Hi everyone!

Do you or a group of people you know want to make your own monster battle game but want a game base to start off with?

One of the developer/game owners I help with (Kyro/Kaikyro) is offering an opportunity for a group of people to make their own separate monster battle based game using the game mechanics and features that he coded and will continue to code into his latest game, MonsterBattleArena.

The game mechanics will be set up similar to MonsterBattleArena, so you can check that game out to see the style of game you would be working with (or if you don't want to make an account, check out the gameplay samples on the game's tumblr blog). Note that your team will be making all the graphics, maps, NPCs, dialogues etc on your own, you will basically be given a base for you to create a game world out of.


If you are interested or have questions or comments, please visit Kaikyro's blog entry for more information:

Thanks for reading!

Today I was informed by a co-mod of MonsterRanch that my sprites and some other artist sprites from the game MonsterRanch were taken and used on the site EggRanch without my permission or the permission of Kyro, the owner of MonsterRanch.

Even if they credited us on the bottom of the page, the fact remains that they are using my art without asking, and I personally did not want my sprites used on any other game made by other people unless they obtained the rights to use them from me or Kyro, and I specifically stated that my sprites were for use on MonsterRanch (also GeoMonsters and GeoSociety too) on many of my sprite deviations posted here.

Please do not support that site and instead visit and play the original game the sprites came from, which is MonsterRanch. There are a couple of other egg sites that use MRO sprites, but they asked permission first and were allowed.

I know this may not be a big deal to some people, but I wish people would ask permission before taking the art of others to use for their own personal benefit :|

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you all have a great one!

And sorry for suddenly spamming your deviation section with my entries, I have a bit of free time today and so I'm uploading everything I didn't have the chance to upload for the last couple of months :lol:

Still not dead yet, although I know a select few sure hope so =P






Okay, NOW I will start working on my Fakemon region. I haven't been doing adoptables at all because I'm trying to build up my fakedex first. I am revamping all my Fakemon sprites and may edit the designs of all the fakemon I have out so far (there are several I'm definitely editing). This was a project I've wanted to finish last year but put it off. I really want to see it through to the end.

I'm getting back into the swing of DA. *dusts off account* hehe.

I will take Fakemon sprite requests now, as long as it is for one Fakemon per request (just one for now).

Hi Everyone! No I'm not dead =p I've just been busy with things like sprites and terrorizing playing Monster Ranch.

And speaking of Monster Ranch, the awesome creator of the game, Kyro, is working on another game and he needs some help with various graphics such as monsters, comics and logos for an ipad game he is working on. Would any of you be interested in helping? The more the better! This is also a commission offer so you may get paid for it too :)

For more info, see his journal entry at:

kaikyro.deviantart.com/journal…



In other news, I am gathering things to update my DA with. I've been working on a lot of sprite work and so that is probably what I will be posting eventually (and art spam for Orzel hehehe)

Thank you for reading everyone! Have a great weekend!

Over the past two months I've been getting notes telling me that my sprites have been stolen and are being used on a game on some public website, or vice versa. The reports have been picking up within the last week, so I have to make this entry to clear things up. While I appreciate being notified of potential art theft, MonsterRanch and the affiliate site Pokemon Battle Arena are NOT stealing my sprites! The owner of those two sites, Kyro, has bought the sprites from me and is allowed to to whatever he pleases with them. And it is only natural that people post the game sprites in the forums and Wikipedia websites regarding the games. So please stop messaging me about this ._.

I'll be editing the description of all the entries those particular fakemon are in to include this info.

I'm working on a large commission right now hence the lack of updates!

Also, I don't care if Raikou, Entei and Suicune are cats, dogs, gerbals, penguins or unicorns. I can't believe you people are still leaving those silly debate comments to each other on an almost 2 year old deviation of mine. But I guess since Heart Gold and Soul Silver came out everyone is looking for Jhoto pokemon deviations in the search bar? (I don't see why else anyone would look at such old crappy art of mine...)

Alright, that is all!

The hard drive on my desktop computer crashed last week, so that is why I haven't been able to submit anything lately ><. I'm in the process of ordering a new HD from Dell and it would be a couple of weeks until it arrives. Dang it, both my laptop and my desktop broke this year within months of each other, what was the chances of that happening?!? At least my desktop is 'new' enough to actually have replacement parts available. My laptop was over 7 years old and so I couldn't find the parts to fix it.

Anyways I'm going to be using my brother's computer until then :lol:. I have a bunch of arts that are almost finished so I will have a serious art dump soon!

Art submissions from me will be a little slow for a while since the laptop I did 90% of my art on has died (it was over 7 years old so I knew the thing was going to die of old age eventually). I don't have money for another one so I'll just have to take over one of my brother's computers while they are in school.

Right now my goal is to finish the fakemon contest entries that are due on Oct. 31. Then I'll still be catching up on all the other arts and mood themes.

Other than that, hi everyone!

I made an account on Twitter(yes that site), and I wanted to know who else has one so I can follow you all :3 I originally joined to get tweets from the local news station but it sucks to follow only 4 people.

I also have an artspots account now for character arts I make for people, it is here: bluey-safira.artspots.com/ If you see any of my art on that account, don't worry it's me :) Deviantart is still my main art account.

And I'm also open for commissions for chibi arts. $6 for a single character, digitally-colored image with a simple background, in a style similar to these: (edit: put thumbs because SunnyIsland reminded me that I can now XD)
Chibi Nushaa by princess-phoenix Chibi Noor by princess-phoenix Butterfly Dragons by princess-phoenix Chibi Ginger and Louis by princess-phoenix
I don't have a list or commission-closed date right now because I don't think many people will jump on this all at once :lol:
I am also commissionable on other stuff, but since I do such random arts I think a full commission list right now would be like half a page >.> I'll write it out later!

That is all. Have a nice weekend!

Edit: Thank you for the responses, I'll give it a try! :)

I have had this idea swimming in the back of my mind for a while. People make all sorts of adoptable critters and I was thinking about making adoptable fakemon. My personal idea is to make some random fakemon and whoever comments first stating that they want that particular fakemon can have it. Once adopted the person can do edits to appearances, change names, stats, add it to their fakedex, create evolutions, make fan arts, etc (just so long as it is still recognizable from the original adoption). I won't be using adoptable fakemon for anything else so it will be basically up for grabs. And anyone would be welcome to adopt one, it will not be limited to people who create their own fakemon, you can even hate pokemon and adopt one :lol:.

So, I'm wondering, does it sound like something worth pursuing?

My mood icon is stuck again >< Oh well, it still fits this entry anyway.

Okay, this was just to bump off that previous entry. Spam seems to be no longer a threat for now...

Anyways, I'm in the mood to do some chibi doodles and art. Is there any characters any of you have that you would allow me to draw chibi versions of? Preferably an animal but I'll be willing to attempt other things (I'm not sure how the other things will turn out though =P).

edit:
Chibi characters list (I'm doing it in the order it was posted):

1.  Nushaa
2.  Rianne2k8
3.  NinjaNick101
4.  Demonchild1988
5.  Rayvenredfield
6.  KINGYAJR
7.  WhitePhoenix7
8.  Demonlemon

Due to the overwhelming spam comments that my profile is getting from people who unknowingly clicked on hacking links, I'm letting everyone know that if someone sends you a link that ends in "CLICK HERE", DO NOT CLICK IT!!!!

The text in such posts include (but are not limited to):


"Hey. check out this funny blog!! LOL CLICK HERE"

"hey i thought this IQ quiz was cool. i just took mine!! CLICK HERE"

"hey! check this out! I just saw who my secret VALENTINE WAS!! it really works.. see who your VALENTINE is just CLICK HERE"

"Hey. This person wrote something about you in their blog.. CLICK HERE"

"LOL everyone should see this  ... it's HILARIOUS just Click here"


All of the links in these types of messages take you to sites that hack your user name and password and uses your account to send copies of the original message you clicked on to everyone on your watch list and sometimes the people you are watching as well. Apparently you are unaware of your account being hacked until your watchers notify you about the link, or you get comment banned for spam comments. If you clicked on a link that looked like the above examples you should change your password ASAP.

That is all. Have a nice day!

I'll do a general Happy Holidays post because I don't know how long it will be until I update this journal again.


Happy Holidays!




By the way, I reached my goal of 50 mood themes! They are all at the cute_moodthemes community at livejournal if you want to count them for yourself :D I didn't include the color swaps or private requests in the count.

Speaking of mood themes, they are my main pixel art projects. I have a list of requests to do and so those will keep me busy for a while. Fakemon spites are done between requests and I won't be able to take on new fakemon pixel arts for a while (but I'm slowly working on hongadong's fakemon sprite set)
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: some random DDR music
  • Eating: Holiday food!
  • Drinking: Pepsi
I'm almost to the 50 unique mood theme mark (meaning I'm not counting the color swap variations of my themes)! Just a couple more to finish and I'm there :D

Anyways, some people have been asking me to draw  custom LJ mood themes, so I'm willing to do two  for now, since everything isn't so hectic over here anymore :) I'm best doing animals and not so much of people. There is around 50 images in the themes.

Tell me if you want it pixeled (like like this one) or drawn (Like this one), and whether it should be animated or not.
  • Mood: Optimism
I'm getting tired of asking people not to steal my chibi blue phoenix mood theme sprites to use them as their avatars on DA. I've been seeing them everywhere!

Everyone here does wonderful artwork! I would think that we are all fully capable of using one's own artwork as an avatar, or have one custom made. People could at least ask permission as well before using my birdie mood sprites.

Other than that, have a nice week everyone!
  • Mood: Disbelief
Happy Summer to the people who live on the northern hemisphere!

And to make this entry not so totally pointless, here are some projects I'm working on over the summer (I WILL draw other things, but these are projects):

-Phoenix Calendar
-More Pokemon images
-and I got permission to draw sprites of :iconhallm3:'s awesome fakemon! I'm going to try and draw every one of them, but I'll put 20 - 25 sprites per image so I don't totally spam all your messages with individual sprites ^^

(and the mood icon selection seems to be stuck on "stunned", eh it will probably load later -_-)

I swear, DeviantArt does maintenance every time I try to upload artwork or visit someone's profile!!!

At first I didn't mind, but now it's starting to get on my nerves -_-.  

Maybe it's just a page that comes up when the server's busy... that's got to be it because theres no way they go on maintenance every 10 minutes.
