But he isn't the only one after asterite, and he unexpectedly finds himself protecting the very hospital he sought to steal from. His show of power lands him a job as Commander of Core Security, forcing him to watch his every step as he tries to gain the trust hospital director Pendiah Hemera.

Though I am primarily an illustrator at the moment, I aspire to one day
make a living off of creating graphic novels. As you can see, my page is littered
with art from "Midwinter", which is the manga I'm producing with a small band of
awesome people called ReVision Studios :D I am the lead artist and
secondary writer for the project.

All commissions are closed, sorry guys!

if you need to contact me outside of DA, feel free to drop me an e-mail!

I have a Tumblr too: :)


Online store for Midwinter!

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 19, 2014, 7:03 AM

Hey everyone! Since you guys have been my followers since the beginning, I'm going to give you a head start and post the store here first.

We have plenty of stock for most of the items, but there are only 3 Starter Kits available because of the limited nature of our Keychains. The Kickstarter cleaned us out of most of them, and we were only left with one of each design. We aren't making more of these, so if you REALLY want one, this is it!


Only Paypal is accepted!

We do accept international orders, but I know shipping is pretty costly. :< Sorry guys. It should calculate it for you in checkout based on what option you choose.

If you're looking to do bulk orders of anything (Like 3+ booklets, 3+ posters, 5-8 buttons, or a combination) please contact us first. We can get you a better shipping rate and do the transaction outside the website.

LASTLY, if you're contemplating the booklet and are unsure if you want this or would rather wait for the full digital chapter (the booklet is only half), I'll be completely honest with you and say that our deadline for the chapter--as in we cannot miss this one--is early October... so we will be putting it up for sale during that month at the latest.

On the flip side, if you really just can't wait to read a bit of it and prefer having a hard copy, the booklet is a great option! So just decide what's right for you. :)

P.S. since it's the weekend, orders won't be shipping out until Monday or Tuesday, just to give you a heads up!

Thank you so much for the watch! It's a little embarrassing having a professional watch me cause I'm still an amateur... but I really appreciate it! 
Deus-Nocte Featured By Owner May 29, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Oh pfft, don't be embarrassed! I'd say you're beyond an amateur, and I'm more than happy to watch a developing artist :heart: Thanks for the watch back!

(p.s. what's your icon of? I feel like I recognize it, but can't place it XD; )
Coco-Munchie Featured By Owner May 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Don't mention it! Your art is wonderful, I hope I can be as good as you someday!

And my icon is the pokemon joltik, it's one of my favorites cause it's so cute ><
Deus-Nocte Featured By Owner May 30, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Aw, well thank you!

I see! I haven't been able to play many of the newer pokemon games, so I guess that's why I didn't recognize it. :> I figured it was either a pokemon or digimon though, just wasn't sure which xD Definitely a cutie though <3

Does your comic come out yet?
I'd really love to read it. :heart:
Deus-Nocte Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Not yet, unfortunately! The first chapter was supposed to come out last month, but I've been terribly burned out for awhile. We're making progress, but I don't think it'll come until March at this point @_@ (plus we're working on some Kickstarter stuff!) Sorry about that. I'll make a big announcement when it is available though~

Lady-Manson Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
I found you! Thanks for the commission you did for me... the last one you did at nebkon! I wasn't able to thank you properly, but your work is awesome and I loved it very much. Hope to see you guys next year, definitely will buy your comic next time and probably commission something else, but with more time. X3

No problem! I'm SO glad you liked it! :D I had fun drawing him~ I tried to fit in the dragon wing(s), but it didn't fit well into the composition, so I am sorry that I couldn't D:

We'll definitely be there next year though, I would love it if you stopped by! c:

I'm the creator of Waldo that ~Lady-Manson commissioned fanart from you and I absolutely LOVED IT!! I think he looked perfectly fine and you have no idea how hard I laughed at his expression. You got it SPOT ON.
