Oh man.

Guys I am alive. Lorekeep, last time we talked I told you that I had been having some medical problems that had cut down on my work time and put me behind the 8 ball on orders. I'm not trying to "...steal money". Everyone's orders are STILL ACTIVE and WILL BE COMPLETED.

Bula777, You're right. No matter what happens to me it isnt fair that other people suffer for it. I havent been upfront about most of the recent events in my life and kept people, friends and customers, in the dark and I shouldn't do that.

That said, things ARE getting done, despite my lack of updates here. Next should be Lightningfires comic.

I can only ask those who feel wronged for forgiveness and time to get everything back in order. Gonna set up a new email in a moment so anyone who needs to can contact me directly for an update, a question, or just to bitch at me if they feel the need.

-rat


Here's that email  ratsalive1gmail

An addendum:

After this backlog of pics is done I'm considering getting out of the commie business.  I never get any of my personal work done anymore. Ive got fucking STACKS of comics rotting away on 3 different comps.  

It's weird, I like having multiple things to do, and the ability to switch targets depending on mood.  Its the only time I really get any work done commies included.  But at the same time a lot of people dont have the patience for that, and it ends up just a circle of misery for all involved.  No point if no one is having fun anymore.

ALSO!!!
DO NOT NOTE ME HERE, I go weeks/months without checking DA as is evident by my lax posting of late.  Please, its just easier on all of us.

I wish you good luck in whatever you choose to do, Black-rat. Though, now that you mentioned your own creations, I have a question. Do you have a fictitious universe a la Manicart1's? If so, I think there would be several others besides me who would like to see it.

Glad to hear you're okay, at least. Get out from under the commission pile and get back to having fun with your life, be it with or without art. Life's too short, man. :)

I am glad to hear that you are feeling better =)
Though I am rather disappointed you may quit producing comics T.T
And we completely understand your lack of not being able to update, most of the people here go weeks without updating simply because another facet of their lives has come to encompass the time they would normally spend here on dA.

Yes and no. I have no idea where the finished copy went. BUT I stumbled upon the original sketch version. So I'll spruce it up and send it to you soon (real soon, not "me" soon)

Good god i'm tired...

It's good to hear you're ok and things are getting better. Been big fan of your art haha like most of the furrie and community and others. I hope someday to commish you. Anyways I hope life takes a turn and keeps getting better for you, it sure doesn't seem to for lots of people. I hope one person in this world can have an awesome streak of luck.

Patience brings great things... I personally survive on even the slightest WIP. (: I've waited six months with just a sketch with few details and was extremely pleased at the end result. I'm sure I'm not the only patient person around, and my patience would certainly extend to your works. Perhaps this will help for the future? There's always pay half to get started, the other half after completion and whatnot.

But enough of that. As far as your condition goes, I wish you well. I really enjoy your work and have had hopes of commissioning you, but to see your art at all will please me. Best of luck with whatever you decide to do~

When ever people go "missing" I just assume their life is keeping them away from here or where ever they've been last spotted.

Anyhow who doesn't take that into account is... well dumb.

The people that constantly bother artists for free art (beggers) or those who always want said artist to keep uploading drawings dont have the capacity to see that.
