Space Bunny



http://taosym.deviantart.com/art/Space-Bunny-275189076


This was a random idea I had thought of and I streamed the drawing tonight. It's a Space Bunny, off to fight Aliens!

Since this one is SFW, I took the liberty of recording all the streams and i'll probably make a Youtube video for this, and maybe the colors as well.

Tryst Colors


http://www.hentai-foundry.com/pic-125970.html

A character commission from the same guy who commissioned Futa Princess. Though this time it's his character Tryst.

It was an interesting experiment in changing how I draw my line art, and doing color. Always experimenting. Personally, I like these thicker eyelashes, then small ones. What do you think?

Feeling Better

I've been sick for nearly four full days, almost completely bedridden. This morning I woke up feeling better than I had before. I need to stop being so bad on my body and eating more. But when you draw for 8 hours straight, I don't even think about food. Lately i've been forced to drink Emergen-C which is just vitamins and water. I'm hoping I can start drawing again today, because I have 3 Commissions left to finish.

Blogging

Right now I switched to Tumblr. The main thing that i'm not liking about Tumblr, is that I can't look at statistics about my blog. I can't see pageviews, popular posts, etc. It also doesn't give people a warning they are entering an adult section. To me that's an issue, because I don't want people to see this stuff unless they want to.

That's why I am usually very uneasy about posting my art on G+. On one hand I want to show people who like it, but i'm also worried that people who don't want to see it, will see it. Giving me a reputation I don't want to earn. Another thing is I didn't really like the fact that Tumblr doesn't have ways to add comments beyond liking and reblogging. I like responding to comments, and the only way to do that on Tumblr is to send messages. Not that blogger was much better, since their comments didn't allow you to post anonymously either. On top of this I was worried that a lockout on G+ would shut down my blog too.

In the end I'd like to lower the amount of websites I use. I have a Twitter, but everyone who follows me is also on G+, and I never really post anything on Twitter that I don't post on G+. So why am I using Twitter? Twitter is very popular as a social networking tool in japan, but i've seen most people here pretty much just use G+ and only G+. I guess the less websites I use the better, the more condensed my viewerbase is, the better. Allowing me to reach more people at once without having to have a million and a half links.

I'd like to hear other's thoughts.

A Very Lupie Halloween



I've come to a realization last night while working on pt.2 that perhaps an artbook this early was a bit too ambitious. I have a tendency to run myself faster, and harder than I should. My ultimate goal is ofcourse having fans and making them happy. However I also would love to make a living at my art. Not only in Doujinshi, but VNs and pictures like these.

To put things in perspective, this picture would have cost around $70 to commission me, which considering that it took 12hours to finish, is around $5.80/hour that's less then minimum wage. To draw 8 pictures like this, it would be $560. To then break even I would have to sell 93 copies. That means that almost every person on my watch list would have to buy a copy.

That will never happen. I suspect at this rate, I might get 10 sales. I'd love a 100 sales, but that's wistful thinking. So I decided that I will be drawing three pictures.

Witch, Mummy, Maid

I will be giving them to you guys for free, in their full wallpaper size. I just ask that you watch and support me, and hopefully in the future as I grow and become better I can deliver you guys a great artbook.

The Super Lupie-Based Artbook


I announced DizzyHearts earlier this week. As you know, this is something of a solo project. Which means that all the sprite sets take so many hours, backgrounds take so many hours, and then there are all the CGs which take even more hours, the writing. the coding. I want to get people interested however this won't be an overnight thing.

However I do have time to draw other things, like pictures of Lupie.

I set up that poll because alot of people have wanted to see more Lupie, and i'm more or less shocked by the attention she's received. Meanwhile while I finish the full body sprites for Dizzy Hearts, I will also start working on an artbook. This will be an Halloween themed artbook and will be an Ecchi book. Featuring suggestive and revealing clothes and poses and as such it will be unsuitable for viewers under the age of 18. This artbook will feature eight full-color, full sized pictures of Lupie at 3840 x 2400, 1920 x 1200 and 1440 x 900 Wallpaper formats. Rendered in high quality.

When will it come out?
Sunday, October 9th 2011 by 11:59pm PST
(in two weeks from today)

How much will it cost?

This artbook will cost $6 and I will be distributing it personally, following a paypal payment. This is because early as I learn more about vendoring, I do not fully trust DLsite.com yet, and must research further.

On top of this, for every new person that you bring to my page, who then purchases my artbook, you will receive a $2 discount off the book. So if you suggest this artbook to 3 people, then I will give it to you for free!

One more thing!

Because I really value your feedback, criticism, etc. Now's the time you can leave comments BELOW regarding this book. Please cast your vote for what Halloween costumes Lupie will try to wear this October in the comments, but remember that this is serious business!

Drow Princess



Secretive by nature, these Dark Elves are a very suspicious bunch. Not your conventional type of Drow. it is a race of seemingly all females. Wary of outsiders few travelers have ever seen inside their territories, or cities, the race survives by a rare birth trait of hermaphrodites. Hereditary, the families that are known for this trait are often of royal blood, though it is possible for an outsider not in the royal family to be born this way. Drow live hundreds of times longer then your average human so it is the duty of these gifted royals to create as many offspring as possible in their long lives. as only 1 in 1000 women are born with this trait. It is thus very common for dark elves of this persuasion to have many, many wives. The average, fully female Drow however far outnumber their opposite gender, and so it is common for Drow to have partners, or wives of the same sex.

Pictured here the young Mercilia, who is the princess and current heir to her clan. And Nail, her personal confidant and bodyguard.

My type of erotica

When you start getting into erotic art. You usually start off very tame, vanilla sex, etc. I was probably lucky that I grew up during a time where the internet was exploding, and ofcourse, so was porn. I must have been around 12 years old when I got exposed to porn. From the beginning I always remembered that I was never much interested in 3D porn. To me, it lacked emotion, a mood, it lacked soul. There was something about erotic art that had a piece of the artist inside it. That by extension of his/her art, you could see into that person, and know his fetishes. I was always sharing fetishes even back then.

I don't remember what started it all, but the earliest memories I have is starting to RP way back on Dal.net. On IRC. While I was running D&D campaigns with my brother, and our friends/stepbrothers, whoever we could get in that night. Back then there was a lot of negative press over D&D. My father allowed me to play it, but he wanted me to be the hero. His reasoning I guess, is that if I was influenced by it psychologically. It would be in a positive way. Maybe that was true, because I never really liked being the evil character.

I knew I got into anime at a very early age. My mother would take me to Hollywood Video when I was a kid, we each had a rent between my brothers. I was renting volumes of Macross, Thunderhawks, Gundam, Thundercats on VHS. I even snuck once or twice to the adult section, and spotted La Blue Girl and looked at that cover a few times. I never got to watch it back then. But when the internet boom started, and I had my first computer, I ended up downloading it. My tastes had since refined and I ended up finding it fairly forgettable. Along with most hentai that I watched. About the only thing I remember back then that I actually liked was Parade Parade, I think that was the start of my Futanari fetish.

But now with the internet the way it is, artists have an audience to create things that they could not sell, advertise or really share with anyone. With an audience you can find people who are pretty much into anything, no matter what it is. People are always pushing the boundaries of fetishes, but in 10+ years of watching, reading, writing, or drawing erotica. My fetishes have always stayed the same. I might have added some fetishes, but i've never really felt like I needed "more of it", if I was into Futanari years ago, today i'm into the same kind of Futanari. The only thing that's changed is the availability of it.

What I want to do with my Erotica, is not try to make things, bigger, younger, etc. Not try to push the boundaries of what people will like, but try and expand the fetishes I like. For the most part, what I like to draw is Futa, Lolis and Yuri. I don't think that will change. But i'd like to make characters that I just don't see out there, things that i'd like to see. And hopefully some people like it too.

Prints

http://taosym.deviantart.com/art/Toothbrush-Puppy-255848340

I'm selling prints now on my DA account for the new Lupie picture. Ranging from 5"x5" at $1.29, or 20"x20" at  $24.99. In matte and gloss. This is a test to see if people will be interested in stuff like this in the future. As always I want a build a following, and try to have as much art for free (including any Doujinshi) but instead offer commissions, specialty stuff, and prints.

This helps me support myself and draw for you without having to go through ugly pay sites, having giant watermarks and tiny resolutions. So please help me out and check out my prints, my commission info. The more I can draw, the more I can spend 12-13 hours doing a huge piece like Toothbrush Puppy. Which I completed working full time, over two days. In the future I'd really love to put out a full 24 page Doujin book just for people to have. And then potential make actual prints of it with colored pages to sell. But i'd need to be able to afford to do that first.

Stuff and Commissions.

I've been uploading pictures to Hentai Foundry, but it often takes 24hours before it actually gets posted (Also to Pixiv, it's instant thankfully) These are things that are probably not tasteful for my blog, and defiantly not for G+. Stuff like lolis and futas. So if you want to see that, you can see links to the right for both sites.

I'm also taking commissions now for those interested. My style is quite diverse, and so if you're interested, don't feel penned in by what you may think i'd be willing to draw. You can email me at teracasts@gmail.com or contact me on G+.

Chasing Tails: Cover Art

3-4 hours of sketching time as I worked through several versions, and perspectives. Combined with 10 hours in SAI and Photoshop. This manga won't actually be published. But I thought it would be awesome to make a cover nonetheless.








Thursday, August 11, 2011

This is the current stage of the cover for Chasing Tails. At this point I am going to skip lineart and go for full illustration. No details so far. But when finished there will be a censored version and a partial nudity version.

Cross Networking

You can now find me at:

http://taosym.deviantart.com/
&
http://www.hentai-foundry.com/user-Taoism.php

I'm also happy to reveal more about my new doujin

Chasing Tails takes place in a fantasy realm that exists along side modern earth where dragons, demons and mystical creatures are said to remain. It is not a very magical world. In fact it's actually very normal (Though when strange creatures accidentally cross the boundaries between worlds, they could be said to be magical?). More specifically the story takes place in an all girl's school in a city, not unlike a city on earth where two kindred spirits find something in common with each other. Chasing Tails will be an Ero-manga, focusing on the story of this yuri couple.

Characters:

Kaerou
Age:17
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5'11" (180cm)

As a character, Kaerou is a very free spirited girl who follows her impulses. An experience lover, and some would claim she had a past of collecting girlfriends, things change the first day, of her third year of Highschool. She is quite tall for her age, quite tall for most girls and is already quite fairly developed. Personality wise she follows her heart and is otherwise very caring.

Tenna
Age: 15
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Green
Height: 4'6" (137cm)

Tenna is a foil to Kaerou. While the Foxgirl is fairly adventurous and outgoing. Tenna is shy and introverted. Known to collect books and read quietly to herself. She enters her first year of High School as a recluse, unsure of what to do, and as usually, retracts into herself. Particularly self conscious of the white spot in her otherwise brunette hair. Things become more difficult for her when she meets Kaerou.

Taosym is blasting off again!

Just so everyone knows, apparently there was an issue with google's Picasa service which incorrectly flagged my account for a TOS violation when my account had been marked as ADULT.

This resulted in my GMAIL which contained all my personal data and family contacts, my G+ account, and my old blog. plus everything I ever wrote regarding my pages. suffice to say that I am working hard to restore everyting.
