I’m sorry I’ve been away. My last log-in I think was around 2013-2014. The reasons for my absence, unfortunately are deeply personal, and the embarrassing details of it I would rather not share at this time and I’m hoping we can just leave it at that.
I really did not plan on coming back to DeviantArt until I a few more matters settled first, but I owe a number of people some already-paid-for-art that are years overdue, and I think this is a good for me time to re-engage with them and see if it’s not too late patch things up.
I would have liked to say that I will be happy to refund commissioners for the money already paid, but, sadly, because of my present financial circumstances, I am unable to. Instead, please accept my offer to work on those pics instead and therefore help me make it right with everyone. Because I am presently struggling to make ends meet, however, I cannot afford to devote 100% of my time to the artworks all the time, so I would ask for further patience to give me time to finish up everything in my list.
Speaking of which, I do still have the list, which also includes the type of commissions requested, but I no longer have the specific contact info of the individual commissioners. I also can’t access my old e-mail anymore because it had been dormant for a really long time so all the message threads are probably as good as lost. It took me some time in fact to search my files for information on my DeviantArt password so I could log in back here again.
If I may, I would like to request everyone I owe art to get in touch with me via my new e-mail, which is email@example.com. I still have most of the information about the commission and I think I also still have some finished art that have not been submitted yet, but I am also open to working on art based on revised information. I know some of those art are for specific stories or circumstances and if you think they’re already outdated and the resultant art would no longer be of use—as I assume would be the case for most of them—I’ll be happy to hear out what you have in mind.
Here are the commissioners that appear on my list: Shuma-Gorath, Devduck01, Kervala, Kley Sheddan, Jason4012, Exeter42, DragonTea, Egmccann, Gavin Riches, GPSBassist, Maguigan, Matthew Bigham, Matthew Steibling, MegatronResurected, Michael Holloway, Stryker, Wayne Thomason, Dynakor, Solari, Pumpmonger and Lordfoot-in-Mouth. If you are not in the list, please let me know, I might have inadvertently left you out. If I no longer owe you art, please let me know as well. (Edit: list updated based on new information)
I am actually looking forward to hearing from you and though I probably not be able to tackle everything in a short period, I am hoping to finally get everything done and make good with everyone. Besides, the least I can do is to spend a good deal of time with the art so I can deliver something you will be happy with. If I don’t hear from you, though, I will try my best to contact you, though that would probably be over DA since I no longer have a single e-mail address on my existing record.
Lastly and most importantly, please accept my deepest apologies for the inconvenience and for putting you through the fear that I might have run away with your money and not hear from me ever again. I also understand if some or even all of you are pissed at me but please rest assured that had I any choice I would never have disappeared unceremoniously. If you’re curious, though, I am okay given the circumstances, but it will really mean a lot to me if you will all give me a chance to work on all owed artworks so that I can finally erase any debt I have. After I’m done, I’ll probably be gone for some time again, but at least I can do that with clear conscience this time.
Thanks for your time and, for the commissioners, I hope to hear from you soon.Taclobanon/Jet
Taclobanon-Plus ('mature' gallery)This is with regard the recent survey on separating adult content from my main gallery. Thanks for those who responded, especially those who left comments. They're a big help!
So I've decided to maintain a separate gallery for the adult contents and keep this one as my main account featuring traditional superhero/fantasy and sci-fi-themed pieces:
It's actually a 2-year old account which I haven't had the opportunity to put into good use til today. It's quiet there for now, but I have an inkling it'll change soon! I have already uploaded a few pics and future mature content will go there directly. So basically those will be deviations that require me to click 'mature content' during submission, as well as bondage and other fetish content. My judgment call on the latter, as some pics with those elements might still find its way here, especially if they're subservient to the actual storytelling.
I will eventually move a lot of the mature stuff from here to there, but
