Emergency CommissionsUpdate: Expenses come to about $800. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you can't contribute monetarily, please spread the word.
Some very large and unexpected expenses came up this weekend so I'm in need of some extra cash.
GenCon 2018!I know things have been relatively quiet around here as of late, but I'm still working on Tale of Kain pages. I'm finishing up the chapter and trying to finish up writing the second and third chapters.
I'll be at GenCon in Indianapolis through Sunday and I cant/ won't be bringing my work with me since I'm using this as a pseudo-vacation.
Also I start school up again on the 20th and I'll be making adjustments to Tale of Kain and my Patreon as a result, those announcemeets will come after the convention (and a brief recovery period).
Life UpdateI'm moving in a little less than 2 weeks. I found a room for rent in the area and I'm finally moving forward from my aunt's basement.

Emerald Skies questionsA: A lot of people have been asking really good questions about what happened after the events of Emerald Skies, so I'm making this to put it all in one place. I'll add more as questions come up.
Q: If I remember correctly you mentioned there was a reason Volkner was so gloomy in pearl? What was that? Or did I just miss the page that explained it? Sorry if I did!
A: Volkner goes through a rough break up and suffers from mild depression (he takes meds for it usually).
Q: What happened to the Aqua agents Gabby & Ty? Did Elon punish them for Silver?
A: They got arrested along with all the other Aqua and Magma members and went to jail. Elon never punished them personally.
Q: Did Deoxys do anything else after saving Elon, or was it a cameo?
A: Deoxys thanked Elon for saving it then went back to space (or just somewhere else).
Q: How would you explain Pallet leaving the team and returning after so much time?
A: Elon took him out of the

13 things about me!!
1. I had a long hiatus from anime up until about 2 years ago. Current favorites are Food Wars! and Yuri!!! On Ice.
2. Besides Pokemon, my favorite video games are Dragon Age, Diablo 2 and Skyrim
3. My first video game was Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Genesis.
4. I'm a dork for musicals
5. I recently nearly made Wil Wheaton cry at C2E2 with some fan art that I drew for him.
6. I met Veronica Taylor at C2E2 as well.
7. I'm a nervous person when meeting celebrities so I don't stick around to chat since I will trip over my own tongue. Also I don't want to hold up the line.
8. I've been working with Copics a lot more. Trying to do at least one piece a week using them.
9. Currently working on a new comic project that I hope to launch within the next year or so.
10. I prefer writing character driven narratives rather than something with an epic
Coming to a closeThis journal is difficult for me to write. As of the next page of Emerald Skies, the comic will be discontinued. A lot of thought and time as been put into this decision I have come to. I've been struggling to keep my motivation for the project for a while now and after 6 years I have come to the decision to move on to a different project. As much as I would love to give Emerald Skies a proper conclusion, I cannot bring myself to continue the project for another 3+ years with the rate I've been going let alone adding another project on top of that.
I plan on doing summaries that include illustrations of major events and characters that would have made an appearance just so you guys know how the story ends and what happens to everybody. You all deserve that much at the very least.
Thank you so much for your support.

Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:
~ TIPS ~
Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar
[CLOSED] COMMISSION SLOTSA COUNTDOWN TIMER TO OPENING MY COMMISSIONS
I hope you all are doing well
I'm opening a few commissions slots right now. But as I promised to some of you, they all are "first come - first serve slots". Also, commissioners would be added to my "To-do list" in the order they took the slot, which means that the one who took the slot first would get his order finished first. This time it'll take me from one to four weeks to finish your commission (depends on your number on my "To-do list"). It might take longer as my schedule is unstable ^_^' But if I need a lot of extra time I will definitely tell you.
YOU CAN ONLY TAKE A SLOT WHEN THE TITLE OF THIS JOURNAL SAYS "OPEN"
NOTICE - 1: One slot - one drawing
16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they

Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to
Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
