Commissions to fund trip!

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 24, 2014, 10:25 PM
My Tumblr l My Twitter l My Youtube l dA Portfolio

Hey guys I rarely make new journals on here but I'm making one for a project very important to me.
Me and my friend Audrey met here on deviantart 7 years ago, and we've been best of friends ever since.
After all this time, we would really like to meet face to face by having her fly here to Quebec for a few weeks. 
However Audrey doesn't have a steady income right now so she is opening super cheap commissions to try and fund her flight!

Check out this link for all the info: 

I am also taking commissions as always and all money will go toward paying for this trip! Info on my commissions can be found here:

So you can get some real sweet and cheap art while also helping us make one of our dreams come true!
If you have no money, just getting the word out to your friends would be really appreciated!

Still alive

Man I haven't been here in a quite a long time... :/ dA has kinda died down for me, I dunno about you... Well if you follow me on my tumblr, you can see I've been pretty active on there in the last few months. Recently added most of what I posted there on here too!

I've been trying to draw more and more, but I've mostly done sketches, headshots, monochromatic shit like that... I need to start working on some more big color pictures soon... I'm really trying to find time to draw and to improve in as many aspects as I can, but the general lack of interest from people is kinda bumming me out lol Oh well...

Anyone still alive on this site? How have you guys been?

Username change

EDIT::: There, I changed it. Hey guys, this is KIDNIX, my new username is LUKAEL-ART. :) It's not Lukael, but what can I do. Stupid inactive accounts.

---------------------------------------------------------------------


FINALLY DEVIANTART ALLOWS USERNAME CHANGES.

So naturally, I wanted to change mine to my real name and most recurring username (on Tumblr and such), "Lukael". HOWEVER, TURNS OUT THAT NAME IS ALREADY TAKEN BY SOME FUCKING EMPTY ACCOUNT THAT HAS NO GALLERY, NO ACTIVITY, NOTTTTTTHIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNG.

lukael.deviantart.com/

Sooooooooooo what should I do? Should I just keep "kidnix"? Should I use something like "LukaelArt"? Any idea? I'm so fucking pissed by this, dunno what to do....

Free sketches/requests!

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 6, 2012, 10:13 PM
My Tumblr l My Twitter l My Youtube l dA Portfolio

Okay, let me just clarify my current situation; I'm still busy as usual with my full-time job and other things. However, I've also most likely gotten a new children book illustration contract, so I'll be working on that during the next few months. Once that's done, I'm hoping to finish my series of pictures on Final Fantasy, and I've also got another series of pictures of my OCs in a fighting game style that I'd like to do.

Now, that being said, before I sit down and work on contracts, I like to doodle a bit as a warm up, and I really like giving art away and drawing plenty of different things :) so, I'll be taking all of your suggestions, ideas, references, anything! If you have an OC you'd like me to draw, comment on this journal with some references! If it's a fanart of a video game or cartoon character, link me to a picture of that character!

Now, I'm not guaranteeing anything to anyone! I can't say I will draw everyone's suggestion, but I'll try doing as much as I can, I just want a pool of ideas I can pick from for when I want to doodle. I'll go with what I find interesting, so if I think an idea or design is really good, I'll probably make a more complete picture of it.

So comment away! No limit of characters or ideas either! :D By the way, head to my tumblr if you want to see the individual sketches as they are done! Otherwise I'll just submit them as an art dump on here once I've got a few of them stacked.

Also, congrats to Disolia on catching the 50 000 kiriban!

Kiriban 50 000

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 29, 2011, 2:54 PM
:iconlukael-art:


::UPDATE::
And it's done!! Conrats to Disolia !! Thanks everyone for participating!! Considering how many people seem to have tried to caught it, I might just open a free sketch journal soon, whenever I need a warmup I could pick a few names in there and draw a quick thingie, why not!

-------------------------------------------------------------

Only about 50 pageviews left!! Who's gonna get it? ;)
--------------------------------------------------------------

Why is it even called a kiriban? What the hell is a kiriban?? I never quite got that...

Anyway, yeah! After 5 years, I'm nearing the 50 000 page views mark. I really doubt anyone will bother, LOL but shall anyone catch a screenshot of my 50 000 and send it to me in a note, I'll draw them a sketch of anything they want. :) I'd offer a more complete picture but I'm really busy these days so I unfortunately don't have the time for any more. For now, at least.

Good luck!

US Senate votes to end Bill of Rights

This can't be real, right? It has to be some kind of hoax or mistake. If not, spread the word my american friends, your country is in deep DEEP trouble.

You basically have no rights anymore. This grants the military the power to arrest, detain, interrogate and even kill U.S. Citizens.

Yeah after seeing veroro doing it I figured I might try recording myself while I work on some pictures. It's really fun to watch once I'm done! Watching 2h30 compressed in 4 minutes almost makes it look easy, ahah!

So yeah, I'll probably record some more in the future, but when I do, I won't always make a journal about it, the youtube link will simply be in the video's description. :) So look out for those if you're interested.

You can watch me working on my FFVI fanart here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLWKrG…

Sup guys!

No big updates, still trying to sketch off the art block and trying to work on some old unfinished pictures.

Mainly just wanted to remind you all that you can see my sketches and doodles on my tumblr: lukael.tumblr.com/ , since I wasn't really active or posting anything on there until now. They can also be found on my twitter: twitter.com/Lukael I'm trying to be more active in general on my social networking sites eheh. If you have either, feel free to add me. :)

That's it for now, I hope to have finished pictures to submit on here soon!

Take care, y'all!

Sup whoever reads this. Yeaaaah, as you might have noticed, I haven't been here in a while. I was drawing quite a lot before June, but then my girlfriend moved in with me, then I moved into another appartment with her, and I've been working a lot and been very busy since then, I haven't had time or motivation to work on a single picture! I'm hoping things will get less busy soon, I really need some vacations..... Plus my photoshop's been acting out, and my computer has, too....

More characters are getting revealed for SC5, so that's a nice income of inspiration, you'll get to see some fanarts of that for sure! But I also really want to finish my Final Fantasy set I was doing too... And I also want to come back to drawing my characters! Hopefully this will happen soon.

Thanks to whoever takes the time to read this, I hope I can show some new stuff soon!
Take care!

Soul Calibur V

Journal Entry: Wed May 11, 2011, 5:12 AM
:iconlukael-art:


Yeah, this just got announced apparently. More info here: www.neogaf.com/forum/showthrea…

Set 17 years after the events of SCIV? Man, that's a big jump forward to do for a fighting game. Most characters will be well in their 40s. Ivy' breast better be down to her knees.

It's a pretty bold move, but to be honest, Soul Calibur really needs to reinvent itself at this point. The fighting genre has really leaped forward in the last few years with the Tekkens, Street Fighters, Blazblue, the new Mortal Kombat. The bar is higher now than it's ever been before, so I hope they can deliver, because SC3 and SC4 really didn't do that much for me, gameplay. I've always loved the character designs in SC more than the actual games or gameplay. Especially since the story is never really told that well in SC games... It got worse the more it went. Developpers need to look at MK9's story mode and take notes. Lots of notes.

It'll be really interesting to see what they do with the current roster of characters. One thing that's cool with Soul Calibur is that the designs and costumes really change a lot from game to game, especially compared to like... Tekken and the likes. But with a 17 years leap ahead? Damn. Who will stay, who will get cut? Who will replace them? Can't wait for Amy and Tira's new designs!

What are your thoughts? I'm sure I've got a few SC fans among you watchers!

*EDIT*
Look at this awesome rendition of Bina that I got from Hellobaby :D


Awww hell yeah! I just finished illustrating my second children book, which means that after 2 months, I am finally free to draw for myself again! So you can expect a lot of new art soon! I have a bunch of art trades and collabs to take care of with the likes of :iconjulia-alison: :icond-vega: :iconcrystalcurtis:, as well as many many ideas for pictures of my own. I wanna do big tribute pictures of things like Blazblue, Final Fantasy, Repo!, etc. as well as draw new and complete character profiles for all of my OCs. Let's get this party started!

Btw, still no word about Udon's Megaman Tribute book, so I still have no idea if I was picked or not. They're a month late in their announcement, which kinda suck, but they're waiting for approval by Capcom, who, considering Japan's recent situation, probably have their hands full with other stuff. It's okay, doesn't matter. I'm in no hurry, I'm still holding hope to be in it though.

Finally, check out some of these great commissions I got in the last 2 months! Pretty daaaaaaamn sweet stuff!

Hey there!!
Whoever reads this lol I have a friend you may know, :iconjulia-alison:, who's having a bit of a financial problem, so she's opening commissions! If you have some money to spare and want an awesome picture at a cheap price, go ahead and contact her!! Believe me, it's worth it, she's real talented!

All the informations can be found in this journal: cae-sar.deviantart.com/journal…

I'mma go ahead and get one or two myself! :D I'd appreciate it if you did too!

In other news, I still have no news from Udon, but they said no winner had been contacted yet, so I'm still holding hope!

It's been a while already since I've finished and submitted my piece for Udon's Megaman Tribute Book (www.megamantribute.com/), but I haven't really shown any WIPS on here...

Well, the wait is killing me so here's a sneak peek for you guys!! Spent many dozen hours on this entry.



Only a few days left until March... The winners are supposed to be notified by the end of february, so if I don't get any confirmation within the next few days, it'll sadly mean I'm free to upload it here lol Of course I'd much rather be picked but well.... can only keep my fingers crossed....

In other news, there won't be any new picture on here until April... I'm working full time on illustrating a children's book, so..... but I can't wait to get back to my own pictures!! Got a ton of ideas, so I'll be back with a lot of submissions!

So yeah :) Really happy with those!

In other news, I'm working on an entry for Udon's Megaman Tribute book. I don't know if I really have any chance but, who knows! It's worth a try at least. Other than that, I'll be working on illustrating a second children book in the next few months, so I might not be drawing much else for a while. But I'll certainly try in between. :)
