Hey guys, thanks for the support and interest! I'm not accepting any more commissions for this batch, got enough to keep me busy for a while. :)

I'll post again when slots re-open.

Yo! My handle in most places is ExMachina/exmakina, so if you've run into the name online somewhere, that's probably me.

I play a lot of video games, read way too much genre fiction, and might have an addiction to loose leaf tea.

TheFantasyKings Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2017  New Deviant

We are TheFantasyKings and we are spreading Words of a Creativist’s Strength. Because we believe that a creative heart is the most vulnerable thing, and why most wither before what life throws at them is because they are weak. Whether you are old or new, recite these words:

    

· A creativist must be strong.

 

· A creativist must have the power of faith.

    

· A creativist must keep only the root inspiration alive.

    

· A creativist must always grow.


You become strong in many ways. You gain strength through practice, being emotionally strong, have disciplines, learning from the past or future headstrong self, through God. A creativist must be lucky. That comes from believing that everything will turn out great in the end and go on, then things will eventually become better. (But do use your reason.) The third point clears things from getting complicated. It’s very easy and very dangerous to be stuck in hoarding memory, in a creativist’s case, what things have inspired them. With time this list grows and the worry to lose those little things ‘that made you’ increases. Instead, you should keep the root inspiration – the book, the movie, the game, the experience, the feeling or the want – that maybe be one or three. Because that is the one that paved the path for you, what actually made you, all the others just come to teach something. And you can always regrow your list if you need. You must keep growing and expand your ground. (And stick to your one ground.) Don’t be stopped by the limited knowledge, skills or critic at the moment. You always learn throughout your journey. Let the words let you focus.


We hope you rise quicker from every slump you fall. And if you have any suggestion to make in these words, do reply.

Not at the moment, unfortunately. I'm already swamped with the current art workload on my plate right now, I'll definitely post if I open up requests/commissions though. Thanks for your interest. :>

I would like to invite you to join my art book contest that I'm hosting in my group, :iconforever-nintendo: . The contest is "The Game and the Gamer Contest" and will consist of three separate themes: redesign, games playing games and project yourself. Each theme will have a separate deadline, here are the deadlines: October 25th, November 14th and December 5th. Ultimately, the best entries will be made into an art book. There will be big prizes given to the contest's victor and to the runner ups. Will it be you? Join and submit an entry and we'll find out.
Here's a link to the contest journal: :thumb485221457:
