Since it's been literally a year since I posted anything I might as well put up a little something to show I'm still alive.

I've been working at a full-time job since the start of this year. It's taken out a large chunk of my free time and the pay is decent enough to where I don't need to scramble to do commissions. So, due to a lot of my previously-free time being taken up, and with being tired after working for the day, I haven't really pushed myself to get new pictures finished.

I do still draw but it's been mostly sketches. There's a few I like quite well, actually (including a Renamon pic I drew in the last week) so I can still make sketches I'm happy with.

Unfortunately, though, I don't like how my computer coloring has been turning out lately and I'm probably rusty. I'm starting to learn Photoshop in place of SAI. SAI has its shortcomings and PS is obviously much more widely supported and recognized, and it works better with my Surface Pro 3 tablet. Speaking of, I bought the SP4 pen for it (which is compatible) and while I like it better than the SP3 stylus, I'm still not used to tablet drawing at all. My coloring style is still very archaic and I never fully grew out of the mentality of painstakingly drawing 1px bezier curves with a mouse around scanned sketches and flood filling in the space between them. I want to integrate my tablet more into the process and reduce the amount of time I have to spend to make a picture I'm happy with.

So, will I post new art? Probably, but I don't have a time frame. I have lots of ideas to do bigger things beyond just standard pinup fare (short comics, themed image sets, etc) but I haven't done much to put those ideas into practice. Hopefully soon I can get back into it.

Some rat bastards have been selling people's work on
I found your work on there, sadly.
If you can find the time, REPORT THE ART
Just type in someone's dA username in the search bar. If there's any results, have them take it down.

I really like the style of your art, it's very detailed and pleasing to look at, your one of my favorite anthro artists. However I really feel like some of your art needs a mature content filter on it, especially the more, well, "skimpy" pieces of art. Otherwise this page is really good! Keep up the good work!
