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.

November Journal (Updated) + Tagged

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 14, 2015, 11:02 AM

Update #1 - I had initially planned to do just one or two journals a month, but as I got tagged and I wanted to cover some updates I decided to do it all here:

Update #2 - Added in some pictures toonartist recently uploaded, and also wanted to wish all my American and Canadian friends and watchers a Happy Thanksgiving.

Life Update

On Tuesday I found out my paternal grandfather had passed on, having died in his sleep at 11pm the previous night. Overall the situation has left me feeling mixed, mainly due to how I'd grown quite distant from a good 75% of my dad's side of the family. This was mainly due to events that emerged from his death in 2004 (an accident for those who aren't aware) where I got to see a very selfish and hurtful attitude and actions from my grand mother, as well as other members of my family siding with her instead of his wife and son. This, along with general apathy from them ultimately lead to me deciding they were no longer worthy of my time.

However I still admired my grandfather, albeit more when I was a child. I lost my maternal grandfather back in 1996, so he was my sole remaining grandfather for a large portion of my life, as well as being one of my few remaining connections to my father after he died. I had known my grandfather was on a downward spiral for a while, both after he lost his wife in 2011 and moved into a home back in Christmas 2013 and if I'm honest I'm glad he is finally at rest. His death has also re-opened some of the wounds I got from losing my maternal grandmother back in June and while I don't feel as broken as I did back then (I generally felt a lot closer to my maternal grandmother, so losing her had more of an impact) he was also my last grandparent.

Update - First of all, a big thank you to everyone who's given me their condolences so far; it means a lot to me. Second I've been given a date for the funeral, the 1st of December. I'm a little apprehensive about it, mainly as I don't really want to face the aforementioned 75% of my dad's family but I want to go to pay my respects to my grandfather, show support to my uncle and his family (aka the only people on that side of the family I truly care about) and to represent my dad. Saying that there has been some family drama (namely my uncle being screwed over slightly by the will) that makes me want to cut out everyone bar him, his wife and sons from my dad's side of the family once all of this is done.

OC Art Plan

I decided earlier today that, starting in December, I plan to dedicate each month to one of my female OCs. My intention is to draw at least one coloured piece of that character, be it digital, on paper or both. If I finish the "main" pic in a decent amount of time I'll also look at drawing other pieces as well, but the main emphasis is to produce something akin to toonartist's various characters and concepts where I show off the character in some kind of action pose. So far I have twelve characters in mind:

  • Theora "Snow" Daemond
  • Mewrah Wilson
  • Norika Olivian
  • Violetta "Velvet" Newent
  • Adrianna Corsack
  • Felicia Pepin
  • Ephea Asheth
  • Zoey Rogen
  • Janine Odonic
  • Celeste Morgana
  • Hazel Newent
  • Monicha

A lot of these will be based on the commissions toonartist has drawn for me of those characters and I'm looking forward to finally showing off some of the ideas I've been working on with his help. Most of these were covered in my "OC Checklist, Information and Trivia" journal, but I do plan for a journal during that month to feature a small bio about them.

There is also "Auris Imzadi", a sister toonartist created for Yuno that I need to speak to him about. Monicha is also tied to a concept I'm still ironing out but I envision her as a rival for Mewrah; I'll be going more into that when I'm ready to unveil more about her ;).

Update - I should mention there is a likelyhood you'll see some of the previous concepts drawn during those months, i.e. "Stairwell Battle" for Snow, "Waiting for the Sun" for Norika etc. I'm hoping by getting pics I've started but never finished done during that month, I should have a chance to do something new and different, maybe a more casual pose for Snow and action based one for Norika. However that may change when I come to do this, especially if I can find a perfect pose or better concept for the character before I start.

Update #2toonartist has recently uploaded some of the pictures from the fourth wave of commissions he's done for me, all of which are characters I've yet to bring to life myself (although one is a character he's created for me):

Once again I feel he's done amazing work on bringing my characters to life, and offering his take on the ideas and concepts I gave to him. I'm hoping to start work on my own pieces of them soon, as well as commissioning artists like kagato007kaeveris and others to do so in the coming months.

Art For Others

On top of my art plan, I will also be looking to draw some OCs for some of the other artists on this site. Granted I'm not sure how this will fit around my plan (especially as it's an idea I came up with today, while the gifts have been on my mind for a few weeks) but I'm sure I'll work something out. As someone who loves other people's OCs, I am keen to draw these characters and dip my toes in other people's ideas. Currently I have in mind:

I'll also speak to toonartist about a character or two I could draw for him. This list will likely grow but as I've said before, it's priority will be less than my aforementioned "Art Plan", especially as I've struggled to get pictures for others done in the past.


Finally I was recently tagged by kaeveris, so:

Age 31

Birthdate 24th June 1984

Crush None

Do I Miss My Last Relationship Nope, mainly as it was a rebound relationship and I was still hung up on the previous one. It took me a while to get over that one.
Am I The Jealous Type It depends, but I try not to be.

Last Time I Cried On the 12th of June. The day before my grandmother - who meant the world to me - passed away suddenly. When I told a friend he said he'd be happy to go to the pub with me so I had someone to talk to.

After leaving work early (I just couldn't carry on doing my job) we met up. Around six hours and eight pints later I broke down into tears because of just how much she meant to me as a person and how much I was going to miss her. It was, however, a wonderful moment as my friend proved to me how much of a good friend he is.

Favorite Song My favourite songs keep changing, but right now:
  • "The Touch - Epic Guitar Remix" by Stan Bush
  • "Ministry of Saints" by Edguy
  • "Down" by Thousand Foot Krutch
  • "True Survivor" by David Hasselhoff

  • "Midnight Kiss" by Kenji Run. He's also a personal and local friend of mine

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.

As I enjoyed the OC Questionnaire I did for Mewrah, would you like to see another and if so, who of? 

2 deviants said One for Norika
1 deviant said One for Snow
No deviants said One for Janine
No deviants said One for Violet
No deviants said One for someone new (i.e. Hazel, Ephea etc.)
No deviants said No thanks
