I actually don't have enough artwork to last a whole month, sorry about that . But the grand opening will still happen. Be patient and stay tuned!
Here's a little sneak peek for you!
June 2018Alright! For most people, May is a very busy month. This was especially true for me. When the busy-ness hit, I usually stop drawing altogether, but this May, I predicted how busy I was going to be. That's why dragon month sort of swallowed up May as well. I extended my drawing and posting routine to last me about 2 months. But, hey! May is over! And now it's summertime! Let's see what I can do for June!
Ambitions for June:
-Do some full and real concept arts
-Re-work some of my Grimoire and Gauntlet designs.
-make some new Grimoire and Gauntlet designs.
-Completely redo everything about Orimon.
-maybe a few, fun, extra bits
-Do some world building for Grimoire and Gauntlet
I know for a fact that not all of these are going to get done, but I can at least work on a few of them.
Dragon MonthNow that I'm back, and my birthday is coming up soon, I wanted to do something special.
I'm announcing April to be Dragon Month here on my DeviantArt. I'll be posting a whole ton of dragon drawings. I'm mostly doing this because I really love dragons and I love coming up different designs for dragons, yet I noticed that I never really posted any dragons here. I'm not promising any upload schedule 'cause you know how well that turns out, but I will promise that I will be very active this month and will post quite a bit of art.
~Stay tuned for some awesome dragon art! ^^
Quick QuestionI recently found a new way to create outlines around my drawing
The new way is much more smooth, but kinda grew accustomed to the sharp corners of my old outlines. Which should I choose?
Yesterday was the Happiest Day in my Life.I'm obviously exaggerating here, but I went super giddy twice yesterday.
I was already having a good time because I went to an amusement park with my family, but something amazing happened.
My good friend :iconerikservin: surprised me with a wonderful gift.
He made a 3D model of Pyrelien and Animated it. Go check it out it was amazing.
But soon after that, I received another message and I won silver in :iconfakemon-united: 's monthly contest.
Yesterday was just one good thing after another.
A Little More About Me, I Guess...I was tagged to do this by :iconErikServin:

I'm Back, plus announcementsSorry for being dead for so long.
I know you're tired of me saying that, but now I'm back for good.
I'll be able to post art at least once every two days with all the art I made over my break.
Also, I'm expanding a little bit.
I have a Twitter now. It's a little barren right now, but I'll make announcements and tease upcoming art.
I also created a Discord server. There you can hang out with me, make suggestions, and I even made a place where we can critique one another's art in hopes of improvement. Come on in there's plenty of space! ^^

Happy Belated Valentine's DaySorry for being such a ghost recently. I bet you guys are just sorta used to it now.
I've just been really busy. But, I'm here now! And only 3 days late to Valentine's day.
I might be making a few changes around here and tell me if you approve:
More character refs for Grimoire and Gauntlet. (Which should be in development in spring. WooHoo!)
I'm going to start a redesigning Pokemon like I do in collab just without the collab part.
A special surprise!
Just Updated Brefall for the last time! ^^ >>>>>
How do you like the new design? Hope you enjoy!
An Announcement for NovemberMe and a couple of my friends are going to start working on a special project during November.
During this time I won't be able to post very much art.
I'll still be active within this community and interact with you guys, but don't expect art from me in a while.
As for this "special project" I'll reveal it to you guys late November and hopefully many more monthly updates will follow!
A Splash of Colour Contest
Without colour, the world around us would be a dull place. Colour is everywhere, and plays an important role our lives. We pick flowers because we like their colours, we paint our houses in colours we like. With the Word Cup going on, soccer fans from all over the world dress in their national colours. Colour can raise you up, can soothe and relax you or maybe just make you see a normal object in a different way.
As artists, we know that choosing the right colour can make or break art. Colour also sets the tone and atmosphere, sometimes conveying a strong message to the viewer.
However, if all colour is left out, that too sends a strong message. We have all seen black and white art that wouldve been a great deal less impressive if it were displayed in bright colours. In art, sometimes the absence of colour can strike harder than even the origanal original colours. Focus is brought

BUY A BOOK OF YOUR FAVOURITES!how cool would it be if you could buy a book of all your favourites from DA?!
or say you could buy a 50 page book, or 100 page book, and just pick your favourite favourites to be in it?
and if one of your images was included in another deviant's book, then you'd receive a little bit if money; so if you were in lots of deviant's books, you'd get some good money, which would be sweet!
and DA would make nice profits on it and maybe make the site ever hotter than it already is!
(but you could also have the option not to be included in people's books!)
if you like the idea, and think you'd buy a book of your favourites, fav this article!
