This journal is mostly to get that happy new year shit out of the way ' w'

I still find it really hard to pay attention to dA, and it's right now just a deposit of drawings, so if you wanna stalk me somewhere else, I generally post my stuff earlier at my Tumblr (I also make my commission announcements in there, so if you're interested in one, keep an eye in there!) and I started using a Twitter too (right now it's just random posting, but sooner or later I'd like to start making more traditional sketches, and they'll most likely go in there first).

And that's it! Cheers ya'll!
I FORGOT I HAD A DA! Sorry for the people that left messages and such over here! Been pretty busy this half of the year, and I've been more active over at Tumblr than this site.

I'll be uploading some stuff I made the next few days, and hopefully don't forget ever again to check this site.

I'll purge the messages since I accumulated a crapload of them and even thinking of reading all of them makes me want to not come back here, but I really really really appreciate you guys for taking a look at my humble gallery, you guys are amazing.

So happy new year to everyone! Hope the next one is better!
Yoooo can't believe the amount of messages and wonderful gifts I got, I'm absolutely speechless!

Can't thanks each and everyone individually, so I'll make a general THANK YOU over here! You're all amazing, I don't deserve you guys! ;O;

UPDATE: All the slots have been filled! I'll make sure to open some more places once I finish these ones. Thanks once again for the commissioners and to everyone that spread around the word! You guys are awesome =3=

As the title says! I’m starting with commissions!

For the general prizes and a bunch of samples you can click here, but the prizes I'm offering right now are:

SKETCHES: Full body and flat colors _______________________________________ $25

CHIBIS: Full color and simple background ___________________________________ $40

PORTRAITS: Full color and simple background ________________________________ $60

CELSHADING: Full body and full color on celshading style, and simple background __ $70

FULL BODY: Full color (softshading) and simple background _____________________ $80

SCENE: Full color, full body and detailed background _________________________ $120
The prize may vary depending on the details needed on the background on this one

I’m still a bit clueless on how these things work, so for now I’ll begin with 3 slots only, and I’ll add more as I get those finished. I might or might not increase prizes later on, so you better take the chance quick! I’ll be offering some cheaper options later on, but for now I want to see how much interest there is for more finished stuff.

To contact me you can either send a note here on my deviantart or send an email to koidrake@hotmail.com.

Payment of the commissions will be made via Paypal only. I’ll give away the info on where to send it once both settled things out with the commission.

All commissions will be done on A4, 300dpi, unless stated otherwise by the commissioner. If a change of the canvas size is required for composition sake I'll inform of it beforehand, and if the commissioner disagrees with the change then I'll go ahead and rework the drawing to fit the given space.

Some general things I’d like to point out, which you don’t have to read but it’d help if you do:

I won’t be accepting any NSFW stuff: I’ll surely offer that option later on, but right now I just don’t feel like it.

All rates are estimates: They represent drawings for single characters. So the rates will increase depending on the complexity of the drawing(additional characters for example). I’ll will inform about any necessary increment of the prize BEFORE I accept the commission though, so there will be no surprises there.

Full payment is required before the commission is confirmed: Once the details about the commission and such get discussed, I’ll give the info on where to send the payment.

References for the characters are required: Trying to get a character designed out of a description is an annoyance since I require to get more feedback from the requester, so I rather avoid these situations.

Be concise on what you request: Be smart on the info you give. A basic backstory of the character is really helpful. Sending five pages of a character bio isn’t. If you want a specific background and/or pose and you have some references to help illustrate the idea then go ahead! That makes the work even easier for both of us!

I have the right to decline any request: Don’t take this personal, but there will be some things I wouldn’t like to draw. My gallery should give a reeeally general idea of what I draw, but if that doesn’t clear things out then just send an ask or something and I’ll see if I’m up to drawing it. But yeah, no NSFW!

Terms of use:

  • After I send the basic rough sketch of the drawing to settle with pose and composition, you’re entitled to around three revisions on the sketches, so as noted above, be concise on what you ask. Once I send the final work, I won’t accept any other revision without an extra charge.
  • I have the rights to post the commissioned work on my website, and include it in my portfolio.
  • You are allowed to crop or edit the work for personal purposes.
  • You are not allowed to use the commissions for commercial or promotional purposes.
  • The drawing will be sent with the original size that it was made, and on .png format (unless another format is specified).
  • No refunds! If you don’t trust that I’ll get the work done, then don’t commission me. 

Payment of the commissions will be made via Paypal only

Once the commission is accepted I’ll let you know where to send the payment for the commission, and as soon as I receive it I’ll start right away

For commission payments please use the: Send money to friends or family or send as gift" option on PayPal. 

For all you tumblr-ers out there :I  --> koidrake.tumblr.com/ <--

There is a possiblity that any doodle that I post there will be posted here eventually, but if you want to see it before anyone else, go to that site haha. There are a few other stuff I don't plan to post here at all too.

And since I'm here and I forgot to do this before, here's the list of the current kiribans I got done, not sure when next one will happen, but I'll let you all know if I'm willing to make the 19k one :3

I'll be busy until monday, and when that time comes, I want to have something I feel I must finish to get me back on the drawing mood, which didn't happen on my last hiatus time

SO! since I missed the 18k mark, I'll cheat the system and make one on the 18500 mark! You all know the rules, so I wont repeat them.

For the newcomers, here's a list of previous kiribans and some small pointers on how to join: koidrake.deviantart.com/journa…

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! AND NO CHEATING, LET'S MAKE THIS A CLEAN FIGHT o/

EDIT: It's over (faster than I thought)! If things go all right, I might make two drawings. See ya all next time!
and not an important message either, just taking the old journal out of the way :3
Just noticed I'm reeeeally close for the 16k views already, and I JUST posted the previous one moments ago, so for now I'd like to take the time to focus on some personal drawings and try to learn new things out of that. I MIGHT make a kiriban for the next one (17k), depending on how productive I'll be and my drawing mood I guess :P

I'll be starting some livestreams around this month , and for the next one I'll be setting up everything needed to hopefully start making commissions too.

So yeah, don't go around screencapping my page this time!

As many might have noticed, I've been completely inactive for the past months because I have been preparing my thesis, which ate most of my free time and will to do anything really.

Wether it goes right or wrong (considering the suffering from the past days, I really hope its not the later option >_>), I'll be done with this next thursday, so I'll increase activity right after that.

Just giving you all a heads up! I'm not entirely dead yet!

EDIT: Oh yeah, and thanks for all the new watchers! I normaly reply to each watcher and comment (not favs tho, too much work, but the love is still there!) I get on my inbox, but... yeah! Fuck my time!
The winner has been decided! Cya'll next time! Will post the drawing as soon as  get it done (which as I said will take its time)

-------------------------------------------------

Yeah, again.... I shouldn't really be doing this, since I'm busy as fuck, but it doesn't hurt to at least get someone to reserve a spot so I have something to draw when I get more free time :D. Whoever the winner is WILL have to wait for his drawing though (probably a lot), so take that into consideration!

Copypasting from previous journal 'cuz I'm also lazy!

Post an image with the pageviews exactly at 15000. Same rules as the previous one applies koidrake.deviantart.com/journa… with the addition that I will only take someone that is ALREADY watching me to be the winner, to avoid any outsider to randomly stumble around here and f5 away to get a free drawing, not that it happened on the previous one, I'm just taking precautions here :)

And just a note: Avoid requesting me to draw any weird fetish or porn stuff (there could be other things I wouldn't draw, but you can test me on that), I will decline to your request if that's the case whoever the winner is.

So yeah! Good luck!

And sorry :iconxxrskxx: and :iconterrormokes:, but since I want to give a chance to someone else, I won't let you guys participate on this one! The curse shall be lifted after this kiriban is done tho :3

As for the subject of the drawing, since I'm too lazy to type what I'm willing to draw, I'll wait till the winner gets chosen, and if I don't want to make the request then I'll let you know. For starters I wont make any porn or any weird fetish I see so commonly around dA.

EDIT: Well well we had two winners, and the drawings have been posted already! Congrats to the lucky guys and thanks everyone else who F5ed to get to that number of viewers, hope to cya all next time :).

I will make a journal for the next kiriban I feel like making, so don't try to post a screencap of the 12k before I say so, because I still don't know if I'll have the time when I get to that number :P

---------------------------------------------------------

Well, 6 days ago I was thanking everyone for 10k, and I'm already almost near the 11k pageviews! They do grow a lot when I'm not lazy :D

So, since I've been thinking about starting commissions, I wanted to first get a taste of what's to come by giving one drawing away for free! There is a catch though (and I'm pretty sure most of the kids arounds dA know), and it is that you must post a screencap with the main page of my account when the pageviews hit the 11000 mark. I know a thing or two about Photoshop, and I WILL know if you edit the number in, so don't you ever think of doing that >:^(

Whoever post first the screencap will get a free drawing made by moi, with the content of it up to discussion. If, after a couple of days, no one claims the award, then I will take whoever gets a screencap with the numbre closest to it (the number being OVER the 11k), so just in case save those images somewhere in your computers :)

Cya around!
Just noticed the 10k views, I'm taking the chance to get that old journal away and thank everyone who walked around these desolated lands, the drinks are on me!

I must apologize for my lack of activity around dA too, I've been really busy lately, so I don't have much time to draw because of that. You will all notice when things settle down once I post drawings more often, hopefully that time will come soon.

I'm also THINKING (caps because I'm still not sure) of starting with commissions around mid-July, I'll give more information about it later on, but I might open a few slots to test how things go, and if I can handle the schedule, I'll keep adding more slots. Just giving a heads up!
I'm copying :iconblackhook: and showing all the daily drawings in the journal. Not like anyone should care, it's just for my own amusement, so don't mind me...

Taking of the "New Year" journal outta my page, that's kinda outdated. OVER AND OUT!
Happy New Year everyone!

This year was filled with a lot of wonderful surprises, and despite the stress of the later months, this one was a year to remember.
I hope everyone had a great year as well, and that 2012 will be even better.

See ya'll next year (still a few hours left here)!
That other journal is old as hell, so I decided to update it with some random news of mine.

I've been slowly getting back to drawing again after a bunch of really busy weeks, but I still don't have enough time to make fully colored drawings (or rather, I do, but I prefer to make many drawings on that little time, and when I get the chance flesh them some more). That means I'll be posting occasional doodles (nothing new here :P)

You can still get this book made by :iconvega-mationpress:, with some great and original artworks from some talented artists (and me! XD)
You can find more info about this at Vegamation's account, or at their site (here: www.vegamationpress.com )

I am also working as one of many clean-up artists for Skullgirls (site here: skullgirls.com/), an awesome fighting game made by Reverge Labs (revergelabs.com/), and with only a few assignments made so far I feel I learned quite a lot from this. If you don't know anything about this game, search it on youtube or something, it's looking pretty badass so far!

That's all! I apologize for my lack of activity, hopefully this will change soon.
Just a reminder, Introducing Volume 3, made by :iconvega-mationpress: is already in stores!

The book showcases 8 amazing and original drawings for each invited artist, which are:
