The Only 2019 Update Journal

The Only 2019 Update Journal

... It's been a pretty quiet art/DA year if this is the only "real" update I've given. Time has flown. And I'm not the fastest adjuster to change. I guess the last real update was back almost a year ago. Since then, I briefly moved back to Canada from Denmark over the winter. I got offered and accepted a job (yay for paid work in your field you gradated from!), then moved to the Netherlands with no money (My parents loaned me money for my first month here until I got my first pay. So thankful). Dealt with all the paperwork that comes with moving to a different country (well, that's not true. I still need to switch my driver's license and do

Looking for a mare

Looking for a mare

Trying to give this awesome little foal design some parentage and discovered my herd is very scarce on tobiano...  so I'm looking for a mare to be her mommy. If you're willing to offer your mare, please also list your price. Be aware that I am very slow on the art front, but it will get done eventually, and I will complete any art payments before giving this girl a ref. Requirements: Tobiano gene Must be able to have baby foals (A_) Warmblood or Thoroughbred. German Warmbloods preferred, but dutch/Belgian etc will be considered too. Foal (#1) Sire

2018 Stud Bookings - Breedings Open

Alright, I've gone through and selected some of my more active/loved/shown horses to offer them up to public breeding. :D Also trying to save points for a future show as prizes, so you have the option of payment methods. I've also left off some horses that desperately need new references, haven't yet gotten references, are still babies, or have show careers ahead of any breeding nonsense. That being said, if there was a horse you were waiting for that isn't on this list, please mention them to me. I may have missed them, or I may make an exception. All stallion prices are 1 breeding picture OR 150 :points: All mare prices are 1 breeding pi

Character Feature

Character Feature

Rules: 1. For the first 10 people who comment, I will feature one of their characters I like the most and put it in this journal. (I will go to your gallery and pick one character and one picture I like, you don't need to tell me which one.) 2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal (unless you've already done it), and put me in the first feature slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! 1.

And he rides pretty awesome ho

The New 2018 Update Journal

November 9, 2018 Wow. I completely forgot to actually update this. A lot has happened, which you may or may not have gotten snippets of from watch updates and random picture uploads. I have been subletting an apartment since August and we managed to arrange it so that I have it until the expiry of my student visa next month! That has been a load of stress off my mind and I have taken a lot of time to just enjoy myself and relax after all the stress the past year. I've got to start thinking about moving again soon, but we'll work on that around the later end of November. ;) All that other stuff I was worried about came around and was dealt

I Don't Even Know Anymore

I Don't Even Know Anymore

Hey guys, I know I've been pretty sporatic on here as of late, and even worse at replying to/giving comments to all the amazing stuff that enters my inbox. Truth is, I think I've been trying too hard, for a long time, to keep things the same, and convince others to stay the same too. But that's not how it works and lately I've realised that I don't depend on having that on here anymore. Which is a good thing. dA is no longer my place of safety and familiarity. I'mma say it again, because its amazing. DA IS NO LONGER MY PLACE OF SAFETY. I joined HARPG in the midst of a depressive state 6-7 years ago. I had more friends in HARPG than in real

I disappeared for awhile, I'm sorry. :/ I am not too active artistically right now, but I am going to try to reply to things in my inbox and be a little more active. On a good note, I got a roommate who has cheered me up immensely. :)
Style preference?  V1 or V2? 
Does life ever slow down enough to regain your motivation?
Sorry I keep popping up and then disappearing? :shrug: but I have art on the way, and much more free time coming up... maybe I'll finally clear out my inbox.  
I finally found a place to live! That means in a month or so, I will have more time and actual space to do art, and much less stress, which means I may actually become active again...

Been pretty AWOL over the holidays and enjoying a Canadian Christmas with friends and family. Now it looks like I'll be back in Europe, if but for a brief time.  I got a callback on that job in Europe... heading to go do a second interview in person....
Made it back to Canada for Christmas after 2 years away. Let's see how bad the culture shock will be. :giggle:
I have my first interview tomorrow! Wish me luck and prayers appreciated... I really like the sound of this job, I think it's perfect for me. We will see how it goes, or if it's just good practice for better jobs later on.
