Update: Tablet is borked. I am boned.

Bear with me as I go into panic mode for a moment. So. Tablet? Not cooperating again. Many reboots. Reinstalls. plugging/unplugging. All the tricks I could find. Not working. In fact, its current behavior is reminding me of the old tablet! You know, the one I replaced with the one I have now only t…

This is my Critique Journal, come tear me a new one

Yeah, I have been putting this off for a while out of dumb fears but, honestly, I need to do this. This is something that I know won't be fun and I have a history of being bad at taking to heart, in a way, but I figure now's a good time as any to do it. This is simple: post anything you strongly fe…

100 Fashion Prompts/List/Meme, free to share

I did this kind of spur of the moment to get it out of my head. While I'm NOT open to commissions inspired by this (Not right now that is), I figure I'd post this in case any of you want to use this list of ideas for fun. Before you go "Aren't some of these redundant?", it's semi-intentional, as th…

Might stream tonight but first, Games Done Quick! Join me?

So normally I would be streaming art tonight (and still might later on!) but this whole week I've been a smiiiidge addicted to watching [url=https://gamesdonequick.com/]Summer Games Done Quick[/url], a video game speedrunning marathon for charity. Tonight I'm watching some with my beau DH01 and wat…

(POLL) What should my next 100 pic challenge be?

This is something I have been musing on for a while and would like some feedback on, if possible. Keep in mind this would not go underway until my current list of owed art is dealt with, but consider this a goal for me/something to get excited over for when the day comes. Depending on which one win…

One of those whiny "I'm starting to hate drawing" rants

Warning, I'm being whiny again, feel free to ignore me. I may delete this later. So between stuff like working on paid for art and using my Twitter to vent out my silly moments, I also research stuff. A lot of stuff. Among the things I research are how others have managed with their own Patreon acc…

No stream tonight, here's why (Addendum)

So I've not done streams on Monday for several reasons and only now realized, oops, I should explain why that is, shouldn't I? For those that don't know, I have Monday set aside to exclusively work on the much larger "standard" commissions (also on Wednesdays, but that alternates) that include thin…

YES, FINALLY, A SCHEDULE OF SORTS (includes one for streams)

SO OK, this is something I've been meaning to do for far too long, but we're doing, starting now. My Commission-Drawing days will be Monday and Friday, with Friday (I hope) being my day to do art streams, which will probably include some discounted, on-the-spot artwork for anyone who joins the stre…

Cheap Commish March AND April!

Money is kind of tight this month hence why I'm offering these. Not gonna say 'emergency commissions' because, really, I'll live in the long run?

Well this is upsetting.

Things in FA have me worried about doing business there any more, or at least being extra cautious about it.

A significant reason to be annoyed with FA being down
