I've been so distracted, I haven't actually finished anything well enough to upload, and have had issues with my scanner and tablet.
I will be opening up commissions.

due to my scanner beeing in a sad sad state I will not be offering digital works unless specialy requested. otherwise all comissions will be in traditional methods on paper and maild.

I can offer progress photos, but my cells camera is not all that great.

one person portrait sketch (this includs black and white shading) 10$
one person portrait inked (no shading)10$
one person portrait inked colour or shading (pencil or pen. ) 15$
full body sketch (no shading) $10
full body inked colord or anthing else $15

groups of people or anything else I may deem 'hard' is under negociation. back ground and items are under negotiation as well.

due to my scanner beeing out of comission any digital colourings will be under special request only, and will be more expensive then traditional (since I will have to go commute to a kinkos to scan.) if one wants a colouring of another line art that can be done for 5$

please e-mail me your requests, this is the best way to make sure I got it, and with a detaild description of what you want, this includes what the person lookes like, some personality, colours to use, and refrence pictures if you have any. please take into consideration the types of things I draw.

e-mail is wataru_agi at sbcglobal.net

please title an e-mails with COMMISSION even if just to ask questions.

remember, I will be mailing these peices to you. no peice will be sent untill payment.

Earthian!!

Wed Nov 9, 2005, 1:03 AM
I need to put something here soon....

ok, so I got earthian vol 1 in the mail today. and I was really happy, first I was confused by the cover and then the inside picture. but then I saw it was a translation of the special adition. I remember seeing that a few years ago, I never got a chance to get it it was gone when I whent back to look. so any way I'm looking and thinking this is a bit thick so I whent and compared it with my earthian books in japanese, though not special edition. well, I just confirmd, the special edition is vol 1, not including the short story at the end involving micheal and raphiel. and its half of vol 2, and part of volume 3. whats with what? will they be publishing the other stuff in the next book? I mean unless the rumors a few years ago about there beeing a mysterious vol 5 wich concluds the series theres only 4 volumes. and my japanese is too pour to read them. yes, I can only read books for little kids! and even then only understand less then half. but I thought some of that stuff would be important. what I can tell what they cut out of 2 was still part of it. not just short stories involving the characters.

Im so confused!!!!! what are you doing to me? I have wanted to read this properly for a long time now!!!

also looking at it I realized that she did loveless! I was suprised. her art changed in what 10 years 20? earthian is from the 80s. but I realized I think I recognized it. and thats why I liked loveless' art. so, now I have decided who cares if yaoi fan girls have made me iffy about loveless. I love yuns art! and I love earthian so I shall get loveless too.  

but if anyone can tell me whats going on? I mean, why are they chopping it up? I asume this is what they did to the special edition in japan...... but...... will they publish the stories they cut out sepretly? or will they just asume you have the others? I know they do that sometimes.


oh sigh.... I feal like watching the earthian ovas now..... heh I have such a skill at getting shounen ai stuff without knowing it ^^ I had randomly picked up earthian because I had enough for a dvd and wanted one a long time ago. looked at the cover and said "this is pretty" I wasn't sure if chihaya was a girl or a boy based off the cover art and screen caps! XD brought it home and was like "oh, there guys. cool." and then was like "oooooo gay sex sweet!" XD

:icongalaxy-of-cinders: will totaly vouch for my shounen ai yaoi finding gift!!


oooo I want to make a ren ai game or an rpg that has shounen ai or even yaoi~ but I can't make sprites for an rpg and I need to have a script for a renai game ;_; anyone want to help?

Cafepress is funny

Thu Nov 3, 2005, 10:15 PM
I need to put something here soon....

for some reason I whent to see my cafepress acount. I honestly had forggoten about it and not even looked at it in about a year and a half or 2. but low and behold I find I've made 23$ XD though they won't send me anything till its 25. I'm honestly debating if I should buy stuff on there with it, or wait and see if someone buys something in another year or two?

its funny the the things that sold. a t-shirt thats not even up anymore (I don't know why) with remus fan art on it. and then a tote bag. but half of the money was from refurals. I was like "eh? who did I refure?" I wish they had a link to the people who you somehow refured. to see there stuff. I added some stuff, but I don't see much comming from it. but its still funny. mabye one day like 5 years from now I'll get some check and wonder "where the hell did this come from?" but hey! its fun to get unexpected money.

I finaly have a working story for tokyo pops contest. I just need to draw it. wich.... kinda sucks since it needs backgrounds and I can't do that.

beat ToS. I may replay it again but not right away. it made me feel sad when I finished it. since I had no other game to drive me after it. its a bit annoing you don't get to keep you HP when you start over... oh well.

I lost a nintendo DS on e-bay it pissed me off. I bid 60 and it sold for 61 >.< *shakes fist*

I have decided I am in need of a laptop asap. but I refuse to spend more then 500 tops! its hard to find a good laptop that cheap. I will never find one. I wish I could get credit. if only I had credit!!!!



this place sucks creativity dry. thge people are boring. and..... where is my corps bride! where!!? its past halloween and you do not have it yet! you bastard hick town yokals! I need freedom! I need out! where is my prince to save me?

*edit* ok I got to see corps bride. its gone tomorrow. the theater didn't even have stereo and it was smaller then the smallest theater I have ever been in.

but.... the movie rocked!

so much to do, and next to no time.

Tue Oct 4, 2005, 11:10 PM
I need to put something here soon....

oh man. though I usualy say I'm bored all the time as if I have no free time, Ive actualy been rather bussy.

my job takes up so much time, and when I'm home I'm tired and want to vege out. recently evorything I tried to draw came out like utter crap, or came not at all, eccept for a few doodles that turnd into more.

Ive alsow found that the little free time I have has been abducted by city of heroes, though I havn't been playing it much recently, and my trail will be over soon. actualy city of heroes just made me want to play ffIX more, I haddn't playd that in months, wich is sad since I pay for it x.x; been playing ragnorok online as well, and watching anime. manny things to distact me from the things I ought to be doing, yet at the same time, help me with insperation. damn you you double edged sword!

I went out and bought some paper and a bunch of pens and a set of colourd pens wich were not worth the money ;_;

so I'm trying to get that nice drawing groove back, wich seems to only stay for one or two pictures and goes away for months at a time ;_; oh well I promis all I owe pictures to I shall finish them! it may be a while, other things my pop up here before I'm doen with them but.... I will get them doen! how ever slowly that may be.....


I really need to start thinking of what sorts of stories would be good for tokyo pops rising stars of manga contest too. if anyone has sugestions for themes please tell me, unless you want them for your self. ^^; because at least in the previous 4, theres beena  bit of all sorts, though not much shounen ai type stories. but I don't know how that would be over all. thwere so cruel with there 20 or so page minimum. it should be 30......

oh well, I shall continue working working working. but right now I shall add my doodles and crapaly accedentaly finished peices.

borders sucks!!!!

Sun Jul 17, 2005, 6:25 PM
I need to put something here soon....

ok... so I'm sure manny of you know (like how can't you with all the news and such and the hype and all) that harry potter and the half blood prince came out the other day?

well, I like manny other fans (like milions or bilions? O.o;) was awaiting to go get my book, I like a good little book otaku and such, made a pre order of the book. (like manny HP fans probly did) especialy since it would give me 40% off, the poor anime fan artist in me HAD to save money.

so, I pre orderd the book, but found I would not be able to go pick it up this weekend. borders had given me a confermation call the other day, informing me if I could not pick it up by the end of sunday I would loose my resurve, now, don't get hasty, this is not why borders sucks ass. well, I find out that if I call on saterday I can pay through phone and they will mail it.

I call, they look me up.

I'M NOT THERE!!!!!

no where. not my name, phone number, no one even from the place I live at! town, area NONE!

there all "well, we can give you 30% off if you want to do it now." but at this point I'm just mad. I resurved that book ~months~ ago. mabye not 6 months like the book before... (I actualy was the first person to pre order harry potter 5 at the downtown main branch of borders in sanfrancisco ^^;; they hadn't even put there sighn out yet! XD) but still a few months. so in my anger and annoience I just ran down to town to the local book store here and bought it flat out right. I mean, I would have waited for 40% off. I would have waited for the fact I resurved it.... but I will ~not~ wait for 30% off because they lost my resurvation.


I want to beleive that its just because this area sucks, and thus the borders here must suck but who knows... I never did much like chains anyway......


and my all this has doen is make me like washington state a little less.... u.u;

I need to put something here soon....

bleh... I've been so tired recently.... and really, really hating my job. even if they FINALY gave me days..... though I had to screw up imensly to get it.... funny, they tell me "we might have to put you on days from now on" as a sort of punishment for messing up, yet thats what I've wanted from the begining. mess up, yet end up in a better position over all. doesn't matter though I shouldn't be here for toooo much longer.

been playing okage shadow king. I really like it. its a simple game, but really cute. the idea of the main character beeing this quiet push over is funny. hes not even the "hero"!

I've had a lot of ideas for things... but no ambision to do anything about it it seems. I really need to get my dictaphone out, (if its even here and not in cali...)  and start talking them out, and drawing some of it.... I really want to try an animation... but for what I want to do I need help, or, a lot and lot of time. though I'm impasient x.x;

I found this site, www.rentanime.com its like netflix but just anime... all anime.... I sighnd up for a trial, about a week ago, still havn't receaved anything... probly doing something wrong... but it seems like an intresting idea. its cheep too.


I need more RP... RP thats actualy doing something and going somewhere >.<

and I am still doing my trade and kiriban, its just... taking a while ... *sighs* I need to hit my head a few times and get it working.

I'm thinking about doing a kiriban for
2,500. I think I will actualy.

on other news I'm rather proud with where my site is going. even through its slow and hard with dail up. *curses this evil island* curently (meaning literaly right now as I'm typing this) I'm cuttin and sweing up my costume for fanime. I was going to try and do two. sugino and kantaro from tactics. (its a good anime and manga go get it!!!) but it looks like with how much time I have left, and the fact I'm missing some importaint things for sugino (basicly the fabric for his obi and obijime and I may not have enough for his basic kimono!! >.<) I will probly only do kantarou. though because of this stupid area I could not even find the beeds I need for his prayer beeds. *cries* I would order them but I can't find any simple cheep beed places. *sighs* and I rather liked the wings and wig I had for sugino better then the wig I have for kantarou.

oh well. always next year ^^

I'm so pleased! I finaly got my self a domain! its www.blackopalproductions.com I originaly thought to use it for the web comic I'm despretly trying to get doen, but I thought it would be usefule for other things as well, like protfolios and other sites and things. the expence really isn't that much at all.

what really brought it hope was when someone asked me to give them some links to examples of websites I had made, but none were curently working due to crappy free servicess.

well, its still majorly in the works. the only thing that will have anything on it (and still kinda out of date) is silver-moon.blackopalproductio…

I'm really getting annoied here. the only good thing in this place is the people I met, and there a small amount and even some things they do are slightly getting on my nervs. mabye its the fact I'm feeling like crap right now and having sevear home sickness. this place is psychotic. they do nothing normal and logic and reason is lost on them. its sad and annoing.

I'm hopeing to go to fanime but I need to get a hold of vince... but I can't figure out how since I lost evoryobnes numbers or tghere more likely then not still in sf in boxess in storage x.x;;

the lack of suplies and beeing able to do simple things makes me want to screem. I can';t even get a walkman! or shop at a normal store or get fast food! if I could find a way to get a job from far away and it was decent enough I would so move back. find a room mate and a job at the same time, fly down there and start up, but I doubt I could find a job that paid enough, or a nice enough room mate.....

suplies suck here too. I have to order all my stuff.... so no browsing. how am I to find new stuff? and I can't find my brand of pencils.... mabye I could save up a bit and get all the neopikos instead of atempting to get the right amount of copic to make them worth while....

I havn't been home in a while so I havn';t been able to work on mearim. though hes nearly doen. just need to cleen him up and add the shading. I'm rather pleased. I think spending so much time with other people is finaly getting to me. its a bit overwelming and I despretly need some isolation or something. but I can't get that for a week...... *sigh* even moving to seatle would be better then this exsistence.

Yay! I got my light box thismorning! ^^ or, yesterday morning I supose now.... I'm so happy. I had to get a smaller one then I wanted since I wasn't willing to pay 50 some odd dollors for one. but I figure when I'm ready I can sell this one and upgrade! but its wonderful. its really best for 8x10 and animation. but I think I can use it for my curent project I really wanted it for. the sketch of mearim in my scraps needs to be cleand up and I just couldn't do it on the computer. I needed to outline it on new peice of paper. I just like the sketch to much to mess with it. its nice to finaly really have a traditional project. I beleive that if I do this my block shall slowly disipate as well. yay for toys! next I need some brushes since half my brushes or mabye all of them are still in SF x.x *cries* oh well, they were old... but they were lovely and they arn't made anymore!!!!!! oh well.

:iconapocripha0: I guess I moderate this >.>:; :iconmale-akito-club:
moved recently. the furthest I've ever been more or less. not to count a time when I was 10 and visited famaly in kansas.

washington isn't so bad. the island I moved to is verry pretty, and I got to pass through seatle and prtland ont he drive up here. portland is a bueatiful city. though the town I moved too kinda sucks. but, just because I moved here doesn't mean I have to stay forever, wich I don't tend to at all!

I'm on a rather good amount of property, though no house. am in the middle of building it. the town is about 5 miles away, or 30 or so minutes by bicycle.... wich I have to use. my mom insist I learn how to drive, was thinking of mabye getting a moped or something... don't know.

just my luck to be in the one place here that doesn't have dsl yet, though I'm working on seeing if I can get WiFi or something. accelorated dailup just sounds like it doesn't work how they say it does....

found a site wich cheep light boreds. definatly getting one, when I do I can finish a peace I've been slowly working on for a while. and then get working on an atempted animation I'm trying to do in flash. I tried to draw it in the program but its just not cutting it. I really need to do it on paper and a light bored is nessesarry for that.

nothing much else to say. to boring to really ever put anything here.

I was feeling odly ambistious today and desided to make a club for Apocripha/0 hopefuly people will join! took way to long to make the stupid icon for it x.x;; now I sit back and see if my labor shall pay off.

Clubs:

:iconbishiecrusaders: :iconarinatanemura: :iconpita-ten: :iconapocripha0:
GAAAAAA I have never wanted a game so much before in my life! yet all I can think of is how can I get Apocripha/0 Alex and Platina! X.x it has such wonderfule art work. I'm allready getting the scanlations for the Manga. and I plan on getting the manga when I swing by Kinokuniya once I get paid. I'm slowly getting pulled intot he world of Bl ren ai games... and here I never thought I would think twice about such games. since my impression, wich is still what the majority of them are, was just silly hentai overly graphic sex games x.x; though some are cute. but there are such talented artists drawin them. and I allways did like the idea of interation novels. used to even buy thoughs ditective book things when I was a kid. like carmin sandiego where you tried to figure out where she was and made choicess. thoughs were so fun. so the idea of somethign similor but with pretty pretty art apeals to me!

on another note. I just found out Pita ten was translated last week! I was about to buy it in japanese and luckaly whent to boarders first since I neaded to get Petshop of horros 4 and there I see it. I just had to laugh. here I had spent only a few days before watching nearly the whole show (waiting for the last 5 episodes to be fans ubed >.< ) and there it is in english! I had to laugh. I was lucky too because juvinile orion was there too! I've been waiting for that since yaoi con! I wish the aquarion age card game would get translated. I finde ti far more apealing then Yu Gi Oh or pokemon or .Hack/ or yu yu hakushou or any fo thoughs! it has pretty art from so manny people. why must brocolii stuff be so pretty. its such a sin.

I can't wait for the day they translate BL games into english. at least the PS BL games!!!!!
