!!!!!!!!!!! lil sloppy but.. please check it out!
i'm moving across the country to the boston area in less than two weeks and any bit of money to put away will help me out!
alright not cool universetwo days til my birthday and a week until a scheduled trip to california then to texas to see my family, and there are some financial issues looming over what is supposed to be a fun and relaxing weekend. i was already a little tight for cash myself as usual, but things are looking a lot tighter than expected for both me and my girlfriend suddenly and i would like us to not have to worry so much while we’re out there
long story short, my gf has had plenty in her savings to keep us comfy for should anything happen, but yesterday the entire steering assembly on her car went kaput which equals pretty much her entire savings to get it fully replaced. her sister has offered to help her out with a loan, but most of her savings are gonna be pretty much owed at this point cutting way back on our security for the trip and in general for a while. we're almost guaranteed transportation costs for a while since the car is out of commission until they replace the steering. my birthday wish is

yesterday i learned.....that i can (picarto) stream or record speedpaints! from either computer!
i knew my laptop had the power, but it's prone to crashing several times a day. but i was able to make OBS work ok wimpy desktop pc with just a tiny bit of fiddling with settings, meaning i can stream using the cintiq. i imagine if i ever do so i'll use my laptop on the side to keep up with chat, because the other computer is not the best multitasker and is only single-display and i don't want to sacrifice screen space or pull up a chat mid-draw
still pretty neat info! i think knowing me i would he more likely to aim for recording speedpaints, but knowing i CAN stream is good to mentally prepare myself for the possibility. EMPOWERING!
nudges yall in the direction of my FAi been back there for a little while and dont think i announced it here!
whoever has furaffinity, you can watch me there too if you like
for your furry needs
at times, some commissions and adoptables i offer are exclusive to there (as there are also ones that are exclusive to here as well). if you're into furry/anthro and you have been looking to commission or adopt from me, you may consider following me there too!
she BIGaaahhh so we finally got to put the finishing touches on our art desk setup today. our (HUGE?) cintiq arrived wednesday, and the tower pc i ordered specifically for it arrived yesterday. after making it more like home and setting up our art programs last night, we finally have a computer that is a dedicated art machine and our main workstation, that isn't our personal laptops full of distractions. just our necessary art programs installed and an external hard drive plugged in to keep all our art backed up in one safe place. it feels really, REALLY nice !!
i can't really express how much of a relief it is to have our new workstation so easily accessible, too. for example, when we wanted to draw before, we would have to carry our laptop(s) to our desk, fiddle around behind the desk to plug it in so it doesn't die in 20 minutes, and get our previous tablet all plugged in and comfortable. which in theory isn't too bad and isn't much work, right? but it becomes a huge obstacle when you're i
shoulders-up commissions (closed!)accepting a few of these p clean colored sketches for $25! i was originally gonna be taking commissions to slowly build up to help buy a tablet, but suddenly my gf bought it all at once, so now i need money to pay my gf back half (or buy all the groceries until i break even etc etc)
so due to changed purposes, ignore the caption thing on the upper right my examples sheet (tho i definitely still accept tips!)
-payments are accepted through paypal invoices only
-i won't start your slot until the invoice is paid upfront. slots left unpaid won't be held for long (a day) before opening back up, in which case you'll have to try again next time!
-single character per image, per slot
-you can grab up to two slots at a time for yourself
-visual reference, and (optional) a couple words to sum up their personality best is all i will need! for visual, if you have a full ref sheet that would be perfect! if
rubs my gay little hands togetheri found a SWEET deal on a barely used and practically brand new cintiq 22hd and showed my gf..
and we WENT FOR IT. she bought it right away with money she's been saving for the day we'd either have enough or find a good deal. we didn't know it would be so soon?
im cryin tho dreams do come true
we're gonna keep our artisul d13 installed on both our laptops for more casual use/when the other person is drawing with the Big Boy, and have the cintiq up on our new desk (WHICH we found on the side of the road for free this past weekend and is in great shape) with another computer. omg we were just happy to finally have a drawing desk at all, and now we'll have our dream tablet sitting on it, SO SOON
also lemme just take the opportunity while i'm on the subject to say one more time, that i still super recommend the artisul d13 to folks who want an hd interactive display that's not too big, not too pricy compared to its wacom counterparts, and doesn't feel cheap or flimsy. well it's not "cheap"
fursona talktfw you gotta redesign your fursona, again
i haven't made any MAJOR changes to scout's design in a while, just tweaks here and there. they are one of my characters who has stayed very recognizable for a few years now despite the tweaks, but now i'm considering putting them through a species change. we'll see where that goes. i haven't made a proper ref for scout since early 2014 soooo yea i guess scout is overdue for at least a little more work
probably going to keep some of their more iconic features, like palette and eyes since i can't really part with that and call them the same character and i feel personally connected to that set of colors. but i want to pull scout back down to earth and have them be something less vague than 'alien canid body with a slime living in its head' lol. i have my personal battles with identity to thank for that aspect of scout's character, and while i don't DISLIKE it and it has been a fun and silly concept making light of something mor
does anyone here have experience with theyetee??for selling nerdy designs?
i see a lot of great stuff on there that makes me inspired to design tshirts and stickers and the like, but if it is a different experience than other online shops i'd like to know
i was recommended submitting to teefury which i'm sure gets a little more traffic than theyetee, but TF's $1 profit is a little low. and i would like to sell more than just tshirts!
what i REALLY want to do is print off my own stickers and charms and the like and send them out from an online shop all my own, but at the moment i really don't have the money or equipment for any of that. so i'm resorting to the help of other hosts, for now
if y'all have any recommendations let me know!
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
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

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!

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
