Hello everyone and happy new year!
I hope everyone had a pleasant holiday season and goes into 2018 refreshed. I would like to again thank everyone who took the time to favourite, watch and comment over the past year. I really appreciate it and it makes all of this worth it.
Personally, 2017 was a pretty stressful and far too busy time, with a lot of fairly momentous events and shifts. While those are still ongoing, I hope to increase my posting output this year. Between bouts of depression and dissatisfaction with the current state of my art, I created and shared far less artwork than I had hoped going into the year. My goal for 2018 is to remedy this, posting more actual artwork and stories, and less journals excusing the lack of updates (off to a great start already...) I have some plans I am excited to share with everyone.
First things first, I am largely caught up with most of my commissions, which is a good way to start the new year. Below are the current lineup of those:
1. Single image
3. Single Page Prize
On the subject of commissions, I will be increasing the prices of commissions slightly in the near future. This does not affect anyone who has already been in contact with me about potential future commissions who has been quoted a price.
My goal for this year is to try and get at least one drawing or story a week posted to the site and try to improve my craft. In order to improve, feedback on both my drawing and writing is very very much appreciated! I feel my art largely stagnated in 2017, so I want to work hard to rectify this in the upcoming year. Additionally, I want to really start building up my original work, Kroashent
. I am hoping to post a lot more of that series as well and am working on a longer sequence set in the universe and other smaller project (including the character Q+As from a while back. I haven't forgotten about them!)
Thanks for your support and I look forward to sharing my art with you over the next year!
Commissions, Trades and Gifts:
I'd like to take this time to share some of the amazing artwork and stories from other artists and friends on the site and give them the spotlight that they deserve. Lots of amazing work!
Peach's Reward (Peach Tf to Koopa Queen)It was another typical day in the Mushroom Kingdom. Toads strolled the streets and played and worked the day away. The sun shined down upon the land from above, and Princess Peach watched over her kingdom from her castle. Of course, also as usual, the Princess was rather worried that Bowser would appear and trash the place, AGAIN.
The princess’ worried musings were interrupted by a quiet little knock at her door. She opened it, and was somewhat surprised to see an out of breath Mailtoad standing in the doorway. “Here…..” He passed her a carefully wrapped package. “Someone dropped this at the post office and said it was urgent. I figured it might be rather important, so I’ve brought it directly to you.” Peach thanked the Mailtoad and showed him out. Once that was done with, she looked at the package quizzically. She hadn’t been expecting any mail, and things seemed to be relatively normal at the moment. She opened the package. Inside was a
Carolina Chase and the Burglar -Gift-Carolina Chase wiped her brow again as she stepped through the door of the luxurious manor she called home. The entranceway of the estate felt unbearably warm to the adventurer, but then again she had just gotten back from an expedition to the North Pole; anyplace else would've felt warm after that.
As Callie hung up her coat, she noticed a handwritten note that'd been left for her on the end table. The writing was backwards, like a reflection in a mirror; that alone was a major hint regarding who had written it. Callie smiled knowingly as she held it up to a nearby mirror for decryption.
There was a little incident while you were gone. I dealt with it, but we now have a new pet to take care of; you can find her in the study. Come see me in person and I'll explain further.
Intrigued, Carolina Chase made her way down the hallway to the study. Right away, a new cage sitting on the table caught her eye. Step
