Today's Random Subject - Conventions + Leaving dA

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 9, 2015, 9:24 AM


Hey there, dA viewers. Sorry if I didn't update my dA Journal for a very long time, but this has going through my head for a long time, so I'm going to say it in list form or whatever.

Convention Visits

Bad News: Unfortunately, I'm on the Reserved List for this year's Thought Bubble Festival and that means, you're not going to see sell some stuff and tat any time soon. So much for visiting Leeds. However...yeaef="mancstercon.wordpress.com/">Mancstercon at MediaCity UK in Salford. Well, more like the MediaCity UK University of Salford's campus, but whatever. And yes, I'll be selling the RSBD comics, tat and some lovely prints, mostly beautfiul inked Greyscale illustrations of Xillia 2. And I'm also going to accept commissions and you can also collect your own personalised print in Mancstercon as well. I'll be putting some more info soon.

Leaving deviantART

This has been a very difficult time for me since I first started my dA account back in 2005, but after 10 years of being active and non-active (thanks Tumblr and Pixiv) on this site, I feel like I should close down my dA account. I know this will mean that a whole collection of my stuff since 2005 will be lost forever, but it seems that whenever I look at my pre-2010 stuff, I felt strange to see how my art style had evolved from copy-cat my favourite artists to making a mark on my own, i.e. my own art style. And a bit uncomfortable on how I went from manga/anime-obsessed to something a bit more obscure. If you want to have a look at my own artwork, now is the best time to take a closer look before I delete everything but the cosplay photos and such. Those will stay.

And on the bittersweeter side, I'm going to publish my last poll as I felt that it just wasn't worth my subscription fee again since only one member was willing to pay for it (and that I'm just about to start my freelance business that would rely on donation just to keep continuing on what I love). This time, it's based on the doodles from Tales of Xillia 2, which is probably the only Tales game that I actually enjoyed and like so far (Xillia 1, not so much but I still like it); whereas Symphonia kinda stained my view on the entire Tales series in general.

Chibi Commissions OPEN

Yep, the Watercolour/Inked Chibi Commissions are now open for business. The Black and White or Greyscale costs £15 and the Watercolour ones cost £30 (hey, those water-soluble inked pencils aren't that cheap to replace once supplies run dry) and both of them can take either only two hours or half-day depending on the details and a number of rough sketches before the final design can take place and it has the commissioners' approval. And the best part? You can either have your commission delivered by post (Postage and Packaging is inclusive so no need to buy an extra amount) or you can have them digitally and print your own in high quality CYMK 300dpi (colour) 600dpi (greyscale) resolution on PDF format. Both of them will be in A5 sized, portrait or landscape. I'll post more information and terms and conditions later, but for now if you have any queries please don't hesitate and ask me straight away.

That's all for now. I'll probably put a Patreon page in the future.

Why not see my info below. I can't be arsed to tell you here.

A Fine Art Graduate who ironically draws more stuff than making some crap installation stuff. Currently pondering on whether to choose be a freelance illustrator or a graphic novel artist while trying to find a good job, though now considering making myself one as my own boss, since the Job Centre and S**t** are f'ing useless now.

If you like my work and want to get my artwork, I'm considering on giving you the readers the chance to grab on hold on the extremely limited free artcards that I've made for any donations made to me [i.e. coming as soon as I sort these things out with PayPal and such]. In the meantime, click on the 'Pleae Donate to Sho-saka' link below if you're willing to see my work more. The donations will then be proceeded by buying some more art materials, getting the dA membership constantly on Prenimum and finally getting the Red Saints Blue Devils site its own domain site.

LAST POLL: I've just drawn some lovely Greyscale Inked Fanart Pieces based on Tales of Xillia 2. Which character(s) would you like to see when I post them on my Twitter in terms of how many votes will put them in chronological order?

Ii Tiger and Cub by Sho-saka
Ii Tiger and Cub

It's Mothering Sunday yet again and to celebrate and what better way to do it is by posting the Ii Adopted-Mum-and-Son duo...as literal tigers.

OK, so the tiger purists are going to complain I haven't got their anatomy stuff right, but who cares?

BTW, if you want to see the version without the logo, I've put it on my Pixiv page for you to see. Happy Mother's Day and enjoy.

IMPORTANT NOTICE and Link Stuff

Because I don't have a lot of time releasing some more strips of Red Saints Blue Devils and do some more pictures than I should have, due to trying to find a decent part-time job so that I could finally fund it for a domain name of the site, I'm relying on you to keep the webcomic series and its first print publications alive. I'm really in a desperate of donations from you, because if you give me some money, I'll do the following:

- Getting the RSBD mini volume self-published as a 1st print run (thinking of 50 - 100 copies as a test). That means no middleman would come and stop me doing what I'm not supposed to do. Which means total creative freedom. And then thinking about releasing more comics in more ambitious ways than one.
- Go to as many comic conventions in the UK as I can. From MCM Expo [Manchester, London, Telford, etc] through to Thought Bubble Comic Con in Leeds and beyond, so that I could finally be there as an exhibitor, selling my own comics and products, as well as thanking/urging you to visit the RSBD site. Can't go overseas, but I'm thinking about that.



Lovely Links

My Pixiv Account
I'm crap at fluent Japanese, sorry Japanese Pixiv members. Though you're welcome to 'bookmark' me, if you want.

My Twitter Account
Though I won't accept requests from strangers that wants me to follow him/her/it/them, as I only accept those who know me personally and/or know him/her/it/them for a long time.

Red Saints Blue Devils
Red Saints Blue Devils
Webcomic that I'm starting and it all involves Saints and Demons (along with a Human) getting along very well. Okay, maybe except with a few arguments or more.

Red Saints Blue Devils Official Fansite
Want to showcase your artistic talents on the RSBD characters, whether it's in literature, art, cosplay, etc? Now's your chance to showcase it in the Official Fansite. Just don't send in the Rule 34 stuff, please.

Sho-saka's Tsundere Fanart Stuff - Exactly what it says on the tin or something. This is where I post mostly fanart pieces that I love, but refuses to tell you, due to the fact I've been trying my hardest, to knock those fangirlism feelings that everyone else seems to actively show their fondness of their fandom. Me, I go the other way.

Cosplayers Community Site Cure
My CureCos Account
Yes, I do cosplay on occassional times. But only if someone invites me to their cosplay meet (UK only, sorry) and/or when it comes to conventions (e.g. Thought Bubble and MCM Expo).

My Cosplay Island Account
Yes, I've finally got a Cosplay Island account, so now you can see the costumes that I've made over here, as well as looking at a few costume previews that I'm going to do.

My Formspring Account - If you've got any questions about me or something, please go ahead and ask me anything...as long as it's witty and not something to do with rude, trolling comments on why my art style sucks and how come I prefer Cutie Honey and those 'So-bad-it's-good' Magical Girl Shows (at least, the live action ones) aimed at adults instead of that Sailor Moon crap.

ALL those Garo annoucements! Not so excited about Ryuga making a comeback, but I do like Rianès newer more mature look. Plus more Raiga goodness, and MAYBE Kouga and Kaoru return? *Head canon at work*

Speaking of Toku, you a fan of the Metal Heroes? Sharivan the Next was awesome, I didn't expect any less and Sakamoto blew me away!

Just finished the first ep of Hnk. IT definitely does the series justice. Spares no corners in it's content and clear its Amemiya, might be too gory for mainstreamers and I like that. Plus a completely different rendition of the Garo armor then what we've seen in the main series.
