Greetings everyone!


This is sort of an emergency offer, long story short, my graphic tablet decided to die on me today, leaving me with no tool to do my regular job (aka digital commissions) until I get it fixed OR until I buy a new one. I ordered a new cord for now, in hope for it fixing the issue (Wacom’s cords love to give up on people) but right now I can’t really tell if it’s going to fix things, or if it’s the issue with the port which will require servicing it or if it’s something entirelly else. It’s going to take at least a few days before the cord gets shipped and I get mentally prepared for it to possibly take longer than that, which messes up my regular work schedule planned for incoming week or even longer and causes me a lot of headache hahaha.

In hope to make up for the hole in my planned budget and to cover up the possible expenses of fixing/replacing my tablet, I am opening a time limited offer for Colored Penci Sketch Commissions.

Here’s all you need to know:


  •    Commissions are done in pencil on A4 paper, then scanned and edited digitally, they are approx. 700 x 1000 px in size (the size may vary depending of the character and how much space they take).
  •    The sketch is a Waist-up and it comes with the simple shading, gradient color and paper texture, also possibly with additional colored highlights like eyes and simple background, if I’ll find them complimenting the piece.
  •    Visual references are required!! (due to the time limit, I won’t have time for figuring out designs from written descriptions, my apologies!)
  •    Personal Use only
  •    Character may be OC, Fanart, game characters, etc etc. As long as I’m able to draw them in this commission style, anything’s possible!
  •    Prices are: $50 per character, or $80 in case you want a pair (with simple interaction), USD dollars.
  •    Payment is upfront via Paypal, I will send you an invoice to your paypal address. Fees are included in the price.
  •    Order goes by first come, first serve rule (or rather first pay, first serve, no slot holding due to the time limit)
  •    It is a time limited offer, the amount of slots may be limited to how many pictures I will be able to accept between 30th May and 3rd of June (wednesday - sunday, 5 days) (Last time I did this kind of offer I finished 11 pictures in 3 days)
  •    The commissions will be accepted in batches of 3, then when finished, I will accept another 3 and so on until Sunday ends, or until I die from exhaustion HAHAHA.
  •     I accept the commission and payment only when I’m ready to start working on your picture. I’ll inform you if I won’t be able to accept your commission (which will be probably at late Sunday, due to the end of the offer)

CONTACT :


You may message me, note me, or send me an e-mail to kodamacreative@gmail.com .
Your message should include: link to character’s visual references and your paypal address, you may also include some short additional info.
You can message me anytime starting from now, I will be accepting 3 commissions per batch, starting Wednesday and utill the end of the week, so make sure to keep an eye on your messages to not miss your spot!  I’ll be posting updates through my twitter, tumblr and my deviantart.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask! Thank you!  ❤️

And here are some examples of this kind of commissions I did last year (they were done fullly digitally, so the technique may subtly vary):

Good evening!


The last commission from the third batch is complete and that wraps up this weekend’s sketch commissions deal! Thank you very much for such a great response from everyone, I wish I could’ve reach out to more of you, but I think 11 pictures in 3 days is still a pretty satisying result! I hope to open up this sort of commissions sometime again in the future, it was a really great, refreshing experience and I know there’s still lots of characters out there who would be interesting to draw. For now though, I’m getting back to my regular schedule, after I get some nice, desired sleep, preferably for 5 days haha. Thank you once again! Goodnight!


Here are all finished commissions:

Hello! (from the floor, melting)


How are you guys, is summer same hot and unbearable to you as it is to me? I'm literally a wet, gross mess here from that heat outside, all windows closed and covered even in a hot day like this, because it's simply colder inside than outside. Unbelievable, it's a crazy weather like for the region where I live.

Either way I just wanted to make some update other than artsu, since I'm  uploading a bit less stuff lately than usually (I'm blaming the heat, it makes me feel lazy and sleepy all the time), but no worries, I'm still sitting here and working like a busy bee, slowly crawling through the commission waiting list and trying to find more time for personal art (and rp huehehe, thanks to everyone who recommended me groups in my last poll!)

From more exciting news I figured out lately that drawing sketches on tiny sticky notes is hella fun thing to do, you can't really focus on details in those, so instead you have more freedom to play wit composition and general ideas. Here are some of the tiny sketches I did lately:

Fd533e5761976d799d80db99aa382c95 by Yaoi-World 6a5f926a7eb4321c887862b61011ed4a by Yaoi-World 245c25549aa6ebb561c36f7f5f149fbd by Yaoi-World 64faaf1c6ee993c5ec5cc1c8178acd34 by Yaoi-World 699dc52f68428ed4d54ae3c373523e05 by Yaoi-World 9be859b7958b1810edf8aa91b0d11c9c by Yaoi-World
   
It is only part of them, I have like bazillion more.

  Most of them are pictures of Kaozu (Kazuma x Yaozu //DORKY SNORT), the couple I'm writing with :iconraevene: raevene, some of them are inspired by the recent plot where Kazuma's memories get all fucked up by mysterious drug called Memento (I made up whole history and effects for that drug, definitely more detailed than necessaryLOL my fascination with illegal substances should be tamed). But you can also see there some sketches of Touya (dark haired dude with the neck tattoo) the guy responsible for all that mess, he's my background character for the plot line between Yao and Kaz. The guy joined reINKarnation, the tattoo studio where Yaozu works and states that he's a big fan of Yao, asking to become his apprentice and becoming his friend. Yao doesn't know thought that Touya is in truth sent by the group/gang/thing called Censura to which Kazuma belonged in the past and which caused a lot of mess in his past. And now Touya is trying to mess up some more :icontobyapprovesplz: 

There's also a couple of girls, Haruna and her girlfriend Machiko who are Yaozu's friends also. Haruna happened to be a popular interior designer and once she had a chance to work with Yaozu on the seasonal theme design of one of the popular clubs downtown, she recognized his talent and they stayed in touch. I like to think about that couple sometimes, the girls are adorable, Machiko (taller one) is 8 years younger than Haruna, she's studying fashion design and she's more of a gothic lolita fashion style person, when Haruna is very simple in her choice of clothes, but still loves all kind of soft, girly things (and especially her girlfriend)

I'M SORRY FOR SO MUCH TEXT I just thought that maybe you guys would like to know some background story behind the characters I draw in my personal time, especially that I draw them quite a lot lately and I'm gonna draw even more in near future, especially that I started to work on Yaozu's new reference sheet, the guy need some fresh air and I was debating between making his hair grow longer or cutting it short, so eventually I though WHY NOT TO HAVE BOTH! Here's some sketches:

Yao by Yaoi-World
Yao001 by Yaoi-World
My dorky son sob

Generally, most of those sketches I upload to my accounts on other platforms, like twtter, tumblr (KodamaCreative), facebook or instagram (this one is new), on each of them I'm going by my official name KodamaCreative, so generally if you're interested to see more of my art updates, sketches and also non-BL related artworks or interact with me more (this one goes for twitter, which I spam daily), I encourage you to check out those accounts too!

Oh, and I have also updated my Commission Page  with new look and updated prices, so now the Spicy (NSFW) stuff is in the same price as regular SFW one.

On the last note, I'm currently living on Metal Gear hype, I'm trembling at the thought alone about The Phantom Pain and watching my boyfriend replaying the first Metal Gear Solid so I can be mentally prepared for next month. I honestly can't wait, my body is ready for pain and suffer, I know this part will ruin my emotionally, the Ground Zeroes alone was heart wrecking.

Big Boss by Yaoi-World
Here's my quick messy painting experiment with Big Boss.
I hope to find some more time for MGS fanart, I have so m any things I want to draw ahhh


So yeah, I hope your summer will be gentle with you, get tan and supply your body with that Vitamin D, right :iconsexysmileplz:? //GETS HIT BY THE CAR FOR DISASTROUS PUNS


Update July 3


Good morning, following your comments I messaged the EFF, foundation responsible of defending your rights in the internet to let them know that their petition is archived, since I'm not sure if they are aware of that. In meantime I updated the petition link with another one available on their website, which you can find in here: Contact Your Lawmakers and Speak Out Against the TPP (U.S.) It's in a form of auto-generated message on the right side of the website, you can edit it to your own needs of course or write it on your own, it's a nice solution though if you don't know how to put it all in pretty words. It basically covers up your concern about TPP as a consumer and constituent, asks for releasing the secret documents so they could be available to public and asks for the right to have any input in TPP agreement (remember to read that message before sending it, be aware of what you're doing :) ).

You can also sign up another petition
www.avaaz.org/en/millions_to_s… (it may look silly with death star picture and all that, but it's actually a valid petition going to reach 2 million votes soon. Let's make this happen)


 As soon as EFF updates their petition link with new one or provides any other ways for how we may make a difference, I'll let you know.


TPP


So I usually don't take a part in these kinds of things, but when the topic of limiting internet freedom and privacy comes back, I'm feeling honestly very bothered. Especially when I recall how the government tries to enforce the laws limiting internet for some time already (SOPA, ACTA). The topic comes back under different names and different forms and the only thing that changes is its name and how much more sneaky they are trying to be about it. This time though the thing is so much bigger than before and covers up many different, important aspects of our everyday lives.

And this is something what is happening right now, even though we are meant to be not aware of that. Please read this journal, or at least watch the video and please try to spread the word. I know you may think you alone make no difference, but believe me you do. A whole lot of people have no idea about it, possibly just as you didn't know till now and I think we have to be aware of that. That's the only way to put the spotlight on it, before we can even consider taking any steps in stopping it. Especially that right now we, as public, are completely cut out of this discussion.


Video


I know it may seem boring and confusing and you may feel like you have no time for this right now, but please please watch the video, it explains everything in a very clear, simple to understand way, it’s only 2:40 long and its about something what may affect every single, even the tiniest one of us in a very painful way.

Information

(info is fully copy pasted from different sources linked below)

Obama just signed a law allowing him to fast track TPP and other “trade agreements”, allowing him to accept it with just a simple majority.

what is TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership)?


The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a secretive, multinational trade agreement that threatens to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe and rewrite international rules on its enforcement. Only a small part of TPP is actually about trade, and it will affect every aspect of your life from healthcare to food to internet.  

The main problems are:


(1) Intellectual Property Chapter: Leaked draft texts of the agreement show that the IP chapter would have extensive negative ramifications for users’ freedom of speech, right to privacy and hinder peoples' abilities to innovate.

(2) Lack of Transparency: The entire process shrouded in secrecy.

The twelve nations currently negotiating the TPP are the US, Japan, Australia, Peru, Malaysia, Vietnam, New Zealand, Chile, Singapore, Canada, Mexico, and Brunei Darussalam. The TPP contains a chapter on intellectual property covering copyright, trademarks, and patents. Since the draft text of the agreement has never been officially released to the public, we know from leaked documents, such as the May 2014 draft of the TPP Intellectual Property Chapter [PDF], that US negotiators are pushing for the adoption of copyright measures far more restrictive than currently required by international treaties, including the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).



The TPP Will Rewrite Global Rules on Intellectual Property Enforcement


In short, countries would have to abandon any efforts to learn from the mistakes of the US and its experience with the DMCA over the last 12 years, and adopt many of the most controversial aspects of US copyright law in their entirety. At the same time, the US IP chapter does not export the limitations and exceptions in the US copyright regime like fair use, which have enabled freedom of expression and technological innovation to flourish in the US. It includes only a placeholder for exceptions and limitations. This raises serious concerns about other countries’ sovereignty and the ability of national governments to set laws and policies to meet their domestic priorities.

This won’t happen in a court of your own country, this will place an international court above your laws. Consumer rights, from food to your favourite hobby, will be raped mercilessly. Think it’s bad now? You haven’t seen anything.

TPP will make it easier to outsource labor in Asia


From governmental contracts to code monkeys trough services, you will be competing with third-world slave labor and buying its products. Should you be able to afford it and have some free time as your working hours get closer to those of Vietnam

TPP can force your ISP to monitor your internet activity, and fine you or even send you to jail.


It will be possible to fine you even just for copying a DVD you own to your hard drive. It’s SOPA and all that shit right back from the dead.

I’m in EU, who gives a shit!


TTIP is the same shit EU-flavoured and it’s going to hurt you. It will be negotiated by that most democratic institution called the European Commission, so you know you’re fucked.

Why You Should Care

TPP raises significant concerns about citizens’ freedom of expression, due process, innovation, the future of the Internet’s global infrastructure, and the right of sovereign nations to develop policies and laws that best meet their domestic priorities. In sum, the TPP puts at risk some of the most fundamental rights that enable access to knowledge for the world’s citizens.



I don’t believe you OP, I want to read what it says!


Well too fucking bad, because it isn’t just secret, it will remain secret for four years after it’s accepted. Talk about transparency. However a small part has been leaked, you can read more here:

What You Can Do


Sign up the petition www.avaaz.org/en/millions_to_s… (it may look silly with death star picture and all that, but it's actually a valid petition going to reach 2 million votes soon. Let's make this happen)


(UPDATED) Are you in the United States?


Contact Your Lawmakers and Speak Out Against the TPP (U.S.), Demand your state representatives oppose any initiative to enact Fast Track (aka Trade Promotion Authority), which hands their own constitutional authority to debate and modify trade law.

Local Actions Around the World

  • If you're in Canada, you can use the Council of Canadians' tool to send a message to your international trade minister and members of the parliamentary trade committee to release the secret TPP text and negotiate the deal with proper public input.
  • 日本に住んでいる方には、Stop TPP!! ウェブページでご案内できますし、Stop TPPのT−シャツを買う事もできます。

Other than than you can spread the word, we proved many times already that as a mass we can really make a difference and I think this case needs same powerful pressure and response as the previous ones in the past. Add #TPP to your hashtags, post in social media, talk to your friends and family about it. Help people be aware of how they're being robbed from information and their freedom of choice. Don't do it for me, do it for yourself.



I was taking a long bath today and decided that I want to make a Patreon.

I was thinking about it for some time already and today I decided it’s time to stop thinking and start doing! (long baths in the sanctuary of eternal focus called bathtub encourage such decisions, you should try it sometimes too LOL)

5e9a93944ba4eb07711488e69e8f0501 by Yaoi-World
Trust me, it really works.



SO I wanted to ask my dear followers, every single one of you, if there are any specific things you would like to see me doing? (other than naked pictures LAUGHS) I figured I can make speedpaint videos once for a while on my bf’s computer (because mine is too old for this) and try to do livestreams if I won’t die from nervousness (it’s still to be tested), I would like to continue uploading my WIPs on my social media sites as I do, because I don’t really want to limit public access to my works, so instead of taking from publicly available materials I would rather prefer to add some neat bonuses for people who would like to support me in growing.

I can try do some tutorials about things I feel especially comfortable in, but I don’t want to end up as some artists who’s tutorials have close to none real value and who don’t really know what they’re doing. I can share my .PSD files with layers of more interesting pictures. I would like to also make some request sessions once for a while, because man, drawing for others with no business included is fun. I will make monthly badges rewards and maybe make some chat sessions? Would you like that? Having some awkward chitchats with me?LAUGHS

Generally my perfect end game would be getting enough of money from it so I can reduce the amount of commissions I have to make every month to pay my bills and so I can focus on drawing my personal projects instead. I have lots of really solid ideas I would like to work on for a very long time already, including comics and printed materials and for which I simply cannot muster energy and time in current circumstances. As much as drawing for others is fun and allows me to develop in multiple fields and I doubt I will ever stop doing that, I still strive for more freedom and I still want to try new things. I think Patreon can be my chance to achieve that.

SO MY QUESTION IS: Are there any specific things you would like me to provide to you as my potential patron and what would it take to convince you to support me in my art journey?


Hello guys!


Recently my buddy asked this question on twitter and I started to wonder how is it with my style. Does it remind you someone's art? Is it anyhow distinctive enough to stick out among others? I'm honestly very curious about it! I know who my inspiration is and who use to influence me, but I also wonder if some of it shows in my art, or if completely by accident someone else's art makes you think of mine be it by the style or technique or anything else. It's super hard to see this kind of things in our own art, see it through the eyes of other people, that's why I thought I could ask you about your honest opinion :'D

In the other news, my account is going to hit 600,000 pageviews soon, so I'm working on a small celebration picture and thinking about some small sketch giveaway :iconsexywinkplz: watch out for this!



Hello hello!

I just wanted to make a small update, because in the next few days up to a week I may not be online much if at all. The reason of such turn of events is that I am moving out to a new place. I rent an apartment on my own with my partner since the last summer and we had a contract with the apartment's owner till July, hoping to extend it for another year or so, but recently, a week ago, the owner contacted us saying she is forced to terminate our contract early, because of personal reasons, so we have to move out by the end of February. Luckily we found a new place not so far away in similar price and quality, but of course it is still pretty much out of my planned schedule, it's a lot of stress and planning and it's gonna take a moment before we settle down, get an internet access there etc. It's not gonna influence the commission orders though, I'm still gonna work on them be it on paper or digitally, I just may be out of reach for this next week.

The blessing in disguise is that we're gonna have way better internet connection in the new apartment, so maybe if my hardware won't fail me and I overcome my nervousnessLOL I'll be able to finally start doing livestreams \o/

Either way I just want the next week to end so I can get back to my cozy everyday order of things. Wish me good luck! :heart:

Does music influence you as an artist?

Mon Jan 19, 2015, 10:51 PM


 Hey there!


I am think a lot about music recently and how it always used to influence my creativity. As far as I can remember, music was always a source of inspiration and ideas for me, sometimes because of the lyrics, sometimes because of the melody and always because of the emotions the song was giving me and images it was planting in my head. There are some songs that fuel my imagination and many times give me ideas for stories behind my pictures or characters, or for emotions I try to present in my art, for colors I see in my head when I heard specific song. This connection was always very important for me and honestly, most of the pictures I made under music influence ended up as my personally favorite pieces.

How about you? How do you feel about music? Do you listen to music when you create your art? Does it influence you or inspire you as an artist?  Did you ever make a picture portraying your interpretation of a song or it's lyrics? Share with me your most inspirational songs and tell me what makes them so special for you, show me your pictures you made to music and your stories related with this topic.



Hey hey!


As a person making a living from my art, I use to think about art market on everyday basis, observing new trends and different approach of other artists to this subject. It is all extremely fascinating subject to me, especially with art being hard to be simply evaluated. It's extremely subjective thing and I thought it would be interesting to know your opinions about it. That's why I prepared some questions to consider and think about. Feel free to comment with your answers and general thoughts and experiences regarding this topic!

As an artist, what are your average prices? What kind of prices would satisfy you? Do you treat art as your job or only as a hobby? What is the biggest art order you ever worked on? What was your the best and the most frustrating experience with a client? What kind of art do you sell the most often? On what kind of commissions do you like to work the best? How long does it take you to finish an order? What would be your advice for other artists starting on with their commissions?


As a buyer, what kind of money are you willing to pay for art? How often do you buy art? What are you doing with the pictures you bought? What was the best piece you got? What was the biggest disappointment? What are the things that make you want to commission specific artist? Does it happen to you to return to the artists you commissioned before for more art? What kind of commissions do you buy the most often? How do you find the right artists to commission?

Let me know what you think!





Hey hey hey!


        Wow it was ages since I wrote the last journal, I should seriously consider writing them more often OTL Either way! How are you? I hope the beginning of a new year was good for you and you didn't give up on your new year resolutions just yet :iconenteistareplz: *stares into your souls*

        First of all I wanted to thank you for your comments under my recent poll regarding comparing your characters to existing ones (you can find it here). It was actually surprisingly educational to see your opinions! I must admit that getting my stuff compared to other ideas used to be a little annoying gremlin of a pet peeve to me and used to make my blood boil a little. But reading your comments I got a huge spectrum of various points of view on this topic and it surely helped me to get some more healthy approach to it. Though as a human I think it will take some practice and patience to get used to it, I think it was a very interesting experience and surely let me help understand more people's intentions and which part of this kind comparison comments was making them so irking to me. So thanks a lot guys!


2015 plans


        With new year come new plans and I hope 2015 to be a busy year for me and also thanks to this maybe a bit more interesting for you too! First of all I'm planning to make a Patreon, hopefully by the spring with lots of exclusive stuff prepared for my supporters like tutorials, collectible badges, wallpapers, PSD files, free requests and special commission slots. I hope to make it useful and entertaining same for my fellow artists who may want to discover my art techniques/tricks and see my art process from the backstage, as for regular enthusiasts of my art who like to get more of my regular fantasy/anime stuff and some guy on guy action. I hope the accumulated donations will let me focus more on my personal projects involving making my first prints (maybe bl calender?) and bl/yaoi one shots!

        By the end of last year I got a really awesome idea for my own adoptable series and I hope to start introducing it to you by March. I always had lots of love for fantasy designs and detailed, pretty outfits and I think it may be an interesting experience for all of us. The commissioned custom designs I had a chance to make so far and people appreciating my own OCs designs gave me the courage to try design some more for others. I hope it will come up well! Look up for it around March.

        Last but not least, by the end of this month I'm planning to make a special Valentine's event, open few Make it Quick! commission slots for people interested in getting art of their couple before Valentine's Day (for now MiQ! slots are closed) and just like last year make a Valentines raffle with some free stuff to win!



    I hope 2015 will be exciting for all of us! Thank you for your support for all previous years and lets do our best together to make this new year even more awesome!










I would like to announce that the 2014-2015 commissions season is officially open!


My name is Kodama. I am 24 years old and I love art.

From years of experience, I’ve managed to satisfy over a hundred customers and finished more than hundred drawings for private clients and small commercial projects alike. Together we can make your ideas come true.

I am a multimedia illustrator hailing from Poland in Europe. I have been involved in artwork, concepts and graphic projects for over 10 years. Working both private commissions and taking part in bigger projects, I can say without a doubt, it has been (and still is!) an exhilarating journey. Art, especially the visual medium, is what stimulates and motivates me as I continuously strive to improve myself.

For every piece of work I create, I pour a little bit of myself into it. It does not matter whether it is a single private order or part of a larger work; I always aim for my work to be unique.

This journal is only a small preview of prices and services I have to offer. All necessary information to commission me like Detailed description of commission types, Commissioning Process Guide, Waiting Lists and Terms of Service you will find at:

Hello Hello!


How are you guys? I write this journal because lately I'm receiving pretty much notes asking about commissions opening date and such and I thought it would be nice to give you some updates regarding what's going on and my to-do list.

As you possibly noticed, my profiles are going through makeover right now, I've been waiting with it for pretty long time and finally I have time to fix these things and make them more consistent.

New tumblr page.


Since the beginning of this month I am working really hard on preparing my new tumblr page, which I also plan to use as my art website. I learned a whole lot of absolutely fantastic new things about html and css in this very short time and I'm not afraid to use them to make the page as neat and pretty as possible. It will be the same old blog I use right now, the only thing that will change is the address and general layout. So the people who follow me on yaoi-world-desu already don't need to worry or change anything, it will be still the same blog.

Here's a small teaser of how it looks for now:




Commissions.


This time the whole commission information, prices and waiting lists will be presented directly on my website, in the section dedicated to it. In this way I hope to make the whole process more friendly for people who don't have account here on dA. This, and having a separate page for commissions allows for more freedom in presenting content than the small limited journal box.

The new commission page is basically ready, I still need to upload few more examples and fix texts like ToS, instructions and descriptions, but most of it is ready to go.

As soon as the page will be ready to go public, I'll announce it on both of my accounts, same as on my tumblr and other websites. After that there will be a one week long period before I'll start to accept waiting lists reservations, so everyone who's interested will have time to decide what to order and prepare all necessary information without any rush. The number of spots will be unlimited, just as it was in the past.

Weasyl and Facebook.



As a part of spreading my tentacles all over the glorious lands of the internet, I made two new accounts on Weasyl and Facebook. Weasyl as far as I know allows for uploading explicit works with possibility to choose the safety view if you don't want to see it, what is generally a big yes for me, this is the kind of freedom dA doesn't allow for and I certainly appreciate it. And everyone has facebook, so it's time to join the cool kids club.

The new accounts will be announced together together with website opening, so stay tuned!


To-do list.


Here's the  list of things I need to finish before opening commissions again (with  things I did already in meantime):

  • Finishing the last order from my old list
  • Designing and coding the new website
  • Preparing texts for the website
  • New commission info
  • Rewriting new tags under my tumblr posts (there's 600  posts there sob OTL AND IT'S HALF DONE)
  • dA profiles and galleries makeover
  • New icons
  • New journal skin
  • Twitter makeover
  • Y!Gallery makeover
  • Preparing Facebook / Weasyl pages


As you can see there was a lot of things going on in the backstage. I am not such lazy poo as I look :iconsopsplz:





Winners of the raffles!



Hello hello!

First of all I would like to thank everyone who partook in the lottery.  I am glad that so many of you liked the idea and decided to share few sweet words with your friends. I read some of your conversations in comment section and wow, some of them were so intense (like, really intense - wow guys get a room LOL OR  JUST MARRY HER ALREADY, GEEZ :icondumbledorenoplz:).

It took me a while to choose the winners, since there was a number of participants that wasn't viable for the lottery, either because of not fulfilling the primary rules (being my watcher; account has to be at least 2 months old) or not following the two mandatory steps (for example, comment under this journal). Which is a bit sad, but rules are rules and there's always next time!

In any case I finally managed to properly choose the random winners and here are the lucky three participants!

Congratulations!

This is not okay (about tracing)

Sun Dec 22, 2013, 11:17 AM
I just got a report from one observant and kind person about someone tracing of my picture. The picture I am talking about is this one <da:thumb id="360481991"/> and the traced thing is here <da:thumb id="421339890"/> and here <da:thumb id="421339614"/>  by spottedeyes120 (gyazo link gyazo.com/7bc2339de31ae99a43aa… and gyazo.com/22dc9731aaaee0346221… ). As I took a look into this person's gallery (who watches me here, so I'm sure they pretty much know where they took the picture from) and generally much of their stuff is traced as well.

This is kind of funny because few days ago I recieved another report about someone using this picture Yaoi ID: Wanna Join? by Yaoi-World for this <da:thumb id="287915315"/>  (gyazo link gyazo.com/168daa2efddfd7b4e0c8… ) and it makes me wonder if Christmas time is the time for people to become dicks or what?

I guess it's a great opportunity to bring once more the topic of tracing, making bases, re-posting pictures without credits, editing, "rendering" (please), cutting off the signature, drawing exactly same pictures form anime screencaps, claiming someone's art as yours, because all of these things are something I absolutely not approve. I do not give permissions for this kinds of actions including using my pictures and I don't find it as cute or flattering, but disrespectful and just rude. I never had much love for bases users and makers, there is really handful of people who make this thing right, means from zero without tracing from someone else pictures. DA for some crazy reason allows it, but it doesn't make it anyhow okay. And however someone would like to excuse this kind of actions by not knowing it was not right, not knowing the source of the picture, or even crediting the original artist (this isn't okay and just isn't enough as well if the artist didn't give you the right to use their art), for me this is just bunch of bullshit. It doesn't matter if the picture is popular. We are all equal creators of our works and no matter what, doing this kind of thing to anyone is just absolutely shitty.

I'm glad that some people like my art, or some of my poses, go ahead and draw your character in such if you like, I can't copyright how bodies are settled or the idea, yeah? Same as I don't complain when I see a picture with a stylization or color scheme or style uncannily similar to the way I do my things, it's not something I can restrict either. But if you do any of these things, do them by yourself, not by copying exactly what you see. Or by tracing. Or fucking anything including redrawing the exact shapes of the existing picture. There's a huge difference between inspiration and just copying and I know it may be pretty much a grey zone to decide where inspiration ends and copying starts, but at the end it will show, you know? And if you'll push inspiration too far or will try to kinda smuggle some part here, a bit of something there because WOW WHO WILL NOTICE THAT YEAH? they will notice and it will backfire at you in some really nasty way sooner or later. Because it shows and people really get this feeling that something's odd when someone just redraws lines without thinking and knowing what they're doing. Or when some parts of your picture looks just kinda different compared to the rest of the picture or to the rest of your gallery, it really does and even if people can't prove it or doesn't have time to report it or confront you doesn't mean that you're so very clever and no one noticed. It just means that you got some more time before you'll piss off someone for real.



UPDATE

Okay so I saw comments about how the second image can be not traced but "referenced" and I must say that it really puzzles me that someone may see it this way. I decided to make a small example of how the picture may look when someone uses some other picture as reference and why the second picture is traced, even if edited more than the first one. I let myself to use my "Wanna Join" picture as reference for a quick sketch. I was extreme to the point where I didn't only use the exactly same pose, but also used the exactly same characters, tried to use the same shading way (though this one is fully digital) and colors and believe me or not but I even simulated the original artist's style *WOW SHOCKER LOL* so generally the picture should be the exact same copy of my picture, right? But it isn't:

Much Referenced Very Wow by Yaoi-World


It is of course similar yeah? Because wow that's what I was aiming for, but at the end none of the lines is traced or drawn over (these are the same thing for me??). They are settled in the same position with the same expressions with the same characteristics and still the picture is made from zero and the shapes of some parts, the distance, the lines are different in both of them making it instantly more original than this one

This Is Not Funny This Is Serious Business by Yaoi-World

I hope you see the difference now and will stop finding excuses for tracing anything anyhow, because I feel like I'm losing my faith in humanity and I don't think it's a good thing to do especially around the Christmas time LOL. I'm sorry if I look pretty harsh (or rather sassy :iconpapmingplz:) but the whole tracing thing really pisses me off to no end. And no guys, there isn't really a place for "and if they do it they should at least credit" or "If they will tell me to take it down, I'll take it down" No. They shouldn't even consider doing it at all in the very first place without the official agreement from the picture's authors/owners no matter who they are. If you can't get in contact with them because of reasons and get such thing, you just don't do it at all. :iconcoolplz:

What's new in Yaoi-World

Mon Jan 21, 2013, 6:48 AM
LOL because dA doesn't have an option to organize journals in my own order, I'm gonna use this old one and change it for a news journal because I want to have a commission journal all time on top.

So, I just wanted to make a small summary of what is going on in my small artistic and personal life lately, because there are few pretty cool news and I thought it would be nice to share them with you guys!

Illustrated boys love novel

First of all, a while ago I started my work for an artist called SawyerLoki. She's a writer but as I saw she also draws her own stuff. Eiri works on a boys love novel which she's planning to publish and since pretty wide part of the story will be heavily illustrated, she chose me to be the artist who will put her ideas on paper. It's a pretty big project and for now we passed the stage of illustrating character's designs (such a bunch of sexy guys, I tell ya :iconyodawgplz:) and I'm about to start working on a cover picture in next few days. I'm really excited for this cooperation since illustrating books was always some kind of small wish of mine and you know, it's a pretty nice step forward! I'll inform you about the progress and any news according the book!


My art print on incoming Kickstarter project

On the other note viralremix is working her kickstarter project (which supposed to run around November - December)  of her RP and art related webpage and hired me to make a  print design as one of the backer rewards! viralremix works on turning her fantastic RP group :iconotherworlde: into a website based around RPing and art stuff. I've never saw such thing, not saying about such a huge commitment and honestly it's another thing what makes me super excited. I'm sketching the picture right now, working hard to make sure that it will totally blow your mind! I'll keep you informed about progress of this project as well!


Reize in Valdis Story

Speaking of kickstarter, Seizui just sent me a note with a fantastic news. His amazing character, Reize, is in a video game now and he is considered one of the most useful assist characters in-game! The game we're talking about is called Valdis Story and was one of the successful projects from Kickstarter.   I worked for Seizui many times illustrating parts of Reize's history and such, you can find these works here:


Commission: Reize Seatlan by KodamaCreative Commission Reize Seatlan by KodamaCreative We walk the same path by KodamaCreative KingdomHearts!Reize - Nomura's style fun by KodamaCreative   Commission: First Boss Battle by KodamaCreative Bestowing of the Pendant by KodamaCreative Commission: Unknown Mother by KodamaCreative   Annoyed Father by KodamaCreative Story Time by KodamaCreative First Teachings of Hunting by KodamaCreative Commission : A Hero's Worth by KodamaCreative Commission: Proving Grounds by KodamaCreative   Commission: Reize and The Black Beast by KodamaCreative Commission: Reize Seatlan 2 by KodamaCreative

Reize is really dear to me, i feel like his aunt hahaha and again I absolutely respect Seizui for such a commitment and skill of creating such well designed story and character. It's really amazing to see this baby in a game, especially that I remember like yesterday that we talked with Seizui about how cool it would be to make a game about him. Well it surely is a nice step forward, good job Seizui!

To see Reize in action check out the gameplay links from Valdis Story:

LOL I got le daily deviation

Tue Nov 27, 2012, 1:22 AM
...on my newest picture "I am the Plague". I had to write le journal about it, because everyone does it, so I don't wanna be worse HURRR



It wasn't suggested by anyone (thanks guys, I see how it is :iconthatsgreatplz: LOL) They even wrote something, like, "I am the Plague by *Yaoi-World is an atmospheric piece with good composition and appealingly sketchy line work. "  appealingly sketchy line work, that's right baby, tell me moar :iconshewantsyouplz:


Apparently, when you get a DD you are not notified about it. If I wouldn't be vain and wouldn't click this picture to check how much views it got LOL  (don't look at me like that, I know you do the same :iconbitchpleaseplz:) I wouldn't even know that it's there. So you know guys, it's good to check your EVERY. SINGLE. PICTURE. once for a while to see if there isn't any hidden daily deviation there.


And generally I don't feel so excited about it as I should I guess. I mean, looking at the level and number of daily deviations chosen everyday nowadays, I find it more as a matter of luck / good friends, suggesting your work, than a determinant of a good picture. Not saying that I really don't trust community volunteer's taste, professionalism and objectivity. And of course no one of us can be objective, we all have our own tastes, but there should be some universal standard's level and well, not all Daily Deviations nowadays reach this level.

BUT THAT'S ONLY MY OPINION, I'M JUST TOO HIPSTER TO BE SIMPLY HAPPY OF GETTING DD OKAY? :iconcryforeverplz:

Home!

Fri Nov 23, 2012, 3:02 AM
Yes, I am back home. I hope this time it will be longer than one week before I/'ll get back there LOL. Two previous times when Igot back home from hospital, I stayed home for a week then I had to go back there because the pain and fever and all this shit came back. I hope this time I will stay home FOREVER (I mean, in next month I have to go back there for control tests and then I will have to go back there for like 4 days so they could take off the tube from my insides LOL I'm a cyborg I have artificial parts inside). When I was in hospital I tried to draaaaw to not forget how to do it completely, I finished few unfinished pictures, so I'll color them and soon finally upload new shit on my both accounts (this one and the KodamaCreative one). Also I'll try to answer on the most of the comments, thank you for so much warm, lovely words on my previous journals, for all wishes, you are all very lovely and I'm really not worthy to have so amazing watchers, friends and fans.

From other news, I lost another 5 kilo in last 3 weeks, so, counting all the kilos I lost since my hospital adventure started, means last 2 months, I lost 18 kilo (it's 39lb). And my clothes... my clothes doesn't fit anymore :iconcryforeverplz: *FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS*

And at the end, le random bonus. When I was placing my hospital papers in the box for "important papers" I found there this photo:

Dancing Queeeeen, young and sweet, only four years olddd


So this is me in my fucking fabulous outfit, age around 4, dancing with my fucking cool dad, smoking cigarette and wearing a
makeshift apron made of kitchen cloth, probably cooking some dinner and taking a break to dance with his baby to the rhythm of some 80' pop song, maybe Modern Talking. HOW COOL IS THAT?! (Honeybbu I can see Cross doing it LOL)

What new.

Sun Nov 18, 2012, 6:19 AM
So, since 26 October I'm back in hospital, third time in last two months. I know it's getting boring for you, I have honestly enough of this as well. I have no idea how long they will keep me here this time, but I think it will be much longer than previous time. My organism seems to be stupid pussy and it doesn't want to cooperate with me, asshole. I don't have anything new to say about my activity. I won't be able to work on commissions and other pictures till I'll leave. Not saying about recovering to strenth. Currently making 200 meters on hospital's hallway makes me tired like after 10 minutes of running. And I walk in turtle pace.

It's dissapointing, I know. I wish to get back home, fully healthy not worrying about anything at all. And I know that for pretty long time it won't be possible. For now I was lucky enough to avoid any surgeries, even if they planned to cut me several times. For now antibiotics works, I started to eat two days ago, after three weeks of being feed by special drips going  into my vein. Aaand that's all. I dont answer for notes and comments because on my phone its extremely annoying and slow. When I'll get back home, I'll tell you about it asap.
