Friday Night Streamtime!

Going to be finishing up Shaze’s and hopefully Azzy’s pics today!  Going to give it my best shot!

Stream begins in about 20 minutes at 10PM EDT!  See you there! n.n

Something of great potential.

Ah!  Finally some explanation forthcoming!  More or less.

As I always say, feel free to visit our Patreon or vote for us on TWC.  It helps out quite a lot!

I've been a bit busy... There's quite a lot to do.  

I have stuff for Patreon to do still, and I've got a lot of commissions and such to deal with.  
I'm doing my best, but I fear that it may negatively impact the production of the comic on a larger scale.
I've been having a hard time mustering the creative will lately, and it's just been more advantageous
to work on my paying work, as much as I love this comic. 

I'm going to try to get on through page 100, and at least to the end of this scene,
but I fear an actual break may be in order, at least until I can be assured of our solvency.
It's not an emergency, of course.  I can do it if I focus, because I'm no longer behind,
but I do need to focus in order for things to remain that way. 

This is the last push before things get better, I hope. We'll see what happens.
I'm not saying anything for sure just yet.  But we'll see. 

I just wanted you all to know that I don't take these sort of things lightly.  I hate it when comics just get
dropped and never picked up again, but I won't let that happen.  It just might be kind of quiet for a while.

Thanks again for sticking with me.

I'll see you all soon.  ~Spooky

No Stream Tonight

I’m feeling rather under the weather.  I think I have sinus issues and I feel rather tired and just very run down tonight.  I’m going to clean up around here, make some food, get cleaned up and that sort of thing.  I’ll be finishing Shaze’s and Azzy’s picture on Friday as planned.

See you then!

Monday Night Streamtime!

Going to be doing some conscript stuff for Zedd, and then some VH and personal stuff before and after, so let’s have a good time! n.n

picarto.tv/foxsaliant/

Stream begins in about 25 minutes at 10PM EDT!  See you there!

Hey, peeps!

It’s been a bit rocky over the last week or so.  I’ve been kind of creatively burnt out and tired, but things are going okay, so I’m sure I’ll get to feeling better soon!  We’ve still got a lot of stuff to attend to, so let’s have a look at it.

Announcements and Business

===

(6/4) Update Schedule for Various Happenings to be sporadic for summer.

Due to the amount of work to be done both in reference to my commission work and things around my home, the weekly updates for Various Happenings are going to become a bit sporadic for the next few months while I focus on working down my commission list and straightening out a few things that have been on my to-do list for a while.

I wanted to try for every other week, but a bout of sickness meant that I didn’t quite get to making a full page last week, which was a bit upsetting.  Hopefully, since I have time scheduled out, I’ll be able to finish up the page I have in progress and start on the next one so it’ll be up on Friday as per usual.

The comic is not going on complete hiatus; updates will just be slow coming, and I can’t promise a page every Friday. I was considering taking a break AFTER page 100 and finishing the conversation with Lyle, however, it will take another month at least to get there from the current pace, and I need to make time to address my other work for the moment.

If you want to make things easier on me, please consider joining my Patreon, which goes directly into feeding my projects.  The minimum is only a buck, and every little bit helps bring my projects to life. I’m hoping one day I’ll be able to support myself on merchandising and crows support rather than having to constantly trawl for commissions and every new patron is one step closer to that goal.

==

(5/21) Commission Slots OPEN!!

It’s that end of the month AAAAUGH! for rent and all that, so I’m opening up slots!  Due to some unexpected money issues (we didn’t get some money that we thought we were getting due to paperwork problems/miscommunication), I’m increasing the remaining number of slots to six (6)!

If you want to commission me, send me a message and we’ll discuss it! If I run out of slots, I’ll put you on the call list so I can get to you once something opens up!

Commission Post is here: 

Commissions Open!Commissions are Open!
(Updated: 5/23/2018)
I’ll be opening spots for simple commissions (up to three characters), for bills and such.  
Things are going alright, but that end of the month rush for rent is going strong and I need to pull in some cash, so I’m going ahead and opening some slots!  I’m going to have eight open for these types of commissions!  I also have things available like portraits, character sheets, and the wobbles, too!
Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for delivery.  I’m... really busy, but I’m just gonna keep plugging away at these as consistently as I can.  If you want to see them streamed, then let me know and I’ll contact you when I’m ready to schedule it for you.  Any time sensitive stuff (like you need it done in less than a couple weeks) will require a surcharge for rush delivery. 
For more detailed information, visit my site here: 

The list is on my spreadsheet, which is here:  docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…

My commission prices are here: foxsaliant.com/Commission.htm

If you want to contact me about commissions you can note me at dA, FA, or Inkbunny (links are at the bottom of this post) or you can e-mail me at commission(at)foxsaliant.com !

Things like the Lil’ Wobbles are still available and don’t count towards the slot count. If you’re interested in those, drop me a line!

===

As always, I would like to send out my thanks to everyone who supports my Patreon!  I’ve got some ideas for things moving forward that you all might like, but for now we’ll see about getting the list checked off before I go about making any changes.

Milestones & Highlights!

Let’s see how things are going!

As of right now:

That’s a lot of numbers!

I’ve been kind of burnt out creatively lately and my will to work on my own projects has been kind of non-existant.  I have plenty of ideas and things I want to draw, but getting up the motivation to do so has been difficult, to say the least.

Still, I want to have a comic page done by Friday, and work on some of the Haylee stuff I’ve been putting off.  My sleep is getting more regular and I’m doing a bit better as far as my time management goes.  Plus, we’ve been able to clean things up around the house a bit, so that’s alright.

Once I get the current set done (the ones that are due by July 8th) I’m thinking about taking a week just to work on my own projects and getting things nice and organized.  Wish me luck!

As always, if you want to ask me questions about my work, feel free to e-mail me at sali(at)foxsaliant.com or pm me either here, or at my deviantart or inkbunny (links are below).

If you want to help me out or see stuff that I can’t quite show off yet, feel free to visit my Patreon and contribute! If you just want to help, check out my website over at Foxsaliant.com for general info and donation links! I set up Ko-Fi for those of you who are still skittish about Patreon but want to toss something my way anyway, so if that appeals to you, go ahead and throw something over there!

Midsummer is this week, so I hope you’re all doing well.  We’re getting into the hottest part, so try and stay cool out there!

What is GURPS?

It's a roleplaying system like D20 or FATE.  It's one that focuses on having a tremendous amount of rules for everything (so that you can do literally anything with it) so it's incredibly nerdy and math intensive, but it can be rather fun.

You're more than welcome to comment on my works. nvn  I do my best to go through the comments and reply to things when I can, though some things get buried for a while, and I don't get to them in a timely manner.  I try to though! X3

I'm not sure what you're getting at.  Are you trying to be a creeper or something?
