In late 2018, I injured my back at work. The injury precipitated a nervous breakdown, as the pain from the injury wouldn’t go away, confirming my worst fears. I quit my job and moved in with my parents to try to recuperate physically and mentally. And I tried to continue making art. I produced The Adventures of Yossi and Tal. I took up a handful of commissions and drew a few personal pieces for fun. But since 2006, I’ve been pursuing the goal of supporting myself with my art, and for all the thousands upon thousands of hours I poured into my creative endeavors, I never made more than $2300 in one year. That’s not enough to live on. That’s not even anywhere near minimum wage. So I quit. And quitting feels great, at least in some ways. I’m no longer a slave to self-imposed deadlines and the burden of creating and promoting content. I don’t feel bound to social media as a marketing tool. At my current job, I’m on track to make more money this year than from any other full-time work

His latest project is redesigning characters (e.g. Asuna from Sword Art Online) in his style with an emphasis on practicality, which is a cool idea. 2: :iconbyombu: Ten hundred million

Sasha Braus Style Selector Artist's Notes Hairstyle References Survey Thanks to everyone who took the Sasha style survey! Let's get the Sasha style selector up in here for reference and take a look at the poll results: The first graph shows which styles respondents selected when they could choose as many styles as they wanted. The second graph shows the results when respondents had to pick a single favorite. As you can see, J was the runaway favorite no matter how you slice it, and B, G, and K also garnered consistently high popularity, whether as first choices or general likes. And if you look closer, the data reveals some interesting t

How are you doing

Thanks for the favs!

Thanks for the journal fave.:D

Sure thing, lots of cool ideas in there. I may have occasion to use the swarm-of-animate-bones thing with my own RPG crew within the next few sessions!

Heh. Glad these could inspire then.^^ And the thing is, these were mostly categories. There could be lots of specialized actual units within each category, eh? Heck, could make an entire necronomicon from this. XD And by your words, I'm assuming you mean D&D session. Well, with that in mind...

you have nice works ~
