Long time of my absence on the internet world would be end in this year, maybe.

This last 3 years, I had been looking for a place for me and my artwork. Let me briefly explain how it was.


Failure in Belgium Flag of Belgium
I was in Belgium 2014 for start up as a bandes dessinées artist, but in a short, it was financially failed.woe emote 

Creative Zombie in Japanese Game Companies Braaaaains... 
 From 2015, I work in the mobile game industry in Japan. I earn decent money and position as a decently skilled artist. It sounds pretty good.
However, what I have do is to provide them skill, not less, not more. 
 I work like a zombie engineer fixing all the terrible anatomy and technical problems of illustrations made by other Manga/Anime illustrators. Of course, I also did fun parts like character designing and background arts, but 90% of my job is, what we call "retouching".


:bademoticon: 
But... You Know, I don't want to waste my time anymore!
 in 2011 and 2012, I think I made nice pictures. I know why. Because I could draw freely, without worrying about clients and Japanese audience (which are basically prefer Manga and Anime stuff).

 I was making art, which are simply came from my heart. I wish I want to make art again...at the same time, it's going to be very hard to make living with it.


Here's why... I decided to launch my Patreon in the next month!!!

 Sorry for my long absence! I was very busy for preparing for moving into Brussels these days. And I'm in Brussels now. I will stay there at least 3 month, for finding some opportunities.

 I was surprised that I got a Daily Deviation on Overlap before I know it! Thank you for your supports! I didn't have much time to check internet. First of all, I needed to have stability. I hope I will have some time to check here form now on.

*To Who Lives In Brussels Area!*
I will do an one-hour live painting show on Japan Expo in Brussels! Please Like my Facebook Page and follow the coming information!

My Photoshop painting tutorial is on December 2013 issue of ImagineFX! I wrote 2-page article which explained the tips and concept of "The Rabbits Are Here" (fav.me/d68sxbm ). I think my brush is also included.

Get this Issue from this link!

 Lastly, thank you for your comments, +favs, lamas, cakes, purchasing prints! If I had infinite time, I'd say thank you to each of you and reply to every comment! I really appreciate your support!

P.S.
My roommate caught a cold in Paris. He got better but he's still sleeping although it's 8:20AM. Phew, I have to take care of him. So, everyone, Be careful not to catch a cold!

Hi, I haven't been here for a long time.
I don't have time to check here becaue I'm currently busy on my comic project and illustration work.
I'm sure I'll bring you some good news soon.

By the way, when you have an important message to me (commissions, print requests, etc.), please send it to me from my website (yukorabb.it) or my Facebook Page (facebook.com/YukoRabbit ), so that I can check it quickly.

When you send messages from Notes on deviantART, on the other hand, I'm not sure when I can reply to them. It might takes 1-2 months.

Lastly, Thank you for your comments, lamas, and +favs.
I really appreciate each of them.

With a big hug :hug:

Hi, this is my first journal entry in deviantART.
I've not been on dA for a long time, I guess it's about 2 months.

I was drawing a graphic novel for a Japanese comic magazine.
The magagine is Comic Bunch. Even if you are manga/anime fans, the name might not be familiar to you, because it's new.
However, the contents are unique and fun. I'm sure it will become famous soon.

It was published on August 21st. If you are interested in it, you can buy it on Amazon.jp. But I recommend you should wait for a while. I'll draw more stories and publish as a book form someday. I'm set about the next ones now.

I uploaded some character designs, sketches, and linart. Unfortunately, I didn't upload any comic split, but I hope I can someday.

Lastly, thank you all for giving me tons of birthday messages!
I'm very flattered!
