|A simple game to play with your friends or at cons!|
Since the previous goal was reached (Oh my GOD you guys are so awesome, thank you!), there's a new goal! Same as last time, if the goal is reached, I will do my best to have an extra update! :3
The purpose of the tipjar is to help me maintain my DA subscription. When more people watch and comment nicely on Eldritch, I'm more encouraged to continue making and sharing it (as opposed to keeping it under my hat.) Being able to display it nicely and slideshow my favorite pages helps me attract readers. Thus, having enough points to have a paid subscription helpes me make Eldritch. Roundabout and strange, yet true.
A Blank Page is an Adventure That Hasn't Happened Yet.|
Come Adventuring With Me.
Hehe, you know, once, one of my professors told me that if you’re an artist, art is like breathing --You have to do it whether you like it or not.
I disagree. If you’re an artist, art takes your breath away --You can’t wait to try things out, good ideas or not.
Art is a passion, a discipline, and a livelihood. I’ve scratched out my share of grunt-work. This or that for professors who wanted drippy paintings. But it’s these, my real pieces, that I find myself not illustrating with pencils or markers or paint. The soul, the spirit, is the greatest artistic tool anyone can ever own... and thankfully, we all have it, ‘Trained’ artists or not. Art itself is the unending adventure, and at the same time, it is also the means of recording the adventure
Thanks for being gentle with my work, my records… thank you for sharing my adventures with me. And thank you for encouraging me to keep having them.
About my gallery:
You’ll find a variety of things here, ranging from crafts to costumes to flatwork and comics. However, most of it is fantasy themed in one way or another, so, I consider myself to be a fantasy artist. There are several available folders to the side of my gallery, to allow you to skip just to what interests you.
You may note that in many of my deviations, there is a lengthy, italicized description, or story-like narration to the work. Unless otherwise stated, these are not quotes, but are my own writings, as told by a character of mine, “Seamus.”
I love to learn and research a plethora of subjects and will often incorporate what I know to my pieces, by writing stories to go with them. However, please understand, that while many of these are based off of mythology, history or science, I will reinvent history, modify mythology, and will twist science as I see fit to tell the story I like. I have no desire to mislead anyone, please, don’t take these writings as “fact.” If you are curious, I will be happy to inform you which tidbits are true, which are invented, and what my sources or inspirations are for any particuar piece.
Along with my normal plethora of pieces and stories, you may notice a lot of comic pages. These belong to my webcomic project, Eldritch. If you’d like to read it, please visit the first page here: fav.me/d1tgytj . Please note that it is intended for mature audiences, but I will try to keep it fairly family friendly in most cases. It updates on Wednesdays and incorporates a plethora of characters and concepts from my gallery, ranging from werewolves to good ol’ Seamus.
Once again, thanks for visiting!

So, I’m wondering what you guys think of the possible inclusion of adult content in my galleries?
I’ve been here for 13 years, and have had so many things happen, both good, and bad. I’ve met kind, fun, people. And assholes. And creeps. And people who became friends. I have tried my best to avoid anything controversial (and failed sometimes). And I’ve learned that no matter what I make, someone will take offence to it, and another person will fap to the same thing.
With Eldritch ending, I have time to consider what I plan on doing in the future. Comics will happen sometimes, I know, but I think my graphic novel days are done. So, long story short… I’m thinking of sharing adult content, ranging from tasteful nudity, to intimate scenes inclusive of a variety of genders and sexualities (because equality rocks, yo), to less tasteful things, including fetishes some may not like. I’m considering this for a multitude of reasons… for one, guys, I have a BFA. I had to draw nekkid people all the time. Many classical works include nudity. I just do not find a nude form offensive, and I think people need to calm down a little. Another, I can mark things as adult content, and those who do not enable such content won’t even see it—no one has to see it if they don’t want to. In addition, frankly, while I am aware that some see erotic content as vulgar, or even amoral, I am of the opinion that it’s fairly harmless, and can even be beneficial. Furthermore… frankly, guys: Sex sells. Odds are, if I open up for commissions, I will be able to attract more customers if I’m able to produce such content. I’m an adult, and poor as hell.
My main galleries are here, and on Furaffinity, and I’m trying to figure out what to do… Post all the content everywhere (where allowed, I know DA is finnicky)? Leave DA squeaky clean and post all the adult stuff on FA? Or even make a separate, after-dark account (which seems silly because, well, people can just turn off adult content. Not hard…)? What are your thoughts on all of this, guys?
