Finally got off my ass and submitted something. Haha. More to come, eventually.

My username is also finally based on my actual name! Thank you so much to Arahiriel AND mysterious benefactor for the subscriptions. <3

For more info about my hiatus and contact, read my previous entry.

x VM.

Wow.  25, 474 messages (236 notes).  My inbox is freaking me out.  :fear:

Just a short message to say: sorry for disappearing for so long.  My personal life was quite turbulent for a while, and I needed to take a hiatus from the internets to address those issues and have some much needed time away.  Things were resolved, some major changes were experienced, and life is pretty fucking great now -- with the exception of exam stress.  I'm in the middle of sitting what I hope to be my final law examinations ever.  If all goes well, I can happily draw for the rest of my life and finally pursue art & design. :)  

I recently began updating my blog.  Pop over there, if you'd like.

Otherwise, I'll eventually have a major gallery overhaul here.  (There is a LOT more artwork on my blog, if you'd like to take a browse.)

If you wish to contact me, I'd advise you to shoot me an email.  But please be aware that I may take quite some time to get back to you (I have a MASSIVE backlog of emails, and I won't have time to start sifting through them until after exams).  I hope you've all been well. :heart:

x Viet-My.

PS. You can change your username now?!  Hmmm.
PPS. Pfft... I ain't paying for that, haha.
PPPS. The incredibly sweet Arahiriel has granted me a subscription. <3 Thank you so much!  Time to change that username...

hello, hiatus!

Remember me? =P

Just wanted to say a few things.

Hiatus

As you may or may not have noticed, I seem to be taking a semi-hiatus from DA.  It was only meant to be a couple of weeks - a month at most, but after realising my last real gallery submission was (exactly!) a year ago, it has come to my attention that the break has been much longer than anticipated.  I think it's evolved into a hiatus.  There are several reasons as to why I've been taking time away, and I'll elaborate on that next time.  But let's be clear: I will return (I never intended to 'leave', anyway). And I haven't stopped drawing and I'm not sick, or anything drastic like that!  (I've been receiving some worrying messages.)  I predict I'll be posting artwork in 2 months-ish, but I guess it'll happen when I'm ready.  (Y'know, personal journey, blah blah.)  Thanks so much for your enduring concern and support, but rest assured I'm fine, just focusing on my personal life (and commitments). :)

Art for Japan

Thank you SO much to everyone who has participated in and supported my ART FOR JAPAN initiative.  I will definitely update you on the commissions when I'm done.  However, please stop sending me commission requests because the deadline was in March, and I am no longer taking any new ones!  If you're interested in a commission regardless, please shoot me an email.

Twenty-three

So, I turned 23 on 14 May.  A lot of you sent me beautiful birthday messages, so thank you so much. :heart:  You are sweet.  I received the best GODDAMN present in the entire universe and all universes beyond.  It was actually a crazy awesome day, even though I don't really care about/remember my birthday.  It's weird, though.  I don't feel 23.

Seniorness

I have just realised that for some baffling reason, I have become a Senior Member.  I'm perplexed and humbled, I feel it's wholly undeserved, and am feeling increasingly guilty since I've been away for so long.  But nonetheless -- thank you.

Blog

Find me here: vm-bui.com.  But... only sometimes?  Haha, I'm guilty of being inactive there lately, too.  But blame that on uni.  I'll be posting again in a few weeks, once my exams finish.  I post most of my work there - sketches, speedpaints, etc.  Some photos.  (And I will eventually post them here!)

I think that's all.  Thanks for your patience.  And thanks for those that are still sticking around. ;P  Massive group hug.

xx V

Art for Japan - UPDATE

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 24, 2011, 11:28 PM




:bulletpink: Art for Japan commission info here. :bulletpink:

I've been completely overwhelmed by the response.  My inbox has been nothing short of inundated the past few days!  However, since the response has been much larger than I anticipated, please expect a small delay while I finish all the illustrations.

Below is the list of generous clients who have paid.  I will be completing your pictures in the order I received your payment, and will be updating this post with links to finished artwork.  (I will also be adding more names as payments roll in.)

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed & expressed interest. :'-)  To raise this much in just a matter of days is absolutely insane.  Thank you for helping me!  Let's keep doing this!

Art for Japan

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 19, 2011, 3:23 AM


As most of you already know, on 11 March, Japan was devastated by a magnitude-9.0 earthquake, one of the largest ever recorded.  This was immediately followed by an enormous tsunami that washed away thousands of homes.  Currently, the death toll stands at almost 10 000, and is still climbing.  Thousands still remain missing.  Hundreds upon thousands have been rendered homeless by the decimation of their villages.  And yet there still remains the grave instability of the nuclear reactors and threat of contamination.

So I'm opening commissions again; this time for Japan.

:bulletgreen: WHERE THE MONEY WILL GO
100% of the proceeds will be forwarded to Save the Children.  My buddy Grace, on behalf of her employer, will match every single dollar that is donated.  That means, ultimately, whatever amount I raise will be doubled and forwarded to Save the Children.

:bulletgreen: WHAT I WILL DRAW
Whatever the hell you want, as long as it isn't something I find offensive. :)  I'm even willing to draw FANART.  In fact, I encourage it!  Since so many of us love the manga, the anime, the movies - just about everything that comes from Japan - I think it'd be entirely appropriate.

:bulletgreen: HOW TO COMMISSION ME
Please go to my (temporary) Commissions page to see samples, prices & info on how to proceed.  Leave a comment here for any queries.  Email me if you are genuinely interested.  Commissions will remain open for one week, and I will take on as many as I can handle!

:bulletgreen: OTHER RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME ARTISTS DRAWING FOR THE CAUSE
If my art doesn't take your fancy, then I'd strongly recommend you take a look at these bloody talented individuals:

:iconna-insoo: :iconanarahk: :iconvusc:


Even if you do not have the money, please spread the word. ♥

Cheers,
Viet-My.

Commissions for a good cause.

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 15, 2011, 12:31 AM


Hello! Just for this weekend, I'll be opening up commissions.  For $60 USD, you shall receive a full-body sketch illustration of one character.  100% of the proceeds will go towards the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal.  For more information about the commission & the cause, please go to my site.  

I'll take on as many as I can!


Thanks so much for all the interest!  I'm working hard on them now.  

Cheers,
Viet-My.

Hi, everyone.  I'm sorry I haven't been around much, lately, but I will post stuff in the New Year.  I'd like to share two things with you, though:

:bulletgreen: An entry I posted on my blog About My Studies.  This is to answer many of the questions I've received over the years, and to clear up any confusion.  Also... I guess to tell you a bit more about myself.

:bulletgreen: A vlog/video thingie I recorded for all of you!  Just wanting to let you guys know that I'm so grateful for your support over the years, and that you're awesome.  (It was mega embarrassing for me to record but yyyyeah.)

Merry Christmas, everyone!

xx Viet-My.
