I'm Kachu; nice ta meet ya! I'm not too shy & I'm rather fond of socializing :D So if you have something to say, feel free to leave a comment or send a note ^^

Art became an interest and hobby of mine around August 2013. Programming is my true passion that I plan on following but I'll always make a bit of room for art too <3 I love creating, expressing, and thinking of things; I tend to develop a strong attachment to things that inspire me X3

My personality type is ENFP-T

Hey <3 Here's a lil' sketch dump (and a mini life update). One of these is pretty old but I kept coming back to it to add more details. Also I'm applying to Digipen (almost finished my application) and hopefully pursuing a career in computer programming/game design. I know I've been slacking here on DA, there's no excuse really... anyhow, love ya guys. Oh yeah, also I'm a bad driver XD
Happy Thanksgiving day everyone! There's a lot of gratitude I have for my friends and family. Thank you all <3
I thought my 2 year anniversary was in 6 days... turns out, it was 4 days ago ^^" I totally thought it said July 16th.

Aaanyhow, I'm at work atm but I totally am going to do something! I'm thinking I'll make a post and some simple (probably chibi) art for it tonight, explaining the plans I have...

So far I'm thinking I'll have one of those standard DA raffle/contests(giving out a commission or two or three). On top of that I think I'll redo a few pieces of my art, whether old or just incomplete. And finally, I think I'd like to do a lil' shout out to some friends of mine on here ^^

If you have any requests/ideas/questions, please hit me up in the comments! :D I'm hoping to make this a cool event that's somewaht big (for my standards). As of now it's still in limbo though, subject to change and all that jazz.
I'm back from Comicon! I got some merch and I absolutely love it! I did a bit of art, I'll post that later (prob. just as an activity, but maybe in the 'sketchbook' category).

It's a folder on DA Stash since there's multiple pictures.

I also took a few cool pictures of cosplayers (wish I took more ;~;) but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to upload those since they have other people in them? But I dunno?
It's not often I'll update a journal and re-notify it... but it's basically a new journal. cx

Okay, first of all I'd like to thank the few people who joined! I'd also like to say sorry to two of my foreign friends cx Due to time zone differences they never saw the post about it but they honestly wanted to join and get some free art ^^

Now for the winners (no need to tag them again though cx), with a lil more details about my "commissions" Mystery Skulls Ghost Headbob Pony: Sunset Shimmer 

If you won, please send me a note with waht you would like.

1st place: StartledFlowerPony ~ "Full color w/ shading + details " 
2nd place: Whitespade "Lineart + details/chibi"
3rd place: Tommy2Swords 
"Lineart + details/chibi"
4th place: PonyPoet "Sketch"

General Stuff:

~I am a pony artist. If you'd like me to try to do something else I can try, but as of now I can't promise any sort of quality control so like... the results may not be so great ^^"~
~I'll try to get these done in a somewaht timely manner but like... I have a life and job I need to tend to, so don't expect them SUPER soon (esp. with the ATG), I'll try but yeah.~
~I might end up really liking your "commission" so like... if I do I might 'upgrade' you and add a little something~
~For 3rd place and up, if you'd prefer to substitute sketching in place of your prize, lemme know and we can work that out. ~


You should know waht a sketch is ^^ No need to explain hopefully?

Moving on... I'll be honest. I like sketching a lot and I can do it much faster than digital art. Just, go with something that sounds fair to you and I'll try to work with it. You can pick a few ponies you want or something? Or maybe just one pony but multiple shots? You tell me... unless you're substituting this since 3rd+, in which case you get more.

Lineart + details:

This is no color and no shading, Just a straight up black outline with some details, whether that's pony accessories or a something or other in the foreground.

You get one pony + a few items.


This is a more rushed/lazy (hopefully) chibi-esque art style with simple color but with no shading,

You also get one pony + a few items

Full color w/ shading + details:

This is... well, a nice drawing hopefully, something like Genedy, the gryphon I drew.

This one also has the most leeway, aside from sketching that is ^^ So like... don't be afraid to ask.
You get 1-2 ponies + some cool stuff for them if you want it.

Previous journal just in case you wanted it for some reason? And also a link to the entry, although it's too late if that wasn't obvious =P

I've been on DeviantArt for over 2 years now! I made an account July 6th, 2015... although I didn't submit any art until August? Aaanyhow, a lot of this is impromptu if I am to be honest. The index shows things I'm planning to do (with links when they're finished). If I think of something better I might change plans? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Such as maybe a mini ATG instead of a few redraws.

I'm on mobile. .. which really sucks, but I'll post the winners tonight and make it look nicer when I get home tomorrow.

StartledFlowerPony got 1st place <3
whitespade100 got 2nd place ^^
Tommy2Swords got 3rd place =3
PonyPoet21 got 4th place :D

Congrats to those who joined ^^ You all won because literally only you guys joined cx

Happy birthday! I hope everything is alright? 
Kachu-AppleKiwi Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you! <3 And yeah, things are going alright. I meant to upload some art but it's only a sketch so I ended up not X3 I'm thinking I might just upload a handful of sketches in one 'update' post though? Sorry about the super late reply, I got called into work today X3

Thanks for the fav! Your art is cute, you should make more of it! What language do you program? I was into C++ very long ago, but I want to learn whatever it is my work robot is using...
Kachu-AppleKiwi Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks <3 I want to make more of my art too... I need to just not be lazy X3 Easier said than done though. The other thing is finishing and uploading. I've made quite a few sketches but I don't usually upload them. I will do something about it though!

As for programming, I don't do much of it yet X3 I graduated from highschool not quite a year ago but I'm not in college yet (still figuring things out). I'm planning to go to Digipen where I'll learn C & C++ first? But I'd assume I'd get to know a variety of languages. For the time being I sometimes play around with GML (from GameMaker Studios) which is an adaptation of C# I think? In highschool I had my own website that the school hosted and I was able to play around with php, javascript, and jquery.

Sketches are a good way to keep practicing. I need to sketch more! 

Well rounded is good when it comes to programming. Different languages are better for different things. I can't get over how C has worked itself into so many other languages!
