Commissions

Commission for Pixel Art illustrations
The Lamb of Columbia by The-Other-User
Welcome to Candieland by The-Other-User
Toothiana The Tooth Fairy by The-Other-User
I am accepting commissions for pixel art based illustration. Before you ask me for commissions, please browse through my gallery first and take a look at my pixel artworks.

I will accept the following (except mature content):
- Fan arts.
- OC.

All commissions are fully colored.

Please note that the work will take time to be produced for I am a student and a musician. I will work when I am free from my own projects. The maximum amount of time I would need is 2 weeks but that depends on how complicated the requested commission is. I believe that the price I've given is within reason considering the amount of time needed and the quality of the work.

You've read the title. Here we go!

  1. The pen name, "The Other User" was a spin on the movie title name of 'The Other Guys' starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell. Initially, I used the name as my gamer tag for various games and since it's called "The OTHER User", I also started using it as a username on various websites. Before "The Other User", I was known as Kenjii L.O.T.D.
  2. A local cafe/restaurant was briefly named after my pen name. It was called The Other Cafe for 3 months before its changed to a family business name.
  3. My favorite color is red............like....my wardrobe is full of red shirts.
  4. Contrary to popular beliefs, I don't play much video games despite owning a seriously beefy laptop. I play games every now and then but I am a sucker for games like Garry's Mod, LittleBigPlanet, Minecraft and The Sims. Why? These games let me create stuff and I like to create stuff. I have a brain and an imagination. I exercise it.
  5. I am a fan of Emily The Strange.
  6. I am not much of an anime fan. I prefer cartoons (and I'm not talking about shows along the line of Simpsons, Family Guy and Archer. Although I love those shows too). Also, I cannot stand 'tsundere' characters.
  7. It took me over two years of convincement from my friends before I started watching One Piece and now it's my favorite on-going anime.
  8. Growing up as a kid, I improved my English by listening rather than reading. Basically, I grew up watching shows on TV without subtitles (if I can already understand the language). I also dislike dubs. I prefer watching stuff in its original format. Even if I had to read subtitles.
  9. Every now and then, I'd meet a local who is confused about my race and ethnicity. They either thought that I was mixed or a foreigner. They never mentioned anything specific but they're usually surprised to know that I am Malay. My opinion on this matter, it's all about how you were brought up and who you spend time with.
  10. I have sensitive skin. Cursed with a lot of allergies. Primarily peanuts and animal fur (especially cat's).
  11. I love cats.
  12. I have a pet turtle named Mikey. He's 9 years old. I used to have two turtles but the other one died two years ago because of sickness.
  13. I love graffitis. Especially, stencils. I worship the work of Banksy and JSP.
  14. I have defaced over 4 murals in the Graffiti park in Youth Park Penang over the last 2 years. I even snuck into Youth Park at 4am once with my friends to deface one of the walls. I usually target other small timers (who were students) that did mural paintings in the Graffiti park and kept away from the good pieces made by known artists that was painted there. My reason for defacing the walls, I find mural painting and graffiti to be two completely different type of street art to be exhibited in a 'graffiti park'. Also, I have a lot of spray cans and an interest in graffiti.
  15. My first ever pixel art was actually a poster color painting on a mounting board.
  16. My first ever digital pixel art was actually done in Mircosoft Excel.
  17. I am not an avid TV show fan either. I watch a few TV shows on and off. Some of these shows are, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Big Bang Theory, Sherlock, Community, and How I Met Your Mother. The only TV show I watch frequently is Mythbusters and CSI.
  18. My favorite superhero movie is The Rocketeer. My favorite animated movie is The Iron Giant.
  19. I prefer fantasy over sci-fi.
  20. I grew up as a loner. I don't have much friends. I was constantly kept at home by my parents. I talk to dolls & other inanimate objects, and myself more than I interact with real people. Even today, I sometimes paced around in my room talking to myself. I still have a kick ass childhood btw.

Enter The Intern


September is here and so is my internship. So far, I felt that my internship is pretty much impromptu. Things did not go the way I planned at all. Yes, partially it's my fault but for the rest of it, I think the world just genuinely hates me. As you may read in my previous journal entries in August (the first update), I said that I am going for internship some time soon but there is a story behind all of that and how it got me where I intern at today.

At the end of last semester, well, actually mid-last semester, I got the chance talked to Natalija from Piktochart about interning at her company during the Behance Portfolio Review Georgetown which she helped co-organized. I have met her previously before at an event similar to wREGA's Jack in The Box Georgetown which was held at Piktochart's office. I have also attended the Global Game Jam event in Penang earlier this year which was also held at the same venue. Piktochart is an amazing company. If you don't know what they do, they develop an info graphic app. Pretty much like PowerPoint but more flexibility. Apart from that, the company's office itself is pretty cool. Trust me, I spent a night there for Global Game Jam. It's the closest thing to Google's office in my opinion. The environment is pretty laid back. It didn't event feel like you're in a office. There is no cubicle here. There is a view out the window for everyone regardless of where you're stationed in the office. After about a week into my semester break, I applied for my internship at Piktochart. There was hardly any interview at this point. Just a test to see whether or not I can come up with a good design using their app. A test in which I failed. No surprise there for me actually. I have already explained my doubts as a designer in last month's update. I took the declination pretty well but what I didn't take very well was the sudden realization that I now have less than a week left to find a place to intern at. The whole process of me sending and replying emails to and from Piktochart took me a couple of weeks. I did in fact sent out other emails to other companies and firms regarding an internship the same time as I asked Piktochart but unfortunately for me, no one else replied my emails except Piktochart which to me, at the time, seems the only possible employer (the other companies didn't put direct contact number on their job listings profiles).

So there I was, a week away from when I am to start my internship with no where to go. To make matters worse, my parents had just paid the fees needed for this semester so I can go for my internship (don't ask why I need to pay to go for internship) on the same morning I received the decline from Piktochart's design team. For once in along time, I lost my cool. Stress tolerance ain't tolerant anything at this point. I became desperate. Reached out to every other job listing websites both known and unknown. Called my seniors who graduated colleges a life time ago for pointers. Messaged anyone I knew who worked in the industry to see if they can help a brother out. And that person turns out to be...

Chun Woei


Yes. My former lecturer. He is absolutely the last person I would go to if I needed help with anything regarding design. Especially if it concerns with internship. I don't really ever want to bother this guy, the one guy who practically knows everybody in the industry. I don't like finding myself relying on this guy's connection and influence. I feel like a leech. Regardless, I was desperate and holy crap. The amount of weight lifted off my chest that morning when he replied to my message regarding my predicament. I was so relieved. Also, I was actually really happy to be working with him. He's cool. He's always the one lecturer who is on your list of "Cool lecturers" and he is on top of that list. Despite being known in the industry (he's a pretty big deal. no pun intended), he is the chillest person I knew.

Right now, I'm already working on a project with him for my internship. Even better, the project is for one of my favorite client and friends, S.I.C.K. I have worked with this band before (also, I am genuinely a fan of their music) and I have known them ever since I moved to Penang. Outside of the internship, I am also working with their drummer, Kevin Liew, who has recently formed a new band called "Write Me Dead". Kevin was previously in a band called "Past-Times and Tragedies". I'm helping him design his first album for Write Me Dead and I've already gotten his approval for it (I've managed to meet up with him and the rest of S.I.C.K recently and hanged out).

I'll end my journal entry here for now. More updates to come for this month.
