Progress so FarFirst off, thank you guys so much, you are awesome as always!
I'm still getting supportive, encouraging messages from the last update about life outside of FE. Thanks for sharing your struggle and success stories, how much FE means to you, and your kind words. Been spending the past month seriously looking into what it would take to for art to be a full-time job in my life. Again, I'm hesitant to share about my personal life, (especially finances,) but I'm not the only one who wants to make a living doing what they love - and I hope sharing my experience will help others working towards the same goal.
The first thing Husband and I did, as basic as it sounds, is review our monthly budget. Regardless of where the money came from, we needed to know the bare minimum I had to bring in so we could cover our monthly bills. The total came to be three times what my art income currently is.
Next step was to figure out how much time I had to increase the art income to meet our budget. (In this
The Good, The Bad, and the New YearBeen about six months since the Fan Comic Event, I should probably update this journal.
It's a long post, but I've had a lot to think about lately. I'll summarize in the comments at the bottom if you'd prefer not to navigate it all.
2015 was amazing. Just briefly looking over some of the highlights, so many things I wanted to do for so long happened within the last twelve months:
Got to see my family again after two years of moving around the country. Published a collection of FE Comics Published an FE Graphic NovelAttended a Furry convention as a Dealer for the first timeGot FE books to be carried by a few retailers, including Rabbit ValleySet up a crowdfunding campaign to fund future FE projects and help manage bills
None of those things listed would've happened if it wasn't for all your support. (Except seeing my family again. Maybe.) Whether you pledged on Patreon, bought a book, visited me at events, shared comic updates and announcements with your friends, or just kept com
FE Fan Comic Event - Info and RulesThe FE Fan Comic Event is back!
The first couple weeks in September I'll be traveling, so once again I'm asking FE fans to show off their comic-making skills! For those who remember the rules from the previous event, they're mostly the same (with some minor tweaks to the dates), and for new readers who are interested in participating I've copied the details below.
Each comic submitted will be featured as the latest page on the website between August 31st through September 14th for an equal amount of time. How long that time is depends on how many submissions are received. All comics will be removed from the archives when FE updates resume, but will be re-uploaded as a FREE digital collection on the website's Wall of Awesome page.
HOW TO ENTER:
Create a comic featuring any members of the Furry Experience cast. This comic can be funny, sad, thoughtful, non-sequitur, whatever your mind can come up with! (Within the formatting rules below) Any material can be used, inc
Aw, You Guys...Thanks for everyone's kind words, llamas and birthday wishes! Looks like I'm lucky enough to get another year of drawing and sharing comics with you awesome folks, I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I'm planning to
FE on Patreon?I've noticed several people setting up automatic donation payments on Paypal to obtain the monthly wallpapers -and you guys are awesome for that! It's got me thinking about setting up a Patreon account, to help fund more FE ideas I've been wanting to try out. If you're not sure what Patreon is, here's a brief video explaining it:
Some of the Patreon rewards I've been considering includes creating exclusive avatars/icons, doing a monthly comic interview of FE characters, where donators can submit questions and even appear in the comic to ask their questions 'in person,' reserving a free copy of all future printed works, and creating a 'Wall of Awesome' section of the FE website where donators can be forever honored in name or sketched portrait.
What are your thoughts on Patreon? Is there a reward you'd be interested in seeing offered? Do you have experience donating to other Patreon campaigns?
Happy New June, Everyone!Traditionally, New Year's is when you're supposed to think about how far you've come and what you want to accomplish in the coming year. But for me, this thought process happens in June. This is because my birthday occurs in June, and something about getting a year older gets me antsy to work on projects that sitting on the backburner. Between these feelings and wanting to dive back into making art after moving, this June is officially the Month of Doing Stuff I've Wanted to Do For Awhile Now!
As that title suggests, this month I'm finishing projects that have been on the backburner for too long. Keep your eyes open for details of the promised Badge Event, and I will finally be making the first set of Boop Buttons! ( Don't know what buttons I'm talking about? The original idea sketches can be found here: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11844399/ )
Concerning comics, my goal is jumpstart progress on the side story Ice Queen, by having all 50+ pages pencilled by the end of
Why the Strange Schedule?You may have noticed hiccups in the FE comic's updating schedule lately. I've been curious about this, as well. So I donned my cape, grabbed a trusty apple sidekick, and went searching for clues. Our search over the past couple months uncovered boxes being assembled, wall hangings being taken down, and a list of potential apartments and homes. Turns out I'm moving again.
As the end of our lease gets closer and more of a reality, comic updates may get a little strange-but I still want to try maining regular updates. Some projects are currently on hold, (Remember the badge event?) but others I'm trying to keep up progress on-such as the Ice Queen comic. (Updates can be read on the forum: http://furryexperience.forumotion.com/t373-ice-queen-blog )
Hopefully things won't go too awry during this move, but thanks in advance for your patience if they do.

A quick update on my absenceHello DAers!
My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away.
Also, I should have lots of fun skeletals to show off in the coming months (and years) thanks in part to the work I put in over the last 9 months. I look forward to chatting with you all again in a few weeks!

Cinematic Composition and FramingI have recently started to dive into cinematic composition & framing to try to add more depth to my images.
I thought it would be kinda cool to explain my thought process with my recent image. "Lily's Favorite Bar"
Step 1) Get the basic idea figured out.
My friend, the commissioner and I agreed on the concept of Ash being the bartender serving an eager Lily and disgusted Willow.
Step 2) Find out who the main focus should be in the shot.
I wanted Ash to be showing off her villainous personality and be in control of the situation but not the main focus. So Ash was used as a framing device for the real stars of the image.
Step 3) Add Subtle clues to help give the audience a better understanding of the characters and where to look.
Making Ash larger helped portray her control over the situation. But not the main focus as she is looking off to the side to help guide your attention to what she is i
