Art Freedom, Deployment, and 2017

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 2, 2016, 11:09 AM


HEY GUYS.

It is definitely high noo-... high time I put a journal together for everyone.

---- Art freedom, something, something...
Anyone keeping up with my CAO's and Op Status updates (profile page) know that I've discontinued commissions for the foreseeable future. This isn't permanent by any means, I just need to relax and do my own thing for a while. I have a lot on my plate coming up and have been feeling extremely stretched and constrained in part to commissions and life in general. I seriously love you guys, you all have supported me through thick and thin (including my less than stellar moments where I've needed to rant my thoughts over social media). With this moment in time where I recollect my inspiration, what made me want to create art in the first place, I hope to open commissions in the future that portray a higher quality bar than ever before. I just need my own time. For now! In just the past few days I've been planted at the computer more than willingly toiling in Photoshop; my twitter is positively exploding with works in progress. :D

Thanks, everyone, for understanding my situation. I know a countless number of you are going through the same circumstances and may not have the option to stray from commissions like I can, many of you rely on commissions as a main source of income, so I wish all power to you.
If you need someone on the sideline cheering you on, I'm here for you. You can do it!! If you have me added on Skype and need a red-line or a second eye with something, just hit me up if I'm online. If you don't have my Skype, please send me a note with your tag and I may add you if I'm already familiar with who you are. If we've never talked before I may be less inclined to add you back, please don't take it personally! I've had stalker issues in the past and enjoy my privacy. ^^;


---- Deployment: The Sandbox
Just have to put this out there first and foremost -- I will not be announcing, or even hinting, at any dates whatsoever for leaving or returning from deployment, thank you for understanding!

If it isn't evident by now, I am active duty military (going on five years now, whew). What normally comes with this position is that soon I'll be deployed to 'the sandbox' (the middle east) doing what I do best! Due to the sensitive nature of things, I won't elaborate as to what that might entail, as it will definitely upset some people. Anyway, there shouldn't be any hiccups with art or social media activity thanks to mobile technology (AKA laptops, tablets, my phone, etc. etc.), so don't fret on that aspect. I may just be more tired than normal, but that's speculative at best! Who knows, 'Big Blue' may make a return as she's become my major outlet for venting bottled-up emotions... and I'm totally okay with this because she's awesome to draw. HUAH. >:V

This is also a segue into my plans for 2017 -- All of the conventions I'd planned to attend have pretty much been thrown out of the window. My deployment may or may not actually overlay with the dates of the conventions, so to keep my window vague to outside [possible nefarious] parties, I've canceled ALL events I had scheduled for the next year. Just safety and security on my part! My PCS window is wide open right now anyway, so I could end up stationed at a new base next year, too, which just compounds things. Yaaay, moving... :v

Alrighty then, I think I've relayed most of what I wanted to share. If any of you have questions, concerns, or what have you regarding anything please toss a note my way or grab a hold of me on one of my other sites! :D
I wish you guys all the best!


Boom, baby!

When you open up commissions again, how much would my character cost do you think?

It will depend on what kind of commission you're interested in along with what changes I'll be making to my ToS/Price guide (heavy changes inbound).
I cannot give you an accurate estimate at this time, I apologize!

Ah, sorry, I just don't have time to come up with concept ideas for others (I barely have time for myself). ^^; Best of luck though!

Hi! I was wondering if it's okay if I kinda use some of the style in your reference sheet. By the way, love the art! La la la la

Go for it! As with anyone, all I ask is that it isn't 100% the same. :>
