Hello! I'm a university student doing art, writing and adopts as a hobby. I'm the creator of the vetehi species and currently working on a visual novel called Sinfonia. My academic studies in literature, history and psychology tend to bleed into everything I create, and I'm especially interested in medical history, classic literature and androgyny in fiction.
My characters are not up for trade/sale unless otherwise stated! Please don't offer on them or try to ask for trading unless they have a price stated on their name!
I like being pinged - even in my own threads! Pinging me is the best way to make sure I actually see your message, and it's not a bother at all.
Please don't be intimidated by my long forum game posts especially in compliment threads! It's never a challenge to other people to match my length; I comment long because I just happen to have a lot to say!
I use content warnings on characters when I feel like those apply to them. I don't use layouts on my warnings nor do I add anything more than necessary, so they should be safe to browse and quick to read.
Sinfonia is a visual novel I'm currently working on! It takes place in a fictional worldsetting and follows Jonathan as he enters a new all-male boarding school in strange circumstances. Through a series of strange events involving his roommate Claude, Jonathan eventually finds himself in the middle of a detective game he soon has no way to get out of...
✂ Where is your avatar from? Right now it's my own pixel art! The icon on my profile is art by Hagio Moto.
✂ Are your commissions open? Not by default. Check my bulletins for any possible open commissions or slots!
✂ Can I offer on the characters in your gallery? No, unless they have a price tag on their name.
✂ I got art from you. Can I upload it on my character's gallery? Absolutely yes! I only ask for you to credit my older art (2018 or older) to my dA "xCastra" instead of my TH.
✂ Do you RP? Not currently.
✂ Can I have your discord? Sorry, I don't really use it!
✂ What got you into literature?
It's always been one of my strongest subjects even in the national exams, but I actually got into it by accident! Essentially it was my backup plan if my actual plans fell through and they did, so I went there and fell in love with my major.
✂ How long have you been drawing?
I have always enjoyed drawing much like most kids do, but I started drawing more ambitiously when I was around 12 (turning 13) and learned about online art communities! Before that my art was the kind of doodling kids do, mostly eyeballed from manga etc with no care for improvement haha.
✂ What inspired you to start working on Sinfonia?
A friend jokingly suggested me an idea of an RPGmaker game but all the sprites are drawn in the classic 70s shoujo manga style. I thought it was a hilarious idea, but since I suck at using RPGmaker I thought a visual novel would be an easier option for me. Everything I start out as a joke gets serious alarmingly fast.
