Hey guys, it's been a rough semester, but I'm alive still!
I got a whole month to myself (other than my job), so that means I can work on Blue Fire again!
Aaaaaand, I can do livedraws again. I'm doing them every Saturday for the month of December only.
I'll keep you guys in the loop at what time.
For now, I'm streaming now so come on over ^^
Welp, I'm starting my first day back at college. Yay!
Also, I got a job, Yay! Money!
So I'm no longer taking commissions.
But I won't have much time for comics or art.
Don't worry, still working on Blue Fire. But updates will be sluggish as hell.
Don't know if I'll even be able to post anything here for a while.
But you can always check my tumblrs, instagram, and twitter for any activity.
Cya later.
I have found myself in a really bad spot and low on cash. Job hunting is still bleak, and I need to pay bills. On top of that, I’ll need money for books & supplies when I go back to college this coming August. Until I can find a stable job, I’m offering much cheaper commissions.
If you wish for a commission you can send me a note on my DA, or DM (Direct Message) me on tumblr. The full details and prices and terms are here at this link
NOTE: I only accept payment through PayPal, and only after discussing details and after sending invoice. You do not have to pay PayPal fees.


[EDIT MAY 26] Slashed down the prices even further.
[EDIT] Someone said the prices were too much. After giving it another look, I readjusted prices on most digital art items.
My last job didn’t go well, so I’m need of some funds to pay off some bills and keep afloat until I can find another job. It will be first come first serve.
I don't have everything listed here. Just samples and rough pricing.
More detailed info on pricing and what I do is available here 



I’m back working on my webcomic “Blue Fire.” Here’s proof of a WIP shot for the first page of Chapter 2. I’ve been a little stressed lately due to financial problems & anxiety, but I’m hoping that I can get this resolved soon.
So yeah, my painting project is done. Which means I can go back to working whatever time I have on Blue Fire. It's Chapter 2 yay and I'm working on the first page as we speak. I'm still blown away by how fast I gotten so many readers the instant I started uploading on Tapastic. The readership went up when I started posting on Webtoon as well. Most of all, I'm thankful to the people who were patient with me. Especially my Patreon backers. 

Now sadly, I've been trying to come to grips with some real life "adult" issues, but I'm hoping to get that sorted out. Things like this tend to make me wonder if working on personal projects is worth my time & energy. However, I don't want to give up on Blue Fire so easily, so I'll stick it out as best as possible. At the same time, that means I might be at a slower pace with Blue Fire.
 Here's to hoping that the rest of this year won't get any more screwed up
Now that I have a part-time job AND an art project due on April 13, I need to use whatever time I can for completing those paintings.
This doesn't mean that you'll see an update immediately after April 13. It means that after I'm done, I'll get started working immediately on Chapter 2.
That doesn't mean I won't stop doing stuff for my livedraw sessions. In fact, I've been having a blast the last 2 sessions. Keep in mind it's every Saturday 7 PM Eastern if you want to watch me draw some doodles.
To all of my readers, thank you so much for your patience. Big shoutout & thanks to my Patreon patrons for supporting me and their patience. In general, thanks to everyone who reads my comic & is willing to support me.

So yeah, head on over today at 7 PM EST to watch me work on comics
(7:30 if late) at Picarto TV HERE
It's pretty late, but Happy New Year! Tis the year of the rooster ^^


And while 2016 was "Meh" for me, it was a good time to reflect. 2016 was the year that I kicked my butt into gear and launched Blue Fire, despite not feeling ready at all. I also published a newspaper comic called "Toonghetti" for the "Korean Baptist Press of the USA" 침례신문. Set up a Patreon www.patreon.com/inyuji ;, finished the Pixel Brains TITS animation, and finished my Storyboard Portfolio.

Now most of you noticed that I'm somewhat active on this site. Mainly cuz I'm more active on Tumblr, twitter, & instagram. I'm going to be a bit busy working on a new portfolio geared towards concept art. I'll still be uploading the new "Blue Fire" pages here. That's one of my main focus this year.
  • Concept Art Portfolio (so game companies in Atlanta will hopefully hire me)
  • Making some animatic stories for Youtube (maybe Youtube can be my alternative job?)
  • "BLUE FIRE!"
Hopefully I'll also be a more faithful & patient person this year. 
So here's to making 2017 another productive year.
God bless, peace, take care.

PS. I'm still taking art commissions

In the spirit of Christmas & all your other December/winter holidays, I’ve decided to hack down prices until Jan 6, 2017. 
Also, no Paypal fees! I’ll take care of them ^^
I’m open for 8 Commission slots at this moment. More will open up when the current batch is done.

If you wish for a commission you can send me a note on my DA, or send me a message here on tumblr. We will discuss further there. You can also email me at inujisan@gmail.com

Prices are negotiable and might change depending on the complexity of the idea.

DO NOT SEND MONEY DIRECTLY. I WILL RETURN IT. I will send you an invoice first, after we flesh out the details via email.

It’s first come, first serve. I work from top to bottom through the slot list. If you have a specific due date (at least within 5 days), then make sure you have all the details needed. Once ideas are made clear, prices are negotiated and agreed upon, I will start on your piece if you pay first. I don’t juggle between commissions, I work on them one at a time. So please be patient.

Starting Prices (can be negotiable)

NEW Social Media Icon: $5

Simple 500x500 px icon, Black & White or Full color.
**Keep in mind, the actual file canvas will be at 500x500 px. If you wanted to blow this icon up, it’s going to look pixelated and horrible. It’s recommended to request a full color illustration instead of an icon**

Some Things to Keep In Mind: Commissions must be paid for in full prior to work on the piece starting. Paypal only. I will send the invoice after payment and details are discussed.

  1. I reserve the right to decline a request based on subject matter/content, or beyond my skill or style. So NSFW and creepy/weird fetishes are a No-go. Same with excessive gore and violence. Please try to keep it PG-13. I WILL draw OCs and fan-characters, and shipping of almost any sort (fan-shipping, non-cannon shipping, head-cannon shipping etc).
  2. There is no specific deadline. I CANNOT guarantee a week of work. First and foremost, I’m working on my own projects, or have found more work to help pay the bills. Unless you need it at a specific date, let me know so I make enough time to finish. If you expect me to finish within 24 hours after agreeing and paying invoice, there will be a rush charge of $50. So please don’t be a procrastinator.
  3. If you want something VERY specific then BE very specific (provide references if you have them). I don’t want to keep going back and forth every time I draw something new. Tell me everything from the start and when it can still be edited easily. PLEASE don’t be vague. I’m willing to work with you, but NOT bend over backwards to your every whim and call.
  4. I don’t do realistic art. Everything will mostly be in my style. If you want it in a specific art/cartoon style, please be specific. I will do my best to bring your vision to life, but keep in mind that I’M NOT A COPIER MACHINE.
  5. I will send a preview of the pose and overall composition (thumbnail and/or rough sketch) before working farther for your approval before carrying on with the rest (or livestream the process and you can view it there, unless asked not to). I will keep you updated with WIP pics, but AFTER THAT POINT IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE FINISHED PRODUCT AND REQUEST FURTHER DRASTIC ADJUSTMENTS YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PAY EXTRA FOR THE EXTRA WORK. 2 edits allowed maximum. You WILL NOT be valid for adjustments after 1 week of completion. (By then I would have deleted the old file to save room on my computer)
  6. I have the right to drop a commission anytime. Something in real life may prevent me from finishing the artwork. Or, I realize that I’m out of my depth &/or have bitten more than I can chew. You will get a full refund. NO REFUNDS after completion of artwork.
  7. You have the right to use the image for personal purposes and are free to upload it on your blog or site. But if you plan on commercially profiting from it (ie., selling / redistributing, printing on print media), the price will have to be adjusted accordingly. PLEASE BE AWARE that I will display the finished artwork on my DA &/or personal blogs (in scale no more than 500-800 px). Some may be used as portfolios pieces or future artbook pieces.

And last, but not least: 

Be kind and respectful, and I will be kind and respectful in return. Simple. If I have the right to decline your commission because of content/subject matter, then I can decline you and WOULD RATHER REFUND YOU if you are unpleasant and a demanding git.

Before I throw in the towel and start job-hunting, I decided to start a Patreon. It wouldn't hurt to start one. Even if it's not too successful, it will at least give a bit of pocket money to keep me from going insane, haha.
Anyway, it's clear that commissions aren't working for me right now, and I won't be able to work on Blue Fire as regularly as I'd like. 
Currently I'm hoping to get a decent portfolio set up. Just to see if I can find a job in the entertainment industry.
If you are interested in supporting me, my Patreon link is here
I'll try to eek out whatever Blue Fire pages when I can.
Until then, take care ^^

That’s right. I’ve finally grown a spine to start uploading whatever pages I have. I clearly can’t make these pages fast enough so the updates will be sporadic. I’m going to try and “get good” and aim for a page every 2 weeks. Hopefully comic fatigue won’t end me.
So here's the link to Tapastic.

So I have hopes of making "Blue Fire" come to fruition.
I was thinking "I'm going to get it launched in March!"
...it's April, and I don't have a steady buffer. 
I'm not ready. I'm frustrated with how slow I am, with the lack of self-control and discipline I have to sit down and draw.
It doesn't help that I'm almost reconsidering my priorities of making this comic, or stopping and working on a portfolio instead.
I plan on quitting my job this end of July so I'll have more time to focus on my comic and art. But I have some bills that need to be paid, and I'm not sure I'll be able to hold off with the meager savings I have. 
It makes me wonder, is comics even the right route for me?
This is a frustrating start to a year.
The first chapter of "Blue Fire" is about 40 pages, and I'm still on page 4. It's ridiculous how slow I am. It shows how limited and lackluster my skills are. And that's what depresses me. I'm good with updating Beeswhacks, but that's mainly cuz it's a bi-weekly (every 2 weeks) gag comic. "Blue Fire" is a more fully fleshed manhwa project. 
If I've been dead here on dA, you'll see me more active on my tumblr. I at least try to upload the fan sketches that I get to make on the weekends. Weekends are when I'm more productive with other stuff that isn't Blue-Fire. All of my weekdays have been set for "Blue Fire".
I hope everyone else is having a good year so far.

Well if you want to read in detail, it's right here. jeartcave.blogspot.com/2016/01…

Basically, 2015 wasn't bad. I survived 1 full year in retail.
Had a semi-productive year.
 
Here's to hoping for a productive 2016 as well.
Happy New Years guys ^^

I've been beating myself over getting the title look close to Korean calligraphy. Or even remotely like Asian calligraphy.
So yep, "Blue Fire" needs a title logo. Which one should I go with? Leave your suggestions, critiques, and comments below ^^
[NEWEST UPDATE 12/7]
Brother brought up good points and I decided to make a 3rd batch


[UPDATE]
After receiving a few notes and one good point from a fellow artist and friend, I made revisions to the best ones, making different variations. 
So here's the new one. ROUND 2

This was the first dump of logos.

For those confused on what it's about, just search the tag "bluefire" on my tumblr, and you'll see a bunch of sketches.
It's also a loose adaptation of the korean fairy tale "The logger's daughter and the shaggy phantom"
Although, I'm pretty sure in some other translation, it was "blue-eyed phantom" or he had fiery eyes.

I am happy to say that I have completed Sugar Dominion, the short manga.
The thing that started off as an entry for Shonen Jump's Manga contest, is finally finished.
Really glad that my brother let me use the story idea and helped brainstorm.
While I'm steadily re-updating the pages here in my gallery, it's completely ready for reading on Tapastic.
It's like having one small thing off my chest. Now I can work on other projects...don't know which one to tackle first.

Gonna be animating that’s whut ^^

HAPPY HALLOWEEN YA'LL
And yay I actually make it on 7 pm time.
So yeah, I'm animating more tits (Donkey Kong and Pixel Brains. Not actual tits.)
Seeya there

For some....well its about darn time!
Yep, I've caved. Mainly because some of my favorite people are on it.
And, I felt that I needed an Instagram anyway.
So where am I?

My twitter is still Inyuji, but I guess my twitter tag is:  inyujiwhut
My Instagram is: inyujidraws

yep, nothing original there. Just trying to keep it consistent.

Don't forget, livedraw this Saturday ^^

***From now on, this journal entry is going to be constantly edited and updated, rather than making a new one every single time.***



Will be on either 7 PM EST  or 7:30, since I came a bit late from work and dinner is still not ready (waiting on the rest of the family to come home)

Stream will be at picarto.tv/InyujiDrawsStuff
I'll be working on this week's Beeswhacks' update. If I'm finished early, I might do today's Drawlloween entry.
Crossing my fingers that I'll get productive today ^^
See you at 7 or 7:30 ^^

You can read why I’ve decided this in my journal post. You can click the picture and it will take you there.
This was a decision I made as I prepared to make a comic last Friday after work. I realized how much I dreaded doing these coics.
Mainly because I'm exhausted.

I'm working longer hours, which means less time for me to work on art.
Rather than spending every Friday and Saturday, I'd rather update every other Sunday. That leaves me more time to do other personal art and projects. 

And I'm sorry if this is an inconvenience to any of you. But this comic is NOT something I want to dedicate my 100% in. It's come to a point where I utterly dread doing updates each week. I don't want to get sick and tired, to the point where I quit the comic all together. 

So yeah, see you next week.
