I hope my work achieves in inspiring others in the same way that I am inspired.

Okay guys I've posted up my pricing guide for commissions. Please let me know what you guys think about the prices, services, etc. Like I said I won't open up commissions until September when everything's all clear on my part. I will post up a journal letting everyone know when the window will be open. 

Makini90 Commission Price Guide and Info by Makini90

About point commissions...

It's likely that I'm not gonna do pc's simply because I have no use for points. If you guys can give me another reason to do pc's other than because it's common, people would rather pay points, and I can save up for premium membership, I would like to know. I'll create a pricing guide for pc's if I'm convinced, other than that. I'm probably not gonna do it. 

Anyway, please let me know what you guys think. I would like as much feedback as possible. 
Take care everyone.

This is definitely a more positive journal. I gotta send a big thanks to :iconkaylakedziora: for helping me figure out a way to make the colors in my artwork much more stronger and pop out more. She took the image I did of Gabi and messed around with the coloring in a pixiv edit software. She gave me some of her examples of what she did and I tried to replicate the exact same effect in illustrator. I think what's gonna help me is to use the color adjustment and balance tool in illustrator since illustrator doesn't have a levels tool. Then add on a bunch more colors set to a high intensity blur and overlay throughout the illustration to help build up the colors and create an ambiance and atmosphere. I'm feelin really good about came out with the Gabi illustraiton and I decided to add that same effect to the Nadia illustration a while back, even giving it a big lens flare in the background. 

This has me really excited to do more sketch work of this project and bring more sketches to color. Two things that I wanna ask you guys, check out the two illustrations below and let me know what you think as well as check out the link below. The link is an album of all of the sketches that I did for this reborn project and I want you guys to let me know if there's another sketch that you would like to see me color next.

Hey guys,

This is more about the project itself than the sketches. This week, My mind's really been on The Underground Stuff. I've added 4 more characters in the past few days, been very sketch heavy, and more and more the premise and story is developing in my head, if not slowly. Plus I'm finding more and more ideas every day. I've really been showing off every sketch on my google+, dedicating a series of it on my blog, and showing you guys snippets of what I post up on google+ and linking the posts for you to check out. It really does feel like I've been getting in a new sketch on this project every single day if not two. Plus continuously looking for inspiration, watching the Legend of Korra, playing DOA5U and just looking at artwork is giving me a lot more juice to continuously work on this project while i'm doing other stuff. 

But at some point I need to probably start explaining what these sketches are about and start talking about this project. So this is about feedback and possible ideas on what to do from here. I kinda wanna split this off into two different types of drawings, one where it focuses on each character and ones that are open form and help flesh out the world. In addition to the set number of sketches that I post up on my blog (once I have enough to show) and me converting these sketches to full-color illustrations (done in the same coloring style that I was doing the project and I will get back to that soon just wait) I wanna start doing a series of blogposts dedicated to each character. It can consist of one or two full color illustrations along with the sketches that focus on that character. In the blogpost I can go in-depth on each character's backstory and mindset when approaching this character. I can post up a set of profile illustrations on each character with a more summarized, but detailed profile in the description like I did before. 

Which does leave me asking, how you you feel or react if I post up all of the sketches here. It feels like I'm leaving DA in dark with this project since I'm constantly posting new stuff on google+ and having you guys see it once I post up a new compilation blogpost weeks or months afterwards. This project is growing in my mind as I'm working on it helps that this time I feel that a plot is developing. I do feel that a lot of the new characters will be taken from the old sketchbook as well as the revised series I was doing back in January, rebuilt from scratch. I only have a few characters that are completely new. So it is what it is. Anyway I wanna leave you guys with some new sketches below that I did this week. Please let me know what you guys think. Feedback is always appreciated. Later everyone :)
