Still Alive

Capitalist job has been eating my time and spoons for the past 3 years, hence the lack of updates. Not dead though; would really like to return someday but I can't promise when. Miss you folks. :C (BTW I finally bought a screen tablet a few weeks ago, I have no idea WHEN I'll be able to practice wi…

Alive

I've been looking for a new place to live for the past 6 months or so, and finally found one. I'm not moving in until mid-May at least though, and I've post-poned getting a screen tablet to get back to art until after I'm all settled in and recovered from the massive burn out this frantic search ha…

Cintiq and the like? Halp.

Do you use one? Are there several models or brands like this? Any good one / recommandations? I've been contemplating getting one if money falls from the sky, 'cause part of my art block comes from my mental health, but also how discourageing using my regular tablet has been even after years of pra…

o/

I'm alive by the way. Still living with a massive art block (anxiety disorder with executive dysfunction ftw) and working a shitty minimum wage job so I'm not finding the spoons to draw, but I'm around at least. I had a few Flight Rising sketches and some, but nothing finished. It's been laying aro…

Can't log in FA

Since their big fuck-up and password reset, I went through their process to retrieve a new password, except they haven't responded. So I can't log in my FA account to check messages and browse the artists I watch over there. If they don't reply ever, I'll just give up on FA entierely. Blah. Sorry f…

I'm safe and okay

My plans for the day were cancelled so I was at home during the attacks. I still need to check on some of my friends but for now I think they're alive. Feral

New artist !

I wanted to signal boost for a dear friend of mine who started using his Weasyl account recently, as he gets no exposure so you probably never heard from him before. fleetfoot He has old content over DA if you want to see more of his previous style ( http://fleetfoot.deviantart.com/ , has photograp…

Question about site preferences?

Is there a way to remove/make invisible the " Older / Folder / Newer " browsing thingy under individual submissions when you view them? I don't want to see that, it doesn't look good visually (confusing, heavy, etc). Feral

Trans Day of Visibility

I posted a few selfies on Tumblr, since they don't really have enough artistic value to be shared here. http://feralkiss.tumblr.com/post/115156601175/2010-and-2015-29-y-o-nb-trans-he-him-or (Also: please remember that it's not safe for everyone to be out as trans, and people don't HAVE to be out as…

Issue with tablet (Gimp 2.8 and Win 7)

I've been reading a lot of forums and guides about this issue but can't find a clear answer. I used to have Gimp on Mac OS with no issue, but since I switched to Windows 7 I can't get Gimp to recognize my tablet (the tablet works otherwise, but as a regular mouse with no pressure sensitivity). When…

Back-ish

Ok, my computer issues are mostly resolved. I just have some softwares issues now, but I got my data back, the computer seems to be functional again, no crashes... But yeah I have to reinstall all shit (including art programs, all drivers, etc). But at some point that means I will resume arting (ho…

Still stuck

I haven't been able to see the friend who was supposed to help me with my computer issues. Not once in the past couple months. Sadly, he has a history of being very avoidant at times - we've been friends for many years - so I don't even have an explanation regarding what's going on. I know he has a…

Notice

I have a working computer again, which is yay! However I haven't recovered the data from one of my hard drive yet, the one that contains all the art I was currently working on (and all the images, videos and music I've accumulated over the years), so I haven't been able to finish commissions and my…

Computer issues

'Just wanted to let you know my computer died! I feel really anxious and terrible about not having a computer working properly, and all my coping strategies on it out of reach, but alas these things happen. My data seems intact for now but I can't launch any of my OS (Mountain Lion, Windows 7) beca…

I'm alive (sort of)

Didn't update this since January so here you go. I guess this is going to be another "I apologize for not updating my gallery much at the moment". I have a commission (ref sheet) that is almost finished, but my mental health has been such a pain that I haven't been able to work on my art for a whil…

Still around!

I wanted to update the thing to let folks know that I'm still around. Life has been really shitty and that has kept me away from art. Consider me open for commissions (to help with some of the issues), I'll make a proper entry about that soon; just thought I'd drop a hello right away. :) Feral

Back. Sortof.

I just got my Internet back this morning. Still settling in the new place. Will resume artistic activity at some point... Thanks for your patience.

Mini-hiatus

I'm looking for appartments and going to pack my stuff within the month, so I don't have time for art as of late. I'll be back when I'm all settled in a new place with Internet access. Meanwhile, take care!

Currently not taking commissions

I have a lot of academic work to get done, and am dealing with a break-up after almost 5 years of relationship with a nice guy, so I won't be taking commissions for a while as I don't have the time and energy for it. I'll certainly update my status this summer, depending on when I move in my new pl…

Thanks!

I just meant to thank everyone for the favs and watches. It feels good to be back arting again, and see both familiar faces and new. Thank you everybody for being supportive of my work! Feral

Farouche’s avatar

Hello?

First of all, thank you so much for the favs and watches! I've been trying to make myself at home here in between my academic work, but I really appreciate the support. There's one thing I was wondering: I submitted a "Character" and it never did show up in the Characters page. Not sure what I did…
