I've been thinking the last few days about a lot of things, including my pending projects. The thing is... I'm spending a lot of time and energy in art and stuff that are not really giving me enough satisfactions nor growth as an artist. Also, has proven me that are no good business. And since I wanna live (and really thrive financially) from my art and my creative projects... I decided I will do things a little bit different from now on. 

That being said, I'm focusing more on my "War of 5" project. Firstly, because I really want to finish that story. Secondly, because I believe it will push me as an artist to new heights. 

I will still do ponies and creatures (I love them, and I won't just leave them), but I'm not concentrating on them as much. Also, this means I will have to find a new way to gather money other than adopts and commissions. Let's face it, the last months they have not being working as well as I expected. So... I'm opening a Patreon page to gather some money. I really want to change my Intous for a Cintiq, but I will need around 1000 USD. I think, that will help me work faster and work on better sketches and stuff for my fans. You. ;)

Does this means I'm leaving dA? Absolutely not!!! I love this place, and I'm sticking here, but I will try to do things in a more professional way from now on, meaning less quantity and more quality.

So... be prepared for more "War of 5" art and projects. I'm putting my finger then until I finish it!

At last, here is the newly created insignia of the "Fighting Regents" special operations strike fighter squadron, designated as VFAS-1X by the United States Navy.

The lion, which is lovingly labeled as "Reggie the Regent" and considered the squadron's official mascot, is based on that of the Detroit Lions NFL team.

And, here is a little bit of a background:

Squadron Designation: VFAS-1X

Given Name: "Fighting Regents"

Motto: "Off with one mighty roar!"

Mascot: "Reggie the Regent"

Universal Radio Callsign: "Regent + *Designated Pilot Number*"

NOTE: The squadron commander bears the unofficial callsign "Lion King/Queen," while the second-in-command holds "Tiger King/Queen" in addition to Regents 1 and 2 respectively.

Stations: Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, and Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar, San Diego, California

Aircraft Inventory:

1. F-14D Super Tomcat - Air Defense Interceptor/Strike Fighter (6; 5 operational, 1 in reserve)
2. F/A-18C Hornet - Multirole Strike fighter (2 "A+", 3 "C")
3. F/A-18E/F Super Hornet - Multirole Strike Fighter (8 "E" - 7 which can be used for air shows, 4 "F")
4. F-5 Tiger - Adversary Training (5 "E", 5 "F")
5. EA-18G Growler - Electronic Warfare & Reconnaisance (5)
6. F-35 Lightning II - Next-Generation Strike Fighter (8)
7. F-14E Thundercat - Next-Gen Strike Fighter (6)
8. RF-4X Shadow - Air Defense/Reconnaisance (3)
9. A-7X Raider - Short-Range Precision Ground Strike (3)
10. UAV-1 Predator - Unmanned reconnaisance/strike (2)
11. F-16 Falcon (3 single-seat "A" variant, 2 double-seat "B" variant)
12. T-45 Goshawk - Advanced Pilot Training & Aerobatics Demonstration Jet (8; 5 operational, 3 in reserve)

Summary:

The U.S. Navy's First Experimental Special Operations Strike Fighter Squadron (VFAS-1X), the "Fighting Regents"
is the naval fixed-wing unit answer to the U.S. Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (106th SOAR), the "Night Hunters."

Primarily a land-based strike fighter unit, the "Regents" also stand ready to head out to sea with the Gerald Ford-class
aircraft carrier USS Thomas Jefferson (CVN-83) when needed to conduct maritime-based combat operations. While it functions similarly to a typical naval strike fighter squadron, the unit is regarded as a Strike Fighter Weapons School team much like its regular Navy counterparts in the mainland United States, only it is branched in the far Eastern sector of the world - the Pacific.

Ever weary of performance capabilities, the squadron's pilots and navigators are handpicked throughout
the Navy, Marines, and sometimes the Air Force. Only the finest with outstanding training and battle records meet the cut.
These talented men and women hone their skills through constant training in air-to-air combat, close air support,
reconnaisance, and air-to-ground strikes. Though rigorous in the fighting regimen, the squadron's system is also laxed,
with its personnel enjoying time to thrive, grow, and enjoy life more than anyone else in the military.

In order for the United States's enemies not to know about the existence of this formidable fighting aircraft squadron, the unit is disguised as an aerobatics (aerial stunt and demonstration) team that is on par with the "Blue Angels." In addition, all operational fighter aircraft readily used by the squadron are stored underneath Andersen Air Force Base's surface and can be transited through means of underground tunnels and concealed aircraft elevators located on various parts of the base.

Notes:

- The "Regents" squadron name is based on the mascot of my high school, Reseda High School, which is located at *you guessed it right* Reseda, California.

Decided the group needed something a bit more basic and unified for the logo. This seems to settle the case.
