A brief update

Mostly this update goes out to anyone who has commissioned me for anything and has yet to see or hear soemthing about it. I hate to admit it but I know there are more than a few of you. Please get in contact with me, either via skype or the tumblr inbox there. I want to be absolutely certain of everything I have to do, and make sure that something that was agreed on, however long ago, will still happen, or some other agreement can be reached. I’m many months behind on a lot of this shit and I am very much aware of the fact. I want to get everyone taken care of and then not do commissions anymore, I seem to be pretty fucking bad at making them happen. I really apologize the delay and really want to make it work out for everyone involved here.

As far as personal life stuff and addressing the various “where’ve you been” comments: I’m very lucky to be able to post this at all, and I’ll leave it at that

<3, Tripsy

sometimes I think my crossovers are a little too obtuse to be funny
I don’t know, is it still a joke if I’m the only one laughing?

reblogging it to here just because. (what the hell should I even post here for lack of pony content, anyway?!)
AUCTION NEWS&#8230;
so, the auction post currently sits at somewhere around 35 votes out of the 50 I was looking for. however, I do what I want so I&#8217;m going to call it close enough and just go for it anyway. expect to see a post about it going up here sometime in the next couple days!

I’ll be using a Random Number Generator to pick the winner. For the timeline for the artbook to remain consistent, I need the project voting completed by the end of March.You can see the project page here: http://offbeatr.com/project/going-classical-greek-mythology-collab-adult-artbook-58998173679The winner will have their character in the artbook, the only rule is, it will be Greek themed in costuming and setting and nothing too outrageous.

because missing e is fucking up and not allowing me to reblog myself: we’re about halfway to the goal of an auction. like/reblog the previous post to show your support (if you actually support such a thing!)

auction

I guess I can’t reblog my previous post about this ‘cause it’s a message answer. Anyhow, a reminder that I am entertaining the idea of doing some kind of silent auction for some of the original pencil on paper arts that you may have seen floating around this blog before. I think I’ll be doing a few drawings at a time (two or three? possibly more?) for further enticement… still kicking around ideas here.

However, I won’t bother to set it up unless I know that people are actually interested in this and I’m not just going to waste my time and yours setting up something that nobody will participate in. So, if this is something that sounds interesting to you and (here’s to hoping) you’ll be able to throw in a bid, leave a like on this post. I’ll choose a nice, round, arbitrary goal number - how about 50 notes in order to get it going?

tl;dr 50 likes/reblogs on this post for an auction

have some old pony related sketches to increase your motivation perhaps? (now with more clop to FURTHER increase your motivation)

You could hold a silent auction and have people email you a bid and put in a special subject line for easy sorting? Just clearly specify the start and stop times and do auction ending warnings on your tumblr.

Seems practicable; any interest in this, followers?

If this gets “enough” likes I will make this happen.

originals auction?

or something?

I’m in pretty bad need of money, but can’t take on any commissions right now (still have several in the backlog that desperately need finishing). so, as an alternative, is there any interest out there in purchasing any of my original pencil on paper drawings (like that hand-dick lyra or vinyl’s plotshot or whatever else), maybe via some sort of auction or something? I have no idea how such things work so I’m asking your collective input

thoughts?

I don't want 'better' artists, i want you, baby! You do whatever you want, i like your blog for your style. -Le smiley face-

Even if I started drawing Littlest Pet Shop?

(just kidding I would never fucking do that to you guys, I like you way too much)

I think your ponies are really adorable! I don't like that you're quitting them entirely in such a manner, but I look forward to whatever else you draw. Just don't stop drawing entirely, alright? The world will get worse without you!

There’s no way that I’m going to stop drawing (and I’m not even 100% guaranteeing that ponies won’t come back - I just want to shift the focus of my work away from them - for instance I still have a pony related video game project thingy in the works along with those aforementioned commissions) so you don’t have to worry your pretty head about that, anon.

Do you have another art blog?

My other blog is here. It’s my retro gaming art/concept art dumping grounds and completely SFW as well, if you or anyone else cares about that sorta thing

oh, and thank you everyone for the supportive words. it definitely takes the sting out of watching those followers drop off.
