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 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.

My fansub group finally got to Tougen no Fue! Time for some Jabi and Rekka while I await more Raiga and maybe better Ryuuga *shudders*

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.
