Fave artworks from my friends and other artists


Fall-sit by Nachooz
by Nachooz

I'm amazed that you drew all of these frame by frame (even the still parts/moments were drawn repeatedly, if I'm not mistaken) I guess ...

Price Range (depending on detail)
Bust: $15-$25
Half body: $25-$40
Full body: $40-$60

with BG: additional $5-$30 (depending on the detail)

These are my usual prices. However, if character design is complicated enough, I would charge higher than the usual

Additional character: (depending on detail)
Only on a single canvas w/ BG
$10-$20- Bust
$20-$30 - Half body
$30-$40 - Full body

REMINDER: Additional characters (w/o interaction with other characters) done on the same transparent or plain white canvas, costs the same as the usual price range because they are as good as those done on a separate canvas

(Will still depend on the details of the character)


:bulletblue: PAYPAL ONLY
I only accept commission payments through Paypal (preferably in USD) Pay for them as "Goods or Services." Kindly pay the additional Paypal fees. To compute them (this fee calculation is only applicable when receiving $ in my country), click -> LINK

Message me some reference pictures, a few descriptions, and some additional pointers about your character.
(ALWAYS keep the words to a minimum)

If you have NO ready to draw reference of your character, you have to pay an additional $5-$20 for the designing/ conceptualization. (be it character, outfit, accessories etc.)
providing separate references (clothes, shoes, hair, eyes, etc) may lower the additional fee

:bulletblue: BACKGROUNDS?
Yes, I try my best to draw backgrounds, but not very complicated ones, please.
(add $5-$30 depending on detail)

:bulletblue: NO DEADLINES
I don't like being pressured please.

:bulletblue: FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE???
Though this is a first come first serve basis (in slots), it doesn't guarantee that I'll finish yours first than those in the list who are after you. It will all depend on how early you can pay after receiving the sketch. I will skip yours if you can't pay yet when the time to do so comes. I will move on to the next commissioner, and if they pay before you do, then I'll finish theirs first. Why? Coz I don't want to waste time as much as possible :)

Reservation of slots are NOT per commission piece, but per person (to give other people a chance for a slot). However, only a maximum of THREE pieces per slot. Those who fail to reply to me after 3 days (unless w/ a valid reason) will lose his/her reserved slot. (Yes, I will know if you have already read my sent note or not)

:bulletblue: RIGHT TO POST
I have the right to post the commissioned works here in my dA page. (Though it is also my choice if I don't want to post it).

Of course if the commission will be used for commercial purposes (advertisements/mass production of any kind) additional fees will be imposed. Same rules apply when asking for the raw file (.psd or .sai)

:bulletblue: MEDIAFIRE
I will upload the file through my mediafire account so you can download it from there. If you want it sent to your email instead, pls tell me in advance.

Please send the payment after I show you the sketch and as soon as you APPROVE of it for finalization. I don't like my efforts being wasted and then the commissioner suddenly backs out when I'm finished.

If you feel worried that I still haven't sent you the link please KEEP CALM XD I do not get to use the computer 24 hrs. a day, and we may be in different time zones. But I promise you that I will send you the link when I'm finished.

:bulletblue: BLACK LIST
I don't want to mention their names here, but I do have a list of those commissioners who did not pay, seen-zoning me when I ask for their commission details, never replied after receiving the sketch, and didn't even bother to at least tell me whether or not they will continue with the commission because of a valid reason. I'm so sorry (You know who you guys are), but I can no longer trust you, unless you can give me a good enough reason for your actions... :(

Here's a helpful tip on Commission etiquette

I DO...

Here is a list of my answers to frequent questions I get from people:

:bulletgreen: When did you start drawing digital?
I started drawing digital in late 2011. But I've been drawing as a hobby since childhood.

:bulletgreen: What programs/software do you use for drawing digital art?
I use Paint tool sai for drawing and coloring, and Photoshop for a few adjustments when finalizing the whole artwork.

:bulletgreen: Graphics tablet that you use?
Wacom Intuos Pro medium

:bulletgreen: Do you do art requests or art trades?
I don't do requests, unless I openly announce in public when I feel like it.
As for art trades, I'm not usually one to initiate coz I'm shy lol.
But if someone comes to me for art trade, I only accept those who are of the same
level of skill, but still depends on my mood.

:bulletgreen: Can you give some tips on designing OCs (Drawing-wise and Character-wise)?
I'm not into designing characters with too complicated outfit designs, but it
depends on my mood. A good tip I can say is to keep it simple and easy to remember
(especially when the OC is a main character)

Most characters in animes we watch have simple designs for them to retain in the minds
of the watchers. Make sure that when you turn your OC into a silhouette, it's
recognizable. You can also add a distinct feature or accessory like the usual anime
characters we know (Kenshin's scar, Hestia's boob ribbon, Yugi's wild and
multi-colored hair, etc).

ALSO! I make sure that my OC is more 'human' in terms of characteristics rather than
the usual anime character troupes (tsundere, kuudere, yandere, etc.)
Yes, I still incorporate those troupes to my OCs, BUT I make sure
that I observe human behavior and and attitude for a valid reason as to why my OC
acts, thinks, or behaves the way they are.

:bulletgreen: What are your favorite genre of animes/mangas?
I used to love shoujo slice of life mangas and animes, but I got tired of them.
I'm now into action-y types with lots of sword play! Yes! I'm into Japanese
historical animes and mangas ^^

:bulletgreen: Will you create a manga someday?
I really want to. I've always planned on creating one, but I am not yet confident
with my toning and inking skills. I'm also the type who doesn't continue what she
started, so I want to make sure that when I start a manga, I WILL stick to it until
the end (meaning, the whole story has to be already written from start to finish).


Guren x Izumi Hanakotoba Valentine's (2016) by Batusawa
Guren x Izumi Hanakotoba Valentine's (2016)
Well... Happy Valentine's day! ^^
The day itself isn't really necessary to show your love for your special someone... since it's something you can do everyday :)

Hanakotoba is the japanese language of flowers...
The Amaryllis flower means "shy"

Here's a little art of my OCs, Guren and Izumi-hime as to how they show their "love"... for each other...
Even though it's really a love-hate relationship XD

Kinda imagining the conversation to go like this:

Guren: Here... take it... *reluctant and shy*
Izumi: Where in hell did you get those? These aren't one of those poisoned plants, are they? *suspicious*
Guren: These are just something I picked up along the way! Want them or not?!
Izumi: So... what's the catch? *not convinced*
Guren: Just take the damn flowers!
I just hate it when somebody accuses me of tracing without any basis...

I already explained that my art is inspired from a well-known Otoge illustrator...

If you've nothing better to say but to point fingers at me without knowing how I work on my art, then it's best that you leave me be...
Sweep me off my feet (OC x Canon) by Batusawa
Sweep me off my feet (OC x Canon)
My saniwa OC, Kanata Tokiwa, paired with my forever honey toudanshi, Mikazuki Munechika from the famous online browser game, Touken Ranbu XD

I've always loved historical Japanese culture :)
The scene I thought of is something really random...
A noble samurai whisking a lonely oiran away from her sad, caged life...

2015 batch 3 commissions!

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 2, 2015, 10:13 PM

Hey! I know many people have been asking when I will open commissions again...
So here we are! Boo 
I am now open for the batch 3 of my 2015 art commissions! Snow Party 

I'm already finished with my Touken Ranbu merchandise that I will be selling at Ozine Fest 2015 on December 26 *Free Icon/Emote* Pusheen (So exciting!) 
The indie artist circle I'm in are still hoping to get reservations on booths for the said convention...

Here's a sneak peek of the A3 poster I made ^^ (I use PS for effects, patterned and ornamental BGs, and a few lighting adjustments)

Though I still need to finish my gift arts for my artist friends Kotori Present Icon 

Now I will be taking commissions to gain enough budget for printing my keychains, button pins, and posters XD
Also! Christmas is coming... I need more money for buying presents 

(PS: For first time commissioners, please refer to my COMMISSION POINTERS and SLOTS section below my deviant ID)

Journal History


Batusawa's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Digital Art
I love watching and drawing anime, making stories, and original characters...

My art style may vary, but I mostly stick to my favorite Kazuki Yone style, which is my idol and my biggest influence :D

Origin of my deviantArt name?

My cousin gave it to me during our prank-texting days...
She told me that I should go as "Batusawa" because she knows how much I love Rourouni Kenshin (aka Samurai X) during those times...

I kinda laughed because I know she meant "Battousai" (The legendary name that Kenshin was known for when he was still an assassin) but mentioned the wrong name...

The name kinda stuck... I used it all the way... :)) Even though it sounded so masculine to me XD

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu! :3

Wed Apr 9, 2014, 10:26 PM
I saw your new sketch of Lucifer there, and I just want to say, I like it. XD
Wed Apr 2, 2014, 11:35 AM
Nayrael head reference is ok I guess. but if you want a fullbody art with it, just find any other separate pictures. (can be clothes, body structure, pose, etc)
Thu Jan 9, 2014, 9:07 AM
Question: Reference Picture you mention in your Commissions part... do you mean the entire body or would the head be enough?
Mon Jan 6, 2014, 7:28 PM
Happy new year to you too! ^^
