Art Trade Updates

Sun Nov 9, 2014, 6:35 PM

Captain America Shield Stamp by SuperFlash1980Insignia - Autobot by SigmaCore

:star: Quick update for 21 February 2015: Yep, college is a lot of work.  It's been fifteen years since I've been involved with any formal education, and I'd forgotten just how much discipline it takes to stay the course.  Consequently, I have precisely zero free time during the week.  I have some time to do artwork on the weekends, and I will continue to do so as long as my day job and college class do not require extra attention.  

Never fear, I WILL be finishing all of the commissions and art trades on my list.  I will also continue to keep everyone up to date as I roll along.  Progress will continue to be slow.

Art Trade Slots:
01.:iconcrimsonbluewolf: - Tyrachni - in progress, coloring
02.:iconjadethepredator: - Shali and Troi, - in progress, coloring
03.:iconelementaljess: - a gryphon - in progress, coloring
04: :icondragarta: - ACEO of her cat Kraken - planning

thank you for joining my group. there's no restrictions as to what can be posted as long as it's pokemon or dragon related, so you may want to be careful when navigating the group.

I swear to GOD I've clicked the "watch" button for you before, but perhaps I'm losing my mind! :dummy:

Anyway, it's done now. I see your artwork occasionally popping up in some of the clubs I subscribe to, but I'd much rather get it direct from the source. ;)

LOL - I think I've even seen the notification before, too.  Your icon is distinctive.  ;-)  

Glad you're along for the ride.  I assure you, it'll be eclectic.

Haha, maybe I'm not going crazy after all. Hopefully it'll stick this time! :D

I am totally up for it. Bring it on. ;)
