Still trying to figure out what to add here...
* Those of you who only follow my regular artwork and not my Scraps... keep in mind that I might do more things like this in the future.

* I'm still working on :icondarkvigilante:'s commission. Yeah, it's taking a lot longer than expected. Truth be told, I haven't actually had much possibility to draw lately, but rest assured it should be done before August... or at least half-way into August... or before September... okay, I can't really make any promises at this point, I have to proceed one day at a time.

* I'm going to commission at least one person with the money I'm getting from my summer job, perhaps two. I hoped to place my first order way back in June but I've once again hit the same exact problem I had the last time I ordered art: I can't figure out what ask! Eventually, though, I'm sure I'll figure it out.

* Finished watching the remaining episodes of MLP:FIM last week. While not bad, they were pretty much milquetoast in quality. The Rarity/Spike episode had potential but I felt it never really got there. 'Equestria Games' was a travesty, as I expected it to center only on the actual sports event. We got glimpses of it and yes, there were gryphons present, but most of the episode was about Spike having stage fright until the plot required 'cool moment' at the end (which was cool, don't get me wrong). The two-part finale was nice, though, except for the superpowered ponies (so obviously done for toy sales) and the titular castle (yuck). I'll probably check out S5 when it starts but at this point we're quickly approaching the bitter end. Still, does this lackluster season mean I now dislike the series? Hell no! I will still say, just as I do with TFOP, that the early seasons were good.

* Speaking of TFOP, I hope to be able to write the second answer essay soon-ish. It'll probably happen around late August, though. I have to concentrate on my commission work first. I have done some groundwork for structuring the essay, though, and I'm thinking about splitting it in two to make it lighter to read. After all, my first essay was probably far too long for most people to get through since I received very little feedback for it.

* As some of you know, I became a hardcore Opie & Anthony listener last year, after discovering the show in late 2011 and slowly getting into it (lingering longer). You can imagine that the news of co-host Anthony Cumia getting fired over "racially charged tweets" (which was basically him venting after he got physically assaulted) was like a punch in the stomach. Recent rumours (with emphasis on rumours) are also suggesting that the worst may actually happen and that O&A will split up into Opie and Jimmy continuing the show with a new co-host while Ant concentrates on turning his Live from the Compound show into a podcast. While the boys each have their own strong points, I cannot see Opie and Anthony being successful on their own. It's a hard thing to swallow but they're like a brilliant rock band: together they produce absolute magic but separately they will flounder and eventually end up running in circles. As much as I love Ant, his weakness is that he tends to ramble on and on about the same thing over and over again if there isn't anyone to keep him flowing from one topic to another (Opie). Opie's strength comes from creating and finding cringe and uncomfortable moments as well as knowing radio shit, but he's not a lightning-fast funny machine (Ant). Jimmy, on the other hand, works well with both hosts even when the other one isn't there and is fantastic at quickly improving humorous lines, but unfortunately he's unable to fill the missing co-host's shoes and tends to follow the remaining host into where ever he is going. Anyway, we'll probably now more on Tuesday evening but goddamn did this news partially ruin my weekend. In the meantime, keep cancelling those Sirius XM subscriptions and continue bombarding the company's Facebook page like it's Jocktober! For more information on how to support Ant, search out #StandWithAnt on Twitter!

* I've seen people mentioning certain TFOP characters that are missing from the current poll. Don't worry, there will be a second one later on. And I haven't forgotten the second Star Wars poll either :)

I like drawing pretty cartoon ladies.

*** IMPORTANT ***

I would like to ask you not to take any of the following text as a "holier-than-thou" statement. I do not wish to imply that I'm "too good" for something, I simply just don't like or care about something and that's all there is to it. Also, the strict nature of the text comes from my frustration of people asking me the same thing over and over and over again. That is bound to irritate almost anyone in the long run.

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST BEFORE SENDING ME NOTES.
I WILL NOT REPLY TO MESSAGES THAT DISREGARD THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES:


- do not request art
- do not ask me to do an art trade
- do not ask me to draw your OCs
- do not ask me to read your fan fic(s)


I will only take these questions account if you can find yourself listed as my friend in the Friends section below.

If you see pics in my gallery that deviate from these rules, they are either old deals made before these guidelines or something I've decided to do on my own will. Call me selfish but I draw mainly for myself as it keeps me motivated.

Commission guidelines and information can be found here: sta.sh/0zze0fytiiy

I welcome critique and suggestions regarding what to draw next, although I will not promise anything. But seriously though, critique is okay, you can be harsh too, I won't start crying over something like that. After all, the purpose of proper critique is to help people improve and become better at what they do.

ALSO, DO NOT:

- trace from my art
- edit my art without mentioning it's edited (see below)
- repost my art as yours

Keep in mind that those stealing my art WILL get caught and I will spread the word to my colleagues about them. I will also write a journal entry where I offer proof of the said delinquency. Repeat offenders will get their names added to my list of blocked deviants.

I do not necessarily mind edits (such as nude edits, colour changes, removing/replacing characters, meshing my art with other people's art) but please, make it clear that it's not 100% my work anymore. If you absolutely feel like editing my art, please include 'Edited by' and your signature. Please note that simply tracing my art and releasing it as your own does not count as an edit.

Even if I draw fan art of BH cartoons, I'm not necessarily very fond of them (but I do like the early 'TFOP' episodes).

You know they're doing a comic crossover between TMNT and Ghostbusters?

Nope. Does it involve the 1987 TMNT characters or any of the new ones?

Think it involves the characters from the IDW Comics.

Ah, not familiar with those (except for Schoening's Ghostbusters designs, which I like).
