I'm starting to do more (almost) daily sketches. Is it worth it for me to upload them to my Scraps? 

22 deviants said Yes - I'd like to see some sketches in addition to refined work.
3 deviants said No opinion - I probably won't look at them but I'm not stopping you.
No deviants said No - it's better not to fill up the inboxes of those who do watch Scraps with that much stuff..

I find traditional art more fun than digital art, so though I do a lot of digital art, I consider myself more of a traditional artist. :dummy:

Though they don't appear often in my work, I really enjoy drawing fish and chains, and some other odd objects.

I'm also a cosplayer, though I'm fairly new to it and still trying to work out make-up and all the more complicated things. But I would love to find some new cosplay friends, so I wouldn't mind messages if you have a question/comment on cosplay or something is simply on your mind!

Feel free to ask any questions ^^

I am also Aki-rain on: FurAffinity, Pixiv, Piapro

UPDATED Commission Information

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 20, 2014, 7:57 AM
Last updated on July 20th, 2014: Reworded some terms and posted a new journal. Point values are now equivalent to USD values. Watercolors are now available!

I have most of this information on my website as well.

Commissions are currently open!
All previous commissions (that I have posted to dA) can be found in the Commissions folder of my gallery.

  • If you require a refund for any reason while the work is in progress, then the partially finished work and a refund will be sent (amount depending on how finished the work is). I do not offer refunds after the picture is completed and delivered.
  • You may not resell or otherwise reuse the art that I make for you. Personal use is fine - if you are going to edit the work, please ask permission first. If something needs to be redrawn, please ask me!
  • Drawings may take from a few days to a few weeks depending on whether they are digital or traditional, how complex they are, and how much free time I have. It also depends on how many commissions I have to complete -- works will take longer if you request when I already have a few works in line. Set deadlines within this time frame may demand additional cost.
  • I can decline a request if I am not comfortable with the material for which it asks. At the moment I am only agreeing to commissions with subjects considered safe-for-work.
  • I do not take commissions for fan art! Please make sure you have the permission to use a character if you request it. (Exceptions for personal characters such as gift art are okay if you know the other person closely.)
  • My usual working size for traditional is 9 inches by 12 inches, and for digital, it is usually about that size at 300 dpi (about 3000 by 4000 pixels). Icons are an exception, of course.
  • Traditional commissions can be sent to the client (I will pay for shipping) if an address is provided with payment.
  • I typically upload commissioned works to websites such as deviantART, FurAffinity (if animal related), etc. Please let me know ahead of time if you do NOT want me to publicly upload the work!
As a commission is finished, it will be uploaded here on dA, with a link noted to you to the full-size PNG in Please make sure to save this file, as I have limited room on! For digital work, I can offer a full-size PSD if requested upon completion of the work.

I take commissions for both points and USD. USD transactions are completed through PayPal, and point transactions are completed through the "Give Points" feature.
Prices might change depending on variables such as additional characters, complexity of the character(s) (for example, this would be considered a complex character design), and whether there is a deadline.

Not currently offering: (but may in the future)
  • Badges
  • Paintings (digital/traditional - acrylic)

To order a commission, please note me. I'll need information such as the commission type (from the list above), a character reference or description, what kind of animal they are if they aren't human, a preferred pose/situation, and a preferred background if there is one. Please let me know ahead of time if you'd like to see progress shots in addition to the initial sketch that I offer. 

As the commission is requested, I will complete and send an initial sketch(es) of the work for approval. This allows me to fix things at the earliest stage possible so it's easiest. After the initial alternatives, if the client wishes, I can draw one more proposal sketch (two for icons), but any more than this may require extra payment. After the initial sketch is chosen and approved, payment will be sent and I will continue. Excessive changes near completion may also cost additional payment, though it is my goal to get the work the way you'd like it as early as possible.

Aki-rain Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2014  Student General Artist
I think you're at least as good at art as I am, and your control of watercolors is definitely better - but I guess you can call me that if you want XD

Yes, I love Vocaloid! All the songs and the people who make them are so inspiring. I'll try to do more Vocaloid works then :D (But there's so many other cool series I want to draw from too!)
KoijiSugimorii Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
that doesn't matter!!! :D you'll be one more sempai for me :)

yeah!!! Vocaloid is just....... too amazing!!!! I'm really looking forward to see more Vocaloid works :D the saga I like the most is "The Evillious Chronicles", and yours?!

I don't know if I have a single favorite song! There are so many that have kept my attention for a long time. But I really like "Eternal Force Blizzard" by Minatsuki Toka (an UTAU character sings it, but I listen to so little UTAU that I count it), and "Umbrella" and "Undefined" by Tiara. "Jitter Doll" by Niki is pretty epic too.
