Yarn GuysI'm always happy when I find a dA gallery of knit or crochet that's made by a guy. It's just rare that guys do needle work in addition to be proud enough of it that they are putting it on the internet for all to see.Yarn Guys1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
So I think these guys deserve some extra attention, them and them or just stop by and leave an encouraging comment.

Safe and Sound :DI got into New York with no big issues. I did miss my flight and had to wait an extra five hours before I got into my correct location XD. But it's all cool My apartment is fricken' amazing! It's part of a house made about 100 years ago :3. I have a huge living room and HUGE kitchen which is in need for a dinner room table and chairs, but I'll get them later. It's a lot bigger then I expected and I'm rather pleased with it. The only downfall so far is that the washing machine and dryer are in the basement and it's a creepy basement XD.

BIG Sale to pay for Vet care for my cat, Is over.Top of page edit!BIG Sale to pay for Vet care for my cat, Is over.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
It has been several weeks since his teeth have been removed, and he is doing splendidly. A quick thank you to all who helped smooth out the expense, and I hope you will be glad to know that he is much happier than he was before.
Total funds received is $59.73 from this sale!
Thanks to everyone who contributed, either by a purchase, or by spreading the word.
I have re-set the prices on items below to their regular levels, and will still gladly sell them to anyone interested,
What was the point of the sale, well, read below.
My cat had to go to the vet for some much needed dental care (he had several bad teeth) and in order to gather the funds to help cover it, I had once again offered stuff up at sale prices.
He is back, and is doing great, but with the cost, things will be tight. *sigh*
The vet bill was $322 and every thing sold will help. (things are still a bit tight, but better)

Patterning!Hey dudes! I just wanted to say I've been patterning avidly, and it's awesome. This pattern is going to be so good all other patterns will look dumb.Patterning!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
But in order to achieve this level of pattern quality, I haven't been getting a whole lot else done. So... I apologize for the lull. A great many parts of the patterning process only need to be done once (I drew and programmed in all the stitch symbols from scratch and will also be making instructional diagrams for each of them! Not to mention my spiffy terms-of-use page and other formatting adventures), so this pattern will probably take longer than all future patterns. Plus I keep finding better ways to do things and having to go back and re-do them everywhere. But when it's done I will release it for free and you can all look at it and have opinions! Even if you don't want to make a sweater full of holes.
Oh, it's for a an open checkerboard hooded sweater which I am designing as I go. It'

Commission Information and Pricing(I am totally recycling an old journal for this. ;D )Commission Information and Pricing10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hello! Here is my commission information!
I know the prices might seem a bit "high" to some of you, but the price is due to time spent on each piece. Since I paint my sculptures, it takes that much longer to finish, as I cannot whip out a sculpture in 15 minutes like some colored clay users. Thank you for understanding.
Please send a note, if you are wanting a commission!
In said note, please detail what you are wanting. If you are wanting me to make something of your own creation, please send reference pictures with the note.
For dragons, please specify if you want specific colors or themes, or if you want it to be left up to me. You can also choose what sort of stone you would want your dragon to be placed on, if even at least the color of it.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Keep in mind, prices go up with detail. Within Reason.
