Emerald City Comic-Con sketchesI am now open to take con sketches for Emerald City Comicon! That means if you are attending the show and you want me to draw something for you, you can request it now to make sure that you get on my list before I run out of slots (which doesn't always happen, but can, so if you're dead set on getting something, send it to me early!). I don't take commissions outside of conventions anymore, so be aware that this is one of the few ways to get custom artwork from me.
What I need from you is an email (to Tally@farbeyond.com) with your NAME, which days you will be at ECCC, which CHARACTER you want, and whether you want BLACK AND WHITE or COLOR. I will send you back a confirmation e-mail and put you on my list.

Color commissions will be done in Copic marker this year (you're gonna love it!)

New comics!Hey all,
I am pleased to announce that a bunch of comics I worked on are coming out in the next few months! Check 'em out!
1. A Boy and a Girl http://confessions123.blogspot.com/2012/10/in-future-world-with-astrogirl.html This is a big one for me, because it is my first book with Oni Press, it took me all of 2011 to draw, and I was working with prolific writer Jamie S. Rich. Plus, it ties into a BIG new site overhaul for Oni Press. You'll be able to read this book for free in January when they start uploading chapters to their website!
2. A story in the Husbands: the Comic trade http://rondanchan.tumblr.com/post/33491535037/comic-book-resources-reveals-dark-horses-recent Contains some of the silliest and best things I have ever drawn. EVER. And the script is by Jane Espenson and Brad Bell! <3

CLOSED - 1 Year Core Membership Christmas RaffleUPDATE!
I just couldn't wait until tomorrow, I'm way too excited, so I'm closing the raffle today! I can't wait to give three of my beloved watches an early Christmas present!! Stay tuned for a new journal presenting the winners in a short while!
Only a month left until Christmas! I don't know about you guys, but I have no idea where all the time went, I feel like it was yesterday I wrote this journal and now we're so close to Christmas, it's insane.
Anyhow, my raffle will most likely end on December 23rd since we're going away for Christmas, but if anything else changes I will let you know!
If you haven't shared my raffle already, I'd really appreciate it if you do!
As promised, I'm going to hold another raffle for Christmas where the prizes are Core Membership, money or points! Of course I'm going to keep doing my monthly giveaways as well during these months until the raffle ends!
(ALWAYS OPEN) Request Box!
I'm opening a tiny request journal in order to celebrate New Year!
I'll be most likely drawing a headshot linearts like this one! But it also can be a different type of drawing, such as an ink or pencil sketch, or an animated illustration as it will be a surprise.
I will be taking a look at this journal from time to time and I'll be only drawing the requests when I have time!
I won't be drawing all requests, but I'll tell you if I start drawing your character and feature your comment.
You have to be a watcher (new watchers are welcome!)

3000 Watcher GiveawayI know I just held a 2500 watcher giveaway, but I actually reached that number a while back (I just couldn't afford to hold it at the time lol). Since then my watch list has crept up to 2801 watchers! That means I'm only 199 watchers away from hitting 3000 watchers
It seriously blows my mind that so many people want to stick with me, but I love you guys so much for it and you mean the world to me, I really want you to know that
So of course I will hold another giveaway once I reach 3000 watchers to celebrate!
The rules are very simple, be a watcher of mine!
Of course I appreciate it a lot if you want to share this in a journal/poll/status update because it will help end the giveaway faster! But it's not a must
Also, I will NOT give the prize to another account! The account you've used to participate in my giveaway is the one that will get the prize!
Please don't watch me just to unwatch me after the giveaway is o
