Seeing as how it’s still July 4th in much of the western hemisphere, Happy Independence Day to those of my followers who live in the States!  And happy...uh...bald eagle drawing to everybody else...?

To everyone who replied with such encouraging and thoughtful remarks on the posts where I alluded to my current situation and mental state during the past month, thank you so much.  It’s really been a relief to know that people are alright with me not posting anything that I feel proud of at the moment.  It’s been a rough couple of years for me, and the last few weeks have been among the worst I’ve known in my life.  But hey, life moves on, and if it doesn’t wait at least I can know that there are people who will understand.  So again, thank you.
Also wanted to give everybody a heads-up that I’m going to be traveling during the next half-month or so, and during the first week I’ll be staying in a somewhat remote area with no internet and very limited cell service, so apologies in advance if I miss a post or two during that time.  I’m hoping to get the queue set up for at least the next week but I can’t guarantee that it won’t slip between the cracks somehow and we end up with a blank post or two.
Here’s a monster skeleton doodle I did the other day because you guys know by now that when I don’t know what else to draw I can at least come up with a dragon or some other weird critter.

Still having a bit of trouble coming up with ideas for original art at the moment, so here’s a sunset I saw the other day.

Starting this month, I’ll be dropping down to posting twice a week (12 am Tuesdays and Fridays KST [UTC +9]), for two reasons: first, I’m still trying to ease back the posting schedule so I’m not dropping off cold turkey in early September, and second, I might be traveling this summer, in which case keeping a more frequent posting schedule wouldn’t be practical.
But!  Since I’m participating in TRSB, I’ll be slightly active for a little while after the LOTR show’s release date because TRSB’s timeline exceeded my original plan on when I was going to be leaving.  (Also, for anyone who’s new since my last update about this, I’m leaving this Tumblr blog--and most social media--for an undetermined length of time after Amazon’s LOTR show comes out.  I’m not deleting my blog or anything, of course, since I very well might come back someday, but there’s a small chance I won’t.  If that’s the case, I’m still going to be posting stuff on DeviantArt [and maybe my other art blog], so you can find me there if you don’t mind fewer comics and more digital pieces, and there’s also a very, very slight chance I’ll pop back in here for a post or two at random times.)

Okay so I keep seeing people talk about how they accidentally put the lineart on the sketch layer and while I’ve done that a couple of times myself, something that keeps it from happening regularly is alpha locking the sketch layer AS SOON AS YOU’VE FINISHED IT.  That way if you start to put the lineart on that layer you’ll realize something is wrong immediately rather than spending ten minutes drawing only to have to undo it all once you notice.
Dunno if this will help anybody, but I thought I’d mention it anyway.

Are you watching the owl house?
I'm not, though I've seen a bit about it on my dash.  I know practically nothing about it though, aside from it having something to do with palisman something-or-other and magic.  Might look a bit more into it eventually.
I don’t have any art that fits this reply, so here’s a desert landscape I drew last year.

Yoo, I'm a bit late but beware the Ides of March! Hopefully no one got stabbed---
Thanks, nobody in my life was stabbed on that day.  I hope everybody else can say the same.  Also happy St Pat's, while we're on the topic of holidays I almost forgot about this year.
Here's a cheetah because that's pretty much all that I drew today.  It has nothing to do with any holiday right now but it’ll have to do.

I didn’t do much art in the past few days but I did draw some dragons so here are a couple of those I guess.

Happy Lunar New Year!  And to any Korean followers (I’m not sure if I have any, but just in case) 새해 복 많이 받으세요!
Tumblr media
I can’t believe I forgot to queue a post for lunar new year...I could blame it on me being in the United States right now where there isn’t as much widespread hype about it so I didn’t go “oh I should make a special post on the blog”, but I’m still ashamed of myself.  So here’s a tiger to apologize for my oversight.  Again, happy new year!

Just giving a bit of advance warning that beginning in February I’ll be posting approximately once every three days (to be more specific, it’ll be on the 3rd, 6th, 9th, etc. up until the 30th, and then the next post on the 3rd of the next month; but there might be exemptions here and there for special days) instead of every other day, sort of as my first step to gradually stepping away from social media for an undetermined length of time.  This has been brought to you by: me getting an unasked-for reminder that the Amazon LOTR show is still a thing that’s going to be happening.  (Seriously though, I was so ticked when it just showed up on my Instagram feed.  Like “Ah yes, thank you, I’d almost forgotten. -_-”)

Hey i have a question for you if you dont mind answering. I also want to leave tumblr and i was wondering if you know more about it? I wanna leave completely so do you know how do i do it? And do you know by any chance what happens with the personal informations once a person leaves? Thanks in advance, sry if this was dumb.
If by personal information you mean things written in the posts you've created, if you delete your blog (or delete the posts one by one) the links to all your original posts there will be gone. However, reblogs that other people have made of those posts will still be there. There's no way to clear those off the site now, unless somehow everyone who ever reblogged the post deleted their reblogs, which isn't likely to happen. But aside from that, deleting your blog is the closest thing I know of to clearing all your information off the site, since now those reblogs will be the only way for someone to even know about you. (For any of my followers who might be wondering now: I myself am not planning on deleting my blog or any of its posts when I leave, since I haven't shared much personal information on it so it doesn't seem like a necessary step.)
Hopefully this is what you were wondering. If you were trying to ask something else, feel free to send a followup ask.

Y’all, thank you for reblogging this, I haven’t had a post that got this many notes in a day in...months for sure, I’m not sure exactly how long it’s been.  And it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet since it went up.  This definitely made my day and I’m really happy people are enjoying it.  So to all the rebloggers out there: you guys are the greatest and you really make such a difference to people.

Is there anything you especially like in Russian/Slavic languages? ~curious Slav, shocked that anyone learns one of this f*cked languages from free will (if you're forced to, wink two times)
My favorite part of Slavic languages is the way they sound. There are consonants and vowels in Russian that I don't get to use in any of the other languages I've learned, and there's also a musical sort of lilt to the language overall too. I dunno, it's just kind of fun.
*winks only once because I'm doing this 100% by my own choice*
*however if anyone has any advice on resources for learning Russian I'd appreciate some suggestions because all I have right now is Duolingo and a Russian dictionary*

...I apparently put the wrong dates on EVERY POST IN THE QUEUE for like a week’s worth of posts.  I am so sorry.  There will be a new post going up tomorrow and we’ll be back on schedule.

^Me, checking the dates on the queue because I was ✨suspicious✨

This is maybe just a personal opinion of mine, but the people who reblog art with descriptions are underappreciated.  I never know what kinds of descriptions to write on my own art, but I also know the annoyance of looking for a piece of fanart that you know didn’t have a description on it, so the fact that there are people out there who write descriptions for other people’s work is just amazing and I think we don’t talk about it enough.

Me, every time I find a cool brush on an art program: “This...this is it.  This is the best brush I’ve ever seen.  I’m never using another brush again for the rest of my life.”
Narrator: “Which was, of course, not true, but at the moment it sure felt like it.”

Commissions update
Okay so due to me not having frequent access to a scanner, I’m having to change which commission options I offer.  Basically anything that involves digital art is still available (that’d be sections 3 and 4 on my commissions page), but the stuff that’s entirely traditional medium (section 2 and most of section 1) I’m having to close until whenever I’ve got my own scanner again.  I wish I could keep it all open but I just don’t think it’s fair to offer stuff that might take me a month or more to get to whoever requested it.
On a sort of side note, I read a thing once where someone mentioned it’s not fair to other artists to charge too low of prices on commissions since it can cause them to feel pressure to lower their prices too.  So if anybody wants to take a look at the price list and let me know if they look fair (and if not, what I should be charging instead), I’d really really appreciate it since I haven’t really been able to get input on that before.  I did look at some other artists’ commissions pages to get some ideas but there were other things (like detail level, skill level, popularity of art style, availability, etc) that I had to factor in so I dunno.
