Who Are You?

I'm Jess, aka Roxy (or Lumi.) I am a digital artist and programmer.
You can find out more about my art by going to my website:
fxsql.com

See my Commission Queue as well as progress on projects [here]

If you want to ask me questions, and you don't want to do it through Patreon, my Twitter is where I spend the most time:
@FxSql


What Do You Do?

First and foremost, I am a digital artist. However, I also like to write code, mess around with computers, and do other stuff related to computers and games. I like old games and old games hardware, which is reflected in some of my art as well as covers I've made in Famitracker.

Past and Future Projects


Commission Website - FxSql.com

Many people are familiar with my commission's website, as I've taken a few hundred artworks through it now, whether they be gift art, commissions, or Patreon rewards. My website also does price conversions for people to see how much their commission will cost in their respective currency. I can make private links that people can use to redeem artwork that's either free (gift art) or that they have to pay for (when I take a commission while closed.)

Future Plans
I plan on rewriting the commissions website from the ground up, to allow me to have a lot more configurations when it comes to commissions. People will be able to commission me for specific things, say if they want to get a toon character along side a character with standard proportions, they'll be able to get a price for that. I also wish to optimize the code, because some of it just works but it's definitely not the way you're supposed to be doing it.

Bot Software for Twitter

I've written different bots for Twitter, as well as host them for Patrons as well. You can visit the different bots on Twitter at  @BotSql@PaneldePonBot@ErrGraphic, and @Precognatable. Each one has a different function that you can see by visiting the bot.

Future Plans
As my bot software was one of the first codes I wrote when I got back into programming, it's pretty bad and unoptimized. I wish to take the time to rewrite it from the ground up to be more efficient and less confusing. I also plan on implementing cross posting to Mastodon, so people on there can enjoy the content of these bots as well.
Specifically, I want to be able to give people who have bots hosted by me more control over their bots, as well as more features. I also want to add more graphical features to ErrGraphic.

Gameboy (HD) Icons

I've done pixel art in the past as well as regular digital art which is done in 4 shades of green, similar to the classic Gameboy. They can then be recolored using a script I wrote to 69 different color schemes. You can see the pixel art version  here, and the HD version here.

Future Plans
Since the pixel art icons are simply indexed PNG files, you can change the colors yourself using Photoshop, GIMP, Aseprite, or any other software which allows you to change the color on indexed files. However, the HD icons are made using 4 different images that are composited into one image. Therefore, it's not simply a matter of manipulating an index, because it is a true color image. I plan on writing an application in Electron for Windows, Mac, and Linux, which will allow you to recolor these, as well as the pixel art ones, and allow you to put in your own images. My hope is that other artists are able to use it to expand their commission offerings, and that people are able to enjoy coloring their artwork.

Process Videos

I have uploaded several process videos to Youtube now, which show how I create my artwork. You can view them by clicking  here. I have not been able to upload them lately, as my desktop stopped wanting to render them, and my laptop was unable to. Recently, I was able to upgrade my desktop finally, so I need to rewrite the script I use to render them (I use ffmpeg and php) and then I'll be able to start uploading them again.

NES Music Covers in Famitracker

I've done a few music covers in the past, which you can listen to  here. I want to be able to do more in the future, but I have not had the time because usually I am working and trying to get by, so I can't spend the time on them that I'd like to.

And More

There's definitely more that I'm not thinking about right now, but later on I'll remember and add it on here. There's a lot of stuff I wanna do!!!

What is your Patreon for?

I've always been interested in art, but now I feel like I can do it at a professional level. This patreon is to help me with that. In addition to commissions that I do, I also like to write code to help me make art, progress video, and the like. Right now I have to juggle time between drawing and working at my job. This patreon helps me to have some money so I can spend some more time on code and drawing. It is my dream to be able to do what I love full time, instead of just one or two days a week. If I'm able to get more support on Patreon, then I'll be able to give back more as well. 

My Patreon is for people who wish to support me monthly. If you wish to support me just one time, please visit my Ko-Fi

What can I expect if I support you?

By supporting me, you'll be helping me to fulfill the projects I listed above, as well as much more. So, you can expect more progress videos, odd coding jobs, and the like. I also want to expand my Patreon offerings, and start doing monthly drawings which can be voted upon by Patreons, wallpapers, gifts for Patrons, etc. Right now, however, I am not able to offer these things. If I ever get in a position where I'm able to make enough money online to make it my fulltime thing, then I'll be able to give a lot more back. You'll also get discounts on commissions, if you're into them.

What if I don't have money?

I like to release what I do for everyone, and write for everyone, so all you have to do is follow me and you'll still receive content for free. The Patreon monthly support is mainly just a way for people to say "thank you" for what I do.

Important

I have Charge Up Front enabled on my Patreon! This means that, if you decide to pledge, you'll be charged right away, and then monthly after that.

Please be aware that, if you change your pledge amount, you'll be charged immediately for the difference!
