Day Job!I am excited to announce that I now have a day-job at a frozen yogurt chain that start today. I am furthering my goal of independent living!
Of course, this will take up time and energy, so comic updates, Patreon rewards, and
other art might be delayed. I'll do my best to keep on schedule, but I appreciate your patience as I adjust to this new experience.
Daily Positive Thoughts (Hiatus)Edit September 12th
I am going to take a break from Daily Positive Thoughts for a while... I am just so tired from work that it's becoming difficult to think of original things to say everyday.
I am going to try to post some positive thoughts here everyday!
I want to make sure that I continue to think positively, and its one of the great joys in my life to be able to cheer up, help, and inspire others. I'll try to restrain my wordiness and keep the messages succinct, but thoughtful nonetheless.
There is always a fight, a struggle. We can not let ourselves give up because something isn't easy- it never will be. To achieve what is right, we must be patient and unstopping.
The struggle doesn't ever get easier, but you- and we- will get stronger.
You've earned a nap.
Nothing that makes you smile is too small or too silly to be a powerful force. When you find something that makes you happy, hold onto
Leaving GriffiaI need to leave Griffia.
I honestly can't afford developing emotional attachment to characters and stories that are expensive to obtain. I don't participate in the ARPG, so there is no reason I can't just make my own characters to tell stories. I know I've done this all before, and while I hope I can stick to my word this time, you never can be sure. I am hoping that I can sever my emotional connection to the group.
I will be leaving the Griffia Discord Chat, as well. I don't talk much in there anymore, and it'll be easier to let myself let go of Griffia if I am not a part of that server. If you want to talk to me, you're always welcome to PM me (Lucheek#2627) or join the Wool Wolf or Aushpash servers.
I do want to say, though, that none of this is because of the Griffian community or moderators. The community has never been anything but welcoming and kind to me. I know the moderators work incredibly hard to do the best they can. I'm really oblivious to whatever
Aushpash GA Applications Closed! Thank you to everybody who applied- your interest in the group and species means a lot to me. I have no doubt that as Aushpash (hopefully) grows, that I will be looking for more Guest Artists but right now I think we have enough. Even if you were not chosen, please don't feel discouraged to apply again at some future point.
As a reminder, the group IS OPEN!! You get 5 free MYO's as well, so even if you weren't chosen you can create creatures...and earn a nifty patch too!!

Species Communities / ARPG FeaturesI wanted to spread the word about some species communities and upcoming art-based role playing groups!
PurretARPG was a group I founded, but had to hand-off to somebody else because of personal reasons. For a while, it was on hiatus.... but, now it's back! Bored-Tigecko has been adding new lore and events and is currently running a fun design contest!
> 4 Sons Design Contest <
Purret is still under heavy construction, with many of the ARPG functions on hold or in transition. I know Bored-Tigecko is looking for moderators to help build the community. So, if you're interested in becoming involved in ARPG management, I would definitely suggest checking Purret out! I believe its a great way to get started and experience, and has a lot of potential to grow into something big! Oh, and did I mention the species are OPEN- you don't need to pay to play!
Species Features!!If you are looking to get into some new species, here are some that I think are super neat.
I will add to this journal as I find more!!
OPEN OR SEMI-OPEN SPECIES
Dranaero is a semi-open ARPG-based species with incredibly customizable SEAHORSES. SEAHORSES!!
The group has a team-based mechanic which I always think are super fun!
Kiichii are a fully open species based on stuffed animals and Tamagotchis! They are super adorable.
Monduas might just be a one-off, but I would love for them to get enough attention to become a full species. They are technicolored, draconic ant-eaters!! ANT-EATERS!!
Swool are inter-dimensional sweater creatures! Su

I'm still accepting commissions, you can check the details below. Thank you!!! 💛
Thank you everyone so much for your thoughts, prayers and donations. Unfortunately dad did not wake up, he passed away last night. 😢
We still owe a big amount of money from the hospital (around 11 grand) and they might not be able to release him or we won't be able to get his death certificate until we pay the bill. We're hoping that they would at least accept our promissory note but yea, I need to do something. I'm very thankful for all the donations that you guys have offered but I realized I can't really rely on it alone so I have decided to just open a new batch of commissions cause I really don't have any other choice. I'm gonna be accepting slots until I reached my goal s

Using Cross-Figure With Genesis 8Cross-Figure Genesis 3 is a program that allows you to use Genesis 3 Female hair and clothing on Genesis 3 Male and vice versa without using AutoFit. There are some extra steps using it with Genesis 8, but you don't have to be able to use a modeling program (unless you want to make a better ID morph after you're done, but we'll get to that).
Here's a YouTube version. You'll have to turn your sound up. Sorry.
Genesis 8 Male and Female
Instructions G8F to G8M:
Load Genesis 8 Female into the scene.
Load a piece of clothing or hair onto Genesis 8 Female that you wish to convert.
Go to the Parameters tab. If you do not have one, you can create one by right-clicking near your existing tabs and finding it in the list.

F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
Happy New Year!Hope you're all doing well!
Sorry I haven't been around here at all! Been busy these past few months and I've found that dA stresses me out LOL. I feel like it brings out the worst in me and I definitely feel more relaxed since my time away from it. BUT I'd still like to come back and draw stuff here again eventually. I miss drawing pony stuff and the next gen characters and all that. So maybe soon! I know I'm definitely rusty but it'll be cool to see how much my style's changed I guess.
Just thought I'd throw in a little update. You all know how 2017 went for me based on my journals but I'd like to hear about yours! Go ahead an comment some of the cool stuff you got to do this past year or maybe even the not so cool stuff. Anything! Go for it! I'm curious~
Happy 2018 ✨
