Hello all yous guys. It's a new freakin' year and boy are my arms tired.
I have a shitton of art I've been hoarding in need of uploading. In order to avoid a deluge I'll schedule it. Everything is posted on my Patreon if you want to join: https://www.patreon.com/hibbary
Secondly, for those who are new or who missed the other journals, I have a fanart account here: ~we-were-in-love (https://www.deviantart.com/we-were-in-love) A lot of it is just scratches and scribbles. I'm thinking that the VERY BEST ones I'm going to crosspost here. There's a handful worthy of being in my main gallery. So if you find the same art in either place, I'm not stealing from myself. It's me.
-Crossposted from FA, so if you're there and don't feel like reading the same thing twice.... :P
I'm soooo bad at posting up journals these days. Kinda disappeared off the face of the planet. So here's an update.
Site work has slowed down a good deal, for which I am grateful. I always have a low-energy period in spurts throughout fall and then during most of winter followed by a wild burst of output when it finally warms up in spring. I'm PRETTY sure I'm solar-powered.
The bad news is that my income has more or less ground to a halt. Which like, rice and beans for the hibbary this winter; but the GOOD news is that I can finally focus on pa
Jeebus this year just whizzed right by. Moved again. Finally settled. Getting ready for Furpocalypse, for which I am one of the GOHs. If you're in the Northeast somewhere, stop in by! :P
Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I'm on DA for the first time in a few weeks after moving and getting a new HD in my aging computer. Seems like most folk have moved to Tumblr :P
I received it a few days ago but I've been busy with work, babysitting my Patreon, and being frazzled in between :D It's so awesome. I love the eyes especially. And the jaw shape. It's going to live up on my computer tower with my cat and butt dragon.
The artist is ~HereThereBeSculpture (https://www.deviantart.com/heretherebesculpture) She lives near my old hometown. She wanted to make a sculpture version of and I thought, how cool is that! She shipped me the original and I'm astounded that it arrived unbroken. That is some primo packing. She'd be great for MLP commissions I think.
If so, you can help by becoming my patron at Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/hibbary?ty=h
As I started living an adult life and needing more dollars I had to put the vast majority of my creative energy and work hours into my day job. With Patreon it gives me a little wiggle room in order to make practice art, fun art, paintings, and so on. The more people pledge, the more art I'll be able to make. Though my Patrons get early access, that art will be posted here for those people who are unable to donate.
So please consider pledging so I can get the ball rolling on regular artwork again.
I guess Tumblr is the new DeviantART. I still can't get into that place. On the upside there are far fewer trolls here than ever. It just isn't worth it anymore, I suppose.
I'm going to have some freetime for once in the summer and I wonder what all y'all (whoever is left) would like to see? Tutorials? More textures? Lemme know.
So my friend asked me to give her a shoutout for a contest going on:
Now, my scruples dictate that I ask you to vote whichever one you think is best but I mean, c'mon, she has a ship AND an octopus made of hair on her head.
(sorry for the repost. I had to make sure it was ok for me to sell online :) )
So you guys remember: https://www.sofawolf.com/products/artistic-visions-hibbary
I have a few of them for those who didn't feel like buying through the site. I will ship them out myself and sign them if you like.
For those who live in the U.S. the cost will be $20. This includes shipping.
For those outside the U.S. the cost is $27. This includes shipping.
If you'd like one, send me a note. I only have 10 right now so it's first come first serve.
