It's been well a year since my last journal entry, but since I've been posting artwork again, I figured it was time to update you all with some words, too.
First of all, some life stuff: I'm in grad school now. This definitely is taking up the majority of my time, but it's also something I love doing and I'm passionate about. Fortunately, I can still do pixel art and other artwork whenever I have free time. It's a great way to unwind after a stressful week of classes.
Secondly, I've begun live streaming on Twitch
again, doing some pixel art and also playing indie games. If that sounds like something you'd like to watch, you can tune in to my channel: www.twitch.tv/oripoke/
Also, I wanted to address a persistent question that keeps coming up: no, I'm not doing any more work on Pokemon Uranium. The project is complete as far as I'm concerned. So, please don't send me bug reports or asking me where you can download the game or anything like that. Any new artwork I do (ie. fakemon sprites) won't be for Pokemon Uranium. Aotius and Mutios were the last sprites that I will make for the game.
As for new projects... with school keeping me busy I'm not really looking to take on any new game projects at the moment. But I'm not ruling out the possibility entirely. One thing's for sure is that I won't be doing any more fan games... so please, please don't ask me if I'll sprite for yours.
On the other hand... Commissions
Since I'm back at school and money is a little tight at the moment, I'm reopening pixel art commissions
so that I can get back in the groove of making art on a regular basis. These will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. I will open up a number of slots and close commissions when they are filled.I can make (and greatly enjoy making):
IconsI can also do (but enjoy less and thus charge more):
Scenery / tiles
I charge hourly based on how long it takes me to make a sprite. Larger sprites will take longer and thus be more expensive. I take PayPal.
Anyone interested can send me a Note on DA, a DM on Twitter, or e-mail me at: TheZephyrDimension@gmail.com Commission Slots

That's all for now! I hope to do some more Monster Hunter pixels and maybe some halloween-themed stuff. Hope you guys enjoy my art that's to come.
'Til next time,
