Hey guys...

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 22, 2015, 8:39 PM
Hi everyone!

First, thanks to all the new watchers! ;hug; Love you guys :love:

Now, to the WHY I'm around here out of normal date: 

  I don't know how you would take this, but to me means bad news: I'm afraid I won't be answering comments anymore. The reason comes after I got a bad headache the other day, one that lasted the whole day, even after four painkillers, in regular terms I don't like taking medicine. After a lot of reflection, my mom, my ount *who's a doctor* and I got to the easiest, and final conclusion: it was because of stress.

I normally don't talk about my private life, but truth be told, I've been dealing with a lot of stuff around here since last year, and this year just got worse, I've been trying my best to keep it at bay, and not showing it around, but I just can't anymore: I became too emotional these past three months, I get irritated too easy, sometimes for no apparent reason; I'm falling asleep out of the blue; I get so sad that I start to cry out of the blue, again, for no apparent reason; my back hurts, my legs hurt, and I get these constant headaches, almost everyday now. Summed to that, I've been having some troubles to get work to actually get some money, here in my country arts are not appreciated as true talent, or a valuable job, so people, most of the time, refuses to pay what the work is worth for real.

  One of my true fears around here is that people may stop following my works, or think that I'm plain rude or so, if I stop posting or answering, or that those who are my closest friends will think  I don't care about them anymore.
But I assure you guys, even if I can't answer as much as I want, I do care and enjoy a lot what you all comment, or when you start following my work, since last year, it makes my days a bit brighter, and in the case of Angie's stories on my pics, the make them more tolerable, and even make me smile and laugh again. It also helps me see if I'm doing right or wrong, if you give me some critiques as feedback, I'll be more than happy to read those, so I can improve.

  While I won't answer all, it does not mean that I won't answer at all, I'll still answer if you ask me something related to my work and the way I do it, or any other doubt, also, to all those sweet things you all write to me on my birthday, I love those :3 To my closest friends too.
  I hope you don't mind this that much, but I feel is better that I let you know what happens with me no answering, and why, and avoid letting you go with the wrong idea about me.


  Now, to take the bad taste of the down mood, here, I leave you the link to my last video :)

I hope you like it ^^

OH! and I'll try to bring the new tutorial to my blog this week, I'm dealing on how to post it, since color is a more complex subject ^^;

And, I leave a poll, so please, go participate :)

  That's all by now, I wish you all a wonderful week.

Keep awesome, guys!

CM_Glitch by ShikimaAkemi
Hey everyone!! :wave:

Just in time! :XD:

This picture was a commission for  :iconglitch-sketch: Thanks a lot!! :squee: :hug:

  He requested a traditional picture with his OC and Sony playing "Twidash" with a pair of Twilie and Dashie's toys. Fashion and etc, up to me :)
Now, to details:
:bulletpurple: I wanted to make Sonata's hair a bit curled, and decided to make it a gradient in the end, only part hat stays as it is for her original design by Hasbro, is what is in front of her forehead *son't remember how do you call that ^^;* Since I like music, and guitars, I made her one, or at least the guitar case :D AND she's trying to contain her laughter
:bulletblue: For him... Ahem... Here comes the explanation: I worked o this picture for around one to two months (lost track of time, sorry ^^;) The reason is pretty silly if I say so myself, but here it goes.  Since ALL of my commissioners tend to request just girls, when I got two commissioners at once to request me male characters, I got a little panic attack, why? Because I had lost my practice on how to draw guys!! :cry: Soooo, I had to ask for a little time-out so I could practice :)
It took me around a month and a half to find a proper base to draw them, then the rest was to polish details and style, etc. So now this is the result :)
I gave him a pretty relaxed style for his outfit, but never the less good looking to the eyes :) The pencil on his ear represents his cutie mark :D He is looking at Twi and Dash, and enjoying the show lol
:bulletpurple: For the Twidash toys I decided to use Twidash plushies, i good love of the ones I have <3
:bulletblue: The little Twidash that appear on the corner were a little extra I wanted to add, the thermometer at their side shows their level of embarrassment :rofl: I'm just too evil with those two sometimes >D

Dash: Twi... remind me again, why the hay did we come to this world?
Twi: Princess mission...
Dash: Does that includes being teased and flustered by those two? ////;;
Twi: No, that's just our luck, Dash... ////;;

I REALLY enjoyed doing this picture!!! ^^ It's being so long since the last time I got requested to do a traditional picture for a commission!! :love:

All that is left is to keep practicing drawing guys, so I don't lose it again ^^;
Also, I will be making a tutorial for watercolor based on this picture, just gimme a chance to polish descriptions :)

I hope you like it guys!! 

And thanks again :iconglitch-sketch: for the commission!! ;hug;:heart:

I was wondering since it finished, and forgot to ask: Would you like to make the Feature months I did for Twidash, Rarijack and Pinkshy an every-year thing, unless all of you loose interest on the show? Or a "it just happened this time and won't happen ag
12 deviants said Every year!! :squee:
3 deviants said Nah, let's just keep it as the heat of the moment, and don't repeat it again :|
2 deviants said Maybe just a month for the three ships? :)

Love your art!!! What do you use to color in your traditional art?
ShikimaAkemi Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student General Artist
Hey!! Thanks a lot!! And thanks for the watch!! :tighthug:

I normally use watercolors, watercolor pencils, color pencils, soft pastels, acrylics, inks, coffee *yes, coffee lol*

Sometimes I mix different materials, other times I focus on just one, it depends on the result I want to get :)

If you are interested, I'm making some tutorials on my blog, the next one to come is to start about coloring materials specifically, here I leave you the link ^^

The color materials is taking me some time because is quite a huge subject to cover, but I hope to have it released this Saturday :)
