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 ...

No art uploads lately... and a broken laptop

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 14, 2015, 6:34 AM


Yeah, that's right...

I apologize for not having any art updates these days

I was just so busy with internship, and my thesis...

And it's just so inconvenient that my laptop broke! >.<
I have all my important files (including my thesis) saved in it too.
It's still in the repair shop, so I have to patiently wait for its return...

About art updates... I am not able to draw because I don't have the time as well...
I go home late night from work
Unlike those days when I come home from school and find time to draw, that's not possible with my current schedule anymore.

I still create artworks, yeah, but that's for internship/practice purposes only.
I am not allowed to upload any artwork done in the office.
It's such a shame, I really want others to see it DX

But maybe I could show WIPs and rough drafts of some illustration concepts that were not chosen and finalized...
:D
I'm really proud of my accomplishment because I was getting the hang of drawing with Photoshop LOL!

I may look like I'm no longer visiting dA, but I still do everyday. I'm just lurking...
I guess this is all I can say for now...

Talk to you people, next time! ^^

Busy semester... *cries*

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 14, 2014, 4:21 AM


Yeeaaaahhhh...
It's gonna be a busy semester for me.
I'm a graduating student, currently taking up Multimedia Arts...
and I am having my internship at the moment. 
(It's a practicum requirement)

Required to finish 500 freaking hours XD 
and I only have 3 days in a week to do internship work because the remaining 2 days are for school.

I applied for a company (has a main branch in Japan) that designs characters and make illustrations for games.
It's like... hmmm how do you say this... a third-party? (dunno if the term is right) Since they are being hired by other gaming companies to do art and character conceptualization but not involved in the creation of the whole game itself. 

What I'm simply saying is... I'm gonna be very busy....
until April, probably.
I'll try my best to finish the remaining commission, and participate in the Secret Santa event I signed up for. 
There's Christmas holiday for that anyway...

--------------------------------

So how am I doing with internship?

Ugh it's hard >.<
I am doing the thing I love (which is drawing) but I was wondering why I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought I would.
Is it the strict atmosphere? My new co-workers? The new environment? The long travel and everyday traffic I face to get there?

They draw with Photoshop, and I'm having a hard time getting used to it because I have been using Sai ever since I started Digi drawing.
It's also kinda difficult being an intern because my mentor is making me incorporate a certain style that I'm not very good at. But I guess that how it really is when working in such field. To be flexible and be able to imitate a certain style not only for aesthetic purposes but also for consistency/uniformity.

Guess I really wish to work in a company that REALLY creates games. Because I love to see the process of how every element is put together such as script writing, video-making, animating, composing music etc. (not just the art) 

I found such company but I don't think they're taking much interns at the moment.
It's an indie game and art studio and I have this feeling that they're more freewheeling and fun than where I'm currently working.
I hope I could transfer XD

Sorry for the long rant. 
I just really want to shake off this heavy feeling...

I love watching and drawing anime, making stories, and original characters... Be nice to me please >.<
Sorry if I have no permanent style, because I tend to experiment a lot...

Origin of my deviantArt name?

hmmm... It started a long time ago when me and my fave cousin were prank texting a senior whom we have a crush on... (Yes... childish, I know -.-")

She said that we should use code names to hide our identities...
My cousin 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 maybe she was thinking "Battousai" (The legendary name that Kenshin used to go as when he was still an assassin) but mentioned the wrong name...

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

I also used to play Tinier me... (when it was still alive)
My name there was "hinata018" ;)

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu! :3

COMMISSION POINTERS and SLOTS (Closed)






Please bear in mind that I only do Anime style art!!! <3
And also that, I have no permanent drawing and coloring style. But I do try to keep just one kind of style as much as possible

Price Range (depending on detail)
Bust: $10-$20
Half body: $20-$30
Full body: $30-$50

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
Add:
$7-$17- Bust
$17-$20 - Half body
$20-$30 - 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)



POINTERS


:bulletblue: PAYPAL ONLY
I only accept commission payments through Paypal (preferably in USD) PLEASE pay it fully and not let me carry additional Paypal fees.

:bulletblue: MESSAGE ME REFERENCE & DESCRIPTIONS
Message me some reference pictures, a few descriptions, and some additional pointers about your character.
(ALWAYS keep the words to a minimum)

:bulletblue: NO REFERENCE PICTURES?
You have to add an additional $5-$20. You are paying me this for the designing/ conceptualization. (be it character, outfit, accessories etc.)
(But as much as possible, please do provide references for us to avoid any arguments <3 But if you want me to exactly copy the design in the given reference, then no additional payment)

: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
That's the last thing I need since I'll also be facing deadlines from schoolwork. I also don't like being pressured ^^

:bulletblue: FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE
This rule is not based on simply calling dibs on a slot. You need to message me the full description on your commission, and make sure that we have already come to an agreement with everything.

:bulletblue: RESERVATION SLOTS
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 FOUR pieces per slot.


: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).

: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.

:bulletblue: SENDING THE PAYMENT
Wait for my GO signal on sending the payment. If you want to send in advance, I don't mind. After receiving the payment, I'll give you the download link on mediafire.

:bulletblue: HAVEN'T RECEIVED THE LINK YET?
If you feel worried that I still haven't complied even after you send the payment... 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 (must be paid first) :)

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)

Question: Reference Picture you mention in your Commissions part... do you mean the entire body or would the head be enough?

I've seen some of your works.
You've got good concepts in mind. I can see that you have your concepts well-planned in your imagination
Like what the others said about ur work, you got all the anime/manga elements work together.
All you need to do is practice
more on the execution part.
Practice more on ur drawing skills until you become closer and closer to conveying those ideas in your head :)
