This last batch of SYAC strips has really worn me out mentally. I think I’m gonna need to take a small break to recharge my batteries after this. I’ve been finding myself getting increasingly pissed off, angry, hostile, and irritated, even at things that don’t really deserve the frustration. Primarily as a result of having to re-explain incredibly simple concepts over and over and over again, as if my art doesn’t speak for itself.
On top of this, I’ve got a new job, a big project in the works, commissions to finish, and everything else that having a life entails. I don’t feel like I should have to re-explain myself SO MANY TIMES over something as simple as “women are people, treat them as such.” Nor do I feel like I should be sent death-threats over proposing such a radical idea either.
It’s so incredibly sad and pathetic that saying “hey,
Data CollectedSo this past week or so I’ve been experimenting to see what works best for both promoting my website, while also making sure that I don’t alienate my fans or watchers. I’ve tried a couple things, some which worked, some which didn’t. I’ve also been given some good advice from my webmaster and from reading the various comments about what to do and I think I’ve come to a good conclusion on how to move forward.Data Collected5 months ago in Personal More Like This
The good news is that those preview pages (while they did provide extra views) are gonna be discarded. So no worries about me spamming up your inbox with only a fraction of what you could be faving and reblogging. Ok? Sound good? Cool! Back to work!
Is college the best thing for you?I don't know how many people out there know this, but I never finished college. I attended for roughly 3 years, but it eventually got too expensive for what I was getting out of it. So, I dropped out.Is college the best thing for you?8 months ago in Personal More Like This
At the time, I was slightly ashamed, but it turned out to be for the best. There's a bit of a stigma attached to those who don't follow through on their education, but in the art world, a degree itself often isn't worth the paper it's printed on. In my relatively short career, I've never once been asked if I attended college or even if I have a degree, and I'm not the only one who'll tell you that. Your portfolio and experience are what speaks for you. You can finish art school, but if your portfolio is no good, the jobs won’t come.
Today, because I chose this route, I’m debt free and I've worked for companies like Lionsgate, Warner Bros. and the Moving Picture Company, opportunities I might not have had if I stayed in school. Now, I'm not saying don't pursue a college e
Do Not EngageThis is a notice to all my fans.Do Not Engage1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since I've returned to making SYAC again there's been a bit of a resurgence of trolls. There are a lot of fake accounts floating around out there with my name attached, and many of them are posting alternate SYAC strips and my old fetish work. While they are fairly obvious to spot, just to be safe I am writing to remind everyone that these accounts are not mine.
DeviantArt has made it more complicated to report copyright infringement issues, and I simply don't have the time to sift through the troll's gallery of re-uploads, find the original URL's (if any even exist anymore), and file DMCA on each and every post. It takes weeks to get anything accomplished and it wastes the time of DA moderators who have to sift through those individual reports. And even if I am successful in getting the troll banned, they'll just create a second account and come right back with another bucketload of altered art and start all over again. That's wasted time and e

I'm being fairly inactive on here, but as it turns out my body would prefer to be active in the real world. My back starts to hurt if I sit at a desk for several days in a row, so I've made a deal with it to only draw every other day which is slowing me down considerably, and I was never fast with pen and paper to begin with.
So to the people who worried about me, that's all there is to it. No big problems at the moment. Just leaving the desk more.
Besides that not much is going on. Recently came back from two weeks in Denmark immediately followed by a week in Wales which was highly exiting and fun. If you are in need of an old castle, Wales got plenty to go around (apparently they have more castles than any other country in the world)
December will be filled with more traveling, but November shall be nothing but relaxing and lazy, so hopefully I can get some proper work done.

SO IVE BEEN noticing my cat jumping onto the counter a lot lately when Ive gone to sleep, and today I finally caught her and how intrested she seemed to be on that counter. I sneak towards her,and behold there sit a tiny mouse.
xD AND FINALLY AFTER A LOT OF chasing this bastard up and down behind my fridge and finally made it run out of there and under this other funiture which i had a long box laying, It captured itself. Not as smart xD but atleast I managed to rip the box and hoist it up so it couldnt run back out. WOOT time to go outside and let it back into the wild. FAR from my house.
hereis the bugger, it was lucky I was the one who captured it and not my cat. Shes just laying beside the box now hunting it jealously xD
Ive never really had a mouse inside before which stayed for that many days, im pretty sure its because of my bird wh

Good News, Bad NewsSo the good news is that the new technique of posting a preview image with a link to my website does indeed generate quite a bit more of extra activity to my ad revenue generating pages. From the few tests I’ve done so far I get on average an extra 2-3,000 views than when I post the comic on DA with a link.Good News, Bad News5 months ago in Personal More Like This
The bad news is that this means it’s in my best interest to post more stuff on my various websites, and not on DA. Which is problematic because I enjoy interacting with my fans here on DA far more than I do on my website. I like having everything kinda all together in one place and this new technique kinda disrupts that flow. While it’s in my best interest, it also kinda feels a little cheap and annoying.
Maybe I’ll be able to combine the two at some point, updating the older previews with the full comics/art like a few weeks down the road, but I don’t know. It’s also sadly likely in my best interest to update all my older strips that are still po

Wooot! If anyone are curious why so much colors in my art lately, I am just taking a break from work. Colors make me happy though, and I am trying not to draw, but since I love drawing that is hard >.< Anyway so for people who have bought commissions do not fret! I am just having a tiny break from work and will continue finishing your orders as soon as my break is over. So if you are wondering why i am pooping out colors and fishies that is why xD. Its just good to take some breaks some time and just design crazy colorfull stuff.
I have not really talked much about this yet but I finally found a better home for my budgie suppe. I felt so sorry for her having to stay here when I had so much work to do the last month and since I got another job aswell, less time would be spent at home. So I wanted to find someone who had time for her, and I DID. I found a lady which had been a breeder before and she knew so much about budgi

You guys... I just told my mom that I like yaoi.
I just told her I like guys making out with guys.
I just told her me and my sister like yaoi.
... Like, ya'll don't understand. I just told her that I like YAOI!!! I've been hiding that secret for EIGHT FREAKING YEARS and I FINALLY decided to tell her today. Surprisingly, she didn't blow up at me. She was quiet and thought about it. She just said "Whatever makes you happy. If you can profit from it, then that's an added bonus." Maybe she had gas or something, or maybe she actually accepted the idea, but either way, Merry fucking Christmas to me.

PMV w/ other's Finnedyrs - CLOSED (FINISHED)Okay, let me explain. Since I am having so much fun drawing these Finnedyrs, I want an excuse to draw some of other people's designs! I just them so much! It's absolutely free, so just comment asking what part you want.PMV w/ other's Finnedyrs - CLOSED (FINISHED)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1.) Comment saying:
Finnedyr + Ref sheet
Any preferences on their pose, facial expression, where they are, what they're doing, etc
(And some parts will require 2 Finnedyrs, so if that's the case please give me 2 Finnedyrs and their refs)
2.) You may take one part for every Finnedyr that you have. (If you have 2 Finnedyrs, you can take 2 parts) But just one part PER the individual Finnedyr. So if I have a Finnie named Marise and a Finnie named Brackish, I get 2 parts, one for Marise and one for Brackish. Makes sense? (And please use common sense. Don't create 5 more Finnedyrs just for this PMV please)
3.) If it has a red bullet, it's taken. If it has a green bullet, it's open.
I will be using World so Cold by 12 Stones.

I KNEW IT GUYS!!! I'M SO ELATED AND RELIEVED I CAN BARELY WORD! I'm almost in tears...I AM in tears!!!
I knew it, old man sage spoke to BOTH the boys at the same time, he's giving them BOTH his powers!!! IT'S HAPPENING!!! I'm...crying ><!!! It's just like I predicted in my last journal entry: Naruto will gain the power of the Bijuu and Sasuke will gain the visual prowess of the Rinnegan. And the Sage admits that ignoring Indra in the past is what caused so much trouble, so he's -entrusting- this equally to Sasuke as to Naruto!!!
I always believed Sasuke would come good, that he would figure things out. All the haters can go shove it. All the people who scoffed at the idea of there being two sages at once can lick it. IT'S HAPPENING, RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!! Can you believe...I beleive it but my heart and my feels can't, they're being overloaded with joy and so much fucking epicness I can't even explain it.

I am not here on deviantART for anyone, I do not draw to please anyone, nor am I here to be used as a feature machine
This rant obviously does not include trades, gifts or commissions xD
The biggest thing that irks me is that people think, just because a lot of people have decided to follow me, I somehow have a obligation to use that to "help" other artists with amazing art get recognized. This is bullshit. Its not my or anyone elses responsibility to make anyone get attention.
IF someone really wants attention, I think its fair that they work for it instead of sitting on their l azy ass waiting for others to do it for them. Remembering back to my own first months here on dA it took me atleast 4 years of being very active. I MEAN uploading stuff almost everyday/commenting back to people, drawing trades and gifts.
