Time to get real, folks...


As you guys know, I'm nowhere near perfect. I make mistakes, and one of those mistakes is that I sometimes take on more projects than I can handle. Now, this is no fault of the people who ask of me to draw things for them. I could've said "no" at any time, but I chose to take up certain tasks without knowing if I was able to follow through with them. That being said, I've come to realize that with my pursuit for work in the real world and validation in the virtual world, I have an upper limit to what I can and cannot do. This is why in the latest "State of the Artist" you may have noticed that I dropped the "Comic Project" I've had posted in there for quite some time.

Currently, I'm in the midst of organizing things in order of priority in my life, and I noticed that I have to drop certain things for one reason or another that I'll not burden you all with. That comic, unfortunately, was one of them. I originally accepted it in the beginning because, at the time, I thought I had the free time and will power to accept something like it, and it'd be a good exercise for me since I never drafted a comic in my life so far, outside of some sketches I made in kindergarten. Eventually, problems arose that prevented me from working on it, and even though I overcame those problems, other things in my life came crashing down to the point where I started becoming depressed. To be honest, I feel like I still am, though I'm doing what I can to try and combat it.


At any rate, because I felt like I couldn't deliver on that promise, and I was literally creating excuses so I didn't have to work on it (it was a free request, by the way), I decided to let the requester know (I'm not going to put their name out there, so don't ask) that I wasn't going to work on it anymore. Needless to say, they didn't take to well to the idea, especially having them wait a year's+ time for an update, despite whatever happened. To me, it wasn't fair to keep them waiting on it, especially since I had lost the will to continue working on it, so I'm in the process of dealing with that. As expected, it's not going well, but I feel like I brought most of that on myself. Still, I have to draw the line when I can't proceed any further, otherwise I'll end up hating doing one of the few things in life that brings me some joy, and deal with the consequences of my actions as they come.


Just wanted to get that off my chest, and be transparent with you guys. I feel the situation is going to spiral in some direction I don't want it to, so I wanted you all to hear it from me first in case this goes much further south.

Commission Art -- Cat-tastrophe 2.0
So, I occasionally get commissioned by :iconkairoshi: to draw commissions of DIDs (damsels in distress) mostly of Felicia from Darkstalkers. Occasionally, he'll ask me to draw some of his OCs, including these two, Cleo and Violet. This time, they're allowed to have a seat... :3

Cleo and Violet (c) :iconkairoshi:

Greetings fellow artists and art lovers! It may be gone for a while, but It's finally back! Time for the newest entry of State of the Artist~!For those who are new to this page, sup. This is a semi-annual journal post I put up to inform others about the state of things regarding me, my art, and how it may/may not affect those who added me to their watchlist! It's a way for me to reach out to you all, give you guys an update about what is going on in my life, and hopefully get you guys to reach back! I try to post these as often as possible, but if you've been following my post schedule, fair warning: you shouldn't expect that which is unexpected (namely the frequency that I post these)!  Now, with that out of the way,START!--  What Has Been Going On With Me  --Got a new job finally. The upside, $12/hr starting pay. The downside, it's a night job; so now my sleep schedule is even more screwed up than it usually is! Ah well, at least I'm a night owl, so it doesn't affect me that much. What does affect me, however, is this toothache that I'm currently battling. After seeing my local dentist after my dental insurance kicked in, I'm on some anti-biotics until I can get my tooth worked on, and it's somewhat kept the pain manageable. Sometimes, though, it gets to the point where I can barely get any sleep, or eat. It heckin' sucks, my dudes... --  How About Dat Art, Son!?  --... Because of the pain, my drawing speed has declined greatly... The pain gets to the point sometimes where I can't even focus long enough to draw. This is why, combined with adjusting to my new job, art has been real slow lately. That aside, I'm getting to a point where I need to spread my social media presence on the internet a lot more. While I appreciate you guys here on DA, I need to get my name out there as much as I can, hence why you see me pushing my twitter, instagram, and even patreon pages on each of my submissions. If you guys have any of those, feel free to follow me on any or all of them. There's stuff on each that I can't post here for various reasons ( either the format is different, or it's a bit too saucy for DA :3 ), so pay each site a visit. Also, no worries if you think my Patreon will serve as a paywall for some of my future content. It won't! Though Patrons will get first access to things I post there, I will also be sure to post content I post there on my other sites (and here) as well! As I'm simply a starving artist for now, this is just a way to serve as a means to justify my position as an artist, and as it grows, so will my potential for greater projects as well. Join now, for as little as  $1 a month! Any bit helps, and is greatly appreciated! Next we move onto another art thing: -- Your Character Here Entries! --The momentum for them seems to have died down as of late, and that's mostly my fault. Once I get back into the swing of things, I'll work on some other YCH poses for you all to browse through. Note: If there is a change requested to where the pose is changed in great detail (ie: armor, the character is a robot, additional limbs not including wings, tails, or [[penis]]), a small charge may be added depending on the degree of the change. Though I'm more prone to creating my own YCH templates, I'm open to ideas if you don't see a pose you want to be added. Be sure to comment somewhere, or send me a note about a potential pose you'd like to see included in my gallery to be used in the future. I may offer a discount to those who suggest me a pose. We'll see. My YCH poses aren't one-time use templates. If you see a pose you like, don't' hesitate to let me know! They're available until I take them down! If you are interested in checking out my YCH poses, visit my gallery folder here and see if there's a pose you'd like for a character of your choice! --   Art That is Currently in Production  --Here's the current list of the drawings I'm working on currently.  - Commissions  -None- Commissions are currently open, btw! Send me a note if you're interested!  - Requests  :iconRegreme: Character Design Request - nearly done **** Additional requests are currently closed! *****NOTE* If I left out a request/art trade/etc that we've previously discussed in the past, please send me a reminder note. I am human, and am getting old, so I do forget things... If not, until I get to a certain point, further requests will not be accepted. But when I get to a more comfortable state, I'll notify when they're open again, although they will be limited to a few spots, so as to not overwhelm myself again.  - Gift Art/Art Trades -None-  Personal Stuff  TBA For those who are interested in commissions, art trades, collaborations, be sure to note me the details of each, and we'll discuss the terms of art stuff. For a list of my current commission pricing, be sure to check out my Static Post, where I'll maintain and update prices and rules as necessary.   Final Words  Guys, it's been a long and winding road during my time here and exposing my art on the internet. I know I go dark sometimes, but I appreciate for you all being patient with me, and always enjoying and commenting on the new art I do post here. As I post more and more pieces, I hope to get better and better, and spread my name further across the world. For those who are my newest watchers, thank you very much for adding me to your list. For those who have been here for a while, you have my deepest gratitude for remaining here for as long as you can. Thanks again you guys, and we'll talk again next time on...State of the Artist!

Miqote Paladin
I was asked by a twitter follower some time ago to draw their miqote paladin from Final Fantasy 14. So I did. Is it just me, or does it seem like some of the armor sets in FF14 feel like a cosplayer got a pile of Worbla and felt "inspired"? Been looking forward to getting back into it when I get a chance, I hear the Shadowbringer expansion is pretty cool so far, and I might want to start a new character as one of the new races.

Raven Boba
A continuation of the previous post. Raven is taking her turn for the "Boba Tea Challenge", but with a twist. Starfire thinks she's cheating. What do you think?
