I'm a aspiring artist from Washington that specializes in traditional drawings and digital coloring and effects. I've had semi-professional experience with tattoo, graphic design and illustration with some basic knowledge of commission work.

A lot of what I do centers around classic fantasy, mythology, giant monster related science fiction (kaiju) and critters of all kinds.

I haven't updated in awhile. Though some HWE stuff has creeped along for those that are involved with that. The reason being that since October of last year I've finally been gainfully employed. I work in retail now. Night Shift. Classic case of finally having income but not a lot of time to really enjoy it. The last contest prize from my contest is being colored. It's about over half way through that process now and will see the light of day eventually. Not to sure I'll continue with the narrative as there is something of a disconnect between the contest narrative and what I'm depicting in the prize art per winner's request. That's been my major project for awhile now. I otherwise have been drawing A LOT. Two major characters and a whole lot of concepts finally given form have been created over the last few months. I'll be submitting those relatively soon as well. The first half a dozen are just 'story characters' and they are already dead by the time the actual KCELL story takes place. They feature in Dawnaria's Bio which still has to be written as much as Raifu's. The rest are some familiar faces along with a lot of new ones. Characters from a list I made for KCELL that are as close to a production bible as I actually have. So you'll see a mix of mecha, cyborgs, aliens, mutants, primeval elements given form, cosmic beings and more. They won't be fleshed out or colored nearly as much as say, a stats image or even a bio image but they'll be proof of concept. So yeah, KCELL is still my major Kaiju setting project. This sketchbook I got next to me that's half full already speaks for itself. They are all already scanned and cleaned. Something that's a bit more difficult with a hardback book due to the spine leaving a shadow on the scanning surface no matter how flat you squish it. You should see how I have to scan out of this book. I have to take a large glass candle container I have and put it on top of the book to pin it to the scanning bed. I hate removing pages from sketch books so this is how I go about it with this particular book. It's not ring bound like the other one.

On the group project front (HWE), I am currently dribbling out characters and monsters for it. Much of which is already drawn, has been for months. Many of the Yokai I'm prepping for submission into the group have their stats but aren't connected to the overarching narrative that SirK and I are creating. A process that is stifled heavily by me having sporadic and random days off (but thankfully the same hours every day, those at least don't change). However, progress is being made and we're about a fourth of the way down our respective lists.

Other media wise I'm still playing MH4 and Dragon's Dogma. Still in high rank. Now have access to Rajang and star 8 quests. Made a Dober set but it's not fully upgraded. Dober with Def Lock gemmed in is basically the anti Jho set and even against your first encounter crash course with a Frenzied Deviljho, it's a great set for your first outing on the giant pickle. Though I failed to full break his face or cut his tail, much disappointment there. Then again, I also forgot my meats and bombs that run too lol. Had to farm plenty of dragonbone relics to make it and now have to farm spheres to fully upgrade it. Would also like to make the Lao DS's but so far the Stygian DS's are carrying the build well enough. I would like to farm Brachydios but in 4 he just hits so freaking hard and there really isn't a set that's a perfect counter to him and gives you great defense at the same time. They made it very difficult to get slime/dung negation in 4. In Dragon's Dogma I am still grinding my warrior levels to match my mage levels. Also doing the Drake runs for dragon forging my stuff. Almost have all my gear and several weapons forged already. It's just time consuming as you have to cycle a in game week to fight him again. Otherwise sitting at the edge of completing the main game's first half and fighting the Dragon. Have chosen NOT TO in order to solidify my build (aiming for a functional Mystic Knight, but I want the STATS so Fighter grinding it is as I started as Mage > Sorcerer to level 60). Practically starting from bottom of the melee tree on up at this point has been pretty brutal. Enemies that I was blasting to smithereens before are now wrecking my asshole while I feel like I'm wielding a Nerf Bat on them. Now that I'm 'functionally' a lvl 13 fighter it's not so bad now. So far I've been doing every imaginable quest and doing all the ones I possibly can before fighting the Dragon (and claiming the obligatory waifu lol). Have gone to Bitterblack Isle and got some neat stuff and experience but naturally got freaking wrecked as soon as I had to fight anything around the level of a Geo Saurian or Elder Ogre by myself. Only one of my pawns (the one graciously donated by friend DragonsMana) is actually capable in that place. The first couple floors are manageable though. My first encounter with Grim Goblins was pants shittingly intense as my whole party was just cluster fucked between rooms and they Grim Goblins did their massive overkill group attacks in a massive chain orgy of pain. I basically health item scummed my way to victory on that one. So going to at least take care of the overworld first before returning to DLC Sphincter Splitter Island. Good times. I also finished the third animated arc of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure recently. Greatly enjoyed it. Probably the most emotionally impactful out of the three for me personally. I am super behind on major movies this year but I did see Deadpool. Greatly enjoyed that deconstruction of superhero movies as well.

So yeah, just wanted to drop this here and let everyone know (and everyone that's decided to watch me recently) that I am not dead but I update and upload fairly SLOWLY these days. Despite having quite a bit of material I could actually put up right now. Hopefully I'll have a lot more ready to actually show you all fairly soon.

So...Shuten Douji was a trap-loli and Ibaraki Douji is a super brat-loli.

You know...I'm starting to wonder if all Japanese demons and Yokai in the Nasuverse are just a bunch of lavishly dressed little gir-

wait a fucking minute Nasu! :iconreimurapefaceplz:

TYPE-MOON CROSSOVER WITH TOUHOU WEN?!

(although to be fair, Shuten Doji did disguise himself as a woman at one point so... also from what we know of Sutoku, he's a guy. Bishi. But a guy xD)

Ah, now I understand what the fuck is going on. Man, this is like One More Day levels of character derailment.

I would tend to agree... but this is comic books, and mind control shenanigans and memory alteration happens *all the goddamn time*. So Its probably one of those things that the suits at Marvel are using to make fans lose their shit and gain interest and piss off and gain interest of MCU fans. xD

Hilariously, the TBF's encountered a similar phenomenon with RATS. Bonewheels now do sick burnouts as they turn around.
