Journal Entry: Sun Jul 8, 2018, 12:48 PM



Ugh... this F'in' tablet can be such a pain!

I am not going to be able to stream again today. I will try tomorrow.

As soon as I can afford a new tablet, I will have to get one XP

Okay, so noticed my notes jumped up, and checked, and had some deviations (speed paints) removed, due to characters being 'under 18'.

I have re-posted them on Patreon (free to view) if you are interested in finding them again.
They were sexy poses, but seems TOO sexy for DA. so I will have to be more careful again.

Terrible time...

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 6, 2018, 4:46 PM



Hey guys, I feel I need to apologize to people who are waiting on commissions, and requests.
The last month has been really difficult for me. I have barely been able to find time to do anything, and I am letting a lot of people down. I have tried to keep some semblance of a schedule, but catching up has gotten harder and harder.

Why? nothing what you would consider serious, but I have had a lot of family distractions, which has left me unable to work, and the more I couldn't work, the more I tried to catch up, and the more I tried, the more things got pushed back, or to the side.

It's even been my worst financial month because i simply have had NO time to do commissions, or reply to notes and e-mails of clients wanting to know where their stuff is, or if i have time to do them. XP

Doing this alone too doesn't help, since i have no one to keep up on my messages for me, or keep me organized during this time.

I know most of you will understand, and I thank you, but i still feel I should apologise.
I want to get back to working to a schedule, and working on a project I am really excited about doing, as well as other things.

Hopefully, with the current NHC chapter now done, I have a week, at least to try and get back to a schedule before working on the next, and get some commissions and requests done.


thanks for listening to my explanation, and i hope you have a good weekend.

so until next time and always NHFTW!

Visit to the printers...

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 22, 2018, 8:09 AM



So, I went to MCM ComicCon Birmingham last week, as some may recall from my Twitter, and tbh, I felt like maybe it's time I did an artists table, and make some prints.

So, I e-mailed around, and today I went to a local printers to talk about doing up some prints, and i must say, prices are good (though I have little experience in dealing with printers).

I plan on doing some colour prints, and even printing out some booklet comics (like the NHC 10th Anniversary edition, with a few extra pieces of artwork) as well as small cards of artwork.

Now the purpose is for an upcoming comic con in November (I still need details, and decide whether i will do it) but I could sell them online too.

What I want to hear is opinions on what people would like to see, or what would be of interest for selling at conventions as well as online.

And for those who have more knowledge of artist alley trades, the kind of price ranges people sell artwork for.

Just a lot of research for me concerning this, all while I make art ^^


Anyway, back to work for me! Hope everyone is doing well :)

Until next time and always NHFTW!

Removal

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 27, 2018, 4:05 AM



Well, so that comic went down well... if you don't now what I mean, then I am talking about 'it's so...Logical?!'

The title itself was meant to infer that what you were about to read was stupid, and not to be taken seriously.

I came up with the concept of the characters who are idiots but think the stupidest things said are actually logical, they were meant to characterize the kind of people you often refer to as 'Oh, I know that kind of guy', you know the kind of person who just acts, or says silly things sometimes without actually thinking about it.

That's who these characters were meant to be parodying. 

Unfortunately in less than a day, despite many got the joke, it did seem I had failed in getting across these points, as many seemed to say 'you don't know what you are talking about' and such, even one said that because I was british, and showed no knowledge or interest in guns before, I have no right, or knowledge of this topic, which is very sad, since it only proved they knew nothing themselves.

To clarify, my family, because of my father, have been around guns, supported guns, shot guns, and in general have learned to appreciate guns, not only for the fun you can have, but respect the dangers that they pose. I enjoy guns, and have my own opinions, and experiences with them, which were not expressed in the comic, which I repeat... WAS A PARODY.

anyway, as such, I have removed the comic from DA, not because of hate, I appreciated all the critiques, and valued your opinions, even the ones who assumed the wrong things, but because of the fact that this was a 'proof of concept comic' which i stated in the description of it, was just an idea.
The reason I removed it was so that I can work on altering the concept so that it is more understood, and if I restart it, then there won't be a previous version that would taint any future versions of it.

I won't apologise for the comic, I found it funny for what it was, a sarcastic look at some of the stupid things people say and think, for what it was. But the failing in expressing the characters, and the point of the joke was my failing as a writer/artist, and the critique will help me develop it further, if i so choose to.


Anyway, thanks for reading.

I really wanna focus on finishing my contest comic, i have all the text to do, and the cover.
So i am delaying the sunday stream until either tomorrow night, or tuesday. Which means no topic tuesday if I stream that day.

I will also be starting the christmas requests this week too, on top of resuming my list of requests and commissions.

anyway, i better get back to it, and get it done :)

Some stuff on hold!

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 29, 2017, 5:44 PM



Hi everyone, as some of you may know/recall, I am working on a contest comic. Unfortunately, due to high demands on my time, I haven't made the progress I would have liked.

Though I am half way through inking the pages, I stil have a lot more work to do, and only the rest of december to do it in.

As such, I really want to put more time in to it, and thus, I have decided to put some things on hold, such as commissions, requests, and slowing on NHC etc.

Its been hard to balance the contest comic and so much, and I really wanna take a couple of weeks to try and get the remaining 26 pages done. It is a heavy load, and if I can get one page done a day, it would take me til after christmas to finish, so I wanna get at least TWO pages done a day, minimum, for a while, though I will work on other things if I need a 'change'.

I am sorry to all of those who are awaiting Commissions and requests, but I feel that this contest will be good for me to enter, and I do not wish to miss out on it, whether I win or not.

I appreciate your understanding, and will try to still do a sunday stream, but Topic Tuesday is on hold until I feel I have done enough for the comic.

Hopefuly this will last no more than 2 - 3 weeks, and I will try to get NHC, and Minisodes done, if and when I find the time.

Thank you all, you're awesome as always :)

So until next time and always, NHFTW!

NHC Week off

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 21, 2017, 2:44 PM



Hey all, sorry, but due to a bad weekend, and feeling a little out of it, I have decided to have a week off from NHC.
I'm gonna focus on some random stuff, as well as commissions, and the contest comic (at least until friday where I will start drawing NHC) and play some games too for a change XD

Maybe one day I'll add 'game play' to my youtube repertoire XD have an excuse to play more XD
But, that something else to work on, and spend money on getting equipment. So for now, sticking to drawing vids XD

if anyone has any advice/tips on how to get started cheaply in game recording, then feel free to leave a comment.

anyway, I have stuff to do, editing Topic tuesday atm for my Youtube channel, and I seriously need some topic suggestions XD

until then and always NHFTW!! *drives off in the batmobile, but crashes in to the doors* Damn it... forget to press the button... batman is so gonna kill me!!

TeamKP - Artists needed

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 18, 2017, 5:08 PM



Hey guys, is anyone interested in doing some art work for TeamKP?
DOn't know who that is, we are the crew working on projects for Pony reviewer iLoveKimPossibleALot.

What do we need?
Essentially, if you like making ponies, backgrounds, and various other art related stuff, and want to work on projects for youtube, then send some references of your work.

Never drawn ponies? Well, that might be fine, as long as you are willing to, or at the least prefer making backgrounds.

Just say in a comment what you would like to do:

Experience in Photoshop and Illustrator a big plus, but we have members willing to give advice on using them.

Also, you will need to have Discord for project meetings, as well as having chats with the rest of the crew (myself included ;) )

thank you for your time everyone :)

Contest Entry

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 4, 2017, 9:05 AM



Okay, so, if you don't follow my twitter, or read my feed on my DA front page (click my name and you go to my gallery front page) you may not know that I intend to post an entry (maybe more, up to a max 5 in rules) to the Shonen Jump Manga contest.
I hope to give it my best quality shot. Last time, I entered Dark Tome, with no success, so I am trying something different, and hopefully better :)

I will posting updates, in text, on Patreon, so follow me there, or just check it out www.patreon.com/themattcave if you haven't already been to my patreon. I may post image previews for the higher range of patreon subscribers, but when the comic is finished, it will be posted on Medibang, medibang.com/author/572336 due to contest rules (and the fact they are hosting it XD)
I will post a link to see it, if I can.

So wish me luck :)

Sunday stream @ 9pmUK (OFFLINE)

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 2, 2017, 12:34 PM



Some bad news... I don't know why, but tablet is literally not bringing up the screen, but I can use it as a tablet still, I just have to look at another screen.
But it's a lot more focus consuming using my hand-eye co-ordination (this was why I upgraded to a tablet monitor in the first place XD) BUT, that also means II'm working on one, smaller, monitor for now.
So, until further notice, I am suspending the livestream and the speed Paints, until I feel I can work with what I have, or get a new monitor, for now, I will be focusing on making money through commissions, and working personal projects.

For those on the list I am sorry they won't get done just yet, but I may do them on the side if i need a change of pace XD

Now... I say all this, but who knows if I may do the odd Mini stream here and there if I can get the tablet to work properly, but I don't want to keep promising I will do something only for tech issues to make me a liar XP. But we will see. Money is priority for now until I can get my monitor working properly again.

Anyway, it shouldn't stop me from posting things, and with no Youtube stuff to really do, it should mean I can focus on artwork more ^^ so, silver lining, lol. SO let's all hope for money and art! XD

Ideas ideas ideas

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 14, 2017, 8:36 AM



My biggest problem in life isn't the lack of time to do all I want, but the problem of too many ideas! I have TONS of ideas for comics, animations, movies, tv series, books, etc fan-based and original. I store them as written briefs, notes, quick sketches, and thoughts and there are piles.

Once more today I have been inspired for crossover fan fiction. If you know of the series 'Bible Black' a very well known hentai game and animated 'series' heavy on sex and magic, you may understand more.

THe Idea came when seeing this  Hentai Co-Stars: Naruto's Bible Black/Disclipline? by Raptorcloak a Naruto Harem crossover with the girls of Bible black and Discipline. My idea though is base in the naruto world, and called Jutsu Black.

It will have inspiration from Bible Black, but obviously different, and only feature Naruto characters.

Now, I am not saying I will make this, yet, or at all, just that this kinda stuff happens, and thought I would expalin a bit about myself, and that the randomest of ideas can come to me at any time, and builds up a stack of ideas already present.


ANyway, this was short, but hopefully you enjoyed the short insight XD
