Late to the party. And too lazy to finish coloring… I’m a bad person.
But you guys are great. Just sayin’.
Can I vent in my secret grotto of an art blog? I’mma gonna vent in my secret grotto blog. I got like a hundred things to draw. I really don’t know why people keep coming to me for requests/commissions. Part me feels flattered that people want me to help…
I did a gift avatar/emote drawing for a guy on Twitch.
A while later, he and another streamer were trying to commission me for things, and I just… kinda crumbled.
I don’t know what I’d charge, how I’d charge… heck, I wouldn’t charge! I’m not good! Why do you want art from ME?!
But Rick, man… your at is good. I won’t flatter you too much and call it amazing… but I’m also lying when I say it’s only “good.”
And Bluey manages to do these odd poses and funky expressions that I can’t seem to do no matter how hard I try… you’re ability to draw weirdness exceeds mine. I accept this.
You’re both good.
You’re great, even.
And you may never realize it, or believe me, or anyone else when we say it… but you’re wonderful artists and you deserve every commission.
And even if what you draw for a request SUCKS in your mind… there’s an 80-90% chance that the person who requested it, ya know… likes your art, and won’t care if it’s the worst thing you’ve ever put out, because you drew it for them, and it’s all beautiful to them, because you made it for them. And that’s what matters.
My “gift art” that I do for other people is usually considerably better than anything else I draw, and although I HAVE done a couple of commissions… I ended up not charging the people after seeing/hearing their reaction and how much they loved it.
So I ain’t exactly the powerful voice of experience here… but I am good at giving useful advice. Even if I fail miserably to take my own advice…
Keep bein’ awesome, fellas.

Started on Mirror’s Edge recently and couldn’t help but draw a pony-fied version of Faith, the runner you play in the game.
I can’t say I’m happy with how it turned out, but I don’t hate it, so it’s good!
I’m not sure if you already know this, but I’ll submit this anyways.
So I was messing around on Twitter and I saw/remembered this tweet about a fox, living in Africa, that has BIG BAT EARS and (I’m not kidding) they actually exist:
I think I found your new pet! (Sorry for not posting…
Fennec Foxes, mate. Here to take over the world. One dastardly cute pup at a time…
Figured I should upload something, so why not a wizard, eh?
Following my logic there? No..? Good. Cause there wasn’t any logic there.
Made for TheFatWizard ala http://www.twitch.tv/thefatwizard
I spent the good part of 4 hours doing this simple drawing.
Mostly because I was massively distracted, tired, and hadn’t drawn anything in over a month…
… Other excuses are available. I’m still slow.
Carry on with your scrolling.
Ah yes… this… THIS must be the answer.
This is obviously the reason I’ve created these images! Yes, yes…
The only two things I’ve drawn recently (or at least “completed”).
I have no idea where my head is at, or when, but at least there are hats involved… and my favorite colors.
Sleep-deprived, sick, and with so much pain in my hand that I had to take frequent breaks and couldn’t even sip my tea… I did this.
Welcome back, Sparky.
I look forward to waiting months for another update, I really mean it.
Trust me, I’m patient.
I can wait.
I got this.
PLEASE DON’T TAKE THAT LONG TO UPDATE AGAIN! I LOVE HAVING YOU BACK ALREADY! *powerful sobbing*
(P.S. This is all my slightly morbid mind could think of when I saw the update.
Couldn’t get it outta my head, had to add it in.)
