You pierced right through me.

Idk, hour and 15min before bed doodle. Sumi ink is fun, but a pain.
Blood Red
Turning my back on the sun, I wandered into the asylum garden
-Asylum Garden, Buck-Tick

I haven't used watercolors really in about 7 years, so this was an experimental attempt. These watercolors weren't lying when they were labeled 'radiant.' Jin as always. 
Barairo no Hibi
A friend bought some screentones off of me and she requested I send her a little drawing of Jin in the package, so this is what I drew&sent her.

Ink, copic, trad screentones
Yoooo, yeah I barely post over here anymore. I've found more enjoyable homes for myself on tumblr and twitter. BUT, I still wanted to give a little update here. 

Two things:

1) I'm going to be moving to Tokyo for at least a year starting in October 2018 if everything goes according to plan :D I intend to save up enough money to go to language school there for a year and we'll see how things pan out after that. Honestly, I'm stoked. It'd going to blow a ton of money and I have to save extremely aggressively (I need $15,000 by next march to pass the language school financial requirement), but this is the first BIG thing I've ever done in my life purely for myself, because i want it. 

Luckily for me, I work a contract job that ends at the end of this year, but it's sounding like my company would more than likely extend me until I would leave for Japan. This would be perfect so I don't have to worry about finding a new job between this one and going to Japan, money flow would be steady, and I can just let them know when I'm leaving for my contract to end =u=b

Also, mum, bro told me you check my dA now and if you're reading this then...surprise...?

2) I got my second comic publication in a comic anthology. It's been nearly three years since I last tried and it both scares me and gives me confidence. Last time I messed up badly and was extremely unprofessional and immature. I'm not going to let that happen again, but I'm already much more calm about this one than the last one. As an example (though it was far from the main issue), I had no idea how to send professional business emails before and this time it's a breeze because I've been doing that type of thing daily for the last few years. I dunno, I know I've matured and I'm not going to let what happened last time happen again. Plus the deadline for this one is a lot less aggressive than the last one when working 40 hours a week. Gives me confidence, though, that I've applied to two different anthologies and gotten picked for both, albeit with different writer each time. I'm applying for one more this year both with a writer and solo, so we'll see how that goes. I'm very excited about my solo pitch, but it is my first time being both writer and artist QnQ

If you're curious, the one I got into with my writer friend is Bedside Press's Gothic Tales of Haunted Love, which is a teen rated horror/romance comic anthology.
