Commissions info [OPEN]

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 19, 2016, 1:12 AM



Exactly as the title says - I'm now open for commissions again (: It's definitely been a long time since i've been here, and I don't think i'd be too active here either - but you can better contact/chat with me via my tumblr (@girlwiththewhiterabbit) or twitter (@ circus_usagi). 



Commission types

these are small commissions and therefore are priced differently from how i'd quote professional/commercial pieces! so you can use these for your personal use and not for resell/book publishing/mass production etc.

Prices (AS OF 19th SEPTEMBER 2016):







-Commissions are in PNG format /w transparent bg

-Prices are in USD

-Will draw OCs and fanart

-I do not draw furries, mecha, full armor

-I will work according to a first-come-first-serve basis

-I’ll try to complete your commission within 3 weeks of payment

-The sketch will be sent to you for approval before any painting starts

-One minor edit is accepted for the final commission outcome

-Simple requests can be accommodated (i.e. plain color bg, extra version sized for phone bg, etc)

-For large size printing, additional costs may be incurred



Rules

-Payment via PAYPAL only; I will give you the Paypal email to send the money to after the commission details have been received and confirmed 

-For Singaporeans living in Singapore, bank transfer is ok! (pls note USD to SGD exchange rate)

-I require 100% payment before starting on any commission

-Visual references for OCs required or additional fees will be incurred

-Please direct your commission questions to me via Note

-Do not use these commissions for commercial use/mass production/resell etc, these are for personal use only

-I retain the copyrights to the artwork

-There may be limits to my artistic abilities as to what I can draw, (thus the no mecha/full armor rule) but feel free to discuss with me your ideas and we’ll see if it’s possible to go ahead with the commission!



Extra Notes

If there was a style I did that you prefer the commission to be done in, we can discuss it first, but do note that different styles will incur different prices, as compared to the ones shown above (dependent on the style and how long I feel I would take)



Contact

Email: sync_sensation @ hotmail.com (without spaces)

In your email pls put 'Commission' or something similar in the title, thank you!

Tokyo game show '14

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 10, 2014, 5:49 AM



/suavely slides into the seat next to you/ hello we meet again :eyes: Now i seriously hope photobucket wont give me anymore shit like suddenly deciding to make people pay for the storage space that was CLEARLY free for like, YEARS. That was kinda why i stalled posting my Canada trip photos here..maybe i'll make a journal about that next month..?

so yea, i was at Tokyo Game Show last month with 2 of my ex-colleagues. we had 2 business days there, 1 public day (for fun), and 3 extra days free and easy to roam around Tokyo..!! :dummy: I WILL NEVER TIRE OF TOKYO so, i jumped at the chance to enter TGS for free! i didn't bring enough money to buy all the things i wanted in all the anime shops, but AS LONG AS THERE'S A NEXT TIME THERE ARE NO REGRETS.

LETS GO

Tokyo game show journey



STARRING IN MY OWN ANIME THIS SUMMER 2014


i duno i probably took this shot for reference or something


it says tachibana manabe but my mind read it as TACHIBANA NANASE (/cries tgt w all the makoharu fans)


we stayed at this dormy inn hotel (black building), which was pretty neat.


i never stayed alone in a hotel room before, and it was actually kinda rad.. /spreads toiletries everywhere n disregards cleanliness
i took ten fucking ages to figure out how to operate the light switch HAHAHAA


the mascot of the hotel is actual iwatobi-chan


FOR THE LIFE OF ME FOR 3 DAYS I COULDNT PRONOUNCE IT ANYTHING OTHER THAN MAKOHARU MESSE


Ruronin Kenshin at his day job

Off to tokyo!

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 16, 2014, 6:06 AM
omg i am writing this last minute cuz i could not connect to dA's server for the past few days.. in a few hours time i will be on a plane to Tokyo for the TOKYO GAME SHOW WHEEEE /dad just told me he heard of a recent earthquake in tokyo over the news ;__; Actually, it's my ex-company that happens to have a booth there, so im going there to help(?) or whatever but i won't let this chance slip by 8DD i haven't had enough sleep and only just finished packing my main luggage!

Then this weekend i'll move off to inner tokyo to stay at an inn - CHANCE TO SHOP FOR ALL THE ANIMU <33 aahhh so many travel journals this year, so blessed..!! (TOO BAD I HATE PLANES LOL) This is the first time i'll be sorta alone in a foreign country SOBS but well at least it's japan! i am DOKI DOKI ALL OVER and also a but apprehensive cuz im not goin with any girls, so i'll be in the hotel and inn rooms alone >.> S-SO LONELY!???

so just a heads up! The hiatus will last until 23rd night when im back~ BUT THEN THE FOLLOWING WKEND I HAVE TO GO TO BALI ahahahaaa i am just sad i can't afford an awesome camera..have to rely on my 100yr old trusty cam from the dinosaur age that runs out of batt like every 2 hrs LOL

BUT WELL YEAPS more travel journals ahead! :la: Take care, guys! and well i will probably still be on my tumblr so u can get me there =)

my deviantArt story

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 10, 2014, 4:13 AM
Random, YES. (for those who don't know, this is for dA's 14th bday! which im pretty late for, lol)

ahh i definitely have LOADS to say about my dA story, but i'll try to cut things down a bit! I actually had several bookmarks of my fav dA artists for maybe like a year, before i finally decided to take the next step and join dA, under the influence of friends in college at that time. Being surrounded by like-minded artists kind of gave me that courage, i guess. I was very new to digital art then, and was still learning the ropes and testing waters...i got my first ever tablet and was SO UNCOMFORTABLE using it at first (and before design school i had ZERO clue about what a tablet was AHAA) But i adapted surprisingly quick and my intuos3 baby's been with me for like 8-9 years now :heart:

The Emperor by circus-usagi my dolls and I by circus-usagi Allen Walker by circus-usagi Happy Bday Lavi by circus-usagi

these are actually pretty much my 'turning point' deviations, in terms of my style and how i saw myself progressing as an artist. I developed a rather...odd(?) style of painting in photoshop because i didn't explore brushes or pen sensitivity and didn't discover the airbrush until much later ^^; so everything was made using the default Hard Brush, with opacity lowered. I was also so afraid of COLOR, i basically used a worn-out B/W sure-win formula to churn out ok-looking stuff. It was a very careful, unintentionally-watercolor-like style, and was not exactly true to my nature. The Lavi pic was when i eventually found the Airbrush oTL;; and when i first utilized it. Now i am Airbrush's slave.

Dream Within A Dream by circus-usagi Dream to Nightmare by circus-usagi Devil in the details by circus-usagi steampunk bouya by circus-usagi f a w n e by circus-usagi

there was like, a period of time where i would try to make everything as colorful as possible, LOL. It's like every color of the spectrum had to be on it or it wouldn't cut it for me x'D After that i kinda mellowed into using a lot of brownish palettes cuz i found that that was what i was most comfortable using (and am still very inclined to use brownish palettes).

On another note! i can say that im most thankful of the friends that i made here on dA =D The sad thing is that i lost contact with a LOT of them now D: but each and every one has helped me improve and push myself and just acted as a pillar of support when i needed them to be (both during personal and artistic struggles) and for that i am forever thankful (:

Beyond repentance by circus-usagi steampunk arora by circus-usagi boy with his hedgehog by circus-usagi  Midnight Kings by circus-usagi that was then, this is now by circus-usagi

I post a great deal of fanart here on dA (though nowadays, not as much as on my tumblr lol) but the thing most requested and most loved (all my DDs in fact) are my original characters AND IF THATS NOT TOTALLY RAD I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS :heart: I appreciate all the support you guys have given towards these babies that i put my soul and heart and blood to manifest out of nothing onto paper, so that they may breathe life and be free from the wreck that is my mind!!! At least with them drafted out, they can finally stop screaming within my head for me to let them out /cries ok that sounds creepy

Terrarium Series 3 by circus-usagi Terrarium Series I by circus-usagi Terrarium Series 2 by circus-usagi

At this point, I feel like i STILL HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO, when art style and technique is concerned. Essentially, i still haven't 'found' myself as a person, so, to decisively stick to one fixed art style is something I often find poisonous for growth. i like trying new things, im just working on subduing my tendency to procrastinate LOL. And i hope to continue on this artistic journey of self-discovery until one day i can finally hit that first niche, look back once at the long way i came up from, and keep marching on into the wilderness with the courage and curiosity of a freaking ten-year-old..!! =)

And as always, a big thanks for all the +watches, favs and comments!! :love:

(10 sept '14 EDIT: OOOHHH FUUCCK U PHOTOBUCKET I AM LEAVING YOUR ASS)

BOY WHAT A TRIP. it was a first for me, being in the US! AND GOLLY, NY! HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT IT, ALL OVER IN THE MOVIES, MEDIA, NY NY, BIG APPLE, CONCRETE JUNGLE..... and well maybe London and Tokyo (other city states in various parts of the world) kinda spoiled it for me, lol, but i found New York just okay. probably just isn't to my taste. I ALSO BLAME IT ON THE SEASON LOL whenever im on holiday in another country's summer, ITS JUST UGGHH i put up with summer 365 days a year already, so a vacation doesn't feel like a vacation when the temperature barely changes after 20+ hrs of travel time Llama Emoji-08 (Crying) [V1] ALSO, I GOT THE STRANGEST TUMMY ACHE FOR DAYS after eating a trippy, over-priced ice cream from one of those ice cream vans (why dont ppl put prices on the stuff man, how i know u not charging me extra). IT SUCKED cuz i couldn't even sit up right in the mornings but ok it was bearable for the most part and i was fine after like 3 days!

ANYWAYS here's kinda a summary of the whole thing! (excluding Boston and Canada CUZ IM CLOSE TO 200 PHOTOS IN THIS JOURNAL IM TRYIN TO CUT DOWN) There will be a second part later on, i promise!!

i didn't bother trying to find the hole
IS THERE EVEN A HOLE OR IS THE ARTIST JUST TROLLING


OOOOOOO FAAAMMMOOOUUUSSSS again


mother father SUPERSTAR of the museum!! BUT NOT as big of a superstar as the mona lisa is in the Lourve (that crowd was INSANE) BUT JUST LIKE THE MONA LISA I DIDNT THINK IT'D BE THAT SMALL AHAHAHAA


I DIDNT SEE THE FACE AT FIRST /SCREAMS


i hope this is an earnest spelling error upon what is clearly a broken WINDOW but hey maybe it IS widow and this is some deep shit i never considered.


a colorful something again before we leave MoMA!!

so we walked down another way back to the hotel towards the NY public library~


(NOT FROM THE PUBLIC LIBRARY BUT)
PERFECT BOOK FOR THE STRANGE N ROOD ICE CREAM DUDE WHO SOLD ME SOME BAD ICE


BABY U SO NICE N COOL WHY U GOTTA DO THAT TO MY GUT.


Bryant paaarrrkk which was so pretty and bright and DAMMNN people actually sitting and playing in parks and doing work and chilling n stuff!!
the weather was so good during our first few days in NY!!


AND DAAAAYYUUUMMMM :la:
WHY SO PERF. in the middle of the park is this shelf filled w books to read and i just :heart:


why don't we have shit like this in sg?? OH WAIT YEA WE CAN'T EXACTLY TRUST THE KIND OF PEOPLE IN PUBLIC ANYMORE SO.


ACTUALLY in the NY public lib which has fantastic architecture inside and out but i am trying to save space by not posting the photos lol!!


OKAY I WILL POST A FEW PHOTOS

old b/w photos always creep me out no matter what the context!!


AND LASTLY, ONE OF MY FAV CHILDHOOD STORY BOOKS GAAAA :heart:


So we continued walking!! actually, it was kinda nearby (i think) so we headed here first to check out grand central terminal.


THATS THE SCENE IN THAT MOVIE WHAT WAS THAT MOVIE OH WAIT EVERY MOVIE HAA


LINE EM UP. actually, the firemen in NY are WAAY WAAAAYYYYY HOTTER than the police (JUST A CASUAL OBSERVATION)
too bad i didnt get a good pic of actual firemen (I WAS ACTUALLY JUST EMBARRASSED CUZ i was so close to em)

well i think after this we trudged back to the hotel to pass out and wake up to the next day!!


TBH I DONT QUITE SEE THE COOLNESS OF ALL THIS TIMES SQUARE BUSINESS


we had lunch at this cool place called Ruby Tuesday and was served by the cutest gay waiter
ITS FUNNY CUZ IN NY all the exteriors look so simple and like ehh BUT WHEN U GO INSIDE EVERYWHERE ITS A WHOLE DIFF STORY i kinda like that abt NY!! (at ruby tues we were guided to an upstairs section which was way bigger n we couldnt even tell it was there from the outside)


THEN WALK WALK WALK 325672 STREETS TO CENTRAL PARK WHEEE GREENERY
ITS LIKE A LIL CITY ON ITS OWN LIKE WHHHYYY DID THEY MAKE A PARK SO BIG IN THE FIRST PLACE??


HORSSSEEE /FOAMS


the greenery is so fresh and lush and just kinda well-kempt!!
it must take one hell of a gardener team to keep this place in shape!


and like EVERYONE was crowded around this shit taking photos with it (we came on a weekend too), its a damn miracle i even got this pic without humans.


also, there were some good singers doin the Beatles everywhere here


/i am a good photographer i say to myself w a tear in my eye


SHAKESPEAR GARDEN WHHHEEE i didnt know what to expect i just wanted to check out some place that was named after a famous dude.


the EVERYTHING was pretty! very quaint and picturesque at every corner!


and also, little quotes hidden all over from the books.


ITS LIKE SOMETHING FROM A DREAM, I TELL U.


uughhhh /cries at all the quotes i dun even know why i nv even read the books


I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING
CUZ IT'S WHAT IM THINKING TOO.

SQUIRREL :heart: /SCREAMS


AND YAAYY atraction for the day is Natural History Museum where i actually got pretty excited cuz i have a thing for BONES and just extinct things in general.

EXIT the museummmm!! and yea we took the metro back (pic above is from the subway at natural history) where we almost got cheated by some dude at the ticketing machine selling people metro tickets for EIGHT DOLLARRRSSS. YO if i had to pay $8 for a single ride ticket it better take me to freakin KONOHA or some shit.


TIMESKIP NEXT DAY~! we ate macs for breakfast twice cuz WIIIFFFIIII
and the place was kinda cool.


Nearby the hotel, too! MAYBE THIS PLACE WAS LIKE A BIG THING BACK IN THE OLD DAYS but i am sorely disappointed w this dept store!! OVERPRICED SHHIIIITTT and the stuff is not even nice, yo. if you're sgporean this is like...OG. seriously.


FIRST CHINESE DINNER IN NY HAHHAA actually we just wanted to see how they cook asian food.
verdict.....THIS IS A FKING DISGRACE WHAT DID I JUST EAT lol. but errrr EDIBLE, i suppose. AND THEY GAVE US A HEEELLL LOT too so we gave like half of everything to some homeless people I HOPE IT MADE THEIR NIGHT YEA even tho it really isnt the best chinese food u can get here.. oTL;;


I DIDNT GO SEE STATUE OF LIBERTY CUZ SRSLY WHY WOULD I IT'S JUST A STATUE IN EVERY FREAKIN MOVIE EVER.


RAANNDDOOOMMMM at F21! and i did buy it in the end!
i DUNO WHY I AM BECOMING SOME FLORA FAUNA ACTIVIST HERE but i suddenly have a liking for the flowery stuffs.


OH THERE IT IS. the channel that no one watches anymore.


WAHAHAA IT'S PRET.


UMM i guess it's just the major walking around on foot a lot but i found i could eat a lot more than i thought possible lol.


/DESPERATELY BUYS FRUITS TO SHIT BETTER AT NIGHT.


True!

After lunch we were gonna meet my aunt and her bf to walk around and so that they could drive us all to Boston and then Montreal woot~
but before that i did some last minute browsing at Urban Outfitters!! I ACTUALLY RLY LIKE THE PLACE i want one so badly in sg!! (not for the clothes but the funky stuff they have)


I DUNO, i got this to give to friends cuz i thought it was so......LITERAL.


frighteningly expensive and useless merch!!


some actual useful merch!


oh i actually took this pic to serve as like a footer for this journal but now i think it looks stupid out of context ahahahaa


OOHHH SO PRETTY there's so many pretty places in NY i just wish i had the time to SIT AND TAKE IN THE AIIIIRRRR


A GIFT PERFECT FOR AN ASSHOLE LIKE ME.


i will fill my rooms one day w cute plants in cute pots like this i swear.


niiiccceeeee i just kinda forgot what these were.


i went out by myself for a bit to explore the more errr neighborhood-ish areas i guess.
and...OMG.


YAAYYY FRESH PUPPIIIEESSSS :heart:


LITTLE RASCALS!! a BIG BURLY MAN also came up to this window at the same time and we were like cooing together lol it was weird.
 the people who worked here were so friendly n sweet!
which is great cuz u need GOOD PEOPLE to look after these innocent little things!!


AND I FOUND A POOCH WHO LOOKS LIKE MY POOCH!! :heart:


Alrighttttyyyy!! on the way back to meet my aunt and i found a cool tea place!
this one is HIBISCUS GINGER TEA it is overpriced but amazing.


From here, we were walking to West Village!! saw some rad, expensive apartments along the way.


ALSO SAW THIS AHAHAHAA AND I DID NOT EXPECT TO SEE THIS HERE i actually didn't even know it was in NY AHAHAHAA
Flat iron building!!


there are some seriously beautiful shops around here, just NO TIME TO SEE THEM ALL.


AND NO MEANS TO BUY STUFF LIKE THIS BACK.


ALONG THE WAY WAS THE FARMERS MARKET GYYAAAHHHH i always wanted to visit a farmer's market gosh i duno, IT JUST SOUNDS COOL and i expected some fancy fruits.


common fruits but oddly shaped!


TEH COLORSSS /spazz


SO PRETTYYYY i wanted the dry flowers but ugghh i will probably be detained at the airport or smth cuz MAYBE LAVENDERS CARRY SOME RARE STRING OF DISEASE WHO KNOWS.


not that cheap, though! considering this came straight off the farm.


PUURRTTYYYY COLOORRSSS.


aahahhahaa YEA i had to.


FANCCYYYY. EXPENSSSYYYY.


THIS IS CLEARLY THE MOST AWESOME THING EVER.
marshmellow chocolate pizza. how did someone manage to fit 3 of my fav things into one food.


still on the way to Greenwich!! or was it west village..oh wait are those the same things. ahhh /forgets everything


i didnt manage to explore like every little shop here which is kinda a bummer.


but yea! walk walk walk. nice little apartments above, too.


OKAY yup west village it is.


CAN SOMEONE PLS CONFIRM THIS /W ME DOES THIS MEAN IT'S A RESTAURANT RUN BY MAFIA??
THE CURTAINS ARE ALL DRAWN IN MID DAY AND IT'S AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT TOO.
(this was what my aunt's bf told me n im inclined to believe)


granny bikes with flowers EXCITE MY SENSES.


cute little place but i remember whatever they were selling didnt appeal to me at all LOL


what.


i feel you, man.


DON'T TELL ME HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE, RANDOM GRAFFITI.


NOT LOOKING ANYMORE, I HOPE, mr mugshot.


PICS OF BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE TO SHAME THE REST OF THE WORLD.


oh gawd i seen many pidgeons here but thankfully NONE OF THE REST.


DAT CUTE BUNNY WAS STARING INTO MY SOUL from across the street but shucks we were headed in another direction.


huurrrr. little italy reminded me somewhat of barcelona.


and there you have it in writing.


/EVERYONE STOPS TO TAKE PHOTOS OF THIS, BLOCKING MY VIEW and i simply curse


why all the pretty things don't come to sg /sobs


where we ate that night!


DONT TRUST PEOPLE WHO ORDER A SALAD AND NOTHING ELSE.


first time eating bread with olive oil!! i didn't think it'd taste so good!


sorry for bad pic of Rice to Riches BUT THERE WAS A FIRE TRUCK RIGHT IN FRONT HERE IT WAS CRAAAZZZYY (can u spot the one fireman) and YAS this was where i saw my first fireman UP CLOSE AND HE WAS SO HOT I UUGHGGHGSFHJaklfgdhf


BACK TO THE FOOD.
this is rice pudding(?) AND TASTES SURPRISINGLY COOL. i'd totally find this place again to try other flavors! AND THE BOWL THAT U GET TO KEEP IS TOTALLY CUTE TOO.


MY LIFE PHILOSOPHY


JESUS DROPPINGS.
i repeat, JESUS DROPPINGS.


these were HILAARRIIIOOUUUSSSS i wish i had a poster of all these instead of like $3 per magnetic strip that ive nowhere to place.


YUUUMMMM but i guess the rice-grainy texture might not be to everyone's taste.


SAME.


WELL, on to the next day when i think the main thing we wanted to see was the UN (which was closed lol) and the 9/11 memorial~


NANANANA NANANANA------


WHY IS IT everytime i am faaarrr away from home, some celebrity decides to die and make news and thats all i see for the next couple of days but NOOOO NOT U ROBIN WILLIAMSSSS DD:
i didnt even know he was suffering so bad he had to take his life??


MORE SADNESS.
i duno in NY, but my aunt from canada says she once gave a homeless dude (he was acting crippled) a buck, and the moment she turned away, he hopped off PERFECTLY FINE and into a waiting car. I DONT GET IT YOU'RE JUST SPOILING IT FOR THE ACTUAL HOMELESS PEOPLE DAMMIT.


WHAT IS THIS at the subway?? ILLUMINATIIIII???


here we are! it was such a gloomy and rainy day, too!
A white rose is put on the victim's name when it's their birthday....
/BAWLS MY EYES OUT UGGHH WWHHHYYYY


I DUNO IF THIS WAS ON PURPOSE BUT the mere SOUND of the water pouring down was SO SAD. so SAD. I CANNOT EXPLAIN IT it's like..even tho there were a lot of people cuz its a touristy area, the water flowing down is very prominent and THE FEELS u get from listening to it just....i duno. I LEGIT FELT LIKE CRYING HERE. IF NO ONE WAS AROUND I PROBABLY WOULD'VE.


Okay so it's the last day in NY! we didn't have much time cuz we had to drive to Boston (its like 4hrs to there) so we had a nice breakfast at this awesomely-decorated caffe bene nearby the hotel.


I LIKE THE WAY BAKERIES ARE HERE. even tho i am pretty sick of all the bread already, i just like the bakeries.


this needs a place in MoMA.


ive never been awake so early on a holiday.


WELL, TIME TO RIDE OFF.
AND DAMMIT, we passed by awesome streets we didnt get to see before! MAYBE NEXT TIME!


i took these all from the car so, anyway it said MALE VIEWING ROOMS. i suppose this means male strippers?
imma gonna see one of these next time YAASSS I AAMM.


YAY! and a stopover between NY and Boston! ITS SO CLEAN /W WIFI AND ACCEPTABLE FOOD PLACES (so unlike the stops btw sg and msia gawd)
STAY TUNED for the next entry on Boston and Montreal! =D

to be continued!

OMG this entry totally beats my Japan trip journal from years ago!!

WELL WHOEVER U ARE WHO STAYED ON TO READ THIS TIL THE END, i hope u liked the pics at least!! i hope to get a better cam with much better battery life span and anti-shake next time LOL.

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 31, 2014, 7:34 AM



I HAS A SUB ★ I HAS A SUB. I CAN FEATURE PEOPLES NOW o((*^▽^*))o gawd, when was the last time i did one of these OPPS WHAT 5 YRS AGO AHAHAHA yea it's been a while since my last premium membership i don't even know what else i can do anymore 'cuz they already enabled pics for journals but i don't think non-subs can have the thumbnail thing right..?

and also, even though i said dA is my one true love, the truth is that i've not been very active here the past few years and i wld like to remedy that! yup! starting this year, i'll be hanging around more often! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ ...y-yeah.. /doesn't change the fact that im a sorry ass

OKAY I THINK THESE ARTISTS are cool and like u need to check them out otherwise you're probably missing out on life so go stalk them i mean yea one can never have too many stalkers, that's what i believe!

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Hey yo!! So i recently opened an online store in Dec for those of you who're interested in getting my merchandise but could not attend the conventions i go to~

Visit the store here!

Do check it out if you’re interested in getting some of my stuff for yourselves or as gifts for others! i’ll also be happy to sign prints if so requested (: so yea! for those of you who did not manage to get a commission slot from me this time, perhaps u'll be interested in some of the stuff i've already done, so do have a look! \( ‘з’)/ there's quite a number of stuff from my gallery available there, and others i don't post here on dA.

I'm planning to ship all orders by the end of Jan 2014, so the shop will be closed after CNY, until i come up with some new merchandise (:

Thanks for dropping by! (*≧▽≦) Llama Emoji-09 (Drinking Tea) [V1] 

i will be opening commission slots again after the current batch is done, so those interested in checking out the status of the commissions, pls go here: circus-usagi.deviantart.com/jo… ! (:

HAVE A GREAT DAY! :heart:

hello dearies! i'm opening up digital art commissions (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ i am in dire need of money (as always) mainly to pay for my extra classes rn!

i have some slots filled already by people from tumblr, so if you want to get a commission from me, please send a Note or email me via sync_sensation @ hotmail . com and i'll get back to you asap! (:

these are small commissions and therefore are priced differently from how i'd quote professional pieces! so you can use these for your personal use and not for resell/book publishing etc. here are the types of commissions i'm offering at the moment:







in case you can't view the images:

Chibi: $5
Portrait in b/w: $7
Portrait in color: $10
Waist-up color: $20

Full-body color: $50

(updated as of 17 March 2014)

all commissions do not come with bg, just a simple color fill or pattern. you must be comfortable with me posting the finished works on either dA or on tumblr.

fyi: sorry but i will not draw certain subjects i.e. yuri, hentai etc. (please take a look at my gallery to get an idea of what i usually draw)

if you’re interested, drop me an email at sync_sensation @ hotmail . com or send me a Note!
give me links of character refs if any, n tell me which commission type u want and i’ll get down to it once i have confirmed your payment through Paypal \( ‘з’)/ (all prices shown are in USD) Works are done on first come first serve basis! I will tell u my Paypal add after you've sent me your interests! (:

if you don't fancy a commission but would like to help, a signal boost would be great! :heart:

THANK YOU for taking the time to drop by!! Have a great day!! o(≧∇≦o)

  • Listening to: free! soundtrack
Hey guys! ( ▽ ` )ノ i know it's been a long time since my last dA entry, and i can honestly say, it was not because i was lazy (LOL rly), but because i did not have a sub and things just look uglier without a theme, so i thought it'd be best if i kept the journal with pics on the front page, HAHA (ノ*゜▽゜*)

so yes, i created a new fanpage on Facebook just today, and it'd mean the world if you guys went there to Like it or comment on something :la: :heart: Here it is: www.facebook.com/Cirque.de.bla…

yup, that's Cirque de Blanc, the group that has actually been in existence since...possibly as far as 6 years ago! If any of you actually remember it! xD It currently consists of me and my friend Little-kaiyou-Kame but you might see some stuff like us pimping good art from other artists sharing our booth. But we'll post merchandise-related stuff so that you can check out the goodies, and occassionally WIPs of up-coming merchandise for conventions and perhaps some crack art, if we get enough Likes and people actively watching us xD

Oh, and do feel free to Note me on dA to find the actual!me on FB, LOL! to be honest i haven't been active on FB for a good...2-3 years maybe..? So this will also be a learning journey for me, managing a fanpage and all.

And NONO this doesn't mean i'm moving from dA or anything, i just wanted you guys to know about it, if you happen to hang on FB more often than here! You guys - whom i consider the very first people i shared my art with online, over 6 years ago! :love: GRANDMA LOVES U ALL THE MOST DON'T FORGET THAT <3 Please support us there, i'll be forever grateful! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

And have a great week ahead, youngins!!

Cosfest report!

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 16, 2012, 6:22 AM
  • Listening to: hey mr. muuusic~


I have to admit, my head is still somewhere in the clouds after Cosfest that weekend ヾ(*´∇`)ノ It was a blast, as usual! Didn't really care about making mad sales this time; it was all about finally hanging out with the peeps on a weekend, spazzing over cosplayers (guuhh I wish more of my friends were into Kuroko no Basuke!!) And basically ogling at hot mens (well some in fact were girls but ehh that's a minor issue)

Ah, the beauty of imagination!

What went down

Let's break away from tradition here. No booth pic!! ゜(`Д´)゜
Yea, we were selling pretty much the same stuff, only displayed differently. It's the first con where i didn't have any new merchandise because of work commitments and i'm still feeling terrible about that. Well, on to the next con, yo.


...I should have stolen your shinigami mask in the end LOLOL but thanks for the free bottle of water you left behind on the second day! HAHA (・`ω´・)


Lucky Sephy... I mean..Sebby


Early in the day, and already, my new favorite person!! (* ̄з ̄)


Spotting the tall Kagami, I chased them down.


...And herded a Kuroko into the picture.
It would be pretty epic though, if any one of the GoM were to carry their Kuroko princess-style LOL I'd be standing first in line to take that pic.


All hail the gundam man! Never fails to impress ヾ(^∇^)


Warrior of Light (without the headgear). It's a boy! ヽ(;▽;)ノ


HOSHI APPROVES :heart:


These guys were so funny! Gahh I wanna cos something like this just so that i can pull off my usual expressions and still be in character!


I chased this one down too.


These guys were surrounded by photogs the whole time; couldn't really get a decent pic.
(this is a really zoomed in shot, minus the many cameras and arms and phones framing the shot)


Back into the tent and HOLAAAA~ :heart: o(≧∇≦o)
Kagami and Kuroko lookin every inch the BL material fab players that they are!


....H-HOLY..! KHR SEX!
...well, with our booth nearest to the stage, you get alot of the theatrics from time to time ('-'*)


Spiderman~ spiderman~
((come on now, you sang that in your head didn't you, hehe))


...YEAAHH!! MY IDOL IS HERE! :heart: ヽ(;▽;)ノ People were so excited to take a photo with him~


Ok finally got him alone!
But it seemed as though he couldn't tell where was his own head was facing.


Found an Ouran team! Then I realized i didn't even have both twins in the pic..??! ヽ(・_・;)ノ


I stalked them out the tent until we reached fairly open space (⌒_⌒; )
Kuroko and Kise..! Fast becoming my fav couple in Kurobasu.. Aomine is catching up though.


MIDORIN..! :heart:
I guess this is one of those instances when I don't quite like a character in a series, but a good cosplay comes along and totally wins me over (´・ω・`) S-She even had the frog! The frog..!! :heart:

This is a very, very biased journal entry on Kurobasu cosfest, can you tell..?


How biased can one get, is the question! \(T∇T)/
Cute Kurokoooo..!


:iconathensis: MOOEEE <3
Nigou was the BEST thing i laid my eyes on that day, thank you SO much for being such a sport! =)


YEEAA..! IKEMANS OF CLASS ZERO!! :love:
Makina and Trey (:


Group shot!! :love:


LOL this year's cosfest was very CNY. But hey, the guest cosplayers were all pretty hot! Even though i only learnt who they were on the day itself.

And yea! The obligatory cosfest loot shot!


Not alot! But spot the Kurobasu love!!


Pokefreak for life!! (/^▽^)/ It's time to stick them all over my DS..


my Kuroko and Nigou commission done by :iconpurspecktif: ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ
It's becoming tradition for me to commission at least one artist at any con..


YEAH MAN. Fear the squid. Ahh he makes me so happy.


Aaaaannnddd Kurobasu chibis by :iconknightcat:!!

Ahhh Cosfest, you've sated me. Sorta. (will never get enough of Kurobasu)

Well, I printed a hell lot of the popular stuff this time, so there are many leftovers, LOL! oTL;;

Back to reality

LEGASP. NEVER.

well, it's been fun, Fantasy. Can't wait to get back to ya.

Life updates-wise, I have been trying to catch up on my own stuff, apart from work. There's never really time, and the only time there is, I have to be somewhere, do something, meet someone .___.;; I can't wait to have one...just OONNEE weekend where I can sleep til afternoon, catch up on Japanese revisions, read a hell lot of manga, DRAW SHIT, write shit, anything personal! (*´;ェ;`*)

Ahhh the trials and tribulation of working life. Feels as though the only free time I have is spent at night, dreaming about other worlds.

Hope you guys are having a better time coping than I! =) I miss posting on dA and stuff >< Can't wait to get back on my feet and deliver something that will appease your senses! (* ̄з ̄) Have a great week, everyone! ..R-Remember...I still DO exist on dA! ;___;
