About this Piece

Ah snap, looks like I'll need the weekend to really finish off the illustration for the Dust Bunny, probably will skip Friday's comic for this week as well. Thanks for the well wishes guys, I'm okay, I just had a really difficult spell with a lot of overlapping issues....had to put down my senior cat of 17 years, my bathroom and basement flooded and now I have a pretty serious case where my work was stolen. Kind of dragged on my creativity, but I'll be fine in a few.

Quick FAQ

Can I use this painting/ idea for a project? (personal, commercial, fakemons, adoptables...)

As much as I hate being a stickler, I have to say a hard no. I've dealt with so much IP-theft over the years, many of which was commercial, that I have to be extraordinarily careful. The looser I am about my work, the more likely it is to be abused, even if you have good intent :( I make very little exceptions for this rule, but you can contact me at for more information.

*And it isn't a problem if you're using it for a Discord icon or a wallpaper on your computer, go ahead!

Can I make a 3D model of this artwork?

Okay, so here is where I make an exception. This is permissible if the work is ONLY for portfolio use and has proper credit --preferably somewhere on the still image itself, but I'm fine with it being somewhere in the description. You cannot sell the model, use it in a project outside of portfolio use, enter it into a competition for money or post it without credit.

Can I get a tattoo of this artwork?

I'm generally fine with this; tattoos are personal and I'm flattered that some people like my work enough to get it inked on themselves. I only have the following restrictions: that the tattoo parlor does not use the design to advertise their shop in any way and that the tattoo design isn't heavily modified or edited to be vulgar.

What tools are you using?

Photoshop CC and and a Cintiq 22HD

I've been off the site for a while and I came back to this in my notifications! I love your work! This piece is so amazing because I love turtles and macarons! It's now my desktop background. :)

Also as someone who has been through a basement flood in the past, and a recent leak in a bathroom I know how much that sucks to deal with. I hope everything was fixed for you. And I hope your getting your theft issue resolved too.

My condolences on Ginger's loss. :(

Absolutely adorable.

I'm sorry you had to experience so many stressful situations in such a short amount of time and that your hard work was stolen. Take as much time as you need, hon. We can wait.

NorthStar9974's avatar

am I the only one who sees the pan flag?

FrozenDragonHeart's avatar

I see it too.

I'm not sure if it is or not. The pan flag is a popular color combination itself.

So happy. The turtles I mean. Not about your cat. The picture is happy. Don't overwork yourself. Crappy to hear about our work being stolen. That sucks. And the flood. Your drawings make so many other peoples day better so I hope you get something that makes you feel better since you have that much crap pouring your way now.

That awkward moment when the one you want is at the bottom...

The turtles are so cute, but unfortunately, I don't like macarons. :(

I'm sorry that life has gotten hard for you. People who steal art are annoying.
