Journal History


Monochromatic Original Ink Drawing
I usually take commissions via Etsy and others, but looks like I can do this here on Deviantart also, so here we go ^^

Monochromatic (black and white) sumi ink drawing of the character of your choice, concept, oc, samurai-fying, etc. The size of the piece will be 8.5"x11". Only one detailed character per piece. 

MEDIUM: Ink and ink wash on high quality watercolor paper

(1) commission concept, ideas, references to be discussed
(2) preliminary sketch - to be confirmed by you before proceeding to final
(3) final ink drawing - once confirmed (I will ask you for final adjustments and what not), the original piece will be shipped to you :-)

There are slow months and busy months. But the average time from the start of the commission to shipment is usually around 1 ~ 1.5 months. 

Ask me any questions you have before committing ^^

MyCKs is a name we use for my mom, my little sister and I collaborating creatively. You probably can tell that we have loads of fun doing them ^-^

Mostly I post sumi/watercolor combo style paintings here on Deviant. This style is a combination of my Mom's Japanese calligraphy and my sumi based painting.

And some other digital experiments and random oil paintings I work on here and there are sometimes posted.

My sister is a pro-graphic designer, and does her own thing, but I mention her since we do collaborative work once in a while.

Thanks for taking your time to look :D

If you contact me via [notes] and not get a response, that just means I'm just forgetting to check it - not trying to ignore you or anything >.< If in a hurry to contact me, please try Etsy convo, I log in there everyday :-)

Zoro sumi art
Zoro!! This was a reward ink sketch for one of my Patreson supporters ^^

One Piece will always remain in my heart as one of my favorites from my past ^^ (I know it's still going.. I'll have to catch up.. )

Also, I will be stopping with the commissions temporarily, as the queue is just too long at the moment, leaving me no space to work on anything else. 

I am re-opening it in January, most likely, except Patreon commissions will be on-going always.

A detailed and visceral art style, coupled with the occasional skilled use of compelling colour. Simply fantastic. The world is lucky to have you.
