I'm taking bust commissions right now. They'll be digitally colored with limited background. I'll be posting them with download links when I'm done.

Send me a note me if you're interested! ^7^)/
Simple Animation
Happy New Year! by BalloonBear
I don't have many examples of this because I don't post my crappy gifs but I'm taking simple animation commissions like the one above. The movement must be something simple (talking, blinking, clapping, waving) and not too complicated (jumping, spinning is a bit tricky).

Every point counts! Thank you :)

It's been quite a long time (Last journal post was also around Thanksgiving season)
I've not been updating after I fell out of DA last year but I'm now planning to start being more active! ^_^
Thank you to all the new watchers that added me even though I was MIA. m(_ _)m
I've started cleaning up my gallery and will start posting more digital art soon enough. Thank you for all the support ^7^)

As you can see from my page, I've opened up commissions so feel free to message me if you're interested :D This time around I'll be much more punctual about it!

Also, to commemorate returning to DA, I'm going to do an 8,000 pageviews Kiriban! The last time I was active on DA it was only around 4-5k so I'm really grateful for all those who checked out my art :) It means a lot and I'd like to pay it back by giving a small drawing to my 8000th visitor. Take a screenshot of my page with 8000 pageviews and send me a note! I'll then post sth with a download link. It'll be a simple sketch, along the lines of something like this:

Cora by BalloonBear
This time it's Cora from A Bunch of Character Designs! ^_^ One of my favorite characters from the bunch. I tweaked her a bit because her color scheme was taken from Nassa =w="
Also, I left my tablet so this was a pain to color with the touchpad!

SAO OC: Nassa by BalloonBear
SAO OC: Nassa
This is an OC for the Sword Art Online world my sister and I made. It was for a Crunchyroll contest 2(?)-ish years ago. Her name is Nassa. We went under the handle name Samego! at the time, hence the signature there.

She initially started playing Sword Art Online because of her blind sister, Sakuya. She wanted her sister to be able to experience and enjoy the vast game world; something she wasn't able to do in real life. Sadly, however, they got trapped in game. She felt she was responsible and so Nassa tries her best to protect her little sister, going through all means to get by. This often means she steals from other players (hence the hood). This was only until she met Taiga, whom she started a guild with.

She becomes the sub-leader in the infamous orange guild Drunken Beatles. The Guild focus on scavenging and thievery as means of surviving in the game (The Guild does not PK). She mostly steals equipment and items for the guild, which are later appraised, repaired/altered and/or sold. The guild leader is a blacksmith, Taiga, who gained her trust by being the first dude to help them out in game (He helped her find her sister, Sakuya, who was lost in a forest). He's a big, kind and reserved dude. He's the one that cashes out the loot and manages members but he can be a strong fighter when needed. Nassa takes care of stealing and strategic planning.
They use the money from the sales to rescue hostage from orange guilds or create bounty rewards. Their logo is shown at the back of her hood.

She's stubborn and serious. Because she can't leave her sister, she doesn't exactly try doing dungeons/etc because of the extremely high risk.

Her weapon is self-made, combining a shield and a split sword. It is called Lucanus (another name for stag beetle) It can be used as a sword or a pincer to twist and grab the opponent's sword during a duel.

Here are her stats:
Name: Nassa
Level: 86
Equipped Skills:
one handed switchblade <<unique skill>> - 906
light shield equipment - 790
emergency recovery - 743
stealing 1000 - <<mastered>>
acrobatics 1000 - <<mastered>>
sprint - 920
hiding - 1000 <<mastered>>
tracking - 844
equipment appraisal - 597
slow-motion vision - 900

PS: in case you were wondering, her sister is a beast tamer. I have the designs for both Sakuya and Taiga and may post them someday ^7^)
