Artist | Student | Traditional Art
Hi there.
You can refer to me as Yaiji or Dark(if this is easier)
I am simply an University student who draws in my free time.
I can understand English, Chinese and a little Japanese(currently learning~)
Art style: Anime/Manga, Traditional
All comments, faves, llamas or anything given are greatly appreciated!

You can find me here as well:
A huge thank you for all who participated in my 'recent' request box! It was my first(& maybe the last...?) time doing this! 

The intention was to have a feel of how is it like to do requests, seeing as so many artists did it and I must say... It was and had been a fun ride, working & trying out different art themes given, esp dress drawing which I'm still trying to get a hand of it^^;
At the same time, it's a little draining?- mostly cos of my colouring materials which r not cheap plus my own personality... 

I have a personality that dislikes being tied down; likes to be free to do what I like! As such, I hate having a fixed theme which already opposes the idea of requests... Yet I also dislike rejecting just cos of reasons like "I dislike it" or "I don't feel like it"; such reasons r just excuses and not real reasons... And so, this brings a conflict when accepting the requests- I know I can do it but it's not what I want to do tho...
It ends up with me, pushing myself to work on the requests cos I made a promise; it would be bad to not fulfil it but in the process of working, I wasn't inspired & couldn't give my best even if I wan to... That feeling is kinda miserable; doing for the sake of doing it and not really enjoying it...

Of course, I wouldn't say I didn't have fun cos I gained a lot from those new exposures and so, I like to thank the requesters for giving such opportunities! 

However, weighing on my own personal feel & gain, I would say doing requests aren't cut out for me... Those artists who could and even do commissions, I salute you:)

After all that said, it's not confirmed this will be my last request box; just maybe I will set the rules stricter that works for both me and my requesters in future request boxes~

All request works of this round can be found on this master post or in my gallery under the folder REQUESTS.

Oh yeah before I forgot, this is to requesters: if you want the the numbering and [request by...] written on top of the request work to be removed, pls let me know; I can do that for you!(Just mentioning; not sure if ppl mind or nt...)

***Sorry for the rant and if this post offends/hurts anyone in any way that u r gonna rant on me cos of how I am, I can only say I was just voicing out my true feelings... And if you don't, thank you for your understanding and support!:)

Not sure if ppl will like it but just going to ask if anyone would like to have the recent RWBY work I did to be made into a shirt? 

Here's the artwork:

RWBY(Coloured Ver)

And here's the sample:

And, here's how it look like(on me) :

^Taken from mirror reflection so it's mirror-imaged...Pls refer to above for the accurate pic onto the shirt~ This is only to give a rough idea how it look like when worn:)

Also, I'm thinking of adding the RWBY word behind the shirt but worried it's illegal...

So, what do you guys & gals think? For price wise, it's nt gng be cheap; ard $30++ cos of the printing & the shirt cost. This is just a try-out so let me know what you all would think of such an idea?

PS:I may/may nt go with this idea; it's just an idea!-I will see how the responses are before deciding! 

Peace out,

[Love Live] Sept Babies 2016 by shade1995
[Love Live] Sept Babies 2016
You can see the compilation here(with each individual work~)…

For each work's theme:

>Kotori: the theme was given by my friend; to draw Kotori in a cracked egg and the work turned into as shown- so a qn, "what will you do if you see her inside the              egg you r gng to cook for your breakfast?"
             Maybe cos right now is LLSS hype, I'm losing my inspiration for Muse's characters-.-

>Riko: the theme is of course her love for music which is pretty much the focus pt of her in the anime(tho I'm still hoping the anime to touch on her love for                   drawing as well; as indicated in her profile...)
          For this piece of art, allowed me to learn quite a lot; from drawing piano to posture of playing piano(but I still hav much to learn^^;

>Ruby: the theme is inspired by Dia's bday msg to Ruby in SIF of patting her sister's head! Initial idea was to have Ruby lying on Dia's lap while Dia pat her to                  sleep; much like in ep 8 where Dia was patting Ruby after Aqours came back from their Tokyo performance. 
           And then, while drawing, gt an idea of Dia's msg/thoughts on Ruby while patting her head- do correct me if the jp used is wrong:)
           PS: nt sure if I should have coloured Ruby bday work(looks pretty plain-.-)
As said before, here's the compilation of the birthday art for the Sept babies from Love Live!…

I will be posting them here soon~
Gng do a compilation for LL Sept babies(once my 1-wk break's here) plus uploading some of the doodles I've been working on(to de-stress)
Pls look forward to the updates:) 
Next compilation of art from March to August 2016~…
As much as I wan to put more in(still gt tons of WIPs^^;), time isn't on my side to work on any work and the compilation won't be from Spring to Summer; it'll stretch to Autumn-.-
Will be working on the video- when I gt the time...Been busy with my sch project(that I'm losing sleep & falling sick...) 
Fate Kaleid Liner Prisma IllyaXServants by shade1995
Fate Kaleid Liner Prisma IllyaXServants
All the existing servant forms of Illya so far(love saber form the best~)
Archer Illya is pretty much Kuro so left her out(plus no space^^;) And assassin form could be a spoil for ppl who don't read the manga(the anime's catching up so pretty soon it'll be revealed~)
Lazy touch-ups with shading and colour outlines~
Update from the recent art thief matter:…
Look's like they finally credit or at least link back to my insta:)
Guess it's...Good(?) to give ppl a chance?
Tho I believe ppl who r much strong willed, would hav told me to just fight for my rights(lol)
Explained a few times that I don't want drama when I gt many sch stuff to settle given I'm already in my 3rd yr(another yr to go!)
But to protect myself & my art, gng just put watermarks- this incident proved to me as a gd lesson to do it...^^;
With school starting, my life had been busy. But that does nt mean I'm 'dead'; may just take longer to respond that's all^^;
I will be more active on Insta/Twitter- welcome to talk to me:)
Also, upload WIPs on the 2 platforms mentioned!(lately had been doing WIPs and nt finishing them up...-.-)

PS: Just saw the no. of watchers and to think it hits 50-!!! May do something as a thanks!(after my sch term that is, haha~)…
This is like the 2nd time that such kind of 'surprise' happens and while I'm the type who try to avoid conflict as much as I can, if it does happen again...
I will have to put every art of mine with a watermark and disable the download option here.
I may even hav to stop uploading my work onto my blog; will just put links...
All I ask of is, if you do want use my art in any way, pls do ask or credit at the very least! It's only polite!

This may be nothing and people r still gonna steal like nobody's business like they care; let alone how small of an artist I am. Plus I wouldn't know if not for one of my followers. 
But just saying for a head-up if u see the changes in my upload style and take note!
Changed this work:
