It is what it is, I suppose. =( Finally got word back that the HD I sent down south is lost. No data was recoverable so I'm tough out of luck when it comes to anything creative I've worked on between 2017 to 2020. This also goes for anything I've collected between then, be it other people's art and stuff that at least meant something to me. The biggest tragedy of course is losing my .PSD files of art I've drawn in that timeframe, including commissions. And then there's the family photos... I know I've been over this before but a guy can still grieve. I'm not gonna let it get me down, though. There's too much misery in the world already that does that so I'm just going to focus on what I do have and continue from there. Again, the one saving grace I do have is I didn't lose any of my writings, which probably would have killed me if that weren't the case. So, onwards and upwards! lol, looking on the bright side, I have the funds now to put together a decent prize pool for an art

Just floating this out there but who would be interested in an art competition for Myar? I'm still contemplating on what the prize pool will be but this would be the first time I've wanted to host one of these and there will be judges to help me with deciding the winners. That said, should Myar be the focus? Should I open the floor for other original characters I've created over the years? If that be the case I'll increase the prize pool to accommodate them! At minimum, we're likely talking around $50 to $300. Depends on the feedback I get. =)

Fun fact: This year will mark the 10th anniversary since Myar's creation. For those new to my work, she remains quite possibly my most popular character since I began my art career. This, of course, is debatable! I like to think it's a close race between Klaus & Shae or Evaryr & Kalysia. While the first couple have certainly gotten a lot more love over the years, the nelri lovers have a special place in many hearts, including my own. So, about the derpy math. It's strangely bad on two fronts! Last year I said it was Myar's 8th anniversary when Myar was created in 2011. ... and I've been getting her birthday wrong half the time. >_

Hey FYI since you're a fan of Skies of Arcadia, collectibles company First4Figures is opening preorders for a beautiful officially licensed polystone statue of Aika next week on September 21, spread the word to other Skies fans if you can, here's their teaser video:

Will be interesting to see the price tag on it, certainly! May just get one. =D

First4Figures is priced very reasonably for the limited edition hobby collectible polystone statue market, I would expect a statue of this size and detail to be within the $200-$250 price range, which is comparable to other officially licensed statues of a similar size and complexity that they've sold for Nintendo, Konami, FromSoft, Namco, etc. These are heavy, delicate, hand-painted, large, one-of-a-kind works, and in my experience as a long-time customer are well worth the price. Also consider these are one-and-done runs: once F4F sells them, they will never do another run of this statue again, which adds to their exclusivity and rarity. Their previous statue of Vyse is now impossible to purchase anywhere, so now may be your only chance to get this statue at a regular price. For example, take their "Link on Epona" bronze statue from Twilight Princess, which originally sold for $450 and is now regularly found for sale on eBay at prices of $4000+, the entry price maybe prohibitive for some but depending on the piece and the market they can be a very good investment, besides being beautiful pieces of art.

Well... I estimate the price will roughly be $700 when I finally get it here to Aussieland. x_x

... ah, what the hey. Not like us SoA fans ever get anything anyway.

On the bright side, too, they did hint we'll get Fina and Vyse 2.0, so I'm pumped.

Happy New Year! :)

Happy New Year, Ronin! =D
