Where the heck has the time gone?!

Where the heck has the time gone?!

Good lord, I've been trying to get to new art for 2 days now! I've been doing all these side things the past couple days I figured would maybe take a few hours, but they have taken up huge chucks of my day. Friday I wanted to get all my Mermay prints and sticker up in my Etsy shop. So I started doing the printing, and of course I was having issues with my sticker cutter not cutting things right so that was a half a day spent on that. Saturday after I finished off printing and cutting stickers, I had to take photos and edit everything to put onto Etsy. Doing 3 different Etsy entries... Only managed to do 1 entry Shameless self promotion https://www.etsy.com/listing/813525810/mermaids-print-sticker-collection-2020?ref=shop_home_feat_3 Then today I planned to finish the 2 Etsy entries, work on editing my next Neonmob series AND getting to my next Gods & Monsters piece. So worked on the Neonmob thing and that took way longer than I expected, only got about half way done. Haven't

Current Art Schedule/Plan

Current Art Schedule/Plan

Current Art Schedule/Plan I have quite a bit on my plate that still needs to be done. I took a small break from the Gods & Monsters pieces I owe as I started feeling a little burnt out and I didn't want to half ass them. I focused more on Mermay as a way to get some creative juices flowing and do some more free-form monster/creature designs. But I will be right back to finishing up last months Gods & Monsters starting the first week of June. I'm sorry for those still waiting on your character designs, but I will do my best to make them special. With 7 more pieces being due for G&M, that should leave me with some time to take on a few commission slots for the rest of June. May: Finish Mermay June: Finish Current Batch of Gods & Monsters / Commissions July: Gods & Monsters Batch 3

Just a Thank You in tough times

Just a Thank You in tough times

Hello everyone! Mythka here hoping all of you are safe, healthy and not too stressed out during these freaking crazy times. I myself am an introvert for the most part and seldom go out unless I need to take Etsy order to the post-office or go down to the store. So my day to day working on art hasn't really been too effected. What I have seen though is so much more interaction on my artwork and that makes me so happy. All your comments all your likes and favorites have made me feel so good. (Yes I read every single one) I wanted to say hello to all my new followers and all those who seem to really be enjoying my Gods & Monsters series. As

Wide Open Spaces Field Assignment

Wide Open Spaces Field Assignment

Wide Open Spaces: Field Assignment Due February 15th: Saddle up, as they say because this week I need you to investigate a mysterious cryptid that roams the vast grasslands. Long ago legends spoke of a furry beast with fierce teeth and sporting multiple tails. It was said to bring rain and good fortune to those who crossed it's path. We thought this creature to simply be just that, a legend, but recent reports from a group of cattle folk have convinced us that this creature may be real and quite possibly making a comeback. Please find out more about this long lost creature. Breakdown: Biome: Grassland Animal Type: Mammal Traits: Teeth, Fur, multiple tails (2 or more) Reward: 1 Research Point

The Vapors of the Mind ~ Field Assignment

The Vapors of the Mind ~ Field Assignment

The Vapors of the Mind ~ Field Assignment Due: Friday February 7th Briefing: Prepare your boots and thermal underpants. This weeks assignment is sending you to the arctic. This perilous local is full of mysteries, mostly because sane people prefer weather that's not 50 below zero, but you love a challenge! Our mysterious quarry is a legend said to change it's form and cloud the mind with vapors. Not so long ago people believed miladies of body and mind were caused by such vapors and that fresh air would cure many ills. Discover this beast that has been spotted on the arctic shores. I can't tell you much as everyone's been seeing something different, just that the creature only appears in heavy fog and it's thought this fog can drive one mad. Breakdown: Biome: Arctic Animal Type: Wild Card (any or unknown) Traits: Hooves, mist or vapor and Stone Reward: 1 Research Point

Field Assignment: Mysterious Package

Field Assignment: Mysterious Package

Mysterious Package Field Assignment Due: Friday January 24th Briefing: Researchers, I have an odd request today from a research team out in one of our father afield outposts. To be honest, I'm not sure what to make of it. A somewhat heavily damaged crate arrived with a handful of items and a partially chewed on note. Really the postman needs to be more careful with deliveries... is that blood... anyway. The note as far as I can tell is from one of our interns and it simply reads "out of options, send assistance." Included in the box was an unusual fin, a rather large antler and a handful of feathers. It must be samples from whatever new beast the research team is investigating. Go help them and find out what sort of creature they are dealing with. Breakdown: Biome: Desert Animal Type: Wild Card (any or unknown) Traits: Fins, Antlers and Feathers Reward: 1 Research Point

A Big Thing Update ~ Hello 2020

A Big Thing Update ~ Hello 2020

As some of you may recall I struggled most of 2019 with trying to find a vendor to make my shirts. Most of the products I received were not up to my quality standards. After much trial and error I am finally ready to announce that I can make my own in house shirts from my office. I'm using a heat transfer method and the results have turned out quite nice. Far better than most of the garbage big name companies were sending me. I'm really happy with how these have turned out and I now have these 4 designs up in my Etsy store for purchase. With producing these myself as well I was able to bring the costs down a bit too. I can only do white shirt

Heroes and Villains - Final Round

Heroes and Villains - Final Round

Hello Guys and Happy almost Thanksgiving to all my US watchers :heart: The year is drawing to a close and it's almost time to wrap up my 2019 Heroes & Villains project for this year. I'm going to do a final round of H&V commissions to close out the book sometime in December. This will give anyone who still wants an entry in the book a chance to do so. So far were looking at 169+Pages. I will also be forgoing a Kickstarter and just do preorders for the book instead. I'm going to do a small run of hardcover books and some goodies to those who do a preorder. Because I can't buy huge quantities the books will be $50 each + shipping. It

COPPA The YouTube Ruling Add Your Voice

COPPA The YouTube Ruling Add Your Voice

So yes there is a place you can send a polite and thoughtful message to the FTC to help them better understand, this ruling needs more work. This was what I sent them today. I'm a small fish in a vast ocean, but I do hope the FTC listens and understand they aren't punishing YouTube, just small creators. If you would like to add your voice to the conversation, click the link and share with the FTC your thoughts. Be polite, don't go on an angry twitter rant. That's not how change is enacted. https://www.regulations.gov/comment?D=FTC-2019-0054-0001 This is what I sent this morning. I'm just me these were my random thoughts. Maybe they will help. Good afternoon. As a content creator, I spend the good majority of my time creating fantasy art. This according to guidelines is considered "child appealing". I don't direct my content towards children, but I try to make a PG environment where anyone can view my content, without fear of inappropriate messages. I never thought that my
