shazy - 23 - Graduate

:bulletblue: My name is shaz, but I also go under shazy, shrimp, or rusty
:bulletblue: I am an animation graduate and comic/animation/illustration enthusiast.
:bulletblue: Most of my art is anime inspired and my style reflects that
:bulletblue: I draw pretty much everyday but I am slow to update dA because I manage several online accounts and do not like to clutter my gallery with doodles
:bulletblue: I love to draw anime boys the most
:bulletblue: I do my best to respond to every comment and note, and I really appreciate support and feedback^^

Please enjoy your stay

:bulletblue: Do you take commissions?
No, not at this time. I'm too busy with my own projects

:bulletblue: Do you take requests?
No, not unless I mention in a journal, and this is very rare

:bulletblue: Do you do art trades?
Yes, but only with close friends.

:bulletblue: Can I be your friend?
Stop asking. Being friends isnt something you ask for, its something that happens on its own after you put in the effort~

:bulletblue: What software/hardware do you use?
Wacom Cintiq 13HD, Photoshop CS5 and Paint Tool SAI.

:bulletblue: Can you make tutorials?
I dont really have the time and there are people who would teach it better than me, but if you have a simple question then I will always answer ^^

:bulletblue: Do you mind if I draw your characters/draw you a gift?
Not at all, I love it when other people draw me things, and I'm always keen to see my characters in other peoples' styles x3

:bulletblue: Can I use your work or post it to forum/blog sites?
Always ask permission and always credit me, and there won't be a problem^^

Please donate to this Animation Project~

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 29, 2015, 7:14 AM

Hey guys

I'm currently working as a freelance animator for this really fun little film project. The project is primarily crowd funded and really does need support to help it take off. Please see information about the film via the link below

If you could donate just £1, it would be hugely appreciated it. It is going directly towards the project, as well as helping me fund my own animated short which I have been planning for a while. 

You do not need to be a UK resident to donate £1 - 5, but if you wanted to give more and lived in the UK, you can get free food for donating D: See details lower down the website in that link.

My boss is really nice and has been very kind to let me take time off recently over my wrist. He and I are both very invested in this project so it would mean a lot to have some support from my dA buddies here ^^

thanks so very much!! Best wishes

Hiatus / rant journal

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 14, 2015, 7:10 AM

Hey hey

Well some people already knew this but lately my wrist is totally fcked. I have tendonitis, it comes and goes but right now its really bad and my wrist is just hurting nonstop even doing normal things like eating and just SITTING STILL. 

Its been bad for like the past month and I have a terrible habit of ignoring it which is BAD dont ever do that. Ive just been sitting in my room lately unable to draw like ... what...what do i even do... do i even have any other hobbies... what do non-artist people do when they get the feels....

Its a really weird pain too, its burning and itching like theres ants under my skin and the itch is driving me crazy cause I cant scratch it like this is true torture. 

I have a wrist brace, several drugs from the doctor, vitamin tabs and gel for the wrist as well as using ice packs, heat packs, etc. Feel free to suggest anything better but i feel like i'm trying everything right now and its still not happy. 

I started a new Rik comic page like 3 fcking weeks ago and its so close to being finished and like not being able to do anything on it is infuriating. 

Since I draw as my fulltime job i've had to take time out of that too. I'm a workaholic so this is really saddening.


Anyway I apologise that I havent made any progress on the contest winners or the comic in a few weeks but now you know why. I promise for once i'm not procrastinating or being lazy. I'm probably going to need a few more days for it to heal over so aside from maybe the odd doodle dont expect a lot out of me.

does anyone wanna trade wrists with me? this one's a wuss.

Hellooo. Thanks for being patient~I will now announce the winners and runners up of the character design contest! Firstly, I will just explain what each means. I am overwhelmed by the number of entries so I decided to narrow down the number to ease the pressure a bit when drawing them all, but I am hugely grateful to all participants!

Winner - You will definitely get a full body ref drawing of your character and they will be used in the comic somewhere with credit to you (online and in any printed material etc)

Runner up - I will keep your character in reserve and may use them if I ever need, but will not draw a ref for them right away unless I need them. If yours is a runner up, you are welcome to claim back the character design and keep it for yourself, let me know!

So!! In no particular order-->

:star:Congratulations, Winners!!:star:

I have also received some from other places that are not here, but please TELL ME if i forgot one!! I tried my best to search everywhere and get all of them together but wouldnt be surprised if one slipped away somewhere.

Thanks again to runners up! Making the decision is difficult D: but I hope you had fun taking part~ If you want your design back, let me know ^^ I want to keep them all D: but I know i have too many ha ha (theres probably already too many on the winners list but i just... I WANT THEM ALL)

To the winners: I will be working through drawing these guys at a casual pace alongside comic updates, so dont expect a drawing right away. I have already started a few but I want them to look neat and pretty rather than rush them, so thanks in advance for being patient ^^ I will send each winner their individual character drawing and then post all of them as a group ref to my own gallery. 

Just a comic update --> Next chapter is planned and the first page almost done, so moving forward I hope to post both refs and new pages alongside each other and work on content for the first book. Once again I hugely appreciate all the support I have and apologise for being pretty slow. I am a slow worker because I am a perfectionist Q.Q

This contest has been loads of fun, and I'm enjoying drawing them so far. THANKS SO MUCH AGAIN!!! <3

Best wishes

RD Contest END!!

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 1, 2015, 1:07 PM

Hey guys,

Just a quick journal to say the character design contest is officially ended.

BUT if you have started a design, I am happy to wait for it to be finished as long as its only a couple of days longer. Please let me know this though!! I will wait a little bit and then pick the winners and runners up and make another journal entry for that ^^

Thanks for all the entries Q.Q I am so spoilt for choice. 

best wishes~

RIKDIK Character File 03: Sasha by shazy
RIKDIK Character File 03: Sasha
bby no.3, Shashasha

Everytime I draw him he gets more spots...and I included his pissed off face after several people demand it be in there. I had to redraw all the headshots anyway because he'd changed a lot over the past year and I didn't even realise. Awkward when your characters sort of evolve out from under you.

He is a Suni/Pudu crossbreed cause I cant pick one.

RikDik is about the life experiences and daily struggles of a handful of deer-inspired characters on a mission to try and be entertaining. Rik aspires to be the best main character but it seems the world (and the writer) may be against him.
