General Update

First of all, I'd like to thank you guys for your support and to just remind you that you're awesome! Now for updates. I'd like to start opening up for more commissions on more regular, but still limited, basis. Things are settling down a bit and I should be able to do so. Commissions will almost c…

TDIH Cancelled for Today

I'm afraid I'm cancelling today's This Day in History post. This week has been a rough one as we held my Papa's funeral yesterday and I'd rather just work on something else this evening and spend a bit of time with Mom and Dad. Thank you for understanding.

TDIH Cancelled for Today

Today's installment of "This Day in History" has been cancelled as I've been stuck in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, for most of the day trying to deal with a snake which managed to climb into the cab of my pickup while at the mall. I've only recently returned home and will have to go back in the morning to…

Ask Me Anything

Just as the title says. If you've got any questions you'd like to ask of me, feel free to do so!

General Update

So, it's almost Christmas break and that means that I'll have about a couple of weeks of free time without having to plan out lessons. That in turn means that I should have a bit more time to dedicate to drawing (among other hobbies & interests). Hopefully there will be an increase in the frequency…

Pieces You'd Like to See Revisited?

Still getting the hang of digital art and I had a question for y'all. What are some of the pics and sketches in my gallery that you'd like to see revisited/redone digitally? I'll try to do a few as I get some free time.

Ask Me Anything

Haven't done one of these in a while, so why not do one now? If you have questions you'd like to ask of me, feel free to do so! I'll be answering them while I work on some lessons/lesson plans for next week.

Update to the Update

Last night I posted that I've recently gotten a job teaching 5th grade. Well, I got a call today from the superintendent with a change of plans. It seems that the high school history teacher is leaving to teach at another school with her husband and I've been moved up to replace her. So now I'll be…

So, A Bit of a Life Update

I previously posted about taking the OGET a couple of months ago. Well, I got my scores for the test a few weeks ago and passed with flying colors. I've also since taken and passed three subject area tests and am heading to Oklahoma City to get my background check completed in a couple of days. How…

Which Characters Would You Like to See More

Probably do some drawing tomorrow (maybe general, maybe adult, whatever mood strikes me at the moment) and was wondering which of my cast of characters you'd like to see some more. The link below has the refs for almost all of my characters, but if there's somebody not there that you'd still like t…

Took the OGET

So, I don't usually post about what's going on in my personal life (always figured I'd just be boring y'all) but I figured this was as good of a time as any. I'm currently pursuing certification to teach in the state of Oklahoma and today was the first big step by taking the OGET (Oklahoma General…

What Would You Like to See?

Just a general question. I'm curious to know what sort of things you'd like to see more of from me. You can be as general or specific as you want. Thanks for taking the time to provide your input! It really helps to know what you guys really want to see.

Patreon Launched

So, I've just launched my Patreon campaign. Feel free to check it out and if you'd like to support my continued artistic endeavors, feel free to also make a pledge. It's still a bit of a work in progress as I get the hang of this and figure out more possible rewards, but there's still a bit on ther…

Input Regarding Patreon

So, I plan to launch a Patreon campaign soon, possibly even this Friday/weekend. This would allow me to not only continue but to also dedicate more time to such things as Martial Pinups, This Day in History, and Warriors as well as other projects that are either currently on the back burner or are…

Changes in Commission Prices

I've been considering raising prices for a little while now. It's not by much ($5 increase for themed pages and $2.50 for AF/Wing-It and simple color pics). This is to better account for the time spent on them in the case of themed pages and to adjust for Paypal fees across the board. So, for a qui…

TMI Tuesday (Plus a Question for You)

Haven't done one of these in a little while, so here we go. Feel free to ask me questions. Also, I have a question for you. Which of my characters is your favorite? It's just something about which I'm just a bit curious.

TDiH, Martial Pinups, and Patreon

Okay, so here's a journal for a discussion of the new "This Day in History" series, the Martial Pinups series, and the possibility of a Patreon. To begin with, TDiH is not going to replace the Martial Pinups and the Martial Pinups have not been discontinued. Instead, I actually wish to make both se…

Updates

Just to go ahead and get this out of the way, I probably won't be posting too much in the way of art for the next few weeks. It's (hopefully) my final semester and I'll be graduating in May. However, that also means I have a fair bit of work over the next few weeks which will be demanding most of m…

Update and Martial Pinups

Currently working on a little Christmas-themed pinup of Clarissa. I'll have it finished and posted tomorrow. I'm also planning on doing a few more of the "Martial Pinups" series, but I'm thinking of offering commission slots for them too. Basically, I was thinking of having it where one would pick…

Just a Quick Question About an Idea for Commissions

(Copied from journal on my FA profile.) Okay, I have a couple of pics for possible YCHs sketched out and will probably post 'em up for auction later. However, I had an idea for a type of commission and I want to see if it's something that sounds appealing to anybody. The idea is a page of sketches.…

Question About Commissions and YCHs

I've been wondering if, were I to do one or both of these, if any body would be interested. Basically, I'd like to gauge interest in this before I make any sort of decision. I'm considering do a few YCH-type items just to get used to the process as I've never done this sort of thing before and it w…

Species Suggestions

Well, I think there needs to be a bit more variety in the pinups I've been doing. To that end, I'd greatly appreciate some suggestions for different species aside from the red foxes that have dominated the pinups so far. Variety is the spice of life, after all. Besides, it gives me some much needed…

Done With Summer Classes

Just submitted my final assignment to my last class for the summer. Now it's just a few weeks and the fall semester will begin. Oh, and it looks like I'm going to be joining the ranks of the AR15 owners. Nothing too special, just a Del-Ton dissipator upper on a Aero Prec. lower. I had gotten the ur…

Answering Questions (TMI Tuesday/AMA)

Felt like answering questions while I work on some homework for one of my classes. So, feel free to ask me some questions. Can be anything you'd like to ask me about, including stuff about me and/or my characters.

TMI Tuesday/Ask Me Anything

I've done this sort of thing on FA a few times, but I figured I might try it on other sites at least once. So, if there's a question you'd like to ask me, feel free to do so. This is, honestly, more of an opportunity for me to socialize a little with you folks and a chance for you to get to know me…
