Hello my name is Caine (feel free to call me Cai) and I'm a hobbyist artist & writer and also an adopt maker! I study literature and have an interest in history, folklore and classic literature among a myriad of other things. I have a closed species called vetehi and I also have an adoptable line called ★ ROYAL MILK TEA ★
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 don't mind being pinged even in my own threads! I prefer to be pinged if you want me to see your message, both in and out of forum games!
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 do most of my art business on deviantart so if you want to keep up with my commissions and adopt sales I highly recommend following me there! I also have a lot of Patreon exclusive content including first dibs on commissions and non-cs adopts.
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...
✂ Is Caine your real name It's actually Cai, but I like to keep Caine as my artist name to seem slightly less obvious. Feel free to call me Cai though!
✂ Where is your avatar from? Right now it's my own pixel art!
✂ When will you upload a new vetehi/adoptable set? I try to upload something at least once a month! Just keep in mind I'm a university student and even if most of the time I'm not doing much anything I sometimes have some actual uni work to do too and might get busy.
✂ Do you do MYOs/customs? Only when I make a bulletin/journal about it!
✂ Can I offer on the characters on your gallery? No, sorry! Unless they have a price tag on their name, of course.
✂ I got art from you. Can I upload it on my character's gallery? Absolutely yes! I only ask for you to credit me to my TH (preferred) or deviantART (xCastra)
✂ Do you RP? Not currently, at least with people who aren't my mutuals.
✂ Can I have your discord? If you're 18 or older then sure! I don't use discord all that much though but I'm trying to put more effort into being online
✂ 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.
