And so it comes, summer of the year. More heat in my area which I am not looking forward to T_T. But tis what it is.

This year I wanna try to get some comics out. I always present my characters a lot but most of what is known is just through descriptions and what not. I really need to show it first hand then tell it. Won't be too frequent though (commitments and what not) but I'll try where I can.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the request last time and even moreso for your patience for my many, MANY delays. You guys are awesome ^_^.


And...that really it. E3 was interesting, was happy to see Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 remake, Metal Wolf Chaos FINALLY getting released down here (on multiple platforms even), a Cuphead DLC, Beyond Good and Evil 2, Kingdom Hears 3 (Show of hands, who thought Frozen wouldn't be a playable world? If so, you haven't been paying attention to the Disney canon and merchandise lately have you), Insomnic's Spider-Man and of course Smash Bros Ultimate (with my girl Daisy finally being playable! Woot! Okay she's an "Echo Fighter" but hey I'll take what I can get). Sure not the most mind-blowing of conferences but least most of they showed aren't too far off from being playable so looking forward to em. 

With that hope you all are enjoy your time off from school (or if outside the U.S whatever season your in at the current and hope it's treating you well) and please take care of yourselves =D.

Oh yeah and commission are still open.

This week marks Spring in my neck of the woods and I more then happy to finally get out of the cold (granted that likewise means more rains in my area but still).

UPDATE (4-26-18)
: Sorry for the wait all. Been pretty busy. I assure you I am still working on the request. They've been scanned and traced. Just need to color. So bear with me a little while longer.


 UPDATE (5-10-18): Okay people, some words here. When it comes to commission, art trades or the likes. I assure you I do my best with with you give me and I can understand if you don't like it. Just please be kind and professional enough to tell that rather just not saying it at all when I submit it. Because that is extremely rude and I find that more insulting then anything because that makes me feel like I wasted my time for someone ungrateful.  I had this happen with someone recently who waited an whole year to tell me,  then acted like they were the ones in the right because I "didn't get the composition" and then had the gall to just block me when I offered to re-do it because I was "using tactics to guilt her". If said person is reading this, let me make this perfectly, crystal clear: I don't use tactics or anything of the like, I was just looking to see where I went wrong. I had OFFERED to re-draw the pic for you, a courtesy not a lot of people are willingly to make, and yet you kept making excuses that practically insulted me as an artist and spurred me even more when I'm essentially telling what not to do when going for commissions. Because trust me, there are FAR less lenient artists then I am out there and they won't be afraid to cuss you out if you pull that elitist crap. But if you wish to suffer the consequences for your attitude. Then hey, I wish your luck. You'll clearly need it.

I'm sorry for the rant, that just put me in a foul mood and I have little patience for idiots like that. Let's just get out with our days and I hope you all are doing well. Requests should be coming up soon, again sorry for the wait. Stay tuned. 

1: The cap is ten people, so first come first serve.
2: One drawing per person
3: One character limit
4: No backgrounds.
5: Have a ref at the ready please. 
6: You can ask for a specific pose if you want. 
7: I'll get em done as soon as I can. Still got a few commissions to do as well. But they will be done. Just please don't rush me or pester me. 

Unlike last time, I am willing to color. But it won't be shaded, sorry. You want that gotta commission me or go for an art trade. One of the two.

That said, again not much going on. Life goes on usual for me, with just trying to keep busy, con season about to hit into full gear this month and of course the summer season being right around the corner...rather early this year too. Seriously Easter is the first of next month (along with April Fools...hmm) as well as the premiere of Avengers Infinity War. Just...yeesh I really got caught off guard this time. Heh but hey roll with the punches neh?

In any case, hope you all are doing well as the seasons shift around the world. Stay positive and stay golden ^_^.

Welp another year down, another year ahead of us. 2017 was certainly a quite interesting one I must say. A year of a lot of changes from political to pop culture, very transitional. But I feel that was just the tip of the iceburg and more is to come. Hopefully for the best but least it wasn't too rough like '16 was. On my end, not much has changed, though I feel like I've improved on my art a bit. I really should get back to comics soon, I feel I didn't do enough of them last year and with a lot of webcomics I read celebrating milestones...yeah. Still though, to those that watch me, thanks for all you support.

So what am I looking forward to?

Games: New Spider-Man, New God of War, Shadow of Colossus remake. Blazblue Cross Tag, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Bayonetta 3, Last of Us 2 and any other surprises on the horizon.

Movies: Black Panther, Avengers Infnity War. Ready Player One, Deadpool 2, Incredibles 2, Hotel Transylvania 3, Wreck It Ralph 2, Possibly New Mutants, The upcoming Spider-Man animated flick, oh yeah and the new animated Grinch movie (Sheesh 13 years since the Live action one, feel old yet?).

Anime: One Punch Man S2, My Hero Academia S3, return of FLCL and Fairy Tail Final Season

Comics: New IDW Sonic comics (already a bit weary though since Ian Flynn announced none of the original characters from the Archie series were going to return so...hmmm)

And much, much more. I know it's a worrying time these days but keep a positive attitude and stay good to one another, that the best defense for the incoming craziness. Here's to a New Year and new experiences. Stay golden, folks!

Woof, forgot about the December journal.

Really not much to report though, my little sis is graduating from Nursing school this month and going on to become a full fledged nurse \^0^/. So congrats to her on getting her Bachelors. Will be out of town on the weekend of 15-17 for her graduation. So I may not respond if you're trying to reach me.

The second part of the Star Wars new trilogy comes out soon, looking forward to that. I really enjoyed Force Awakens, though I do wish people would stop complaining about it being similar to the first Star Wars (or Ep 4 if you wanna get technical). It wasn't a shot for shot one of the movie and I kinda think the similarity was the whole point. You know, history repeating? But we'll see how this new entry does if that warrants the complaints.

Been getting into Archer lately, first five seasons are pretty cool, sixth though, not really doing it for me. I think they went back to basics a little too soon for my taste and the whole working for the CIA plotline just feels meh. The premise works better when the cast are more on their own really (Animation gotten better though). But hey, still got two more to go before I reach where the show is at currently. Maybe it'll get better.

Art-wise, got some Secret Santas to do, as well as some commissions (those are still going on by the way, check the details below if you want one) as well as some end of the year art to do as well.  So least I'm keeping busy for the holidays. Overall, yeah that pretty much my holiday plannings. Hope you're holiday season is going well and yeah a Happy Holidays to wherever you are. Stay gold and stay safe. Santa :la:

So here we are, November, pretty much the halfway point of the holidays and where we celebrate the discovery of America (least on my end, if you're outside the country, this'll probably be just another month to ya). Not really much to say, I might do some requests to keep my drawing skills sharp if things don't get too hectic on my end. So stay tuned for that and of course signing up for Secret Santas.

And..yeah that's about it, just getting through this month and next, of which my little sis will be graduating from Nursing school. So a congrats to her! For everyone else, hope your enjoying the build up to the holidays. If you're in the U.S Winter break will soon be upon us. For everyone else, almost to the end of the year. Either way, hang in there and stay safe till then! ;)

Welp summer was fun, granted I got stymied in my goal in it (to get some money to fix my car) but it was enjoyable nonetheless, the heat notwithstanding. And thus we head into the final months of the year as the holiday season starts to wind up. Already I'm seeing decorations for Halloween being put up as well as Christmas and the toy commercials are starting to pop up more as well. So yeah, won't be long fore we get our scares and hollys on. Can't wait ^_^.

Requests [CLOSED]Hello! I've decided to start another round of art requests*. Considering that I'll be starting school next month, this may be the last request in a loooonnng while. Maybe I'll have another round in early September, but it's highly unlikely. Now to get back to the point: art requests. I will be choosing three art requests to do. Key word: choosing. Just follow the three simple steps below for your chance. Please read all the instructions carefully before sending me a whole bunch of notes. I just need one note per person. 
To request art:


Step 1)    Create a journal post mentioning my account (say something like "mochosum is doing free art requests! Check it out!")

Step 2)    Send me a note including your request, reference pictures and a link to your journal post (as specified above in step 1)

Step 3)    Now we wait. Aft

* Chester Bennington
Geez suicide, apparently in response to Chris Cornell's death (likewise suicide). That's always a shame and I always state that is never the answer to deal with depression, there's always something to live for. Wasn't a major fan of Linkin Park but there were some great songs I do have on my MP3 lists. Hope you find peace, my friend.

* June Foray
variety.com/2017/tv/people-new…. Recently passed away at the age of 99. I pretty much grew up on her voice in the 90s and, like Alan before her, she was a trooper who kept acting to the end when she could (the last I remember hearing her was in Flapjack where she voiced an old woman leaving in Bubbe belly). Thanks so much for everything June and rest in peace.
Got a major burst of energy for a bit and decided to put it to some use. So yeah time for requests. But as a certain song goes: "We have some rules to follow".

* I'll only take 10 though. So first come, first serve.
* Only one character
* It'll be lineart only
* Will be a bust drawing.
* Having a reference REALLY helps.

So respond to this journal and have at it.

UPDATE: And it's done! All ten requests have been completed! Thanks to all who participated! You guys rock! ^_^

WHY?
Hey guys! Mostly for fun. I want to get back into drawing. I'm really struggling for a specific purpose. I want to practice drawing different people, and I'd like more things to post on my Instagram   daily. It's also been a year since I did this and I'd like the chance to give back to my watchers/friends and interact more again.
I MAY CHOOSE MORE THAN ONE A DAY.

For one month, I am going to pick one request each day. This begins June 13, 20

Well with the Spring season in full swing down here and I feel refreshed enough to try to draw some comics. I decided on a coin flip what to work on and it came up on Monstra's side. If you don't remember, it's this comic here [retro7.deviantart.com/gallery/…. A good online friend of mine, :iconasukki-chan:, did some coloring of the first few pages. So hopefully if I don't get too busy, I'll to upload them plus some new content. At the very least try to finish up the the first story I had planned.

That said, wish me luck and stay tuned.
Woot! Finally out of the coldness of winter! Let the warm weather begin!
Alright I can breathe again. =D But still a little sluggish, getting there though. If I owe you a drawing, don't worry, I'm still working on them. Plan to try to upload this them weekend barring any other interruptions. Hope you lots' first foray into this year is going a lot smoother then mine =P.
Yeah got a nasty cold. Such is the way of being caught up in weather changes as we getting through the last of winter. Bleh.
Woot, finally. We got another service and they finally installed the wifi today. So were back up and running. I should have some artwork up pretty soon, so hang tight! ;)
Yeah our internet in a bit of flux at the moment. I can get on Skype and Youtube (for some odd reason) but that's about it. So most of what I'm typing and what not is from a library computer for the time being. So that's why any replies have been a little slow. Sorry for that, hopefully I'll be back on the regular net soon. Art trades are still gonna come, so if you're waiting for those, I haven't forgotten ya. Just be patient with me, please.
And thus 2016 closes out. Not one of the most memorable years I know but amidst of all the cries of "Worst Year Ever", folks seem to forget there was still good within. Cubs won a World Series (heh, a year off from BttF 2 prediction but hey it came true at least), Leo finally got himself an Oscar, Dallas Cowboys finally started getting out of their slump, we got some awesome movies like Zootopia, Civil War, Finding Dory, Dr. Strange, Moana and Rouge One. Fantastic games like Uncharted 4, FNAF Sister Location, Watch_Dog 2 , Street Fighter V and Overwatch to name a few. DC Rebirth and ANAD Marvel is finally making comics interesting again. Shows like Steven Universe, Star vs the Forces of Evil, My Hero Academia, and the Loud House are going strong and the job market is plentiful and stable. On a personal note, I improved my drawing skill, took part in an OCT, and made some new artist friends to boot.

Yeah I know, the political side of this year was rubbish, some promises in the gaming world turned out to be not up to expectations and we lost so many great recognizable faces. But the world keeps spinning and we'll carry on. While I'm worried for what's ahead, I'll keep a positive face and try to be ready for what comes my way. It's only bad if you feel there's nothing to do about it. But if you can, there's always a chance it'll be better. So please, don't lose your way cause now, more then ever, we all need to band together.

That said what I'm looking forward to in 2017:

Movies:
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Spider-Man Homecoming (Very excited for this one), Fate of the Furious (ugh I hate that title tho), Star Wars Ep 8, Justice League (somewhat, Batman v Superman didn't exactly get me excited for it, but we'll see), Wonder Woman (This character though was one of the better things about BvS, so hopefully her stand alone movie will work), The Lego Batman Movie (even though I wanted a sequel to the first Lego movie, I suppose this could be good), Cars 3 (Yes I liked the first two movies, shut up), Aliens Convent (PLEASE be better than Prometheus), and Thor Ragnarok (Finally, I've been waiting for this one)

Video Games:
Resident Evil 7 {I'll be frank, I liked 6 and thought that was pretty fun, but do find the style shift of this one intriguing), Injustice 2, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, Sonic Mania (New retro Sonic, oooh yeah) and the upcoming unnamed Sonic game, South Park Fracture But Whole, Yooka-Laylee (Got a dud in Mighty No 9 and winner in Half Genie Hero of the Kickstarter three, so here's hoping this one knocks it out of the park), Crash Remastered, Red Dead Redemption 2 (I got the first game last year and love it, just hope this one has more content) and Cuphead (REALLY waiting for this one. Please don't take too long).

Shows:
Continuing Star vs Evil, Steven Universe and Loud House. On the new side, the Big Hero 6 series, Ducktales reboot, Tangled the Series (yes really), more Flash and whatever new shows that come down the pipe I'm forgetting about.

Resolutions:
Not much same as last year. Get better in art, make some money and hopefully get a book off the ground. I'm really getting too old not to make this a reality at this point. So I really should get cracking.

And that'll do it. Nothing left to do but wish you all a Happy 2017 and may it be better then the previous year. Stay safe and stay awesome!
