I specialize in the use of Copic Markers. Evident in all my works.

Commissioned by Terra Battle France's forum to create this banner for them!

Thankfully their selections were a list of characters I love. Also, this would be the last Terra Battle fanart I post, I swear.

UPDATE - So I sorted it out with the artist Drewbiepie personally, I'll link you all to his page, he does cool fanarts of Terra Battle too! www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=12… Check it out.

Thankfully, he's a reasonable man. I should've handled my emotions better. So I apologized for any harmful words I've said in my times of rage. (Mostly fumed by random hate messages actually, not by the artist himself at all). I really have to learn how to deal with my defensive nature better really. He however, dealt with it rather well too.

However Drewbiepie! I do see a need to apologize and then justify some actions in the pr world of fashion and art because it is my rights to have people understand how I feel at times without taking words out of context. You do know of course, written words can always be misinterpreted right? Looking forward to more great art from you.

Disregard everything written in the journal previously and below, but for history sake, I'll leave it here too.

I'm writing this to share a little bit of what's happening in my art world recently. I've really been into the art and game called Terra Battle by Mistwalker. Well mostly because I'm a fan of Kimihiko Fujisaka. So I've been doing a couple of fanarts here and there, especially for people who've commissioned me for that. That was actually how I got to know the game.

What came to light recently is a fanart of Koko I did, my recent work I've posted here, which was suddenly accused of thievery. Catch up with full drama here - terrabattleforum.com/threads/d…

the accused piece - superimposed on each other fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net… . The Left is mine, right is his. Big ups to whoever took the time to actually do this.

The stitch is, I've copied someone on the forum (I've never been in there btw, I actually don't even know there was a forum, I've been communicating via groups on facebook, they're nice, except a few... typical netizens-minded-I'm-far-greater-than-thou I probably won't name). Yes, I was accused of copying the pose of the same character.

When I saw the sudden drama this morning, all I could do was laugh really -.- This is by far the biggest coincidence to happen in my art life. Because, I've never seen his work, nor have I known of him, also... well yeah most of you guys can rationalize that, where my references come from. But I am suddenly now the grand art thief of his work. Because What we drew were similar.

Now, I hate putting others down, I don't believe in that, he has decent art, he charges 10$ a sketch, so I assume he's quite the professional working artist. But... I don't believe... that I would... actually go all out and TRACE and COPY a random person's work without crediting them (knowing how much they've work so hard, I've been there). I will always, always give credit where it is taken, learning from past mistakes. 

It's just that this time. I did not reference off you buddy, and this is one weird coincidence which now would probably be doing you more good instead of me :/ I can't apologize because I did nothing wrong, and this time I'm standing by my principles.

Terra Battle : Koko by Toosan
Terra Battle : Koko
One of my favorite character designs from Terra battle! It's a shame she becomes less cool as she upgrades her job :/

I'm also selling the original piece for this fanart. Note me for details :)

Terra Battle : Samatha by Toosan
Terra Battle : Samatha
I've been really into Terra Battle lately! Have any of you been playing? Samatha is a character from Terra Battle and the character designs in there are awesome! Kimihiko Fujisaka is my new kami-sama

This is a fan art commission I made but the commissioner backed out :/ So whoever wants to buy this piece, please send me a note. Original art will be sent to you : )

Hey Toosan!
Re-discovered you just today; lots of nostalgia and delight at seeing you active (especially on-site) since 2008.
I still have the original copic piece "Abscissa" or "Re-birth" that I received from you shortly before you left. I notice you're only across the pond now - I'm yet to find out what's new with your life/bio but I'm glad you're still creating.
Stay rockin' :eager:
