Welcome

I'm Zack [a.k.a. Zakulf] and I create various types of (fan) artwork that not many people may be drawing. Drawing is my life essence along with the people I surround myself with, especially my husband, Kay [a.k.a. Ragemerize]. I've learned a lot in my life and the result is what developed me the way I am; I'm very open minded and love it to meet like-minded people.

Don't be afraid to approach me ♥

30-Day OTP challenge, 2018

One of the first times I tried something new: The OTP Challenge. The characters are the protagonists, Yu Narukami [a.k.a. Seta Souji] and Minato Arisato [a.k.a. Makoto Yuki] from Persona Q and Persona 3 and 4. The characters not only look good together, they also work good together. In the official Persona Q game's manga (Persona 4 side) they are selected as the perfect couple according to Yu's taste. He also openly confessed to be bisexual.

It left quite the impression on me and the thought of seeing the two together warms the my cold heart on different levels. This challenge isn't done yet, there will be more art following. I made it to day #17: Spooning and it was last done in December, 2018. I have applied different styles and techniques to experiment with the result and for personal improvement.

I will be finishing this.

#protagshippingweek - 22-29 July, 2018

It's my first time attending a specific event for a selected couple. In this case I've picked the same couple as above; Yu and Minato (My preferred names) The interesting thing about the event is that it started at my birthday (22nd of July) but I had a horrible cold that day which is why the quality is clearly lower than that of the others. The event went for 8 days, every day had a different theme. It was pretty exhausting to finish a work per day, no matter what.

This event was organized @ Tumblr.

30-Day OTP challenge, 2019

Because I slipped back to the Maplestory fandom, but especially these specific two; Phantom and Luminous and their interesting dynamics. They ARE another special OTP to both me and Kay. The pair must be drawn! Even with one challenge still ongoing, I'll start this one as well and finish it all the way to the bitter end! Have faith in me! I will not fall!

About

I enjoy drawing (fan)artwork of the things I like. I do it for myself, my husband and people like you. I hope to inspire other artists and non-artists with the things my drawings may represent or the general style of it alone. I often come across rare pairings that barely anyone makes art of and mass produce stuff for the sake of fandom and love! I’m also the type that draws mature artwork rather carelessly. I have an extra blog for it on Twitter. Most of it is Yaoi (MxM)
Don't like it? Simply avoid it! Thank you!~

Cosplay

I love wearing costumes and interacting with people like the character would (roleplaying) it's a fun and creative hobby that keeps busy minds away from the stress of day-to-day life. It refreshes the mind and makes people enthusiastic. Not only is the costume, wig and make up a challenge, to find the right characters that fit both your looks and personality is a lot of fun.

I personally prefer to keep it as natural as I manage - I wish not to adjust too much that makes it look artificial, I want it to feel "true". Characters you can relate with, ones you understand the most and don't just "look good" adds more to the challenge. I don't want to feel out of place in the wrong costume with an unfitting personality. I once did it for fun but it felt terrible. I prefer not to experience it again and luckily I have it in my hands.

Kay (Ragemerize) and I put a lot of effort in our costumes. He does most of the sewing by machine, while I did the tiny details by hand that requires precision work.

Our always divide the tasks that fit our qualities and make a perfect team. I do most of the painting, tiny details, decoration and the styling/adjustment/cutting of the wigs while he does the bigger parts of the costume, like weapons, hats, armor and other accessories like bags. Without him, none of the great costumes would come to reality. On rare occasions we order our costumes online as they are either too difficult or simple for our own effort.

Maplestory Test shooting,
February 2019

Credit to @Ragemerize (Kay) for his amazing work on the sewing work. He did the base shape of the hat, costumes and accessories, while I did the tiny details, like painting jobs and wigs.

He makes a wonderful Luminous (the guy with the medium dark gray hair) while I'm his mere addition as the annoying Phantom thief with the dark blond hair and the fancy outfit. His personality is very similar to mine and so is Luminous similar to that of Kay. We're a married couple who end up bickering as much as the two do that makes people feel awkward every now and then. Hahahah! Aren't we perfect for each other?!

This photoshoot is to celebrate the fact that I've finally finished my part of the cosplay and that we are both complete. I will still be looking for an alternative to the gloves which are a little on the broad side, it is impossible to find fitting rings for these. Though, what to expect from quality leather, right?~

The characters Phantom and Luminous belong to the MMORPG called Maplestory

Contact

Feel free to leave me a message wherever! Unlike the way I might appear, I’m a pretty friendly and an open-minded guy! I love chatting about the things we might have in common! I prefer having old fashioned chats in which people speak in proper sentences in which we share things, enjoy things together and build a friendship around it. I actually long for a nice conversation and true friendship~

I'm not the MEME type of person but they do make me laugh if they're applied well.
I'll be your old fashioned 90's friend. That knows nothing about today's trends and hashtags.
