You seem to do a lot of Amazing World Of Gumball stuff. Please consider throwing Banana Joe in there at some point. He's my favorite.

Mike Inel

A: With or without permission, you're free to post it under these three simple conditions:
1: No money involved. (Free in short)
2. A proper credit is displayed. ("By: Mike Inel" is fine)
3. You won't claim it's yours unless it's a collaboration between us. (I rarely do collabs)

Q: What if it's a commissioned artwork you made, am I free to repost it too?
A: Commissioned artworks belong to their respective clients/commissioners. Please ask for their permission instead.
A: However, if you're the client/commissioner of the artwork, feel free to do whatever you like.

Q: I made a fanart of your work. Should I credit you?
A: Not necessarily, but I encourage you to. It's also best to emphasize "fanart" there.

Q: I made something that was inspired by your work. Should I credit you?
A: No need.

Q: Can I cosplay one of your works?
A: Sure!! (Credits are optional)


Q: What program do you use for drawing? (and painting?)
A: Adobe Photoshop CS6 + Manga Studio 5

Q: What about animation?
A: Adobe Photoshop CS6 + Manga Studio 5 + Adobe AfterEffects CS6

Q: And 3D?
A: Autodesk 3dsmax 2013 + Adobe Photoshop CS6

Q: Lastly, programing language?
A: DarkBASIC Professional or Unity. I use Ren'Py too for visual novels.

Q: Do you use tablets?
A: Yes. Wacom Intuos 4 L


Q: Can I request an artwork from you?
A: I'm sorry, but I only do requests for close friends.

Q: Are you available for commissions?
A: Rarely.

Q: Have you ever considered making tutorials?
A: I'm not good at teaching. (Believe me, I tried.)


Q: What university did you attend to learn how to (insert art-related verb here)
A: None. Sad to say, I'm undergraduate right now.

Q: Where did you learn how to (insert art-related verb here)
A: Self-learning and free online tutorials.

Q: Any tips or tutorials?
A: Check my downloadable PSDs here:… Try observing a lot. A whole lot. Heck, trace some for learning purpose if you want. (Just trash it after you're done. People rage at traced artworks) You'll eventually see the tiny details you never noticed.

Q: What's your inspiration in creating art?
A: I want to see something I haven't seen, so I'll try making it instead.

Q: How long did you practice drawing to get to the level you're at now?
A: The longest time I can remember.

Q: Why aren't you replying to our posts?
A: I find it difficult to answer hundreds of posts. But believe it or not, I'm reading them all. In fact, I'm even excited to read them.

Q: Are you a Filipino?
A: Opo


It's finally up now! Give your support if you like~!

I'm still finishing my commission reservation list at the moment though, so there are little updates in my Patreon page for now.

But soon it will be updated with more PSD files and concept artworks of the current project I'm working on, which is "What if The Amazing World of Gumball was an Anime"
Commission: Icicleflower Icewind by Mikeinel
Commission: Icicleflower Icewind
Commissioned and Character by:

"A Ice Queen with Questionable Integrity"

Icicle: Butler Hudson! A wine glass of the finest apple beverage, please!

Keiki the Umbreon: So...Are you happy with yourself? You have finally recieved the gods' blessing after passing their trials. Is this all you wanted?

Icicle: Of course not. This is only the start, I'm just a step closer. Now, responsibilities as a Queen are plenty. Of course, Chancellor Suicune --

Keiki: What does it take to be a leader, Icicle?

Icicle: Hm? Oh...

Keiki: What does it take to be leader that doesn't take advantage of the island inhabitants that look up to her? You promised the tourists and the crash survivors their wintery luxury.

Icicle: Excuse me?! I want my people to be happy, you stupid Umbreon!

Keiki: A true leader of her own island nation maintains the peace and moral fiber among every being on this island, be they human or pokemon. A true leader inspires, leads, and works with the people to a better future for not just the leader, but for everyone.

Icicle: I admit, as much as I wanted to be take upon the crown and inherit the title of the Queen of the Arctic Winds, I haven't done a lot of research...since, well, I didn't expect it to happen. I guess it's a lot to take in: the power, the support, the structure and beauty...and the luxury - of course.

Keiki: Oh...? Do tell. Humor me.

Icicle: I don't think I disagreed with your wisdom, Keiki. I look up to you, after all - you are my big brother. You're with me because you're invaluable and so is everyone else on this island. The humans have helped me understand that it takes much more than strength to be Queen, and I have shown them that Icewind Isle is a place of peace and luxury. I knew I didn't want to betray their wishes when I saw their childrens' eyes glimmer. With my heart, I will give them that peace. I want to earn their love and respect.

Keiki: I'm glad you're not thinking only for yourself for once. Other Articuno like you, if I remember my history, were typically bigots.

Icicle: My father may have hated humans and tried to turn all pokemon against them, hoping to spark a mindless civil conflict through his crystals. Sigh... But he too cared for humans. Once. But, as Queen, I'm going to be a strong leader. I know the residents and even Butler Hudson here will expect the most out of me and I know I will provide. The recent, new garden opening is an example.

Keiki: Good for you, Icicle. You never were the type to turn down a challenge.

Icicle: First off, that's "your icy-ness". There's one thing every Queen needs though, Keiki.

Keiki: What will that be? Let me guess, more pow--

Icicle: Her servants, and I think it's time I hired a handmaiden.

Keiki: ...Sometimes, I wonder myself how you are still alive. Fate itself must be holding a grudge against you with all the enemies we have made and traps you have evaded.

Icicle: Heh. Enemies. Then I will continue to mock and challenge this fate as I train myself for when it decides to come after me. Anyone or anything that threatens my new, growing island kingdom will have to answer to me or be part of my trophy collection. No matter the strength of this threat, I will raise an army and I will stand with them to protect the island and people. I expect you to be there too, Umbreon.

Icicle: Does that answer your grumpy-self's question?

Keiki: ...I recommend getting your "servants" at least some warming headgear. I think Hudson here is going to catch a cold tonight. No, seriously, Icicle, these are terrible working conditions for the people and pokemon here. Where is the Chancellor?

It's been months since the last time I made a journal of my updates.

Not much happened, but the most notable one is the success of the animation I made:

It reached to many places of the internet: Smosh, io9, Dorkly, even Doug Walker of Nostalgia Critic shared it in his Facebook.

Thank you everyone for loving this video!

In response, I'm making another one! And from the deviations and tumbr posts that i've been making, I'm sure everyone had already guessed it:
It's "What if The Amazing World of Gumball was an Anime?"

Right now, it's around halfway done. But finance kept me slow from finishing this small animation.
Some people advised me to go for "that" as a solution.
After a lot of mental battle between my 'goody-two-shoes' me and my 'face-the-reality' me, I finally gave in and am going for "that".

"That", of course, is Patreon.

I'm still finalizing it as I write this journal.
But to be honest, I'm not really confident that mine will become a success like the other popular artists out there. I can't provide many artworks, but instead, can work on small animations that take months.
So my rewards for the patrons are behind-the-scenes and work-in-progress footage/screenshots, even concept artworks and designs. Including PSD files of the animation clips themselves. (In half-resolution)
And of course, inclusion to the credits when the animation is done.

For years now, I normally share my WIP deviations and tumblr posts every now and then.
The sad news is, I have to limit all those now and share these exclusively to my Patrons only.
But the good news is, I'll be more frequent in sharing these compared to how I used to. (But exclusive to Patrons)

But don't worry, when the animation is done, the animation will still be distributed free for everyone to watch!!!

So what happened to Missing Halloween?
It's on hold at the moment until I get things sparkly clean again, from clearing my list of commission reservations, to securing my financial status, to finishing the current animation.
So to fans out there, especially to those who contributed to character designing, please remain patient. ; u ; / It will be worked on after the Gumball animation, in hopes I'll have enough funds again to hire IB artists and VAs.

That's all for now.
Thank you for reading, and advance Happy Holidays!

It's finally up now! Give your support if you like~!

I'm still finishing my commission reservation list at the moment though, so there are little updates in my Patreon page for now.

But soon it will be updated with more PSD files and concept artworks of the current project I'm working on, which is "What if The Amazing World of Gumball was an Anime"

Hi, nice art.
MasterofNintendo Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Say, you wouldn't mind doing a short animation in which a human Meta-Ridley is being trolled by Nintendo (or at least just Samus?)?  The human Duck-Hunt Dog could also be a candidate troll.

If relevance is an issue, keep in mind: Meta-Ridley was confirmed as being 'too big' for being a playable Super Smash Bros. Character. Only a stage hazard.

Hello you're animations are so detailed and advanced its amazing. I was wondering if you intend to do animations for yourself or someone else because me and my friends are trying to animate several original projects, but were no where near your level. Now this is only because I absolutely love your work but if you want would you be willing to help us with animation for our series
