OMG which one of you did this?!
THANK YOU!! 😂😂😂
Life and Manga UpdateI'm going to try to be as thorough as I can. I know that I ave essentially just vanished from most places on the internet except for maybe one or two. Let me explain.
I'm kinda disappointed in myself right now and fighting through a depression and art block. I have learned that I am incredibly under-prepared for this manga stuff. I'm nowhere near ready despite almost 7 or 8 fucking years of preparation. So many years of work and I'm still not ready. I'm greatful for my internship and it has been a great experience and insanely valuable to me.
However it has made me see that I don't really know much about what I'm doing and have a lot more work to do. This kinda of hurts because I am 27 years old with little accomplished. It feels like some sort of identity crisis because I was writing in my personal journal one day and realized that I was so attached to Naor, I don't know what to do without it. I have ZERO idea what to do next. I don't fucking know. I don't know what I am or who
San Diego Comic Con 2018!!
Hey everyone! I'll be at Booth 5336 during San Diego Comic Con.
I'll be drawing all day long from the time to Exhibitor Hall opens till it closes. I was able to work out a deal with Wacom and Clip Studio so feel free to drop by and say hi!! You'll get to see me work live and then ask me any questions, comments, whatever. I LOVE talking to people while I draw.
See you there!
Nukerooster Commission BoostHEY So my buddy NukeRooster needs commissions. Their tablet broke and they are on a spare for now. They are INSANELY diligent in commissions and have a good turnaround time. Sexy arts.
Here are some recent commissions:
In Chicago for C2E2!!Stop by and come see me at table 512!! (next to image and skybound) It was kinda a last minute decision and Tokyopop made it happen for me, so PLEASE come on by! I will have a dark green TPop shirt and maybe a grey jacket. I have red hair but like to where a hat lol
Changes to Patreon and other thingsSo as a warning to everyone,
I have taken down my creator page on Patreon.
I do not feel I am posting as much as I should, nor that I really have the time or energy to manage it right now. For anyone who I support, you will still get your pledges from me. I didn't totally disable my account, I only took down my creator side. I'll remain a patron.
This is in an effort to become more active here. I have stopped posting most here because I was trying to post everything Naor and WIP wise to Patreon. It will be much easier and hopefully stir up interest again as I post here more often. I haven't abandoned dA, I just became exclusive to Instagram and Patreon mostly. That will change.
DeviantART, while changing a lot in the last few years, is my largest following anywhere and it isn't fair to give you guys the cold shoulder like I have. I have mailed out a lot of what I owe to people, but I am still working on all the main I have.
In addition I also have a LEAVE and START date for my internsh
Naor Anniversary! 8 yearsSOOOO
February 14th has a VERY special meaning to me
February 14th was when my first project containing Ahk, my main character from Naor was due. I always have used this date as the first day I started working on Naor because that is the day my professor asked me to write more about him and his story. So I have been, for like, 8 years now!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?!!
8 LONG years on this project. Granted it is in the middle of a reboot
and conversion over to a manga, but hey, it has made a lot of
strides in only 8 years. I have a lot more updates on that, but I
at least wanted to get that out there.
If you don't know what Naor is, it is a comic/manga I have been working on for many years. It is essentially a murder mystery and supernatural themed story where the two main characters are not even human! I really enjoy making the series and if you want to read what I have done, please go here: https://ahkward.deviantart.com/gallery/58799853/Naor-Comic-Pages
Please note I only started maki
Life updateHEEEEEY guys! I'm still here, still alive, mostly. xnx
Here is stuff I will cover here:
1. Life update
2. Commission update
3. Naor update REALLY IMPORTANT
1. LIFE UPDATE
So I mentioned in a previous journal that I was promoted to Assistant Manager at my IRL job. That has pretty much taken over my life like I feared it would. I worked on every single freaking Holiday:
NewYear's Eve and
I finally got my first real day off on Wednesday the 10th, however now that I have health insurance I spent it mostly sleeping and at the hospital getting a general wellness check. They found some stuff and there are more tests tomorrow, so hopefully it isn't anything to worry about! lol I'm certainly not worried. XD
However that said I sincerely apologize for being absent. Now that the holiday season is over I can finally get some breaks. Yes, breaks AFTER the holiday because I didn't get days off, not eve
Moved!Not accounts, just houses.
So I unexpectedly moved October 21st and 22nd. I was NOT prepared in any way whatsoever, so for the last week or so I have been scrambling trying to get all of my stuff to my new place and get unpacked and back to work on commissions and comics. I didn't do a very good job. ROFL
1. YES, Naor Chapter 2 is late. Sorry about that! I had planned to get the three pages I was supposed to release on the 23rd done and posted. Well that didn't happen. I haven't been able to really draw much due to the large amount of overtime lately. I WILL post new pages on MONDAY, IDK if I have to not sleep this weekend at all! OTL
2. I know 10 to 20 hours a week of overtime isn't very much compared to some people, but between unpacking and working overtime, I haven't had the energy when I get home (shifts are 10hrs of standing with NO breaks). For some fucking reason South Dakota doesn't have mandated breaks (not even for lunch). like WTF? How can this be true?
3. Commissions.... u
ESP: Berserker Virus (Scripts)I think I won't be able to continue the story for ESP for a while... so I decided to show the script of one of the important parts of the first chapter here. This script contains the information of "Berserker virus" in my comic which most people mistake it with "Zombie virus". This may seem like a spoiler but since this isn't actually about storyline, just information, I think it's fine. It's gonna be a while to see the comic form of this.
Okay, here it goes. If you find any grammar mistakes, please tell me so I can correct them.
(This part starts when Speed manages to get inside the abandoned laboratory.)
J: *pant* *pant*
J: Made it...
J: A main computer! If this works, maybe it could save me some time to find data.
J: Come on, come on, please work!
J: Good, as expected. All the data is in this.
J: So we got the name wrong after all... "Rebirth Virus", a virus that kills its host and steal the body. It drains the host's blood and use the blood it d

BIRTHDAY WISHES AND GIFTS
My heartfelt thank you for all your kind Birthday wishes, it has moves me so very much! My Birthday has been a wonderful one on DA and I am very grateful, you are awesome!

The purpose of this journal is to feature my birthday gifts. In the next journal - hopefully before the Holidays - I will make a huge feature, trying to thank as many people as I can.
Happy 16th Birthday DeviantArt!As we strive together towards a more creative life, sharing our creations with one another for discussion, we inevitably contribute to breaking down barriers of the mind that plague others from beginning their own creative journey. This is a great positivity that we collectively contribute to society together, for 16 effing years as of today!!!!!!!!! If you can believe it.
I wanted to raise a quick toast to unicorns, ponies and bloodlines of drawn horses. Big ups to llamas, hodor and pikachu. A special celebration for art that some find exciting and others find strange, because those artworks truly push the boundaries. And of course to the best of the best gems from our community, that everyone would agree are great contributions of art in pop culture.
Thank you for making DeviantArt great for 16 years!
I especially want to thank our extended family of team members past and present. Sometimes it is rock and roll around here, sometimes it is the highest of highs and other times its just
