I'm doing an Ink Sketch sale over on my tumblr and figured I should share it here as well!  Most of these are from the past couple of years' Inktobers, and I'm looking to clear some out to make room for new stuff in my little display book that I bring to conventions.  If anyone's interested shoot me a note or email (m.sciuto@outlook.com), they're $15 each (get 2 or more for $10 each!!) and only available as long as they last so act quick! 




I'm also doing a convention this weekend, if anyone's down in the Tom's River NJ area come find me at the Jersey Shore Comic Book Show!  I'll be doing a few other shows this year as well, including Kids Con and Granite Con up in NH and the Garden State Comic Con in NJ--if anyone's going to those shows come see me!

Thanks as always!

Hello!  Apologies for neglecting my deviantArt account again!  I pop in every once in awhile to post stuff or whatever…feel free to follow me on tumblr since I do more regular posting of sketches and stuff there. But to keep you guys up to date on dA as well, here’s some news:  

I’m going to HerosCon in a couple of weeks!  Not in any official capacity, but if anyone else is going and would like a sketch commission or to purchase a print of something let me know and we can meet up at some point!  I've posted details on my tumblr, feel free to shoot me an email if you're interested: m-sciuto.tumblr.com/post/88083…

I’ll also be moving soon, so in anticipation of that I’m going through all of my old pieces and deciding what to keep or incinerate.  If anyone is interested in purchasing any old colored pencil or marker drawings, or even rough sketches, let me know and I’ll see if I have the piece available!  Go here for more details: m-sciuto.tumblr.com/post/87981…

And would you look at that, we’re getting close to another landmark pageview number: 77,777!  If you see that number pop up when you’re on my page take a screenshot of it, upload it into scraps or wherever, and LEAVE A COMMENT IN THIS JOURNAL ENTRY with the link to said screenshot.  Please do not send me notes with links, and please don’t cheat!  Whoever catches the 77,777 pageview (or the one closest to it) will win a digital half bod drawing by me of any character they choose.

Thanks again, and good luck with the kiriban everybody!

Just a reminder everybody, I've got a table at the Comic Geek Speak Super Show www.comicgeekspeak.com/supersh… in Reading, PA next weekend!  I've got a lot of prints to sell and I'll be drawing while I'm there so come say hi if you're in the area!

Thanks much :D

First off, I've been meaning to say thanks to everybody who bought prints before…so thanks!  I'm not selling anything online anymore, so the only place you guys can get prints is at the Comic Geek Speak Super Show www.comicgeekspeak.com/supersh… in Reading, PA.  I've got a table at the show for the weekend of April 6 and 7, so if anyone's in the tri state area feel free to stop by!  I've got a lot of new prints and stuff to sell, and I'll have my markers and colored pencils so I can draw stuff while I'm there.  If anyone decides they're definitely going and would like a drawing feel free to shoot me a message and I'll start a pre-con commission list—that worked pretty well for me last year since it gives me some time to work on the illustrations before the actual show.

If you can stop by and say "hello!"  Thanks so much :D

Merry Christmas and almost Happy New Year everybody!

I've officially changed my deviantart name to be my actual name--it's something I've been meaning to do to make this page more legit I guess since I have yet to make an actual website for myself.  Also shooto apparently is some mixed martial arts group or something, and I'm obviously not associated with any of that.  I've always used shoot-o because in school that's how I would explain/write my last name so people would say it right and it just kinda stuck.  So Sciuto = shoot-o pronunciation-wise, and that is the explanation for that in case anyone was ever wondering  :D

Commissions are still open for a few more spots (I haven't quite gotten overwhelmed just yet, thanks for that!) and the prints I'll keep on sale until the week of January 20—after that if anybody wants anything it'll have to come from a con, and I've only got one coming up in April that's in PA somewhere.  So yeah get 'em now while you can!  The 11x17 batgirl pieces are almost all gone, and the Neo Victorian ones are going fast (Catwoman is completely sold out).  And remember if you spend $20+ you totally get a free sketch with your purchase!  

Rather than reiterate commission/prints details, just look here at the old journal fav.me/d5mzctu for a refresher.  

Thanks so much, and Happy Holidays!

I'm opening up for commissions and selling prints for a limited time, like until the end of the year.  (I can't believe it's December already...happy holiday times, everybody!)

For commissions I'm ONLY doing one style—half bods inked and colored in Photoshop, like these:

Miss America by msciuto Sailor Moon by msciuto Robin: Damian by msciuto

Single characters are $20, $30 for two characters in one piece.  These can be existing characters or OCs, and reference (especially for the latter) is much appreciated.  Not sure how many spots I'll open up for commissions, but I'll just see how crazy things get and go from there.  Payments can be made through paypal, just shoot me a note or an email at m.sciuto@hotmail.com to let me know what you'd like and we'll go from there!

And I've finally taken an inventory of everything I've got print-wise after cons and stuff, so I figured I'd throw it all up here at once for anyone who wants to make a purchase.  Quantities are limited with some of these prints and I really only want to sell until the end of the year, so if you want something act fast!  I'm doing another con in April and I just kinda want to clear out some of the old stuff and see what still sells before I get new things printed up.  Whenever I do cons I pretty much have no idea what's going on and always manage to be ridiculously unprepared, so hopefully this year I'll do better.  We'll see.

So yeah if anyone is interested just check out what I've got here and shoot me a note here or an email at the aforementioned address.  Prices and available prints are as follows:


11x17 Poster Prints
$10 each, 3 for $23
:thumb340777602:

8.5x11 Neo Victorian Prints
$5 each, 3 for $13
:thumb340777568:

8.5x11 Prints
$5 each, 3 for $13
:thumb340777577:

5x7 Prints
$1.50 each, 5 for $5
:thumb340777554:

Spend $5 or more, get any one 5x7 print FREE
Spend $10 or more, get any three 5x7 prints or one 8.5x11 print FREE
Spend $20 or more, get a crazy colored pencil sketch of whatever character you'd like FREE


Shipping is $3 in the US, $5 elsewhere.  Purchases that include posters will be shipped through USPS from Jersey in a mailing tube and ones with just smaller prints will be shipped in a flat envelope.  All payments can be made through paypal.  

If anyone has any questions, concerns, or wants to barter seriously just let me know!  Thanks much :D

Alright so the 44,444 pageview has come and gone, and I can't thank you guys enough for getting me this far!  Apparently 44,444 officially popped up sometime very very early this morning (Eastern Time) and :iconchocolate-pretzels: was the lucky winner who caught it!  Congratulations!  And as I said two runners up get prizes too, but since only four people participated (one via note) I didn't want to leave anybody out so congrats also goes to :iconpyrotwilight: :iconhappy-gurl: and :iconspoiler-emblem: for catching random pageviews that were kinda close.  Everybody wins!  Yay!

Thanks again you guys!  Your next chance to win is the 55,555 kiriban, whenever that happens :D

Just a reminder, the 44,444 page view is quickly approaching and prizes will be won!  First place gets a detailed digital drawing, two places closest and quickest after that get scribbly digital drawings.  Just take a screen cap and link it in a comment in this journal and I'll announce the winners whenever it happens.

Thanks and good luck everybody :D

Well I finally have a legit store for my prints shooto.bigcartel.com

I'm just playing with it for now so only a few pieces are up and quantities are limited, but more will come if it's somewhat successful!  We'll see how it goes.  If anyone has any questions about it or if there's a specific piece someone would like to see printed let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Thanks much :D
