EDIT
Hello, here is a little update.

So as you can see I'm being slow (incredibly so, uh) with the work. I just had to admit to myself that I just don't have time for commissions anymore. Not with my fulltime job, my daily life AND my stories on top of that...

So commissioned are closed for who knows how long and I will have to find other ways to get extra support (more about that later).
I'm a bit upset about it because it's always exciting to go with all the fun requests (this time wasn't an exception either, LOVE the tasks I was given :hug:)
I will finish the ones I already accepted of course. Luckily when they will be all paid, I will be very close to the 500$ goal but can't stretch myself any further no matter what.
Luckily my tablet issue got solved meanwhile and hopefully my laptop issues will be soon as well *crosses fingers*. This money will go to put back where I borrowed to buy teh tablet.

Thank you for being so patient with me, I'm terribly sorry for the delay!

/EDIT

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

Commissions are open until I reach 500$ ;)

So here is the journal as promised. :dummy:
In short: I'm raising founds to be able to buy a new tablet instead of my broken one. The goal is 500 USD. Commissions will be closed for now after I reach it. But no worries, I need a proper laptop as well so... probably open soon - with digital added as an option that time.
You can also support me by buying prints, ipod cases and stuff on Society6 (free shipping until Sept 14th) or Redbubble. Feel free to suggest arts from my gallery what you'd like to see there (except for commissions of course). ^^

Hello guys! =3

Since my last journal quite a lot of things had happened. I have a computer now but it's quite unstable as it is so I will have to buy a laptop eventually (any experiences about trades and strenght? It'd be a great help. thank you!)

Then I got ill during my "vacation" (which, frankly, was quite stressful for me anyway). i was laying for weeks. I'm still not fully recovered but doing welll enough. ^^
School started too and as a mommy I'm busy till late evenings after work.
But the main thing that affects my art possibilities a LOT is that I had to give back the tablet I was lent by my employers when mine broke down. I'm tabletless now. And though I'm not a digital artist only, it still limits my options greatly so I want to buy a new one a.s.a.p. The one I want is a Wacom Intuos Pro (medium) and it's 500$ in my country. So I will open emergency commissions in traditional cathegory soon (which also will mean black and white, I don't take aquarell, but monochrome brushmarkers is an option.) It won't come with discount this time (sorry XP), but it also means I won't have rectrictions either. =)
Keep an eye on it, I'll most likely announce it sometime next week, once I organize my life a bit. ^^;

See you seen, have a great weekend and keep going everybody! Thanks for your patient and relentless interest in my art. :D

Unexpected

Unexpectedly my computer had a breakdown and it refuses to work. So now I don't have tools for digital art and I can't scan my traditional. I also do not have internet access easily, especially not on next week when I'm away on holiday. So I just let you know that I'm not available for some while (possibly this whole month). But I'm not being idle meanwhile, you'll see once I have my tools to show it. ^^
Enjoy the summer~ :dummy:

Daily Life and Art Update =)

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 14, 2014, 2:04 PM


Hello guys!

I hope your summer is going well, having a great time, vacation and all! =)
Here is a little update on me since I'm continuing to be away still.

Personal bits

I'm doing okay, graduated with grade 5 (meaning A in the US system). It was a translation, I'd like to go on to translate that book when 'Ill have more time (but September the latest).

My father had serious medical issues, he's been in hospital on and off for months but maybe he is over of the worst now. It was the main reason why I was away btw, I didn't have time and energy to communicate. I'm still behind my things, on DA I have 1500 deviations now, 69 journals, 46 replies and 2 notes to check. Sorry about that, I'm afraid I'm still not there yet.

Art & Profession

Job
I'm working for Kiloo company (Subway Surfurs game for example) on one of their new projects, the Giving Tales. I can't give you more info yet since the website is not yet up, probably takes a few months until we will have enough to announce it but I like it more and more with every passing day. ^^
I was also offered to do a series of illustration for children's book, something I did character designs for last summer or sth and I'm very tempted to say yes but we'll see about that. I'm REALLY busy. It's just that children's books is my soft spot. ungh. >,<

Comics
  • I started to work on three. One is a short oneshot for the 5Panels team, I'm inking it at the moment. A bit slowly but surely, hehe.


  • The next one going to be an Age of Phoenix oneshot about the young Kuroneko. I have this concept for like 2 years now but never got around to finish it.


  • The 3rd is the Prey & Hunter story. It is a longer oneshot. I have the storyline, gonna start to script while I'm working on the Age of Phoenix one.

Commissions
I was asked a few times about that but I don't think I will take commissions for a long long while. I'm far too occupied with my job, daily life and my own projects. I'm sorry.
Besides I still have a few to finish and some that was just promised for some dear returning clients of mine. Some that I told I would do once I'll have some more time. :)

Arttrades
I'd love to do some that I agreed to do with friends ages ago but I still don't have the time yet.
Oh well, sooner or later I'll get there eventually, don't give up on me, please. :)

All in all, I'm good, a bit stressed from time to time but otherwise content with my life. I just wish I'd have more time to spend with friends and communicate with others or just do art for my own self. But it's okay, I have my plans, I'll work it out. ^^

Anyway, I wish you all great time and more freetime than I have!
:hug:

New job, College and Stuff...

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 26, 2014, 2:56 AM
5Panels l tumblr l society6 l Redbubble l Note Me

Hello,
it's been a while again so I thought some status update would be nice.

First of all I would like to thank you for all the new favs, comments and watches I got recently considering my inactivity. I'm really flattered by the trust you put into me, thank you! *////*

Well I got an art job from the Kiloo company (might be familiar from the Subway Surfers app). No, not video games, it is a new project they just started, an e-book kids' tale series of Andersen, read by famous British actors/actresses with cooperation of the Unicef (1/3 of the income goes to them, wow). The studio and the website is not up yet but this branch will be called Giving Tales. I will talk about it later. I won't be able to share anything until it's done and it occupies majority of my free time for now, that's why I'm so passive online. Some changes will be in June when I hopefully get some time at the weekends? (not sure yet).

Another thing is my college degree. I've been working on it since 2013 November and now I submitted it. Waiting and studying for the final exams (in June again).

I'm a bit "fragmented" recently, concentrating too many things at the same time so I'm tired by the end of the days. With the new, awesome intuos 4 I was lent, there is a new problem too (or it was just too much work but it doesn't seem "too much" for me really) but somehow just in a few days it strained my shoulder and wrist (it shoudln't be carpal tunnel or what but it's in constant pain anyway) but I try to give it a rest so another reason why I don't answer lately. Sorry. =(

There is one thing I still try to keep up with but can't really, it's the 1000 sketches challange. It is to push myself to work on my story harder (studies and story related art counts) and there is a reward in the end (a laptop). You can follow the progress on tumblr, here, if you are  interested. I'm at 278 at the moment but I'm gonna update later today with a few more I got lately.

Things will be probably the same until the end of June but I let you know when there is a change. Thank you for your patience.:hug:

February Update (commission related and thank you)

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 17, 2014, 6:18 AM



Hello everybody,

for me it feels liek ages since my last journal, I'm still superbusy (nothing new in there).

I'd like to thank you for everybody for keeping up with me, and the patience because my answers takes longer than ever. Thank you for the favourites and new watches as well, despite me being a little inactive here. THANK YOU ALL! I do appreciate it. :hug:

Also thank you for all the people who commissioned me last time when I needed it the most, it was really a life-saver! :tighthug:
I'm kind of done now, the remaining piece needs some info yet from Gustyfoxy. And I also owe her to finish another, older piece, namely Spring from the Yukihime-season series, it is my next priority. When I'm done with this twp pictures I will consider to open commissions again but it depends on my circumstances as well. I applied to a studio, if they hire me it is possible that I won't have time for it.
Which would be really a pity because over and over I realize how much I enjoy these personal commissions, they are great fun, gives me variety on tasks and let me interact with nice people. It's really fun! So sooner or later I most likely open anyway. :D

January Update

Well I'm back to buissness again. Nope, I didn't get my comic down in the end and I have to put it aside again for my sorrow. =(
But I did get to meet some friends during the holidays and for ONCE I did have 2-3 days complete OFF, away from the net and any kind of worries. God, it felt awesome! *__*

Btw, is there anybody out there who is excited about the Sherlock series, the BBC one? I started to watch it a month ago but man, I'm really head over heels for it - the story, the conversations the characters and actors - even the side characters - are all AMAZING. :heart:

Anyway, here is my current commission list, I'm going to keep this updated. =)

Happy Holidays

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 23, 2013, 2:09 PM
Hey there, =)

originally I wished to say this in comic form but I seem to be late with my comics lately (sadly they have a shamefully low status in my priority list right now u_u).

Now first of all let me thank to that anonymus person who bought me a year of Premium Membership on DA - thank you very much!!!! *////*
I really like using thumbs and journal skins so I do really appreciate it! Thank you! X3 :heart:


I just want to say that I will be less active (in communication) but I guess it is only natural at this time of the year. (I just really wish if Christmas would be about being in PEACE with the ones you love instead of more obligatories and business, meh).

The commissions are put on hold until the holidays are over because I will be really occupied, I'm sorry.

But my hard work paid of because I made a good progress on my graduation work (Japanese translation) which allows me to deal with more personal things soon - hopefully. Like working on my own comics some more (yaaaaaay!). I have 6 pages done of 10 of the Christmas comic I was planning since November, I'm just sooo impatient to share it, yet I have to suppress the urge and keep it for myself until it's done, not to spoil the party. >,<

Anyway, for Christmas, I really wish everybody a cozy time at a warm home in the company of loving people! Hug

Commission Discount (CLOSED)

Fri Nov 15, 2013, 1:17 PM
***UPDATE 2***
Thank you very much for everybody! I'm really happy about all the fun tasks I got from all of you! :hug:
There are a few more people who already contacted me just haven't paid yet, they will be added to the list in the order of the payment.
And I am working on the pictures bit by bit but I'm doing multitasking on the max so I ask for your patience. Thank you very much! =)

Now commissions are closed for an uncertain of time. It depends on many things when or IF I open it again (like possible full time job). And first of all I just finish these ones anyway. ^^

Thank you again, it was really a GREAT help when I needed it the most! ='3


***UPDATE 1***

After this session is closed I will close commissions completely for an uncertain time. First of all time is needed to finish the ones I accepted, but also I will need to concentrate on other things for a while.
Thank you for everybody who support me with commissions, nice words or in any other way! I do really appreciate it! :hug:

Daily life rambling
I study 1,5-2 hours in the morning to get my Japanese/Buddhist college degree, I work with my dad around the house until noon,then try to work on pictures, fetch my son in the afternoon, study with him, play with him, watch movie (or read to him),  and work on pictures in the evenings. Meanwhile do the housework (I'm horribly lazy though XD; ), do extra errands every now and then and shopping ect. Yeah, living the life of an avarage housewife, I guess. XD;
Dunno how some standalone mothers do that when they have a full-time job even, they must have a time-machine or sth. <_<
Anyway please forgive me that I spend little time on DA (and on the net in general). But I do appreciate a lot all the lovely comments, favs and all the support! ^^
I'll try to catch up once this crazy period will sooth down somewhat. :)

    I will also colour 2 shorts for :iconkarinamacgill: and :iconcobayanigiri:. And will make another comic with a friend for the website, too. I have the feeling I will be able to share THAT one at least. =)


I think that's it. And life keeps smothering us but these commissions are a lot of help to deal with the financial aspects at least so thank you again for everybody who trust me to do a good job for their money. It makes me truely happy! = ')

September update =)

Hello everyone,

I'm still not on my top-energy level, but I'm defenitely doing better and better day by day.
Life is stressful and getting harder every day here (like in a ridiculous level) but I'm happy for the jobs I can work on still! :la:
Seriously, it means me a LOT that you trust me with these works and it's really a great support right now! Thank you! :thanks:

It would be nice to work more on my own personal projects (especially Age of Phoenix) and do some short comics but doesn't look like I can for a while yet. *sigh*
I'm still doing pictures, scripts and sketches at least. ^^

On a complete side note I'm REALLY excited about the "Defenders of Berk" series coming out next week. I just finished the first series with my son a few days ago and I couldn't belive what a cliffhanger ending it had - ahhh!
And the HTTYD ost makes me unreasonably happy for some reason. XD;

Commission Special and other stuff

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 3, 2013, 6:28 AM
Etsy l Facebook l tumblr l 5 Panels

HEADSUP
    Hey, it's been a while. =) Remember my last journal about the 24 hours comic? Well I did it and I have no regrets but I've got some nasty coughing stuff right the next day when my lack of sleep and weakened immune system kicked in. And I fail to recover ever since, it's really not like me. = ( But this is the reason behind the late with updates and the lack of communication. I'm sorry about that!


COMMISSION

    I've been meaning to do this for more than a month now but my bad health kept me from it, but I just can't delay any longer. As a supporter of the family I either find a job asap or gain enough from artistic quests. So commissions are open once more for now. But once I'll get a job I will close it for an uncertain time of period for I will need my spare time and energy to work on my beloved stories and personal projects. ^^ So if you ever thought about commissioning me, now it's the right time to do it because otherwise you may won't have the chance for who knows how long. ;) DETAILS: pagodacomics.deviantart.com/jo…
    Note me or write me to pagodacomics@gmail.com


PORTRAIT special for 7$/character :new:
    Since I had so much fun with the manga portraits on Holdfénycon I figured I release it here too for the fun. Request yourself as an orc, elf, shoujo princess, badass elfwarrior, demon, your favourite cartoon character or whatever you can imagine. :dummy: All I need is a picture of you (or your friend if it's a gift) and a description or reference of what you may would like to see. =) Size: A5 COMMISSION - Manga-portrait by PagodaComics  Elf Portrait for Asharinhun by PagodaComics More examples HERE: witchash.tumblr.com/post/52069…

Soon you'll get some actual artistical updates too but I have to go into stupid offices to get down stupid paperwork to get stupid health insurance for my stupid health, dammit! >,<

Doing 24 hours comic, starts right now~ [OVER]

Journal Entry: Sun May 19, 2013, 4:10 AM
Hellooooo~

I was at HoldfényCon  with :diconkarinamacgill: yesterday, a convention for fantasy, anime fans and gamers, we drew manga-portraits (and added our own style to it so it wasn't that manga-ish in the end XD) and had a great time. I will talk about it later some more and show some picts. ^^

But coming back home today I suddenly REAAALY wanted to draw that European 24 hour challange that had an interesting theme, namely every page must be a time of daymonth/year (whatever you wish), the first page must be a cover (two in one) and the last page must have the final world "the end".
It's been bugging me for a long while now and I haven't drawn comics with my Age of Phoenix characters for AGES and miss it badly. Best opportunity that I have 2 days off (almost)! :la:

Time starts NOW~

I will post wips on my tumblr (when I'll have some): witchash.tumblr.com/
I wonder hwow far I will can go with it. ^^


***Edit***
Fun time is over. I got down 17 roughly sketched pages but I enjoyed it a lot. I also learnt about how to utilize my skills and times better so I'm happy now. Once I finish the comic, I'll release it here. Until that if you are interested a bit in the Age of Phoenix story a bit then here you can see the result: witchash.tumblr.com/search/24+…

Elkészült végre a szintén Pady08 által írt, cobayanigiri által illusztrált és szerkesztett 24 oldalas manga, A munka gyümölcse, amely egy illegális agárverseny körül bonyolódik. 5panels.kepregeny.net/2013/05/…

ENGLISH

The 5Panels team will publish two new comics for the upcoming 9th International Comics Festival of Budapest, on May 12nd. One of them is the third book of our series with those fluffy creatures with fangs and horns and magic abilities, called busó ("booshoh"). The second comics is a short manga about an illegal grey hound race. Besides publishing, we also set up a comics creator camp in the summer where participants learn about making comics while creating a short one with the help of our team members.

Comics, MondoCon, Updates

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 8, 2013, 7:40 AM


Allright here are some updtaes that i meant to tell you for some while already.

:bulletblue: Comics on my SmackJeeves:
    - Tales of Toys UPLOADED 1st chapter: talesoftoys.smackjeeves.com/co… To be honest recently I reconsidered the story and decided to modify it somewhat. And for what I aim for I'll have to colour it and redo the first chapter. The story itself still remains the same but I need to fix some things if I want to make it as a publishable, well-done series. And it will be mainly for kids. this probably won't stop adults from enjoying it (I hope so). If you like tales in general then I hope you'll enjoy. =) - Archers-UPLOADED 1st chapter: archers.smackjeeves.com/comics… Sorry but no more comes. I've been told that it's rather confusing and I understand why. The teamwork wasn't the smoothest with the author and it was supposed to be a "teaser" for a book in the first place. I guess it IS a teaser this way. =( Right now I can't work on it anymore unless we manage to found it but it doesn't look like we can. So that is on a hold.

Btw remember that i said I'm going to update page by page on Tapastic and full chapters on  a href=" www.smackjeeves.com/profile.ph…">SmackJeeves? Well it won't work. It seems my comics doesn't really work well on Tapastic in the first place. That is really designed for web surface with elongated panels, with no space between pages while my comics are designed for traditional reading. Their update system is also works the opposite way. While you get pagely notifications on SmackJeeves, Tapastic only warns subscribers when a new chapter is added but won't if a chapter is modified.
So I guess in the end it's better to pagely update on SmackJeeves and add full chapters on Tapastic (and need solutions for specific problems like the lack of space between individual pages and the limited page width what prevents me from adding double pages which I REALLY like doing).

:bulletblue:  MondoCon
    I went to the MondoCon at the weekend. Well my attendance was a complete mess, nothing turned out how it was supposed to be: I couldn't meet my friends, my picture didn't arrive by the deadline at the contest, I didn't get a free ticket since people who originally called me to help me didn't need it eventually (but I only got to know it last minute) and there was absolutely NO PROGRAM that day what I was interested in. And I even left home my pencase where I had put specific tools with me so I could had worked on an urgent project - you who draw just can imagine how FRUSTRATING it is.... It was sooo frustrating that it was actually funny, i was facepalming myself and laughing - honestly. XD; Yet in the end things turned out kinda well. All the negative things lead to something good. Since I had no tools I decided to attend the workshop and picked a Sakura Micron to work with (and possesively latched into it the whole time XD). And while working on my pages people around got interested in my pictures and I ended up giving critiques and selling a few postcards and mini-notebooks I created the night before (when it seemed I still can sell sth). So in the end it covered my ticket at least and some people asked for my FaceBook even, plus I could go on with my works. :3 And I heard that I got 2nd place on the CG contest with this pict YEY (just dunno how I get it back plus mah prize~) Sadako and Kuroneko by PagodaComics


:bulletblue:  Commissions are on hold until May
    Sorry I'm too busy with other things and first want to finish what I have right now. Current work list
  • :icongustyfoxy: - autumn Yukihime :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty:
  • Christopher LaHaise - Ame no Uzume :star-empty: :star-empty: :star-empty:
  • PaperDemon - 3 animation backgrounds :star: :star-empty: :star-empty:



:bulletblue:  Etsy
    As mentioned I created some mini notebooks that I'll also sell on Etsy but they are in experimental phase yet. Plus I have a REALLY sucky camera so I have hard time with making good-looking pictures of them. =/


And as always: thank you for the favs, watches and comments. i always read them and eventually answer. ^^
My watchlist is kinda busted though, I saw I have 34 unread journals and over 300 deviation. >,<
Anyway, I'll be probably silent for the rest of the month (unless sth unforseen happens) because of a project deadline. But from time to time I really need to talk or else I go crazy. XD;
