commissions

hey, i’m ek and i’m finally reopening commissions! my prices remain pretty much the same, but i’ve made a few changes elsewhere. these include the option for custom tiled pixels & pixel backgrounds, which run for $15-25, though i’m lacking examples that aren’t months old. i feel as though my art’s improved a lot, so i’m excited to take on commissions again!

things to know
  • all commissions are through paypal!
  • i run by a first come, first serve basis.
  • for pixels, i will default to transparency unless told otherwise.
  • you are going to have to pay at least half of the total cost up front! it’s a precaution i take to ensure that i’ll still receive some payment.
  • i will refund if you change your mind, so long as it’s not after i’m done with the commission!
  • ocs or fandoms i am not well acquainted with will likely require some description or a reference sheet (the latter is preferred)!
  • edits to the finished work are free of charge.
  • i reserve the right to refuse commissions i am not comfortable with!
  • please give me at least 3 days to respond, i should get back to you by then. if not, feel free to resend your email!

for things i will and will not draw, please see here!

okay but pokeronpa ideas because Happy Kids Playing Mons

  • aoi and sakura always get opposite versions and compete to see who can complete the game first. aoi has a predisposition for water type starters, likes cute pokemon she’s raised and formed attachments to and focuses on hard-hitting attacks, sakura prefers getting the grass starters, bulky sweepers and tanks, and focuses on stat boost strategies.
  • for some reason i get ‘most likely to nuzlocke’ vibes from ishimaru. i feel like he’d like to challenge himself.
  • naegi’s favourite pokemon is eevee, because it’s a normal type, but it has so much potential.
  • mondo would have very powerful teams, definitely focused on canine pokemon and mons he hatched and and evolved and raised from level 1.
  • despite having the capabilities to, chihiro refuses to hack in pokemon for anyone, because ‘the game should be completed with your own strengths and talents!’.
  • yamada likely draws out certain events from his playthrough. from funny to dramatic, he’s got it all.
  • togami ‘has no time for these games!’. probably raising a team in his spare time anyway.
  • once word slipped out that togami did play pokemon, kuwata immediately challenged him to a 6v6 battle just to prove that maybe there is something the ~almighty byakuya togami~ can’t do. 
  • togami lost.
  • komaeda’s good luck cycles ensure he has pretty good shiny luck, but his enemies always have critical hits and good accuracy. because fuck.
  • nanami preorders the game and completes it before it even hits main stores. her speed at completing games has ensured her name is well-known in pokemon fancommunities for being the first source for late-game information.
  • she also has good VGC placings.
  • sonia is everyone’s go-to source for masuda method pokemon, due to having a novoselician DS.
  • probably also names pokemon funny names in novoselician and wonder trades them out. once, one of these pokemon ended up cycling all the way to souda, who kept it because it had sonia-san’s OT. he doesn’t yet know that he’s the proud owner of ‘vacuum cleaner’ the flabebe.
  • gundam’s main team is full of dark/ghost/ice types. but he’s shinyhunting for four shiny dedennes to name after his hamsters.
  • kuzuryuu always gets the fire type starters. also always has a dragon type on his in-game team. often challenges his classmates to battles.
  • when the next game comes out, nanami is going to give a shiny mew to whoever completes the regional dex first. hagakure has predicted that it will be a fun time of friendship and teamwork and cooperation. which is to say - it’s going to be the exact opposite.

okay, i think i’ve got a pretty good start on packing for sakuracon. just need to get some nonperishable food, and that should be it. tomorrow i’ll do some last minute chores to try and get some more cash to rely on, and then up to seattle!

i’m also bringing along some cards that i can cut up for drawing on, in case i work up the nerve to advertise commissions, yaaaaay *waggles hands*

barbaricyip replied to your photo “behold the magical glittershit fairy world of mediocris high school…”

i would read these courtship rituals

okay so luke was supposed to be a fox in the original draft, but then he started to look more like a thylacine in this doodle, and then when it came time to design moe i. sort of. went with the flow and tried to make her aboriginal. i dunno if i succeeded or not but she definitely looks appropriately fed up with his shit.

what would happen next is some variation of ‘dude you are a fucking jerk why are you treating me this way all i wanted to do was steal your shit and get out, GOD’, and then him sort of going ‘oh no she’s right AND hot’ and running away.

queue some ‘tale as old as time’ montage where he shows her his treasury and she takes a swim in gold, and they take potshots at the locals together while guffawing rudely. he does get a bit pissed off that she keeps cutting up all his fancy expensive ball gowns, but when she comes out with her reimagined fancy dress, cut to her taste, he still gets tongue-tied, and a tongue-tied thylacine is something to see. they have quite a lot of tongue.

for some reason i was reminded of the time where I had one of these sodas:

and it had been shaken at one point without me knowing, so when i cracked it open it started to foam and fizz like crazy.

So, to prevent it from getting everywhere i put my mouth over the entire cap and kept swallowing until it stopped

and that was my first gay experience

someone asked me to repost this.

behold the magical glittershit fairy world of mediocris
high school me arranged the coastal nations like a buffet because she lacks taste
i made the colors blue and pink because i still lack taste
who needs taste? i have a world full of pretty magical creatures all raring up to beat the shit out of each other. fuck yeah.
as a bonus, one of the myths of this world, regarding the origins of the human city Cast, again as told by high school tasteless me:

Prince Luke is a jerk. A sadistic bastard. The kind of guy who doesn’t really feel like taking that foot out of his mouth. The problem is that he’s been turned into a great buggery beast, but besides that, he’s locked in his own castle with no one but a bunch of temperamental servants until a girl falls in love with him. To fix it, he puts on a mask of naivety and lures in wandering maids by making them sympathise his plight. Unfortunately, sooner or later he always slips up and says something crude; mostly because he’s wearing a mask and not letting them fall in love with who he really is, until his latest maiden in distress tells him why his plan isn’t working, then leaves. He thinks about that for a few years.
Desdemona, or Moe, is greedy, rebellious, and as about unromantic as one can get without testosterone. She has just joined a league of treasure hunters, and has to bring a big load of valuables to make her a member. Rumor tells of an isolated castle that has never been ransacked, but is probably haunted. She goes anyway, cause she wants to look cool. The moment she steps onto the grounds, however, she can no longer leave until half a year passes, at the end of which she can either leave and never come back or marry the Prince.

i uh. i never figured out how it ended. but i’m reasonably sure that they came to be a hot sexy power couple who constantly bickered and set the pace for the next golden age for the human race.

Here’s what sleep deprivation is doing to your body

Not getting enough sleep? Just one week of sleeping fewer than six hours per night can lead to serious health issues, including the modification of over 700 genes, reports the Huffington Post on a study published in PNAS last year. Other symptoms of chronic sleep deprivation include everything from bloodshot eyes to quadrupled stroke risk. This infographic fromHuffington Post’s Alissa Scheller explains.
