I am alive. Have been picking away at costume work, Avarice work, and stuff for random people on the internets. Offering above: Delton Wildfire, an icon commission, a sketch commission (heh, Boob Trek: The Bulbous Frontier), and a WIP of a painting commission... of a monkey who killed Palpatine and took his place as the Sith Lord. Yes.

Welp, today the world recognizes me as being a year older than I have ever been (and now I'm even older, and now I'm even older, and now I'm older still). As a birthday present to myself I decided not to do any commission work today, and to instead doodle and paint whatever I feel like to my heart's content, something I do not manage very often.
I created a new canvas of arbitrary dimensions in Paint Tool SAI and went at it for several hours - the result thus far appears to me my cat, my boyfriend and I as our patron trolls, ponies, and wolves. And a sunrise. I flipping adore painting sunrises/sunsets/anything involving dramatic lighting and clouds. Or dramatic lighting in outdoor scenes in general. So. Relaxing. This was a fantastic plan. So much fun!
Now for a little sleep! Then I shall have another go at a fresh canvas awhile, until the boy gets off work. After that he intends to cook me dinner, because he is simply the best there is. Also we may go to Toys R Us and roll around in small plastic ponies, followed by going to Legions to roll around in Magic cards. Because other than baking yourself a cake for no specific occasion and proceeding to treat it as a week's work of breakfast food, that is what adulthood is all about. Clearly.
Best birthday conceivable? Seems likely.

I am getting better at drawing ships. This modified Mark-II Viper/ME Normandy hybrid is my third requested in a stream commission as of late. It's interesting how commission subject matter comes in waves such as this, where one person asks you to illustrate a certain creature or object, then everyone else realizes that you are capable of such and also asks you for similar images.
Also, have a puppy. PUPPY SO HAAAPPY. I enjoying painting icon commissions. :)

Since my last post, other than stream work (fox and starship above are examples from recent streams; lots of that sort of stuff) I have been doing a whole bunch more character and iconography work for Avarice Industries, a tabletop RPG in-progress which is currently up for funding on Kickstarter! Consider pledging to the game. I am rather excited about the enthusiastic response it has received thus far!
