I'm back.

As some of you know, it was my birthday. Not much to say about it. I'm at that age where I stopped caring about birthdays since they just remind you that you're getting older.

Of course, it also happened to be the launch of Pokemon Sword/Shield and I have a lot to say about that. But I'll save it until after I beat the games, so no one has to worry about spoilers for now.

I've had quite a few ideas for new artwork, but not a lot of time or motivation to work on them. I've posted a few smaller ones on my Twitter, which you can follow here if you haven't already.

One thing I do want to mention is that I'm in a bit of a financial rough spot, so I'm opening very cheap commissions to commemorate the launch of Sword/Shield.

***Special Discount Commissions***

$3 - Any Pokemon except Legendaries/Gigantamax
$8 - Legendaries/Gigantamax
$10 - Any trainer (including OCs)

If you want a Pokemon + trainer combo, provide me details since the price will vary.
No points this time, I need actual cash. You can pay using Paypal.

This will be for a limited time only and I'll only have a few slots available.

Thank you for your support!

Hey everyone!

I've opened up a Twitter account, which you can find here:
I'll be posting WIPs and sketches, as well as finished art there so if you have a Twitter as well, please follow me. And if you can like and retweet my first tweet, that would be awesome!

If you're participating in the Pokemon Secret Santa, now is the time to submit your gifts! You have until the 28th to post or send them. If you've requested an extension, you have until January 10th. So far only fawncynic has an extension.
On the 29th, I'll contact anyone who hasn't submitted a gift to make sure everyone who participated receives something.

I do have a couple of gifts that were sent to me through Notes:

dekiruu, your Secret Santa was Absbor-K and this is their gift:

Other than that, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years. Hope you enjoy the holidays! :xmas:

By now, all Pokemon Secret Santa assignments have been sent out. Please let me know if you haven't gotten a note about who you're drawing for. 
For all participants, remember to follow the rules in the original journal.

This year has certainly flown by! Can you believe the holiday season is almost here? 
I thought it would be nice to do a little something special and have a gift exchange for fans of Pokemon. If you've never participated in a Secret Santa before, it's basically an event where a bunch of people all sign up with a wishlist of what they would like as a gift. Those wishlists are randomly given out to other participants so that everyone will get a gift from someone and gives a gift to someone else. You won't know who you'll be getting a gift from until the time comes!
Pixel: Christmas Hat  This is a Pokemon Secret Santa, so anything involving Pokemon is allowe

But wait!
Since I was a couple days late sending notes out due to recovering from my trip, I will extend the deadlines by 2 days! The journal will be edited with these changes.

So have fun drawing and when you post the gifts, be sure to tag or note your recipient so they will see their gifts.

We're closing in on the last month of the year!
Tomorrow is the last day to enter my Request Raffle and Pokemon Secret Santa. So if you want to participate in these events, this is your final warning!

I'm away on a trip right now, so I haven't had the chance to reply to everyone. But rest assured, I've got everyone who entered so far and tomorrow I'll post the winners of the raffle.

Good luck and see you tomorrow!
