A lot of things have happened in the past few days, on a personal level...have been thinking a lot of things, been facing some issues with myself and things happening around me. There's someone close to me, someone important to me that I owe an apology for neglecting for so long...

In the end, I think I need to take some time off. Not only to rethink what I'm doing and to avoid burnout, but also to give this person the attention she deserves. Because of this, with the exception of :icontf-wizard:'s commission (and that is only because of advance payment due to holiday stuff), I'll be cancelling all January commissions. I don't think I'll be taking commissions for a while, at least until I feel I'm ready for it again. At the moment, I just have a lot to think about and a lot to do to make up for my mistakes.

Not to mention the semester's coming to a close soon, and that's not going as well as I hoped either...

To those who were looking forward to those commissions, I apologize. I hope to make up for it in the future, whenever I open up again, or who knows...if there's any backlash, it'll be well deserved. But for now, I just...need some time.

So, as stated in a previous post, I'll be opening up commissions slots to be worked on during January. The rules and pricing will be the same as before, for those interested, here's a link to the commission info:

COMMISSION INFO (PRICES AND RULES)

I'll be working on the current batch this weekend, and worst case scenario next week, and will be taking a break for Christmas and New Years. Keep in mind, these slots will be worked on starting January, so take that into account when asking for them.

CURRENT (DECEMBER) SLOTS:
  1. :icontf-wizard: - Samurai TG
  2. :icongeistis: - Glaceon TF
  3. Anonymous - Oni Pinup
JANUARY SLOTS

Now that the slate is finally clean, I'll be taking commissions again! I'll be using the new structure from last time, tho I'm expanding the slots to three. That being said, having a slot is more akin to having a reservation; the commission itself will not begin until the transaction is done. It's to avoid any issues with scheduling. For now, I'm only taking single pics, but I'll be considering short sequences (3-4 steps max) depending on how my workflow goes with the singles.

So, for a single pic commission: 
  • $33 USD (includes fees and tax)
  • Single Character only (additional characters may cost extra depending on complexity)
  • Full Color with Shading 
  • Simple or No Background

Now, what will I draw?
  • TG (MtF)
    • Character-based TG - Turning into a fictional character!
    • Regular TG - Also an option, based on your description! Can also include RC.
  • Female AR/AP - A girl growing younger or older!
  • GTS/SW - A girl growing larger, or shrinking out of her clothes!
  • Mythological TF - Only if the creature in question is half-human (i.e. harpy, mermaid, naga, etc...).
  • Female to Female TF - Can involve any of the three above!
  • Fanart!
  • Pokemon TF - Something I've found myself doing often lately, so might as well add it.
And what will I NOT draw?
  • R-18/Adult Content - Sorry.
  • Animal TFs/Anthro - Still need to learn more for regular animals (considering it a possibility for the future, tho), and in the case of the latter, not my cup of tea either. A catgirl would be fine; a cat girl would not.
  • Other types of transformation (like FtM TG, WG, Inflation, etc) - For a variety of reasons.
  • Any content I deem uncomfortable.
The most important rule, however, is that  I reserve the right to refuse any commission if I deem it out of my comfort zone, or inappropriate. If I think the idea you're sending is out of my comfort zone or breaks any of these rules, I will reply to your note specifying that. So if I don't reply to a note, don't worry, it doesn't necessarily mean I rejected it. Yet.

ALL PAYMENTS WILL BE DONE THROUGH PAYPAL - USD ONLY
Sorry guys. Can't do much with points.
  • Send me a note with the subject "Commission - [your username here]".
  • Give me as much information about your commission as possible. The more info we agree on what you want, the easier it'll be for me to work and the more likely it'll be for me to finish.
  • If you're using an established fictional character, give me good quality reference pictures; if you're using an OC or random character, send me either reference pics or a detailed description.
  • Also of great help, have an idea ready for your commission. It's one thing to say "Have X transform into Y"; it's another to say "Have X find a mysterious pendant from Z show, which turns him into Y, Z's heroine, in her season 2 appearance"
  • Once I've agreed to your commission, I'll send you an invoice through Paypal. REMEMBER TO INCLUDE YOUR PAYPAL ADRESS SO I CAN SEND THE INVOICE.
  • Also, please, in case of repeat customers, don't send payment preemptively; that will not guarantee you a slot, so wait until we've both agree I'll work on your commission.

This'll only be a quick update, since I'm still kinda tired from the trip, but...I'm back! ^^;
And I already miss Japan already. ;-; Was a fun trip, got to see lots of new things, lots of fun things (Akihabara is awesome), but alas...all good things come to an end. And admittedly, I did miss my friends and family.

Ah well, back to the grinder it is!

OK, so...as stated in an earlier status post, I'll be leaving for Japan tonight. Going to be spending about a week or so there, and hoping to find all the cool stuff and enjoy the experience! I'll try to stay in contact, but for the most part, I'll be unavailable. ^^;
So yeah, commissions are temporarily closed until I come back. But, once I do come back, and finish the last one on the list, well...I'll see if I can restructure things again. We'll see.

See you guys next time!

OK, so as I pointed out in the recent status, since commissions are finally winding down with most of them finally done, I'll be opening up commissions again. Also because I have to start saving up money again. HOWEVER, this time I'll follow my original plan. That is to say, I will only open up ONE SLOT. After this journal is posted, you're free to send me your commission requests, and I will personally pick the one I'll work on. After the transaction's done, that'll be the only commission I'll work on. Once that one's finished, THEN the slot will open up again, and I'll pick another one from my notes. Think of it more of a commission period of sorts.

For the time being, I'll only be taking SINGLE PIC COMMISSIONS. It'll be:
  • $33 USD 
  • Single Character only
  • Full Color with Shading 
  • Simple or No Background

Now, what will I draw?
  • TG (MtF)
    • Character-based TG - Turning into a fictional character!
    • Regular TG - Also an option, based on your description! Can also include RC.

  • Mythological TF - Only if the creature in question is half-human (i.e. harpy, mermaid, naga, etc...).
  • Female to Female Character TF - Can involve any of the three above!
  • Fanart!
  • NEW! Pokemon TF - Something I've found myself doing often lately, so might as well add it.
And what will I NOT draw?
  • R-18/Adult Content - Sorry.
  • Animal TFs/Anthro - Still need to learn more for regular animals (considering it a possibility for the future, tho), and in the case of the latter, not my cup of tea either. A catgirl would be fine; a cat girl would not.

So, as I stated in a status post, now that all slots have been filled again, I'm closing commissions for the time being. I will finish the current batch before considering opening them again, tho as also stated, in a more dialed back manner. For the time being, here's the current plan for work/release for the commissions:
  1. 1 commisioned single illustrations:
    1. :iconashtgfem: - Mid-TF
  2. 5-step color sequence for :iconlasserine:

Well...that happened.

So...due to the unforeseen circumstances, I think I'll have to go ahead with the plan I had for future commissions a bit early...and in a slightly different way. So, without further ado, let's lay out the (altered) plan I had for commissions! Or, as it is now called:

Creator Cautious Capacity

C.C.C.


So, what does this plan entail? Well, it's simple. I'll be opening up six commissions slots. These commissions will be specifically worked on after I finish the last sequence commission that's currently in the works. That said, if the idea entices or inspires me enough, I might end up doing it earlier, but there's no guarantee. I'm hoping to finish said sequence in a week at most, so keep that in mind.

Anyways, the commissions will cost $30. The caveat? I will only be taking single character illustrations. Pinup, mid-TFs, post-TFs, just the character being chill; this sort of stuff. This is to prevent a scenario where I take more than I can chew, especially given my current class schedule. Don't worry, they'll be fully colored and shaded. So, what are the rules for these?

-For TFs, only TG (MtF), AR, AP allowed. Some other changes can be allowed (like shrinking or GTS), but overall, these are the main ones I can do.
-Simple backgrounds only. Either flat color, or pattern, or something like that. I can try something a bit more complex, but it'll have to be discussed, and may raise the price a bit.
-Only one commission per customer at a time.

And that's pretty much it! Honestly, the only difference between the original plan and this one is the number of slots. I am hoping to improve on my work by trying to do an illustration a day, especially since right now money is a bit tight in general for me. Yes, I realize the problem up there, but that's precisely why I want to keep fun money and cash separate. Anyways, let me know what you guys think, and here's hoping all works out. Wish me luck!

So! Apparently I got tagged in something (by my friend :iconh-exe:)...doesn't happen very often. ^^:

Name: Carlos

Starsign: Gemini, and Chinese zodiac sign is...Rooster! Oh...that might explain my luck on the OW Year of the Rooster event...

Average hours of sleep: Back when I was in class, I averaged 6 hours...because I'm bad at sleeping early. ^^; Currently, since I'm off-class for a couple months, I average 8 hours. Tho, now my problem is sleeping and waking up at the right time. ^^;

Lucky number: I have no idea, so I'll go with...5
Last thing I googled: "guda guda fgo", because of a re-run of a Fate Grand Order event and my suffering at being unable to get the limited character from it. :'D

When I started this account: About two years ago, as an alternative account to house my TF work while keeping my other gallery separate for portfolio purposes.

Amount of watchers: 751, a number which I just realized.

What do I post
: As the name implies, I mainly focus on TG artwork, male to female. Have also posted stories of the same from time to time, with a bit of age changes here and there. Tho, I've been looking into trying other things as well, like animal TFs or Inanimate.

Do I run any more blogs: Well, I do have my main account, :iconkaiza-c:, where I post more regular artwork or fanart. Also have a tumblr where I repost the same, same with pixiv, as well as my twitter, @KAIZA2002. Tho, those don't relate to my TF work, but you can check them out if you'd like.

Why did I choose this username: Well, the simple explanation is just a combination of my usual username (KAIZA) and TG...OK, the first part is actually adapted from a nickname I got in high school based on the pronunciation of my last name. That's really all there is to it. ^^;

And I'm supposed to tag more people...but I don't know that many! Plus I don't want to bother others... ^^;
Hmm...

In other topics, I'm slowly trying to beat back the burnout/art block, and yes, I know I've been very quiet these past few months...I owe my commissionees an apology for that...I'll try working on projects at a reasonable pace, and hopefully get things done during this break period. Hopefully will get to stream more often as well.

So, stay tuned for future updates! Hopefully...

Alright...as stated, it's been quite the long while since I last made a journal. And I probably have a lot to go through, so let's see. First of all, yes, my semester started anew around October...and my schedule is utterly atrocious. As in, I go in the morning, return home by evening bad. On the plus side, I do get three hours free in between classes...on the other, it's still three hours on campus. I've been trying to take my laptop with me occasionally, but the weight of things means it's not really feasible always. And even then...on campus wouldn't be the best place to try drawing my commissions at the time. Though starting today, and given circumstances, I might ignore that rule...

Anyways, aside from that, let's just say my personal life hasn't been the best lately either. Many depressive moments brought either from stress or from personal issues and problems, tons of illnesses and allergies (seriously, this weather does not help at all), and just a few weeks ago, a wall tile broke off the shower and fell on my head. Had to get stitches for that and it hurt for a while, too. So, yeah, not the happiest of times for me, adding to that the fact that this semester seems to be geared towards large projects (two of my classes involve air brushing and screen printing, just to give an idea)...

So, what am I making about this? Excuses? Hell no. I've been mentally killing myself over and over due to the fact I still haven't delivered on my promises and commissions yet. Even when just opening commissions again would help me get funds for various things (will get to that in a bit). But the point is, I need to restructure my entire work method at the moment to fit my current environment. Hence, the aforementioned working while on campus whenever possible (and as I wrote this I remembered I have club activities as well...great.)

Now, before this just turns into rambling and ranting, let's go over a few positives! For example, the fact I now have a new drawing tablet! An early Christmas gift from my sister, and taking advantage of Black Friday sales. So, that's something I'm going to enjoy to try out. Another is streaming. Although time has been tight, I have occasionally found some breathing space. Unfortunately, it seems my network has been starting to have issues, hence why I haven't streamed in a while. However, I'm currently looking into how to fix this issue so I can stream for you guys again! An audience to peer-pressure me into drawing might be the kick I need. What else, what else, oh, also started playing Pokemon Moon, been fun so far, but I've been either busy or distracted to actually play. ^^;

Speaking of distractions, let's talk about my current addiction. Fate Grand Order. Some of you may have heard of this little game, some of you may not;
it's a mobile game entry in the Fate series (that's Fate Stay Night Fate, btw). And, well...it's a lot of fun. Sure, the gameplay's not much to write about, it's a pretty standard turn-based RPG. However, the hook is not in the gameplay, but the characters, the lore, the story. The story's fantastic, managing to bring together plenty of characters both new and familiar faces from the franchise. And that's not even mentioning the hilarious seasonal events, holy crap, they're as hilarious as they add character development. It adds much to the Servant lore in the Nasuverse, and there's dozens upon dozens of characters. Some of them have amazing artwork done by various artists, as well as stunning animations, and really, it's the Servants that bring people in. Not only do you have almost every Servant featured through the various Fate media, but also plenty of newcomers, with some...interesting interpretations (oh hai Edison).

And here's where my next point lies, and why I call it my current addiction. You see, as a Japanese mobile game (yes, Japanese only, but easily downloaded APK and the story bits have translations posted online), of course, it features a gacha system to get new characters. If you're not familiar with what that means, it basically means you use currency to roll a roulette and get stuff from it. And of course, getting those coveted Servants means...using the premium currency, which is hard to obtain in-game once you cleared almost all of it. And the rates are horrendous. As in, the highest rarity characters (which include either some of the best or most popular ones) have only a 1% chance of being pulled. And that's not going into how some characters are only available for a limited time...

So, of course, as with any Japanese mobage, there be whales here. And I bet you can see where I'm going with this. No, I'm not a whale. I'm simply too poor to be a whale, you see. Not that I haven't spent in the game, but...yeah, nowhere near as much as a whale, and even then my luck hasn't been quite good (got a few good characters, tho!). Already have missed quite a few characters I've wanted due to lack of currency, and there have been times I've wished I had more spending money to try my chances at said characters (since for obvious reasons I'm not willing to spend my savings into a luck-based roulette). Hell, that happened some time before Halloween, and it's happening again with the current Christmas event! (Rin, I have failed you!!)

So, where am I going with this? Well, obviously, I need a way to fund my horrible, horrible compulsion, as well as having some extra money in case of emergency (since I can always use Paypal money to do favors in exchange for cash). But the thing is...I'm clearly incapable of doing so. I haven't been able to obtain a job...and my options aren't very good either way, and as mentioned before, I'm locked on commissions. And even then, I haven't been stable on the latter; just see how long it's taken me with this batch compared to earlier in the year. Yes, I am disappointed so much in myself, that at this point I'm turning to what's basically a gambling compulsion for motivation. And it's not working.

Sigh...I don't think I have what it takes; nor do I think I'm ready for the responsibility yet. I don't know. I mean, when my head starts with the idea of adding a donation button or asking for donations for the sole purpose of having funds for a video game, instead of putting priorities where they should be, I know I have a problem. So what should I do about it? I'm not sure, really. I did consider swearing off commissions entirely, with the current batch being my last one before closing them indefinitely. Not sure if that'll still happen, I'll probably cave in due to some reason. And in the end, I admit that some commissions are just fun to do. I had a lot of fun while streaming and drawing, but I feel I've lost that spark. And I don't know how to get it back. Maybe it's the stress, maybe it's my self-loathing, or maybe it's immaturity; I don't know.

But...I'll try my best to deliver what I set to do, to finish what I started, and work through this somehow. I said once that I wanted to dedicate myself to drawing, to make a living out of it (in the game industry, sure, but details). So I have to improve, I have to grow up.

In a less depressing note, there's a chance I might take up writing again, since I have tons of neglected characters, as well as a few ideas here and there from various people that I've liked and have wanted to try. No promises on that, tho.

And with that, I guess that's all for today. Thanks to my friend :icondancingspartan: for helping me out through various rough patches and being awesome, as well as :iconwavercd:, who also wrote an awesome gift story for me, check it out here:  A New Perspective (Ramlethal TG TF)-Ramlethal Valentine TG Transformation (Guilty Gear Xrd)-
Alone again; Kay was used to it by now. With few friends, being rather shy and with poor self-esteem, he’d often find himself spending days to himself. This particular weekend he was a bit spry and wanted to hang with the few friends he did have. Unfortunately they all had plans. Some were at a party and while they invited him he declined their offer. So there he was, alone yet again.
He didn’t dwell on it though; heck he much preferred time to himself away from the anxieties of social gatherings. There is plenty of entertainment right here at home, he thought. He figured no one at the party would find much interest in him anyways.
Kay thought of himself as pretty unremarkable. Just an average looking brown haired, brown eyed, pudgy loner nice guy. He was also quite pale and wore thick rimmed glasses—not so much a treat for the eyes. He stopped dwelling on it long ago. Kay was simply not the sociable typ


For now, I have classes, but I'll see what I can do during that break.
Take care everyone.

P.S.: I originally planned to add images to this journal, make it less of a text wall, maybe in a funny context...but not sure on hindsight. Let me know if I should do the doodles for it, and I'll add them during the break.

Yes, after some deliberating, consulting with a dear friend, and asking for the commissioner's opinion on whether to do this or not...I've decided to open up limited-time flash commissions. These will basically be more-polished quickies, black and white/grayscale single pics, usually with only a character or two in a situation, with limited or no background. And, why would anyone get one of these instead of just regularly commissioning me?

Well, for one, regular commissions are still closed, I have the ones pending to do first, it's just that time has been limited (still hoping for that short break period after this semester). Second, due to the fact I'm in urgent need of money (paying off debts has left me in the red...again...), and since these quick commissions are of the simplest tier, I'm offering for the simple price of...$5. That's it.

To ensure I don't get suddenly overwhelmed in the late part of the semester (just in case, I know I'm not that popular) since class takes up half the day, I will only take on one at a time. Only one slot. However, anyone who wants one is free to send me a note requesting a flash commission. HOWEVER! This will not necessarily be first come, first serve. Since I'm in a tight schedule, and I'd rather avoid the same scenario I'm having with the regular commishes, I'll pick whichever request sounds more possible to do at the moment. Payment will be done once I reply to you; no cheating by paying me in advance. I'll try to do these as fast as I can (hence the name) while maintaining quality, but please, bear with me if something goes horribly, horribly wrong in the process. ^^;

I'm not giving the best impression right now, am I?

A-Anyways, that's all for tonight. I'll be checking this every day after I come home, and if I have time on weekends (not this one, have to go to a con with my illust. club), who knows, I might stream these. Might.

NOTE: Same rules as regular commissions apply. Ideas deemed unacceptable will be rejected.

Hey guys! Um...yeah, as you can tell, I've gone completely quiet this last few months. To be entirely honest, this semester hasn't really been the best for me; not helped by the particularly tight schedule I have that leaves little time for anything else. Mostly because of homework and projects. Then there's the illustration club and the projects related to that...

Well, what I'm trying to get with this is, I don't want to make any excuses. I'm sorry. I'm sorry for basically disappearing without notice, sorry for the lack of uploads recently, and most specially sorry to all those who commissioned me and are still waiting for those. I cannot thank you enough for your patience, and as much as I'm trying to work on things as I can with this schedule, I still believe this long period of quiet is inexcusable.

For now, I'll try to see how much I can manage between projects. I'm getting a two week break before the next semester, most likely around the end of September to early October. Hopefully, during that short period of time, I'll be able to return to a more normal schedule; could even try streaming! But, until then...thank you for your patience, and I'll try to think of some form of compensation soon.

Take care, guys.

So, yeah, you might have noticed I've gone quiet lately. It's mostly been a combination of this semester being particularly stressful and tight on schedule, aaaand, well...I might have entered another art block. ^^;

Still, I'm trying to chip at it bit by bit if possible, so for now, here's some quickies I've made in a small test stream:

Well, as stated yesterday, people have asked me to upload the quickies made during the streams. Since they were more or less of unfinished quality, I was unsure about it, but hey, some of these still look good despite their quickie nature. ^^

So, I decided to compromise and thus I'm posting them in a journal!

Yes, that's right! Now that I've been on a good streak recently, and my vacation is soon drawing to a close, I might as well use what's left of it. Plus, I'm kind of in need of money, due to getting a new laptop. ^^;

So, it's time to re-open commissions!

Commission - Class Change Pg.1 by KAIZA-TG Commission - Class Change Pg.2 by KAIZA-TG Commission - Class Change Pg.3 by KAIZA-TG Commission - Class Change Pg.4 by KAIZA-TG Commission - Class Change Pg.5 by KAIZA-TG Commission - Class Change Pg.6 by KAIZA-TG

What I will do:

  • TG (MtF)
    • Character-based TG - Turning into a fictional character! My favorite kind of transformation, and my personal specialty. :D
    • Regular TG - Also an option, based on your description! Can also include RC.
  • AR/AP - A girl growing younger or older!
  • GTS/SW - A girl growing larger, or shrinking out of her clothes!
  • Mythological TF - Only if the creature in question is half-human (i.e. harpy, mermaid, naga, etc...).
  • Female to Female Character TF - Can involve any of the three above!
  • Fanart!

Will NOT do:

  • Adult Content - Sorry.
  • Animal TFs/Anthro - Not my forte, and in the case of the latter, not my cup of tea either. A catgirl would be fine; a cat girl would not.
  • Other types of transformation (like FtM TG, WG, Inflation, etc) - For a variety of reasons.
  • Any content I deem uncomfortable.

Rules:

  • As the previous point states; I reserve the right to refuse any commission if I deem it out of my comfort zone, or inappropriate.
  • Work on commissions will most likely be streamed. Just letting you know; if you so wish, you can check those for a more direct progress report. :)
  • All commissions WILL also be posted on my gallery, with reference to the commissioner. If you want to remain anonymous, let me know in advance.
  • Non-transformation content and/or fanart may be posted on my main account (:iconkaiza-c:) instead.
  • Payment will be done through PayPal (USD only, sorry), and it will done in two parts:
    • First payment will be done after we agree on the commission and you've been given a slot
    • Second payment will be done once the commission is finished, before it's posted.
  • For safety reasons, I'll only have three slots at a time. Depending on the commissions in question, and how fast they're completed, I may open a few more.

How to commission

  • Send me a note with the subject "Commission - [your username here]".
  • Give me as much information about your commission as possible. The more info we agree on what you want, the easier it'll be for me to work and the more likely it'll be for me to finish.
  • If you're using an established fictional character, give me good quality reference pictures; if you're using an OC or random character, send me either reference pics or a detailed description.
  • Also of great help, have an idea ready for your commission. It's one thing to say "Have X transform into Y"; it's another to say "Have X find a mysterious pendant from Z show, which turns him into Y, Z's heroine, in her season 2 appearance"
  • Payment information will be sent to you once we've agreed on your commission, and you've been given a slot.
  • Also, please, in case of repeat customers, don't send payment preemptively; that will not guarantee you a slot, so wait until we've both agree I'll work on your commission.

Hey guys, KAIZA here.

So, as I suggested in the previous journal, and as seen with the last couple works I posted, lately I've been trying to beat my current artist block as I try working on current projects. So, whenever I end up at a crossroads, I open a new canvas, look for a random idea, and start working on a quickie.

Now, here's the deal. I'm not opening requests again, for a variety of reasons; however, I will open this journal as a "suggestion box" of sorts. What does that entail? Well, it basically means any of you can suggest a quick idea for a drawing/story, and if I find the idea interesting enough, I'll work on it as a (hopefully) daily quickie!

Of course, I have to set some rules first:
  • Ideas should involve a character somehow; either TFs into a character, or a character being TFd.
  • For characters, I'd prefer it if they were anime/manga or videogame characters.
  • If it's a TF into a character, there are better chances if the character's underused or obscure.
  • No Anthro/Animal characters.
  • Only allowed side-effects are TG (MtF), AR/AP (female or TG subjects only), and size changes (female subjects only).
  • Try to keep the ideas clean. If I find it uncomfortable, it's a no-no.
  • Try to keep the ideas simple and specific, since these will be quickies.
Keep in mind, posting an idea here does not guarantee that it will be made. No one has any priority over anyone, and I'll just pick an idea based on how much it interests me during a blocked moment (since those will be more effective.) I may use your idea, or not at all. The whole point of the quickies is that they're random. I'm also considering putting a limit to suggestions, maybe a maximum of three per user.

Well, with that out of the way, go wild.

Hey guys, KAIZA here. It's been...quite a while. Again. orz

I've found myself in kind of a rut when it comes to all my current projects. Aside from a couple off-site projects, there's still the last commission, the two sequences for :iconh-exe:, as well as an upcoming multi-AP TF story I began writing after a conversation with a friend.

So, having too many things I want to focus on at the same time kinda led to the counterproductive result of failing to properly focus on any one of them. It doesn't help that I was stuck in a sort of block last week. As such, I've been slowly trying to make progress, focusing on whichever project I currently have a spark for at the time. Luckily, the sequences and the story are the easiest to focus on individually, so I hope to make better progress on those this week.

I don't wish to let my gallery languish, though, so I'll try to have at least some content available while I work on the sequences. Most likely stories, since focusing on the sequences means all drawing time will be taken by it, while stories I can write during the spare time. Which is why I released an old story I kept stashed away, but hey, maybe that AP TF story might be next. And while requests are still locked, I might ask for some ideas and suggestions in the future; mostly for stories, but who knows. I need to improve on my writing just as I do with my artwork.

In other news, I'm still on a job hunt, but haven't had much results; most of the jobs require previous experience or knowledge I sorely lack, so my options are short. Sigh, such is life.

Well, hopefully next status update will bear better news.
Until then, see ya.

Hey everyone, KAIZA here...yeah, I know, I've been silent for quite a while.

Honestly, it's been...a bit difficult to explain, but I'll try to sum it up as best I can. The basic gist of it is, due to the possibility of a harsh weather pattern called "El Niño" coming in next year, by government decree all educational activities must be formally over before February or so. As a result of this, a lot of schools have had their schedules severely tightened. No holiday breaks or anything (and in the case of some schools, that also included classes on Saturday; though this was apparently dropped...I think).

My college was not exempt to this, and so we've pretty much had class non-stop. To make matters better, the tightened schedule also meant we had less time to work on term projects, which also came in earlier, so in my case I had about four of those (out of five classes) at a time. The only saving grace to the holidays was that, since a lot of students don't live in the city, all the teachers pretty much told us not to go on the 24th (and the same will happen on the 31st), and since Christmas (and New Year's) took place on a Friday...that allowed for a short break.

Half at least which was spent more focusing on family stuff, but a break nonetheless.

Add a few other college responsibilities to take care of (including joining an illustration club to improve on my artwork) and...yeah, I've pretty much haven't had much time to dedicate to the sites. ^^; I've had a bit to check things here and there for a bit, and even that got a bit difficult at times.

Still, I've been chiseling away at commissions as I could...honestly, the reason I've taken a long time with them, previous delays aside, is because I never seem satisfied with how they turn out. However, the amount of time is inexcusable. As such, after some touch-ups and one final scrutiny, I will be releasing :iconflashkill455:'s commission. Next one in the queue will then be :iconh-exe:'s commission.

That said, after some consideration, self-analysis, and considering recent events and other issues, after these, I will be closing commissions until further notice. As much as I need the money, I can't have a repeat of what happened here. I might also take a small hiatus to try to work on some old WIPs I've left behind, as well as try other projects, but for this one, we'll see.

So, once again, I apologize to everyone, especially my commissionees, for being silent, and once more, I offer bonuses to them to make up for the lost time.

Well, until next time (and probably year).
Happy Holidays!
