Vancoufur 2018 bound!It's that time of year again! I will once again be at Vancoufur 2018 (https://vancoufur.org/) happening March 9-11 at the Executive Airport Plaza hotel in Richmond BC. I will be in the Dealer's Den at table 26 selling prints, buttons, badges, commissions, stickers, yada. If you are going to be in vancouver, come stop by and say hi!
I will also be hosting a couple of panels, one on patreon and the other on drawing transformation art. So if you are interested, come on by! Schedule for Vancoufur is here: https://vancoufur2018.sched.com/

Late Night StreamingDoing some late night streaming while I color the next Shifters page. Come gawk.
Excuse the flood - Comics incomingI've decided to upload all the pages of Shifters Redux (and probably brymstone at some point) to DA, as its not as important as it once was to have them on their own site and shuffle people around. Most of my support these days comes in the form of either private commissions, streaming commissions, or Patreon.
Its more important to have visibility where people live than worry about just having it in one spot. Its more viable now to have your comics wherever people will read them, than drive them to one spot for ad revenue or something. I know a lot of my support has always come from DA watchers, and I hope having all the pages here will help people discover the comics.
But I've got literally hundreds of pages to upload, so I'm sorry in advance about flooding your inboxes.
Be amazing, help a dog get vet careMy Nieces and my sister have been through absolute hell this last year and a half. My sister is now in a messy, complicated, shitty divorce. There's a lot of terrible things that have happened, and unfortunately for legal reasons I can't get into the full extent of this, but suffice to say its bad, and she's in a very difficult position. She's a single mom now, with two kids, working two part-time jobs trying to make ends meet.
And now their family dog, the sweetest, most patient animal I have ever known, has lumps. It has been made clear she needs to go to the vet by a family friend who's a retired vet technician. (i'm guessing mammary tumors from the pictures) This dog is my Nieces' support animal, which has been helping them get through these tough times. Particularly the oldest one, who suffers from anxiety from the trauma of everything that's happened.
But because my sister's ex doesn't support her in any way financially, and has outright refused to help with the dog, my sis
Vancoufur, Badges, updatesA few things to talk about in this journal, so lets get to it.
Vancoufur is happening again! March 9-12 at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel in Richmond, BC, Canada! (That's basically right next to Vancouver, BC for those who aren't familiar with the West Coast). Che and myself will be there vending our wares, including the brand new printed version of Issue 3 of Shifters! Also got lots of buttons and prints, and at table commissions, and I will also be doing panels on drawing and making comics. More information can be found about Vancoufur here: http://vancoufur.org
To this end I have 2 badge commission types open until tomorrow and I still have slots! If you are interested in a badge, please let me know ASAP.
The specialty ones (Starship Pilot or Bounty hunter) can be ordered here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdqoLOyban6c5b1GmIODEK6B0YA05O7k_SA-VXrpX0pfSaUWQ/viewform
For Patreon, what rewards do you value?So, I have a patreon. It's not much right now, but I'd like to rework it so it's got more value for people that support me through it. Its also got to be stuff I can deliver. Also right now it mostly is just around Shifters, but it could possibly support Brymstone too if there was enough interest.
However, I'd like to get an idea of what sort of patreon rewards you, the supporters, feel have value. I don't have core membership anymore, or I'd probably do a poll, so this will have to do.
So, here are my personal observations so far with Patreon:
I've offered things like exclusive livestreams and skype Q&As, and no one attends, so I feel like this has little value on a "patrons only" level currently.
I've got a strong feeling that people are mostly there just for the early updates of the comic/lineart previews. this makes some sense though, people are there for the /comics/ first and foremost.
I don't really get much feedback on the wallpapers or any ot
Streaming 08/20 - Shifters drawingDrawing lineart for shifters. Come and gawk if you want. Normally I'd be doing this for patrons only, but attendance has been sparse since its summer probably and everyone is out camping. Also other people might not even know I have a patreon for Shifters/Brymstone. It's here https://www.patreon.com/shadowsmyst if you want to check it out.
Some stuff is a little messed up though because they magically put my page in a beta for tagging and it screwed up posts. I haven't fixed yet. Doing this art first, then fixing that stuff.
So if you want a free preview of new pages, you can want to come and watch the stream. https://picarto.tv/ShadowsMyst

[RAFFLE 4000 points or $40]Chit Chat! Updates!!!Hi ya'll!
It's been forever since I have written here, but I figured I would update ya'll on my life.
I recently got a new job, it's still new but it will help me greatly for bills and saving up! So I don't have to panic anymore hehe. Always scared I can lose it though. I hope not!
-I recently started making a financial plan and schedule for bills as well as capping limit on spending a certain amount, I've been trying to do it where I do not need to freeze my card once it hits a certain amount and it's going well. Hopefully that continues <3
-I'm starting to eat healthier, even though the environment where I live is still horrible I feel like I'm making progress.
-I want to thank all of you who I've met on here and supported me, gave me advice, and have been just so genuinely kind.

old journal entry from winter:
uaggh! I don't even know how to write journals anymore D: I hope everyone is
F.A.Q. TIME!!I get quite a few messages here on DA with various questions and requests. I don't have time due to work and family to answer all of them individually like I would like so I think a handy-dandy FAQ is in order. This way maybe I can answer a question before it's even asked and/or have a journal I can easily direct people to. So here we go!
Q: Can you give me any tips on how to draw/color,paint/whatever better?
A: The quick and easy answer is that there aren't any secrets to being able to draw well. I know it's not what people want to hear and everyone is looking for a magic trick that will instantly make them a better artist. The truth is that I have dedicated 1000s of hours to art in an effort to get better. I attended figure drawing classes, went to conventions and spent hours talking to other artists, and spent nearly every dime I had on books and art supplies. I lived it and breathed it. When you were out on a date or playing video games or seeing movies I was probably home d
NPC Design Contest!NPC Design Contest!!!
I've mentioned this a couple times during streams and in the questions channel of the kebanzu discord but I wanted to make a couple official exciting announcements! The first bit of news is that there will be two new ES shops added to the kebanzu group, one shop is going to be a stylist shop where you'll be able to change colors and traits on your kebs, and the other is going to be a pet shop where you can purchase pets and mounts for your kebs!
Theres another thing that I've really been wanting to implement for a while that I just haven't had the chance to do, which is to have actual NPC shop keepers, which is where you guys come in!
I've decided to hold an NPC design contest for the two new shops as well as the Enchanted Stone Exchange!
The contest will run for 3 weeks starting NOV 1 and ending on NOV 22 at 11:59pm Pacific time
