Making the Shift [No Longer a Furry]

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 8, 2017, 1:43 PM


I don't really know why I feel the need to post a journal about this, but here I go, I suppose.

I'm making the shift from furry art into humanoid art, and for a long time I haven't been a social part of the furry fandom as much as I would use to define myself as an actual furry. The only reason I called myself one was because of my art interests, and since that's changing too, there's really not much left keeping me tethered to the label. It's something I've had to hide when I'm gaming, something I've been ashamed of, and as much as I'd like to say "Fuck it, who cares what anyone else thinks", I'm just not as attached to being a furry as I used to be anyway. So there we go, I'll be posting less anthro art (though I probably won't stop completely) and more humanoid art in the future. Any commissions that come in for anthro/furry art will still be accepted, but my own personal art will not really be themed around that anymore.

Being a furry has been quite an experience in my life, and has opened me up to a lot of different perspectives and zones on the internet. I am grateful to have had that experience of being a furry and identifying so heavily with the term, but now it's time to say good bye!

Thank you for reading. <3

I am so freakin' in love with this adoptable -->  [OPEN] Lullaby Unicorn -OTA- by WiviAdopts
But my next paycheck doesn't come in until next week but I NEED HER

If you want to commission me I'll take some NYP commissions, just send me some points or money (through paypal) and I'll draw a thing for you!! The more points/money you send, the more time I'll spend on the art!

I have an addiction and I am not even ashamed SHE'S JUST SO BEAUTIFUL

RANT: 'Don't thank me or comment on my profile'

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 15, 2017, 9:57 PM


I'm sorry in advance if I offend you with this rant. My opinions on this subject do not lead me to assume anything about anyone's personality.

It really bugs me when people have "Don't thank me for watches, llamas, favs, etc." or "Don't comment above this featured comment" on their profile because it's such a rude and ungrateful trend. I understand some people may want to keep their profile clean but that's like saying "Don't give me gifts because I want to keep my house clean. Any gift you give me will be tossed in the garage and forgotten." or "Don't return the kindness that I gave to you by adding your work to my favorites or following you. I don't want to hear about you being grateful." It's rude and ignorant and I don't understand why people do it. I've actually become SCARED to comment on people's profile now for fear of being yelled at for doing the wrong thing. I know it can get redundant to hear "Thanks for the watch" but it's honestly just a polite thing to say, just like how it may be redundant to hear "Hi how are you" in real life, of course everyone says those things many times a day but that doesn't mean we stop saying them. It's POLITE.

Gratitude improves emotions every day and taking a moment to thank those around you for things they've done is actually HEALTHY and KIND. It boggles my mind that some people REJECT gratitude because it 'messes up their page'. Grow up and accept kindness. Ignorance is what is wrong with humanity.

THANK YOU for reading this. I really appreciate all of my watchers and those who favorite and comment on my work. It does make my day and if I weren't so busy, I would personally thank and give something to every one who's ever watched me.

If you haven't today, go and say something nice to someone!

Hospitalized

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 19, 2016, 8:41 PM


Hello everyone, I just wanted to post a small update on my life, I was hospitalized for the first time in my life a couple of days ago. I went in on the count of a really severe asthma attack, and they kept me overnight due to an abnormally fast heartrate. It wasn't anything serious and they ended up discharging me with some steroid prescriptions, but for someone who's deathly afraid of needles, hospitals, and doctors, these last 2 days have been the longest of my life. I had multiple anxiety attacks during the whole thing, and I got only a couple hours of sleep a night, and without eating anything for a few days straight. It was awful by my own fault, if I hadn't been so scared it wouldn't have been bad.

So followup, I am exhausted, mal-nutritioned, hopped up on steroids, and I can't go more than 20 feet without having to stop for a breathing break. Work tomorrow is going to be interesting for sure.

TL;DR: Bottom line is, I'm shaken up but on the ascent into better health.

Thank you anyone who stuck through that whole thing.

REQUESTS! (Drop reference here)

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 10, 2016, 9:45 PM


Hello everyone, I won't be doing a raffle due to complications in my life right now, but I thought I'd make a journal for you guys to post references to characters you'd like requests of. I WON'T promise that I'll get to your character and most likely I'll only draw characters that I think I'll enjoy drawing, but you can't complain for free art. This will mostly serve as a list of characters I can draw to practice certain things or just fun sketches in my free time. DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING HUGE! Most likely they'll just be sketches, if anything. Again, my life just got a whole ton more complicated. I moved just a week ago, my full-time summer job just started and I'm not only dealing with living alone for the first time in a couple years, I'm exhausted from work, stressed from managing my WoW guild, and up to my gills in art commissions and requests. So please do not get your hopes up with this. If you'd like to drop a ref, please do so and I MAY get around to drawing your character.

Thank you all for your patience, I can't stress enough about how bad I feel that the raffle idea fell through. I know a few of you added me to your watch solely because of that, so I wanted to say sorry specifically if you did because I feel like I took advantage of the +watch. Thank you again for your continued support.

Raffle Update + FurryNetwork

Journal Entry: Mon May 23, 2016, 11:47 PM


So I definitely bit off more than I could chew with the raffle thing. Instead of that, I'll probably do a request journal where you guys can post refs and I'll doodle some here and there when I get a chance. I'm super sorry for those who were really counting on it.

In other news, I made an account on FurryNetwork. After the FA password leak drama and its sellout to IMVU, I pretty much stopped using it but I've been looking for a good website to upload my furry work and connect with other furries. FN looks really promising and even though it's small now, I THINK it may become the new FA. So head over and give me a watch if you'd like! > Click here <

Raising Commission Prices in 3 Days

Journal Entry: Wed May 4, 2016, 3:41 PM


I'm going to be raising my prices in 3 days so if you wanted a commission before they go up, now would be the time! For a while I feel like I've been selling myself a little short since before I started doing commissions here I would sell my art for no less than $20. Of course I won't be raising the prices /that/ high since I know a lot of you earn your points through commissions yourselves, but I do feel a little cheap working for only like $5. Anyway, I'm giving you guys three days to commission whatever you want for the prices they are now before they get raised.

New Sketch Account (Winners Chosen!)

Journal Entry: Wed May 4, 2016, 1:24 AM


Hey everyone! I made an account for all of my dumb sketches. As a selfish little promotion for myself, I'm offering a free sketch bust to the first 5 people who +watch that account! (You must also be watching this account) The winners have been chosen! Grats!
:iconnullibyte::iconnullibyte::iconnullibyte::iconnullibyte:

I'm also gonna be starting a bi-weekly sketch raffle, where I'll put all of my watchers (must be watching both accounts) into a list and pull a name at random every two weeks, and the winner gets a little colored sketch prize! So even if you aren't one of the first 5, you'll have a chance every 2 weeks to get some free art!

That being said, I'm going to bed right now so I'll check once I wake up tomorrow.

Looking to Buy Commissions!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 25, 2016, 6:58 PM


Hey everyone, been a while since I've posted anything. I'm still working on the art that I owe people, and a couple other projects on the side. In the mean time, I'm looking to commission people for some art! Specifically pixel art, preferably animated. I just gave my page a complete overkeelhaul and I'm wanting to get some pirate themed art of my fursona. Link your prices down below! I have a budget of about 1k points so I won't be able to buy the more expensive commissions.
Also let me know if you'd be willing to trade art for it! I'm open to anything at the moment, but I will be a bit more picky with trades.
