Yoko Littner by ParenthesisX

It's sweet to see your approach to cosplay again~ Working the character's trademark hair and costume (both texture & design) well is im...

W.O.R.T.H by ParenthesisX

This piece, using sequential fragmentary captures gets the right balance b/w concise content & leaving the rest to viewer's imagination...

Through The Universe by LeCleurCircus

Realizing anything related to cosmos in serious light is a hard task, but this accomplishes such & is even more impressive that it's do...

Acto XIV - Futureless by Choco-menta

Extremely touching; you incorporate emotions based off "family" portrait pictures but through a different lens, more tender and subtle....




As of now I'm busy preparing and packing for a overseas errand-based work trip starting Oct. 30, and will return around Mid-November. Which means I won't have the fortune or luxury to celebrate :bulletorange::bulletblack:Halloween:bulletblack::bulletorange: or Dia de los Muertos. ㅠᆞㅠ

So hope you all get to have a great one. See you next month...
100th Deviation! Thank You So Much everyone here and :devart: for continuing to be the integral community for everything creative!
Brand Synthesis VII by Yasuki-Konno
Brand Synthesis VII
Hoshino Yanne-Souhi (Kanji translation still pending) may be the most demure & delicate out of the Garaku ruling class, yet she has a aura of sheer softness & the strongest capacity of Reiatsu energy than her companions, moreso than the [Five Lords] . While twists and turns in life enabled her "accidentally" to evade the cataclysm that ended the A.D. era she is pained to know that she wasn't able to save anyone at all. But there is hope as the new era following will allow some survivors & outsiders to enter a secret compliance that can possibly help lessen the worsening complications which the aftermath of "Anno Domini's end" is bearing down upon the world.

End spoilers... I'll go through details concerning this "end of A.D." someday, I promise...

Backstory babble aside, I think this Brand Synthesis girl may be my most personally favourite Garaku (Fukanami has Brand elements & skills embedded but is NOT wholly Garaku in origin) as everything came out as I planned be it from the curve of a line contour, flow of outfit or her still yet emotionally complex expression. I tried to make her style versatile which doesn't limit itself to Alternative/Scene while avoiding banality of everyday or retro wear. The outfits, the lion jewelry & the brand tying up her hair with a synthetic ribbon are from my imagination, except the fitted tee-shirt with the sleeve pocket is based off a real-life memory, worn by a friendly & charming person I've known in my past. :heart: All these came together without trouble or conflict while helping me work on my lineart & design sensibility so I'm grateful to have this as my 100th Deviation.

Here's to a productive future!
5 Lords of the Diamond by Yasuki-Konno
5 Lords of the Diamond
 The Brand Synthesizers ( 加樂 in Kanji. I really need to find a better name for this breed of gifted individuals as this sounds too much of a 80s power-pop tribute band name XD) are not defined by a certain gender or race but rather the talent & power to materialize matter to enhance themselves. Out of them, five Japanese girls with the most creativity and power range ended up being their leaders, each with their own hold of a select of shires or prefectures alongside some outward influential voice of their own choice of country, kind of like a quintuple alliance...

End Spoiler here...

These characters were constantly in change as I was definitely not sure how to individualize them without resorting to limiting each to a specific mode, but in the end I settled for a "patchwork mix" of Gyaru/Scene & assorted elements piecemeal for all these lords, haphazardly casual yet with that Alternative edge subtly hidden in the overall design's DNA. Especially proud of the two with the tank-top singlets mixed into their ensembles... :heart: Also I attempted a "organic, Asian-scroll paper" feel with texture & their name stamps.

Arise Arisen by Yasuki-Konno
Arise Arisen
After years of art-blocks & down-&-out moments I decided to re explore my stuff and draw my first OC once again, Fukanami Arise herself in powerful splendour. There's something wierd going on with the perspective with the dragon mecha & shield, but ignore it and just consider it looming in the distance. My bad...

(NOTE: This overall design is NOT mine's but rather from :icongothique-blackthorne:'s 1st Place GiftArt, her interpretation.) While I had to mostly work from an old saved thumbnail & memory while adding some technicial aspects of my own (she currently does not have it online after resetting(?) her account), it made me appreciate the potential fanart can give back to the original creators. So I thank her again for rejuvenating my creativity and help enhance my lineart part of my art-style.
  • Listening to: The GazettE- DogmA (esp. Deux, Blemish, & Dawn)
  • Drinking: liters of tea

No Features this entry... I rarely had the time to even surf the Net.

Recently my time has been the busiest both workwise and offline; not limited to abrupt moving of office yet again, a abrupt burst of all-nighter work and personal issues, hence my huge lack of activity here. Everything is firing at me from all cylinders and sides of the compass, the burden is near murder for me right now. Lastly I did not have Internet available for a few months.

...But it's not all bad news. Fortunately I found some large paper sheets which I can hopefully vent, continue to develop OCs and practice drawing larger scale stuff. Also I tend to still find a modicum of time after work to checking :devart: time to time even via smartphone. Its the sheer creativity here that helps me maintain my focus and optimism even through all this bustle. Only downside is that the printer press I frequently visited closed shop a few weeks ago sadly to say...

I do have a lot of ideas & thoughts (for various deviations that I tend to keep checking back and learning) set in my mind but I can't jinx it by guaranteeing set dates or promises. But it's defintely there and I really hope to eventually be more active again creative-wise here as I won't have it any other way. :star:

Sincere apologies once again that my current art-state is that of a dry spell. Hopefully this drought will soon end, not to worry.

Thanks and Regards,






Updated @ 2014.12.20 Afternoon:

A very nasty scenario has come true: After some needed time offline, I came back now, only to find that my Internet for some strange reason has stopped reading ANY site save for Google itself, not to mention letting me log in to anything. (I still can enjoy this site outside, but somehow Logging In results in "IE Cannot Display WebPage" error. Facebook, YouTube & Instagram it's this error from the start) I'm currently borrowing a friend's PC at the moment for this update.

I dunno what the cause(s) is, but I hope my case is not the only exception which has no solution (but to format my PC, that is). ㅠ.ㅠ I will try get my PC fixed once I'm done with this winter's share of work. My apologies yet again...

Updated @ 2015.9.20 Afternoon:
Currently listening to the GazettE's DogmA :cd: after all the busy rustles of Office Concertos for keyboards & Xerox 

Busy as ever, but thankfully my mind is clear of stress and I have weekends off which gives me time to continue working on my OC & their universes piecemeal. Still that means no "free-time" for going out, games or movies, but with my currently bought soundtrack as inspiration, the fact that I can instead save my earnings & have weekends to spend time with my family members is thankful enough! :star:


CityBent Pilgrim
I love creating original characters and concepts alongside fanart.
Despite loving colours, I am more used to technical detail/design and monochrome so I focus mainly on lineart. Never underestimate the dual power of line and imagination though!

Thank you very much, and hope you enjoy...
