Artworks of other artists that I like.
Good day, everyone.

I’m sorry I’ve been away.  My last log-in I think was around 2013-2014. The reasons for my absence, unfortunately are deeply personal, and the embarrassing details of it I would rather not share at this time and I’m hoping we can just leave it at that.

I really did not plan on coming back to DeviantArt until I a few more matters settled first, but I owe a number of people some already-paid-for-art that are years overdue, and I think this is a good for me time to re-engage with them and see if it’s not too late patch things up.

I would have liked to say that I will be happy to refund commissioners for the money already paid, but, sadly, because of my present financial circumstances, I am unable to. Instead, please accept my offer to work on those pics instead and therefore help me make it right with everyone. Because I am presently struggling to make ends meet, however, I cannot afford to devote 100% of my time to the artworks all the time, so I would ask for further patience to give me time to finish up everything in my list.

Speaking of which, I do still have the list, which also includes the type of commissions requested, but I no longer have the specific contact info of the individual commissioners. I also can’t access my old e-mail anymore because it had been dormant for a really long time so all the message threads are probably as good as lost.  It took me some time in fact to search my files for information on my DeviantArt password so I could log in back here again.

If I may, I would like to request everyone I owe art to get in touch with me via my new e-mail, which is  I still have most of the information about the commission and I think I also still have some finished art that have not been submitted yet, but I am also open to working on art based on revised information. I know some of those art are for specific stories or circumstances and if you think they’re already outdated and the resultant art would no longer be of use—as I assume would be the case for most of them—I’ll be happy to hear out what you have in mind.

Here are the commissioners that appear on my list: Shuma-Gorath, Devduck01, Kervala, Kley Sheddan, Jason4012, Exeter42, DragonTea, Egmccann, Gavin Riches, GPSBassist, Maguigan, Matthew Bigham, Matthew Steibling, MegatronResurected, Michael Holloway, Stryker, Wayne Thomason, Dynakor, Solari, Pumpmonger and Lordfoot-in-Mouth. If you are not in the list, please let me know, I might have inadvertently left you out. If I no longer owe you art, please let me know as well. (Edit: list updated based on new information)

I am actually looking forward to hearing from you and though I probably not be able to tackle everything in a short period, I am hoping to finally get everything done and make good with everyone. Besides, the least I can do is to spend a good deal of time with the art so I can deliver something you will be happy with. If I don’t hear from you, though, I will try my best to contact you, though that would probably be over DA since I no longer have a single e-mail address on my existing record.

Lastly and most importantly, please accept my deepest apologies for the inconvenience and for putting you through the fear that I might have run away with your money and not hear from me ever again. I also understand if some or even all of you are pissed at me but please rest assured that had I any choice I would never have disappeared unceremoniously. If you’re curious, though, I am okay given the circumstances, but it will really mean a lot to me if you will all give me a chance to work on all owed artworks so that I can finally erase any debt I have. After I’m done, I’ll probably be gone for some time again, but at least I can do that with clear conscience this time.

Thanks for your time and, for the commissioners, I hope to hear from you soon.


Edit: Found the finished but unsubmitted/un-posted pics. There are a few, but I also saw some submitted but un-posted pics. I will be uploading them shortly.


Angry Turtle
Warm up for the workload to come.  As to subject, I know this is not the most accurate depiction of Leo so please bear with me. It was the first random character I thought of and the pose was based on an old rough sketch I had in my folder (and, in turn, might have also been based off an old draft of a previously submitted drawing (Chain Reaction).
Chain Reaction for Argo
Another B & W commission done in 2014 for Argo Comics, though, like the others, not yet submitted.
Immolatasia Victorious for Exeter42
B & W commission for Exeter42, also done circa January 2014, though not yet submitted. This is part of a set if I remember correctly, and this is probably the only one missing from the set.
Xenomorph Girl for Ashley K
Another B&W commission that was finished but I didn't get to submit. This was done circa January 2014 for Ashley K. I haven't gotten in touch with the client yet, so I hope they see my updates.
Talon Knight for Reignier M
Another B&W commission for Reignier M. I haven't been able to get in touch with the client yet, but I hope he sees my updates.

Also done in early 2014.

Thanks. Ung mga black and white nong 2013/2014 pa ang mga yon, bago ako mawala. Turtles lang talaga ang bago.  Di ko pa rin alam kung ano ang kalalabasan ng mga utang kong pics na gagawin.
