I really appreciate you all for the wonderful birthday wishes!! You guys are all amazing and I can't express how happy I've been to have y'all nearby T uT

I'm really sorry I can't reply to you all faster or even individually at times. I just want you to know that I'm really grateful for those who wished me well, and I hope to be here and art with you all for another year <3 My day was really good and relaxing (even my job left me alone without me doing anything lol), so was very peaceful time spent with family and close friends~

I want to showcase all the wonderful things I got from the community, and I want to encourage you all to go give these artists some love if you haven't already
(will tag them all too)

Taking a Break [Update 01/05/2019]

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 30, 2018, 2:43 PM


Otherwise titled "New Year, New Issues"

Several months ago, I poofed off the majority of the internet due to real life circumstances.  Now that I'm back, I guess I feel a lot safer summarizing my 2018 as a whole.  I remember a lot of complaints over how bad 2017 was but HOOBOY...2018..where to begin.

The year was okay as it started. But come February, one of my closest friends passed away due to a terminal illness.  He was confined to a wheelchair, but you honestly couldn't tell from that based on how you hung out with him.  His charisma was ridiculous and he seemed to pick up just about any skill he had interest in, whether it was art, billiards, guitar, you name it.  Being around him was like a haven where myself and many other people in my community came together just to socialize and unwind as we all gradually became adults. With him gone, it felt like the end of an entire era for us, as most of us don't stay in contact with each other as much as we used to.
  The following month, due to an aggressive company restructure, I found myself without work.  And that started a gap of 4 months where I struggled to find employment and keep up with artwork at the same time. Having no luck in my own town, I seeked elsewhere, and found one in a large city several hours away.  This forced me to put a halt on all artwork since.  After working there about a month or two, I found an apartment and moved out. And that's when more issues began. Due to an allegation, I lost work hours and wasn't able to negotiate or appeal it against a private company, so I was immediately jobless again, after leasing. Because of all this, November and most of December became an immense struggle for both financial security, a sound mind, keeping a roof over my head, and budgeting for food. More incidents occurred as well: less than a week of moving out, one of my blood relatives passed away in another country, and so my family is still fragmented as we each struggle with our own situations and can't band together to support each other in any way.  We also lost 2 family friends to cancer, and all 3 individuals passed away within the span of 30 days.  In the midst of all this... I regret to say that I made some decisions that cost me friendships along the way (to be fair, I don't know; I apologized a lot over this, and it sounded like things were well again, yet none that were involved have spoken to me since, so this is in the air for me). Due to all this, I've been very socially drained :'D and frankly..I see every comment and DM sent to me, but I never can muster the energy to reply back properly.  Hopefully that will clear up soon, as it's affected my time in dA as well.
  Since all this, I got into two jobs recently, training in both even now. I may need a third one. Who knows.  But things have settled down a lot more and I've been more at peace with myself and my situation. With my PC set up as well, I can happily say that I can get back to drawing..right?

Truth be told, it has been really difficult to return to art. I still feel rusty, and have gotten even slower than before.  I'm not happy with it :'D there's also a few bad art habits that I'm working on, but due to everything that's accumulated from the past year, there came a point lately where I reconsidered my entire stance on art and my future with it. I have clients who have waited over a year now oTL some who have paid for the art as well.  Some have completely forgot that they commissioned me.  So I deeply apologize for not being able to provide a better customer service experience. I hope to start again on everything and while my commissions are still open, I will not be advertising them any longer until things settle down to a manageable size. However, because of all these circumstances, I would like to be transparent with you all here about some upcoming changes for them.

- Price changes (most likely raising..yes)
- Possibly slots instead of waitlist, but ONLY for certain types of commissions
- I plan on experimenting more this year with style and proportions, as well as colors. I may open slots for those experiments
- I wish to make room for experimenting with adopts and designs, as well as stagger my comms with fanart and personal art

There is probably more but that's all I got for now. I hope this is all understandable. If I become 100% active again, I will start uploading only then (I do have a few things I can upload). I hope you all are having a wonderful 2019, and not having to juggle as much crap :'D //waves//

If you had an interesting holiday time, or anything cool or significant in your life, feel free to share here! I'm sure 2018 was eventful for all of you as much as it has been for me lol

PS: Part of what helped me cope through all this was playing the crap out of Granblue Fantasy LOL if you play it, feel free to add me, but I'll accept those I can recognize! ; w; ID: 23466435

Selling an old OC ($12)

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 13, 2018, 6:46 PM


You can check her out here, all the details are included.

I no longer have an attachment to her, but still feel bad she just sits in my files and rots T uT if any of you are willing to give her a good home, by all means send me a note. $12 including everything drawn of her, as original designer's rules state I can only resell her for the same price as what I bought her.

Serious inquiries only, any other kind of note will be ignored.

A Guide on Referencing

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 7, 2017, 10:27 AM


Hey guys, recently I collaborated with a group of several skilled artists and we decided to address the topic of referencing!  I'm not sure how many of you looked into this, but recently we have been noticing a lot of misconceptions and varied ideas on what referencing is and mixed ideas about its pros and cons.  I personally would like to believe this journal should clear things up for everyone about referencing and its practical uses~ Please give this journal a read as it may give you a lot of insight as to not only the topic of referencing, but also how it can greatly benefit your works!

From my personal experience, I only started referencing more often this year, with the help of Hyan.  And to me personally, it feels as though this year has been that one year where my understanding of things, skills, and speed with drawing, coloring, art in general really!, has soared and skyrocketed.  I started using references more, and frankly..it makes drawing easier.  And I understand how to place things more and draw cohesively without getting snagged in artblock or struggling for hours with the same limb or shoe or whatever it is I'm stuck on xD

If you wish to provide feedback or content to the topic, please follow the thumbnail to the central post and you can comment there!

A guide about referencingWe are a group of artists that have noticed there's widespread confusion and misconceptions spreading about the limits and ethics of referencing, so we have decided to help the community by clearing up the idea of what referencing is! -- You can also watch a video about it, just click here
What is referencing?
When we talk about “referencing,” we could also talk about “searching for information.” Imagine that you have to do an essay for school about plants, animals, planets, in other words, a subject you don’t know much about. What’s the first thing you do before you start writing? Search for information about that subject, either on the internet or books, or ask your family and friends.
In the art world, referencing is exactly the same. It’s recognizing your lack of knowledge about a specific thing and seeking knowledge about the subject, so that you know more t

AX 2017 - Experiences and Post-con

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 10, 2017, 6:43 PM


As some of you read in an earlier status I shared, I pretty much forgot to advertise that I was at AX this year.  I was actually tabling alongside Mallier and the experience of playing vendor over being an attendee was a huge contrast.  Especially since this was only the fourth time I've been to a con (apart from AX last year, and Sak-con the last 2 years...yes, con life for me started a year ago lol).  For a first time, it was immensely rewarding and I had a great time at the convention.  I shopped, got to speak and meet with other amazing artists (some of them even stalked me down //shot), autographed my own art, made money and other great experiences! I didn't expect it to be too stressful though either; every night was too exhausted to do much else really xD but overall it was a very fulfilling experience, and hopefully I'll be able to do it again sometime!

Without further ado, here is the loot dump /o/ for smaller breakdowns, feel free to roam here: sta.sh/2i4ye3e8riu?edit=1

The Mihawk in the corner was a gift from mine and Shio's helper, who happened to be CVAnimation, the Youtuber who did the animation for several death battles, most notably Bomberman vs. Megaman, and more recently, Metal Sonic vs. Zero! Feel free to check out his channel if his works catch your interests~ www.youtube.com/user/CVAnimati…

The Anastasia print, smaller Kanna print, the outfit cards from Aka-shiro, and 2B stand are all gifts for some of my close friends. Of the charms on the right corner, the Hanamaru button was a gift from Shio and was made by enzouke! I happened to poke her table and give her a hello since I've stalked her work for awhile too.  Hope we can hang sometime when we meet at a con again!  The Kannas and Nichijou charms are gifts to friends as well, and the stickers at the bottom were given to me by some random dude advertising donations outside the con lol

This was also the first con where I also got to meet Moorina, who's been one of my biggest inspirations for awhile.  I really enjoyed it all, and managed to give her a gift! I'm glad I had the opportunity. Overall, it's been a great con and I look forward to more in the future.  Thank you all who stopped by my table and said hello, you guys helped make it an amazing experience for me x)

Of course, all great things come to an end.  After I got back to my state, I was helping my brother move some stuff around, and dropped a table panel on my foot.  So I got home with one less toenail.  But it's a relief to be home and being able to draw soon.  There's many things I have to take care of the following week or two, but once most of it is out of the way, I will start working on the commissions and works that have been in queue for awhile! Please bear with me if you ordered from me!
