My last journal update of any import was a few MONTHS ago, and as anyone watching me can tell, there has been next to no activity here during that time. Since this relates directly to several still outstanding commissions (see why I don't ask for money up front?) I figure I'll get everyone all up to date in one go as succinctly as possible.
First things first, why my activity has been pretty much non-existent.
As I mentioned in my last journal, I took up a second job as a manager of a branch of a house painting business on top of my job as a Sales Associate at Home Depot. I won't get into nitty gritty -mostly because I'm under contract for the next two years and CAN'T- but basically shiz happened, I quit/was let go from the painting job and had to pay back some 1800 dollars in training and licensing fees and the only reason I was able to get it paid off was because my parents stepped in and paid it off for me. I'm currently paying them back with additions on top of my rent now that I've been forced to move back in with them.
So, lost one job, moved house, had the other job position updated to a permanent position which has given me more hours at a consistent rate, haven't had the chance to really unpack anything due to work schedule, and as such have misplaced my graphics tablet. I literally JUST found the damn thing last night while I was digging through some of the boxes of junk, and I've been here at my folks for just a little under a month.
Yes, I am still working on completing everyone's outstanding commissions, especially considering the stupidity that caused such delay, though I must unfortunately admit that nothing has advanced since the last journal update.
On top of misplacing my graphics tablet, I lost track of my primary sketchbook for about two weeks, and my scanner was also buried under junk until yesterday when I finally was able to move a desk into my space. Still cleaning it up for use, but once I'm able, I'll be scanning in what pieces I've gotten finished or to a point where progress is actually viewable so those of you who have heard of me making progress but not seen any will be able to see that yes, your commission IS being worked on, it IS still in progress, and I WILL be getting them done as soon as I am physically able.
Again, I apologize for so much delay, and I hope everyone is doing okay in the meantime.
Lastly, the progress charts relevant to said commissions:
In order of nearest to completion-
Femme!Eddie 70% sonicsora (flat color complete, needs highlights/shading)
Ophelia 50% sonicsora (inked)
re-drawn rabbit dragons 40% RabbitileRex (3 of 5 inked)
pimp!Maximus 10% RabbitileRex (had to restart the sketch, the previous version was ruined by coffee ><)
If I've missed anyone, please contact me ASAP via note, thank you.
