Holy shit, I haven't been active on here in a MINUTE!

Anybutt...I'm still alive. If you've seen my twitter feed you'd see that but...LOL! I've been quite busy trying to make shit happen. Went through some spiraling depressions, self doubt and all that jazziness. Got myself a tumblr, uploaded a new picture  Pretty Princess Peach by Son23 and all that fun shit.

Currently practicing blind contour drawing to help improve my art, as well as help break me out of anime and bad habits and explore other art mediums. Not saying anime is bad, but I can't JUST draw it forever. Also been working on leveling my animation skills as well.

Not sure if I mentioned this either, but I also work on a youtube channel called Hotwired with a British chick named Elsie (for those who don't know). Here's a link to the opening animation:



Other than that...not much else going on. I'm going to try to be more active online in the art world and shit. Hope all is well for everyone else!

Figured I'd give you all a little bit of an update.

Recently I've had computer problems which prevented me from doing...anything. Seriously. It ran so slow, it wasn't functional. Then my friend :iconschefus: helped me out. Turns out it was just dusty as hell! Now that's solved, I'm prioritizing!

For one, I have me diligently uploading videos to the Hotwired gaming channel! I have uploaded for the next 5 weeks, and plan to have at least 13 weeks uploaded. This way I don't have to worry so much about editing videos, and not stress about getting videos up in time. Each weekend I will attempt to edit and upload more videos for the 14th week, etc. However, since I already have things scheduled, I won't have to sweat myself about doing it EVERY weekend.

Moving on to the Animation Requests! I have not worked on them much in weeks. It wasn't just because of the computer issues. I had gotten a temp job that has been pretty much draining me. I'd get up early, drive about an hour (including traffic), work from 8:30-5 doing mundane filing and paper work, drive about an hour and a half back (traffic is worse), and by the time I get home I am pretty much drained. Not tired, but drained. Meaning that I don't have the motivation or the drive to do ANYTHING but sit. Hell, I didn't even want to play Super Mario World. I am still at this temp job until they don't have any more work for me. However, since I have basically lessened my work load by uploading videos for the next few weeks, I think I may feel a little less overwhelmed. I will be trying to finish these requests soon. I am also trying to figure out how to make these into high quality icons, so that if you all so desire you can use them. I also hope to get animation commissions from all of this some day!

Next, I owe people a lot of voice work. Again, that is attributed to the whole temp job thing, but the reason is a bit more of a time problem. See, my family goes to bed EARLY (like 6PM, 7PM) because most of them get up at 1 AM or 3 AM to go to work. So the only times I can really record vocal work is during the day, which I work. Weekends have become free, though (if I am not spending time with my lovely girlfriend). So now that the computer is fixed, I will be working on missed voice work.

I am also going through some deep thoughts. I wish to be an animator and make my own shows and run my own animation company. Yet, my style is mostly Anime. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE anime and I would like to stick to this style once I do have my own company, but I have learned that I cannot do much else BUT anime. Also, no one will take you seriously if you only know one style, especially anime (for some reason people see it as a lazy art style. Never figured that out...). So I have been trying to break free of anime and relearn art. Learning other styles, techniques, etc. Ultimately, I want to be a cartoonist and make silly and serious cartoons, and I would like my style to be anime since I personally find it beautiful. Yet, I need to break free of it for now in order for me to grow.

I have been on the fence about going to Art school...I heard CalArts is awesome, but people also tell me that what Art schools can teach me, I can learn for free online. Which is great and all, but I seem to benefit from a teacher ACTUALLY being there to show me what to do. If I screw something up, they can show me step by step in person what I did wrong, instead of just looking at pictures online. I mean physically take my pencil, erase what I did, and physically show me. That way I can do it myself correctly. Looking at pictures doesn't help me. So I am not sure...plus, I also know most of the basics for animation (2D at least). I also wonder, if I don't go to art school, would people with the degrees have a better shot at jobs than I do?

Anyway, that's all from me right now. Need to go to sleep and work tomorrow...UGH!

If I forgot something, I'll just update this.

Update: 5/4/14
Sorry that these requests are taking a minute. Remember this is me practicing, so I am trying some new things I am not use to yet. Once I get use to it, it'll be much faster!

Currently working on :iconbrawlingwolf:'s request. This one isn't so much rigging as my last two animations as it is frame by frame.

----------------------------------------------------

Update 4/17/14: I got a lot of requests! Thank you to all! I just hope you can all be patient whilst I work on these. Thank you all very much!

----------------------------------------------------

So, the recent Samus

Mature Content

Sexy Samus (Animated) by Son23
 loop I did is something I want to start doing more often as commissions. Before I start doing that, I want to practice on it a bit more. Currently, I have no idea what to do, so I am taking requests. Here's how this will work:

Send me a PM with the name of a character (either an OC or already existing character), give me a description of their attire (a picture would be best), and a brief description of their overall personality.

Rule #1: While I am not opposed to posting nudity, I will not take any pornographic requests. Sexy poses is one thing, but blatant erotic poses, or sex in general I will not take. I plan on making a tumblr for things like that, but I will not take those requests and will not post them on DA. So don't ask.

Rule #2: I WILL NOT DRAW MY LITTLE PONY. AT ALL. EVER.

Rule #3: I can't bring people back from the dead. It's not a pretty picture. I DON'T LIKE DOING IT!

Anything else, you got it! It will be a first come first serve basis, and as the Samus thing took me 3 days I just ask you to please be patient. Once finished, I will post it here on DA either as an swf or .gif.

Can't wait to see what you guys request!

Yea, I'll come out and say it. I really hate the songs from Frozen. I am not hating on the movie, but the movie is fan-FREAKING-tastic. Easily one of my favorite Disney movies of all time. One of the best stories I have seen in a while too but...those songs...I really just don't like them. I remember being in the theater being excited for this movie and looking forward to the songs but...honestly there's only two songs I could remember: One I absolutely LOVED, First Time in Forever; and one I thought was the worst song of the movie (and I know I'll catch shit for it), Let it Go. I'm not joking. To me, Let it Go sounded like a Hana Montana song. Also, don't tell me that I need to know Broadway in order to appreciate the songs, because I HAVE seen Broadway shows and heard their songs. Let it Go sounds like a factory produced pop song.

THAT being said, that song has the BEST imagery of the entire movie. Hands. Down. I love the snow effects, how she builds the castle, etc. I also know and understand it's a big character development and is significant for the character who is singing it...but...I just didn't like the song.

I found the songs very forgettable and bland. First Time in Forever was the only exception in my opinion. It was fun and powerful, to me. Honestly, after Princess and the Frog and Tangled, I was pretty much expecting amazing songs. In my opinion...this movie didn't deliver it.

However, GO SEE FROZEN IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT! Seriously. Go. Now. WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS! GO!

HELLO!!!
Yes I am still very much alive. I know I haven't uploaded much recently. No excuses, I just haven't drawn too much. I HAVE been working on animations, though. In fact, I have an animated series on youtube called Robs Rants Animated. It's on my gaming channel, which if you haven't seen yet you should. We're pretty funny and we tend to suck at most of our games to the point of hilarity. Also there's that whole slender thing. Been trying to get this channel more exposure so we can provide more content and actually make a living. It's funny how having almost 20,000 subs only gets you maybe 200 video views. Those who have stuck with us, thanks for all your support from the bottom of my heart. It means a lot. :)

Currently I am dealing with youtube's new screw up, what with every video getting smacked with BS copyright claims. So yea, that.

In 2014, I plan on releasing a few animated series. I also am thinking about doing Animation Commissions. I made a pole about it, tell me what you think!

Also...I don't have a full time job, and can't pay my student loans. Can't find a full time job, either. Been a year and a half since I graduated college, and all I am finding are sales jobs (literal door-to-door salesmen jobs), or call centers. I didn't go to college to do anything of the sort. So I am dealing with that.

Otherwise I am alive, trying to make things work but am hitting lots of bad luck. LOTS of bad luck. LOTS of bad luck. I remain hopeful, though. Something will come my way, sooner or later.

Love you all!

So i should just mention if you haven't seen it, that yes I am working on animations.

Currently working on character models, and tooling around with frame by frames. I don't want to say when these will come out, because I don't want to stress myself out and rush them out and therefore make it look bad. I will post updates as often as possible, though.


There won't be full episodes at the get go. To get into the flow of animation, I will be doing shorts first. These will be test animations where I will try out some techniques, and at the same time I will work on more things for full episodes.

I can't wait to show these to you!

Also...IT'S HOT OUTSIDE! ROB NO LIKE HEAT!

I wanted to say thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday! =3

A little updated that I should have done months ago (lol), my brother is fine. They discovered a hole in his intestine. They said they found the hole "completely by accident." So now my brother is back to his normal ordering me around self. Yay...?

Still looking for a job. Still need to get back into my art. People keep telling me I am in a slump, but a slump shouldn't last for this many years.

Anywho, enough with the bitching, IT'S ALMOST FUCKING CHRISTMAS!!! FUCKING!!! YES!!!!!

So I haven't updated this in a month or so. I apologize. I have been whipping and running around every which way, apply for jobs left and right, trying to find ways to make money before my loans come in...I've been busy. I have Manga Studio for my Mac, finally, and am trying to make my comics. Haven't had a moment to do that lately, though. Not only can't I get the time right now, I can't seem to get into the groove to want to make them. I'm starting to think I am not an artist.

Also, my oldest brother is in the hospital. He went into the hospital September 22nd around 6 AM. He was throwing up and passing out from extreme pain, then waking up to do it again. It got to the point where there was nothing left to puke out. So they took him to the ER, ran tests for about a week and couldn't find a damn thing wrong, yet he was in so much pain the pain killers wouldn't work. It wasn't kidney stones or food poisoning or anything. They knew it was his digestion because eating solid foods would put him into more pain. He showed all the signs of appendicitis, but his appendix was clean. Finally, on the 30th they found where the pain was. It was where his large intestine met his small intestine: namely where the appendix is. So, they did a colonoscopy (again) and then removed his appendix on October 1st. He came home October 2nd around 3 or 4-ish PM. He seemed ok, just sore. About an hour or two later, the pain came back full force if not worse. He couldn't even walk. Now he is back in the hospital, pain killers not working, and the doctors still can't find what is wrong. Mind you, they had doctors coming in from many different hospitals and practices to find out what is wrong, and they are all baffled.

Seeing my oldest brother, the one who is always acting tough and is completely stubborn and pigheaded, cry out in pain and asking my dad to hold his hand just left me in a state of complete hopelessness. I do not know what to do at this point. I have been praying and praying, talking to people about it, trying to find something that can possibly help. Right now I am in no mood to do anything. I think the worse part about this is that no one can seem to figure out what is wrong. They know where the pain is, but not why it's there and what is causing it.

So basically...I'm not happy (am I ever?).
If you are religious, I ask you to please pray for my brother. If you are not religious, any words of comfort would be nice.

There are a few on here who i owe voice lines to, and a few not on here who i owe voice lines to. I will just say this: I barely have time. I work 6 days a week from 8-3:30, get home by 4, and do my job search. I also have other people living in this house who get up at 1 AM for work, so they go to bed around 6 or 7. I have a hard time when it comes to recording. I am trying, but I don't have much time, and my energy is drained after working in the heat (Mostly teaching Karate from 9:30-2:30 most days).

The same goes for comics, though, unlike voice acting, I don't have to be quiet to work on comics. I have sketched some comics I will soon be putting on my computer. Though, again, my energy is pretty much drained after work.

HOWEVER! I will be posting some Otakon comics I came up with. One involving :iconkevinbolk: =3

Been working summer camp at my current job plus looking for a full time job. I'm. Tired. 6 days a week I am working. I have to work this much because my student loans come in November. Let's hope I find a full time job by then, because once summer camp ends I will only work weekends.

So my Skyrim Demotivational Poster was temporary removed by another artist due to copyright issues. I can't sign the permission agreement because I have no idea who the other artist is. They are not given at all.

I wasn't aware that a non-profit fan base deviation was such a threat.

Submitted to the help desk but no responses. Don't even know how to get back to my post, either.

Hey guys,

UPDATE 6/12/12
Been fiddling around with my new computer. Everything on Windows 7 and Mac works now. Soon I will install my art programs and eventually get back to comics! So sorry there hasn't been a comic in a while.

:iconmayshing: is continuing my homeworks for my improvement =3.

To make things clear, the window's side is mostly for gaming and word documents, while my mac side will be all art. Very soon it'll all come together =3.

Scoot faces, kids! :iconscootwhookos:

btw, the official scootface icon is from scoot's old account. The ScootWhookos one.

My computer parts came in this week! Me and a some friends (one physically here and two over skype) helped me build the sucker. Took 2 days to actually put it together. Everything seems to work, minus the whole graphics card (Nvidia 580 GTX) not working when I install its driver...just freezes the computer on start-up. Trying to find a way to make that sucker work. The computer also doesn't have internet yet. Not too worried about that.

Then on Wednesday I had to go to a business dinner/award ceremony in Wilmington Delaware...WHICH HAD BELLY DANCERS! No joke, this BUSINESS dinner had BELLY DANCERS. REALLY. SEXY. BELLY. DANCERS! Where the hell was this in my business classes?! Not only that, after the award ceremony they had a Brazilian band called Phillybloco that performed for the rest of the night. The girls dancing for them were cute too, very energetic, skimpy, tight, yet flowing dresses. The black girl was particularly energetic...and cute. Lol guess the whole "Once you go black you never go back" phrase is present with me. haha! I will post pictures on here soon.

Anywho, that was my week so far. Got some interesting material for comics as a result too.

Still waiting on :iconthisdarklight: to give me a hand with some animations. He's been busy with his own, but he promised to help me practice and give me some tips so when I come out with shorts they look decent and not like...well, shit.

So put on your scootfaces in anticipation, kids! :iconscootwhookos:

So this week was dedicated to gaming. Next week I have to start a job search for a real job. *twirls finger*

Well, I need to stop saying when I am going to do stuff, because when I do I seem to feel like I have to do it, thus seeing it as work and not pleasure. I should live to work not work to live. I kept trying to get myself to make some comics but each time I was like, "...na...not feeling it." Good news is I'm no longer getting mad at myself. I still hate not getting stuff done.

I did start a few comics, they're just all unfinished. I mostly wanna focus on animation, I think that is the reason why I feel this way. Or it could be I just got a PS3 and am currently addicted. Or both...hm...anywho, I'm gonna stop saying "I'm gonna do this!" unless I already have it done. Mayhap that'll solve this problem?

Yep! This Saturday! I'm excited!
I started a new comic series called "Ask Casey" and a Twitter for it will be up soon. The twitter will be so you guys can ask Casey a question. If you're lucky enough, that question will be put into a comic along with Casey's ridiculous answer to the question.

So what have I done this week? Not much. Working on a game project, but that's all I can say about that. =3
As for the comics, I have one coming this week. Once next week comes, I plan on making one comic a day. I will still post once a week on here, but if you want to see the latest comics you will have to go to my website! Now if I skip a day or two, don't worry. It either means I just didn't finish a comic, didn't really have a good idea for one, busy practicing my animations (which I am counting as a comic), or I am lazy (gaming).

Before my job starts summer camp (in mid June), I want to get back to the Divina Commedia de Son. At the same time, I plan on improving my artwork. I want to finally start these Manga's I have. I fear I may become lazy or unmotivated, but any support usually gets me out of it.

This is my summer! I will at least start my projects! I will also finally get a domain name for my website, so I can finally get rid of that ".webs".

Yep, it will be up tomorrow.
You're probably wondering why there wasn't one last week. Well, last week was when things were returning to normal. If I jumped right on doing a comic simply because "I have to now I have free time," it would just seem like work to me instead of fun. So I took that week off.

As far as "normal" goes, the updates will be on Fridays until school is finished. Then it will be Wednesday's/Thursday's again.

My exams start on May 1st as well, so don't expect a comic that week, or at least a very good one.

The new one I have in the works is about a business dinner I was forced into going to for one of my classes...ugh...

Stay tuned!

Assuming you read the title of this post, yes things will be getting back to normal. Starting next week my schedule should be a lot more free. This is due largely in part of the fact that my internship ends April 9. Seeing as I only have one class Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, that gives me a lot of time to work on comics, voice work, and improvements to my art. Not to mention I will also have time to do home work for school, but it's towards the end of the year so there shouldn't be very many. Though final exams will delay comics a bit once they rear their ugly heads, but that will only be a short delay. I hope to get started on my animated series (FINALLY), SoH What.

There is a downside. This is my final year at college. Soon I will have to find a full time job to make ends meet, so that may hurt updates, animations, and comics again. I do plan on going back to college for graphic design, animation, and illustration, but I am still looking at colleges. Also, I have to pay student loans and then find a way to pay for another college. So, unfortunately, I NEED a job in order to make ends meet...it sucks, but I'll face that dilapidated bridge when I come to it. Hopefully another path will present itself.

Stay tuned! :D
