Plugging away at commissions!

Hello, just a status update that I'm still plugging away at commissions! There's been a pair of sequences lately so it's not fully ready to post yet as I prefer to post sequences in full to make them easier to browse rather than piecemeal uploads but there is indeed art on the way soon! On a simila…

I don't want to delve into it too much but this weekend will be the funeral of my grandmother. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't rough but fo us life must go on. We'll manage, so don't worry too much. On the work front, due to a lack of workload coming out way I've been officially laid off a few wee…

Quick update, still recovering

Just a quick update. Continuing to rest a bit, perhaps even more dedicatedly than before, but recovering seem to be starting even if a bit slowly?

2019-05-08: Updates, commissions open

As usual, a new update for a new month. With how business has slowed down there, I think it's fairly safe to say my technical drafting contract has "officially" ended last month. This has left me with less income but more time to produce art. As you can see by recent uploads, I've thus done my best…

Tech Update

So, I -might- have found the problem. Wasn't able to reproduce a crash(quite the irony, eh) but while I lost this month's crash dumpfiles when I did a system restore to access my PC again, I've still had logs from march and january. As it stands, one of these crashes was done by a file called "TCla…

04-13-14 Crow Sunday Papers 1

Gonna try to start a bit of a tradition of weekly updates and I figured that sunday is probably as good day than any for that, being the "day of rest" for a lot of people out there. So, thus far, I would say the last week went rather well, technical troubles and all. Even if issues slowed me down r…

UPDATE

Already completed one of the pics in the commission queue. Since it's meant to be a birthday gift, though, I still need to asks the commissioner whether or when I can post it. In anyways, I now have three slots now open :) Queue: 1. Yoshyan 2. Yoshyan 3. 4. 5. In other news, a system restore seems…

Computer Update

Welp. The crash continues even without the tablet installed. Whatever broke during that livestream BSOD.... it broke bad enough we're starting to fear we'll need a reformat. I still have the laptop to produces art, but it's performance is such that it only cement the inability to host a livestream.…

UPDATE:Recent streams tech issues, offline coms and triggers

As some people might be aware of, when I attempted to resume a "livestream schedule" yesterday, my computer had a bluescreen of death in the middle of the livestream. The crash was so bad that the computer would keep crashing whenever I booted Windows outside of safe mode... this was fixed only whe…

Stream paused/post-poned(+edits)

Welp, I've just had another bluescreen of death for the first time in almost a month while streaming so I guess today's stream will have to be considered on hold if not cancelled. Ever since I've got the new tablet(I don't know if there's any relations, it might be a conflict stemming from graphic…

Back to business. Streams, commissions and more.

So, let me start by saying that I will start streaming proper today within 45 to one hour from now. So be warned. This now said, I want to use this post to say I have decided to try to "return to business" starting today. By this... I mean that I want to giving this art and commissions a real go as…

I feel like I can finally breath(warning: politics)

Yesterday was election day in the province of Quebec, where I live. The elections were called by the party in power, the Parti Quebecois who had won a minority government back in late 2012. They had launched this campaign due to what they claimed was a schism with other parties on a "Charter of Que…

New day, new week, commissions and other updates.

First of all, I'm still OPEN to commissions. Current queue below for off-stream commissions(with levels included, since it can be an indicator of complexity.

On yesterday

I figure I can write this, now that I am back from voting in Quebec's elections. For people who were worried because of my journal yesterday, I just wished to say that everything went as well as they could have.

Updates and resolutions.

Beyond the art block. Also, streaming schedule this week

Despite offer for commissions beyond what I am oft used to, I've found myself facing on of my biggest art block of the year, if not ever since I began to take on art commissions full time.
