Australia
Current Residence: Central Queensland, in a country slowly regaining some of its lost sanity. Slowly.
Favourite genre of music: Hard to say, really... but I tend to favour the orchestrated, non-lyric variety.
Favourite style of art: A blend between Sci-Fi and Fantasy, mostly. I'm also a fan of watercolour work.
Personal Thought: Creating something only becomes pointless when you no longer learn or feel anything for it.
Interests

I'm not quite dead... yet.

But first, apologies for rarely uploading/saying anything around here.  When this year began I was determined to get back on track with my art, but instead things are... well, pretty bleak so far.  Fair enough, I've managed to draw a weapon concept each month, but that's it.  I've barely had the drive for anything else and health issues have prevented me from being creative when I intended to be.  There are times where I feel like my glory days as an artist are behind me... and it shows.  I get discouraged when I shouldn't.  I'm more critical about my work and myself as a person than ever before.  It's hard to pinpoint what is bothering me anymore but I'm sure I could write a list if I put my mind to it.  Anyway, good times.


So what's new?  Well, there's another cyclone heading in my locale's direction.  Fortunately the once mighty Ita has lost a lot of its destructive power, but it's still one to pause for concern.  Regardless, it should be here within the next 12 hours, so if you don't hear back from me anytime soon... it's a good bet that had something to do with it.


And what do I want to accomplish on the creative front for now?  Well, I'm currently working on a book cover for a client I hope to have done sooner than later.  That's my priority at least but I'm also hoping to have a new artwork of Klaus and Shae drawn by the end of the month.  I hope to also reveal a story soon that reflects what happens between those two, but it's set during an earlier era that will hopefully shed some light on history Shae herself is so fond of.  One of the major hurdles is coming up with names for everything, but I think I've finally managed to beat that.


In other news, though, here's something to lighten the mood!  Pew, Pew, Pew!  Pew--uhh ... enjoy!

Just out of curiosity. What do you take for a commision of a sword? And it is possible to pay via paypal for it? Since I live in Europe other payment methods are a bit difficult for me at the time.

In the past I've been charging $100 as a base price for all my works, but I've been thinking on lowering that when it comes to weapon/item concepts.  Depends on the complexity of the design/time required, though. =)

Are you going to sell some of the prints like the bath......if you could back to me I would greatly appreciate it. thank you sh
Reply
:iconaikurisu:
Well... the trouble with selling prints here is that most of my work does not qualify for resolutions needed for sizes folks would like.  In other words I tend to draw things too small so for something like 'Bathed Dream' to become printable I'd probably have to jump through some hoops to make it that it does make the grade.

Anyway, sorry if this isn't what you wanted to hear.  It's been bothering me a lot over the years as well.

Love that you loved Skies of Arcadia as much as I did! It is a totally underrated game and I was pleased to find that you were another fan!
Reply
:iconaikurisu:
Indeed!  Always a pleasure to meet a fellow Skies fan, too.  Damn good game. =)

Were you a member of the ol' SoAW forums by any chance?  I used to be one of the moderators there till the last of the ikonboard era forums were lost and replaced with what it has today.  Of course back then I barely even knew how to draw.  All I was really good for was making classy sig/avas out of anime screenshots. XD

I don't think I was a part of any forums, but I do remember stalking them! I was waiting around endlessly for a sequel or moreso a prequel to happen, but it never did. However, I was super happy when Vyse, Aika and Fina made a cameo appearance in Valkyria Chronicles. I need to play that game again. I adored it!
Reply
:iconaikurisu:
The first of the Valkyria Chronicles titles was indeed pretty cool.  Haha, Vyse and Aika were always serving on the front lines by default with me.  Great skills/stats.  Great that VC didn't make them out to be idiots not worth using, but I think Overworks wanted to give them the justice they deserved.  Any bet they've been itching to re-create/make a sequel for SoA for years now, too, but with Sega being their supreme overlords, I doubt it'll happen.  I want to believe otherwise, but after half the bloody stunts they've pulled in recent memory... I'm reluctant to give them anymore of my money.
