pawcanada has started a donation pool!
39 / 2,396
I'm keen to extend the membership Toonartist gave me at Christmas, so I've decided to modify this donation pool to see if I can get the points necessary to do so.

If I can improve my art production process I may look at doing simple, basic, cheap points commissions but I will cross that bridge when I feel ready.

You must be logged in to donate.

General Update - 05/10/2014

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 5, 2014, 2:02 PM
Been a while since my last update journal so I felt it was about time to write one (not that there is much to say at the moment).

Internet Down Time

As an added bonus, my company has been providing me with my internet. Alas they've told me a few days ago that they will no longer do this, feeling it's an unfair advantage, which is fair Annoying sure but fair. I've had a shop around and decided on a new supplier but I need to first call up whom I'm currently with (they've VERY expensive hence why I'll be switching) to get the details necessary to do so, then give them to my new supplier. Some sources say it can take up to a week, while others a few hours but I thought I'd give a quick heads up in case you don't hear from me in a while. Yes I do occasionally check dA when I'm at work or out and about, but it's usually to add pictures I wish to properly comment on and favourite at a late date to my various "come back to" folders. I try to avoid commenting on stuff at work, as usually I want to go into a degree of detail with my comments (especially on work for me) and even if I don't, have accidentally angered people when I did just that but still did a three word comment and favourite on a random stamp or something similar. The same will also apply to some f the replies in my inbox; I do plan to reply to you but when the moment is right.

Current Projects

I am planning to use this down time to fully get on top of some of the pictures I want to do/am working on. Below you'll see where I am on the current picture, Waiting for the Sun, which I uploaded to my stash earlier. Until with other "post-WIP" pictures, I actually went back to my sketch book and re-draw the piece, scanned it and gone from there, instead of tweaking and modifying the existing lines. I'm much happier with the results and hope to have the completed second wip done very soon.

Other Things

I've been meaning to move away from the Snow/Norika/Mewrah focus that I've been doing for a while, not only to bring in the fourth female to my collection of main heroines, but to also add in the two bad girls, the Thorn sisters Hazel and Zoe/Velvet that I adopted off thompsonakatom a few weeks back and maybe even one of my MALE characters (shock horror!). I've spoken to some people about commissioning them to do their own take on the character's design, similarly to what I did with thompsonakatom and what others like CMBaggs, toonartist and PactMaker have done. I find it quite interesting seeing what others do with my characters, especially when I step back saying "As long as these aspects of their design are kept, go nuts" as they ofter offer ideas I never considered (i.e. Snow's orange eyes which were suggested by CMBaggs, Noir's jewelery and metal chain belt that toonartist included or Mewrah's "Aeroblade" nickname and the idea of her using wind to help lift her heavier swords that PactMaker came up with). While I will ultimately come up with my own final design, it will draw heavily from what others have done and suggest; the eventual Mewrah picture will be a perfect example of my intention. As mentioned I have spoken to a few people and I have a few more in mind once I hear back from them and possibly after I've paid off a few bills or been paid.

Finally, yes I do have Smash Brothers for the 3DS. If you want my friend code, let me know and I will add you.

I am an beginner/amateur artist looking to improve his skills and develop his own cartoony style. I tend to focus more on original characters than anything else but may branch out when my skills are better.

Do you find you get a "Creative Backlog" if you don't produce anything after a while? If so, what kind?

No problem :D. I've yet to have a proper look at your gallery but it's very good from what I have seen.

And sure. I'd be interested in seeing what you have in mind, so drop me a note so we can discuss this further.
