Deer DeviantART people,

Here's an updated info on commissions.
Not that different from last year's, but I don't know how to bring it to the front :stupidme:

I often do things like:
- Character art; fantasy, scifi, for things like book covers and TCG.
- sexy pin-up, superheroes, couples.
- if you're in Jakarta (Indonesia), I also accept small to medium tattooing.
**update: maybe subtle Yaoi/Yuri, Gore, vore, peril are acceptable.

However, i will NOT accept:
- non-artistic porn nude, blatant hentai, hardcore thangs
(I love sexy pin-up revealing characters, but not for the sake of porn plz)
- Drawing people's likeness. Honestly I'm not looking forward to draw your face and put it on Leonidas' body ARGH please no... Disbelief  Using a celebrity as the base model is okay, however.
- Children whimsical illustration. Because it's too depressing for me.
- Caricatures.

A lot of artists conceal their prices for some reason. I really don't know why, but I'll follow the trend anyway, so please note me for my prices.
If you're curious, I can tell you that it starts from $220 for portraits/bust illustration.
I'm quite flexible in terms of my workload i.e. if I think the illustration is too simple for the amount you're paying, i might give you a hefty discount ;)
I always do transactions via Paypal. Most of the time I ask new commissioners for a 50% down payment to initiate work, but please do that only after I started working on yours. Think of it as a gesture of goodwill. You may pay the rest after I'm done. Recurring commissioners don't need to do this, and can pay in full after I'm done. Note that I'm sending the print file only after I received the payment.

I can only handle so many commissions per month.
I have a new tattooing hobby, it further crams my schedule, so I hope you have a flexible deadline. Just ask me if you need something in a hurry.
Once you ask and I accept, I WILL do it, you have my word. It's just a matter of time Ashamed 

 = Further instructions =
Send me your descriptions on Note or my e-mail:
with references (it can be photos, or even your own drawings! don't worry, I will only laugh at it in secret :rofl:)
and most importantly, your canvas dimension / size, resolution, and any unsafe areas, if any.
If you have no preference, I'll just do a 30 x 45" poster, which is a standard DA Print size. It's more than enough for most people. Let me know if you need special treatment on each layers (some wants full background, or full characters so they can make cut-outs). By default, I am too lazy will not do it, so you have to mention it. No extra charge :) (Smile)

I'm generally shy, but I don't mind if you wanna ask about anything! you can Note me here follow my daily activities here:
- Facebook (
- Instagram (
- Instagram for tattoos (

Happy holidays! Party

12th of May

Your Title - version 2.0


I would like to tell you a story. Something I don't normally share publicly before.

15 years ago today (12th May 2002), I was the happiest boy around. I went on my first date ever, first time holding hands with a girl, first hug, and of course; first kiss! I'm sure most of you know what it felt like the first time around; Exciting and unforgettable! But then 6 months later, she died of a chronic illness.

I was sad, sure, but the thing is, I made a series of stupid mistakes prior to her death and thus, I was left with guilt. Apparently, the feeling of regret eats you up from the inside a LOT more than loss or sadness. It broke me. I was clinically depressed for a few years after that, emotionally unstable and socially awkward. The problem was nobody around me knew the symptoms. East-Asian culture is weird at that. They think all psychiatric patients are the same: crazy, screwed and need to be locked up in a mental hospital. No wonder there are a lot of stressed people here who don't seek help. They expect you to just swallow it, forget it. Easy.

And that's what I did. I hid behind smiles and jokes. But I was hanging by a thread there. One emotionally frustrating situation, I could flip like a crazy dog. Ugh. Not my proudest moment.

In case you're wondering, my family was never in a position to help, because it's kinda broken as well. And my mum made me aware the extent of the damage the SAME YEAR that this whole thing happened, like a one-two punch to my mental health at the time.


Not until years later that I learn a bit of things about psychology that I can finally recognise what it was. So many years wasted with alcohol, a bit of drugs, but I got better since then. Now my smiles and jokes are genuine, not a mask! I find a lot of things that makes me feel better like art, music instruments, and lately; tattooing and fitness. I declare myself cured of it, but like all wounds, it left a scar.

I'm never the same person since then. I find myself more aware to people's state of mind, including myself. Everything is more amplified now. When I'm happy, I cherish the moment. But I'm more prone to become super sad too. not the tough guy I used to be, but  that is not completely a bad thing, I think.

Last month, I have also just lost a dear friend, again, out of a disease. But this time, I have no guilt, just sadness. To think that I always talk to her about everything..

And don't get me started on this political ridiculousness in Indonesia. It's so absurd, it made it to international news. I have these rules about talking about politics and religion online, because it breeds hate. Let's just say that the situation makes half the country really sad.

However, there is this girl I met here on DeviantART (of all places!) :love: I'd like to think she gives me this extra strength and positive energy, even if she replies soooooo sloooooowwww...
I hope I can meet her one day ^_^

Thank you for reading something unimportant such as this. It's quite a big deal for me to write this (don't know where else to write, I don't have a blog. Facebook is filled with cat videos now. Nobody there cares anymore).
Every 12th of May each year I think about this heavily, but it's been so long, I think it's time I need to be more open about it, like what psychologists would recommend. C'est la vie. Let it be an experience to let me be a better person.

I need a hug :(
