After some people asking for me to allow dA points as payment I debated it for a while.  Personally I hate dA's system for this, the fact that they force you to use their dumb onsite currency, that they take 20% of the profits and that it can take 2-4 weeks for me to see that money, unless they decide to deny the transaction for no fucking reason which has happened to a few of my friends lol.  It's completely BS and ridiculous. 

However, I also understand some people are unable to use paypal or credit cards online (due to age limitations mostly), but earn dA points.  By disallowing point purchases I was effectively also cutting these people off.  So I debated the matter, and decided to offer my newer downloads here as well for points, but at an increased price over purchases direct from my website. 

Basically managing my shop on my site is less frustrating to get my payment from and I am paid with in 2 days, and I am only charged 2% on each sale.  And I'd really like to direct more of my sales traffic to my website than dA.  dA is kinda dead for me, you might have noticed I've said in a few places that I'm letting my sub expire.  50/year is frankly more than owning my own website costs me, for a subscription on a site that doesn't listen to user feed back and I don't even have features that many other art sites offer for free (fucking pay for minimal page customization?? wow) 

So if you've been wanting my stuff for points because you can't use RL currencies, this is for you.  If you can do either, I recommend my shop over points, because you will be saving money due to the lower purchase price.  I'll also set up new DLs in this manner, though I may delay point purchases as an option for the first 1-2 months.

Here are my newer works which are now open for point purchases:

SilverWind
First off, Silverwind is doing MUCH better!  I posted this news up on tumblr about a week ago, and meant to update here, but I forgot.  Turns out she's had a very low level allergy to gluten for a long time, but none of the vets ever caught this (it looked like a skin irritation).  Back in Jan it exploded into a complete intolerance and volatile reaction to it.  Most of her fur came out due to hives, and her subsequent excessively grooming/itching of them as well as intestinal issues.  It was so bad we had serious discussions on if she should be put to sleep, and when should we make that kind of call.  She was so miserable with it we decided that if there was no improvement in a month we would have to, she was really that bad off.  

However she started showing a lot of improvement when she was on a pumpkin & can food diet, along with medications.  In fact it seemed like any medication was treating the issue, so I decided to look at her food instead.  After speaking with the vet we decided to food trial her with a gluten free diet for a month, and she completely recovered.  She's off all medications, and clearly feeling wonderful.  Her fur is thick & lovely, and she is confident & happy enough to socialize with the other cats (and Copper, she fucking loves Copper), which is something she hasn't done for the last year, and just kinda confined herself to the bathroom.

I'm just super happy her long term issues was finally diagnosed, and is easy to treat and will no longer effect her at all.  She gets to be a completely normal & healthy cat.  I typed up a much more in depth thing on this over on tumblr, you can read it here

Also she's my least photogenic cat, but I got some nice ones for you guys of how pretty she looks now!


Kohana
Secondly I got a new dog!  She's a a cute little girl we rescued from the shelter the other day.  She’s an adorable little 2 year old terrier mix and such a spazz outside.  I don’t know what her previous life was like, but she’s well behaved and already picking up on the little bits of training I’ve started with her.  I'm mostly working on crate training, off leash & recall.  I hit the holy trinity of easy training with her, she's highly food, toy & pet reward oriented.  She also is picking up super fast on the commands.  She also had a very good meet & greet with our four existing dogs, and they all are getting along very well, especially for how new she is.  Sonka is still kinda unsure about her, and there's a little bit of lap guarding happening with Kohana & Tokla, but we are aware of the issue and training against it before it is an actual problem (mostly involving removing dog from lap when this happens and redirecting the attention at a toy).  

The shelter I pulled her from puts dogs down after 2 weeks, and frequently they have to after 1 due to space issues.  They are a gov run one, and do not have an ISO room, and gov just drags it's ass on shit like this.  They've applied to have more space added to the building, they have the land space tons of it, but the gov is just "you don't need it" so they have to space the dogs every other kennel and end up having very little room for them.  I'd been talking about getting another dog for about a year, I wanted one well before any of mine passed (they are old babies ;A; ) and knew I did want to pull a dog from this place if the opportunity arose, and welp, here she is.  She came completely vetted (shots, spay & microchip) and I took her directly to my vet to have a general check & HW test.  Aside from a little dry skin she's perfectly healthy (she got an oatmeal bath today, she was surprisingly good for her bath).

I can say for sure she’s clearly super happy with her new  home, if these photos don’t show that enough!  I have more on my tumblr post of her as well.

I had the 2 girls out with her, but they didn't want to cooperate for a group shot, they just gave me butts.
So just photos of Kohana for now!

I has Job
Ok, some of you might already know, but I have a job now 8D  One aside from my art.  As much as I really loved doing just art for income, it's a very feast or famine field.  This means I will have less time to do art, but I'll also have more disposable income to save back for a new lens & A PRINTING PRESS!  Yes, literally my plan right now is to save back most of my income and put it towards a lovely new printing press so I can get back into making prints!  

These will most likely be all linocuts, though I may be brave and venture back into collagraphs again ;-; We shall see!  I'm debating on my inks, I have some water based inks I picked up on mega clearance (80% off! yay!) before I left college, but I never learned to work with water-inks, and all my training & experience lay in oil-inks.  ;-; decisions decisions! But I'm excited for my job because of this specifically! 

Also I work at a bakery.  It's lovely, it's a tiny family owned one and the owners are SUPER nice!  I've been there 2 weeks, and it's lovely.  Also I work the front (no baking/cooking for me!) but at night I get to clear out the display case of all the unsold goodies and we split them among the staff, so gooooood.  I bring home things all the time omg.  Also we're a confections bakery (so we do make bread but mostly cakes, pies, muffins, CINNIMON ROLLSSS).  GOOD THING I CAN'T REALLY GAIN WEIGHT OR I'D BE LIKE 500 POUNDS AT THE END OF THE YEAR. XDDD

Also this means my official art days are now Sat-Mon, meaning these are the days I really focus on commissions.  I do try to work at them when I get off, but that's not a guarantee, just depends on how tired I am XD


Pets

Also please send good vibes towards Silver Wind.  Her skin disorder is under control (it's a genetic one, long term sadly) but now she has severe diarrhea, and has lost half her weight due to it (she was OVER weight, that's how bad it's effecting her :c ).  She's going into the vet today, but because of her skin issue she's often hard to treat.  She won't even respond to a bland home diet of chicken & rice.  And now I'm worried she'll have her skin disorder flare up again from stress of being sick ;-;

I has one

I have a Toyhouse now, and yes it's a upgraded one so I have some invites to hand out!  Please only post for an invite if you are planning to be active on there!  It'd be really lame to take that chance from someone else if you are not planning to be an active member of the site lol.  I have one month sub and get +2 a week, so I guess I'll have 7 more to give out (I gave one out already XD)
These are free, I don't feel like charging for them, but be aware I'm not planning to re-new my sub over there after it runs out, so once the 7 are gone, I'm done~

Portfolio Gallery
In an effort to begin migrating my online presence focus towards my portfolio you'll begin noticing a delay on uploads of finished works here, tumblr, and any other art galleries you may follow me on, of a week or more.  My website will always receive uploads upon completion with no delays!  In an effort to make EvlonArts my main online gallery I have also been doing quite a bit of work overhauling coding and over all appearance to make it more user friendly for visitors!
Some recent updates:
  • Latest uploads on home page, to ease checking for new content
  • New viewing theme- Neutral which features cool greys & blues without the background for improved visibility 
  • Galleries are migrating to have tabbing (which acts like folders do here on dA c: )
  • Our very own disqus to leave comments, questions, feed back or whatever you'd like to let me know about the site or art!
  • Brand new server which has sped up over all site speed c:
More things are planned and in the works!  Come be a part of a little art place I call home with me c:
