Hello!! While I haven't updated my journal in awhile, I am still pretty active here! And elsewhere, as well. I'm on a bunch of other social media sites if you guys wanna give a follow/like/whatever! :D I know some people aren't on DA as much as they used to be, so feel free to look me up on the other sites. Keep in mind I'm still filling out my galleries for some of them, so don't be surprised if you see images you've seen before!

I have also updated my website to be a little more current, getting rid of a lot of unnecessary things and changing it a bit so it's easier for me to update. Check it out here!

Happy 2016! Patreon Restructure!

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 11, 2016, 12:35 PM



Hello! :D Happy 2016!

It's been roughly a year since I started my Patreon (and with it, consistent art!) and I want to first say a huge thank you to my supporters, whether you are pledging on Patreon or not. So, thank you very much! :heart: Speaking of Patreon, a very good friend of mine has started hers up and I invite you to go check it out!! Here is her page!

:heart: :iconobscuroarcanum: :heart:

-----------------------

Patreon restructure! I have restructured my Patreon for 2016! You will find new rewards, changed tiers, a new Patreon page and much more!

Here's a brief rundown of all the changes!
  • New Patreon front page, updated to the new style! Rewards and the next milestone are easily seen on the right with recent posts underneath the main body of text!
  • New Rewards! Step-by-step progress images and Image Studies!
  • Reward Tier Changes! Tier $10+ now has videos! $5+ has products labeled on the image! And more!
  • Previews of rewards! Get a glimpse into what you can receive in specific tiers! You can check that out right here!
Here is a summary of the changes of Patreon rewards (TL;DR format!) (these are not the full rewards):
  • $1 - Early access. Previously only for $5+ Tiers.
  • $5 - Step-by-step progress images. Previously a milestone. | Product list with links and labeled images, the labeled image previously $10+ Tiers only.
  • $10 - Step-by-step progress images. Previously a milestone. | Photoshop Timelapse videos. Previously $15 Tiers only.
  • $15 - Step-by-step progress images. Previously a milestone. | Image Studies. Brand New!

For ALL the details and full changes to rewards, check out my Patreon page.

Again, thank you all very much for your continued support. It has helped me to grow as an artist because I have the motivation to keep creating! So thank you very much and here's to a very productive 2016 for all of us!

As for other updates, I've been hard at work on my art and art projects! Not to mention my Patreon! All of which have been very challenging and rewarding! Keep an eye out for more art from me in the coming weeks, I have a lot of stuff up my sleeves, so hopefully you all enjoy!

Have a great week and make lots of art! :heart:

Thank you so so much for all the comments, favorites and +watches from everyone! Welcome to all the new watchers! :D Thank you all so much!

Soul Soup was such a great image personally because I was able to tell a story which I struggle to do in my art. I'm certainly glad I made the image for the RDNA Challenge and if anyone has any suggestions on how to add more story to my art, please feel free! :D

Special thanks to :iconbreerothman: for the feature! :heart:

I'll be having something new in the next week or so, but you can see more of my art via Patreon, Facebook and my art porfolio!

Much love and hugs and thank you all so much again!

Patreon Bandwagon!

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 5, 2015, 3:04 PM



I've leaped onto the Patreon bandwagon!

:star: My Patreon Page! :star:

For those of you who don't know, Patreon is a fairly new website that allows people to support their favorite artists by pledging to them! Pledge however much you want or based on the reward tiers on the artists' pages! It's an amazing website and I know I've always wanted to support my favorite artists without having to wait for commission slots to open or have to pay those kinds of prices.

For future art pieces, you'll be able to get full size images, video timelapses, tips and thoughts on said image, product lists and a lot more! Different tiers will have different rewards, so make sure you check them all out! In the future, I hope to offer tutorials, more videos and even delve into 3D creation someday! :D

Thank you so much for your support either way. I know I haven't been posting very often, but that's going to change no matter what! I'll be posting a lot more often to DA, Facebook and Renderosity, so everyone can look forward to that!

Much love and thank you for checking out my page! :heart:

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to leave me a comment here, on my Patreon page or send me a note!

Edit: Commission changes. Clearer (hopefully), price changes and new examples.

PLEASE. READ the entire post before sending me a note. kthx <3

I do not accept DeviantPoint Commissions, sorry. PayPal only.

Thank you so much for taking a look! If you'd like a quote, feel free to send me a note (may vary from final price)!

If you are interested in a commission from me:

1. Please look over my gallery to get an idea of what I create and what I'm good at.
2. Give a complete, detailed description of what you'd like. The more detail, the better!
3. All art is created by me and I own it. You cannot resell. It is for personal use only.
4. If you’re interested in my process, feel free to check out my Art Process page.
5. Payment is half before I begin and half upon completion.
6. Prices below are GUIDELINES. Your price may vary! As a general rule, the more complicated, the higher the cost.

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 12, 2012, 3:46 PM



Hello, hello!

Haven't updated since last July trololol Not much of a journal writer.

Me and art still fighting lately! Just not feeling it. Not enough passion for it to put the work into it or something. Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas and New Year, though!

Just been playing games lately, not much else! Star Wars: Old Republic, Heroes of Might and Magic (various versions), etc.

Maybe I'll use this art .. whatever you wanna call it, lull? dryspell? whatever.. to work on my comic. /shrug

EVERYONE HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY AND WEEKEND, see you in six months when I update again trolololollllll

Sharing the Art (10 slots left!)

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 20, 2011, 8:55 PM



Hi all! I did one of these quite a long time ago, but now that I have a few more watchers, I think this will work a lot better. ;) I'm just spreading the art love around after finding this on :iconnickroblesart: journal. :heart:

As for an update on art, I'm sort of in the same situation. I'll get stuff out when I can, though! I still have some pieces of art backlogged for you all, so keep an eye out ;)

Much :heart: to you all! Thank you for supporting me and my art!

----------------------------------------------

Copied from :iconnickroblesart: journal, hope you don't mind! :D

Be one of the first 14 people commenting on this journal entry, and I will put your avatar and three deviations that I will personally select from your gallery in this "Share the Art" feature.

IMPORTANT: If you do comment, you're expected to do the same in your own journal; putting me on the first place, completing the list with 14 other people to make a sum of 15 people..

The idea behind this is NOT to get a free feature, but to help spread art and artists around for everyone. So why not check out the artists on other peoples' list?

Beautiful DayI wanted it to be a horrible day.  I prayed for a dreary, raining, nasty day.  It just seemed it would be easier to handle if that was the case.  But that didn't happen.  It was an offensely beautiful afternoon as I stepped out of the car.  A cool breeze blew softly over the warm rays of the fall sun.  The sky was so clear I could still see the church from where I stood.  The brightness reflected back the colors of the flowers perfectly, making them almost seem to glow.  The freshly cut grass gave a poignant, exhilarating scent hang in the air.  For a few moments, it felt like Easter and I hated it.  My heart contorted as the world refused to mourn like I did.  It wasn't fair.  Across town, children were playing.  The ranch was giving its Sunday riding lessons.  Someone was probably even getting married somewhere.  And here I was, standin Heian Jingu Shrine - Kyoto by kamiki Kitsuko - Alaskan Klee Kai by kamiki

Another Daily Deviation!! D: (Yes it was several days ago, but just got around to writing about it now).

Thank you so much for all of the watches, favorites and heartfelt comments! There are far to many of each to thank you all individually, but just know I appreciate them all very much! They certainly keep my going and I'm so glad you all enjoyed 'Plunderer's Greed' and the rest of my gallery.

BIG special thank you to :iconrainfeatherpearl: for the suggestion and :iconkeremgo: for the feature!! Thank you both so very much! :heart: :heart:

Still struggling with art, but I get some things out from time to time.

Thank you again for your continued support! :D

I want to thank you ALL so much for your incredible comments, favorites, watches, etc etc on Whispering Wind and the rest of my gallery. Big FAT thank you to Fiveonthe (fiveonthe.deviantart.com/) for the suggestion!! And of course the awesome artofkerem (artofkerem.deviantart.com/) for the feature!

Been in a big art slump lately. Lots of unfinished projects and no desire to finish them or start anything new really. I've been messing around with 3D modelling, but it's a very slow process to learn anything. While I think my art isn't terrible, I'm not really happy with what I do lately. I'm not sure how to move forward either. I seem to be stuck.

Anyway! Hopefully you all have a wonderful holiday and awesome New Year's! Maybe I'll get around to finishing something for all my watchers new and old! :heart:

I want to send BIG thank you's to all of the people that have DevWatched me over the past few months and also all of those wonderful people who have commented on my work. After looking at my messages, I have over 250 to look through and figured it might just be better to make a journal to thank you all. I know, its impersonal, but I didn't want to forget about you!

I will be doing better from now on, don't worry! I appreciate each and every one of you and so glad that you like my work enough to fill your inbox. :D I am not worthy! :heart:

Got a few pictures coming soon. One from the RDNA Challenge (Creature Feature) and one for the Angry Crayon event!

Thank you all so much again. :) :heart:

Copy and pasted from :iconmottinthepot:

1) For each of the 15 first people commenting on this journal-entry I will put his/her avatar and the three deviations I like most from his/her gallery on the list~

2) If you comment, you'll have to do the same in your journal, putting me on the first spot. Completing it this way lists 15 people and 45 deviations! You get a free feature, and the meme grows exponentially.

The List:
