Merry Christmas!  :santa:

Hey ya, Walter! Hope you had a great Christmas! Our New Year's celebration has passed -- it's a quiet, new morning. :)

H A P P Y  -  N E W  -  Y E A R , M A N G A R A I D E R S !

As a small gift, here's a quick peek at the upcoming series I'll soon be posting on Webtoons.

Updates and thoughts:

I've been feeling conflicted of sorts, since early December-- a Japanese animation studio has extended an offer to work with them after viewing my portfolio (they're the sister studio of Feel. Inc., the studio responsible for Kiss x Sis). Thing is, I'll need to relocate- and I am very hesitant to leave with only less than half my own studio taken with me lol. Other than that, it means leaving my own house unattended for long periods of time. The thought of renting out an apartment, too-- the rent is mighty expensive. OTL In the end, I told them I can't join them now, but will do so once I am able (because there's so much to prepare for - securing my house, hibernating my billing accounts, getting the proper equipment to be able to continue my work outside of theirs). The cool thing about them was that they said they will always welcome me when the time comes.

Thank you, everyone! ^^; I'll be sharing the next page once it's up on Patreon. :) For the meantime, here's a little Christmas thanks from this series collab to our supporters - Patrons and non-Patrons!

that is absolutely brilliant news about making it into the papers :P

thanks for explaining the shading, but I'm not so sure I get you, so for example this shade patch here:
You either:
-build up the shade bit by bit with a semi-transparent brush
-paint a darker shade and smudge/blur the edges out
the brushes screenshot might help, although I use GIMP so they might not be transferrable. it's more the method rather than the brushes that I'm trying to get my head around at this point :P

It's more the second approach. A darker shade, then dilute it softly with either the marker or watercolor brush. I recently had to reinstall SAI but I kept my brush settings, haha. I'll list them here when I'm back on my comp.

Woah awesome! makes me feel bad about slacking on my main project, d'oh! But congrats on making it to the newspaper!
Great cover! And that hammer looks fantastic!

Thanks, guys! These took quite a while lol.

We've got the Patreon up for the manga! The first few pages will be open for non-Patrons to read, so I'll share it here, too! Enjoy!

Land of Guardians Patreon right here!

Aaaand it made its way to Jamaican news. Lol.

that's awesome to have your work on the front of a book, well done! (although it's not your book haha)

great monochrome characters there.
Can I ask, what method do you do for shading, for example, in the second to last one, the magic using one, how did you shade the tunic? some shade edges are really sharp, and other edges have a really long gradient to disappear. I've been struggling to get that sort of feel with my works, so any tips wouldbe appreciated :)

Thanks! I lay down the grayscales on SAI, and there are two ways I did the shading. One way was using the plain default brush - I played around with the settings. :) It Multiplies/darkens colors per stroke and makes for good, bold shading. The the ones with the sharp outline you've mentioned were done with this. Its fade is adjusted by using the default watercolor or marker brushes close to the end.

The other uses the first brush lightly, then diluting it gradually by markers and finally the subtle gradient with a custom watercolor brush. Unlike the first approach, I work with the gradients a little after midpoint. /I can show a screenshot of the brushes I have. ^^/

Cool character designs! My favourite is the last one. Dat Hammer
Btw, I noticed their last names are the same. Are they all related?

Thank youuu! :D Yes, they are.

D'aww, look at all this cuteness. I might totally nab your commission deets for one of my roommates. She practically hoards prints and stickers, and I know she'd appreciate the work put into them.

I dunno if I've said it before, but I'm proud to have you as a member of our community. You sure mean a heck of a lot to us. No go forth and get all the moneys at this event!

That made me smile. >__< If I have the time, I would like to hang around here longer and mingle with the rest of you guys. Q u Q This is all I can do for now. Thank you, Mahlua!

I've got a series of character designs done for character concepts, and recently one of my writers has put up his novel on Amazon. I did the art for his cover, and edited the layout as an extra. I'll be helping him with the art assets for the video promotion for his book soon. :)

As for the other artworks, I'll put them in spoiler since they're a bit large.
We already have a Patreon up for this project. ^^ I have my own Patreon but I haven't launched it yet.

Love ya last commission ( good luck with the rest!) but loving these works in particular, would like to see more of this style/look for sure
I will try to put out more works in that style. It seems people have a fondness for it, but it takes longer to finish over lined art. ^^ Thanks, dude.[/font][/size]

nice splatoon one, it's different style to what you've produced recently and I think it looks more complete than your normal works? maybe because its less of a sketchy style and more blocky. looks great regardless.
(everyone here seems to be doing different styles lately)

It's pretty fun to switch up styles. Keeps your galleries from going stale, haha. I change styles depending on what commissioners are looking for or what genre I'm working with.

Usually, I'm stuck doing shounen work, but I had a different request recently - and it was a shoujo piece. Since it was a gift for someone, I took extra care when it came to using refs so I can grab a resemblance to the characters my commissioner had in mind.

Here's how it looks now, minus the sweet message attached to it on print. (This version is for gallery purposes.)

Hi, guys! Woot. It's been so long since I last put something on here. There's another event coming this weekend. Even though I won't be running a booth until next year, I'm there for two things: one, to deliver commissions from people who'd taken my card and contact details from last con, and two - it's for the karaoke contest. (Defending the two-time streak maybe?) Haha.

That aside, here's one of the artworks requested on short notice - it's for a friend who's running a mini-event Splatoon showdown there. ^^; He needed time to promote, so this was put on prio.

One down, three commissions to go.

TK, I like the style you have. You use sai for your work?

Yes, I do. :) And thank you, Noir. [/size]

wow great bright artworks!
I hope you sell the prints because they are really good :)
the manga page looks fab, although the speech bubbles look strange without a black outline. is that a popular thing nowadays?
and regarding speech bubbles again, just a preference, but I like it when the tiny pointy triangle thing is curvy rather than straight. I think thats a Japanese vs. American thing though maybe.

I think maybe the Bakugou one is too mild? I can't imagine him making such a peaceful calm expression! Those are some thin sketch lines.

The manga is a loose sample, so the balloons aren't outlined. ^^ The small, pointy tails on them are a preference: the large, swishy tails are a bit bulky for me haha.

I agree that Kacchan looks pretty mild, too! Lol. I guess he's more like a perpetual wrong-side-of-the-bed person in the mornings. :D

Post-event update: I sold out all my prints and Jobclass (Gamer, Cosplayer, Artist) pins on both days. ^^

Here are the other ones that went out on the table:

Great work on all the new stuff. Those BnHA ones definitely look like the kind of prints that vendors sell at conventions. Such good quality...

I'm glad that the work's been steady for you. Just don't forget to take a little time for yourself! (I say, with a sleep schedule that wakes me up in the wee hours of the morning and puts me to bed in the late afternoon).

Doing my best not to burn out, Mahlua. Thank you. Your sched sounds pretty steep, too! o_o

Here's another print in progress!

Man your old stuff is still better than my current stuff. Congrats on the developments. Eyes look a little sunken in IMO, but the shading on the facial hair is crisp.

Haha, thanks. The,er, sunkenness was intentional (the actual person I drew this after has them lol). :D It's been a while, Mahlua![/font][/size]

Awesome stuff like always!!
Thanks, dude!

I haven't been on here in quite a while. To be honest, I have never managed my schedule this steeply before - upcoming con in a week's time, and commissions to do while running on deadlines. Hahahaha.

Here's some new stuff up lately. The last three I'm selling prints of next week. :) I'm tabling for the first time so I have to make the art count lololol.

Art Dump!

The illustrations I've been doing for a book -- have turned into manga pages (eventually was asked to do the manga adaptation). Here's a dummy sampler. The actual pages would differ, and be more polished, though. XDDD Did this fast. This is read right to left.

let us know how your event goes! hopefully you make lots of money :P
what sort of event is it?
I love the shading on Deku, if my finished art looked as good as that sketch I would be happy :P

Sure will, suuper! It's a gamers' event, but artists are invited to sell their works. Cosplays, too! Kind of like a small-scale con in our city.
Loool. I'm trying to get a hold of grayscaling. Might help quite a bit when I'm working on semirealistic stuff.

Speaking of--- did a quick doodle thingy. I saw an abomination in my old files and gave it a go again.

Drawing even on break, how admirable! I just tried something like this myself, drawing anthropomorphic characters. Never did it before so I just ripped off Fumikage Tokoyami's concept from Hero Academia lmao, well done as always!

It's pretty fun to experiment with other stuff once in a while. The recent one I did, was the first I drew something mecha for the commish. ^^ Likewise with kemono/furry.

Something I'm working on for an event coming in two months' time. I have to scrape together prints, keychains and postcard/bookies for merch. I plan to do anime and semi realistic styles on them for variety.
