Last bump I promise!!! You guys are gonna keep me busy this summer I am PUMPED!!!!

Do you remember when I had self-control

.....

that was a trick question



ART TRADES!!!!!!!

I open once a year or so, so I'm going to probably be taking enough to keep me occupied for the next several months!!

I REALLY WANT!!! TO EXPERIMENT!!! AND GROW!!!! I wanna watch tutorials and do studies and make some cool stuff!! That's what art trades are for!!!!

OKAY QUICK




Bullet; Blue  You can pick whoever you want from here for me!  Everyone will also eventually be on my ToyHouse too with more refs and info, but I still gotta put a few kids up there.    

Bullet; Blue  EQUAL TRADES *ONLY*. If I get another colored sketch in exchange for a full illustration I will KILL a man.  I expect you to invest the same amount of effort as I do!!!

:bulletblue: I know I usually do full illustrations, but I'm game for ANYTHING!! Headshots, page dolls, full-bodies, box BGs, sketches, anything!!! Except pixels please do not ask me to attempt pixels.

Bullet; Blue   I don't require you to finish your half before I start mine! THOUGH if you finish your half before I do, you become my top priority!!

:bulletblue: Please don't wait on me to finish my half before you start yours!!!  Though if you reeeeally don't want to start until I finish, please let me know so I can keep it in mind!!

Bullet; Blue  TIMING.  I don't care at all. I prefer my trades to be no-stress and low-key for both me and you, so take all the time you need!  Though again, the faster you finish, the faster I finish.  <__<

Bullet; Blue  I reserve the right to still make my comics, do my collabs, color my lineart commissions, make personal art, whatever, without being harassed!!!  I *PROMISE* I won't forget you, and noting me every week will just annoy me >___>. THOUGH you're welcome to casually and intermittently ping me for progress updates! That's totally fine!



TL;DR

Plz comment with what you want from me, who you'd like me to draw, and maybe??? an example of what you'll do for me??? that's not necessary but having everything in one place is efficient and I love that


OH AND AS ALWAYS if I don't note you it's totally not you or your art don't ever feel bad!!! about your art!!!  your art is amazing!!!!!! ..... and I might note you in a few weeks anyway



I will ping this journal a few times over the next few days I apologize in advance!!!!!!

SO HI my poor macbook pro's been through the ringer this month my poor girl.  it had some weird problem where it would freeze and become unresponsive maybe 10 minutes after start-up, and I tried to muscle through it for a couple weeks, but it eventually started restarting on its own and then would restart the Freezie so I gave up and took it to a 3rd party electronics repair store.

They took it apart and found an entire cat's worth of fur and a penny inside, and said that was the problem and that an extensive cleaning would fix it.  I was like 'eeehhhh' but whatever I'm not super tech-savvy so I let them go for it. SO a week and a $100 cleaning later, the problem *wasn't* fixed, so they didn't charge me, but I was back to square one, just with a clean computer. 

I eventually did all the diagnostic stuff with Apple, and I FINALLY think its fixed after I wiped and reinstalled the OS!!!  I needed someone to hold my hand through that because erasing my entire HD on my own was too much for me lmao

And the cool part is that it's running REALLY WELL now because it's all clean inside!!  AND I broke out my beads after 6 years AND MADE SOMETHING COOL!!! I'll hopefully post pics tomorrow!!!  I've had to mostly gut my inbox, so I apologize for all the faving and running.   I'll catch y'all on the flip side, I promise :heart:

BUT YES HOPEFULLY ART WILL BE COMING SOON!!!

My second job is going on the back burner after this week, so *HOPEFULLY* I'll be able to get some extra drawing time in!!

I've got a few collabs I'm working on, as well as a couple of trades and a commission or two!!  I finished the page AFTER the next page of TLA, but the next page is like half-done maybe??? I'm going to try and finish it this weekend!!!! I need to update my to do list widget badly omg. I've been trying to improve with my sketches and anatomy on the side, but I feel like progress on that front is kind of meh but WE SHALL SEE!!!



ONE MORE THING I'd love to open for some summer art trades in a few weeks!!!!  I'm gonna try to get some examples together for those of you who won't want to do massive illustrations and stuff lmao.

Thanks for being patent with me!!

BUT YES I've wanted an FAQ since forever and what better time than NOW??? So if you've ever had a burning question about my art or comic or process or whatever you want, let me know and I'll answer it!

hi guys!!

So I'm up to working like 80 hours some weeks, and I'm training for three half-marathons and a Spartan race, and the Spartan race is going to kill me haha.

But also I've been just really bummed out and increasingly frustrated by DA recently, and I think I have to take a few steps back.

 Idk I just wanna take a couple weeks to color stuff with Becca and some of those old lineart commissions I have gathering dust.

KNOWING ME I'll wake up next week going I CAN'T WAIT TO WORK ON ART TRADES!!! 8D and get back to work, but on the off-chance that isn't the case, that's what's going on.

I hope you're all having a good weekend!! :heart:

Busy Slow No Art June hi

FRIENDS!!!

HELLO!!!

So basically, I'm taking almost 2 weeks off in July for SUMMER FUN, but before that happens, I'm working my butt off in June so I can have MONEY for SUMMER FUN!!

Which means I'm taking on a ton of hours from both my jobs!  Not only that, but I started a new workout regimen that has my sorry ass in the gym 6 days a week, AND I'm training for a couple half marathons I've got coming up this fall.  I discovered a month ago that HIIT ≠ endurance running. Oh my god.

I'm still working on art!!! I want to try and plop out a couple things for the summer raffle over on :iconfaelidh:, and I've still got a couple of commissions/trades and a LOT of collabs coming down the chute!!

PLUS BecSparrow and I are hard at work making pages for TheLastAysse and AcrossedWorlds.  So I'm doing that too!!

So I'm HOPING that there'll still be lots of art from me!

But ALSO if you drew me something or left me a comment or want me to see something or comment on something, give it a few days!  I try and set aside a few hours a week where I take my laptop to Panera and gut my DA box, and I still plan on doing that!

Sooooo yes.

This is a really long-winded way of saying "I'll be slow but still here!"

LOVE YOU!!!

Open for ONE full illustration commission!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 2, 2015, 1:06 PM
l wut


     
Hi guys!!

Money's a little scarce until my next paycheck, so I thought I'd open for a single full illustration commission!

The base price is $120
Anthro is +10
Wings are +20
A second character is +50%!

You'll get a complex full illustration with an environment background, painted shading, all that good stuff! Examples would be:

Under the Maples by Enaxn Outlands by Enaxn Mountain Exploration by Enaxn MISTER PRINCESS by Enaxn
etc!

Turn-around shooouldn't be too bad! A few weeks maybe? I'm cycling through my owed stuff pretty efficiently! And I should be able to have thumbs out on Wednesday!

Aaand yes comment if you're interested! I haven't opened for commissions since 2013, and won't do so again until at least midsummer! And then the prices will probably be higher sooooo yes here's your chance if you want it!

And please don't complain about the prices. I can already make WAY more just picking up overtime, I just thought this would be more fun >_____>

ANYWAY

HI.

While I'm awkwardly waiting for these fine men to build me a sofa, I wanted to say HI and THANK YOU FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES!!!!!  I'll reply to everyone properly this afternoon hopefully, but in the meantime LOOK AT ALL THE FINE THINGS I GOT:  Commish: Switchback Ref by BecSparrow Switchback by Ryzakier Switchback Leather badge by Illuminaiae SQUISHIE BISHIE BOY by Junryou-na-KokoroLA

I will be leaving you all GIGANTIC COMMENTS ASAP.  Hopefully also later today!!

My birthday was okay! Worked one job from 6AM-2:30P, and my other job from 6:30PM to 6:30AM the next day and then my first job again from 12:30P to 9:00P HAHAHA my soul, but I forced my coworkers to have a potluck and you guys blew up my phone all day so it was awesome!! :heart:


AND YES ART FROM ME I draw things occasionally.

So basically, during the summer I can function super well on 4-6 hours of sleep, indefinitely.  But the flip side of that is that during the winter I require, like, 8-10, otherwise I'm a miserable zombie.  I've spent several years experimenting on how to make this better, but I don't really think I can? I thought that having two jobs and being super active and into fitness would help, but instead it just made it worse hahaha.

SO basically what that means is that I am indeed working on art!! However, it won't come out at the volume that it does during the other 3 seasons.  But I'm still plugging away! So if I owe you something, never be afraid to ask what's up! I also post WIPs on my Artsy Tumblr, so feel free to look there too!

Aaaand yes.  I think the sofa's almost built.


THANK YOU ALL AGAIN YOU'RE PERFECT :heart:

Wacom Pen Nib HELP!!!!! (JK I FIXED IT)

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 5, 2014, 10:50 AM
l wut

EDIT Fixed it by taking it apart and putting it back together several times for an hour.  And by being sad. IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE. Or something.  THANK YOU!!!!!


AHHHHH FRIENDS HELP ME.

So last night I was doing my drawing thing, and I noticed that my pen nib was *way* short, so I replaced it.  And everything was great for like 3 minutes, and then I noticed that frequently PS would think I was drawing when I was just hovering over the tablet.  And I went "uuuugh" and took it apart and put it back together.

So now when I put the pen nib in the end of the pen, it just..... goes away.  There's absolutely no nib sticking out of the pen.  It's a brand new nib, so it should be at full length.

I don't know if this is normal either, but the little coil-y bit that sits on the end and holds the nib won't sit properly in its little holder.  It's always kinda ugly and crooked.  But I've never taken my pen apart, so for all I know this might be how it always it.

But yes.

Now I can't draw at all.

And I am very sad.

HELP?????

If this is still up, I'm still goin'! WOO!

Internet. BACK. And Art Status!

FINALLY!!!
After four months of spending my days at Panera and staring at my phone in sadness, I now have basic cable and *delightfully* fast internet. HAH.  I've missed a lot of gorgeous art over the summer, so I'm trying to catch up where I can. BUT YES I'll hopefully be a little more active now!


ART STUFF:

Trades
As of this morning, I'm done with all my active owed art trades! There are a few old trades where we set up a trade, and then neither of us did our parts.  Which is obviously totally fine, but I'm considering those to be Inactive, and am leaving them alone for now.  If you're one of those people though, gimme a shout if you want to pick that back up!

Otherwise, trades will remain on an "Ask first" basis, as I'm enjoying not having those weigh on me.  But on the other hand I *LOVE* art trades, so I'll probably crack and go looking for more soon.  So definitely don't be afraid to ask, but also don't be surprised if the answer is no! It has nothing to do with you and everything to do with my deep drive to finish my To Do list by 2015!

Commissions
Those are next! Now that I've got internet and the ability to look up refs and stuff whenever I want, I'm far more comfortable with finally tackling them, so if you're waiting on a commission, expect stuff from me within the next couple weeks! Thank you for being so patient with me!

A few people have asked about commissions, and the status of them is kinda like trades? If you have a cool idea, feel free to approach me about it, but again, please don't be offended if I turn you down!  After this commission run is over, I'm going to raise my prices a *teeny* bit and maybe open in small batches?  Not sure what the plan is yet, but first I'm finishing my owed stuff before taking any new, so one step at a time!

Other Stuff
I've got some collabs and raffle things to do, and those'll come after commissions, so maybe in the November area?  I also want to spend November re-building page caches for TheLastAysse and AcrossedWorlds.  So that'll be my focus then.  October is Commission Month, and November is Other Stuff and Comic Month..... tentatively.


BUT YES tl;dr I have internet again and I'm working on owed stuff. YAY!!

LOVE YOU FRIENDS :heart:

ALSO would anyone want me to Livestream??? Since I have this super-fast internet and all.  >__>

Hi friends!!

Just dropping in to say hi and to happily say that I've moved for a SECOND time in the last 3 weeks LOL.  BUT this new place has room for me to set up my workstation again! The first place I moved to didn't really have a place for me to crank on art at all, which is why I haven't had anything to post recently.  I don't mind the occasional drawing-on-my-bed session, but I really need a nice big desk to function. But now my desk is back YES.

HOWEVER I don't have wifi yet.  We're going to accost the people that live above us and offer them money for their wifi password, and if that fails, we'll set up in the next couple weeks or so hopefully.  I'm spending a fortune at Panera though so hopefully soon ahaha. 


BUT ANYWAY!! I've missed a whole lot in the past two months during this horrible summer I've been having.  I've got all the stuff done for me in its own tab and will have a LONG glorious comment session once I've got wifi back.  But if you guys have anything you want me to see or read, leave it in the comments section and I'll try and get to it!

The amount of owed work I've accrued is *horrific* lolol, so I'll be glad to finally get back to work on it!  I've also got Silva-Magna, AcrossedWorlds, TheLastAysse, and an awesome comic commission to make pages for! But I'm hoping I'll get back into the groove and pound out a bunch of things so I can take a few summer trades and collabs before all you talented kids go back to school <______<


Aaaand yes that's it.  Tl;dr, I've moved twice, still don't have wifi at home, will be back soon, leave a message at the beep.

BEEP.
