Hello everyone! It's been a long time since I last posted a journal about something else than just commissions and work.
There is a good reason why I haven't been more open about my life lately, that's because aside from when it interrupts the process of working on your commissions I don't want to bore you with the continuing unfortunate events that have followed me around.
One of those unfortunate events being the continuing deletion of many of the commissions I've worked here in DA. As you know DA is in a witch hunt of sorts, deleting everything they deem "not devianty" enough. I understand they deleting any kind of pictute showing sexual toys inserted in characters, that is in their rules and I posted them knowing that, but lately people have been reporting pictures that don't even contain a single nude character, and they are being deleted too.
Last time I posted four commissions and immediately got 25 pictures reported and more than half of those deleted. So I decided to accept this NO MORE.
I am sorry with all my clients but from now on I AM NOT POSTING YOUR COMMISSIONS HERE IN MY DA GALLERY. I will be posting them slowly but steady in my old blog (look for finger strikes back) and in Tumblr, where you can find me as The Cherry Dome.
I will continue to accept commissions here, but they will be posted in those other pages. And since I still have pictures being reported you might notice more of them dissapearing from this gallery.
THE CHERRY COMIC.
Now, the second matter. I used to post a comic here in DA. A Cherry Flavored Story, I had a lot of fun writing it and finishing each page with some help. But many things happened since last year when I posted the last page. In short: I had to move from the place I was living, I've even moved a second time since then; I got a girlfriend as well as some new friends from the bdsm community I go to; I am trying to earn a living as a writer, (that's why I am working less days in commissions these days) but I also need to work on commissions to earn money to continue living. Someone betrayed me after I helped him for many years, and there's also the matter of all the misterious sickness that have plagued me since last year; the last of which has proved to be the worst of all, I didn't knew my spine was in such a bad shape until I just couldn't walk anymore and had to go with an especialist to check what was going on.
So all of these things combined had taken all of my possible free time, that's why the comic was stopped.
Now I want to continue the comic, but I am all by myself to work on it. Remember the Cherry Comic was something I worked on just because I wanted to, for fun, in my free time. Now I don't have enough free time to produce a comic page per week. Plus I am not earning as much money as I used to, since I am working on personal projects to start working as a writer, so I am accepting less commissions than before.
I've thought a lot about that and with some help and support from Hitori thought about the possibility of continue working on the comic with a little help from Patreon. And of course help from people who want to see the comic being continued. Yes, this is the part where I finally move to the Patreon thing.
I am thinking on using PAtreon to help me continue working on the comic, as you just read in this journal I just can't continue working on it for free since my income is more limited, just like my time. That's why I want to ask you if some of you are interested in the continuation of the comic to help me via Patreon so I can continue working on it. Of course we'll have to think about the rewards and all those things, maybe pinups of the characters of the comic in more kinky situations? Maybe pinups of the most voted characters, copyrighted or OC's to be featured in a more "bondagey" situation.
What do you think? Would some of you be interested in helping me continue the Cherry comic? Please leave a comment if you do
And finally I can't leave you without some art, can I?
Let's do the feature of commissions posted by my clients, as well as colorings of my linearts and more linearts!
First, here we have some colorings done on linearts made by me, by
You don't know it but I really love Miss Martian:
which was very fun to do and it's even better to see it now in color.
And also Rise from Persona 4:
With all the details added by him I dare call this commission a collaboration! I really liked the addition of the TV frame surrounding the picture. Great job, Anubis!
A lineart commission made for
featuring her officer OC Carolina:
Here are some colorings made by
on commissions I did for him!

Here are a couple of commissions I did for
, and this one:
. Especially proud of this last one with the redheads
Also, more character designs for
!! New girls I designed based on the universe of Star Wars for him!! Take a look:
who I really, really like and enjoyed doing since she is essentially a Star Wars version of my very own Cereza
Also, a new Pokegirl for him, based on a Pheromosa:
And last but not least, have you seen the Android designs I did for
I am already drawing the shenanigans tha happen between these android girls and her friends that work for them and you can see some of them here:
Valentine got herself some very pretty stands for her cakes.
Some puppy problems, totally not inspired by me adopting a new and cute doggy.
. These last four just recently finished this week, on Monday and Tuesday.
If you made it until the end of the journal, congratulations! I hope you liked the pictures and take a little time to leave a comment, subscribe... no wait, this is not Youtube.
As you can see the drawing never ends and I still have a lot to do. This is why I ask you for your help to continue producing the Cherry comic, and maybe one day reach my goal of being a professional writer.
This is all for now, expect the opening of new commission this weekend, thanks for your time and expect new commissions posted in pages and galleries other than this one!
See ya around!
