I made a Patreon page at www.patreon.com/shilin! Your support will help me spend less time doing non-art stuff in order to maintain a living, and more time on actually creating more art, something I’ve been having an increasingly hard time fighting towards.

I am offering high-res flat images, layered psds, processes and more, things that used to be impossible to obtain from me. If there are perks you would like me to offer, feel free to suggest them!

Thanks so much for your support ;-;

shilin.storenvy.com

  • Carciphona volume 1 sold out not long ago, and I’ve finally restocked those this week!
  • Shipping prices lowered as promised in the past month!

I’ve been working on figuring out a new shipping company last month, and I am ready (I think LOL MAYBE) to switch over! Shipping has always been the bane of my shop because I’m in Canada. I’ve got tons of questions about it in the past year that range from confused to outraged. But it’s in my best interest to find ways to lower shipping prices, because while some people are in such disbelief that Canadian shipping can be that bad (it can) might even think that I bloat shipping prices to make more money, high shipping costs actually makes me lose business because SURPRISE, no one wants to buy overpriced things.

The new company ships through USPS which means I can lower shipping prices to USA by as much as 70% and international shipping for as much as 50%. I can’t set storenvy up for international buyers to benefit from buying individual Carciphona books, but when it comes to bundles, $29 for 5 books is a lot more reasonable than a whopping $60.

Shilin’s Complete works:

  • USA shipping: $30 $8
  • International shipping: $60 $28

Carciphona books

  • USA shipping: $8-20 for 1-4 books $7 flat rate even if you order 50 books
  • International shipping: Storenvy prevents me from doing weird increments so rates remain unchanged ($40 for 4 books), but you can save on shipping by getting the bundle instead!

Art books

  • USA shipping: $10 each $6 and $1 for every additional book
  • International shipping: Storenvy prevents me from doing weird increments so rates remain unchanged ($20), but you can save on shipping by getting the bundle instead!

Thank you for your support and have a good day:D

Happy new year!

Thu Jan 8, 2015, 5:59 PM





It's a little late post here, but here's a sketch I did for new years (: Thank you guys for your support through 2014!

I've had a rough year, especially in the first half. Life is not the same this year, and for someone who has been used to being able to dedicate 100% of her time to work and nothing else, challenging family relationship strains and adapting to life with a girlfriend was difficult--even if it was a good change and great learning experience. I'm not nearly as prolific as before, and sometimes I even find it difficult to be as creative as before, because I can no longer afford to think about my work as much. In contrast, I learned a lot more about taking care of others and myself, even if what I learned was how little I know about taking care of others and myself. Instead of contemplating my story and characters, I thought more about how hard it is to be kind and understanding. I tried really hard to make myself be more compassionate; my aloof nature made it so that very little affected me and made it hard for me to believe that I need to ache over things not about myself, but I feel like if ever so slightly, that has changed.

I don't have anything great planned in 2015 except to keep going, but whatever I end up creating in the future, I hope it will continue to be enjoyable and motivating for you.

Happy New Year!

Intuos Pro Raffle!

Sat Nov 8, 2014, 4:18 PM



update: raffle is now closed! thanks everyone for participating and good luck in the draw :D



I see you eying that Intuos Pro up there (: good news for you, it could be yours, among other prizes to be won in my store’s gift season raffle!
 

DID SOMEBODY SAY PRIZES???? ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ


1 winner will be chosen through random.org at the end of the event and win an Intuos5 touch medium ($400 value) I was able to work with Wacom to bring you an extra tablet prize to double your chances of winning! TWO winners will be chosen through random.org at the end of the event and each win an Intuos Pro medium ($400 value) with free shipping!

 

OH REALLY? WHAT IS THIS? HOW DO I ENTER? (ↀДↀ)✧


From today until December 19, I am holding a raffle at my store, shilin.storenvy.com, offering a tablet prize out of my own pockets as a way to thank my loyal followers and to hopefully make some people’s holiday season a little more amazing. There are 2 ways to enter:

1. Buy something at shilin.storenvy.com! Every $15 in purchases (excluding shipping) = 1 entry. eg: buying an artbook will net you 2 entries. Don’t want to pay shipping? 5 posters = FREE worldwide shipping plus a bonus entry!

  • +1 BONUS entry for purchases over $70
  • +3 BONUS entries if you refer someone else to enter the raffle! Get that person to put “referred by” YOUR order number (so I know you bought something and qualify!) in their order’s message to seller field to qualify, like this!

    goddamnitjames

2. Can’t buy stuff yourself? Refer someone to buy something, and have that person put “referred by” your name and e-mail in the message to seller field to qualify. Every 2 referrals this way gives you 1 entry! (gotta be a bit more fair to someone else paying for their entry while you pay nothing now :D )

 

WAIT BUT I HAS QUESTION ヽ(ಠ益ಠ)ノ


Who can enter?
Anybody anywhere in the world!

How do I make sure I have the correct amount of entries/my entries went through?
Feel free to e-mail me with your name, e-mail and/or order number and I’ll tell you how many entries you have!

I remember a previous facebook post saying there were more prizes to choose from! D:
Because now that I actually have a tablet to give away, (I was going to buy one if the winner chose it) I don’t want to risk having to give an expensive tablet to someone who doesn’t want one, so I decided to make this raffle solely for the tablet! Maybe next time I will offer more prizes ^^

The shipping costs in your store is so high ): what is the most efficient way to enter?
Shipping costs don’t give you any entries, so the best way to enter is to buy posters! Buy 5 or more posters with some friends to get FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING, plus a BONUS entry for purchases over $70, for a total of 6 entries. 2 more bonus entries can be earned if you refer a friend!

I can’t afford anything ): can I still enter?
You can earn 1 entry per 2 referrals you make! simply ask them to put “referred by” your name and e-mail address in the message to seller field when they checkout. 

What is the cheapest way to enter?

6 postcards will net you 1 entry and the cheapest shipping price out of the entire store.

Which items in the store qualify?
All available items in the store qualify, including both works by myself and by Zinganza!

- - -

Have more questions? tweet me at okolnir, send me a private ask, or e-mail me at shilin at shilin dot net!

Good luck everyone, and thank you for your continued support of my endeavours. Without you I would not be able to continue to create art like I do now.

Otakuthon @ guests area #503

Sun Aug 17, 2014, 7:06 PM







I’m gonna be at Otakuthon in Montreal from August 22 to 24 (next weekend at the Palais des Congres de Montreal! I’ll be in the guests area on the far right side of the hall along the wall, the opposite end of the entrance, next to the artist alley. I don’t know which table I’m at yet and I don’t know if I’ll find out soon enough before I leave to make a post?? but ALL THE GUESTS ARE IN ONE STRAIGHT LINE you can’t miss me if you just walk down and look… hopefully…………. I’ll be at table 503 right next to the exit, and My friend Orpheelin will be at 520!

As a guest, I will also be doing a PANEL with Orpheelin!! this will be the first panel I’ve ever done at a con and I’m scared no one is going to be there since the panel title is set to “Q&A with International Comickers" which is really vague and ambiguous, So please come help make it so that we won’t be talking to like 3 people for 40 minutes hahaha orz

Orpheelin and I will both talk briefly about ourselves and our careers and how we led up to it, and then as the title suggests, we’ll be taking questions and answering them. So if you’re too scared to ask me something one on one because you’re worried that I’ll be arrogant and shit on you and get away with it for some reason, you can bring your questions to the panel instead!

Anyway the panel will be on Friday at 7pm at Conférence 6! see you there :D

Anime North at Comic Market!

Mon May 19, 2014, 10:14 AM



My gf, friends and I will all be at Anime North this weekend at Comic Market!! I’ve mentioned before I am at the pro plaza instead but apparently pro plaza is just tables inside the comic market this year HAHA… we’ll be at the far back island (entrance I believe is at the top of this map) at PP08, G5 and G6, pls don’t forget about us ;v;

I will also be selling some riven prints through the art show store, Gallery Momiji! because pro plaza forbids me from selling fanart and I had promised that I will sell Riven at AN, I put my riven prints with the gallery store (basically a print shop) instead at the art show. So if you’re looking for one, go into Gallery Momiji (should be located near the comic market) and look for the gallery store!

TCAF @ table 252!

Tue May 6, 2014, 10:30 AM



I'll be at Toronto Comic Arts Festival on Saturday and Sunday on the second floor, at table 252! TCAF is held at the Toronto Reference Library at Yonge and Bloor, it's FREE for everyone and has lots of amazing people like Jayd of littlefoolery, Gigi D.G. of Cucumber Quest, Amei Zhao of Nameless and the Scientist and more!! If you're in the area, hop on the subway and come walk around then maybe have a night out downtown afterwards or something for the weekend :D I'll be selling my books mainly, but I will bring some prints too if anyone wants to pick up anything! I won't be able to sell fanart at Anime North due to being in the Pro Plaza so if you wanted to buy my fanart (namely riven) or art book there, you will have to wait until Fan Expo or come to TCAF this weekend for it.

I should be right in front of the entrance in the salon on the 2nd floor according to this map, with a dinky 3ft table : D

In other news, sorry Carciphona volume 4 is taking so long to be released this year ;-; On top of the completion delays, because the dates got pushed so close to Lunar New Year, my printer has a large amount of orders to fill and my books are taking longer than usual to print. I'm so sad that I said it'd be available in a month's time for like 2 months now and I still can't put up preorders yet. But I've split up my orders (new books and reprints) to different printing companies, and the plan is to have them all printed before Lunar New Year (during which all companies go on a 1 week holiday). If I can get them shipped out before the holiday, they should arrive at the beginning of march. If not, they'd probably be here for April. RIDICULOUS RIGHT?? I'm totally not printing this time of the year again LMAO... so preorders will most likely go up in Feb or March!!

I am also going to Sakura Con (I think??? I haven't heard from them yet) and Toronto Comicon, and will most likely have copies there. So if you're going, you will likely be able to get a copy from the con before I can even mail out preorders :D

As you may already know, I've been working for the past few months on volume 4 of my manga Carciphona, and I'm finally about 15 pages away from finishing inking all 150 pages!! Then after that I have to tone like 60 pages, draw the cover and put it together as a book haha... ha... that's why I haven't had the time to draw any new drawings and I miss it so much ;_;

Here are some WIPs! boring snapshots because no spoilers

I know of animethon, otafest, and aikon. I understand that aikon is small and I've been to it once, and I want to know if anyone can give me some information about the other two conventions and how the artist alleys in the 3 of them compare. Thanks in advance for your advice!
