Heya everyone! I took a bit of time to myself to try and come to terms with a few things going on.

I feel a lot more relaxed after not stressing myself out over internet business and all.

I wanted to let everyone know that I'm going to be working on trades tonight! I also wanted to apologize (again) for not responding very much to messages here I get overwhelmed VERY easily with things like this so if you get a reply from me in like A MONTH OR SO I am so sorry for being late.

You may also notice I am bad about answering notes but I am going to attempt to change that haha...


Small general life update; I've had a lot of issues sleeping on time lately. I'm stuck at home all the time right now so it's hard to stick to any sort of schedule. For example I got up at 1AM today; stayed up til 10AM and then slept til like 3:30PM and I don't even know what my night is going to look like tonight. BUT I am definitely going to get some art in so I'll update you guys with that soon!

Hope everyone is well!

Not so great news to share. I've been pretty absent as my cat Penny passed away a few days ago. She meant the world to me (and still does) and I am kind of in a state of shock and disbelief. It's been very difficult to gather any energy to do anything.

I've got four trades left to do but I'll likely take a bit longer. Sorry for the wait.

Don't worry I'm not going to update my journal here very often; I just figured I'd let you all know what's going on a bit.

Tomorrow is my Birthday! I actually completely forgot until Mom reminded me. I'll be 27.

I don't really have anything planned for tomorrow; low-key birthdays are perfectly fine with me though.

I mainly wanted to say that I'm getting through trades at a pretty good pace! I only have four to go and I took a break to finish up some commissions and personal art so I feel pretty good about where I am with those.

With all that's going on too I wanted to say a little something; I'm wishing all of you well especially if you're going through a hard time and if you ever need to talk to someone or vent you can always send me a message here. I don't bite!

I think that's all I wanted to say but of course I'll think of something else as soon as I post this haha.

Be well everyone!

Hey everyone! I'm sorry for being so untalkative and standoffish for a long time now. I try not to spam people with journals but then they become so few and far between people probably start wondering if I'm ignoring them.

I just wanted to give a small update on a few art related things.

My outstanding trades are almost finished! So if we're doing a trade and you've yet to receive your half I have only four left to do.

You can check out this journal:  Closed for now thanksThat's all the trades I can take right now!
Leaving the refs up.

to see all the trades finished so far.

I've gotten to a point to where I am very pleased with some parts of my art and incredibly displeased with others. As it goes I suppose? But I really want to keep pushing myself forward and working through any insecurities I have in art.

You might notice I have been redoing a lot of old sketches lately or I guess you could say I am simply finishing them; adding inks and color. I'm doing this to try and give myself a morale boost. When I look at these revamped images I feel pretty pleased with myself with how far I've come. I am much more patient with linework now and I have developed SO many new techniques lately; it's a nice feeling!


Lately I wanted to apologize for taking so ungodly long to reply to comments. I want everyone to know that I read EVERYTHING and I appreciate EVERYTHING I just get a little absent minded when it comes to actually replying. So if you get an answer from me months after you commented that's why haha...

That's all with me for now!

How are you guys holding up?

I'm feeling a little better and getting back into the art vibe so I'll be working on trades again real soon. Hoping to finish up at least two tonight.

Also I have changed up my commission prices so I am not actually ripping myself off. You can check out my pricelist here and I am open!

It's going to take me awhile to sort through some negative real life stuff before I feel good enough to finish these with any amount of quality.

So it'll take longer for me to get to the rest of the trades.

I hate using the term ‘emergency commission’ but home repairs ATE ALL OF MY CHECK this month and I would like to be able to get something for Thanksgiving.

Would anyone be interested in a quick commission for $25? I can do a quick painting or refined flat sketch.

Something like this:
Commission KibugamiKenzo by spiralofvertigo

Would cost more but we can figure out a price.

Something along these lines:

Ocean Lurker by spiralofvertigo

AlienAlfredo Commission by spiralofvertigo

I’d be willing to do for $25.

I need at least half of the payment up front but if I get a bite I’ll be hunkering down and finishing it up tonight.

Message me here or email me at zenmekir@gmail.com if you’re interested!

Really appreciate it if anyone would spread the word too!

Thanks. <3

Sugar coating some personal home life stuff that I’m going through right now doesn’t make it any easier to swallow; or at the very least, grinding it up into a fine powder to snort won’t make me anymore numb about it

BUT

I’m trying to hang in there; the best I know how. I hit a bit of a breaking point tonight and had the biggest existential crisis of my life but getting off this wild ride isn’t exactly my agenda.

I have a feeling most people are having a pretty shit time right now too but all this political bullshit doesn’t pair well with what I’m going through at home.

I’m…going to bed and I’m going to pray that I actually sleep this time and don’t wake up not able to breathe because where’s the fun in that?

So I have a REQUEST for those that see this; and I’ve asked this many times before, send me stuff to distract me.

I’m really needing some music; so maybe just toss me your favorite tunes or maybe some you’d think I’d like! (I listen to anything I’m not too picky)

Toss me messages about some good stuff that’s going on with you or the world or anything just..positive.

I hate showing weakness especially to those I see as friends but just; I’ll leave you with this:

whew

Heya! I figured I’d put this offer up.

I’m really getting back into traditional art again because of Inktober but my art supply..supply is wearing pretty thin.

So I figured I would offer up some commissions in exchange for art supplies. They can be pre owned as long as they are still usable!

I’m mainly looking for pens and markers but you can let me know what you have!

I’d be happy to draw up something traditional for you if you’d like and you can see some examples here of my inktober drawings:

Inktober Black Shuck by spiralofvertigo

Inktober Werewolf by spiralofvertigo

Inktober Raven by spiralofvertigo

Inktober Wereboar by spiralofvertigo

Inktober Trei by spiralofvertigo

Inktober Were Crow by spiralofvertigo

Just keep in mind if you want something done traditionally I’m not going to have the colors for your characters so expect it to be a bit stylized color wise and or grayscale.

Feel free to email me at: zenmekir@gmail.com or send me a message here! Thanks!

I just now noticed that I never update my journal here anymore. Sorry for leaving anyone interested in what's going on in the dark; I'm just a lot more active on my tumblr. chilopodacrudus.tumblr.com/

So I have swimmer's ear right now and for anyone that is unfamiliar just picture the pain of an extremely rotten toothache but deep deep in your ear canal.

This is legitimately the worst pain I have ever felt in my life and I have gotten roughed up in my time. I'm normally good with pain but this has actually made me sick to my stomach a few times it flared up so much.

So because of this I am extremely sleep deprived and feeling pretty low; I could do for some cheering up.

I love it when people share what makes them happy; so if you'd like I'd love it if you guys sent me some of your favorite music, photos of your pets or just photos or images or videos that make you feel better.

This on top of the regular medical issues I go through on a daily basis is getting pretty underwhelming; so feel free to share with me anything you'd like!

My air conditioning has kicked the bucket. The motor is completely dead so we have to get that replaced. Thankfully my cousin is looking into it BUT..and here’s where it gets good; we had a bit of a mishap with our bank account.

We were transferring money to a new online bank and the transaction happened TWICE putting us into a nice sum of -$300. All of our money is in the online account which we don’t have access to at the moment because our new debit card hasn’t gotten here yet so..no way to pay dear cousin for the motor right now.

I do not like labeling things as ‘emergency’ or what not I don’t want people to feel like they absolutely have to help; it’s just if you ever wanted a commission from me or art in general or what not now would be a good time to get on that.

I am NOT taking donations I would feel absolutely terrible and stressed if people did that so here’s some options:

Sketch: $15

Specify traditional or digital. I will NOT be able to ship the original copies of the traditional commissions as we are also having car trouble haha.

Examples:

(there’s blood in this one) chilopodacrudus.tumblr.com/ima…

chilopodacrudus.tumblr.com/ima…


Colored sketch: $25

There’ll probably be a bit of shading on these.

I can draw pretty much anything you want me to draw except most fetishes; please ask first.

I am okay with drawing nudity but nothing more extreme than that right now.

Please contact me here if you’re interested!

Spreading this around is very appreciated; thanks!

Heya! I'm opening up for a few commissions in pay what you want style.

How this works is; we decide on a price that fits your budget before I start the commission. I take HALF of the payment upfront and half when your commission is completed.

I only take paypal.
I DO NOT TAKE POINTS.
I am not looking for trades right now.



Looking to take some in this style:

Cacchang Trade Panini Griff by spiralofvertigo
Commission KibugamiKenzo by spiralofvertigo
Chande by spiralofvertigo

The more you pay the more I'll work on rendering out those little details.

I'll draw any kind of creature from monster to human. Only super simple backgrounds at this time.

Please comment here or send me a note if you are interested!

Here’s something fun I thought I might try.

The first one that can correctly answer two questions about me gets a free drawing. How finished that drawing gets depends on my motivation at the time but it will at LEAST be a full body polished sketch.

You have to answer BOTH correctly but if no one can answer both and someone gets one right I’ll let them have it.

Alright!

1. What is my favorite color?

2. Who was my first crush as a kid?

We have a winner!

:iconfaullyn: THAT WAS FUN.


I gave them a second chance on the color in a note so the answers are: Green and Bowser.

I have a new tablet and it's a lot different than my old one. I feel like I have a HUNDRED times more control with it and I want to test it out!

So I'm opening pay what you want commissions with a large bias towards people that would like to get something in color.

Things I take in exchange for art are:
Paypal payments
Model kits
Action figures
Video Games (steam or physical games. Systems I have are SNES; N64, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, PSP, PS Vita, and any PC games would be cool)

I NEVER want you to send your item out before I finish your drawing though! Also only half payment up front; rest of the payment comes when I finish your commission if you are sending money via Paypal.

I am comfortable with:

Gore of any amount
Artistic nudity
Solo nsfw (no nsfw couples drawings)
Monsters preferred!
Anthro
robots/mechs
humans
feral
all body types (except for extreme fetishized weight gain)

I am NOT comfortable with:

minors in sexual situations
scat
extreme weight gain for fetish reasons (tiny heads gigantic immobile bodies basically anything else is fine!)
if it's fetish oriented please ask me if it's okay first!

Please contact me here if you are interested! You can also email me at zenmekir@gmail.com but please let me know you've sent an email because my email tends to lose important messages sometimes.

Thanks for reading!

Edit:
Forgot examples haha..

Heya it's been awhile. I haven't really kept caught up with this place much lately haven't felt too talkative or good.

I owe a trade or two but I need to cleanse the palette so to speak and work on something new and quick to get back into the hang of things.

I'd like something of Siren:
