OHMEHGERD my 10yr Anniversary on DA is next month! (Same account, active the entire time) WHAT SHOULD I DO?! Maybe give away an original page of Naor? Maybe do an auction that goes towards my internship next summer? A contest? GUYS I NEED IDEAS

Changes to Patreon and other thingsSo as a warning to everyone,
I have taken down my creator page on Patreon.
I do not feel I am posting as much as I should, nor that I really have the time or energy to manage it right now. For anyone who I support, you will still get your pledges from me. I didn't totally disable my account, I only took down my creator side. I'll remain a patron.
This is in an effort to become more active here. I have stopped posting most here because I was trying to post everything Naor and WIP wise to Patreon. It will be much easier and hopefully stir up interest again as I post here more often. I haven't abandoned dA, I just became exclusive to Instagram and Patreon mostly. That will change.
DeviantART, while changing a lot in the last few years, is my largest following anywhere and it isn't fair to give you guys the cold shoulder like I have. I have mailed out a lot of what I owe to people, but I am still working on all the main I have.
In addition I also have a LEAVE and START date for my internsh
Naor Anniversary! 8 yearsSOOOO
February 14th has a VERY special meaning to me
February 14th was when my first project containing Ahk, my main character from Naor was due. I always have used this date as the first day I started working on Naor because that is the day my professor asked me to write more about him and his story. So I have been, for like, 8 years now!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?!!
8 LONG years on this project. Granted it is in the middle of a reboot
and conversion over to a manga, but hey, it has made a lot of
strides in only 8 years. I have a lot more updates on that, but I
at least wanted to get that out there.
If you don't know what Naor is, it is a comic/manga I have been working on for many years. It is essentially a murder mystery and supernatural themed story where the two main characters are not even human! I really enjoy making the series and if you want to read what I have done, please go here: https://ahkward.deviantart.com/gallery/58799853/Naor-Comic-Pages
Please note I only started maki
Life updateHEEEEEY guys! I'm still here, still alive, mostly. xnx
Here is stuff I will cover here:
1. Life update
2. Commission update
3. Naor update REALLY IMPORTANT
1. LIFE UPDATE
So I mentioned in a previous journal that I was promoted to Assistant Manager at my IRL job. That has pretty much taken over my life like I feared it would. I worked on every single freaking Holiday:
NewYear's Eve and
I finally got my first real day off on Wednesday the 10th, however now that I have health insurance I spent it mostly sleeping and at the hospital getting a general wellness check. They found some stuff and there are more tests tomorrow, so hopefully it isn't anything to worry about! lol I'm certainly not worried. XD
However that said I sincerely apologize for being absent. Now that the holiday season is over I can finally get some breaks. Yes, breaks AFTER the holiday because I didn't get days off, not eve
Moved!Not accounts, just houses.
So I unexpectedly moved October 21st and 22nd. I was NOT prepared in any way whatsoever, so for the last week or so I have been scrambling trying to get all of my stuff to my new place and get unpacked and back to work on commissions and comics. I didn't do a very good job. ROFL
1. YES, Naor Chapter 2 is late. Sorry about that! I had planned to get the three pages I was supposed to release on the 23rd done and posted. Well that didn't happen. I haven't been able to really draw much due to the large amount of overtime lately. I WILL post new pages on MONDAY, IDK if I have to not sleep this weekend at all! OTL
2. I know 10 to 20 hours a week of overtime isn't very much compared to some people, but between unpacking and working overtime, I haven't had the energy when I get home (shifts are 10hrs of standing with NO breaks). For some fucking reason South Dakota doesn't have mandated breaks (not even for lunch). like WTF? How can this be true?
3. Commissions.... u
StreamWould anyone want to watch me stream doing commissions and then some comic pages? I have 4 digital commissions left and then 2 comic pages which are half done.
I would use picarto and might start in about an hour...
Life updateSorry I didn't update last week with a new comic page or upload any commissions! I am super busy as my step dad had major arm/shoulder surgery. I've been helping take care of him the last two weeks as his right arm has been pretty much useless.
I also fell down my stairs (21 steps) on Tuesday morning on my way downstairs to get ready for work. I am ok, not broken or anything as far as I can tell, but bruised up my arm back and butt. XD Super lucky, but I am pretty slow moving right now. Sitting is hard since I banged up my lower spine/tailbone really badly. I don't have insurance, so I can't go to a doctor and get checked or get medicine. So I'll be a bit slower to heal. Sitting to draw REALLY hurts right now, so I'm gonna focus on scanning stuff this weekend.
Thanks for patience. I have a TON of things to upload. I have the rest of a sketchbook commission (finally done for King), updates for the other sketchbook commissions. Some digital commissions and 2 comic pages as well as an upd
Art for Membership?Hey guys, I had an issue with my rebilling and DA is not accepting my card for whatever reason. I am in the process of getting it back.
Can anyone get me a membership for like a week or more? I would use my paypal but I just withdrew it all. It will take probably days to figure this out.
Whoever gives me any length of membership will get a free sketch or something in return. I need my page up since I use dA for business affairs. (Depending on gw much you give I will happily do something extra special and custom!)
Or I can send you the money for it / pay you back!
Please please and thank you!

Win Posters! Learn Nothin'!
Who likes posters? Well, everyone, duh! Who likes pony posters? Everyone again! Who likes free pony posters? Stop asking stupid questions, that answer should be obvious!
Last night I decided to head back to Walmart and pick up Twilight Sparkle and her awesome car…and with it a few more posters! In the spirit of friendship and stuff, I’m passing my obsessive completionist need for a fleet of pony vehicles onto you!
I have one set of four posters including the much-coveted Equestria map that I am going to give away!
In order to win one of these suitable-for-framing works of art, you have two options. I will be giving away two posters in an art contest, and two in a raffle. The art contest, I fear, is blatanty self serving. I want pictures, pictures of my pony! To enter the art contest, draw a picture of my pony doing something- worshipping Trixie, drinking beer, bare-knuck

Design Guide - RainmarksClick here to go back to the Design Guide Handbook
Markings and guides belong to Tokotas
Rainmarks are short, rain like streaks of color that can appear lighter or darker than the base coat.
They can be singular, or form brindle-like patterns on small areas of the body.
Rainmarks will always have a sharp, tapered edge, never blurry or blunt-ended.
Rainmarks can occur on most areas of the body except the muzzle and legs.
Minimum / Maximum
At minimum, there should be at least 2-3 prominent rainmarks, while on the
right you can see the maximum amount. Placement and shape may vary!
