|This is a collection of the commissions of Reize Seatlan, my main OC.|
Star Chaser Story: Ch. 1 - Humble BeginningIt was a nice, warm sunny day at a small village completely surrounded by the expansive forest. This quaint village, Ilesia, was cut off from the rest of the world; the sight of towns or even cities was likely hundreds of miles away. Ilesia was likely never placed on the maps because it was so small, leaving it in obscurity.Star Chaser Story: Ch. 1 - Humble Beginning by Seizui
The tiny village had several houses made of hard wood, each with a similar structure. Everyone within the village knew each other, both child and adult alike. Those who would leave were those who strived to explore the larger lands.
Emerging from one of the houses was a long-haired man in his forties. His hair was a bit unkept, yet despite his age, there was a bit of youthful handsomeness. He wore a leather vest over his short-sleeved shirt with cargo pants and hiking boots. While he glanced around the village, he gave a frown.
"Reize! Where are you?!" Resting a hand over his eyes, the man sighed. "That boy..."
The outskirts of the village were a short distance awa

Desperate and frantic cries of children pierced the air as a crisis besieged the small village, a place that was normally safe from invading trespassers. The invader was a four-legged beast roughly the size of a man. It was a large wolf that snuck through the guards at the entrance of the village, who were occupied with its brethren that attempted to join it in the hunt. With the men out in the woods to hunt and the women assisting with the catches for dinner, an opportunity was presented for the wolves to seize the prey left behind. Although the guardsmen could hear the cries of the children, the wolves blocked their path.
"Out of the way," roared the middle-aged guard with a staff. As he swung the staff with great strength, the wolf charged through and tackled the man to the ground. The other guard moved to spear the pouncing wolf, but its partner snapped its jaws against the long end, pulling the guard in a tug-of-war.
Seeing that the pack had the guard

"That pendant you have... it is a precious artifact. I am afraid that I cannot give you the details, its secrets are what you must learn about for yourself. Only then will you appreciate it. I warn: protect it, for there are men who will seek it for greedy ends. That was why We entrusted it to your father... and your mother."
"W-wait! What do you--- nnggh..."
"...You wished for an adventure, didn't you? ...Perhaps this is your chance."

His lids opened, everything was a blur, briefly blinded by an intense ray of light. When his vision became clearer, the boy could see fresh green grass and the sight of daylight's blue sky. He found himself lying on the ground, turning over to push himself up. As he stood, the boy stared at his surroundings. The path was clear; tall, thin trees were spread through the forest, leaving a somewhat paved path light of crushed grass, likely si
How long have you been on DeviantArt? Sweet Jesus, 10 years. I only realized this looking at my info. Hahahhaa. That is rather funny.
What does your username mean? "Seizui" is "spirit" or "kernel" in Japanese. I remember looking this up back when I was 13 years old and decided to keep that as my alias. It has been the alias that I've stuck with for years.
Describe yourself in three words. Madman, Ambitious, Dedicated.
Are you left or right handed? Right. If I tried left, it would result in sad times.
What was your first deviation? Well, my first deviation is an artwork that I did back in 2003. It would be my near last artwork that I'd ever do. I originally thought I would be a good artist when I was 5-6, but that dream slowly kinda got quashed. So, I decided to get my point across through other means.
What is your favourite type of art to create? ...Eh, hard to say. I have always been the idea man. I have attempted to draw, but my last time in 2003 is why I have thrown in the towel. As I have decided to try my hand at writing, I look back at my previous Deviations and I can only grimace. However, I am the idea man, but it just takes a while to organize everything and put it into place. Perhaps I am more of a director. However, I want to be able to do things for myself, so I may try my hand at spriting, 8-bit style, anyway. Something easy.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Drawing. I would likely be able to do my own art rather than have to rely on others to do it for me.
What was your first favourite? Let's see.... It looks like this was my first commission that I had done for Reize. I hired long ago and it came out to this. Ahaha, this was back when Reize was supposed to be a Final Fantasy Tactics Advance character. Tarot Mage. The whole Law Card deal inspired the idea. Maybe the Cardcaptor Sakura at the process.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Video-game related artwork. I have been big on the Illusion of Gaia fanart, more than most. However, I will snag and awesome Megaman artwork.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Ugh, it is difficult to choose. On one hand, has done a good job on capturing the feel that I have had for Reize with her feel-good type setting. The sketches she did captured a feel that I enjoyed and miss hiring her for. On the other hand has impressed me with her style and humor. I could tell her about my characters and trust her to capture the feel of them. I've enjoyed hiring her a lot recently.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I supposed that I started doing commissions for Reize Seatlan at places that I've roleplayed at. The design that I had of him, looking back, had been pretty boring. However, I randomly hired to do artwork of the character just out of randomness. Jakuu has actually changed the perception that I had of him. Heck, I remember hiring Jakuu to do expressions for the character. I honestly did not expect much to be done besides normal expressions. However, what stood out to me was that he incorporated this ahoge(antenna hair) into it. I don't think that the ahoge was really part of his original design. However, I took what he gave me and ran with it. It added a new depth to the character in an entertaining way. It felt like something I wanted to handle. I wanted something light-hearted and amusing. So, Jakuu gave me a defining personality to run with.
However, is an interesting tale. Back in 2007, when I was deployed to Iraq, facing indirect fire with mortars daily, I remember I was part of the Tales of Forums when Namco US hosted the server(RIP). I wanted to get a spritework of Reize, promising payment. sent me a spritesheet for free, without payment required. It gave me a bit of comfort. I think I had a close call a day before after a mortar almost hit our barracks. So, it was a wonderful gesture. Now, here comes 2012, when and I attempted to deal with dA-related RP. Oh lord, he and I felt out of place because majority of the other RPers were below 18. I felt like Chris Hansen was just waiting... Christ. Anyway, was one of the few folks of the older group. I soon discovered he was the person that did the sprite for him. Enter today, is one of the closest friends that I have with and I would do anything for them both. I love them both. I prefer to confide with them moreso than any other people.
And god, have and I been through some shit together for 11 years. Man. It has been that long since we have been friends. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
Both and have given me the strength to continue my crazy endeavors. They often serve as my sanity check at the same time, especially . .... Sometimes, I may forego that sanity check.
Chaos for life, mother fuckers. CHAOS SIII--DEEEE!
What are your preferred tools to create art? Computer. I type my stuff out.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? I suppose it may be a random moment in my travel or at work. I'll get a burst of inspiration to handle a narrative. That narrative ends up being bounced around with my friends for sanity check.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? None. I don't do too much with deviantart other than hire artists that interest me. I am not necessarily part of the community, at least, I don't think. I don't have much to contribute other than funds for when I hire folks.
(DeviantID picture is done by . So, visit his page!)|
I am not an artist, but someone who commissions artwork.
Llamas and other crap are worthless as shit to me, so don't expect one from me.

|This is the list of artists that have earned my contempt due to communication problems and overall ignoring the commissioner. So, you can hire them under your discretion. I don't care. Just don't say that I didn't warn you. (Updated CAO 20 DEC 13) |
mazjojo: There is a difference between artistic liberty and screwing up the character. He has done this twice and looking at the one with Reize annoys the crap out of me. Not only that, but did not get previews to prevent such a travesty. This violates the fact of 'If it is not your character, you are not to change what he looks like to ensure that the character design integrity remains intact'. The biggest issue with him was the yearly wait for a commission, forcing me to change it, and wait another year. Hired 2009 for group pic, sketch came in 2010. The purpose for the pic was moot, so I asked for money back. He was unable to provide the money back . New commission, another year. No communication, no nothing.
kinly: Took the money and never did the artwork. His poor friend Watou had to give the money back that he took from people and disappeared into nothing.
ryuuen: Did other stuff except for the commission.
tooaya: Took too long and did not inform me that the commission was finished.
JDarnell:Took too long even get the commission done with no real update on progress. Good artist, but bad with service to her customers as far as communications go.
OverlordJC: 2 month wait, no update whatsoever. Not only that, but when it was completed, I was not informed and learned of this from another person. He also failed to deliver the high-res version via e-mail after I gave him the information.
Ferisae: This one saddens me a lot. I was hoping to like this as a commissioner. However, I waited from January for this and it was nearing the end of August. Got my refund completed 25 SEP 12. As much as I liked the artist, unfortunately, the unreliability is a fact.
Nefis Good lord, looking at one of the pictures, it was never completed and it even took long to get that without much real update.
Lo-wah Hired on 22 MAR 12, received picture 31 DEC. No preview updates in-between and wondered where they went. Granted, artist made irresponsible mistakes due to personal problems. However, this is considered a consequence of that. Overall, this has been a valuable lesson as I have had many unreliable artists as of late.
shinjyu Hired on 2 JAN 11, finished 16 FEB 13. ...I don't know what to say. This is one artist that I enjoyed the most and she had been reliable. But since this last one. I don't know now. :/
Riza23 Hired on TBD, finished Ahahahaa. ...More later when I care to finish this.
