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.

The Commission Issue



As I mentioned a few journals back, I've been a little frustrated recently regarding an artist I had been working with last year. Prior to when I stopped communication back in June, I had something along the lines of six to ten outstanding pieces, some initially requested a year or so back! I've honestly lost count of the number because of how long it's been although I will hold up my hand and admit it was lack of self control that partially lead to this situation. For a while I'd been toying with the possibility of calling out the artist on here or somewhere similar, confronting the artist or just letting it slide as a bad investment. Last week I also made a forum post - forum.deviantart.com/community… - asking people for advice. Ultimately I have decided to drop it and move on with my life. As annoying as it is and, along with any potential claim I have to name and shame the artist, I feel it's a can of worms I just don't want to open. I've also taken it as a lesson to refrain from commission more than one piece from an artist (unless it's part of a bundle, like I do with toonartist who I might add I also trust A LOT more than the other artist).

Tagged



MR-CREEPING-DEATH recently tagged me in a new journal game he thought up - "Chose a song that you think is your 'Theme Song' then share it and tag some friends to do the same!". This is actually a slightly difficult choice. Before it's always been "Super Villain" by Powerman 5000 (it's even my ring tone) but these days I've warmed up to "Midnight Kiss" my by friend, Kenji Run. However I think for me it has to be "The Touch (Epic Guitar Mix)". If I ever made a movie, this would be both the song that plays when the hero is about to open a can of whoop ass and the main credits theme:



I tag: toonartist, akeemsam, Cytoscourge, AmonZone, CMBaggs, Kanju and StaciNadia 

New Art



I have a few pieces in the works, but the one I'm aiming to finish soon is the final version of the Violet "Velvet" Newent piece:

Violet 'Velvet' Newent by pawcanada

This is an amalgamation of the two previous sketches, where I take the best of both. Granted my hope had been to try and fix it as well, but as I am still learning how to use Sketchbook Pro that may prove a little more difficult thank I expected. It is still rough; there are some overlapping lines I'll be looking to remove before the finished version but hopefully it'll be done soon. I've also found a possible replacement for Photoshop, Krita, which I may use to colour this piece although I am keen to play with the colouring options in SBP as well.

Granted I have gone into a bit of an art slump recently, namely due to a seemingly lack of energy. Over the last month or so I've been looking at reducing the amount of junk and unhealthy food and drink I consume in an effort to lose weight. This has had a great effect and, along with my re-sparked interest in gym training, I'm probably close to going down a waist size again. However I also find when the evening hits (i.e. my usual drawing time) I'm often drained of energy and struggling to stay awake. A friend did suggest to me that it could be because of me new diet but I've also had a couple of hectic weeks at work again which I don't feel is helping. Hopefully as my body gets used to this I'll have slightly more energy to work on art in the coming months.

Recent Commissions & Gifts



Finally I've decided to do a small feature for some of the pieces I've received as commissions and gifts. It's not all of them; I'll be including some more in the next journal but for now:

Operation Norika - Sketch by CytoscourgeNorika Olivian by KanjuCommission- pawcanada (2) by PactMakerViolet Commission by akeemsamJanine Odonic by toonartistViolet Newent by toonartistHazel Newent by toonartistYuno Imzadi by toonartistSilrun Pepin by toonartistRa-Silrun by toonartistHephaestus-Yuno by toonartistDean Deathrose Maxwell by toonartist

All of them are amazing pieces, and I would encourage you to both check them out and the rest of the artist's gallery as well.

And before anyone asks, no, I am not looking to purchase any new commissions soon :P. There are a number of artists I've spoken to already that I hope to commission once I've been paid, as well as working more with PactMaker and toonartist in the future. As I've said before, asking me if I want to commission you will automatically result in a no.
