Art is like telling a story with your emotions. If you can get yourself lost in the image's emotions and tale, chances are your peers will experience the same.

Opening Emergency Commissions for Headshots/Busts

So, with that post dump taken care of, I'm opening commissions for headshots, busts, and a perhaps a couple full pieces for those who want a bit more. Part of my emergency is that my last paycheck did not go through to the bank because I had to quickly close and open a new bank account, and the sys…

Bit of a Life Update

Sorry I've been quiet for so long folks! A lot has been happening, both exciting and high-energy. I wanted to post a journal on my birthday about being an artist for 20 years (wow! The thought still floors me o_O ) as well as a ref for a particular character that's been in the works for many, MANY…

Opening 5 slots for Sample Eyevitars

I know I'm jumping the gun for my own statement about getting gifts and previous commissions done before opening more, however I feel these are small enough to not quite qualify as full blown ones. I am in need of some samples to attach to the commission advertisement of the avatars like the one I…

Hope everyone's had a Merry Christmas!

And lots of good time with family and friends. I wish mine went a bit better, we didn't eat dinner until about 10pm, and gifts weren't opened until about midnight... Mostly this is due to issues with both of my brothers - one going completely AWOL with communication, the other also being a no-show…

New Avatar, PSA, and a troubling thing..

<_< F5 for new avvie I worked on instead of trying to get Christmas gifts done in time to send out with my dad before he leaves to visit his parents so I can relax about it this year... Not quite revealing who/what said character is. Did have a bit of fun doing it though - especially making the eye…

Opening 2 traditional Commission Slots (2/2 Left)

Gah, forgot to post about my commissions here and on my commission account over on DA, so I'm opening two more slots to make up for it T_T; Mostly this is to cover gas and food until my next paycheck. Going to try to take on a couple of traditional pieces as an experiment. Samples I can do either f…

Custom Bath Bombs - Offering Slots

Little something I've been experimenting with right before bed most nights is the creation of bath bombs. Though, for ease of my own mind I'm calling them 'Bath Candies'. I'd like to open up slots for custom scented bath candies, as I can make them fairly quickly. They won't be colored for the time…

Situation has escalated

It was bad enough with the verbal abuse I've been receiving on this day to day rollercoaster of emotions borne out of the deliverer's lack of sleep and food flipping between a good day of praise and acknowledgement of all I do around the house, to utter hell of where I apparently do nothing but suc…

Things have not been well.

I know I've been really quiet for some time. Especially in the department of what's going on in my personal life. All I will say for the moment that my ability to do any art has been greatly injured along with spirit and self-esteem. Can't even post anything problem-related on my main account witho…

Opening a few commission slots - 2/4 OPEN

Due to a very sudden shift in my reiki class timing, my first course starts today in about an hour. I checked my bank account for what I can pull out at the time to start covering the cost, and I am hurting from some very large sudden transactions I didn't anticipate happening. I've completed two c…

When you hear 'Maine' you think of -

Bit of a query for you folks as a kind of research into a project that I'm hoping will take off, and possibly net in some extra funds from the local shops in good old tourist-trap coastal Maine. I was wondering what comes to mind for you guys when you think about Maine, whether you've been here bef…

Doing some fund figuring (commission suggestions?)

Pleh, I promise I do aim to stream today, unless something happens and second party decides to null the agreement in favor of work as the last two weeks have been. I want to knock my list back down to two or three standing commissions so tomorrow can focus on the sketchbook(s). Been eyeballing the…

Whee Dentist - And Therapy Gliders!

Bleugh, after several years of not having serious dental work, and almost six months after the panic attack I had trying to get back into the seat, I now officially have a new filling. Next session will have three others filled with a back-to-back cleaning chasing after it to combat my advanced dec…

12 Days.. man..

Until I turn one year closer to the quarter-century mark, and two months before my 8th anniversary on DA, and being officially involved with the online community beyond that certain petsite game every kid is drawn to before they seem to grow out of it.. .. And typing with bandaged fingers due to we…

Creature Design Commissions - OPEN!

Edit - Ahehe.. oops, wrote this late at night so I wasn't thinking 100% coherently and forgot a couple things ^_^; Samples will be done soonish (hopefully before I have to go drive a family friend down to DC). Creature/Character Designs! I've been making great progress so far this month in completi…

Furgather Anyone?

I'm on there as Taesolieroy. I'm not sure what all I'll do with it as I'm hardly active on Facebook as it is! ^_^; Maybe if they don't have the same thing about owning any content posted on there I'll put things on it. It looks really promising as a new site - and may be an alternate means to keep…

Been a rough week

Apologies everyone for being silent still and not quite producing yet. This week has just been... I don't know how to even start to describe it, but the stress has been mounting to the point sugar (ie candy) is starting to look good again. That's a near-sure death sentence for me if I go near them…

Still settling back into new/old home

Hey guys, Sorry for being silent in regards to the whole transition process. Many things are still in boxes as we try to re-find our pattern and flow in life in a three-person household. Stressful? Certainly, but what aspect of life isn't stressful? It's how we change, how we adapt if we choose to…

Flying to Georgia for pet 'n stuff retrieval

Tomorrow morning I hop a bus to shuttle down to Boston airport and fly back to Atlanta to reunite with my animals and bring them along with my belongings to Maine. I miss my pets :C Haven't been able to snuggle up with my gliders or beardies for a month. I may be on-or-off a bit online during this…

Major Life Metamorphisis

A few of you were aware of when I was traveling to midcoast Maine, and a slightly larger number has heard about the medical emergency that had arisen and threatened my life. What was supposed to be a one week visit with family morphed into a two week dental emergency with an on-the-fly cleaning wit…

What do you see in an Art Hero?

I've heard this term crop up a few times over the last year and it really has my curiosity piqued. What do you consider to be an art hero in the artists you watch? Is it their style? The stories behind the image? Technique? Boldness to try new things and push the envelope every time? If you have an…

Just want to curl in a tight ball right now

Ever had those dreams where no matter what kind of dream/nightmare in their subject or what form you're in you're always running from someone/something? You run so long you can actually feel yourself fatiguing and the fear mounting of being caught, the drive to keep just out of reach of whatever is…

Little PSA about my art and RPing with me.

It's been an increasingly disturbing occurrence that has been happening this last year and I can't really keep quiet about this any more. In regards to character design commissions- I cannot stress this enough - it really really bothers me if someone goes and alters any pre-concept sketch I've done…

Quick elemental deity question

Kind of a more informal poll (and because there isn't enough space on polls to write this kind of thing) in regards to one of the stories I work on while at work. When you hear of an element relating to a bird species which do you picture suiting the following elements - Aether (star/light) Fire Ea…

Birthday Day-off!

First off thanks to everyone who's wished me a happy b-day both on Skype and here! I'm still kind of processing the whole experience of "People! Where did you come from o.o" As I'm used to maybe one or two people talking at any given time ^_^; Today was also a boon thanks to the weather, I called i…

Plans for this Week

Wheeee watch me typo as I type with stiff morning fingers before work! In regards to commission progress I have currently two remaining commissions of the non-sketchbook variety that need to be sketched (one of them is not on the list as it's pet-site related), the others are all either sketched or…

Valentines Meme

Saw this floating around and figured I'd at least post this meme (normally I'll fill out an interesting one privately but never post it). I'll follow up shortly if I can with what I have planned this week in regards to an upcoming birthday and commissions on another journal. 1: Do you have a crush…

Merry Christmas and plans for next year

Hope everyone's had a good Christmas so far! Mine started out glum with work, but today I was pleasantly surprised to find that my family had pooled money for a group gift of CS6 Photoshop :D! After last year I had kind of given up on accepting or expecting anything even though I normally bust my b…

Radioactive Snake Dream...

What comes to mind when you hear this 'business' name for an artist? A couple have heard the backstory as to why this coinage of words, but I want to know from you guys, the rest of my watchers, what you think of it?

Fraud Attempt

I'm really not pleased about this.. I was working on some owed projects when I got a call from my bank today. A couple days ago someone in Massachusetts tried to use my card info to make a $150 purchase at a Target. My guess was for either furniture, or electronics for a bill like that. Because my…

With the last few weeks of depression and tooth pains and the feeling of just plain questioning my own self-worth in the field of friends.

A little experiment (fun thing for you to do)

After two nights straight of livestreaming 4-6 hours my wrist is feeling a little fatigued in a simple matter of even writing. Currently I'm wearing an Ace Bandage makeshift brace to restrict the movement of my wrist while I work so I won't aggravate it. That being said I remember talking with a wa…

Worried (reptile problems)

So.. been depressed all day, but that's another matter. Over the last month one of my ladies, Natesa, has been having unusual panic attacks.. I can't figure what is going on as her habitat has been unchanged over the year I've had her, and she only ate within the month with it being winter and her…

Where do you think I'm at?

Haha, I'm not asking you guys to guess where I sit commission-wise - I'm still working away at that list!
