So. It's been what, over a year now? Yeah things have definitely changed.

First of all, as I'm sure anyone here has noticed, I stopped using the internet, minus Facebook and email. This means Livejournal, DA, FA, Squiby, IMs - basically everything except Facebook and email. o_o I don't expect anything to change along those lines any time soon, as work is still incredibly busy, plus side projects and class. And, life in general.

Anyway, just wanted to let those of you know. In case.

---
I did get a couple questions asking about sprites, so I'll try to answer them here.

Q) Can I use [this sprite] for my personal site/avatar/other?
A) No. These sprites were created for specific individuals and cannot be used by other people for other purposes. The only exception to this rule is if I've written that a sprite is for free use, and I haven't done that yet.

Q) Can you make me a sprite?
A) Nope. I'm closed for pretty much all art right now, commissions, trades, or otherwise.

Q) Can you work as a sprite artist for my company?
A) Nope. Same deal.

Sorry folks.


Also, this post makes me sound mean I think. It is just late, and I am tired. G'night. Hope all is well in DA land.

HI ALL I'M NOT DEAD

Wow, it's been a few months, hasn't it? So basically I started a full time job and gotten really busy with everything, which is why I've pretty much disappeared from the internet. o_o Still, I managed to somehow make it to FC and actually sell some stuff, what.

It was fun though, and I'm sitting in my mom's house with :iconinki-drop: and :iconflying-fox:, being cold and drinking tea. :) It was good to see people! I wish I could have taken :iconvantid: home with me but oh well. ;_;

Also apparently there is a large dead spider in my bathroom. I guess I should go fix that. :)

Hopefully I'll be able to port some more art soon. This con was literally the first time in months that I did anything that wasn't a Phytocat. :P

Quick update:
Icon commissions are closed indefinitely. Sorry, I know I didn't get to do everyone's icons, but things have been changing a lot for me recently, and I no longer feel I can put my full ability into these. I'm going to finish the ones who have paid, but that's it.

Sorry again, I feel really bad. :/

Hey guys,

Sorry but something... came up. I won't be available to work on anything for a couple of weeks.

If you don't want to wait, I completely understand and can give you a refund. Let me know.

Thanks. Sorry.

As I'm sure you've noticed, I just uploaded a bunch of stuff from the AC Art show. :3 I actually have some other pieces to upload, like badges and things... but I'll do that tomorrow. x_x

Thanks for all the watches and stuff, everyone!! <3

Okay so... yeah. Big art dump from Califur, sorry for spamming your submissions page!! :O Look, I even posted non-sprite work! XD Don't worry, you'll see plenty of those again soon.

Whew. Tired now. XD

I'm back from Califur and getting some homework done. ;) It was a pretty neat con, considering I knew about 3 people going. X3 Smaller than what I was used to though, those being FC and AC.

Also yeah, I'm going to AC in a few weeks. Gotta prep for that! :P

Also, go download SteamTank! :D

So our game has been approved! :D Yay!

Now I don't pretend to know anything about downloading apps for iPhones, but I'm sure you guys do. X3 The game is called SteamTank, and it's a simple little shooter set in a steampunk world, with all the artwork done by yours truly. :3 It's what my friend and I have been working on for a while, basically everything I've done that's not a dragon. XD

You can buy the full version for only $0.99! There's a free version too, but I think you miss out on some of the functionality and artwork. =P

So pleeeeeeeeeease take a look! And spread the word? *puppy eyes*

Hey guys,

My laptop died last night. :( So... any artwork that I have on there may be gone (though both Rob and I think that it's a motherboard problem, not a hard drive problem). In any case, I won't be able to do anything art-related until I get this fixed, so sorry to those of you who are waiting on stuff. D: D:

I've ganked Rob's computer for now. Thankfully we're both big nerds so we have extra computers lying around the house. ;) So, I'll be able to check email every so often, but aside from that, nothing else really. D:

BBL GUYS

[edit] Done for today, thanks for coming everyone! ;3

So I've realized that I completely forgot to post on DA that I've been doing ustream stuff for like over a month. o.o Oops. XD;

The last couple of days, I've had my stream up and running. I like having it up because if someone's watching, I feel bad wasting time browsing the web or something, so I get more art done. :3

Posted a bunch of stuff from the FC Art Show. Gotta get my stickers up here too, and some badges, and then I'll be done with my FC art. :)

Thanks for all the comments/faves/watches already, guys! <3<3

Just a heads up to those of you going to FC! I'll be there, tabling in the Artists' Alley as usual, and sitting with :iconflying-fox:, :iconblackmane:, and :iconnambroth:! WOO we all made it out this year! :D :D It's going to be crazy. CRAZY. AND EPIC.

Yeah, I have art to show that I did for my panel in the art show, but I'm prooooobably not going to get around to posting that till afterwards. ZOMG LAST MINUTE WUT.

See you guys there! :)

Hi all! I know, been forever. o_______o Sorry!!

But after not checking DA in like 3 weeks, I found out one of my sprites was featured in a news post on 11/19, here: news.deviantart.com/article/62…. How neat is that. :3

Anyway, I have one to post for now, and I've got a couple more to do. I've been working on stuff for DragonClash also (www.shalkith.com/dragonclash/), but you can't see it yet, hehehe. XD

Hope you all are doing well this holiday season. :3

I've been thinking about this for a while, and I'm going to go ahead and do it. :3 I'm opening up sprite commissions again, officially!

Examples:
www.kiohl.com/images/livejourn… www.kiohl.com/images/livejourn… www.kiohl.com/images/livejourn…

The warning: I'm not particularly fast. o.o Sometimes, if I have the free time/motivation, I can get them done in a day. Sometimes it takes longer, even up to a few weeks. If you're okay with the possibility of waiting, then we're good. :3

I think 2 slots is good for now. They're $15 each.
1. Backdraft
2. Zuke

Also: I will go into your userinfo/journal and look for your interests, to get ideas for your sprite. ;) If you have a problem with this, uh, suggest something instead. :P

Thanks! :3

[edit] Thanks for the interest, everyone! :D After I finish these, I'll open up for more. ;)

Just uploaded a couple of marshmallow badges. :) I was doing a TON of these over at AC, and they were surprisingly popular. o.o Like, they made up 75% of my sales. o.o Weird. XD

I have a couple more to submit but they're not uploaded at the moment. But, would anyone be interested? They're $25 per. ;)

I'm also considering doing pixel sprites again. Hmmmmmm.... Let me get back in practice and then I'll probably open up for them. :3

EPIC. Both the con and afterwards! :D I'd post my writeup here, but I don't think you guys want to be subjected to such a giant wall of text, so...

kiohl.livejournal.com/239630.h…

There's the link to my LJ instead. :)

I should post photos here. *nod*
