Just giving a nice little art-centric update since it's been a while writing one of them.
Things have fairly been busy on my end. Moving, Cryamore, Business, etc. Cryamore's going well; I'm at the computer slaving away, but it's fun work and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I'm also thinking of creating a new art book (separate from the Cryamore art book) next year that will catalogue a crapload of sketches and lineart. Might host a KS for it or something, I dunno. Haven't thought that far ahead yet.
We recently moved into a new place a couple of months back. Long story short: it was a hairy situation, but we're all good. Though we've got our basement flooded about a month in (water heater broke), and some stuff got damaged. Lost a few art books (bye-bye Dragon's Crown and Code of Princess art book) but other than that, everything else was ok. I also lost a few prints; they got damaged in the flood. Speaking of prints…
I've been getting a few emails of those who have yet to receive their prints they ordered in the past few months. If you're reading this and have yet to receive your order because of whatever circumstances, please email me at email@example.com and let me know what you've ordered and we'll get that squared away. I've been so busy that I haven't had time to address them, so I'm taking the time out now to get it out the way. Also, I will have an assistant to help further on future orders.
Speaking of prints, I've added a few more to my store
They're up in preorder phase now, (currently getting them printed) so if you want some fresh new prints, go and act now! (I usually only do one run of things and never reprint, so… yeah.)
And few of them are on sale for cheap for like $5 a pop right now (whatever's left that didn't get damaged in the flooding), so they need to go!
STREAM SKETCH RAFFLING
I'm moving my main art streaming on over to PICARTO.TV, a stream service JUST for artists! They're also going to have a Multistreaming feature available, so you'd be able to catch me,
do some triple threat streaming! That service will be available sometime next week.
I'm also going to try to make a little money on the side, by hosting weekly Stream Sketch Raffles, probably every Friday or something (I'll get back to you on that). I watched Legoman do this and it seems like a cool idea! You enter a raffle to pick a request at a reasonably low price, and you get a simple drawing. Simple as that. Haven't settled on the price yet, but I'll be sure it is low enough to not kill anyone's wallet. It'll be a nice inexpensive way to support me and my work, if you even like me that much… LOL
I'll also be getting back to wrapping up a couple of commissions that some have got from me in the past few months, but I'm also allowing myself to do a commission a week from now on. With that said, my commissions are now back open! BUT-!!! I won't take a whole crapload of work this time. Pacing of self must be done. If you have a really expensive (meaning, taking a lot of time on my behalf) request, I may not take it. Also, if you have a character (original or fanart) that I may not feel like drawing, then I may deny it. Nothing against you or the character, but I have to pick my battles carefully. I mean, who likes random battles anyway? They can be annoying… especially in FF4.
You can find my updated commission information here.
and follow all instructions
before sending an inquiry; it makes it easier for me to reply back to what you want. If your request is over-complicating, I'll probably just end up denying it. My time is very
little these days and I need to use each minute decisively.
Uhhhhhm… what else… Oh yeah, so if you have any questions for me regarding any other issues, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will do my best to satisfy you in that regard.
, those Esmy
figures are flying off the shelves! Don't forget that they are one-shot printed as well. You might be able to find one on eBay later after the game is released or something… For like, 3x the original price… LOL. So if you want Esmy or Bliss on your desk, check the Cryastore out and order them!
That is all for this update, and I bid you farewell until the next big one!
Also, I've gotten quite the amount of new watchers here on my dA and Tumblr. Welcome! I hope to continue to hold your interest as long as I possibly can.
