My Bio

Born in Singapore, but raised in the United States.

I am a dreamer at heart, and creating worlds and writing character bios have always been my form of escapism since I was a teen. I originally started drawing cartoons in the Federator style, but after college, I gradually switched to manga due to influence from series like Bleach, which I still draw in ever since.

Despite being born ethnic Chinese, I am a proud Japanophile (major fan of Japanese culture). Manga has been my gateway to Japanese culture, and I love anime, especially fantasy types like Magi and Shoukoku no Altair. Recently rediscovered my love for the Gundam franchise, especially in the After Colony continuity (Gundam Wing). I also like J-pop songs, and I am a major seiyuu buff. Expect me to mark out if I hear a familiar voice in Japanese (favorites right now are Hiro Shimono and Asami Seto).

Proud supporter of the Washington Capitals and Baltimore Ravens.

Hey everyone! Kenzai here. If you are taken by surprise by this journal title, I do not blame you. However, due to circumstances surrounding DA, I feel like I have to take precautions in order to save my own brand which I have been building for nearly two decades. Most of you are aware that DA had once again changed their terms and conditions, and there is a straight up ban on anything depicting underaged characters in compromising positions, especially female characters. Look, while I am definitely against anything related to hurting children, the way this was done was not only out of left field, but also seemingly on a whim. Considering where DA is based at (AND I live in the same cesspool, f me), I have to wonder exactly who is it that this new ban is targeted. Is it to sponsors who are obviously against NSFW content for branding reasons, or a small but VERY vocal group of narcissists who only exist to tear down others? Another thing that irks me is just how vague the definition

For future references, is it fine if I keep 3D characters in T or A poses?

Keeping it in T or A pose is fine
Give them a dynamic pose first

can you do commissions?

I have my career to think about, so no time for commissions and such any more. Sorry.

Hadn't seen your post about moving over to pixiv and really thought you'd disappeared, glad to see new art from you again!

Your birthday was yesterday, and today is both Sonic the Hedgehog 32nd Anniversary and National Belly Button Day? That must be pretty nice. Hope you had a great birthday and are enjoying today too.
