Preorder it right here.
I know it's been a while since I last posted anything up here. This DA's turned into where I put up more finished works and, like I said, it's been a while. School's been really chewing up a lot of my free time, especially since it's my last semester before I graduate. Even so, I've started a long (and most likely slowish) project seen here. Feel free to follow or just tag along my personal tumblr where I post all of my loose sketches and ideas. I'm probably more approachable over there as well.

I hope you're all doing well and see you later!

Thank you everyone for sending me happy wishes on today, my birthday! Unfortunately I'm a little overcome with work (both from school and self imposed) and can't draw a picture to celebrate but I'm estatic that you guys took the time to send me greetings.

I love you guys!

(Pst, commissions also available. Never too busy for money) potentialforart.tumblr.com/pos… Cheaper prices!
For those who've been following me on tumblr, I've been practicing anatomy and how to properly construct the body but I've been finding myself losing interest in drawing in a way. I find myself disliking a lot of the things I do and end up scrapping them most of the time. I don't know how to fix this sort of predicament and I wonder if any of you have felt this way.

Do you have any potential solutions or ways I can motivate myself to like my pictures again? It's a difficult question, yeah but I don't feel I can give the art up completely.
Hey there everyone! I'm here open for commissions! AND SO ARE A BUNCH OF MY FRIENDS. (If you have commissions open, just drop me a line and I'll put you up here too!)

If you follow me on tumblr, you probably saw me updating with it! Now that I'm FINISHED. I'll post it up here through journals:
Part1: www.majhost.com/gallery/izuma/…

Part4: www.majhost.com/gallery/izuma/…
Hey there, grabbing a silly meme from Tumblr because, pretty much, that's where I've been posting most of stuff, sadly. That and I needed to shove over that journal that never happened.

But essentially, how would you describe my style? I like to think I've been gradually departing away from traditionally conceived anime and towards something a little more.. something else but who knows, these could be total illusions of grandeur. My tumblr here if you need something recent to refer to potentialforart.tumblr.com/

Any and all opinions are welcome, I just want to know what you think. Haha.
Hey guys, going to go to Ottawa pretty soon so I need some tips for traveling. Unfortunately, I HAVEN'T booked my flight yet and I can't do it online. If any of you guys have done it through a travel agent or something like that, some tips would be greatly appreciated.

Any estimates for costs or make a checklist for what I should bring would be great too. Thanks a lot everyone and I hope this trip will be a success!
Rules :
01 - You must post these rules
02 - Each tagged person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal
03 - You have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons on the same journal
04 - Go to their pages and tell them you tagged them
05 - No tag backs
06 - No crap in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you read this". You legitimately have to tag 10 peoples

1) I have a severe problem with biting my fingers. Not just fingernails but the flesh around my fingers. I've done this mostly around my right thumb. It's so bad that there's no longer any grooves indicating the fold of my thumb when I bend it. I'm pretty sure it's just been scabbed over with scar tissue.

2) Currently working on a comic idea with a friend of mine but we're having too much fun making little backstories for everyone that drawing the comic hasn't really come up... That and I'm busy with school. Soon though maybe. I hope.

3) I know a lot about Silent Hill and I get into violent fits about Climax's games of the franchise. It makes me cry so much. I appreciated Shattered Memories since it was more about the town rather than the cult but it made me feel like it was a different game that happens to be in Silent Hill rather than Silent Hill reimagined. Origins is hilariously horrible.

4) I have developed hateful relationship with bananas since my dad would force me to eat them for more than 14 years. I've also developed a hateful allergy towards them, now receiving a rash when I eat them.

5) I've never played a single Final Fantasy game in my life. I've only played Mario for a collective amount of an hour and I've attempted to play Legend of Zelda but never got that far (meaning never really left the first area.)

6) I have a startling obsession with object heads.

7) My room is completely made up of comic books that I've read only a few times. I should get around to reading it. Or selling it. We'll have to see which I do.

8) I have a somewhat basic understanding of French. If it's written, I could probably translate it. When spoken to me, I could maybe catch a few phrases; enough to get the jist of it.

9) When I play a game, I usually like playing support classes, healer or background people. I feel they suit me better than someone who frontlines all the time. Smash and hit may be easy but someone's gotta do the job no one else likes.

10) I feel compelled to wake up early in the morning. Times like 7: 30 or 6 am make me feel a lot better. I prefer to have a morning to wake up to instead of sleeping in. I do this whether or not I've stayed up late.

Tagging: :iconkalkie: :iconcorpse-face: :icondaughter-thursday: :iconnighthead: :iconaudioerf: :iconclaudetc: :iconreanimated-k: :iconrockaaar: :iconbeanjamish: :iconinokoo: (You guys don't have to if you don't want)
Hey guys! I'm back from MiniComi! I gotta say, I had a lot of fun! I woke up early and met up with my partner :iconsamkalensky: to set up our stuff. We had a bunch of pins, prints and my sketchbook set up.

Most of our pins sold well. Prints not so much but at least I'll be able to sell leftovers later! Haha. Saw :iconjakface: :iconjoodlez: and bought lots of stuff from everyone <3.

Met up with a lot of my friends like :icondarkenedxstar:, :iconcreatorsoul: (duh, one of the organizers), :icondaughter-thursday:, and :iconaudioerf: and a bunch of others whose DA I can't remember.  

There were quite a few cosplays that I liked over there: a bunch of Vocaloids, gentlemen folk, a steampunk man, and a FLIPPING GOLBAT. I NEVER THOUGHT I'D SEE ONE. I got a few photos myself since I was wearing a really fancy coat and a pair of cat ears. They kept asking what anime I was from and I was pretty sad to say that I wasn't from any anime. I'm pretty sure whatever anime that would have a princely cat eared glasses wearer would be... oddly popular with the girls.

The con lasted about 7 hours and we earned a good amount of money. I can't wait to go again next year!
For those interested in visiting me at MINICOMI at UBC this this July 23, our table and others are listed here nyurt.deviantart.com/journal/4… . Come on out and show a little love! (We're right at the entrance, you can't miss us. If you do then something's wrong and I'll wrangle you to our table myself.

EDIT: I decided to just put the picture here myself so you guys have some sort of visual context where I'm sitting.

I'm over there at B8. Go to the journal above for a probably more up to date listing. I'll be seeing you there!
AND PERHAPS OTHER PARTS OF ONTARIO. But yes, I will be going to Ottawa this summer. The date and whatnot is a bit up in the air but at least that much has been confirmed. Mainly heading over there to check out my main girl :iconnoxidassylem: but if you other guys happen to find me; all the more awesome! I'll get back to this journal again when I get a date.

School has been eating me alive so I'm not that active on DA but if you still want to see dumbass doodles, you can look at my tumblr here: potentialforart.tumblr.com/ (which looks better than before - thank you new formatting). Also previews for con stuff too!

Also I am getting to those prizes ;-;. And arts I owe people and ahhhhh everything everything in the world.

And it would be pretty flipping great if I could have a subscription. Gift art to anyone who does give me one. Afraid only sketches for now so feel free to just send over the 3 months one. I'm sick of ad blocking everything and then figuring out there's a million audio ones. 8I
My friend :iconblackharpygoddess: is having Spring Commissions for prices that are pretty damn good for the result. GO CHECK HER OUT IF YOU CAN.

And my friend :iconsprite37: wants to go back home so help him out by buying his stuff too! sprite37.deviantart.com/journa…

And another friend :iconnerinokukai: is going to be kicked out of the house! He needs money to find a new place to live so help the guy out!
Given with the amount of entries, I should have made this journal earlier but I had a busy day yesterday and today doing notes and stuff like that.

This will be split into categories as I believe that comics and still images can't be compared side by side.

STILL IMAGES:
First place: i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee…
Runner Up: fav.me/d3hpuab

COMICS:
First place: fav.me/d3hqhpy (I consider this a comic since it does show a progression of time.)
Runner Up: fav.me/d3hr1d6


Perhaps I'll try this contest again at a later date. Thank you to all (4) of you who joined and please note me with what you want for prizes! (I'd make it special thumbnailing but no sub this time! Sorry!)
AND THE CONTEST IS OVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I'll be collecting the entries and tabulating them into awesomitude judgingness.

Hey guys, from the results of the poll, I decided that going with the top two (maybe 3) picks is the best way to go about this!

So this is now the "Go on a Date with my Character" minicontest where you draw either a single image or a comic or whatever medium you want about you (or your character) going on a date with one of my characters! A date or an outing, whichever suits you. Do whatever you like!

:bulletred: Rules:
- Find yourself (or your character) one of my characters that you'd like to go out with (I'm sorry for the hideous amount of girls in comparison to boys)
- Draw yourself with them out on a date or an outting
- Submit to me through a note!
- Repeat (if you want, as many times as you want to)

:bulletred: How it'll be marked:
- Keeping in character is probably important but seeing as you guys probably haven't seen a lot of them, that's all right. Bonus points if you do keep them in character though!
- Keep it entertaining! Make it either romantic, funny, exciting - however you want it to be, make sure that you're enjoying it! (The character may or maynot feel the same way)

:bulletred: Deadline:
Probably going to set this a kinda long while since I got exams to get through so this contest will be due May 31 11:59 pm.

:bulletred: Prizes:
I can't really offer much but my art but it's a minicontest so that's ok.

First Prize: Colour commission of whatever you like as long as you follow the guidelines:
1. Anything with animals or anthros. (Never drawn them and I'm scared how it'll turn out XD)
2. Images with wacky perspective. (it'd be a bad thing to make me do perspective, be wary)

Second Prize: Colour chibi commission of whatever you like with the above guidelines

Third Prize: Monochrome sketch of whatever you like with the above guidelines

:bulletred: References:

Yeah there's a lot of them;; Sorry about that. I'll thin out the list of characters I have to hopefully make your lives easier.
