NEW INFO FOR CUSTOM COMMISSIONS

NEW DAKIMAKURA COMMISSION OPTION

Alongside of Chibi | Bust | Half Body | Full Body| print commissions will be Custom Dakimakura commissions. This option allows a person to have ZeroJigoku draw and design a one of a kind Dakimakura pillow case. Included in the price for this commission the customer will receive the design printed on a dakimakura pillow case and mailed to the mailing address they had provided. The mailing process of this option will take longer than the normal print commissions due to the cases are being printed by a third-party. However using a third-party for printing, ZeroJigoku will receive the cases and check them personally before mailing to the customer to ensure that quality is good.
======================================================
======================================================
NEW COMMISSION ADD-ON OPTION

As of now ZeroJigoku offers several add-on options such as lamination, color matte mounted, and hand-signed. Now there will be an option to have your custom commission printed onto a hand-pressed metal button badge. The button option is only available for Chibi | Bust | Half Body commissions, keep in mind that some cropping will happen. Even though some cropping will occur, the digital design of the button will be emailed to the customer before the print and making of the button. Changes of the cropping and such can be requested by the customer.

The buttons will be mailed along with the art print of the commission, the button will be in its own bubbled wrapped envelope inside the package with the art print. This helps to prevent the button from opening during transit and possibly damaging the art print.

This event is taking place off of my other social media accounts, and is open to 18+ persons.

===================
Christmas was great this year, finally got to come back to the states and have my family meet my son, as both my grandpas were in and out of the hospital. Sadly we werent able to come back in time for one of my grandpas to meet my son. Its been a really great visit overall, and I had received a button badge making machine for christmas as everyone pitched in to buy one. On that note, once I get back to singapore I will be working out button designs, as well as pricing for them so I can sell them off my website along with leftover acrylic charms from the Conventions last year.

Prepping for CNY! and other stuff

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 3, 2015, 12:41 AM
So yeah, trying to prep early for chinese new years this year (spring cleaning and redesigning the bedroom) hurrah!   
I've been quiet busy with school projects, as well as working on developing my own style through several sketches to improve myself at drawing full body characters. Pretty much just a lot of side studying outside of school work.


Lately been working alongside with my eldest sister to try and get stuff ready so we can sell stuff online, I will be selling art prints/ acrylic charms and such. What you typically will see me selling at Cons when i do attend. But for now Cons are being put on hold :(    until I can get a button machine, and get a decent acrylic charm manufacturer that is in SEA. Problem I am running into is just the whole translation from english to chinese and visa versa to find a good manufacturer in this region >w<;!

Hopefully sumtime soon I will be able to upload all the tons of sketches I have been working on developing during my studies :)

Once hes off to school ill start up doing live stream on a daily bases for commission/doodle time, as well as Ill be able to do more NSFW pieces since I wont have a two year old looking at my screen every few mins.

Naka-Kon 2015 in Kansas City!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 6, 2014, 2:02 AM

 

So let’s talk Naka-Kon 2015 convention that will be held in Kansas City. This is a convention that I had went to during my high school years; it was my very FIRST convention I had ever attended. I had attended each year it was started since 2004 when it was held at KU Campus. Sadly I had stopped attending after leaving for college, and soon moving to Singapore. 

 

I remember attending that first year, barely anyone was there but the one thing I remember was being in awe of those artist that were doing booths.  I remember thinking how brave they were for having so much confidence to do that and even draw in front of crowds of people.  The one thing that has stuck with me since then was that I wanted to do that someday. 11 years later and here I am trying to get a booth at Naka-Kon convention. I did get an email response back from them, but I am still waiting on the final response as to if I am accepted to have a booth in artist alley. Out of all the conventions that I could possible get a booth at here in Southeast Asia, I would give them all up just to attend and booth at Naka-Kon.

 

Anytime this month I can hear a response back from them, as soon as I do I will be updating here so that if anyone is in the USA and is able to attend then they could drop buy.  I will be selling acrylic charms, some new designs I am working on along with Bookmarks, stickers and more.  I am keeping my hopes up to hear a final yes from them!



Anyone with a tablet had this problem??

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 7, 2014, 12:29 AM
Okay well I had gotten a brand new Wacom bamboo pen and touch tablet last year from an employer to do work with, well I have been taking great care of it,even made it a padded case which I keep it in when not using, and It has NEVER been dropped. Recently I have been trying to use it, just like normal and the sensitivity is all out of whack, its having trouble detecting when i switch to the end of the pen verses the tip and so forth. I did go and download and updated to the latest drivers for it but still the same issues. So I had went ahead and put all the tablet/pen settings back to default, still the problem persists. I cannot do any sort of artwork that needs pen pressure for it while this problem persist :[    

Has anyone with a tablet ever had this issue before??

Disliked for Singaporean Dentist

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 12, 2014, 5:04 AM
..I want a tooth pulled but I want to be knocked out when they do it D:  Singaporean dentists dont have the stuff to put me asleep.  The tooth is far gone (was cracked when I had braces at a younger age and didnt know it till half the tooth was missing last year.)  D: I dont want to go threw the pain staking of having a filling, and than sumtime down the rode have it fall out and have to get it redone.  Its the very back molar *not like i use it lol*  Think I might have to wait till I actually go back to the USA and get it pulled than cuz I know they are more than willing to knock me out LOL

*Has a big fear of dentist/doctors*  >:|


Anyways..to deal with the pain I have been guzzling mouthwash religiously throughout the day, and popping pills when its too bad.

New GPU+Windows

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 3, 2014, 11:37 PM
Alright..well I am almost back up and in business of doing digital work ~w~;....   The new GPU installed just fine, I was so happy to figure out how to do that shit, even if I had to watch tons of videos and read guides to give myself confidence before hand haha.  Sadly after installing and everything my Windows version said it was out of trial period.  Now story behind this is when I thought my pc was like dieing, or virus or sumthing my sisters hubby gave me a copy of windows student edition becuz I could not (still cant) find the 2nd half of my original windows 7 home edition 2nd disc ._.;  so..yeah  

Currently I am installing windows on it, so hopefully this goes good, no funky errors and I am able to start drawing my heart out again, I do have a typography and digital imagine manipulating courses this semester so I might decide to post up works from those classes as well.  I am really backed up on commissions so I will be posting up some of the commissions as well.  

Anyone Know?

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 23, 2014, 11:48 AM
@@; Well due to all the mishaps I have had lately, I havent been able to keep updated with things that go around online.  I noticed just today that the user :icong--unit:  has disabled his account.  Does anyone happen to know what had happened? Or why he had deactivated his account?  I did talk to him more than most people, so I was curious as to what might of happened or anyway to contact him by other means other than DA.  @@;  



In the meantime, I am almost caught up with school work *phew*  -w-;    but I got a buttload of actual work for my hubbys company to do. Mainly doing logo and web design for his clients.  @@; dunno if I will bother to post up that work here since I generally do not like this type of work lol.  D: Iunno maybe if I am bored enough I will post just to show =w= we will see..

Finally back!

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 18, 2014, 10:55 AM
Alright, my net is finally back on *hopefully for good!*

Anyways I have alot of catching up to do, soon I will have a new GPU for my desktop so I can start drawing digital work again.  I no longer have a scanner (whole printer busted the day before the convention *gaaaay*)  so even my traditional work at most I can just submit crap phone photos of them lol.

Anywho, the convention went pretty well since I was working alone up till the last 3 hours of each day when my hubby would come help so I could take a break. Thou I did get extremely dehydrated the first day, not to the point I was in the hospital but enough to make me terribly sick the 2nd day. I still stuck with it thou! Did the whole convention day even thou I probably looked like crap from feeling so sick.  After the convention was over thou I started getting really sick, ended up running a high fever the next day that lasted for two days.  Fever finally broke today, but I ended up with low blood pressure and my hubby rushed me to the doctor after I had almost fainted while making dinner for our son.  Doctor pretty much prescribed me to intake alot of sugar to fix my blood pressure as well as tons of water and juice, or other sort of sugar drinks.

Besides all of that, I do feel I am better equipped with the knowledge and experience to improve in my own artwork and setup for artist alley at conventions.  I am hoping I can attend more, as I had did a really great job this first time and hope I can improve the next.

School+Quick Sketches

Journal Entry: Thu May 8, 2014, 3:53 AM
Convention/Quick Sketches
So I am in the middle of prepping myself for upcoming FAM con and I have been doing 20 minute sketches, trying to get it to the point where I can ink+color them all in 20 minutes or less so that I am able to take in postcard sized commissions at the convention with no problem with time.  So be prepared to see some uploads of a bunch of new sketches.
Feel free to suggest characters to be drawn, I am doing fanart since this is prepping for convention stuff.

School
Other good news, I was given a 10k grant for my school, but I had to enlist as a full time student instead of my current part time student status x.o  Which ultimately means that I will not have any time to draw outside of homework time ;A;   unless I were to skip a few nights of sleep during the week so I can draw new artwork for convention products etc. I have 3 more weeks left of this semester before I start as a full time student.
