--------------------------*!PLEASE READ!*--------------------------
If you want to use one of my sigs or post one of my wallpapers on a site, then PLEASE CREDIT!

Add a link to the image or to my profile here.
Even a simple "made by umi-no-mizu on deviantart" is also really cool.


Due to internet and computer issues, requests are delayed. May be weeks to months before I can get to them.

Giving me renders or at least render-able images is sure-fired way of letting me get the request done quickly
(making me look for images makes the process take foorrreeeevverr)
Larger image = more likely to get larger wallpaper

*!Note!* if you want to request larger resolutions of existing wallpapers, I have no way of scaling the wallpaper up other than remaking it from scratch so therefore:
- It will look different
- It may take me a while to figure out wtf I did on the original (esp if I lost the .pdf file)
- Sometimes the renders are simply not large enough (so I won't be able to remake it)

--------------------------About me--------------------------

I'm a 23 year old marine biologist by trade, currently doing a masters degree
I am a Canadian currently studying in Australia
I am usually busy with stuff so I go on hiatus.... a lot

If you couldn't tell by my gallery, I am quite obsessed with anime and manga
My favourite series include basically what I make wallpapers of.
Notable favourites that will always have my love inclue: Durarara, Shingeki no Kyojin, Mushishi, Shiki, Tokyo Ghoul, Gangsta., HunterxHunter, Hatenkou Yuugi, Inu x Boku SS, K project, Shinsekai Yori, Eden of the East, xxxHoLiC, and Tsubasa R.C.

Favourite music is almost entirely Japanese at this point with a dash of Korean boy-band thrown in for the mix.
I listen to mostly male vocalist stuff such as Gackt, Bump of Chicken, Suga Shikao, Mucc, Plastic Tree etc. I also have been becoming increasingly obsessed with the Utaite world. GigaP, Bun, and Glutamine are my favourites there.

I like all kinds of art. Due to my afflictions, I tend to favour art with characters I love or with creatures from the ocean (I'm a marine biologist and also very much in love with all things in the ocean).

I've been using photoshop since May 2010. Basically self-taught myself how to use it with some competence through sig tutorials but I also have about 3 years of high school art classes under my belt. I enjoy working with any media, although oil paint, acrylic paint and mixed media are my favourites.

I do digital art solely because it's cheaper, cleaner, and has a back button.

I used to do a lot of signature/banner work as I used to spend a lot of time on the forums, now however I focus on wallpapers. Most I basically made just so I could use them, some are requested, 99% involve anime males that I find vaguely attractive or the render was super kickass.

Occasionally you will get some doodles of usually ocean-related stuff that I made as icons for other websites or for a t-shirt or something.
Bit of an update, I have been "working" on my masters thesis which is why I have been fairly devoid from most internet worlds. By working I also mean that I have been putting off working by playing minecraft. So. Much. Minecraft. 1.9 update made it into a new game. A game which I enjoyed playing. Especially after spending 200 or so hours on Stardew Valley and having a hankering for building things.... *cough*

Now there are 7 days until my thesis is due.... only have a bit left! just have to write the introduction, methods, results, discussion, and conclusion! practically almost finished! hahaha. Degree here I come!

In other news, I had a bit of a mental breakdown at the beginning of the year in which my depression and anxiety sorta reached its apex and things were reallll bad for me for a couple months. However, after getting some help, I no longer wish to make stupid permanent decisions, and I am happier than I have been in yeeeaaaaarrrsss. So there's that crisis avoided =D

Not much else to update on. Obviously requests are at a standstill. May get back to them after the thesis has been handed in, but I do have to find somewhere to live and move out and renew my visa and potentially book plane tickets and also get about 15 different licenses and qualifications so I can do my second masters degree.... so yeah may be busy for a while

I shall be back! Eventually
  • Listening to: Let Me Hear by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
  • Reading: Papers about zooplankton
  • Watching: Rooster Teeth people play D&D
  • Playing: Minecraft
  • Eating: Some sorta crackers I found in my backpack
  • Drinking: Teaaa
