it!


Firstly, don't judge Lucas's personality by SSBB's subspace emissary, he's not cowardly but brave, heroic and has a very strong heart. Unlike most protagonists, he develops throughout the game, beginning as a timid, shy child and finishing as a hero. One of the best protagonists in any game. He really deserved being placed in SSBB's roster. (just really hope he gets into SSBB4)

The other characters, none are cliched. Porky being the main antagonist, is the real coward. He is an antagonist who doesn't show off his real power, if he has any, he gets others to do it by brainwashing them. You don't actually defeat him, he says he can't die. 
Claus, Lucas's twin brother was brainwashed thinking that he's "porky's robot". At the very end of the game, he woke up to his senses by his Mother's (Hinawa) voice. It was the power of love which brought him back. And at this stage, generally they'll reunite back together and save the world. No, they didn't, Claus died in Lucas's and Flint's (father) arms...

With that being said, there's actually no real final boss who is defeated in the game. I don't know about you but I haven't come across many games where it ends without having to defeat a final boss. (unless it's something like Mario kart and the like)

I like how all the protagonists are totally different in appearance and personality. I mean look, a psychic boy travels with his dog, a tomboy princess, and a moron, can it get better?

I love the subject matter and general storyline. It's probably my taste of things to like the idea of reconstructed animals and chimeras, but they fitted well as general enemies. Some of them were very hilarious, and weird. Though their sense of "weird" is what I like. 


I could rave on forever, but I think it'll just get too long. After all I'm not a writer. 

I'm desperately wanting to play Earthbound now, Mother 3 is one of the best game I've ever played. Like everyone else who's played it, I'd love to see a remake, or at least an english release. It really deserves it. 
It's very sad, but it does have a good ending. 

Also, the 10,000 pageview free request thing is still on. We're getting very close now only a little more to go! 
Details are here:

ALSO does anyone know how to change the colour of font in a journal?  As much as I love this journal skin, I find the white text a little difficult to read!!

I just noticed that i'm under 500 page views from reaching 10,000. 
So with that, I will be offering a free request to anyone who can catch me with 10,000 views.
All you need to do is show me a screen shot as proof and the free request is yours!

I don't usually do requests unless they're an art trade so this is your opportunity to get something without needing to make something for me! 

If no one claims the 10,000th view, you can show me the closest one within ten. (so max is 10,010) But it can't be under of course.

:bulletblue:REQUEST GUIDELINES:bulletblue:

:bulletred: I specialise in animals (especially birds), so I'm not as confident with people, but it doesn't mean I can't draw them!
:bulletred: I'm less confident with detailed backgrounds.
:bulletred: I'm willing to draw any Nintendo character, including any Pokemon.
:bulletred: I like drawing Jrock/pop bands and artists.
:bulletred: It can be traditional or digital.
:bulletred: Giving me a scenario would be more interesting for me (and you!)

Yeah like the title says, Updates. 
About time too.

I'm officially on holidays now (yay XD) so more art. 
Also because of E3 everyone's excited for the many coming games. I might make some fanart of them. 

Also, since it was my birthday a few days ago, I might take some photos of my Nintendo collection. Yeah, I got some more stuff on my birthday, and it really needs an update. I have a lot stuff then those shots... oh, it was on my old account so you probably haven't seen it anyway.

Also I want to give a shot at some animation. ^^ 
I got quite inspired by some tutorials here on dA.

I should bring my original characters to life. Yeah.

I want to draw more Pokemon too! 
It would be nice if people can suggest which Pokemon for me to draw. ^^
I'll appreciate it!

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U / 3DS and more!

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 11, 2013, 7:38 PM
E3 2013, I didn't watch it cause it was on during my bed time, but the next morning, now, I found so much upcoming stuff.
Stuff to look forward to. I'm just gonna show the Nintendo stuff because... well I'm a huge Nintendo fan.

:bulletred: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U / 3DS:
Official site:
Trailer 2:…

I just hope Lucas and Falco are gonna be in it. At least one of them. Really looking forward to this game. The Wii fit trainer as a playable character is just hilarious. XD
Graphics look amazing, especially for Bowser.

:bulletred: Mario Kart 8:

Of course, who doesn't like Mario Kart.

:bulletred: Pikmin 3:

:bulletred: Donkey Kong Country tropical freeze:…

:bulletred: New Super Luigi U

:bulletred: Yoshi's New Island

:bulletred: Super Mario 3D World (with new cat suit!)

:bulletred: Also, for the new Pokemon game, there is now a new fairy type which is the new Eevee, Sylveon's type. Pokemon like Jigglypuff, and Marill will gain this type too.

(I might add on to this journal if I'm stuffed)

Wii U games to come

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 29, 2013, 4:31 AM
On Nintendo direct there was news about new coming games on the Wii U. Some seem to be expecting while others are something to look forward to:

:bulletred: Two Zelda games were revealed by Eiji Aonuma, the producer of the Zelda series.

:bulletred: A Mario 3D action game, (like Super Mario galaxy) which is to be scheduled to be playable at E3.

:bulletred: A Mario kart game which is also to be scheduled for E3.

:bulletred: Yarn Yoshi, the first game to feature Yoshi as the main character on a console game since 1998's Yoshi Story for Nintendo 64. It'll be put together by the same team that did Kirby's epic yarn, along with Takashi Tezuka, who is the director for Yoshi's island, and Yoshi's story.

:bulletred: There's other games like Wii fit U, and Wii party U, for family.

:bulletred: Fire Emblem and Shin-Megami Tensei (which I haven't heard of) collaboration between Nintendo and Atlus, for RPG players.

:bulletred: Of course a new Super Smash bros is also underway too.

:bulletred: GAME & WARIO to be released in the first half of 2013.

There's even more games that I don't recognise that are going to be released too.

Personally I'm looking forawrd to the Zelda games, the Yoshi game and of course Super Smash Bros.. The Fire Emblem one sounds interesting too.

Pokemon X and Y

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 8, 2013, 5:02 PM
So apparently there's going to be a new Pokemon game with new Pokemon again. The starters are Chespin the grass starter which kinda looks like a Chipmunk thing to me, Fennekin, a fire fox, and Froakie, a water frog.
The other new Pokemon known are the legendary mascots, one being a red eagle thing and a blue deer-like thing. Their names are not known yet.
Well I'm certainly gonna get the game with the bird legendary mascot (Pokemon Y I believe), but I can't decide on which starter I'll choose yet. I need to wait till I see the evolutions. But now it's probably Fennikin, since it doesn't look too childish. Though Forakie looks pretty cool too, especially it's name.

Overall I think the new starters look better than than the 5th gen ones, let's just hope the generation will be better as a whole. I also heard that there's new evolutions to previous gen Pokemon plus a new eeveelution. I hope Chatot gets one, I love a lot, but It's too weak...

Anyway, try to not get excited too much yet, the game's not going to be released until October.

Christmas and more

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 30, 2012, 6:04 PM
Wow I can't believe I haven't even done a journal on Christmas yet, especially when we got a Wii U. Anyway, besides that I also got Pokemon White 2 and I love it. It's a big improvement from the previous ones. No wonder why it was the only Pokemon game the got into one of the best DS games of all time.
Most of you people probably spent a good time with your family and other relatives, not saying we didn't but since our relatives live overseas, I just spent it with mum, dad and my bro. (and Obi)
How was your Christmas?

We're also going into a Beatles moment from playing Beatles Rock Band. And I've drawn a pic of them for my dad. I hope to catch up with more drawings now, especially since I got all the Christmas stuff out of the way.

Also, Happy New Year everybody!
What is your New Year's resolution?

My drawing of my cockatiel

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 3, 2012, 10:22 PM
I always like to print out my drawings of my birds to stick them up on the wall. So yesterday after I went to get my Obi drawing printed I stuck it on the wall with my other drawings of Sammy. That was beside the cage. Totally a bad idea. By nighttime Obi started to become very interested in it. He was sitting in the side of the cage looking and squeaking at it and when you come near he got aggressive. At first I wasn't even sure if it was the picture that was making him behave oddly. I moved it away and he followed it...
So in the end I stuck it on the wall opposite to the side his cage is in other words, far away. Obi was constantly looking for it... It looked mean, like taking a toy from a child. It wouldn't end nice if I left it there. He'll ignore us and spend all day near the drawing.
Anyway, he quickly got over it after patting his head for a good long time. And he's perfectly back to normal now.
Well, lesson learnt: Never stick drawings and photos of cockatiels near a cockatiel's cage.

Gee... do I draw cockatiels too well?

So recently I've been looking at tons of posts on Tumblr and I've been thinking whether it's point joining it or not.

What benefits are there? I see you can post art on there too but it's not as big as dA (of course).
I just don't want to join if I'm not going to go on there often.

I actually like it cause I can find tons of pic on there, lol. But I can look at them without joining  Tumblr.

Is there anyone I watch who has Tumblr? I'd love to know!

Update... kinda

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 16, 2012, 11:29 PM
I really just wanted to use this journal skin, lol. (GazettE FTW!)
Updates... well if you read my previous journal, I'm on holidays now. So lots of submissionsssss.
So this is the order of Pokemon I might draw them in: (mainly based on the poll)
1. Zoroark (done)
2. Articuno (WIP)
3. Reshiram
4. Lucario
5. Houndoom
6. Milotic
And with other pics here and there.

Also, I added two more collections in my faves. Bowser and Budgies/Cockatiels. I felt like they really needed their own collection. (why I'm telling this, I dunno)

Oh and my cockatiel Obi, he's trying to learn a little tune we whistled to him! He hasn't got it perfect yet but you can tell that it's what we're trying to teach him. ^^

Can't think on anything else to say  at the moment... but
Are you going to do something special for Christmas? Or is it going to be a normal one like mines?

I've officially finished my first year at Uni. ^^
So if you think I don't post too much already, I'll be posting more often.
I'm in a Pokemon mood now so I'll be drawing more of that.
And there will be some other fanart, thinking of some more with Bowser. (love that character)
It's really just the usual stuff I draw, lol, just with more Pokemon. Oh and I might draw the Gazette again.
Got any ideas on what Pokemon I should draw?
I'm thinking about Acticuno (of course), Houndoom, Milotic, Zoroark, probably Reshiram and Lucario.

(Never have posted so many journals in such a small time.  But I had to.)

I ended up getting a cockatiel, just like I wanted. He's a beautiful boy, and he's hand reared so he's already well tamed. He's about 4-6 months old, so he's still very young. I ended up, after a long discussion, calling him Obi. (After Obi-Wan Kenobi)

I've never drawn many cockatiels, but I will now of course. ^^
I'll post photos of him too.

Seems like he's already been taught to whistle, I'm hoping he'll be able to whistle some songs, and hopefully talk like Sammy. ^^

My budgie's better where he is now, after struggling for almost two weeks.
I loved him so much, as did everyone else...

Sammy, be happy forever.
I'll never forget the way you talked, the way you copied every sound around yourself. Someday hopefully, I'll see you again. And Max, I can't forget you either.

Sammy by Kosmotiel
Sammy Boy by Kosmotiel

I'm still deciding whether to get another budgie or a cockatiel. I heard they equally as easy to look after, though we'll need a new cage if I decide to get a cockatiel. (and a new seed mix)
I need names too...

It's good too that the stress is off everyone, even if it ended the negative way.

Composition (and a little more)

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 20, 2012, 10:39 PM
I realised that I really need to work on composition. Does anyone know any useful tips and advices?
Probably it'll be more helpful if anyone could explain how to improve the composition on any of my pictures.
I feel like I've moved one step (digital colouring) and must move on to the next (composition).

And I also really worry about my budgie. He's got sick and he's like this for nearly a week. I'm taking him to the vet nearly everyday for an injection. Apparently he's got a chest infection. I really hope he gets better, it's so strange with him this quiet...
