-and a belated Merry Christmas.

2013 was very unproductive for me but I hope the rest of you had a good run. I somehow manage to miss the mark on all my goals last year. No game out, didn't graduate on time, still haven't illustrated for a children's book, and barely did any commissions. This year, I have to meet all the goals I missed out on - minus the graduation. That will be my new years resolution. 


If anyone wants to hire me for a game or project please send me a message. I really want to get something out there.

Over the past year, my laptop had been suffering from one of the most dreaded windows-related malfunctions; The Blue Screen of Death. My ever-dwindling funds and severe distaste for leaving my house prevented me from seeking aid for my metallic friend. Despite the valiant effort it put up these past few months, poor old Mr. Laptop finally dimmed it's lights for good. After 3 years of service as one of the best drawing partners I've ever had, Laptop now serves a new purpose - a very expensive paperweight. 

The death of my old friend is one of the many reasons why I haven't been very productive this month. It's quite difficult to use a graphic tablet without a computer. Another reason would be that while I was grieving, I was so consumed by depression that I finally got around to buying Pokemon X to cheer me up. Needless to say, the game has taken over my life. If anyone wants to be my friend, just add me: 0533-5477-0620

Because of my laptop's very timely passing, I manage to obtain a new partner. My laptop kicked the oil bucket a few days after my birthday. My father, out of the goodness of his heart, decided to find me a new friend to draw with - as a birthday gift. It may not be as pink as my late laptop, but what it lacks in color it sure does make up for in awesomeness. 

With my new laptop at hand, I can get right back to work. But... my 3DS keeps calling out to me. How can I possibly ignore the little guy? I'll get around to replying to orders and drawing again once I finish Pokemon X. 

Experimental art style give away.

Experimental art style
I have no idea what style I'm going to draw in nor what to draw. What I do know is that I want to try my hand at drawing something "different".


Lend me your OCs
Sadly, I'm all flushed out of creative juices and can't be bothered to even try and make an OC of my own at the moment. Care to lend a girl a hand? Just throw your OCs at my direction. If anything, it's a chance to get free art. How can you possibly say no to "Free"?


Apologies in advance
- To OCs I don't draw. It doesn't mean they're bad or even that I don't like them - I probably just can't think of a style to go with them. Whether or not I draw your OC, thanks for sharing!

Update 10/07/2013
Thanks so much to all of you who've volunteered their OCs so far! I can't wait to start having my wicked way with them - artistically, of course. I won't be able to draw till Saturday but I'll be tagging those of you who's OCs I draw when I post them. (Gotta love the new Mentions update). Feel free to post more till then!

I've been seeing them around a lot lately and I haven't the faintest idea what they're for. I've seen people bid on them and what ever they do or whatever they're for must be pretty awesome for people to want to pay.

Nothing can explain...

the amount of joy that I feel right now.

After years of backbreaking labor (to an artist, drawing is considered backbreaking labor [slouching can break your back]), I'm finally at the point where I can say that I am (almost) through with college!

Let me explain my (premature) burst of happiness.

I just finished the last day of what was supposed to be my last term. I'm speaking in hypothetical terms, not because I failed a subject, but because I made a crucial decision on my first day of my supposed last term. Because I never wanted to experience the kind of stress that I went through the term before, I took out one of the subjects that would definitely add stress to my term. My thesis class. Today, I'm thanking whatever spirit possessed me to extended a term. There was no way in hell I could have finished this term if I had to work on my thesis as well. Thankfully, I thoroughly enjoyed (and passed!) what was supposed to be my last term.

Some might be bummed to have to postpone their graduation for another term just for thesis, and I would probably be too if it wasn't for the fact that my thesis is something I've been wanting to do for YEARS. As some or none of you may know, my thesis project is actually my very first otome game in the making "Love at the Laundromat" (LATL). I've been itching to work on it all term but the amount of workload I needed to finish prevented me from even touching my project. From today onward, all I need to worry about is my thesis. That means that for the whole of my Christmas break and for the next three months of my legitimate last term will all be devoted to LATL. I swear, I have a goofy looking smile plastered on my face right now. I can finally stop worrying about everything else and finally just do what I love doing.

Because I had to rush the story of LATL to meet the school's deadlines, I've decided to rewrite everything from scratch. Whatever you may know or think you may know about the story is now most likely untrue. I've already finished the skeleton of Eli's route and so far I am very pleased with how things are going.

After at least two days of bumming, I'm going to start bombarding my twitter with updates. Once the story's done and it's time for art, I'll start flooding people's inboxes here on DA too.

Life is good.

Rebranding before it's branded

Sun Aug 12, 2012, 7:21 PM
Moustachio Studios is a very small group of individuals who enjoy nothing more than drawing, designing, and playing games. We don't have much to show for ourselves just yet but we are currently working on our very first project called "Love at the Laundromat". It's our first Ren'Py game but we have high hopes for it.

We used to be known as Nische Games but decided to branch out to more than just providing games. From now on, we also provide illustration and design services. Sorry for the indecisiveness. *A*

The site isn't complete yet but feel free to check in now and then. We're slowly working into putting everything together so there should be frequent updates.

Nische Games

Tue Jun 12, 2012, 4:40 AM
:iconneko-niki:, :iconmoirgane: and I started a small game development group a few weeks ago. It's called Nische Games. We have several project in the making but we've only publicly announced one of them, which is Love at the Laundromat.

Our main focus for now is in making visual novels and dating simulation games. We hope to make both commercial and free games once we have more time. We update every Saturday and we hope to have our first dating simulation game out by September.

We're new to all of this and are relatively non-existent. Someday soon, we'll need to start getting the name around. If it isn't too much trouble, it would be nice if people could support us by passing our name or news of our games around. If not that, then liking our facebook page with be a big help too.

OVER!
Freedom never felt so good!

Thanks to my long off break from commissions and expenditures for school, I'm left with little to no money again. This (and because I seriously want to draw) is the reason why I'm opening my commissions again. I don't have prices for the new styles/games yet, but I'll post them tomorrow. Same goes for my regular style.

Got home pretty late today though so I'm going to go get some much needed sleep.

If I...

Thank you to :iconowartemis: and :iconrollingmilk: for reporting this to me. :iconcuteswears: is apparently selling these works to people on her forum without my permission or without giving me credit for using my artwork as her base.

Back to Class and Commission Note

Wed Jan 4, 2012, 3:22 AM
1st day of school is almost over! Despite how much I dreaded my video production class, VIDPRD3 ends up being all about post-production; which is perfect! What I hate the most about video production is having to leave my house, borrow and carry heavy equipment, then find people willing to waste their afternoon acting. At least with post-production, all the hassle is over and I can do what I do best: sit in front of the computer for extended hours. Hopefully all my other classes smooth sailing as well.

I'm closing my Completed Commission slots for now while I take on a new project. I'm very excited about it and I pretty much crammed my seat-work just now to start working on it. After January, commissions will be closed completely.

I'll be attempting to do some animation some time soon so I won't have time for much anything else.  The idea for the new game actually stemmed from a discontinued series I made two years ago. I can't wait to start working on this. xD

I had been working on a project with Winter Wolves Games for a good part of the year. If I had to be honest, though I really loved working on this project, I feel really bad about how slow I was updating. I remember even taking a whole month hiatus of just to clean up the results of my procrastination in school. Because of my horrible time management, I only got to finish the last ending romance scene a few days ago. It feels amazing to have actually finished it, but  now I miss working on it. The completion of this projects is also another reason why I was happy enough to give a month of discounts. The game is still in development but when it comes out I hope that some of you will try it out.

Here are some of the characters:

There are loads of other games coming out soon too. You all should definitely check them out. Till then, there are several games already available on the site. There's even a trial version you could play before buying. If you guys love dating games as much as I do, you guys should seriously play these.
