I realised that I haven’t posted and drawn as many personal art these past few months due to very hectic rl stuff earlier this year which is quite frustrating. My output has decreased quite significantly compared to last year so I thought of doing daily weekday doodles starting this week.
My goal is to draw anything, be it fanart or original art, a messy sketch/doodle, painting, comic or just a WIP/thumbnail and upload it here on WP, tumblr and twitter from Mondays to Fridays. ^_^
This idea was inspired from how people especially in my generation struggle with the “rat race” of life. Basically, achieving almost everything (house and lot, a married life with a child/children, 9-5 job, financial stability) early, most likely in your twenties or in your early thirties under a competitive routine and environment. /cough/30under30lists/cough/
I was wondering how it was like back in the Ancient Egyptian times and from what I’ve researched, girls were married as young as thirteen years old while boys were married at an average age between 16 to 20 years old.
I exaggerated the “ideal age” here as this was mostly a gag. And maybe Mr. Ishtar’s generation (AE boomers) had the Ancient Egyptian Dream earlier than 16 years old.
Anyway, I don’t want to overexplain myself on this comic, lol. I’m super fatigued that I’ve been having difficulty with finding the right words to say. My brain is deep fried right now but ya get the point. You don’t have to follow society’s life script and be pressured into doing and buying shit because others are. That’ll just lead to a life of regret and resentment especially if you just did it to catch up with the Joneses and not being patient and in tune with yourself and what you really want in life. And that’s something I try to tell myself everyday when I feel insecure about where I am in life, lol.

I’ve been squeezing in some time with drawing this comic for a few weeks since commissions opened and I’m glad I got it done. I know it’s not something to be that happy about since it’s just 18 pages but it helps being through with this as I can start with other comic projects too. That, and I’m using this comic to…test the waters in Kofi/ kofi shop…If people willing to shop for some fancomics I draw. ^^
Printing a physical copy isn’t exactly feasible. It would be nice to make hard copies of the fancomics I make but I can’t find any good printing shop here and since I live in Asia and the majority of my audience are from the US and Europe, shipping fees would be expensive and inconvenient for them. ORZ
I made this into a PDF format because they are much more friendly and can be opened in almost any program. I tried converting it into an ebook which was the format I wanted initially and I did. The ebook format was nice but the comic wasn’t suited to being flipped like a book. It was more suited to be scrolled at. (or maybe I’m just new to ebook format stuff)
This is only 2.41 USD. I’m not really sure how to price comics in general, lol. But I’ll just start off with that price for this one.

Thief King Bakura isn’t particular about where he bathes. As long as the water’s clean, it’ll do. But his recent accomplice, Malik, isn’t so easygoing about it. He takes her to a branch of the river near their base, but she doesn’t share his nudity-casual attitude…

I hope anyone who buys it likes this one. 😀
And yes, it’s only general nudity. Personally, I don’t think nudity in itself is supposed to be considered NSFW. It’s quite problematic to think human body = sexual. Like, are you gonna say those tribal women and men in Africa and Asia need to be censored because they expose their breasts and other areas? >_>
I think there’s a sfw general nudity and the explicit nsfw sexual kind of nudity. So this is, for me, rated G.
(Ohhh and two of my followers bought it even before me announcing it haha. I’m so flattered ehehehe. Thank youuu rochelleechidna and nintendogal55. (´∀｀)♡ 💖💖💖💖💖💖
Today, I’m going to warm up for drawing since I’ll be occupied with commissions and rl obligations this week ORZ.
Chibi Sketch commission for L ^__^. (not sure if they want their name mentioned in public but I’ll use L for privacy’s sake.)
They wanted some thiefshipping chibi cuddle in cute pajamas.
First commission finished now to move to the second one! ୧༼✿ ◕͡д ◕͡ ༽୨
I’ve also been listening and watching a lot of Blackpink MVs especially their dance practice ones. They’re very energizing to listen to albeit too energizing. I find myself moving in my seat, doing some slight dancing from the catchy tune gah.
ALSO I love their fashion sense so much, lol. (totes wanna make me buy more black and cropped top clothing) Jennie seems to be the fave of YG according to my sister thats why she tends to get the best clothes apparently. Not sure if that’s true but it seems so.
Anyway, enough kpop talk haha. I should go back to finishing other commissions.
