Commission Chart 2.0
Current unpaid/paid commissions, now expanded to eight slots instead of five! First come first serve as per usual though:
Edit - 11/03/2018 I should point out though that the new 9th slot is specifically for those who either have multiple separate commission requests, and/or ones that have proposed due dates to be completed by. For time management's sake (as well as my sanity) however, that section will always be left as a single slot.
Watching: myself draw multiple stuff at the same time
Playing: with my imagination
MAJOR UPDATE - 03/29/2018:
With Season 2 of 's youtube series now underway, I figure its only appropriate to bring up another update to this journal, to show off not only Pepper & Pickles in action, but also my latest in After Effects video editing with more intro animations. Indeed, just like the main series intro, both the Chara-Cafe & Top Ten Tub intros were commissioned by the Doctor himself for your's truly to storyboard & arrange into what you now see below. Perhaps one of these days I'll be able to show what the storyboard sketches looked like if I find a good way to do so. Hope you all enjoy the now-finalized versions regardless, they were certainly a hoot & a half to put together, both for enjoyable & difficult reasons.
Especially since I'm still in school with condensed courses, so yeah - another reason to add on why I've been so dead this past month. XP
MAJOR UPDATE - 01/27/2018:
AND THE OCTO-CHEF SPEAKS!!
Yes folks the month hasn't even ended yet, and already another update has been made, but this time more officially as a video on the Dr Crafty Youtube channel -
Not only does it explain what the now-expanded team has in store for Season 2 thanks to Patreon goals being met, but Pepper & Pickles (as well as 's character Messibelle) have now been introduced in the show's pseudo-animated form with their voices in tow, along with the logos & background art dedicated to their spin-off episodes (which you can still find at the bottom of this journal).
The Crafty crew plans to start the second season mid-March, so theres still some time until viewers get to see more, but we're certainly thrilled to show what we have planned for the future, believe me. Personally it feels kinda surreal that this is becoming a thing. XD
Until the next potential update, stay tuned everybody!
MAJOR UPDATE - 01/16/2018:
Officially revealed the names & themes of two new spin-off shows for his channel that are currently in development, and artwork I was commissioned to create about them can be seen close to the bottom of this post. Also, guess who's been confirmed to be part of the Crafty cast -
Thats right folks, my silky squishy & shy Octo-chef and her sea cucumber companion will be appearing alongside the doctor himself as a co-host in Dr Crafty's "Chara-Cafe" series of episodes, voice acted & all!
While she may appear slightly different in Crafty's universe (as seen above), Pepper & Pickles will still be the adorable duo that will greatly assist in creating culinary oddities with Crafty. Wether said oddities will be positive or negative is anyone's guess, though being a mutant herself, Pepper would probably know just as much as Nurse Worse.
Stay tuned until then everyone, I know I'm excited!
Well, somewhat animated, but still - my first commission-paid animation project, done through my first true run in Adobe After Effects!
In the fall of 2016, my good pen-pal & fellow artist commissioned me to put together an intro for his new youtube show called "Dr. Crafty", an episodic series of draw-streams that provides not only doses of comedic entertainment for your viewing pleasure, but also some insightful tips for other like-minded artists that use Photoshop. Although the show mostly revolves around character design (or in the show's case, monster design), its still worth the watch even if the cell-shaded inspired style isn't one you personally work with. Theres something to gain from this new web series, and I encourage you all to see it for yourselves.
Hope you all enjoy viewing this 60fps short of craziness, just as much as I had storyboarding it!
But wait, theres MORE!
Not only did I animate the intro for the show, but I also provided the design for the series' logo/title, as well as the background that appears throughout the episodes, which can be found here -
Really excited to finally have permission to unveil what is my most expensive commissions so far, but definitely worth it I think. Give the series a look, and consider buying a commission from me as well if you want to have something like this done for you & your projects!
Apologies for the late response folks, but man - to all those who took the time to not only wish me the happiest of Birthdays, but also to the handful that made gift art for me this year, Many thanks to you all! The fact that people still come to see my drawings, concepts, and characters, despite me being admittedly sporadic with uploads and updates, gives me the drive I always need to continue making content. ^_^
Although speaking of content, something I've got going on behind the scenes that I can present to show my gratitude is this -
Over on my Twitter page, these images took off like crazy, especially for a following of my size (which is still pretty small). Not incredibly surprised however, considering I'm not the only one who is hoping for Banjo & Kazooie to appear in Smash Bros. someday, and the fact that I may have fooled a few viewers with how official I tried to make this Smash Ultimate fighter card look.
As for the sketches, what I also have here is the start of a potential moveset what-if piece for B-K. After seeing a few examples from other artists here & there for a while, I decided to throw my own concept for them into the discussion pool, and begin my own version of how Banjo & Kazooie could play in Smash. Due to it being way more involved than other movesets I've come across however, don't expect this compilation anytime soon.
May-haps before Smash Ultimate is released, but at the time of this journal I'm kind of unsure. Regardless, Thanks again for the birthday wishes everyone, and expect more artsy stuff from me in the future!
So apparently, talks of a 5th generation for MLP have been going about due to a batch of concept art being leaked. Perhaps its time for another one of my fan-made character-based "what-ifs" - To any fans out there, would you be interested in me finalizing these redesigns of the Mane 6 (and Spike)?
Just your average video game-playing digital artist getting by life, one piece at a time, no anime pun intended.
I was once one of the conceptual artists for the canceled kart racing fan game; "PonyKart", but now I'm currently one of the main conceptual artists for the indie platforming game; "Fiona Frightening and the Wicked Wardrobe".
While most of my time here on DA involves fan-art. I have started doing paid commissions this year (2016), so if you'd like to buy some art from this dingus of an artist, look up my commission chart for all the details, rules, and important whatnots.
