snow mushi by rtil
snow mushi
this is my 2nd mushishi painting. it's got a very similar theme of the 1st, but i liked this sketch better and decided to paint this one even after completing the first. not something i'd usually do!

anyway, this is going to print! want one?

$10 pre-order 

for this 11x17 poster (will ship after sakura-con in early april)

i also finally recorded myself painting this after a long dry spell. i'm going to try to use my youtube channel more this year.

the first of two mushishi paintings. i wanted this to be a print but i think i am going to print my 2nd one instead. i still like this one, though. i’ll post the next one with a timelapse video, too. it’s actually me painting this one, then going back to an old sketch in the same ps file and painting that one as well. i really just couldn’t make up my mind.. even after finishing this one!

this sketch started out as something totally different.. turned in to a girl taking a juice break inbetween fights. give her another minute and she'll be ready to beat down whoever's next :D

a change of pace

so recently, Dysfunctional Systems 2, the visual novel i was the lead artist on, has been cancelled. for a short while, i was hoping that despite the money running out that i would get an opportunity to finish the game with the rest of the production team as volunteers. that offer was put on the table, but unfortunately it did not make a difference. Dani, the creator of the project, just has zero interest in finishing it. there are many other things i know now that make me uneasy about the whole thing, but i don't think it's appropriate to divulge. at the end of the day, DS2 in its current state will probably never see the light of day, and i honestly don't think it ever will. then there are other projects like the Juniper's Knot animation, and i look at the scope of them now and realize those will also never get finished. the position i was put in made me feel like i had to quit. i felt i was only offered to stay out of pity. so i quit today.

i was a bit sad about this, as i had been working on the game for 8 months, and been a part of Dischan even longer - i really liked working with the rest of the team, and i thought we were on the way to making something great. but it honestly turned out to be almost a complete farce, and now all i have to take away with it is the experience and practice, which isn't bad by any means, it's just less than i was hoping for.

that being said, i'm ready to move on and spend some time doing what i used to do - making more art for myself. making new prints for conventions, doing collabs and commissions. small things - no long term commitments and grand projects, just keeping it simple for a while. oh, and of course, getting back to making short animations and cartoons. i think i can make it happen and i want to share more of my art with everyone. i'm tired of only uploading stuff once every few months, tired of my personal work collecting dust, tired of making things for other people.. so what better time to change that then now?

this year, expect to see more uploads from me!

Yeah, I got a little question... there's a lot of NSFW from Katawa Shoujo that clearly looks like your art. Is it your, by any chance? :o

Your pictures are so breathtaking that I feel like I could stare at one for hours on end without growing used to it. You're really talented.
