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
10 Yr Anniversary in November
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
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
EXTENDED Design Contest! [CLOSED]Hello... Is it a contest you're looking for?
Well, you see, me and Berry have shipped her OC and Sunrise for years, and we never got a legit family for them... So, because it was her
birthday a few days ago, I decided to make a contest for it! I hope lots of you join, so we can have a lot of Bunrise kiddos!
-Don't make them too similar to the parents.
-If you were to loose, I still get to keep the character you created.

Collective Feature #20Updates:
Firstly, I want to thank the anonymous user who gave me a 3-month Premium Membership. I don't use the features much, but I like the journal themes, so thank you!
Secondly, I wanted to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday! Being at college, nothing excited happened except classes and work, but I did get to help out at a dodgeball tournament our club hosted, so that was kinda fun.
Thirdly, who else enjoyed the 70=80 degree temperatures and gorgeous weather on Friday + Saturday? Cause I know I did! It was short lived (back to rainy, windy, and cool) but I hope you all made the most of it! I drove up to Teatown Reservation to see if there was any growth, but there was very few. They opened up their "Wildflower Island" to the public and I hope to go back in a couple of weeks when things begin to grow more.
I already know it's going to be one of those weeks because this morning I burnt a finger on the

2018 COMMISSIONS GOALS
This year is going to be filled with drawings and awesome new goals to achieve
Comissions: Opened o.o!HELLO THERE
YES! I'M MAKING COMMISSIONS. BILLS TO PAY, NEED TO SURVIVE LOL
In all seriousness, I wanna start to make commissions. After talking to Alyssa (walkingmelons on youtube) about prices, I'm leaning towards following her policy. So if you want to commission me here are some details:
A fully colored digital drawing (like this one): $40 (may charge extra if there are more than 2 characters)
A fully colored digital drawing only focusing on the upper body part: $30
Since I'm just starting with the commission thing I wanna take it slowly and patiently, maybe in a future I'll be able to draw only sketched or simple colored drawings which will be cheaper, but for now I'll focus on what I know I can do better. If you are interested, send me a note named "Commission" and then add what you want. I'm thinking I can only take maybe 2 commissions per week to get started, when I get the hang of it I'll probably be able to take more in.
As for the time, it depends. If I'm inspired I might jus
