BloggingI've decided it's simply too much work to try and mimic the blog posts I already write and post them here at DeviantArt. I'll keep putting new art and sketches up here but if you want the behind the scenes look at some of the pieces and some information on each of them you can check out my blog HERE.
OilCan Drive Pre-ConventionThe sixteen week crazy schedule I gave myself to get all of the things I ever wished I had done for OilCan Drive is finally over! And, I have to say, I did pretty well. Some things had to be cut or pared down simply because I didn't have the time but, for the most part, I think I did really well.
Sixteen weeks ago, around the end of January, I knew I'd have a table at the second Denver Comic Con. At the time I was doing around a page a week of OilCan Drive and I had about twenty pages left to go to get the book done. With sixteen weeks left I knew I'd have to step it up and, for at least a few weeks, I'd have to complete multiple pages. That kind of made me nervous. But, once I accepted it, I went even further. I made a list of all the OilCan Drive things I wish I could bring to a comic book convention. It included not only the comic book but a CD of music, postcards, trading cards, banners, t-shirts, and stickers.
And then I wrote out a schedule to make all of those things possible.
Apologies once again for letting so many days go by between posts. But, you know I've been busy working on all kinds of cool stuff so I hope you forgive me.
The inks have been laid down on the back cover illustration I showed off last week and it's already been scanned into the computer and toned for final printing.
There has been so much stuff that has been flying off my art table these last sixteen weeks that it's been really hard to keep up and show off everything that I've been working on. But, here is a piece I did a few weeks ago for the cover of the first ever OilCan Drive EP album.
Breaking The BorderOilCan Drive's first ever EP album has just been finished and sent out to Discmaker's for production. It will be two weeks before we have CDs in hand but, for now, you can check out this link to see a 3D preview of what the album will look like. It's really cool and I hope you'll all enjoy it!
Have a great one!
Week Fifteen Begins
Well, this is it, the final stretch. When I wrote out this crazy schedule I've been on back in January it seemed to make sense. I knew it would be thought but I figured if I could stick to the schedule I'd be okay.
I am now on the fifteenth of sixteen weeks I've given myself to get all of the OilCan Drive project done. I'm happy to say that almost all of the merchandise has been completed and is still either out at the printers or in my hands.
The album has been recorded and I'm in the middle of doing the final mixes now. I need to finish the songs up, get them mixed and mastered, and get all the art done for the packaging this week. Unfortunately one of the songs had to fall by the wayside since the deadline is so tight. So, while I did record all the parts for the cover song of The Outfie
OilCan Drive, A Rock and Roll Love Story
I meant to post this on Saturday. I wanted to share with the everyone that all of the old OilCan Drive art and comics had been shown on the OilCan Drive web comic site and it was now time for some new art and stories. It felt like an accomplishment that I had run the site for a full year and this "coming soon" piece of art would mark the next chapter in showing my favorite cartoon band off to the world.
But, then the weekend happened.
Everything was ready for the roll out on Friday. Wednesday marked the last day of pages that I had in the archive and Friday would show this new piece. I uploaded the piece and was working a bit on the site on Thursday night when, all of a sudden, I lost my connection to the site. I reboote
New commission journal OPENOPEN
So a bit time ago, I asked in a poll what people would be interested in and listed price for each option. And it seems like almost all of the options got votes. So what better than to just open everything at once? = v =

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy
How to link deviants, deviations, or websites!I am using deviant arts own help topic found here http://help.deviantart.com/81/. I will be expanding upon what they have with examples, to make it easier to understand. Just so you know I am using their outline and explanation, if you would like to know which parts were mine and which are theirs just go to the site above
How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?
There are a few formats you can use, either a link of the users name, displaying the members avatar, or by linking with a personal description.
:iconusername: will display the member's or group's avatar as a link to their page. Remember, however, that the limit for posting blocks of avatars is sixty four per post, and this will not work in signatures.
This seems easy enough, here I will use my own name. :iconamarantheans: will give you :iconamarantheans:

Commission ListFirst of all, the best way to commission me is via sending me a note. Just say what you want and keep it short at first, because in the end matters mostly how your character looks (so add the Ref Sheet too) and what kind of drawing you want, details can come later. Since who knows if I will even accept your Commission.
What I am willing to draw: Canines, the rest you better ask but mostly is the reason that I am not good in drawing other stuff, though asking never hurts.
I live in Europe, so it is EURO, so the prices here will stand in € and all happens via Paypal. If you want to pay in USD, you probably have to pay more.
It would be best if you send me the money, works the easiest for me with paypal. I always demand full payment before, I can assure you though that I am a fast worker and will send you wips if you wish it. BTW, make sure to select: no delivery address needed. Update: I prefer invoices now.
I really do
