Hi guys. Sorry for being silent for so long. Not really a journal writing person, me.
Just thought I'd update this a bit, tell you some things about what has been happening here lately.

As some of you might already know, I got a full-time job now, since November actually. It's eating quite a lot of my time, so that's why there are fewer submissions and even fewer words from me.
It's a bit sad to not have as much time for drawing as I used to, but I'm trying to make the best of it and try improving my skills more in the time that I have. For example, I started with some classes on Skillshare. It's fun, and a (comparatively) cheap way to learn new and interesting things! :) I'm really enjoying it, although (obviously) my project process is very slow. ^^;
My webcomic Behind the Obsidian Mirror on smackjeeves is still running, after a month long hiatus that I took over the end of the year to adjust to my new situation and just get some energy back. I don't intend to stop doing it. ;)
I'm sorry for making the winners of the contest wait, the commission for 2nd place is still in the works - I'm sorry, I've already put it at the top of my To-Do-list right behind the weekly BTOM page and am currently working on it at the highest possible speed! Kao Emoji-18 (Hai Hai) [V1] 

The increased income thanks to my job has given me the opportunity to purchase a PC (only had a laptop before) with two very nice screens, so that I can now work more efficiently - more space for drawing program and references etc - honestly, once you've tried working with two screens you never want to miss it again! :heart: (I feel decadentBunny Emoji-26 (Teehee) [V2])

Happy 2014! New year resolutions... mmh. Let's see.
I think I want to get better at drawing in general, that's a life-time goal; I want to travel to Ireland and do hiking (in the planning); I'd like to start some new projects, maybe another webcomic, or an illustration project, or refocus on something old and work on it more seriously (I have a lot of stories in the back of my (metaphorical) drawers). Kao Emoji-25 (You're the star) [V2]

Tomorrow (I think) the book which I worked on illustrating for the greater part of 2013 will be published - in print and as e-book! It's called "Last Days of P-Ship" and is written by Gordon Stainforth. It features 30 illustrations by me - the biggest illustration project I've worked on so far. It was an amazingly interesting experience, and I learned a lot thanks to the collaboration with Mr Stainforth.  Kao Emoji-20 (Content) [V1] If you're interested in Sci-Fi and liked books like "A Clockwork Orange" and "Brave New World", please check it out!

I think that's all atm. Have a nice day/week! back to work on the new BTOM page and commissions! Kao Emoji-63 (Cheers) [V4]

At the moment I'm having a lot of fun with my webcomic BTOM, and with collaborating with my author friend Shir0gane. :D
It seems like I have no consistent style and just do what I feel like at the time. :)
So don't expect to find anything awesome LOL.
That's the way I am. :icontotallyawesomeplz:
I'm TRYING to improve my skills, though. Yeah.

I cleaned up my gallery a bit, but there are still things here that are 6 to 7 years old, and they suck. Don't look at them.
Oh, and Llamas... don't ask. I don't give a damn. I don't want llamas by DrM94 Sheep are way cuter! :iconfeelingfreeplz:

It says you don't do requests. So you don't do commissions? Because it's Behind the Obsidian Mirror related.. But if you don't do requests.

Requests are free, commissions are made for money. It's not the same. I have often considered offering commissions, but since I don't have much time I'm not doing it at the moment. However, you are always free to inspire me ;) especially if it has to do with BTOM. Who knows, if I liike the idea and have a bit of time, I might draw it. ^^

It's actually an idea for a tattoo that I had wanted to get. I hate the way the aztecs drew the gods, and I love the way you draw them. So I had this vision of like Tezcatlipoca, Quetzalcoatl, Mictlantecuhtli and any other just sitting in a circle at a stand-off of sorts. Maybe Tez with a cut out heart in his hand. It was just an idea though. And I have no idea if you are comfortable with the idea of someone wanting your art tattooed on them or not.

I'm honoured that you would want my art on your body, but honestly I don't know if I could come up with a design cool enough and "tattooable" enough. Also, as much as I like the idea, I don't have much time for drawing these days and can't possibly make you any promises on that one. Sorry.
