For :iconboys-exchange:

Dear Santa,

I'm very sorry that my refs are tremendously old (2006-2009), so my sincerest apologies if they give you any trouble. Also, if you'd rather just draw one character instead of two, I'd be perfectly happy with just one and any one!

I would like to invite you to join my art book contest that I'm hosting in my group, :iconforever-nintendo: . The contest is "The Game and the Gamer Contest" and will consist of three separate themes: redesign, games playing games and project yourself. Each theme will have a separate deadline, here are the deadlines: October 25thNovember 14th and December 5th. Ultimately, the best entries will be made into an art book. There will be big prizes given to the contest's victor and to the runner ups. Will it be you? Join and submit an entry and we'll find out.
Here's a link to the contest journal:

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:

Umm, can you draw Calem and Serena kissing each other?
ruina Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014   General Artist
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. ;;
