For the longest time I had one avatar: a Terriermon with byakugan, a spiked collar and a tattoo. ZiPo came up with it for me after I told him how much I liked Terriermon from Digimon Tamers. But in 2016 I came up with a pokesona, Glaceon, an OC I could call my own. This is my attempt to show they are the one and same - me. I liked duality images kinda like this one from Poor Yorick, so I wanted something like that. ZiPo proposed the idea of a broken mirror and a butter knife which I liked. The mirror also means that the image is flipped, so the tattoo on Terriermon’s head is on the wrong side and reversed. Anyway, the result looks cool as fuck.
Nearly 3 years ago I was working on something for a website I admin. I don’t remember what I was doing, but it was very frustrating because the said website uses UcoZ CMS. It’s actually a pretty good general purpose free (with lots and lots of ads until you pay them) CMS for people that don’t really know how to manage a website. Nobody likes the fact we have to use UcoZ, but at this point migration to a “real” CMS would be pointless, so we clench out teeth and deal with it. Besides, usually I’m the one who is frustrated with UcoZ the most, since I manage the technical part of the website, nobody else has any problem with it. Also the website is pretty much dead, but at least I keep it functioning. Anyway, I was doing something, got frustrated and commissioned Nix to draw my pokesona unleashing his rage upon UcoZ. I had no idea how to portray a CMS, and it seems she decided to just use their logo.
I saw my friend’s character doing the meme and gradually I wanted the same for my pokesona. So here it is. As you can see, this was drawn by Nix.
Just 19.5 months after placing the order Nix started drawing my commissions. This is the first one out of currently 11 (!) that I put into her backlog. Some of those aren’t even relevant anymore… Anyway, my first commission was my pokesona as a member of Team Skull from Pokemon Sun/Moon.
Back in April my friends and I had an idea for a custom cup design for our tea parties. My friends helped me brainstorm the design idea, and I then commissioned Nix to draw my characters drinking tea.
Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted here… I guess a VK profile is enough for me nowadays.
Anyway, I commissioned Nix to draw my pokesona, Glaceon, drinking away his sorrows. Kinda like I do lately…
I’ve never ever had a pokesona before. Eeveona helped me to come up with species and a design. I’ll explain who Eeveona is in my end of the year post.
