commissions are closed until after animaga and I have a waitlist atm with a few ppl keen, but I'll need to fund NEONfur asap,, since I kinda... found out last min I was accepted ^^; so will probs open for more comms too in near future

anyway thank you all for your support, will be trying to be more active on DA now things ahve died down a little!!!
ive been very absent and im sorry! i havent been able to update my comic here, please read it on webtoons >

ill be back to updating my art on here properly and being more active afer july 13, i have a winter intensive so havent had any time ;_; sorry everyone

I got a nother button amchine, laughs ,,,,

SOOO I have coms open, including button commissions like so;
Gaia HCFC Button by meroaw
These are $20 + $5 international shipping (soz). + $3 for aus. Australia sucks, I'm so sorry. You get 2 copies of the button. They are large, 44mm buttons too!
Happy to do a deal if you order more than one design for buttons - the extra design is only $15.

I'm doing unlimited orders for HCFC so let me know if you are going, you get sweet deals if you wanna order badges etc!


Can't order a commission but want to support me? Buy me a ko-fi! you get a sweeet headshot sketch!

ALSO a patreon for Dragon Laska is coming soon, once I'm finished with exams.

Thank you everyone!
hi , sorry for absence but i had final assessments for uni to do and lots of commissions so im like !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But i just have 2 exams left and no classes so im super, duepr relaxed. Sorting out my schedule and getting my furdu commissions as well as comic work out of the way is the priority!!

I'll be updating da with more comic pages, more cool art, and got lots of awesome stuff on the horizon. Gonna be fixing up my uploads TOMORROW woooo

I'll be also prepping for Harbour City Fur Con and Animaga too - then after those are done, I'll be opening an online store. I am very sorry in advance but international shipping will sting - I'm sorry I wish I could charge cheap shipping but I cannot, Australia has terribly expensive postage to get stuff out of here and into here ;___;
wow wow wow!! i had such an INCREDIBLE time at furdu!!!!
I will defs be back next year!!

i cannot, cannot believe the reception to my art. I'm blown away by the kindness of the attendees, and everyone who came around and got something off me,
I've decided it is time now to make art my part time job because of how well i went at furdu, i exceeded my goal twice ha!! im so happy!! Dragon Laska and commissions will hopefully support me during my studies!
We will set up a patreon for dragon laska eventually too!!
gonna be working hard, ill be replying to comments soon and clearing out my messages, sorry for late responses ;_;

7. If you could be any movie character, who would it be?

Uhh HH I DK,, one where i am a cool dragon???

8. What is your luck number?


9. Do you prefer reading books or writing them?

11. Favorite TV show?

Lok/atla, lots of animes like FMA, my hero academia, etc

12. Favorite book of all time? Hehehehehe

The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman.
I haven't opened for requests in.. years...

I like to do warm ups before drawing, often of my own characters or of other things !
BUT I wouldn't mind a thread of ideas. I might not draw your request so keep that in mind. Just need some inspiration.

SO What I want is,
canon character requests like:
"I would like to see you do a full body picture of Glory!"
"Can you draw Thorn and Sunny together?"
etc etc etc

Also I haven't read past 'The Brightest Night' as I haven't had any extra income to order the next parts! Feel free to request characters from the other books ill get around to it, , i know of them !
hi, im in con crunch mode and commission c runching and getting webcomic stuff ready!! lots going on !! im a bit overwhelmed but ill get through it!!

Got tagged for some questions ;3;
Questions from NaridTheNighthunter 

1. If you could visit one place on Earth, where would it be?

Is everywhere too cheesy? I honestly adore travel and i want to see more of the world every year.

2. Favourite film/tv series?
Thats a hard one. I adore the ATLA/LOK series greatly, and i absolutely love studio ghibli movies!

3. Why did you join DA?
because i liked drawing dragons and lots of people on here draw dragons!

4. Which artist inspires you the most?

my friends ;-; peeople i watch on da... a lot of art inspires me , i get pretty overwhelmed by it at times

5. Favourite piece of art you've done recently?

theres a particular panel i did for dragon laska i ADORE, which you will all see soon , but otherwise, i really like this!
  Power Of Fire by meroaw

6. Which song/piece of music do you ABSOLUTELY hate?

i dont really hate any music, tbh, i can listen to anything !!

7. What is the air velocity of an unladen swallow?


8. Biggest pet peeve?
mmm i have a lot. conspiracies theories that harm people directly really get to me (eg vaccines), you are hurting other people by spreading lies, and that is pretty horrible to do, in my opinion. also the whole 'fiction doesn't affect reality' thing ppl spew out a lot. Ficition DOES affect reality, and how people see the world, it inspires them, influences them, etc etc.

9. Favourite art topic (Mountains, people, mythical creatures, etc.)?

>3> Dragons,,

10. Introvert/Ambivert/Extrovert?
if i were to put a label on myself, it would be extrovert. which kinda doesnt really work with my attention issues as i lose track of conversations a lot, whoops,
oh god im sorry for lack of updates ive had, a LOT GOING ON!!

So i got a temp, maybe PROPER job going on ! Working sales at conventions selling random products. Its something different to what I planned for part time job but it works surprisingly well and HOPEFULLY... looking at more employment with the company.

I am tabling at THREE conventions in the next few months w@ Homecooked Comics in Melbourne, Furdu (furry convention) on the Gold Coast, and Harbour City Fur Con in Sydney. Let me know if you are groing to these and Please say hello to me!! I love meeting new friends!!

A third winner will recieve a sketch.... and the third winner is...

my welfare payments got cut by 20% so im offering 20% off gift commissions, makes sense yeah? Anyway I already live under the poverty line and 20% is massive and covers my food and transport costs for the week, and Im having a lot of trouble finding a new job to try and get some savings or to help with this cut. Sorry to be blunt but I feel I gotta be honest.

Prices are here;…

Something cool n cheap is a speed paint, $20 for one like this!
