Commissions and Adoptables!

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 6, 2015, 10:51 AM
I am opening up my commissions and I will soon be making Furisode Girl adoptables (more info on that later)

I've put a few examples of commissions up BUT if you have questions, of course don't be afraid to PM me for information.
The prices aren't really set in stone, they're just sort of example prices to give people an idea.
I am opening up commissions because I'm going through a bit of a financial issue, I won't get into it, but I want to make a little money doing something I love.
If you know someone who'd be interested please send them my way! :D

(A journal for my adoptables will be coming soon. I'm just starting out so I'm doing research to make sure I'm doing it right!)

Thanks a bunch guys! <3

I'm back~!

Hello all of my faithful watchers and long time friends!

I am back after a very very long time away. I'm talking almost three years...yeesh.

I had been so busy with finishing my degree and moving to Japan that I had no time for leisurely activities!

BUT, I have graduated and I'm an English teacher here in Japan so I have more free time to draw and show you guys my personal projects.
I'm currently working on a couple of pixel rpg games. I'll be uploading sheets and art of characters, environments blah blah blah.

I'll be cleaning up my DA as well so all of my old work will be going into respective folders in my gallery. I'll also be looking to get back into art groups.

I miss those.

So I hope everyone has been well and I hope you'll forgive me for being away for so long! >.<

Stay tuned~!

Hello!

Long time no see huh?

To anyone that still watches me, mightymakitime.tumblr and Naughtymaki.tumblr(+18) is where I spend my days.

I upload my art there so please watch me!

I don't really come here anymore.
So because classes will be ending soon and I have exams coming up, I've been arting MOAR.

I've been drawing Sabine recently. You guys remember her right? :D And I've been trying to improve my style as of late, make it less anime-ish? idk what to call it.

But I'll post some sketches/scans up soon! :D

  • Listening to: Dawn Richard Wicked Little Things
So some of you have noticed I have been more active~! That's right I'm back!
My drive for drawing is back too which is nice.

So since I'm drawing more I want to improve and junk. That being said, besides my Ask-Capell tumblr I have started a 'naughty' tumblr. If you want the link you'll have to ask me~! :D

So as some of you may have noticed, I haven't been on DA or skype in... forever. I'll be on skype more so no big deal, but I've been missing on DA for a few months now? I'll explain the reason in a bit, and it's a bit depressing ._. Nothing really bad or serious, just like a 'Dang' type of thing.

So after last semester huge stress and fail, I felt extremely... depressed. I didn't want to go back to school, and I simply wanted to just work. I wasn't interested in art anymore. Going to a school that offered none of the classes I wanted to take for my major was even more depressing, hell they didn't even offer some sort of animation or illustration class. So I almost didn't go back to school this semester.

But then I realized, wait, I'll just change my major. I'll change it completely.

I went from an Art Major to Asian Studies major. I realized that I wouldn't be able to have a steady career with an Art background, I'd be living from project to project, and as much as I'd love to work on stories and character art... it just wasn't looking good. So I switched to Asian Studies with a concentration in Japan. My main goal is to move to Japan and teach English, I figured I look a lot more attractive to schools if I had background in Japanese history and the like. Plus Japanese history/culture/tradition always interested me more than art.

However, even after I switched majors, my passion for art has not yet returned. I haven't felt inspired to do any sort of art and it does make me upset because I love drawing and creating art for my pleasure and watchers/friends. Maybe when I settle in my new major I'll be inspired to do art but for now, I don't know. It makes me sad that I haven't drawn anything really in the last... three months?

I also left art school because I didn't fit in with any of the students. At least at my art school, all of the students were so arrogant and full of themselves and I couldn't stand them. They were all so snobby and acted like they were higher than anyone else. And I'm just not like that at all. I'm a very humble person, and I take any advice or criticism as best as I could. These students though? They all had so much attitude and such high airs, it made me sick. When I was at Tyler, I literally had no friends. I was alone in my own world.

However! Since changing majors, I've made numerous friends within the first week! I was like, "Where were all these people when I was an art student?!" So I'm a lot happier now.


Well I thank anyone who has gotten this far in reading my rant/confession/update. I appreciate it :D

Also, within the last two days I've been thinking of making a comic based loosely on ancient Japanese history. And maybe now instead of making a club about Yakuza, I'll make a story/comic about it. Comic/story for now, maybe club later. Who knows.

I'll probably be writing more. Update on recent happenings. For example, I'll be in a Maid Cafe. So when that time comes I'll update on it, and post pictures around that time :D


Peace everyone! <3 Maki out

PS. I figured I'd whore myself out a little... I made a Youtube channel where I sing and do dance covers. Subscription is welcome and appreciated! www.youtube.com/user/DokiMakii…

I hate it when life has a way of throwing itself at you. Here I am again with no time for ANYTHING. I want to punch myself for it.
Actually I want to punch my school. I have so much work for several clubs on here, but because I haven't had time I've missed a couple of deadlines. ;~;

That and the fact that my Org club is waiting on my ass for the new info.

I saw this on a couple of journals around DA and I've been watching :iconpandamunk:'s journal and now I'm caving. I'm doin it.

1.) Describe your character's relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?

Frederico Giagordo- Biological father
Luci's relationship with his dad was pretty strong growing up, and it hasn't really changed since then. He helped Luci through his trying times in school, Luciano tended to get into a lot of trouble especially when he entered Secondary school. He was there for Luci every time Luci ended up in the Principal's office. Luciano loves his father a lot and would probably become a broken person if something happened to his dad. His dad is his best friend. Simple as that

Caterina Giagordo- Step-mother
The relationship he has with his mother is well... a little strained. She treats him like her son but he could always sense a sort of anger. Maybe he just imagined it. He always felt she favored his little brothers more than him and that's perhaps why he resented her a little as well. He was always a little jealous of Pertruccio and baby Ezio because she always showered them with more love. Other than that growing up was simple. She was a very concerned mother for her accident prone child.


2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?
ALL OF HIM
Hair: Luciano's hair tends to change a lot. He likes to go back and worth with dying it and such. Currently he has chocolate brown hair with gold highlights throughout.

Nose: The bump. Since he broke it, the way it healed caused a large bump. He's convinced the ladies love it.

Body: HE HAS A FANTASTIC BODY. He has worked very hard to get such a model-esque physique, but he won't admit that it's really the Aphrodite genes that help him look so pleasing and attractive to the eye.

3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?

He has a lot of them. But a really huge and new one would be a gigantic scar/bruise on his back. He likes to freerun with his little brother a lot and and he tends to break a lot of bones and damage himself quite a bit. One particular incident, caused him a happy trip to the hospital. He didn't quite make a jump and fell back onto a blunt object. It didn't pierce his skin too badly, but he actually broke two of his floating ribs (ribs not attached to your sternum). After he healed, he was left with a gigantic scar around the middle to left side of his back.

4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?
Luciano is extremely vain. I mean he's a child of Aphrodite, and he knows he's good looking. He tries to hide his arrogance but it sort of comes out anyway.

5.) What's your character's ranking on the Kinsey Scale?
Luciano on the Kinsey scale is about a 1. He's pretty straight, and he likes women, but he'll flirt with gay men. Just cause he can.

6.) Describe your character's happiest memory.
Hm. Luci's happiest moment. Probably his first kiss. It was the summer, he was only fourteen. You see, Italy in the summer gets flooded with lots of  tourists, and lots of girls. But this particular summer, Luci met an American girl. Her name was Elizabeth and she was sixteen. She spent the majority of her summer in Luci's hometown, she had a home stay of sorts. He was smitten with her and for the whole summer pretty much spent it with her. During her last week in Italy, he sort of confessed his feelings for her and she gave him his first kiss. It was like nothing he ever felt. In his words, "Her lips were so soft, and she tasted like vanilla ice cream. It felt like I was kissing a goddess."

7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?
Luci would like to erase the many times he's cheated on various girlfriends. That and when one girl's boyfriend cracked him in the nose, and gave him that nice ol bump. Thought he figures the bump adds to his charm.

8.) Day of Favorites! What's your character's favorite ice cream flavor? Color? Song? Flower?

Ice Cream: Cookie Dough Ice Cream
Color: Dark Red
Song: La Catedral III- www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCKn04… (First song he learned to play on his guitar)
Flower: He really loves Orchids. They come in so many different colors and shapes.


9.)  Who does your character trust?
He trusts his brother Pertruccio and he's starting to trust Rory. He doesn't really trust a lot of people.

10.) Can you define a turning point in your character's life? Multiples are acceptable.

11.) Is there an animal you equate with your character?

12.) How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?

13.) What does your character's bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep?

14.)  How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold?

15.) Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl?

16.) Are there any blood relatives that your character is particularly close with, besides the immediate ones? Cousins, Uncles, Grandfathers, Aunts, et cetera. Are there any others that your character practically considers a blood relative?

17.) What's your character's desk/workspace look like? Are they neat or messy?

18.) Is your character a good cook? What's their favorite recipe, whether they're good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)

19.) What's your character's preferred means of travel?

20.) Does your character have any irrational fears?

21.) What would your character's  cutie mark be?

22.) If your character could time travel, where would they go?

23.) Is your character superstitious?

24.) What might your character's ideal romantic partner be?

25.) Describe your character's hands. Are they small, long, calloused, smooth, stubby?

26.) Second day of favorites! Favorite comfort food, favorite vice, favorite outfit, favorite hot drink, favorite time of year, and favorite holiday.

Comfort Food:
Vice:
Outfit:
Hot Drink:
Time of Year:
Holiday:

27.) Pick two songs that describe your character at two different points of their life, and explain why you chose them.

28.) If your character's life was a genre, what would it be?

29.) How does your character smell? Do they wear perfume or cologne?

30.) And finally: Write a letter to your character, from yourself.

I swear it's not by choice.

But it looks like my 2nd week of classes at my new school is going to be hectic. So I will be MIA on DA at least until everything calms down. I no longer have weekends to fool around because I'm at work, and the week is so flooded with work that I've barely had time to draw for fun. All the drawing I'm doing is for my studio classes.

I really don't want to go on hiatus but with the way things are looking I just won't have time for recreational art. With that being said, I will try to get on as much as I can but don't expect much out of it.

The only art I will be posting will probably be art from my studio classes.

I'm sorry guys but college and my grades are important~!

OMG. I hate college. I'm glad that my first year is over but jesus effing christ I swear teachers just like to ruin your life the last week of the semester. I HAVE NO LIFE BECAUSE OF THOSE PRICKS OTL

I haven't had time to do anything of leisure. I haven't even really had time to draw or color or upload anything. I haven't even really had time to draw irl! Like, nothing but little doodles o' shit!

I swear to god, now that I am done I will be able to art more... that is of course I get a job where I work five days a week at crazy hours and then once again, I have no life.

I really just want to finish this unfinished last page of M2 but time and current location are preventing me from doing so. OTL I hate this.

People who don't have any are liars.

Hi guys! Now I know I keep popping in an out and all that cause of work (which I'm at right now) But I need some help!
yoshiwaragodfathers.deviantart…

:iconyoshiwaragodfathers:

It's a yakuza club and it's still in the works, but in order for it to work, I need more people helping me put it together. Right now, I need about four bosses. Because the current bosses that are suppose to be helping I either can't get into contact with now, or they're never on.

So I need to know if anyone is interested in becoming an admin or something like that.
If you are interested I need to know how often you're online, if you have either a)skype b)AIM or c)MSN and whether or not you'd be commited enough to help put the club together so it could get up and running.

And trust me, you don't need to know a lot about Japanese history to be an admin. Either leave a comment here, or send me a note.

To the current bosses who might read this. I'm not removing you, but you might get replaced because of your lack of contact with me.

I'd really appreciate your help guys. >u<
