Did a co-op commentary with :iconflairnightz: on a guy named Foster who was making claims against a storytime animator named Katzun (:iconkatzun:)
This is only part one.
Foster made two videos and despite them both now having been deleted, Kamen and I already scripted and recorded for part two. That one's going to go on my channel and will hopefully be released before the end of next week. 

For Halloween this year, IcyhazardX recruited me to review one movie in an 8 movie horror collection~
Join, Icyhazard, 88th-Floor, Feghost and myself as we talk about the first four movies in this collection~
Considering we all had.... unique issues with our movies, you're in for some fun X3


The next installment in the false allegations that was known as the Spoctor drama.
Today's video subjects are:
Xzone Wolf
Zulu Zu
Art Flor U 05
Daze Megido
Digital Leo

New Ponder Sprocket commentary out today!!

This time the video is on :iconataricynical:, :iconverymetai: Stories, QuestionedTurkey and :icondevilguts:

Big thanks to :iconobscuredflower: :iconoblivionsgate: and :iconchaos55t: for getting back to me so quickly about the sprites and artwork. 

Many big thanks to the amazing :iconcattymaddie: for doing the thumbnail~!

Brand new "Adventures in Critiquing" video out today!
Give some love to today's guest narrator, :iconthenamesjunkie: 

Message from a dumb butt on e-mail put me in a bleh mood so I'm countering that by releasing a new video a day earlier than intended.
In this video, I talk about what a "character" is and what it means to create and use one based on my own experiences.
Hope you enjoy~

A video that has been a year in the making, and it's finally complete!
While the video we had originally been covering has long since been removed, we'd been working on this commentary since it first came out. There were a lot of instances where the project was scrapped and then revived, and a bunch of animations that I'd been working on for it that were dropped because all the flipping between "we're doing it" and "we're not doing it" didn't leave me with enough of a consistent timeframe to actually get them done XD
Ah well.
Join :iconblazethemoviecat: :iconshadowgirl57: :iconsd-the-doodler: and myself as we talk about artistic nudity, nudity in general and lots of other sexy things. 

The commentary itself is on :iconliteralnovice: and :iconfriedsoup: and covers a :iconben-the-looney: rant video discussing attitudes towards nudity and nude or nsfw art. 


New commentary video for my cuties on this fine Christmas day~
A commentary on :iconhuchzermeierm:
Aaaaannnd that's it for the year, folks!
Here's the remaining commission list as it currently stands:

:iconlugia61617: :iconxearias: :icondivinedoe: :iconjudedeluca:

+ animated commission for The Nation of Johnny K
+ illustration project for e-mail commissioner

I won't be accepting commissions again until my book is finished and ready to print.

Last Chance For Commissions This Year!

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 19, 2017, 7:18 AM

    Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that as of October 28th I will no longer be accepting new commissions. Of course I'll be finishing up whatever commissions I have, but beyond that date you will not be able to order any further commissions from me. 
    I should preface this with noting that I have a couple medical problems that I'm not going to get into that make it difficult to stay awake sometimes. Over the next couple of months I need to focus predominately on finishing up my first book so that I can publish it, and I would be lying if I said that the limited amount of time I have available to work hasn't been entirely filled with commissions for a while. With Fall upon us and Winter soon approaching, that time is going to get a little more difficult to handle, so I need to make some changes.
    For the next few months I'm going to entirely subsist myself on the money I receive from additional projects (mostly my youtube account). There will be no requests, no commissions, no trades, ultimately no sort of additional work of any kind. This also means that after the videos I have planned for October, there will be a month or two of lax on my youtube account as well. This is all so that I can entirely devote myself to finishing a 48 page, full colour first issue graphic novel. 
   I'm sure many of you are already aware of the project; Mecha and Stem

    I want to give some people the chance to get in their commissions should they really want one this year, which is why I'm giving a couple weeks notice. However, because I'm closing commissions with the intent on working on another large project, I cannot then be spending all of my time in November and December catching up on large commission projects ordered now. This means that there are going to be limitations on what people can get, what sort of commissions I will accept and the scope of the commission itself.

With that explanation out of the way, here's what you need to know:

1.) On October 28th I will officially be closing my commissions for the rest of the year. They will not open again until well into 2018 (probably around May or June). 

2.) I will not be accepting disconnected character commissions. Basically this means that if you want to buy a long commission sheet with a bunch of your original characters as references... you can't. You can buy pieces of characters interacting with one another, but I will no longer be offering a discount for additional characters if they are disconnected from one another in the piece.
For example:
ArticleFan282 and Ms Takamoto [Rion Rhino Mills] by Empty-Brooke                                       Deck the Crayfish [Commission] by Empty-Brooke
Disconnected (not accepting)                                        Connected (Perfectly fine)

3.) There's going to be a limit of 5 characters that you can have in one piece. 

4.) One person CAN get multiple commissions BUT it depends on the complexity. 

5.) If I don't think that I will be able to finish a commission in a relatively speedy amount of time, then I'll probably have to turn the commission down.

6.) Commissions ordered in October must be PAID FOR in October. I will not be accepting commissions on the promise that I will be paid in the coming months. I can't work extensively on a piece until I know that I'm being paid, meaning that waiting on the payment means I'm waiting on when I can work on the piece.

7.) If I accept your commission and you haven't paid by October 28th I will be canceling it. 

8.) I'm not doing promissory future commissions. Meaning you can't request that I do a commission in February for you instead of now. 

9.) No, I will not do a commission in exchange for an art piece, review, critique, video, dedication, shares, credit, commission of equal value, etc. Only money via Paypal or the equal price of DA points, paid for AS a commission. 

10.) and finally...
If you like my prices as they are now then you'll need to get your commission now because they'll be going up when I start offering commissions again. I've been underselling myself for a very long time and it's gotten to the point where my other forms of revenue are vastly outweighing my commissions, not only in how much I make from them but also how efficiently I can finish the projects and even sometimes how much enjoyment I get out of working on them. While currently still undetermined, my new prices will be based more on how long a piece takes to finish and will be based more off of minimum wage. So this is your last chance to get anything from me at these lower prices. 

That's it for now!
Anybody interested in ordering a commission can contact me via PMs. Please remember that I will need an e-mail account connected to Paypal that I can send the commission invoice to. 

Thanks for reading, and happy Spooky Month~!!

Last video on :iconicyhazardx: and :iconthecreepswork: 
My solo comm was the civil one.
This time :iconsd-the-doodler: and I got together to make the fun video. 

Please note: ICY'S A GOOD PERSON, recognizes her mistakes and is striving to better herself. However, Doodles and I had actually planned this video before I did my solo commentary, so we decided to go ahead with this one and make it a more obvious juxtaposition to the more light-hearted solo comm I did.
Do not go after Icy or view her as currently being the same. Everybody can change and I have mucho respect for Icy. This video is predominantly for FUN.

New commentary out and ready to be watched!
I'm back to talking about DeviantWeebs, this time featuring :iconicyhazardx: and :iconthecreepswork: 

If you want to catch up on all of the videos related to the "drama" (or at least those that are still uploaded for the viewing public) in order, then here you go:
First is Hiten's commentary on Icy.
Icy had a livestream response to Hiten's video but it's now deleted (after I commented on it alluding to the fact that I'd be doing a commentary on it).
Next Icy apologizes.
Then the Quad-op (started around the same time as Hiten's video) is finally finished.
Then Icy responds to "all the rants done on [her]."
And that's where I come in Heart 


So I just got a core membership from an anonymous deviant??
And attached with it was the phrase "Tell them to subscribe to my channel"??
I mean...
Firstly... You know that you're anonymous, right? I don't know who you are.
Secondly, and this might sound very uppity, but I'm having trouble wording it in any other way--please do not just randomly gift me things with a demand attached. It's forcing an obligation on me for something I didn't even ask for.
I can't do what this person is asking for and, frankly, even if I could I probably wouldn't. I don't appreciate people just giving me things out of the blue and then expecting things in return.
If I don't know you and your content isn't something that I would actively recommend, then no, I'm not going to recommend it.
Really, I don't appreciate guilt-tripping like this. It's seriously uncool. Anybody who knows about my life knows that I've dealt with manipulative people in the past who did this same sort of crap and I really don't respond well to it. 
Please don't do this, you guys.

Did a co-op commentary with Nihilistic Snake on his channel~

Should probably specify here;
I don't really have a problem with the MGTOW movement as a whole, nor really anyone who chooses not to engage in a relationship or reproduce. Guess it could also kinda be said for radical feminists who think that childbirth is sexist or some shit like that.
Yeah, sure, if I think that someone has beneficial genes that should be carried to the next generation, I'll consider it a loss, but beyond that what people choose to do with themselves doesn't really concern me. 
Personally I'm of the opinion that a close-knit, multi-generational, supportive and large family is a good thing, so while I never really thought about it much throughout my life, of course I wouldn't forgo the idea of a long term relationship with a spouse. 

Basically, what I'm saying is that I don't really care if someone chooses not to date and fuck or whatever.

However, I think random, generalized hatred against a large group of people is kind of stupid if it's not based on, like... moral ideology or something. (I mean, I don't like dog fuckers. But dog fuckers aren't born as dog fuckers. They choose to be dog fuckers. And therein they choose to have my foot up their ass.)
Any sort of sweeping hatred of a group--be it males, females, people of a specific race, sexuality, etc--is just dumb to me. So yeah. I might do commentaries based on arguments that center around that sort of thing. (Big shock there.)
So I don't really care that this guy's a MGTOW or that he chooses not to date women. It ain't a big deal. His arguments, however, are another story and I find them to be flawed and inconsistent. Hence the co-op.
(Can't talk on Snake's behalf though, only my own.)

It's two hours long.
Don't go in if you haven't the same levels of patience as myself XD

Ey, yo. So I finally got to do the other video of :iconsavdraws: that I'd been planning to work on for months. Everybody go thank Hiten Mitsuru for also wanting to do a commentary on the same video so I could be spurred into getting off my butt and doing something XD
This time we talk about the trend of making Fan Characters and pairing them up with canon characters.
Note for the video: I am of the opinion where I think that fan characters are generally dumb and I think shipping them with canon characters is a waste of time. However, I understand that it's a fantasy and that many people would think similarly of many of my own vices, so I'm not going to berate an artist for indulging in their fantasies.
Hiten, on the other hand, is totally for shipping fan characters with canon characters.

Probably no more commentaries on SavDraws. I like to stick to a "two per person" commentary limit, and while I don't normally count co-ops as a part of that, since these were videos I had planned to cover on my own, I'm going to move on. 
I had, like, two other videos I had originally wanted to cover but I don't really feel the need to address them any longer and I've got other stuff I'd like to work on. 

Got at least 2 more co-ops coming up very soon--one of them involving some animation by yours truly--so get hyped!

Was interviewed by :iconfornogr: for his podcast, King of Limbo. Honestly had lots of fun. I don't typically get to talk about comics all that much on my commentary channel XD
