my new account is in the coming weeks it will be the most active account and this one will no longer be active! although it will still be left up and I will probably still check the mail on it from time to time!
I have many reasons for this decision for those who are wondering. Fr33z3dry is an alias and account I made just about 7 years ago! It has enjoyed over 100k views on its main page and over a million of combined views from all it's submitted work. However it isn't the same as it used to be. I used to make comics in a different way and would update very frequently, so this account is very full and even kinda cluttered with art. Something you must understand is I am very annoyed when there is a lack of organization or if things aren't compact and clean! I have over 1000 watchers, but only a fraction of them really watch me. I am subscribed to many groups that I don't really watch nor contribute to. Admittingly, I have people I watch that I don't even pay attention to anymore or became inactive.
My approach on how I wish to create and share my art has changed. There was even a point when I thought, perhaps I don't want to draw anymore and it was time for me to take my leave, but I know I don't want that and I know YOU don't want that. So what is the next course of action to take if I am not going to leave? Simple! Just begin a new chapter!
Thanks for understanding, if you don't understand, no thanks I guess. I welcome you to join me what is to come with Neil and Ryan among other things...

I haven't heard back from them in over a week so I'm assuming they decided on someone else, but I thought you might like to know someone from a book publishing company found my dA account and considered me to do 30 illustrations for a children's book, how cool is that!?

I have made the decision to end the Neil And Ryan web comic series and have made a plan on the future of my characters. Neil And Ryan will end by splitting into two separate new series, which I will explain:
Neil And Ryan Minis or Neil And Ryan Lite(working title) This series will be a new comic series that has two or more panels featuring (not)everyone's favorite dA comic family as you were used to, however the comic will be re imagined in a new much more simplistic style. I have actually done this before very briefly as some might recall, It won't be in color.
(Also working title) Neil And Ryan Singles, Boy In Blue, RyGuy or Fruit Snack Just as Neil and Ryan always was, this comic will be in full detail, full color, shading and the works just as you are used too. However this series will only be one single panel per comic but also enlarged to a size more like 640p.
This plan I designed based on my recent lack of inspiration to wanting to make the comics even though I still like drawing the characters. So hopefully me and you will like what's in store for the future of NaR.

Wow I actually had no idea this existed, but I must admit I was kinda let down. I got so excited and thought the entire anime was rebooted to have a much more serious vibe and be more based on the video games but as it turns out it is only a four part special, still so far I enjoy it, half way done. What do you other pokemon fans think of it?
EDIT: wow I decided to watch this and just remembered today is the 25th birthday of gameboy!

Sorry for the break, I did say I wouldn't make journals about hiatuses anymore but I didn't say anything about not making return announcements! I actually have two separate comics in progress which is something that hasn't happened in a while X3 but you should start seeing strips again in no longer than April!

yeah I can't say I really cared for this at all, the only thing good was the writing and acting. It has the original actors and the writing actually has some potential, I actually did laugh out loud a few times I will admit. But these new powerpuff girls aren't even really that cute and I don't find them cute at all. The animation is jittery and unwatchable, why do the girls eyes move so much? WHY DON'T THE MOUTHS MOVE CORRECTLY!? This just seems like once again taking a hit show from the 80s/90s and rebooting it with fast production methods just so some networks can make some cash, pleh! A lot of people still question the entire MLP FIM/Brony thing well this is a fine example, because that show was rebooted and done right! At least that's how I feel about when so many cartoons these days are just mediocre and second rate in every way then gems like MLP and adventure time of course are going to be cherished more than some people think is probably deserved, sheesh!
But you know what? If people like it then they like it, I'm not gonna be one of those people that say "oh my childhood is ruined! The PPG is killed!" because CN isn't gonna see too it that every last piece of the 90s one is destroyed and hold me at gun point and force me to watch the new one. I just think the new one isn't good, at all, it's my thought on it. What do you guys think? I wasn't even aware they were rebooting it at all until my friend mentioned it, I'm surprised I didn't hear more about it on here.

so my mother was complaining to me that her PC is annoyingly slow again. Normally I just reinstall windows and this solves the problem temporarily. I must admit that my family are noobs when it comes to technology and they do keep clicking things they shouldn't and getting the computer loaded with spyware, but either way it is an outdated machine and I kinda decided that my mom really deserves a nice fast computer especially since she needs one for work. At the same time I thought of this I noticed a laptop on best buy that I really wanted XD so in short I will be selling this laptop to mom and I will be getting a brand new one! New toy to make comics with!

I should have known this would happen, well some motivation came back to me so heЯe's the deal, NaЯ won't be going on an indefinite hiatus but instead I'll just continue to update the comic wheneveЯ I want. Some updates will take longeЯ than otheЯs. It's annoying not being decisive, I'm annoying...

I am going through probably the most emotional time of my life right now I think, it's bad enough that I decided I should write a journal about it because it does help me feel a little better. So some of you may remember a while back I wrote a journal about my father and how he is mentally ill and he even had to go to an institution at one point. Well my father was diagnosed with schizophrenia, I think I mentioned how he believed he was being spoken too by god.
Before I go any further I will stress that I am in fact a spiritual person and I do believe in god. I believe it is possible some people feel they are being talked to by god and that's great if they are. And I point this out because I did have one user complain because they thought my father was just simply a god believer and I thought he was crazy, and I must clarify that is not what I am saying at all. What is happening to my father is NOT good in anyway! My mother sat me down today and had a long talk with me. She says my father has been on medication and has been doing better for the most part until last week. Last week my father heard voices in his head, again thinking it was god telling him that he can, I guess be like Jesus, and save mankind by sacrificing himself.
So I guess at work my father was planning on taking his own life during a break time at work, but then suddenly got called out. So then he tried to go to a hotel again with the intention of committing suicide, but the hotel was full and even the one next to it, so my father decided it was a sign he was too late and never went through with it. But just knowing my dad was even gonna go through with it was enough to make me very sad. Especially to think that if he never got called out or if those hotels weren't full, my father might have been dead right now. My mom even said that there is "good bye" letters for everybody including me but she will not let me see it.
So I figured I would write a journal to kinda get this off my chest. No one here ever really complains about my updating anyways and I am very thankful for that! But if I am even more slow than I was already intending to be, well now at least you know what I'm going through.
So thanks for understanding...
