Hey everyone, I'm excited to share this new project that I'm thrilled to work and collaborate on. First I would like to introduce to you, Varosine. He is a talented singer, songwriter, and sound artist living in San Francisco. He's always wanted to make a fanmade Pokémon Region and I'm glad he asked me to help out.

Varosine has been in contact with me last year and asked if I was on board with this project of his. Of course I said yes and I'm glad I made the right decision. The project we are working on is a fanmade Pokémon region with a bunch of Fakemon we both designed, as well as hot new characters. There isn't much we can share but for now, please enjoy this teaser.

The Volina Region


Welcome to the Volina Region! Volina is inspired by the South American country Bolivia, where my family originates from. Volina is a land filled with various ecosystems and climates, containing plains, grasslands, deep jungles, ancient mountains, and wide, raging rivers. Only the most adventurous trainers can survive outside the settled areas. The Pokémon in the Volina Region are extremely wild and diverse, having only recently been exposed to human contact. What awaits in this ancient region? What secrets does it hold? What kind of Pokémon call Volina their home?

Let the journey begin...


Can't wait to share more with you. Go give Varosine a watch and stay up to date with the Volina Region!

Hope you all have a great day!

First of all, hope you all had a Happy Holidays and I wish you a prosperous New Year! I'll cherish all the wonderful memories I've had in 2016. It's been a wild ride. Let's hope 2017 will be good to us all. Here's to 2017 and moving forward.

I've Been Busy


Hey everyone, this is just an update about what I've currently been up to and why I haven't been submitting much Fakemon and personal art lately. Other than commissions, I'm currently involved in several game projects and making artwork for them. It's exciting. I've been designing characters and creatures for various games. It's a lot of work but it's the start of a dream that I've always  wanted to do. And I'm so thankful to be involved with this projects.

So, what projects am I involved in?

Breeze In The Clouds


Almost 2 years ago,  I was asked to design some monsters for a game called Breeze In The Clouds. It's an action-adventure game where the hero is a corgi! It sounded so cool and I'm happy to have designed some enemies for the game. The game is still in developement and so far it looks like it's coming along great. Check out the website for more details!


Other Projects


I've also been making some monster characters for another card game project in the past year or so. It's going slow at the moment as the team of the project is currently making changes with their brand. Then around mid 2016, I've been contacted to work as a character designer for a children's learning game. It's been fun working with the game and designing the characters, as well as creating graphics for the game. The game is still in developement and I don't think I can say much but it is turning out very well. Hopefully I can share more details about it in the future!

And recently, I've been offered a proposition to design and create artwork of monsters for another project, similar to Pokémon. I don't know if I can share much details, yet, but I'll keep you guys updated when I can!

These are all the projects I am currently working on, as well as some personal side projects. So yeah, I have been very busy! I haven't had much time to do my own personal artworks but I'll try to get some done soon. I still have quite a few commissions left to finished.

Many projects, many thanks


Though I am involved with many projects, I am thankful to be involved in working with them!  They may not be 'big' game projects by 'big' companies, but it's a start in the direction of my art dream I am leaning towards to. I'm just grateful for the oppurtunities I get to work on these projects. If you ever get an oppurtunity, I say take it. Every oppurtunity is an experience.


What to expect in 2017


Well, I definitely need to submit the rest of my Fakemon so I can go on and work on another side project of mine. I do want to work on more personal artwork, but I feel like I need to practice and study more and experiment with different techniques and mediums.

Oh, and I do plan to announce a special project sometime in the summer. It's a project that I've been secretly working on for two (or more) years now.

Other than that, I really don't know what else, haha. Just stay tuned for future updates!
That's all for now, thanks for reading and happy New Year! ☺

5 DAYS OF FAKEMON

Thu Oct 27, 2016, 12:29 AM by zerudez:iconzerudez:
Welcome
Welcome to 5 Days of Fakemon: Halloween Edition, where I submit a Fakemon a day for five days! In this edition, the theme is obviously relating to Halloween 🎃 so this means the Fakemon updates are gonna be spooky and frightening.

Day 1: Ghoulotine and its evolution, Guilloceive!
Day 2: Purswayer and its pre-evolution, Ferobite!
Day 3: Updated Vexigon, Noxareo, and Darcastro!
Day 4: Ghost warriors Malakel'e and Kahukel'e!
Day 5: Zedakazm unleashed!



With its Strong Jaw ability, it will surely leave a mark on your foe with its powerful, painful bite.

Day 1


Ghoulotine & Guilloceive
First off we have Ghoulotine, the Chomping Pokémon. It is a pure Ghost-type. Ghoulotine's strong biting power can tear through flesh with its razor sharp teeth. Urban legends talk of a begrudging man who cursed a mirror to seek vengeance on two-faced people. More info »

Next is Guilloceive, the Guillotine Pokémon. It has gained the Steel-type upon evolution. According to myth, it was a cursed mirror which its master ordered to seek vengeance on people hiding behind a fake personality. Guilloceive has the ability to see one's true self. Looking into it is said to reflect the true inner self of an individual, and if that individual is hiding behind a lie, Guilloceive will curse them with bad luck. More info »



Day 2


Ferobite & Purswayer
Here's Ferobite, the pre-evolution to my newly updated Purswayer. At a very young age, Ferobite begin to gnaw on almost anything they see. They chase down their prey and bite onto them tightly, not wanting to let go. They like to hunt alongside their parents as they learn how to hunt. More info »

Purswayer are very skilled hunters. They teach their young at a very young age how to hunt down their prey. A pack hunting together won't stop until their prey tires out from running. A glare from a Purswayer is said to mess with one's judgment, and cause prey to submit to it. More info »




During full moons, a huge pack of Purswayer and their young go scavenging around for food, even in towns and cities. They then gather the food to their home and have a huge feast.




Darcastro and its pre-evolutions have the Hidden Ability Deviate, which turns its Normal-type moves into Dark-type moves.

Day 3


Darcastro, Noxareo, & Vexigon
Darcastro soar across the land, compelling local Pokemon to rampage around. Sightings of them are immediately followed with city-wide warnings. In Havai, they are seen as superiors to all Dragon-type Pokémon. It is very difficult to gain trust and loyalty from Darcastro. They do not like taking orders from anyone and rather do things their own way. Once trust is gained, they can be the most loyal partner to a Trainer. More info »

 


Vexigon can be quite a handful for Trainers. They like causing ruckus and disobeying commands. These stubborn Pokémon can go hours or even days of causing trouble. More info »

Noxareo enjoy causing ruckus for their own amusement. These troublesome Pokémon are known for causing damage with their reckless behavior. Studies show that its recklessness pumps itself up with energy and gets other Noxareo pumped up. However, they get too carried away and end up causing tremendous damage. More info »

Day 4


Malakel'e & Kahukel'e
According to old Havaian legend, these Pokémon represented the spirits of fallen warriors. On rare occasions, they are seen marching along certain paths, walking along until reaching a sacred site. If a person makes eye contact with them, they will get cursed with bad luck so it is best to avoid coming into contact with them when possible. Havaians say a leaf of a rare plant keeps these Pokémon away.

Malakel'e gather under the moonlight to practice their chanting. It is said their chants can cause headaches, nausea, and give bad dreams to those who hear it. More info »

Kahukel'e acts as the chief of their group. There are usually up to three chief Kahukel'e per marching group. Kahukel'e are skilled fighters. They are able to detach their arms and use them as a weapon. More info »



Kahukel'e learns a move called Chief's Chant which greatly boosts its Attack and Special Attack.




Zedakazm seen in its Unleashed Form. Its ability is Soul Devour which boosts its Special Attack and Special Defense upon knocking out any Pokémon.

Day 5


Zedakazm Unleashed
Zedakazm is a Legendary Pokémon in which myth states, "death follows wherever this beast passes". Centuries ago it wrecked havoc in both the Havai and Orohn regions until Arceus punished it for its wrongdoing and prisoned it in the After World. Entering deep into its realm lies Zedakazm in its Imprisoned Form. More info »

Known in Havai as the Ruler of the Underworld, it brings evil souls to this bottomless realm where they will be tormented for eternity. The only known way to reach the After World is by entering through a portal. Zedakazm possesses a Soul Orb which allows it to change into its Unleashed Form once its HP goes below half. The Soul Orb also boosts the power of its Ghost-type moves.


Zedakazm seen in its Imprisoned Form.


Ending
This concludes my 5 Days of Fakemon: Halloween edition! Hope you enjoyed this. Let me know if you want more of something like this. I'll have more Fakemon updates in the future!

Pokemon Sun and Moon Starters!

Tue May 10, 2016, 9:12 AM by zerudez:iconzerudez:
Alola Region Starters Revealed!

The long awaited starters of Pokémon Sun and Moon have finally been revealed! Their names have been revealed as Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio! Their Japanese names have been trademarked a while ago along with the legendary names and is now confirmed to be true!



Read below for more info on them!

Also Pokémon artist Ken Sugimori isn't in charge of doing the Pokémon arts this time!
The starter artworks were done by the fabulous Megumi Mizutani (who also did the ORAS Gym Leader artworks) and the amazing Yusuke Ohmura who did the Sun and Moon legendary art (he also did the Gym Leader artworks for BW/B2W2!)




Rowlet


CATEGORY                 Grass Quill Pokémon
HEIGHT                       1'00"
WEIGHT                       3.3 lbs.
TYPE                            Grass/Flying
ABILITY                       Overgrow


Rowlet can attack without making a sound! It flies silently through the skies, drawing near to its opponent without being noticed, and then lashing out with powerful kicks. It can also attack from a distance using the razor-sharp leaves that form part of its feathers.

Its visual abilities are impressive. The darkness of night is no obstacle to Rowlet! It can twist its neck nearly 180° from front to back so it can see directly behind itself. It has a habit of turning its head in battle to face its Trainer and receive instructions.

The move Leafage attacks an opponent by striking it with leaves. Rowlet knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!

Litten

CATEGORY                 Fire Cat Pokémon
HEIGHT                       1'04"
WEIGHT                       9.5 lbs.
TYPE                            Fire
ABILITY                       Blaze


Logical but also passionate, Litten always remains coolheaded and doesn't show its emotions on the surface.

Litten can attack with flaming hairballs! Its fur is rich in oils and immensely flammable. Litten grooms itself by licking its fur, and then uses the collected fur as fuel for fireball attacks!

When the time comes for Litten to shed its old fur, it all burns up in a glorious blaze.

The move Ember attacks an opponent by firing a small flame at it. Litten knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!



Popplio


CATEGORY                 Sea Lion Pokémon
HEIGHT                       1'04"
WEIGHT                      16.5 lbs.
TYPE                            Water
ABILITY                       Torrent


Popplio's swimming speed is known to exceed 25 mph. It's better at moving in the water than on land. Still, when it's on land, it takes advantage of the elasticity of its balloons to perform acrobatic stunts and jumps.

Popplio can snort out balloons made of water! Watch it spin water balloons into a playful battle strategy!

Both frivolous and hard-working, Popplio can easily get carried away—unleashing enough power in battle to make quite a spectacle! But Popplio’s determined spirit means it can usually be found practicing hard on its balloon skills.

The Water Gun move attacks an opponent by firing a jet of water. Popplio knows this move from the moment it becomes your partner!

Now with the reveal of the starters, who will you choose? And what are your speculations to their evolutions? Also, what are your thoughts on Sun and Moon so far? What do you think of the region, characters, and gameplay?

So much hype! I'm excited for more info!


Pokémon Sun and Moon


Launching November 18, 2016!
November 23, 2016 in Europe.

Fake Scans: Making of The Leak

Wed Mar 16, 2016, 4:29 PM by zerudez:iconzerudez:























New Generation, New Fake Leaks

With every new generation of Pokémon comes fresh sets of fake leaks. It's just pretty much tradition now. As you may probably know, many of you have seen the fake Sun & Moon leaks revealing trainers and the starters. If you haven't, check them here. But obviously it's fake as the Japanese text was poor, as the 4chan weebs like to point out. And my trainer art was easily recognizable if you've been watching me here for so long. Like really, look how obvious the style screams fake. I got rusty af with those. But anyways, we had a lot of fun making the fake leaks because so many were just so hungry for new Sun and Moon content. We're sorry to all those easily butthurt people we rused, if you actually wanted real official info go check fan news sites besides 4chan.

My friends and I have seen previous leaks and thought how poor and sloppy some of them were (bunch of cropped, tilted, and blurred pics, who are you foolin'?). We really wanted to top it off and put a lot of effort into it. But not much could be done in such a limited time, given we only had 3 days to work on them. In that time period we seemed to pull off, if not, one of the most impressive scans in our opinions. Some liked it, many haven't. But we don't mind. We made this just for fun and just to go with the tradition of making fake scans.

So here's how a team of us (zerudez harikenn and a few others that request to be anonymous) came together to make the fake leaks.

Beginning The Leak

Our team were discussing about what starters we wanted to see for Sun and Moon. I decided to draw my predictions.If you follow me on Twitter I tweeted out my predictions. And if you caught that, you would've known the fake leak starters were by me. So about 4 days ago I began to draw the starters and showed my team. Then we hatched the idea of making a fake CoroCoro scan for fun.

These starters weren't originally how they ended up looking. The starters were such a struggle to design. With the suggestions from our team, we were able to make the starters look like starters.


Designing The Grass Starter


Designing the grass starter was generally easy. The very first design (bottom left) was just plain shit and in need of a revamp. It first started as a goat but went in the direction of a ram. So we then ended up with the design at the top right but we felt it didn't have that starter feel.  The starters from the games lately have interesting body shapes and exaggerated proportions, like Fennekin and Snivy for example with their big heads. So that's what I did with this ram. I gave it a bigger head, smaller body, and bigger horns. We were going for a viking route and the final evo would turn out way different, being Grass/Rock or Grass/Ground.

Designing The Fire Starter

The fire starter was a bit more of a struggle compared to the ram. The first design (bottom right) wasn't that bad but still didn't quite have that Pokémon feel. So again we played around with proportions and many different designs as you can see below. We played around with patterns and ended up with the final design which I think is a better improvement. For this bear, it would end up Fire/Dark and look more tribal.



Designing The Water Starter
This water starter was the hardest to design. We literally had a full page of sketches as you can see below. There were so many possible designs to choose from. But they still look like basic reptilian fakemon. Team had their input and it was just so stressful to get a final design. We ended up going back to the first design. This was gonna end up as a Water/Flying basilisk.




If you're interested in an in-depth guide on designing starters, let me know in the comments.


Designing The Trainers



Did I even try? I literally had like a day to draw these before we posted our leaks so it was rushed and didn't turn out that well. I acknowledge the fat that these were bad. If we had more time, then I would have hella gone full-out Sugimori on these. They turned out decent imo. Many have liked the girl's design. I wanted to give like, a different theme for these trainers. Looking back on these, I wish I could've done better. My style is so recognizable here by others.

I wanted to give them brighter hair colors because there's been to many dark-colored hair on previous trainers. I'll do better next time. I'm still kinda proud how these ended up but I don't need them and plan to auction them off if anyone is interested. Or note me with an offer.

Making The Box Arts



Since you know due to time limits, I couldn't have come up with designs for the legendaries. So I just quickly did some rough shapes and sculpt out a decent, believable silhouette. So then I just slapped those and the logos on a 3DS case and shit on graphics.

 

Making The Pages

harikenn was in charge of making the starter page. He did such a spectacular job with it. Our other member was in charge of doing some Japanese flavor text. I felt like we needed more pages instead of just one. So I made 2 more pages to feature the trainers and one as a cover page to feature the silhouettes. I know the Japanese was hella poor, but most of it I copied from the official XY and BW/2 websites so I thought they would've passed. But obviously not.



Also forgot the furigana. The fucking furigana. We would've gone away with it if it weren't for you meddling weebs. No but I should've let my teammates proofread it first.

It was only until after we posted the leaks, we realized we forgot the furigana. It looked pretty believable from afar. Then to make it more believable we had another teammate in charge of making the models. He was almost finished with some but then there were technical difficulties. So as a backup plan, I went and made mockup models in Photoshop. Trust me they were so horrible, but since it will be scaled and tilted a bit, it looked pretty decent.


Just fucking look at this shitty mockup.

I would show the other screens but they are just as bad as our Japanese texts.



But of course, to make it seem real we did ugly sketches of them and posted to 4chan days before we planned to post the fake leaks. Also, when posting alleged leaks online you gotta pretend you're from Nintendo or some other job position in the industry to make these legit right? :^) Tbh, who would even fall for that?


God damn, look how ugly our sketches were. But it worked to fool some.

Now when we had our pages ready, harikenn went and bought magazine paper to print these on. Yes, we were that dedicated and filled with determination to make these leaks look somewhat real. The printed result looked so good and the quality was impressive. But some of the colors changed on the magazine paper. They weren't supposed to look that saturated (the starters and models).

Read harikenn's in-depth part of his role in making the leaks here.



Our team was pretty impressed with the turnout of the prints. So then we decided to post them on 4chan hell. We really didn't have a goal, as I repeat this was for the fun of it. But seeing our leaks spread pretty much all over the internet was kinda cool. It was kinda fun to see some believe it and even more fun to see the rage and butthurtedness. As much as I want Sun and Moon updates, I do hope we get the reveal of the real starters soon.

Conclusion

Our team really did have a fun and yet stressful time working on these leaks. What did you think of the leaks? We understand if we caused some rage and shit, but it's all good. At least we put a lot of effort into these. It was pretty cool it got the attention of Serebii and Kotaku and like Twitter and shit. I'm glad most of you enjoyed our designs. As fun and stressful as it was to make leaks, I'm done with it. No more. Cheers to those who want to do fake leaks in the future, be sure to impress and fool many. Thanks and see ya.

Commissions


I have just about 8 commissions left to finish. I'm finally near finish. I'M ALMOST FREE. I'm sorry again to those commissioners who are still waiting on me. I've said sorry many times that I'm even sorry for being so apologetic. Thanks for having patience with me. Once I'm finished with those commissions, I can get back to making new art and content.


That's all for now. Thanks for reading! <3

Also thinking of selling some adoptables and Fakemon to help fund more.


     Hey everyone. Right now I got just a handful of sketch commissions left to do but I'm thinking of opening emergency commissions. I don't know. Because like, I still have this other batch of commissions way back from May to finish and I don't want my commissioners to wait even longer :/
     So another solution was to probably start a fundraiser. The reason as to starting a fundraiser is in hopes of helping out my family, especially my mom. My mom has been to the hospital many times, mainly due to her very high blood pressure and the expenses are way too high for us to afford. If you could help by spreading this, I would greatly appreciate it. <333 ;__;
Every bit counts!

All Settled In (Kinda)

Sat Jul 4, 2015, 1:03 PM by zerudez:iconzerudez:

Siblings Suck


Hi!! Well I'm finally all moved in and such, got internet back, but still hella stuff to unpack. I'm living in the cottage behind my brother's house and I like it but of course there are pros and cons. Right now my brother is blasting his shitty rap music but I'm not even close enough with him to talk to him. Are you close with your siblings or don't get along well?

Anyways, installed my new desk and it's much bigger than my previous and finally has room for my Intuos Pro which I have yet to install and get used to. But yeeeaah, I feel like I can progress more on art here. I just want a peaceful, quiet environment for doing my art. My brother is usually out of the house most times so at least then I can peacefully work on art. I got hella commissions to finish right now ; ;

Seeyaa~



PS i love Leon

Who's getting Fire Emblem Fates?????

MOVING

Sat Jun 27, 2015, 11:23 PM by zerudez:iconzerudez:

I'm Moving!


Downsizing

One of the reasons I've been pretty much absent is because I am moving to a new house, a much smaller house. Going from a 3 bedroom to a 1 bedroom and downsizing hella. Getting rid of a lot of useless and unwanted junk and trying to pack everything in a short allotted time is stressful. And then there would be a lot of unpacking so imma be quite busy with that. I'll try to finish up commissions and some new art I've been waiting to draw.

No Internet

At the new house I won't have internet until probably Friday, which is not too long from now. But I've scheduled more Fakemon to be submitted in the next couple days so stay tuned for that. Also wanna revamp some of the unreleased fakes.

Uh, yeah. I think that's all. Kbye!!!

Redbubble Launch


I'm happy to announce that I have launched a Redbubble shop where you can buy prints of my artworks. You can also order t-shirts, hoodies, stickers, phone cases, pillows and more! If you are considering ordering a print, it would mean so much to me. I appreciate the support ^o^

Life Update


I am currently still working on sketch commissions but progress is going slow as I am busy packing. Why am I packing? It's because I'll be moving soon and have to move out by the end of this month! And I still have a hella ton left to pack. So it'll be a busy month for me and then gotta setup everything at the new house. So to my commissioners, I hope you don't mind waiting a bit more.



Also after the move I won't have internet at the new house until I find a provider. I will hopefully work on art in the meantime though. Also gonna be working with some exciting projects that I've been hired to work with! If things go well, hopefully you'll hear more about it in the future.


Thank you for reading! And thank you all again for the support!

Moving On


No More Fakemon?

I still have the rest of my Fakemon to upload and then after that... I think it's time for a break and to move on. I'm still gonna be working on the MMO and slowly adding my region, but I don't know how long until it's all ready.

I've had fun, really, creating Fakemon for years. They're all precious to me and it'd be sad to move on from it, but I really want to move on to do more illustrations and to put together a portfolio.

So... thank you for supporting me and my Fakemon, especially those of you that's been watching from the start and sticking all the way through.



What's Next?

I want to do more illustrations and some character designs. I'm currently been trying out different styles and painting practices, trying to figure out which direction I would want to go in. I want to be able to make illustrations that I'll be proud of. I've found many great artists here that give me inspiration, the only problem is that I lack motivation LOL but I'll get to it, even if I have to force myself.

I've always planned to do an art book and I think it would be a great idea. The thought of having my own art book actually motivates me more to do it. Also some time in the future I want to have a Patreon, when I feel like I'm ready for it. Also it's been a goal of mine since I was like around 14 to have some kind of comic thing.

So many goals I want to achieve. Just think, would your younger self be proud of what you've become today and how far you've reached? Tell yourself to keep going and you'll eventually reach your goal.Just find that inspiration, motivation, and creativity. To be creative you must have courage. Don't ask for opinions, just do it.

Thanks again and thanks for reading. Sorry if that last paragraph sounded a bit cheesy lol ♡

LIFE UPDATE + HIATUS

Sun Feb 1, 2015, 12:32 PM by zerudez:iconzerudez:
    Thanks for all your supportive comments about my life situation when this journal was last updated, but unfortunately my dad didn't make it... On the 12th he suddenly got very tired and had trouble breathing so we called the ambulance. And it got worse from there. He laid in his hospital bed, trying to breathe, trying to talk, but he couldn't much. We tried talking to him, he could hear, but he just couldn't say much. He got very weak. We got so many visitors. My cousins and aunties took the next flight to come see him ASAP. On the 13th, we bought him Valentine's gifts and such, told him how much we loved him. He was already in a more worse condition. He was just sleeping the entire time, trying to breathe with the oxygen tank. I cried so much. We all been at the hospital the entire day. Then my cousins and aunties left with me to go home while my sister and mom stayed. It was now the 14th, and at like near 5 am we got a call and rushed to the hospital. So my cousins and aunties and I left and went to the hospital... I already had like a feeling that he'd be gone... Then we enter the room and, like.. yeah, he just.. has already passed.. At around 4:55 am is when my mom said he took his last breath. It was just so.. shocking you know. Like, that was one of my worst fears.

    More people rushed over to the hospital as soon as they heard of the news. I still can't believe he's really gone... Our little community did a fundraising for our family. My dad knew literally like everyone. I remember whenever I'd go out to stores with my dad he would greet so many people that I didn't even know he knew them. As my sister would say, "His nickname is Buddy because he was like friends with everyone." Our Mayor heard of the news and sadly he couldn't make it to the fundraiser but he did send us his deepest condolences. About $2k was raised for the fundraiser. And I wanna thank all the supporters, it really warmed our hearts. 

     It hurt me sooo much to see him suffer and in pain... Now he's no longer suffering and it's kinda relieving. No one deserves to go through this. I'm just happy he's in a better place and thankful for having such a wonderful dad in my life. He was always so humble and gentle and forgiving. I used to cause so much trouble for him and I regret them. You never know what you have until it's gone. I know my dad is proud of me and loves me. He would do his best to make me happy, even in struggling times. I'll continue to make him proud. ♥

    Okay, I don't wanna make this journal even more sad. I have some pretty happy news. My cousins offered to take us to visit them in Vegas, like a getaway from it all. My family and I could really use it. Also my uncle wants me to go to California as well, and my cousins want me to try intern at Disney Animation Studios or some other studios and like do art stuff. I don't know what the future holds for me. Before my father fell ill, I had planned to go on a trip to Cali for me and my sister's birthday. Also my parents' plan was after they both retired, they would move to the Philippines and I'd either go with them or go to the mainland. But those plans been canceled. So, I'll see how it goes. I could see myself living in California but my mom doesn't want to leave Maui and also she doesn't want to be left alone. I'm looking forward to great things. 

    Anyways I'll be on hiatus, I don't know how long but just until I'm ready to return. See ya soon !




February 1, 2015



   Sorry for some lack of updates. I won't be much available to work on my projects. My dad got sick the past weeks, and then he had pneumonia so he had to be treated at the hospital for days. They did a colonoscopy and biopsy and found out he has pancreatic cancer, and apparently it's been there four about 3 months. He's home now but he's on oxygen tanks and taking lots of medications. He'll be resting in the living room now and we had to move a lot of things so my sister gave up her room for storage. Sad too because she finally wanted a nice room for herself but she said it's okay. So she'll be sleeping in my mom's room while my mom sleeps in the living room to keep my dad company. I'm very saddened by this news ;__; and I try to remain optimistic. I can't really get a job since no one can't watch and take care of him if he's alone. My mom's the only one working, plus my sister but she has college too and she may have to give up that but I'm like no, you need the education. And we're hoping to getting some help from others as well. Also we may have to move to a more affordable place. But yeah I just don't know what to really do. It's such a big change in my life : (

    For now updates will be slow paced, I'll continue submitting the rest of my Fakemon and work on my other projects, little by little. I'd like to focus more on art, to keep all this off my mind.

    If your life is in a stressful or difficult situation, just keep going and stay strong. Things will get better. Don't give up, you can power through it!

My deviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 3:48 PM
So it's deviantART's 14th birthday! I first joined as mcas47 on November 6, 2008 (Holy shit almost 6 years). I feel so old. Anyways, the reason I joined was because I wanted to submit my own designs of fanmade Pokémon. PokePages (who was then magespages when I joined) had like the best fakemon I ever saw and he was my inspiration. I wanted to be at his level. I wanted to be other people's inpsiration, too. So with lots of practice, I reached to where I am today. It's such a great feeling to hear that you're an inspiration and that people actually look up to you ;v; And it makes me want to continue drawing and making my watchers happy.

I also met many amazing people here and made great friends. They really supported me and helped me at times. If it wasn't for them, I don't know where I'd be tbh.


This was one of my first artworks that I did (and was satisfied with). I did this all in Photoshop when I didn't have a tablet yet. A lot of work was put into this and the outcome was great.


I love Hoenn and the starters so much so I made this fanart. Now that remakes are coming out soon, I am so excited ;v;


At first I was just doodling some chibis of my friends and I with plushies. Then I thought why not draw everyone else. And Christmas was near so the theme was like a plushie exchange.


I wanted do an artwork featuring my Generation 2 starters, plus wanted to try a somewhat different style. It's one of my favorite pieces.


I absolutely love Greninja and so I made this fanart. It was fun arting this and I'd love to do more in this style.

And that's all I have to share. Been busy with a couple projects. Good things to come. Expect more art soon!
Thanks for reading.
