So.... i haven't been terribly active on DA lately. 3 reasons. 1. I applied for a Zine and got in, i'll post more info for it when i can but for now i hope you look forward to some Falcom art. 2. Natsume week is happening again (may 15th - 21st) so i've been working hard to get my entries done for that because very soon... 3. I'm going to Japan.... for a decent amount of time... as i wont be near a computer I can't post any finished pictures. Most of my activity will be on twitter for updates.
So yeah just here to say sorry for inactivity but time for a mini hiatus.... I'll have a few finished pictures to post for natsume week but then probably going to focus on the Zine after i get back. so yeah if you want to see me more active head over to tumblr or patreon since i post sketches there.
Want to help Support my art? you can buy me a Ko-fi!
i figured there no harm in posting videos in more then one spot so here you go! feel free to come say hi! vid.me/Raichana
All Prices are in USD. If you are interested please send me a note. Please only request one piece at a time! Simple BGs include Transparent, Single colour, Gradient and Patterns. Detailed BGs are temporarily unavailable due to my physical health, sorry about that
when commissions are open slots are unlimited so don't feel the need to request commission weeks i advance, i wont charge you till i'm ready to start the sketch. Remember to attach a SHORT bio of the character(s) as well as any reference images you have. Also if you have an idea for a pose let me know!
Ever wanted to hear me ramble about how much i'm enjoying Tokyo mirage Session? or how my love of falcom began? you can hear it here! also i would love to hear your opinion on how to improve since it's my first time being on a podcast and i was super nervous
Hey a friend of mine has opened some Emergency commissions~ she did this adorable piece for me! based on an old magical girl design i had for rai. if you are curious about her commission rate you can see them here:
I'm also thinking i should open commissions soon, we will see~
So i have been a on and off subscriber for the past 11 years... that is coming to an end in just a few days. i mean 64 CAD for less features then i've ever had in previous years? no last time i got my sub it was around 30 and that was high considering i only really use the thumbnail feature and polls.
so yeah... i have been drifting away from this site. i don't see myself completely leaving cause i love the community here but yeah... if you want to see my newest stuff or chat with me you can find me here:
Since i've been doing these as Daily-ish sketches over on tumblr i wanted to link them here since i'm not going to colour all of them but i still want to share, if you see a sketch you really want finished let me know!
Make a post in your dA journal (please include this manual - I won’t grant any wishes, if I see no manual). The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
If you wish for real-life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
Surf around your friends list (or friends friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part: If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.
The list: 1) Check out my Redbubble! I have lots of different things for sale. 2) Art of any of my Characters or Merpeople~ here's a bunch at a glance OC-tober Sketch dump 3) Anything Ys Related: art, fanfics, Playing the game... anything 4) Anything Trails in the sky (or Legend of Heroes) related: Art, Fanfic, playing the game... anything 5) Anything Natsume Yuujinchou related: Art, Fanfic, talking about potentially devastating AUs and Headcanons.... ANYTHING 6) Come say hello on Twitter or Tumblr or Patreon 7) Suggestions of series/characters you want to see more art from~ won't promise anything but i'd love to hear your opinion 8) Check out my friend HieiSetsunaShika 's Redbubble! 9) Check out my Friend Boundbyribbon 's Redbubble! 10) Do something kind for a stranger
Figured it was time to her the huge OC-tober post off my journal. Just a quick update, working on some colouring some of the pieces i did during OC-tober. Playing lots of Trails in the Sky Second Chapter (if you like JRPGs i highly recommend the Trail in the Sky games) Other then that just trying to keep warm as the weather keeps getting cooler.
OC-tober Last year during October i did Inktober, it was fun and challenging but i didn't want to do it again. This year i'm seeing people posting about OC-tober where every day you draw a different Original Character and add a bio and some back story. So if you've ever been curious about some of my OC's come over to Tumblr or Patreon where i will post all the info. If you are planning to participate in OC-tober let me know and i'll post a link here for you!
Raffle Commissions! I have been trying to figure out a way to offer cheaper commissions without needing to rush or take out detail. So i'm going to try this as an experiment... Every month i will do a raffle for 3 dollar Patrons and one of them will win a commission. the type of commission available will change based on how much money i earn every month. Otherwise the commissions will be exactly like the ones i do for full price, same rules and guidelines and everything. The nice thing about patreon is that you can cancel your pledge at any time so if you don't get picked for a raffle and don't want to try again you can stop and it's not hard feelings. The double edge sword of this is that i have to wait for the 3 dollar pledges to actually go through the payment process before i can pick a winner... which is why it's an experiment, i may open it up to "you just need to be a patron to be entered in the raffle" at some point.
how does this change normal commissions? It doesn't, I am still fully open for any type of commission and because the payment is at the start you'll get the art sooner then having to wait for the raffle. Slots 1. BoboMagroto - Commission: Protection 2. BoboMagroto - Final touches 3. 4. 5.
Of course if you ever have any questions feel free to send me a note, i'll try to answer ASAP.
I'm going to move the bulk of my submitting to patreon. This doesn't mean everything is going to be put behind a paywall, far from it. aside from cheaper commissions (which should open sometime early september) everything will be available on patreon for free with a few perks if you do decide to be a patron. This means any daily sketches, speedpaints (which i will do more of), alternate version and whatnot will be posted there before everywhere else, mainly because i really like the interface. Just a quick preview of stuff that is posted there~
I finally have some free time so it's time to open commissions! Payment is 100% upfront however i will not request the payment till i am ready to start working on your piece. If you are interested please feel free to send a note!
I will be posting lots of things there, mostly finished pieces and WIPs of ongoing projects. I will also be answering any questions i get. If you use tumblr let me know! i would love to follow you!
I'm also going to be livestreaming on Picarto I will post a notification journal here (as well as on tumblr and Twitter) which will be deleted once i'm done streaming. Please feel free to say Hi, i may even do some with my mic on if people want that kind of thing.
So what about DA? I'm not going anywhere, i'm just feeling like this website is changing in a way that doesn't work for me. I'll still post and comment because i really love this community, i just wanted to let you know there are other places i'm far more active
Edit: Changed the title to make the theme clearer but still the same contest. We all have a point in our life when something changes. Maybe you got fired from work Maybe it's your first day at a new school Maybe you got changed into a mythological creature one day... the possibilities are endless.
So that's the theme, I would like an Image of a character going through something that starts a new chapter of their life. It can be literally any type of change you can imagine as long as you can justify it in the description of the image.
This means that along with an image I would like a little story explaining the change. (nothing big or fancy, just enough to get your idea across) I will be judging primarily on creativity so please feel free to go wild.
You may do fan character or Original characters, i'm more interested in the your interpretation of the theme.
Rules: 1 Entry per Person Any Medium or Style is allowed, All levels of skill are welcome. The image has to have been made in 2015, so it can be a little older if you happen to have an image that fits the theme but i'd prefer it be new stuff. No Tracing, No Bases and No Art Theft of ANY kind.
Home from the con and very tired but i had a blast!
Tomorrow my fav of the Mer-Royalty set so far... i'm sure others may not care about it as much as i did but wow was it fun for me. also starting to ink the outer senshi as royalty so thats fun, those should hopefully be submitted once a week
Can't wait for friday, my fav Con of the year starts! I have been tempted to try and sell art there but... it's a con i actually enjoy attending >< so yeah if i don't reply much this weekend... i'm not ignoring you just away from my computer.
Other then that i have finally sketched all the outer senshi so those should hopefully all start going up soon.
I'm also debating opening commissions up again soon, some time in august (when my job ends essentially) so if you are interested let me know.
I Also have a redbubble account and they have some pretty cool merch like Stickers, T-shirts, Spiral bound notebooks and even mugs, come check it out if you are curious! you'll often see things that haven't been posted here yet.
Other then that i think i'll enjoy these last few crazy weeks of work... especially since i may have a lot of time inbetween shows or i may end up rolling right into the next one. nobody knows just yet~
I am Celebrating by.... going to work cause my job elected to have the day off monday instead of today.
but hey i got a long weekend so yay!
I also want to wish an early Happy 4th of July to any Americans who have stopped by!
Other then that quick update! The inner Mer princess senshi are all done and will post over the next few weeks (but you can see them now if you know where to look) I am currently working on chibi usa and then i'll be sketched the outer sense since lots of people seem to be enjoying the series.
again if there are any characters you specifically want to see let me know and i'll think about it! they are pretty fun for me to do and i want to have lots of variety.
