Aaand Razzbowski already found out how to successfully render Raibaru useless and eliminate Osana. Since Raibaru is undefeatable and will always follow Osana everywhere, making it impossible to either defeat Raibaru or kill Osana since she will always step in, the solution is to simply it's just kidnap Raiberu and have her eliminate Osana herself, oof. He makes all these stupid update videos and never really releases the finished build. He'll also go into bugfixing for 1 or 2 more years once Osana is complete because we all know everything in this game is glitchy. Also he says almost everything (3d models, animations) is a placeholder. So the actual game won't be released until everything has been replaced. He's just fooling his fanbase with these videos because they never consider that.
Big oof. She actually managed to surprise me by pulling off an actual decent costume that does not look trashy but then I notice she actually made noteworthy changes to it in order to make it A LOT more revealing compared to the original. If she actually intends to participate in the contest with this she is going to have a hard time unless it's not an actual cosplay contest but a 'sexy cosplay contest' where people just get judged by how much skin they reveal or so. Please compare the cleavage to the original costume if you wanna know what I mean especially:
Original: Shows no cleavage but has the belly exposed
Hers: shows big cleavage and has almost the whole belly covered Also the 'broken skin pattern' in the face is on the wrong side, probably because she put it on herself while looking into a mirror.
Seeing them together just looks so bad. Especially since Raiberu is Osana's old 3D model and it really shows. The hair color, the hairbands, the crunchie around her arm. Alex should really have made Raiberu's hair blue or purple or so, maybe remove the twintails and make it a ponytail, at least. It looks so uncanny with these two hanging out together because they look too much like the same character made in two different art styles. I also really hope that if we befriend Osana that she will stay in the game as a character. Just thinking about the option of 'stopping Osana by befriending her' I get so much ideas for a possible plot twist in which Osana and Ayano end up falling in love and both ditching that boring Taro. That would be so much more fulfilling than just elimination one rival after another just to confess to Taro under that tree which we have seen sooo often by now. It's just not rewarding anymore since there are fan videos of it and Alex already has all of this planned out and shared it with us. I rather want a game in which I play Ayano who thinks she is a Yandere because she gets a little obsessed over Taro due to him being the first boy she ever cared about, but then Ayano finds true love with one of the other girls she tries to eliminate - who are by far more interesting than Taro and could have a Yandere side to themselves too, making it double Yandere power. If only someone else but Alex would make this game...
At this point I don't know if I'd want any big person to make a callout post about her or not because yes indeed she is making it harder for us other artists to gain our followers trust and get commissioned. Lots of small artists I know already struggle with filling their emergency commission slots when they need money asap to pay their rent or meds. I don't want life to become even harder for them if artists like Cyome get exposed and the public will be: 'Oh look, these artists. Always scamming their followers. Guess I'll better not commission artists anymore or only make payment when the drawing is done.' It will only make it harder for the starving artists I know. While Cyome is out there riding the train of a fake poor artist, scamming people, never sending out her charms and posting about the DDLG life she is living on her side account. It just... It makes me so mad. I don't know if it would be right or wrong to ask big youtubers or so to expose her. I think it will just ruin the art community even more which honestly sucks. But at the same time if we don't expose her there will be Cyome 2.0s pop up and do the same as her. In the end no matter what happens Cyome cause such a huge damage to the community with her behaviour because her follower number is so big and people will notice, and then this will cause problems for people who need commission money to live. And it sucks.
Not to mention she hold a live stream in which she drew and talked about her self harm which could have been potentially triggering to anyone joining the stream for her art and that was waaaay after she made the 'i'm going to ship out the charms soon' post. Oof she's active and spends her time liking other people's art instead of making an announcement for her followers. this is... horrible. I agree. If I ever open commissions again I will ask people to pay 50% upfront so they at least got the sketch if I will ever drop the commission due to health or anything. But to be honest I'd just refund the money if I can't finish what they paid for. I don't know why artists like Cyome take it for granted that people give her the money upfront and once the money is taken she thinks she is control of finishing the drawing or drawing anything at all. Maybe artists who are popular should not be all high and mighty towards their followers since those followers who commission her are people with heath too, maybe they are depressed and commissioned her OCs from her to feel better, or they placed the commission as a present to themselves or someone else. And she just ignores them and even makes them seem like the 'villians' if they ask her to hurry up with the art after waiting for 6 months or more. Maybe she should reconsider her point of view that other people have a health too?
Yeah it really seems like only Cyome can manually refund the money at this point since the purchases are too far in the past. That's also why I don't like artists who take the commission money when the customer places the commission when they know their wait list is THAT long (1 year of waiting or longer). While I'm an artist myself and support fellow artists this kind of upfront payment with this kind of HUGE waitlist leaves a lot of room for scamming and they should change their commission policy if they know they'll end up being unable to finish that many drawings at a time. Cyome should just make a wait list and demand payment when she starts the drawing or should at least only charge 50% of the money when the person places the commission and the other half when she starts the actual drawing. At this point she is taking 100% of the payment upfront and there is no guarantee she will ever deliver the drawing. Plus she says in her commission policy that she might just not make it if she feels too bad (healthy), which also leaves a lot of room for scamming because nobody can prove if she feels bad or not, and she can just 'always feel bad'. What she is doing at the moment is right out scamming and I wouldn't be surprised if she made thousands of dollars this way without actually working, since she sold around 50 charms and takes commissions that start at 200$ in badges too. I also noticed that most artists who actively take commissions have a public wait list while Cyome leaves people in the dark about how many people are waiting for commissions currently, which also makes it impossible for anyone to know who is getting their drawing and who is not. Which also sounds like a huge red flag and room for scamming.
The charms have been sold 30 weeks ago if you look at her IG post. That would be around 7 months or 200 days ago. Based on their policy Paypal let's you charge back money that have been sent up 180 days ago. Unless they paid some other way or etsy has additional policy regarding this they can't get their charms and commissions refunded. But I still wish good luck to anyone who'll try to get the money back for goods they didn't receive.
There are actually tutorials on how to 'get a cosplay cleavage' on youtube that instruct to wear a bra half the actual size, then put a bigger bra on top of that (stuff that one with socks or tissues) and then put another huge bra on top to make sure all of that keeps in place. she had that tutorial in her favorite videos back when she still had a YT account so I'm pretty sure she wears the waaay too small bra because of that and will add two more stuffed bras on top of that for the final costume. since the pic she posted is just a 'work in progess pic' she probably decided to just wear the smallest bra instead of the whole setup. that's why she has three bras on in most of her cosplay photos (whenever we see several different bra holders on her shoulder). she probably thinks this is the right and professional way to do it, when these pics of the way too small bras on her just look scary and make my own chest hurt by just looking at it... someone needs to let her know this is actually dangerous. well it's good she isn't stating this on the new ones at least
To be honest I think the reason why people enable her behaviour is because probably most of her mutuals are scared she'll actually hurt herself and everyone is scared that if she really does something that they will be responsible for it. This does not make it right she is scamming commissioners and etsy customers tho. In fact it sounds very manipulative to take money and scam people and to threat with selfharm when being called out for it. Regardless I see how this would scare people to actually confront her about it or poke at it more. Especially since Cyome is so open on her livestreams about her selfharm and prove that she actually hurt herself before. Understandable that her mutuals don't want to be the ones that caused her to do anything to herself when being confronted with the charm and commission scam.
It's sort of like a lot of people mentioned on her previous drawings: It's like looking at a cosplayer of the character with a different age, personality and intention to get attention from the audience by posing sexy while wearing a random anime girl costume, probably not knowing where the character is from, instead of looking at a drawing of the actual character.
Is he really trying to guilt trip his patreons here for being annoyed that he makes a 'lost chapter' instead of working on actual progresson the core gameplay? He literally spoiled the whole game already. How can he be anxious about showing spoilers? He already revealed all the rivals and their motives anyway. I mean after he finished Raiburu he'll just impletent some other new mysterious character who takes a tremendous amount of time anyway. Since this is what he has to say about every asset, character or event he implements and he keeps adding more and more. The whole game is janky. tl;dr: Osana won't be done in 2019.
This is tragic... Really dislike how she tries to go for realistic styles recently but draws these giant heads. she should also study how faces work.
idk if anyone noticed yet but her body is literally placed on top of the desk and is clipping into it the whole video... also am i the only one who is ANNOYED at how her fursona moves the pen nonstop through the whole video as if she's drawing on the tablet in a weird motion that does not make sense and she's not even looking at the screen once? it looks so lackluster
