ALRIGHT I’m ready to open back up officially for commissions, complete with this brand new fancy commission post! I hope that crudely made gif of me waving my arms while my facial expression remained exactly the same caught your attention! I’m saving up to move out and as of right now I haven’t yet succeeded in getting a job, so I’m hoping to earn at least a little of what I need by drawing things, wow, wouldn’t that be cool.
- I take payment through Paypal
- you must provide adequate reference (either description or pictures) for me to be able to draw what you want
- you must be willing/able to communicate with me
- I will draw animals and people and simple robots and stuff (though I’m best with cats and people), but if your request is especially complex in some aspect, expect there to be an increase in pricing from what is listed above!
- Complex background/environmental elements add to the price (I’ll give you estimates and we can negotiate based on how long I think it might take me to do).
To see more examples of my art, well, this blog is my art blog, so feel free to look through it!
To contact me about commissions, please send me fanmail on my main blog (alexanderperchov) or email me (email@example.com)! If you have questions, you can send those in an ask (but I won’t accept commission orders in asks, because they’re too easy to lose track of).
I will do things other than what is listed above, so please don’t hesitate to ask me if you have any questions - my pricing is more a guideline than a set thing.
(Oh, and if you aren’t able/interested right now, if you could signal boost this, that’d be awesome!)
Friends, summoners, ontologists,
My name is Eirikr and I’ve been a Shin Megami Tensei fan for many years. I’ve fused my share of demons, helped make Giant Bomb the #2 wiki resource for SMT, and have even been able to provide hot SMT IV scoops since I moved to Japan. It’s highly possible you’ve seen some of my contributions, and thank you for reading.
However, I’m here to talk to you today about a serious problem afflicting our community. Both the hard-working people at Atlus USA and innocent fans everywhere are suffering from an acute form of eye strain known as “Hitoshurus Demialis.” Hitoshurus Demialis is caused by an extreme form of eye-rolling known to be onset by usage of the term “Hitoshura” instead of “Demi-fiend” when referring to Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne’s protagonist.
Reasons sufferers of Hitoshurus Demialis cite for the eye strain include “Hitoshura is a intentionally exclusive word used nowhere in the English localization and it turns normal discourse of a deep, layered series into an otaku-tinged embarrassment” and “Demi-fiend is a great translation of a term that originally means something akin to ‘human aberration’ anyway.” Hitoshurus Demialis is known to be treatable with gradual exposure to more open-minded, progressive discussion forums and its fans therein.
Friends don’t let friends “Hitoshura.” (Seriously, it makes you sound like a twat.) Reblog/repost if you believe Hitoshurus Demialis is a condition that can be eliminated with equal parts exposure, conviction, and revelation. Together, we can create a new world without constantly afflicted eyes.
Your pal in the apocalyptic unveilings,
I’m gonna give you an A+ for the amusing way you wrote this, but seriously. In the end I think you’re going to live with your eye-rolling, that Demialis is untreatable.
Because maybe it’s just what people got used to calling him or think it sounds better? Don’t go assuming everyone who does it is a dirty weaboo “long live nippon’s glorious culture die USA scum”.
Better than that, don’t be stupid enough as to be ashamed of what people might or not think about your jrpgs
It’s just a title
deal with it
I’m glad you enjoyed it nonetheless! No, I don’t think people are automatically “scum” for using it, but it’s more than just a title for a single character, it’s a very subtle way of advocating a particular tone or ethos to the community. In fact, I was driven to write this after seeing some other big community voices using the term exclusively. Judging from how I see it being used, it draws a clearly demarcated line that’s part self-righteous, part Japanophile (don’t deny that it’s not). Imagine a new fan trying to get a grasp on things and attempting to follow along with the group—what does he/she choose: what the game says or what the loudest fans say?
It gets to be a little tiring, when all you want to do is talk gods and demons without the otaku baggage that could potentially scare off other fans also into the series’ mythological content more than any other element. Essentially, I’m just returning the favor from the other side and speaking up for a portion of the fandom that thinks it just sounds dumb and, at worst, immature (I’m definitely not alone here).
I feel like I’m being implied as an otaku here because my friends and I have always referred to him as Hitoshura. Trust me. We’re far from it.
We certainly haven’t scared away anyone from our series nor have had people say we sound “dumb.” We’ve actually attracted a fair amount of people into it with our passion.
But if this is a major issue in the fandom, this makes me much more glad that I don’t have anything to do with it as a whole :/ Was kinda hoping this might be one majorly immune from the petty squabbles of most fandoms.
tl;dr will call him what I want kthnxbye
Well, if you aren’t an otaku, then why do you use it instead of Demi-fiend? Serious question.
And it’s not a huge issue by any means. However, it is indicative of certain clashes over attitude and perception within the fandom (surprise, that happens with everything). I’m just someone who loves Megami Tensei to death because it was the antithesis of most embarrassing otaku tropes, and I see this usage discrepancy as a continuous banner-waving and encroachment upon territory where I moved to avoid that type of thing.
Hence, really, the (heh, mostly) tongue-in-cheek tone of the original piece. Never stop using something you enjoy using. However, some people will say things for the wrong reasons and this was mostly aimed at those types.
Because I prefer it?
Preferring Japanese names does not an otaku make.
For someone who claims to live in Japan OP doesn’t seem to understand what the word “otaku” means. Preferring the original name for something doesn’t make someone an “otaku”. Likewise, with your attitude, I’m surprised you don’t refer to Megami Tensei/Shin Megami Tensei with it’s translated name, since surely using the Japanese makes someone an otaku weeaboo! … yet everyone does this.
The tone of all of your posts is so condescending I would be surprised if anyone took you seriously. Sure, I have run into people that refer to him as the Demi-Fiend, but there is no dimensional rift between two halves of the fandom because of these words. It takes about 3 seconds to go “oh, by Hitoshura I mean the Demi-Fiend”. It is not an issue whatsoever, and it is not poisoning the fandom in any way, unlike some other issues I won’t mention as they have nothing to do with SMTIII: Nocturne.
i always just assumed people used Hitoshura because it sounds more like a name than demi-fiend
in middle school my friend used to give me these huge lemons to eat because they were delicious and one time i was eating one and some idiot told me he’d give me ten bucks to take a huge bite and another kid added five so i got 15 american dollar for doing what i was already doing truly this is the land of opportunity
