What? You're actually reading my profile? Y'sure you want to? *shrug* okay....


Well, I'm half japanese, half mostly german mix, a webcomic maker, studying to be an illustrator ( http://ftepainting.deviantart.com ) I never write yaoi/yuri/porn/etc and I like plot over art, though art does help when presenting a story. mmm... hyep, that's about it.

Anything else you want to know ask, I'll answer and add it here -_-

About the linearts
They are posted this way because they are posted in the same order that they're posted in my Deviantart account. The only website that has JUST the finished pages posted at the most up to date is the main website.
Your Help is Appreciated
If this is just really presumptuous of me, I don't mean any offense.

This past Saturday morning my grandfather passed away. I won't be able to attend the funeral, but I'm trying to raise money so that I can visit my grandmother in the winter. I am lowering my commission prices in the hopes that some people will hire me so I can start saving up while looking for a job in town. If you could pass the word along, I'd be most grateful.

This is a link to the journal about my grandfather as well as the new prices I have for commissions: http://nytrinhia.deviantart.com/journal/26746719/

I do realize that visiting my grandmother after the loss of her husband is nowhere near as serious as hospital bills or a broken computer or any other issues you see around, but it is important to me, and I appreciate any help you can offer, even if all you can offer is to pass the word along.


My Commission Prices are:
Bust: $6
Half-Length: $11
Full Length: $16
Chibi: $8

Add Color: +$5

I'm really proud of this cover :3 It looks better every time I look at it X3

Those of you who have read the old pages will recognize a little white-haired enigma with Vardengard there. Yes, it is Jaryez. Thank you for noticing :D

The next page will be posted as soon as I'm able to make it. I am currently in the middle of scripting chapter 1 and I think you'll all love it! Thanks again for all of your patience and love and for sticking with the comic and all our hiatus', dry spells and other such moments when I've failed at being creative :3
End of Prologue.
SO. MUCH. SIGNIFICANCE. AND. SYMBOLISM. SO. MUCH. INFORMATION that means nothing to you since this is, as stated before, the end.

But don't worry, by the end of the comic it'll all make sense :D

Probably doesn't make you feel a whole lot better, but you'll just have to deal with it. It'll make it more enjoyable to not know everything :3
It's really, really dark and yes, flat. Sorry. I don't have time as of now to do shading and lighting and all that fancy stuff.

As promised, follow the link to the new comic. This will remain maintained as the artwork and old pages dumping ground. Any artwork, fan art, contests (if we go in that direction) will be uploaded here. So feel free to watch both :3
So it starts.
And what better way to start than with the end?
I will refine it when I have more time.

Anywho, featuring an illustration of the prolouge for the new 666 script. And no, I'm not telling you what's going on. You'll have to wait for the page. And yes I know y'all have been waiting for the pages for forever. I have a seven week break coming up. Bear with me.
obscure...
mangatraders.com is a pretty good sight to look for comics. You do have to register, but it's free.

I personally love "From Far Away" and all other things by Kyoko Hikawa. Emura is another good artist, she did W Juliet. Beauty is the Beast.

Bride of the Water God
Ouran High School host club (don't know if you've read it, it has a semi-large fan base, but not as crazy as Naruto or Bleach)
Millenium Snow
Yotsuba
Fairy Tail
I hate you more than Anyone (the art is so-so, but it's a cute little read)
Penguin Revolution (my current favorite obsure manga)
Monkey High
Operation Liberate Men


That's about what I have right now. I've read some 60+ odd titles, again, don't know what you've read, those are most of the newish titles I've read (new as in past year or two)
SO.
This is the last of the pages. If you haven't been to my DeviantArt account, I just moved accounts, will be going to school in April (doing 18 credits this semester) and have decided to comepletely re-do 666. I don't like the name, the beginning has been bothering me since forever and I really would like to put some color into it.

So, this will remain here forever, but the re-vamp will be posted somewhere else on DD, and I will provide a link here when that happens.

If anyone here is interested, and would like to keep seeing art I do of 666, I can continue to post it here, but a fair amount of people need to want that, because I don't want to go through the work if no one's interested.
Possible future Hiatus
Tsuchan's trying to be a little friendlier.

What do you think he's reacting to?

Anywho, for those who still haven't heard: Updates to be extremely few and far between. This summer I'm taking 21 credits. I had to drop classes last semester, and I need to make up the lost time and such if I want to graduate on time. Hopefully I'll still be able to update, but that's not going to happen in the case that I get too busy. I still have to get a job while I'm working, because I'm worried about having money for the fall semester.

So there you go. That's the situation. I know I said I didn't want to go on hiatus again, but it sadly looks like that might be the reality.
Page 3
I like the idea, but not so much the outcome.

Anywho. Pages will be extremely slow after this. This semester I'll be taking 21 credits at college and possibly be working. Not to mention that the pages after this will be much more detailed. So, here's to hoping we get some work done.
Magicks
Enjoy. Updates after the next page will be much more spaced because coloring after the next page will be MUCH more involved.
So since my scanner is not QUITE in working condition, I've made some character sketches for y'all to enjoy in the meantime. I did eventually get photoshop to work on the slow computer and did get the pages on my USB drive, but not before I was finished with this, so have fun looking and trying to guess who they are.

So my scanner is out. Well, not out, it's just hooked up to a computer that freezes as soon as you turn it on. We have to download the software onto another computer so I can scan in the Poisoned Land pages.

Yes, it's a day late, but it's here. I had to do some rearranging of the panels. Still don't have time to color, so yeah, until I find someone who wants to help me out, there's not going to be much, if any color for the rest of the pages.
Sorry it's only one panel.
I originally wasn't going to give english translations, but I suppose it would make more sense to have them.

No, it's not chinese, they're totally made up characters, and you'll see why.

The Poisoned Land is a comic about the world that Jaryez came from. He's only in the prolouge though. If he's anywhere in the rest of the comic, it would be in flashbacks.

So, as some may have noticed, yeah I did say I wouldn't upload the pages, but here we are... I figured it'd motivate me to do more.

And yes, it is flat shaded. It's that way for a reason.
bleh
I'm really too tired and too stressed to color this page this week. But you get it a day early, oh happy day.


I think I might just go ahead and do donation stuff, at least that way I can get the ball rolling and I can have a bit of an excuse to do art more for fun.
Thanks a lot!
And now 666 Apricots has 500 fans. Picture for you of Zarron and Katrin.

Now, onto more serious business, how would you all feel about donation pictures? Something much more high-quality than this, wallpaper size (fitted for the largest monitor) and given to those who donate to the upkeep of 666 Apricots. If enough people are interested, then 666 will stay in color (by me) and possibly we could have more updates than once a week.

If no one's/not enough people are interested, sadly I can't spend the time to color the pages and the updates may have to go down to bi-weekly (I'm trying to do a very full schedule this semester).

The donations would be a small amount, like $1-$2. If you donate more, I might be inclined to do something more for you

Anywho, please give me an answer. Yes, no, opinions, etc.
ugly background is ugly.
Another page with lots of mistakes, and somehow, I am yet again sick.



I'm looking for a colorist. I need someone with lots of free time and owns Photoshop. Having someone help me with the pages would not only make updates easier and on time, (they're supposed to come up Friday) but it would also allow me to start another comic I've started, but due to 666, have not as of yet had the chance to continue. So, if you're interested in helping me out (I can't pay you, I'm getting no money for this myself) send me a note.
