Well, one of my personal nightmares has come true and my wrist has decided to give up on me. I've been putting way too much pressure on myself lately, and I suppose this is the natural result of spending 6, sometimes 7 days a week drawing for 8-15 hours a day with little to no breaks in between. This is a very serious reminder to myself that I am not a machine, and I need to stop neglecting my physical health.

I will take this situation as a blessing in disguise, as I have become increasingly disillusioned and frustrated with the work I've been putting out recently. I've completely lost focus over the past 2-3 years for various reasons, and I seriously need to re-evaluate where want to take my artwork and what kind of artist I would like to be. Life is short and I don't want to waste my potential.
My injury will force me to severely cut back on the hours I spend drawing, so over the next few months, I will be refunding the majority of my commissions. I'm incredibly sorry to those who have been waiting a long time for artwork, but I have to accept the reality that it is absolutely impossible for me to keep up with my current list. I've shot myself in the foot, taking on too many projects, drastically underestimating how long it would take me, and how much I should charge for my hard work. I'm truly thankful of the support I've gotten thus far, but my health is the most important thing.

This is incredibly difficult for me and takes all of my willpower to keep myself composed and not slip into depression or go mad with anxiety. Drawing is a huge part of my identity and the main way I keep myself sane, and suddenly losing my main outlet for stress has effected more than I would like to admit. Please be patient with me as I issue refunds over the next few months. If I contact you about a refund, please, please be considerate and don't fight with me or try to get me to change my mind.

Hopefully I will be able to resume drawing/posting work within the next couple months, but until then I guess I will be forced to do some soul-searching.
I suppose the good news is that I plan to return with a Youtube channel and maybe some tutorials and speed drawing videos. But until then, my various accounts will be dead so I wanted to inform people as to what's going on. 


Happy Holidays/New Year, and please remember to take care of yourselves. :/

I had a quick question ^_^ how can i get a commission done? i love your art style and i really loved your Sayaka soul gem. I want to get a tattoo of mami's soul gem and i was curious to see what you could create that is not too big of a design to get tattooed. Thanks and i hope to hear from you.

I won't be taking commissions for a while, sorry. It'd probably be best to have a tattoo artist come up with something for you.

Your artwork is amazing! :) I like to draw on toned paper too. It's nice to see more artists using it.
