I’m almost at my donation goal!!! Thank you so much to all of you. This is going to mean a lot to my mom and hopefully provide a brief getaway from the medical nightmare she’s been dealing with. I’m sorry these examples aren’t great, but I threw them together quickly after I realized I couldn’t offer digital through gofundme. Your finished piece will be a lot more detailed and be on a sheet of A4 (or slightly larger) bristol board. And if you order the $50 option I will utilize a lot more color than just two markers. Prices include shipping.

Yeah… I’m doing one of those fundraiser things. Sorry.  I currently live and work in Japan teaching English as a conversational subject. My mother was recently diagnosed with a progressive form of MS (m
ultiple sclerosis). My contract doesn’t end until August 2015, and financial reasons do not permit me to void my work contact. So, unfortunately I can’t live close to her during this difficult time. I would like to pay her a visit this summer. My parents were originally going to take care of the plane ticket but I some things came up and I think the medical bills have been a bit overwhelming (my brother broke his wrist at around the same time). I want to see if I can surprise her and make it a special visit for her. I’m offering commissions to help with the fundraising… Sorry the prices are high but it takes me a very long time to draw.;;;

Reward levels have changed because GoFundMe’s partner WePay apparently doesn’t allow sale of digital media. All reward levels are now traditional media that is mailed to you. I’m going to update the information and examples accordingly but it will take a little bit of time. Really big thanks to everyone who has donated already. My mom is in a really difficult place with anxiety and depression due to health complications. I think this trip will mean a lot for her.

Anonymous: AHH HOW DO YOU DRAW SO WELL DO YOU LIKE DRAW EVERYDAY??

?!?!?! 

I try to draw every day but sometimes I don’t have the time. But I am going to seek work as an illustrator next year so hopefully that will change. Btw there’s a lot of bad and unfinished doodles that I never post here. Drawing as much as possible is definitely the key to becoming a better artist. I find I get a lot out of looking at other’s art and studying form from real life and photographs.

Anonymous: Do you have dA?

I have two accounts on there (yaru.deviantart.com, 8bitbadguy.deviantart.com). I don’t really use deviantart anymore though. Sorry!! Currently I am only active on Twitter and Tumblr.

Birthday present I drew last week for Haoro.

The hero’s eyes are a little off model from how I like to draw them in this sketch (irises too wide compared to game model) but I figured I’d post this sketch here anyway.
