Miraculous Ladybug: Marinette Doodles by Rice-Lily
Miraculous Ladybug: Marinette Doodles
I've found a new home in Paris. Marinette Dupain-Cheng is adorable =3= <3 I'm still learning how to draw her and get a feel for her personality. :ladybug: rvmp2 
Quick announcement. I've decided to close commissions until further notice. I could use the little "breather" to work on my personal projects for 2016. Of course, I will complete the request I have lined up. See you until then.

Hi everyone, long time no talk or activity, for that matter.

2015 is coming to a close and a lot has happened this year. Some good, some bad, and some on a more somber note. I'm finishing my first year of grad school and I've certainly learned a lot during the intense 15 weeks. So, let's start by addressing a few things for upcoming year.

New Print Shop!

Just in case you haven't seen my status updates on DA, I finally have a print shop! I've held off on doing prints until I found a service that I liked and easy for me to manage.

Currently available are my top Steven Universe fanworks and a few personal favorite Motorcity pieces. 
  • Steven Universe: Only a dream (speed paint) by Rice-Lily Steven Universe: Invader by Rice-Lily Steven Universe: Steven Fusions! by Rice-Lily Motorcity: Artist portriat by Rice-Lily Motorcity: The Scream by Rice-Lily
Please check out my humble print shop here!

I've also considering to join Patreon in the future. Still not sure what I would offer as rewards. Until then, keep an eye out for more information!


Due to the intensive workload I underwent these past 15 weeks, I will be limiting my client list to 3 Slots. Lesson learned, I don't like having my clients waiting months at a time for just one commission.

Please see my Commission Journal for Rates

Upcoming Projects in 2016

I miss doing comics. It'll always be my first love and I've been sitting on a few big projects for the past 2 years. I'm currently writing a script for the first story while drawing the pages simultaneously with the advisory of hino-kit. There's a much bigger project looming on the back burners that I'm hoping to figure out a plot solid enough to get it on its feet.

Basically, that's just more writing and second guessing for me to do on top of everything else. I hope these comics would help reinforce my self-discipline to keep progressing and honing my crafts as well as be my saving grace from stress.

Look out for more news in the status updates coming soon in 2016!
