hi! i’m shout. im a freelance pixel artist. ive been around for like 4 years now helping people make video games and sometimes things that arent video games. anyway, i specialize in stupid anime bullshit

i’m opening commissions to tumblr again for pixel art, for gamedev and otherwise, which really just means that i’ll do like standalone avatar portraits and vanity shots if you pay me, too

(it went well the first time, so the second round should be even better, right?)

my rates start at 10usd / 32x32 sprite + 5usd / additional animation frame / tile + 20usd / character design, but for large projects like video games ive been known to put out discounts and for very complicated characters (like, for instance, if you want me to draw and animate a 64x64 tetsuya nomura character) (’ses zippers) i tend to markup. i also markup slightly for sprites with a larger base resolution then 32x32, but can do pretty much any scale from like 8x8 to like 96x96 (and really at that point it’s not even pixel art anymore, just really fuckin small raster art)

(if you want, i can usually provide sketches of any characters you have me design, as well)

i’m also an experienced game maker dev (going on like, 6 years at least) so inquire within about other gamedev work, in case you want my expertise (not just my art) (please do both, though) on a game you’re working on

if you have questions, dont be afraid to just speak up, by the way! like, i dont bite. i mostly just talk about cel animated anime and say the word ‘xabungle’ over and over like im trying to summon it in a mirror

you can also reach me at shout#6597 on discord, and shoutscion@gmail.com if you genuinely enjoy writing and sending emails or somethin

I wanted to draw cicadas because I haven’t seen any yet this summer!! :(    Didn’t get the wing shape quite right, but I’m still pretty happy with the pixels.

Also an enemy I designed for my first time as dungeon master with some friends, some sort of possessed/necromancied husk. Whenever I try to do bug walks they miraculously turn into gallops haha, but I like the way it looks. :>

Commissions are OPEN!

Due to a mess up at the student loans company i am going to be without a lot money for a while and I have too pay rent on the 13th so I’m opening these commissions up in the hope I can at least gain enough money that I won’t get charged by the bank when i go overdrawn.

Email me at shizujimaheiwa@gmail.com and tell me what you want me to do and I will give you an estimate of time that it will take me to complete the commission, I will prioritise by the quickest first but if they are all on the same level I will do first to last. Also if you want me to make the drawing at a specific size don’t forget to mention it, for example i cant resize pixel art once its drawn!

I prefer to be paid first so I know I won’t waste time on something that I’m not even going to get paid for when I could be doing one I will be, if for some reason you need the money back I will refund you but if I have already started doing your commission I will only give a partial refund to compensate my time. I will try not to take any longer than 3 weeks.

The method of payment is via paypal but I am using the email invoice payment method as I don’t wish to have my real name visible, so I will send you an invoice to your email address and there should be a button to make your payment, I will leave it on the span of 10 days to pay the invoice so if you don’t pay it during that time I will assume you changed your mind but if you just missed my email don’t be afraid to message me about it!

If there is anything else you wish to discuss or inquire about I’m all ears and thank you for taking your time to commission me! <3

Hey there, so over the past few days you’ve all probably heard or seen a post regarding the establishment of a new tag. Just wanted to finally formally introduce this new tag, known as #pkmnart. A tag solely for usage by people posting their original art, not reposting content from Pixiv or Deviantart but, a place where people who enjoy drawing can have their own hub to showcase their work. What motive actually drove me to want a tag specifically for Pokemon art by original artist here? We already have a tag specifically for Pokemon graphics, that has been very successful and fun, so artist having their own within the fandom feels necessary.

Something I’ve taken notice to throughout my duration in the Pokemon fandom on this site is that a lot of people don’t seem to notice original art as often as they should. There are art blogs that repost art and often get a ton of attention but it doesn’t seem many take notice to the amazing pieces artist on here shelve out day by day. The tags they put their work in usually get drowned with other content and thus their work goes unappreciated for the recognition and love it deserves. Not to mention people who aren’t well known or have a sizable amount of followers don’t often get their content out there like they should. 

Here’s an idea I’ve been mulling over for a while, artist can have their own tag for Pokemon work. Everyone can search the tag for some nice pieces and the pieces people who search the tag fancy can really get their spotlight like they should. It’s just not that either, some artist in the Pokemon fandom who do commissions could  benefit a lot from the potentially added awareness they would get from this tag. Naturally, guidelines are a pretty necessary thing for occasions like this. It’s not too much though but the only things being asked is that:

  • The content you post in the tag must be yours and only yours. That means no reposting of art from other art sites into this tag with or without sources. It must only be your own content. That’s the life of the tag, an area where artist on Tumblr in the Pokemon fandom may share their art. We aren’t seeing the same content getting reposted and reposted over and over from other sites in this tag regularly nor other miscellaneous things like GIFs and the like. That’ll make it ideal for every artist.
  • Something minor also we ask is if you’re going to post anything risque, please due tag it as “nsfw.”

Stick to those two sole rules and you’ll be a-okay. We’ve never had anything like this as far as I know so there’s a first time for everything and we do genuinely look forward to how things go down. Everyone is welcome, no matter who you are we invite you use the tag for any artwork.(sculptures, drawings, pixel art, etc.)

Take my words at face value because this could really be something amazing for our fandom on Tumblr. Let’s make something phenomenal out of it and we’ll be walking on air if this manages to become the top percentage of Pokemon tags. Let’s all encourage a stronger and healthy Pokemon art fandom on Tumblr.

Credits to pokemon-global-academy, zwampert, thegirlwhocriedfoxface, nerdinsandals and commanderpigg for lending support and critique for the idea. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to hit up my Ask. 

Remember, #pkmnart! ;)
