Hello and thank you for checking out my page!I'm Rikkun Zukheo, also known as AZION the Protogen and thanshuhai in my internet username. I'm half Filipino & Vietnamese who grew up here in the Philippines. I live a simple life, I'm an introvert, quiet, open, relaxed and shy guy.I am a self-taught artist who draws anthropomorphic or furry artworks. I want to tell stories visually and express myself in this medium, I try to paint life, imagine the world around me through art and somehow show what it is all about. I want to learn more and improve in the process, not only for art, but also myself as a person.I am inspired and driven by nature, fellow artist, friends and family. I just want to paint and share it to the world.

That's how you set things off for your art journey.

ABOUT MY FURSONA
Rikkun is basically a representation of myself.My character has different versions, these different versions of myself include: warrior, military, medieval, modern, futuristic, tribal forms and etc. All of which can be used so that he can be illustrated and fit in various settings and situations.He is a shapeshifter, he can shift to his other forms and to having a different species entirely. I like the idea of him transforming into creatures. There's not much story right now but one idea I have is he could be be human before he got transformed into this thing.His element is fire that is rose-red in color which he can breathe out, he's part dragon after all.I have a lot of ideas for him, but as of now I just wanna freely draw him, build the world the he could live in and just have him represent me as a person.

Thanshuhai (pronounced tan-shu-hai, born December 11) also known as Rikkun Zukheo, I'm half-Filipino, half-Vietnamese freelance furry artist from Lucena, Philippines.A former Bachelor of Science in Information Technology student, I worked part-time as a cashier and computer technician before becoming a freelance artist.
If anyone would care to read, I do have a life story page here. But I rather have it not be announced to the public.
I've been a part of the furry fandom since April 2012. I sort of knew the fandom 2 years prior to that. Its when I accidentally stumble upon the community when looking up HTTYD, I searched up "Night Furry" instead of "Night Fury" and that's when I saw werewolves on DeviantArt. I've been following a lot of artists since then and started my interest in art. I've started doing some art and posting it online, one day someone locally invited me to a furry Facebook group and got to learn more about the furry fandom, and that's when I considered myself a furry.My first fursona was a a brown fur Fennec Wolf, and it stayed like that until 2016, when I changed the fur color to gray with orange accent and called the species "Wolfennec".In 2020 I changed my fursona to a Sergal Hybrid with a black tip muzzle while keeping the same colors. But after 2 years the colors and design grew out of me and I wanted to simplify the design and change the species to a "Drazerk" which is a Dragon, Sergal, Shark inspired species.
This current page is hidden from the site's menus.
My family originated from Saigon, current day Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. My mother is Vietnamese and my father is Filipino; they worked at the airport there back in the day until the Vietnam War happened; that's when my family, along with two eldest siblings, moved here in the Philippines.My family lived a modest life. I was brought up in a broken family here in the Philippines with my single mother. I am the youngest of five siblings and one of the last surviving two.I lived a simple life growing up. I am a reserved and quiet person, I didn't bad good grades and I was slow learner, I couldn't even read properly until 6th grade. I only excel at things I'm interested or passionate about like games and computers. In high school I did part-time cashier and was studying and tinkering to be a computer technician. Since computer was my thing, I decided that I wanted to study Information Technology as it peaked my interest for college, I started learning more about programming, graphics and digital art. That's also the same time I discovered the furry fandom and my interest in art, looking around the internet and inspired me to draw. Sadly after 2 years in college I had to dropped out due to financial issues, I started to focus on working part-time and do freelance work to support my family.The furry fandom changed my life for the better. It is where I discovered my passion and gave me the opportunity to support my family, specially my sister is a single parent and I'm somewhat acting as a father figure to my nephew. I owe a big thanks to the amazing community and people who have supported my work over the years. I am quite content right now, all I want now is to live life, explore, do art and share it to you all as long as I am living. I only wish happiness to everyone.I don't think i would be me, if it weren't for my mom who sacrificed alot to me and my sister, despite her being in a foreign country, losing three children and my father leaving us, she still perceivered. She has been very supportive to me, she is my hero, I miss her and I want her to be remembered.
In memory of my loving Mama.
