Quick Commissions closed

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 9, 2011, 3:24 PM


:bulletgreen:Temporary Commission info.

Cell shading only, no background scenery (colour gradients, lighting or textured effects and a very mild background are fine)

Preferably between 1 - 3 characters per image.

:bulletgreen:Commission rules

No point commissions, I will except paypal only ( in American currency )

I will not begin your commission until I have received a deposit, I will do the sketch once this is payed. Once the sketch has been approved you will pay the second half and I will begin colouring. Once colouring begins no large changes can be made only tweaking the colour and touching up on small features. This is because big changes after colouring are difficult and can require me to completely redraw the picture which isn't fair on me since it should have been sorted out during the sketching stage.

You can also pay full upfront if you want to

Please don't be shy in telling me if you want tweaking or changes, its your right to have your commission the way you want it.

Any special features d.g weapons, jewelry

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 5, 2011, 11:19 PM


I don't usually care or say anything about this particular topic but I've noticed an increase of people bawwwing to me about how they don't like my art and don't think it should be on the front page?

You don't have to like my art? and I don't mind. But a stranger insulting someone over the internet is hardly anything to get worked up about ;)

Seems you just can't please everyone? right? :iconkakapoplz:
( little piece of trivia...the little green bird ( kakapo ) is from NZ :giggle: )

And apparently I'm a Tite kubo ripoff ( I've heard this quite a lot ) I shall take it as a compliment, Kubo is one of my favorite artists!

That aside! I hope my laptop will be working soon! then I can draw when I'm at Uni! and I will be at Overload this year! if your in Auckland and going, come say Hi!

And does anyone know how to make plushies? I wanted to make artblock plushies but it dawned on me that I would have to do it myself and sewing is not exacly my strong point?

Also I asked a while back for suggestions since I was making prints and thankyou for all those who contributed and I'll be making some different fanarts from different animes/mangas ^^! But I also wanted to do some more bleach stuff ... my ideas are stale and boring, If you can think of anything baddass, funny etc that is Bleach related feel free to drop a suggestion! ==)

A very very big  thank-you to everyone who donated to help those down in Christchurch! I still encourage you to spread the message if you can to continue to help those in need !

Another thank-you for the 25k watchers! =) I will be starting Uni soon so I may not be on here often anymore, though I'm still planning on reopening commissions soon.

EarthQuake!

Mon Feb 21, 2011, 6:01 PM



I just flicked on the TV and there is a breaking news report from down in Christchurch, there has been another huge earth quake just before 1:00 Pm this afternoon and sadly unlike the September earthquake, there have been reports of multiple fatalities, and more reports of aftershocks are still coming in.

The earthquake wasn't as big as the September one , measuring about 6.3 on the Richter scale but it was very shallow (5km deep near the city center) and caused severe damage to the already damaged building along with liquefaction of the ground.

This report from the NZ herald was just released 9min ago www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/art…

Suggestions please!

Mon Feb 21, 2011, 2:09 AM



This will be one of the few times I will ask for suggestions for characters from other mangas, I'm getting a table at Overload 2011 so I need to broaden my stuff a bit wider than just Naruto and Bleach.

Typically my manga/anime scope is rather narrow so if you can suggest some popular manga/anime/game characters I will be happy! I'm gonna make buttons and key chains and posters...was also wondering if I should try making some art-block plushies???

I tried to make a little video on my gradient overlay since people are still asking me how i do it? but the video quality turned out terrible .... and the colours...there so damn pink/orange....

My hyper-cam sucks
