pawcanada has started a donation pool!
34 / 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.

Weekly Update - 21st of April

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 21, 2014, 10:26 AM
Anything interesting happen this week?

Sorry this update is late. Saturday I went to a BBQ with some friends and ended up feeling really tired so I pretty much got into bed about an hour or so after I got back. I was going to be away on East Sunday, spending the day with my mum and her boyfriend but ended up sleeping in later than I planned which didn't leave me much time yesterday morning. Next week's update will also be a bit late as I'll be away most of Saturday at a friend's wedding and then spending Sunday at my mum's again due to back problems leading to me needing to see my chiropractor on Monday morning.

As I mentioned in last week's journal, my job role has recently changed. After the first week I've found myself feeling more relaxed, less stressed and in general more willing to draw. While I have nothing I consider to be worthy of submission, I have been doing some work fixing/creating the second wip of Meritza piece for BigDead93 and following on from some feedback CMBaggs has given me, looked at re-working the "Waiting for the Sun" piece of Noir. My intention of doing a "topless and proud" sketch sadly didn't pan out well, as the pose in the initial sketch didn't turn out the way I planned (although I have been able to re-cycle elements into the Noir piece) but I hope to return to it at some point.

Current Projects

After receiving some excellent feedback on the Meritza piece for BigDead93, I find myself now filled with more vigor regarding getting this and the other trades done so I can pay off my "debt" (apologies again to those I have left waiting) and move onto to some other projects. I've also had a few ideas on what to do for my trades with CMBaggs and ZAKKIDO.

My Characters

If people ever want to draw my OCs they are more than welcomed to do so without having to request my permission first. You are of course more than welcome to contact me first if you want to run any ideas past me, but in general I'm open to anything, i.e. re-designs, using their abilities in new ways, fan service/ecchi style stuff etc., so long as it doesn't portray my character being portrayed out of character or being severely beaten/killed by someone else. This has happened to a friend of mine many a moon ago where a villain he had spent his series building up as a formidable threat was easily dispatched of like some monster of the week.

Want to contact me on social media? If so:

Twitter -
Tumblr -
Steam -…
Skype/MSN - pawcanada/
XBox Live - pawcanada
PS3 - pawcanada84
3DS -

I do also have a Facebook account, but this one is a bit more personal as I mostly use it to interact with friends and colleagues so if you'd like to add me on there please drop me a note first and please don't be offended if I choose not to add you. It probably means I've not gotten to know you that well yet.

Weekly Feature

I first discovered Koimii through our mutual friend CMBaggs, after the latter drew her character Lulu during her "20 Requests" last year. Due to Lulu's design I became interested in learning more of Koimii's art which in turn lead to me discovering another excellent artist who does a great job of showing the real power of traditional means of creating artwork.

This is also the last in my current "wave" of "Friend Features". Next week's will be based around showing off some of the amazing gifts and requests I've received over the last year or so and then after that I'll be looking to feature some of the people who watch me while others will be of excellent artists who I watch and try to support.
