I wasn't planning on making a wallpaper for March, in fact I had forgotten all about it. Then tonight I finished a commission featuring The New-American Centurion, and I realized it would make a hot wallpaper!
I was out shopping for moving supplies, and I saw THIS on the shelf at Target!!! I had NO IDEA!!! It's about damn time!!! This cartoon is where the new golden age of animation started. And I'm SO GLAD the description makes that point clear! "Born in creative anarchy," it says. SO PERFECT!
I watched from the sidelines today as Angela Ryan did a bondage shoot for BondageDivas.com! Orias Bastet did the photography and Evelyn Rose helped out. As much fun as it is to spend time with people I like, photo shoots are really boring if you're not involved. I fell asleep on the couch.
Those of you who've been following the progress of Ultra Fem episode 1 will know that it's due in late February. Well... it's going to be late. I'll be sending out an email to the customers who have prepaid for it.
Yes, that's right! This weekend, I finished my 50th commission drawing since Jan 1! That's almost a drawing a day! There are published sketches and multiple versions of many of them, so it could be MORE, depending on how you count them. I'm learning how to manage my time better, and I'm slowly hacking away at the larger commissions which are languishing in the right sidebar. And with each daily commission, I'm learning new tricks and getting faster, which will make the bigger ones SO much better. I may be able to make more time for them if things go well next month. So stay tuned!
LOL! Here's a preview of a new commission I'm working on. The final piece will be a lot... weirder! And it's only the first in a series of three! Janine is, of course, from Ghostbusters, and Irma is from Mutant Turtles. I'd never heard of Irma before. Funny how she looks exactly like that one Chipmunk girl?
If you've been watching my commission lists, you've no doubt noticed how much variety there's been lately. Lots of new directions, and characters I've never drawn before. And fewer she-males! There have been a number of anime requests, two Dragonballs, a Ben 10, some recent game characters, and now a Ghostbusters/TMNT mash-up! Variety is always good! Please keep them coming! ***
Okay, okay, I know, I'm over-using Diana Knight... but this character was MADE for her! Bayonetta is some kind of new video game, I think. Anyway, I got a new commission request for her last week.
This isn't even the finished piece. Tonight I'll attach her tits to a huge milking machine. My customers really, really like that. (I have another commission coming up where I think I'll use Angela Ryan's face!)
This great piece was done by PabloTovar at hArtists.net. He had this idea of creating badges for a fictitious hA-CON, and asked other artists to volunteer their characters to appear in the collection. Making Ultra Fem his 'Head of Security' was a great idea! And so was the bikini!
The new commissions have picked up a lot in February, and I'm glad to have them! January was SLOW, and it scared me!! But Feb has been awesome! I owe a great big THANK YOU to all of my customers!
Coming up... I have an expensive move coming up at the end of this month. Sooner than I expected. I've been saving up for it since last fall, and thanks to my customers, I have what I need. It will be almost impossible, though, for me to do any drawing in the first half of March, so every little extra bit will help.
What YOU can do... The most helpful thing that all of you can do is to buy a copy of the upcoming Ultra Fem #1! It's only $6.50! A lot less than a commission, so everybody can afford it! Not only will it help me finish the book, it'll help me get by during the times when I don't have my equipment.
Mystery traffic — This is interesting. Most of today's traffic BY FAR came from forum.hentaipalm.com and wwoecforum.com, neither of which I've ever posted on. Somebody must be uploading my art there! That's fine with me! If somebody can find it, please show me where it is!
This commission was a lot of fun! I think you can see why!
The customer originally described a complicated conveyor belt machine for his "Futanator 6000" device, but I was like, no no, that's way too complicated! Just make it a brundlefly booth, with steam everywhere! he liked that idea better. And I could skip a ton of drawing and use the movie poster as a background. MUCH better idea!
Oh, yes, that's Diana Knight's face, in case you were wondering. She laughed! I believe I have introduced her to a whole new audience.
