I wont be uploading to Patreon any longer because want to police content all over the internet.

Last weekend I received an email from Patreon asking to remove some pictures. They weren't specific about it, they just implied they don't like vore where people are being crushed or chomped on.

Verbatim: "Vore content is allowed as long as it is completely consensual, with both parties involved. Regardless of the form the character takes, such as a strawberry or human form, the scene needs to be consensual and non-violent. The problem with several of your posts was that they showed the characters being consumed while they were fighting against the situation, and then eventually being crushed, crossing over into sexual violence."

I'm pretty happy to work within a websites rules to put artwork on their website so I had a look through my list of artwork and deleted this pic of Peridot taking a big bite out of a Minion. It was the only artwork I could see that fit their description. I asked them to link me to any other artwork they'd also like me to take down. I was expecting them to like to a few more Patreon posts, not a load of my Deviant Art posts.

Here's the list they sent me:

At this point I realised there's not much point in engaging with Patreon any longer. I understand that they don't want 'sexualised violence' related to their platform and that's a phrase that's open to interpretation. It seems Patreon and I have very different definitions of this term. The list they sent me is typical of about 99% of the artwork I make and I'm not about to stop. I was getting $20 a month on patron, it's very nice and I appreciate the support but it's not worth the price of artistic freedom.... Maybe if I was buying a house on Patreon money I might consider bending over backwards for them... But artistic freedom is also very valuable, maybe worth more than a house?

If you have a Patreon page and you're making kinky artworks maybe you should prepare yourself for call from the Thought Police. You can have a Patreon page but you just can't link to it, mention it or post any kinky artworks on it... They have some really strange rules.
I've been fairly quite for a while now but I haven't been doing nothing! I've been working on a big ass comic. It's no secret to anyone who addends my streams regularly. It's getting to the point where I want to shout about it so here's a sneaky preview of it all! It'll still be a while before it's done though.... I have to shade it.   

All The Pages Sm by Ragadabah


The astute of you will know that if I had arts that were 'Too Lewd for DA' I'd post it to Tumblr. Now that Tumblr has declared it's intention to commit suicide on the 17th of December I guess I wont be posting on there much more. I do post everything at high resolution to my Patreon Page so if you're scared of losing out you can always follow me there for $1 a month and get my 'Too Lewd for DA' stuff. As for people who don't want to pay where do you think I should set up a new shop?

Newgrounds sounds like the want that NSFW stuff real baaad - But who has account there? A bunch of 13 year old edge lords still using Macromedia Flash?
Twitter lets people post lewdies - but for how long?
Hentai Foundry can take it's submission rules and shove them up it's arse - Do you even have an account there?
Pixiv looks like the best alternative - Maybe I should try to learn Japanese so I can use it.

Daisy-Pink71:icondaisy-pink71: Has just gone and done a super cute picture of Sunny Beamzzzzzzzzz (the more zeds the better) She's done a nice job of capturing her hyper personality! Now go and leave a comment.

I've been meaning to put up my commission prices for a while now but I haven't been able to stop, think about it and prepare a new price guide. Time and money have been stressing me out recently and the thought of giving up art or commissions has been creeping into my mind because it's not been so fun recently.

I'd like to try have a broader range of prices so I can do stuff for people who can't afford higher prices, so that might be sketches, coloured sketches, head shots some experimental stuff.
I tend to take a lot of time making my current commissions so it might be more fun for me to do rough, less polished stuff as a bit of a compromise.

If you want a commission let me know what your idea is and I'll still try get to you with a price. If that's too much let me know what you could spend and we might be able to work something out.

If you have any questions or suggestions leave a comment.

I want to ask. What do you want to see me make more of? Just throw some ideas down there in the comments.

When I started out with my Deviant Art I started by doing requests until there was too many for me to keep up with and my head exploded. It was always fun doing requests though because I could take some ones idea, have fun with it and not worry about them liking it. If the requester got super entitled and started complaining that I was making something that I didn't want I could just tell them to 'fuck off'. When it got too much I moved onto doing commissions which was great because I get paid to draw. People who commission are a hell of a lot more respectful and less entitled than people who demand free requests, which is odd because by virtue of paying for artwork they are entitled to it. I will respect commissioners requests to change things though, and I'll send sketches to make sure things are on track. I've never come close to feeling like telling a commissioner to 'fuck off.' The problem is commissions don't allow for the best amount of creative freedom. Some of my best requests usually pissed off the requester, I wasn't actively seeking to do that but it happened and I found it funny. 

What I want to do is find a way of taking suggestions for stuff to draw that I can be really creative with. At the same time I also want too feed myself and have a roof over my head.

I feel a bit cheeky saying all that now since I do have a few upcoming commissioned projects such as a few awesome bondage pictures ( which might be too naughty for Deviant Art) and a pretty substantial comic commission which is only being held up by my inability to write good 'n stuff.

Hi Everyone! Sorry I've been so quiet for what seems like the whole of 2016. I didn't really mean for it to be this way but that's how it turned out. I haven't stopped making artwork or anything, it's just that 2016 seemed to be a year of big projects. What I've learned is that when I do a big project I get bogged down and start to go slow. Because of that 2016 wasn't really a great year for me and I'm planning on making 2017 better. But first I still need to finish this big project. Here's a sneak-peek. It's Killing me right now but Hopefully when I look back on it in a year I'll be very happy with it. It's also going to be the last big picture I do for a few years.... Unless they become incredibly profitable which I don't see happening.


There's five more on my website, click here to visit it. 


So what about 2017? I plan on doing lots more little projects. I want to start getting a good drawing done every day or two, I would still like to keep doing commissions but I want to start doing lots more of my own artwork too. I'll be trying to focus my commissions on doing small things. I kind of want to do more comics and animations but I think from now on they will be personal projects because they are much easier and quicker to do when I do them for myself and if I don't like doing them I can bin then without worrying about making a client angry. I'll also be looking at ways to fund that. I'll be doing something with my patreon even if it's just putting my full sized artworks on there (personal projects, full size commissions are only available to the commissioner. I'm keeping full sized artwork off of deviant art because they claim a lot of usage rights to anything on here as part of their TOS) For the people who hate patreon I might look at other funding methods but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
To cut a long ramble short this year I want to make more stuff, and I want more of it to be my own stuff which I think will be more imaginative and fun.
We'll see what happens eh?

Happy New Year Everyone!

Streaming the big thing!

Sneekypeek3 by Ragadabah
Today I'll be carrying on some work on this big beast of a picture. I'll be streaming at Piczel
piczel.tv/watch/Ragadabah
This isn't even half the picture.

On a side note I want to apologise for neglecting my Deviant Art page for so long. Not just my page but art in general. Life is being a little turbulent for me right now but as you might have noticed the bondage bug has bit me really hard and I've been getting really excited about drawing artwork (especially bondage stuff) again. This week I've been getting up and making art like a mad man and I love it. I hope this level of determination continues and I hope to make plenty of artwork you guys love.

Time for streaming. If you like to ask me anything come and chat

'Fan Arts' and Xcom 2

Sat Feb 13, 2016, 1:51 AM
Hey ya'll. Straight away I want to say a big thanks to grim2thbone :icongrim2thbone: for doing some great artwork of my character Zee. You people should check the rest of his stuff out.

Zee version 2 painted by grim2thbone



So contrary to my last Journal I've been quiet for the last month or so - oops. Well I was busy animating and drawing until last Friday at which point Xcom 2 came out - needless to say it's great. I spent a little bit too much time rushing through the campaign but now it's out of my system.... mostly. (It's not at all, I want to start it on hard mode)

Also the vipers are JERKS - but they're not the worst XP

Step 1
Pick up a pencil


Step 2
Draw

IT'S REALLY THAT SIMPLE

Babyshout by Ragadabah

I keep on seeing these big blogs on tumblr that list something like 18 tip on how to be an artist which always seem 'feel good', 'super critical' or 'horribly contradictory'. When your looking for art tips just remember that artists (and people) can only really talk from personal experience so get tips from a wide variety of sources. People are going to tell you different things, a lot of it's going to be bullshit but sometimes there's nuggets of golden wisdom. How do you sort out the wisdom from the poo? Experience! If I ever have any general tips for people it's 'practice, practice, practice!' If you don't know what to draw just copy a photo or go outside and draw a.... tree?!


Oh and one more thing, if you decide to try writing because your bad at drawing just remember writing's also a skill and it requires the same amount of practice. To be honest it's probably more of a skill than drawing. If you want to write it should be because you love writing and not because you can't draw.

Any questions? 

I'm back...

Jungle of the Star Borne Old ones by Ragadabah

Happy new year and belated seasonal greetings to you all.
Sorry for being quiet for so long but I had been working on my latest piece of artwork and it just took way longer than expect. Mostly because it's huge but also because bits of life kept on getting in my way. I don't have much of a life but it's enough to get in the way of making fun artwork and that's really annoying. 
I'm back now though and I should be making regular updates and taking regular commissions and hopefully commenting on everyone's artwork. I also want to make more of my OWN artwork rather than commissions. I have ideas. horrible terrible nightmarish ideas that will ruffle your tiny mind - also some fun ideas too. Sadly making my own artwork is worthless but I'll still do it anyway because I have to express myself. I think to help me with this i'll be posting more sketches on tumblr because that seems like a place to post sketches and I'll be pushing my patreon more this year. I also want to do more animation and make more comics, I have no idea how I'll do that but I'll try and work something out.
I can't think of anything else to say so, uh, bye.

Working on something big (STREAMING)

Thu Nov 19, 2015, 6:56 AM
You might have noticed I've been a bit slow with my uploads for a while. That's because the awesome :iconprodigal-gamer: has commissioned a HUGE picture and it's taking some time to finish. Right now I'm working on the colouring, even though it's no where near finished I'm ready to give a sneak peek of a tiny part of it.

 I'll be streaming on picarto for the rest of the day if you want to see more 

Wipple by Ragadabah



Do you want to see one of these things finished? Well there's actually FOUR. Clicking on the image will take you to my website and you can explore them using a thing called zoomify. That might mean you can't see them on a mobile. This was to stop people from stealing the pics. If anyone knows a better more modern way of doing something similar please let me know. The only better solution I have is uploading them in full with a massive watermark across them.









100,000 views and Stuff

Mon Oct 12, 2015, 4:03 AM
Thank you everyone who's had a look at my work and a big thank you to everyone who's supported me.
100,000 is a lot of views and it's happened while I've been so inactive. 
Hopefully I should be getting a whole lot more active artistically. Either that or I've lost everything AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
