DONT DO ANIMATION COMMISSIONSA PSA from mama draggin:
Unless you're some speed demon who can finish one in a few hours or a reputable company has enough money to pay you fairly DON'T DO IT. YOU'RE (most likely) GETTING UNDERPAID AF.
Everytime I come across a good animator here who prices their animations at abysmally low/slave wages, it physically pains me inside cause I know the arduous process of completing an animation. And when I'm talking about animation, I'm not talking about the 2-3 frame blinking gif, I'm talking about ANIMATION animation, meaning frame by frame, drawing the same character 8-24 times, fluid motion (not janky looking), colored and maybe even shaded, MAYBE EVEN WITH A BACKGROUND, KEEPING TRACK OF EVERY LINE AND COLOR.
I feel like animation is an extremely undervalued skill because not only do you need to know how to draw, you also need to know:
- how things move
- composition and framing
- camera move

Foxy Christmas :Anthro TimelapseHey everybody! I wanted to drop by and leave you this
link for a timelapse recording of the pinup I drew back in January.
I do these recordings pretty regularly for my Patreons, so if you want to see more,
please consider supporting my work ^-^
Eyyy MondaaaayyyHi everybody!
Last week I had a talk with Leslie Crislip Nielsen who is a writer and she gave me advice and suggestions for my story and how to work with it so it become good. I feel so much motivated to really organize everything so I've made a timeline on my wall where I can get a better overview. I've found some big plot-holes that I need to fill but I hope I can have it all sorted out before this month ends.
I'm happy to be working better now with TDN, it's just hard to also be hyped about Samurai Jack ;w; I marathoned all seasons and oh boy does season 5 take it all up a notch. I'm so excited about the show but I have to control my emotions so I don't drift off my priorities. Gotta work good on TDN!
Alas, I do need to find a job if I have to keep going so I've written to this writer who needs an animator/designer for some of her children books so that'll be exciting c:
Hope you guys are doing well, see you around!
something i have to discuss.okay, i really didn't want to make this journal, but there's been this gross misconception going around lately that i just can't ignore. i'm not one to get very opinionated but this issue is very close to my heart and has been affecting me deeply. it's time i broke my silence on it. i suggest you stop reading here if you can't deal with my somewhat extreme views on this subject.
MIKE WAZOWSKI BLINKS OKAY, HE FUCKING BLINKS, HE IS PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO WINK. WANNA KNOW WHY? LET ME LAY DOWN A JUICY FUCKING FACTOID FOR YOU, WINKING REQUIRES TWO EYES. THE LITERAL FUCKING DEFINITION OF WINKING IS THAT YOU KEEP ONE EYE OPEN AND SHUT THE OTHER. IT IS A VERIFIABLE TWO-EYED ACTION. HOW MANY EYES DOES THE LIL GREEN SON OF A BITCH HAVE? ONE. ONE GOD DAMN EYE. HE IS UNABLE TO WINK BY VERY DEFINITION. HE HAS NEVER WINKED (WUNK? WUNKED??), NOR WILL HE EVER, IN HIS ENTIRE SAD MISERABLE PATHETIC LIFE. HIS SOUL WILL LEAVE THIS GOD FORSAKEN EARTH NEVER KNOW
Update (computer)Good news! I have my computer back! As well as another pen, which means I can now get back to work!
The problem that had occurred was something to do with windows getting corrupted in an update, I am unaware of how this had happened, but luckily it wasn't the hard drive or something to do with the computer itself.
The tech guys reinstalled windows and backed all my files up, so I haven't lost any of my work
I do have to reinstall all of my programs again of course, but thankfully I didn't loose anything important like the last time my computer crashed. So now that I have it back, I will be getting back to things right away.
Thanks for the support on my last journal!
Which one?So, a few different options.
Dawn of Light will still be completed, don't worry about that. It's one of the few ideas that's stuck so strongly and persistently.
However, after that, I'll probably be posting some original works with Patreon chapter unlocks.
I'm not going to hide on Patreon like I've seen other artists do, stuff will still be posted here in due time. I've seen a few too many artists wall themselves behind the Patreon pay-walls and end up only using dA and other outlets for advertising, and some things I used to enjoy following are now rather inaccessible. It's depressing, and has been a part of my silence for a while, trying to figure out where I stand in a world where money is increasingly walling things off.
That being said, here are some options:
--Verdant Tale, where these two are from:
--Sands of the Windstorm
basically more dragons and a story about mythology in a unique world
--an extension of DoL
I'm iffy on this o
