Commissions Complete! Now for personal art.

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 17, 2018, 1:23 PM

I just finished up the last of my commissions, and now I am gonna take a break and focus on personal works. I'd like to start trying to post every day, or every other day again. Just silly little sketches or whatever comes out (not taking suggestions, I just want to be free to let my brain do it's thing). :)

For those who are looking for when I will open commissions again, don't worry, I'll advertise when I am ready to take more work. And no, asking me over and over will not get me to open sooner. ;P

Alright, see you all next post!

I finally got caught up with messages! Since I started posting on DA, I've endeavored to reply to every comment I get, and I have no intention of stopping any time soon. I just need to not let them get so backed up, like I did this month. XD
Heya all!

I am sorry I haven't been able to reply to everyone's comments, recently! I saw all the wonderful birthday wishes, and the lovely comments on my recent posts, but I just haven't been able to spend the time to sit down and reply to them all. I will catch up soon, I am just focusing my energy on finishing up commissions, at the moment. After that, I'd really like to see about doing a daily sketch thing, again. It's been a while since I posted regularly (lots of things pulling me in different directions), and I miss posting random character sketches. It's about time for something like that, again. 

Anyways, I'll catch up with you all, soon! :)
Ok, I am preeeetty sure I replied to every commission request, whether I accepted it or not. If I somehow missed yours and didn't reply, then let me know! I don't want anyone feeling ignored, even if you didn't get accepted. I got so many great ideas that it was very hard to choose! But I could only take so many, and I tried to take the ones I felt that I could do the best work with. 

So thank you for sending a request! Even if I didn't accept it (or couldn't accept it, due to the number of requests), I still really appreciate it! Perhaps we will get a chance to work together in the future! And perhaps I will grow 8 arms to help me handle the load, in the future. XD

Anyways, All the best to all of you! See ya in the next post! 
Commission response update! :)

I am still working my way through emails, and I have mentioned multiple times that I will reply to every email and note, whether your commission request was accepted or not. If I have not replied to you, even if you sent one right away, please be patient. I received closed to 50 detailed commission applications, most of which came in within the first 10 minutes or so. So I am going through and providing responses to every one I didn't accept, as well as emailing those who I did accept. It's a lot of work, so bare with me. I am working out the last two, so there's two more people who will be selected. 

Please do not send emails or notes assuming you were ignored. It only adds to the number of messages I need to reply to, which means you will get your response even later. 

Thanks again for everyone who applied, and again, please be patient! I'll post a journal once I have answered every email. If you haven't received a reply at that time, then you will know I missed yours. 

Still working my way through all these commission requests (with more coming in haha), so if you haven't heard back from me, don't worry, I am getting there. :D

Yo! Your artwork is amazing, and I absolutely love your style! If you don't mind my asking, do you make art as a hobby or professional? (I ask because I'd love to see some more of your work, and maybe support your projects!)

Heya, and thank you for the compliments on my work! 

I suppose you could say both, it's my #1 hobby, and also how I make my living. Been doing it full time since the beginning of 2013. :)

I make enough through my art to support both my wife and myself, via Patreon and Gumroad art packs. I also do commissioned work on occasion, though less of that these days, as I focus more on my own projects and ideas. I am very fortunate to have found an audience that can support me while I spend my days working on the things I am passionate about, and sharing them with the community. :)

I post a majority of my artwork for free, right here on DA, withholding about 4 pinup drawings a month as exclusive rewards for my Patreon followers. If you are interested in getting access to those works (and chipping in to to support my work), you can reach my Patreon, here:

You can also get older Patreon art packs on my Gumroad, here:

I appreciate the interest, and hope that answers your questions!
