My artworks start on paper as pencil sketches, to be colored digitally next. This kind of mix allows me the best of both worlds - digital and traditional media.
Anime and semi-realistic fantasy stylizations accompanied me from the very beginning of my journey as an artist, complementing each other in the mixing. These are fundamentals of my style and what I am aiming to create and represent in my works.
There are too many fascinating and amazing things in life to focus only on one of them such as: Emotions, designs, different settings and moods. I attempt to recreate them all by trying each of them at least once.
What's the best shlong you've drawn? LMFAO can i even ask this? i'm sorry
Well, you already asked so it’s not that it matters now :^)
Lucky that I just finished the portrait of the greatest shlong that ever existed. Here it is:
It was an honor really.
And since you seem to be incredibly fascinated with the subject of shlongs, I’ll upload some srs shlongs in male butts later today to satisfy your enormous, though slightly disturbing, curiosity with this subject ;^) Please stay tuned.
This is probably a silly question, but were you one of those artists who started off like drawing stick people? or was there always just significant talent there? because your artwork is amazing! I'm trying to draw.. i'm learning and it's quite hard and frustrating when i don't make much progress.. And tips or advice to offer?
It’s probably not something you want to hear, but at some point every one of us starts with drawing stick people. Some people learn faster, some slower, some people’s learning process is more encouraged by their surrounding and some people have better possibilities to learn than others, but we all start in the same place (maybe except some super prodigy kids you can hear about in news, but these are literally few and I guess their approach to it is utterly different than regular guys’ like us)
Of course the process looks different for people who get interested with drawing at young age and those who does so when their perception of beauty and the world is fully developed, as a kid you don’t really have idea how physics, anatomy and such works, you know that people have arms and legs, that grass is green and the sun must be in the upper corner of the picture. ALWAYS.
For me, there wasn’t any quick, easy trick for getting better and the way to where I am now was long and full of mistakes (it still is). I guess I just always had a lot of determination and enough of discipline to keep myself going. I always had very high expectations from myself and I never was fully satisfied with myself. Even now when I look at my newest pictures, I am able to be happy with them only for a really short time before getting ideas for how I could improve them.
As for advice, I don’t think I have anything more to say than what i already said in my response few days ago: don’t give up too early, don’t let obstacles to discourage you, learning is endless process, not something you just suddenly gain and it is frustrating, it is tiring, it actually very rarely goes the way we want it and every struggle is yet another important experience. Learn basics, if you want to draw people, learn about their anatomy and proportions before focusing on your own style. Gotta know the rules before bending them. Depending of your preferred technique, learn about your tools and how to use them correctly, be it traditional medium like pencils or art programs. Instead of collecting tons of tutorials for later, try them right away. Learning how to draw is arduous process and in most of the cases, there really isn’t anything romantic about it. But at the end, from some point, it gets really satisfying so don’t give up!
To cheer you up, you should totally check out my improvement meme which starts with very derpy pictures I made when I was around 10 - 12. You can find it HERE. ENJOY!

When requesting a Waist up, and making it spicy, would you be willing to go a bit below the waist for that aspect?
Yeah, most of my waist up pictures goes bellow waist anyway for compositional reasons. I could’ve named it half body I guess, it would be more suitable.
Anyway, please check out my waist-up tag (the new posts are the most accurate) to see how it usually looks o/
Step by step presentation of my coloring process of “Saber of Silver” commission for dinomanm3.
I thought you guys may be interested with how my coloring process looks. Generally it is all based on different blending modes of layers, lots of multiply (base, shadows, intense colors like green in this case), overlay ans screen (lights) and soft light (skin), then long long time with color adjustments like selective color, color balance, curves and such. Everything done in Photoshop.

are we allowed to add a sort of reference photo as an explanation of something that we want? such as a style shirt or design? or hair?
Yes, absolutely, in most of the cases any kind of visual references is better/ easier than word description o/
(also, I would really prefer if you guys send me this kind of commission related questions on my firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail instead, my partner is responsible for answering on this kind of e-mails and it helps me a lot with time management + I don’t want to spam people’s dash with tons of answers on rather personal messages o<-< thanks in advance!)
LMAO do you ever get tired of drawing shlongs?
Never, shlongs are life.
lol you seem to be packed with a lot of orders, i'm not sure if i should order from you now or wait.. and we pay right before you design right?
Yes, I have lots of orders and unfortunately (well, fortunately for me, I have bills to pay LOL) I doubt it will change any time soon. The Main and Chibi/Object/Portrait waiting lists are open all the time though and will stay so until further notice (the MakeItQuick! List is closed atm because at some point it completely blocked other lists and I want to finish part of regular orders before opening it again). So I would recommend just jumping in, it doesn’t cost you anything and it’s better to have a reserved spot and just wait, because who knows when and if the lists will get any shorter than it is now.
And yes, I accept the payment when it’s your turn on the list and I’m ready to start working on your picture. Detailed description of Commissioning Process you will find in here.
when asking for help with the "Pimp My Design" if you're purchasing, for example a Waist up and a portrait or a chibi, would the "Pimp my design" go for the entire order or would you pay the $30 for each piece of art work? Thanks! i love your work! and you're a great inspiration!
I feel like I should explain the Pimp By Design! option better.
By buying a Pimp My Design!, you receive a separate piece of art in a form of rough sketches which main function is helping you to complete the design you have already planned. If after that you wish to purchase any other type of artwork of previously “pimped” character, the additional Pimp My Design! fee won’t be added, because the design will be completed already. Depending of what kind of help you need, the sketches’ form will wary to suit their main focus (it will be a portrait if you need a help with a hairstyle, or a full body if you need help with the outfit etc.).
For example, one of my clients had an idea for their character and needed help with choosing the fitting hairstyle for him. They provided me a character’s description and said that they wanted it to be red and short, so this is how their Pimp My Design! sketches looked:
they chose the one they liked and we adjusted some final details like longer fridge/shorter back, different this or that etc.
After that they also wanted me to design their character’s full outfit, but since their idea was brief (elegant, fantasy, suitable for high class/authority) without any specific references, it counted not as a Pimp My Design! but as a Custom Design commission, since I had to design it from scratches. So yeah, it all depends of what you want really.
Generally Pimp My Design! option is for rather smaller things and details to refine the design you already have than figuring out something completely new c: I hope it helped!
Hi, I just wanted to tell you that I've seen quite a few of your responses to peoples' questions and I think it's so great that you take the time to respond with more than just a few words + you seem so genuinely happy about the questions ^_^ I'm going to piggyback off of someone else who said this, and say you should really consider streaming one of these days :) Keep up the fab work!
I’m glad to know that you think so hehehe, actually whenever I write some responses, I try to make them as short as possible, mostly because just as you said most people write rather short, straight to the point responses and I feel like some total loser and try hard when mine are getting accidentally huge o<-< //manry tear
And thank you, I’ll surely consider it! Some other person few days ago recommended me a program to recording things going on on the screen, so I think I’ll give it a try sometime soon! o/
I made a selfie after being tagged for a selfie challenge on dA, wanted to feel like 16 again. Look at my glamorous tank top//single tear
