Progress so Far
First off, thank you guys so much, you are awesome as always!
I'm still getting supportive, encouraging messages from the last update about life outside of FE. Thanks for sharing your struggle and success stories, how much FE means to you, and your kind words. Been spending the past month seriously looking into what it would take to for art to be a full-time job in my life. Again, I'm hesitant to share about my personal life, (especially finances,) but I'm not the only one who wants to make a living doing what they love - and I hope sharing my experience will help others working towards the same goal.

The first thing Husband and I did, as basic as it sounds, is review our monthly budget. Regardless of where the money came from, we needed to know the bare minimum I had to bring in so we could cover our monthly bills. The total came to be three times what my art income currently is.
Next step was to figure out how much time I had to increase the art income to meet our budget. (In this

Mysteries and Scandals-Our Gang
Broadcast in the 1990s on the E! Entertainment Television channel.  The inspiration for the Get Along Gang concept.
   Some people didn't care for host AJ Benza's unsentimental and occasional mocking narration but I thought he did well to present a respectful tone to the profiled stars' entertainment accomplishments without being too syrupy or condoning the behavior that led to the stars' personal and professional downfalls. 
The history and the dark side and tragic lives of some of the cast members from Hal Roach's "Our Gang"/"Little Rascals".  TV-PG for language and thematic material.

Bunny And Bugs

Bachelor
There's a reason Bugs Bunny has been a bachelor all these years.  If he's clever enough to outwit his many adversaries, he's likely smart enough to "test drive" but never "buy."  Does any fun-loving trickster really want a back-seat driver in his life?  Thought not.  My usual: mechanical pencil on office bond, inked with a Pilot V5 and scanned in greyscale at 300 dpi.  Line cleaning and coloring with Microsoft Paint version 6.

All the good stuff: cute bunny, half-naked girl, America and firearms.  All at once.  Happy Twenty-nineteen, peoples.

Governor Hopps
Disney in-house produced Zootopia.  They've also absorbed Lucasfilm Limited and the Star Wars universe.  Technically, both are "house" properties now.

Sweet Judy Hopps, an officer of The Empire?  Naw, can't be.  But, recall her exchange with Dawn Bellwether: "So that's it?  Prey fears predator, and you stay in power?"  "Yeah, pretty much."  "It won't work!" "Fear always works."  And Dawn is right, y'know.  Every dictator we've had, and we've had plenty, runs on terrorizing the populace.  So, why does Judy say Dawn's plan won't work?  Too rinky-dink.  One-at-a-time darting isn't going to instill a civil rift big enough to be self-sustaining.  Dawn needs more muscle to make that happen.  Enter the Empire, who have plenty of muscle to exert their sway.  If Judy sells out Zootopia to the Empire, they'll make her Regional Governor, and keep the obedient sheep in line.  As for the predators, those non-conformist renegades?  Well, nobody does genocide better than Imperials, am I right?  Can't you just imagine Nick's "Oh, crap" moment when Governor Hopps informs a squad of troopers that foxes can't be trusted.  Cue The Imperial March.  Updated with background on Sunday 13 January 2019.

Another 15th of November, the debut anniversary of Space Jam and the first appearance of Lola Bunny.  Am I fixated on this character?  Perhaps.  Is that wrong?  Well, Warner Brothers Media hasn't issued a Cease And Desist Order, so it can't be all that wrong.  Many decry Lola Bunny as a cypher and a Mary Sue, that has no place among the Looney Tunes.  The revised version seen in The Looney Tunes Show is definitely much loonier, more in keeping with the origins of the franchise's stalwarts.  Nonetheless, I'm mindful that the debut of Lola in Space Jam had to be tempered, because the whole reason for this film in the first place was to wave the mighty Michael Jordan in Disney's face.  It would be counterproductive to debut a new character that outshines their expensive star.

Of course, some would say that I shouldn't be doing these homages, that I ought to concentrate on my own creations.  Well, I do both.  And if I feel like sketching a Lola Bunny piece, then that's my happy thing, and I'm good with it.  I certainly won't begrudge anyone from drawing whatever makes them happy.  So, if drawing wide-eyed waifus being eviscerated makes you happy, that's fine.  If depicting bishonen as morbidly obese quasi-Hutts is your thing, go ahead; I have no say in what your create.  And if it's androgynous werewolves with humongous mammaries and shrunken heads that tickles your fancy, then don't let me or anyone stop you.  I'm not a neo-Communist Peggy Charren wannabe.  Just as I'm sure some critics would object to being told what they can / can't draw.

Freedom of expression, first and foremost.  Maybe you won't like it, but in the interest of truth and fair warning, you'll get clear proof of who you're dealing with.

Way back in 1997, Jeff Carter was this fellow that put up "Jeff Carter's Lola Bunny Page" that was mostly GIFs and one-by-one displays of Lola Bunny merch.  He had amassed quite a bit, and much of it was for sale.  The site rarely updated, though, and was pretty much stagnant by 2000 or so.  It's gone now, so I can only speculate why.

1) He sold all or most of his wares, so the site wasn't needed any more.  He may have moved on to other venues, such as My Little Pony, but he's keeping his name off of them.  I never got the impression he was a collector per se, more like a retailer, bagging the early wares cheaply, then reselling them at significant markup.  The nostalgia market never seems to run out of money.

2) He's still got a goodly stash, but sells only duplicates, leaving a museum of memorabilia in effect.  Rather than deal with the many excited weirdos online, Jeff keeps his "toys" by invite only, likely using a frontman to vet those that declare interest.  I haven't heard about anyone taking Space Jam swag on tour, like on Antiques Roadshow.

3) Jeff and his wife got older, raised kids, and outgrew their Space Jam days.  Priorities change, y'know?

Thanks, Valiant. Though, at my age, 2/3 of my life is over. I'm now marching toward my grave. *Hope I get a heated coffin ...*

Ah. Hello! c: I can't help but notice you give really good constructive comments on pictures with Lola Bunny, so I was wondering if you could give some critique with my two pieces with her? ^^
