Hello everyone its been another long while since I've poped up with any updates but with good reason. For the most part I've been working my butt off literately. Working and changing from one job to another and getting everything settled along with holiday seasons starting up I got swamped quick. However I've bee taking care of some things one pay check at a time so that Life isn't so shity as you all know how that can be like. I now work a Toys R Us full time and train new employees due to my long running with the company and now work side by side with my brother Graham Mace, witch is actually not as bad as  thought it would be we keep each other on track and keep each other company to share the work load of a over night truck with 1000+ boxes of toys for the holiday. Luckily there are more peeps to help out with such a task but it does take allll night to finish the job we are giving and if anyone knows what its like to work a graveyard shift.( respect fist bump.) But besides all of that out of the deal I got a somewhat new car and its certainly better then my old station wagon. So all in all things in my regular day to day activities have been going well, stressful at times but well.

Now on to the more important matter art and art content. Don't you just hate it when you go to do something make a big kadoo about it with much boastfulness and then turn around and end up putting your whole foot in your mouth not three seconds later? 
Yep! I really tasted sneakers and boots these past few months and let me tell you, it hasn't tasted well. Theses couple of moths have been dedicated to getting myself on track with reality and helping myself out with independence. That including a steady pay flow of money, its not much at the moment but its allowing me to get things for the comic,artwork and a few other things I would have never been able to achieve on the path I was taking as an artist. sometimes you got to take a step back, breath and look at what its is your trying to do. and in truth for a Loooong while the I got lost in a big way. My mind wonders off without a map and having to retrace your steps can be tricky if you had no idea where it is you came from in the first place. and that as been the comic and the content DD holds a very special place in my heart as well as a few other here on DA and that last thing I want to do is toss it aside. Rather the opposite really I want it to be better I want to give it to you without delay and the most important thing is I want to do is tell it to you without any confusion. So to wrap this all up I'm looking to do things in a better way then what I was doing them in in the first place my experiment worked and now I wish to make it grow and flourish into something worth while. I hope it will be a story I've held onto for a long time and I hope all who will read it will enjoy it too. but in order for me to do this I must have everything ready so that once I get started on it, there will be no stopping it once it gains momentum. At least that's the plain for it. I've been doodling concepts after concepts for the past few year and I think I am almost ready to really start on what I hope it to be my legacy. Just a few more things to do, and then I'll be home free. I have a healthy stack of art work in mean time but no way to share it or even edited it so that its ready for uploading so I think you will all know once the art work starts flowing again it will be a good sign.

as always I thank all of you who have been with me for this long and I will be looking forward to chatting with you soon. ^^

Hello AuroraArt! (hugs.) I'm doing good. ^^ I've working my butt off too much, it feels like forever since Ive really chatted with anyone on DA. How have things been?

Jacob, where's the art? At almost 50 I don't have as much time as others! :O

The next piece of fan art is almost done, Rune and Vixey vs. a Toy Spider. Other characters are involved, too. But with me, line art takes time, especially after working on fence repair. Still, it may be done by Wednesday!

I'm really really Sorry Bruce, since June It feels as thought I haven't been able to stop for anything since I've been working nothing but odd jobs and now have a permanent position at toys r us now. its been crazy.  On the side of that the printer that I got for my laptop isn't really working out so I'm more or less saving money for a list of things I'm gathering to help me out with my problem. I have several stacks of art work and no way to share them on DA witch sucks balls.

Wow that's really awesome. sorry I didn't check DA sooner. been very busy with work and such. its a very nice job on dalkens face. I'm sure even he would like it. ^^

Considering my horrific artistic abilities, I'm happy that I could at least get it to be recognizable as Dalken. I'm slowly improving my skill with the pencil but it's still rather difficult for me as my brain very much dislikes me forcing it to think artistically.

Keep at it the skills that you gain never really go away as long as you use them. Coloring and blinding will be also a fun experience.
