Yooo guys. 

So, I haven't been very active on DA. Obviously. Honestly, I think I just lost interest in the site. Gonna try to change that and post here more often. Even though I haven't been active on here, I have been active literally everywhere else lol so if you've been missing me, check out my Instagram ( @ _reymenn ) or my Twitter ( @ _reymenn ) . On a more exciting note though I am here to plug 2 things. I recently started a series on Youtube called Redesigning Pokemon I Don't Like which I really think you guys will like. Aside from that, i'm going to try to get a giveaway together EXCLUSIVELY for my DA fam, so keep an eye out for that.

I'll probably clean out my gallery before I post new stuff. Changes are coming. Feels good to be back.

Hey guys!

Just a quick journal. A good friend of mine, Laurelman needs YOUR help!

Check out this link:…
and please vote for his web comic, "Courage Under Fire". 

"A night of simple fun and excitement turns into a pivotal moment in seven youth's lives, when a meteor changes its course and heads towards them. After the crash, one by one the kids begin to exhibit strange powers & fall prey to a hubristic corruption which turns them against each other. They learn that the only way to reverse this corruption is contact with ancient emblems, which will release them from the corruption/control of a great unseen evil, or they will be sacrificed to it."

I'm halfway through the first part and it's a great read!

As a bonus, every voter (that lets Laurel know) will have their name put into a raffle that he's hosting! So why not have a good read and a chance at some cool prizes? Check out more info here: Laurelman 

Keep it real, ya'll

Yo guys! Hope you're doing well!

So, for the past couple of months i've been trying to come up with an idea for an app game. I recently had something that I could work and want to move forward with. The problem is I have absolutely no knowledge of coding or where to start with it. I'm asking for help. I want to make a team of 10-12 people (Will expand if needed) with various abilities. I need Artists, Coders, Scriptwriters, Beta Testers, and plenty of open minds. Now, I understand that a lot of us our students and/or work, so your time is extremely valuable. I understand that. I don't want to waste your time. I would appreciate any help that I can get, and will try to compensate you as much as I possibly can. Speaking of compensation. Again, I know we are all students and busy. I know a lot of us are struggling to make ends meet (including myself), so I can't pay you. If you join the team and decide to leave solely because of monetary reasons, I completely understand. Again, I do NOT want you to feel like you're wasting your time. Thank you guys again for all the support and all the love! 

Please, if you're interested, note me. Take care and as always, Stay Kawaii~

Hey guys! I hope everyone has been doing well! I haven't really been as active as I usually am, due to school and stuff. It's looking like i'l only be able to get 1 piece a week out for the moment, but that schedule is definitely tentative! 

For the past couple of months, johntyronne and I have been working on some awesome Fakemon designs together and we'll be releasing them soon, so keep an eye out for that Fakemon lovers! :) With that project out of the way (along with the Four Horseman project) it'll leave me with a bit more time so;

Commissions are OPEN.

 There's a catch though. For the time being, I will only be doing FUSEMON commissions. I have been wanting to practice my painting a bit more, so i'm gonna try to focus on that some more. Commission will be $5 for every Pokemon and that is a flat rate, so if you want 2 pokemon, it'll be $10, 3 is $15, and so on. Limit is 5 Pokemon per fusion. I will have 6 slots open, so please shoot me a note if you want one! 

 I also made a Patreon! :) So you guys can support me there as well! I actually have absolutely no idea how it works yet, but i'm working on that lol. Patreon donators will have access to unreleased content such as sketches, designs, and other cool things, so check it out at ! If you know how Patreon works, help me out haha.

Last update! Sorry for it being this long, but I haven't talked to you guys in forever! 

I have about 60-80 unused Pokemon TCG code cards just laying around. I was initially going to sell them, but I figured I could try hosting a contest and have that as a prize. So, are you a Pokemon TCG and would you be interested in a contest? Let me know what you think on the comments!

Thank you guys for all you already do, it means alot! I hope you guys have an awesome day/night and Stay Kawaii!~

Progress is progress, whether it takes a day or a year

YYYAASSSSSSYAASSSSSSSSSS I DID IT! I got 50 Watchers. lol. that makes me extremely happy. Thanks everyone!

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? 4 years since last month! Really only active the past year and a half though.

  2. What does your username mean? Literally, an abbreviation of my name. Figuratively, a more improved version of myself (if that makes sense?) and how I interpret art. lol

  3. Describe yourself in three words. I always try.

  4. Are you left or right handed? Right!

  5. What was your first deviation? Dang haha I don't have it anymore, but it was a (poorly drawn) sketch of Charizard.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Digital and traditional ink.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Definitely painting, whether it be digital or traditional.

  8. What was your first favourite? idk, let's check .... Desert Crocodiles

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Mostly digital painting.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Ha! That's a hard one. Probably either TOKIYA-SAKUBA or CoranKizerStone 

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? Honestly same as previous question lol

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? That's also a funny question haha. Um, when I first started uploading art, they were a bunch of scans of fakemon I drew. Nothing crazy, just pencil lineart. Well, at some point, a deviant (troll) favorited all of my pieces and labeled the folder "Art that should never exist" and that literally brought me to tears. At that point, I figured I was gonna work harder to never feel that talentless again.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? Definitely mechanical pencils. Wacom Tablet

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Honestly my room

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? hm,  I guess a couple days ago. Ya'll blew up my views for no reason and I freaked out lol but it was an extremely pleasant surprise and I can't thank you guys enough for checking out my page. <3

  16. BONUS: Who has the best Watchers on DeviantArt? ME. I DO.

Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well! 

If you've been following my page, I apologize for being so inactive. My job has been demanding alot of me and I (obviously) need the money. I've had a couple commissions just lingering for the past couple of weeks and I still haven't found time to finish them. For the time being, COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED. I apologize again. To those of you who have already had commissions by me that have not been started yet, i've sent you a note and some points for compensation. I believe I've gotten most of the ones I needed to, but if you have a pending commission from me and have yet to receive and update, please note me. I'm only keeping the few commissions i've already started on so that I can finish them out. Again, if it's been a while since you've heard from e about your commission, NOTE ME

Thank you again guys for all the support. It means the world to me that you've chosen me to portray your vision, and I hope i've done it justice. Hopefully in a couple weeks between now and school, i'll be able to clear up my schedule and eventually open up commissions again! 

Take care and as always, Stay Kawaii!~

Hey everyone! I hope you've been doing well! I know I have (insert dead,fake smile here) with school being so great! lol. Well, this is something that i've been meaning to do for a while, and that's a feature for unknown/underappreciated artists. Every month i'm gonna choose 1 and basically give them some well deserved spotlight. Let me know if you or someone else deserves a Kawaii Feature of the Month!

Anyway, let's get to it! I've recently been directed to Penguwin and his project, "Capumon". 

What is it? WELL TAKE A LOOK!

GRINNING GHOST (sample) by Penguwin RAGE DRAGON (sample) by Penguwin

These hats/snapbacks are custom made. As of now, there are only 4 designs (Grinning Ghost,Rage Dragon, Cross Robot, and Spirit Slasher) that are in the process of being made. These are samples of @Penguwins work and with YOUR help, more can be on the way! If you love fashion AND Pokemon, check out the link below! I myself am going to invest in one, so let me know if you are too! 


Artist DA page:

Congrats again for the feature Penguwin and to everyone out there reading this, Stay Kawaii!~

Hey guys! I just finished making a speedpaint video
and it would mean the world to me if you could check it out and give
me some tips!
(i'm a horrible video editor)


Thanks again! You're awesome and Stay Kawaii~

Hey guys!

First off, I hope everyone had an awesome new year! The rest of this is mushy, so you can totally skip, idc.

 2014 held alot of crazy moments. Most importantly, two deaths in my family. One of my Uncle's got jumped while he was on patrol this past march. He was on patrol about 5 hours away from home, and we never found out who did it, so this Christmas and New Year's Day were pretty hard on my family, as it was the first one without him. Another death was that of my to-be Cousin. He was about my age and was dating my blood cousin for a while. He and I worked in the same oil rig site, but I had left before he came in. At some point, the machinery malfunctioned and electrocuted him, killing him on the spot. All the while, my cousin was pregnant with his child. Thinking about it during New Year and Christmas kept me up (alot) and it made me realize how thankful I am for everyone I know. So, if any of you guys lost anyone this past year, I send my sincerest condolences and prayers. 

Anyway, on a brighter note, this past August I had come back to Dev after a huge hiatus. I came back to see 200+ deviations with no more than 20 favorites collectively and 48 Watchers. At that point, I had two choices. Delete my account and move on, or roll my sleeves back and get to work. If you've been following me for a while, you might have noticed that I changed my name from "Monochrome46" to who I am now, rey-menn. That's who I want to be. I am immensely proud to say that I know stand here with 275 Watchers, and honestly, I love everyone of you guys. I am grateful for everything you guys do for me. You guys push me to think outside the box, to push my boundaries, and to become better than I was the day before. So, from the bottom of my heart, Thank you. I owe everything I am to you guys, because you guys are the ones that chose me. I hope to keep providing you guys with some awesome art and keep chatting it up with you. Thank you guys.
Man, this was reallly fun. Well, after a weekend of thorough judging. we have some results. Before I go into that, I want to thank the contestants for making my first contest awesome!


Again, thank you guys. You guys did an amazing job with the contest and followed rules to the tee. I hope that your pieces were as inspired as I am. You guys did amazing!


SECOND PLACE goes to rizegreymon22  ! Congrats! Your work was great, and we could tell that you really did your research with all the different facial expressions, almost as if they originally belong in that style. Great job!

                                                     Pokemon design contest entry by rizegreymon22

FIRST PLACE GOES TO schnukimund ! Congratulations! Your work was great! We really liked yours because it seemed to take the theme a little farther than we originally thought. You gave us a great rendtition of a realistic Torchic, then, on the completely opposite sde of the spectrum, you hand-drew the pixelated sprite. There was more of a gap between styles, and that helped you out. Congratulations!

                                                     (CONTEST ENTRY) Torchic by schnukimund

SO, let's talk prizes for you guys. I've already distributed the points. First place winner gets 50 points, a free commission from me, and if your lookin' to get your TCG game goin, talk to TheDilophoraptor , who very genuinely offered 5 online Pokemon TCG codes. Thank you, Dilo! Please PM him for deets.

Second place was actually not initially part of the contest. I'm a "One winner" kind of guy, but I couldn't go through this contest only rewarding one person. All of you did a great job and it was a really challenging (and fun) judging process. Our guest judge, Laurelman  and I had a great time judging such awesome pieces. ANYWAY, I have awarded 25 points to second place!

Before we finish off, THANK YOU GUYS! You guys did great and I look forward to seeing your art all over DA. I also want to give Grimsteel555 an honorable mention.

Dude, I REALLY liked your piece. Like, genuinely. It was fun, inspired, and immediately brought a smile to my face. I read on your description that this was your first contest, and though you didn't place, I hope with all my energy that you aspire to become better and join more contests. 
YAASSSSSSSSSS I DID IT! I got 50 Watchers. lol. that makes me extremely happy. Thanks everyone!
