Hey everybody, I'm still alive. Did you have a decent holiday time? I wish everyone a Happy New Year 2018!

My inactivity here on Deviantart has multiple reasons, non of which are too concerning. Yet I am healthy, but some obstacles are in my way apart from other circumstances.

Obstacles - Almost overworked again and I had a few issues regarding concerns about the health of a family member which made it somewhat difficult to focus. But it turned all out to be fine. Still, I almost began to work too much and to not allow myself to find some rest. As I didn't want and don't want to make that mistake again, I am taking things as easy as possible.

Other reasons - Work. Doing work for clients takes time and energy, hence why I can't take too much of the same energy for being active a lot online. One can find me on Facebook though and my portfolio on Artstation gets updates soon.

Meanwhile, plenty of new drawings and ideas have been crafted and are in progress. I am yet not sure whether I should upload them to Deviantart though. My story creation of my personal project named Forlorn Knights - Darksome Arising is ongoing and is getting some major revision. More characters, more fun and smaller sideplots, etc. have been included and the writing needs to be carefully crafted for consistency.

The end result, as initially planned, will be graphic novels. And for that I am writing the scripts for each chapter. My original plans have been to have that story done mid 2016, but well, time didn't allow it to happen. I'm therefore absolutely unsure as to how long it will need. But I can try to upload little teasers and insights into characters, etc. I'll see what I can do, if it even sparks interest which I yet cannot know. :)

Apart from all that - I hope everyone is doing well!

See ya.

Brollonks has started a donation pool!

If you like my brushes, you can support ANY amount of points to make sure I'll find enough time to upload many brushes for free. Keep in mind that 80 points are 1$, so the number might look incredibly high.

In any case:

The points goal doesn't have to be reached, there will be more brushes showing up no matter how much support I get.

-It only depends on the amount of donations how fast they will show up.

Upcoming Brushes:

- Graphitechalk (with blendingbrushes via smudgetool included) - free (in progress)

I appreciate your support and many thanks to all who supported me by purchasing the "Dave's Camelhair Brush Set Eliteversion 2012" Thanks! I am only able to find much more time for new brush-creations because of YOUR help.
