*cracks knuckles*


Like before, just comment and I'll give you a useable code.

First come, first serve. :)

(I s2g do not be the d-bag that snatches up someone else's code.
It's douchey and I will know about it, so just don't even.)


EDIT: This batch is all gone for now, but as usual I'm gonna keep posting
and giving out Toyhou.se codes until I don't get them anymore. XD

Regarding my Twitter situation

*cracks knuckles*


I've made two attempts to communicate with Twitter and get them to see through the flimsy-ass DMCA claims against my own art and selfies, but since the awful system is completely automated I wasn't able to speak to a single human being.

I learned a lot from this.

Firstly, I'm going to watermark everything I draw from here on out, even sketches and doodles. Secondly, I'm going to most likely avoid posting art to Twitter and instead post links to my art on Tumblr and DA.


These losers who are targeting me and anyone speaking up against Slugbox are really wasting their energy with this, because I've already moved on and adapted.

I have a right to use Twitter, even if someone doesn't agree with what I have to say. So I will continue to use the site, as it's a great way for me to organize my thoughts and keep track of the days for my mental health.

If any of my followers want my Twitter, ask me in a note and I'll give you a link. (I'm not hiding my new account, I'm just being discreet until these trolls get bored.)

Some lowlife scumbag really took the time out to report every single image on my Twitter and claim it as their own. EVEN MY OWN ART.

Anyways, I'm pissed off and hoping that anyone who sees my Twitter page is inactive will come to this page or my Tumblr and know what the hell is going on.

Seriously. The DMCA takedowns had all fake addresses, all fake names. But all from the same email address.

This fucker is ruining my day.

Life update / All outta Toyhou.se codes

*cracks knuckles*


Anyways, I'm giving out some Toyhouse codes for people who don't have an account yet. Just comment below, and I'll respond with a usable code for y'all.

First come, first serve. You don't even have to be following me, I just don't want these codes to go to waste before the month is up.

:new: UPD8: I'm all out of Toyhou.se codes, but I'll have a few more net week. If you're looking for one, come back to my page and inquire about it and I'll probably hook you up~

(Mini-update:

Life has been pretty uhh..IDK? Very stressful, as one would expect from me. But please bear with me! I've actually been doing a lot of soul searching and mental re-wiring in order to have a healthier relationship with the creative process and my art in general.

Because, honestly? Being BRUTALLY honest? I really, really loathe my art 78% of the time and the other 23% are mixed feelings. I want to fix that so I can finally be one of those artists who posts sketches and ideas
regularly.

I want to do that, not just so my comic can have a chance, but because I just really want to share my ideas with folks. It's just that my asshole brain gets in the way )

I saw this journal meme going around, and I need something to get in the creative mood this morning so HERE WE GO.



1. Your Fursona/Persona
Your character that represents you


Laur redesign 2k16 by Nefepants
Laur
I don't count my personas as characters as they're complete
representations of me as a person, but Laur has been my persona
since like....2011 and I love them to death.




2. Your 'Guardian Angel'
You protect yourself through them, vent through them etc, they keep you strong. 
You probably have a deep emotional connection with this character.


Untitled-2 by Nefepants
Dionysus
I made Dio when I was still in Pokemon-Amie, but he was still
dependent on an existing fandom so he didn't really become his own character until I edited out his Pokemon origins. And things really took off from there, and before I knew it he was reflecting a lot of my trauma
and childhood issues so I've gotten quite attached to him.




3. Your Sunshine!
A character that never fails to make you smile. Maybe they have bright colors.or maybe they are very cute. A character who's your own personal sun.

Pokemon Biome: Andrew by Nefepants
Andrew
Just look at him. Just look at this adorable piece of shit. He makes me so mad, he's so cute.




4. The Odd One
The odd ball character you're not sure why you have, but you treasure them deeply. Perhaps because they're just so weird?

Say hello to the space twins (Ref sheet) by Nefepants
Arani & Amo
These two ARE BY FAR THE WEIRDEST FUCKING CHARACTERS I HAVE EVER MADE IN MY ENTIRE GODDAMN LIFE AND I ADORE
THEIR WEIRD SHARED ASS. (And yes, I do count Arani and Amo as both one character and two)




5. Sentimental Value
Okay, now who has the most sentimental value? Maybe a character you received from a friend, or who you have fond memories of. Perhaps they're very old?

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised by Nefepants
Eleteya
They're one of my oldest characters, but they're very unused because they
didn't really have a place or a universe to call home until my webcomic.




6. The fancy one!
You're flashiest character! Probably the prettiest one or the one with the most fancy design.

TG: Myphris Update by Nefepants
Myphris
By FAR, Myphris is and always will be my fanciest, most well-dressed character. He would wear a suit to a pool party of he somehow
could make that happen.




7. The rare one!
'The rarity' How about a character you're so surprised you actually managed to get. You probably won't be letting go of them anytime soon!

Special PastelCandy Bejminsk CLOSED by Arleedraw
Minko
She was an adoptable character I got a year or so ago. I haven't done anything with her yet, I really love the hell out of her design and I'm
excited to getting around to drawing her and writing a backstory.




8. Weird Attachment

Untitled-2 by Nefepants
Louis
I don't have a weird attachment to Louis, I just love her and wanted to include her in this list. Also because no one else fit this category.






9. The newbie(s)

Xenoplant Doodles by Nefepants
Eleteya
One of my newest characters, but somehow the character I'm enjoying the
most refining and perfecting.



10. Favourite OC

Serif (Ref) by Nefepants
Serif
My wonderfully terrible ten-eyed alien cat abomination. The second I doodled out their design two years ago, I've been hooked. :heart:

*cracks knuckles*


As most of you guys know I've been posting more frequently on Tumblr and Twitter (hence the Twitter widget on my page *wink wonk* ), and that's mostly because I'm probably going to be approaching DA a bit differently from now on.

I won't be posting as often, but when I do I'll be posting a number of things. But for now, my focus is on my other social media pages as well as my Xenoplant website.



Just basically, if you want to see my most recent art as quickly as possible I suggest checking out my more active pages. This isn't me throwing in the towel when it comes to DeviantArt, far from it. I just have gotten more attached to other websites is all. :v

*cracks knuckles*


Heyo everyone. It's been about a million years since I've updated my DeviantArt, so I'm gonna try to say some stuff now to keep you guys updated.





First and foremost, I'm becoming WAY more active on other websites and platforms.  My Twitter is the place I'm spending more and more time at, and is the place I post WIPs and doodles and stuff I feel isn't polished enough for DeviantArt.

 
As for my art. I uhh.....I dunno. I've been feeling so down about my work. I've been trying to practice my anatomy and a lot of my basics, but somewhere I lost a lot of the confidence I had and I don't know why.

I'm still working on Xenoplant and the first few pages are 80% done, but I'm so afraid that it's just not good and I AGH.


Someone save me from my self-criticizing.

Xenoplant update, crappy flashbacks.

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 20, 2016, 6:45 AM
I got some stuff to say.

*cracks knuckles*


Hello everyone!

I'm excited to say that I'm finally working on the first chapter of Xenoplant. I'll be posting 3-4 pages at a time, and I plan on finishing the first bundle within the next couple weeks.


Other stuff. Primarily my sleep deprived thoughts about past experiences on DeviantArt. This is really just me indulging myself and venting right now, so you have no obligation to read past this point or comment.

----


I was briefly thinking about rejoining a previous DeviantArt roleplay group- I'm sure a few of my watchers are familiar with Pokemon-Amie. (I drew so much when I was a member, and lately I've been thinking about what I could do to encourage myself to draw more.)

But I reconsidered it quickly.

Without getting into detail, I had an unpleasant time. I tested this on multiple occasions when I was still a member, and no matter what I wrote the same folks would lash out at my characters. It was bewildering. They had made up their mind about me, and it affected how their characters were treating mine in the public roleplays on Twitter.

That was honestly part of the reason that encouraged me to pursue making my webcomic. So I could have a unique place for my characters to grow without the threat of being in a situation like that again.


I don't even know why I wrote this, fam.

I guess I was thinking about it because both characters from the rp group I belonged to have been completely redesigned and now play significant roles in Xenoplant. (Louis is still my DeviantArt icon, too.)

The experience has kind of put me off most rps all together, but now I can focus that writing effort into my own narrative.

I guess...that's okay? It feels like a tradeoff and sometimes I desperately miss rping, but I'm also so proud of the progress I've made so far in my story and it wouldn't have happened at all if I stayed in the group.

Hello hello, everyone. (Sorry for the huge silence, life and my health as usual is hectic. I'm trying really hard to re-motivate myself to start drawing regularly again so I can work on my graphic novel.)



I'm looking for one or two new mods/admins for my art group, :icontrans-cuties: 

A character group dedicated to trans and nonbinary ocs.


If anyone is interested in the position, please let me know by commenting on this journal or sending me a note.
(I'd prefer people with some experience with modding for a group, but I'm okay with new mods too.)


Thanks, and later for now. I hope to post some art very soon!

Possibly new character ask blog?

Journal Entry: Tue May 10, 2016, 6:26 PM
I got some stuff to say.

*cracks knuckles*


So, I've been thinking a lot these past couple of days. (I've mostly been sleeping and crying a lot, but I've also been doing a lot of thinking.)

I came to a lot of conclusions about the goals I want to achieve as a visual artist, things about myself as a person, and just in general I put a lot of pieces together so I can come out of this mental pit in a better place.

Amongst that, I considered the idea of starting an ask blog for my Xenoplant characters.

Not just so I can get used to them, what they look like, and get a feel for
the story and the plot in general. But I also feel like it would be a really fun and new experience for me, running an ask blog.

Anyways, I just wanted to run the idea by my DeviantArt family:

Should I keep on developing the comic story so I can start on that, or would you rather see a blog of the characters interacting first?


(Just in case any of you are curious, the potential ask blog as of right now is

So....essentially I'm having one of the worst months I've ever had in my life. I don't want to bother my watchers with the details, but it's related to parental abuse and my family doing nothing to step in or help me. And it's destroying my productivity.

It isn't even art block. I have lots of ideas and unfinished pieces. It's just that....I'm just so beaten down. I'm so wrapped up in my own stress and distress that I can't draw anything...

So if I end up not posting anything for a while, I'm so sorry. I'll try to post anything I can and I'll try to get over this stress and depressed thoughts.

I just wanted to let you guys know.

Thanks for reading. :heart:

*cracks knuckles*


It's so rare for me to make any post about my money situation, but now that things have gotten extremely dire, I kind of don't have any other options-

I can't really get into the specifics, but I lost one of my biggest financial support systems. Now, I genuinely have no choice but to get into a more full-time drawing schedule to keep myself afloat and fed.


--------

Here's my commission page:



My Patreon is also very active~

Starting at a $1 pledge, you can participate in bi-monthly themed art raffles. (One is ending this afternoon- the theme is raver!)


And if you just feel like donating a few dollars, here's a donation link:



I'd also appreciate it if people could try and spread the word about this journal, my commissions, etc. That'd be really amazing. I'm just trying to live over here lmao.


Anyways, thanks for sticking around and reading this. I swear, I'll get some art up soon for y'all~

Leaving PKMNation (Adoptions closed)

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 22, 2016, 9:35 AM
I got some stuff to say.

*cracks knuckles*


((~ Skip over this if you're not a member of :iconpkmnation: ~))


For a while now the group has turned into a bit of a chore for me. The clutch designs, the leveling, a lot of things in general has made my original excitement for the group slip. I had a lot of fun times, and PKMNation was the catalyst that changed my art style so significantly, but I feel like it makes sense for me to move on.


I'm honestly just too focused on my own creative projects to give the group the right attention anymore.


I still plan on drawing a lot of Pokemon fusion art, but it won't be for any specific roleplay group. (I actually might begin a Pokemon story in an an AU where crossbreeds are commonplace, but only time will tell. )


As for unfinished commissions, please let me know if you want a refund.



-------



Here's the list of adoptions. (If there's anything you want, please leave a comment or send me a note to reserve it. Pokemon not on this list are ones I intend to keep as personal characters.

First come, first serve. Make sure what you asked for hasn't been requested yet!)


Pokemon:
PKMNATION: Apep by NefepantsMale Arbok, lvl. 38
PKMNation: Sarah Connor by NefepantsFemale Deino, lvl. 61
PKMNation: Sariel by NefepantsMale Togetic/Cloyster, lvl. 38

Yep. All those things.

Firstly, hello and thank you to my new followers! I'm glad my art intrigued you. If you want something interesting to look at, go check out the concept art for my comic book here~


Secondly, I don't believe in new year's resolutions. Not in the "I'm going to try really hard to change my life in a way that's beneficial until I lose motivation" way.

More like in the way that's an unshakable affirmation. I am going to work on my art more. I am going to be less critical about my work, even if it's a silly and messy sketch. I am going to learn how to enjoy drawing again without it frustrating me.


I've also decided to be more socially active in the art community. Reach out and collaborate with people, draw giftart, work on the pieces I owe others, push myself out of my comfort zone.



2016 is really going to be my big art year.

In your last years of life you were slow and sluggish. I'd yell at you and call you names when the rainbow wheel of death showed up on your face. And my applications crashed constantly.

But dammit, you were good to me.

Rest in peace, sweet computer. May my next one be a little more functional. (And hey, at least I had the sense to stash the sketches I've been working on recently.)


ANYWAYS this means I won't really be able to submit anything for a while. A week at max, but I'll try to get a new computer and get my software up and running on it.

We'll see.

Art block is just insecurity.

*cracks knuckles*


At least for me.

My art block lately has been so cruel, and I recently realized that it may be because I'm afraid that if I finish art I won't be satisfied with it.

I'll finish it and I'll be disappointed that I couldn't do more with the piece.

And I'm very gradually getting better regardless, but I feel like my work could really be good if I wasn't so afraid of failure.

Failure is just a part of the artistic process. I need to keep reminding myself, otherwise I'll just be standing still.

Anyways with this recent realization, I hope to use my energy to produce better art.

If you didn't know already, an Illinois woman named Sandra Bland was pulled over in Texas for a traffic violation, and two days later she was found hung in her jail cell.

I'm skipping over the details because it's very graphic and upsetting and there's evidence of foul play on the side of law enforcement, but I'm mostly writing this journal to say

that I'm tired.

I'm depressed.

I'm despondent because the way black people are treated in this country, anyone can kill them with the right excuse.

I fear that my mother will be next, because she drives a car and tends to be on the cantankerous side because of her old age.


So anyways, I have no mental or emotional energy to draw. The reality of the country I live in dawned on me, and I'm frankly too upset and terrified to even draw a single line.
