Video Game Inspiration!

<3 I fixed Mame 32 on my laptop xD me and my bros used to play it all the time when we were little and I’ve been having a blast playing the stupid 80s/90s games.

And the more I play the more I want to get into flash again. When I was in middle school I used to make flash videos and animations with Dreamweaver and I even made my own website once.

I think it’d be cool to try to get into that this year. Or at least read about it.

But the music from the games is inspiring me too. I really love 8bit stuff.

I’ve wanted a trumpet for about 4 years now but I refuse to buy one until I’ve researched how to properly care for it and which type I should get.

But I want to get one this year xD preferably for my birthday. A trumpet or a tenor saxophone. 

God it’s like I have all these goals and wishes and I keep adding to them every week. STAHP IT TASHINA I CAN’T KEEP UP.

Help Me Practice Antelopes!

I finished my antelope book and want to start practicing them so I can make Abby’s gang.

But instead of doodling a crap ton of random designs that I’ll never use for anything and will give me more work I will make one for you ^_^

~~

So if you’d like an antelope design reblog with the following information:

- Choose one: Antelope, Wildebeest, Dik Dik, Gazelle, Hartebeest, Duiker

- Hairstyle (if any)

- Male or female

~~

They will be pencil headshot sketch only with minimum shading to distinguish markings.

A little more realistic than cartoony and I will be choosing a specific breed at random within the six options given.

And I want to practice horns so, most females in the species don’t have horns but the drawings will.

You’ll be free to do whatever you want with the drawing and can alter the design or have someone color it, etc. Credits would be nice too if you do use them <3

Followers only and I’ll end it on Saturday 20th, 2014 or whenever it caps at 10.

Reblogs without the info will be ignored. But they and likes are appreciated ^-^

HELP I&#8217;M OBSESSED WITH GOATS NOW. I love how they hop around like drugged out bunnies xD
I&#8217;ve been watching pygmy goat kid videos on Youtube and now I need one.
And I was like I SHOULD MAKE A DRAGON GOAT.
But I kinda still want a baby goat so I have three new ideas for ocs: a baby goat and his friend a baby dragon and the momma dragon that cares for them. 
And they&#8217;ll fit right in perfectly with Toto and Kaleo&#8217;s stories. 
Used a million refs for dis~

Remember that one art contest that one time? Me neither

xD the contest I started like two months ago is about to end. I only got 3 entries so. Idk. I figure I should cancel it.

darkestlightning's entry was the most creative of the three in my opinion <3 so I'd be happy to at least compensate you with some art.

Lemme know what you want me to doodle for yeh. 

And thanks to fizzi-pop199 and stardust-vocalian for entering. I really enjoyed your entries too ^u^

Look at this picture.
I drew it in high school like 6 years ago.
And I actually really like it.
I want to redraw it and animate everything for Halloween :3
That or make a fursuit =u=)p

What Is Just Chisai Customs?

It occurred to me yesterday that I’ve never explained what my business is about :3

And I’m sure it isn’t what anyone is thinking xD

Most people think I want to make hair bows because I’ve made over 200 of them for crafts.They also think I want to draw and do artwork.

I want to do NEITHER of those things.

I have started Just Chisai Customs to do the following:

- Innovate costume design

- Discover new ideas for robotics in costuming

- Promote small business and handmade goods

- Inspire young artisans to follow their creative dreams

- Absolve the world of their prejudices against the geek/anime + furry community in particular (I’m tired of hearing my furry friends saying their parents think furries are devil worshshippers)

- Promote anime/gaming/furry conventions

- Encourage the sharing of ideas

- Education

~~

Just Chisai Customs is a custom business, which means anything that I make can be custom made and personalized just for you.

I will be learning how to do most small crafts (bows and fabric flowers, etc.), with a focus in the larger more complex crafts like glassblowing, sculpting and needlepoint/sewing. 

The main part of the business will be in costume creation both full body and fashion-wise. 

I’ve seen a lot of fursuit makers that make realistic fursuits xD and most of them don’t look realistic enough to me. The eyes are usually the part that looks most real but there is always something wrong with the other parts of the body or head whether it be the muzzle fur not cut properly or the paws and arms/legs are too large/cartoony. 

I intend to do full realistic costuming. Mostly dragons and A LOT of quadsuits, but I will make other creatures as well, mostly the non popular animals like camels and specific breeds. 

The majority of these costumes will also be animatronic, which means they will have articulated faces: blinking eyes, smiling and frowning expressions, teeth baring and ear movement, etc. 

I want to show them off publicly on a regular basis through random strolls through neighborhoods and fundraising and other such things. I hope to not only bring smiles to the people passing by but also use the costumes and attention from it to host cosplay gatherings and other things where people of all ages can come and we do volunteer work or just have a good time with everyone and celebrate in our costumes. This should help more closet otaku and furries come out and enjoy what should be a fun activity for everyone and not be judged so baselessly.

I also really love wedding dresses and fancy gowns in general. I’d love to focus a lot of attention on that as well and hopefully start a clothing charity that provides clothing and shoes to those that need them. 

Sculpting kind of fits in with the costuming a bit. But instead of making costumes I want to make statues and statuettes. Clay, glass, metal, wood, plastic and ceramic. And with my knowledge of robotics from the animatronic costumes I’ll be able to add movement to them. Same with sewing (like making a dancing teddy bear [Or Chisai <3])

A lot of my time will be spent at conventions. Not just attending but volunteering as well. I really love going to conventions and I want to start my own someday about my work and small businesses.

Eventually I will make very clear, very concise tutorials on everything. Not just how to create or craft, but also how business works and things to consider and tips and tricks, etc.

I study science, logic, human psychology and philosophy. I’d love to encourage more free thinking, self research, and logical thinking. In general point out how flawed most people think and hopefully make it a bad thing to sound like an idiot. Not just a bad thing like THE TERRIBLE MOST HORRIBLE THING. And I don’t mean idiot like 2 + 2 = 10 I mean idiot like racist or sexist jargon. Hateful speech in general. Like more action taken against people who use hateful speech, especially politicians and people in power who can get away with it with a sad excuse for an apology.

~~

I know a lot of young artists don’t take their art further or they just do it as a side thing. But I don’t want to be a freelancer or small time. I intend to go all the way to the top in the business community doing it all legally. Everyone will be buying from Just Chisai Customs instead of Ebay or Amazon xD (omg wouldn’t that be cool?)

I like to dream of having employees too someday and paying them high wages so they can make a living. And then other businesses start doing the same (pfft like that’ll ever happen). xD Idk. A lot of this is probably over my head.

I also imagine donating a lot of money. Especially to schools. When I was in school I loved it because I had amazing teachers that actually cared about my education. I think everyone deserves that. And all the homeless people I see when I ride my bike places. It doesn’t have to be this way. I want people to realize that. And then freaking do something about it.

~~

All designs will of course be created by me. No copyright. Chisai will be what I make the most of for sale, as well as my other main ocs like The Captain, when I take short breaks from doing custom work for others. 

While I will be offering to create a large variety of artwork and crafts for people, the main thing people should be coming to me for is costumes, sculptures and embroidered pieces.

xD so yeah. That’s kinda what I want to do in a nutshell. It might not be coherent cuz I’m super tired right now and can’t think straight.

I still have an infinite amount of research to do and a lot of practice to do and lots of legal things to look up and lawyers to talk to etc etc. I am aware that laws and money may prevent me from doing a lot of this, but I will try my best to make it work. And by the end of my days I hope to have made a considerable difference to this wretched world even if only in a small way or to a small group of people.

I also picked up an antelope book too ^u^ and after reading it I felt like drawing Abby xD who is the greatest sass butt to ever walk my imagination.
He&#8217;s the Master Gunner on Cap&#8217;s ship and makes custom weapons big and small. Mostly works with heavy artillery though.
He&#8217;s in a gun gang full of antelope which is why I got the book xD I want to learn about social behaviors and different species before I design the rest of his gang.
Used a million refs for dis pic. 
Dik Dik eyelashes are magical.
And very hard to draw xD

I picked up a copyright/trademark/patent book before I left the library yesterday and I reviewed the copyright section :3
And whenever I tell people that their understanding of copyright is incorrect they never believe me xD 
Lots of people told me when I first started my business that I should make Disney stuff and all other kinds of copyright material and I&#8217;d get popular faster and sell more.
And they&#8217;re right. But it&#8217;s illegal to do that.
I also happen to enjoy original work more anyway. There&#8217;s nothing like creating something from your own imagination, whether or not it&#8217;s as popular as Disney.
There&#8217;s a lot of gray area in copyright and there are tons of reason why most companies embrace fanmade creations rather than just sue everyone. 
If you&#8217;re interested in learning about it yourself you should check out the author&#8217;s website (nolo.com) which has their books and other legal stuff.
