Heyyy guys! Thank you to everyone who participated in the raffle, and congratulations to the winners. Anyway, this journal is just going to be a little update on me, commissions, and the comic just to kinda let you guys know what's going on.
I'm still slowly chipping away at commissions, sorry none of them are uploaded yet for you waiting commissioners, but I don't want to upload them until they're done and done well and some days I just can't draw and I don't feel right uploading a crappy commission. So I haven't forgotten about your commissions/prizes, I will get them up as soon as possible, and as always, I appreciate your support.
The comic is going well. I did upload a bit last week, then went dead towards the weekend. I was with my family this weekend and didn't have time to do any drawing. As I live with my boyfriend two hours away from my family, whenever I go to see them I like to spend all my time with them. Other than that, I checked my script, we are nearing the end of The East Land Chronicles, which I am looking forward to as I would like to get back to Uru's Reign. I can't wait to get back into the story of Scar. I've been writing the script like crazy and I have the script written up to about the half way marker of Scar's Reign. So Uru's Reign Part 2 and Mufasa's Reign are completely written, it's just waiting to get to draw the story. Also, since the end of The East Land Chronicles is on the way, I will probably have a cover contest for the East Land Chronicles, so get your idea caps on!
Personally, I'm doing fine in life. I'm a bit financially unstable at the moment, but mentally I'm doing better, I'm trying to loose weight, and things are going ok. Having to pay for your own bills, gas, and food kinda sucks, so if you ever feel up to commissioning me that would be appreciated. They're always open with the understanding that sometimes it will take a while for me to get to your commission, especially with the list of commissions I have to do now. Hmmm... I re-homed the ferrets. I wasn't giving them enough attention and it wasn't fair on them. Widget, my cat, is doing well. And my doggy Roxy is hyper but lovable. Silly lab. The boyfriend is good, we're doing good, work is going well. So...Over all, I'm probably at the 75% happiness scale which is a lot better than it was a month or two ago.
Oh, also, on a unrelated note to all of this... I seem to be getting a flux of trolling lately. I think I've been trolled four times in the past month which is a lot for me. But oh well. Anyway, If you guys see a hateful comment on my stuff, journal or gallery I'm going to politely ask you not to engage them. The best way to handle a troll is to ignore them. Though my tactic is usually to send them an image of my Troll Lion then block, I still ignore them in the long run. I ask you to do the same thing. Don't feed the trolls! I do appreciate that you guys care, but "white-knighting" as they call it, really just gives them satisfaction!
I've also had more cases of people stealing or using my art in incorrect ways. Most of the time, it's just a silly youngster ignorant to my personal rules and the rules of Deviant Art, but sometimes it's actual theft. I imagine this happens with a spike in popularity. SO, if you see my art used anywhere but on my galleries or groups PLEASE let me know.
