Yaiji Dark
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:
Mentioned a few weeks or months back that I'm going onto hiatus and this is like an official statement...?^^;

Basically, school's getting tougher which mean busier so I will be inactive here until this semester ends~ 

While I may be inactive here, I'm pretty still active at twitter(which you see from my profile but it will only stay for a mth cos that's how long my premium membership lasts...) and instagram. 

^Both platforms' links are available on my profile as well! Feel free to follow(or stalk or whatever you wan) where I post random stuff and WIPs which I tend to do than finishing them^^;(already gt like a no. of them... Gng be a busy break after exams...)

Next, my blog is also on hiatus that I was tempted to update during my last 1-wk break(just last wk) but school work really is a lot, thus didn't manage to-.- I couldn't even compile my 3rd Pixiv compilation into a video yet...

So, I may reply late to any messages send to me, pls understand, haha^^

Before I end, a little announcement that may happen, depending on certain circumstances...

So, quite early this year, I realised that my followers reached 50 which is nt bad in my opinion; it's a milestone reached:) As such, I'm opening a special request box, exclusively for these 50 followers after my sch semester that is(pls don't request now; I won't entertain any right now) 

After that first request box, I learned of some limits I have so still in the midst of thinking of how to make this work with both myself and my followers, happy at the end!
Also, I will be taking my internship next year(which I already got it! Banzai desu!!!>8<) but based on the interview I had with the company, I may nid start early(like in December) so it's hard to gauge of how busy I will be after my school semester...

Everything is just in the planning stage so no confirmation if this event may happen or not but will still do something special for these 50 followers reached accomplishment!

With that, as always, thank you all faves and comments!^^ Your support is what we artists get our energy boost from, to continue working on our art!


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!:)


Journal History


Uploaded one of the Inktober works for the RWBY fans~

**If there's any of the Inktober works you like to see, feel free to request to be uploaded; if no request, I'm just selecting a few and uploading them~
You can see all works here:…
RWBY Volume 4 by shade1995
RWBY Volume 4
Drew in celebration of RWBY volume 4(which I haven't watched cos of exams...Pls don't spoil me, thx) and was also the day 23 of Inktober~

PS: This was drawn much earlier and kept as one of the WIPs that I have no idea when will I finish it^^;
Since there's Inktober and just nice in conjunction with it's first ep, I decided to go with ink shading to touch it up; instead of colouring~

As such, Yang's outfit wasn't updated...Which is the only thing I regretted since she looks badass in that 'new' or version 2 of her outfit! 

**See all Inktober works here:…
Here's the compilation in video form:

Greatly appreciate & welcome any likes and comments!:)
I will just choose some Inktober works to upload(after my exam); 31 is quite a sum^^;

Inktober 2016 Collage
Full compilation:…

First time participating in this; it's quite draining(cos October is the period, nearing the exams...) but fun, trying out ink style! Going to participate again next year!:) 

Also, cos of this event, never knew that a lot of the anime characters' bdays are in October! In addition, this event was the start of LLSSXPirateMarine AU!

Video form:… 
Lol at how the blog link wasn't working-.- Just amended:)
Another compilation coming up soon:)
Here's a sneak preview:…
Here's 3rd compilation that is super overdue but 'kinda' got the time to work on it now^^; Enjoy~
Just updated the recent work:) Hope it's better now~
Sneak preview to one of my possible series after I'm done with LL random doodles series~
PS: I swear it was really random but to think it got expanded until this; was just going to stop at 2nd years but I felt I shouldn't be biased and drew the designs for the other 2 years^^;
Will see how things go before deciding to further expand it~
