There's a great sense of kinetic intensity to this one thanks to the particle effects. One can easily imagine a storm of nearly invisib...

The first chill of November has finally hit Texas. It's nice. Pleasant weather, good for relaxing after a lot of recent rains.

I had a CAT scan done recently due to what felt like an injury that wasn't healing. Turns out it was starting to heal, but I'm glad I got the scan done for peace of mind reasons. Still, it's left me saddled with a mean hospital bill, which means I'm going to need (NEED) to start real commission work after Thanksgiving, and until then I'm doing two large commissions for friends.

So finally it's come to the point where I've got a real reason to pursue art as a second job. This is... strangely cool, in a way. Also concerning, but I finally feel like life has thrown me an adult problem to solve. And I'm confident I can do it, since at least part of my hospital bill has already been paid for due to aid programs.

More details about commissions after Thanksgiving. Until then, I'm leaving on a brief trip to visit my mother with my brother.

Sketch practice begins! After I pack up to leave. Any additional time I have for the next few months will be spent finalizing the edits on my Swordpony fanfiction, or drawing more for this:

'Which cactus?' by Wisdom-Thumbs

EDIT: I have updated and clarified the "Which Cactus?" scenario to make it fairer and easier for any of the first 10 comments to guess a solution. There are three correct answers that I have planned for, but there may be others that surprise me. This scenario can branch out down different paths depending on your choice(s).

If nobody provides a guess before November 30, 2016, I will post the scenario to MS Paint Adventures but continue to upload any drawings that proceed it.

Sketchdumb - car trouble
I found an old sketchbook when I moved. It was barely used. This is my attempt to rectify that.

COMMISSION - The Fall Of Arkos
Don't piss off dragons.

I drew this for :icontim015:. It took a lot of time, and I learned a lot. In fact, it took so long that I had to stop myself from revising parts as I finished them, because each element of this piece taught a lesson. For one, eventually you just have to call something "done."

I'll upload the other commission later today.

Practice sketchdump - original art
Various heroes and legendary men from my fantasy world, which I hope to flesh out through webcomics and novels. A small amount of tree practice, too.

The guy in the bearskin shirt is a Velosian hunter who becomes invaluable in a steel-era war. The top row of sketches features other Velosians from the same war, arrayed along a ridge in formation with trees for cover.

The giant at top right and the "hoplite" fending off arrows at bottom center might be from the same era, and similar nations. Both eventually become myths.

Turns out this plz looks just like me: :iconcrybabyplz:

Hey there, I live on a farm in hot, hot, hot Texas, and in my spare time I'm the embodiment of sloth. We own cows. And tractors. Ugh.

I grew up on Calvin & Hobbes, graduated to Gears of War, found delight in just about everything fictional, and (fair warning) I just so happen to like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I've introduced my kid brother to all of these, and while he thinks Pinkie Pie is just about the funniest thing ever, he much prefers chainsawing his way through Locust hordes. Proud of that kid.

As for what I do, I've been drawing since the day I could hold a pencil. I also write for *BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IT*, and at the moment (decade?) I'm working on some fanfiction. One day I hope to start publishing novels and start my own low fantasy webcomic on the side.

Remember that if you don't like what you see, you can always look elsewhere.

Wow! Ok, I'm afraid I mostly just have MLP stuff up right now, but I'm glad to hear I had something to offer in return for how much I learned looking at your stuff.

I'm doing fine! Busy with various things, usually. Right now the rain has hit us so hard that I'm out of work!

I hope you got a boat in case it floods.
Or at least are in a safe spot where it can't get you bad.

Are you still working on your stories?

Indeed I am, if by "working" you mean "hobbling along."

Sorry for the late reply.
