Hello everyone! It's finally time for the first journal for 2022! Once again, I'd like to wish Happy New Year to everyone - may it be filled with health, positivity and creativity! :) There is a couple of things I'd like to touch on today -
I'd like to thank all those who have already subscribed to my DA subscriptions and supported the Brigade through all the merchandise purchases over the holidays! Thank you, it means a lot to me :).
The commission queue for 2022 is open! It's filling fast and I might have to put a limit on the number of pieces that are in the queue, due to my ongoing work on the Conjure Card Game, which takes up a sizeable portion of my commission time. As usual I'll be using the 2021 commission sheet/rates until July 2022. If you happen to have any questions or are interested in commissioning me, feel free to send me a note/dm/email.
Brigade Mercenary Project
We are planning to do some slight changes to the format of the Brigade mercenary project in 2022 and expand on it, bringing back some of the old favorites like Faction Focus months and more :). Stay tuned!
All of the mercenaries have been given a few weeks off to celebrate the feast of Winter Veil and New Year with their friends and families.
@TindomielSilverthorn's private Silverglade has been given commendation for outstanding performance during 2021 and earned 200 Reputation points.
@jmaeq's private Vaneihan has been given commendation for outstanding performance during 2021 and earned 200 Reputation points.
@LeilaAscariz' private Nightbreeze has been given commendation for outstanding performance during 2021 and earned 200 Reputation points.
@Steahl's private Jaeger has been given commendation for outstanding performance during 2021 and earned 200 Reputation points.
@astralfox0893 's private Deuce has successfully completed the entrance procedures and is joining up the brigade Patrol Corps, earning 150 Reputation points.
I'll be sharing a more thorough reputation reward list that will encompass the entire year of 2021 later in January, along with annual features and more! For now I'd like to at the very least award some of the main Rep point rewards.

Hello everyone! I'd like to wish you all Happy New Year of 2022. I hope that it's filled with health and creativity. May it also be kinder and more positive for all of us than the previous two.
Hello everyone! As promised, I'd like to squeeze in one little journal before the holidays.
I hope everyone is in good health and humor and on behalf of the Brigade I wish you all Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays if you celebrate and a Happy New Year! I hope that year 2022 will be filled with creativity and generally be kinder to all of us than the previous two.
I'd like to also thank everyone who has supported me and the Brigade through the year, be it via Patreon, commissions, donations and merchandise purchases or via comments, favorites and general interaction. Thank you! It means the world to me!
One important announcement - my move from Patreon is now nearly complete - the account will be closed later this year. I've opened Deviant Art Subscription tiers to reflect those I had on Patreon and would like to thank all those who have already subscribed. I'll have to impose a cap on the combined number of the tier II and III subs as they are both getting custom artwork rewards (Brigade Fan gets one 2x a year, Supporter 1x) and will therefore have some limits.
You can see a selection of past art rewards for supporters here -
Now let's resume the Brigade Christmas uploads (no chance I'll manage to upload it all this year though )!
Hello everyone! It's finally time for the last monthly feature of 2021! I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. If you are sick, I wish you speedy recovery!
As usual, I have gathered all these wonderful artworks from all over DA. I hope you will like the selected pieces! If you have a moment, please visit the galleries of these fine artists and share some art love. I'm also considering doing one mega feature for new years, recapping some wonderful pieces from 2021, let's see if I manage :D.
Now without further ado, let's dive into some art!
