Storenvy re-opened!

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 11, 2014, 4:21 AM

At long last, I have reopened my Storenvy!

I’m terribly sorry for the long wait. I moved overseas last autumn and have been going back and forth between Tokyo and Kyoto, but I finally got the chance to sit down and research shipping methods and rates. One concern I do have is how long it would take for purchased items to arrive at their destinations, since I picked the fairly cheaper rates (you’d have to be crazy to pick the expensive EMS rates >.>;;; ).

I don’t have the Twilight Princess/Hero’s Shade poster up, because the entire stock sold out at Anime Expo this summer, and I have yet to find a printing shop in my area. :( Once I find a place, I’ll be sure to restock and make them available. In the meantime though, this print is available on my Society6, so you can still purchase it through there if you absolutely must buy it.

Thank you always for the support! :heart: :hug:

Hello, old fan of Serenian Century. Had lost the website after losing my computer, and wasn't able to follow you a couple years back due to not remembering the website or your name. Just by chance I was scrolling through some pictures I had saved on a external hard drive and found… this picture which had that it was by Ruina. So I googled it and found your dA by chance.  Sad to see that it doesn't look like you continued Serenian Century, though still worth finding you to subscribe to see any new works.

AAAAAAAA!! Thank you so much for finding me, for reading SC, and for following me again! :hug: I'm very sorry to say that SC is on an indefinite hiatus right now as I'm trying to rewrite it from scratch. :( I am making progress with the script though, so I'm hoping to get back into illustrating pages again soon. Once again, thank you so much for your support for SC and for following me! :heart:

Is this a commission? I don't take free requests.
Lacindra Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2014
Wouldnt this be the 2nd reboot?
ruina Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2014   General Artist
....Yes. Wow, you really must have stuck with SC for a while to know about that! I feel so bad... I'm so sorry. ;;

Oh my, what a varied gallery! ...Goodness, my "artists to commission" list is also starting to pile! Nonetheless, Seizui definitely knows his artists that have commissions available, and I will definitely add you to my list.

I look forward to working with you in the future!

Wow, thank you! Unfortunately, I'm really swamped with work right now, but I'll still be looking forward to hearing from you in the near future. :]
